Alright but be on your guard as these pirates are pretty well organized, information on what ships they have is sketchy at best, but it is rumoured that they possess Battleships... And possibly a Gearld R Ford class carrier.

1st SHAM is in action today in eastern Colombia, near the Venezuelan border. Thousands of Venezuelans continue to flee into neighboring Colombia to seek food and medicine. Venezuela’s government is still refusing to allow tons of supplies that are staged along the border into the country.

1st SHAM’s medical company has established a clinic, with Colombia’s permission, to treat Venezuelan refugees and provide basic preventive medicine. Most of the care is being provided in the clinic, but those that are gravely ill and those in need of more advanced diagnostic procedures are being flown by helicopter to the hospital ship Odysseus.

Members of the security company have also gone ashore to provide local security and manage pedestrian and foot traffic at the clinic. The engineer company is working with locals to drill wells and build a sanitation system that will service the clinic and the nearby village.

Redleg,

Like the tents. Gamma Goat is a bit on the far side. Hippie Doctors Without Borders vehicle? Just what kind of meds do they carry in that thing?

That's a vehicle belonging to a local farmer. Same with the jeep out front. I guess I need to invest in some civilian vehicles if I want to hang out with them!

1st SHAM continues its mission in Colombia today, providing medical support and security for Venezuelan refugees, as well as local Colombians. The engineer company is putting the finishing touches on the structure for a permanent medical clinic while the medical and HQ elements work with the local government to ensure that staffing and supplies are in place to take over when the ROD personnel leave in the next few days.

In addition, the security company has been evaluating its two light armor platforms in jungle conditions. This deployment is a test of the SHAM concept, and that includes deciding which equipment is best suited to the task.

Hoplite Tactical Solutions is a private military company that was founded by several ROD veterans in 2015. The company has made a name for itself through several contracts in the middle east and is attracting ex-special operations soldiers from around the world. Approximately 70% of Hoplite’s operators are from the ROD military, while the other 30% consist of personnel from the US, Britain, Ireland, and other nations.

Pictured here is a Hoplite team unassing from helicopters on a mission somewhere in the northern Syria / Turkey / Iraq area.

Those Hoplites are real warriors. Look great. Like the blades on the UH-1.
Chicovia-dom on SW of Turkey and Armenia-dom NW of Turkey will watch out for these guys. Have two friends there if they get into trouble. Also Country of Tripoli-dom, north of Israel stands ready.

The Canadian Forces in Brazil is asking the RODs help in securing the border with Venezuela due to recent attacks launched by Al-Kabab.

The ROD is adamant that it does not want to be dragged into a costly guerrilla war. We only reluctantly deployed an infantry battalion to the can*al zone because our goal always has been, and continues to be, ensuring that the Panama Can*al stays open to international traffic.

Having said that, we do wish to support our allies when they need help, and we do want to kill terrorists whenever we can.

The ROD is therefor willing to allocate combat aircraft from the carrier Armageddon to support Canadian ground forces operating along the Brazilian/Venezuelan border. A-6E and F/A-18C aircraft have sufficient range to cover most of the border region from the Armageddon’s operating area in the Pacific. We have been cultivating a relationship with the Colombian government and they have agreed to let ROD aircraft fly through their airspace.

Aircraft can perform both close air support and air interdiction missions. The ROD will deploy a liaison team to the Canadian command post to coordinate ROD air operations with Canadian and Venezuelan forces. ROD aircraft will, of course, remain under ROD command at all times.

In addition to air support, the ROD can deploy a 12-man special operations team to operate in the area if Canada and Brazil agree that the team will operate under ROD command. The ROD air operations liaison team can coordinate their activities as well.

[GM’s Note: We are getting involved with the stipulation that activity directly affecting ROD units is communicated and approved by me. I’m not an expert and the ROD is not invincible, but I do take some small degree of pride in my technical and tactical competence, and I do roll dice for combat actions. So if you intend to shoot my planes down or ambush my operators I want to be able to roll some dice for them.]

OK send in your liaison team, but please be advised there is some heavy smoke in the from the vast forest fire on the Venezuelan side of the border after fighters from our carrier HMCS Canada initiated a Napalm Barrage hoping to drive the AL-Kabab out of the area for good.

Not sure how I missed this last message, but that is a no-go. ROD forces will never be placed under the command of the Canadian military, especially in light of the incompetence that they have demonstrated recently. All ROD forces have withdrawn to Panama or ROD ship offshore.
