Aerial photography of the Groom Range facility indicates the almost total destruction due to the combined effects of the surprise attack from unknown forces and from the unscheduled detonation of classified prototype ordinance. Efforts to recover technology or personnel are not advised, as it is likely that enemy opposition has remained on-site. The survivors of this attack exfiltrated to an undisclosed location in order to evaluate counterattack options.
