Rabid Wolves

Postby Remington von Wolffe » Thu Jan 11, 2018 10:04 pm

Unit: Rabid Wolves
Registry: FS-RD-04-02
Status: SUCCESSFUL
From February 1st 3097 to March 1st 3097

CONTRACT SUMMARY:
The Deuces Wild, on Merope as a security detachment, took part in the savage fighting for control of Armidale, the capital of the world. Jason Tian and a light company of mechs teamed up with the Rabid Wolves mercenary company and elements of the AFFS and Wolf’s Dragoons in a series of sharp fights against rebels trying to seize the capital.

Fighting around the StarPort, Armidale Administrative Center and Mercy General Hospital caused considerable damage to the city but destroyed the better part of a company of rebel mechs and supporting infantry forces. Protests continued as the investigations were ongoing. Things escalate suddenly from a direction no one expected; a competent police force. Investigating a person of interest, the Rabid Wolves show up to do an interview...no hard evidence on him....but by chance they show up during a meeting of a rebel cell. Some of the rebels panic and open fire. As the apartment was a major weapons cache and it has some incriminating evidence, the Rebels act immediately. They take to the streets, attack government and communications centers...and someone detonates the nuke at Fort Chadwell. After several clashes, the mercenaries came to realize the identities of their better equipped opponents; Second Regiment of the Plieadies Sabers, the Longwoods Bluecoats and rogue elements of the Taurian Concordat.

There was chaos on both sides....the Rebellion achieved surprise, but they weren't quite ready to move. It's not coordinated. One team of Deuces Wild (Jason's crew) manage to mount up and take on a lance of Plieadies Sabers in the city, temporarily driving them back. Dragoons are out of touch as is the main command of the AFFS. Lauren Keene ends up in temporary command of the AFFS in Armidale. They abandon the administration center and move to the Starport, which is easier to defend. As soon as things started getting rough, Jason's sent word to the Rabid Wolves to keep them in the loop. The Rabid Wolves staged out of the Deuces Wild Union Class DropShip, the Huntress or until they were able to run a conventional fighter blackade and land there own Union Class DropShip, the Spotted Eagle.

The Fighting carried on for roughly six weeks. The early Rebellion seized a number of locations but couldn't quite get a grip on Armidale. The first two weeks were fairly even in fighting....but the rebels weren't professionals and had finite amounts of equipment and limited repair facilities. Once the Dragoons rally things start going bad for the Rebellion. Attrition starts wearing them down. The third week, they start losing ground. The Deuces Wild then led the attack out of the capital to link up with AFFS forces in the city of Tethys, playing a crucial role in crossing the Bolero river and dislodging enemy infantry units there. The Rabid Wolves capture and hold two critical Command Post.

The search for Dwayne and Tamryn Bishop is called off as the fighting escalates. Afterward, the AFFS is finally able to pass on a message that had been set to arrive the day the rebellion began: they had positively identified Tamryn Silvers-Bishop. She was killed instantly in the bombing. No trace of DJ was found....but Jason has his own theories.....

Week four, there's word of Dragoon reinforcements on the way and things started falling apart for the Rebellion. Throughout the fighting, there's rumor of Dragoons committing atrocities in retaliation for losing near a regiment of personnel in the nuke. (One battalion of Mechwarriors and supporting forces). After the Wolf's Dragoons Spider Regiment arrives as reinforcements, the rebellion starts to fail. The fighting winds down as new negotiations begin. The rebellion failed to overthrow the government...but now the threat of another uprising is taken seriously. The bloodshed is enough to bring both sides back to the table more determined to find a solution. No one ever knows for sure who set off the nuclear weapon. It's assumed it was the rebels though their leadership insists they never had a nuke.

Fighting continues on Merope though it has become a guerilla war with the rebels ambushing a resurgent force of AFFS and Dragoons troops. In the wake of the fighting at Tethys, the Deuces Wild were ordered off the world by the Federated Suns, ostensibly because of contract violations; the Deuces Wild are not recognized by the MRBC and their security contract did not cover the extent of a role they played. The AFFS has declined pursuing legal action in return for the mercenaries leaving immediately. Dwayne Bishop shows up sitting on the bridge of the Huntress on the very last day.

