Charging strait at the Kuragin line, the Tempests open fire. One of them kills the two soldiers near the yellow house.
The second one fires at the machine gun nest. The blast kills the missile trooper, but the machine gunner manages to jump out of the way right in the nick of time.
The Lightning moves up as well. With no aliens in range, it instead fires at a Kuragin machine gun nest. A poor skill roll means that the gunnner misses.
"Everyone move up! use the Tanks for cover!" shouts Katrina as her forces move up behind the Tempests.Kuragin Troops:
The front troops move up and spread out to avoid being killed all at once. The officer and medic move up, but get stuck in between the Archer and Initiate.
The gunner of the Flak turret turns his attention to the Lightning, and opens fire, doing a point of structure damage. Thankfully the guy in the passenger seat survived.
The Archer moves up and fires a dreaded Mk IV missile at the Tempest, but missed by a few inches and instead destroys the well.
The Squire moves up as well and fires, but also misses and instead blows up a tree.Aliens:
Realizing that they have a horrid starting position the aliens group up and combine their strengths....
...And bring down a tree and small tower to create makeshift barricades.
Send in orders for Turn 2.
