Breaking Out

Orders have been given, and the weight of command rests on Boch's large shoulders. This wouldn't be so bad if he weren't lugging a flamethrower. The big man drops to a knee and adjusts the straps, looking at the small fireteam. "Alright, boys, I figure we'll move south, then east, looking onto the road. That antitank gun has got to be around here somewhere." Boys. Funny, Boch is pretty much one himself.

Weiss nods a little as he looks over at Boch, shrugging a bit, "We'll find it," he offers, checking over his weapon once again.

"Sure, whatever you say," Adler says with a little bit of a shrug as he unslings his rifle.

"Good, good," Boch mutters, frowning. "I can't move quiet and drag this flamethrower at the same time." He looks at the other two. "One of you has got to scout their position."

"I'll scout," Adler says.

"Let's assemble in those trees to the southeast," Boch says, moving off in the direction of 2,3.

Goethe has arrived.

Boch trudges along, the gas canisters clanking together. It's not easy for the big man to be quiet. Spotting the forest, he drops to a knee and says to the team, "You ready?"

"Always," Weiss replies, rather quietly, as he looks around carefully.

"Yes. Lets go," Adler says, as he moves forward to scout ahead.

Boch nods to Alder. "Good."

Weiss nods a bit, looking towards the south as well, rather carefully.

Goethe hurries to catch up, "Is that a town east of us?" trying to read a map.

«Game» Goethe changes his style to Standard!

Weiss nods, "Looks like it," he offers to Goethe, rather quietly.

«Game» Goethe changes his style to Stealth!

Goethe tries to lift up his head to take a look east.

"Its not. Its a clearing," Adler says.

Goethe shakes his head. "Not a town. It's a clearing. It's clear." nodding to Adler.

Boch shakes his head, "Small clearing in the trees." He glances at Goethe and Weiss says, "If and when the shooting starts, you'll need to head the assault." To Adler, "Guess you can help me with this thing."

"I have an MP40 too," Adler says, tapping the submachine gun he's got slung across his back.

«Ground Combat» Adler moves East <E>.

Goethe watches Adler step east, and quietly moves to follow.

Weiss nods a bit as he hears those words, "Will do," he replies, following after Adler.

«Ground Combat» Weiss moves East <E>.

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Rifles from Minor road (3 2)!

Goethe hears gunfire erupt towards his comrades who've advanced, and turns to try to step and flank from the road.

Goethe looks around quickly, "Got them all!"

Michel tries to stab the German as he tosses agernade but misses only to catch some of the sharnel himself

Maxime screams (very briefy) in pain as the occupants of the gun pit get carbonized.

Weiss isn't about to give up, even though he gets another nasty wound. Pulling out the pin, he tosses a grenade down the redoubt.

Boch charges into the room. With some help from Goethe, he gets the flammenwerfer ignited, then lets loose on the defending Belgians.

Adler pauses to put a fresh clip in his MP40.

Goethe looks quickly to the gear stripped. "Nothing useful 'cept maybe the AT gun."

Michel grins as he knows he is about to kill this German and calls out in french "DIE YOU NAZI SCU…" but he never finishes as the gernade blows his head off.

Goethe turns then to Weiss and Adler, "Need a medic?" as he reaches for his first aid kit.

«Ground Combat» Frederic fires his Berthier at Boch but misses!

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Rifles from Forest (3 1)!

Weiss leans back a little, as he looks over at Boch and the Flammenwerfer. "Nice of you to drop by," he offers, ducking down a bit. Bleeding rather bad, it seems.

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Rifles from Forest (3 1)!

«Game» Boch changes his style to TakeCover!

"UH.. y-yes," Adler stammers. He's shot in the arms.

Goethe points south, "The woods…shooting from those woods." while moving closer to tend Adler with the kit.

"Get some fire to the south!" Boch shouts. "Suppress them! If I get hit, we all die!"

«Game» Adler unwields his MP40!

«Game» Adler wields his Kar98k!

Goethe tries to keep unseen, opening the kit and drawing out a length of bandage and antiseptic wash.

Adler goes to take up a southern firing position, wound and all.

«Ground Combat» Adler fires his Kar98k at Louis but misses!
«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Rifles from Minor road (3 2)!

Boch snaps at Goethe, "Let's get on it as soon as you can! Need someone to move south, draw their fire, and I'll be right behind you with the flames."

Weiss looks towards the enemy in the south, frowning a bit.

Goethe ignores the call to action, busy wrapping the bandage on one of Adler's arms. "Got that one. Gotta go help now." to him. He then turns to move towards the flamethrower man.

Boch raises the nozzle and nods to Goethe. "I'm ready when you are," he mutters, wiping some sweat from his forehead.

