Things are looking Grim

Ambushed by a large force of Taliban and cut off from retreat, an SAS Troop, call-sign 'Dragon' makes for the crumbling remains of an old farmstead, which would provide refuge for the beleagured team. An American CH-57 Chinook, callsign: 'Grim' has been scrambled but will take some time to arrive at the nearest extraction zone.

The British move into the farm compound, it looks suitable as a temporary hold-out.

Meanwhile another team closes in from the northern treeline

And combining with them is a team from the western sector to put immense pressure on the GPMG team

They take fearful losses, but the GPMG team is down to just the gunner himself

The British fire team behind the barricade reacts quickly to give their mates respite, at least temporarily

Reinforcements arrive from west to bring casualties in the copse of trees back into the fray

The MI6 officer goes down but the return fire wipes out that Taliban squad - this'd better not be serious or the detailed intelligence gained from the mission will be lost...

Can the troop hold on until their exfiltration?

  1. Spoon: Know what this reminds me of? Rourke's Drift. 100 men of Harlech, making a desperate stand against 10,000 Zulu warriors. Outnumbered, surrounded, staring death in the face and not flinching for a moment. Balls of British steel.

    Joe: You're bloody loving this, aren't you?
