#SitRep  Operation #Preamble  - #RIP18FiftyFive  

"Picture abhi baaki hai mere dost!"

*TL;DR: 1.6 Billion MU captured; 23 fields; 0 VRLA and 0 SBULA used! We Tried, We Fell, We Stood-Up, We Conquered! *

@18fiftyfive was an integral part of the Resistance India family. He was a good friend to the resistance family. He lost his life at a very young age last year in March. This OP is a small way of paying our respects to him! You live on in our memories mate! May your Soul Rest in Peace! 

Planning:

The idea behind this Op was like that of any other Op generally planned. A group of friends, which is now more like a family, tired of doing the same old usual boring stuff wanted to do something big! Something unusual! Something crazy! And this crazy was supposed to be The Beginning of a new trend for Resistance India. Many anchors were discussed, many transfers and travelers looked into and finally was born Operation #Preamble.

Agents from the anchor cities and the once which held the current existing blocks were contacted, group formed and feasibility of the operation was discussed. Excitement and enthusiasm on an all time high after a long time, everyone wanted this op to succeed! After a lot of deliberation and checking keys and transfers and travelers, the anchors were fixed as Mumbai, Rajahmundry and Erode; Mumbai and erode forming the base link and layers coming in from Rajahmundry.

The Fall:

One week before the D-day, crosses were left to decay, people were contacted for the same, and the new blocks looked into for take downs and decays. DAKC(the mumbai anchor) was newly enlightened. This led to multiple discussions regarding the usability of the anchor! 

A Resistance link between 2 remote portals, which was supposed to have decayed, didn’t. The portals were recharged by someone oblivious to the OP. One end of the link was dangerous to go to due to heavy rains and bad roads, the other end was considerably remote! Discussions of postponing the OP to the following weekend started and then shot down due to Rajahmundry agents not being available. More options looked into! 

Drama, Politics, Love-Hate relations! This OP saw it all! So much so that the Op was called off on the Thursday! 

We Conquered! 

Big props to the #SecretWarriors  for all the moral support given to the team and the numerous people who constantly pinged the planning team for actually getting the OP done, that we are writing this report today! It didn’t matter how long the fields lasted or whether they crossed the Checkpoint. All we cared about was to actually get the fields up! *AND WE DID IT! * But remember, This Is Just The Beginning! ;) 

Thanks to all the agents on ground who believed in the OP and helped see this OP through! Without agents on ground, no plans can ever become a reality! You guys are the real heroes! Thank you one and all! 

Base link was made from Erode to Mumbai by agent @3ngineer with the help of @SanpoKenjuu and then the layer were completed from RJY, effortlessly! A last minute scare by the Enlightened agent in Erode almost cost us the fields not crossing the checkpoint! In the end, the anchor portal was jarvised after the checkpoint by the ENL. The fields ghosted for 2 checkpoints after that and were finally down later on sunday afternoon!

Special Mentions:
There were a few people who probably deserve a special mention for going that extra mile: 

Due to issues at the Mumbai anchor, the base was now to go in from Erode to Mumbai. SanpoKenjuu (Ajay Balakrishnan) from Bangalore volunteered to go for a 6 hour long journey to just take a key from Bangalore to Erode so as to see this Op through! 

Pali takedown: It is not easy to travel to an anchor out of the way with bad roads and low connectivity! Thank you @TheMonya(Manoj Dhaware) for traveling to the portal and helping see this OP through! 

Mandya:@kmk7(Gowtham Hegde) volunteered to take down some of the last minute links made by a travelling ENL who blocked us while we didn’t have a back up there in such cases!

Chennai: Last minute blockers by @Trinetra(Prashanth Raju) which literally cost us the Op were also promptly jarvised by him at the same moment! Thanks mate! 

Sajjangad: Another last minute block, another crazy volunteer! Thank you for traveling last minute for those blocks @Amster007(Amar Gayakwad)

Belarshah:@princebabuu traveled to Nagpur for a takedown which was finally not needed. But thank you agent for putting in the time and effort! 

Moral Support: This list is endless, has no bounds(be it history or geography) and anonymous. Thank you so much everyone who stood by the team and made sure that the OP happened! There are some people who I can’t thank enough here. No words can do justice there! But well the OP would have never happened had it not been for the #SecretWarriors  (You guys know who you are!)

Intel:@RiftInTime(Jamie Gainsford) : Thank for all your help with the intel and overwatch. I hope you ended up learning some crazy Indian names while you were at it! ;) 

Video: Thank you Andreas Hetz  for making the amazing YouTube clip(https://youtu.be/7sVORXz44Qo)  for this project!
