The NSMC 309th “Ruthless Riders” stars one of many ground divisions of the Democratic Imperium of Nepleslia, as they're assigned operations within and out of Nepleslian space. As a part of the 3rd Assault Fleet "Wolf Pack", the 309th were once an elite fighting force until many of its command structure was broken down and sent across many other divisions. One of its many platoons has been reassembled in the efforts to preserve the 309th, resulting in the group being composed of veterans from various transfers as well as new recruits. This platoon, led by a long-time member of the 309th, is the focus of the plot as they fight to restore their Division, defend Nepleslia, and accrue war trophies from its enemies!
|Juno Rickett||Legix||The Lieutenant and Tank Commander leading the 309th's platoon, one of the few members left after the initial break-up and reorganization of the division. He has a terrible hat.||Yes|
|Ella Duville||SirSPT||The tank crew's driver and the sole Private within the machine. A very obsessive Hanako fan to the point of inducing fear.||Yes|
|Joe "Radar" Larson||Whitehart||A batty Nepleslian Private First Class who handles loading the tank and operating the radio's precise controls. While the crew can't hear things going on outside the tank, you can be sure he just might have a chance to hear over that powerful war-engine.||No|
|timothy_mcclosky||HAMnJAM||A Corporal and new transfer to the 309th. The gunner for the platoon's tank, until it blows up, or until he gets knocked out while operating it..||No|
|Fredrica "Fitz" Wallace||Syaoran||A Corporal transferred from the 1st Expeditionary Mechanized Force, Fitz acts as a second gunner and mostly cybernetic gun enthusiast! Don't leave her alone with the tank shells.||No|
|Fang-Yin Zhou||Primitive Polygon||Spooky beefcake she-tyrant Private. Footslogging infantry and trained Demolitions Expert. Nice chest, but might be a witch.||Yes|
|Minnie Valentine||Charmaylarg||A Nepleslian woman raised in a pretty standard environment, now thrown into the fire as a Private to serve in the role of Medic for the infantry squad, tank crew, and as a Medical Doctor when required among civilians.||Yes|
|Autumn Wilde||Kim||A Nepleslian veteran, who had been killed in the past before getting brought back and reassigned to instructor and military liason for New Bernese. The Sergeant has been transferred back into active duty with the planet in a war state, reassigned to the 309th as a Demolitions Expert alongside Fang.||Yes|
|Chiaki Kokuten||Bilgecrank||Originally a rather generic medic, Kokuten is a Nepleslian and now a Second Lieutenant assigned to Juno. A doctor while not on the battlefield, his experience makes him the second-in-command and the leader of the infantry.||Yes|
|Commander||Judith Branthese||Caster||Flight Leader||Krisslanza||Aquila 11)|
|Lieutenant||Mochizuki Sayoko||Banshee||Reconnaissance/Counter-Intelligence (IPG)||paladinrpg||Aquila 2|
|Lieutenant||Miranda Bannings||Spirit||Bombadier||Grey Library||Aquila 3|
|Lieutenant||Edward Donato||Virus||Electronic Warfare||Whitehart||Aquila 4|
This includes NPCs and anyone who might just appear in either.
|General Apollodorus Wiegand||Legix||The current commanding General of the entire 309th. While he's grown old enough to not head into the field as often, this man handles the major orders over the platoon, working in coordination with the fleet to carry out their various field operations.||No|
|Ngozi Abraham||Legix||Elected Governor of New Bernese, Ngozi is a woman who's profoundly not corrupt in the grand scheme of most Nepleslian politicians. At the same time, she doesn't stop the blatant corporate and thug take-over that's been plaguing the planet and the corruption of the planet's garrison. She's become a laughing-stock among most Nepleslians as the sort of politician only a Yamataian would trust.||No|
|Fergus Mallan||Cordinarr||One of the NSMC Infantry PFCs escorting the platoon's tank, and the squad cook. Probably cooking tank-bacon.||Yes|
|Slon Kuznyetski||DJ P4NTSL3SS||A Kuznyetski Private with a fancy for guns and saving people's lives with medical gear. Just don't let him near women. He's terrible at that whole “talk to women” thing.||No|
|Jaron Nasif||Livgardist||A normal Nepleslian Private, assigned to the group to perform infantry marksmanship. Most likely to chew on his gun in his sleep.||Yes|
We are looking for additional fighter pilots!

