SternGuard
“Duty bound to high risks”








mil.merc

Overview


Who Are We?


SternGuard is one of the largest and leading providers of security, training and specialist solutions in Central Greater Dienstad, with diversified operations that span the entire region and the world. SternGuard is committed to delivering to its clientele a bespoke service to address any and all security concerns; from VIP escorts and installation security, to kinetic close support and frontline battlegroup combat. We also provide diverse training packages that can be tailor made to fit any operational need. We are also one of the world leaders in information security and exploitation, providing experts in the fields of data analysis, signals (Civilian and Military) SIGINT and HUMINT, and battlespace C4SIR.


Client Focused

Nothing is more important than your mission, your demands, your end goal. It is SternGuard’s duty to deliver. We will approach any and all contract offers objectively with an open mind, and endeavour to deliver you an acceptable solution to your security concerns for the best value for your money. We understand circumstances change both quickly and over time, as such are amiable to such changes and allow for flexible rearrangements of terms and condition to better suit you the client.


Values and Standards

We are duty bound to high risks, and it is a key principle we adhere to. Our staff and operators know that SternGuard clientele demand our best in high risks. Thus, it is a duty to seize the day for the client and strive deliver the results expected despite the risk.
We aim to deliver our services and expertise with all the professionalism and discipline you would expect from any experienced military outfit and our middle and upper line management work hard to ensure these standards do not slip.
We also endeavour to display and promote the best leadership in the business, drawing from all available expertise within our ranks, but also learning from our clientele and opponents. Assimilating the best aspects of leadership, whether it be encouraging operators or leading them into battle, to being decisive in security decisions or delivering on corporate objectives on time.
This sense of duty also extends internally to our own organisation, a duty to ourselves and our own moral being. In the sense the client should be at the forefront of the business is sacrosanct, but only in so much as it oes not violate the sense of duty and honour that operators should have to each other. Therefore, SternGuard will not participate in operations to fundamentally break this moral code or engage in conflict of interest operations where the organisation is pitted against itself between two clientele.


About us…

Established in 1998, SternGuard was founded by ten of the Holy Empire of Stevid’s foremost experts in finance, the defence sector, military doctrine and theory, and also politics – with over a hundred years’ experience in their respective roles where they crossed over. The formation of SternGuard came as the members were reaching the end of their tenures in their respective roles but still wished to utilise their expertise but in a new competitive business role. A unique identifier of all ten individuals were that they all held knighthoods and chivalric orders from the crown of Stevid. These honours formed the very founding principle of SternGuard: Duty. This was to act in contrast to the religiously influence foreign policy doctrines of the Stevidian government, allowing the business of security to transcend national borders and ideology.

The first real test for SternGuard came in the latter stages of the Corporate Alliance War over a decade ago, where newly found natural resources were discovered by small nations and said nations were subsequently attacked by the Blackhelm Confederacy. SternGuard actively approached these smaller nations and offered its services to protect and overtly defend their new oil installations, while taking no active part in the war. The decision to lobby these nations as opposed to being approached by the client directly was indicative of the company the founders wish to present to the world. The Holy Empire of Stevid was not involved in the war despite having a vested interest. SternGuard believed it was duty bound to protect these installations (so long as the owners agreed) in the absence of Imperial forces. As a result nearly two battalions worth of combined arms operators were deployed to sea and land installations and saw limited kinetic engagements against hostile forces.

The experiences of guarding and successfully defending oil rigs subsequently gave rise to the idea of fortified forward operating bases (FOBs) based on oil rigs. Aside from the corporation’s main headquarters situated in Stevid Capita, SternGuard has several land based installations around the world – but the most novel are akin to whole military bases that are comprised of several struts of a complete oil rig complex designed and built by SeaCul. As regional FOBs, SternGuard now operates a land fortress in Stevidian South Greal, multi-strut rig platforms in the seas between Stevid and Dersconi and between Kassaran and the Timocractic Republic (Approx. GR: 25 India), as well as expeditionary force of ships including fast tankers and semi-flattop landing ships. Additional small offices for administration and equipment storage are located in partner nations and throughout the Empire.

