Maybe.- - - -"No time to celebrate," comes another woman's voice, the commander of the other wiesel in your company. "We've got a massed dust cloud to the north. The cavalry is coming!"You turn your optics to the north, spotting the faint, distant cloud of dust."Recon!" you command into your radio. "I need eyes on ASAP, get to that hill to the east and start looking for shit!""Copy that," Pearl replies.You quickly pull out your map in order to survey your situation. You draw a big circle to your north, between you and Magdeburg, with a question mark. "Enemy?" To your south, you've already noted Salle as a bandit outpost. To your south and east is the radiation zone and Leipzig. You're surrounded by many ex-villages, now ruins."Recon to lead, we have eyes on the enemy," Pearl chimes in."Copy that, what's your report?""Many BMPs, mostly -2s, and I can see at least a pair of T-55s. We can't give you exact numbers yet.""Got it," you say.>Bring them back, they're too exposed on that hill>Keep them there, we need their eyes>Other

how much meat can you get from one tank?
>>47846540As much as you can kill
"Recon, hold your position and give us good eyes, we'll need you there.""Got it, Lead! We won't let you down!" Pearl replies."This is Rubber Duck, supply convoy is bugging out. We'll see you on the other side, Edelweiss.""Good luck," you say. "Alright, to the rest of you, we'll have to deal with this fast. We might be able to use some of these ruins as concealment in order to set up an ambush.""Objection," Von Grimmelhausen replies. "That would be cowardly and unbecoming of a gentleman.""Well, what do you suggest then?" you say, ticked off."We face them in open combat in the field! They will tremble at our bravery!""Are you nuts? De-fucking-nied.""Um," Pearl starts. "There's a treeline to the south that you can use. You should be able to get good angles on their advance, but if it were me, that would be the first place I would look, so...">Go for the ruins, ambush them>Go for the treeline. Predictable, but most useful.>Maybe Grimm has a point?>Other

"We'll fall back to the treeline," you order. "Grimm will handle the north, we will handle the south.""Copy that, Edelweiss," comes Grimm's grim reply. "Are you quite certain we couldn't-"You cut him off. "Break break break, we have reports of rampant stupidity on the net.""..." Von Grimm neglects to reply.Your two tanks split up and make your way to your areas. You find a little hollow in the ground, possibly from a pulled up stump, that's just large enough to fit your tank. It's not deep enough to make a true hull down, but you don't have enough time. A wind blows through the leaves, setting you on edge."Rubber Duck to Edelweiss, one last piece of advice. The THO has an emergency distress button. Just call mayday over the emergency band and they'll dispatch some air cover. You'll have to cover the expenses, though.""Copy that, Rubber Duck," you reply.There's silence over the radio for a few minutes, nothing but the sound of the wind in the leaves and the distant rumbling of engines. This is only your second fight, and you're quite outnumbered.Pearl breaks in over the net. "Recon to Lead, we've got good shots to start firing. They're crossing the river now, and Lara has the TOW lined up. Shall we fire?">Nuh uh, stay hidden, you're exposed enough as is>Go ahead take as many shots as you feel safe to do so. We need to thin them out as quickly as possible>Other

