Re: Unauthorised Entry
Darek, I'll be going to the ground for the entry. You take care of the machine gun and you'll cover the approaches on our corner. If we need reinforcements you'll be called and our driver will man the MG.I want you here just in case you have to use the main gun. Have it ready just in case. It could be use as a distraction firing it against one of the walls, etc.

When new explosives, featuring thermal effects, were developed in the 1980s, designers were able to come up with a man-portable recoilless weapon firing multi-effect munitions. The RPO  was the first such weapon, developed in the USSR. Later on it was succeeded by the RPO Shmel disposable flame-thrower entering service in 1988. This weapon was intended to boost combat capabilities of Army units and designed to kill enemy manpower inside various protective shelters, destroy fortifications, render transportation and lightly armoured vehicles ineffective, as well as produce on-target incendiary effects and create smoke screens. The RPO-A thermobaric warhead featured high combat capabilities, a simple design, and an outstanding reliability that Taras was willing to carry along for the mission.

Furthermore, the ukrainian will be looking at the terrain in order to implement an enhance security perimeter around the target using the tripwire mines stored at the back of the Cougar.

"Got it, boss. We stopping right outside the gate or a little ways down the road?"

Darek made sure an HE shell was loaded into the gun's breech and the co-ax 7.62mm was fully loaded.

The column was at the intersection of 216st St, the HA clubhouse was east on 61st Ave.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
By looking at the map (slightly outdated) and the terrain, a few things were apparent:

1) The HA clubhouse was a walled compound with at least 3 house-sized structures.

2) It was located 200-250m east of their current position (at the intersection of 216 and 61st ave) on the south side of 61st Ave.

3) The compound was surrounded by fields, now overgrown with grass and small trees. There was plenty of concealment for dismounts to advance on foot but vehicles would be easily spotted if they approached across the fields.

4) The front gate area had several trees but the street wasn't tree-lined overall.

5) A possible route for infiltration was the property immediately east of the HA compound, which featured a large luxury dwelling.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
The size of the compound was bigger than Taras thought to be. Rather than a single clubhouse it was a complex that could complicate the search. The wall around was atestament of the biker's intent. Well worth to take a look inside.

Very well. A quiet approach is in order. I need a sniper element to move up close to that burgoise house. Up to rooftop and get a visual inside of the compund before we move in. I want you to report to me with what you got.

Kelsey quickly dismounts and takes a knee, her carbine up and ready.  She takes a fairly minimum kit with her, and not all that much ammo for something like this with automatics.  Those that know her in combat, though, appreciate that she rarely uses more than single fire.  Very accurate single fire.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
Closer to the clubhouse the convoy came to a halt and Taras dismounted. He opened the rear door shouldered the RPO-A and took a Russian-made, stake-mounted, anti-personnel fragmentation mine.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
The Cougar and Humvee waited for the Iltis to reverse course and go around to come up on the house next to the HA compound from the East.

GM Note: The house next door is huge. There is a 2-story house in front and a similar garage in back (ie: freakin' huge). The garage is closer to the fence and probably has a better view of the compound. Are you going in the house or garage? Enter inside or try to climb up the outside of the structure?

When the Iltis arrived, the other 2 vehicles rolled up from the west. The compound was surrounded by a chain-link fence topped by barbed wire. In front and partway along the sides the fence was masked by a hedge and the main gate looked to be sheets of steel. (Before the war, the gate was open ironwork.)

Smoke drifted up into the morning sky from behind the compound, out by the fields. Otherwise there was no sound from inside the compound. A dog barked nearby.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
Mac drove the Iltis round to the house next door, eyes scanning for any signs of habitation or use.

"I reckon the upper floor of the garage would make a good perch," he commented.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
In reply to Christopher Little Hawk MacDonald (msg # 15):

The garage was 2-stories high, but somehow looked like it internally only had 1 story. In other words, it could store very large vehicles? Quite puzzling-looking. Either way, getting onto the roof would require a lot of effort and possibly entry inside.

