DA3: DSN Ranger (CAT16)
MILPO-CAT16 Ranger - Duggonian Space Navy special forces snow team Dog sled with three pups (Huey Dewey and Louie). Robotic companion – DSN Spider Bot Support Unit 9216 – Nickname “Legs”
About this creation


Hi all, this build is for the game Decisive Action 3, for one of the military categories, so if you appreciate the build feel free to toss me a like and raise my military power!





Mission 00-24-9b brief:

Incursion into the northern wastes of Catland successful. Key objective achieved – communication tower bug implanted. DSN intelligence services now have access to all Catland data feeds.
Mission as follows:

Ranger traverse island to comm installation in dog sled.


Legs (Spider Bot Support Unit 9216) climbs local flora and shoots low power laser pointer at ground target.


Cat guard immediately chases laser target.


Ranger (name redacted) gently tranquilizes guard.


Ranger climbs comm array stanchion to place bug.


Bug in place.


Explosives planted at roof entrance to confuse enemy into thinking entry was primary objective. Analysts consider it unlikely the bug will be noticed.


>>Post war comment added to file: “In post-war analysis of the operation footage, techs found that Catland had a second smaller cat sentry which was aware of the entire operation. It is unknown if Catland purposefully allowed the DSN to spy on accurate intelligence or if they used the knowledge to feed the DSN spurious data.”
>> End comment.




Ranger Creed (loosely based on the theme song to the genius animated show “Captain Planet”:

---------

For the DSN!
Under Fire!
Through Storm!
And Rain!
With Courage!

Go Rangers!

With the combined power of animal and robotic companions!

The Ranger is no hero,
The Ranger’s profile is zero,
DSN military might magnified,
Fighting on the society’s side

The Ranger is no hero,
The Ranger’s profile is zero,
Going where no one else will,
In first to loot and plunder

"You'll pay for this HIDDEN!"

(chanting)
We're the Rangers,
You can be one too!
'Cause saving our planet is the thing to do,
Evil and pollution is not the way,
Hear what the DSN has to say:

"THE RANGERS ARE COMING!!"

--------




Proof it fits.

The Specs if you’re curious:

CATEGORY 16- Ranger

Whether scouting trails, observing the enemy, or conducting sabotage deep in enemy territory, the Ranger provides an out-sized value to the military they serve. Trained in the arts of unconventional and asymmetric warfare, the Ranger can strike undetected and disappear before the enemy can muster a defense. The Ranger typically acts alone, but a small team working together is enough to stop an army in its tracks.


1. Mobility through rough terrain is key to a ranger's effectiveness. You must build a land vehicle or mount no longer than 12 studs, nor wider than 8 studs. It must be capable of fitting a single complete minifigure. It must have a visually identifiable means of propulsion.

FAQ: There is no thematic limitation for this build. It could be any sort of vehicle, animal, or robot, (or other thing), so long as if meets those criteria. Wheels, legs, treads, chainsaw hands, anything goes as long as it provides movement by applying friction to the ground! Official LEGO figurines, such as horses, dinosaurs, and Tauntauns are forbidden for this spec, no matter how nice you make their saddle- this is a building challenge, not a decorating one!

2. Rangers live a lonely life, and everyone needs a friend. Build a non-humanoid companion of no less than ten pieces and include a picture of it with your ranger. Give it a proper name in the write-up. This build cannot double as the first spec. Please include a breakdown shot allowing the DAS to count your pieces.

FAQ: Similar to the first FAQ, AI drones, and robots, and animals, and all that can be built- just nothing shaped like Man. They cannot be used as the first spec, no matter how deep your relationship with horses may be, your ranger gets a separate friend. They can ride along if you can fit them, though.

3. Rangers are a jack of all trades within your military. Create the two following scenes to include as separate mocs for this category. They do not have to include the vehicle or companion, they only have to include your ranger figure.

Your Ranger “silencing” an enemy sentry. This may be a second minifigure, or a brickbuilt creation such as a robot or a security system.

Your Ranger planting an explosive. This scene requires some sort of objective to be destroyed such as a vehicle, supplies, a bridge, etc. Also a bomb, of course.

FAQ: Do try to make them look nice.

4. Write a minimum 100 word story, poem, creed or song to go with your Ranger in addition to your explanatory write-up.

FAQ: Add some sort of title or separation so the DAS knows where your description ends and this begins. I like limericks.

Quoting P. Andrei Great, loving the sled, very nice idea for this category. And an excellent diorama to support it. I'd be careful though, you might realize some day your ranger is gone and the only evidence is a vanishing round black shape in the sky.
Haha, yeah the cats are not to be messed with. Thanks P!
