Following the failed invasion of the Arachnid homeworld, Klendathu, Sky Marshal Dienes has resigned, replaced by Sky Marshal Tehat Meru. Her new policy is "to beat the bug, we must first understand the bug". But first, we were tasked with restoring order to Tango Urilla, following a reported emerging Arachnid infestation.

With order on Tango Urilla restored, we will now begin deployment in offensive operations against the Arachnids along the AQZ border. At the same time, we will look into exploiting opportunities to learn and understand the bug.

Standing Orders

  • Infantry are to keep their unloaded rifles in their bunks. Ammunition is not allowed outside of the armoury and firing range, unless a General Quarters call is made.
  • Ring bouts to settle beefs are to be observed by an NCO of Cpl+. Failing to do this will result in punishment for all involved.
  • The ring is to be used as a sparring area, or to settle beefs. If you act like a child while doing either, you will suffer. Keep the blows clean and establish rules before starting.
  • Marksman Specialists and Medical personnel have been authorized to carry sidearms while deployed.
  • Troopers are reminded to keep in mind the actions of the crew aboard the Onoda, which enabled us to escape Klendathu.

Operation: Blood Thicker than Water

Gladiator deployed near a bug hive and fought tooth and nail to push through the mountain range. Calling in plenty of artillery strikes and with support of Dagger-1 they pushed through taking minimal casualties. Petrov showed excellence in combat knowledge with his usage of the flame thrower attachment. Dagger-1 eventually crashed due to hopper interceptors. Gladiator moved in to recover and EVAC the pilot. Gladiator was given a choice to pull out but refused and pushed onwards into the hive. Placing two DOTONs and clearing half the hive out with rifle fire alone. Roberts showed excellence in his usage of the M55. Taking out swaths of Plasma and Tanker bugs. Requiring three separate resupplies for his M55 usage alone.

Gladiator placed their DOTONs and ex-filled. A successful detonation of a hive.

Operation Blue Forest

We dropped in to route out and destroy bug holes. So that's what we did. We killed a lot of bugs. And then I decided there was too many bugs for us to handle as a small unit. So we fired a TON to the South east, south west. Then got moving and we fired another TON to the south, and blew them motherfuckers up good and proper, yer.

Intelligent Intelligence

Gladiators was sent out to retrieve research for MOBCOMM on the planet of Chastrilles. Due to lower numbers, a single element was formed directly under my command.

Upon arrival to the first bunker, Gladiators found that the MI garrison that had previously manned it was already KIA. Specialist Ramsey collected the tags and we proceeded down into the bunker.

Once Gladiators arrived to the other end of the tunnel, the plasmas were using a small town for cover in a valley. Once the plasmas were all killed, Gladiators continued West until we reached an abandoned MI Checkpoint while still fighting off the warriors.

Entering into a darker valley, the bugs made use of having the elevated terrain on either side of us. Gladiators kept firing on the move and punched a hole through the bugs before a massive wave of warriors began to give chase.

Once we made it out of the valley, Gladiators were updated with markers on the position of the research facility we were intended to search.

Once Gladiators arrived, we found a hole in the floor that gave access to the basement and proceeded down towards the lab. Minor contact was made. Eventually all of the dossiers were retrieved and we were clear to continue on.

It was here that we found the facility was largely compromised with a vast bug tunnel network already dug into it. The final file was taken and we rushed out due to being low on ammo and a big wave incoming.

Operation Donkey Punch: Day 7

Gladiators deployed from the FOB towards the main hive of the arachnids. Proceed in bugs seemed unusally passive. Ignoring us most of the time. We proceeded on, later discovering that the bugs were being influenced and aware of our presence. It was a trap.

While down there we encountered a weird bug with eight eyes and a "Vagina mouth" as was described. Upon discovering the trap, arachnid presence intensified and they had started the process of destroying eggs. The Gladiators continued into the tunnels and claimed some undamaged eggs. Four in total. Upon arrival back at the Hiroo Onoda, three were turned over to Military Intelligence, intact.

The bug mentioned was recorded by Leeson and Kerala.

Operation Donkey Punch: Day 5

The FOB came under heavy attack by accurate, indirect fire from arachnid plasma batteries. Due to the sheer number of plasma in the AO, Fleet were unable to get air support or Medevac to the FOB location. Due to lack of other NCOs at the time and the base being in poor condition, Gladiators contacted MOBCOMM and a plan was formed for the Gladiators to push out and take out the plasma in our sector of the AO.

Fleet eventually managed to find a pilot willing to fly the dropship to the location. We took the dropship along with one Eagle IFV to the area the Plasma were in. Once landed, Alpha formed a perimeter and Cortés used her talents to locate the first group of plasma, we got visual reference for location later as we saw plasma entering the sky.

Alpha proceeded slowly to the first location, working cohesively under the control of Lance Corporal Kerala. Assisted by the IFV. The Command element, made up of myself and the late arrival of Sergeant Keller kept an eye on the situation.

We found the first plasma up on a ridgeline, we engaged it with the IFV and eventually, the ATGMs and bullets from the vehicle took it down. With that success under our belt. We continued along this ridgeline, closing bug holes as we moved. Eventually we spotted a second set of plasma, there were tucked away behind a depression in the terrain, Roberts, who was driving the IFV was once more able to eliminate these plasma.

The final set of plasma could then be seen, far off to our north east. The decision was made to lob a ton over a mountain and airburst it. Roberts was the one to do this yet again, successfully taking out the plasma.

Contact was then made over LRR by a callsign, Saviour One Three. Informing us of a "Large bug" they were attempting to track and eliminate. Soon enough, we found out exactly what that bug was. A huge plasma, bigger than any bug I'd ever seen personally emerged from the ground.

Gladiators made the decision to pull the troopers back to safe distance so we could deploy a TON. Roberts deployed the TON, landing a hit but it did very little to the plasma, merely wounding it. With assistance from Saviour One Three they were able to GEONAV a TON to the location and this one managed to take it out thanks to Roberts weakening it.

At that point, MOBCOMM Informed the AO was clear and a dropship was deployed to take us back to the FOB
