We are tasked with clearing out any defensive positions we meet along the road. Move to “Sielec” and wait for the remaining of the ally forces. It is important that we stick to the MSR. We have unconfirmed intel of mines, so do not move far away from the road itself.
ObjectivesObjective 1: The French resistance has informed us that an ammo depot in the north part of Nizny is beaing emptied. As our first objective on the road to clearing MSR queen, we are tasked with destroying any vehicles carrying German ammunition. Objective 2: Once again our French friends from the resistance have given us intel on a German trench line. We are to move to the city of Gryzybow and from there attack and clear the German fortified position just north of the town. Objective 3: As the last assignment we are to clear out the city of Sielec. We have limited pictures of the city, but some of them show fortified positions. We have intel that there is some kind of fortification at the church hill and just to the west of town. If we should reach the town before the remaining of the ally forces, we are to take the town ourself and afterwards set up defensives and wait for their arrival. The key locations in the town will be the two roads linking MSR President and Legionnaires to MSR Queen.
