The will to fight of my panssarijääkäri was never as tight as during the last 12 hours. A screen mission that lasted more than 12 hours has put us in the spotlight when the Russians started what it looked like a turning movement around our position.
|Our original screen mission, the presumed enemy movement northwest and our new blocking mission.|
|My command vehicle, a CV 90/30. I have two vehicles, each one transporting at least one infantry Javelin team.|
|Interior of the CV90's turret.|
|The fully-digital vehicle information system (VIS).|
|I decided to create an engagement area north of the FASCAM marker (see map above). I order the FASCAM mission before embarking into battle. The route towards our battle position was through high ground but with lots of concealment.|
|The gunner's IR sight. I always get a chuckle when I read "firing prohibited".|
|From the UAV's screen, the ENY column appears to be small: 3 to 4 BMP-3s and a T-90 MBT. They are arriving at the FASCAM position by now.|
|Time to prepare the battle position. Dismounts out!|
Stay tuned for part 2.
