OMLT 033C and 033D in Contact

January 2011

Whilst O33C are in contact in the village of Tutak, Tangi Valley, with O33D providing support from an overwatch position an insurgent spotter was taken off a Cliffside by a well-placed 155mm artillery by the US Army.

The second shelling of that cliff-side wasn't as well placed and landed within very close proximity to 033C.
