The Raid on Jacinto Med was an attack by Locust forces on one of the hospitals in Jacinto City during their siege of the city.

Order of BattleEdit

The Raid BeginsEdit

"Locust got some serious sacks coming in here like this."
— Cpl.Dom Santiago, after the raid begins

The Locust opened their assault by hitting the area around Jacinto Med and the hospital itself with Mortars. When Locust were spotted entering the hospital, a trap was laid for them in one of the courtyards. Two squads of Gears opened fire on them from the second floor, setting off fuel tanks that had been placed around them, killing this wave of Locust. More Locust entered the hospital, but Delta Squad and other Gears began pushing them back. Because of the mortar fire, power to the hospital kept cutting in and out, and Lt.Anya Stroud worked form the CIC to try to restore it every time. Outside of the hospital, KR Seven-Five flew CAP over Sector 4 along with several other King Ravens, and reported that Reavers were inbound from the north. Centaur Zero-Nine defended a blockade near the hospital, and reported that they were having trouble holding off the Locust. A squad of Gears also worked with a King Raven to hold an intersection near the hospital that was being rushed by dozens of Locust, cutting them down before they reached the building. However, the primary blockade near the hospital was soon overrun, and the Locust took over the streets near the hospital, and entered in greater numbers. Delta Squad and two other Gears forced back a group of Locust from a courtyard, but came under attack by a Reaver. However, a King Raven arrived and chased it off, allowing Delta to reenter the hospital while the two other Gears secured the courtyard. After they killed a group of Drones, Delta was contacted by Anya and requested to assist in the fighting outside of the hospital. Centaur Two-Three arrived outside the hospital as well, setting up position to fire on the Locust.[1]

Locust RetreatEdit

"Running away won't help, I'll just shoot you in your asses!"
— Dom, as the Locust retreat from the hospital

As the fighting intensified, KR Five-Nine engaged in a dogfight with a Reaver, but was shot down and crashed into Jacinto Med. Delta Squad continued to clear out Locust forces in the hospital, until the reached the front entrance. They found Pvt.Benjamin Carmine there, who explained to Sgt.Marcus Fenix that the area he had been defending got too hot, and another squad of Gears had rounded him up to fight. They went outside and joined this other squad, who had taken casualties, losing one member to a sniper. Delta killed the Locust near the entrance, and entered the street. A King Raven gunship arrived and provided air support, taking out a Reaver and several Drones. Delta flanked the Locust through a store, and got the drop on the remaining Drones, killing several. The rest of the Locust began a fighting retreat from the hospital, killing another Gear, but giving up the attack and leaving the hospital in COG hands.[1]
