A classic battle of maneuver, El'rico used his cadre's superior agility to slow and eventually stop the Orkish Waa Ozkar without becoming locked in close-quarters battle.

Exploiting the agility of Devilfish-mounted Pathfinders, Hudson's team not only provided valuable intelligence on the location and strength of Waa Ozkar but also used salvos of seeker missiles to immobilize the ramshackle enemy scouting vehicles.

Note the secondary K-8 type sun in the background; the high electrical interference from its solar wind made sensor sweeps unreliable, which extended the guerilla campaign by years. Note also the relatively undamaged state of the gunship, which was later famous for the amount of battle damage it endured and number of rebuilds it underwent while still remaining in frontline service.
