Rolling Matryoshka: Charlie Something? AAR
I think I was one of the first to die this mission, which makes a change - it's been a few months since I had that much glory. Not a great deal to say - charged across an open field, came under fire, went prone, crawled, got headshotted. Ah well, at least the rest of my team lived for a good 20 mins more.
I think I pissed off my FTL (Toppo) after the mission by saying the eventual death of our fireteam wasn't his fault. It looked like it was true though - an enemy squad (separate from the other contacts they'd previous engaged) just happened to crest a wooded ridge line right on top of where the fireteam had set up. Even in spectate mode, I couldn't even see them approach until the shooting started.
2 Days from Retirement: A2 Dude, maaaan
Second time ever defending on this map (the first saw me sit in a room for the duration), so I was frequently confused about our location and situation. Once my FTL had died and someone in A1 shouted to fall back, I ran but hesitated when I noticed other members of my fireteam staying put. Unsure if it was just A1 that was supposed to move, I retook my position only to watch everyone else die and realise I was effectively surrounded. Cue much running around like a headless chicken until Wolf put me out of my misery.

Shilkas of Nur: Bravo 2 AAR + Bravo HMMWV Gunner
Considering I'd only operated as a gunner twice before (1: Survived with no kills. 2: Got taken out by a BDRM within 30 seconds), I wasn't looking forward to joining Draakon in the Bravo vehicle. I have to apologise if there was any coms issues between us as he kept hopping in and out of the vehicle, and I'd wrongly assumed Vehicle channel on VON would be the best one to use (as I was in a different group). Had to be my own driver and scootch the HMMWV back and forth a few times, and stupidly opened up on a M113 (there was a certain panic over comms when it appeared, so I assumed the "throw everything you've got at it" tactic was called for), but I don't think I did too badly. Got a reasonable number of kills, some good hits on the chopper that flew over, and sorted out an enemy squad that had snuck up behind us. Would probably have more but wasn't confident to open up without authorisation.
Sadly, we were done for by a projectile of the high explosive variety. My inexperience showed when I sat in the burning vehicle for a good few minutes before realising I was alive and asking for help. My rescuers were then incapacitated by an explosion, and I finally turned from "golden brown" to "extra crispy". Sorry Halop, jRides, etc. - I hope my corpse contained enough cool loot to make up for the injuries.
Missed out on the comms issues in the rest of the mission.
Forgot the name of this one, but I enjoyed it, survived it, and killed some naughty men to boot. Thanks to Head for taking out an enemy soldier stood 2 metres away from me that I somehow neglected to notice. I tend to be a bit reckless when running to deliver first aid.
