Defense of Tikonov
Attack of New Aragon
The 3rd Voltigeurs landed on New Aragon during Operation Riposte with the objective of taking a supply depot at Grahamsville. The city was secured by a newly constructed defense wall, a river swollen by summer melt off, and the New Avalon Crucis March Militia. The Capellan force lost units to the surging river as they forded it but fought well until their commanding officer was badly wounded. The green militia forces in outdated equipment then routed the Voltigeurs at the wall and captured them after a short pursuit.
