Smart bomb, dumb pilot
Military authority Will Enford comments
Hades inhabitants were up in arms yesterday, following a blunder by the local Militia Air Reserve. The incident occurred while Thripp Ground Attack craft practised using the Descartes Self-guided Munition. The target was a series of disused warehouses; unfortunately, a novice pilot flying one of the craft mistook the planet's main Fertilite refinery as his target., and let fly with both of the bombs his craft was carrying. The high-tech weaponry did its job, and Fertilite imports are now urgently required.
