Good news. 1st Armored won major victories at Utena and Rezekne, and the Russians are falling back on all fronts. One final push and they'll be out of the Baltics for good. Word is the Russian military brass is taking the defeat hard. They're blaming President Arbatov and the other political leaders - there just might be a coup brewing.
We're sending you into Vilnius, the Lithuanian capital. The Russians have held it since the first week of the invasion and it's been the site of some significant action by the Lithuanian underground - the place is practically in ruins. You'll be escorting a tank column into the heart of the old city to liberate what's left of the presidential palace and some other key locations. As the Russians learned in Grozny, sending armor into an urban setting without proper infantry support is suicide. The remaining Russian troops have their backs to the wall so they're not going to go down without a fight. Watch out for snipers and antitank rockets fired from the shelter of the ruins. And, as always, try to keep civilian casualties to a minimum.
