The 3rd Motorisied Front advanced into Zaitu for the second time and deployed covering their objective. Mortars and infantry managed to take out the advancing tanks of the Zaitu Chasseurs which had inflicted so many casualties in their last encounter. The Maoists where cheered and managed to first stop and then push back the attacking armoured personal carriers with the support of the armoured tractors. The Maosits ultimately pinned and then destroyed the Zaitu force taking the second objective and pushing on to the unguarded Zaitu capital.
The Zaitu infantry lying in ambush by an objective the Maosits no longer needed to take where ignored and ultimately on hearing their capital was taken disbanded.
