The Skirmish on Furlin Cliffside was one of the last battles of the Pendulum Wars.

Order of Battle[]

UIR Ambush and Surrender[]

The Furlin soldiers surrendering.

Shortly after the Armistice between the UIR and COG was announced, a group of Independent Republic of Furlin soldiers attacked C Company 26th Royal Tyran infantry on a cliffside road overlooking a Furlin town, believing the news to be a COG trick. They pounded the celebrating Gears from their mountain entrenchments, killing several of them, and the Gears, led by Lt.Preston and Sgt.Marcus Fenix, began shooting back at the Indies. Several mortar shells hit the town below, severely damaging several buildings. The COG commander contacted the UIR Major in charge of the attack and tried to get him to stop attacking and work out a temporary ceasefire until the official one went into effect, but the Major refused to believe him and continued the attack. However, the commander then received word from his superiors that the ceasefire was for real, and he ordered his men to stop their attack. Three hours later, he led his forces down from the mountain and surrendered to the Gears.[1]