The sense of duty espoused by SternGuard, as highlighted in the Values and Standards section is typified by the honorifics our operators hold. The statuses and awards that were bestowed on the founders of SternGuard are replicated to a degree within the organisation. These awards, honours and medals are awards to operators who display the finest virtues one would expect from any knight of any chivalric order. SternGuard also uses this as a selling point and clientele should be aware of such awards that operators use for it reveals experience and expertise in their role. Every medal and honour tells a story of great deeds and that the operator is highly valued by SternGuard. The ceremonies too are great events, and is a cause for much celebration – it is not unusual for the deeds of men deployed on operational contracts to come back to SternGuard establishments with the clientele passing on the appraisal of the excellent work to SternGuard. Conversely, poor representation by our operatives is treated in the same manner as one would expect when minimal standards are not met.


Where we are based

General Headquarters – Stevid Capita, Stevid
Image
GHQ Central Offices - Stevid Capita

Principle administration offices for the corporate affairs of the SternGuard company. Contract negotiations, inter-corporation or state-to-corp talks are almost always conducted here, either in person or over live link. Subsidiary and affiliate company offices are also located onsite but will also have local administrative buildings in host-nations.

FOB Avalon – Stevidian South Greal
This is a land fortress located towards the mountainous south-west of the colonial territory within the Holy Empire of Stevid. It is primarily from this location the contracts serving eastern Greater Dienstad and the rest of the world are conducted, or the very least controlled. As such it is the largest such installation in SternGuard’s arsenal and competes with other foreign private military contractors as one of the largest such non-nation-state military sites in the world.

Image
FOB Excalibur
FOB Excalibur – Southern Approaches (Between Stevid and Dersconi)
This is a multi-platform sea rig that sits almost halfway between Stevid and Dersconi colony and, while in international waters, remains exclusively within the Empires area of economic and military interest.
The rig comprises of ten interconnected platforms that are gathered in clusters. The rigs are protected by small naval craft and
VTOL aircraft. This FOB services Greater Dienstad for most overt kinetic
combat operations, but services the rest of the world for other SternGuard contract ventures.

FOB Pridwen – Northern Vanguat Sea (GDGR: 25-India)
This is a multi-platform sea rig that is situated far out in the international waters of north west Greater Dienstad at grid reference 25-India. It is the most remote of the FOBs and is therefore the largest rig-based FOB with fifteen interconnected platforms comprising of five clusters. It has a dedicated sea tender fleet as the expeditionary naval force is stationed at FOB Pridwen. This FOBs services kinetic operations in western Greater Dienstad, as well as interregional naval task force operations. In regards to non-combat operations, this FOB is the principle installations for signals intercept and analysis.

Apologies if you are not permitting replies, I saw you add the necessary order forms and wanted to go ahead and submit this. I can delete if requested.





TO: Sternguard, Customer Relations or Equivalent
FROM: Chief General Titus Bond, Chief General of the Confederate States Armed Forces, Confederate States of Anagonia
SUBJECT Medical First Aid Combat Training; Third Party Certification Request

Dear SternGuard,

Recently the Confederate States Military Police decided to institute a mandatory training period for both veteran and new Military Policeman to adequately fulfill their obligations to serving the citizenry. There have been, reportedly, multiple incidents within the last five years that could have been deescalated had a more adequately and professionally medically trained MP been able to assist. This is in no way a statement detracting from the Military Police and their ability to serve, but as Chief General I agree with the General of the Confederate States Military Police that providing enough training and certification for their branch will assist first responders on scene to accidents and incidents better. Normally we'd outsource then domestically, however having noticed the recent arrival of your storefront and the options available, I want to try a different route.

It is with this intention that I request a permanent contract, pending evaluation and review from both your observers and our own, that will provide a third-party professional source to train and certify every single Military Policeman in medical first aid and assistance. If this pilot program works out over the course of six months, I shall consider this a permanent arrangement between SternGuard and the Confederate States Military. Our main training facility for our Military Police is on West Island, within the West Island Military Complex and Training Installation. There all new mandatory recruits just starting their mandatory 4 year will be present, and we intend to cycle into this program veterans who have no "adequate" first aid experience.

