The first shots fired at the Transcaucasian War Ministry in Astrakhan by Chechen extremists. About two hours later the Transcaucasian Armed Forces invaded Grozny along with the Armenian and Georgian Army Forces. General Mahmud Shaarazi told the Chechens prepare for a full fledged attack. Then 60,000 Transcaucasian Alliance troops began to surround the city. Then about 20,000 Chechen militants started to fire killing 35 Transcaucasian Allied troops. Moments later the AWAF bombed Grozny killing about 235 Chechen troops. Then Transcaucasian Alliance tanks moved in bombarding buildings.
Then came a wave of firebombings made by AWAF causing 230 buildings to catch fire in many parts of the city. The bombardment lasted 10 minutes killing countless of lives. Some reports say at least 2,650 and 4,560 Chechen extremists were killed. Some 459 tried people flee to other towns but were captured and arrested. Then came a wave of AWAF strikes which destroyed half of the city. General Shiraazi then told his troops to use dirty tactics on Transcaucasian troops. He then ordered about five tanks to storm the streets but were bombed by the AWAF.
