Police units are also on the scene, building barricades and manning the mobile anti-aircraft guns. The Cubans manage to only secure two beaches, after a heated battle for Miami. The CU is at the entrance to Palm Beach, but almost 400,000 AEA troopers and tanks push the enemy back to their ships. They capture 20,000 Cuban troops before the ships leave the beach. Meanwhile, the AEA Navy is winning the battle, with only 17 ships sunk, but the CU has lost 51. Most of the sunk ships were due to mines, and the CU retreats.

AEA forces wait until the 22 to counterattack and drive the CU off American land.
