Disturbing Reports

+++++Intercepted Communication #Planet Jeriko Reach#+++++

+++Patrol Report #DELETED#+++

Colonel #DELETED#,
I have disturbing findings to report from the patrol into the equatorial belt, lead by Cpl Drake. They ran into more than just the expected Eldar Pirates, who were suspected of holding one of the Mining Guilds men in an abandoned tropical zone. This resulted in the possible death of at least one Guardsman, and the Guilder. There are also disturbing reports of troopers suffering inexplicable physical problems leading to the jailing of one Guardsman. We have limited Pict scans from the area, due to the aggressive nature of the local flora and fauna to the machine spirits on the equipment supplied #DELETED#.

From the outset there are inconclusive scans of two quicksilver mutants who over ran the pirate position in the first moments of the engagement. The Eldar were ripped to pieces before they could get a single shot off. The creatures identified as possible #DELETED# and were so fast that they caused the patrol severe difficulties to deal with at all. Unfortunately the Pict scans show #DELETED#; however the mutants caused enough of a distraction and allowed the tribesmen following time to get into favourable positions. From the ensuing fire fight several Guardsmen were knocked off their feet, and only the swift actions of the medic saved the patrol from destruction by healing Cpl Drake and several other members of the team.

Cpl Drake is to be commended for taking control of the situation, after his wounding. In decisively taking the fight to the enemy, enough casualties were caused to force the mutants to retreat. It appears they were broken after concentrated fire from the entire patrol and are suspected to be #DELETED#. No remains of the #DELETED# were found after the action, unfortunately. However one tribesman was captured and is currently imprisoned, and guarded by sanctioned Psykers along with the guardsman who suffered mysterious effects during the mission.

My Lord, I believe this has to be of interest to you. Your knowledge of the splinter fleets can help us +++Transmission Lost. Unknown cause+++ pict files are currently being re-built
