"Clever." And wrong. But clever.

"So we have the excuse, we just need to- do it."

"So what do we do?"

"An attack of some kind." She examines the plans they have of Skar's base. The rocket tram control station is in a tower fronted by a large plaza, big enough to land several shuttles with room to spare. The other sides are walled off by either densely packed buildings or a steep cliffside drop to the bay below. "But if he's been holding off the Republic, something straightforward won't work. We need subterfuge, or an advantage of some kind."

"How has he been holding off the Republic, what kinds of defences or strategies does he have that prevent straightforwardness?"

"Sniper nests, probably. There's not a lot of cover on the approach, see, from the second story and up you have line of sight to almost everywhere."

"And the Republic hasn't decided to do a sneak strike, or it's too difficult and they're spread too thin."

Permalink

"Mm. We need a distraction."

"My Lord," he says, turning to Occlus, "did you mention we could leak information to the Republic?"

Permalink

"That is a possibility, yes."

Permalink

"Could they be the distraction?"

"-that could work. And then the Republic dropships will let us get close without alerting Skar."

Occlus nods. "Very good."

Permalink

"How does that plan fail?"

Permalink

"The Republic doesn't attack, or doesn't commit. We can't get the IFF on the dropships updated."

Permalink

"Why does the republic not attack or commit in that case?" He turns to Occlus. "What's our intel?"

Permalink

"Moff Pyron?"

"As far as we can tell, Skar's been using a scrambler to confuse Republic transmissions in his immediate area. We think he may inflating the number of casualties and enemies reported. If we give them the bypass for the scrambler and a purportedly more accurate count, they should be willing to commit a full assault."
