Cell:MFS Impetuous/1st Maquis Light Horse/Operation: Eagle Trident II
OPERATION: Eagle Trident II
"Stranger, announce to the Spartans that here We lie, having fulfilled their orders."
Originally planned for April 15, 16 and 17, 2011 and rescheduled for April 29, 30 and May 1st 2011 the crew of the M.F.S. Impetuous and the M.F.S. Pathfinder got together for a 3 day gaming event using Battletechrules for a re-enactment of the Battle of Thermopylae.
The Game Manager was once again CMDSGTMAJ Bill Absher
In this scenario, our 300 Spartans were the Marines of the 1st Maquis Light Horse and the 514th Marine Assault Group.
We pit our MarDets against several of the Cardassian Unions toughest regiments for this wargame.
- 1st Cardassian Guards RCT
- 8th Cardassian Guards RCT
- 19th Sword of Cardassia RCT
- 9th Star of Cardassia RCT
- 22nd Sword of Cardassia RCT
To keep things to scale we used part of the listed units in the battle, citing that the full RCT’s couldn’t be pulled from their positions for this exercise.
This breaks down to:
5 Mekk regiments (540 Mekk)
5 Armor regiments (864 tanks)
18 Infantry regiments (15552 soldiers)
M.I.L.E.S. Gearwas used to tally hits, "dead" and "wounded" were beamed off the playing field.
