Exclamation Episode 6

Is scheduled @ Friday the 13th of August and the upcoming weekend....Maybe we shall start thirsday the 12th.? hehe
Well my lucky number is 13 so any of the dates are good.

THE SITUATION.

After a hefty escape from the Mental institution in Texas in last episode, all of the characters are slightly wounded physically and severly wounded mentally some more than others, you know who I'm talking about...MAO. But you all managed to leave the US with loads of intel and equipment. The boat which was aranged by a team-effort of Mao's next in command and the south-american smuggler in the group.

For the moment you have no new mission as you travel southbound out of US waters.

Pix of the boat will be posted soon.

-General out.

Well this is the ship that Mao's nex in command bought from a museum, promising to give it a new home as a museum in Tokyo.

Crew is a mixture of Japanese loyal to Mao.
And some Loyal to (Peter) the south-american smuggler.

Just as u know it's built in the 40s and it smells and sounds just like that

Ship ohoy.

Default Communicatons - new job leads

Can we safely communicate from the ship using onboard equipment /Mao phones or will this leave a trace for the FBI /NSA?

If we can - can I start work on getting a new contract or getting further leads on the whereabouts of a certain Russian crime kingpin ?( Any major operation of his that we can hurt is also of interest).

Since we are so well armed I look to the corporate sector : any major corporation that have a mining license in the jungles of south America but have pesky left wing narco guerillas that slow down the money making ? We can clear the area of undesirables ! For a small fee / stake in the minig operation

Any billionaire heirs gone missing ?

Any civil wars going on that needs escalation ?

Anyone have a research station that have reported ...anomalies ?

Any corrupt Mexican Federalpolice that want a certain top level drug cartel meeting rudely interrupted ?

Any billionaire heirs gone missing ? - POSSIBLE MISSION(s) - france,argentina
Any civil wars going on that needs escalation ? - Possible Missions, Kongo,sierra Leone,Thailand,Burma,etc etc

Anyone have a research station that have reported ...anomalies ? - Northern Russian waters,north of japan, south of iran,india

Any corrupt Mexican Federalpolice that want a certain top level drug cartel meeting rudely interrupted ?
- ALLWAYS, but is rather public mission

Apart from that you have possibilities in th Canadian forrests, kaukasus,egypt,syria,iraq,germany.italia,france,UK

I believe half of the crew is loyal to me, and should be good ol' boys, from my trafficking days. I know them all personally, and if I don't, we don't need to have them onboard.

Heading south from Texas, we should be able to hack onto Intelsat-9. Maybe disguise our communications as live broadcast opera (Faust, of course). Or we could rent a cheap uplink from a semi-rogue Brazillian sat-com reseller. As long as we use 2056-bit Blowfish encryption, we should be good.

I'll get onto checking the choppers, and arming them if at all possible. Maybe we can stop by my crib and pick up some gear.

The Mi-8 is a proper workhorse, and could probably be fitted with anything we can think of, like the Oerlikon 20mm

Good Job .

Well - since our group has sorted it self out I try to go deep - sending a reinforced line down hundreds of feet with a bloody mesh bag of fish and meat on the massive and hand-sharpened hook.

I want something big . ( Knowing the Gods of this world to be ..unpredictable I keep a few handgrenades and an AK with grenade launcher close.)

Default the Workhorse

I need a clarification.
There were only built 32 H-21A choppers for the USAF, hardly any of them built in 1952, all intended for a SAR role. Some of them were later upgraded.
There were built 163 H-21B in the same period, and later in 1962 after being redesignated CH-21C 334 more were built for U.S. forces. 32 built under licence by Weser Flugzeugbau for the West German Army. 98 built for the French Air Force and French Army Aviation.

My question is: could it be that we misinterpreted the model and make of the chopper, and that what we have sitting aboard our proud ship is really a H-21B or CH-21C? I could easily see this happen if it in fact is an upgraded version of the orginal 32 H-21A, and it is not unplausible that an untrained eye (unlike my own) could miss telltale signs of the later models.

Arrow TIME

As time is running out until our next episode/session/massacre I'd prefer you please make up you mind of what heading or plan you'd want to choose.

Default plan

sponsored by Big Oil or whatever



Civil war missions - what are the missions ? How much does it pay ?
Iranian research facility - what does it pay ?

If these are original helis, I think we can just drop them in the harbour. Material wear will have dealt death blows to these girls long time ago. There will be no end to the work to have them in operable state. Much easier to purchase a used, modern chopper that fits our needs. A 60 year old 1100hp single engine chopper = garbage. The strain on the engine was enormous, especially in the earliest models (H-21a), some would say it was under-powered, and that's why it was upgraded before it was put into proper production.
Upgrading these choppers is just plain dumb.

I think this would be a swell choice, even though the pay is not out of this world, I guess pay is matched by perceived danger?

Most people pay to base jump - I am in it for the ride.

Plus this is a big op with the possibility to recruit a company of mercs and try them out in combat operations for the big one - coup d`etat at 32 mill dollars in Corruptistan or whereever

The Mi-18 is equipped with state of the art equipment a la http://nightflightconcepts.com/

The workhorse is however best use as a workhorse, but after recent inspection it appears newly renovated and refurbished.

Weapon Systems for the Mil18 should be ordered ASAP.
The workhorse has mounts for MGs/HMGs

More details if asked for.
