Re: Undercover Operations
They spotted four men with two prisoners. It looked like Koldan and Tyler. The group was walking down the creek to the culvert under the road, and were almost there. The grating over the culvert looked like it had been blown or wrenched off, allowing a way to cross the road by taking an underground route.

"How do you want to handle this, Andy? Start picking 'em off or give them a chance to surrender first?" Mac murmured.

Re: Undercover Operations
"They had a chance to surrender before they started attacking Government Forces," Andy replied, "we hit them now. Can you identify the sniper?"

Andy looked around to find a good firing position and then checked out the group to select the highest threat.

Re: Undercover Operations
"Not sure. He might be up above the culvert, or may have come down to join the others," said Mac. He also prepared to open fire on them, taking his lead from Andy.

Re: Undercover Operations
Two of the men were leading the prisoners into the culvert, and not too gently. Tyler hesitated and one of the guards hit him with the butt of an RPK-74 SAW.

The other two were standing to either side of he entrance, covering them. One of them was armed with an M21 scoped sniper rifle while the other had an AK-74 with BG-35 grenade launcher, and they were roughly of the sane threat level. Maybe the grenadier was the more dangerous of the 4.

Re: Undercover Operations
"You get the sniper," Andy said as he readied his rifle. "I'll take the grenadier out."

He steadied his breathing and as soon as the crosshairs settled on the centre of his target's body mass he rolled the trigger sending a round toward the enemy soldier.

12:29, Today: Andrew Montgomery McRae rolled 2 using 4d20, keeping the lowest dice only with rolls of 6,13,2,15. Firing at Grenade launcher guy (TN10). TN is his co-ordination, this will be modified by range bands and difficulty of shot but hopefully the 2 will still hit.

"Understood," said Mac, settling behind his weapon and sighting in on the designated target.

Re: Undercover Operations
Taking careful aim, Andy and Mac fired a shingle shot at the men covering the extraction of the prisoners. They were kneeling behind low cover, a fallen tree that covered up to knee height. It seemed like the shots hit and both targets went to ground behind the tree trunk, but the RPK gunner propped the bipod of his weapon on the cover in front of him and immediately returned fire, spraying the area blindly and ineffectually with a long burst.

GM Note: We're going to go into detailed turns here. That means, roll for initiative (Mac already has, I see) and post your upcoming actions in terms of tick cost. I would strongly suggest taking cover (2 ticks) and if a shot type is not specified (hip, snap or aimed) it's a snap shot (which, despite the name, is actually aimed but is not really a precise shot.

Re: Undercover Operations
Mac will take cover, and then take an aimed shot at the chap firing the RPK at us.

Re: Undercover Operations
As Andy saw rounds flying wildly around the woods he decided that discretion was the better part of valour and he went to ground and took the best cover he could before scoping the situation out with his scope.

He studied the enemy position carefully, Mac would deal with the SAW gunner as taking the easy target was the spotter's job. Instead he scanned for a secondary target to try for.

Tick Actions:
Total: 25
2 Take cover
4 Go prone
7 Assess position
Total so far down to tick 12

Re: Undercover Operations
After his long burst, the SAW gunner ducked down. The two were moderately well-covered behind the log as long as they were prone. They couldn't really move anywhere without going to their knees, and the ends of the log didn't get them close enough to either more cover or the culvert entrance.

After a few seconds, a couple of green objects were blindly flung from behind the log. They clattered down among the rocks of the stream bed a few metres away. And then started spewing smoke.

Re: Undercover Operations
"You go right, I'll go left, curve in towards their position... use their smoke against them - it'll hide us from them as much as them from us!" said Mac,  getting up and begining to move at a crouching scramble, weapon up and looking for a target.

Re: Undercover Operations
"OK," Andy replied and headed right in a low crouch, hoping that he would see any enemy movement before he saw it.

Re: Undercover Operations
The 2 grenades filled the hollow in front of the culvert entrance with smoke.

They split up, Andy going left and Mac going right. Mac splashed through the creek, then began following the right side of the channel. Andy continued on the left.

Re: Undercover Operations
Mac saw Andy before Andy saw him and didn't end up shooting each other. As well, they both saw the target location was deserted.

Re: Undercover Operations
"Knight from Rook One," Andy said over the radio, "we are at the stream about 20m east of 248th Street. There is smoke between us and the road. I have eyes on a culvert that I believe four tangos have used to escape with two of our men, Koldan is one. I have seen one man armed with a SAW and one grenadier as well as a pair of riflemen. Be aware a sniper with a fifty calibre rifle is at large. Awaiting orders, over."

Re: Undercover Operations
Andy and Mac were standing in the streambed by the culvert (concrete pipe) under the road. The hollow was filled with white smoke. Down the culvert they could hear splashing sounds.

"Shall we?" asked Mac, who wasn't sure if it was a good idea or not.

Re: Undercover Operations
"No," Andy said, "we're just lining ourselves up for a fragging. Pop a smoke into it to drive them out the other side."

He got on the radio and said, "All Stations, this is Rook, we have noises in the culvert under the road. Can anyone get eyes on the other side?"

Re: Undercover Operations
In reply to Christopher Little Hawk MacDonald (msg # 125):

There was no reply over the radio.

However, there was a crescendo of gunfire echoing down the concrete tube of the culvert. It was 6 feet high and by sticking to the sides, someone could easily walk down the sides without getting too wet. Andy's grenade went into the pipe, but as it was a circular concrete tube it landed in the water at the bottom and was effecgtively negated.

"OK," Andy said, "we'll get the ILTIS and RV with you."

He returned on the path to the jeep keeping an eye out for any stray bandits.

Re: Undercover Operations
In reply to Andrew Montgomery McRae (msg # 127):

As they were down in the streambed to the east of 248 st, it would take them several minutes to backtrack across the stream and then up the south bank. Once there, they would have to find the path they used to enter the woods, back to where the Iltis was parked in someone's back yard.

"This way," said Mac, and lead the way back to the Iltis.
