The bottom of the map was a solid line of purple when I took over as PL. I ordered a hot drop of our two squads onto Tumas Tech planet. Alpha spend the rest of the evening repelling attacks on the Tech plant. I initially sent Bravo to the quadrant immediate south of Tumas Tech Plant, but the B1 reported that the enemy would not be dislodged, and I could not spare any men from Alpha to assist.
Thus I pulled Bravo off of the southern quadrant and ordered Bravo to attack the adjacent northern quadrant. This took some time but was successful. With our northern flank secured, Bravo was ordered to return to Tumas Tech and assist in regaining control of the Tech plant which had momentarily shifted over to VS control.
We ended the evening achieving my primary goal of splitting the VS territory in half, declared a strategic victory, and shut down the TG PS2 operation.
Noteworthy, even with overwhelming population advantage 62/20, we found a challenging enemy.
This leads me to believe that there is merit in selecting a continent which delivers a substantial population advantage. Of course, no one wants to ghost cap all night long (which is certainly not what we faced).
