1) SITUATION: Aug 2001 Time 1600 Weather Rain steadily clearing
Enemy forces crossed the Albach 2 days ago and are consolidating their positions. Force consists of approx 3 Coy T72m4 and 2 Coy Inf with some BMP.
As they have been in place for 2 days some prepared defences on major approaches to the river are to be expected with infantry and missile teams possible
To the East of the Albach we have spotted another 2 Coy of Tanks which might move to resist our crossing
You have 2xCoy Leo2A5 and 1xCoy CV90NL A further 1xCoy of Leo 2A5 and 1xCoy of CV90 are struggling through refugee traffic to the rear and will join as soon as possible -
hopefully by the time you are across PL Spear
CV90 carry Inf and LMG although we have rounded up a few Dragon systems as well
c) Attachments and detachments: You have a full suite of support and engineer assets
You have Indirect Fire Support 3 x 6 tubes (HE,Smoke and ICM)
You are to seize and hold river crossings over the Albach at Westrau and Oldeslohe. This will reverse the tactical situation and give us the opportunity
for follow on forces to exploit into the enemy's vulnerable rear areas
[Finally: The player's mission]
Seize and hold river crossings at Westrau and Oldeslohe.
a) Concept of Operation:
Whilst you should initially take a measured approach to operations (at least until you have established where enemy main resistance is centered)
enemy reinforcements may be sent if we become bogged down in prolonged operations.
Minefields are likely as briefed above. Whilst you have Plow tanks and AEV support, initially seek to bypass these unless breaching them will assist your tactical operations.
Suspected position of minefields are from incomplete reconnaisance and are not exhustive
(Otherwise follow on forces will clear them)
