In the Humvee, Tyler was keeping watch on the road to the east and west.

Re: Safari II
In the woods, neither Kel nor Abbot saw anyone moving down by the stream, or in the woods. Just the flaming wreck of the car and the motionless man in the Ghillie suit.

Taras loaded a HESH round and took careful aim. It seemed like an easy shot but there was drifting smoke from the now-burning trees, set alight by fuel from the exploded car. He pushed the trigger pedal and the cannon fired, recoiling smoothly backwards. There was a flash and blossom of smoke that obscured the V-100 for a moment. It was hard to tell the damage.

"To be honest I don't think we need to, looks like Knight has this under control. Tremblay and I are going to run interference down the left-hand side of the road."

He jumps down from the tank and gives a thumbs up to Tremblay. If no one voices their disapproval he will move out at a run through the shop. He will continue through the overgrown back gardens with his rifle at his shoulder scanning forward and right covering the road. He keyed his radio:

"Bishop 1, this is Bishop 4 we are moving down the left-hand side of 248 Street."

Kelsey makes certain that the man in the ghilie suit is neutralized, then kneeling by the body she broadcasts.

"This is Bishop One, Abbott and I are near where that car landed.  We have neutralized a sniper with a Barrett."

Re: Safari II
Hawke started treating the injured gunner. Definitely concussed, and he confirmed he had been out for several minutes. He aso had 1st and 2n degree burns. The tank was empty save for the remains of the loader in the turret basket and the body of the TC on top.

ooc: Sure, please go over the protocol

Still keyed-up with adrenaline, Tremblay nodded to Cpl. Hawke, Pvt. Droz, and Seaman Lo.

"Hey, you guys keep it loose. Andrews, you want me to keep packing the Carlie Gee ammo?"

He kept his C7A1 at low-ready.

In reply to Keith Michael Tremblay (msg # 426):

Andrew's looked at Tremblay and then the double rocket pack he is holding;

"Lets load it up and I can hump it on my back."

Once that was done he made a move past the shop and down the right side of the road at a run.

Re: Safari II
Andrews and Tremblay scurried west through the now-wrecked market's overgrown backlot and onto 248 st. They crossed in front of the Cougar (not necessarily a wise manoeuvre) during a pause in its firing south down 248 st. Once on the right side of the road, they began leapfrogging their way south.

They saw a smoking crater in the pavement midway to the convoy of vehicles where Taras' HESH round had fallen short of the mark, missing the hull-down V-100.

Suddenly, several figures emerged from the tunnel on Kel and Abbot's side, about eight. First were Koldan and Tyler, hands on their heads. Followed them were six armed men, mercs by the looks of them, using the men in front as human shields. This was hampered by the fact there were far more targets than shields and they didn't know where the shooters were located.

"Back off! Or your fuckin' buddies get it!"

Re: Safari II
By this time Taras was becoming quite good at the art of reloading the main gun in the tiny turret. A HESH round were more at hand at the time and the Ukrainian didn't think twice: He reloaded and took another shot at the V-100.

Firing now!

Re: Safari II

Andrews heard the main gun of the cougar still in action. He keyed his radio:

Knight, this Bishop 4 your target looks abandoned, hold fire and we can check, over.

He waited in the long grass for a confirmation from Knight.

Re: Safari II

Andrews again key his microphone on his radio:

Understood Knight, moving now, Bishop 4 out

He made a series of hand signals to Tremblay before moving through the grass with his rifle at his shoulder. They approached the APC from the rear stopping periodically to listen. Once they made it to the APC Andrews prepared a FRAG grenade before taking a peek through one of the open hatches.

Before Taras could take the last shot, Darek realised that friendlies were far too close to the target. It was possible they would be wounded or killed if Taras missed, or even if he hit.

"Don't shoot, Taras! Our own guys are in the target area! They could get hurt or killed!"

Kelsey adjusts her position carefully, and starts taking aim at one of the soldiers who are taking aim on the prisoners.  If they seem to have spotted her and the corporal, she will shoot them regardless.

Re: Safari II
As the group passed the body of the sniper, one of the men not wrangling a hostage lifted him up and put him in a fireman's carry. One of the men recovered the Barrett sniper rifle.

When Kel transmitted, one of the men in the back (who was carrying what looked to be Tyler and Koldan's gear) said something to the leader, who was using Tyler as a human shield. The four in the back went to ground, leaving the leader and the one behind Koldan standing. They looked like they knew their business, as they switched from holding their guns on the hostages to controlling their prisoners with one hand and aiming a pistol from behind them in the other.

"Fuck you! If you shoot us, your buddies are fucking dead! We just want outta here, no one has to get hurt!"

The leader was holding a Colt M1911 and had a MP5SD6 on a 3-point sling, the guy behind Koldan was carrying a Beretta with an AK-74 on a tactical sling hanging down his side (and the Barrett over his back). The other four were armed with an M16A2/M203, M249, C8A1 and AK-74; Tyler and Koldan's weapons). All were wearing camouflage jackets with jeans plus black tactical Kevlar vests and black Nylon helmets. The riflemen with the C8A1 had a backpack radio, the other was carrying the sniper in a fireman's carry.

They were all on the other (south) side of the creek. After a command from their leader, the two men with support weapons scrambled up the far side of the gully, presumably escaping to the south. Through the trees it looked like there was a house just at the top of the southern bank.

Up on the road, Andrews and Tremblay were now among the abandoned vehicles. There was quite a collection, including the V-100 and a technical withMa-Deuce mounted on the back. There was no one in the armoured car, the hatches were all open. They saw a few bodies lying in the road with 2 discarded AT-4 (M136) rocket tubes and 1 unfired one nearby.

The shout came from close by and to the right, down below in the creek. Unfortunately, there was a thick screen of foliage behind a rusted chain-link fence at the road's edge screening that area from view.

Re: Safari II


Andrew's put away the grenade and indicated to Tremblay they were going to clear down the length of the convoy. He keys the microphone on his radio:

"Knight this is Bishop 4 you target is clear. We have a situation developing here. We are going to try and flank. Out."

He then moves off down the road using the wrecks as cover on his right. As he passes them he makes a count and hands the AT-4 to Tremblay. Once at the end of the trucks he will enter the ticket and try to come up behind the marauders.

Tremblay took the AT-4.

He also took the 10k Carl Gustav to allow Andrews to manoeuvre more freely. "Jesus, give me that."

Re: Safari II
Andrews prepared to go over the chainlink fence and into the woods.

Just in time, he realised that behind fence and screen of bushes was a drop of an almost 3m embankment above a culvert where the stream passed under the road. He could get in behind the group, all right, if he didn't mind going arse-over-teakettle to get there!

From her perch, Kel could see them reacting to something, with one of the riflemen turning around to aim at the bushes above and behind were Andrews was looking for a way down from the road. Meanwhile, the SAW gunner and grenadier made it to the top of the mud bank, then got into position to cover the other's withdrawal.

Abbot deployed the bipod on the C9 and dropped prone behind the cover of a nearby tree.  He pulled the butt stock into his shoulder and took aim at the squad of men and found their SAW gunner.
