The tempo of combat operations continued at a steady pace.

Chernarus Defense, Naval and air forces have engaged in four operations in three regions.

1) 2nd Bn Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered for the second time in two weeks to launch a counterattack against separatists holding Ahmsdorf in Werferlingen, Friday night.

Ahmsdorf is part of the defensive line being held by separatist forces. The area south of that line is a contested area characterized by near constant enemy probes south.

Included in the orders to eject separatist forces from town was a task to eliminate two of the operatives who were commanding the enemy force, Grigoriy Bukharinn and Stanija Babovic. Electronic intercepts and messages about this command group indicated they were planning to cleanse the town of opponents.

The tactical plan was for the two tanks to attack from the south, as the infantry and recon elements pressed from the east. The two rifle squads became bogged down from enemy fire, forcing command squad to penetrate the town alone.

Enemy riflemen were holed up in several buildings, forcing the squad to clear each one, room by room. When the commander came to the building housing the criminal command group, they were eliminated. Documents were taken from the dead body of Babovic.

Enemy reinforcements were very light. The commander quickly pushed north to a site where a dead drop had taken place, and retrieved the documents. Battalion recon staff said the documents contained data taken from a major's laptop computer by a friendly informant.

The task force then was ordered south out of town, and as they moved out, two enemy technicals appeared. They were destroyed by tanks covering the retreat.

Casualties were light. 2nd squad lost one.

2) Recon staff from 2nd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to Ribbenstedt in Werferlingen to intercept a large separatist mobile force heading for that area Saturday.

Last week, 2nd Bn launched a relief operation after a 43rd Mountain Rifle Corps recon rifle group became stranded in town. Casualties were light. The relief operation was a success.

The tactical plan for the meeting engagement was for a solid line of forces lined up east to west. Tanks and armored scout cars on the wings, with the rifles in the center.

The first contact was with infantry on the eastern wing of the defensive line. Firefights were very intense, but the enemy was stopped. A similar enemy probe attacked the left wing. That one was much more successful.

During this time, separatists set up a light armor block south of the river at Horsingen. One fuel truck suffered a crew hit, but the other passed on to Horsingen and to safety.

Enemy armor hit our armor block on the eastern wing, and at the western wing. But enemy armor overran the left wing causing that defensive node to collapse.

The commander declared the mission outcome doubtful, and ordered a retreat. Relieving forces were on their way, but they would not arrive in time to salvage the situation.

One tank was ordered to cover the right wing as those forces retreated. The commander deemed it prudent not to try to penetrate the enemy's positions in the west to attain a local superiority. The remainder of the force was withdrawn.

At the enemy armor block the relief force tank destroyed the armor block, enabling commander to retreat back to base.

Casualties were heavy. One tank and one BRDM was destroyed. 2nd squad was completely wiped out, and 3rd squad was whittled down to five. Command squad lost one.

Enemy armor losses were heavy as well. Field count were one T-55, one T-34/85, one BMP-2, one BMP-1, and two BRDM scout cars destroyed.

3) A rifle task force formed from 1st Bn Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to recapture the village of Msta in Chernarus Monday night.

Separatist forces captured the village early Monday morning. They were led by the commanders Ferid Murad and Ann Allilueyeva, both of whom were experienced fighters, who served with the rebels from the 2009 civil war. They did not hold commands at the time.

Msta was the subject of a separate operation last month, when CDF forces retook the town, but suffered heavy casualties. As in the January operation, separatists took prisoners, this time three civilian aid workers.

The tactical plan was to split the task force into two, and attack from two directions, 90 degrees apart, in an effort to avoid separatist artillery. As in the last operation, one BRDM scout car was held back for transport of released prisoners.

Command squad with the heavy machine gun fire support of one BRDM attacked into town from the southwest, while the rest of the task force hit it from the southeast. Enemy counterfire was very heavy. An enemy RPG gunner destroyed the assisting BRDM.

Once in town, command squad pushed towards the criminal command element's housing, clearing out buildings along the way. The criminal command element was eliminated after Allilueyeva tried to run, but instead ran into 2nd and 3rd squads.

The commander seized documents from Allilueyeva's person.

The released prisoners refused to be evacuated with the task force. Fearing the arrival of enemy reinforcements, the commander decided to retreat from town and leave the civilians to their fate.

Casualties were heavy. 2nd and 3rd squad lost seven each and were folded into one unit, then ordered to retreat back to base. One BRDM was destroyed, and the covering SU-25 ground interdiction fighter was shot down with the loss of the crew.

4) 1st Bn Chernarus 24th Separate Light Mountain Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack Location 2790,4081 in Summa. The location is one of a string of outposts manned by separatists.

The location defensive node was commanded by separatist operatives Aleksandr Evtushenko and Irina Shayk, but of whom recently came to the attention of operations staff. Shayk was known to carry detailed documents on the separatist plans for the region on her person.

Additionally, local friendly operatives recently planted a dead drop of documents stolen from separatists commanders.

The attack began as all three rifle elements advanced on the location from the southeast on a narrow front. Two BRDM scout cars were run forward to help provide heavy machine gun fire support for the attack operation.

The location had three bunkers, all three of which were cleared out, despite heavy losses by the task force. Initially, artillery played a role in eliminating technicals in the area, enabling the task force to close and destroy.

Once resistance from the separatists collapsed, the command set about locating Shayk, and seizing the important documents she kept on her person. The commander also located and took the documents left at the dead drop.

By the time the withdraw order came down, enemy technicals had infiltrated in from the north. Their arrival caused great damage to the rifles. One BMP-2 was positioned as a block to command squad retreating.

The commander ordered an artillery smoke mission to cover their retreat back to base.

Casualties were heavy. 2nd squad was wiped out and 3rd squad lost seven, Command squad lost five.

From: Chernarus Coastal Operations Group
Subject: Weekly Summary of Combat Operations, from February 12th to February 18th, Inclusive.

Message begins:

The tempo of combat operations continued at a decreased pace.

Chernarus Defense, Naval and air forces have engaged in four operations in three regions.

1) A task force assembled from 1st Bn Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to Ahmsdorf in Werferlingen, to attack and clear the town of separatist forces Friday evening.

Battalion recon staff found out about the occupation from a variety of sources, including informants. The occupation of Ahmsdorf was led by two separatist commanders, Pavel Belobodorov and Nina Ivanovic, and included two heavy MRAP vehicles.

Separatists took over Ahmsdorf five weeks ago, but a CDF counterattack drove separatist forces back. A counterattack by separatist forces on Rennau later the same day also was driven back.

Among the tasks assigned to the task force was the elimination of the two criminal operatives, and then locate a dead drop of documents stolen from separatist military sources.

The task force attacked from the east on a broad front, with 3rd squad advancing in the south, 2nd squad in the north and command squad attacking along the road. Both tanks were ordered to attack from the south.

The attacks went very smoothly. 3rd squad encountered heavy fire from one of the MRAPs and separatist infantry , but they were well supported by tank gun fire. Command squad penetrated into the town's security zone, located the two operatives and eliminated them.

With backing from one tank and one BRDM scout car, command squad pushed north to the dead drop and retrieved the documents. That accomplished, the command ordered a retreat south to Rennau.

As it transpired, only 2nd squad had trouble evacuating the town, owing to a damaged BTR. By this time darkness had fallen and separatist armor arrived. Commander ordered artillery missions to smoke up 2nd squad's position.

Commander ordered both task force tanks back into Ahmsdorf to eliminate separatist armor. RPG gunners and grenadiers destroyed the enemy BRDM and T-34/85. When 2nd squad attempted to leave, its route was blocked by a separatist BTR-80A.

One of the tanks fired on and destroyed the BTR-80A, enabling 2nd squad to continue its retreat south.

Casualties were moderate. 2nd squad lost three, while 3rd squad lost six. Field reports are that the separatists lost three armor vehicles, not including the MRAPS, but including a T-34/85.

2) A recon element from 43rd Mountain Rifle Corps was ordered to probe the area around Ribbenstedt in Werferlingen late Monday night.

43rd Mountain Rifle Corps agreed with the assessment of recon staffs from a week ago which concluded that the separatists were planning to maintain a defensive line at Werferlingen-Ribbenstedt-Behnsdorf.

The probe triggered an enemy response. As the enemy began to mass for an attack, the recon elements called for a relief operation. A hastily assembled task force from 2nd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Rifle Brigade was ordered to Ribbenstedt to evacuate friendly forces.

In relief operations, it is paramount that as many mobile elements get to the relieving force as quickly as possible. In this operation, two tanks and two BRDM scout cars arrived in the scene first.

By the time the whole of the task force arrived, one of the two rifle squads were wiped and the other was cut down to half strength. The task force elements took up positions to allow the remaining squad and the crew of an abandoned technical to be evacuated.

Command squad engaged two enemy rifle probes which bore down on Ribbenstedt from the north. Fire from friendly rifles, their BTRs and BRDMs quickly destroyed the attacks. The remaining relieved force were evacuated safely from Ribbenstedt.

The commander of the task force then ordered his forces to retreat south to Eshenrode to take up defensive positions along the rail road tracks north of Hodingen. All forces retreated in good order.

Casualties were light. 2nd squad lost one. The relieved force lost five and one technical.

Enemy vehicle losses were very heavy. Field counts of enemy vehicles losses included one T-55 tank, two t-35/85 tanks, and one BTR-80A.

3) A rifle element from 1st Bn Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack Vybor in Chernarus Wednesday night. The village was taken over by separatists the previous morning.

Vybor was attacked by 1st Bn twice. The first attack resulted in a 93 percent casualty rate and was a failure. 4th Brigade operations staff determined that a combination of heavy MRAPS defending in town and the early arrival of enemy reinforcements cost the successful conclusion of the operation.

Additionally, command squad lost four in a separatist artillery attack in the approach march. The approach march was concentrated with all three rifle squads approaching in line in a tight formation.

The second attack, pressed only 30 mins after the first one, was a total success. The approach march was far more dispersed. Command squad approach this time from the south west, while the other squads approach from the south, thereby avoiding separatist artillery fire.

The main mission in both attacks was the elimination of the criminal operatives, Vladimir Rozhin and Anastasia Shanina. They ordered the detention of citizens they suspected would cause them trouble.

Three of the detainees were in fact informants for the Chernarus military, specifically 4th Brigade. The informants were given burner phones to report on enemy activity.

The three were released and evacuated aboard one of the two BRDM scout cars which served as heavy machine gun fire support. The commander also eliminated the criminal command group, and extracted documents from the dead body of Shanina.

The task force retreated in good order south. No friendly casualties were reported.

4) An amphibious detachment from 1st Bn, Chernarus 2nd Naval Infantry Brigade was ordered to attack and recapture the town of Crna bara in Deniland Thursday afternoon.

Recon staff from Chernarus Coastal Operations Group detailed a report where a separatist force entered the town the evening before, and were planning to impose their rule on the villagers.

The marine group, aside the task of clearing the town of separatists, was ordered to eliminate the two commanders who led the takeover, Nikolay Zmajevic and Olesya Mahendru.

Three naval infantry rifle squads aboard three assault boats traveled up river accompanied by a motor torpedo boat, there to provide heavy machine gun fire support.

The tactical plan for the attack was for command squad to head directly for the hideout of the commanders, while the other two squads probed on the south end of the town.

Enemy technicals fired and hit 2nd squad as it began its operation, causing it to lose seven effectives. 3rd squad by this time had only just dismounted their boat and began to head inland.

Command squad began to clear buildings in the middle of the enemy's defensive zone, including the two technicals. The building housing the operatives was found and they were eliminated. Documents were seized.

Another task assigned to the marine rifle group was the elimination of a mortar battery, but command squad was unable to locate the mortars.

Commander issued a retreat order after clearing the town. Casualties were moderate, with 2nd squad losing eight, and command squad losing its commander.

The tempo of combat operations continued at an increased pace.

Chernarus Defense, Naval and air forces have engaged in six operations in three regions.

1) Friday morning, 2nd Bn Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack and clear the town of Eschenrode in Werferlingen.

Enemy presence in that vicinity had included separatists capturing Werferlingen two weeks ago, three kilometers to the west, and Ribbenstedt one week ago, four kilometers to the north.

Brigage recon staff concluded that the separatists planned to hold the line Werferlingen-Ribbenstedt-Behnsdorf, and would launch probes and attacks to the south.

Separatists had established an antiaircraft battery to the northwest of town, and were in the beginning stages of clearing out political opponents. As a result, battalion commander ordered the elimination of the two top commanders of the operation, Viktor Kaba and Lyudmila Grigorieva.

The weather was clear but very cold, and given the location, the tactical plan was to rush the town from the east and speedily penetrate the separatists' defensive zone in the town.

Both 2nd squad and 3rd squad encountered heavy enemy resistance, as did command squad. 2nd squad was ordered to move west through town in the south, 3rd squad in the north.

When the infantry group arrived on the western edge of town, they became pinned down by heavy AA fire, and enemy rifle counterfire. The intervention of Tank 2, originally positioned to the southwest, destroyed the AA guns.

