Image capture taken from Fēngzhēng-pattern reconnaissance UAV over the Novvy Bangkok strip moments prior to hostilities commencing.
Yu Jing's Hóng Biāo Joint Taskforce can be seen moving to their starting positions for the operation, ready to secure stolen medical supplies being distributed from the Strip.
Ariadan strike force elements are not yet visible, but camouflaged units are presumed to have deployed in advance, representing an illegal encroachment on Yu Jing's operations in the area.
Image capture taken from Fēngzhēng-pattern reconnaissance UAV over the Novvy Bangkok strip shows Lieutenant Chan Qi advancing into the area of operations, accompanied by a "Shadowshooter" limited combat AI that has been subverted by an unknown Hóng Biāo hacker.
This Shadowshooter appears non-standard compared to models known to be in the AO at the time. Further investigation into this matter is pending.
Image capture taken from Fēngzhēng-pattern reconnaissance UAV over the Novvy Bangkok strip shows the mercenary sniper Major Lunah engaging an Ariadnan "Tank Hunter".
The Major proved her value to the Joint Taskforce in this mission- eliminating an operator from the elite Kazak Spetznas division, as well as the Tank Hunter seen in this still image.
Although eventually incapacitated by speculative grenade fire from an unorthodox Merovingian airborne unit, the Major was successfully evacuated to a Yu Jing medical facility, where she is currently recovering from her injuries.

Image capture mined from Paradise Hotel security camera footage shows Lieutenant Chan Qi advancing to secure the AO after Taskforce units recovered the majority of the stolen supplies.
This still was taken shortly before the Lieutenant was rendered combat ineffective in an exchange of fire with an enemy-controlled Shadowshooter unit positioned behind the food stall to her right.
Note also the battle damage sustained from a previous exchange of fire with the Tank Hunter unit.
Lt Qi was recovered alive, but unconscious, and has been recommended for a commendation for courage under fire.
