SpacePort Assault

Situation

“Captain, the Landing Zone is secure. You need to take your force and move on to secure the SpacePort. Get past the walls and occupy the facility. Special Forces Infantry Platoons have been dispatched to support our attack and have detected active gun turrets on the perimeter. Looks like they are packing serious AutoCannons effective both as AntiMech and AntiAircraft weapons.”
