Sitrep: ROBUST PURGE
The following is a work of speculative fiction, or FICINT (fiction intelligence).
Active sonar has had no effect. Targets, and by extension their pilots, are either unaware of being tracked, or are undeterred. Strikepod Alpha continues to prosecute CLASSIC-3 and CLASSIC-4 near the mouth of the Patapsco River, while Beta and Gamma track CLASSIC-1 near Bloody Point, and Classic-2 near Bloodworth Island, respectively.
Zumwalt has arrived in Baltimore ahead of schedule, having left Norfolk early to avoid effects of Hurricane Matthew. Additional vessels, including USS Leyte Gulf (CG 55), USS Jason Dunham (DDG 109), among others, are expected to arrive over the next few days.
Strikepods report that, as Zumwalt transited the Bay, targets briefly shadowed her at a range of approximately 1000 meters before breaking off and returning to previously reported locations.
Given that targets are unresponsive to active sonar warnings, we have deployed eight armed remoras - four to Alpha, and two each to Beta and Gamma. Targets will be attacked if they display hostile intent.
