A Human Intelligence report states that the area surrounding the Kandahar Airfield has been infested and overwhelmed with Taliban fighters. Afghan Security Forces have fled the area, and there is now a direct threat to the airfield.
Taliban fighters in the area have been heavily armed with automatic weapons (PKC machine guns, Heavy Machine Guns, IEDs, RPGs, and Recoilless Rifles. The enemy will fight in small teams (2-4 men) and will fix friendly forces with IEDs then destroy us with heavy weapons (HMG, RPG, Recoiless Rifles). Expect enemy fighters to be well coordinated with interlocking fields of fire, tied to IED and potentially minefield obstacles. Additionally, there has been SIGINT that indicates a potential attack on the airfield within the next 72 hours.
Local sentiment remains neutral toward both the Taliban and NATO forces - however, that can shift dramatically if any side were to show hostility toward the local populace.
A US Army Stryker Rifle Battalion has been ordered to the area, to conduct a deliberate clearance of Kandahar City within the next 24 hours. Your Platoon will clear the area directly north of the airfield, to include OBJECTIVE RANGERS - this deter any enemy attack on the airfield and provide time and space to allow follow our forces to conduct a large scale clearing operation.

Scenario uses Shot'Kal tanks and M113 APCs Can work with 30+ players Originally played as a Kanium VU scenario on 4 JUN 17
A battalion-sized element from the 18th Ahuristani Armored Brigade has established a defense along Route 1 with company-sized elements, consisting of Rifle Squads and T-55A tanks. Enemy forces are established in Company-sized battle positions, in vicinity of key terrain along the route. The enemy battalion also maintains a Company (-) of tanks in reserve that will be used to counter attack our main body.
Friendly forces are assembling for a massive counter attack to clear the 18th from the Hamrin region. In this sector, Team Kanium will lead this attack by clearing the way for a follow on force that will continue to attack towards Hamrin and Khanaqin.
Team Kanium attacks to seize key terrain to pass follow-on forces to the East.
a. Purpose. The purpose of this operation is to clear the Hamrin region of the 18th Ahuristni Armored Brigade
b. Key Tasks
1. Clear enemy forces from Jalula
2. Clear enemy forces from Qara Tapa
3. Seize the Qara Tapa military installation
c. End State
i. Terrain. Key terrain seized (All OBJs)
ii. Friendly: Friendly forces have freedom of movement to the East.

Artillery Platoon in direct support (6x 122mm guns)
This is a mission using Shot'Kal tanks and Warrior ODS IFV's Originally played as part of a Kanium VU Cooperative session on 16 JULY 17. A medium sized cooperative mission with 27 player slots (6x platoons x 4x vehicles each + CDR, XO, FO)
a. A battalion-sized element from the 18th Ahuristani Armored Division has established a defense around the city of Baqubah, with company-sized elements, consisting of Rifle Squads and T-55A tanks. Enemy forces are established in Company-sized battle positions along pieces of key terrain to protect the rear support-zone of Baqubah, but their exact disposition is unknown.
b. Friendly forces are assembling for a Division-sized attack to clear the 18th Division from the city of Baqubah and continue to the north. In this sector, Team Kanium will lead this attack by conducting a flank attack into the Khalis Pocket in order to isolate Baqubah and prevent enemy forces from interferring with 2nd Battalion's attack into Baqubah.
c. Independent fighter groups are conducting attacks against the 18th Division rear area - hence, such a large force from the 18th Division in the support zone. We received a phone call from an Imam in Balad Ruz who claims that fighter groups will begin emplacing IEDs along key intersections and roads within the next 15 minutes. This action is intended to disrupt the 18th Division, but could also hamper our freedom of movement along the roads. It is highly encouraged to visit the Imam and see if he can apply influence with the independent fighter groups. [NOTE: Dismounts can only speak with the Imam]
Team Kanium conducts a flank attack to destroy enemy forces in the Khalis Pocket.
a. Purpose. The purpose of this operation is to clear the Khalis pocket of enemy forces so that 2nd Battalion has freedom of maneuver within Baqubah and enemy forces are prevented from interferring with 2nd Battalions attack into Baqubah.
b. Key Tasks
1. Seize the Baqubah Bridge to provide mobility for future operations.
2. Clear enemy forces from Khalis Village (we suspect the enemy is using this village for command and control of the rear area)
3. Clear enemy forces from Khalis Farmland (we have information that this area is being used as a staging area for reinforcements into Baqubah)
c. End State
i. Terrain. Key terrain is seized (All OBJs)
ii. Friendly: Friendly forces have freedom of maneuver within Baqubah.
ii. Enemy: Elements of the Ahurastan 18th Armored Brigade are unable to interfere with friendly, follow-on forces.
iii. Civilian: Minimal collateral damage and disruption to the civilian way of life.

