RE: PPW Sandbox - Burning Citadel

In response to the OTS's corporate space fleet extending its reach further towards the territory of India, the ISN has responded by deploying a number of battle-groups to areas of strategic interest, one such being the Independent Station Arduant. The small battle-group, consisting of the ISNS Beas, ISNS Kora and headed by the light carrier ISNS Chennai, previously tasked with anti-piracy operations, are now facing a more substantial threat.

<<This is Captain Kailash Charan of the ISN 6th Provisional Battlegroup. OTS forces, you have breached occupied territory. Turn around now or you will be fired upon>>

The Corvette Beas and light frigate Kora set out on an interception course with the battlegroup accompanied by a section of three Tejas fighters, armed with anti-ship missiles.

"Arduant's defensive guns have us acquired."

Commodore Lavanchy, aboard ONS Battleship 771, Allecto, paces up and down the C&C calmly. A series of warnings ping off as projectiles are hurled at the flagship.

"Pathetic. Alpha wing, engage the defenses."

They peel off to an attack vector. The CIWS on the Allecto makes short work of the kinetic projectiles.

---

"This is Captain Armiger of the Frigate Kijma. We are going to make a sweep of the belt with Bravo wing."

"Roger that Kijma. Slaving drones to Bravo Wing now."

The Drone Carrier Pasobcha begins pouring out formations of drones.

"Give me an open channel."
"Aye Commodore!"

"This is Commodore Lavanchy of the OnArgent Naval Service. Citizens of Arduant, due to recent investment incentives, you are currently undergoing a seizure. If you do not surrender and evict yourselves immediately, you and all your possessions will be liquidated."


"We've been hailed, Commodore. It's the ISN."

Lavanchy listens to Charan's warning. He scowls.

"Captain Kailash. Do not interfere. This is not your business."

"Fuck, they started without us!" Vice Admiral Grop-Adam cursed loudly as the inter-ship optics fixated on the OTS fleet. He tuned to the Command channel.

"You skinners got the fuckin Diplo-Room ready?" He asked.

"Yes Admiral." Replied the smooth voice of Ambassador Yuck-Stella. "We are prepared to broadcast on your command."

"Right, I fuckin command it then, get'er done." Yuck-Stella sighed at the Vice Admiral's ever eloquent phrasing, and turned to her assistant, Fip-Stella.

"Thank God they leave the diplomatizing to us Stellas. Would you initialize the wide-band broadcast and penetrate all defensive radio layers?" Fip-Stella nodded, and interfaced with the radio system while Yuck-Stella dosed herself with another de-stressor hit, it wouldn't do to die of heart failure while broadcasting.

"We are online, Ambassador Yuck." Came Fip's voice, identical to Yuck's.

Yuck-Stella carefully massaged her kidneys out of the way of her mouth with a few precise muscle movements, and began to carefully speak into her implanted voice-box.

---

Meanwhile on the Arduant.

Screens the whole station over lit up with a rare image. A plush chair, of sorts, dominated the screen, plopped in the center cushion of the chair was a perfectly smooth, hairless blob of what looked to be human flesh, with several wires coming into and out of it.

"Greetings inhabitants of Station Arduant, employees of the OTS, and soldiers of the ISN. I am Ambassador Stella of Korglob Fleet Command, and this is Korglob Battlegroup Yeet. We are aware of ongoing hostilities in the area, and wish to minimize loss of life. We ask now that everyone power down their weapons, and agree to talks mediated by ourselves as a neutral third party. Should you refuse, we shall power up our own weapons, and do what we feel we must to minimize the loss of life. Please, do not make this harder than it has to be, for all of our sakes."

With the warning spoken, the screens power down, and the Korglob sensors probe to determine the militant's response.

The ISN's battlegroup pressed onwards. The larger frigate passed beneath the asteroid field, ready to emerge and strike while the OTS ships were occupied with the corvette and the fighter section. The ISNS Kora, the corvette, eager to do some damage, fired off a pair of anti-ship missiles from the launchers on its underside. It also detected anomalous readings from a nearby asteroid, and from its small internal hanger, a multipurpose shuttle flew out, preparing its short range scanners to analyse the object.

Meanwhile, the trio of Tejas were in clear enough view to take a good reading of the enemy ships.

