RE: Basestar/Raider PHD 387 (Air)
On March 20 at approximately 12:00 hours, a pair of Raiders jumped into battelgroup space, as they have regularly each day since February 10, heralding attacks that have come to be known as Swarms. After the appearance of the Raiders, three basestars jumped into the system as well and released yet more Raiders and Heavy Raiders upon us. Combined air assault held off the Cylon fighter forces while the Areion, with amplification support from the Corsair, Praetorian and a portion of our Raptor flight, charged its anti-Cylon radiation weapon known as The Gun. When deployed, it neutralized the Cylon fighters and rendered the basestars - one of which was the ECM 'stealth' basestar encountered on two previous occasions - apparently open to assault. Ground forces were dispatched, full report from the Marines attached as well, for our records.
- LT Leyla Aydin (treated aboard CEX Areion post-engagement)
