Mikhail lifts the record player over his head and with a voice that first booms, then cracks like a tree failing in the woods the massive youth lets out a shout of "Za Rodina Tovarishi." He will then bring the weapon to his shoulder and scan the banks, letting others go before him on to the makeshift jetty.

Scarcely had the boat scraped up against the pier before Alexi had leaped over the side, amongst the first off. Finally... now give me some fascists to kill.

Killing would require getting closer, his weapon not being the most accurate in the world, so he began to work his way up the jetty cautiously. Unlike the reckless fools ahead of him, he was canny enough to know that snipers and machineguns would massacre anyone stupid enough to be moving out in the open in an urban area. Oh sure, he could hope that the front line was further away than the river, but Alexi was a firm believer in hoping for the best and preparing for the worst. So he moved at a half crouch, taking advantage of every crate, pile of materials, and other assorted cover as he moved forward. Maybe it wasn't the most heroic way to fight, but heroes in the Red Army were almost always preceded by the word "dead", and a dead man couldn't kill his enemy.

As the ferry scrapes against the docks the soldiers stumble off glad to have survived the arduous crossing. The landing bay is extremely small littered with rubble from the surrounding buildings. The warehouses and townhouses all around have all suffered severe bomb damage, their empty windows staring blackly over the landing. Several of the 42nd guardsmen help secure the zone, the crack of rifles and the stuttering roar of machine guns can be heard several streets away. Commissar Marikhov strides to one of the 42nd soldiers, “Where is the rest of the regiment!” he demands.

“To the west,” he man stammers back, “the fascists are pushing to take the river landings and factories!”

“Is the Andranov Factory still ours?”

“No, we lost contact with those there, we could not move to support them,” the man trembles as Marikhov stares him down, “Captain Sergei is dead we decided to defend to landing so you could come.”

Marikhov frowns and turns to face the disembarking soldiers, “SERGEANT REPORT TO ME FOR ORDERS!” he shouts attempting to locate the sergeant.

Having gladly left the boat, Dolokhov moves cautiously, trying to stay at the unit's rear. Once hears the senior Commissar's shouts, however, he moves in a bit closer to him so that he can hear the orders too. The rifle lies readied and loaded in his hand, and he eyes the squad for any signs of cowardice or abnormal behaviour as much as the "keep head low" mantra allows him. Though the entire situation is quite abnormal for him.

Ovitchken is nearby, his hand stiff on his pistol as he presses through the crowd of soldiers to the front of the pack. "Sergeant Ovitchken reporting, sir!"

“Sergeant the situation is calls for swift action, take the soldiers here and head to the factory,” He points down the riverside road. “Continue down until you reach the sign for the Andranov factory then follow the road, defend the factory, if the fascists hold it take it back, and if the situation is hopeless render the factory useless so it can’t be used against us. If the workers are still alive ensure they keep working, the factory turns out T-34’s and if they can churn one out during the battle it will deter the enemy from attacking for some time.” He salutes, “You have your orders, dismissed!” He turns and strides down the street to take command of the 42nd guards elsewhere.

Having recieved his orders, Ovitchken goes immidiately to work.

Assembling his men around him at the mouth of the road, Commissar Scar calls out, getting everyone's attention. "Men of the 42nd rifle guards! Assemble on me! Double time, let's go!"

Waiting only a short time for his men to gather, Ovitchken immidiately begins to pace back and forth across the length of the road, half inspecting his men, half trying to spot any enemy machine gun emplacements or possible ambush points along the way. It didn't look like the facists had control over this sector yet. "Down this road is the Andranov factory. This cannot be allowed to fall into the enemy's hands. Proceed up this road and redezvous at the factory, stay low and do not walk in the middle of the road. Stick to the gutters on either side - if we get strafed by a Stuka, it will be best to get as low to the ground as possible. Those of you without weapons, remain behind those who are armed, and be prepared to do your duty. Take the enemy's weapons from thier dead grasp if you must!" Without saying much more he blows his whistle, signaling his men to advance.

