The backdrop: a 3 men patrol of the 32nd Latvian National Guard Infantry Battalion has been ambushed by pro-Russian guerrillas. Just with enough time to run away from their burning vehicle, the Latvian infantry takes refuge in a nearby church.
In the screenshot above, a young lieutenant deploys his rifles. Making sure to shoot from a defile, the two men in front cover opposite fields of fire (left and right). The third man in the background provides flank protection.
|The Lieutenant, busy trying to make contact with the enemy. In this case, he had to pull back to use the church's gate.|
|The enemy shows up directly in front of the Guards' position. Despite the odds being against the Latvian Guards, they defend their ground and kill many guerrillas.|
|Two enemy machinegunners completely flank the Lieutenant's subordinates, and before the later can move into position to ease the pressure, the Latvians are down to just the team leader.|
