Turn 7 Cont...Col Reshef stared at the burning wrecks that could been seen 500m to his front, left and right. With him were Ltc Mitzna (196th Ar), Ltc Almog (184th Ar), Ltc Ben-Yitzak (409th Ar) and Ltc Shaked (4th Mech). They were standing 250m west of the Tirtur/Lexicon crossroads, shielded by 8 burning wrecks from the eyes of the enemy. "Mitzna, what's your situation?" asked Reshef. "I have about 10 tanks left, most are with Cpt Kravitz's C Co, but they got bogged down in the ditches. They are here, about 750m east of us, firing across Tirtur." said the exhausted commander. "They are my southern most unit. They are now in position to either stay and support the Infantry or they can move north and link up what is left of my Alpha Co. Alpha's Cdr is dead. Cpt Shechte, Bravo's Cdr has only two tanks left. He's here" Mitzna point on the map.. "My Mech Co is trying to push north along the east side of Lexicon, but the bastards are in trenches."
Reshef looked at his friend. He had been blown out of tank when it was destroyed, then climbed aboard another to continue the fight. "You must hold the crossroad Mitzna. Do not let the enemy infiltrate behind the ground you paid for" said Reshef. "The rest of you, get your units off the road and head west along Nahala. We need room to maneuver and Brom's unit has cleared that area out. "When you get to this position, be careful, Maj Maimon's Tank Co is in the area to the north. Contact him on Brom's Cmd net." ordered Reshef.
"Mitzna, there's a unit of Para's coming forward to reinforce your Mech Co. Once the make it to Kravitz's tanks, they are to advance across Tirtur and help clear the trenches."
