I thought I could try to edit the last post by @greendale and display the pictures directly here. First edit worked well but after I inserted the second picture and hit post the forum ate the whole thing. Sorry. I went back in my browser and copy-paste the whole thing here again.

Operation Silent Whiskey
This was my 6th mission with the LRRPs, we were tasked to kill 9 enemies. Pretty basic stuff, right?
Nope. We got freaking ambushed. It all started when I saw some tracks that were left by the enemy. I proceeded to investigate further with Benny, while Cook and Skully kept overwatch.
“This track was left by some sort of local force VC, it is less than an hour old. Based on the track pattern, it seems they move in a group of 14 individuals.”
The jungle around us exploded with gunfire, it wasn’t the ordinary single-fire musket/sks kind of gunfire we had gotten used to. It was a bloody 600 RPM rain of bullets from dozens RP ofKs and AKs. Oh, and they also had sniper rifles… Those bloody things ended up critically wounding both my team leader and our radio operator.
All of this happened in grid 1E, at the bottom left corner of the map. Thanks to our impressive collection of explosives, we were able to fight off the VC forces and aid the wounded while still under contact. We then embarked on the longest journey I have ever had to make in my career. Dragging two wounded soldiers, friends, from grid 1E to the LZ at grid 3C is not exactly a swift operation.
We continued to take fire from pursuing VC for some time. However, they stopped shooting at us some point. I don’t know why, maybe we killed them all. It’s difficult to remember everything that went down.
When we finally got to the LZ Cook was already fading in and out of consciousness. We managed to call for extraction despite the terrible weather. The sound of the Huey blades swiping through the air was music to my ears. I was in tears by the time I boarded the chopper. Thank god we all made it out of that jungle alive. Cook might never walk again… Him and Bennett are both in intensive care now.
Here are some screenshots. It was hectic af, so I only managed to snap one after I had boarded the heli. I got the AAR for you guys too. I had already given out the medals I got. There were 2 Purple Stars, a Bronze Star and a Medal of Honour. I gave the MoH to the medic, the narrator of this story, who under heavy enemy fire risked his own life to medically aid his brothers in need. This was a hell of a mission to get back into recon with. Phew. 😀
I removed all the fancy stuff, let’s see if it works.
*I edited it back in and the forum ate the post….~Lanceat #6466
Tyrud, Dude… That’s just fucking Awesome. 🙁 Shame it’s not a video with said music wafting through the air…

Not a screenshot per se, but today I inserted in an RTX mission and the LZ had >80 % signal…at #6586
Ran into these four fellows on an ambush mission today.
Seconds later I met 2 Regional Force and a handful of Local Force charlies. . .let’s just say my RTO can shoot a mean Grease Gun.
This was definitely one of my better missions, as I also acquired my HVT and took lots’o’pictures.
