"I bet those Emmerians are trying to break through our air defenses so they can bomb San Loma."
Estovakian soldier[1]

The San Loma Assault[2] was a key battle during the Emmeria-Estovakia War. It was the second battle during the war to take place in Tarvo.[3][4]

In order to destroy the P-1112 Aigaion, the Emmerian military devised a plan in which they would use Cavallia Air Force Base in San Loma to launch a surprise attack on the Aerial Fleet. Despite fierce Estovakian resistance and support from the Aigaion, the Emmerians were able to liberate the city.[1]


After the battle at the Selumna Peaks, the Emmerian military began to devise a plan to destroy the Estovakian cruise missile threat. Ultimately, they concluded that Cavallia Air Force Base in the Estovakian-occupied city of San Loma would be ideal.[1]


Three major operations took place during the battle: Warlock Separate Battalion, escorted by Windhover Squadron, advanced from the north and engaged enemy ground forces; Bomber Unit Stork and Hammerhead Squadron, escorted by Sky Kid Squadron, bombed Estovakian defensive and electronic warfare emplacements; the 2nd Fleet, escorted by Avalanche Squadron, moved in from the Fuscum Sea to engage a numerically superior Estovakian fleet before moving into Doypalm Bay to attack San Loma directly.[1]

As the Emmerians began to drive back the Estovakian forces, the P-1112 Aigaion began to provide Nimbus missile support from over the Fuscum Sea, using Marker Drones to guide the missiles to their targets.[1]


Following the success of the operation, numerous Republic of Emmeria Air Force squadrons would sortie from Cavallia to launch a surprise assault on the Aerial Fleet.[5]
