Platoon

35
PlatoonAbout the battle of the French Marines platoon 18 August 2008 of the year, included in history The last war in Afghanistan, as an “ambush in the valley of Uzbin,” was written in sufficient detail. He wrote about him and "Brother".


But behind the academic criticism of the fatal mistakes of command, intelligence, supplies, communications, interaction and much more, as always, people are forgotten - fallen and alive.

Today we publish the memories of the participants of those events, the commander and fighters of the 2th paratrooper platoon (Carmin 2) of the 8th parachute regiment of the French marines (8 e RPIMa). There are no tactics, no figures, no ratings. The paratroopers confirm - in that battle, they really did everything they could. And as professionals, with dignity coming out of the deadly whirlwind of lead and steel, and as people — without abandoning those who could still be helped.

PROLOGUE

One o'clock. Surubi district, mountain range approximately 40 kilometers east of Kabul. Altitude 1700 meters. A convoy of 20 vehicles — French armored personnel carriers (VAB), Afghan army and police pickups, and American-supported airborne Hummers — stands at a rocky slope. Four French armor vehicles still climb 400 meters to the village of Sper Kunday, land paratroopers, and occupy firing positions at the outskirts of the city. Further the path rises steeply uphill. The machine guns of the armored vehicles point their trunks at the target of the French patrol, the pass, and the paratrooper 22, commanded by the foreman Gaetan Evrahr, is beginning to rise. With them is a doctor from the regiment of the Foreign Legion and an Afghan translator. They have to go another half a kilometer up the hill, to a height of about 2000 meters.

THE BATTLE

The commander of the 2 airborne platoon (Carmin 2), foreman Gaetan Evrar (34 of the year, length of service - 17 years).

“As soon as the mountain trail starts to wag among the rocks, I rearrange the platoon in the column. With heavy luggage we move slowly. Plus damn hot. Nevertheless, I order the group commanders to speed up the move.

All heavy body armor, plus, each carries six stores of twenty-five rounds of ammunition. One guy on the rise gets heatstroke and stays behind with the dowry medic from the second parachute regiment of the legion.

I request snipers that they are watching ahead. They answer that nothing and that the first group is located a hundred meters from the pass.
13.45. At the last steep bend of the path, a few dozen meters from the pass, the platoon falls into hell - it is covered with grenade explosions and machine-gun bursts. This is an ambush.

- We instantly disperse over the fragments of rocks, which littered the slope. Our position is not important - the platoon was stretched for more than a hundred meters. A quarter of an hour the enemy's hurricane fire crumbles earth and stone around us.

To hide from a shower of bullets, it remains only to push the ground harder.

- I called on the radio advanced group. They report to me that my deputy and two other guys were killed (radio operator and Afghan translator. - Editor's note).
The roar is stunning. Bullets knock clouds of suffocating dust out of the ground.

- I'm trying to hide behind a big stone. With me there are five more, including a radio operator and a sniper. A few more guys lay down just a few meters away from us, but I don’t see them.

Bullets continue to continuously hammer the ground in front of a group of Evrara. Getting to the wounded is simply impossible.

- The commander of one of our groups makes his way to me to report on the situation. He staggers and deathly pale - was wounded in the stomach. Put it on the ground, remove the body armor and helmet, bandage. Shoot from somewhere from the top of the ridges, and left and right. We are under crossfire. (A group of 50 Talibs launched an attack from the southern slope and from the village of Spur Kundai at that moment.)
Marines are shot, but do not see the real enemy. Splinters of stones fly everywhere.

“My face is bleeding, the guys near are injured, some in the leg, some in the arm.” The sniper manages to lay a couple of Taliban, who were trying to secretly go around us on the ridge of the mountain. But here we hear the sound of shots of Famas assault rifles coming up the slope.
All - the platoon began to respond. The guys are fighting. And they fight well.

The machine guns of the French armored personnel carriers are beaten in pass bursts, holding back the Taliban and allowing the platoon to get out of the trap. The paratroopers are fighting off the opposing adversary, but they are dispersed around the battlefield in twos, threes, or even one by one. The Taliban are trying to get closer, the marines drive them away with rifle fire and throw hand grenades at them.