Goethe nods, trying to pack the first aid kit away now. "Will be a moment." and looks to Adler, "Maybe you can cover us with that rifle. "

Weiss turns his attention to the west for a little while, ignoring his bleeding wounds at the moment. Just in case someone attacks from there.
"S-sure," Adler says, "W-whatever you say."

Goethe starts creeping towards the south, now, ahead of the man with the flamethrower.

Boch glances at Adler. "See any of them? The shooting's stopped."

Goethe whispers, "You've got better shelter here in the redoubt. They're in a trench south, but I can't see 'em yet."

"Its clear," Adler says, "They left."

«Ground Combat» Goethe moves South <S>.

Boch shouts, "LET'S GET OUT OF HERE BEFORE THEY CAN PIN US DOWN WITH ARTILLERY!".

«Game» Adler changes his style to Sprint!

«Ground Combat» Adler moves South <S>.

Weiss nods in agreement with Adler, frowning a bit as he looks down there again. "Probably hiding somewhere between us and the enemies. Nodding a bit as he hears Boch, and starts moving.

«Game» Weiss changes his style to Sprint!

Boch shouts, "AT GUN IS DESTROYED, OBJECTIVE COMPLETE. LEAVE THE RABBLE FOR THE WEHRMACHT TO CLEAN UP. MOVE TO THE NORTHEAST!".

«Ground Combat» Boch moves out of Redoubt.

«Ground Combat» Weiss moves out of Redoubt.

Weiss gets out of the trench, moving rather slowly with his wounds. Frowning a little bit to himself.

«Ground Combat» You notice Goethe arrive at Minor road.

Goethe comes running up from the south. "Adler said we should hurry back to the lines. Is that the order?"

"We can't wait for them much longer," Boch says. "Our orders were clear, let's get back to base before they figure out we've destroyed their AT gun. I gotta get this pack off me before I explode." To Goethe, he nods, "Let's get moving."

Weiss has arrived.

Weiss arrives from the West.

Weiss comes stumbling along into the forest, grimacing as he almost collapses onwards.

Boch has his flamethrower pack resting against a tree and is taking a few sips from a canteen. He frowns when he sees Weiss. "Guess we should find you a Doktor," he says, grabbing his flamethrower and standing up. He grunts, "Come on," then continues eastward.

Running ensues…

Boch arrives from the West.

Weiss has arrived.

Weiss arrives from the West.

Weiss nods, following a bit slowly. "I'll manage," he mutters.

Adler has arrived.

Adler arrives from the West.

Goethe has arrived.

Goethe arrives from the North.

Goethe hurries in, getting Adler into a medical tent.

"Guess we're far enough," Boch says. He takes a canteen out and takes a few gulps. "Should be able to link up without any trouble now."

Boch arrives from the North.
Weiss has arrived.
Weiss arrives from the North.
Weiss has left.
Weiss heads off South.

Boch arrives from the North.
Goethe has arrived.
Goethe arrives from the North.
Goethe hurries after. "Need to get you patched up, Weiss.", the first aid kit under his arm.
Weiss shrugs a little, "Anytime you're ready," he replies.
Goethe nods to that, moving closer to take a look at the man's bleeding head.

Adler has arrived.
Adler arrives from the North.
Adler has disconnected.

Goethe manages to successfully wrap a bandage around Weiss's head, then pauses to look over the wound on his chest.

"Hey! Not straight over my eyes…" Weiss complains, moving one hand to make sure he can still see where he's going.

Goethe hrmmms, and grunts a bit as he tries drawing the bandaging up a little. "BetteR?"

Weiss nods, "Much better," he replies.

«Game» Weiss slaves like a peon for Goethe!

Goethe nods to that, "Good. Let's stop that bleeding. Bullet got you in the chest?"

Goethe examines the wound, cleansing it out with an antiseptic wash before patching a bandage over it.

Weiss nods, "One to the hand and one to the chest," he replies.

Goethe nods to both, "Took care of the chest, now let's see that hand." as he looks down to examine just how badly the wound is there.

«Game» Weiss slaves like a peon for Goethe!

Goethe looks up again, "Good work with the grenades, and that flamer really knocked out the rest in that bunker."

Goethe got a bit distracted, and his bandaging of the hand might've left some metal fragments in. "Ready for the doktor to look you over now." frowning a little seeing all three wounds.

"Not a pleasure lugging it around," Boch grumbles. "I'm just glad they didn't shoot me. I've heard stories of half a platoon getting wounded or worse when a flamethrower gets hit."

Goethe gives a nod back to Boch, "He's ready for the doctor to take a look now. Are we cleared for going to the rear?"

Boch nods. "We are. Let's move, I'm getting hungry."

Weiss shrugs a little bit, "Then don't get hit." He nods, moving along with the other.

Goethe wipes his face with his sleeve, "Glad we got off that fortress alive."

Goethe waves down a supply truck, an old Opel, helping the two with him climb aboard for a ride to the rear.
