Posted by:

On Saturday, an ad hoc armor group from 4th Bn, Chernarus 10th Separate Tank Brigade was assembled for the purpose of evacuating friendly troops from the town of Molbath in Rosche.

The stranded forces had lost their vehicles, but were ordered by brigade staff to remain in town until relieved.

Losses for the defending troops were heavy with one squad losing five out of nine and the other losing six out of nine. Defending troops destroyed a BTR-80A which had penetrated their defensive perimeter.

The relief force arrived in town just as enemy forces were pressing their attack. Command squad took up a position in the eastern end of town, and engaged and destroyed an enemy rifle squad which was attempting to advance into town. Command squad then advanced to the northern edge of town as 2nd squad took up a position overlooking the fields in the east.

2nd and 3rd squad lost their BTRs to an enemy T-34/85, close to command squad. When the tank attempted to enter Mobath, command squad infantry destroyed it with RPG fire.
v Losses for the relieving force were moderate. One scout car was destroyed by enemy RPG fire, while two BTRs were destroyed by the T-34/85 tank. Command squad lost one, 2nd squad lost four and 3rd squad lost three infantry.

The remnants of the two rifle squads were evacuated safely south.
