8:00 AM Somewhere in Tunisia 24 hours after the Incursion into Tunisia
Jonathan Brown prepared to set down in a remote area of Tunisia. They were under orders to establish a Shadow Base for further incursions into Africa. There were also plans underway to set up a detention camp in the country, but that would come later.
They were biding their time before now. As planned, the news believes that the attack was perpetrated by GLA forces. The gruesome image that Jonathan Brown created helped to add evidence towards the GLA, and he made sure all traces of US involvement were non-existent, including wiping the CCTV video and any sound files. For safety, he also swiped the hard drives. The lack of communication codes prevented them from being uploaded to ECA command, so he felt safe.
Soon, the Shadow Company landed, along with a recent Arrival of the Engineering force and their skycranes. They were to work quickly, as they did not want to be discovered. But so far, it seems that they would not be detected.
Patrols had begun to become more frequent and armed as a result of the Liquidators. According to the warlords, Omar had been captured and now they had to be much more careful. If enemies invaded, the GLA would have to defend itself until its leadership was restored. Patrols now included much heavier GLA armarmants. Scorpions and Quad Cannons passed through the streets with heavy mercenaries hired by the GLA doing military drills and marches through towns. Convoys included heavy ural trucks with stingers, Marauder-class tanks, toxin tractors, rocket buggies, and demo-tracks.
The Liquidators themselves were only seen in areas of government interest, unlike before when you would see Liquidator patrols nearly everywhere where GLA military were seen. This had lead to some discontent in the territories under GLA protection, as they believed that their military influence was weakening. However, this was not the case. The forces of the GLA would show examples of their might through military parades and demonstrations at times, and one such parade ended in disaster with a militia force trying to attack a GLA military facility, only for Grads to fire upon them and show that the GLA were still strong enough to keep order.
9:30 AM Tunisia: Sector 5
The previous patrol was already early. Instead of having the break they were hoping for, GLA soldiers had to go out early. It was muggy and humid as the patrol drove past the roads. Soldiers and vehicles moved slowly through Sector 5: the region of which was purged by the unknown enemy of ECA influence. As they came across an older road, GLA soldiers saw cranes through the brush and went to investigate. They found that it was an unauthorized base.
"Get someone on the line!" one ordered, as the other grabbed a phone. The patrol began to spread and surround the facility, keeping to the shadows and brushes of the trees.
"We should not be avoiding our fears like it is the plague. Rather, we should be charging into our fears and facing them head-on. My one fear is losing everything to anyone; but that is why we have war, isn't it?" - Omar Al-Ghazi, former Grand Warlord of the Global Liberation Army & Current Leader of Serpent Cell

Captain Jonathan Brown was assigned to patrol the surrounding area of the new base. So far, all they saw was wildlife. However, something caught their eye in the bushes. He took his binoculars and had a closer look. What he saw were some armed people attempting to call in the base location. Thankfully, they had already setup Jamming stations in the area, so the armed rebels simply got angry at the lack of any response. He called over to his Marksmen: "Enemy Targets, southsouth-west, 537 meters." His Marksmen quickly aimed at the rebels, and shot a few bursts from their rifles. A few of the rebels went down, and they began to panic. They loaded up their two trucks, and attempted to get out of there. One of them quickly bogged down in mud however, trapping them. The other, Captain Brown ordered his Olympus team to fire a missile at them. He did so, and even though the truck was fast, the missile was faster. It was totally destroyed, leaving no survivors. The other truck's panicked occupants were quickly dispatched by another patrol who wanted to see what all the noise was.
Brown then radioed in to command: "This is Captain Jonathan Brown. We have been discovered. We killed the patrol before they could get contact or escape, but I suspect that they were on a time schedule." He got the affirmation, and continued to patrol until he had new orders.
(Note: This may be continued in a battle thread depending on the orders.)

Captain Brown continued his patrol until he got a message on his radio. "Captain Brown, our orders are to RETREAT to avoid needless casualties. Your evidence suggests that no video footage was caught of this, so we are evacuating quickly. No distraction necessary. Head back to base, and get into a transport." Brown took his squad back to base, and got into a transport to leave.