In addition to this proposal I wish to add that we would permit a basing facility for your training personnel should this arrangement be found to be adequate and doable within the first two months of the process. Your facility will be prepared and laid out for your construction personnel by the Confederate States Army on West Island, nearby to the West Island Military Complex and Training Installation. Housing facilities will also be constructed for your personnel, should both of our sides agree this arrangement is beneficial.

I look forward to your reply concerning this interesting proposal.

Sincerely,
Chief General Titus Bond
Chief Secretary of the Council of the States
Chief General of the Confederate States Armed Forces
Confederate States of Anagonia

RE: Contract for Military BLS/First Aid/Emergency (Golden Hour) medical trauma training and consultation

Dear Titus Bond ,

On behalf of SternGuard, I would like to thank you for approaching us to deliver your training, and your request is graciously accepted.

Our company can of course accommodate such a request. SternGuard has in it's employ former field medics and senior officer staff from some of Greater Dienstad's most distinguished armed forces - all bringing with them a wealth of experience. SternGuard is happy to provide up to a company strength of trainers and subject matter experts with a command and control section to oversee training curriculum, assess standards, administration and liaison with the West Island Military Complex and Training Installation that administrates military police personnel in training. The curriculum will encompass excepted international standards and can be subsequently tailored to include elements more befitting the needs of the Anagonian armed forces as necessary - extending course length as necessary. This can include additional bespoke training for the handling of interstate or terrorism related CBRN incidents.

Accreditation will be, as a minimum, to an internationally accepted standard and SternGuard will make to appropriate overtures to the appropriate health ministry or group in Anagonia to accredit qualifying troops to your national standards.

The only facilities our staff require would be accommodation and office space for the HQ element. On site facilities at West Island will be more than acceptable for training purposes.

A contract for the initial period of 6 months has been opened, with a review to take place into possible permanent extension should services no longer be required.

Kind regards,


Captain Henry Argyle

PRESS RELEASE


Wed 23 Sep


SternGuard is happy to announce a new relationship with the armed forces of Anagonia. The Confederate States approached SternGuard for a subcontract to deliver generic military basic life support education and field testing, together with first responder first aid, and ‘Golden Hour’ trauma training together with subject matter expect consultations.

This marks SternGuard’s first foray into business with a member state of the Gholgoth region, a region that the Holy Empire has maintained a more antagonist relations with over the decades. This new relationship is indicative of SternGuard’s mission to put aside the ideological machinations and politicking of nation-states and deliver bespoke training and expertise where required, regardless of the client’s relationship with the Holy Empire.

The training package involves an initial consultation and trial period of six months where the capabilities and fruitfulness of the relationship will be gauged by both SternGuard representatives. If both parties deem the arrangements and results to be acceptable then the contract will be extended permanently, with periodic reviews.

The training delivered will be in line with the current Anagonia military curriculum, but will include internationally recognised practices seen in civilian medical arenas as well as a military environment. This will also include initial medical responses to CBRN attacks. SternGuard plans to initiate a broad training package include indoor theoretical and classroom-based learning as well as hands on learning involving live people and likely scenarios troops will experiences in wartime – using individuals with previous experiences of dealing with such injuries incurred in such circumstances. SternGuard believes that such learning makes the training more real and visceral, thereby better preparing new recruits to the horrors of war and what is expected of them in the field.

SternGuard has been graciously offered use of facilities and accommodation at the Anagonian military academy at West Island, which with accommodate the headquarters and training wing that in total numbers approximately 160 staff.

RE: Contract for military intelligence and theatre live support

To whom it may concern within Pentaga Giudici,

SternGuard accepts your request. Notably is a complex contract and we will endeavour to deliver on all your aims and objectives. We will outline our methodology and concept of operations in this regard for your perusal, and will adjust accordingly in line with your expectations.

SternGuard operates a robust and comprehensive intelligence gathering network, which includes on the ground human intelligence sources as well as communications intelligence and intercept stations primarily operating from FOB Pridwen and FOB Avalon. Our operatives and high echelon chain of command will liaise with representatives of your nation and the coalition you are part of to ascertain specific theatres of interest (i.e. specific regions). SternGuard will then initiate intelligence gathering operations to locate groups that fit the prerequisite ideology that you seek and maintain tentative contact with them until they are vetted by us for viability for the further two step of the three step process you have outlined. Which equipment and how much is required will be dependant on the groups that we have uncovered, but SternGuard assures that the dissent groups to which you wish to support will be supplied and catered for to the best of SternGuard’s ability in order for them to defend themselves. Basic levels of equipment will include signals equipment and SternGuard direct implementation and training in its use, food and medical supplies, and arms if required.
As per the third step so outlined in your request, SternGuard will deploy number of overt operative to secure identified militia group holdings in a non-confrontation mission role in order to safeguard property and lives before the arrival CoHRE affiliated forces.

