The tempo of combat operations continued at a decreased pace.

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

1) Early friday morning, an armor detachment from 4th Bn Chernarus 10th Separate Tank Brigade carried out an attack on Rassau after brigade recon staff learned it had been taken over by a rebel forces the night before.

The rebel operatives in command of the operation, Matija Deprerdoovich and Amanda Garo set their forces immediately to work, arresting people and executing those they suspected by being in the pay of Chernarus intellience services.

The operation went very quickly as CDF forces moved through town eliminating rebel riflemen, some of whom were operators for the Russian Ministry of Interior. Command squad eliminated both operatives and seized documents from the person of Garo.

When orders came down to withdraw, several things went wrong. Tank 2's tracks, both of them had to be repaired. 3rd squad's BTR became stuck on a wall and could not be moved.

When rebel tanks and armor vehcles appeared in the area, all three tanks were destroyed or severely damaged by antitank gunfire.

One CDF tank gunner bravely resisted rebel armor to the last destroying a BMP-1, despite suffering the losses of both of his comrades.

Losses in infantry were light by comparison with total losses amounting to two riflemen.

2) Monday night, a Chernarus private contractor special forces team was sent to Skippari in Virolahti to find and eliminate two rebel operatives, Ruslan Kravchuk and Raisa Svanidze, who led a large rebel force to that location to establish a base.

Naval intelligence also found that the operatives had arrested three unidentified civilians who drove into town unaware of the presense of rebel forces. The three, the commander was told, were about to be executed as spies.

The team found the operatives and eliminated them. The commander of the team seized some documents from the person of Svanidze, which Chernarus naval intelliegnce will analyze for the rebels' next move.

The ground operation was originally scheduled to have two USMC F-35B aircraft, and one ChRU AC-47 to provide air cover. Only one F-35B made the area of operation.

All facets of the mission were successful. The civilians were safely escorted to a Chernarus assault transport boat standing by, and evacuated. One operator died a hero's death when he killed a rebel rifleman near where the operatives were hidden out.

3) On early Tuesday morning a Chernarus private contractor special forces team was sent to an area south of Krasnostav with the task of eliminating two rebel operatives, Ivan Platanov and Annet Rulin.

The operatives were backed up by a large rebel force and with instructions to re-establish rebel control in the area. The operation was supported by two CDF Mi-24 attack helicopters and a CNF SU-25 ground interdiction fighter.

Despite running into a foot patrol a little bit south of the area of operation, the specops team managed to penetrate rebel defenses and eliminate the enemy operatives. The team commander seized documents from the person of Rulin.

One CDF MI-24 helicopter was shot down with the loss of the air crew. The team retruned to ship safely. Documents seized confirmed what Chernarus Coastal Operations Group recon staff long had suspected that rebels are in the beginning stages of another build up in the area.

4) Early Wednesday morning, Chernarus naval air forces based at Balota Naval Aviation airfield launched two nocturnal airstrikes against enemy targets, successfuly destroying both target sets.

The first mission was launched after midnight Wednesday against two ZU-23/2 antiaircraft trucks which were deployed on O'lsha mountain.

One SU-25 ground interdiction fighter and its crew were destroyed by groundfire, but, despite that, managed to destroy both vehicles. The flight commander also was wounded, and his aircraft damaged, but he landed safely at Balota.

The second mission was launched against enemy supply trucks which were being staged one kilometer south of Pobeda Dam. All the trucks were destroyed, and the aircraft and aircrews suffered no damage.

5) Early Thursday morning, a task group from 1st Bn 2nd Separate Naval Infantry Brigade was sent to Vilkkilaa in Virolahti to eliminate two rebel operatives.

The operatives, Simeon Sevic and Xhuli Martini, took over the town the night before and were planning to fortify the area. Rebel forces there were already imprisoning people suspected of spying, and rumors were some were executed.

The task group landed by assault boat deep in the rear of the enemy area of operation, and began, through use of heavy rifle fire and maneuver, penetrated the rebels' defense, destroying the rebel's deployment. On the way, Chernarus naval infantry destroyed supply trucks and several enemy vehicles.

Both operatives were eliminated by other squads in the group. The commander found Martini and seized documents on her person.

Rebel quick reaction forces began arriving just as the marines began to withdraw. Marine rifle and artillery fire kept the enemy relief forces at bay long enough to enable the escape.

Losses were heavy for the marines, with command squad losing seven, 2nd squad losing four and 3rd squad losing six.
