"We found them sir!".
To Hauptman Hans the corporal looked half determined and half concerened as he stood in the door way. The soldeir need not explain more nor did the Hauptman need to ask more. He knew what or who the soldier was referring to. The rogue British detachment that called themselves the space wolves. He did know what sort of drugs they took nor cared what caused them to go rogue. What he knew was that, they took out a West German unit. They might as well be Soviets. Hans slid back the slide of the Glock he was cleaning. Racked it a couple of times before inserting the magazine and racking it again. Time to get to business.
The formation commander and the various officers were assembled in the room with the prevailent sound of murmuring and an occassional laughter. The noise died down as the Colonel in charge of the briefing walked in. "No need for formalities. Let's just get down to business. Two weeks ago one of our formations had an unusual encounter which turned bad when they took a lot of casualities from a rogue British unit calling themselves the space wolves.... DON'T ASK. And... a week ago Col. Steiner took out a British unit which was believed to be part of this Wolves. This led us to this town where our aerial recon units have spotted them."
"We will attack at 0600 hours." The Commander was now briefing his unit. "We would normally conduct a mission like this at dark but reports say the enemy spends the entire night awake and howling...and cursing profanities." He let the pocket discussions die down before continuing. " I will lead Talon 1 to location Zulu to secure our main objective. The Mayor's house is where they are holding the town officials hostage. We need them coz they can relay valyable intel to us. Sgt. Kurt the house is yours. You may pass by the armory to pick up some MP5s. I will lead the other platoon into the dormitory where we could get a good vantage point of the area. Talon 2 will led by Lt. Walter with his Leos to take out the enemy Arty position. We will spearhead in on command signal Red Alice. We will have air support but we will only call on them when needed.... Any questions?"
"Sir?" Raised the hand of one helo pilot. "Can we blitz in?".... "No."
The enemies morning banter failed to disturb those who are now sound asleep. Just out of earshot, they were unable to hear the "thumps" of suppressed sniper rifles taking out their sentries.
