X - No NATO Casualties
Alright, you're on the
defense now. Hostile armours are rolling in, and it's your
job to make sure they never get to their destination. In other
words, it's time to have a tank bustin' good time!
There's a saying that goes
"The best defense is offense", and this is certainly
true on this one. While it would be much more fun to just
strap explosives on the bridge and make it all crash down
on the tanks as they pass under it, you'll have to make do
with a good ol' M136 AT4 anti-tank rocket launcher.
I grabbed Jacobs again
- mainly for his ability to unleash a miniature artillery
strike if necessary - and placed him on Alpha with a second
Rifleman. Bravo stays the same as the last mission, with two
Riflemen and one Support. The Sniper on Charlie is exchanged
for the essential Demo guy with an M136.
Speed is of the essence.
Switch to Charlie. Send Alpha rushing up the hill to the north
and Bravo up the hill to the south. There are two two-man
patrols on each side of the bridge. Send Alpha in between
the group of rocks to the north and issue them the 'Hold'
and 'Suppress' commands - they'll mow down the patrols without
breaking a sweat. Be a little more careful with Bravo, move
them towards the railroad in 'Recon', but not too close. They
might take out the patrols up there if they see them, if not,
don't worry about that for now.
While Alpha and Bravo are
engaging the tangos, move up the road at double-time. Go past
the burning armour and keep moving until you gain a visual
of the enemy tanks. Take your time and line up your shot well
with the M4 first, then pull out the M136 and fire. Use nightvision
to gain a few metres of additional visibility in the fog.
It might require some trying and failure before you score
a direct hit. When you do, haul ass back towards the wrecked
armour and hit the deck next to it. You should be able to
neutralize quite a bit of hostiles from there. Keep firing
at all the Ts you can see, until the second tank comes rolling
down. If the area seems relatively clear of tangos, get up
and line up a shot at the second tank. Switch to the M136
again and blow it to bits.
Take out any immediate
threats, then run back towards the bridge. Hug the north cliff
wall and lie down next to the bridge support pillars. From
there, Charlie will have a good shot at any incoming tangos.
Switch to Bravo and clear
your immediate area if it's not already. If Bravo didn't get
the patrols there earlier, they've probably already fled down
to the road. Move up to the bridge and gun down any tangos
you can see to the northwest. Then continue down towards where
the tanks came from. Go prone at the small path that goes
up the cliff, crawl out there and shoot the tangos hiding
in and around the small forest.
When it looks clear and
you can't see any Ts, jump over to Alpha and clear up the
north side of the bridge. The remaining tangos should be around
the destroyed tanks and the small forest. Sneak down the hill,
take them out, and you're through.
