Quyen is relieved to have departed with the heavy mine. Her back will thank her as well. Its only unfortunate that she won't be able to see the outcome of her effort. She still had her POMZ-2 and Claymore however.

Climbing into the Honker she quickly secures the RPG under the bench. Overhearing the Hauptmann mentioning setting up an ambush at a bottleneck she makes sure her gear is still ready to go and she is prepared for action. She reminded herself that sitting in the back of the truck didn't mean it was time to relax too much.

"Nice meet." Ondar reaches out to shake McCoy's hand. "I Ondar. Alexei Russian name. Ondar family name.  From Tuvan Autonomous Region in Far East.  Was 4th Guards Tank Army, Independent 'Special Purpose Forces' Brigade.  Under Western TVD General Staff.  Senior Contract Warrant.  Reydoviki.  For making raid.  Is like ... um ... American Rangers.  Conscript in 1977.  Engineer first, then Master Parachutist."

He motions toward his rifle.

"Learn shoot formal in regiment school, but practical get most in Afghanistan.  Then Sarajevo.  Some Chechnya.  Also, Manchuria and Norway.  Not sniper.  More like ... um ... designation of marksman.  Is SVU.  Like Drugunov, made short.  Good for urban.  OK six maybe eight hundred meter for accurate.  Pistol is 6P9. Call it Pistolet Besshumnyj.  Like Makarov, made silent.  Is still confiscate so not kill you all in sleep."

He sneaks a sideways smirk at the Major then nods at McCoy's rifle.

"M25 see in Norway.  Nice weapon when not aim at you.  You call 'white feather' from Carlos Hathcock.  We study Henderson and read Marine Sniper.  One shot. One kill.  Warrior same around world - other idealogy, same duty.  Speak Russian OK.  Some Polish.  English OK.  Chinese better.  We talk in shop when you want."

After a few moments pass, Ondar leans forward.

"You ever been Montana?"

I know they have big horse and cattle ranches there but thats about it. I dont think any nukes hit there not much too hit. Yea the rifle goes to about 1 klick (1000m) Its good for longer range and short also. Puts a big hole in ya. The sight was made in Oregon. Its near Montana. I went to Sniper school a while ago at Ft. Benning. Part of my training. Yea If you wanted to kill us I'm sure you would have found a way with out the pistol. I'm sure your just like me; I wrestled In school when I was young and did Boxing when I was older. You guys do Sombo or sambo right? Great shit! More than one guy has been killed by that stuff. You carry a knife? I went to a school in the Phillipines a long time ago to learn how to fight with one. Great people; army paid for it. Lots of whores. Great time.

Re: Stick and Move
Waiting for the pursuing force to appear and hopefully set off the mine, Jason reflected on why -- in addition to following orders -- he was doing this.  For one thing, he loved riding the powerful Ural, and he was quite good at it.  Among other things, he was looking to prove to Bayer that he was indeed a real soldier.  He would not have minded having one of the special-forces types or even Dawid along with him rather than putting Mariusz at risk, but there was no time left to switch.  Besides, he was used to working with the young partisan; they made a pretty good team.  "Here they come!  Steady..."

With Jason ready to take out the armoured car if the mine didn't do the job, Mariusz shifted his aim to prepare to hit the truck behind the BDRM. He checked his six to ensure that no one would be cooked by the back-blast and readied himself, he would wait until the truck filled the aiming recticule before firing.

"Here, let me help." He started to help Griet clear the jammed Zu-23.

"No the choice I would have made, I would have volunteered myself if I wasn't needed here."

Roadblocks

Ambush Team

Through the green tint of their night vision goggles, Jason and Mariusz watch as the BRDM steadily approaches the trigger point of their planned ambush. The armored scout car moves awkwardly, pulling to its left and wobbling on a wheel that is obviously somewhat smaller than the other three.

Mariusz is about to switch his aim from one of the trailing armored trucks to the BRDM when the scout carís right front tire rolls over the AT mine. The mine detonates in a thunderous explosion, lifting the BRDM at least a meter off of the ground. After what seems like several seconds, it crashes back to earth in a cloud of smoke and flames, careening into a tree on the west side of the road. There it stops, flames licking out from beneath its undercarriage. The trucks following in trail pull to an abrupt halt about 50m behind the battered and burning wreck. Through the smoke and the flickering light of the flames, Jason and Mariusz can just barely make out the shadowy forms of infantry spilling out of the trucks and into the trees on either side of the road, 150m south of blazing BRDM. The lead armored truck hammers away with its cupola mounted PKM, sending tracers weaving into the woods ahead of and on boths sides of the mortally wounded BRDM. The fire is high and appears to be unaimed and suppressive in nature.

Mariusz is unable to engage the armored trucks because the burning wreck of the BRDM is now blocking his line of sight. In order to line up a shot, he will have to cross the road or move out wider to his right, deeper into the woods, where the many trees between him and the target will present similar problems. Jason faces a similar conundrum. The ambush team now faces off against about 50 or 60 persistent and angry enemy infantrymen, deploying into the woods only 250m away.

