Excerpts of the battalion commander's orders for... CG14 Plug The Zierow Gap
1) SITUATION: April 2003 8AM
Enemy Forces have forced their way through the Zierow Gap to the West using the only 2 major roads passing through the Gap - Routes 23 and 24.
Being the Larger road Route 24 is likely to have more traffic entering your AO
Other smaller routes are being untilised so not all enemy are on these routes. However their main force will use these roads in subsequent days
Some units are already through and spreading out as a shield for following forces.
Mainly T80 and some T90 with BMP3 support have been reported by Air Recon with a forward screen of Recon and Inf
All we have been able to scrape together is 2 x PLT Leo 2A6, 1 xPLT CV 90-40 (Inf and by some miracle we have rustled up some Javelins!).
Another 1 x PLT of Leo 2A6 is en route
c) Attachments and detachments: 1 x ARV, 1 x Ambulance, Supply, and 1 X 6 gun battery of fire support
Command are going to try to airlift 2 x AT (TOW) teams in to your AO and will advise if available.These might be useful to protect vulnerable flanks.
You need to Occupy the marked Objectives which are the road exits from the Zierow Gap - even if some enemy forces are bypassed to do so
However only do so if you will not be engaged from the rear
Part 2 of 2
Following our defeat of the Rebels and their 'Volunteer' support in the West of the Island we are now ready to move forward and complete the liberation of the Island.
Enemy continue to land forces from their second wave at the port
Having disposed of the local forces we are now faced with clearing the more capable 'Volunteer' units which continue to disembark at Port Kyrounis.
We understand that 3 companies of T72m4 of the enemy second wave have landed with accompanying infantry (estimated 3 to 4 Coy).
Much of the infantry has been widely deployed on higher ground or covering likely avenues of approach to the port although a Coy strength is possibly BMP2 mounted.
Given the size of the enemy Task Force it is likely 2 further Tank Coys have yet to be unloaded
The remaining Separatist leaders are thought to be sheltering at the Port and no special attempt to capture them should be made.
Again the enemy has limited Indirect Fire Support
Air defences are thought to be in place around the port
The situation is fluid in that as enemy forces deploy from the port area they are likely to be spreading out and can be expected to attack from a variety of directions. Therefore
you should retain the ability to react to flank attacks
FLASH UPDATE: Current drone recon shows latest ship to arrive at Port Kyrounis as having approx Coy strength T90 on deck.
Enemy forces are holding Briarwood and Loperwood. A mixture of T80 with some T90 (estimated 1 Coy) with Mech Inf Support and Recon screen are in the area.
Anticipate that enemy will have some limited indirect fire support
You have 1x PLT of M1, 1x PLT M2 and 1x Sec M3 for Recon .
c)1 Battery of 6 tubes is available (HE/SMOKE/ICM)
Seize and hold both Objectives
3)Weather: Raining and overcast with reduced visibility. Expected to improve within an hour
4)Date:Oct 2010 8AM
1) SITUATION: 7AM 20 August 2010 Weather Clear
OPFOR have cut off sections of the front in confused fighting over the last week and isolated an important dump of non convential munitions.
Their forces block the most direct routes back into our lines.
Composition of enemy is likely to be T80 or T72 with a possibility of T90 given the mixed up nature of recent fighting
Infantry support with BMP2 and possible Missile teams may also be present
Your Task Force was slipped through enemy lines yesterday and secured the Arms Dump.
The warheads have been loaded onto 12 vehicles for transport into friendly lines.
You have 3 x PLT M1A2(SEP) 3 x PLT M3 Bradley Scout, Logistics support plus 1 x UH60 with 1 x Inf Squad and 1x FO
c) 1 x Battery of Indirect Fire Support is available
You are to fight through the enemy cordon and we must evacuate at least half (6) of the trucks into either/both safe areas.
There is no time limit
The marked roues are not compulsory but Recon untis inserted yesterday confirm these are free of mines or IEDs
Enemy forces are also present to either flank and are likley to be called upon as we break into the enemy positions - watch your flanks!
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)
Part 1 of 2
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
) SITUATION: 8AM April 2005 Initial conditions Heavy rain estimated clearing in about an hour
Red have been causing very heavy casualties to our air assets using this air corridor for this AO. It seems there is a heavy concentration of mobile SA19 batteries. Heavy enemy armoured units are also scattered around the area regrouping. T72 have been identified but, unfortunately no accurate aerial recon has been possible owing to the SA19 units. As these are High Value Units t90 may also be deployed as local security
Under cover of a weather front we have managed to close up your force in order to conduct a search and destroy operation. You have 4 xPlt Leo 2A6 and 2 xPlt of Marder (Inf and Milan). There is a possibilty of an additional 1x2A6 and 1xMarder to support
c) Logistics units attached together with 2 x 6 tubes of artillery
You are to sweep the area and neutralize the SA19 mobile batteries. HQ believes there are 2 -3 in this area. Points of interest are marked where they have operated from in the recent past.
All have full scripted Red AI forces
This is a guide to my scenarios which I am uploading summarizing size, composition etc
All have full Red AI forces
Next in my series of scenarios
Red are conducting a hasty retreat accross the Bretton River to the North.
They have rearguard forces covering the last of their withdrawing units after which
they are likely to blow the bridges and establish a defence line along the river.
Enemy Forces consist of T72 but may have elements of T80 with BMP2
The 2 minor bridges between the Objectives are either mined or covered by abatis and as you have insufficient engineering assets at ths time, will not be passable
You have a Coy of M1A1 and a Coy of M2 with support.
c) 1 battery of 6 tubes is available for fire support
You are to attack and seize Biedenbeck Bridge to prevent its destruction and allow Friendly Mainforce to cross and continue the advance.
You need to have at least 1xPLT strength in the area for 3 mins with no enemy AFV present
You will also need to clear Bretton of enemy AFVs as we do not wish to leave mobile forces in our rear. Remaining
enemy infantry can be mopped up later.
Enemy Forces have paused to regroup and pass through follow on units and are making sure major towns and areas of interest are regularily patrolled.
Initial forces will be a local security screen with potentially a Tanl PLT as local support.
Reaction forces thought to be in adjacent sectors of the front to the N and E may amount to 4 Coy Tank and some Mech Inf depending on what local enemy commanders
make of our assault . Equipment is thought to be T90 and BMP2
You have a reinforced Company of Tanks with a Coy of PzrGr Support. Co of the PzrGdr has been killed and unit is commanded by the XO and as such falls under your command.
You have limited indirect fires of 2 batteries of 6 tubes. Possiblity of a follow on mixed company to reinforce success should you establish forces across PL Jackal
c) Pzr Gdr Plts consist 3 xMarder loading 3xMilan 5xInf
You are to secure Route Blue and Seize Heringen. Securing Route Blue constitutes endgame ability to pass follow on forces up Route Blue free from direct enemy fire.
OPFOR units have been reported probing up the valley with a view to outflanking our forces moving forward to the North. You are to confirm that the report is true before friendly forces will be diverted to blocking the probe. Reported as a mix of T80/90 with Mech Inf attached. Strength unconfirmed but potentially 4+ Coy.
Initial Blue forces consist of 3 secs Cav with a Tank Co in support and currently re arming to the rear at Messenkamp
You are to reconnoiter forward to identify any enemy forces moving no further than PL Kestrel. Withdraw as necessary to keep enemy under observation employing dismounted infantry as required.
It is not the intention that the Recon should engage any enemy tank force except to assist their own withdrawal. Move to covert observation immediately on contact with any main force.
