Description:

During a Davion raid on the planet Weisau, a large unit of Goblins became cut off by enemy forces. Just as the infantry were ready to disembark, the Goblin commander saw the last Davion ’Mech lance destroyed by enemy assault ’Mechs. The whole unit then made a hasty but prudent retreat into the surrounding hills. This situation put the Goblin unit into a difficult situation.

Realizing that they were cut off from supplies on a hostile planet and with no news of a DropShip coming to pick them up, the commander and the subcommanders of the Goblin and infantry units devised a plan. They hoped to transmit their location to friendly troops still in the system, or at least to wreak enough havoc among the enemy to significantly influence the outcome of any future raid on Weisau.

The Goblin commander sent out his infantry on a raiding and reconnaissance mission. Their primary assignment was to find food and equipment stores and then to report the location of these back to the Goblin unit’s temporary headquarters in the hills. The infantry’s secondary mission was to raid any small towns and villages they encountered. Their tertiary objective was to hit any ’Mech and vehicle repair stations found, though only with the utmost caution.

Within a week, the infantry had discovered three small villages and a ’Mech service outpost. The outpost was to be the first target. The Davion commander held back the infantry as more useful for a later fight, and sent the Goblins in to attack the outpost. They managed to destroy it before the outpost troops could relay a message to their own commanders.

The infantry attacked the first village under cover of night. The village was only lightly defended and certainly not prepared for a sneak attack. After only a few minutes, the infantry captured a long-range communications station. The commander decided to use this station after the other villages were under his control.

The second and third villages fell just as quickly as the first. The last village was somewhat more prepared than the first two, however, and so the fighting lasted longer. The village defenders never really had a chance, however, against the combined forces of the infantry platoons supported by the Goblin’s lasers.

After the last village fell, the Goblin commander used his captured comm gear to contact any DropShips that had been in the system, even though he had no real hope of contacting friendly ships. It turned out that DropShips had been sent to look for them. After receiving the SOS, the DropShips arrived to pick up the unit a day later.
