Area Reconnaissance at Neustadt am Rübenberge 1989 v2.1 (4.010) 2.1

You command a company-sized kampfgruppe of 4 (Mixed) Company, Panzer Reconnaissance Battalion 1. This comprises of 2 x platoon of six Leopard 1A5, a section of 4 x Luchs A2 and a platoon of 3 x Fuchs 1A6 from 5 Company attached. 

The Soviet 3rd Combined Arms Army is attempting to encircle HANOVER and lead elements of 7th Guards Tank Division captured NEUSTADT AM RÜBENBERGE late yesterday. Helicopter reconnaissance confirms a BTR-equipped motorised rifle company has occupied the town and established a hasty defence. After a pause overnight the Soviet advance and encirclement of HANOVER is expected to continue at first light. 

Commander of 1 Panzer Division’s (1 PzDiv) intent is to confirm strength of enemy (ENY) defence in NEUSTADT AM RÜBENBERGE in preparation for counterattack. Additionally, determine direction of advance of ENY forward security element so 1 PzDiv can move to block main body along axis of advance. Insert a patrol using infiltration route BEOWULF to observe and report on activity behind ENY lines. Avoid decisive engagement and maintain combat effectiveness for follow-on tasking by 1 PzDiv. You have a troop of three M109G 155 mm self-propelled howitzers firing HE and SMOKE in support. 

Hauptmann, the plan to complete the mission is up to you.

WARNO 1:

Task Organization:

TM A - A2 (Organic)
- Mission Command: A2
- Attached: A66

TM B - B1, A1 A Section (A11, A12, A13) 
- Mission Command: B1

TM C - C1, A1 B Section (A14, A15, A16)
- Mission Command: C1
- Attached: A65

I. Situation:

Terrain: The largely homogeneous nature of elevation within the AO makes the intermittent hills valuable for establishing effective observation. Microterrain within the AO can be used to provide both cover and concealment. Heavily forested areas provide effective concealment, and will reduce overall rate of march, and will reduce observation and fields of fire to approximately 500 meters. Areas lacking heavy forestation can provide observation and fields of fire from 2-3 KM.

Enemy: 

Overview: Enemy forces will be a mix of BTR-80s, T-72s, and BMP-2s. There is a possibility of encountering T-64s, BRDM-2ATs, and MI-24s. Enemy will be established in a Disruption Zone, and Battle Zone; the Support Zone is unlikely to be encountered within our AO.

General Capabilities: Enemy artillery have the ability to employ at a minimum 3x simultaneous fire missions at Battery strength each. The enemy has up to 2x sorties of MI-24s (4x total) available as a reserve. Enemy forces will not possess thermal technology equal to BLUEFOR; however the limited observation and fields of fire within the AO will negate this advantage to BLUEFOR. 

Disruption Zone: The enemy will employ maneuver-based reconnaissance assets to prevent infiltration of the AO by BLUEFOR. Analysis indicates encountering up to 4x CRP-style elements. Expect composition to consist of 3x BMP-2s, or 3x T-72s. Expect at least 1x CRP to consist of 3x T-72s. CRPs will conduct a screen and will engage BLUEFOR with indirect fire at distances of greater than 2KM, and employ direct fire weapon systems at distances of less than 2KM. Due to the restricted observation of the heavily forested areas, expect direct fire to be the first form of contact.

Battle Zone: 1x Motor Rifle Company (MRC) has established a hasty defense IVO Neustadt am Rubenberge. Expect to encounter approximately 30x BTR-80s supported by dismounted infantry. There is a possibility that the MRC has been reinforced with BRDM-2ATs, or T-64s in approximately Platoon (+) strength (6x vehicles or greater.) Enemy MRC is expected to maintain a hasty defense, and will employ indirect fires to defeat BLUEFOR. MRC is not expected to conduct a counter-attack, but will hold ground at all costs. The MRC may be reinforced by 2x sorties of MI-24s if attritted to 70% strength. The MI-24s will conduct an attack by fire to enable the MRC to retain control of Neustadt am Rubenberge. 

