Battletech : The Farscape Campaign
Lt. Colonel Carla "Razor" Chestine
Military Leader of New Denver and the Junta of Claybrooke

She also has command over a number of battalion-sized mechanized infantry forces and the innumerable Guardia Civil forces of the planet’s police forces.

Lt. Colonel Chestine is still known to be a capable pilot of her Warhammer BattleMech, and it is rumored that she sometimes goes on extended maneuvers with her forces, when she views a situation requiring her direct hand…
