Battletech : The Farscape Campaign

Episode 142 - The Problem With Petrópolis

" The Movement is dead. Hence the name: movement. It moves a certain distance, then it stops, you see? A revolution gets its name by always coming back around in your face. You tried to kill me you son of a bitch… so welcome to the revolution."

Following several months of downtime, the unit reorganizes several aspects of its ground forces, including assigning specific postings for its infantry units and commands scattered across its landholds.

On January 2nd, 3031, the unit gathers their forces and begins a burn out to the jump-point, intending to head to Tequila Beach.

9th of January : Reports come from their JumpShip fleet at the Zenith jump-point of two JumpShips arriving; one Merchant-Class painted in DCMS military colors, and a second Invader-Class in merchant’s colors. After a few hours of snap-burst communications, the fleet disgorges two Unions, a large and ancient Jumbo-Class DropShip and a smaller Gazelle-Class, all of which begin a burn down towards Terramatrix.

While the Iron Dingoes, still en-route to the jump-point discuss the implications of several companies of BattleMechs appearing from the Draconis Combine, they agree to reach their jump-point and then burn back to Terramatrix, deciding to react to whatever that force does, increasing their trhust to arrive a few days before the invasion fleet arrives, provided they operate at a regular speed.

18th of January : Arriving back at Terramatrix, the unit rendezvouses back at “The Factory”, and awaits the arrival of the unknown fleet, though they will operate at less capability, given their increased thrust to reach orbit ahead of them.

19th of January : The unknown fleet arrives in orbit of Terramatrix. The fleet maneuvers itself, and numerous snap-bursts are identified passing back and forth between The Factory, and into the microwave networks on the surface. The unit is further identified as the 7th Cavalry – “The Iron Ponies”. Within hours, the invasion fleet dropped directly on Petrópolis, and engaged the local infantry battalion assigned by Buntar.

Over the next couple days, the local force of the Bloody Hand of Marcosa rises up in support of the invasion, and declares itself the rightful government of the nation. On the 21st of January, they declare themselves the ruling party of the nation, and that the 7th Cavalry is their army. Proof is proffered that a legal contract has been signed under a war bond with the mercenary force through ComStar. By the 24th of January, the entire lands under Petrópolis are declared under their protection, and the problems with Petrópolis rise once more.
