Once again the indigenous population of Mars has wilfully attacked a peaceful convoy without provocation or warning!
A young member of the Imperial Japanese Court was being escorted to an unknown destination with a small column of troops past what was reported to be an abandoned Martian enclave but to her horror and band of Martians came out of nowhere to attack her and the column.
The Martians spy the column crossing their territory...
A view from the column as the Martians expose themselves
The first band jumps down to assault the lead unit
Battle is joined but the Imperial troops seem to fight of the first attack
As the second wave rushes forward the Imperial family member and her samurai bodyguard move off to one side to take the fight to the enemy
The front of the column is decimated and only the impervious suit is left
But disaster falls on the rear of the column as different band of Martians comes in fro the side and pushes back the Japanese
The remaining troops rally round their Royal package as she recovers from fighting off yet another band, loosing her bodyguard in the process
As the impervious suit is taken out the remaining troops rally round the steam tank ready to sell their lives dearly to protect the Imperial princess
Commander Yakitori makes a final stand on the steam tank
The princess and remaining members of the convoy have not been found and no traces of them are to be seen at the site of the battle...
The Japanese govenment want answers...