- Sergeant Kazzaro shouts to me that the enemy is very close. The connection with the troop platoon in Spur Kundai is interrupted, but I manage to contact the captain at our base in Torah. “Act quickly! I was left without support! I'm under heavy fire! This is Bazeus, captain! This is Bazei! ”

Bazei is a town where the French marines squeezed the Prussians back in 1870. And here in the same deadly grip hit group Evrara. After 25 minutes after the start of the battle, the foreman requests air support. Simultaneously, reinforcements leave the Torah (FOB Tora - the base of the marines in 10 km from the pass.). (According to the official version, Carmin 2 requested reinforcement in 15: 52, and air support - in 16: 10). First two F-15 attack aircraft arrive. Ten minutes later, armored American A-10 Thunderbolt attack aircraft began circling over the battlefield. They are specially created to support ground troops, they have low speed and greater accuracy of weapons systems, but ... marines with the enemy share a few meters, and the pilots are forced to return. This the Taliban and sought. Evrar injured.

- I feel a strong blow to the shoulder, but while I can move my hand. The pain is quite acute, but there is no time to think about the wound.

He is stubborn, this mountaineer from Ardennes. Under the enemy's hurricane fire, Evrar is concerned with only one thing - to take his guys out of the fire with the least loss. He sees how the enemy competently takes his group into classic ticks. The idea is clear - completely destroy his platoon. He later admits:

- The fact that I was seriously injured, I realized only after I left the battle ...
Meanwhile, the enemy is firing more and more accurately.

- We are pressed into the ground, the bullets whistle very close. They do not shoot in bursts, but hit them with sniper rifles. I see our sniper taking a talib. He falls on the rock, and his sniper rifle rolls behind him.

Evrar's hand is a walkie-talkie, but her wire is dangerously stretched. The transmitter itself lies in the zone of fire. The radio operator is busy rescuing the wounded group commander - he does heart massage and mouth-to-mouth breathing. Suddenly a bullet pierces his hand. He sits down and shows Evraru wounded. Blood is flowing through the hand.

- I shout: “Throw! Keep saving the guy. Your wound will deal with later. " He looks at me, and on his face - the very slight grin that appeared every time I gave him a beating, or during hard training.
Bullets click dangerously close. The radio operator sees that the radio continues to lie under fire. "Commander, I have to pick her up!" He rushes into the sea of ​​fire, picks up the radio and returns to the foreman.

- He throws the walkie-talkie into my lap. Then she sits down in front of me as if she wants to cover me with her body. I catch his eye and ... I understand that he is mortally wounded. I will never forget the expression of his face and that very, barely noticeable grin ...

Position is deadly. The marines create a rampart, firing their ammunition in full bursts along the full store in the direction of the ridge to cover their foreman, who needs to change positions for effective command. Killed sniper. He remained at the position next to the rock, covering the departure of his comrades. Before dying, he managed to whisper: "I killed eight ... eight." Evrar got to the guy who stayed with the legion medic. At the legionary bullet broken knee. In civilian life, a senior corporal (caporal-chef) saved two people. Here he carried out from under the fire of three wounded comrades, and he died.

Two hours and five minutes after the start of the battle, with the support of American helicopters and A-10 attack aircraft, Carmin 2 begins a tactical departure. Evrar gradually makes its way to the armored personnel carriers.

20.00. It's getting dark. From Kabul comes support. A few guys manage to get out of the neighborhood. Others continue to fight one by one in the dark.
- We take care of ammunition - the battle is already eight hours. The time count has long been lost, and the constant disturbing fire of the enemy does not allow to relax.

Sergeant Roman Andrieu (23 of the year, group commander, seniority - three years).
His four armored personnel carriers with crews (a total of 8 people - the Carmin 2 vehicle) remained in positions at the village, and their 12,7 mm machine guns are aimed at the pass and provide fire support to Evrar's platoon.

“I indicated the firing sectors so that we could effectively process every ridge of the mountain.”
A sergeant looks through the binoculars on the slope leading to the pass and the surrounding mountains.

