Posted by: badanov

Also on Saturday morning a battle group from 4th Bn Chernarus 10th Separate Tank Brigade was tasked with overseeing an evacuation of 17 civilians from Molbath in Rosche.

The evacuees had been subjected to hours of abusive phone calls, texts and emails by rebel commanders and suspected rebel sympathizers in town. The town mayor made arrangements with brigade command to provide two trucks to assist in the operation.

Rebel forces struck first with an infantry probe northwest of town and then two more in the east. Rebel forces also attempted to drive their armor forces straight into town in an effort to get at the trucks.

The evacuation was successful with all 17 civilians moved to safety. Losses for friendly forces were moderate with command and 2nd squad losing no rifleman, but with 3rd squad taking the brunt of the defense of town, losing seven.

One tank had to be abandoned in town while getting stuck near a residential building. The battlegroup also had to contend with an overturned tank, which was righted.