The commander was killed, so his second in command continued the operation, locating and eliminating the two operatives. Some intelligence documents were seized.

After receiving the order to retreat, the acting commander ordered the task force to retreat east to Horsingen, and established a defensive front there.

Just as the last infantry squad was leaving, enemy armor arrived. The task force escaped town by minutes.

Casualties were very heavy. 2nd squad lost six, while 3nd squad lost seven. One tank was destroyed by a BTR-80, and one scout car was destroyed by enemy RPG gunners.

2) Saturday morning a task force from 1st Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to Mariental (Horst) in Werferlingen to defend against an expected armored attack by separatists. This attack operation by separatists was the first to go south of Grasleben in many weeks.

The tactical plan was for the task force, including reinforcing units, to form a solid line running northeast to southwest to catch separatist forces from entering town.

Two enemy infantry attacks took place on the west side of the line early in the defensive operation, around the positions of command squad and 2nd squad. Those attacks were stopped.

Enemy vehicle attacks began shortly thereafter, in repeated fashion. Tanks covered the western edge of the line, catching a number of enemy vehicles. Field counts were: three destroyed BRDMs, four BMPs, two T-55s, and one T-34/85.

When the order to withdraw came, the commander ordered the task force to retreat to Mariental.

Casualties were moderate. 2nd squad lost two and command squad lost two. One of the relieving BTR squad's BTR was destroyed along with four of their squad.

3) A private contractor team went to Deniland with the task for destroying a helicopter owned by Wagner PMC Sunday morning.

The team was wiped out when they attempted to clear a village.

4) A private contractor team was sent to a location in Deniland to destroy separatist assets and to clear an area on Wednesday.

Overall, the mission was successful, but costly with half the team lost.

5) Thursday morning a Chernarus Defense Forces spetsnaz team was ordered to eliminate an enemy operative in Summa. An subsequent mission was ordered to locate and destroy an enemy technical.

Both missions were completed successfully without the losses.

6) A rifle group formed from elements of 1st Bn Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack and recapture the village of Orlovets early Thursday morning.

The village was taken over by a separatist force commanded by Jovan Koncerevic and Nina Ivanovic Wednesday morning. Battalion recon staff had very little information about this criminal command group, the assumption being the two operatives were new.

Also at Orlovets was an AA battery consisting of three ZU-23 AA guns, which were ordered to be destroyed.

The tactical plan was for 3rd squad to attack and destroy the AA battery, which was positioned on the west side of the village. 2nd squad would penetrate to the middle of Orlovets and then turn northwest to hold the town against potential enemy reinforcements coming from the northwest.

Command squad would attack the western side,. then execute a turning movement to the southeast. Their main task would be the elimination of the criminal command group.

In the approach march, command squad was caught in the impact zone of separatist artillery fire, losing four before they even got to the village. Command squad encountered heavy resistance as they moved towards the criminal command group's hide out.

When 3rd squad refused to attack the AA guns, command squad took a hand in the task, but lost all but two. Overall command of the operation was then passed to the commander of 3rd squad, which also lost all but two.

By the time the AA guns were destroyed, separatist reinforcements arrived and did considerable damage. Command squad and 3rd squad were effectively wiped out, leaving 2nd squad alone.

The SU-25 ground interdiction fighter assigned to the mission was shot down, and the pilot bailed out safely.

2nd squad retreated from Orlovets, and had rescued the downed fighter pilot. The pilot was boarded aboard one of the BRDM for evacuation.

The mission was completed successfully, but at a heavy cost with 22 of 31 dead.

The tempo of combat operations continued at a decreased pace.

Chernarus Defense, Naval and air forces have engaged in five operations in four regions.

1) 2nd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized rifle Brigade rushed a task force to Werferlingen city to evacuate two rifle squads and two technicals stranded and facing an attack by separatist forces.

The rifle squads and technicals sent to Werferlingen city were sent there as a probe to test separatist defense and response times. This is the third probe in Werferlingen city in three weeks and the fifth in that general region.

Separatist forces attacked the rail yard where most of the rifle units were deployed, throwing infantry as well as BMPs at them. Friendly tanks were on the scene first followed by the BRDM scout cars.

The tactical plan was to move 2nd and 3rd squad across the river on the south bridge, while command squad supported by one tank would take the middle bridge. Command was planning on hitting enemy forces in a concentric attack.

When command squad arrived on the southern outskirts of Werferlingen, the two other rifle squads were retreating south. An enemy BTR-80A had attacked 2nd and 3rd squad, inflicting infantry losses on 3rd squad.

Command squad dismounted and began to push north., All three of the task force's BTRs were lined up like bowling pins, when a separatist T-34/85 arrived, destroying 3rd squad and command squad's BTRs. A frantic counterfire by command squad's RPG gunners and grenadiers put the tank out of action.

2nd and 3rd squad were ordered to the south bridge, while the two T-72s were ordered to cross the bridge and link up with the two rifle squads, now cut down to a total of five effectives. The two relieved rifle squad were ordered to cross the south bridge and head to a rendezvous point where evacuation trucks were waiting.

By the time the repair truck arrived to repair the enemy BTR-80A, the remnants of one rifle squad were on their way back to our lines. The sole survivor of the other squad refused to board a truck and was folded into command squad.

3rd squad then was ordered to evacuate aboard one of the scout cars, as they retreated south. The remainder of the task force retreated south one kilometer.

While the operation was successful, casualties were moderate. Command squad lost its BTR and its gunner, while 3rd squad lost nine effectives, including its BTR.

2) 1st Bn Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to Gross Steinum in Werferlingen early Saturday morning after brigade recon staff indicated a probable enemy attack.

The tactical plan for deployment was a northward facing arc intended to catch any attempt by separatists to enter the town.

The western wing of the deployment was attacked by a rifle squad, whch was stopped by Tank 1. The remainder of the time in town experienced no other attacks or probes by enemy forces.

The deployment was a case of faulty intelligence. The task force was ordered to retreat three kilometers southeast to Supplingenburg.

No casualtes were suffered in the operation.

3) An armored task force formed from elements of 2nd Bn, Chernarus 33rd Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to Hitlersreid in western Cham to intercept a separatist mobile force.

Battalion recon staff determined a separatist force was advancing to Hitlersrief based on reports by local agents and by radio intercepts.

The tactical deployment was the infantry group would deploy in a short arc about 600 meters long, with one tank on the east covering a road and one tank in the middle covering a northern road.

Attacks by separatist forces began almost immediately, starting with attacks by technicals, then by a technical and a BRDM scout car.

A heavy infantry attack were pressed against the position of 3rd squad, which cost 3rd squad a damaged BTR and four dead. Command squad moved their position up to backstop 3rd squad, to eliminate the enemy attack.

But the main action was separatist armor attempting to bypass the armor block on the eastern road. The tank covering that road suffered a mobility hit, so command ordered the other tank east to backstop their position.

Casualties were moderate, with 2nd squad losing two and 3rd squad losing eight. Both 3rd squad's BTR and a tank were repaired in the field, and were withdrawn abut a kilometer south when the retreat order came down.

The separatist mobile group was heavily smashed with three destroyed techicals. Field counts include three destroyed BRDM scout cars, three BMPs and two tanks.

4) A rifle group from 1st Bn Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack Guglovo Sunday night after discovering the hamlet was overtaken by separatist forces the morning before.

Among the tasks assigned to the rifle group was the elimination of a pair of separatist operatives, Viktor Kaba and his second in command Anastasia Shanina, both of whom were planning to assist subsequent separatist operations.

The tactical plan was for 2nd and 3rd squads to attack from the east, while command squad attacked from the west. Both BRDM scout cars would provide heavy machine gun fire support to command squad's push into Guglovo.

In the initial approach march, command squad lost two to separatist artillery fire. In the push to enter the village, command squad engaged in an intense firefight with separatist infantry patrols, losing two.

On the eastern flank, 2nd and 3rd squad continued to apply pressure from the east, with 3rd squad losing two.

Once inside the separatists' defensive zone in the hamlet, resistance collapsed quickly. The commander located Shanina and exchanged gunfire with her. The commander was wounded in the exchange, but Shanina was killed.

The commander stripped Shanina of important intelligence documents. Command squad lost another two in the fighting, including the commander while room clearing. The second in command destroyed supply trucks separatists had placed there the morning before.

The rifle group was encountered by another separatist quick reaction force, which was stopped by the rifle group counterfire. With the town cleared, the retreat order came down. 2nd and 3rd squads left first, then the BRDMs, and then command squad.

As command squad was leaving, another separatist rapid reaction force arrived, and partially pursued command squad south.

Losses were moderate with command squad losing six and 3rd squad losing two. Recon staff for Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade will begin analyzing the documents seized from Shanina.

5) A joint operation including special forces from Chernarus Defense Forces and the Kurdish YPG, and combat aviation of the Army of the Czech Republic, took place Wednesday night in Reshmaan province.

Chernarus spetsnaz teams had been sent to Reshmaan to help dismantle criminal enterprises being set up and run by Russian and Serbian speaking contractors.

The operation was centered around the hamlet of Jabirah where two lead contractors, Boris Yurinov and Anna Alliluyeva, were conducting a campaign of terror against local residents.

NATO intelligence said that the group had only recently massacred a number of civilians, and were planning to dig their forces in at Jabirah.

Flying air cover were two Czech Republic MI-35 attack helicopters, one assigned to directly attack vehicles in town and the other assigned to cover any quick reaction forces trying to get through to Jabirah.

The Czech Republic forces also provided two technicals for the operation.

The tactical plan was for the two YPA special forces groups to attack and clear Jabirah on its west side, while the CDF team pushed in through the east side.

YPG Team 2 ran into a buzzsaw, eventually losing four out of the seven in their team. Air cover and YPG Team 3 intervened and eliminated further threats to Team 2.

The commander pushed his team on to the building housing the criminal command group, and eliminated them and their security detail. The commander seized documents from the person of Anna Alliluyeva.

Pushing yet further north, the commander located and recorded the hasty mass grave containing the murdered civilians, then ordered all teams out.

As the command team was leaving two enemy infantry teams were bearing down on the team.

Casualties were moderate, with Team 2 losing four dead.

From: Chernarus Coastal Operations Group
Subject: Weekly Summary of Combat Operations, from January 22nd to January 28th, Inclusive.

Message begins:

The tempo of combat operations continued at an increased pace.

Chernarus Defense, Naval and air forces have engaged in six operations in three regions.

1) Early Saturday morning a hastily assembled task force from 2nd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to Ribbonsdorf with the task of relieving troops stranded there by enemy attacks.

One week ago, forces from 2nd Bn were ordered to Ribbenstedt (2 kms SW of Rbbensdorf) to defend against a separatist attack. Casualties in that operation were moderate. Brigade command ordered a light rifle contingent from 3rd Bn to probe north into Ribbensdorf to assess enemy activity.

In relief operations, the central requirement is for the task force to send as many mobile troops in the area as possible. As it happened, one tank and both BRDM scout cars arrived on scene quickly.

The other tank had a traffic accident, so its crew was picked up by command squad. The crew were evacuated along with the other two trucks used for evacuating the stranded troops.

However, but the time the infantry arrived, both squads were wiped out, along with two technicals. A small remnant of enemy infantry were left, and they were dispatched quickly.

Command received a report that at least one enemy BRDM scout car was positioned south of Ribbenstedt. Commander sent both scout cars to the position. Both were destroyed by tank gunfire, so there were more than just a BRDM at the location.

Commander sent one tank from the forward zone and one tank from the area of operation to locate the enemy armor. The tank was a T-34/85, which managed to inflict a mobility hit on the task force's tank before being destroyed.

Casualties were moderate, with two BRDMs destroyed and one tank destroyed in a traffic accident. The remaining tank was repaired and sent on its way to the forward zone.

2) Early Monday morning, Chernarus Defese Forces spetsnaz team attached to Chernarus 1st Army Corps was ordered to Tisy in far northern Chernarus to eliminate a pair of separatist commanders.

The commanders, Enver Kadare and Valentina Blavatsky were in Tisy to assist a separatist rifle unit to rest and refit. The commanders also had worn their welcome thin with the locals with arbitrary arrests and prisoner abuse.

The team was inserted in a field by an army MI-24 attack bird one kilometers southeast of Tisy, from where they proceeded to the objective.

Once the other element of air support, an MI-24 gunship began its attack run, the team attacked the town. An intense firefight developed as the team headed to the criminal command group hideout, as the gunship engaged and destroyed two technicals.

The team commander found and eliminated both operatives and their security detail. He also seized documents from Blavatsky's dead body. After determining the criminal command team was eliminated, he ordered the team south to its extraction point.

The extract bird crash landed east of the pickup point. The crew survived and then was ordered to rendezvous with the ground team.

The backup extraction bird, the gunship, after fighting off separatist rapid reaction forces, crashed just north of the extraction point with the loss of all hands.

The commander ordered the team south of Novaya Petrovka, where the commander commandeered a truck. During the ride back to Balota airfield, the team encountered, but did not engage an enemy patrol.

There were no losses to the ground team. Air support lost both birds and an aircrew.

