GBW- CP5 - EROTEMA – Behind Enemy Lines 4/8 Blindspot

The action hereby depicted takes place at the same time than episode 3/8 (Captain Gennaro).

Grid E8

After the last events, the situation with Xenor has gone worse and worse…

The Filace Ambassador declared that he would not allow the RON to use Xenor territory or airspace to carry out attacks on the COAC. This implied the dispatching of a pair of jets to gather information on RON forces in Xenor, but they were shot down by Xenor Harriers on grid E8 (Studica).

The pilots had to be rescued, and air cover for the operation was necessary, so a retaliation air operation was launched. This operation will involve a Filace (The Beeze) SpecOps unit to destroy an enemy airbase, an Erotema attack plane as well as a Filace sniper team (Captain Genaro) to destroy a Xenor SAM site; the sniper team will be extracted by New Brickika forces (Spud The Viking).

Xenor has many SAM sites in the borders with the neighbouring countries, and this one can pose a threat to the rescue operation to bring the COAC pilots home.

This one is located on a top on the mountains, with a small lake with ice plates on the surface.

What is this soldier doing? Spying on the cows?

Yes! Xenor cows are famous for its enormous size and extra smooth taste milk. However, there are rumors about their feeding and fattening. But, who cares about rumors? What can be better than fresh milk for breakfast?



Meanwhile, a Picarón Mk2 CAS plane is on its way flying below the radar. Captain Cabra on command, with 6 235-kg LGB, 6 AT missiles, 2 AAM and 4 12,70-mm machine guns. This Mk2 is an upgrade on Mk1 (previously seen at “The Death Corner”).

Suddenly, a noise is heard. Not a “normal” noise (the cows, the ice melting…). It is the noise of an impact, maybe coming from a sniper rifle, and he receives a message from the radar control unit of the SAM site:

“The main radar dish is temporarily down. If there is a threat, you will have to use local fire control.”

What comes after shutting down a SAM radar? An airstrike! The Xenor soldier feared something and prepared the SAM launcher. At the same time, the Filace sniper team sent a message to the incoming Picaron aircraft sent by Erotema.

At the same time, cows were leaving the area. Cows are not known for being the smartest animal farm, but they are not stupid!


“Tizona, this is Redeye, enemy radar temporarily disabled”.

“Redeye, roger. My radar warning receiver shows no threat. I climb and prepare for bomb run”.

See the laser red point on the SAM mount!


Captain Cabra pulled up and waited until the bombs were in range.

“Redeye, this is Tizona, in range…bombs away”

Xenor soldiers, without central fire control, had to open fire with the local radar, with a lower range.

This was reported by the snipers…

"TIZONA, missiles inbound, missiles inbound. They're shooting at you" the spotter exclaimed with just a hint of excitement in his otherwise calm demeanor “Redeye, roger, taking evasive action”

A few seconds later TIZONA reported…

“Missiles evaded, repeat, missiles evaded”

Two laser guided bombs impact the SAM site disabling the launcher.

“TIZONA, target destroyed, target destroyed” the pilot listened. 

"Roger that, REDEYE, extract as planned. Good luck down there. TIZONA out."

The sniper team confirms the impacts and prepares to leave.

Judges’ comments…

This is an interesting build. I like how you rounded off and sand bagged the control bunker as it looked very realistic. The SAM Launcher itself is very detailed as well. From there, I think the judges would agree with me that we would like to start seeing you do some layering and working at different heights with more of your builds instead of just covering base plates. Don't take it the wrong way, it's just that we've seen you grow as a builder and know what you're capable of.     

Your pictures are very clean and look great!  The same type of terrain keeps showing up in your work though; a big flat gray set of plates with some smaller plates and bricks on top.  Take a chance.  The whole idea is to become a better builder so try something different and take that jump!  It looks like you are more concerned with a story line then you are with building.  The plane was a nice addition and beefed up your build quality points.    

Hm. The landscape could be improved. Try to make smaller, more detailed builds.     

"A solid build, but it would be just as good if you removed the bottom half. It really doesn't add anything, and it's very similar to your prior builds. It could just be your technique, which is fine, but there is nothing unique about the bottom half. The top half, with the curved shelter and SAM battery, look much better (and the laser pointer was a great detail). 




Be Sure to Update Your AARs. 

Thanks for playing!
