Ragno is a relatively large structure. It lies on top of the canyon walls. The main fortress lies inside a thick, concrete wall that is shaped like a hexagon. Inside these walls, the fortress is largely an open area, with a few buildings, including a vigilance tower. Outside the main fortress are a few gun towers located by the lower canyon walls that provide heavy anti-aircraft fire, as well as power plants and sub-stations at the northeast. A large portion of the fortress lies underground, in the form of an extensive tunnel network, including four straight tunnels that extend from one wall to another, with large platforms, presumably helipads, at each end. These tunnels are just large enough for a fighter plane to fit inside, a [[Tunnel Flight|detail that was exploited]] by Emmerian ace [[Talisman]] during the [[Emmeria-Estovakia War]].
 
   
At the bottom of the canyon, next to the rivers, there are a few docks for supply ships. There is also a large dam, either to provide hydroelectric power for the fortress and keep the rivers from flooding, or both.

==Description==
Early in the [[Emmeria-Estovakia War]], Ragno Fortress came under the control of the [[Estovakian Army]]. Later in the war, Emmerian forces attacked the fortress during their counter-offensive against [[Federal Republic of Estovakia|Estovakia]]. The attack had four parts, the REA (Republic of Emmeria Army) 3rd Corps, 1st Brigade, 1st Tank Battalion (aka [[Warlock Separate Battalion]]), led by 1st Lt.* Gary Campbell, made a head on attack against the Estovakians outside the fortress while heading for the structure itself. The REAF ([[Republic of Emmeria Air Force]]) 8th Air Division, 15th Fighter Squadron, led by Commander* [[Daniel Pollini]] (callsign Windhover) attacked the supply depots in the rivers, the ships at the depots, and the two substations near the dam northeast of Ragno. An REN ([[Republic of Emmeria Navy]]) helicopter unit, the 3rd Fleet, 1st Helicopter Unit, led by Commander Richard Lee (callsign [[Yellow Jacket]]) was to attack the four main tunnels mentioned above. All three of these units were supported by the 8th Air Division, 28th Fighter Squadron (aka [[Garuda Team]]), led by an REAF captain* known only by his callsign, [[Talisman]]. After these operations, the Emmerians attacked the main above ground portion of the fortress, and were able to defeat all Estovakian forces inside the fortress. From this point on, it was once again under Emmerian control.

==Notes==
 
*The ranks above marked with an * are questionable. The in-game assault records show the same rank insignia for Gary Campbell, the commander of the Warlock Separate Battalion, and [[Marcus Lampert]], Garuda Two. According to Lampert's page on AceWiki, he is a 1st Lt. Since Gary Campbell has the same rank insignia shown, he would likely have the same rank. However, it is highly unlikely that a 1st Lt. would command an entire battalion, a job that is given to a Lt. Col. in the US Army and US Marine Corps. Also, "Commander" is apparently the rank held by Windhover. However, Windhover is in the Air Force, while Commander is usually a Navy rank. In the first mission, Windhover refers to himself as "Commander Windhover of the 15th Squadron," though this is likely a reference to his being the squadron commander, not a mention of his rank. Third, Talisman is called a Captain on his AceWiki page. However, he is the commander of the 28th Fighter Squadron, and squadrons are normally lead by a Lt. Col., like the Strigon Squadron (Lt. Col. Voychek). However, these discrepancies could be caused by a different rank system used in the Emmerian Military than the one used by the US military, though they seem to share the same ranks.

"Although it's often been called impregnable, we've taken over Ragno Fortress."
Emmerian Briefing Officer[1]

Grageo Canyon[a] is a large ravine located in the eastern regions of Anea. This is where a major Republic of Emmeria Army base, Ragno Fortress, is located.

DescriptionEdit

Grageo Canyon was formed from over tens of millions of years of erosion. The height difference from the top of the plateau and bottom of the canyon is approximately 1 kilometer.[2]

The plateau itself is a very barren, flat and open terrain with trees and shrubbery dotting the landscape. Situated on the plateau is Ragno Fortress, a major Emmerian military installation that is often called impregnable.[1] Electricity is generated through Kernos Dam, which was built atop the ravine and connects to numerous substations along the river.[2]

History Edit

F-16C Over Ragno Fortress

Emmerian F-16C Fighting Falcons flying over Grageo Canyon during the Battle of Ragno Fortress

During the Emmeria-Estovakia War, utilizing it's P-1112 Aigaion, Estovakia had forced Emmeria on the defensive as they would retreat from the Anean mainland. They would eventually drive Emmerian forces out of Grageo Canyon and capture Ragno Fortress.

Following the destruction of Estovakia's Aerial Fleet, Emmeria immediately began advancing towards Gracemeria.[3] In their path was Ragno Fortress, and shortly afterward, plans were drawn up to retake the facility.[1]

On March 6, 2016, Emmeria began an attack on the fortress. Warlock Separate Battalion would advance down the center and engage Estovakian ground forces along the way to the fortress. To cripple the base, Windhover Squadron would destroy substation facilities along the river. Yellow Jacket would deploy the Emmerian Special Operations Forces into the fortress through tunnels which ran through the facility. Garuda Team would aid in these operations and ultimately see them succeed. Following the destruction of a majority of Estovakian forces, special forces would wipe out any remaining opposition, and the facility would once again under complete Emmerian control.[1]
