The Aurelian troops set up defensive positions along a wall dug out.
The soldiers waited in silence
Lt. Connix: "Load your weapons, we're heading to Gate 18."
Crewmen: "Yes, ma'am."
Rear Admiral Hart, Commodore Catherine Haskal, and Lieutenant Colonel Benjamin O'Reilly stood at the holotable in the control room.
Hart: "They'll come for gates 18 and 27, those are the least defended."
Haskal: "I agree."
O'Reilly: "Gate 27 is the weakest, but they're further away."
Major Jack Traviss walked up
Traviss: "Gate 18 is ready, I'll be returning there now."
Trooper: "Incoming! Hold your fire until they're closer, for maximum effect!"
After a few seconds,
Trooper: "NOW! FIRE!"
The Aurelians opened fire, cutting several GI troopers down.
A GI trooper threw a grenade, which landed in front of the wall.
The grenade exploded, hurling Aurelians and sand everywhere, but the Aurelians kept firing.
An Aurelian cut down a few GIs with a machine gun.
GI in background: "Sir, we must retreat!"
GI officer: "All forces retreat!"
But before they could retreat, a hovertank fired a shell right at them, killing them.
A few Aurelian officers hopped the wall, and stared out at the bodies of the fallen GIs.
Aurelian NCO: "Sir, Gate 27 is under heavy attack."
He handed the walky-talky to Matt Wyatt.
Radio: "This is Lieutenant Harris, SAS, we're being overrun!"
Wyatt: "Lets move, hurry!"
At Gate 27, Aurelian troops were being killed left and right, there were only a few left.
Suddenly an Aurelian hovertank appeared, along with a platoon of Aurelians.
Aurelian NCO on the tank: "FOR AURELIA, CHARGE!"
The Aurelians fired, outflanking the GI, and killing several.
The Aurelians quickly surrounded the GIs.
Wyatt: "We'll accept your surrender now."
GI Officer: "Dammit..."
Nice entry! Yeah, it's really good to see an actual battle! We've been missing those recently! I loved seeing Brass, that was a nice touch. This writing for the fighting could use some work, but on the whole, very nice! Good luck in the GC!
