The aim of the operation was to enforce GDI sanctions and restrictions in response to provocation. Before the Second Tiberium War, an operation occurred in Chile. The GDI Commander sent out Orca Fighters and bombers to attack the Nod defenses to spark the war again between GDI and Nod.
As part of the operation, GDI warplanes fired on two Nod defense sites in southern Chile. According to the GDI Central Command strikes occurred at 0400 Zulu. Orca Bomber and fighter units fired precision-guided weapons at air defense sites near Santiago. They struck six Nod targets, including surface-to-air-missile batteries and associated command and control systems, according to Lt. Col. Tom Braider, a spokesman for the U.S. Central Command on the Philadelphia. The Orcas returned safely to base.
