Pakngein was boring, at least as far as Don Yuan was concerned. The Main Strip just had more of the good stuff: stabbing, robbing, whoring and gambling. But after all there was money to be made at Pakngein. Some Commander Mustafa had assembled a defense team for one of the civic areas of Pakngein, apparently the CA planned a terror strike on said areas. The implications of this didn’t bother him or his companion Yuanina one bit, their objective was simple: When the shooting begins, jump down into the back of the enemy through the hull breach and kill any alien that moves. He readied his trusty shotgun as their shuttle approached the hull breach, a green light switches on, it’s go time.

Turn 1 (Naidek Shkin)
The CA assault begins with the Oznat storming forwards into the direction of the Kaplans and the Sekban. The Maakrep moves forward on the building she is standing on, to get into partial cover and a better attack vector. A Morat Vanguard follows the Oznat, but gets shot at by the Al’Hawwa Sniper, the Morat dodges with a crit and moves into cover behind a balustrade. The Maakrep reacts unfazed by the appearance of the Al’Hawwa and easily shoots her down, scoring two hits against which the Hawwa fails both her ARM rolls. The Oznat then charges onward into the eastern square, facing no enemy reactions. The Morat Vanguard moves from his current cover to partial cover behind the balustrade of the stairs of the Q-Building with the eastern Panoply. The Sogarat moves forward on the garage to get a better attack vector.

But arriving at the ground as he jumps from the Q-Building, he takes a blast from the boarding shotgun of the camouflaged FO Al’hawwa, the Rodok manages to score a hit on the Infiltrator, who goes unconscious. After this, the Rodok uses another two orders to super jump in a relatively straight line along the western pathway.
Turn 1 (Mustafa)

Don Yuan was still alive as the sound of conflict died down, he lost contact with Yuanina and didn’t make himself any hope that she might have made it. This did not sadden him, it was the way that Yuan Yuans live: Fast, dangerous and mostly dead before 30. He made two good kills (he did not think that the unmoving Slave Drone counted as a „real“ kill) and survived , good enough. But the civilians in the attacked area were freaking out. Apparently, even though they suffered great losses, the CA proved successful in their terror tactics. A message went through the Comms of the surviving members of Börü SDF, a message from Commander Mustafa: „This will not stand! This aggression against our civilians will not stand Inshallah!“
