Rumble For Sahke
- Alpha 2 AR, Dogface FTL, BlackMamba AR, Iceraiser AAR
Got to practice my Satnav voice for Iceraiser and fire my M136 at a tent 8 billion million miles away, I missed the two HVT by a few feet because they were outside the tent not inside
I got hit by a good few bullets at several places, there was plenty of opportunity on those coverless hillsides. Serpentine only does so much against the angry bees fired towards you and your brave comrades. I bled out in hellish crossfire nearish to the road and next to Ice, presumably my death spurned him on to his almost single handed victory at the blasted tent.
- Opfor Bravo 2 AR, Awaitz FTL, Iceraiser AAR, Tigershark AT
Seems we lucked out on the helicopter front and made it to the LZ quickly. Bravo took some RPG fire on the way in and we lost Bravo 1 to a well placed Lee Enfield sniper. Once Ice spotted and eliminated him I went down to fire coming from the convoy, not sure if I got him with my burst fire but Ice patched me up and it became clear that B2 was all that remained of Bravo so we held up for Awaitz to get on CC and get some orders. With the CO dead it took a bit of time to get moving again and the mission ended without much of a fuss..
- Alpha 2 AR, Iceraiser FTL, Issus AAR, Tired Hippo AT
Sticking with 'if I get shot Ice usually patches me up in time' plan I slotted as his AR. In the truck it was dark and headlights from the rest of the convoy were blazing so I put on my NVGs and waited for people to teleport back. When we hit the treeline we were under some mighty nice enemy fire, I dismounted went prone next to the truck and fired at three groupings of muzzle flashes. With no more firing coming from the first three locations I turned north and eliminated some contacts Ice had spotted north, I then went about firing madly at moving targets in the trees minding my own business really. Quickly down to my last belt I grabbed some more from the truck and retook my position between a tree and the truck. More contacts were streaming in all over the place, there was shouting on TS about IFV and mines and all sorts of things were exploding around the place. To the left I saw someone on bluefor running madly around the forest quite forward of our lines mesmerised for a moment the Arma gods decided to activate the explosive feature of the tree next to me. I'm unsure if it was GP fire or an RPG but I was hit, I crawled south to the back of the truck and was patched up (again) by Iceraiser, he did ask why I was wearing my NVG as it was daylight by this point. With some further medical attention done I grabbed more ammo from the truck and set myself up south of the truck on the slight rise, giving covering fire for Ice to move the truck, it was here my luck ran out a stray round hit me and I was dead instantly. I watched the carnage unfold on one monitor and amusing youtube things on the other to dull the PTSD..
- Indi Alpha SMG Dude #1, Dogface FTL, Warner SMG Dude #2, Egg SMG Dude #3
All hail the MP5 all hail the Chancellor for she provides the 9mm burst fire!
Alpha set up in a building looking north and east, nothing much happened for quite a long time. Dogface showed off his whistling talents and I think everyone spotted an enemy vehicle that turned out to be a nodding donkey on a second look.. Eventually the enemy hit the village from the west so we went on a flanking maneuver. Before I left I grabbed my spare grenades from my backpack and dumped it, for some reason I'd packed RPK rounds.. We got as close to the enemy as we dared before opening fire, I took one down with a burst of fire and then started moving between cover of trees rocks and bushes. Dogface was hit and called for a moon moon rescue, I did my best getting to him just as another 9mm killed our magnanimous leader. I said a short prayer over his body consisting of "you dead Dogface, you dead" and I moved on with the flank. By this time Warner was dead and Egg needed some medical attention, I managed to patch him up and threw all the remaining grenades I had towards the single Opfor that remained. With orders from the village to return I disengaged myself and egg and made for the village, thankfully my cry of "friendly friendly friendly" made m0ntags rounds miss me as I entered the village.
All in all a nice mission to round things up before testing and a nice gift from the Chancellor! Moon Moon likes MP5
