SIZE: 2 source engagements; Solanae Sphere aerial drones (9), Voth Mecha (5 + 1 Inquisitor) and support units (26)
ACTIVITY: re-taking of previous held zone, 400m ‘north’ of transport pad.
ASSESMENT: We were overwhelmed from the moment we entered the zone. While our support troops were engaged in the ‘CITY, our 3-man attempt to hold this position became almost unattainable. We suffered multiple casualties, but managed to hold until the enemy force withdrew to the OMEGA silos to support VOTH engineers.
Unusually high concentrations of ‘Swarmer’s’ slowed our progress. They also appear to have the ability to ‘merge’ with buildings and can fire their weapons transphasically. We’re unable to hit them. While they engaged both Alliance and Voth troops, they slowed our progress enough to prevent us from reaching our objectives.
The Voth Mecha deployment was the largest we’ve seen to date. While Voth armor remains a ‘joke’ against prepared defenders, the numbers in this engagement indicates they are ‘stepping up’ deployment.
The immediate deployment of STA weaponry, either in the form of defensive drones, or traditional man-portable missiles. I’ll pay.
Add signage to the command center above each of the doors. Seriously. Give me a roll of silver duct-tape and a magic marker, and I will solve the problem for you.
Have engineering find out why our armor sticks to the exit doors. Keep having to go back to ‘peel’ off members of my team who get stuck.
