After completing work in Kunduz, Theseus had been traveling to Zargabad airport to rendezvous with CODFISH logistics en route to Stratis for some well deserved downtime as well as training. Unfortunately, rebel groups in the region had just recently seized the airport and main town center.

Due to a current cease-fire agreement, US forces maintaining the border checkpoint are unable to intervene and requested Theseus's help in resolving the situation.
