Operation Order: Aerial Assault

A flyer's mobility and high speed makes it ideal for interdicting enemy troops. The craft swings round the flank of the enemy force, timing its arrival to coincide with the main attack. The sudden appearance of the aircraft and any troops it is transporting inevitably sows fear and confusion in the enemy ranks.

Dragoonian Artillery on Tulagik Major Island.

The initial assault launched on the Imperial airbase on Tulagik Minor turned out to be a disaster for the T'au forces. The raiding force of drones and Pathfinders were no match for the unexpected force of Brimlock Dragoonian Veterans station at the airbase. Supported by crews of Valkeries armed with dedicated and skilled pilots, the Dragoonian force made short work of the T'au raiders.

Only a few miles away the larger force of Vior'la forces had landed on Tulagik Major. The T'au force was equipped much better than their smaller raiding forces the Imperial Guard had encountered so far.......
