Showcase| Airbase Capture
Not exactly a story update, but we're heading back to the deserts of Malo as the "Invasion" of Malo progresses into Phase 2 of Operation Desert Mace.
Early the next day after Follvirkeland forces arrived in Malo, Operation Desert Mace sprang into Phase 2. The Militants had been using an old Airstrip that had been left over from the Great Adonian War for their own purposes. This Airstrip will prove vital for Follvirkeland to be able to transport more resources into the area efficiently.
Elements of the 63rd Infantry were already en route to the base as the sun began to climb high. Satellite imagery of the base showed supportive structures already existing. Command wondered what the militants were doing with the base, but that info will be found out in due time. Scans showed minimal resistance. Odd but lucky. the 63rd will have an easy time clearing it out.
Before the Infantry would land at the base, UT-37s would diliver strike packages on key targets within the base. An Ammunition dump and the main barracks. This preemptive strike would decimate the enemy force before troops on the ground were engaged.
The Air Force took pride in being Surgical with their ordinance.
Quickly following the Air Strikes, Ghosts arrived on scene to offload the Infantry. The 63rd created a perimeter around the base as Ghosts carrying Rangers of the 35th flew to the heart. The base's Control Tower. Take that and the Strip is captured.
As the barracks burned, the 35th begins their insertion by repelling down onto the tarmac just outside the Tower. Militants would be no match for Trained Rangers.
With Ghosts circling overhead and slight casualties, the Airstrip was secured. The F.N.S. Cathleen off the coast were given the all clear to send in additional backup to reinforce the base.
To make preparations to welcome the first of Follvirkeland's UT-130s.
Follvirkeland now has a strong presence in Malo.
This is just the beginning of Follvirkeland's operation to eradicate the Militants, so there will more more of these updates. In the meantime, hope you enjoyed the special effects graciously donated by Michael Bay himself.
Next up you get another money shot of the city of Hinali, Follvirkeland.
