With Russian BMPs around the T-72s, the returning fire was predictable. Note the elevation of the BMP's cannon, which is due to the engagement range.

The Russian infantry, hidden by smoke and crops, fades in and out of sight.

Our right flank is under enemy fire. A round from a BMP-2 flies over the ATGM team. The team pulls out, uninjured but shocked to every corner of their adrenaline-laden bodies.

Another ATGM team, on the left flank is well hidden within a farm building.

Russian infantry's inchworm movement across the open field is well and alive. With no weapon systems having a direct LOS on them we call mortar fire onto their estimated position.

But quickly thereafter our attention is diverted from indirect fire weapons towards an ATGM in the middle of our sector. They just acquired an enemy BMP-3 through the treeline and they don't slack in their willingness to neutralize anything.

The missile hits the Russian BMP-3 directly. It's a kill.

Our mortars open up on the ghosts of Russian infantry advancing through the fields in front of us.

On the meantime, our right flank is about to come undone. A Russian BMP-3 skirts the treeline. To my infantry, its engine revs up with the unmistakable sound and smell of danger.

From our center, the recoilless rifle and the ATGM team exchange rounds with the offending BMP-2. Note the BMP-2 cannon shell on top of the HQ team to the left of this picture.

How many victories can a soldier hold against men and steel before he is brushed aside by the blunt force of combat?

Stay tuned. More is coming!

The Russians pressed on to different degrees of disorganization, personal courage and good old misjudgment. For the odd second that we got a glance of them, we did see they held in more regard getting back in line than getting there in one piece. In fight or death, their heads up, rifle butts pressed against body for dear life.

The treeline is getting populated by Russian vehicles and men. This BMP stayed out of sight thanks to the small rise in the terrain.

A Russian marksman at the treeline. The rest of his squad just got smashed by fire from our vehicles.

The situation at our south flank: infantry just moved into the treeline but got contained by the fires from two of our BTR-70s.
