    Are you taking about the ships? About a dozen X-Wings and one U-Wing slip through before they close the gate.

    The gate that they didn't allow a transport ship through without a clearance code?

    They were incognito at that point. The Xwings were just in invasion mode. The gate is normally open because it's a pain to open and close. Before they could close it some rebel ships made it in after that it was closed and caused all the trouble for the rebel spies. That's my understanding anyway.
    This aggression will not stand, man!

    They had engaged their cloaking device and sneaked in unseen

    I watched again and will accept that answer with some serious skepticism.

    That makes as much sense as waiting until someone approaches your house before turning on the burglar alarm, or until you smell smoke before turning on the fire alarm, especially if the alarm are such a pain to turn off and on that 13 bad guys could get into your house before you get the alarm activated.

    Nah, it made sense in the context of the movie. I actually just watched it again last night. The whole point was the main group was going to be infiltrating while the rest ran a diversion on the perimeter of the data comms tower and above Scarif. They wanted to spread the forces around the islands to give the main team a fighting chance. They wanted it to "seem" like an assault that was just trying to hit a military installation when in fact the REAL mission was getting the Death Star Plans. Pretty classic war maneuver for sabotage and subterfuge type missions. Remember Krennic didn't even get involved until he found out Jyn was making her way to the plans repository, then even Vader had to step in and he was pretty pissed off at that point.

    Look up Hutier Tactics and just imagine the clean up crew would be Rebel Spies:

    Hutier tactics

    Named for the German general of the infantry Oskar von Hutier, infiltration attacks began with brief and violent bombardments of the enemy front lines, to suppress and demoralize enemy combatants stationed there. The bombardment also targeted enemy rear areas to destroy or disrupt roads, artillery, and command units.

    This was done to confuse the enemy, and reduce their capability to launch effective counterattacks from secondary defense lines. For maximum effect, the exact points of attack remained concealed until the last possible moment.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Infiltration_tactics

    Jyn and company never really started their mission until the bombardment and battle was in full effect.
