Autocannon fire sprayed across the massive Grizzly Gear, doing little more than chipping the paint. The enemy Gears -- Jägers and Iguanas -- fell back while the massive fire support machines advanced across the battlefield. Rocket fire was more effective at slowing them down, but it was only putting off the inevitable advance across the Southern position. One unlucky pilot in the Northern squadron screamed when his Gear's armor started to crack open under the rocket barrage, but his buddies quickly came to back him up. Their heavy weapons reduced the Southern scout units to so many armoplast bits in a heartbeat.
Within a few minutes the rest of the Northern Guard advance rolled into position. Huge Aller tanks reduced the last Southern fortifications to dust, while skilled infantry troopers cleared every last hiding place. Forward observers radioed in to give the position of the retreating Southern MILICIA forces and mobile artillery units made sure there was no escape.
The Interpolar War had begun and the Northern Guard was going to win it.
The Northern Guard is the main armed force of the North and leading the fight against the Southern MILICIA. It is an integrated army ready to take on all comers and hand them a resounding defeat. The pride of the North, the Guard fields a devastating combination of Gears, armor and infantry, ideal for fighting in the deserts, forest and jungles of Terra Nova.
