It has been one year of peace, no assassinations, no convoy or military bases attacks and most importantly, no violence against civilians. Then, all of the sudden, the insurgents stunned the high command of the Russian 34th Mountain Brigade and the 42nd Motorized Rifle Division with a show of force a few miles south of the capital of Kabardino-Balkaria, the city of Nalchik. The insurgents started building defensive positions around Kashhatau, a small town near the Caucasus Mountains. The intelligence the Russians have is that the insurgent force is based around (of all things!) remnants of the Riyadus-Salikhin Battalion of Recon and Sabotage.
This mission is a custom-made scenario edited in DCS Black Shark, played solo and commanding a flight of two Ka-50s.
|The insurgent's fortifications in the crossroad include an ZU-23 and MANPADs (Iglas).|
|The fortifications up in the hills include only MANPADs and RPGs.|
