Incoming Transmission... Star Captain Antoinette
Good showing, MechWarriors, and good on you to be careful with your targeting. Leutnant Mark Erskine, pilot of the Wolverine that surrendered, turned out to be a much higher ranking official with the planetary militia than suspected. They have one Captain, Yvonne Jones, and she is a pencil pusher at the planetary capital. All this, according to Erskine. When I allowed him to open a channel to his superior officer (at gun point, might I note), he has .... suggested to leave the unmarked 'Mechs alone from now on, and to focus on the green pigeons. Captain Jones seemed quite receptive, so that will hopefully be one less thorn to deal with during this operation.
Onto Clan Jade Falcon. They seem to have sent down majority freeborn and solahma troops down to Abbadiyah, judging by the intel we have recovered from Star Commander Yasir. No batchall has been called for from the Falcons as well, and Leutnant Erksine has told us that they did not know how many DropShips have actually landed, or what type. So... the militia have no radar systems, either, and we do not have an approximation on Falcon composition or strength.
In the mean time, the Falcons are searching for this Wreckers' site. They seem like they have a general idea of where it is, but do not have an exact fix. I will keep you posted.