Unit: Rabid Wolves
Registry: FW-DC-02-02
Status: SUCCESSFUL
From June 1st 3097 to August 1st 3097

CONTRACT SUMMARY:
The current plan is for Eden's Guard/Rabid Wolves to pose as a charitable infrastructure contractor, building necessary services in areas around the cities and providing basic healthcare, and use this as a means of getting an 'in' with the triads and the businesses. Meanwhile, the presence of our Battle Armor and Battlemech assets will put the Governor ill at ease, and have him wondering why a humanitarian group is so well-armed. He'll either be open to the idea of a Capellan investment into his planet, or sick his Militia on us. If the former, then we can tell our employer he's open to a Capellan takeover, and look like the good guys doing what's best for the planet. Otherwise, we can tell our employer that his successor is open to a Capellan takeover, and look like the good guys defending our noble mission.

Unit: Rabid Wolves
Registry: FW-OC-04-04
Status: SUCCESSFUL
August 1st 3097 to October 1st 3097

CONTRACT SUMMARY:
• The supplemental, will kick off with fighting the Militia, which is trying to bully people out of the boom towns and work camps, and escalates into FWL and Capellan intervention.

• The Rabid Wolves will deploy their lance of salvaged light 'Mechs on the League invasion supplemental contract; looking forward to a sort of strapped together resistance while waiting for the Liao relief force to arrive.

• The Rabid Wolves planned to induct some of the hostages from the Hoover Kidnapping as battleMech pilots and have them operational for the supplemental contract.

• Boluo is on another part of the continent from Bargstedt, making it harder to mobilize Battlemechs from one point to another; hence the need for relaying radio. It would have taken hours for VTOLs to get there, much less Battlemechs, which are significantly slower and do not fly.

• This arc will be more visceral and intimate, with Penelope going 'door to door' trying to dodge the death squads.

• The bulk of the political content has already been done, and we're about to go into a primarily combat section

• Attacks similar to the on Boluo would happen more often as a tactic by the Hoovers, who have seen their armor and Battlemech assets destroyed and/or salvaged by the Rabid Wolves and Eden's Guard, forcing us to respond with vehicles, infantry, and Battle Armor, while our Battlemech assets get tangled up fighting the invading and Militia Battlemechs; all the while the Capellans try to muscle in and the recently formed Council try not to lose their political power to what is effectively an invading military and political force.

• Also there will be more involvement with the late Director's family, hence; the bios for him and all his kids.

• 8th of July: o Penelope is caught in the midst of a Hoover attack on the Bouknights, forcing Penelope and the Bouknight leadership to flee the mansion. o They are caught in the fighting in the city. Penelope and Caitir are separated from the Bouknights, forcing them to move from building to building to keep safe until they can find some kind of communications o While resting, a Hoover soldier find the Trumbull women, forcing Caitir to shoot him when he gets between Penelope and her weapon.
o Penelope gets to a radio station, and broadcasts orders to the Gardeners, who arrive with impunity and clean up the Hoover attackers.
o Mary Berkowitz makes a general broadcast to the public, encouraging them to stand up for their own world, and to look after their own communities instead of waiting for outsiders and usurpers.

• 9th of July:
o Penelope gets returned to the Dyrwyn with the slight made by Caitir forgiven because of Penelope's work to save their leaders.

• 11th of July:
o Hoover condemns the Bouknights, calling them out of touch holdovers, and vows to make Ohrensen a 'Fantastic' League world once again

• 14th of July:
o The hostage situation being handled by the Rabid Wolves.

• 17th of July:
o The Rabid Wolves deploy forces to over watch the Hoover Triad Stronghold, Shenzhen

• 21st of July:
o Penelope calls for the Ohrensen council to assemble. Before he can arrive, Shoga Loew is assassinated by a Hoover attacker. Before the day is through, Captain Daw declares herself the new Director, and orders the Mercenaries to leave.
o At the meeting, Penelope convinces Shoga Ken to allow his mother, Mary Berkowitz, to take on the role of Director instead. o The Council formally requests the Eden's Guard and Rabid Wolves to intervene in the Ohrensen civil war on their behalf, and vows to fund further development according to the EG's guidelines. As part of the agreement, a member of Eden's Guard is appointed to lead the effort, and the Guard are compensated for costs already incurred. o Mary Berkowitz speaks with Penelope, demanding to know more about the group that paid for the Guard's activities. Having already done research and come to the conclusion that they were shell charities and companies, she realizes that the Eden's Guard were hired by the Confederated Magistracy, rather than a mystery board of corporations.

• August 2nd: o Official date of supplemental contract start.
o Captain Daw of the Militia declares herself the Director of Ohrensen.

• 22nd of July to August 23rd
o Eden's Guard and the Rabid Wolves, along with Triad gangs, go to war with the Hoover Triad and the Ohrensen Militia, which is also fighting among itself, under Ken's rebellion.

