Continuing with the efforts to train the Haqqislamite military against remotes. Interventor Katerina arrives firs to the field of battle and deploys her troops. Three guys that look like remote operators deploy hunkered down in the building just past where she has her troops deployed. Its a little suspicious that they aren’t back at HQ but they look the part and seem to have the codes for clearance. The Haqq troops are deployed prone on roof tops and in buildings all across the field some are prone behind crates with the exception of the shiab remote who has a line of fire all they way down the street. Katerina orders zoe to coordinate an advance with piwell the tsyklon and moran. The moran contines to move up to get a koala near the shiab and drops in to suppression fire with pi well while the tsyklon climbs the building to acquire a firing position. A Ghazi comes flying around the corner where the shiab is takes a koala and much fire and dies but not before chain rifling the moran. Another Ghazi comes flying out and dies to concentrated fire. Several members of the Haqq forces move closer to the action while still staying on roof tops or in buildings and then drop into suppresive fire. The Lasiq disables the tsyklon and tries to take out the reaktion zond and dies in the effort.
Katerina orders everyone still in their original positions to coordinate their efforts in moving up but staying in zone 1. The lunokhod is sent to take out the shiab as it gets close Katerina uses it’s repeater to immobilize the shiab and then the lunokhod rounds the corner and puts 2 shotgun blasts into it at pointblank range disabling it for the remainder of the combat. The lunokhods operator gets cocky and advances on the small fortification of haqq forces manages to take out a ghazi but ends up being disabled by the others chain rifle and then destroyed by the viral round from the lasiq. The last Ghazi moves out and is mowed down by the reaktion zond. the lasiq tries to kill the vertigo zond but its a bit to far for the rifle and the veritgo zonds missiles do him in.
Katerina calls in the drop troops the tomcat engineer drops in by the enemy hvt to secure it and remove the ghulam. The zondcat drops into zone 2. The meteor zond tries dropping into zone of control of the guys prone on the roof but the muyib spec op hacker messes with its drop trajectory and it scatters over by the tomcat. A ragik comes in off of the side and gets taken out by the lone aguacile guarding that side. The Haqq forces manage to hold their closest zone but nomad forces claim the other two zones and the enemy hvt for the win.
