(Explanation of current situation)
Reconnaissance Group Alpha
(From the point of view of an LST-44 commander)
We left the 2nd Army 5 days ago. We haven't been able to maintain full speed because of the snow. It's winter time here in Emnaria, and in the west it gets snowy, well I guess the east does too, but only in the mountains. I constantly am trembling at the thought of an ambush. We were sent with 10 rounds per tank and only 500 machine gun rounds.
The next day...
Nothing still. We have had to replace the rubber pads on our tracks with the metal ones, but now ice is too dangerous to travel on. We have reached a small crossroads, I order all 8 of our tanks to halt. Infantry rush up ahead and clear the vicinity on the low ground. However, there is a massive hill less than half a mile from our current position, we can't see the top of it due to heavy fog hovering around it. I sit there, nervously, with the rest of the company busy, and the tanks sitting idle, I order the tanks to get into cover to either side of the crossroads. I park my tank behind a giant stone boulder and inform my company's infantry to scout that hill. I radio to the rest of the tanks, "Tango Golf, this is Charlie, Romeo Hill 000."
I have just signaled for the tanks to perform recon on the hill. Let's hope this doesn't get ugly...
30 minutes later...
I see fire coming down from the hill, I shout at the infantry, "Get the h*ll over to that hill! Encircle them on the other side!"
I order my driver to put get up to 5th gear and head towards the rest of the tanks. As my tank rushes forward, the rest of the hill is revealed. At least one platoon of K.P.P. are positioned on the hill and I observe a field gun shooting at my tanks. Me and 2 other tanks haven't been hit, we spread out and advance up the hill, one other tank has been hit but is still functional, it follows behind and fires at the field gun. A series of explosions happens on the hill, we all fired our guns and then turn to either side of the hill, 2 on left, 2 on right. The K.P.P. soldiers try to shoot at us with AK-47s but they don't do anything. We turn our tanks and aim at them with our MG-3s. I give the order, all 4 tanks open fire and immediately 5 of them drop to the ground. I can see splinters flying about the hill and the hailstorm of bullets stops. We drive forward up the hill and we can see our allied infantry coming up the other side. We reach the top and all of the soldiers of the K.P.P. are dead. We decide to make camp on top of the hill and look for any available ammunition.