Main Body

The remainder of the party, split between the Tarpan-Honker and the STAR 6x6 gun-truck, races northwest along the touring/access road through the national forrest just southwest of Kozienice. The sound of a distant explosion reverberates through the trees, indicating that Mariusz and Jason have executed their ambush/delaying action.

In the bed of the STAR, Dawid successfully clears the large, damaged 23mm HEI-T round from the chamber of the autocannon, effectively unjamming it.

Jan, at the wheel of the T-H, decelerates and points towards a large tree laying across the road about 100m ahead.

Actions?

As soon as he's finished with joking around with Stoner, Tucker's face goes from happy to worried when he sees the large tree across the road in front of them.  He immediately calls back to Konrad and the others, "TREE IN THE FUCKING ROAD!  THERE'S A TREE IN THE FUCKING ROAD AHEAD!"

"Who put that there? WATCH FOR AMBUSH!" Dave yells out. He braces his feet in the floorboard wishing he'd put on the seatbelt. Dave also grabs tight to the M240 with one hand and slips the other arm through the sling of his AK. Just in case they have to bail out from the truck, he wants to make sure his AK/BG comes with him, even if he's using the SAW.

"Dismount dismount dismount!" Bayer yells. "Milk, Ondar, left side security... McCoy, Quyen, right side."

"Stoner lets go." he says. Jumping from the tailgate, Bayer (and Stoner) will assess the obstacle. "Don't touch it... may be mined." he says before they get close.

Re: Roadblocks
Grunting in satisfaction as the round hit the deck, Dawid wasn't entirely suprised that they were stopped.

What did surprise him was that they weren't immediately being hammered by one side or the other, as a proper ambush would have a firing line paralleling the road and waiting for them to stop.

"Griet, take the PKM and cover the right side, fire if anything moves. Adam, get down on the floor, everyone get ready to dismount!"

Swinging the 23mm around to cover the left side and peering through his NVGs, he considered spraying the woods to suppress any attackers before they opened fire (do unto others before they do unto you) but decided his low ammunition supply didn't warrant this.

"Perhaps this is just a tree down?" He sounded hopeful although he really didn't believe in coincidences.

Worried about what might be coming from behind, he kept an ear open for their back trail. If he heard the sound of large vehicles approaching instead of a motorcycle approaching, he would shift to the Mk.19 and pray he got the first shot off.

"Adam, wait a second, back us up about 50 metres!"

That way if they had to desperately engage any pursuit it wouldn't be in close proximity to the main body.

He swiftly turned and started moving back to the trike. As he ran he yelled, "Let's get out of here, fast!"

Re: Roadblocks
As the truck slowed in reponse to the fallen tree, Anneka popped open the hatch in the cabin letting in a decidedly unwelcome flood of cold air. A moment or two later and her RPK-74 was resting atop the roof, the light intensifying binoculars that had somehow been assigned to her assisting her in surveying the surroundings.
"Sunray this is Starlight. Is a detour possible?"
Her gut was saying it was nothing more than an inconveinantly fallen tree, not suprising really since it was really just a backroad through a relatively heavily forested area. A few years before and it'd probably have been cleared within hours of falling, no though with road maintenance a distant memory and regular traffic virtually non-existant, it might well have been across the road for months.

Re: Roadblocks
Jason shifts aim from the burning BRDM to the closest large group of infantry he is able to target.  He takes aim and lets fly with the HEDP round in his M203.  As Mariusz returns to the trike, he replaces the spent casing with the CS round in his webbing and lobs it into the road ahead of the blazing vehicle, ignoring any return fire as he does so.  He then transfers the F88 to the sidecar, leaning it inside the compartment next to the boy and gets the Ural moving, swinging around and speeding back up the road, calling, "Hang on!"

Mariusz stowed the RPGs and settled behind the RPK. He got on the radio and said, "Kaptain, this is the ambush unit. The armoured car is destroyed. We couldn't get LOS on the other vehicles and the woods were swarming with dismounts. In my opinion, we couldn't trade our lives for theirs efficiently so we bugged out.

As Bayer approaches the downed tree Mariusz's voice comes over the radio. Clicking on the transmit button he replies, "Roger. Well done lad. Link up. We are halted on the road... setup security on our 6 o'clock just before you reach us, over."

Quyen leaps out of the Honker, AK in hand. She gives a glance towards the tree but lacking night vision, she can see little. If it was too big to move, she may be called to blast it like she had to do in the engineers. As she took up a prone position a few meters from McCoy she tried to remember if she had any of her explosives still rigged and ready for quick usage.

Re: Roadblocks

Clarence deploys on the left (southwest) side of the road, going to one knee behind a thick-boled tree. He scans his slice of the pie, trusting Ondar to do the same. Without the benefit of NVGs, he can't see that far into the trees but the sky is steadily growing lighter and soon, he won't really be needing them.
