After Action Report: Operation Odysseus. 15, November, 2525
Location: Planet Harvest, currently occupied by hostile alien forces.
Commanding Officer: Major Daphne Bekyros, UNSC
Bravo Team: 1, 2, 3 (providing overwatch from Pelican), 4, 5, 6. 0500 Zulu jump-off.
Bravo Team’s orders are to make contact with enemy communications array located near a river at a location near the UNSC Red Horse’s touchdown position on planet Harvest. Bravo is to ascertain disposition of enemy forces, plant a Trojan program onto the communication array to piggyback the signal to the Red Horse for decryption and intelligence purposes. If the team is discovered, all traces of enemy forces are to be eliminated and any intelligence that can be returned to the Red Horse for analysis is to be collected and returned.
Bravo inserted via Pelican Delta 2-5 approximately 10k from array, and the ground elements of the team then progressed via foot to an overwatch position to gather intelligence and mark troop movements and strength. After a lengthy reconnoiter, the team was broken down into smaller fireteams which then infiltrated the array location in order to plant the program in the array, the remainder providing cover. The program was installed properly, however one of the team members was spotted prior to exfil, and a firefight ensued. No major casualties or wounds taken by Bravo, and the enemy contacts were all neutralized in short order. All corpses were then collected, along with any weaponry the team could scrounge, and Bravo dusted off in Delta 2-5 to return to Red Horse.
