  7. Sunday 23rd of April "Capture the dam" By Kingtiger When: Sunday 23rd of April 1800 UTC Where: Kanium TS ( teamspeak3.i3d.net:10077 ) World Clock: World Clock 1800 UTC CAPTURE THE DAM ORDERS TASK ORGANIZATION Bn CO Lima 66 (Strv 122) Bn XO Lima 65 (Cv9040B) Bn FOO Papa 1 (FOV90) 1 Tank Coy of 3x3 + 2 (CO and XO) (Strv 122) 1 Mech Coy of 3x3 + 2 (CO and XO) (CV9040B) Both Coys have CSS platoon of 1 ARV and 1 M113MED 1 Eng Platoon of 3 M113ENG 1 Eng Troop of 2 AEV Wisent with full wide mineplow 1 Eng Troop of 2 Biber Bridge layers with extra bridges available 1 Logistics company of 3 ammo +1 fuel truck, 4 Ambulances and a repair platoon of 2 Wisent ARV and 2 M113REP. 2 Mortar platoons (2x3) M1064 2 Haubitz Platoons (2x4) of M109 TERRAIN ORIENTATION a)Terrain This is Finland, Plenty of forest, hills and water. The forest are thick with trees and stones and hard to travel through (10-15km/h at best). LOS is initially good with 1-1.5km shooting distances but later on shrinks to 150-500m as we move further south. Major lakes allows for good LOS over the lakes. The AO is crossed by several water obstacles, the first being the small river of TORASJOKI that is crossing WEST to EAST around SOPANEN. Next are the two lakes of SOMPANEN and LAPPALANJÄRVI that together with the cannal between the river KYMIJOKI and LAPPALANJÄRVI shrinks the AO to almost half it size in with. Final water obstacle is the river KYMIJOKI itself who spanns around 50-150m wide and are damed up by a hydroplant west of VOIKKA. If the dam the hydroplant has built would to be blown it would flood the lowland below it with the towns around the river and risking of taking the bridges over the river KYMIJOKI with it, stopping us from using the bridges. S3 Mobility have drawn up on map expected flooding limit in case of hydroplant damn exploding, Marked with purple dotted line, needles to say that anything in that area will drown if the damn is to burst. When it comes to hills there are two areas that stands out in particular, the first one is the ridgeline at MULTAMÄKI that divides the AO in two sections and the hills between the lake RIIHILAMPI to HAUTALA that channels the roads into easy to defend terrain. Further south we will enter built up areas with all that it means of 3D fighting and short LOS. b)Weather Weather is overcast with no rain expected for the next 24hours. 1. SITUATION With Russia attacking Finland Sweden mobilized its 3rd Brigade and sent it to the aid of Finland and has been deployed in the area NORTH of KOUVOLA but has yet to be sent into combat. a) Enemy Forces Last days the russian forces have attacked WEST from VYBORG area, taken KOTKA and with parts keept pushing WEST towards BORGÅ and parts pushing NORTH against KOUVOLA who fell 3 days ago and enemy forces are now closing in on LAHTI to the WEST. Enemy forces consist mainly of BMP-2 and T-90S organised in Battalion Tactical Groups by default giving them 3 Mech coys with 1 tank coy in support per BTG plus usual support of Grenade launchers, ATGMs and indirect fire in 120,122 and 152mm calibers. Units reported to our front is a BMP-2 BTG (-) who have been given flank cover duty after prior combat days which has left them down to asumed 70% strength. They have however been supported by a Engineer Coy from the Brigades Engineer Battalion with 48hours work time so expect dug in enemy forces with plenty of field fortifications prepared. As this is a low-priority front we have no indications of air support or attached attack helos in support of the BTG. There are reports that russian engineer units have started preparing the hydroplant dam for detonation, expected to be ready to blow in 2 hours time (18.30 local time) if they feel they have to pull back and defend KOUVOLA. b) Friendly Forces Our brigade (3rd Brigade) have been moved to NORTH of KOUVOLA together with Finnish forces from Karelian Infantry Brigade to attack and take KOUVOLA in order to cut off the northern route towards LAHTI. Our brigade consist of 3 Mech Battalions (191st, 192nd and 42nd) consisting of 2 tank coys and 2 mech coys per Bn with brigade artillery from 91st Art Bn and a reinforced Company of engineers from 21st Eng Bat. c) Attachments and Detachments 91st Art Bn of 8 Archers in 2x4 platoons with HE, SMK and ICM rounds. (22/6/8) Bn Mortar of 2 x 3 120mm Mortars with HE and SMK (49/20) 212st Eng Coy (-) with 1 Combat Engineer platoon of 3 M113ENG and 2 AEV with full widht mineplow and 2 Biber bridgelayers. d) Civilan situation Most Civilians have fleed WEST to get away from the russians, do not expect to much interference from civilians on the roads or in the villages. 