Roughly 5km south of Campbell Town, your lead APC strikes an IED laid by MAF SF in the area. The driver of the APC has sustained injuries to his back and the Platoon medic assesses it is too dangerous to move him without an ambulance. On top of that, two soldiers have significant head wounds and one is unconscious. You are wary of further explosions or attacks igniting the fuel truck, and the Convoy is vulnerable, stationary in the open on the Midlands HWY. The infantry Platoon (I32)  remains mounted and are requesting to dismount.
