OPFOR units have been reported probing up the valley with a view to outflanking our forces moving forward to the North. You are to confirm that the report is true before friendly forces will be diverted to blocking the probe. Reported as a mix of T80/90 with Mech Inf attached. Strength unconfirmed but potentially 4+ Coy.
Initial Blue forces consist of 3 secs Cav with a Tank Co in support and currently re arming to the rear at Messenkamp
You are to reconnoiter forward to identify any enemy forces moving no further than PL Kestrel. Withdraw as necessary to keep enemy under observation employing dismounted infantry as required.
It is not the intention that the Recon should engage any enemy tank force except to assist their own withdrawal. Move to covert observation immediately on contact with any main force.