Duty of care to clientele and those they represent is of paramount concern to SternGuard. Rest assured that SternGuard is a aware that this are continuous responsibilities, as so the safety and well-being of the groups and people you represent will be managed by SternGuard for full duration of the 24 month contract. The deployment of up to 1,000 individuals is acceptable should operations escalate. For the initial first step process SternGuard will divert analyst and intelligence resources at Pridwen and Avalon to meet those needs and should not amount to an ‘equivalent deployment’ of no more than 300 operatives. However, as operations increase in size to supplying and safeguarding aforementioned groups, large aircraft and deployments over a wide global area will be required and as such 1,000 operatives is acceptable.


Kind regards,

RE: Affiliation Application

Col Alcada Tursus,

SternGuard humbly accepts your application for affiliation. The standards of honour, respect, commitment and dignity displayed by warriors who follow the ways of Holy Marsh are renown world wide. The ethics of the Holy Empire of Stevid can be found wanting and soldiers without a home to defend or a country to fight for on account of those entities refusing their service is a disservice to the noble causes those warriors hold dear. Therefore, SternGuard has no reason to do so either.

Should contracts undertaken by SternGuard require the services of M-CAT, or it is believed the expertise of your company would only enhance mission accomplishment, then SternGuard will make the requisite overtures as necessary to M-CAT.

We hope that this is the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship.


Kind regards,

Dear SternGuard,

As you may or may not have known, the Federal Republic of Nacrad has recently occupied the territories controlled by erstwhile People's Republic of Kongsi in a bloody conflict instigated by the People's Republic upon our humble nation. However, evidently, the local population had not received well to the Nacradian occupation, and some had taken up arms to rebel against Nacradian rule. As the Nacradian Armed Forces had become overstretched and exhausted, the President has authorised my request of SternGuard's esteemed services to assist in the peacekeeping by Nacrad. Attached is a form filled out on behalf of the Ministry of Defence to your request.

We hope to receive a timely reply from your most esteemed offices, and a successful collaboration of our forces.

We expect SternGuard's deployed force to be placed under the command of the occupation force during their tour of duty, and assist the Nacradian Army in containing and defeating the rebel forces, mainly by use of clandestine operations in the rear of rebel-controlled area, and assassination of key rebel leaders.

RE: Combat Deployment Against Kongsi Socialist Front and the Kongsi Maoist Liberation Force

Jamie M. Chan,

Your application to SternGuard for combat operatives to be deployed against rebellious groups is hereby accepted. We have looked into the conflicts your nation has participated in against Kongsi Socialist Front and the Kongsi Maoist Liberation Force (Hereby KSF and KMLF respectively) have have no instances of egregious behaviour that may undermine any contract signed between your state and SternGuard.

The deployment of 6,000 operatives is acceptable and in line with the knowledge that they will be acting as supplementary forces to your own deployment. Effective fighting against a trained and determined enemy should be conducted in favourable odds at approximately 3:1 - admittedly, counter insurgency operations means the enemy is highly decentralised. We also concur with the agreement that SternGuard combat operatives will have their own chain of command with answer directly to the theatre chain of command as headed by Nacrad senior officers. Operatives will also engage the enemy using Nacradian rules of engagement - this will not deviate even if SternGuard are operating alone.

If Nacrad wishes for the use of SternGuard military infrastructure, or generically approves its usage, the SternGuard will construct operating bases as required.

SternGuard also believes in appropriate escalation of force; to that end, armour, helicopter, and fast air assets will be made available to combat theatres but only used should the seriousness of operations increases to such a level that it becomes mission critical to use such assets. SternGuard will also rotate deployments of operators and senior staff, but will permanently provide Master Cornelius Atur as a liaison between your senior military staff and SternGuard.

