Astute class submarine, British Royal Navy


THE TARGET - Terramentals aim to steal a British Royal Navy submarine, to destroy oil wells in the North Sea, by way of drawing attention to the manifold oil discharges, and their unlawful detention, as legitimate conservation protestors.





Maximilian Mohune is known as Maxy to lady friends and Max or Mohune to his male counterparts. He was a pilot in the Royal Air Force (RAF) also serving in the elite Special Air Services (SAS).


Like 'Red,' Max has been a long time supporter of Greenpeace, Extinction Rebellion and Just Stop Oil, becoming more disillusioned as the years went by at the lack of action of successive governments, despite protest marches and the like. Noting the powerful speeches, suggestive of change, in actuality, were deceptions, designed to assuage the electorate mindful of global warming, to gain another term - for more of the same. Blah, blah, blah.


'Max' teams up with 'Red' and his other activist chums to peacefully protest in London, about the oil leaks in the North Sea - and lack of punitive disincentives. This touches a raw nerve, with some high-powered MPs and military officials, who have invested heavily in oil stocks. Hence, the slap on the wrist fines, that are woefully ineffective in preventing further investment in what is seen as a dangerous medium.


'Max' is arrested, and beaten up by the Metropolitan police in one of their vans. Then he was framed by Chief Constable Harry Holland (Dirty Harry) under direct orders from Nick (The Devil) Johnson. Dirty Harry is told to frame the activists, for assault and criminal damage. When in fact, all they were doing was exercising their civil rights in peaceful manner. The Met had deliberately damaged public property and reported injuries and personal attacks that did not occur.


He is convicted of assault and criminal damage, and sent to prison for 12 months, with reporting restrictions, and other measures to allow Dirty Harry to keep track of the previously law abiding group. The Government use anti-terrorist and other algorithms, linked to every agency in the UK they can think of, including Interpol and bank accounts, to monitor purchase patterns, effectively to monitor and control their lives. The corrupt civil servants did not want to be found out. They had to either bury this group, or put out a contract on them. Perhaps, a step too far.


When 'Max' is released from prison, he goes off the grid, with his fellow protestors. Toughened up by the experience, and realising just how corrupt the country has become - a virtual police state - he is pleased to help Jorges Dicaprio build a Predator HK, following the prison break from Northeye, near Bexhill and Hastings in Sussex.


Having helped the Cuban smuggler to build the Predator mini-sub, Jorges trains Max to be able to capture one of the Royal Navy's Astute submarines, as the HK's pilot.


Having had his life ruined by 'Dirty Harry' and 'The Devil,' 'Max' has nothing to lose, and all to gain. Like 'Red' and his Terramental allies, he aims to reveal the injustice, even if he has to bend the law, as he now understands, this is how the established political parties retain control. The rules of engagement just got changed. Max studies the Art of War, and learns his enemies ways, to use them to fight UK corruption, as per the UN's SDG 16 objectives. He is no longer a Law Abiding Citizen.


The Terramentals would become privateers, and fly the Jolly Roger; skull and crossbones, pirate flag.

In the John Storm series of ocean awareness adventures, extreme activists use their Predator HK to steal an Astute class submarine, belonging to the British Royal Navy. The anti global warming terrorists plan to steal US and Soviet submarines, as part of their agenda to prove the futility of all out thermonuclear annihilation. Using their own illegal, weapons against the perpetrators of what they see as crimes against humanity.


In this fictional John Storm adventure, the Astute submarine commandeered, develops radiation leaks, making the vessel dangerous to life in the ocean, and eventually, those submariners operating the vessel, adding to the list of complaints of the Terramentalists.
