About This File
You command a troop (Tp) of M1A1 AIM SA. Your Tp is advancing as part of a combat team (CT) effort to clear the valley to your south as a precursor to further offensive operations by the battle group. The CT's main effort is taking place to your east and to protect the flank of the main effort it is critical you secure the road junction and town at OBJ. All available artillery and air support has been committed to support the CT's main effort to your east so you must secure the OBJ on your own. A platoon of NZLAV-IMV from a coalition partner is attached to assist clear and secure the OBJ.
This scenario has been specifically designed to practice careful planning, appreciation of terrain and tactical movement by sections within the troop (platoon) using overwatch techniques. It is purposely balanced in favour of RED to be unforgiving of tactical errors and to drive these lessons home. It is challenging but can be completed with the forces at your disposal.
Lieutenant, the plan to complete the mission is up to you.
