Twilight of Chaos

Howling at the Moon

2nd Training Battle

As time elapsed on the simulated engagement, the Dragoon referees enabled the security interlocks on all remaining weaponry. The orders being relayed for all units to return to the marshaling area for debriefing and the official findings of the Wargame Observers that would critique the exercise.

Filing into the dusty prefabricated structure at the edge of the training area, dwarfed by the towering ranks of Battlemechs parked laggered around the debriefing room. Seated lecture hall style, the ranking officers, Colonels in the Dragoons, begin covering the meeting engagement from start to finish. Of note, the movement of the lighter scout elements is questioned charging directly against the heaviest Dragoon elements. The Owens survived it’s encounter to attempt a later end run, but suffered grievous damage, taking it’s much needed TAG out of the fight. The Dragoon element commanders are questioned for their choices in going after the mainly annoying VTOL support. Noting that even with the loss of one of the VTOLS, the Helos managed to keep a combined one hundred and twenty five tons of enemy fire off of the main battle line for at least forty seconds. Helping shift the tide of battle towards the Altair Legion’s favor.

The noted use of artillery was praised for helping control the approaches to the vehicular position and the gutsy move to deploy in the line of battle and attempt direct engagement with the Arrow IV’s was something that the wargame controllers had been debating wether or to allow. However they were able to program appropriate values for direct fire behavior into the battle computer on the fly, so allowed it for the scenario. The Artillery is credited with one partial kill, however it is noted that greater communication is required in the future to avoid the pitfalls of blue-on-blue fire. All in all, the Dragoons announce the engagement a Marginal Victory for the Altair Legion. This news will really improve the unit’s stock in the Hiring Hall in Harlech. True to Form, Captain Martha Radick comes to shake your commander’s hand.

“Good work out there today. You proved I have alot more work to do with this company before taking them out in the field, but that does nothing to minimize your accomplishment. I’d drop with you and your boys and girls anytime. If you’re interested, I can put you into contact with contract command. The Dragoons are always looking for solid performers to handle sub-contracts.”
