Long Distance Firefight

Disaster struck the British, as the battlements of the fortress burst into action with gunfire. The cavalry unit took particularly heavy casualties with the Sergeant being killed outright with the first bullet. The remaining cavalrymen scrambled out of their saddles and headed for the cover of the buildings. However, only three of them made it to cover unscathed. However, despite this inauspicious start to the firefight, the superior fire discipline and ranges of the British began to make their toll. Not within too long, few Jafraynis were willing to show their heads above the parapets. A deathly silence fell upon the battlefield.
