a. Enemy. An enemy Mechanized Infantry Company is established in a defense-in-depth surrounding the villages of Nangar and Zarga. They have established forward defensive positions near the town of Nangar with an Anti-Tank Gun Platoon supported by light infantry. Further to the south we have detected a mechanized infantry company of BMP-1s, supported with a Platoon of T-55 tanks in a deliberate defense near the village of Zarga.

a. Enemy. The enemy has quickly assembled combat power for an immediate attack across the international boundary. We are expecting a mechanized infantry battalion (BMP-1) with T-62 tank support to smash through the border crossing of Al Diraj within the next 15 minutes. The enemy is continuing to prepare for follow-on attacks at a staging site that we have identified to the south.
b. Friendly. This attack has caught us completely by surprise and combat power in the area is extremely limited. A light infantry company from Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCL) is staged and loaded at the FARP to the north and prepared to move. A tank squadron from Lord Strathcona's Horse is en route and should arrive in approximately 30 minutes, along with an armed escort of a flight of AH-64s.
II. MISSION. Defeat the enemy attack and prevent further attacks from occuring in the area
a. Concept. Defend the border with light infantry that are currently loaded in the Chinook helicopters at the FARP. There is an in-bound tank squaron that will arrive in approximately 30 minutes. Delay the enemy and wait for the tank relief force. Once tank support has arrived, prepare a counter-attack to re-establish the border and then destroy remainder of the enemy in their staging area to the south.
1. Hold the enemy - prevent a total breakthrough of the area
2. If necessary - clear Al Diraj and re-establish the border
3. Destroy the enemy forces in the staging area to prevent further attacks
12x 155mm have arrived in sector and are directly supporting your efforts
A flight of AH-64's are en route with the relief force.
The FARP is the only means of support right now, however the tank Squadron will arrive with its own organic support
