Raid on Tango Urilla Ambush at Whiskey Outpost Invasion of Planet P

The Ambush at Whiskey Outpost refers to a trap laid by the Bugs for the Mobile Infantry on Planet P.

HistoryEdit

After a successful battle against the Arachnids on Tango Urilla, Fleet Command received a distress call from General Owen at his command post on Planet P. The Mobile Infantry responded by sending their best unit, Rasczak's Roughnecks, to investigate. Having previously been engaged on Tango Urilla where casualties were sustained, and with the current objective being a scouting mission, the Roughnecks deployed only a Platoon for the mission. Despite this, Lieutenant Rasczak personally led the mission. The Roughnecks were deployed a distance away from the outpost moving through mountainous terrain to reach it causing radio interference. Before reaching the outpost, it was clear to the Roughnecks that there was an Arachnid presence on Planet P when their radio operator, Gillespie, was grabbed and carried away by a Hopper Bug. Rasczak used a sighted Morita Assault Rifle to kill the tortured Gillespie in a mercy killing. By the time they arrived, all the personnel at Whiskey Outpost had been killed. The only survivor was General Owen, who became a post-traumatic wreck. While inspecting the base, they discovered that the Arachnids had sucked out the brain of the outpost garrison's radio operator Lieutenant Farley.

Only moments later, hundreds, if not thousands, of Arachnid Warrior Bugs supported by several Tanker Bugs and Hopper Bugs rushed on the outpost. Despite the best efforts of the Roughnecks, the Arachnid forces were able to penetrate the base just as a Fleet Landing Boat, piloted by Rodger Young (176) pilots Carmen Ibanez and Zander Barcalow, arrived to pull the troopers out. Over half the unit was killed, including Jean Rasczak and Dizzy Flores. General Owen was killed by a Hopper Bug that had been shot down by Corporal Johnny Rico. Starship Troopers