3) A naval infantry contingent from Chernarus 2nd Naval Infantry Brigade successfully defended aganst a separatist attack early Tuesday morning in Giswil in Napf.

The defense base at Giswil was taken and has been held by Chernarus naval infantry since 2017. The deployment is a block against separatist vehicles which are used sometimes to attack Brienz.

Giswil can only be resupplied by a weekly supply run using pack horses. The separatists routinely patrol the sea around Giswil, and sometimes attack in conjunction with overland attacks.

4) A Chernarus army spetsnaz team was ordered to eliminate a pair of separatist commanders in far northern Chernarus 2020, Wednesday morning.

Jovan Duka and Eva Dushku were busily setting up as transshipment point in Novaya Petrovka for the purpose of supplying separatist offensives further south.

The five man team was inserted about one kilometer south of the area of operation, which was the railyards. Providing air cover was one MI-24 gunship tasked with destroying heavy vehicles and enemy infantry.

In the initial penetration of the enemy's defensive zone, a firefight developed which pitted the team against an enemy rifle squad. Very heavy counterfire from the team ended the firefight and allowed the team to proceed to the railyards.

The commander located and eliminated both commanders, and their security detail. The commander also stripped intelligence documents from the dead body of Dushka.

The team retreated to the extraction point, but the extraction bird had crash landed about 500 meters northwest from the extraction point. The gunship providing air cover was called in to pickup the team. The aircrew joined the team and evacuated along with the team.

There were no casualties, and one destroyed helicopter.

5) A Chernarus army spetsnaz team was ordered to Sinystok in far northern Chernarus to extract a pair of friendly operatives early Thursday morning.

According to recon staff at Chernarus 1st Army Corps, the two operatives attempted to escape south, but were stopped by a separatist patrol.

The operatives escaped capture but wound up holed up in a warehouse in Sinystok. The separatists were beginning building to building searches to find the operatives.

The team was inserted about 800 meters south of Sinystok, and then they marched north. The air cover was called in to deal with the two technicals posted in town.

A firefight erupted between the team and the separatists only 400 meters from the operatives' hideout. Two team members were hit, but they were given first aid to continue.

The firefight ended just as the team reached the operatives' hideout. The commander recovered one female informant, but the other was missing and presumed killed by the separatists.

The team and the recovered informant extracted at a point just 300 meters south of Sinystok. They were returned to the naval aviation airfield at Balota.

The recovered informant will be debriefed by recon staffs with 1st Army Corps and Chernarus 19th Naval Recon Battalion.

The operation suffered no casualties.

6) A rifle group assembled from 2nd Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigde was ordered to attack and clear the village of Rogovo in Chernarus Thursday afternoon.

One of the tasks assigned to the rifle group was the elimination of two separatist operatives, Vladimir Rozhin and Bojana Dobrojevic, both of whom commanded the separatist group which occupied Rogovo since early Thursday morning.

This is the second town clearing operation since late December. In that operation, although it was successful, it also was costly with two BRDM scout cars destroyed and almost half the infantry killed.

As in the first operation, the tactical plan was for 2nd and 3rd squads to attack from the southeast, while command squad attacked from the southwest. The two BRDMs were parked in Pogorevka, just a few hundred meters south.

Command squad was hit by separatist artillery losing one in the advance on Rogovo. As command squad approached Rogovo, resistance stiffened. Commander called in an artillery strike on an enemy technical, destroying it with two shot.

Commander also ordered an artillery strike against an enemy rifle group holding a line south of Rogovo. From there, command squad entered town to begin the process of clearing it of separatists.

Both of the separatist commanders were killed, but commander could not find the corpse of Bojana Dobrojevic. She was part of the command element responsible for holding important documents.

Once the order came down to retreat, both 2nd and 3rd squad were ordered out of town, while command squad held its position. Moments later command squad began its retreat but ran into a separatist rapid reaction force, which was positioned as a block.

An intensive firefight developed. Command squad broke up the infantry block but suffered more casualties, including the commander.

3rd squad, meanwhile, retreated south one kilometer. 2nd squad became pinned down by enemy riflemen, and a BTR-80A. After a brief firefight which included the destruction of the BTR, 2nd squad shook off its attackers and continued its retreat south.

Losses were moderate. Command squad lost four, 2nd squad lost two and 3rd squad lost three. One SU-25 ground interdiction fighter was shot down. The pilot survived.

The tempo of combat operations continued at a Steady pace.

Chernarus Defense, Naval and air forces have engaged in three operations in two regions

1) Operations staff for 2nd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to defend Ribbenstedt in Werferlingen, after the staff concluded separatist forces would attempt to take the town from the march early Saturday morning.

Two battles have taken place in that vicinity in Werferligen, just three kilometers east in the last two weeks; one a friendly troop evacuation operation and one a general counterattack against separatist forces which had taken the town.

In December, Chernarus Defense Forces mobile forces defended Horsingen against a separatist attack, only to be overrun by separatist mobile forces.

Ribbenstedt is bisected by a river. The tactical plan was to deploy 2nd squad on the west side of the river, along with Scout 2 BRDM scout car, to defend the west against infantry attacks. Tanks and wheeled armor were not expected to attack from that direction.

3rd squad was to deploy near the gas station, near the intersection, while command squad near the bridge with Scout 1 deploy to deal with infiltrators. A small reinforcing element was ordered to town to assist.

Both tanks were deployed on the northern edge of town where most of the armor was expected to attack.

The first attacks were by two BRDM scout cars, both of which were destroyed by the tanks. A second armor group appeared from the north as well. Both were destroyed but not before eliminating six from command squad.

Infantry attacks commenced by the time, one from the north and one from the northwest, which were stopped. One T-34/85 tank entered the town from the west and destroyed Scout 2 before it was destroyed by RPG gun fire from 2nd squad.

Another T-34/85 tank along with an infantry attack pressed from the northwest. The T-34 destroyed command squad's BTR and the remaining crew. Commander deployed a relieving tank to the west to cover that approach.

Not sure what happened at that point, but a BTR-80A entered the town from the west, apparently with another BRDM scout car. The tank on the west side suffered a crew kill. The BRDM was destroyed.

When the order came down to withdraw command squad pushed across the bridge to a point to act as cover for 2nd squad to withdraw to the east. Command discovered the CDF tank was intact, and used it to destroy the BTR-80A.

Casualties were moderate. Command squad lost seven, and 2nd squad lost four. One BRDM scout car was destroyed, and one T-72 was recovered after the crew kill.

Separatists suffered as well with the loss of at least four BRDM scour cars, one BTR-80A and at least three T-34/85s.

2) Later Saturday afternoon, a task force assembled from 1st Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to north Graslaben in Werferlingen to intercept a separatist mobile force preparing to storm the town.

The weather was intermittent heavy snow, which was a factor in optics for both sides.

The tactical plan was for the task force to establish a broad arc northeast by northwest, concentrating on covering the main north-south road, said to be the most likely route into town.

3rd squad was to cover the northeast approach and would be supported by Scout 1 BRDM scout car. 2nd squad would take the western approach, and also supported by Scout 2. Command squad took the main road, covered by Tank 1.

Tank 2 covered the west approaches over open ground.

The separatists opened the battle by sending two BRDM scout cars and a rifle squad down the road. One of the scout car was destroyed by tank gunfire. The enemy infantry advance resulted in a 10 minute firefight.

The second scout car attempted to maneuver around command squad's position, but it too was caught by friendly tank gunfire. A second enemy rifle squad advanced but was stopped by counterfire from command squad, and by artillery fire.

No fewer than two BMP-1s attempted to penetrate the town defensive zone, both of which were stopped by tank gunfire. One T-34/85 tank came within 300 meters of 3rd squad's position, eliminating four plus the squad BTR. Scout 2 also was destroyed by the T-34.

The tank was eventually destroyed by 3rd squad RPG gunners and grenadiers, before 3rd squad attempted to retreat deeper into town.

Tank 2 was ordered to Tank 1's position, as Tank 1 was retasked to the open ground in front of command squad. No fewer than three more BMPs attempt to approach the town, but were destroyed by tank gunfire.

A third tank from the reinforcing element arrived in town and took up a position formerly held by Tank 2. Just as command squad was preparing to attack a T55, the order to retreat from Grasleben was issued.

Communications with the artillery battery were spotty, so smoke missions to cover the retreat of 3rd squad could not be ordered. 3rd squad was ordered to withdraw to rally1, just south of the railroad tracks.

The rest of the task force was ordered to retreat west of Mariental (Horst).

Casualties were moderate. Command squad lost three, while 3rd squad lost four. One BRDM scout car was destroyed. One tank suffered a mobility hit, but commander considered the situation too dangerous to attempt to cover a repair operation.

The crew were ordered to abandon the tank and join 3rd squad in its retreat south.

Separatist vehicle losses were heavy with two T-34/85s, five to six BMPs and three to four BRDMs destroyed.

3) A rifle group from 1st Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack the village of Msta in Chernarus Wednesday morning.

Two separatist commanders, Jovan Emmanuel and Ana Senicar led the force which took over the town just the night before. As part of their cleansing operation, the separatists took three locals imprisoned.

Battalion did not have the names of the prisoners, only that they included the mayor, her husband and her sister in law. Intel gathered from Msta said the separatists' plan was to execute the prisoners.

The tactical plan was for 2nd and 3rd squads to march to a point southeast of the village, with the objective of taking the northern edge of town and holding it against enemy counterattacks.

Command squad with one BRDM scout car would assault the village from the southwest. One BRDM would be held in reserve to transport the released prisoners.

At the outset, 3rd squad lost six effectives from artillery fire on the approach march. Command squad commenced its assault over open ground, but in an elevated position. The enemy rifles were concentrated in the southwest, so a firefight developed which killed the commander and his second in command.

The other infantry group took their designated position as command squad advanced into town under the covering fire of the BRDM. As command squad advanced, air cover in the form of one SU-25 ground interdiction fighter began to hit separatist technicals.

Once command squad close the hammer to the rifle group's anvil, resistance evaporated. Commander found Senicar and stripped her dead body of intelligence materials.

The commander then located and released the three prisoners, and assigned them to board the BRDM for transport. As the prisoners refused, a strong enemy counterattack arrived from the northwest. Another firefight developed, which eventually stopped the counterattack.

At the same time an enemy BRDM came into the area but was destroyed by air cover. When the order came down to pull out, the prisoners still refused to board the BRDM, so the commander ordered the BRDM commander to deal with them.

As the rest of the rifle group returned to base, a BTR-80A destroyed the reserve BRDM, and then the BRDM with the prisoners.

Casualties were heavy. Command squad lost four, while 3rd squad lost seven. Two BRDMs were destroyed.

The tempo of combat operations continued at a steady pace.

Chernarus Defense, Naval and air forces have engaged in four operations in three regions

1) A hastily assembled task force for 2nd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to Werferlingen to effect an evacuation of friendly troops facing a massed attack by separatists.

A similar operation was successfully conducted last week. This time two rifle squads and two technicals were sent to Werferlingen city to engage an enemy force preparing to attack.

In relief operations it is paramount to move as many mobile forces to the area of operation as possible, in order to limit damage to the relieving forces as much as possible.

Attacks against those forces were intense, so much as that by the time the cover element of the relief force arrived, both squad were down to a single element.

At that point the mission was a failure because one of the squads were wiped out. The relieving force commander decided to have a little payback.

The tactical plan was for 2nd squad, with one BRDM scout car, to move to the main highway bridge and place enemy forces there under fire. 3rd squad was ordered to the northwest bridge under the cover of the two tanks in the relief force.

Command squad would move to the southwest bridge, move across with a BRDM scout car providing heavy machine gun fire support, and roll up the flanks of enemy troops know to be there still.

After crossing the bridge command squad engaged several enemy foot mobiles. However, a T-34/85 tank appeared in the railyard. In attempting to direct friendly tanks to the area, the commander was killed.

At that point, he operation was aborted and the relief force retreated to the battalion forward zone.

2)1st Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was given the task to cover the evacuation of civilians from Gross Steinum in Werferlingen Saturday evening.

Earlier those citizens had complained to the town mayor about threats issued through text, email and from local separatist sympathizers threatening them bodily harm if they didn't give up money and food to local separatist groups.

The mayor charted a bus to evacuate the civilians, but the separatists warned they would attack if that plan was implemented.

The mayor prevailed on the brigade commander to cover the civilians' evacuation from the threats of attacks. The separatists warned they would attack within hours.

The assembled task force deployed along a broad arc in the north with one tank to the west, and one tank covering an inbound road and the rifles sections deploying in the town itself.

The attacks, when they came, were very light, but they were enough to inflict a mobility kill on the tank, and destroy a scout car moved there to cover for infiltrations.

When the two trucks evacuating the civilians cleared town safely, the task force was ordered to retreat to Supplingenburg and await further orders.

3) The first mission for 2nd Bn, Chernarus 24th Separate Light Mountain Rifle Brigade was to clear Gieraltow in Livionia Sunday morning, and to eliminate the two separate troop commanders who initiated the invasion of the town.

The march to Gieraltow took an hour and included two tanks from the brigade commander's personal guard and two BRDM scout cars from brigade recon company.

