Op Bacon Bits – After the successes of Op Banana Split 2CAV reformed for another assault on the invading forces. The tasks involved 2CAV moving north-west from the FOB to the small town of Ekali then onto the port town of Faronaki to seize control of a munitions cache. While transiting the road north-west 2CAV encountered mild resistance until coming across an ambush on the Mt. Didymos pass. 2CAV were able to overcome these forces and clear the town of Ekali. A misleading intelligence report from the scouts about enemy’s strength in Faronaki led to 2CAV having to withdraw to regroup and rearm for the next attack. intel that was recovered has led to suspicions that there are enemy in the city of Pyrgos.

AEF and 2CAV members can all be reached on the Team Speak3 address
The last engagement saw the members of 2CAV clear the towns of Panagia and Chalkeia to the north of the Feres Airfield as well as area around the radio tower to the North West. Due to the loss of the radio tower 2CAV is now unable to call in air support. There was heavy resistance in both locations with Bravo taking heavy losses from counter attacks. The mortar in the town of Selakano was also naturalized lowering the hostile threat between the towns of Selakano and Feres. At the end of the days operations 2CAV were able to retain the two pickups, Jamal and Grettle and the small flat bed truck. After securing the small compound 2CAV were able to capture a damaged pickup with a .50 HMG, a Strider and a mortar

TASK FORCE RADIO
The R&D department has been hard at work again testing the new coms system, Task Force Radio. The guys tested the Long Range Radio, Short Wave radio, Whisper Talk, Normal Talk and Yelling functions with excellent results.
A note from the testers - If you die and the other team gets your radio then you're compromised as they will have all your radio frequencies and will be able to listen to your coms.
