The business of maneuvering armor in tight spaces is a dangerous one. In this scenario, I'm fighting as the Russians, trying to clear up a road for a further reconnaissance mission. The road had only one bend, yet the route was tactically tortuous. The first stop of the tactical route: clearing mines.

|A strip of AT mines has been previously located. A tiny bit north, a hamlet.|
|The road bend in the center of the screenshot has all the markings of a nasty ambush.|
This scenario is somehow related to the one I reported before using Steel Beasts ProPE. Unfortunately, that report is now lost, but let me briefly bring up the main point. This scenario represents the actions of a tank company reconnaissance mission. The reconnaissance objective is beyond the reaches of this map and the lead element of the company (1 T-90, 2x BMP-2Ms) has to clear this stretch of road before the main reconnaissance body (located 10 Km behind) arrives to this area.
|This is the instant when the Ukrainian BMP was destroyed.|
|One engineer is shot. Things are heating up at the breaching.|
|The explosives detonated by the engineers triggered multiple mine explosions. Three engineers fell to these blasts.|
