[color=#898989]Taken from "The Evolution of Capellan Tactics- A Study" [/color]

[color=#898989]"... In 3012 the still somewhat primitive Capellan forces attempted to raid New Home. The Garrison unit stationed there, the Australasian Royal Mechanised Division, was able to repel their assault with very few casualties, an embarrassing defeat for the Confederation. [/color]

[color=#898989]Studying their failure, the Capelleans picked out several mistakes they had made in their assault, First, they had neglected their scouting duties, Second, they lacked air support, and Third, their 'Mech forces were inferior in terms of professional ability. Learning from these lessons, the Capellans incorporated new tactics into their battleplan or their second raid. [/color]

[color=#898989]They launched this raid in 3020, having hired out most of the ARMD via proxy. Defending was, rather poetically, the 3rd Coy which had fought the Capellans off in 3012. The Capellan Forces jumped in with a single warship and dropped their forces, as they did last time, 50 kilometres from the spaceport. They landed the 3rd, 5th and 12th Mech Companies (detached) that had been created for this raid, and the 40th, 67th and 87th Armoured Brigades. They also launched several squadrons of Helicopters and Strike Planes. [/color]

[color=#898989]Against this force the ARMD could deploy one Company of Mechs, several old Tanks and a small force of strike planes. The leader of the ARMD forces, Harold 'Guts' Rickely prepared his forced much as before, intending to use his Tanks as bait he would draw the enemy forces into "Gallipoli Gap" before assaulting from all sides. [/color]

[color=#898989]However, the Capellans used different tactics this time round, Instead of waiting for daybreak before assaulting, they sent the 3 Mech Companies into the gap immediatley, before the ARMD forces were truly ready to face them. Within 15 minutes the ARMD had lost two lances of Mechs and were fighting a desperate rearguard action with the last while the ejected pilots mounted up on spare Mechs back at the spaceport. Soon the Capellan Armoured units joined the Mech Companies on the front. Even with the reinforced Lances the ARMD was on it's last legs, When the Capellans called in Air support all but two of the ARMD Mechs were standing, 'Guts' and cadet Jacob Roskill (who was to earn the callsign "Three Mechs" after going through three mechs in this engagement). Guts Ordered Jacob to fall back, and revealed his only trap of the engagement, two Long Tom Artillery pieces they had taken on a raid, ordering the operators to use his co-ordinates as a beacon he charged into the midst of the Capellan forces, the heavy artillery shells wreaked havoc among the Capellan forces, but also led to the death of Harold 'Guts' Rickely. The Capellans made an orderly retreat, salvaging most of their lost Mechs and several ARMD mechs. [/color]

[color=#898989]This battle demonstrated the Capellan ability to Learn new tactics on the battlefield, as is also demonstrated in their conflict on ..... (extract ends)"[/color]
