The Takistani Army is overextended in NAI Viking. Their patrols are minuscule in size and predictable in their range. As for the Takistani rebels, they have a penchant for explosives, rockets and extreme range fire. The latter never achieving too much ... We are scouting approaches to the infamous Takistany Army's combat outpost, where we intend to introduce the Takistani rebels to the benefits of close combat.
Enter Akbar Amin, a goatherd who is the best guide to the region. I met Akbar a couple of hours ago in his house for an observation patrol. I was expecting him to come out with his crook but instead he brought his SVD rifle. There was no way to convince this man to leave the weapon home.

|The first two rounds missed. I couldn't see if they were low or high ... The enemy scattered for cover, but the squad leader stayed prone in the middle of the road.|
|The fourth round kills the squad leader. The only way to see that was the tiny change in the shape of his body, now relaxed from the strains of combat. Gameplay note: kill confirmed at the statistics tab in the map.|
