There will be a lot of enemies on either side during the ride. Just be alert and it shouldn't be a problem.

2 trucks will follow you. Shoot the enemies in the backs of the trucks. If you blow up the trucks when they are close to the jeep you'll take too much damage and die. The trucks will stop following you when you reach some houses. The chase is picked up by two motorcycle soldiers. After catapulting the riders into the air courtesy of the .30 caliber you'll come to a roadblock. Shoot the guards as the jeep backs up.

You'll go down a side road. There will be a wooden bunker to the right. Strafe the bunker. Past that the jeep will stop briefly by a house. There is a Panzerschreck firing from the balcony of the house.