We hope this new relationship between SternGuard and Nacrad brings an a swift end to menances your state is combating.


Kind regards,


Captain Henry Argyle

Description of Operations (As much details as possible): This would be a security detail for the King of Coconut Palm Island. While in the past the King's Royal Guard (similar to the United States' FBI) has traditionally provided security in the past, we are looking to provide the most security possible with a small, low-profile team. Still, collaboration with the Royal Guard would be essential. While they have their own way of doing things, they were impressed by the resources at your agency's disposal and are opening to working in collaboration with you, possibly letting your agents take the lead. The King does not need as much security as the leaders of many major countries, as the King is generally respected. However, our Island does face dangers, both from domestic terror groups (mostly small racist groups who disagree with the King's liberal politics) and from other nations that may oppose us. The King is looking for a low-profile team to be his 24/7 security. This involves three things:

1) Guarding the Royal Palace (where the King lives and works, and also where the Senate meets)-- this will not be SternGuard's responsibility entirely, as the King's Royal Guard has a field office inside the Palace. The Guard maintains a perimeter and has manpower, so you would mostly be "filling in the gaps" in protection.
2) Escorting the King while traveling on the Island. Except for major events like speeches (which are worked mostly by the Royal Guard), this would be relatively low-risk. Again, you would be accompanied by one-to-two members of the King's Royal Guard
3) Escorting the King during (relatively rare) times of international travel. This is the most tricky, as the King's Royal Guard has limited power overseas.

Deployment Numbers*: This is flexible, but in general we'd want a five-or-so agent team on duty at all times. Possibly more for international travel and high-threat events.

Estimated Contract Length (Months): Indefinite

*Deployment size must be proportionate to the operations being conducted. This is negotiable if client requests are niche

RE: Security Detail Deployment to the King of Coconut Palm Island

James Hughes,

Your application to SternGuard for a security detail deployment for the King of Coconut Palm Island is duly noted and accepted. Security in all it's forms is SternGuard primary focus, if not our primary export, and we are most honoured to be entrust to add additional security to the King.
SternGuard is happy to work closely with and under the direction of the Royal Guard, whose long term experience and expertise in guarding the King will be beneficial to all operators SternGuard sends. We can assure you and the King of the infallible professionalism of SternGuard and should you wish to allow our operators to lend security details you can be confident in our abilities. The availability of the 'Field Office' is beneficial as it removes the need for SternGuard to provide equipment for the security detail, although we can accommodate additional security measure should one request them. Premises security and VIP close protection are what SternGuard excel at and as such we will endeavour deliver this in our contract with you.

A platoon of operators will be deployed, amounting to approximately 20 personnel, together with an engagement and liaison team of three senior staff members with a Paladin acting as the senior operator on site. Any task organisation for SternGuard can be directed through them and any issues, probing attempts or vulnerabilities identified will communicated to you through this Paladin. Should you require a contract renegotiation for us to deliver a more bespoke set up or more operatives then we will happily oblige.


Kind regards,


Captain Henry Argyle

RE: Security Contract to The Naturist Theological State of the Cult of Xïl

Dr Komari,

Thank you for your enquiry to SternGuard for contracted security services to your nation. Unfortunately we will be unable to process and authorise your request due to a policy, and general inability of our company, to extend its services into the wider Multiverse. Furthermore, the stipulations you wish to impose upon our operators are difficult, if not impossible, to reconcile. The notion of 'fleeing' and 'surrendering' are terms unbecoming in an organisation such as SternGuard, and we prefer more honourable terminology.
In addition to this, our company cannot guarantee that our operators would act in the ways you would prefer or expect, as all decisions are made by ground commanders and not from the organisational top down.
Lastly, as you have pointed out to us, our weaponry would be largely ineffective given the technological superiority of possible opponents and therefore SternGuard is unwilling to commit lives in the knowledge that their duty is solely sacrifice. SternGuard operates on principles within an industry that requires personnel to put their lives on the line, and give them if necessary, but only when necessary and never needlessly.

We thank you for you enquiry and hope you find a suitable contractor for your security needs.


