Tiaga Prime- Southern Front- Kitchner Offensive D-day- Imperial artillery as one opened up on the Stygian Defensive line in a sudden surprise bombardment. Stygian forces were caught initially by surprise as the rain of steel fell upon them. 40% of the Imperial gun were focused on forward troop positions. 20% targeted reserve formations and roads that serviced the Stygian front line. 20% targeted known Stygian gun emplacements with both chemicals and high explosives. The remaining 20% were silent awaiting only a sign of enemy artillery before they could engage in instant counterbattery fire.
