Operation PANDA STEEL
Summary of events
Operation PANDA STEEL was a DMG Operation that took place in June 2007.
The solitary objective of PANDA STEEL was the pacification of the technomantic disruption at the heart of Phi Base, following the failure of Operation MERCURY BEGONIA.
Operation PANDA STEEL was a partial success, with the upper levels of Phi base successfully pacified and the technomantic disruption isolated within the lowest sub-basement of the facility.
However, the casualties suffered by the DMG taskforce in achieving even this much were overwhelming. Of a total forty-five deployed agents, twenty-two were killed and twenty wounded.
As a result of Operation PANDA STEEL, Epsilon Group was left with almost half their personnel out of action, and a significant number of cyclical Operations Squadron and supplementary staff from Logistics and Research were deployed to hold the facility while the wounded recuperated and more personnel could be found and assigned on a permanent basis.
Gamma Group, while it also suffered depletion of its deployed troops, was more adequately prepared to absorb the losses within it’s organisational structure. Gamma was assigned to police POWER breaches within Phi and Epsilon territories for the time being.