Kind regards,

RE: Security Contract to the Sultanate of Sharifistan

To whom it may concern,

Thank you for your enquiry to SternGuard for contracted security services to your nation. SternGuard's primary business export as a defence and security contractor is security itself, and to which we are happy to oblige to the Prince-Regent Khalid Suleiman Khan and his family, as well as your most at threat officials. An initial deployment of up to sixty operators will be sufficient for the task of ensuring rudimentary safety, but we would like to include a surge capacity of up to one hundred This is because each individual is a security operation in their own right, as these individuals lead separate lives though they may intermingle. To guarantee the safety of all, each must have a dedicated team. These teams will be headed by a Justicar each and overarching security control of SternGuard personnel will be held by a Captain. The Captain will act as a liaison between the Sultanate heads of security for each individual ensuring that each team is tailored to the asset they are protecting. Accommodation close to the asset's permanent location is preferred but not necessary as SternGuard can deploy temporary quarters.

Furthermore, a chain of command between SternGuard and local close protection teams, or police, will be required to prevent confusion in an emergency. SternGuard is more than happy, trained, and equipped to take the lead on personal security details. But this would require unfettered access to building floor plans, CCTV systems and primary access to the movements of the assets a minimum 24hrs before move. If this arrangement is unacceptable then the SternGuard deployment should remain at sixty and the Captain should be given access to as much information as necessary in order for SternGuard security to be effective.

We thank you for your custom and are happy to extend the arrangement beyond the 3 month period should you require.
SternGuard looks forward to working with the Sultanate and hopes this is the beginning of a fruitful relationship.

Kind regards,

Sometimes you just need something to protect yourself with.


From: Pentagonal Armaments
To: Captain Henry Argyle, Contract Relations, SternGuard
Subject: Body Armor Technology

Dear Captain Argyle,

Currently, on the market there are four design-types of body armor.

The first and oldest so far is "Dauntless", but almost no nations or users can obtain that, and it's also as expensive as some cars.

The second is ESAPI, which has been around since 2008, and has made limited advancements despite new materials and technologies coming out.

The third is designs based on the "Dragon Scale" pattern. We accidentally adopted one of these designs from a trusted ally years ago and had horrible luck with it, including many many problems. The maker of Dauntless warned others about using "Dragon-Scale" and many of our brave soldiers died wearing this pattern as well.

Our own pattern is the last pattern designed so far, and while our millions of soldiers and billions in R&D have found it to be better than all options except Dauntless, we weren't able to easily or clearly do so.

Recently we stumbled upon two large testing documents from another nation, which means we can prove that "Dragon Scale" and armors based on it, are completely unsuitable for any soldier. We have the research of three different highly respected nations, and our own hard research to back it up.

Considering all of this, would your firm be interested in being sponsored to test and inspect the armor? We will pay for the armor, the testing materials, and wages for testers; but then you are free to make up your own mind and provide the testers yourself. Once tests are concluded, if you think the armor is suitable, we will sponsor your company for marketing purposes and give you a discount on the armor.

Please get back to us with your thoughts.

May your offspring and years be as many as your heart desires, Pentagonal Armaments

I'm surprised too, maybe it's a sign things are looking up.

RE: Combat Contract to the Sultanate of Sharifistan against Danistarabian

To whom it may concern,

Thank you for your enquiry to SternGuard for contracted combat services to your nation.

We are happy to oblige your contract offer for the deployment of ~5,000 combat and combat support personnel against Danistarabian forces and operatives. SternGuard will will initially deploy a 50 man HQ and recce team in order to establish an initial base of forward operations, evaluate areas for a semi-permanent forward operating base for combat and combat support personnel, and to engage with a representative of your country's military in overall command of operations against Danistarabian. The latter is extremely important to prevent Green-on-Blue casualties and will allow SternGuard to adapt its rules of engagement to better suit the overall objective sought by Sharifistan.

Once these initial steps have been achieved, SternGuard will ascertain which assets and how many need to be deployed in order to accomplish the mission. %,000as stated is a good benchmark for us to work with and is a conservative estimate for an escalation of kinetic operations. SternGuard does not envisage the deployment number to rise above 5,000. With the concept of operations detailed by yourselves to amount to covert operations, SternGuard will require a local airport (or space cleared to erect a temporary one) in order for these operations to be conducted. The deployment of overt forces requires airframes and fixed wing loiter aircraft from COIN ops and intelligence reconnaissance in order to achieve best rests. Covert teams will require helo deployment an extraction - all of this will be provided by SternGuard as per the contract. We do not anticipate the use of armour or fast air assets in this combat theatre. Assuming airbase space is unviable then SternGuard will establish an area for the FOB airbase in Danistarabian and subcontract engineers to build it following a clearing of the area by SternGuard combat operatives.