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MhvPlzelj9I"Stay hidden for now. We need your eyes for as long as possible.""Copy that, Edelweiss," Pearl replies. "They've crossed the river and will be in view shortly."You button up the hatch and glare through your scope. You can see glimpses of movement through the trees, roughly six hundred metres before you. You clap Sarah on the shoulder, and she readies her sights. Erich has a round in hand, ready to load it into the 105 the moment you start firing.The first BMP knocks down a tree as it bursts from the treeline. A second quickly follows it, along with a proper tank of some kind. Von Grimm fires first putting a round straight through the first BMP. Sarah reacquires a target, and fires. The shell sails through the air, whizzing as it goes, and hits the second BMP dead centre of its hull. The turret flies off as the ammunition explodes. Yet more armoured vehicles burst from the trees, and they rake your treeline with autocannon fire, trying to find you.>Focus on the enemy tanks>Focus on the BMPs
>>47848068>>Focus on the BMPsSupport falls, everyone dies
>>47848068Oh yeah I might forget to put >other in there but it is always an option
>>47848068>Focus on the enemy tanksKill the heavy hitters and the BMPs might get scared
>>47848068>>Focus on the BMPs
>>47848068>>Focus on the enemy tanks
>>47848068>Focus on the enemy tanksThe BMPs aren't likely to hurt us, anons, or do the BMP-2s still have their ATGMs? Can we tell either way?
>>47848467You will find outWriting
>>47848493It shouldn't be that hard to tell. It's a kind of obvious silhoutte when there's a rocket tube above the little turret.
"Sarah, focus on the enemy tanks!" you order."Roger!" she replies. She slews the turret around on another target and fires. "Firing!" The thunderous report is followed by the clank of the shell casing against the previously spent shot. Erich loads another round in as soon as it's ready. You destroy another pair of what look like T-55s before the bandits wise up. They start moving forwards in formation, three BMPs in front and a tank in the centre. The BMPs give suppressing fire to cover their advance. You and Grimm concentrate fire on the leaders, holding back the attack. Both of your tanks take grazing fire from the autocannons, but thanks to focusing on the tanks, you don't suffer anything worse."Lead, this is Recon!" Pearl cries, frantic. "There are infantry in the treeline! They have desant troops with them!""Fuck," you reply, radio etiquette forgotten. "Where, where are they?""They're advancing on foot along the road into the village. They're using the cover of ruins to advance. What should we do?">Focus on telling me about the infantry. What are they armed with? What are their numbers?>Tell me about the BMPs. What type? Do they have ATGMs?>Tell me about the tanks. We don't want any surprises, like a 120mm.
>>47849141>>Focus on telling me about the infantry. What are they armed with? What are their numbers?
>>47849141>>Focus on telling me about the infantry. What are they armed with? What are their numbers?SHIT! WE GOT FOOTMOBILES WITH AT WEAPONS!
>>47849141>>Tell me about the BMPs. What type? Do they have ATGMs?I'd expect infantry dismounting would indicate that they have AT weapons.
>>47849141Fuck fuck fuck, as much as I wanna know about the BMP, we can see THAT for ourselves dammit. Have our gunner or driver see if they can tell and>Focus on telling me about the infantry, what are they armed with, what are their numbers?It only takes one asshat with a molotov to ruin a tank's day.
>voted for infantryHOO HOO HOO HOO HAHAHAgood choicewriting
"Alright, calm down Pearl. What are they armed with? What are their numbers?""Number, a company's worth? Weapons... I can see some anti-tank launchers, and a lot of rifles.""Copy that," you reply. A sudden inspiration strikes you. "What about gas masks? NBC gear?""NBC gear?" Pearl asks, searching. "None that I can see. And only a few of them have gas masks.""Thanks Pearl, keep searching," you say. Sarah destroys another BMP without your help as you think. If they don't have gas masks, they won't be able to follow you back into the radiation zone. However, you've already popped your hatch, and your NBC could be compromised if you take a bad hit. Is it worth the risk?>We make our stand here. We can hold, even against infantry.>Fall back into the radiation zone and eliminate the infantry as a threat.

>>47849813We can't really stay in the woods with infantry coming. And we don't want to go into the ruins, city fighting is bad for tanks.Sounds like we're>Fall back into the radiation zone and eliminate the infantry as a threat.

"All forces, we're falling back. Head back into the radiation zone.""I've got a TOW ready," a female voice calls, you assume which is Lara, the second wiesel. "Can I fire it? Please?"Susan starts backing the tank out of the ditch, as Sarah destroys another armoured vehicle. "Fine," you call. "You'd better have an exit!""We've got open ground on the east side of the hill. We're clear. Firing!"There's a bright flash from the hilltop, and the rocket goes streaking away. It blasts into the bandits' treeline, hitting some target with a tremendous explosion, sending a turret sky high."T-62 destroyed!" Lara crows. The BMPs begin to return fire at the hilltop. "We're getting the fuck outta here, Edelweiss, see you soon.""Copy that, good shooting." Your tank backs up through the forest, you guiding Susan around large trees as tracer and shell chases you. A burst catches you across the turret front, but does negligible damage. Sarah returns fire with a vengeance, striking out another BMP from existence. The clink and tang of rifle fire follows you as dismounted crew open up with their personal weapons, and a tree gets cut in half by a shell nearby. However, you're soon out of sight in the foliage, and backing up quickly enough to stay out of sight."Von Grimm, what's your status?" you ask."We have disengaged successfully, kommandant.""Good to hear." You pick out a spot that seems defensible on the map. "We'll meet up this village and make our stand there.""I understand, Edelweiss. You are a good commander.""It's nothing special," you reply. "I just know tanks."Susan turns the tank around and starts making best speed through the forest. You look back through your rear viewports as you leave the forest behind. You can still hear the distant sound of engines. No doubt the bandits will be regrouping and counting their losses, but you know they'll follow.And you'll be there, ready to meet them.This is a damn good job.
And that's it for tonight! As usual, follow my twitter for frequent updates, it's up there in the OP. I'm going to try and run at least once a week if at all possible, and that should be. I'll see you all in a week or less.It's great to be back!

>>47851158step ahead a' ya, I already did
>>47851082Well, at least Von Grimm didn't call us idiots, so we haven't done anything too bad?Thanks for running Sentinel!
