5/7/2211 Maly Vacay

Post by dragoner » Sat Nov 16, 2019 10:26 am

Tuesday, May 7th, Twenty-Two Eleven

The clock ticks down from the kidnappers threat, nothing appears, as it's no surprise, Zhenya having paid off the mercs to a healthy amount; with that threat gone, the security from Credit Reval leave. The ship repair shop on Stoketown are somewhat amazed the Czernobog has limped in with a damaged hull and engine, but they can fix it; the maneuver engine being the biggest deal for the tech level, hull, the most expensive, though they have a good spacedock they work with, the straighten out the frame. Then once everyone has purchased some goods they feel are necessary for the coming weeks ahead, it's off on the day trip to Pryp'yat.

Pryp'yat is a slowly drying out and dying world, it's nitrogen cycle running down which leaves the soil in poor condition. The shrinking oceans leave salt marshes behind, with the thin atmosphere have a slight taint of rotting vegetation. Maly is a cute little town on a thumb like peninsula in the southern part of the Basin area; the walls of the red ceramic roofed houses white-washed. Even a red and white striped lighthouse is perched on the north shore point. Damage to the town has been minimal, only on the main streets to the west and south have there been signs of battle.

Kavunnyk Peninsula, southern basin region. Maly is on the Maly River, named so for being of the Cherson River Delta, that flows out of the Goonetilleke Highlands. Yerkes Creek, named for a large creek flowing from the southern hills, is situated on Somerset Lake, west of the Burstyn hills, and east of the Jayawickrema wetlands.

Scale is one centimeter equals 745 km. Black line is the monorail.


The Computer info shows flying in, the Leshy is hailed on approach, and then tailed by a pair of fighters until it lands at the Maly field, situated around a lagoon south east of the Teixeira resort, a large colonnaded multi-storied building with a red tile roof. Taking a jitney style taxi there, one finds inside are various resort pleasures, tennis courts, a spa, casino; what one would expect from such an establishment. Czernobog, has reserved a group of suites on the upper northwest corner, overlooking both the ocean and the town. The resort is lightly staffed for the small number of guests, with robots filling in where needed.

What information on the terrain between Yerkes Creek and Maly can we gather from the sensors on Leshy as we fly in? Also, can we pick up any sigint from forces in the area, or detect local ground-defence radars painting us?

Edit:

Zhenya uses a hand computer connected to the Leshy's systems to monitor comms while Leon and Calson work at the cockpit consoles.

Calson sitting next to leon, who is obviously piloting, will keep a close eye on sensors for all the things Zhenya has mentioned. Also interested in vegetation and terrain within 50km of power plant. Any intel is good intel. "Just fly casual Leon"

There is a Radar map from the Leshy's sensor sweep of the area, general elevations, the Goonetilleke Highlands are for the most part between 1000-2000 meters in elevation (average summer temp is 25°C), a brush forest, and sites of where a lot of the fighting by the insurgency. About two years prior, there was a big push by the insurgents, which included fighting in the outskirts of Maly, the offensive did turn the central valley into an insurgent stronghold, and the Yerkes Creek Fusion Power Plant fell under their control at this time.

Maly has a military airbase sectioned off as the eastern half of the regular Maly landing area, as well as M-Drive spacecraft, there are larger spinners (aerodyne), with lower tech Helos and fixed wing light aircraft. The airbase has AA in the form of a missile battery and two laser batteries (treat as ship's turrets). The highlands have MANPADS https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Man-porta ... nse_system as the insurgents do field those weapons. The Leshy can try to outmaneuver or jam any incoming missiles, the Leshy is fast, then again, life is short.

Where the Power Plant is located, west of the Burstyn hills, and east of the Jayawickrema wetlands; the land is fairly flat, drained marsh with farms and paddies. Thing scrub forest is found in clumps around ponds, as well as following the banks of Yerkes Creek.

Questions from OoC:
Timing - when are the army planning to move? We don't want to have to hold against counter attacks, so we mustn't move too soon.

Two weeks is the vague timeline Nigel has given, though it will be in touch; it could be anytime in one of the weeks after the first two (during the night).

Do we have a contact in the RDV Army?

No. Nigel has informed them it has some mercs going to the Power Plant, to return it to control of the prior owners, and when the Army reaches there, they can take over. However, it reminds of the primary task of inserting the USB device in the plants control computer for a "Firmware Update".

Who controls Maly?

Maly is controlled by the Pryp'yat Provisional Government, it feels as if the RDV is looking to cut loose Pryp'yat at some point, and duplicating government agencies, or turning them over to the locals. Military forces are a combination of RDV Military, Pryp'yat Millitia, and Mercenaries.

Who controls the airspace between there and Yerkes Creek? ( Perhaps we can get permission to fly ).

Orbital and High Altitude by the RDV Military, local airspace by various forces, though insurgents have contested this with ground fire, drones, and even fighters. Nigel has bribed the passage through, though it hasn't detailed the plans, any changes should be filed with Nigel, to make sure that the locals can be dealt with.

Overall, from what we see, what is the state of the military? Have they taken a beating? Are facilities and units in good or bad shape?

Leon nods, "yea a little break will be good". He is keeping a eye over the console making sure all is order. He looks over to Zhenya, " we should get drunk and salute old friends, then get ready for the next step"

It's worn, morale seems off, though equipment wise, they are flush.

Things do seem ok, both Zhenya and Leon should roll 2d6 for Liaison and Pilot.

The Hotel has a bar and restaurant areas, going from casual to formal. Plus there are a lot of other areas for recreation in Maly, the weather is pleasant, warm at 35°C daytime, and a drop of 10 degrees at night. Dress is short, sarongs, and sandals; street life is lively with area along the beach, called the strand, a lot of street food, and market stalls.
