Sujet : New assignments.

Ile-de-France


Montlaville appears onscreen, her uniform gleaming with practiced flawlessness. Her face shows tiny signs of satisfaction : a slight grin and unfrowning eyebrows. Which, for those versed in Chanteloup body language, is a rare case of expressive detonation which may as well be interpreted as "I AM ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED ABOUT EVERYTHING".

Bonjour,

Gentlemen, madame, I've been hearing from you in various ways since yesterday's report. Nothing incriminating... Yet... But clear signs that you felt like you had potential that you'd like to put to good use. Potential and initiative brings victory. I like victory. Therefore, here are your assignements.

She pauses, and lights a Gauloise cigarette.

Lieutenant de Vaisseau Eloi Leclerc,

Your rise through the ranks has been significant. To you, certainly, but to me as well. I don't have a habit of over-promoting people under my command : it makes them either complacent or utterly panicked. In both cases, they make mistakes, and, worst of all, they feel like they need to express their gratitude to me. That's why it does not happen.
It happened with you. I suspect you're a little shaken : you'd be fooling yourself if you weren't. You've entered the world of adults, and MRG adulthood is a terrifying thing that will put you to the test. So cheer up ! Adversity means you'll get better, and I need you to get better. In fact, I need everyone to get better. Getting better at war is a requirement to winning them : that's a constant. In light of this, and to soothe your undoubtedly racing mind, I've thought of something for you to do.

The reports about your flying skills are certainly impressive. With little prior training and in the short time you've served my fleet, you've demonstrated unusual competence in fighter combat and good interpersonal dispositions. I hereby order you to take charge of a new training regimen for our pilots : the Programme d'Instruction et d'Entraînement au Pilotage, or PIEP. Your duties are simple : come up with something to make my pilots better at being pilots. You have no budget limit and the entire infrastructure of the Marine is yours. You will have full power over those who volunteer to make use of the programme, and should you feel some of the men and women NEED the training and are lacking the drive to sign up, let me know and I'll arrange for them to find the motivation. I don't care what it takes : do what you can to bring out the best in our pilots and keep them in top shape for whatever comes next.

It's not an easy task, and is traditionally reserved to the As des As office. That being vacant at present, there will be no one to get in your way, as befits the accomplishment of such an important assignment. You will report only to me. I trust you on this, Capitaine : you've not ranked up so fast to piss around with your new golden rectangles. Show me I was right and Lieutenant de Vaisseau won't be the end of it for you.
If you've got questions about the logistics side of things, consult with Commandant L'Herminier, if you please. Good luck in your efforts.

Enseignes de Vaisseau Félix Lacroix and Guy Josselyn,

Lieutenants,

It has come to my attention that you've been displeased at not seeing your names on the tableau d'avancement lately. I can understand staying at the rank of Enseigne can be underwhelming when you think you've much to offer to the Marine. What I CANNOT understand, however, is two young and somewhat promising junior officers doing VERY LITTLE OF SIGNIFICANCE and expecting to be lauded for it. I normally would have let this slide with only moderate amounts of scorn, but it just so happens that I believe you could be up to some good if you only put some effort in it. Since you've failed to demonstrate the required initiative, I've decided to give you the chance to illustrate yourselves with a series of missions. Listen well.

Gallia needs eyes and ears. The GRI does a good job of listening everywhere we need them to, but they're not always well disposed to share what they find. I can't blame them : inter-service rivalry and budget-hunting is a constant of life, especially in war. Still, I need people to gather information on sensitive issues for the good of the MRG, and to act as my voice where I can't or at least shouldn't be heard. That's what you're going to do, in tandem. I'm partnering you to fulfill the duties of the Messenger office for the duration of this campaign. The endgame for you is to investigate the threat that CA Pierre Vincent Dupetit-Thouars du plateau des Coucous mentioned in his latest report. Not bad, huh ? You will touch what is perhaps the greatest mystery of our history with the tip of your fingers... And perhaps help us find a way to weaponise it for the Roi. But as I said, this will be the endgame. Speak of it to no one.

First, you will be assigned a series of missions, each new one handed following successful completion of the previous. Think of it as a campaign with increasing difficulty that will allow me to check your progress and ensure you're both ready for the big plan. Do well, and I'll see you rewarded and issued the promotions you so ardently desire.

These tasks will be dangerous and delicate, increasingly so. They will require finesse, stealth, cunning, diplomacy and resourcefulness. Which is why I'm adding the aspirant Sabine de Bordeleaux to your team. She's experienced in dealing with foreign groups and difficult situations and will be of great help to you in the coming missions. Make good use of her skills both in support capacity and directly on the field. Cooperation will be of the essence to see this campaign through, and I intend for the three of you to learn to work together as a cohesive unit. Cohesion wins wars.

Now that the introduction is set, here is your first assignment : opération Bernard-l'hermite.
I want a full report on the Natio Octavarium. They're a band of renegades in fealty to the Crayterian rogue state for some reason, and a new player in the region.
I want to know who they are, what they want, what they are up to, and what threat they pose to us and our operations, particularly in the Tau Highway (the Au-Tau-Route !).
Any extra information past that will be a bonus and put to good use by our analysts.

