    ST. NAZAIRE RAID by Connaugh The St Nazaire Raid or Operation Chariot was a British amphibious attack on the heavily defended Normandie dry dock at St Nazaire in German-occupied France during the Second World War. The operation was undertaken by the Royal Navy (RN) and British Commandos. St Nazaire was targeted because the loss of its dry dock would force any large German warship in need of repairs, such as Tirpitz, sister ship of Bismarck, to return to home waters by running the gauntlet of the Home Fleet of the Royal Navy and other British forces, via the English Channel or the North Sea. The obsolete destroyer HMS Campbeltown, accompanied by Motor Launches, carrying Infantry, and Motor Gun Boats, crossed the English Channel to the Atlantic coast of France and was rammed into the Normandie dock gates. The ship had been packed with delayed-action explosives, well hidden within a steel and concrete case, that detonated later that day, putting the dock out of service until 1948. Force Composition: Group 1: 3 x Motor Launches (M113A1), 1 x Motor Gun Boat (PT76) Group 2: 3 x Motor Launches (M113A1), 1 x Motor Gun Boat (PT76) Group 3: 3 x Motor Launches (M113A1), 1 x Motor Gun Boat (PT76) HMS Campbeltown: 1 x Destroyer (ASLAV-PC) with Infantry. HMS Tynedale: 1 x Destroyer (105mm Gun) Each Group is comprised of Infantry with Anti-tank weapons, LMG Teams, and M47 Dragon ATGM teams. Objectives: Group 1: Capture the Old Mole, the Power Station, and destroy the Avant Port Bridge. Group 2: Capture the Winding Station, the Lock, and destroy the Lock Bridge. Group 3: Capture the Pump House, the Storage Tanks, and destroy the Basin Bridge. HMS Campbeltown: Ram the Normandie Dock Gate and destroy the gate. Execution: The amphibious force of Motor Launches (M113A1), supported by Motor Gun Boats (PT76), will disembark infantry to clear out Enemy positions, capture the assigned objectives, set demolition charges to destroy bridges, and prepare for armored counter-attacks with the ATGM Teams. The HMS Campbeltown will ram the Normandie Dock Gate, disembark its infantry and assist capturing objectives. HMS Tynedale will provide fire support from the Estuary. Notes: To destroy the bridges, Infantry must advance to occupy the bridge zones which will activate an IED after a 5-minute delay. Same procedure for the Storage Tanks. The HMS Campbeltown has to break through the dock gate wall to its waypoint, disembarking its infantry, activating demolition charges (IED) to explode in 20 minutes.

    THE BATTLE OF CEUTA By Connaugh The government of Morocco has repeatedly called for Spain to transfer the sovereignty of Ceuta, drawing comparisons with Spain's territorial claim to Gibraltar. The Spanish position is that Ceuta is an integral part of Spain, and has been since the 16th century, centuries prior to Morocco's independence from France in 1956, whereas Gibraltar, being a British Overseas Territory, is not and never has been part of the United Kingdom. Morocco has claimed the territory is a colony. One of the chief arguments used by Morocco to reclaim Ceuta comes from geography, as this exclave, which is surrounded by Morocco and the Mediterranean Sea, has no territorial continuity with the rest of Spanish territory. This argument was originally developed by one of the founders of the Moroccan Istiqlal Party, Alal-El Faasi, who openly advocated the Moroccan conquest of Ceuta and other territories under Spanish rule. SITUATION: The Istiqlal party has gained control of the government of Morocco and has ordered Armored Forces to invade Ceuta to return it to Moroccan sovereignty. MISSION: Spanish forces are to defend Ceuta from invasion by Moroccan Forces. The Torre de Francisco de Asis, Torre de Piniers and Puente Del Quemadero are to be held until they are considered untenable and forces are to retreat to Ceuta. The city of Ceuta is to be defended. FORCE COMPOSITION: 1st Platoon / 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment - 2 x Leopard 2A4 2nd Platoon/ 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment - 2 x Leopard 2A4 3rd Platoon / 3rd Armored Cavalry Regiment - 2 x Leopard 2A4 1st Platoon / 2nd Spanish Legion Tercio 2 x Centauros B1 54th Regulares Light Infantry with anti-tank weapons Artillery of 2 batteries of 3 guns each. Moroccan Forces include M60A3 tanks and M113A1 PC's. Artillery is expected. Mission Score dependent on controlling Ceuta at end of mission.
