The Battle of Pikachurin is the seventh battle of the Jihad War of the United States of JBR. It was the first battle officially engaged by the Pikachurin Search and Rescue Team (PSRT) and took place at Fort Espérance, New Disparu. The word espérance means "hope" in French and is commonly called "Fort Hope" and because of this, the battle has received an informal nickname as Battle for Hope.
On 4:22 PM local time, the PSRT forces were patrolling over a vast land of wilderness in the territory of New Disparu and entered the area of their deployed area. Reported sightings of the Pikachurins were quickly flowing into the local authorities and one county sheriff suspected suspicious activity in a small, unincorporated community known as Fort Espérance; just 54 miles west of Jubilife. The sheriff explained to the PSRT about mysterious uniformed men were constantly circling the fort and were all armed. The sheriff contacted PSRT and the PSRT immediately responded.
On 4:26, the first gunshots were fired at the PSRT and suddenly a small legion of soldiers emerged from the town. There was also several armored vehicles that were equipped with automatic firearms and opened fire upon PSRT. PSRT alerted a nearby air force base about the attack and 25 helicopters were sent. The PSRT began shooting back and two Pro-AIL force leaders emerged. By 4:37, Swalli ab-Liiya, a man responsible for the recent Ociania Bombing and Francis Roy, FBI-wanted kidnapper of the Pikachurins; ordered their troops to retreat and had Fort Espérance burned.
Stewart and Morella pursued after the retreating forces and their 11,000 men and 25 helicopters launched a manhunt upon retreating forces. A sergeant shot Francis Roy's left leg and several Pro-AIL forces carried him away from being captured. On 4:42, Stewart and Morella saw a brief glimpse of the captives, the Pikachurins, who were attempting to escape but were quickly pushed into an armored truck and driven away. Unknowingly to the Pro-AIL forces, Morella aimed and fired a micro-GPS onto the armored truck to track down the trail of the Pro-AIL forces. The battle was ultimately a victory to the Pro-JBRican Forces by 4:46.
