He then proceeded to open fire on 11 enemy troopers while being fired on by an enemy heavy armor vehicle and combined small arms fire. He accurately and effectively eliminated 11 enemy troopers that were within seconds of capturing the friendly resource node and then proceeded to maintain accurate and constant suppressing fire that allowed his squad to move back into position to defend the resource node.
