Cop raid unsuccessful in Nephele

screen71The first reports have arrived about lawful forces raiding Nephele earlier today, attempting to seek, neutralise or aprehend known TRF members in the area as well as confiscate illegal goods. Raids of the Delta Outpost were also planned but repeated attempts to penetrate the defenses of the Bundschuh base remained without success as TRF forces together with PX mercenaries repelled wave after wave of police officers. This operation was staged at the initiative of the military Blood Guard faction, fulfilling its policing duty as always, in full force. Members of the SFP have been also sighted in the area but no violent clashes between the defenders of the Nephele systems and the Sirius Federal Police have occured.

At the request of TRF representatives, members detached from Cohors II and III Venatores, more accurately Centuria I Principes from the IInd and Centuria II Hastati from the IIIrd were quickly formed in a temporary unit and dispatched to the defense of Nephele. The PX operation ended succesfully when TRF representatives transferred funds to PX client accounts after the end of the operation with the strategic retreat of the police forces.

Clashes like this one happen frequently as factions go head to head with each other in sporadic or more organised exchanges of fire. Although we are living in a relative peace besides the ASF/CSF conflict that doesn’t seem to affect the factions in general, these occasional clashes can develop into bigger conflicts, thus developement of defensive capabilities or having aditional auxiliary forces strengthening the garrisons would be a good ideea.
