So the rough plan is that
During ground surveying Alexei's ships are stumbled upon by a Tau Patrol. A resulting skirmish breaks out and Alexei in his ship flees; the only one to make it out. Not before data collected shows that the artefact is on the surface.
Alexei returns with the Dark Angels who attempt a search and extraction operation that ends in failure. They are then evacuated.
Then this will go onto an invasion
So with that information what ships are Alexei's assessment squad using and how many?
With that answered what size Tau patrol would just win a skirmish with them, realistically only allowing 1 surviving ship?
