Emmeria then deployed Garuda Team to dispose of the threat. They flew into the canyon at low altitude as to avoid radar detection and destroyed all ground facilities along the path. Garuda Team would eventually come across the catalyst transport squad and destroy it.

After an arduous engagement, Emmerian reinforcements finally arrived and made quick work of the Estovakian fighters.