- We were perfectly visible platoon, which was moving forward along a winding path. The slide was cool. The fire began suddenly, and from the first second was monstrous. I answered immediately.

The first lines were heard from a distant pass, but the enemy immediately fired at Sergeant Andrieu's APCs.

- Bullets hit the ground and armor of armored personnel carriers. Launched from somewhere to the right, an RPG grenade flew over our heads and exploded somewhere at a safe distance. But above, around the pass, the shootout is becoming fiercer. A few more grenades are fired at us, fortunately, inaccurately again. I quickly get in touch with the foreman Evrar, and he begins to adjust the fire of my machine guns. But even with binoculars, I don’t see the Taliban. (The distance to the landing paratroopers about 600 meters.)

A group of Sergeant Andrieu is firing from all machine guns. Medium caliber covers the ridges of mountains with fire. For the Taliban, the Andrije Broniki are becoming a major problem ... and a target.

- My machine gunners are sitting in the open turret, their heads and shoulders are not protected here. Drivers lie on the ground in front of the armor. They shoot out of their Famas'ov, but there is little use for such shooting: the enemy is very far away. We could not be too long in one place, RPG grenades fell closer. Soon the Taliban in general began to conduct only targeted fire.

From our dossier

The French Marines are a self-sufficient and independent striking force of the French Armed Forces. It includes military units of various purposes. The first airborne regiment is the French counterpart of the British Special Forces SAS, the second, third and eighth airborne regiments are airborne. In Poitiers stands tank regiment. There are three artillery regiments of the marine corps. The rationality of joining the marine corps in the ground forces is that now the marines have aviation, communications, supplies and other amenities, both in the RPM and in long-distance campaigns, which are provided not with their own, but with attached units and subunits.

Now, many experts define the purpose of the Marine Corps of France, as the "rapid reaction force." The form is “land”, but on the caps, berets and black rhombuses on the sleeve there are gold anchors.

Much of the infantry units and subunits of the marines are now abroad. The shelves are in French Guiana, Martinique, New Caledonia and the islands of Polynesia. The battalions are in Gabon, Senegal, Guadalupe and Djibouti.

      Alibek, I agree with you. Somehow unconvincing. Especially 20h. Battle, this 40 km from Kabul. And where is the help and cover from the air?
      In such a heat (the author mentioned) and taking into account the rarefied high-mountain air, even lightly wounded in a matter of hours (with blood loss) turn into moderate and heavy. Initially, Stess and adrenaline at such hours gives (+) stamina. but all the same it’s somehow meticulously and clearly remembered. as if he fought in the shooting range. Probably only a small part of the truth - the rest is thin. revision.

        Absolutely right!!
        20 hours of mlin, and there, with gunshot wounds, the fighters are potentially already dead, given the fact that the doctor himself is wounded and, in principle, cannot help anyone!

          \ Almost everyone was injured. even taking into account that they injected the infusion themselves (they did not carry it with the buckets) dehydration is inevitable. And oxygen saturation, taking into account the highlands and blood loss, is problematic against the background of injury, stress, heat, etc.

          Exactly, that - 20 hours ...!?, And the fact that they have one and a half hundred rounds per person !!! "All have heavy body armor, plus each carries six magazines of twenty-five rounds." It won't be enough for a 20-hour battle !!!

    Well done boys. Even if it is a little embellished, then this does not change the essence. Courage is always worthy of respect. This is the answer to those who believe that, as expressed in the geyrope, there are no men and soldiers left and no one else knows how to fight besides the Russian army.

      In general, it’s amazing - the battle lasted 20 hours and such miserable losses what
      Indeed, statistics are confirmed that in modern combat, the average consumption of cartridges in a battle comes from the calculation of 1 store - 1 infantryman.

        It’s written 8 hours 15 minutes. Consumption of cartridges, especially in conditions when aiming shooting is impossible, is much greater. The average consumption of cartridges in Afghanistan is 250 pieces per Taliban killed.

      they were other French. which have long been petrified. now in France, the colonies are a complete HS from two shreds of territory in African Djibouti and Equatorial Guiana.

