9 comments by Turkish007 on Feb 26th, 2014

On the day of 22nd October 1993, with a large group of PKK militants, total 1600 men, infiltrating into the town of Lice, Diyarbakır a huge battle started between the local garrison of the Turkish Army.

Location of Diyarbakır

The terrorists launch AT rockets and fire PKM's from houses, apartments, tall buildings, mosque minarets, on to the municipality center, the hospital, and all the buildings representing the Republic of Turkey.

As the assault begins, Diyarbakır Gendarmerie commander Bahtiyar Aydın takes off with a S70 Skorsky helicopter and is dropped off at the courtyard of the divisional HQ in Lice. As he and his men run over to the building to get in safe and sound, the militants open sniper fire and Bahtiyar Aydin loses his life on the spot. Colonel Eşref Hatipoğlu takes command. 

As the clashes go on, Lieutenant General Hasan Kundakçı and his assistant Ilker Başbuğ fly to Lice to aid Eşref Hatipoğlu and his men trapped in the divisional HQ. The pilot of the helicopter does not want to risk being shot down as heavy machine gun fire starts as they try to land to the divisional HQ courtyard. The S70 Skorsky helicopter turns around and lands at the garden of a school which is used as a makeshift field hospital.

Hasan Kundakçı (right)

As the radio conversation of the PKK is being listened, the radio operator hears one militant saying "Lets target that school, 55 dead men will sure make a huge scandal!" and directs his men to the school which is full of 55 wounded soldiers, and 2 major ranked generals. 

There is no chance of support coming from the Gendarmerie garrison (which is 20km's to the East) to the school because the divisional HQ is under heavy fire and is about to fall into the hands of the PKK. And all of the 12 trucks in the batallion are now inactive and wrecked.

Hasan Kundakçı adresses his men demoralized and injured, trapped in the school:

"The enemy has chosen us as we are a weak target for them, but we will prove that we are not! It is better to die fighting than to die while laying on a stretcher. It is going to be hard, and most likely we will not survive. But it is worth for our country! Everyone gather at the hall."

The men who hear this from the speakers of the school, take up arms and take their positions on the windows, the roof and the school gate. 55 men without their legs or arms, 2 generals, and 2 helicopter pilots fortify themselves and await for the attack.

They fight off the guerillas for 14 hours until reinforcements arrive. The PKK is driven back from Diyarbakir. The town is in ruins, yet it is cleaned from all terrorist activity.

Not much, but I started working on a new project which is basically gathering the memoirs of veterans of the South-East Turkey conflict and making them into a book! :)

It's not my domain and as far as I know PKK don't even represent kurds,not one bit. I'll keep an eye out on those tidbits you give out occasionally and see for myself whats going on.
Many apologies Turkish007

Yes, Cryengine can do pretty much everything. :)

New news on PR2 (sort of)! Some animations down at the bottom of the post.

A image of what is to come, though in my opinion, the backdrop does not fit the scene or time period at all.
