  • The Battle of the Drill was a battle fought outside the Outer Wall of Ba Sing Se during the War. It was an assault by the Fire Nation using a drill, a massive device solely intended to drill a path through Ba Sing Se's massive walls to allow for a larger invasion. The Drill was destroyed and the Fire Nation thus defeated due to the intervention of Team Avatar.
  • Since the beginning of the War, the Fire Nation had searched for a way to conquer the capital of the Earth Kingdom, Ba Sing Se; however, all previous attempts had failed. The country hoped that, by conquering the city, the Earth Kingdom would be severely crippled once the Council of Five and the Earth King were taken out of power. A successful subjugation also meant conquering the last safe place for refugees displaced by the War. Late in the War, the Fire Nation forced a refugee and Earth Kingdom mechanist to make weapons, including the drill, to aid them in battles by threatening to burn his home if he refused.

abstract
  • Since the beginning of the War, the Fire Nation had searched for a way to conquer the capital of the Earth Kingdom, Ba Sing Se; however, all previous attempts had failed. The country hoped that, by conquering the city, the Earth Kingdom would be severely crippled once the Council of Five and the Earth King were taken out of power. A successful subjugation also meant conquering the last safe place for refugees displaced by the War. Late in the War, the Fire Nation forced a refugee and Earth Kingdom mechanist to make weapons, including the drill, to aid them in battles by threatening to burn his home if he refused. The mechanist successfully designed the drill, a gigantic mechanism that was nearly impossible to destroy and could breach the walls of Ba Sing Se with ease. The Fire Nation hoped that by breaching the walls, they would be able to set a path for their army to advance and finally conquer the great city.
