What was really gained at Twycross by the FedCom? Beyond realizing they could fight the Clans if they used larger forces and better tactics, what did the FedCom gain from their fighitng on Twycross?

Doolittle Raid.

It made the Clan feel vulnerable for the first time.

Good point. I can see the parallel there.

Not only that, but if memory serves the Falcons had to pull front-line soldiers away from the invasion to retake it, thereby helping to blunt their offensive.

It is a tactic often used in war. Hit your enemy in a place that they feel safe.. As someone mentioned the Doolittle raid, or even the bombing mission that the English sent to bomb Berlin which changed the whole focus of the German bombing strategy. Historians pick that raid as one of the major turning points of the battle of Britain. Had the Germans kept bombing air bases and manufacturing plants, England was in a world of hurt. Instead they decided to go after London, which let the airbases and plants catch their breath and recover.