In the run up to the fight the rifle group encountered a separatist foot patrol outside of Nadbor. The patrol killed one in 2nd squad before they were eliminated.

The tactical plan was for all three rifle squads to advance along the main road into town, 3rd squad in the south, 2nd squad in the north and command squad along the road itself. Enemy counterfire was intense.

An AA gun, one of three assigned the force to be destroyed, destroyed a tank, but was itself destroyed by rifle squad. No other AA guns were present.

Ivan Platanov and a female assistant were killed by CDF forces. The deputy commander of command squad, who assumed overall command of the operation in the wake of the killing of the commander, took possession of the documents found on her person.

It was at that point enemy reinforcements started to appear. The force commander ordered the force to retreat to the crossroads halfway between Nadbor and Gieraltow. As the enemy closed to the task force, the commander was twice forced to rescue 3rd squad as it attempted to escape.

Casualties were moderate. Command squad lost three including the commander, 2nd squad lost two, and 3rd squad lost seven. One tank was destroyed by enemy action. The enemy lost at least one BRDM and both technicals posted to town.

4) A Chernarus Defense Forces special forces team, attached directly to Chernarus 2nd Rifle Corps was ordered to Karabatovo in Beketov to eliminate a pair of top separatist commanders.

The two commanders, Simeon Sevic and Dasha Bilyalova, were two of their top military trainers, sent to Karabatovo to round up recruits for the separatist forces.

The team inserted to their area of operation seamlessly and entered town just as the team's air cover, an army MI-24 gunship, arrived. The team located the house used by the commander. The team commander, however, was killed exchanging gunfire with the separatists' security detail.

The team's second in command completed the job, seized documents found on the dead body of Bilyalova, and returned to an extract point, where they were transported back to Chernarus 17th Separate Rifle Brigade headquarters.

No other casualties were reported in the operation.

There were no other casualties.

Chernarus Defense, Naval and air forces have engaged in three operations in two regions

1) On Friday afternoon in Werferlingen, an armored detachment of troops from 1st Bn Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack the town of Ahmstorf.

Bn recon staff discovered Ahmstorf was taken over by a separatist force, led by two criminal operatives Nikolay Zmajevic and Aferdita Nura. The commanders setup an anti aircraft unit well within 13th Brigade's security zone.

The task force's orders were to clear the town, eliminate the criminal command operatives and destroy the antiaircraft battery.

The tactical plan was for the two tanks to attack directly from the south over open terrain, while the motorized rifles and the scout cars were ordered to push in from the east. 3rd squad was ordered to attack on the southern edge, while 2nd squad was ordered to attack on the northern edge.

Command squad would attack along the east west road.

The attack went very quickly. The tanks destroyed the technicals known to be in town, and most of the infantry. Command squad eliminated the two criminal operatives. Commander seized documents on the person of Nura.

One of the tanks suffered fire control and mobility hits, so a repair truck was ordered in to affect repairs. No enemy reinforcements appeared. No tanks and no rifles.

The task force was withdrawn from town in good order with zero casualties.

2) Early Friday evening recon staff at Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade ordered an armored task force to Rennau, after it was learned that directly after the retreat from Ahmstorf, the separatists were massing an armor heavy force.

Electronic intercepts indicated the separatists were planning to force the river north of Rennau at two places, to take the town by storm.

The task force arrived and deployed a broad front, with tanks at the flanks and forward, one BRDM screening the west flank and one screening a forward area. 3rd squad deployed on the eastern edge of town, while 2nd squad took the west near the main crossroads in Rennau.

Infantry attacks commenced early on but were stopped by rifle and heavy machinegun fire and artillery fire. The came the armor.

The separatists made full use of the bridges north of Rennau, but mostly the west bridge. In the east, armor breaching the forward zone of the task force included two BRDMs, a T-34/85 tank and a BMP-1, all of which were destroyed by tank gun fire from both tanks.

The separatists made a stronger effort to cross the west bridge. By the time the orders came down to retreat, nearly six armor vehicles attempted to cross the bridge. All were destroyed. The tank gun fire was so heavy that the west bridge was rendered unusable.

One T-55 made it within 300 meters before it was destroyed by tank gun fire. The commander attempted to destroy any remaining infantry or armor vehicles by a massive artillery attack. The results were mixed.

The retreat went quickly, except for 2nd squad which came under fire from an infantry group which had infiltrated from the northwest. The commander ordered smoke artillery missions. However, one of the shots was HE artillery. 2nd squad lost seven effectives.

The only other casualty was one overturned tank and one tank crewman. Another tank dispatch to right the tank could right the tank. The tank was ordered abandoned and its crew was evacuated along with 3rd squad.

3) 2nd Bn Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to South Werferlingen city in Werferlingen Saturday night to locate and evacuate troops under threat of attack from the separatists.

Two rifle squads from 1st Bn were ordered to Rennau by the brigade commander following several firefights between rival groups. After a few hours of patrol the commander noticed separatists were edging close to them as they were patrolling.

In relief situations, the site commander must move as many mobile troops to the affected area as quickly as possible. Their task then is to advance in front of the relieved troops by 300 meters minimum to create a buffer, then evacuate them.

Tanks encountered some light armor vehicles and some rifle units. 2nd squad was ordered to advance to the east of town and 3rd squad adjacent to them. Command squad's assignment was to get directly in front of one of the squads and push forward as the squad retreats to its evacuation point.

Infantry attacks were sporadic. Both relieved squad boarded their trucks and were returned to the forward zone. All units retreated in good order.

Casualties were light. None of the relief forces lost personnel or vehicles. One of the relieved squads lost six.

On the return trip, command squad stumbled onto an enemy BMP near Wallbeck. Both tanks were called to the location, so the BMP was quickly destroyed.

The tempo of combat operations continued at a decreased pace.

Chernarus Defense, Naval and air forces have engaged in five operations in three regions

1) This is the first run through of a Deniland campaign. Chernarus amphibious naval infantry are the primary forces involved.

The scenario was an attack on Lukovo with three naval infantry squads, inserted by assault boat. The attack was successful. The command located and eliminated the two criminal operatives and their security detail.

The commander also found and recorded a mass execution site just north of town.

Bugs abounded in this run through, but the basic operation of the campaign file is good, yet needs some adjusting.

2) A Chernarus Naval Defense Forces 2nd Separate Naval Infantry Rifle group was tasked with attacking Markograd in Deniland after naval intelligence learned it was taken over by separatists Saturday evening.

Leading the separatist force which took over the town, were the criminal command group of Matija Depraradovich and Agnesa Lajcaj. Forces under their command had been terrorizing residents of Markograd including attests and kidnappings.

Commander of the naval task force ordered the naval infantry group to land by assault boat drive out the separatist forces, and eliminate the criminal command group. An additional task for the commander of the rifle group was to locate and find a dead drop of documents stolen from the separatists by local informants.

The task force attacked the town along a broad front moving north against heavy fire. 3rd squad took the left wing while 2nd squad took the right. Command squad immediately ran into two heavy machine gun technicals, which were quickly destroyed.

Heavy enemy fire continued as command squad advanced towards the hideout of the criminal command group. The commander located and eliminated Lajcaj and took documents from her person.

By then the task force had advanced to the main east-west road. 3rd squad was ordered to hold its position while command squad shifted towards the dead drop east of town.

Command squad and 2nd squad encountered a heavy enemy counterattack. The commander was pinned down and forced to hold his position as the counterattack closed. The commander was killed in the firefight, but the counterattack was stopped.

Command squad advanced to the dead drop location and took control of the documents. At that point the town was cleared, so the order came down to retreat. 3rd squad was ordered to continue to hold its position while 2nd retreated.

When the commander gave the retreat order to 3rd squad, it was unable to move due to enemy counterfire. Command squad advanced near to 3rd squad position and attacked the enemy rifle force. The action shook 3rd squad loose and it began its retreat south.

Casualties were moderate. Command squad lost three including the commander. 3rd squad lost six, most of them holding their position, while 2nd squad lost two. Command squad's transport boat was stuck in the sand due to low tide, so the rest of command squad evacuated by rubber boat.

3) An element of 2nd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to Schwanefeld in Werferlingen to defend against a separatist armor force heading its way late Sunday morning.

Recon staff of 2nd Bn told command staff that, according to electronic intercepts, the separatists would storm Schwanefeld from the march. Weather in the region was just bad enough to help them with concealment as they neared the town.

The task force commander set up his defensive zone, expecting separatist forces to move to Schwanefeld via Buchberg forest. Instead separatist forces attacked from the northwest.

One light rifle probe came over the ridge near Buchberg forest. Chernarus heavy machine gun fire and artillery stopped the probe.

Two more rifle attacks came between Buchberg forest and Wallbeck, with both being stopped, partially with artillery. The commander shifted one BRDM scout car to the west to bolster defenses.

Several enemy armor and technicals arrived to the north of town, starting with two BRDM scour cars. One was destroyed with RPG fire and the other with tank gunfire.

Casualties were light with command squad taking the brunt. Command squad lost four including its BTR. The task force retreated from Schwanefeld in good order.

4) From 2nd Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade came an order to attack and clear the hamlet of Rogovo in Chernarus Tuesday night.

Among the tasks set out for the task force commander was the elimination of the two separatist commanders, Boris Yurinov and Elena Popov, who led the operation to take Rogovo.

The tactical plan was for 2nd and 3rd squads to assault into Rogovo from the southeast, while command squad assaults from the southwest. Two BRDM scout cars were staged on the southern road leading into Rogovo.

Before the attack took place, both BRDM scout cars were destroyed by separatist artillery. Command squad reached the hamlet first and began the process of clearing Rogovo of enemy soldiers.

The commander ordered a one shot artillery attack on one technical. Later the commander was killed by another technical.

The deputy commander continued the operation by finding and eliminating Yurinov's second in command and seizing document she was know to be carrying. Once the order came down to retreat, command squad remained in Rogovo to cover the retreat.

It was at that moment, two squads of separatist infantry entered town from the northwest. The deputy commander could not reach supporting artillery, so his squad began to retreat from town rather than stay and fight.

Rifle fire from the separatist reinforcements was extremely heavy, and despite command squad retreating from town, the enemy infantry continued to pursue.

3rd squad received the call to assist command squad, mostly by attacking the separatists' flank, but they too suffered heavy casualties. 3rd squad decided to retreat along with command squad, but they like command squad were cut down to just three effectives.

Casualties were heavy with 14 riflemen being killed, plus six BRDM crewmen.

5) A Chernarus Defense Forces spetsnaz team, directly attached to Chernarus Coastal Operations group was ordered to go to Sinyastok in far northern Chernarus to eliminate several personalities.

Klement Tinaj and a female deputy were identified as one of several command groups with a specialization in logistics. Additionally a four man private contractor group in Sinyastok for rest and recreation, had been identified as one of several groups known for committing atrocities against civilians on the orders of criminal command groups.

The spetsnaz team inserted by MI-24 helicopter about one kilometer south of Sinyastok, and proceeded into the town. Another gunship was called in to provide air cover as the group penetrated the town's security perimeter.

Tinaj and his assistant both were found inside a residence. The commander eliminated them both, while the team located and dispatched their security detail.

The team then proceeded north to located the private contractor team and eliminate them as well.

During extraction, the transport bird underwent attacks from enemy troops inside of town. The team's RPG gunner and the commander were hit. The commander died.

The tempo of combat operations continued at an increased pace.

Chernarus Defense, Naval and air forces have engaged in six operations in five regions

1) Early Friday morning elements of 1st Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to Mariental to relieve troops assigned there.

Brigade command previously ordered the two squads to Mariental to provide security for the town after a minor mishap. A few hours before the site commander reported separatist troops were massing for an attack.

In relief operations, the key element is to get as many mobile troops to the area as quickly as possible to cover the stranded troops' evacuation.

The rifle section was ordered to the northernmost east-west road and ordered to hold their position. The stranded troops then were ordered to retreat to a location south of Mariental to rendezvous with trucks.

The armor which arrived first engaged and destroyed enemy vehicles. Command squad itself engaged and destroyed a BTR-80A.

When the report arrived that the troops had arrived at their marshalling point safely, the commander ordered a general retreat south. That was when a BTR-80A and a BRDM scout car attacked. The tanks destroyed them both.

Casualties were light. One the two rifle squad relieved suffered casualties, two total.

2) In Werferlingen, operations staff for Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade issued a warning order to 2nd Bn that separatists were moving to storm Horsingen.

This was the second separatist attempt to take over the town in two weeks.

The assembled task force moved quickly to town to take up positions similar to the ones it took two weeks ago: Comand squad and one tank covering the northern bridge, with the rest covering the western approaches.

Command squad fought off three separate rifle attacks, fights which included the use of artillery. On the western approach Tank 1 destroyed two enemy armored vehicles, including a BTR-80A.

Command squad at that point decided that the northern bridge position was adequate and ordered Tank 2 to the western defensive sector.

By that time, the order to withdraw arrived, so the commander ordered a retreat south, starting with the BRDM scout cars. That was when separatist armor struck.

