800th Air Intelligence Regiment:

The 800th Air Intelligence Regiment would at Kubinka air base ready the 2nd Recon Squadron and 3rd Recon Squadron. The 2nd Recon Squadron would fuel up three MiG-25RB. Not loading them with any bomb loads or munitions, but instead equiping them with film for their powerful reconnaissance cameras. Each of the three would receive max fuel loads. Ground crew would also perform light maintenance on the aircraft and do pre flight checks. They would however be equipped wit SM-1 systems and SPS-141MVG ECM Jammer pods.

The 3rd Recon Squadron would fuel up three Ilyushin IL-20 (Coot-A) aircraft to max fuel. Some minor maintenance would be performed and pre flight checks would also be performed.

The twenty three pilots for the six aircraft would be briefed on their mission objectives and then sent off to gear up. This would in all take around ten minutes in total.

Once crewed with twenty Pilots each the three Ilyushin IL-20 (Coot-A) would take off and ascend to 30,000 ft at 333 mph one at a time and safely. However once at altitude they would each descend to 25,000 ft and slow to a speed of 260 mph. From there they would split up.

The first Ilyushin IL-20 (Coot-A) would go to the border of the Vitebsk Region. The second would go to the Mogilev Region border. The third would go to the Gomel Region border. All three aircraft would stay a mile within Russian territory and avoid crossing over. They would travel from the south to the north of each border. Once at the start of the border the aircraft would switch on their ELINT [Kvadrat-2], SLAR [Igla-1], SRS-5 Vishnya, Weather Radar, and SRS-7 Romb-4B. The SLAR could see 72 KM of the Belorussian land wile being one mile out due to it's 74.1 KM range. The COMIT and ELINT systems having a range of 926 KM.

Using COMIT to listen on communications and ELINT to detect signals like Radar they would use this and their side peaking radar to determine the locations of Belarusian military installations and military formation locations.

The three MiG-25RBs after being crewed would take off safely at a time and ascend to 78,740 ft. From there each of the three split up in different directions. The first heading to Vitebsk Region, the second to Mogilev Region, and the third to Gomel Region. However they would not stop at the border. Instead they would initiate afterburn and enter Belarusian airspace at Mach 2.83 with their ECM systems on. One would take photos of Gomel Airport, another would take photos of Vitebsk Vostochny Airport, and the last one would take photos of Mahilyow Airport. All of this being before turning around back towards their own airspace. However if they did not get a serious response the plan was to go deeper.

This is of course if everything goes to plan.

332nd Airborne early warning and control Regiment:

1st Recon Squadron of the 332nd Airborne early warning and control Regiment would fuel and crew two Beriev A-50. Ground crew performing checks while the crews were briefed on their mission. Once the aircraft were all ready the aircraft would be given 15 crew each and then taxi to the runway one at a time. From there they would take off and ascend to an altitude of 30,000 ft at a cruise speed of 497 mph. One would go and loiter over Velikiye Luki while the other went and loitered over Bryansk.

Their objective being to observe the air traffic in Belarus and to spot their reaction to the three MiG-25 that would be breaching their airspace. Each could track 200 aircraft at a time so they would get good data from this.

2nd Separate Special Purpose Brigade:

The 70th Special Purpose Detachment would deploy a company of Spetsnaz and so would the 329th Special Purpose Detachment. Each being 250 men in a company for this mission. With them they would take 22 GAZ-3934 "Siam", 1 Ural-4320, and 1 Fara-VR Ground Surveillance Radar each. Each Ural-4320 would get a single driver and have the Fara-VR loaded into it. It was also loaded with a pallet loaded with 586 Russian Army Rations and a pallet carrying 263 gallons of water. They all wore VSR 93 Uniforms with Sphera helmets, 6B5-15 Vest (with inserts), and meshok packs. Each was given a breakfast ration, lunch ration, and dinner ration. Ten each would load into a GAZ-3934 "Siam" and of those ten four were equipped with AK-74M assault rifles with ten thirty round magazines. One was given a Dragunov SVD with five ten round magazines and a Makarov pistol with two 8 round magazines. One was given a PK machine gun with two 100 round boxes. One was given a OTs-14 Groza with 10 thirty round magazines and a RPO-A Shmel. One was given a OTs-14 Groza with 10 thirty round magazines. Two were given AK-74M assault rifles with 10 thirty round magazines and a GP-34 grenade launcher with two frag grenades and two tear gas grenades. They also all had shooting earmuffs/earplugs and two canteens of water.