      And as for their exploits in Afghanistan, it was NATO who did not fight with henchmen, like the Soviet Army. this is when alone (without the help of allies and lackeys), at least half of the "spirits" - mercenaries from everywhere, as well as military, financial and political support from the entire "Free World". and even the work on them of the military intelligence of Pakistan and the intelligence office of the CIA. if only to listen to what the heroic European guys will sing.

      and what, by the way, is Marina Vladi? doesn't want to write a new book with burning truth about Afghanistan? well, about the atrocities of the French and other civilizers in the proud, conquered Afghanistan.

            Dear Alibek, my previous post was sent not to you, but to a prometheus, but as for the "macaques", I bet the Taliban did not fight in Russia, during the rule of the Taliban in 1996-2001, drug production was destroyed, and with the arrival of NATO, it increased 44 times and Afghan drugs have killed approximately 12 Russian youth over the past 1 years (200 per year). The Taliban and Al-Qaeda, created by the West, are, as they say in Odessa))), two big differences. And the Taliban, it seems to me, are worthy of respect that they do not give up and fight to the end with the occupiers. Respectfully Murat.

            And give me an example where the media says that Afghans fought in Chechnya, but there were Arabs, Africans, Ukrainians, there was only one American and there were others, but I don’t remember the Afghans. And what about to fight, if liberals from NATO invade our country, they will bomb, I will go to fight !!! As for the sale of the country, I hated Yeltsin since school as a 13-year-old boy in 1992, and always voted against the liberals in elections, like the whole Caucasus. !!! And now I respect the Taliban for their steadfastness, and I can only offer our country to help them with weapons, since they are now objectively our allies. As for fighting in Afghanistan for the Taliban, let’s go to fight for NATO, "or you can only talk behind the monitor," and then I will follow you for the Taliban.

              Why on earth. I don't care what's going on in Afghanistan as long as our soldiers aren't there (and I hope they won't). Although I can honestly say - let NATO members sit there longer and blizzard with the "Basmachi". The deeper they burrow in this fragile place, the calmer we are. Moreover, you can earn money on the transit of their goods (and why not, the West has always enriched itself on Russia's wars with its enemies - now it is our turn to return the historical debt).

              Do you believe the media? During the first Chechen war, Shah Massoud (can you remember this?), Giving an interview, said that he reliably knows that among the Wahhabis in the Caucasus there are fighters from the Taliban. Then he noted that this infection (referring to fundamentalism) quickly takes root and will root itself out for a long time, and Russia will have a long and stubborn struggle (as a whole, it looked into the water).
              You respect the Taliban, of course, everyone’s personal sympathies are up to you - but for them, there is no concept of Homeland as you wrote above. Their entire worldview system is built on destruction. I personally do not like the savages who publicly hang on cranes those who refuse to wear beards and scoff at women, cutting off their ears and noses or beating them alive with stones.

    beautiful fairy tale for children! In fact, it was all a friend: after this failure, many heads of the French authorities flew ... But it was so ... From the very beginning, the operation did not include the ascent to the pass. The paratroopers should have been downstairs next to Brati. They were in reserve for emergency situations. You should also look at the operation plan, on the operation plan the pass is in the red zone, and the red zone indicates the territory that the Taliban control and without artillery and air support. no one ever climbs this zone. The zones in which the operation was planned to be carried out are the green (safe) and yellow (risky) zones. In these areas, air reconnaissance was carried out in advance by Bell OH-58 Kiowa reconnaissance helicopters and drones. As in red nothing was planned in the zone, then there was no reconnaissance there. Everything is simple and logical! But as in every army there are commanders of rvachi and careerists who want to make a quick career, it was accepted by the platoon command to rise to the pass for the show-off, where the platoon and was ambushed. Since this was not part of the plan of operation, the artillery could not support their fire, since the range of mortars 120 mm 6 kilometers and they they didn’t reach the red zone. And they could not relocate because it threatened other participants in the operation. Therefore, the American Air Force and the operational reserve of the French artillery depot were called up, which could only support their own after a few hours. Total 10 dead, not 9! one died in a traffic accident, an armored personnel carrier was in such a hurry that it turned over and one crew member died, wounded 24, not 17! At 8 of those killed, the throats were cut from them, the Taliban removed all their equipment, took away their weapons. They managed to pick up the bodies only the day after the ambush, when everything was quiet. After this incident, many heads of authorities flew! Sarkozy himself and the Minister of Defense flew to the base in Afghanistan to investigate. And the article is beautiful and the translation too ... Just keep in mind that they also know how to write beautiful heroic novels in the right context for the public! By the way, I’m inserting a photo of a blown up Btra who was blown up later in another operation ... Fortunately there were no dead or wounded ...

