- "Like everything in the COG army, there's an acronym for street fighting: M.O.U.T. "Military Operations in Urban Terrain." We just know it means close, personal, and higher casualties. In the Pendulum Wars, some guys couldn't take it. Black outs, freaks outs, suicides. You didn't give 'em shit because its might be you someday. To win M.O.U.T. battles, you need numbers, the manuals advise three to one odds to beat an entrenched urban force. If we're lucky the odds might be three to one day--against."

Order of Battle
Search and Destroy
Foxtrot and Delta-One were ordered to search the city block by block for any Locust activity. Foxtrot was able to plug an Emergence Hole up on one street and moved onto 6th and LaCroix. But, the Locust re-emerged and pinned Delta-One down. They called for assistance from Foxtrot who came running back to help. Gus reported to Delta that they found a sniper's nest, but could not get to it because of the Tickers. Sgt.Alex Brand was able to climb on top of some rubble and jump over to the sniper's nest. She blew one of the Tickers up which setted a chain reaction off that destroyed the sniper's nest. Delta was able to defeat the remaining Locust.
After the battle, the members of Delta were surprised to learn that Alex was a woman. Alex was later reassigned to Delta for a mission to Jilane City to investigate an distress call from the old breeding farms.