To accomplish this, you have carte blanche. But I don't want a desk-job report : you will lead an investigation on the field. Get out there, locate their bases, find their agents, their accomplices, their enemies. Ask around, hell, even talk to them if it comes to that. Test their combat capabilities if the opportunity arises, too. The idea here is to know who we are dealing with and what level of threat we should expect from them.

I expect a well put-together report. Create a good template that you can use for your next missions, to save your time. And mine.
Opération Bernard-l'hermite is a go. Do not fail me.


Surprisingly, she gets up from her seat and goes to shut down the communication by herself, after making three curt steps towards it, her expression unflinching.

Bonjour Amiral,
This is quite the assignment to be given so shortly after being promoted, but it is indeed one I'll take on with pride. I already have a few ideas regarding the programme, and if nothing else I can hopefully help to lessen the casualties being dealt to our fighter wings. The Libertonians and Bretonians admittedly have some capable pilots, but it is something we can and shall overcome. I am more than willing to help facilitate this by being the lead organizer of PIEP.
I will be sure to keep High Command and you posted of further updates as I finalize the specifics of the programme.

Description de la/des situation/-s


Situation un:

I just recieved the report of one of my Lieutenants, that the convoy with the Scientific Data from the Operation 'Porte Tournante' has finished its assignment. The Data from the undefined hostile forces has been delivered to Fort Lune in order to be examined. As we assess these are blueprints for weapons. The brave men from the station Fort Lune will use those blueprints in order to construct weapons, improved with our own technology. For now those will be only for testing purposes. If they prove useful enough to us we will use them on our warships.

Marine Royale Gauloise Mission De-Briefing

[Image: PnPOy9K.png]

To L'Amiral I.M. de Chanteloup,

I am writing to report of the success of our convoy operation out of Occupied Leeds. Thanks to our efforts at organizing Task Force Dunkerque, approximately 2.8 thousand casualties have been rotated away from Planet Leeds, and 4 fresh battalions of Royal Marines have been redeployed to the front lines from Gallic space. We consider this a great accomplishment in that it confirms our ability to sustain the Gallic War Machine as the conflicts with Liberty and Bretonnia continue.

With the situation at the front lines quickly de-escalating, I am of the opinion that convoy (and anti-convoy) operations will continue to play increasingly important roles. Our fleets at the front can be resupplied more timely, and we can rotate Royal Army elements from planetary conflicts periodically so as to fully maximize our combat efficiency both on the ground and in space. I will continue to monitor the situation at the front lines with Bretonnia, and see to it that our supply lines are protected from B.A.F. raiders and saboteurs across this theatre. I feel we are also ready to begin our initial planning for the proposed 5G Commerce Raiding Units, and take the fight to our enemies.

Lastly, I'd also like to mention and especially thank the escorts of Task Force Dunkerque, whose vigilance and professionalism saw the mission through. Through careful fleet management, the CO's of the convoy were able to coordinate and successfully lead the train throughout the operation.

We did not run into any hostile vessels this time admiral, but rest assured the enemy will never find a Gallic convoy wanting.

Sincerely Yours,

Description de la situation


Situation un:

I undocked from the Battleship Castres in New London to conduct a hit-and-run raid on Bretonian war material at Southampton Shipyard. The raid itself was successful, destroying tons of vital materials and equipment for maintaining the enemy war machine. On my way back to the Castres, however, I was intercepted by a BAF fighter flown by a Lieutenant Martin Beck. The fighter itself was a Libertonian-made BDR-804 Guardian-class Very Heavy Fighter. A short engagement ensued, but despite my best efforts, my fighter was shot out from under me. I was picked up by a patrol from the Castres before I could be captured by the enemy.

Description de la situation


Situation un:

Good day monsieurs, today I was asked to reinforce the patrols in Tau-23, that because there was some ships of unknown procedence there, so after we arrived and proceeded to link with the local patrols we encountered some "AI" ships, looks like they are autonomuos robots, I will leave the rest of that matter to the Officier responsable to manage the contact.

After that, we stopped two attacks from the Crayter terrorists, looks like they are becoming more desperate because in the first attack some type of dreadnought shot us alone, only to cloack and escape, then, in their second try, their flagship attacked us alone, only when he was in the verge of beign destroyed is that his reinforcements arrived, lucky for us the Olympia and the Saturnius where destroyed. The problem is that my bomber was heavily damaged in the battle and I couldnt help with the fighters, only my training and some luck helped me to crash dock in the Battleship Guillestre.


I can't add pictures of the patrol and battle because like most systems on my bomber the gun camera was destroyed.

Catégorie: Rapport officiel de l'officier



Mesdames et Messieurs, Officiers Distingués de la Marine Royale Gauloise,

I, Madeline Sabine IV of the Bordeleaux Household of Lyonnnais, Coureur of the Marine Royale Gauloise and Commander of the RNS L'Esperance (Perilous-Class GRN Corvette), have done service.