Advance Guard: The Advance Guard will consist of one Company Team of either 3x BMP-2s and 6x T-72s (Tank Heavy), or 6x BMP-2s and 3x T-72s (PC Heavy.) Expect the Advance Guard to employ 1x CRP, consisting of 3x BMP-2s and 1x T-72, at a distance of 2KM+ forward of the Company Team. The Advance Guard will be followed at a distance of 1KM+ by 1x Battery consisting of 6x 2S1s and 1x MT-LB (FO.) The Advance Guard will advance through the Battle Zone, and will have three options for maneuver: K347, K333, or K332. The Advance Guard may be reinforced by up to 2x sorties of MI-24s. The MI-24s will be employed to conduct a movement to contact to prevent envelopment of the Advance Guard.

II. Mission: TF Kanium conducts an area reconnaissance of Neustadt am Rubenberge to identify composition and disposition of enemy's defending force. On order, TF Kanium transitions to a screen to identify the scheme of maneuver of the enemy's advance guard. 

Expanded Purpose: The purpose of this operation is to identify the composition and disposition of enemy forces within our AO. This will set the conditions for 1 PzDiv to block the enemy's advance, and to prepare for a counter-attack. 

Key Tasks:
1. Identify the composition of the MRC IVO Neustadt am Rubenberge.
2. Determine the scheme of maneuver of the enemy's Advance Guard. 
3. Infiltrate C1 along Route Beowulf.
4. Maintain combat power at 80% or greater.
5. Do not become decisively engaged.

III. Execution:

Tasks to Subordinate Units:

TM A:
1. Determine composition of MRC IVO Neustadt am Rubenberge.
2. Confirm or deny enemy Advance Guard maneuver along K333 or K347.
3. On order, provide far-side security IVO K347 for TM C's infiltration of Route Beowulf. 
4. On order, reinforce TM B or TM C.

TM B: 
1. Determine composition of MRC IVO Neustadt am Rubenberge.
2. Confirm or deny enemy Advance Guard maneuver along K347.
3. Provide near-side security IVO K347 for TM C's infiltration of Route Beowulf.

TM C:
1. Confirm or deny enemy Advance Guard maneuver along K332 or K333.
2. On order, infiltrate into enemy's Support Zone via Route Beowulf. 

CSS:
1. BPT provide maintenance and medical services upon request from TM A, TM B, or TM C.

Coordinating Instructions:

1. Conduct boresight and crew drills on all platform weapon systems. (IE: practice gunnery at the Tank Range prior to mission start.)

IV. Sustainment:

Concept of Sustainment: CSS consist of 1x M88 and 1x M113 Ambulance; TF Kanium does not possess an organic resupply capability. CSS will establish 2KM or 1x major terrain feature from the Forward Line of Troops.

Task Organization: No Change from WARNO 1.

 

I. Situation: No Change from WARNO 1.

 

II. Mission: No Change from WARNO 1.

 

III. Execution:

 

a. Concept of the Operation: This operation will be conducted in four (4) phases. 

 

Phase I - Penetration of the Disruption Zone: This phase will begin upon crossing the FEBA. TMs B, A, and C will maneuver along AoAs Taylor, Saint, and Hepburn to PL Italy. Any encountered CRPs will be destroyed via direct or indirect fire to prevent effective enemy counter-reconnaissance during Phases II and III. TM B will clear LRP 1. Upon clearance of LRP 1, CSS will establish within LRP 1. This Phase will end upon reaching PL Italy.

Phase II - Identification of Enemy Composition in Neustadt am Rubenberge: This phase will begin as TMs reach PL Italy. TMs B and C will transition from mounted maneuver to the establishment of dismounted OPs IVO ZB1, ZB2, ZC1, ZC2, and ZC3. TM A will establish a mounted observation post IVO BP ZA1 and observe NAI 03 to determine composition of enemy forces in Neustadt am Rubenberge. If unable to determine composition via observation, reconnaissance by fire is authorized. This phase will end upon the successful identification of enemy composition at NAI 03.

Phase III - Identification of the Advance Guard's Scheme of Maneuver: This phase will begin upon the successful identification of enemey composition at NAI 03. TM A will displace to CP 10 and will act as the Company Reserve. TM B will observe NAI 01 and NAI 02 to identify the enemy advance guard. TM C will observe NAI 04, 05, 06, and 07 to identify the advance guard. If the advance guard is identified by TM B, TM C will immediately begin to collapse their dismounted OPs and will begin to maneuver to the start of DOA Walrus. This phase will end upon identification of the Advance Guard maneuvering along K347, K333, or K332.