    IMHO the French were saved only by the fact that the spirits were downright shepherds and themselves pissed off these marines. A French sniper writes that he hit the target when setting up a 400m sight. I shot up, so the distance was somewhere around 350-370m. Why the hell did the spirits open fire from such a distance? And besides, they probably did not immediately shoot from top to bottom. There are only 22 Marines. 50 Spirits. There is nothing and no one in the air. Make a "horseshoe" of 50 people and disguise 10 minutes of work. Divide the sectors between the left and right flanks of the horseshoe in advance. Lower the head of the column to 50-70m and open fire simultaneously along the entire column. 2 spirits per marine. After a couple of minutes, only the one who falls to the minuscule with 2 aces without "hostesses" and wins could survive.

    Yes, a strange tale is illogical. Spirits after almost 40 years of guerrilla warfare were not able to correctly organize an ambush. Possessing all the advantages (dominant heights, superior forces, time) it is quite logical to organize a fiery mine ambush. Place 4-6 MON (50; 90) along the trail, at the worst, HE shells of 152 mm shells, then detonation, shelling foolishly rushing Frenchmen retreat. And according to the description of 10 cahanas with berdanks, hash was smoked and decided to punish infidels.

      Roman, I also think that there were 10-15 Taliban, no more, and inexperienced probably.

    The Honest Jew and Roman Vasilenko explained much more logically and simply. Most likely, it was. And French fiction is more for internal use, to maintain the image of the army. The story is rather unconvincing.

    First, two F-15 attack aircraft arrive. Ten minutes later, the armored American A-10 Thunderbolt attack aircraft begin to circle the battlefield. They are specially designed to support ground troops, they have low speed and high accuracy of weapon systems, but ... the marines and the enemy are separated by a few meters, and the pilots are forced to return.(platoon commander 2)
    Man is courageous, but! F-15 is not an attack aircraft, as far as I know. Secondly, the vaunted A-10 could not work out on call for a disguised target. (distance 350-400м between opponents) Are they so good, as the amers write about? On the question of the professionalism of the Marines: why they, having called aviation, did not designate their cutting edge, and so on. I still prefer the honest Honest Jewish post rather than the story of A. Dumas' descendants. IMHO.

    Well, I read it. Column of twenty cars, how many people were there? We courageously watched as 22 Frenchmen courageously earned the Order of the Legion of Honor posthumously, and courageously summoned air support. And it is not destiny to go to the rescue, in contact, apparently, the mentality does not allow, what? Wonderful are your works, Lord. Or is it a fairy tale? So the site is not the same, it seems, and the author's name is not a fig, not Boyan.

    And for our guys in Afghanistan there were no red zones.))))))) There were red zones at the spirits, well, very red. And ours went where they wanted and drilled as they wanted. And imagine for at least 1 second. that Russia secretly helps the Taliban with weapons and money ??? grave mounds throughout America and Europe.

    Conclusion:
    Communication should be continuous. To all, stable, and two walkie-talkies per group for communication with higher ones.
    BTR turrets must be armored, all regular means must be armored.
    Air support was again ineffective due to the distance between the fighters and the Taliban. On the SU-25 installation of SPU like, in a movable container under the pylons of the wings. The aiming can be done using the video screen in the cockpit. The highlight of the target is important for her.
    When leaving the battlefield, the Taliban had to be cut off with mortar fire.
    I didn’t finish reading, but a pinwheel would help more efficiently due to better conditions for adjusting the fire and a shorter contact distance.