As 2nd squad was leaving, and command squad began moving to take its position, a T-34/85 cross the northern bridge. An enemy BMP-1 came into the area as well. The command squad BTR was destroy, along with five effectives, including the commander.

2nd squad stopped their movement, and took command of the operation. Two more BMPs entered the town, one of them damaging a CDF tank, and then the other. Commander called one of the reinforcing elements from the forward zone.

Commander lost four more to two more tanks, one T-34/85 and one T-55. 2nd squad BTR was destroyed. Commander then began to retreat to the area to rendezvous with one of the reinforcing BTR squads.

At that point, yet another tank entered the area.

The operations suffered catastrophic losses. Two BTRs, 12 effectives total. Tank which had been repaired in field once were damaged again by enemy armor overrunning their positions.

Separatists suffered as well. Field count of separatist losses include three destroyed tanks, no fewer than four BMPs, one BTR-80A and one BRDM scout car.

3) Operations staff from 1st Bn, Chernarus 7th Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade sent out a warning to that separatists were planning to take Kostensi in Leskovets from the march.

The weather was rainy and the road march to Kostensi took nearly 45 minutes.

Separatist infantry initiated two attacks from the northwest, both of which were stopped cold by 3rd squad and a supporting CDF BRDM scout car. Another infantry attack coming from the northeast was stopped by 2nd squad.

A CDF BRDM scout car was destroyed by a separatist RPG shot, but 2nd squad held on. In the meantime, a friendly relief column was ambushed on the road to Kostensi by a pair of technicals. One BTR was destroyed along with nine effectives.

Separatist armor struck in Kostensi next. Vehicle after vehicle attempted to enter town from the east, but every one was stopped by the task force's tanks. 2nd squad's BTR was destroyed by a T-34/85.

Air cover entered the area about 20 minutes after it was occupied, but the SU-25 ground interdiction aircraft were not much of a factor. Both were shot down with the losses of the air crews.

Losses were moderate. The task force lost one BRDM scout car and two BTRs, counting the relief forces. 2nd squad lost five and 3rd squad lost two. All units withdrew from the battle area in good order.

Separatists losses were heavy. Field counts include two BRDMs, one T-34/85, one BMP and two technicals.

4) A combat group from 1st Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack Dolina in Chernarus early Sunday morning.

The main locus of the operation was the elimination of the two criminal operatives who led the invasion of Dolina Saturday night: Jovan Duka and Angela Rexha. Both were low level operatives within the separatist camp and only recently acquired their new unit.

This attack is the second in six weeks, and the third since August. Dolina is a critical location from which the separatists could launch an attack on Berezino, which Chernarus Defense Forces have been holding since 2017.

As in the previous operations, the attack came from the south and along a broad front. As soon as the movement into town began, separatist artillery began to pound friendly forces, costing command squad two dead.

As the combat group penetrated Dolina's defenses, both BRDM scout cars began their assault. Both were destroyed by RPG fire. As soon as the combat group entered town, command squad went to find the two operatives.

Commander found and eliminated the two, but was killed by the command group's security detail. The combat group continued to push north to locate the mortar battery positioned atop a hill. The battery was destroyed.

The remaining infantry forces retreated from town. Losses were moderate. Command squad lost five, while 3rd squad lost seven.

Recon staff from 1st Bn will analyze documents taken from the dead body of Rexa.

5) A spetsnaz detachment for Chernarus 2nd Army Corps was ordered to Mikhalovo in Beketov with a task of eliminating two separatist commanders early Wednesday morning.

According to intelligence gathered by 2nd Corps recon staff, Boris Yurinov and Tika Xhukici were preparing another attack on unspecified towns near Treshka River with a large assembly of troops and combat vehicles. Commander 2nd Corps ordered the assassinations.

The environment for the trip to Mikhalovo was clear so the insertion by a MI-24 gunship went very smoothly. With the support of another army MI-24 gunship, the detachment entered town and proceeded to the operatives' hideout.

The gunship made quick work of enemy technicals and enemy soldiers as the detachment made their way to the hideout.

The commander eliminated Yurinov and Xhukici, along with two elements of their security detail. The commander seized documents from a backpack worn by Xhukici.

The extraction helicopter suffered difficulties in extracting the detachment, so the commander ordered to bird abandoned. The pilot and gunner joined the detachment for evacuation by the attacking MI-24.

The spetznaz detachment was returned to base safely along with the gunship crew. The operation suffered no losses apart from the abandoned MI-24.

6) A reinforced task force from 2nd Bn, Chernrus 17th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack the town of Sevastianovo in Beketov Wednesday night.

Sevastianovo had been invaded by a separatist force led by two criminal operatives, Ismail Gjokaj and Margarita Tikhonova. Command 2nd Bn ordered their elimination. Separatist forces have been arresting people and placing them in detention, and they had been looting the residents of the town.

The tactical plan was for two BRDM scout car detachments to post in key areas, the better to stop incoming enemy reinforcements. 3rd squad was ordered to attack from the east along the main road leading through town. 2nd squad was ordered to enter town through a break in the southern fence line.

As the battle began, two enemy armored cars attempting to enter the town were destroyed by one of the BRDM AT scout cars. Both squads made their objective and began the process of clearing the town.

Command squad planned to enter town through a road, turn right and gain entry to the hide out of the operatives. Documents were recovered from the dead body of Margarita Tikhonova. Commander also eliminated the operatives' security detail.

As soon as artillery destroyed the separatists' supply trucks, the command drove for the building where intelligence said the separatists were keeping three prisoners. The command was killed in his attack, so his second command eliminated the operators guarding the prisoners. The prisoners refused to go with the commander.

The task force then was ordered to retreat from town, which they did without difficulty.

Casualties were light. Command squad bore the brunt of the fighting with four dead. The separatists losses were heavy, Field reports were that one BTR-80A and one BRDM were destroyed. The attacking helicopter destroyed a BRDM attempting to enter the town.

From: Chernarus Coastal Operations Group
Subject: Weekly Summary of Combat Operations, from December 11th to December 17th, Inclusive.

Message begins:

The tempo of combat operations continued at a faster pace.

Chernarus Defense Forces, Air Forces and Naval Forces have engaged in three separate operations against separatist forces in two regions.

1) Early Friday morning, an order went out to 2nd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade for a quickly assembled task force to relieve friendly troops in Ribbensdorf in Werferlingen.

Brigade operations staff previously had ordered a small rifle force to town to perform "courtesy patrols" in the wake of the local constabulary deserting to the separatists. The detachment commander requested to be evacuated after he found separatist troops massing for an attack.

In a relief mission the usual road march formations are dispensed with, so that as many mobile troops can be moved to the area of operation as quickly as possible. In this mission, the two T-72s made it to town first.

Relieving forces were damaged from the outset, with 3rd squad being nearly destroyed in a traffic accident. The three remaining squad members were boarded aboard 2nd squad and moved into town. Command squad crossed the river next to the bridge which was rendering unusable because of the wreckage, and resumed their trek to the north.

The destruction of 2nd squad also forced the commander to reroute the trucks dedicated to transporting the relieved troops to safety.

Suddenly just south of Hodingen, an enemy BRDM scout car appeared. driving hard for command squad. After ordering his squad to dismount, an RPG gunner fire at the BRDM at point blank range, destroying it with the resulting explosion destroying the squad BTR and five effectives, including the commander.

By this time reports were coming in that two enemy tanks had entered Ribbensdorf, but they were destroyed by the relieving force tanks. The evacuation trucks arrived at this same time. One of the remnant squads were boarded about a truck.

The other squad was cut down to just the team leader, which commander found and folded him into his squad. The commander was then relieved of overall command of the operations. Commander of 2nd squad took over.

The two trucks made it to their rendezvous point, so the commander ordered the rest of the force to retreat east to Behnsdorf.

Casualties were very heavy. The relieving force lost two BTRs and 13 effectives. The relieved force lost 17 effectives. The two technicals in town were abandoned.

2) Late Friday night elements of 1st Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade were ordered to Rhode in Werferlingen, to relieve troops there.

Two squads and two technicals had been sent to the general area to perform a recon mission when they discovered a large rebel force approaching the Rhode. Battalion operations staff ordered the assembly of a relief task force to aid the stranded infantry group.

Relief operations entail dispensing with the normal road march order. Mobile troops are moved as fast as they can go to the area to aid the troops in trouble.
v The two tanks and two BRDM scout cars arrived first. Until that point the stranded rifle team was suffering severe losses. The group also lost both technicals to enemy fire. When the rifle section of the taskforce arrived, the situation in town was well in hand.

The rifles began mopping up the town of enemy forces. Command squad located and destroyed a BRDM which penetrated into town. Later, as the transport trucks arrived for the stranded forces, a T-55 tank attempted to enter town.

Tank 2 moved up, located and destroyed the tank. The task force held their position until the order came down to retreat. The command ordered the task force to pull back to Ahmstorf to the east and await further orders.

Losses up to this point were light for the task force with only one effective from 2nd squad lost. As command squad made its way back to the forward zone, halfway between Rennau and Barmke, it encountered an enemy armor block consisting of one T-55 and one BMP-1.

The command attempted to destroy the vehicles using the squad's RPG gunners, then ordered a large artillery strike on the position. The command ordered his squad to retreat back 200 more meters. He was caught in the resulting impact zone and was killed.

The second in command ordered the last remaining tank in the forward zone to move up and engage the enemy armor. That tank was lost to enemy armor counterfire. The commander then ordered a BMP-2 from the forward zone to engage and destroy the enemy armor.

The enemy crew bailed out, so the command attacked the position, killing all six crew. The command set to destroy the vehicles with explosives.

Command squad in toto lost five in this engagement.

3) A rifle group assembled from 1st Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack Orlovets in Chernarus Saturday afternoon.

Brigade recon staff discovered a separatist force took over the village that morning and already had emplaced three ZU-23/2 AA guns. It was apparent the separatists were planning to hold Orlovets.

4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade attacked Orlovets last November 9th, 2020 but the operation was aborted due to casualties.

A CDF SU-25 ground interdiction fighter was tasked to cover the operation, and was ordered to destroy the ZU-23s. It was shot down by its third pass. The pilot managed to bailout safely south of Orlovets. He was escorted back to base.

The tactical plan was for 2nd and 3rd squads to attack directly from the south, avoiding fire from the AA emplacements, while command squad and both BRDMs penetrated the village defenses from the southwest and west.

The plan worked, so the rifle group quickly overwhelmed separatist defenses. Command squad and the two BRDMs continued to penetrate east, clearing out enemy forces holding buildings.

Commander was pushing to locate Klement Tinaj and Kristina Levieva, a criminal command group. Riflemen from 2nd squad killed both. Levieva, attempted to exit the building she was staying, but was cut down by CDF rifle fire.

The commander grabbed documents Levieva was known to be holding.

After the village was clear, commander moved his squad to the west and prepared for enemy mobile forces to enter the area. A T-34/85 tank did enter the area, but was destroyed by command squad RPG gunners.

3rd squad, which suffered six dead, was ordered out under covering fire from command squad. An enemy BTR-80A entered the area from the west, as did an enemy BMP-1 from the east. The rifle task force did not have sufficient firepower to destroy enemy armor.

3d squad was caught by the BTR and destroyed, while 2nd squad was frozen in place and refused to leave. Command folded 2nd squad into the command squad, by which time it was too late.

By the time command squad ordered a retreat no fewer than five separatist armor vehicles were in town. Command ordered his squad to go prone and crawl quietly out of town.

Losses were very heavy. One SU-25 ground interdiction fighter was shot down with the pilot surviving. 2nd squad was wiped; only the commander remained, and he was frozen in place and abandoned.

4) Thursday afternoon, elements of 2nd Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade were ordered to attack Myshkino in Chernarus.

Brigade recon staff had established that Myshkino was taken over by separatist troops after intercepting a number of social media posts.

The tactical plan was for two BRDM scout cars to attack west along the road leading into Myshkino, while the infantry group attacked from the south.

Before they got to their positions, 2nd squad was attacked by a foot patrol, and lost two in the firefight. An SU-25 ground interdiction aircraft was shot down over Myshkino.

Command squad was caught by separatist artillery and wiped out, except for the commander. When word filtered in the two criminal operatives commanding the takeover, Enver Hoxja and Larissa Rulin were dead, the commander, now commanding 3rd squad, entered town and began to search the area for Rulin.

Neither Hoxja nor Rulin's dead bodies could be found. The commander ordered a retreat, when separatist shooters arrived from the north. 3rd squad was cut down in half by rebel gunfire. Commander attempted to engage the enemy infantry with artillery, but by then, ammunition was running low.

Overall the mission was a success but at a high cost. Command squad lost nine, while 2nd squad lost three. 3rd squad lost six. The pilot of the shot down SU-25 rendezvoused with one of the scour cars, and was evacuated back to headquarters.

The tempo of combat operations continued at a slower pace.

Chernarus Defense Forces, Air Forces and Naval Forces have engaged in four separate operations against separatist forces in two regions.

1) An element of 2nd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack and clear the town of north Werferlingen in Werferlingen late Friday night.

