Elan Ro squashes bulge
At the same time as Shadowstrike struck the Praetorians in the north, Elan Ro pushed northwards, attacking the southern flank of the Imperial bulge. Though the Tau took heavy casualties and faced stiff resistance against the Librian 57th, the Imperial units were obliged to withdraw and by the end of 0303.008M42 the two Tau forces had met in the small state of Ethis in west Whettis. The encirclement was complete and the front line had been shortened by more than 500 miles.
