Scrambling for positions, The Unslaughtered set up to keep their Longbow protected while the Stinger moves to act as a spotter.

A copse of woods along the attack route begins to become the major tactical obstacle for both sides to reckon with.

The Barnbuster's CO is first to confront the opposing commander's Hunchback.

The fire fight between the two Hunchbacks is intense. The Unslaughtered Battlemaster moves in to tip the scales, brushing with the Barnbusters Grasshopper.

But Capt. Tully in the Barnbusters Grasshopper has another target in mind.

The Barnbusters Hunchback is going out in a blaze of glory.

By this time, the Stinger's wide flank is a moot point.

The Barnbusters double down on taking out the Longbow

The Unslaughtered Hunchback and Battlemaster pull out of the thick copse and move to defend the Longbow.

The brawl is spreading damage across all units.

The Barnbusters Cataphract finally slogs through the forested thickets only to become the new target. Excessive damage will tip the mech frame over when the pilot loses control.

The downed Cataphract's folly is capitalized on by the Unslaughtered.

In the end, The Battlemaster gets too hot, causing a shutdown and has its leg destroyed in the ensuing fire storm. Following that, the Unsluaghtered CO's Hunchback is destroyed, which prompts the 2 remaining mechwarriors to surrender to the Barnbusters. It's a hard fought victory.

AAR, Buck's Barnbusters:

Dear Valued Employer,

    Pursuant to the combat action on August 11, 3059,

    Acting upon confirmed intelligence and spotter reports, Bucks Barnbusters engaged a previously identified terrorist cell and a previously undiscovered mech garage. Expecting minimal resistance, it was our intention to crush the cell outright.

    Upon entering the operational area with the Barnbuster’s heavy lance, 4 terrorist ‘Mechs were discovered to be guarding the garage, lead by a Battlemaster. Though this was far more resistance than expected, I personally gave the order to continue the assault.
   
    The terrorists were engaged, flanked, and successfully overcome, at the cost of two Barnbuster pilots. All mech assets were recovered, though an enemy Longbow was completely devastated and the remaining parts of a enemy Hunchback was left for scrap. The captured commander gave no intel of significance, and was freely returned to Magliss Spirit security forces.

Through further investigation, whatever support the terrorists were receiving took the loss of millions of Cbills worth of equipment quite poorly. Though we will continue to keep an eye on previously identified potential hostiles, it seems the support base for continued insurrection has been well eliminated.

Commanding Officer,
Tully MacAuliffe
