Tyr:

SOL headquarters has sustained light damage. Were as a the greater area in central Brussels have been damaged heavily. The Science Academy and the associated library and archives are almost completely destroyed.

The Blue clan has managed to escape to their ship with very little damage to their troops or ships. Though thanks to some smart thinking by the ground troops we lost only a small number of civilian lives. I have started analysis of the failures in our intelligence with some of the our spies who are experts on the clan as well as a noted academic who has been researching their impact in relation to the Incident.

(Please wait for vision : Tyr)
They masked their arrival with two factors. A higher speed FTL jump drive, it is capable of speeds up to 22 AU /h  which meant they were able to jump to Earth with little prior warning. The only noticeable effect was a radiation wake caused by the jump, so we will be able to tell what it is… now. I am sending some hardened SOL FF-12’s after them, but its likely they will jump to FTL again soon.

In reality we have lost quite a substantial asset, a Cyborg produced before the incident. We don’t have the technology to replace it.
