I want to profusely apologize to Dogface and another friendly whose name escapes me at the moment for the FF. The bloodlust and sand in my eyes blinded me almost completely and I went very trigger happy on 3-4 friendlies. That is quite unlike me. I then realized that I urgently had to use the bathroom and so I tried to get myself killed, over and over again, quite unsuccessfully, as we cleared the mission with minimal casualties. As such...
...I was slotted as CO in the brief absence during slotting. Oh boy. I do like this mission, though, so I gave it a proper go. After we HALO dropped on top of the MLG420PROHALO marker and mined the road, we headed north west into the first town, clearing it with almost no casualties (but including the medic who was controlled by AI
) No medic is not good. I commandeered an enemy UAZ technical which helped in our assault on the radar dish, which we took again, with surprisingly no/low casualties.
Although that's where our luck ran out. I told everyone to clear the hill and head north and attack the shilka, but somehow someone was still on the hill, getting shot. Then someone stole my UAZ. Then the sniper teams died. Then I died. Then everyone else died. A valiant try, I say. If only we properly disengaged from that bloody hill...
