"Advance by Flight" is episode 281 of the Berserk manga series.


The Band of the Falcon has completed its ascent up the steep cliff face. Led by Griffith, the cavalry charge into the Kushan flank, which barely has time to react. A Kushan general realizes that a major downside to having such a large army is that orders are relayed very slowly to the troops on the front, meaning that the Kushan do not have the time to organize a defense against the Band of the Falcon.

An army of foot soldiers charge into the Kushan forces' rear, led by Zodd. The Kushan general is overwhelmed by the appearance of this new, relentless army.

Next to arrive are Grunbeld and his own force of hulking soldiers. They begin a brutal, effortless slaughter of the Kushan war elephants.
