Heavy Gear - Betrayal of Honor

Operation Boomerang
After the failure of negotiations between the giant mega-corporations of Capitol and Imperial, open conflict between the two has begun.  As the Cartel do their best to find a way to cease the hostilities between the two before the other major mega-corporations find a way to get involved, fighting has broken out all throughout Mars, and the city of San Dorado is no the site of some of the fiercest fighting.  In the outskirts of the Capitol capital, Imperial troops have managed to overrun a Capitol position and capture Colonel Edward Frank, a member of Capitol high command that was reviewing troops at the frontline as Imperial forces launched an assault over into the Capitol side of the city.  Now, as Imperial commanders are preparing to transport the colonel back to Imperial territory as a prisoner of war, Capitol agents locate the position of the colonel, and the Capitol commander draw up Operation Boomerang to retrieve the colonel before he can be taken into Imperial territory to be interrogated fully.

Still no word on how my Goliaths did?  Speak soon, Hal, but not too soon; much going on right now between work and the band.
