In a daring sunset raid, Republic Forces launched a campaign to retake Aline III, beginning with the liberation of a crucial starport and surrounding city. In the late afternoon hours, the assault began with a concentrated bombing mission against a local Confederate station, followed by an intense ground battle as forces pushed into the city. Our sources on the ground indicate the Republic utilized geothermal conduit tunnels that ran connected into the city. After a skirmish at the starport, the Republic forces cleaned the streets to the cheers and support of local citizens happy for their return.