The company from 70th Special Purpose Detachment would mount up in their Siams and Ural before driving to Kiseli in Smolensk Oblast via road. 329th Special Purpose Detachment would go to Tsegel'nya in Smolensk Oblast. In those spots they would dismount and begin preparations fore a hike to the border, but not go just yet. They would take this time at first to refuel and top off. They would do this using fuel they brought along with the rest of the payload capacity of their Urals.

Airplanes would be traveling within the grid coordinates of KO to KO

Since the ultimate demise of the URSS few years back tensions with the west had deescalated, while a new struggle for international positioning began. Internally President Lukashenko rapidly seized power and secured his position, meaning that the soviets would retain certain amount of influence in the country and there the risk of a western aggression would still remain latent. Belarusian military structure had always been oriented westwards for that reason.

------------------

Another boring day at work for Lt. Klishkov and his team in the outskirts of Minsk. Today's highlight was the triple-pointer Comrade Vladinovich scored with the small paperball from the other corner of the container where the 36D6 surveillance radar of the S-300P battery was mounted. After lunch, while he was falling asleep, he saw a new light blink with the corner of his eye, a light he had not seen recently. Returning from his daydreaming he put his headphones on and move some small levers and pushed few buttons.

The soviet made radar had a reach of 360km with a detection ceiling of 65,000ft. What at first was one light, few seconds later became 3. The belarusian radar operator was effectively able to detect and track 3 apparently russian aircraft flying along the border, but remaining clear on russian airspace. He would track them during their complete flight along the border, on the Vitebsk, Mogilev and Gomel regions, until they eventually retreated back out of radar range.

The incident, while minor, was reported to the superiority and tagged as a russian aeriall deployment along the border. While suspicious it was only deemed a routine training and possible testing of equipment.

On political circles there was no reason to be alarmed, Russia had always been friendly to wards Lukashenko's regime.

-----------------

The three MiG-25RBs remained undetected due to flying above the detection ceiling of the only currently active air surveillance radar. The 2 Beriev A-50, although within the detection ceiling, would be slightly beyond the reach of the radar, and therefore remain undetected as well.

The thres MiG-25RBs would thanks to no interference from the Belorussians take photos of their intended targets. High quality photos of Gomel Airport Vitebsk Vostochny Airport, and Mahilyow Airport. Due to using after burner they would not stay for long and initiate a long and date turn. They had successfully evaded Belarusian detection thanks to going at such a high altitude. The pilots having not noticed any radar locks during their time in Belarussian airspace. They would throttle down to Mach 2.35 which was their cruise speed and then once in Russian airspace throttle down to sub sonic cruise speed. From there they would return to Kubinka air base where they would slow down and descend before safely landing and taxiing one at a time to parking spots. Where upon ground crew would come and remove the film so it could be processed and developed.

The three Ilyushin IL-20 (Coot-A) would be able to figure out they had been spotted thanks to their onboard sensors and equipment, however they noted a lack of response both to them and the MiG-25s that had breached their airspace. It seemed they hadn't even spotted those jets. This could be confirmed by the Russian A-50s that did not spot any interceptors go up in the air. Aside from that they would be able to gather intel on the locations of Belarusian Military Units and facility thanks to their sensitive sensor arrays. COMIT, ELINT, and SLAR would tell them the locations of Minsk (HQ), Western Operational Command, North Western Operational Command, Transport Troops, and their in use air bases while the Russian A-50s would be able to spot the Belarusian A-50s in the air.

With all this information the Russian aircraft would peel off and head back to base. Both the Ilyushin IL-20 (Coot-A)s and A-50s would return to their respective air bases. Those airbases being Kubinka air base and Smolensk North Airport. Once there they would safely land one at a time and then taxi into a parking spot.

Airplanes would be traveling within the grid coordinates of KO to KO

The units from the 2nd Separate Special Purpose Brigade would arrive and make camp for the night. They would set up and start discussing the mission ahead. Theoretically the airforce would have been successful in their mission and by tommarow they would receive information to confirm on the ground. So for now they would camp here and eat their dinner rations and set up tents. The idea was that they would do field reconnaissance to confirm information the airforce had gathered.

