PLANETARY DETAILS:
Proserpina is a death trap of enormous proportions. Seven times the planet has been the object of ferocious contests between the Draconis Combine and the Federated Suns. After each battle, the planet and its people have suffered grievously.

Of Proserpina's five continents, two are complete wastelands. The northern Amerigo continent is unapproachable except in an environmental suit because of the many long-lasting contact poisons in the soil and water.

During the last battle between Davion and Kurita, the Combine forces wrested the planet away from the Federated Suns by releasing huge plumes of nerve gas that killed approximately 60 percent of the planet's civilian and military populations. Needless to say, the Kurita troops had little problem taking Proserpina after that.

Despite all this, Proserpina now has a large population and a variety of minor industries. Because the planetary capital of Conqueror's Pride is also a prefecture capital, it supports many bureaucrats. Proserpina is also the homeworld of the 9th Benjamin Regulars, under the command of Denice Eastmoreland.

Proserpina also possess its own militay academy. The University of Proserpina teaches combat skills to aspiring infantrymen, MechWarriors, AeroSpace Pilots, and artillery personnel. Many students specializing in conventional arms attend this university.

Native to Proserpina, Blood Limpets are blood-sucking quasi-reptiles with hard green shells and weighing about a kilogram. When they sense body heat, these creatures rise above the muck of their swamp and run with amazing speed on their six legs toward the prey. Needless to say, they gave the early colonists on Proserpina endless nightmares.

EMPLOYER SITUATION REPORT:
"Now that she's back, the First Princess is hot and raring to go after the trendy enemy of the day - this so-called ULTRA and their puppet master Agatha Marik. And she'll cosy up to our greatest threats to do it. That's a question we should ask our dear princess - does she really 'Remember Kentares'? Cause the rest of us sure as hell do - and unlike her, we're gonna do something about it."
-Marshal Jerome Sandoval, CO Robinson Rangers Brigade.

Duke Tancred Sandoval may no longer be the Regent-Prince of the Federated Suns, but that doesn't mean he will ignore the threat of the Draconis Combine to his March. The Sandoval Family is numerous and powerful, and he has their full support. Despite having suffered major casualties during the 5th Succession War, the Robinson Rangers Brigade is eager to blood the latest crop of fresh replacements and build 'seedcorn officers' for further expansion of the Brigade.

A large-scale raid on Proserpina is being planned to give the 3rd Robinson Rangers some much-needed battle experience. The task force TOE is given below. There will be large numbers of attached officers at regimental and brigade HQs to observe the battle. Latest intel suggests the elite 1st Proserpina Hussars regimental battlegroup is garrisoning the planet, because of this there is a need for mercenary units to provide additional strength to the task force.

The Inflexible's flotilla augmented by the 32nd Federation Assault Squadron will clear the system of aerospace defenders and then picket the zenith and nadir jump points. The task force will land on the primary continent of Bragadin and march on the capital of Conqueror's Pride. The task force's objectives will be to substantially attrit the 1st Proserpina Hussars; occupy the Bulldog Enterprises and Guided Technologies arms factories and capture or destroy supplies, equipment, goods and materials as opportunity allows. The operative keyword here is 'scorched earth'.