During a routine patrol of the Leeds system, my crew and I stumbled upon a BIS Operative flying what appeared to be a bomber. It was clear very early on that there would be little to discuss, and so hostilities were immediately opened as the Bretonnian cur tapped heavily into his torpedoes and his mines. I am happy to report however, that SUPREME GALLIC TECHNOLOGY and INTERAL GALLIC POWER enabled us to hold the line, and evade most incoming projectiles. The skirmish lasted for a total of approximately 17 minutes, seeing a drawn-out exchange of torpedoes, energy weapons fire, mines and silencer missiles atop the East Leeds Smog Cloud, after which the bomber cloaked, and the L'Esperance returned to Leeds to restock. Ultimately the L'Esperance failed to verify the bomber's destruction, but the point was made - LEEDS is GALLIC.

My crew and I shall remain stationed at Leeds until further notice, mainly while we resupply our vessel and continue our system sweeps to guard against future Bretonnian incursions into Gallic space. I am somewhat pleased to report at this point the slow but consistent improvement of my crew, and recommend particularly for further training my gunnery sergeants, particularly at working the 'Silencer' missiles my ship equips for dealing with lighter craft. I would also like to report a previous engagement in which my crew and I arrived to support other MRG assets already on the scene, with what appeared to be a Counsillard cruiser in the Tau-23 system. Battle logs show that the killing blow was delivered with our main forward gun.

At this point however I must request for lighter fighter support, or an assault transport to accompany the L'Esperance. Squaring off with fighters and bombers is all well and good, but my subordinates have expressed no less than once that they are itching to begin raiding our lower class enemies' supply lines as a 5G-listed corvette. As ultimately I am at your disposal, it makes little difference to me as to whether Commandement Centrale prefers that I continue my patrols of the newly acquired systems, or if I am to continue my work as a 5G raider. I only ask for clarification, and the necessary fighter escort, an accompanying Taureau or even another gunboat so as to fully maximize the Perilous' combat capabilities. Once this has been sorted out, we will return to Lyonnais for a brief refit and rotation of crew, and can be deployed again to the front lines, or behind them, within 2-3 days.

In the meantime, the L'Esperance's watchful guard, my vigilance and my crew's high spirits, the war continues.

Mesdames et Messieurs, Officiers Distingués de la Marine Royale Gauloise,

I, Madeline Sabine IV of the Bordeleaux Household of Lyonnnais, Coureur of the Marine Royale Gauloise and Commander of the RNS L'Esperance (Perilous-Class GRN Corvette), have done service.

The L'Esperance continued its routine patrols today. From data collected from our earlier encounter with the Bretonnian bomber, we decided to requisition fighter escort this time - in the form of a young cadet by the name of Mia Antoinette, aboard her "Caracal" light fighter. Our route began from our rendezvous in the Tau-23 system, and after an initial briefing on today's patrol and the inherent risks therein, we departed for Tau-31 and the Leeds systems immediately. Initial sensor scans of the area showed no unauthorized vessels in the area, and so we continued our patrol to the Magellan System, and then on to Dublin, where we conducted more local system scans, lest any BMM, BFF or other miners were operating with impunity in a system claimed by Gallia, or if there were any more blockade runners attempting to use Dublin as a staging ground for the lucrative gold ore routes that take them from Bretonnian-held space to Gallia where their cargo is sold. We returned to Leeds shortly thereafter, and backtracked further to the safer shores of Tau-23 where both the Rose Noir and the L'Esperance remain docked and are undergoing maintenance checks.

Henceforth I strongly recommend sending our patrols out in complements rather than singular vessels. I must also commend the cadet on her professional conduct, and while we encountered no Bretonnian or Libertonian contacts, I am confident she will do fine and perform satisfactorily. I would like to request that she be transferred to Bordeleaux Shipyard on Lyon in my jurisdiction, as I refuse to see good talent waste away in the backwaters of Tau-23.


That concludes this patrol's report. I intend for my corps to begin Transport Logistics operations in the coming weeks. I will remain in touch.

Bordeleaux, out.

Mesdames et Messieurs, Officiers Distingués de la Marine Royale Gauloise,

I, Madeline Sabine IV of the Bordeleaux Household of Lyonnnais, Coureur of the Marine Royale Gauloise and Commander of the RNS L'Esperance (Perilous-Class GRN Corvette), have done service in the name of His Majesty, the Kingdom and the Royal Navy.

During our routine patrol for the day, we chanced upon a Roc Bomber flying a Bretonnian SIS ID. After negotions quickly broke down (I must say, I am rather unimpressed by the crude savagery of these Bretonnians. They fail to even humor me or my NCO's, which irritates me even more), we immediately powered up weapons and engaged. It was a rather uneventful skirmish, as throughout the ordeal the L'Esperance's shields held as we kept lancing the poor thing with silencer missiles and blanketing fire from our turrets. The brief encounter lasted approximately 5 minutes according to my bridge officers' reports, and abruptly ended after the SIS agent broke off.


Patrols in the system continue.
