Bother at the bridge - part 4

Back at the bridge the first Panhard troop has finally expired in a hail of RPG fire.
The VDV troops secure the village.  The stand of a VDV platoon can be seen under the grey building - clearly it' new tenants are firmly in control.
A sortie by a brave French platoon resulted in this unsightly street brawl.  The end of the bridge is bottom right.
The French reinforcements dismount from their VAB.  They look quite angry.
The Sovs gained the upper hand in the street fight and the French scuttled off back to cover.
Meanwhile French artillery had reduced the grey building to this ruin!

So while the VDV seem to have control of the village, they have taken a battering and the French reinforcements are massing at the other end of the bridge.

Will the Frenchies storm the bridge  - a la Hauptsturmfuhrer Grabner?

What random target will the French gunners hit next? 

Will it be those drums of petrol?

Will some idiot hit the bridge?

Have the helicopters gone for good?

Those defenders are doing too well to be Frenchies. Surely??? ;)
