StormWind Dispatches

Sir – The Shining Flame assault in sector B12 has been pushed back for the moment. Casualty numbers are still coming in however the 41st Akaata is reporting in depleted squad strength, I recommend sending a platoon to shore up their position. BV is reporting a heavy assault on their flank in C21 with heavy ground assault vehicles and air support, they are requesting immediate reinforcements in that sector. That area is…hot sir, asset may not arrive on time.

There is also the matter of the volunteer forces. I must insist that incorporating untrained, undisciplined forces will not have the desired effect. I know that our ability to effectively evacuate civilian populations has been cut, but involving them in…this, are you sure?

The counter offensive into sector B21 is progressing. We have encountered resistance as expected, but it seems that the enemy committed a little to much into their assault against the BV lines; our attack should release some of that pressure. I am requesting that we deploy AA/AD assets to disrupt the ability of the enemy to move reinforcements through that sector, and to cover our own retreat as soon as enemy forces shift their positions.

Enemy movements along our sectors has been suspiciously light after their last assault. They may have shifted assets to south to assist in their major offensive. Patrols have been sent out beyond our lines, so we should know for sure soon enough.

I commend you on the assault on sector B21. BV reported that the attack on the enemy flank halted their advance and gave them enough time to fall back to a more defensible position. I agree that the tactical offensive plays to the strengths of our men - You are too incorporate similar tactics in the future.

Unfortunately enemy reinforcements makes our current position untenable. You are to pull back and reposition our forces to sector C9 on the outskirts of the city. Fortify your position and expect heavy assault. You will be reinforced by two additional companies, 10 LAV’s and 5 HAV’s. One of the companies and the assault vehicles are being donated by one of our off world partners - you are to work with their commanding officer in organizing the line. I would suggest positioning them on the flank for rapid deployment and disruptive assaults, however I leave it ultimately up to you. I will be accompanying them to see to assess moral and to inspect the situation on the line.

Al’verdar - A full redeployment to the southern continent is under way. While the full coalition will take some days, StormWind forces are available for operations. Intel suggests that enemy positions are well reinforced. I would advise against any headlong assaults until we can gather further reconnaissance. In the mean time, the local auxiliary forces are continuing their training and have been placed on patrol duties around our local FOB.

Commander Bromm

Commander Bromm,

Allow the men a day of rest. I will be taking out the first infiltration teams 0200 hours to hit enemy infrastructure points, while you are to probe the enemy lines. Your objective is too assess the combat readiness along the sectors and recon for any way through. You know the drill Bromm - avoid any direct confrontations. Hit and Runs only.

The Auxillary 2nd Platoon is reporting enemy movement along their patrol sector, numbers are not yet clear, however it seems that some Amarrian braggart is taking a small force along for a parade. We have dispatched a secondary auxiliary platoon as reinforcements with more on standby if need be.

Al’verdar - the 23rd Recon unit has discovered a small ford that the enemy seems to have overlooked. While thier positions along the line heavily fortified, here they seem to be weak. I have ordered the 23rd to maintain position and cover the position. We will know if they deploy any reinforcements to this area. Sir, this may where to hit them.

Commander Bromm

Sir – scouts indicate a small town near some strategic crossroads where Amarr presence is light. It appears to be a forward outpost, about a sector Infront of their front line. Removing the Amarr and taking up positions their ourselves would greatly increase our foothold in the southern continent as well as improve our mobile strike capabilities. I’ve ordered 2 regular companies and one LAV platoon to begin preparations for the assault, along with one auxiliary platoon for recon assist.

Commander Bromm

Bromm,

You are to go ahead with the assault. Its position would be a perfect staging point to begin to infiltrate the Capitol City. Prepare an additional platoon of reinforcements in case they are needed. You are to consider its capture as your strategic objective. Once you hold the position, re route any forces that you deem necessary for infiltration and raids. Feel free to reinforce the position as you seem fit, but do not entrench yourself. Keep yourself mobile.

Additionally, prepare 3 units for for long term deployment behind enemy lines. Outfit them with additional food and medicine supplies, and additional firearms. They are to make contact with and and disperse these supplies to the locals under the noses of the occupiers, and to build resistance forces if they can. Once they establish an operating location, have Luitenant Gjador sort out the logistics to keep them and any locals supplied. Lets show these people that we haven’t forgotten about them.

Excellent job on the capture of the town, Bromm. initial reports suggest relatively few causalities among our forces. I’ll expect a full report within the next day. Regarding the captured prisoners, you are to prep them for evac back to HQ where prisoner transfer procedures to hand them over to Republic Command can begin.

With the capture of the town, we can move on to the next phase. The Antimatter generators that the Amarr have installed in the capital city concern me a great deal. Organize a series of teams to slip into the city as quietly as possible. Their objective is gather as much information about antimatter generators and any other key fortification points within the city, while remaining undetected by Amarrian forces. If there are any resistance cells they are free to contact them at their discretion. If any within the Auxiliary are familiar with the city then consider incorporating them into the teams.

Bromm,

I am sending you a full battalion to reinforce your position, with additional Anti Access/Area Denial assets. Scouts are reporting enemy movement on your flanks. Make sure to keep the corridor open and avoid being encircled. We seem to have kicked over the ant hill here - in addition to the increased enemy aerial activity that you reported, allied intel is is reporting increased enemy activity along several other sectors near your position.

As of now your orders are to secure and reinforce the town, but you are to keep evac routes open for quick withdrawal. This amount of enemy movement may prove to be an opportunity, I will speak to coalition commanders as well as reach out to RC and BV command to see how to best exploit this.

Cain’Al’verde

Al’Verdar - inventory of the 10,000 donated personal arms has been completed, with the first drop to our men behind the lines has been successful. it seems these ‘microdrops’ can pass mostly undetected by enemy lines, and serve well enough to keep the small units provisioned, however any significant increase in supplies and weaponry will not go unnoticed. That said, the special units have reported that contact has been made with several communities, with varying success, but it would appear that a small resistance within enemy held territory is beginning to form. As per your orders they have been instructed to aid these communities however they can.

Regarding Commander Bromm and the forces under his command, they are reporting that while enemy area denial has prevented them from mounting a full retreat, they are still holding relatively well. Despite sporadic shelling of the town, moral has held. The advance line is reporting casualties within our parameters for the moment. The Commander has also mentioned that he has made sure to remind the Enemy that there is still fight left in them, and has engaged in minor, sporadic firefights.

Commander Bromm, We have been unable to re-establish communication with the Al’Verdar’s Unit. His status is as of yet unconfirmed. We have his last known position at approximately 10 klicks from the anti-matter explosion epicenter. Unfortunately the blast has taken out all communications with that and all surrounding sector. For the moment, as per Protocol 133, you are the current acting commander until we receive confirmation of his status.

Lieutenant Gjrador.

Sir - I relieved to have heard that you were unaffected by the blast. I still cannot believe that those animals would resort to such low tactics. The men can’t either, and far from cowed, their moral is higher than ever.

The influx of the reinforcements have strained our operation capacity, however the consolidation of the Northern Continent has allowed us to expand our planetary headquarters and for the most part, processing has been done efficiently. As a result, the Stormwinds PMC now has a standing force of 94 thousand men and women and the supplies the keep maintain operations for several months. As per your orders, roughly 50 thousand men and vehicles have been dispatched across the advancing line in coordination with Republic Command and Brutor Vanguard forces. An additional 20 thousand men, vehicles and supplies are on route to our southern command post to reinforce and aid our own advance, with the remaining men kept in reserve.
