Command squad withdrew and awaited 2nd Squad's arrival before beginning a second assault into town. Tank 3 and Scout 1 tried to push the enemy back east, but to no avail.

Command Squad finally reached the center of town, clearing it quickly, then finding and eliminating three supply trucks the separatists had brought with them.

In Gross Lidern, the task force launched concentric attacks on the enemy's positions, finally pushing through and clearing the town.

Command squad ran into and eliminated a Russian special forces squad in a firefight lasting less than one minute.

4) OP2304-21-6 2nd Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Mountain Rifle Brigade sent a task force to Kabanino in Chernarus with orders to attack and clear the area of separatist forces.

The tactical plan was to avoid potential enemy artillery by maneuvering from the east and west before attacking.

Command squad made contact before crossing the main north south road, sending both of the scout cars forward.

Command squad and 2nd squad both fought a firefight against local militia and Wagner operators before penetrating the enemy's defensive cordon.

Once that defensive line was broken, commander located and eliminated the two criminal command operatives, stripping both of them of critical intelligence matter including a cell phone.

As the rest of the task force was retreating an enemy reinforcing element appeared, and pinned command squad down. After a brief firefight, enemy was prevented from moving further into town.
