Ammo Raid

Erkki is in a desperate need for ammunition. Anyone else who uses a rifle probably isn't going to start complaining too much yet, but without a shitload of ammo, that machine gun won't do a lot of warring. So, it's time to do a daring raid on Pyyvaara to see if there's some ammunition to be taken. He's heading for the sled to get going.

Vesa finishes checking his rifle before he slings it on his back. A pair of skiis brought along as he heads for the sled as well, boots crunching in the snow. After loading the skiis up carefully he looks back towards the others.

Arto follows Erkki out to the sled - despite their recent attempt at a punchup, he doesn't seem to hold much of a grudge, and he goes to pat the horse on the nose. It tries to eat his hand.

Raimo picks up his rifle, moving outside to join the raiding party. Being fully healed now, he moves with a bit of a spring to his step, tugging his woolen cap on to keep him warm.

Erkki has left the machine gun as it'll only slow him down. "Hit and run," he reminds his brother, eyeballing him for a moment. But he's not holding a grudge either - he let go of that the moment he punched his brother in the eye. "You all cover me, I sneak in, take as much ammunition as I can carry and then we leave."

Arto throws his skiis on the sled and climbs on after them, getting as comfortable as the sled is going to allow. "Right," he replies, and crosses his arms so that he can warm his hands.

Vesa adjusts his scarf around his face, nodding after Erkki speaks and heading over to start climbing on. "Can anyone else drive this sled?" He asks, glancing at Arto and Raimo.

(From Sled) Arto replies to Vesa, rather flatly, "Not very well. If Erkki's injured, our getaway isn't going to be as fast as we might want it to be. On that note, should someone else do the scouting?"

(From Sled #304) Getting up on the driver's seat, Erkki is about ready to get going. "So, I and Raimo head in from the west, you circle up to the north and cover the village from there," he suggests at Vesa and Arto in his gruff manner. "They spot me, you start shooting, shoot just long enough for me to hightail it out and then we get the hell out."

«Ground Vehicles» Erkki slips into the Driver position of this Sled!

(From Sled) Vesa nods to Arto, then looks at Erkki for the rest of the instructions. His rifle is kept close, across his knees. "Do we meet back at the sled, Erkki? Or split up on the way out? Mr. Mai-…Matti thought they'd shell us last time as we were getting away."

(From Sled) Arto nods once to Erkki, although he does frown slightly. He waits to hear the reply to Vesa's question.

The sled makes good progress across the snow. Closing in on the village, Erkki slows down and drives the animalpowered vehicle into a small almost unused road, before jumping out of it. "We'll meet at the sled, but common sense too… if they start shelling, we'll meat a bit further northwest." He suggests another landmark to meet at.

Saimi has arrived.

Arto hops out of the sled and does a final check of his rifle before putting on his skiis. With that out the way, he looks in the general direction of the town. "Ready when you are, then."

Saimi stands quietly at the back, bundled up so as to hide herself as much as she can- holding her rifle at ready, breathing excitedly.

«Game» Saimi wields her Pystykorva!

Raimo climbs out of the sled. Holding his rifle in one hand, he kneels in the snow, listening for orders.

Vesa climbs out of the sled, nodding to Erkki's last words. He snaps on his skiis, moving over near Arto.

Erkki checks his rifle, makes sure the horse won't run off, then puts on his skis. "Alright, I'll take it once more." He shoots Saimi a derisive look. "Saimi, Raimo, you move with me, we go in from the west. Arto, Vesa, you move to the north of Pyyvara and cover me from there. Shoot them if they start shooting at me or at you, otherwise, lay low and keep quiet. Understood?" he asks and looks at each one squarely.

Erkki holds a hand up. "Actually, belay that. I forgot the road," he says and then curses. "Perkele. Well, means we gotta move in from another direction," he says sourly. "We'll circle in from the east."

Arto answers Erkki, "Understood." Hey, he and Vesa have the shorter walk.

«Ground Combat» Erkki moves East <E>.

