Operation Nimble ArcherEdit
I could feel the shockwave for miles. They used a tactical nuke and I didn't see it coming. The Element of Destruction as they were called had just been a little blip on the Counter-terrorism radar but they had just wiped out my squad. This was not gonna go un-noticed. They were dead. Chandler "Undertaker" Kimball was my spotter and my best-friend. I could tell from the look on his face he knew what just happened. "Hey Chandler, use your scope to see the hit," "Got it...yep they're gone,". We'd been lucky to survive ourselves but we were on a large hill overlooking the forest and we were far off from the blast zone. Who knew being the sniper could be so lifesaving.
Operation Nimble Archer Pt.2Edit
We'd been traveling for about two hours and we were getting close to the position. From back at the hill I had found an overlook with a perfect view of the enemy's camp. After about ten minutes we had reached the overlook and were setting up to open fire. I heard Chandlers voice "Alright, I got two in the guard tower at 320 ft. Wind speed 12 miles, wind direction, West,". I lined up the shot and fired. A perfect shot the hit went through the first guy's head and hit the second guy's chest. They were both dead instantly. Alright lets move up and take em' out one at a time. We moved across the hillside to get view of the next guard tower and set up oce again. "One man in the guard tower at 293 feet. Wind speed 2 miles in a Westerly direction,". I aimed directly to the right of the mans head and shot. The bullet went right through his arm, and he fell from the tower in shock, breaking his leg as I took the next shot to put him out of his misery. I strapped my SR-25 to my back and picked out my ACR. This was gonna get crazy.
Operation Nimble Archer Pt.3Edit
Nobody had noticed the guard's deaths, and we were at the gate leading to the main barracks. " Lets do this," I said as we opened the gate. I pointed to the building on the left and then to Chandler. He got the message and moved to the doorway. I did the same with the building to the left. I gave the signal and we kicked in the doors and threw in some Flash grenades. I shielded my eyes, I opened fire, and took down three tangos in a controlled burst. I nearly took some fire too the leg but moved behind cover until I got the chance too take out the remaining troops with quick shots to the chests. I ran to the other building and found that although he had killed all of the enemy troops Lt. Kimball had taken two shots to the left shoulder. He was covered in blood and I knew he needed help quickly before he bled out. I grabbed some first aid materials from my field pack and cleaned the wound. I used my prongs to pull out the bullet, a 7.62x39 from an AK-74, and bandaged the wound. I told him to stay in the building while I went to plant Semtex on the Officers Quarters and Fuel Dump. Once I had planted at the Fuel Depot and Officers Barracks, I ran back to meet with Chandler. "Alright Lieutenant, I've set up a marker so the helicopter can pick us up. I heard the sound of the Blackhawk and brought Lt. Kimball to the rescue team. They sent down a stretcher to pick up Chandler and we were raised on the line to the heli. By the time we were in the chopper the Officers had started firing at us. I flipped the switch and the Semtex charges went off, completely annihilating the remains of the enemy base. Sweet..SWEET revenge.
We had made the Element of Destruction pay. But it was bittersweet; Lt. Kimball hadn't made it. His last words were "I ain't dead yet,". He was 3 hours later.
Operation Acid GambitEdit
The new squad already had a Marksman named Pvt. Bogames so I had to make my way to the front with my team. We had an LAV named Blackjack and it was a Stryker from the 22nd Armored Division. We had been transfered to a base about 40 klicks Southeast of an Afghan city named Ghazni. Bogames' rifle was more of a DMR. He had a Mk.12 Mod X SPR, and it only had a EOTech 512 sight. But I could see why considering the area we were going. We were heading out to clear a small villiage on the outskirts of the city.
Operation Acid Gambit Pt.2Edit
We were driving through the streets in our HUMVEE when some flashes dotted the window next to my face and I instantly knew what was happening. I told the driver "Head into that alley NOW!". The Stryker pulled in behind us and opened fire on the windows where the muzzle flashes were at.
