As the Battle for Hythoria has been raging in the north, the Prussian Supply Depot Port has languished as a back water, a waypoint for troops and supplies heading north. With no enemy acition for weeks, its alert status has waned to a tropical laxness.
In a early dawn assault Captian Barnsworth led a platoon of regulars, 4 Mechanified Infantry and 2 light vehicles successfuly across the Steaming River to attack the Prussian depot.Complications for the British were the 2 light vehicles suffered reduced reliability checks due to the fording of the Steaming River. British Mission: Destroy depot supply dump and if possible Sink the Tramp Steamer docked at their quay.
Prussian mission was to hold the depot and not lose the supply dump. Complicating the Prussian situation was that they had, in order to support the northern drive, reduced their depot defenders to 2 squads of regulars and the ship board crew, 2 Klanken Troopers, 1 light field piece and a gatling point defence gun on board the ship. Prussians had defensive works up around most of the depot.
