Rabid Wolves

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.
