It's now 1530 on 28 July 1990, and Captain Stelosavo's TF23 is on the run in Nigeria. They jumped into the country two days ago to save a Cuban Reporter and Cameraman at risk due to a military coup that killed the president and is cleansing the countryside of his supporters. The Cuban commandos quickly secured the Reporter and Cameraman, but when their extraction helicopter was shot down they found themselves attempting to escape on foot to the border with South Leon with a slew of local villagers. They'd been humping for the past two days when the sounds of gunfire met them as they crested a hill. Captain Stelosavo, AKA "Ryder," halted the column and took a look. Government troops were rounding up and executing local villagers; Ryder called the team together to discuss options, and they all agreed they couldn't simply walk on by, they needed to put an end to the massacre.


The enemy commander (top left, in the village) raises his radio to alert his troops and call for reinforcements, so Everest (bottom right) sights in his suppressed M-14 and fires.
He missed, and that meant more bad guys were on the way! To see how the fight went, please check the blog at:

Two more batreps to go, I'm working on them as fast as I can! Again, please leave comments on the blog if you don't mind, Jack CANNOT respond here on TMP.