Among the tasks assigned to the task force was the elimination of two operatives, who commanded the take over: Alexei Yakovlev and Anna Kvitko. Another was for the commander to locate and collect documents left in a dead drop northeast of town.

The tactical plan was for Tank 2 to force the bridge east of the railyard, while 2nd and 3rd squad would cross the bridge south of the railyard. The infantry would link up with Tank 1 and press forward. Tank 3 would cross the bridge south of the church, with command squad following closely behind.

A brief firefight developed as command squad crossed the bridge without their BTR and continued north to the operatives' headquarters. Tank 3 already had destroyed one technical which was sitting stride the road, while the commander destroyed another technical with a rifle grenade.

Enemy forces closed into town rapidly, including no fewer than four BTR-80As, which are the bane of mobile operations. BTR-80As are fast, cheap, and deadly to both tanks and BTRs. Commander had never seen so many BTR-80As in one operation.

One of the BTR-80As inflicted a mobility hit on Tank 3, which would eventually be abandoned.

When the commander eliminated Kvitko and collected documents on her person, he ordered 3rd squad to move close to command squad's position. Command squad began pushing to the northeast towards the dead drop.

Commander also called an artillery strike on two BTRs sitting in the way. The danger close shot collapsed a building atop the commander.

By this time all four BTR's were destroyed by artillery and by RPG fire. Separatist riflemen began to pour into town from the northeast, along with a T-34/85 and a T-55 tank. The T-34 destroyed 3rd squad, leaving only the team leader surviving.

With the commander disabled, 2nd squad commander was ordered to take command of the operation. 2nd squad attempted to push northeast but were stopped by separatist rifle attacks.

Trapped from a T-55 on the north side of the river and pressure continuing to build from the north from advancing separatist infantry, the commander called mission outcome doubtful and began to retreat from town.

Casualties were very heavy, for both sides. Command squad was shattered and eventually reconstituted as a separate squad with five missing. 2nd squad lost five and its BTR, while 3rd squad lost their BTR.

Separatist losses were heavy as well. In addition to the losses of the BTRs, two technicals and one BMP were destroyed. The operation was called a failure.

2) Saturday morning, an armored task force from 1st Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to retake the town of Rhode in Werferlingen.

Battalion recon staff received information that the separatists, led by separatist operatives Simeon Sevic and Amarda Pepaj, already began the process of rounding up potential resistance fighters for evacuation north.

Among those rounded up were a local woman, her girlfriend, and her brother, who was just in town to visit them. Intelligence did not think the prisoners were part of any local resistance cell, but the task force's orders were to extract them.

The tactical plan was for 2nd squad, 3rd squad, both BRDM scout cars and one tank to hit the town from the east, from the march. Command squad would maneuver round and hit the separatists' position from the southwest.

The attack went extremely well. Command squad, after a short firefight, broke the enemy's resistance, and penetrated to the northern edge of town. 2nd and 3rd squad also broke resistance in the east, but with casualties.

When the commander reached the operative's hideout, he launched a rifle grenade through the window where they were staying. The explosion killed Pepaj, but it was such a bloody mess he couldn't find the dead body of Pepaj.

The release of the prisoners went smoothly. The three were treated by the squad's medic and were placed in the squad's BTR. Due to a game bug, the extraction wasn't credited.

After securing the town from separatist forces, commander ordered the task force, to retreat east through Ahmsdorf. Commander also ordered an artillery strike to destroy the supply vehicles left there by the separatists.

Casualties were very light. 2nd squad lost two and 3rd squad lost one. All forces withdrew from the area of operation in good order.

3) 1st Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to assemble a rifle force to retake The Factory in Chernarus Sunday morning.

A separatist force led by criminal operatives, Ivan Albanez and Eralda Cunmulaj had attacked and taken over The Factory sometime late Saturday night. Aside from clearing the factory, the commander's orders were to eliminate the operatives.

The tactical plan was to line up all units east to west and attack along a Zhukovian front, with 2nd and 3rd squads on the right wing. They were ordered to turn the flanks of the enemy's position, while command squad laid down continuous rifle covering fire from the west.

Enemy counterfire severely cut down command squad, including the commander and his second in command who both were killed. The commander of 3rd squad then was ordered to take overall command of the operation.

2nd and 3rd squad penetrated the compound's wall and began clearing attacks. An enemy counter attack destroyed one BRDM scout car with RPG fire. The Factory was quickly cleared. Enemy reinforcements kept pouring in from the north.

An enemy BTR-80A burst onto the situation but was destroyed by RPG fire from command squad who were sited along the ridge overlooking the road leading to The Factory. The BTR-80A did kill a BRDM scout car commander. The scout car was ordered to withdraw.

The severity of the CDF attack on the factory killed the two operatives, so the commander grabbed documents from the dead body of Eralda Cunmulaj.

The rest of the task force then was ordered to retreat south, an operation which went smoothly despite the appearance of an enemy QRF from the northwest.

Casualties were heavy with command squad losing five and 2nd squad losing three. A Chernarus Air Force SU-25, there to provide air cover, was shot down early in the operation.

4) On Sunday morning a Chernarus naval spetsnaz team directly attached to Chernarus Coastal Operations Group was assigned the task of eliminating a pair of separatist operatives, Grigoriy Bukharin and Anna Rasputin.

Naval intelligence said the two were residing at the hamlet of Khelm in Chernarus. Rasputin was carrying a number of documents, including a list of names of people they planned to detain then execute.

Assisting the team flying air cover were a pair of MI-24G gunships, which allowed the team to enter the hamlet and eliminate the operatives.

Once their task was completed, the team exfiltrated to their boat and to the command ship. No casualties were reported.

Subject: Weekly Summary of Combat Operations, from November 27th to December 3rd, Inclusive.

Message begins:

The tempo of combat operations continued at a slower pace.

Chernarus Defense Forces, Air Forces and Naval Forces have engaged in seven separate operations against rseparatist forces in three regions.

1) A battalion armored task force from 1st Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack the town of north Grasleben in Werferlingen Thursday evening.

This was the third operation in Grasleban in November, and was necessitated by the entry of a separatist armed force which took over the town the night before.

Friendly operatives reported to battalion intelligence that separatist troops had started rounding up civilians in town and were planning to reinforce. The separatists were led by Nikolay Zmajevic and Agnesa Lajcaj.

The force tactical plan was for two rifle squads, 2nd and 3rd to push forward into town behind the two tanks. One BRDM scout car would be positioned south and west to monitor any enemy movement to cut off the task force, while the second BRDM provided an eastern flank screen for command squad.

Enemy rifle groups were quickly swept away by the operation as command squad pressed to the location of the two top operatives.

The commander eliminated the two operatives, but was killed by the enemy operatives' security detail. Command squad's second in command finished off the shooter, an automatic rifleman.

Commander ordered two two tanks forward passed the northern edge of town to cover command squad as the commander pushed north to the dead drop. Documents were recovered by the commander from the dead drop and from the dead body of Lajcaj.

When the retreat order came down from battalion command, the task force retreated from town in good order.

Casualties were light. Command squad lost two, while 2nd squad lost two and 3rd squad lost none.

The recon section of battalion indicated the documents recovered provided significant detail to the separatists' plans.

2) Early Friday morning, an element of 1st Bn, Chernarus 17th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack Zaitsevo in Beketov. Battalion recon staff discovered the separatists had taken over the evening before and were preparing to defend the town.

Along the way to the main objective, command squad, with one BRDM providing heavy machine gun fire support, cleared the airfield of separatists before pushing on to Zaitsevo.

The tactical plan for Zaitsevo was for 2nd squad to push along with east side of town, with 3rd squad pushing along the westside. One BRDM scout would advance in support of 3rd squad while another BRDM would move to support 2nd squad and two BRDM AT scout cars.

Command squad entered town along the main road. The commander ordered smoke artillery to cover the advance, and then ordered two single shot artillery missions to destroy the two medium machine gun technicals deployed in town.

Just before entering, the commander ordered an artillery mission to destroy the AA battery deployed to the west. The commander later was forced to use satchel changes to destroy the guns.

Command squad penetrated into town deep enough to locate one of the operatives in command of the rebel force, Georgi Horvat. It was learned that the other operative, Danijela Ristic, attempted to sneak away, but the commander caught her and eliminated her, as well as Horvat.

The commander also took documents from the dead body of Ristic.

Zaitsevo was systematically cleared. The commander eliminated the last resistance: four riflemen holed up in a wood shed.

Casualties were moderate. 3rd squad lost six and command squad lost one.

3) A warning order was issued from brigade headquarters to 2nd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade, about a separatist move to seize the town of Horsingen in Werferlingen.

The assembled task force was rushed into town to set up a defensive zone. The tactical plan was for both BRDMs, one tank, and 2nd and 3rd squad to deploy along the western edge of town. Command squad and one tank would deploy in the north over watching a bridge.

Command squad and the tank defended against two rifle attacks as separatist troops attempted to gain the near side of the river. Everything at the commander's disposal was used including artillery.

In the west 3rd squad defended against a rifle attack, while their tank destroyed an enemy BRDM as it was moving on the road west of town.

Matters became complicated when the order to withdraw came down. As the task force's rifles were preparing to leave, a BMP-1 penetrated passed a BRDM picket, but was destroyed by RPG gunners. It had come within 25 meters of the road 3rd squad was defending before being stopped.
v Command squad moved to take 3rd squad's position, as a T-34/85 tank came into view. Before command squad rifles could dismount, something hit the T-35/85 destroying it. 2nd squad managed to leave despite hearing another BMP nearby.

Casualties were non existent for the task force. Field report said the separatists lost no fewer than 20 effectives, a BMP-1, a tank and a BRDM.

4) A task force from 1st Bn, Chernarus 24th Separate Mountain Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack a location in far northern Summa early Sunday morning.

According to brigade recon staff a separatist force withdrew a kilometer north of its assigned position to Location 4888, 5296 to await another rotating force. This created a gap in their lines.

The retreating force was led by operatives Viktr Kaba and Xhuli Martini. Both were assigned to an elimination list by brigade operations.

The tactical plan was for 2nd and 3rd squads to attack from the southeast, while command squad attacked from the southwest. The two BRDM scout cars were to move up the road to provide heavy machine gun fire support.

But before command squad could get to the rebels' defensive zone, half its number were wiped out by enemy artillery. The commander ordered the attack to continue, since the other two rifle squads were intact. One of the two task force BRDMs were destroyed by RPG fire.

An artillery strike was ordered on the position of the three AA guns assigned to be destroyed. As 2nd squad closed to the main objective, they ran into a heavy technical (Humvee with M2 machine gun). A large number of them were wiped out as well.

The attack pressed towards the main bunker where the operatives were hiding. The firefight last for several minutes. Commander found Martini dead a few meters away, so he stripped her of documents she was known to be carrying.

An enemy BRDM entered the area and killed the commander. Meanwhile 3rd squad was ordered north to intercept enemy reinforcements coming down from the north. 3nd squad ran into a still undamaged ZU-23. Seven were wiped out.

Second in command of the operation ordered a retreat, with only five effectives total for all three squads.
v 5) Monday morning, another task force was assembled from 1st Bn, 24th Separate Light Rifle Brigade and ordered to attack a location separatists were defending in Summa. The task force orders included eliminating two criminal operatives, Gjergj Kastrioti and Tijana Latinovic.

The commander launched artillery strikes on the separatists' position to eliminate the mortar battery and two heavy machine gun technicals deployed in defense.

In the initial contact, one of the BRDM scout car was destroyed by RPG fire. Command squad was first through the wire and to the criminal operatives' bunker. Artillery fire killed the two operatives. The commander seized documents from the dead body of Latinovic.

Friendly artillery fire failed to destroy the two mortars the enemy had deployed. Those were eliminated by rifle fire. The task force prepared to defend their position, but enemy reinforcements never showed.

Casualties were moderate. Command squad lost three to rebel artillery. 2nd squad lost two and 3rd squad lost one. 6) Thursday morning, commander 1st Bn, Chernarus 24th Separate Light Mountain Rifle Brigade received a warning order that separatists were preparing to attack 1st Bn's forward zone position.

The order came down during a heavy snow storm, so the task force deployed in a semi circle, defending its zone with the three light rifle squads and two scout cars.

Two separatist rifle squads advanced on command squad's position. The attack was stopped, but after a heavy firefight.

2nd Squad was attacked at about the same time as command squad, this time from two separatist rifle squads, two technicals and a BMP-2. 2nd squad stood their ground, but were wiped out. Command squad rushed to the position.

The commander ordered an artillery atack on one of the technicals, which was destroyed. The BMP penetrated right up to the headquarters. The battalion command group attempted to retreat, but were cut down by fire from the BMP.

Two tanks from brigade commander's personal guard showed up. One of the tank located and destroyed the BMP, while the other stood their ground where 2nd squad had been.

The mission was called a failure.

