The First battle of Retathon II was a battle for against the occupation of Retathon II, a sparsely populated planet, by Techia. It started shortly after the Battle over Kortorisa IV. the Yulairian and Kortorisan Civilization's forces had merged together to assault a TEC base on Retathon II and attempt to free the planet of the enemy's control. The Retathonians gladly helped the Allied assault.
A week later, however, after all foreign forces had left, the Trade Emergency Coalition successfully and quickly regained control of the planet.
- "Hmm... The communications array is located there..."
"Yes, but, they also have turbo laser emplacements."
" True. But, once we took out their communications, they'd be blind. We'll have to assault it."
Both forces arrived in a field near where the battle would be held, where together, Wolf and Kortoris Phane plotted strategies and landed what troops that were to be deployed. Once the troops were deployed and positioned, and a battle strategy had been planned, the assault on the TEC base had begun.
Techian attack Edit
- " Heavy fire, boss! 23 degrees! "
" I see it! Stay low!"
- – A pilot and squad leader
Craft combat Edit
- "A few dozen bogies just came up-- "
"I can't see 'em!"
"Pick up your visual scanning!"
- – Several TR-21K pilots
Allied retreat Edit
- "All ground troops have been ordered to retreat! Red Squadron! Cover our transports! "
" Yes, sir! Red 3, Red 4, pull in!"
- – A Kortorisan Officer and Red Leader
After the TR-21Ks were forced to retreat, the ground forces were recalled when the TEC had launched a counter-attack of troops they had stationed in the capital city. Once the remaining ground forces were recovered the Kortorisan transports left, while the TR-21Ks stayed behind to cover them. Once the transports were clear the TR-21Ks had made a run for it as well.
Back at the fleet Edit
Kortoris was very upset that they had lost since the Retathonians had counted on them. After listening to Kortoris, Wolf had jumped out of the hanger of a Kortorisan ship with his Nova armor on and a small personal shield generator, fell through the atmosphere and had landed on the planet's surface. He then trekked to the city, places the shield generator down, converted his armor's remaining Nova into it and had blown a charge he had laid earlier which was the equivalent of a nuclear explosion. The city had survived due to the Nova-powered shield, and the city was soon secured by Kortorisa IV. Wolf had suffered major injuries, but had soon healed.
A single week after the battle, on December 30, 2011, the Trade Emergency Coalition forces attacked the planet once more and successfully reoccupied it. It is part of their National Empire today, however demonstrations are occuring concerning independance.
