Petrovsky, gravely injured.

Sergeant Kinsella and 3-1 Bravo are engaged in an intense firefight in a village in Panjwai District. 3-1 Charlie is pinned down, and Pat, Chucky, Dean and Jakes move in to attempt an extraction. 3-1 Charlie's section commander takes a bullet that pierces his Kevlar vest: it's an armour piercing round, a deadly new addition to the Taliban arsenal. A journalist, Claire Adams, arrives at KAF, doing an investigative piece on how these high-power weapons are finding their way into Taliban hands. 3-1 Bravo is ordered to act as security detail as Adams meets with a warlord for information on the new arms. It all goes wrong, and Claire is abducted.