2. MISSION 191st Bn are to attack and seize the DAM/HYDROPLANT WEST VOIKKA ( D1) and the TWO BRIDGES SOUTH VOIKKA (B6 and B7) in order to prevent Russian from blowing the dam and to capture the two bridges for follow on attacks SOUTH towards KOUVOLA NLT 041830. 3. EXECUTION Intent Brigade commanders intent is to attack with 191st Bn to V05-V06 line prematurely to capture the dam in order to prevent the russians from blowing it up and flood the terrain east of VOIKKA and risking destroying the bridges. a) Concept of Operations Attack over the lines of Victor 01 to 03 to V05-V06, Seize the DAM named D1 and the two bridges B6 and B7 b) Purpose The purpose of this operation is twofold, to capture the two bridges in order to enable further on attacking SOUTH towards KOUVOLA and to capture the Hydroplant DAM to deny the Russians the ability to blow up the dam and flood the lowground, risking to take down the two bridges through the dam. It is more important to seize the Dam and the two bridges then to destroy enemy forces. c) Key Tasks 1. Capture the dam before 18.30 local time 2. Capture Bridge B6 and B7 3. Prepare continuing attack south towards KOUVOLA d) End state Terrain: Objective D1 (Hydroplant Dam) and the two bridges B6 and B7 are in our hands intact Enemy: Enemy forces unable to affect our movement across the bridges and not able to blow up the dam. Friendly: Bn have sustained no more then 25% losses and are defending the bridges to enable further attacks south by the brigade. 4. ADMINISTRATION/LOGISTICS a) CSS BN have 3 Ammo trucks and 1 Fuel trucks available for combat resupply if needed. Ammunition for the Archers (Howitzers) are lacking so for this fight we only have their combat load, Brigade CSS are working on getting more 155 forward but they are not expected to arrive untill first light tomorrow. There are two replacement bridge locations named RB1 (871 633 ) and RB2 (814 569) that enables the ABLV to pick up more bridges as they spend them. (this is to simulate that CSS Coy have extra bridges on trucks they can come up with). b) Medical Every company have 1 M113AMB for MEDEVAC duty, BAS (Battalion Aid Station) have further 4 unimog ambulances for longer treatment/Transport to BAS. c) Repair All callsigns are responsible for initial combat recovery following a handover to Battalion Heavy repair Platoon who has ARV and M113REP at disposal to support with if needed. Every Coy also have their own ARV to recover more advanced incidents or to bring vehicles back to Battalion repair platoon. 5) COMMAND AND SIGNAL Bn CO = Lima 66 Bn XO = Lima 65 FOO = Papa 1 1st tank coy = Alpha 2nd Mech COy = Bravo Engineers = Echo CSS = Hotel ********************* Capture the dam 1.0 By Kingtiger 2017/04/16
  8. That's ok we have a rule that says family is more importent then SB/Games we just like to know MD
  9. Here is how to buy it i recommend you try it for a Month first: http://www.esimgames.com/?page_id=1361 Please read this section: http://www.steelbeasts.com/sbwiki/index.php?title=Starter_Pack On 14/4/2017 at 2:31 AM, Panzer_Leader said: I completely agree with Panzer_Leader We offer a "New Guys/Virgin" training session where 2-3 guys go online with you and try teaching you and/or let you try out different ways of doing multiplayer including how you operate in a Platoon how you need to behave move around position your self etc... (because coming in to a game with 20-30 guys is way overwhelming at least it was for me) We also recommend trying the different VUs because every one of them are a little different in their playstyle so shop around and find the one that fits your style and/or timezone.

  10. Not only the Commanders but also the officers sometimes when we play if 2 of them are in the same channel suddenly it sounds like there is a crypto on the radio and somebody is getting an earful. MD

  12. Yes Mark But unless you volunteer for them especially i don't wont to misuse you i think you have had one of those special positions every time you have played with us so i wanted to be able to let you do something else plus i know Chris is playing regularly with Anzac and i where hoping that you would be able to help or help improve his PLT leader skills as he is comparatively new at that and so that he got other influences then those in Kanium. And besides i have also asked Hedgehog to be FO so if he says no then you might still be there if you still wont to be MD
  13. We play version 4019 Sunday So do the upgrade in good time as it takes some time because it needs to uninstall previous and make a full reinstall after ! MD
