Our Squad's Plan was a
simple one. Make Our way towards the Pylons in a business
like fashion. We moved
out from the Insert Zone after We’d carefully checked
Our Insert for On-Patrol Enemy Troops. None were observed
and so We moved to a large rock direct West of Our Position
(1) at about 75 meters - All the while checking Our corners
and maintaining a 6 to 10 foot Interval.
Once We'd reached the Rock
Outcropping North of the Insert - We again checked
Our Immediate Area for
Patrolling Enemy. None were observed and so we “double-timed” It
to the Ridge Immediately South of the Rock Outcropping
on the Northern side of the River (2).
Once We'd checked the Area for Hostiles - I as
the Sniper got Myself set to engage Targets at the area
listed as (3) on the Map. Once those Hostiles were eliminated
- We then Proceeded on to Position (4) on the Map. This
area can be a real challenge as sometimes there is a
Patrol coming down the Path from the Ridge above the
River. Once the Patrol has been eliminated or You've
moved by this area without Contact - Proceed towards
the South Eastern Bridge Pylon. Be wary as You come up
on this Pylon as there is a Patrol moving around the
Base of that Pylon, A Patrol at the South Western Pylon,
and a Patrol on the opposing side of the River as well.
The Best advice I can give for this area of the Map is
to designate and locate ALL available Targets / Engage
them once a good Hide has been cultivated / And eliminate
all Enemy that You see before planting Your first Demo
Charge @ Position (5) on the Map.
NOTE : There is
an Armored Column above You on the Bridge. DO NOT Engage this Force as they
will quickly overwhelm You and Your Team with their Superior
Firepower if prompted. Ensure that Your placement of
those Demo Charges is done as quietly as possible and
then egress out of the Area on to Your next Objective.
Once You've planted Demo
on the first Pylon at the Bridge - You'll need to plant
a second Charge on
the Opposing Bridge Pylon to drop the Bridge – Hence
completing that Mission Objective.
Move You and Your Team
back along the waypoint that You’d established on the way to Planting the first
Demo Charge ( Position 2 on the Map ). This will take
You and Your Team back to the River bank opposite the
Enemy Tent Camp and It's contingent of Troops ( See attached
Diagram - Listed as Position 6 ). This Tent Camp is heavily
populated by Enemy Troops. That stated - Before Initiating
any action on this Tent Camp make sure that You and Your
Team have adequate cover to engage the Enemy. Once You
do - Its safeties off and You can then begin to wipe
out the Enemy in the Camp. Remember though - Be patient
as a Tango's need to Bag You is always more pressing
that Your need to bag the Tango. If They're Hiding -
They'll present soon enough and You'll be able to down
them. Just make sure that You and Your Team "wait them" is
all that I would emphasize with this Tent Camp and It's
Once the Tent Camp and
It's Troops are eliminated - This should leave You
and Your Team an easy road or
path to planting the Second Demo Charge on the South
Western Bridge Pylon. Just make sure that You've cleared
the opposing River Bank from the Far side of the River
so that all of the Area You and Your Team will be traversing
as You move to the Second Pylon, is clear of Enemy. Simply
stated – This makes for a much easier time of planting
the Second Demo Charge if You've cleared Your way beforehand.
Once the Second Demo Charge is placed @ Position
(7) on the Map, move You and Your Team to a Position
under the Rock Path that leads up to the South Western
side of the Ridge where the Plateau closest to Extract
is located. Look above You with the Long Gun for a Patrol
of 3 Tangos moving through the wooded Plateau on their
Patrol Path @ approxiamtely Position (8). Once You've
located this Patrol - Target them and Wipe them out with
Now - Move You and Your Team up the Rock Path
to the Plateau tp Position (8). Move as Detailed on the
Attached Map and about 30 Meters from the Extract You'll
see another Patrol of 3 Tangos on the move listed as
being @ Position (9). Get set up and take these Tangos
out as well. Once all of the above has been accomplished
- Its Extract Time and back to the C.P...
