[GBW] D11 – PDSRE – Port Operations

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

During the football game with the local kids, the team asked a few innocent questions. Being truthful, the kids let slip enough information for the team to piece together that an arms shipment would be arriving at the port in a few days.

Brotherhood of Soalon forces arrive to pickup the container. They wait impatiently for the gantry crane operator to lift the container from the recently docked ship.

Waiting PDSRE forces spring the trap. The Nk-529 zooms in while Master Sergeant Mishkin appears from the sleeper cab of the Maersk truck. From the control cab of the gantry crane, Sergeant Major Gurkin rides the spreader back down to provide an unexpected angle of attack from above. "Hey meatbags!" the SgtMaj yells as he drops in.

Looking up and around, the BoS terrorists notice they are outgunned and outflanked. Recognizing the lady behind the heavy machine gun, they slowly lower their guns. She already has a nasty reputation as a trigger happy, cold hearted killer. Quietly, they surrender.

The glorious forces of PDSRE take the truck to an unused section of the dock and unload the truck. The container is loaded with crates of ammunition and plastic explosives, assault rifles, submachine guns, pistols, RPG-L77 rocket launchers with reloads, mortars, and a man portable anti-tank rocket. While none is the newest PSIC weaponry, in the hands of the terrorists, it could still cause considerable havoc.

“There’s enough firepower here to outfit a full company of soldiers,” Sergeant Major Gurkin comments as he gazes on their haul.

Major Brickinov nods his head in agreement. He notes certain elements are missing and smiles.

Gracie. I built the weapons to be fairly nondescript. I noticed the big underwater piece when I was digging for the camera bits for the rocket launchers and thought it would make a decent anti-tank weapon.

Great port scene! My favorite is the container crane!

Thanks. I do railroads and have a bunch of intermodal containers. Originally, it was going to be a land crane for a big rail yard, but one cantilever extension later, and it's a port crane. The winch does work, somewhat. I need to redo the cables as they are trapped when the container is attached.

Damn Feuer you keep chucking out huge builds, I'm curious how functional is the crane? Does it slide and grab or do you have to reposition it manually?

Thanks. As mentioned, I was already building the big gantry crane for my railyard setup. Modified it, built a container ship, then filled it with my collection of containers. The road plates are great for making things like this easy. As for the crane, the only thing that is mechanized is the winch. Everything else must be done by hand. I can barely motorize a train. Going into things like circuit cubes and the like would require somebody to help me, in person.
