The Neo Band of the Hawk has completed its ascent up the steep cliff face. Led by Griffith, the cavalry charge into the Kushan flank, who barely have time to react at all. 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 Hawks.
An army of Hawk footsoldiers charge into the Kushan forces' rear, led by Nosferatu 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 - and effortless - slaughter of the Kushan war elephants.
