Excerpts of the battalion commander's orders for... CG7 Island Liberation May 2018 4.00AM
Visibility initially hazy but quickly burning off to 3000 m plus
Following the collapse of the mainland government, rebels have seized government military assets and declared independance. However the uprising lacks popular support being largely instigated by Russia who seeks a futher Mediterranean port. Whilst local rebel forces are equipped with T 62 and older equipment they have suddenly acquired a good number of more modern T 72, crewed and supported by 'volunteers'.
A US led Taskforce has arrived off the Island with the intention of restoring Government control. A depth bridghead is to be created before additonal enemy forces can consolidate their hold on the Island
Whilst local rebel forces are equipped with T62 and older equipment they have suddenly acquired a good number of more modern T72m4 crewed and supported by 'volunteers'.
The newer equipment is based in the Eastern side of the Island and may take a little time to deploy at least part
of the force to our AO. Immediate opposition is expected to be the local breakway rebel forces and irregulars.
Estimated the Rebel forces have approx 2 Coy T62, supported by up to a Coy of BMD with independant Infantry teams around the objectives and other built up areas.
As this is a loosely organized Rebel force precise organisational details have been hard to come by