• August 23rd:
o A House Marik intervention force arrives.

• November 1st:
o A Liao Company of Sarna Sabres relief forces arrive

• November 30th:
o We must be done with the supplemental contract by this date.

Unit: Rabid Wolves
Registry: PY-DC-06-08
Status: SUCCESSFUL
From October 1st 3097 to May 1st 3098

CONTRACT SUMMARY:
Captain Niobe Bey had finished reorging the Great White Fleet. It now consists of a Lung Wang P2, carrying a platoon of Laser Rifle equipped marines, an ASF squadron (2 Troika, 2 Poignard, 2 Defiance) and an Aurora outfitted as a CV carrier. While reviewing possible contracts opportunities she realizes that a lot of possibilities are barred from her due to the GWF's lack of ground forces. Niobe decides to branch out into the realm of Joint Contracts.

Captain Bey is adamant about not taking on contracts that would pit her forces against the FWL although any other House is fair game. She is searching for an opportunity that will allow her new untested space fleet to get thier feet wet. She finds just the sort of mission she is in search of in a Defensive Campaign on Rockawallen and Captain Cathryn Whitley Rabid Wolves answer the call to be her ground support. The GWF's departure was delayed getting the Anshan-turned-Meadowvale back into flying condition. The two Captains converse back and forth while in transit to the mission area via Hyper Pulse Genrator missives and run into lack of understanding, missed cues, and a whole host of simple communications errors compound that with the GWF unit making it no secret of being very pro-FWL.

The Rabid Wolves were offered a little under-the-table cash to spy on the GWF and submit a report to the Maskirovka intelligence agency. The GWF had similar instructions on the Rabid Wolves. Both Captains, unbeknowst to each other, decide that neither was interested in making a living that way.

Captain Niobe Bey, the GWF's political/intelligence leader, will be working alongside Captain Cathryn Whitley face-to-face to avoid this sort of miscommunication going forward. After the two Mercenary Commanders make planetfall and meet in person, their first order of business is meet with their employer liaison on-planet at his office at the company headquarters. Later, the two Captains meet at a local night club over drinks after they meet Cray Milesine and start working together. Captain Niobe Bey is a little more open to discuss certain aspects about her unit away from the employer like chain of command, Cathryn grants Niobe unfettered access to use 2 Caerleons, the Columbian Screech, the Aurora-class Nestling, 2 Wusuns and the Dusky Eagle, and Steel Eagle Flight - 2 Thunderbirds as she sees fit without any farther permission from Whitley required, and other pertinent joint contract issues. Captain Bey decides to assign Steel Eagle Flight to the Purple Jacket, which is employed as a patrol ship in the Rockwellawan system.

For the next two weeks, most of their efforts are devoted to establishing a secure beach head and a safe base camp on the main continent, Corondum. For this operation, the GWF's Troikas and Defiances are going to be assigned to the Purple Jacket. So it can land and offload them and their equipment and support personnel at the established airbase. All four fighters will be utilize in various ground support roles. The Poignards and Thunderbirds are going to dock with the Meadowvale as fighters/interceptors. The Spotted Eagle will remain in orbit with its Aven and Wusun flying escort. The Mercenary units set up an air base on the surface at the IAC airfield near a construction site. Granting their combine AeroSpace Sorties a place to operate from that's closer to the pirates, making it easier to bomb a target, race track back to base, pick up BA or more bombs and return to the target.

Stansill's Bastards remain active all throughout this time. Aided by members of the local indigenous population they have been preparing their next attack.While setting up shop, the mercenaries hear that another colony is attacked. A dropship with loot and captives takes off. The RW Sneak Satellites tracks its trajectory revealing the hidden jumpship that is waiting. It becomes a chase for the GWF Space Assets to stop the dropship and the jumpship before they get away.

The GWF drives the boarding attack on the pirate jumpship and combating the spaceborne traffic and the RW take lead on keeping hostiles from overrunning the Airport base camp. Through an interrogation from the GWF successful boarding attack on the pirate jumpship the Joint Task Force uncovers intel on the Pirate Gang, Stansill's Bastard's in the small city of Perdition, on the other side of the Corondum continent. Elements of the RW Battle Armor Company and the GWF marine platoon perform a joint operation to Snatch & Grab high ranking Stansill's Bastard's Lieutenants thereby eliminating the gang's ability to function. Captains Niobe and Whitley coordinate the operation from back at the IAC Spaceport.
