marine supply

The Battle Barge is the largest Space Marine warship and is configured for close support of planetary landings. Battle Barges were originally a simple designation during the Great Crusade to refer to Battleships under Legiones Astartes control. Today, most chapters control two or three Battle Barges designed to deploy a fighting force to planets in a rapid fashion. Each of Battle Barge capable of deploying 3 Space Marine Companies plus supplies and support. Large amounts of space are designed to hold launch bays for inter-system craft and drop pods allowing up to three companies to deploy simultaneously. The vessel is extremely heavily armored and well-shielded for breaching planetary defenses while also protecting its cargo. It is also a dangerous enemy, especially with boarding actions but also contains enough firepower to destroy all but the most powerful of warships. Battle Barges are some of the most powerful ships the Imperium has at its disposal, due to both the power of the ships and their contents.

Rescue workers race to find survivors at collapsed Mexico City school

Hour after excruciating hour, Mexicans were transfixed by dramatic efforts to reach a young girl thought buried in the rubble of a school destroyed by a magnitude 7.1 earthquake. She reportedly wiggled her fingers, told rescuers her name and said there were others trapped near her. Rescue workers called for tubes, pipes and other tools to reach her.

News media, officials and volunteer rescuers all repeated the story of “Frida Sofia” with a sense of urgency that made it a national drama, drawing attention away from other rescue efforts across the quake-stricken city and leaving people in Mexico and abroad glued to their television sets.

But she never existed, Mexican navy officials now say.

“We want to emphasize that we have no knowledge about the report that emerged with the name of a girl,” navy Assistant Secretary Angel Enrique Sarmiento said Thursday. “We never had any knowledge about that report, and we do not believe — we are sure — it was not a reality.”

Sarmiento said a camera lowered into the rubble of the Enrique Rebsamen school showed blood tracks where an injured person apparently dragged himself or herself, and the only person still listed as missing was a school employee. But it was just blood tracks — no fingers wiggling, no voice, no name. Several dead people have been removed from the rubble, and it could have been their fingers rescuers thought they saw move.

Sarmiento later apologized for being so categorical, saying that if a person is still trapped it could be a child or an adult.

“The information existing at this moment doesn’t allow us to say if it is an adult or a child,” Sarmiento said. “As long as there is the slightest possibility of someone alive, we will continue searching with the same energy.” (AP)

“We need to Bunny.” Aster’s ears perked up.

“Christ, would you stop calling him that?” snapped Agent Mendez, a recent recruit and former marine, Bunnymund’s memory supplied. Most of the agents wouldn’t dare speak to him the way Jack did for fear of his temper, but Jack was in a category by himself.

IRAQ. Baghdad governorate. Near Baghdad. April 8, 2003. 

“An American soldier killed during the battle for Baghdad, 10 miles from the city’s centre. I basically hitch-hiked convoys and helicopters to get to Baghdad before the fall of Saddam. I ended up with this unit of Marines who were supplying munitions and meals to the front-line soldiers. I decided to stay with them. Being in the right place at the right time is a must for many journalists - I guess I was in the wrong place but at the right time.”

26th MEU Marines Offload Relief Supplies in Key West after Hurricane Irma

the marines malevolent are basically loyalist chaos space marines, from their chronic supply shortages and cobbled together wargear, to the way they brutalize their underlings and terrify their inferiors. Just replace cartoonish villainy with zeal and a callous disregard for the sanctity of human life

another (longer) installment in this post-Neverland AU of mine. Featuring handcuffs, magic, and of course, more arguments.

previous parts: [x] [x]


The trip to Neverland left its marks on the Jolly Roger. Aside from the shadow still staining the main foresail an ominous inky black, the ship also carried away several singe marks, torn ropes, and general chaos left behind by a crew with no sailing experience.

It’s a lot of work for one man. He’s never had to do it by himself before, but his crew is in the winds and Smee has disappeared, and for all Emma’s talk of being part of something, he’s still noticeably alone.

But there is no way in this or any other realm that he’s going to go begging anyone for help.

He focuses on the repairs. He’s learned to make do, over the years, but since he’s in port anyway, he might as well look for a few replacements. Including the sail, if he can manage it. Removing the shadow is out of the question, but maybe he can remove the sail…

He marches into the first shop he finds, a ramshackle building with a faded sign saying “Marine Supplies”.

The shopkeeper, an older man with greying hair and a paunch, shrinks back a little when Killian walks towards the counter. It’s a common reaction, but Killian finds himself resenting it, just a little. He just helped the town’s heroes save Henry. A little gratitude might be too much to ask, but a little less suspicion would be nice.

“Do you have any sails in stock?” he asks without preamble.

The man’s eyes are wide. “You’re Captain Hook.”

“What gave it away?” Killian asks with a strained smile. He steps up to the counter. “Do you have any—”

“No,” the man blurts out. “No sails.”

The Yeşilova Incident

In April 1991 British Marines were tasked with distributing relief to 3,000 Kurdish and Assyrian refugees, who had fled Saddam Hussein’s persecution of Kurds in Iraq following an unsuccessful Kurdish and Shiite rebellion. The Kurdish and Assyrian refugees were living in refugee camps just over the border in Turkey. Turkish soldiers instead of cooperating with the British Marines in relief distribution, were under orders to steal all the blankets, bed linen, flour and food, including sixty boxes of water. The British Marines piled all the supplies back in their helicopters, to avoid giving them to the Turkish soldiers and to not give them to the refugees which might have started a firefight with the Turks. Various diseases, including cholera, broke out among the civilians because they were deprived of medical services by the Turkish military. To this day, Turkey has never explained or apologized for the incident.
