Talon/Wernke[edit]

The Wernke system boasts two planets of significance to the Federated Commonwealth. Talon, a relatively barren and rocky world, has numerous mineral deposits of considerable value. Wernke, a fertile agricultural planet, is well-matched to Talon, providing much-needed food and water resources. Kallon Industries has a substantial investment in the system, maintaining a ‘Mech production facility on Talon.

Moonlight[edit]

BRIEFING[edit]

Investigate a communication disruption between the supply depot and its attendant orbital launch site.

Castle: Davion’s been losing launch facilities and supply depots all over Talon. Less than twenty-four hours ago, the Antares facility ceased broadcasting work logs, and since then has not been responding to radio or land-line communications. Aerospace recon was forced off by ground fire. The Davion liaison is offering assault wages and full salvage for us to go in and eliminate any hostiles on site.

DURING MISSION[edit]

Spectre: It’s a good bet the Davions are expecting a reprisal this time. Watch your backs, and keep an eye out for powered down spotters.

Castle: Commander, just ahead over that rise you have visual on the depot. Marking depot Nav Point Alpha.

Beowulf: ‘Mech power-up detected. Watch yourselves.

Spectre: Looks like a scout making tracks for the depot. Nail ‘im!

Spectre: Castle! Heavy contact with enemy vehicles and ‘Mechs! No discernable markings.

Castle: Acknowledged. Let me know if you get an ID on any of them.

Spectre: Hrothgar DropShip on site! Not responding to IFF. Consider it hostile, people!

Castle: Looks like it’s in a power-up cycle. You might want to deal with it before it goes online, sir.

Spectre: Copy.

Spectre: Looks like the Black Cobras.

Castle: Roger. They’re a second string mercenary unit. Not the best performance profile on MercNet.

Spectre: Steiner isn’t being too picky these days.

Castle: Don’t get too cocky, sir. They currently rate reinforced company strength, and they must have added vehicle assets since their last audit.

Castle: (If Black Cobra Medium Lance was destroyed in Halloran: Industry Raid): Our old friends in Halloran? How quaint

Spectre: Looks like they were busy rebuilding.

Castle: And its no secret they got little love for us. Watch yourselves

Spectre: Hope they weren’t planning on leaving in that DropShip. Depot secure! All hostiles eliminated.

Castle: Be warned, sir. I show two more lances inbound. Looks like the rest of the Cobras.

Spectre: (If Black Cobra Medium Lance was NOT destroyed in Halloran: Industry Raid): Roger. Spectre elements, prepare for a hasty defense of the Antares Depot.

Spectre: (If Black Cobra Medium Lance was destroyed in Halloran: Industry Raid): Excellent, we will settle this grudge match once and for all.

Colonel Burr: This is Colonel Burr of the Black Cobras. Today my boy, you will get a lesson in payback!

Spectre: We are a long way away from Halloran but you are just as outclassed here!

Spectre: Reinforcements destroyed. The Cobras are history. Castle, let’s get Salvage in here. They’ll be pulling an extra shift just stripping weapons. Report depot status to the Davions, and get TacOps in here as well. I want the mobile field base online in two hours.

Castle: Roger. Salvage en route. Updating mercenary liaison. Castle out.

AFTERMATH[edit]

Castle: The Black Cobras have been routed, and rumors on MercNet point to potential disbandment due to insufficient unit strength. The fight here on Talon is coming to a head, sir. Our next mission could very well decide our course through the rest of the civil war.
