Spartan Palmer must destroy the anti-air Wraiths and give the UNSC Hornets a chance to land near the outposts.

Halo: Spartan Assault Gameplay – “Clear”

CLEAR A LANDING ZONE FOR SECOND WAVE OF MARINES.

As Spartan Palmer led the charge on Draetheus-V, Spartan Davis continued to face considerable enemy threat on the moon. On a stroke of luck, the UNSC Eminent Domain was able outmaneuver Covenant forces in orbit over the moon and offer some support by deploying marines to the southern Mirror Flats.
The 3rd Helljumper Platoon was the first to land on Draetheus-V’s moon. Spartan Davis, having held out against a constant stream of Unggoy and Sangheli for a full day, quickly set out to clear the landing zone for the next wave of drop pods.
