The Pagonia and The Nevermore Line OffensiveEdit


Bastion Rock - Agrippa Sector

The 18th offensive at The Pagonia Line was based upon the principle of simultaneous attacks. In this operation, all arms were operating simultaneously along a broad front. Armored units were placed in the center or near it, attacking high payoff targets using close and combined arms maneuvers with tanks. Field reconnaissance, special operation and other specialized functions were performed simultaneously. Thus, all the available offensive combat power was applied against the enemy throughout the depth and breadth of the battlefield. Armored units plowed through the center, creating one or more breaches that was exploited by swifter units. Skirmishers were sent to the flanks to divert the enemy's attention and tie up its reserves. Finally, indirect fire ensured that the enemy forces had nowhere to retreat to. The enemy commander was presented with an unenviable dilemma of having to react to multiple threats that overwhelmed his ability to cope with the battlefield situation. Thus conditions where created where the enemy had no place to hide and no time to rest.


The 18th offensive on The Nevermore Line begain with Artillery and engineers cutting a swath through the minefields that was between the 18th and its objective. Next, the armored units supported by air regiments attacked in an effort to punch a hole in the enemy line. Lord General Militant Ray XVI was fond of mobile warfare and was an expert at overrunning opponents and exploiting weakness in the enemy's defenses. Once the defense line was breached, armored units held in reserve made a breakthrough and outflanked the enemy's position. While all this was going on, Storm Troopers armed with anti-armor weapons waded into what remained of the enemy's armored units. The infantry had taken positions near the heavy artillery and the command post. Once the breach was created, they joined the fight taking the enemy positions on the Nevermore Line one by one.


With the Chaos forces counterattacking on the Nevermore Line, the 18th defensive doctrine was to use multiple lines of infantry and storm troopers supported by artillery. The armored regiments were kept back in order to counterattack locally and bolster the lines of defense, fighter aircraft would fly ground attack and air superiority missions.

The problem with this rigid line of defense was that it was difficult to mount an effective counterattack due to the confusion and loss of maneuverability created by a high concentration of mixed troops.


To remedy this, Ray XVI used the concept of elastic defense. To be effective, his units had a high concentration of mobile units. Once the battle was underway, the 18th mounted small local counterattacks with storm troopers and armor to probe for weak spots in the attacker's line. Once the generalized strike order was given, the 18th moved as one and in a very short time went on a massive counter-offensive.

The tactic's main drawback was that any unit that didn't respond quickly find itself crushed under the treads of friendly armor. The end result was a high number of casualties on both sides.
