A summary of the situation. I propose that green is reserved for summaries.
The initial Russian "break in" to Nogova has been successful, but the "break out" from the beachhead has taken a mauling from the USAF. Artak (the player), having been briefed by Sefe his CO, is leaving the Russian base at the western airport with his spetz natz team. Armstrong may or may not be part of it, we don't know. His orders are to get through the American front line and make contact with the Resistance and free LCD. (See below.)
Resistance (Russian ally)
LCD, a demolitions expert, was captured while trying to blow up the American airfield in the north. macguba (Resistance sniper) and Homefry (Russian spec op) , spotted the capture and followed when he was taken to a Delta force base just outside Mirov. They are now observing the Delta base. We don't know if they are aware that snYpir has been tracking them.
Americans (ally to the Nogovan Government)
Noon, the US commander based at the northern airfield, is satisfied. According to his Intelligence Chief KTottE the Russians have been weakened by air strikes. They expect to break through the Russian lines within 48 hours, probably around Hill 91 SW of Figari. The fact that Figari is on Everon, not Nogova, and Hill 91 is SE not SW of it, seems to have escaped his attention. snYpir, a counterinsurgency scout, reports that he has discovered traces of a Resistance party near Mirov and suspects that an attempt will be made to rescue LCD. Noon appreciates the importance of LCD and orders snYpir to take a squad over to the Delta base and double the guard.
Nogovan Government (US ally)
toadlife, the Governor, is in his office at Petovice which is in the demilitarised zone. He is concerned by the success of the druglords.
Asmodeus and Kaliyuga, druglords, have taken advantage of the situation and are rampaging over the Frymburg, Slapy and Kost area.