The 1st Battalion (Mechanized Infantry) of the 111th BTG is established in a hasty defense around the city of Stadthagen. In our sector, a Company of Mechanized Infantry defends hill 96 and Objective Bull, a small suburb of Stadthagen.
Enemy Assessment by War Fighting Function:
Maneuver - The enemy we are facing is a motorized infantry Company consisting of BMP-2's, and dismounted infantry with AK74 rifles, RPG-7's, and PK Machine Guns. Additionally, we the enemy is reinforced with a tank platoon (T72) from the battalion reserve.
Intelligence - The 111th has deployed their reconnaissance units; platoons of BDRM2 and dismounted scouts

Enemy: Within the past 48 hours the 111th Brigade Tactical Group (BTG) attacked south across the Diamond River. The 1st Battalion of the 111th suffered few casualties but the speed of their operation quickly over-extended their lines of supply and communication. The 1st Battalion is currently postured in a hasty defense along the Diamond River, preparing for future operations with the rest of the BTG reconsolodates. The first Battalion consists of 3 Companies of T64Bs and BMP2s. They have at least one Company defending the Diamond Bridge, along Highway 7, with two Companies further north. The 1-111 BTG does not have any air capability but the has six tubes of 152mm artillery available, as well as 1x reserve Company from the 111th BTG.
Friendly: A Joint Coalition Task Force is forming quickly to the south, and is preparing to attack north.
D Co. attacks to seize OBJ EAGLE to pass friendly forces across the Diamond River.
1. Attack and seize OBJ Eagle
2. Establish a Hasty Defense in vicinity of Diamond Bridge

The 111th Brigade Tactical Group is defending in sector, with one enemy battalion (1/111th) established in a stronghold defense within the city of Al Shakir and another battalion (2/111) established in a defense in depth to the east of the city. The 111th BTG are equipped with T-90S tanks and BMP-2 IFVs as well as dismounted infantry with AT-3 ATGM and RPG-27s. The 111th has no ability to conduct any air sorties, but still maintains a 6-gun battery of 152mm artillery (offscreen). Additionally, the 111th has one Battalion (3/111) in reserve and may employ a counter attack force at any time - our S2 estimates that they will most likely employ a counter attack if Al Shakir is isolated. Additionally, there is an insurgent force controlling a canal crossing to the east of Al Shakir. Our S2 assesses their force to be composed of several rifle squads with AK47s and RPG-7s.
Your Company Team (D CO) must conduct a flank attack to isolate Al Shakir, to allow friendly forces to conduct a clearance of Al Shakir.
1. Conduct an aggressive flank attack on Al Shakir to isolate the city and prevent further reinforcement and logistical support to the 1/111th.
2. Be prepared to conduct a breach of an obstacle belt, vicinity 11 Northing (engineers attached) and a canal crossing to avoid an insurgent stronghold (bridge team attached).
3. Be prepared to conduct a defense against enemy counter attacks once you have established a blocking position to the south of Al Shakir
4. Once you have established a blocking position, friendly forces will begin their assault on Al Shakir.
Battalion has allocated 4x 120mm mortars (offscreen) in support of this operation. Smoke and HE are available.
1. Please stay within the boundaries - there are no real enemy forces in Al Shakir (for performance purposes) and you will get nothing out of the scenario if you cheat
2. The blocking position will be 'set' one minute after friendly forces occupy the area around the bridge.
3. You will be notified when you win, and the game will end shortly after.
4. Have fun, report any issues on the forums.