COIN Ops are exceptionally expensive and time consuming operations to conduct, although attrition rates tend to be low. With this in mind, SternGuard is happy to renegotiate for a contract extending beyond 6 months should it be necessary to do so in order to achieve your nation's military aims.

From: Pentagonal Armaments
To: Captain Henry Argyle, Contract Relations, SternGuard
Subject: Body Armor Technology

Dear Captain Argyle,

Currently, on the market there are four design-types of body armor.

The first and oldest so far is "Dauntless", but almost no nations or users can obtain that, and it's also as expensive as some cars.

The second is ESAPI, which has been around since 2008, and has made limited advancements despite new materials and technologies coming out.

The third is designs based on the "Dragon Scale" pattern. We accidentally adopted one of these designs from a trusted ally years ago and had horrible luck with it, including many many problems. The maker of Dauntless warned others about using "Dragon-Scale" and many of our brave soldiers died wearing this pattern as well.

Our own pattern is the last pattern designed so far, and while our millions of soldiers and billions in R&D have found it to be better than all options except Dauntless, we weren't able to easily or clearly do so.

Recently we stumbled upon two large testing documents from another nation, which means we can prove that "Dragon Scale" and armors based on it, are completely unsuitable for any soldier. We have the research of three different highly respected nations, and our own hard research to back it up.

Considering all of this, would your firm be interested in being sponsored to test and inspect the armor? We will pay for the armor, the testing materials, and wages for testers; but then you are free to make up your own mind and provide the testers yourself. Once tests are concluded, if you think the armor is suitable, we will sponsor your company for marketing purposes and give you a discount on the armor.

Please get back to us with your thoughts.

RE: Contract to Pentagonal Armaments RE Body Armour Technology

To whom it may concern,

Thank you for your enquiry to SternGuard for contracted services to your nation reference body armour R&D and testing.

We are happy to oblige your contract offer, and it is uncommon to be requested and trusted for such an endeavour.

It is worthy of mention that SternGuard does not use Dauntless Armour as found on the Lyran Arms storefront due to sanctions imposed upon it by the Holy Empire of Stevid, within which our company is based though not affiliated with. Many nations use Dauntless, but it is in our experience that whilst the protect it provides is superb when looking at specifications for dealing with different rounds - the overall weight of the body armour is almost 20kg at third tier and of comparative weight with other contemporary armour in the lower tiers bar Tier 1. For dismounted combat operations by light role infantry, this level of protection (Tier 3) with the additional weight does not allow for effective fire-and-manoeuvre. The use of 'ultra light weight' dauntless in dismounted infantry operations is therefore subjective based on what one wants to achieve against offsets the risks to the soldier. Dauntless may be a perceived gold standard, but is by no means perfect. Furthermore, the armour protects for debilitating injuries that amount to internal organ damage or death - it does not allow the wearing to continue fighting when struck as the force of being shot will generally incapacitate wearers. This is the generally same for all ballistic armour of modern militaries.

SternGuard uses lightweight ECBA in most combat deployments that are not frontline kinetic, as enhanced protection is not necessary and it provides excellent protection from fragmentation bursts from indirect fire should the enemy get to close to established positions. In kinetic frontline environments, SternGuard operatives use Enhanced Virtus armour, which also incorporates better loadbearing abilities for troops moving personnel kit and equipment to harbour or hard standing areas. It uses similar technology to ESAPI plates and provides effective protection to 5.56mm rounds at section engagement distance of 100m-200m. It is modular and individual plates can be added or removed as mission requirements change. In comparison, there is little information regarding Dauntless armour, as a complete package, to offer better comforts to wearers in terms of loadbearing and other operational kit - those redevelopments are left to the home nation to develop. For a marginal reduction of protection when compared to Dauntless Tier-2 at a similar weight and a fraction of the cost, off-the-shelf modern armour need not be scoffed at. Dauntless rightly has a good reputation, but we at SternGuard suspect your own domestically developed armour system will be more than adequate.

