The Battle of Hustont was an engagement during the latter half of the Locust War. In early 10 A.E., as part of the build up for their planned assault on Ephyra, the Locust emerged in the town of Hustont, near the Jacinto Plateau. Hustont had been used to help relocate Ostrini refugees who arrived in COG territory after the Hammer of Dawn Counterattack, and thus had a majority Ostrini population. When the town came under attack, two former units of the 46th Ostrini Infantry quickly responded. Unfortunately, the roughly two hundred Gears were met with a force of over three thousand Locust. Despite putting up a valiant effort, the Locust managed to overrun the town in only three days, but not before dealing tremendous casualties to the COG forces.
