Mercenary Captain Max Masterson leads his unit, the Fire Masters, against a General Motors factory complex on Salem. The defenders, a battalion of Harlock's Warriors, have been transferred to the other side of the planet, and Masterson expects the infantry and light vehicles of the corporate security to be no match for his BattleMech force. However, concealed gun emplacements ambush the Fire Masters and artillery fire forces them to retreat with the loss of (at least) a Phoenix Hawk and, it is implied, also Masterson's Marauder.