With no new anomalities detected, the belarussian armed forces and Government would continue their routine practices and drills. Positioning of their units would remain, as before, oriented westwards.

On the russian-belarusian border only border troops would remain, guarding all checkpoints and patrolling the surrouding areas as usual.

No belarusian aircraft would currently be airborne, but surveillance radars would remain vigilant.

The russian troops camping near the border would remain undetected due to the harsh forrest terrain and no patrols in the vecinity.

It would take time for the photos of Gomel Airport, Vitebsk Vostochny Airport, and Mahilyow Airport to be developed. However suffice to say that they had no military assets on them. This would come in handy in their own way once this was determined. In the meantime planners pulled up old Soviet Documents to confirm old base locations. Those were the next most likely positions to have air force assets. Those would be what they would check next.

On the list of intel gathering targets were Machulishchy air base, Lida air base, Baranovichi air base, Pruzhany air base, and Bereza air base. It was entirely possible that the Belorussians had ceased to use them in the five years since the Soviet Union Collapsed, but it was unlikely. However, they needed up to date detailed information.

The 800th Air Intelligence Regiment 2nd Recon Squadron was called upon once more. After the first three aircraft had their engines and equipment maintenanced by ground crew, and the pilots were switched out they were given a briefing. Five MiG-25RB would investigate Machulishchy air base, Lida air base, Baranovichi air base, Pruzhany air base, and Bereza air base. Their instructions were clear. Fly at an altitude of 78,740 ft while going at their cruise speed with partial afterburn at Mach 2.35. To save on weight this time they would forgo SM-1 systems and SPS-141MVG ECM Jammer pods.

With that the five pilots would be ordered to scrambled and get geared up. At the same time five MiG-25RB would be wheeled out into parking spots. The three from before would have their ECM systems removed for weight purposes. All five of them would be given max fuel loads and have all systems checked. Film would be restocked and they would be readied up.

After the pilots had suited up they would scramble and embark on their assigned MiG-25RB. One at a time they would taxi out, and then take off ascending to an altitude of 30,000 ft at first. After they had all taken off circling the airport they would be in a wedge formation with a mile between each aircraft. With that, they split up heading in their own directions while all climbing at a casual angle to the desired altitude at the desired speed. While in supersonic cruise speed they had a range of 1015 miles.

The first aircraft would enter Belarusian airspace at 78,740 ft while going Mach 2.35. They kept a close eye on their instruments making slight adjustments as they all did. The first one was going to Minsk - Machulishchy air base where they would take photos of it. The second aircraft also going at the same speed and altitude was going to Lida air base to take photos. The third aircraft going the same speed and altitude was going to Baranovichi air base to take photos. The fourth aircraft was going to Pruzhany air base at the same speed and altitude. The fifth and last aircraft was doing the same speed and altitude and going to Bereza air base.

1st Recon Squadron of the 332nd Airborne early warning and control Regiment would fuel and crew two Beriev A-50. Ground crew performing checks while the crews were briefed on their mission. Once the aircraft were all ready the aircraft would be given 15 crew each and then taxi to the runway one at a time. From there they would take off and ascend to an altitude of 30,000 ft at a cruise speed of 497 mph. One would go and loiter over Velikiye Luki while the other went and loitered over Bryansk. Both watched the Belarusian airspace for any new activity.

At the same time a fully crewed and fueled Ilyushin IL-20 (Coot-A) of the 800th Air Intelligence Regiment would be deployed and take off to a altitude of 25,000 ft and a speed of 260 mph. From there they would follow along the Belarusian border with sensors turned on. Both COMIT and ELINT were active and they looked for activity.

---


Company A of the 70th Special Purpose Detachment at Kiseli in Smolensk Oblast would embark 33 Spetsnaz into three GAZ-3934 "Siam". Then from there they would go off road towards Vitebsk Vostochnyy. They would go in a convoy with about four car lengths between each of them. Every time they would come to a road they would deploy three spotters to make sure no cars were comming. Once they were certain the convoy would cross the road. They would do their best to remain in the cover of trees. However depending on thhe density of the forest they might turn around. If anyone approached or spotted them they would have their cover story be that they are from the Belarusian 5th Spetsnaz Bde and are undergoing a training exercise as Opfor.


