Operation Golden Eagle
Medium-Sized Cooperative Mission
A mixed enemy Company from the 18th DTG is established in a defense-in-depth surrounding the villages of Nangar and Zarga. They have established forward defensive positions with a Platoon of light enemy forces overlooking a minefield, as depicted on the map. Further to the south, a company of enemy armor (T-62) is defending the village of Zarga, with 1 to 2 platoons defending forward, and 1 to 2 more in reserve.

C Squadron is a light reconnaissance company currently positioned to the north. They are equipped with fast attack vehicles (jeeps with 7.62mm machine guns) and have 2-man scout teams, as well as 2x platoons (C4 / C5) of engineers that will be used to clear a lane for B CO.
B CO, our tank company, is equipped with 3x Platoons of Centurion tanks (Shot’Kal) and 2x Platoons of M113s and infantry squads (SAW + UGL + LAT), as well as 4x mortar carriers and a support element (Medical, Resupply, and repair)