Saimi nods quietly, making sure her skies are strapped on as she goes eastward with Erkki

Vesa grins a little behind the scarf, staying close to Arto as they start moving.

Arto skiis to a halt, and hunkers down to keep himself more out of sight. He looks southwards, scowling slightly as he waits for his brother to try sneaking in to the town.

Vesa snaps off his skiis as they get to a good place in the snow, crouching down and bracing himself against a large snowdrift. He pulls his rifle off, setting up to keep it trained on the south as they wait for Erkki. Glancing once at Arto but saying nothing for now.

«Ground Combat» You are now peeking into Pyyvaara.

«Ground Combat» You notice Erkki arrive at Pyyvaara.

Arto continues watching southwards, eyeing the town like it owes him money. He silently drums his fingers against the stock of his rifle, a bit restless, then looks to Vesa and nods to signify that he's seen Erkki.

Erkki is sneaking into the village. He looks northwards and makes a vague gesture in that direction that so far, all is fine. He's heading for a small shelter that is half-torn down - there's some crates stuffed in there, and that must be the ammunition.

«Equipment» Erkki picks up 111 x 7.62-54R .

Vesa gives a small nod back, also spying Erkki moving to the south. His rifle's resting carefully, aimed and ready if it has to be shot.

Dmitri isn't exactly ready willing and able. The war has got a lot more miserable for the Red Army lately, and so he's crouched over a stove in one of the houses, freezing his balls off, and wishing he was back home in Sevastapol. He glances out the window at the poor-assed Vasili who is on duty, in a hole filled with snow. Now he really is cold.

Erkki is moving rather fast, but manages to not be spotted. He's ducking in under the roof of the shelter, hiding behind some tarp and carefully unloading the contents of one of the crates into pockets and taking as much as he can carry and still being able to walk out of here. He glances around cautiously and pauses at times to listen but so far, so good.

Vasili can only concur. Shivering in his snowy hole, he glances over the treeline with red rimmed eyes. He rubs those eyes, as shadows dance in the firelight amidst the white landscape.

«Ground Combat» Erkki moves East <E>.

Arto lies down a bit more, leaning on his elbows, then becomes more still. It's quite possible that he's holding his breath.

Vesa squints slightly as he sees Erkki fade east again, smiling behind his scarf. His attention's still on the area, as well as his ears for any talk to indicate that they've noticed anything funny.

Arto finally breathes out once he's quite sure that the Russians haven't seen Erkki, and just shakes his head.

Vasili turns from the north, and looks over to the east. He leans forward a bit in his hole, rubbing at bleary eyes once more with gloved hands.

«Ground Combat» You notice Erkki arrive at Pyyvaara.

Vesa peers southwards as Erkki returns for another go. His fingers tense on the rifle, eyes watching Erkki's progress and the Russians around him.

Erkki tempts fate and moves in again for another raid. Things went too well the first, he has to try to screw things up.
«Equipment» Erkki picks up 116 x 7.62-54R .

Dmitri blinks. "Comrades!" he shouts in a voice that betrays a certain degree of fear. His rifle protrudes from one window, aimed at Erkki.

From Pyyvaara, a male voice shouts, "Capitalist thieves stealing from the People!".

Arto holds his breath -again- when Erkki re-appears. And that Russian is looking eas-.. Oh shit, nevermind.

Well, there we go! Spotted! Erkki ducks down but he's in a bad spot at the moment. He tries to head for some cover to avoid being spotted.

Vesa suffers 2 wound damage to his right arm.

Arto sits up more so that he can open fire on the Russians, swearing under his breath - although whatever he says is drowned out by the noise of rifle fire anyway.

Erkki ducks down behind an old wagon and hopefully he's now out of line of sight again, being able to hide away and get out of there. He waves to the north though for them to get ready and get moving shortly.

Vesa stiffens noticeably when Ivan declares he can detect something northwards. But he doesn't have time to react before a bullet tears into his sleeve. He grits his teeth against the sound he would have made, ducking his head down.

