04/04/3065 Location – In Transit to Marius Tears
As MIM Diana Nanae, MIM Andromeda’s Chain, and OAMT Raging Bull burn across the void of space en route to Marius’ Tears. Commander Aracne was contacted by the MIM agents on the ground in Port Atrea. There were more opponents than expected so that would make things more complicated the mission would have to move even faster than anticipated.
Based on those reports she contacted the Andromeda’s Chain and Raging Bull to conduct the briefing. The mercenaries and platoon leaders were all in their ready rooms.
“Alright Gentleman I have received the most up to date intelligence reports and the entire Third Legion of the Marian Armed Forces is on planet with the Titanfellers, a FEDCOM mercenary unit based on our latest Galatea roster. That means we will have more work than anticipated but nothing we can’t handle.
Our targets are located on the Island of Prospero, based on these reports the Third Cohort, a portion of the Third Auxilary corps, and the Titanfellers are there right now. Due to the dangers posed this operation will require an orbital drop it is to risky to land the dropships into hostile territory.
Based on our current inventory we have seven drop pods available. So I will need a pair of Battlemechs to transfer from the Raging Bull to the Diana Nanae to maintain tempo. I will drop first and reconnoiter the area, then signal the drop right onto a proper target. The current first strike is a small airbase on the Eastern portion of Prospero far enough away from Port Atrea that everything should be unloaded before the Legion can respond in force."
Third Cohort of the Third Legion of the Marian Hegemony Armed Forces (Medium-Heavy 1 Mech/ 1 Vehicle)
