Gareth, loved your videos.
Wonderful setup.
Every time I see your winter terrain,
it makes me cold. :D

Defence of Grozny Tram Station - A Chechen Wolf Pack 🐺de-bus from the back of a BMP2 in response to the Russian threat and a BRDM scouts over the river on the hunt for orcs. Playing around with blue sky backgrounds today.

Very cool (no pun intended!). Great result on all the winter effects on the terrain.

2nd Chechen War Battle Report - The Russian Stranglehold. By mid-January 2000, the Russian army had begun an advance on central Grozny from 3 directions. With their ammunition   running low and their losses mounting, the Chechens were desperate to hold on to the city’s tramline.

The Russian opening moves saw HIND Attack Helicopters attempting to neutralise the armoured threats located around the tram station, whilst ground troops advanced quickly on the position. A brave Chechen BRDM driver gunned his machine into a blocking position on the bridge.

The Chechens reacted quickly to the attack from the air, pouring small arms fire at the HIND, but not before it destroyed a T-55 and some of its supporting infantry. A Russian transport helicopter also arrived, deploying a unit of Spetsnaz, 100m to the South of the tram station.

Intense firefights were now breaking out at both ends of the tramline, whilst the Spetsnaz advanced on the position under the cover smoke. Two Wolf Packs quickly manoeuvred into position to lay down fire on the Spetsnaz from two directions, killing the lead Russian with AK fire.