<<Flight Lieutenant Gurung to the ISNS Chennai, we have a read on the enemy fleet, Two major combatants: A carrier and a gunship, Two support ships, Two sections of fighters and what looks like a troop transport, please advise>>

<<Lieutenant Gurung, direct fire towards the carrier if able, keep yourself out of harm's way though, we're preparing a second section of Tejas to deal with the fighters>>

In the hangar bay, the spacecraft techs get to work in fitting multi-purpose burst missiles to the hard-points of the three remaining Tejas, while the officers on the bridge moved to fully activate the battle-groups combat sensor fusion systems.

---

The sudden appearance and announcement of the Korglob forces caught the bridge of the Chennai by surprise, but the captain quickly recovered, dismissing the message with a wave of his hand. With the message gone, he instead shifted focus to the OTS fleet once more:

<<This is my business, mercenary. Your corporate masters have pushed too far, we are here to elicit justice and bring about your punishment.>>

[[Respond: Korglob Fleet Command]]

"Korglob Battle Fleet Yeet," a synthesized voice responds to the blob of flesh's communication. On their screens, a simple square diamond pulses with every word. "Extraction and retrieval of UL Technarchy citizens is high priority. This patrol fleet will not initiate hostilities unless fired upon. Please do not interfere with our operations."

[[Hail: Arduant Station]]

"Arduant Station. Requesting permission to dock for UL Technarchy ship LC-D2-0291842."

- Sir, I don't know. Looks like we mis-jumped our destination.
- Velikolepno! [Great!] Give me da status ov dat system and be quick wiz dat!
- I'm on it, sir. So far I could tell that our escorts is still with us, their telemetry is good so far. A gigantic space station is of an unknown origin... Oh! It seems that it fires on someone and their target isn't far from our course!
- Shields up, set eapons online! Alas we don't have shields. Order about weapons is still valid, execute now!
Weapons officer complies that order was received and understood.
- Sir, we have neighboors close by! Looks like they're also involved in the party with that station, their weapons are active and firing! I'm also getting results of several contacts far away.
- Looks like we arrived on the... party iz right word, Lieutenant. Contact our closest neighboors, ask if they need assistance and who are these other vessels. Prepare Wraith squadron Alpha to launch.

Fortunately, these cans are as warm as they are loud.
This makes them easy to find.


From a nearby asteroid propells a huge worm-like creature. It arcs down towards the ISNS Kora; It's beak-like jaws gaping in preparation.

"...Thank you auditor-general. This may swing things in our favour."

Lavanchy opens comms to all fleets in the sector.

"Attention all interlopers. Argent has placed the following kill warrants within this system, active now.

ISN Patrol Fleet; 7 Billion Credits.
Korglob Flotilla; 11 Billion Credits.
UL Technarchy; 15 Billion Credits.

Any may claim the bounties. Full payment will be wired on complete destruction of the warranted fleets."


He closes comms.

"That will teach these insolent fools. Report."

"Alpha wing has engaged the station defenses. The Kijima and Bravo Wing are engaging the ISN Fleet. They're reporting some sort of... local gigafauna."

"Very well. Stay out of the way. Give the ISN peasants something to think about. Patch me through to Kailash."


"Captain. Your notions of sovereignty and bravery are noble but unwise.
This is your last warning. You are outgunned. Retreat or be liquidated."


Two of the first drone wing pull off to intercept the antiship missiles. Two fighters from Bravo wing fire missiles at the Tejas in return.

"All units. This is Lavanchy. Arm railguns and train them on that asteroid field. Anything that comes out, obliterate it!"

- So they reagard us as mercenaries. How pathetic. But... wny no? Lieutenant, I need fire solution for incoming threats.
- I'm on it sir. Until it's ready, I ask permission for charging the Yamato.
- Permission granted. Until this combat is resoved, you don't need to ask it every time.
- Acknowledged, sir. The fire solution is ready. We have group of vessels identifying themselves as 'Korglob' on the intercept course, and another group of ships, designated as 'Technarchy' is docking with the station while rest of them is on patrol. Also, there's some weird energy readings from asteroid belt, I expect that they're 'ISN Patrol fleet'. Korglob and Technarchy ships are being closely monitored, their specs are on screen.
- All right, let's try to scratch that big boy skin. - Commodore Ivanov points at one of blips on the command screen.
- Sir, I finally got stellar coordinates of our current position!
- How much we're off our intended destination?
- Incrediby far, sir. I'm afraid we don't have enough fuel either to return back or jump where we have to be.
- Damnation! These warp fluctuations are pain in ass... as they always are. Okay, we have a battle to fight. Could we at least send a word to Fleet Command about this mess?
- Yes sir, I managed to get a hyperlink with relay beacon. Channel is quite unstable but it works.
- Good to hear. Send them report of current situation, but omit the mercenary part. Let's say we're being under attack without provocation. Oh, and ask them of reinforcements, maybe these eggheads could do something with that.
- Understood, sir. Activating the hyperlink now.
Wraith fighters are being launched, while Valkyries are breaking off the close formation.

