New Contest Teaser

New Contest Teaser -

Our good friends over at Auto Assault are teasing us with a new contest called Operation: Outpost. We will have to wait until Wednesday to find out the details, but for now, they are giving us the following intelligence from INC:

In response to a sharp increase in requests for intelligence on Ground Zero, INC authorized investment into the gathering of extensive data from the region. Just over a week ago, we deployed AirLift Wing 815 to the area for further investigation.

At 16:11:34 INC Central Command received distressing radio traffic between the AirLift Wing Commander and another pilot. The radio traffic, whilst partly inaudible, revealed some intriguing facts about the area. This is a transcript of that radio traffic:

WCDR Riley - [inaudible] This is Riley do you copy? I have no way of telling if you can hear me. Our frequency appears to have been scrambled. Do you copy?

[inaudible] [inaudible]

Riley -  We have been airborne for little over three hours, undertaking routine flight-path surveillance as ordered. I have a feeling there was a little more to this than the briefing let on.

[inaudible] [inaudible]

Riley - Four AirLifts have disappeared from radar and we are under heavy fire. Repeat, heavy fire. Can you tell what is happening on the ground below? Even with thermal imaging we can't tell much, but it looks like some sort of war is going on down there.

Pilot Lucano - [inaudible]

Riley - Take evasive action, climb to 20,000 feet. Our flight apparatus and navigation tools are becoming increasingly unstable. Do you copy? Do you have a fix on our location?

Lucano - [inaudible] That was close... [inaudible]

Riley - Keep watching for that ground fire.

Riley - Listen, if you can hear me… there appear to be settlements scattered around the Ground Zero area. Lots of them. [inaudible] looks to be compounded by heavy duty, defensive walling, with two central towers, each emitting some kind of electronegative light. You can see them from miles away.

Lucano - Trouble ahead!

Riley - Do you see that? It appears the fire is coming up from the settlements. Lucano Sir, we need to get out of here… incoming! [inaudible]

[radio silence]

In accordance with INC Code of Conduct (Article 43), we deployed Reconnaissance Recovery Wing 255 into the area last week. As of yet, nothing has been recovered: no crew, no fuselage, no cargo. We are receiving reports however confirming the information detailed in the Wing Commander's transmissions.

The settlements are interspersed around the center of Ground Zero, origination largely unknown, but they remain operational, fully powered – and totally unoccupied. The hostile fire was coming from four turret-mounted proximity cannons, now disarmed and reprogrammed. We have assumed that these structures are some sort of strategic containment Outposts.

Following extensive cartography in and around the highly contested Ground Zero perimeter, we have uncovered dozens of these Outposts. We conclude that it is only a matter of time before warring races become aware of their existence and make their bid.