Ivan loses sight of Vesa, but then Arto's gunshot betrays his position…

Arto glances to Vesa as the youth is shot in the arm - he doesn't hide himself just yet, apparently intent on distracting the russians still. Looks like Erkki has made it so far, though.

«Ground Combat» You hear the sound of Rifles from Pyyvaara (12 14)!

«Ground Combat» Ivan fires his Mosin-Nagant at Vesa but misses!

Vesa keeps his teeth clenched, getting his rifle up for another shot as his arm starts to bleed. The rifle cracks, bullet going straight through Dmitri's hand. "Erkki's out…" He says under his breath.

Vesa gets another shot in, this one nearly blowing Ivan's arm off. He mutters something under his breath that might be a Russian swear right back at them.

Ivan gets rocked by a round that smashes into a shoulder. Blood spurts, but he continues to fire…

Arto flashes Vesa a very quick grin as he continues shooting, although having bullets whistling past one's ears is never good for the nerves.

Vesa tries to start sliding back in the snow, getting himself into its cover.

«Ground Combat» Vesa moves North <N>.

«Ground Combat» You notice Saimi arrive at Grass.

Arto is with Vesa, just about to head eastwards - he seems about to answer the youth's question, but then Erkki appears. So, in way of reply, Arto just points at him with his ski pole, and grins.

Vesa brightens considerably, seeing Erkki and the others once Arto gestures. He'd laugh if that weren't, y'know…loud. His arm isn't so bad that it's interfering with his skiing, still moving smoothly.

Erkki is not wounded and Saimi is following behind of him. Raimo isn't seen yet but as Erkki seems unconcerned it's not likely that Raimo is in trouble. He gestures westwards to the sled, not grinning back - he won't grin until they're out of here. He's burdened down with ammunition, and so is Saimi but they move mostly unhindered.

(From Sled) Vesa throws his skiis into the sled before he climbs up into it, scooting along and making room for the others. The teenager's all grins already, despite the blood starting to dampen his sleeve and despite Erkki's lingering somber mood.

Saimi leans over and looks at Vesa's arm. "You're hurt!" she states, frowning deeply. "Stay still." she says, as she grabs his arm- perhaps a bit roughly, and begins to work on it a little. She pulls out what appears to be Vodka- smells like it too- from her pouch, just a little and pours some on the wound, then offers the flask to Vesa. "It'll sting, as I wrap it"

(From Sled) Raimo climbs into the sled, tugging off his skiis and setting them along the sides. He puts his weapon on safety, peering around for the possibility of chasing Russians.

(From Sled #304) Erkki jumps up into the sled and throws his skis and the ammunition in the back. He turns the vehicle around and people have to almost jump onto it on the run as he's in a hurry to get out of here. "You alright there?" he asks of Vesa, having noticed the blood on the arm. He snorts a bit as Saimi takes charge of it, but got nothing bastardly to say about it.

(From Sled) Arto removes his skiis and climbs in to the sled. Only now does he get a better look at Vesa's hand - he makes a bit of a face in disgust, but doesn't seem to repulsed by the wound. "You did good," he states, matter-of-factly. "Two hits, I think, and that was with an injury."

(From Sled) Vesa gets yoinked by Saimi. "Ow!" He exclaims to that, even though he hadn't made a single sound when they shot him. He looks at Erkki and wrinkles his nose a bit, nodding quickly. "Fine. It just pinged me." Then he looks at Arto, clearing his throat. "God was with me. Did we get much ammunition?"

Saimi frowns a little. "Stop moving!" she says, even if he's not. The dark is hard to see. "I want to make sure it doesn't get infected." she says, as she continues. Mumbling to herself as she does. "Sorry." she says. "I do not mean to hurt you.

(From Sled #304) Erkki grins now. "We got more than 200 rounds," he explains. "That's enough for a serious raid. That was a damn fine little raid." He's not generous with compliments, so he must be very pleased. Then he concentrates on driving them all safely back to the cabin.
