RE: Attack on Aerilon

INCIDENT SUMMARY

On 30 January 2005, elements of CVW-11 including Raptor, Predator and Vipers attempted an interdiction to strike at a hard target on Aerilon. We were engaged at 30,000 feet by air units of Cylon forces, and the entire attack went under quickly. We were barely able to put a dent into the enemy armor and flight and they were able to inflict massive damage on the wing. Due to imminent attack on Kings Bay by enemy Basestars, we were forced to withdraw and had to leave several personnel behind. I will have the mission to recover them ready immediately.

I take full responsibility for our failure and will work harder to make sure that we are better prepared for this type of mission in the future.

Command: We were able to land the insertion team, but we will need to rework their exfil. The passcode, if I do not go myself on the mission is: 'Purple'.
