The Bombing of NCL Headquarters began at 0200 hours on the 20th of June. Previous to the bombing multiple NewAustralian UAVs had been scouting the area in search of the Natural Conservation League's headquarters and enemy positions. Once the NewAustralian military had gathered enough information bombers took to the skies and began attacking the positions. They faced mild opposition and suppressed most enemy attackers. The B-52s bombed parts of the headquarters complex but a cruise missile hit the main building causing communications across the base to fail. The bombing was regarded as a victory and most bombers returned home.

AftermathEdit

NCL forces began to withdraw from New Brisbane but the NCL still retained their occupation of New Brisbane.
