Dawn surprise assault on Firebase Viper

Grenada Reconquest- Iberian Campaign- Iberia- Firebase Viper-  With the dominance of Stygian Artillery the 5th Anglican Guard regiment attempted a new tactical approach to overcoming the firebase.  During the night Anglican infantry attempted to infiltrate up to the firebase in order to launch a surprise assault at dawn.  As dawn came only a few of the Anglican units were close enough to launch the assault.  The rest came racing up only to run into a artillery barrage that devastated them and turned them back.  The same barrage isolated the infiltrating Anglican guard units cutting off their line of retreat.  The Anglican thus trapped attacked fearlessly but were eventually all cut down.  The Second assault on Firebase Viper had failed and the route to the capital still barred.
