Here They Come!
The Taliban, without good intelligence on the strength of the British unit attempt to surround and overwhelm them with a decisive enveloping movement. If they can take control of three important landmarks they will be able to dominate the area entirely.
The British fireteam on the ridge is hit hard
Second fireteam advances to the tomb
All-round fire on the team in the tomb
Dog Team runs across to check on casualties. The Taliban react to this movement, but somehow the dog handler and pooch survive, even returning effective fire!

Sniper appears in building just behind British, but his fire is less than impressive (1, 2, 3, and 4!)
