Nice Lyndi. Have disagree ref the chinook escort. The gunship should be out the front to sight and recce the route and prep the LZ if req. keep the enemy heads down whilst the cows go in.

With their optics there's no need to go in front to do any of that. If someone shoots at the chinook they need to be able to see it.

Ed Macy:

"the Chinook lifted off first and we started to roll down the taxiway. I quickly tucked in behind it, our Apache hanging off to the back left, Jon to the back right. All three of us hugged the desert floor..."

Approach:
The Chinook's nose dropped sharply. Jon and I eased our Apaches left and right to take up station above and to each side of it as it swooped low over the desert toward the base... At the last second, the Chinook pulled up its nose, bled off speed, dropped over the wall and disappeared in a cloud of dust. We started to wheel over the city."

A wheel is a circular flight around the LZ with both apaches flying 100ft diff in alt, one clockwise and the other anticlockwise.

Heh.. Considering we just cleared the market and were on patrol with the hotspot of AI spawning twenty metres to our front and the hotspot that spawned in the market that was just recently cleared. Only to have AI spawn there and ultimately mow us down when ordering to pull back to cover inside the market instead of being in the open field.. In the panic I wouldn't be surprised if the man covering that area wasn't covering the sector we had just swept and cleared with no contact considering gun team was in overwatch on the opposite side of the market.. Overall I think it's a mission fault and don't blame anyone for the issue.

On the note of not covering flanks there was a moment where we didn't have our flanks covered earlier and paid for it, but the time you mention in my opinion isn't one of them. Regardless my squad had a ball and had an exciting and intense mission, being in contact once we hit the town right up until the end.