RE: PPW Sandbox - Burning Citadel

[Image: 3kX2Szr.png]

The hearts of two unprepared sensor-operators onboard the KOR Huck failed as a line of explosions lit up the gunnery deck of the Arduant.

Grop-Adam's body inflated slightly as he sighed. "Motherfuckers... they shouldn't have fuckin' opened up on a full OTS battlegroup."

"Vice Admiral," Yuck-Stella's voice echoed in his ear-implant, "full sector broadband bounty callout from the OTS Fleet, numbers on your viewport now."

Light danced across the inside of the metal globes that surrounded Grop-Adam's internal eyes, beaming the information directly into his retinas. "Bastard shiteaters... standard OTS procedure, trying to call every gun for hire in the system down on their opponents. Well, we'll just see how that goes."

The Vice Admiral rolled his way to the pneumatic tube that would transport him to his battlecenter. "Sog-Tim, get me the full Battlegroup frequency on my voicebox!"

A pale, acne-ridden Korglob trying to keep up next to him simply shouted "Aye sir!" as he rolled into the tube that whisked him away to the radio-op center.

"Attention Korglob Battlegroup Yeet, the OTS have made their plainly hostile intentions known, they likely won't be stopping until they beat the Arduant into submission, which could cost hundreds of thousands of human lives, so we're gonna fuck'em up! Leave the Technarchy goons alone, they can grab their civvies, but keep a watch on those fuckin' Indians. Let's get this show on the fuckin' road people! Pop battle-level de-stressors, and all hands to battle stations!"

On his command, all support ship weaponry powered up, brimming with voltaic plasma, while his own ship's immense guns began their spin-up sequence. Per standard anti-OTS strategy, the point defense ship took the lead as the artillery ships covered the Huck's flanks, and the small fighter squad began to break off to cover the station.

<<Shit! Contact! Contact! Fire Keel Thrusters, weapons free!>>

The ISNS Kora pulled away from the worm at a steep angle, aided by its manoeuvring thrusters, and disgorged a second pair of anti-ship missiles directly at the head of the beast, alongside a hail of shells from the CIWS. The utility craft assigned to the Kora turned tail to the Chennai, lacking any weapons of its own to assist its mother-ship.

Further ahead, the previous two missiles collided with the drones, melting forward in twin spears of plasma and wasting them entirely.

<<Peetal squadron! Missile! Disperse!>>

The lieutenant's warning was followed by him pulling sharply upwards and deploying flares, manoeuvring through the asteroids with great speed. Behind him, an OTS missile smashed into an asteroid, having lost its target. As Gurung continued out of the field, he came into view of one of the OTS support ships in view and loosed both his anti ship missiles.

Peetal 2 and 3 banked in the opposite direction, trying to use one of the larger asteroids for cover. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough and Peetal 3 was struck, his craft going up in a ball of flame and debris.

Beneath Peetal 1, the Beas pulled upwards, angling itself to fire an accurate burst of fire into the support ship from its main gun. The commander of the frigate made it clear to his crew to avoid the cables stretching between the rocks before him.

---

Finally, from the ISNS Chennai, a second section of Tejas made ready to launch, consisting of Peetal 4, 5 and 6. Kaliash opened comms to respond once more to the OTS battlegroup.

<<The hubris of the OTS in plain view! We will strike down you money grubbing pirates with impunity, as we have done many times before!>>

TURN MUSAK




[Image: 5YtoxBl.png]

Chaos aboard the Kijima. Two missiles are vapourised by the CIWS. It attempts evasive maneuvers, but is struck by three high velocity shells.