329th Special Purpose Detachment Company A at Tsegel'nya in Smolensk Oblast would do much the same deploying 33 men in three GAZ-3934 "Siam". They would however start making their way towards Mahilyow Airport while traveling offroad. They too would be cautious when crossing roads or moving through the open. They would have more obstacles in their way such as cities and towns which they would have to give a wide birth to avoid unwanted attention.

In both cases the plan was to disembark from five miles out and then to approach on foot and observe from a distance. They were taking with them not just their weapons and other standard equipment, but in the two groups one of the three vehicles had a Fara-VR Ground Surveillance Radar.

Although not capable of detecting the very high flying russian MiG-25RB, the now bolder move of entering deep within belarusian airspace would expose them by provoking sonicbooms. The civilian population was used to those loud bangs and assumed they were provoked by their own Air Force. However, air force personnel stationed near Minsk would be alerted and after quick consultations it would be clear that no belarussian supersonic capable aircraft was currently in the air.

Immediatly orders would be sent to the 61st Fighter Squadron stationed at Machulishchy Air Base to investigate the incident. Since no target had been detected it would be assumed that the invasor was or were flying (there was no confirmation of the exact number) above detection range, meaning something over 65,000ft.

2x MiG-29 would be launched, fully fueled and with all systems operative, bearing 2x R-27ET and 4x R-73 each. As soon as they where over 10,000ft they would begin roaming around the capital and use their onboard radars to try detect the unidentified invasors. Initial guesses of being it a western incurson were soon discarded given the trajectory made by the reports of sonic booms clearly indicated that they were coming from the east... from Russia.

They would quickly detect the MiG-25 surveying the Machulishchy Air Base, fact that would be immediatly reported to their HQ over encrypted radio. Both MiG-29s would continue to climb, allowing to increase their speeds to try to catch up to the quick invasor.

One of the MiG-29 would take a direct interception vector, while the second one would detach and head eastwards in order to cut off a potential retreat, trying to quickly level the altitude and speed of the MiG-25 being intercepted by his wingman.

This one would turn on his radio and over open frequency establish contact with the invasor.

"Unidentified aircraft, you have entered airspace of the Republic of Belarus. Indentify and you are ordered to reduce your speed to 450kn and descend to flight level 220. You are being intercepted."

"Unidentified aircraft, you have entered airspace of the Republic of Belarus. Indentify and you are ordered to reduce your speed to 450kn and descend to flight level 220. You are being intercepted."

"Unidentified aircraft, you have entered airspace of the Republic of Belarus. Indentify and you are ordered to reduce your speed to 450kn and descend to flight level 220. You are being intercepted."

In the meantime, the intercepting aircraft would try to get a lock, for precaution.

The MiG-25RB pilot looked over his shoulder and down having gotten readings he had been detected and been told so by the A-50s. It was dangerous for these MiG-29s to be flying so high, and he knew it. He couldn't tell from this angle but it was clear they were probably carrying weapons. If he gunned it from here he could put himself more towards 100,000 ft at the risk of forcing him to land somewhere like Poland. There was at least 6000 ft of difference between them.

The reason why there was still a difference in altitude despite the efforts of the MiG-29 pilots was because the max altitude of the MiG-29 was 75,459 ft for a stratosphere flight. Not only that, but at this altitude or any altitude they would be unable to match his speed as he was going Mach 2.35 while the top speed of a MiG-29 was Mach 2.25.

"Republic of Belarus Aircraft. This is Russian Federation MiG-25. I am unarmed. Cannot reduce speed at this altitude immediately without risking a stall."

"Repeat. Cannot reduce speed at this altitude immediately. Will stall."

"Requesting escort to Polish border once altitude has been reached."

Indeed from down there they could no doubt see the MiG-25 was unarmed.

Due to the speeds, altitude, and time to intercept involved and with permission from the Polish the MiG-29s whom were still not able to match speed nor altitude would suddenly find themselves at the Polish border. The MiG-25 was descending however, and reducing speed.... gradually.

They kept a heading for the Polish border which they were practically ontop of now. As they had not been given directions to turn around. Merely to descend and reduce speed. Which they were complying with.

1st Recon Squadron of the 332nd Airborne early warning and control Regiment would recall their two A-50 in the air which would return to their airport. The same for the Coot-A would occur after having gathered some data, specifically on Belarusian response times. Each aircraft would land safely one at a time before they would taxi to their parking spot.

