|Raid on the Oasis EDF Barracks|
|Sides||Earth Defence Force|
|Location||Oasis EDF Barracks, Oasis Sector, Mars|
|Outcome||Red Faction Victory. EDF forces and compound destroyed. Marauders dead.|
Background[edit | edit source]
The engagement commences when a large Red Faction insurgent force assaults the facilities well-defended front entrance. The EDF reinforcements then arrive behind the Red Faction force, entrapping them. They are dealt with, but upon the Red Faction pushing forward into the compound towards the barracks proper another force belonging to Marauders materialise. They blast through the walls towards the rear of the facility, setting off a chain of explosions with the destruction of several fuel tanks and overrunning the hapless EDF from behind. The battle is then settled by what remains of the Red Faction.
The Marauder surprise attack, not only designed to catch both forces unawares, is evidently much better planned than the Red Faction assault.