A Little About Salaspil campsubject logo
2020-11-30
Posted by: badanov

From Russian military journalist Boris Rozhin, who writes in a distinct sardonic manner about the concentration camp in Latvia, near Riga. Translation from Google Translate, but I tried to clean up some of the more obvious problems. The matter with Salaspil was the number of children killed:

Good day, comrades! The further the events of 1939-1945, the more demanding a reassessment of any unpleasant moments that were happening in the territories, a little (most decl) occupied by Nazis.

In fact, the Nazis were good, they committed their atrocities only under the impression of the crimes of Stalinism (tm).

And Stalin is worse than Hitler, as Masha Zakharova ( who is the flak catcher for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (And I can't believe she said this)), a great specialist in Chinese toys, told us. It happens that such figures get to the butt right at the time of fagots like Nikolai Karlych Svanidze (A Russian Golden Throat). However, unfortunately, these cases are isolated, and juvenile morons continue to rip off the covers.

This time, during the show "Evening with Vladimir Solovyov", a certain cupcake Grigory Amnuel (Russian journalist), under a terrible secret, said that:

“We really call the camp that existed in Nazi Germany a concentration camp. In fact… the camp in Salaspils… none of them ever bore the name“ concentration ”

There is a clear definition of a concentration camp: "A concentration camp is a place for forced isolation real or perceived opponents of the state, political regime, etc. "

Since in the Salaspils camp there were opponents of the Nazi state and the Nazi political regime (including opponents of the racial policy of the Reich), therefore, the Salaspils camp is precisely a concentration camp.

And no matter how ... Partaigenosse Lange (the commander of the Security Police and SD in Latvia) gets sick, and no matter how he calls the Salaspils camp in his departmental documentation, it will remain a concentration camp. And not a ballet school for the Untermensch or something else. Actually, Himmler himself did not call this camp anything other than a concentration camp, he knew more than Gregory Amnuel cake.

Further Gamnuel broadcasts:

"As for the experiments - no, the blood was taken from the children. The experiments that the famous" Doctor Death "conducted in Auschwitz and Birkenau were not carried out there. The blood was taken, yes."

Reluctantly, he admitted that the rubber product of the condom industry ... Only blood was taken, though often all ... And that is why Amnuel believes that it was not a concentration camp? Sure, not a problem! Hitching up with Grynya in a kid's argument. Hang it up on end, poke a few holes and drain five liters of blood from the carcass ... If after that Grynya survives - talked, you devil! Let's no longer call the Salaspils concentration camp. Well, if he dies (which with a probability of 146%), then call lads.

Few memories of the prisoners of the Salaspils "not a concentration camp":

"The execution was usually carried out in the presence of all the prisoners, who were lined up in a semicircle near the place of execution. For very poor work on February 20, six Jews were to be hanged. Yet they were not put to death in the evening. The next day, the death row was sent with others to work. Lange arrived on the day. He walked the entire coast, but did not shoot anyone.

The bosses are in a good mood," we reasoned.

After the signal about the end of the work, everyone was lined up facing the Daugava. Lange, Nikkel, Kacherovsky appeared in front of the formation. Those who did not work well were called out and put on the ice. Schutzmans (SS guards) came up with submachine guns.

The order was sounded to undress. While the convicts were undressing, buckets were brought from the warehouse of tools. The guards began to draw ice water from the river and feed the bucket along the chain forward. The first bucket was followed by the second, the third ... The buckets passed from hand to hand until they reached the naked people. There water was poured over the heads of the convicts. A piercing north wind was blowing. The frost reached 25 degrees. Quiet on. Only a splash of water is heard. The torture continued until the happy ones froze in their icy clothes. "

“A few days later, the soldiers in all groups were taken out of the barrack and led across the courtyard to the hospital. There we were lined up. We did not know what they would do with us. Then a German doctor came, big and angry, and another German, I did not see what they were doing in front, but some girl suddenly began to cry and scream, and the doctor stamped his feet.

I was very scared ... it was my turn ... the doctor stuck a needle into my hand and, when he had taken a full glass tube, let me go and began to draw blood from my sister Anya ... A day later, they took us to the doctor again and took blood again. Soon Anya died in the barracks. We all had injections. We were all sick, dizzy, boys died every day and girls"

It was a harsh winter of 1943. The Nazis drove people here from different parts of Belarus. The unfortunate people did not yet know that their grave would be here. Everything was taken from them - clothes, food and ... children. It was, I remember, a terribly cold February night Suddenly we heard the loud voices of the fascists. The brought people were driven out into the yard and forced to undress.

"We will take them to the bathhouse!" We told them shortly.

"Naked?"

- What do you want? Maybe in brocade evening dresses and tuxedos? - mocked the unfortunate fascists. They could afford it: in their hands were weapons, whips, death. They drove everyone to the bathhouse together: men, women and children.

We made a big detour past the camp barracks to make the road longer. The February frost was breathtaking. We heard the children crying, hugging their mothers to keep warm. How to save crumbs from the embrace of the icy wind! Mothers with tears in their eyes hugged the babies (there were also babies), breathed on them, rubbed and stroked with bare numb hands.

The elders (between the ages of two and nine) stomped themselves somehow. They cried and begged for their mothers to take them home. The frost burned their little feet, and the road was long and the laughter of the SS men mocking. They did not seem to see the faces tightened by pain in a grimace, do not hear desperate voices. Humanity cannot be demanded from the fascists.

They didn't know what it was. We did not sleep that night - we simply could not, hearing the groans of the unfortunate. Naked, they had to walk a kilometer back and forth. Many babies did not live to see the morning. Some of the babies froze on the way back, and the unfortunate mothers in vain tried with their breath to fan the spark of an already extinct life. The rest of the children developed a fever at night or the next day. In a few days they also died out. And the survivors were taken away from their parents.

Our barrack was not far from the children, and we heard everything. Tears, groans and despair. There were children under six years old. The elders were put on cars and taken away. Where to? Nobody knew that.

None of those taken away returned. Then the mothers were taken away. They didn't come back either. About twenty of the most beautiful girls were dressed in the clothes of murdered Jewish women and were also taken away. They were taken to Riga, to brothels for the entertainment of Hitler's officers ... Various diseases were spreading more and more in the barracks: measles, dysentery ... They asked a fascist doctor to examine the children and give medicine. But he waved his hand indifferently: - One more or less.

Dozens of children died every day. The corpses, like logs, were put in boxes and taken away. Finally, a German doctor arrived from Riga and brought some medicines, which he ordered to give to all children. From them babies immediately died *. We realized that no one here is concerned about the fate of the unfortunate children. On the contrary, the Nazis want to get rid of them faster. Extra ballast in the camp."

The fascist doctor appeared in the barracks again:

- What are the healthiest children here?

At the beginning, we did not understand what this sudden interest meant. We have shown. But our frankness for many kids turned out to be fatal. The doctor took blood from these "healthy" ones, and after a few hours they fell asleep forever.

“So, Dumpe, who worked in the 12th barrack (which housed the hospital), said that sick children slept in twos, threes in one bed. All of them received medicine for dysentery, although many did not have diarrhea. every day it got worse and worse ***. Dumpe stopped giving them medicine and, as ordered by the Nazi doctor, to administer an enema from the urine of the patients themselves. When a few days later the doctor reappeared in the barracks, he was quite surprised:

- Well, you’re tenacious These Asians!

Dumpe acted correctly, not following the orders of the killer. After that, the nurses began to be controlled. The SS men asked bluntly:

“ Why are so few dying?

In Salaspils children were tortured fiercely. They injected them with some kind of liquid, and after that the children expired with diarrhea. They were given poisoned porridge and coffee, and up to 150 people died from this per day ... Children with measles were injected with something, after which inflammation of the eyes began, and after a few days the eyes flowed out "

This and much more can be read in the collection of memories There is a "story about Salaspils" on the Web. Yes, sometimes even this rotting Europe, tolerant of your head, finds it necessary to rein in the Latvian neo-Nazis:

"Published in Riga under the patronage of your president" History of Latvia. XX century "in which the Salaspils concentration camp is called an extended police prison of an educational nature - this is simply blasphemy! This is a mockery of the memory of thousands of lives ruined in Salaspils!"

Member of the European Parliament Athanasios Pafilis.

But cupcakes like Grigory Amnuel don't give a damn, he cuts the loot! True, during the mentioned bugger, he began to catch disapproving glances on himself. They say that someone has already aimed at Grynya's jug. And he twisted right masterfully, bitch! He habitually whined that the Soviet Gulag is still not equated with the Nazi concentration camps.

Although, if you take only the organizational aspect, as even young morons know, without a court verdict I could not endure getting into the Gulag even if I really wanted to. Well, except for those who worked there, the stump is clear. Or on flight, as the former bodyguard of Stalin, General Vlasik, became the head of the camp. But you could get into a Nazi concentration camp at any age and for any reason. And I don’t remember that there were camps for German children in the Gulag system, where they pumped out blood for the needs of the Red Army. In short,

Fire Away!

The tempo of combat operations continued at a slower tempo.

Chernarus Defense Forces, Air Forces and Naval Forces have engaged in three separate operations against rebel forces in four regions.

1) A warning order was issued to the commander of 4th Bn, Chernarus 10th Separate Tank Brigade after detecting separatists moving a large armor force toward Klein Pritzier in Rosche Friday morning.

Two weeks ago a battlegroup from 4th Bn was ordered to attack Klein Pritzier after a separate rebel force had taken over the town.

A task force was assembled and moved rapidly to the town. CDF forces set up a northern direction arc with tanks on the flanks and BTE rifle squad in the center.

The first attack came from the north after two light technicals attempted to enter town from the march. The vehicles, one AGS grenade launcher vehicle and a heavy machine gun vehicle were stopped by rifle fire.

The next attack came from the northwest and the northeast, included an unknown number of infantry trying a direct assault on friendly forces. Those attacks were stopped by rifle fire as well.

The last attacks came from the north and northwest, and included the bulk of rebel armor forces. By field count, two heavy tanks, and at least four BMPs were destroyed by tank gunfire.

Casualties were moderate. One scout car was destroyed after its crew was killed by heavy machine gun fire. One of the relief squads lost four and the other lost one. 2nd and 3rd squads each lost one.

When the withdraw order came down, the task force retreated in good order to the southeast.

2) A relief element from 3rd Bn, Chernarus 33rd Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was assigned the task of relieving forces trapped in Grasleben in Werferlingen.

The commander rapidly moved the scout cars and the fast infantry to the town with tanks, evacuation trucks and support trucks trailing. The road march took 40 minutes to reach Grasleben.

The tactics on relieving a small force under attack is to establish a defensive front to prevent penetration by enemy forces which could stop relief efforts.

2nd Squad setup firing points on the west side, while 3rd squad, Tank 2, and a scout car set up their position on the main north south road. Command squad took a position to the southeast of 3rd squad and Scout 2 set up on the east side of town.

The relieving rifle squads along with their two technicals managed to keep enemy rifle attacks at bay, However, enemy armor struck on 3rd squad's position not long after command squad arrived at their position. 3rd squad lost seven effectives along with its BTR.

A technical was destroyed as was Scout 1. After the exchange of fire, more enemy armor began pushing in from the north. 3rd squad was ordered to retreat, while command squad redeployed close to 3rd squad's old position.

The commander came under machine gun fire from two separate BMPs, and so ordered a tank attack using Tank 1 and Tank 2. Both BMPs were destroyed along with a T-55 tank which attempted to enter town.

Shortly after, the mission was accomplished, orders were issued to withdraw from town. As Scout 2 was moving passed the railroad bridge it came under heavy gun fire from a BMP1 and a BMP2. The scout car overturned, the crew bailed, but were killed by the BMPs.

During this time 3rd squad was broken up and folded into command squad and 2nd squad. The commander sent Tank 2 into a forested area to deal with the BMPs, but was instead destroyed by heavy fire.

The commander ordered an artillery barrage in to the general area. Seeing smoke rising from that area, command squad entered the forested area and found both BMPs destroyed.

Casualties were very heavy. 2nd squad lost three, while command squad lost two. Both scout cars were destroyed. One tank was destroyed. The relieving troops suffered as well. One squad lost one while the other lost five.

3) A battalion warning order was issued that a large separatist force was moving to attack the forward zone of 1st Bn, Chernarus 24th Separate Light Mountain Rifle Brigade in Summa.

Casualties were heavy with command squad losing one, 2nd squad losing six and third squad losing seven.

In all, the defense of the forward zone was a failure because enemies were allowed too close.

Reinforcements arrived from brigade HQ including two tanks from the brigade commander's personal guard.

The tanks were responsible for destroying one BMP-2 and one BMP-1. A scout car also destroyed a technical in the northwest of the defensive zone.

Subject: Weekly Summary of Combat Operations, from October 23rd to October 29th Inclusive.

Message begins:

The tempo of combat operations continued at a slower tempo.

Chernarus Defense Forces, Air Forces and Naval Forces have engaged in seven separate operations against rebel forces in five regions.

1) Friday afternoon, a warning order from brigade operations staff was issued to 3rd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade about an enemy movement towards Gross Steinum in Werferlingen.

The road march to the area of operation was brief. The tactical plan was for the task force to form a semi circle on the northern edge of Gross Steinum. 2nd Squad would be on the left (west) while 3rd squad would be on the right (east). Command squad would take up a position on the western edge of town.

