When the Raiders hit the capital to raid a civilian vehicle factory, the defenders were isolated in the Grand Staffordshire Jungle. Only the Kensai's flight of Skadis was able to respond. The unit's Captain, Norman Stoke, led the counterattack. As the four VTOLs confronted the pirates though he knew they were outmatched.
A fierce battle ensued through the streets of Trent as both sides maximized their speed and maneuverability. Half the city was ruined as the 'Mechs took cover in buildings to launch attacks on the slashing VTOLs. Stoke's assault continued until his comrades blazed to the ground. Finally, the rest of the Kensai reached the city.
The pirates fled when the Kensai 'Mechs arrived, leaving five of their number among the wreckage.
A statue of Stoke and his comrades stands sentinel in a memorial park in the center of rebuilt Trent, to which the Raiders never returned.
Since then, Stoke's Flight, augmented to company strength has been contracted out independently of the rest of the command, as the elite pilots are in high demand for recon and escort duties.
