The Event

On Penulber IX, 1974, a group of unmarked helicopters abruptly began firing upon a group of three Harbian oil facilities near the Dracohr Ocean. The workers, not sufficiently armed against the assailants, defended their workspaces virulently. Three Harbian eclipse agents were also present during the battle, and took to battling the covert helicopters. Thirty minutes after the attackers had arrived, one of the oil facilities was knocked into the sea after its main oil storage exploded in reaction to the attacks' collateral damage. By the time the Corporatocracy's reinforcements arrived, the unmarked enemies had left the area, leaving several hundred innocent oil workers dead or wounded. 

Several days of investigating led the Corporatocracy of Harbitros and the Harbian Eclipse Agency to believe that the unnamed attackers were under the United Soviette Republics' orders, and immediately the Cold War intensified with the fear that atomic war could initiate at any moment.