As a farm boy, Mac could guess the structure was so large to accommodate oversize vehicles like RVs and campers. As well, horse trailers or other farm equipment. It wasn't barn-sized but close! (The main house had 2 garage doors, that's where the family vehicles would be stored.)

They pulled up to the right of the house. The HA compound fence was on their left, the garage directly ahead.

The two main garage doors facing the road were closed. There looked to be a side door, also closed.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
"Soft entry" folks. We go in quietly and we "detain" for questioning. We are looking for weapons, etc. Rules Of Engagement as usual. If things get too hairy I'm calling the artillery and we get out of here soon!

Re: Unauthorised Entry
Before getting more detailed info from the snipers, Taras took a good look at the walled compound to gage the structural resistance, height, etc.

In reply to Taras Vladimirovich Shevchenko (msg # 19):

There was really no way to gain more information from the front gate area. The open ironwork gate was replaced by steel swing gates, and to either side were hedges in front of a barbed-wire-topped chainlink fence.

He did know there were 2 1-story wood-frame buildings inside to the left. There was a 2-story barn near the rear on the right. The compound also had a rear gate.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
Mac went over and tried the side door of the barn. If that wasn't open, he'd try climbing onto the roof instead.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
In reply to Christopher Little Hawk MacDonald (msg # 21):

The steel gate and chainlink fence made this a difficult proposition.

As well, Mac was actually next door. He and Andy were deciding to either go up on the roof of the mansion-like house or the stand-alone garage to observe the HA compound one lot over. The garage was closer to the fence with a better view but it could be tricky getting onto the roof. It would probably be easier going inside the house and through an upper window.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
The side door of the barn-like garage was open.

Inside was cavernous. One door could easily admit an oversized vehicle like an RV or horse trailer. The other door had a "car elevator" where vehicles up to SUV size could be stacked three high on hydraulically raised platforms. The building was empty now with only trash on the floor and a smell of lubricants and gasoline remaining behind.

Unfortunately there was no upper story to the structure, but by climbing on the empty car lift a window could be reached that led outside and onto the roof. It looked a little risky as some jumping and shimmying up a drainpipe might be required.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
Paradoxically, due to the trees and hedges lining the front of the HA compound fencing pretty much all of 261 street was out of direct LOS. However, there was a 1-story structure, some kind of business or condo, perhaps a nursery, directly across the street.

Mac and Andy quickly climbed up the car lift. They were at the window, which could not be opened (as it could not be reached) but could be broken. Mac could climb out and, using the drain for support, swing out onto the roof with Andy holding and supporting him. OOC: Make a Climbing check, 2d20 take lowest, compare to TN9.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
The climb up the car lift was the easy bit. When Mac got to the top he scrambled out the window and tried to get up onto the roof... easier said than done, and he ended up hanging onto a drainpipe for dear life, not quite sure how to either continue or get back down again.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
In reply to Christopher Little Hawk MacDonald (msg # 27):

First, the window needed to be broken as it was not designed for opening. While the breaking of the double-glazed panes (using a gun butt wrapped in a jacket) was quiet enough there was a degree of crashing as the fragments hit the concrete below.

Now was time for acrobatics. Fear surged through Mac as he dangled from the drain pipe. With a surge of effort he pulled himself up, with an assist from Andy pushing on his ass as hard as he could. Rolling onto the side roof he sweated in the morning sunshine, panting with effort.

It looked like he had made it safely onto the roof. Andy looked up at him from the window, seeing if he was ok, ready to pass up weapons and equipment.

Taras was able to figure out from afar than some sort of acrobatics were taking place in the nearby. He kept the the eyes open for possible reactions.

Re: Unauthorised Entry
There was no reaction from in the compound to what was going on next door.

Once the sniper detachment was in place, they radioed that they could see into the compound. The main building, just inside to the left of the gate (looking from the front) was a split-level, 1 story in front and 2 in the back. There was a rear deck with covered BBQ equipment. Behind that was a stand-alone workshop. The barn-like garage was in the rear. No one was visible.

They could see someone had lit a fire just outside the rear gate. Lots of trash had been dumped just outside the rear gate, up to and including stripped vehicles. Smoke rose lazily up into the sky.
