ACT 2, MISSION 08
Fighter squadron: Not given.
Description: As the backs of the GTD Carthage and her battlegroup are against the gravity well of Saturn, the Wargods move in for the kill.
- This was the first mission General Battuta created for Blue Planet, as well as the very first mission he ever made for any FreeSpace mod.
- The name of this mission comes from the Latin expression "Carthago delenda est", meaning "Carthage must be destroyed." Phrases similar to this were used by Roman politicians -- particularly, Cato the Elder -- during the Punic Wars, which indeed ended with the complete destruction of the ancient city-state of Carthage. Today, the same phrase is often used to denote an attitude of total war, which could allude to how the United Earth Federation appears to be losing their Ubuntu philosophy and moving closer towards fanatic militarism.
