OP109: Banana Boat

OP109: Banana Boat


OP83 “RESISTANCE NL NEEDS A BOAT” – a very successful funding operation and RES Netherlands has celebrated already successes with the “banana” boat. The battle in the Biesbosch is fierce, ENL has two very active agents who have access to private/company motor boats. During the MAGNUS Shards ENL dominated the Biesbosch, the RES Bananaa Boat could not be launched….engine trouble. One RES agent did some maintenance, and…Succes! unfortunately, this was too late for the Shards…. We all know how that ended….

Last week the RES Navy captured the Biesbosch portals again; but not with the Banana! When the banana was half way the river engine failed! The engine just had maintenance but seized up anyway. Our two brave agents had to row back to shore where they hired a rental boat to capture the portals after all. The victory was short lived, ENL launched one of their ships a hour later. Later that day blue fields covered the Biesbosch and the city of Dordrecht, but with the Biesbosch portals green a lot more clearing had to be done.

We have looked at the engine and unfortunately, we had to conclude that the engine is dead. Now we would like to buy an new motor, but no longer a fossil fuel engine, we would like to have an electric motor. A few reasons for this:

  1. An electric engine is less heavy, (the engine on the Banana weighs 35 kg!). Because of the great weight of the engine maximum two agents can go with the banana and they will have to be strong to transport and install the engine.
  2. An electric engine needs less maintenance and is easier to “fuel”. (after every operation the agents who used the engine are to refuel it, but not all agents get the fuel/oil mixture right). An electric engine has a battery which can just be plugged into a socket.
  3. MOST IMPORTANTLY In the near future it will be forbidden to use fossil fuel engines in the Biesbosch nature reserve! That will put the ENL ships out of business! Hopefully RES will gain the upper hand in the Biesbosch!

Thank you in advance for supporting this funding operation.

OP108: Scilly Saturday

OP108: Scilly Saturday


Agents from Wales, Ireland and Spain recapture strategic portals on the the Scilly islands of St Mary’s, St Agnes, and St Martin’s. Ferries had to be organized with miliatry precision in order to be able to visit all 3 islands on the same day. A mountain bike helped the on site agent get to the portals on time while other agents in Ireland and Spain secured blocking links. A long day with planes, boats and bicycles but definitely worth while for the Resistance.

OP107: Go Go UK RES


We have the technology! UK RES needs a special bit of kit to snare some hard access portals over the summer and secure some mega MU. After the op this will be a permanent resource for UK RES use.