Company A of the 70th Special Purpose Detachment Would arrive outside of Vitebsk Vostochnyy. Specifically in the forest to the east using it as cover as they dismounted and got into formation. Moving close to the ground they would come to the edge of the forest where they would with 12 ft apart from one another begin making observations. Setting up their Fara-VR which they used to begin scanning the airport.

Meanwhile the 329th Special Purpose Detachment Company A would arrive outside of Mahilyow Airport and dismounting in the patch of trees to the east. From there in patrol formation they lugged their radar to the fields outside of the airport where they kept low and set things up. At which point they began to scan the airport from a distance.

Supply depots would be established at Novozybkov, Sarazh, Zaytsev, and Vorga.

All movement would happen via listed vehicle in structuring. Vehicles would periodically top off and resupply as to avoid becoming stranded on the road. Unit movement was up to the Lieutenant Colonel level of command but would stick to the roads until they reached their off point. All of this would happen without announcement and news on the matter would be suppressed.

Dęblin, Lublin Voivodeship, Poland

The Radar stations set in Deblin Air Base had detected the Russian MiG-25 and the two Belarussian Mig-29s while they were still inside of Belarussian airspace. The NUR-41 Radar Altimeter combined with the NUR-31 Radar let Poland peak inside the Belarussian border. Upon confirming with higher ups, the air traffic controller working from the airbase sent a message to the Belarussian MiGs.

"Attention Aircraft arriving from Belarus. You are approaching Polish Air Space and an active training mission of the Polish Land Forces. Please desist from your pursuit unidentified aircraft and do not enter Polish Air Space."

"I Repeat. Aircraft arriving from Belarus. You are approaching Polish air space and an active training mission of the Polish Land Forces. Please desist from your pursuit of the unidentified aircraft and do not enter Polish Air Space."

While the air traffic controller was attempted to dissuade the pursuit for the Belarussian fighters, another air traffic controller was attempted to establish communication with the Russian MiG.

"Attention lead aircraft. This is Deblin Air Base. Please descend to flight level 180 and proceed to 51°33'32.83" N 21°50'53.84" E. Deblin Air Base. Runway has been cleared. Deblin out."

Beside the incursion of the russian MiGs, the Government of Belarus had no other indicator of any russian build up. And considering that the bulk of their troops were stationed westwards, the lower miitary presence in the border with Russia would make it impossible for them to notice any russian activity out of the ordinary there. It was more probable for some movement to be detected by local farmers in the area.

However, Lukashenkos Government did actually contact Moscow on the issue of the traspassing aircraft.

The Belarussian Minister of Defense would make a private call to his russian counterpart on an encrypted line.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

18th Mechanized Division
Terespol HQ
Once the Terespol Field Base was established, commanders were called to the command tent to inform them of a 'new' set of orders that had arrived through the chain of command. Once those orders were established, the other commanders set about issuing orders to the subordinates. One of those orders was for a battalion of the 21st Podhale Rifles to stand to.

As night rolled onto the camp, four hundred(400) infantrymen of the 21st Podhale Rifles Regiment would begin to gear up. Wearing their field uniform wz .93 in the Pantera camouflage pattern, their OLV Splinter vest in Pantera pattern with a front steel plate insert, and a Helm wz. 2000. Each carried two one day ration kits and two canteens.

The three hundred men of the 3rd Battalion would split into twenty-five squads of twelve soldiers each.
25 would be issued a Dragonuv SVD with six, five round magazines with FMJ ammunition, 1 WIST-94 Pistol with three sixteen round magazines, a night optic, a day optic, a battlefield dressing
25 would be issued UKM-2000P GPMG with 2 one hundred round boxes, a battlefield dressing, 1 RGZ-89 Fragmentation Grenade, 1 UGD-200 Smoke Grenade(White)
25 would be issued a FB Beryl, 5 thirty round magazines loaded with FMJ, a RPG-7D with a bandoleer holding 3 PG-7VL and 3 PG-7VR Rockets, a battlefield dressing
25 would be issued a FB Beryl, 5 thirty round magazines loaded FMJ, RADMOR 3501 Radio, 2 UGD-200 Smoke grenades(1 white, 1 red), a battlefield dressing
200 would be issued a FB Beryl, 5 thirty round magazines loaded with FMJ, 2 RGZ-89 Fragmentation Grenade, a battlefield dressing

