|Raid on the Oasis EDF Barracks|
|Sides||Earth Defense Force|
|Location||Oasis EDF Barracks, Oasis Sector, Mars|
|Outcome||Red Faction Victory. EDF forces and compound destroyed. Marauders dead.|
The Raid on the Oasis EDF Barracks was an attack on an Earth Defense Force facility in the sector of Oasis, the Oasis EDF Barracks, by seperate and hostile forces of the Red Faction and Marauders. The action took place in the Battle of Oasis during the Second Martian Revolution, and resulted in the death of all EDF personnel present and the destruction of a greater part of the site.
The enagement commenced when a large Red Faction insurgent force assaulted the facilities well-defended front entrance. The EDF reinforcements then arrived behind the Red Faction force, entrapping them. They were dealt with, but upon the Red Faction pushing forward into the compound towards the barracks proper another force belonging to Marauders materialized. They blasted through the walls towards the rear of the facility, setting off a chain of explosions with the destruction of several fuel tanks and overruning the hapless EDF from behind. The battle was then settled by what remained of the Red Faction.
The Marauder surpise attack, not only designed to catch both forces unawares, was evidently much better planned than the Red Faction assault.
