On Friday evening in Rosche, an armored task force was assembled based on a warning order issued by brigade recon staff to 4th Bn, Chernarus 10th Separate Tank Brigade.

Rebel forces were planning to capture a critical crossroads one kilometer north of Klein Malchau.

The task force arrived just as the spearheads of the rebel force arrived. Three technicals, and a BRDM scout car attempted to penetrate into a cordon occupied by friendly forces. All were destroyed, mostly by RPG and heavy machine gun fire.

Later, rebel force main body attacked with several armor vehicles, including two tanks, but were destroyed as they tried to close on friendly forces' positions.

Casualties were moderate, with friendly forces losing a total of 15 infantry out of 48. Only one armor vehicle, a BRDM scout car, was destroyed.

Another scout car was too badly damaged, so it was ordered abandoned. The task force lost both SU-25 ground interdiction fighters shot down with loss of the air crews.

Field reports are that rebels lost at least two tanks and five BMPs, a BRDM scout car and three technicals. Battalion recon staff said based on those reports, rebel forces have been stopped cold in the region.