Therefore, SternGuard is happy to conduct tests on the armour in line with your requests. Certain elements will require subcontracting technical specialists. With this in mind, advisors and observers from your company may be beneficial to oversea or instruct, as the specifics of body armour usually amount to sensitive or secret information. A sizeable deployment of operatives has been authorised o conduct COIN ops as part of another contract. If SternGuard deems the risks to be manageable following comprehensive testing, we are happy to deploy with this armour as a final trial.

Kind regards,


Captain Henry Argyle

SternGuard
“Duty bound to high risks”

PRESS RELEASE - 21 Dec



Guild Membership

SternGuard is happy to belatedly announce its entrance into the NS Private Military Contractors Guild. To say that this is a tremendous honour cannot and should not be understated because not only was our company accepted into the Guild, we were invited!

It is a testament to the hard work and effort put in by all our staff and operators to deliver the finest security and defence contracts money can buy. That the efforts of our company do not go unnoticed beyond our customers looking for our services. The opinion of our brothers in arms that put their lives and reputation on the line is just as important to us. Not only does this open up our availability to a larger market of prospective clients, it has allowed SternGuard to participate in joint security operations across the world and extended multi-verse, the likes of which we probably would never have had access to beforehand.

SternGuard wishes to pass its gratitude to not only the guild, but also our clients for the incredible feedback, and of course our staff and operators.


Deployment to Independent Hitmen

The recent deep state file leaks in Independent Hitmen have rocked the nation, and the domestic stresses are now at boiling point. The mass deployment of police and even military assets are troubling for all of us looking in to what is the closest ally of the Holy Empire. SternGuard’s arm’s length association with the Empire has always been fruitful and we are pleases to inform our members and shareholders that SternGuard has been selected to provide full spectrum support to the beleaguered state of Independent Hitmen.

This will technically consist of a combat deployment and will include communications, SIGINT and frontline combat support if necessary, but the primary method of operations will be in security details. This will be in supplement to the national police and national guard of IH and will be no means supplant those institutions nor the policies and practices they adhere to – and SternGuard shall do the same.

The deployment is to ensure that public outcry and backlash to this shocking revelation of deep rooted corruption to not spill over into violence and outright civil strife. The initial deployment is of 5,000 staff and operators with kit, equipment, armour, and aircraft, with a projected deployment length of up to four years.


Deployment to Northern Liberated America

With the designation of Locke and Keye organisation, and subsidiaries, as a terrorist organisation by Mokastanna, the Holy Empire of Stevid has followed suit in reneging support for the corporation but stopping short of declaring them terrorists. However, most of their operations have cease in Stevid and the Serious Organised Crime Agency has begun a full financial investigation. This has meant that the L&K contract (subcontracted to Rakatovi-Birat Trade Company) is now no longer extant and a serious situation has developed in a territory of the Holy Empire that has recently boiled over with public violence and organised crime lord militants. The danger is that even though L&K businesses were partly the cause of the strife, the whole territory has been unstable for years and now threats to break out into conflict once again.
SternGuard has been contracted by the Imperial Government jointly with the provincial government of North Liberated America, to take the place of L&K/RBTC. The deployment may become quite kinetic, but a different tact will be taken to that of our predecessors in the area.

This will be a community driven effort to win hearts and minds, with actual military-grade operators seldom seen and only to be utilised as a reactive measure to violence. SternGuard is committed to providing our clients the safety and security they desire without inflaming local tensions.


Football World Cup and Baptism of Fire and Ice

The PMC Guild has been selected to provide civil security measures to the WC and BoFI this year, and among the Guild corporations selected include SternGuard. SternGuard will provide perimeter and site security, together with partner Guild agencies, in order to deliver unparalleled safety to the games.

The enjoyment of fans at these events is predicated on the behind the scenes work by government and private officials. This includes safety, which should be omnipresent and taken for granted, but nonetheless measured and of the utmost professionalism. SternGuard, and other Guild members who are proactively taking part in the security operation, are committed to providing the service the hosts desire.

SternGuard wishes all competitors and their respective fans the best of luck!
