Re: Safari II
Taras Vladimirovich Shevchenko:
Good job, Bishop 1. Am coming.

The Sargent told  Darek:

Not too bad, eh?


Darek looked back (and up) at Taras. "No kidding! That was some nice shooting. I saw a couple bodies back there, their luck ran out."

He turned right, into the wooded driveway, then pulled up behind the V-100 as it sat idling in front of a neglected private dwelling.

"There were a few vehicles missing from the road once the Cougar had finished so I would expect some are still floating around."

Andrew's gave another look around behind the APC he was in.

"Lets hope the fight has gone out of them."

Re: Safari II
Kelsey posts guards out in a 360 perimeter, and will search the wounded man and perform first aid prior to meeting Taras.

"Spread out, one man on the prisoner, and them on their knees.  I will check out their OC.  I want a perimeter!  Move it."

"I've got them, Sergeant.", said Abbot, acknowledging her order.

"OK, assholes. Over there. Move.", he said pointing back down the gully.

Corporal Abbot directed the prisoners away from the culvert about 10 meters towards the forest and up against the steep gully wall. They were spaced out about 2 meters apart.

"On your knees. Cross your feet. No talking unless spoken to. If anyone runs, fights or holds out a weapon or contraband; all of you will be punished for that man's actions.  Tell me now if you don't think you can trust your buddies."

Re: Safari II
After arriving on site and parking next to the V-100, Taras climbed out of the turret and landed with a sigh of relief. The turret of the Cougar was a small fighting compartment and the relentless fighting had filled with "combat fumes" the receptacle giving the Ukrainian a natural cammo'ed face. The mixture of cordite, smoke and sweat accentuated around the eyes.

By pushing the latch button on the butt-stock he released the folding metal 'skeleton' stock. He verified the status of the chamber. It was properly fed by standard russian ammo. The fire selector set on full auto. Cradling the AKS-74U over the vest and liftchik, he went to look out for the action.

Darek, keep an eye on the vehicles.

Are there still some merc's running around ? Heard some radio chatter about a couple still in the culvert."

Re: Safari II
Andrew! How's going, man? I heard about Kel taking prisoners. I guess we can "rendez-vous" with them around here to provide escort...Oh well, give'er a call to see what she needs...

The Staff Sargent was checking his surroundings. A great deal of devastation rained down over the vehicles. Fire and smoke was spreading to a extent but no more shootings were heard.

"Right you are."

Andrew's again gets on his radio and calls Kelsey up:

"Bishop 1 this is Bishop 4, We are in position to your South I have Tyler, Bishop 2 and Knight here also. What do you need from us ? Knight 6 is moving to your position now. Over"

Re: Safari II
"This is Bishop 1.  I have Five prisoners, one wounded bad.  Four bishops and two rooks.  I will march us out when first aid is done"

Kelsey makes sure the wounded sniper has at least wounds dressed before ordering the captives to carry the man up out of the culvert under close guard while the rest perform overwatch.

She will come up with them to meet with Taras herself.

"Good calls Taras, good work.  Any news on the hotel element yet?  Want me to radio relief force with a sitrep?  My tangoes siad they thought we were marauders, so thier commanders are doing some fancy lieing."

Re: Safari II
Most excellent Bishop! I don't have news on Hotel. Rendez-vous with me. We'll prepare the APC for evacuation and the Cougar for armed escort. Then, will meet with the rest of the team at thee crossroad. Feel free to radio contact

The situation was getting well under control.

So there we go, Andrews. Make some room in your ride for the prisoners, etc. I have to do some clean up too!

"Right you are, once we get to the crossroad we will move some of the booty over to the second Humvee."

He crouches down in the turret and lets Tremblay know what was going on and to follow the Cougar when it moves. Then he moves the M2 and the AT-4 so that people can sit inside. As he is doing that he checks over the V-100 for any other weapons or intel.

"You guys go ahead.  I'll keep watch on these guys.", Abbot shouted back.  He took a few steps back and positioned the culvert to his back.  This enabled him to watch both the prisoners and the approach from the west.

