Shortly after the destruction of all Chimeran anti-air weapons by Echo Team, Foxtrot One-Twelve, alongside the rest of the invasion force initiated the battle. However, almost immediately, nearly all SRPA military forces were wiped out when Chimeran forces ambushed them. Having been shot down, Foxtrot One-Twelve and his units were trapped and surrounded, begging command for rescue, he noted that half of his squad had been slaughtered. Overwhelmed and caught off-guard by the slaughter, Com One was forced to deny his request. Fortunately, the nearby Echo Team responded to his mayday call and rescued most of Foxtrot One-Twelve and his remaining men, who then was able to retreat to a safe-zone.
