This time the tanks caught the enemy armored spearhead, and was positioned well enough to intercept. But the two T-34/85s bested the Chernarus armored group by destroying one outright, while two of the enemy's technicals delivered mobility damage to the other.
Both 2nd and 3rd squads were wiped out including the BTRs.
Command squad managed to break out of the enemy cordon with the enemy in pursuit. Command squad lost three effectives total.
The second damaged tank was repaired in the field, when a repair truck, escorted by another T-80 was brought into the area of operation. The Bad Guys killed the driver. The truck was abandoned in the field..
The first tank was damaged beyond repair.
Overall, the mission was a success, but it was costly.
This onboard campaign is the toughest one I ever have written, and so subsequently, the most challenging and fun. This campaign is ongoing and missions will be continually assigned.

|The remaining functional T-80 exchanges shots with two technicals. |
By my count it was hit no fewer than 10 times.
