Heavy Gear Blitz! Terra Nova Gambit - The War for Terra Nova Book 2

Watermarked PDF

"What's left to do?" Sergeant Major James Anders asked his commander in the decrepit old Jaguar. Anders knew it was only a matter of time before the end would come for the land fleet they had been guarding. The fleet officer had told the gear sections to retreat once the order was given. 

"Not long, son. They'll give us the word," Colonel Arlens replied. At seventy nine cycles, the grizzled War of the Alliance veteran was nearly the oldest member in the provisional regiment. The unit had been thrown together at the last minute to defend the  Protectorate from the approaching invaders. None of the pilots on the field were younger than fifty cycles and most were near the colonel's age. Sergeant Major James found himself on the younger end of the spectrum, but no less committed to the cause.

The WFN Defiance, an aging carrier class landship, groaned in protest at the relentless attacks from the CEF forces in the canyon. The massive carrier inched past the gears engaged in the hopeless fighting. Anders could hear the strain of the landship's repulsor magnetic system echoing throughout the canyon's walls. At that moment, Sergeant James Anders knew what he always understood when he volunteered for the mission. There would not be any escape. Only the honor of dying next to his fellow soldiers.

In the face of overwhelming odds and desperation, Maderas Betomas, commander of the Defiance, issued his final order, setting the canyon ablaze in a nuclear holocaust.

In the first days of the Second Invasion, Terra Nova was gripped in desperate fighting in multiple fronts; however, nowhere were the battles fiercer than in the Barrington Basin. Terra Nova Gambit - The War for Terra Nova Book 2 includes:

  • Background Information on the CEF's Utopian Colonial Corp Allies.
  • Utopian Uniforms, Ranks, Insignia, and Equipment
  • Technical Data on the Armiger Auto Control Suit and the N-KIDU Autos
  • Technical Data on the refitted HC-3 Command and Reconnaissance Vehicle
  • Rules for fielding Utopian Colonial Corp Armies and the new CEF HC-3 Combat Group.
  • New Regiments of Note for the CEF, Utopia, and Black Talon
  • Advanced League and Campaign rules.
  • Campaign Scenarios for the Barrington, Space, and the Badlands Fronts
  • Discover the fate of Colonel Arthur and the Port Arthur Korps
  • Datacards for each of the vehicles presented in the books.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
