Today, news broke that the Car`das Smugglers successfully completed an operation within Triumvirate space, evading detection and manoeuvring through the Coalition’s ramshackle security.
The event followed not long after Marine Colonel Colt Morgan haphazardly dismissed claims that his government was in any danger of attacks from their nemesis Zann Consortium or their allies.
According to unofficial spokesperson Caalin Wooro, 2nd LT. of Coalition Marines, Car`das was able to smuggle billions worth of high market value rebel armor and weapons right out from under the nose of Triumvirate forces for the third time in almost three years.
A move that has critics questioning the application of security measures the Coalition Marines repeatedly claimed were in effect since the previous two attacks.
Originally the operation in Year 17 was led by then Zann second in command, Greyson Abrams and then Defiler Rick Fias. Triumvirate saw the loss of billions of credits in ships and other assets as well as citizenry.
This created an uprising, rallying some of the local populace to the crime syndicate’s cause. Within days after that looting three years ago, then Crime Lord of Zann Consortium, Ximaro Jix, and numerous Defilers were able to smuggle out over 1,000 X-45 sniper rifles from underneath Coalition forces and their allies. These were put in place in an effort to stop Zann from obtaining any more assets.
Now, led by Jax Calder, Leader of Car`das Smugglers, Crime Lord Ximaro Jix and Zann Circle member Kyota Navic along with a small crew of Defilers and smugglers, the tight-knit group have once again liberated billions worth of assets.
According to correspondents, Car’das and Zann operatives are rumoured to have been able to sneak behind the shields of various Triumvirate planets and onto ships, freeing Zann supporters who were incarcerated during the first looting of Year 17. The assets and individuals were then smuggled off-world to undisclosed safe areas.
In addition to the over 2,500 munitions, armors, and medical items seized, Car`das operatives obtained intelligence files that contain detailed information on Triumvirate operations and personnel which have been handed over to Kyota Navic.
Navic has yet to release a statement about the rumored acquisition of these intelligence files or what the fate of Triumvirate’s information will be.
“We knew they wouldn’t deal with us. It’s why Kyota approached them, their arrogance and insults justifiably support this third and successful assault."
Ximaro stated via a broadcast regarding Kyota Navic speaking to Triumvirate leadership.
When asked about ongoing dealings with Coalition Marines Caalin Wooro and Cordin Siprus, Calder stated only, “We appreciate the business Siprus and Wooro have given our outfit,
and I’m giving my personal guarantee that they were not involved in this operation in way shape or form and are still very much loyal Marines to the Coalition cause.”
Colonel Colt Morgan refused to cooperate when questioned by media representatives regarding the heist or even the suspicion of individuals within his ranks with Car`das ties.
