The tempo of combat operations continued at a reduced pace.

Chernarus Defense, Naval and air forces have engaged in four operations in four regions.

1) OP2305-26-1 A task force assembled from elements of 1st Bn, Chenrarus 17th Separate Mechanized Cavalry Regiment conducted a wide area offensive combat operation against separatist forces in Leskovets.

Following conclusion of the first operation in Salash, commander was killed when a tank gun round sliced through a scout car while on the way to an enemy BTR-80A. The ensuing explosion also killed half of command squad.

In Granichak, the task force attacked along a road from the southwest, then swept east before encountering enemy infantry and vehicles. A number of enemy reinforcements attacked. All were driven back.

The operation continued with the attack on Krachimir, eventually clearing the village. Casualties were moderate with the loss of 12 friendly infantry. One T-72 was abandoned and the crew evacuated with the other T-72.

Field counts of enemy losses included three T-55s, three BTR-80As, two T-34/85s, two BMPs, and one BRDM.

2) OP2305-26-3 Part of 2nd Bn, Chernarus 20th Separate Mechanized Cavalry Regiment was ordered to Schoenthal in Cham, with instructions to intercept a separatist mobile force.

Contact began quickly as the task force's scout car encountered enemy covering forces in town. Tanks deployed to destroy the enemy technicals. Command squad and 2nd squad advanced to positions on the northern edge of town.

As the task force was taking up their positions, they were attacked by a series of Wagner operated gunships, which did some damage, before being shot down by a combination of vehicle and AA fire.

Attacks from enemy infantry and vehicles, including tanks intensified. Attacks came from the northwest, north and northeast, with three tanks nearly entering the town itself.

Orders to move to Lampashof were issued, so the task force disengaged from Schoenthal, and moved quickly to the last objective, where remnants defended against infantry attacks.

Casualties were light with one MI-24 gunship shot down.

Field counts of enemy losses included five BRDMs, four T-55s, three MI-8s, two technicals, and one T-34.

3) OP2305-26-5 In Beketov a light rifle task force composed of units from 2nd Bn, Chernarus 17th Separate Light Rifle Brigade were moved to Sevastianovo with orders to stop an attempt by separatist forces to capture the town.

In the defensive deployment, 3rd squad was posted in the west, 2nd squad in the middle, with command squad in the east. Two BRDM scout cars and two BRDM At vehicles were posted on the flanks of the deployment.

Three of the rifle attacks hit command squad in sequence, including Wagner and Russian militia units. All were driven back by counterfire. More attacks struck positions of 2nd squad, and those, too were driven back.

Several enemy vehicles did penetrate the task force's cordon, but were stopped before they did much damage. The gunship, detached from 2nd Corps aviation units provided some help in destroying enemy vehicles.

The gunship was downed about three kilometers in enemy territory, necessitating a recovery mission. The air crew, which were unharmed, were safely evacuated with the remaining BRDM.

Casualties were moderate. Command squad lost three, as did 2nd squad. 3rd squad lost four. Both scout cars and one BRDM AT vehicles were destroyed.

4) OP2305-26-6 In northern Chernarus, a task force formed from 1st Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Mountain Rifle Brigade was ordered to march on Gorka with instructions to prevent its takeover by enemy separatist forces.

The task force deployed along a solid line running east to west, with command squad anchoring the east side and 2nd squad anchoring the west.

Most infantry attacks hit command squad's sector, from the east and the northeast. Some attacks fell on the other two rifle squad sectors as well. Attackers included Russian speaking militia, and private contractors.

After successfully holding Gorka, the task force was ordered to pull back to base.

Casualties were moderate with 2nd squad losing five, 3rd squad losing two and command squad losing its commander. The supporting gunship was shot down with the loss of the air crew.

Field counts of enemy losses included one Humvee and at least five technicals.
