Incoming Transmission... Leutnant Reginald Davison, Local Militia:
*static*2784ng on? Good. Mercenaries, good to see you all, and thank you for your correct interpretation of the emergency signal. We just got our radio towers back online after a saboteur took them down last week. Your sudden arrival has forced the Oberon Confederation to back off and leave for greener pastures. We're not expecting any more trouble from them.
So, with luck, this will probably be the easiest 12 million C-Bills you'll ever make. And as a gesture of my gratitude, I will be lifting the salvage percentage up to 30 percent for this completed mission, plus a two million C-Bill payment.
He is visibly looking at a sheet of paper while on camera.
Your technician teams have informed me that they have salvaged the majority of a Lyran prototype 'Mech that the Oberon assholes were not supposed to have. If you leave the "Bushwacker" in our hands, I will let you have another 1 Million C-Bill bonus. We need this back so that TharHes Industries can keep working out the bugs on the machine.
I'll let you know when something else comes up. Enjoy the dustball.
Incoming Transmission from "Silent Eagle"... Tactical Commander Sarah Cosgrove
Shortly after the battle, I made an arrangement with a local alloy maker here on Bone-Norman. Nearby iron and nickel mines makes it very easy to source materials, and so once I sent a manufacturer specifications on how to produce the Gauss ammo, they agreed to produce ammo for us. They say they can make about three tons per month, and it will be 40,000 C-Bills per ton of ammo.
