Stranded troops evacuation July 3rd, 2020 subject logo: MILGAM

A task force from 1st Bn Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was ordered to Ribbenstedt in Werferlingen Friday morning to relieve and evacuate friendly troops stranded there.

Only six hours before, brigade command ordered two BTR rifle squads to remain in town to hold off attacks against rebel forces. Both squads' BTRs and a tank were destroyed, so those troops had no means to evacuate the town.

It took nearly 25 minutes before the task force's two BRDM scout cars were able to make town, but by then, friendly forces had been whittled town to less than 50 percent strength.

The remaining troops were boarded on two trucks the task force brought with them. Meanwhile, task force rifle troops were trying to destroy an enemy BTR-80A, which had disabled one tank with a crew kill and another with a fire control kill.

Eventually, the task force commander destroyed the BTR-80A with an RPG shot, enabling the safe retreat of the remaining forces.

Losses were heavy. In additional to the stranded troops, the task force lost both BRDM scout cars, and the two tanks, which were abandoned. Infantry losses for the task force totaled two.

This was the first full run through of a mission mode I call relief of stranded troops. There will be 12 different missions, but they will appear on 15 percent of the time.

If you have something to add, Fire Away!