Back at the market, Wayne was listening to the radio chatter.

"Knight 6 from Knight 2.

"SITREP as follows: Bishop-3 has stabilised the wounded Hotel elements for transport. 2 prisoners remain under armed guard. Just waiting for transport, but we still have the captured Humvee and tank."

Re: Safari II
The prisoners weren't giving Abbot any trouble. However, something about that seemed to be a little off. If anything, they seemed too disciplined for bikers. They even seemed a little too disciplined for ex-soldiers-turned mercs. Although their clothing was a mishmash of BDU pants or shirts (in US Woodland camo pattern) with black t-shirts and blue jeans over combat boots, it was in clean and mended shape, considering the recent thrashing about in the woods and splashing through the stream. Weapons were in top shape, not new (of course) but well-maintained.

Not all prisoners were itching to start trouble; typically, when they surrendered it was for what they thought was a good reason and after giving up mentally as well as physically. These men seemed to be cooperating, yet still waiting for something.

Kel examined the mercs' OC (Officer Commanding). She pulled back the hood of his Ghillie suit and then the balaclava. She was immediately confronted by his extensive facial tattooing, one of the known features of one of their primary targets, Mr. Brownstone. His personal gear under the Ghillie suit was about what one would expect: US pattern LBE, M9 pistol, older-style Tiger-Stripe cammies. He still seemed to be unconscious, soon she would have to move him to Hawke or have Hawke come there to treat him to save his life.

Tremblay hopped out of the V-100. He assisted Taras, Kel and Abbot in moving the 4 conscious and 1 unconscious prisoners up the south bank to where the vehicles waited, idling, beside a 2-story rural family dwelling There were a couple small sub-buildings, and they were all surrounded by woods. A driveway led out towards what Kel and Abbot assumed was 248 st.

The V-100 presented a serious challenge to transportation. It would be very crowded with Kel, Abbot, Andrews, Tremblay, 5 prisoners (1 unconscious) and gear inside, including a captured M2HB, ammunition and an AT-4 rocket. In her opinion, controlling the prisoners would be difficult should they decide to resist. On the bright side, the 4 conscious prisoners seemed to be cooperating.

So far, there was no reply from the reaction element that was on the way from New West. As it was about a half hour's cautious drive, they wouldn't expect to see anyone for another 20 minutes, at least. And there was still considerable interference on the radio, it was important to note this did not end with the elimination of the enemy force element. Their assigned analogue frequencies were still being jammed, and even the long-range digital net was hit-and-miss.

Re: Safari II

While he was waiting for the others to return with the prisoners Andrews did some poking around the residence they had parked next to. He made sure to let Knight element know what he was doing as he walked around the structures looking for resent disturbance, rifle at the ready.

In reply to Thomas Matthew Andrews (msg # 514):

The house looked like it had been recently occupied and was in good repair. For that matter, it might still be occupied, its owners too afraid to stick their heads out with all the explosions and gunfire in the extremely close proximity.

After helping wrangle the prisoners, Tyler and Koldan headed past him to 248st to get Tyler's vintage Dodge Charger, parked a half-block south. (Although, in farm country a block was a fair ways.)

Re: Safari II
Kelsey would send two of her men back to get their HMMWV and the other two would remain to watch the prisoners.

"They are waiting for something, maybe a chance to escape, maybe they have more friends.  They might even be US troops operating in our country.  Too tidy."

In reply to helbent4 (msg # 515):

Andrew's did not want to disturb the inhabitants of the house any more then they had all ready. He returned to the cougar and let Knight know he thought the house was occupied and that he was joining the main group at the culvert.

He made his way through the trees and linked up with the others. Andrew's gave Kel a SITREP of their movements and enemy contact. He then went for a look at the culvert he had nearly fell in front of. He looked up at the chain linked fence he was climbing over and let out a low whistle as he saw the height.

He then decided to have a closer look and with his rifle at the shoulder enters the pipe. He lets all call signs know his intention over the radio before heading in.