The task force was hit by two infantry attacks from the northwest and from the north. Those attacks were destroyed by direct force from tanks, armored scout cars and rifle fire. Two artillery missions were ordered as well.

The last time 3rd Bn was in Gross Steinum, there were enemy rifles penetration of the security cordon, leaving a narrow avenue of escape.

This time, the separatists did much the same, except this time the task force commander counterattacked every one, stopping the separatists.

Enemy vehicle incursion began soon after. A reinforcing tank, originally ordered to take up a backup position on the eastern edge of town, was ordered to a north south road to overwatch enemy vehicle movement.

This was after 2nd reinforcing squad was fired on by a pair of technicals from its reserve position. 1st Reinforcing squad was then ordered to redeploy and expect enemy vehicles its way two kilometers east of town.

A third rifle attack, this time to the rear of command's squad's position took place. The commander decided, after being in town for an hour that it was time to begin the retreat.

After the scout cars were ordered out, 2nd, then 3rd squad were ordered to retreat south, and not tank the main road south. That was when enemy armor struck in Gross Steinum.

Tank 1 retreated east passed command squad rearguard position, then Tank 2 began its retreat. Three enemy armor vehicles hit. Tank 2 destroyed one T-34/85 and one BMP-2, and damaged a third BMP-1.

Casualties were moderate. The task force lost both scout cars in the retreat trying to fight off rifle probes coming from the west. 2rd squad lost six, while 3rd and command squads lost none.

Field counts of damage to enemy forces include two technicals one BRDM scout car, one T-34/85 and one BMP-1.

2) Saturday morning a task force from 1st Bn. Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was dispatched to Kozan, just four kilometers from the task force's forward zone.

Battalion recon staff found out that a separatist force had taken over the previous night, and appeared to be well prepared to hold Kozan.

The tactical plan was for the two tanks, and 2nd and 3rd squad to attack from the west, while command squad with the gunship would attack from the south out of a hamlet 500 meters south.

The attack went quickly with the rebels' perimeter collapsing as CDF infantry poured in. The commander located Ivan Albanev and eliminated his assistant, Nina Ivanovic. Documents from seized from her dead body.

Two supply trucks also were destroyed.

As enemy counterattacks began, the bulk of the task force was sent west to cover that axis, while command squad and a tank covered the north and northeast. Command squad eventually set the gas station on the northern edge of town as its base.

Two more vehicle counterattacks took place, two in the west and two in the north. The tank stopped both. When the order came down to withdraw, the task force retreated in good order back to base.

Casualties were moderate. 3rd squad lost seven, wle the other two lost none. The gunship was shot down by separatist forces. There were no survivors.

3) Chernarus 10th Separate Tank Brigade operations staff issued an order to a rifle group from 4th Bn, that two rifle squads and two technicals were to be relieve and evacuated from Molbath as soon as possible.

Relief operations always entail a change in the road march order, where in the instance of a relief operation, fast units should move to the area of operation as soon as possible, with tank and support vehicles last.

Separatists already were launched a rifle attack on the two relief squads and caused some damage.

The relieving force from 4th Bn's tactical plan was to push as far towards the direction of the most potential threat, hold that ground and evacuate the relief elements.

Once the relieving force was in place, the relief squads boarded trucks and were transported to the rear. Relieving force held out until the withdraw order came down.

Casualties were very light. The relieving force suffered no casualties, while the relief force suffered three. Relieving force retreated in good order to a rally point one kilometer south of Molbath.

Field reports were that the separatists lost two T-34/85 tanks and at least one BMP-2 IFV.

4) A Chernarus Defense Forces spetsnaz team attached to 2nd Corps was ordered by corps intelligence staff to return to The Farm in northern Beketov. Their orders included a kill order for two separatist operatives, Aleksei Yakovliev and Oksana Putina.

Just the previous week the same special forces team was ordered to eliminate two other rebel operatives, Ivan Plantanov and Eliza Toska, a mission completed successfully.

The new operatives held the same orders as the previous operatives: to establish a forward supply node for the separatists' continued operations in the west Treshka River region.

In its approach march, the team observed but did not engage a rebel foot patrol on the left bank of the river, instead moving passed the patrol without raising alarm.

The final approach march was covered by a CDF MI-24 attack helicopter. However, the helicopter was shot down as it attempted to destroy a separatist Humvee.

The team made it to the main building in the south of the compound, located and eliminated both operatives. The commander seized documents from the person of Putina.

The commander also destroyed three supply trucks, the first of presumably many to bring supplies for a forward area.

The team successfully extracted by another CDF MI-24 gunship, and were returned to base. There were no casualties among the team.

5) On Monday afternoon a rifle group from 1st Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack Msta in Chernarus after battalion recon staff learned a separatist force has captured the town.

The tactical plan was for 2nd and 3rd squads to attack from the southwest supported by two BRDM scout cars. Command squad would separate from the rifle group and attack from the southeast.

Enemy counterfire was very strong with a separatist Humvee providing heavy machine gun fire support. The Humvee crew destroyed one of the scout cars as it approached the technical.

Meanwhile command squad entered town from the southeast and was instantly hit by heavy resistance. The commander was killed exchanging rifle fire with an automatic rifleman. The operation was suspended and the rifle group returned to base.

Casualties were moderate with command squad losing two including the commander, 3rd squad losing three. and the loss of the BRDM scout car.

6) Tuesday night a battlegroup from 1st Bn Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack and clear the hamlet of Cinar in Gunkizli.

Battalion recon staff discovered that a separatist rifle/technical group has invaded the town early Tuesday morning and were in the process of preparing a local defense.

Recon staff also discovered a small group of aid workers were detained by the separatists, so the battle group was tasked with releasing them.

The separatist combat group was headed by Zakhar Prilepin and a female assistant, Laureta Hitaj. Already the group was going house to house to seize food and items of value from the citizens.

The battlegroup split up into three parts, with 2nd squad and Tank 1 hitting he town from the southwest, 2nd squad hitting the town from the southeast, and command squad advancing into town supported by Tank 2.

The operation was a success. Cinar was cleared, the two rebel operatives were eliminated and the prisoners were released and taken back to the forward zone for interrogation.

7) Only an hour after the first operation to clear Cinar had concluded the battle group was ordered back to Cinar to repeat its mission as before.

The rebel force entered town right on the heels of the rebel quick reaction force. This time the separatists deployed a 23mm antiaircraft battery, which the battlegroup was tasked in eliminating.

The battlegroup attacked the town as before, this time with Tank 2 moving in support of 2nd squad. In its advance, command squad found a room in which the separatists were using a camera to record torture of prisoners.

The commander found one identified female lying dead in a pool of blood next to a video camera.

Command squad continued to clear the houses one by one. The new commander of the separatists, Jovan Adamovich was found lying dead outside. The squad were unable to locate his counterpart, Aferdita Nura.

Casualties were moderate. 2nd squad ran into the antiairaraft battery, and lost nine effectives. Command squad lost and 3rd squad lost none.

Posted by: badanov

From: Chernarus Coastal Operations Group
Subject: Weekly Summary of Combat Operations, from October 16th to October 22nd Inclusive.

Message begins:

The tempo of combat operations continued at a slower tempo.

Chernarus Defense Forces, Air Forces and Naval Forces have engaged in four separate operations against rebel forces in four regions.

1) A task force formed from 1st Bn Chernarus 33rd Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack a separatist force in the abandoned town of Lembork in Livonia.

According to the recon staff at brigade headquarters, Alexey Michshenko and Manja Novakovic led the rebel rifle/technical to take over the area in preparation to setting up a forward supply base for future offensive operations.

After a 40 minute road march, the task force assembled just south of Lembork and launched their assault. One tank was to provide tank gunfire support to 2nd and 3rd squad as they hit Lembork from the south.

Command squad followed the other tank to a turn off leading west to Lembork and attacked along the road. Resistance was fierce by separatist fighters. The tank covering 2nd squad hit and destroyed a heavy technical while infantry destroyed an SPG-8 ATGM technical.

Rifle fire found and eliminated the two separatist leaders. The commander seized documents from the dead body of Novakovic. Command squad then pushed further north and found a dead drop of documents stolen from the separatist camp.

As the tsk force was ordered to return to base, a separatist BMP-1, T-34/85M tank and a BMP-2 appeared. The BMP-1 was abandoned due to RPG fire from 3rd squad.

Casualties were heavy. The tank force lost a BRDM scour car west of Nadbor in the approach march. Command squad lost four, 2nd squad lost seven and 3rd squad lost three.

One casualty in command squad was wounded too badly to treat, so the soldier was abandoned to the clemency of the separatists.

2) Recon staff for 43rd Mountain Corps issused a warning order that a separatist armor force was heading for north Werferlingen. A task force from 3rd Bn 33rd Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was hastily assembled for the march north.

The tactical plan was for one tank, one BRDM scout car, and 2nd squad and 3rd squad to take and hold the western bridge, if possible to cross it before enemy force could arrive.

One tank and command squad would proceed up the main road north to take the eastern bridge, and if possible, push even further north.

That plan evaporated when separatist spearheads arrived ahead of the task force, and were positioned on favorable ground overlooking the river. 2nd squad along with the tank and BRDM moved across the western bridge despite spearheads filtering into the city.

Command squad faced the bulk of enemy armor along with tank. Despite being outnumbered in vehicles, the task force's tanks dealt severe blows, destroying by field count, at least two tanks, and two BMPs. The firing was so intense the eastern bridge was destroyed.

Command squad then moved west and then northeast by crossing the center bridge, and took up positions at the church just north of the eastern bridge. By then much of the damage to enemy mobile forces was done. Command squad defeated a rifle attack.

When reinforcements arrived, one of the rifle squads was ordered to cross the center bridge and take up positions to the west to block any enemy advance towards that sector.

The other reinforcing squad attempted to cross the western bridge, but a traffic accident out the squad's BTR out of action. The squad moved west and took up positions. It was immediately attacked by separatist riflemen, and was cut down to one rifleman. When the order to retreat came down, command squad took over one of the reinforcing squads because its BTR was destroyed by enemy action. 3rd squad also was ordered to cross over the center bridge when it was reported the BTR suffered damage to its steering.

The commander ordered a repair truck forward. Once repairs were complete 2nd squad was ordered to hold the center bridge, as command squad headed to the western bridge. The squad crossed the bridge and held its position as the other tank crossed south. The surviving rifleman was ordered to evacuate along with command squad.

As command squad was holding a position to oversee the evacuation from Werferlingen, a T-34/85 appeared very near to the evacuation route. It was quickly destroyed by friendly tank gunfire.

Casualties were heavy. 2nd squad lost seven, command squad lost six, one reinforcng squad lost all but one, and the other squad lost seven. Both covering SU-25 ground interdiction aircraft were shot down. One pilot ejected and joined 2nd squad in the evacuation.

3) A Chernarus Defense Forces spetsnaz team attached to 2nd Army Corps was ordered to The Farm to eliminate a pair of separatist operatives, Ivan Plantanov and Eliza Toska. Both operatives had apparently orders to establish a forward base for separatist troops.

The tactical plan called for a long march from headquarters, 1st Bn, Chernarus 17th Separate Light Rifle Brigade, to a river crossing across the Treshka River west of the Farm. A MI-24 attack helicopter provided air cover as the team closed on the headquarters of the operatives.
v The commander killed Toska with a long distance shot from his AK-107. When the team closed, the commander seized documents on the dead body of Eliza Toska.

The full team was extracted by another MI-24 helicopter to their base.

4) An armored task force from 1st Bn, Chernarus 17 Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to attack the town of Diva Slatina in Leskovets Saturday night.

Battalion recon staff had been aware of the presence of armed separatists since Friday night. However recon staff received a text that the local rebel operatives, Yevgeniy Samarchecnko and Jelena Stajsic has made good on their threats against the local population, and executed between 10 and 20 civilians in a field northwest of town

. The tactical plan for the attack was a concentric maneuver/fire effort, with 2nd and 3rd squads penetrating into Diva Slatina from the east, along with two tanks, and command squad attacking from the southeast along with the BRDM scout car.

All three rifle squads made the town quickly and secured the eastern approaches. Commander squad closed to the location of the two operatives. The commander eliminated the female element and seized documents from her person.

Following completion of the town clearing, command squad moved through town and located the mass execution site.

As the task force was leaving, separatist armored vehicles appeared, thus stopping the other two squads from covering command squad's retreat. Command squad had loaded their BTR, and prepared to leave when the commander decided to perform a rear guard action for 3rd squad.

3rd squad was being cut to pieces by enemy rifle and rifle grenade attacks in the eastern approaches of town. When command squad arrived was when the two BTR-80As began their attack on 3rd squad. Both enemy BTRs were destroyed by RPG fire from command squad RPG gunners.

Command squad's rear guard action released 2nd squad from its trap. Losses in this separate action amounted to two killed from command squad and four killed from 3rd squad.

The task force managed to retreat fully from town to a position 500 meters east.

Losses were heavy. 3rd squad lost nine, while 2nd squad lost seven. Command squad lost four
