38 Years old, salt-and-pepper hair and a military-standard trimmed mustache and hair too short to grab. Sturdily built, uniform fits well, and when on duty he carries a sidearm on a vest with handcuffs, but noticeably no less-lethal weapons.
Born Abram Jenkins, Tank was the temporary alias he chose after faking his death and fleeing from Boeing with a lot of stolen money and equipment. He settled on Alan Joseph Tanknouse - or AJ - on 2034-03-07 while becoming CEO of CAF, and on the way to meeting with John Lawrence.
He was a shift commander in Boeing internal security, formerly worked in a PSD in Kharagpur, Paschim Medinipur, India. 6 years USMC, 4 years Aegis private security, 7 years Boeing private security, no bullshit, no alcohol, no tobacco, no kids. At this point, he's mostly in it because he gets plenty of money and plenty of time to read. Sometimes talks about retiring to Dakota to see if he can kill a moose before it kills him. Camps the police blotter the way a teenager follows a band.
In Afghanistan it was Deke and me against the world. I was getting in a year before he got out, but we saved each others lives more times than I can count. He had an uncanny ability to read the situation and the motivations behind the enemy actions and figuring out how to solve the problem that they represented. That's why I called him last week. I knew his daughter it disappeared years ago, and the kid had a rough patch when his wife died. So imagine my surprise when someone looking a lot like his daughter showed up in police surveillance footage at a seedy horse stable and a gun range a little ways out of Sudbury where I was stationed.
...Much has happened in the first days of March.

|2034-03-15 1805EDT Mountain Assault||The HC² and 288 HC assault on the mountain was costly, even for super-soldiers with a slowest running speed of 40km/h. 13 died on the way up, caught by heavy machine gun fire, mortar shells, and various robotic attackers. This left 275 to assault the base. The four HC2 showed their extraordinary ca|