Once the Battalion was mustered, they would split between forty Tarpan Honkers, each squad would be split between two Honkers. Five squads code named Lion would go to the coordinates 52°5'33°N, 23°36'56°E to begin scouting the area. Five squads code named Tiger would go to the coordinates 52°5'16°N, 23°37'31°E to begin scouting the area. Five squads code named Wolverine would go to coordinates 52°4'39°N, 23°38'19°E to begin scouting the area. Five Squads code named Mongoose would go to coordinates 52°4'23°N, 23°38'54°E to begin scouting the area. Five squads code named Badger would go to coordinates 52°3'35°N, 23°39'15°E to begin scouting the area. They would be looking for the best place for armed forces to cross in a hurry should they need to.

The rest of the 18th Mechanized Division would go over final battle preparedness with the new recruits who had just arrived from basic training, as well as vehicle maintenance. They would inspect everything on the vehicle that could quickly be put back on the vehicle in order to move fast into Belarus. Members of the 4th Anti-Aircraft Regiment and the 15th Air Defense Regiment would stand guard throughout the day and night armed with GROM anti-aircraft missiles should the need arrive.

The 11th Armored Cavalry Division began to load their tanks with live ammunition and and live shells. Each tank would be loaded with forty rounds for the 125mm main gun, two thousand rounds for the GPMG coaxial gun, and 250 rounds for the .50 heavy machine gun. Erawa-2 ERA would be bolted onto the tanks to increase effectiveness. The diesel tanks would be topped off and Star 266 trucks would be outfitted to carry enough fuel for the Twardy's in case of an emergency fuel stop was required. The grenade launchers were loaded with white smoke grenades.

41st Training Air Base, stationed in a mock air base in Terespol, would begin activating the NUR-22, NUR-31, and NUR-41 radars. A platoon would be dispatched from the 17th Mechanized Infantry brigade to the Biala Podlaska airport to handle any aircraft that came from Belarussian airspace declaring an emergency. All other traffic normally flying through the airport would be diverted to other airports. They would process information of flights within their range inside of Belarus, being able to reach 360km with the NUR-41, 160km with the NUR-31, and 100km with the NUR-22. Any flight that would approach within 2km of the border would be advised that a Polish Military Exercise would be occurring nearby and to avoid approaching the border any further. Upon arriving at 1km from the border, anti-aircraft missiles would be deployed from the 4th Anti-Aircraft Regiment and the 15th Air Defense Regiment. Upon crossing the border and visual is confirmed, the target will be locked on and a final warning would be issued from air traffic controllers to return to Belarussian air space. If pilot admits to a mechanical issue that requires entering Polish Air Space they would be advised to land at the Biala Podlaska Airport.

The Russian MiG-25 would comply with the orders from the Polish after having entered Polish airspace. Reducing speed and altitude to comply. With the Belarusian MiG's disappearing behind them it would go to the 1°33'32.83" N 21°50'53.84" E. Deblin Air Base where it would slowly and safely descend before landing on the helpfully cleared landing strip. From there the aircraft would taxi to a parking spot where the Pilot would pop open the cockpit.

The Russian MOD (Ministry of Defence) would pick up the phone though currently the Minister was in another call. The MOD would apologize for the intrusion and state that it had been a simple mistake. That they are working on getting the aircraft back after the incident and were working on trying to figure out how a routine flight had gone like this. The Russian MOD would assure that such an overflight would not happen again.

The belarusian Minister of Defence would accept the apologies, considering the traditional close relation between both countries, and let the Minister know that they would appreciate a heads up for future operations ner the border. Recent tensions and events in western Europe have led to the belarusian armed forces being more active in the western portion onf the country.

The Armed Forces of Belarus continue with their routine, monitoring its airspace more closely and with quick reaction forces ready at the airbase in the capital.

Air crews would already be on the tarmac as well as vehicles used to refuel aircraft. The senior non-commissioned officer would approached the plane and offer a Polish two fingered salute.

"Welcome to Poland, friend."

Due to Belarus no longer being an NPC and having had a regime change the operation would end and all units would return to their original stations. Following the paths they had taken to their location they would return via those paths. Safely and secretively of course. With that all in mind, the operation had come to an end, without a single shot having been fired.