If there are no disturbances along the way, Ovitchken will begin to assemble his men into defensive positions. He sends word for Dolokhov to report to him, and as the young officer approaches, the Sergeant doesn't look up from the maps splashed across one the factory foreman's desk. "Commissar - assemble your best riflemen... and get that lad with the machine gun, what was his name? You are responsible for setting up our last line of defense here on this floor of the factory. If the facists are able to beat us back this far, there will be no retreat for any of us."

He slides a requisitioned explosive charge carefully wrapped in burlap across the desk at Dolokhov. "Take this to the basement boilers. Have the company engineer run a demolition wire to the top floor, so we can detonate the factory should we be overrun." Impatiently the Sergeant looks up from his maps with a frown, "You're still standing here!? Go - the facists are not going to wait, comrade!"

Viktor turns his attention back to his maps, trying to determine what direction the Germans are coming from, estimate the size of their attack force, and find a good place to hold them off in the area surrounding the factory.

The moment the whistle blew, Alexi was on the move towards the factory. Now this is more like it. Let the riflemen tink away at tiny dots they can barely see. I want to watch the bastards bleed when I send a bullet through their fascist little hearts. He was relieved that their sergeant seemed to know his head from his ass and wasn't an incompetent basran who had gotten his rank purely through party connections and being able to scream really loud. Still, even with simple directions some people were hopeless, and Alexi hissed at one particularly dense individual moving down the street like he was strolling through the park with his girlfriend.

"Get under cover, you idiot! You may as well be holding a flag while you're out there, it'd just make it even easier for the fascist snipers to spot you!" The man gaped at him for a second with his mouth half open, reminding Alexi nothing so much as of a fish's stare, when the two brain cells in his head clicked and he scurried over to the side with the rest of the soldiers. Alexi shook his head in reproof.

I can handle the Germans, it's idiots like that that will get me killed.

Having received her orders, Ekaterina wasted no time in advancing towards the factory, keeping low and seeking cover whenever possible. She felt tingly with adrenaline, her skin flushed despite the cold. As the company reached the factory, she spent a few moments taking in the building and its surroundings, seeking the best defensive spots and probable enemy sniper spots. Climbing to the upper floors and finding a reasonably protected area with a good view, the girl crouched with her rifle held tight, using its scope to survey the terrain and buildings around the factory.

Dolokhov grunts having received orders, and just after a moment of loitering begins moving behind their lines, to assemble the men. As soon as he spots the machinegunner Seminov, he calls out to him: "Hey, you! Comrade Machinegun! Come here!" He repeats the procedure with a dozen other troopers, until a reasonably-sized squad is formed. Dolokhov leads them to the designated spot and debriefs them quickly. "Comrades, you have been selected for a crucial task. You shall form our final line of defence in the factory. As the sergeant said, no retreat! I shall be overseeing your conduct... personally." Dolokhov takes care to pierce every single man with his gaze as he speaks these words, as if to give every individual the message, in case of a screwup, you'll be first.

Dolokhov then proceeds to find good cover for himself, smoke a cigarette, oversee the squad's setting up, and send a rank-and-file soldier to find the company engineer.

Upon being told to fallout Mikhail is relieved that there's to be some action, he had heard of men being forced to stand and look into the bleak darkness for hours on end with the fascists out there watching, waiting for their moment; at least this way he would get to do something. Following the comrade sergeants orders to keep in cover and present a smaller target he makes a pitifully bad job of it, his large frame meaning all he can do is stoop his shoulders a little bit and duck his head. He clapped a hand on the shoulder of the soldier who gets a tongue lashing from the ratlike man with a peashooter whispering in his ear with a friendly tone "You gotta use ya head comrade or someone'll make sure you can't use it ever again,"


Once he's pulled aside and told he'll be the final line of defence he'll be both proud and a little bit scared that should he have to fight many of his comrades would be dead or dying. Pushing that thought to the back of his mind he fires off a quick salute "Not a single fascist shall pass my breathing body sir."

He will then look for some form of cover he can use to support his record player and provide some protection from those coming through the door, using his strength to move something into place if he has to.
