Operation Rolling Thunder Part 1

Postby BrickArmed » Sun Jun 15, 2014 6:59 pm

Operation: Rolling Thunder was a mass offensive against the DSMs, the Resistance, the Cult of the Psychic FIRETRUCK, and The Spacefish Cult. Most of the attacks were launched from Airendale and Elsanna, while the western offensive were launched by Bureaucratic Sparta and Bostonia. The worst battle, however, was at Puppyland VII, where all 5 factions had a fight. The SSDF 1051st Support Division, from Bureaucratic Sparta, the 119th Armored Division from Bostonia, the 147th and 238th Urban Combat Divisions from Elsanna, and the 439th Desert Combat Division from Airendale. They are still slugging it out. This is their story.

Prologue
In orbit around Puppyland 7, a SSDF invasion fleet comes out of warp.

One of the Resistance ships breaks off to engage the SSDF fleet.

As the ship approaches the SSDF fleet, it launches a fighter.

To counter this, the Resounding Star launches 2 Condor class fighters.

The Resistance ship takes out one of the fighters, and fires on one of the escorts with cannons and a torpedo.

The torpedo does the escort in, and in retaliation, the Resounding Star opens fire on the Resistance ship.

The torpedo shot down the Resistance ship...

The Armies

The SSDF
The SSDF, or Southern Systems Defense Force, is the military force of the United Southern Systems of the Far Arm. They are at war with the Deadly Spacemen, Resistance, Cult of the Psychic Fire Truck, and the Cult of Spacefish. The SSDF sent a small detachment from the 4 combat groups, thinking it was an unimportant planet that might be fun to have a base on like Bonn-o-Tron. Turns out, all 5 factions had the same idea...

The Resistance + The Deadly Spacemen
The Deadly Spacemen and The Resistance have an interesting combination; the Deadly Spacemen keep the Resistance around to get them beer and pizza. When the local pizza shop goes bankrupt due to corruption, the resistance forces here will probably die.

The Cult of the Psychic Fire Truck and the Cult of Spacefish
The Cult of the Psychic Fire Truck is a cult of Space FireMen that like burning stuff. The Cult of Spacefish is a more extreme subcult of the Cult of the Psychic Firetruck, as well as the Cult of the Psychic Fire Truck's space force. They worship a god called Spacefish, who gets a 20-sided die and lots of fudge. A fudgeload of fudge.
