    Underneath deep foliage Talos Barrenfist spied out a facility crest around the shore north of their position next to a massive transport. The establishment in question was a makeshift prison camp for Republic military personal captured by the Hutt Cartel. After tracing the location to the planet of Ylesia, the Grand Army had two units, one marine platoon for assault and another a medical team for the recuse effort.

    After a few minutes of quiet observation with his holobinoculars Lieutenant turned toward his fellow officer, Dr. Agranfena Landis.

    Passing the binoculars over to her, the spaceborn commented.“Security appears decent but not on high alert. We should have the element of surprise if nothing else. Intelligence gathered suggests our comrades is holed up in the centeral warehouse at the docks when they’re not doing forced larbor. Any opinion on the matter?”

    Aggie looked to her partner, Léon, who was busy tending to the very small team assembled from their very small unit. They looked out of place in the yellow-detailed gear, but she supposed this was as much of a regular force of soldiers that they were going to get, especially considering the entire platoon they were folded in to. She nodded to him and returned her eyes to the scene before them, checking her rifle and the helmet laying in front of her. A pair of holobinos appeared in front of her face, and she took them, looking through the device as her fellow Lieutenant spoke. It felt odd leading like this.

    She definitely wasn't a capable leader, that was for sure. Or at least, that's what she kept telling herself. The variables just didn't work. Her eyes scanned the various fortifications, and her brain desired to calculate their odds of getting into the facility before losing half their troops. It wasn't a high amount. Landis scrubbed the number from her brain as she pulled her rifle up from next to her legs, inhaling and scraping red hair off her forehead.

    "Well, considering they're doing forced labor, I'd guess the lot of them are tired, nutritionally deprived, maybe even insane. Probably getting beaten like any POW does, so let's hope all their injuries aren't severe. As for tactically, we've got the best shot we're going to get, so I'd recommend we take it. Soon. Ish. Lieutenant. Though I'll leave the minute details to the one with combat experience."

    She heard Léon mutter something under his breath.
    "Suck-up..."

    The doc sent a boot his way, finding it catch hard armor. Aggie hid a smile.

    “Makes sense.” Talos replied, scratching the side of his thick beard. The prisoners were said to number around at least forty. Of course given likely conditions mentioned by the doctor, not only do they need have to remove opposition without suffering heavy casualties but also escort sickened and injured prisoners out safely.

    Then again I never sign up to do easy jobs. Thinking so he noticed the little kick Aggie gave to her comrade Léon. Inwardly amused, the marine shifted his focus back to the mission. Pointing to the cliff that stood overhead the beach side prison he commented.

    “My second squad will escort your team up there through the jungle. It stands above the warehouse where the captives are in. The grapple lines brought along should make your descend to the building easy enough. First squad and I will advance toward the front entrance in the eastern side.

    As soon you’re in position, call us in and we’ve commence the assault. My side will divert attention to ourselves and providing you time to locate and free the prisoners. Once done we will link up and move toward the prier. Our ride is standing by and will pick us in that location. Have any questions doc?”

    Aggie nodded to the Lieutenant's plan, liking where this was going. Anything on the ground was going to be risky, plus she could finally use the rappelling training that she had spent so damned long on after a couple near falls. Hazmat rarely got to use a whole lot of what it was trained for, mainly just medical stuff, so starting the more interesting and flashy parts of what they did made the job look a whole lot better. And if they were lucky, orrhaps get some more attention. As of now, Doctor Landis had her second in command and two young medics under her wing. Léon and she were the only two qualified for pathological stuff, so they were essentially an over trained medical team.

    She looked at her helmet and then slipped it on, keeping the front visor open as a nod came. Landis eyed the climbing gear and then looked back toward the cliff, crawling back from the overlook and then standing up, slipping her rifle off her sling.
    "No questions for the marines...we'll meet you downhill. Appreciate you bringing us along for the road trip, Lieutenant."

    Aggie bumped fists with Léon and then helped him up, flicking the visor on his helmet and then pulling her visor down over her face, waiting for her detachment before setting off into the wooded regions. Time to kick ass and save lives.

    Barrenfist watched them vanished further into the foliage. A minute later he gestured for first squad to follow with him. Stealthily they made their way through the forest until they came in sight of the front gate. Using the bushes and trees as cover they examined the defenses before them. One watchtower with sentries adjunct to the gate on each side and a sandbag position on the lefthand managed by a machine gun crew.

    While waiting for confirmation from the others, Talos and his squad carefully line up targets to shoot when the moment comes. It wasn’t too long before Talos received the word from the other team they were ready. With a fierce smile he smiled, aiming down the sights at one of the guards on the tower to the right. Pulling the trigger, a blaster bolt flew and struck the Weequay guard in the face, killing him already before falling back.

    Swifty the rest of the squad opened up, killing and wounding all the sentries in a matter of seconds. “Forward!” The lieutenant shouted to his troops. Springing up the marines rushed out of their positions heading straight for the opened gate while the the sirens rang throughout the camp. Just before the squad reached the entrance, a speeder with a mounted turret came into view, firing a volley at the intruders.

    In mid run, the marines hit the dirt, avoiding but they were now pinned down. Swearing to himself Talos hoped Landis and her group on other side had better luck.