Captain Armiger scrambles back onto his feet. "DAMAGE REPORT!"

"ONE PENETRATION, AFT COLUMN...!"
"SIR, RAILGUNS ARE STILL OPERATIONAL!"
"RETURN FIRE!"


The Kijima returns fire with a salvo of retribution toward the Beas.

---

"SCRATCH ONE!"
"Copy Bravo One. Finish 'em off. I've got a vector on the frigate, preparing to engage."
Bravo wing splits, the fighters pursue Peetal 1 and 2, taking potshots with their railguns. The torpedo bomber prepares a run for the Beas.

---

Alpha Squadron completes the attack on the defenses. The torpedo erupts, sending secondary explosions down the floors of the Arduant. Many perish.

---

A single bead of sweat runs down Commodore Lavanchy's forehead.

"Korglobs have us locked and are charging weapons. Technos are moving to intercept."
"Put me through to the new arrivals."
"Copy"
"This is Commodore Lavanchy of the OnArgent Naval Service, Battlegroup Aeneid. If you're here for the warrants, you are our allies. You efforts will be best spent on the spaceborn testicles, mercenaries. Lavanchy out."


Lavanchy is stoic in the face of overwhelming enemy numbers.

"Prepare the transport to board the Arduant. All ships, take cover around the station. They will be fools to open fire on us so close to their own citizens."

- Sir, there's a message for us fom our neighboors. Other fleets are designating them as OTS, so they're marked as such on tac-screen now. They're sent it on our own frequences, so it's just for us. Sending message to your personal datalink now, sir
- Thank you, Lieutenant. ... Oh, they seem to be impatient a little. How's Yamato charge is doing?
- Big one is ready, sir, we're performining some precise aiming... done, sir. Bam!
Whole Battlecruiser shakes a bit when massive plasma bolt engulfed and accelerated with magnetic fields is hurled towards alien fleet.
- Sir, I got response from Fleet Command! At first they didn't trust me, but then I sent them some tactical data...
- Son, do you remember what am I said about this mercenary story?
- Yes I do, sir. I sent them scans of our allies and adversaries as well as stellar coordinates. Not a word about comm transmissions, just as you said, sir. That was quite enough, though. They're sending some backup from a 'fronline operations base' as they said.
- Looks like our Black ops boys already exploring this hell hole for a while. These bastards always peeking their noses to such places... And who should cover their arses in that? Yeah, you got me. At last they're somewhat of help. I guess we shouldn't try to conserve every bit of fuel now. Full speed ahead!
Valkyries and Wraiths are accelerating towards the space station, leaving long tails of exausted gas behind them.

RE: PPW Sandbox - Burning Citadel

A wormhole opens in close proximity to the field of asteroids. The first ship to emerge is the battlecruiser USSF Saratoga. A vast array of sensors and electronic surveillance equipment lining the two main hull sections of the ship begin sizing up the Arduant and the other contacts surrounding the installation. The Space Force had been mocked since it's inception, "it's a waste of money," they said. "It was established by morons!" For hundreds of years, the only credit given to the US armed force's sixth branch was swatting away the occasional meteor on track to hit earth. That all changed when trillions and billions of tax dollars, spent on research and development into wormhole science finally paid off. After a few minor accidents like the destruction of Jupiter's moon Callisto, physicists working for the government had a prototype developed which would carry democracy and capitalism beyond the shining seas and amber waves of grain of America's borders. The Saratoga was one of the first ships commissioned with a jump drive. She had ample living space and cryogenic storage for colonists, and as the product of the defense sector every system was over-engineered and under constant repair and alteration. Accompanying her was the destroyer Lexington, a more dedicated warship but dwarfed by the Saratoga. A half dozen smaller craft screen the edge of the rift, protecting the vulnerable drive section of the cruiser.

Detecting familiar signatures, the USSF Admiral deGrasse Tyson III sends a coded transmission to the Indian fleet already engaged with the OTS and something alive in the belt of asteroids around the station.

"ISNS vessels, The Space Force is here to provide support. This star base is of vital strategic interest to the United States Systems. I have been authorized to engage groups hostile to the Arduant, ourselves, and our allies. Mark targets and we will engage them. Our ships are ready to provide aid to any damaged vessels and take wounded aboard."
