An SUV carrying two civilian contractors was hit by gunfire as it moved through a neighbourhood in one of the city’s red zones. UAV footage indicates that the contractors are injured but alive. The contractors have held the small group of Insurgent gunmen who attacked their vehicle at bay for nearly a quarter of an hour, but more armed men have been spotted converging on the disabled SUV.
A squad of soldiers is in the vicinity and can be on-site within the hour. They must locate the contractors and escort them back off.
|Exultant RPG gunner overlooking the stricken SUV|
|Those contractors are definitely in trouble|
|The inbound patrol comes to the rescue, bounding up the street tactically and taking out a couple of the lone RPG-armed insurgents|
|Two insurgent leaders have made their way across the street and are conferring pending the arrival of further insurgents|
|Those reinforcements strengthen their hand and they prepare to strike|
|The first fire team, led by the squad leader, goes on overwatch from a nearby rooftop|
|Insurgents rush to the rooftops to surround wreck and engage the two fire teams across the way in a heavy firefight|
|A few more recent arrivals lurk around the corner from the second fire team, which has just arrived on the scene|
|More insurgents arrive, close to the covering fire team and causing them to lose their ability to concentrate on the SUV|
|The other team takes casualties on way out from across the street, where a large group has bided its time 'til the withdrawal|
|The sergeant leads his men down to the street to conduct a fighting withdrawal, but with a lot of insurgents nearby, they're unable to make their way to safety in time|
Nicely balanced intro scenario I thought, akin to that Space Hulk classic 'Suicide Mission'.
