After Battle Report - Efreitor Volkov reporting
This morning, less than two hours ago, the forces under my command were ordered into combat for the glory of the motherland!
We moved under the cover og darkness, but found the germans waiting in ambush. A short exchange of fire left two of our T-72's burning, and two Leopard II's destroyed. The enemy had hunter-killer helicopter support, but our formidable anti-Air units suppressed them for the most part.
More Leopard II's joined battle during the morning, with my units amassing five confirmed tank kills, as well as a downed enemy helicopter.
Our losses are still being accounted for, but may be as high as 50% of my command, depending on what repairs the technical crews are able to make.
Requisition: Infantry support is vital when taking towns and villages. I formally request that a motorised infantry company be released to my command, as well as more light armored units.
For the Union!