#002.5: Mission 2.5: AGL Bullies
The 309th, on assignment with the 3rd Assault Fleet "Wolf Pack", are being properly organized and brought about into an operational capacity. One platoon of them, under assignment and the command of Juno Rickett, are picked and formed first in the initial efforts to restore the division to its original strength. This, of course, all starts with their first field of operation within the Nepleslian-controlled world known as New Bernese…
In the final weeks of YE 38, the group arrives to a bandit siege on Fort Puckett within the capitol of New Bernese, the mega-city of Puckitall. They're deployed from the NAM-S1-01a Hray-Class Stealth Gunship that transported them with the detachment of its cargo module, quickly riding to help the local defenders with their single tank and small group of infantry, while their support staff rush to aid in medical relief for the planetary militia. The resulting battle, suffice to say, is one of utter carnage. The many members of the 309th's infantry push forward to support the militia, under extensive fire, while the tank pushes and begins obliterating the enemy's strongpoints. Multiple members of the militia are slain in the resulting push, but ultimately the elite militia squad does its job and works alongside the infantry to reach a bunker holding critical supplies. Within, however, holds the key to stopping the pirate's elite ace sniper: an Aggressor once owned by the elite 309th itself. After a well-executed kill of the pirate power-armor soldier, the tank and the troops rally the militia into a powerful counter-attack that breaks the siege at last.
About a month later into the first few weeks of YE 39, the 309th have recovered and the fort has survived. A request for more soldiers allows the platoon to prepare for a new operation at long last, all starting with an important meeting with the Governess herself, Ngozi Abraham. She brought out a Nepleslian soldier who had previously been stationed and part of the military advisement of the planet, long-time veteran Autumn Wilde. Wilde had been transferred back into active duty alongside the 309th, allowing the briefing of the next phase of the war effort to be emboldened. The group was set to move out to the defensive wall made on the planet by the mega-corporations, where they would make a new FOB and prepare to ride into the Fatneck-controlled plains. The extra-addition of members Fredrica "Fitz" Wallace and Joe "Radar" Larson allowed the platoon to move out at nearly full strength for its combat squad, but along the way they bore witness to the arrival of additional 3rd Assault Fleet "Wolf Pack" assets alongside the early arrival of General Appolodorus himself with the newly issued Na-S3-1a Jackdaw-Class Heavy Corvette for the fleet. From the ground, they witnessed the four machines fire upon the fields and further distant mountains, the deafening booms reaching them despite how far they were. One of the craft, however, ended its barrage early to intercept the middle of their venture due to space, releasing additional personnel of the 309th that would both go to the wall and return to the Fort to take up the defense.
Among them, however, was the arrival of Chiaki Kokuten, the newest second-in-command of the 309th who would oversee the infantry and further allow the expanding size of the platoon to properly operate. While he joined the squad and everyone moved to briefly break, Juno would board the ship to further discuss the plans of the assault and figure out the reason for the arrival of additional troops. After a period of two weeks of intense planning and shenanigans from the others within one of the local slum-towns of New Bernese, they would all regroup at the wall amid a collection of vehicles that had been ferried in as well. In particular, the arrival of a proper transport for the Infantry that would be commanded by timothy_mcclosky when Kokuten wasn't aboard. This vehicle, a Jackelope APC, would be joining them as they finally prepared to push out and show the pirates what Nepleslia could do on the attack.
In space, however, assets from the 1st Assault Fleet had arrived, bearing the renowned Aquila Flight. With the 3rd Fleet preparing to organize a proper invasion of ground forces, it had fallen upon elements of the 1st Fleet to handle the more dominant air-control, utilizing Jackdaws as impromptu strike carriers to bring the extra precision and speed they could bring over the eight Jackdaw currently at the planet. While it was unorthodox, they were opened up to a controlled space with the prospect of facing a mixed threat to try and contain their foes and prevent further spread through the system. If they would be successful, however, was still up to debate. Their fights would hinge on a combined effort, after all, with the forces below to fully cripple their opponents.

As a division, the 309th is currently vastly under-strength. It was formed roughly in YE 29, fielded for battle in YE 31 during the Second Mishhuvurthyar War. An armored infantry division, the 309th has been under a single command, the command of apollodorus_wiegand. The original logo for the Division was simply the NSMC star, but was replaced with a tribute to the General's pet snake Whooper.
Over the various campaigns before assignment with the 3rd Fleet, the group was commonly deployed as a frontline asset, used in hammering through ground formations with armor-supported infantry pushes. This old tactic had been fruitful in providing them a nickname in YE 31, where they broke a Mishhu hold-out and chased them down until there was none left on the entire planet.
