Latest update on Davion secret project codename
As you already know Intruder is first Davion omnimech
design based on two clan designs: Thor and Loki.
They made the prototype mech on March 22 this year.
The prototype was stolen next day by a Steiner spy, so
much of Davion security. I am worried that we did not
know about that spy too.
Colonel Anton Karpusin, the project leader immediately
hired a small mercenary band that happened to be on the
planet in order to by a mech. He gave them a brand new
Jagermech and told them to consider it as their payment
after they fulfill their mission. Of course he assigned his
aide Captain Natalie Burns to the mission as well.
The entire Steiner spy net was sacrificed in order to delay
the Davions and the mercenaries as well as entire lance of
mechs who guarded the Steiner dropship landing zone.
The mercenaries engaged and destroyed Steiner lance
bat were unable to stop the dropship.
However their resourceful jumpship captain guessed the
location of the small Steiner jumpship and was able to
calculate their jump destination.
Fortunately for mercenaries they were too far from Steiner
space so they had to stop and recharge on the planet in
Chaos March the name I have not been able to determine
They passed the information to Colonel Karpusin and
jumped after the Steiners. Colonel pulled his connections
in Davion intel and arranged for a small warship to jump to
that system and intercept the Steiner jumpship. There is no
record about this operation and the ships name. They
intercepted and took over Steiner jumpship but the
dropship with 7 Steiner mechs (including the stolen
Intruder) escaped to the planet surface.
I don't know what happened there but after 27 days
mercenaries returned with only three of their six (seven
with Captain Burns mech) mechs including the stolen
prototype. They brought six damaged mechs as salvage.
They were arrested and jailed immediately after their
return. When Captain Burns who was wounded in the
operation recovered, she tried to release them and
confronted her superior officer. He could not arrest her
because the court marshal could arise too much questions
about the operation and he could easily find himself under
arrest. He did sign the papers for her transfer deep into
periphery. Unfortunately for him it was too late. On the
same day she forged his signature, released the
mercenaries and escaped with them and the Intruder
When they landed on Outreach the new mech was
spotted and the Davion intel passed the info to Davion
Colonel Karpusin claimed that he hired the mercenaries to
test the prototype because he could trust no one after the
'incident' when Steiner spy tried to still the mech.
Not long after Colonel was retired from duty and new
commander established a strong connection with
mercenary unit, reinstated Captain Burns and let them
keep the mech with one condition: Self-destruct
mechanism has been built into mech so if the pilot ejects
and they cannot recover the mech they are bound to
Since then, ten more Intruders have been built and
transported to Davion elite units for field-testing.
When the mech will go to full production is yet unknown.
