The Battle of Birmingham took place on Easter Monday, 3 April 1643, in and around Birmingham during the First English Civil War. In the skirmish, a company of Parliamentarians (Roundheads) from the Litchfield garrison with the support of some of the local townsmen (Clubmen), approximately 300 men, attempted to stop a detachment of 1,400 Royalists under the command of Prince Rupert from passing through the unfortified parliamentary town of Birmingham. A barricade was put up at the entrance of the town.
Royalist Forces are to push through Birmingham and advance to Litchfield. If the Townsmen fire on Royalist Forces, authorization to set fire to the buildings with HE and HEAT is in effect as the Continental Rules of Warfare prohibit an Open Town from resisting.
The Cavalier and Dragoon M60A3 Tank Platoons are to support the plow tanks as they clear a way through the barricade. Infantry from the Musketeer Mech Platoon will capture the town. Missile units in the Mech Platoon will set up for any counter-attack.

A Human Intelligence report states that the area surrounding the Kandahar Airfield has been infested and overwhelmed with Taliban fighters. Afghan Security Forces have fled the area, and there is now a direct threat to the airfield.
Taliban fighters in the area have been heavily armed with automatic weapons (PKC machine guns, Heavy Machine Guns, IEDs, RPGs, and Recoilless Rifles. The enemy will fight in small teams (2-4 men) and will fix friendly forces with IEDs then destroy us with heavy weapons (HMG, RPG, Recoiless Rifles). Expect enemy fighters to be well coordinated with interlocking fields of fire, tied to IED and potentially minefield obstacles. Additionally, there has been SIGINT that indicates a potential attack on the airfield within the next 72 hours.
Local sentiment remains neutral toward both the Taliban and NATO forces - however, that can shift dramatically if any side were to show hostility toward the local populace.
A US Army Stryker Rifle Battalion has been ordered to the area, to conduct a deliberate clearance of Kandahar City within the next 24 hours. Your Platoon will clear the area directly north of the airfield, to include OBJECTIVE RANGERS - this deter any enemy attack on the airfield and provide time and space to allow follow our forces to conduct a large scale clearing operation.

Red have been causing very heavy casualties to our air assets using this air corridor for this AO. It seems there is a heavy concentration of mobile SA19 batteries. Heavy enemy armoured units are also scattered around the area regrouping. T72 have been identified but, unfortunately no accurate aerial recon has been possible owing to the SA19 units. As these are High Value Units t90 may also be deployed as local security
Under cover of a weather front we have managed to close up your force in order to conduct a search and destroy operation. You have 4 xPlt Leo 2A6 and 2 xPlt of Marder (Inf and Milan). There is a possibilty of an additional 1x2A6 and 1xMarder to support

The armored thrust would cross the Karkheh River drive from the northeast part of the province past the cities of Susangerd and Ahvaz, down the west bank of the Karun River. At the same time, forces inside Abadan would break out of their positions, and link up with the armored column arriving from the north.

By ConnaughTHE ELGIN MARBLES - RECLAIMED by Connaugh
The Elgin Marbles are a collection of Classical Greek marble sculptures made under the supervision of the architect and sculptor Phidias and his assistants. They were originally part of the temple of the Parthenon and other buildings on the Acropolis of Athens.
In 1801, Thomas Bruce, 7th Earl of Elgin obtained a firman, which was an official decree,] from the Sublime Porte, the central government of the Ottoman Empire which were then the rulers of Greece, which allowed for the shipping of the marbles from Greece. From 1801 to 1812, the Earl's agents removed about half of the surviving sculptures of the Parthenon, as well as sculptures from the Propylaea and Erechtheum. The Marbles were transported by sea to Britain. In Britain, the acquisition of the collection was supported by some while some others, such as Lord Byron, likened the Earl's actions to vandalism or looting.
Following a public debate in Parliament and the subsequent exoneration of Elgin, he sold the Marbles to the British government in 1816. They were then passed to the British Museum, where they are now on display in the purpose-built Duveen Gallery.
After gaining its independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1832, Greece began a series of projects to restore its monuments. It has expressed its disapproval of Elgin's removal of the Marbles from the Acropolis and the Parthenon, which is regarded as one of the world's greatest cultural monuments. Greece continues to urge the return of the marbles to Greece for their unification by diplomatic and political means.
Failing to have Britain return the Elgin Marbles, Greece has planned an amphibious assault and Greek Armored Forces will land in London and take back the Elgin Marbles.
Greek Armored Forces will move amphibious PT-76 tanks and M113 APC's up the Thames River and land at the Blackfriars Bridge. Heavy Transport will bring in a platoon of 1A5 Leopard tanks. This force will advance quickly to The British Museum and secure the objective while trucks disembarked from another transport will be loaded with the marbles. The force will then make its way back to Blackfriars Bridge and embark for Greece.
Britain will counter with the Scots Guards, who are stationed at The Wellington Barracks, London. The Scots Guards are comprised of Scimitars, Scorpions, and Warriors and infantry with anti-tank weapons. The Scots Guards will attempt to block the return of the force with the Marbles on its way back to Blackfriars Bridge.
No artillery support will be available. The area of operations is in the City of London and there is to be no collateral damage. Rules of Engagement preclude the harming of any citizens.
Platoon 6A (Trucks) must spend 15 minutes at the British Museum (loading the marbles) and then move to Blackfriars Bridge for extraction.
