  2. KANIUM SUNDAY 23rd of June 1800 GMT - OP PEACEMAKER by Nike-Ajax Where: Kanium TS : teamspeak3.i3d.net:10077 World Clock 1800 GMT (Same time as always - now adjusted for European Summer Time: click the time below for your local time) World clock 1800 GMT IMPORTANT NOTICE: This SB session may be recorded with video and sound and uploaded, including to a public youtube channel. Everybody is Welcome: you don't have to belong to Kanium. We love playing with you all, the arranger and CO loves you even more if you sign up in advance Operation Peacemaker 6´th of July 2021 SB Mission by Nike-Ajax 0. Background For some time now tensions and disputes have been rising in Eastern Europe, fueled by a number of reasons including the perceived lack of understanding for the position and challenges faced internally and externally by the nations on Europe and NATOs Eastern flank. This has lead to internal dissention in the southeastern area, which combined with perceived threats from the East has led them to increase the expenditure on their armed forces. Specifically then one of the countries bought a reinforced Armored/mechanized Battalion´s worth of used but fully serviceable vehicles from Turkey. This includes a number of upgraded M60´s, AIFVs ((represented by M113AS4)), MILAN ATGMs and at least 20 Leopard 2A4´s. In a very disturbing turn of events that no one saw coming, then the reinforced Battalion which received the equipment, have risen against what they termed "national interests" and against "The EU dictatorship". The Local government have tried to contain them with little luck but have managed to establish a heavy belt of obstacles and mines, forcing the Rebels to slow down and try to consolidate in the AO. EU have taken a more political role, or in others word have not done much of anything. The local Government at this time turned to Germany for help at to stop any further disruption and chaos, in the context of EU and Bilateral agreements. Our government has reluctantly agreed but at this time we have a very limited force in the AO. It has been decided by the politicians - against the advice of the military - that the time to strike is now as the rebels are mostly contained in one area, even though we are outnumbered. The reason for this is not merely that we have the rebels isolated, but much more importantly that Intel have conclusively stated that the Rebel Commander is present at the forward Eny HQ. Thus our primary mission is a Kill/Capture of the ENY commander. Its is expected that the localized rebellion, will fall apart if the ENY Commander is taken out of the equation. I. Situation Time: 0600 Local Time Weather: Lightly clouded with no chance of rain, 23 degrees Centigrade and LOS 3600 Meters General No war have been declared. Our strategic objective is to SECURE and HOLD OBJ GRIFFIN for at least 30 minutes, to enable a SOF Detachment from KSK Kommando Spezialkräfte standing by and under Direct Control of the TF HQ to either capture or kill him. The Rebels have surged a limited distance into our AO, then taken up HASTY DEFENSE having lost momentum and initiative. It is likely they are expecting a COUNTER ATTACK. Terrain: Dangerous mixture of closed and open, with channeling and blocking terrain features particularly to the West and South-west with a combination of a hilly and forested terrain. Friendly Air and ARTY have DESTROYED all the bridges and mined the access points to the West from where the Rebels attacked, thus they can not reinforce except with what is in the AO now which in any case is almost everything they have. Obstacles: The Local government has put a strong belt of minefields (Reference Maptrace) and obstacles to the South-west, to channel, block and delay the Rebels. This minefield has now been reinforced by way of FASCAM (No timer on them as these are older generation FASCAM). THESE AREAS ARE PROHIBITED to all our forces on pain of DEATH. This leaves a number of passes and areas where we - hopefully - can channel the enemy into our Engagement areas, while the SOF Detachment find and Inert the Rebel Commander. Current Situation. The Rebels have pushed into the AO, and now quite literally have their backs against the wall. This means that they have occupied the better positions with superior numbers, however they have not had time to entrench. Our Taskforce (TF) PEACEMAKER, as an independent QRF, have been tasked with this mission. You will be outnumbered but not outfought, But dont underestimate the Enemy. We are on Friendly soil, and must thus expect a fair number of civilians in the AO - and the international community is watching. Therefore, you are tasked to avoid civilian casualties to the degree that it does not endanger your command or overall goals. FIRES in the Urban areas are only authorised by TF COMD, and then only if absolutely necessary. Enemy Forces Strength: ENY Combined Bn(+). Equipment: At least two (2) full combined and reinforced Companies with M60A3, AIFV (With M113AS4 used as substitute) and with additional support and recon troops (From INTEL likely VEC-M1). Likely also screening forces around OBJ GRIFFIN as well as the likely presence of ENY ATGM, which can include MILANs, confidence about last HIGH. The ENY have another two full companies in reserve which they will likely push forward in a COUNTERATTACK when we have taken OBJ GRIFFIN. Confidence about that is HIGH. Quality: likely experienced conscripts and their ammunition the best the Turkish that sold the the vehicles can get. MDA: ENY only in HASTY DEFENSE in Main Defensive Areas (MDA), no constructed defences, entrenchments and major obstacles identified or likely - aside from the known minefields in the South-west of your AO (Reference Maptrace), confidence about which is HIGH. Reinforcement: NOT expected from the North, South or East as their lines of communication are cut for now. They DO have reinforcements to the West Reference Maptrace and per previous. Confidence HIGH. ENY CoA: Likely will not continue their attack, but rather try to lure our forces into an attritional fight where their numerical advantage, and use of terrain, will make up for their weakness in equipment. ENY have access to Artillery in substantial numbers, exact units deployed for this operation unknown. Friendly Forces (FF). Local AIR SUPERIORITY achieved. Flanks. FF North and East to SECURE Flanks, but not to Spt Attack. TF PEACEMAKER: TF consists of 3 x tank platoons of Leopard 2A6 as well as 2 x mechanized infantry platoon of Marder 1A3 (PLTs of 4), along with a tactical reserve of 1 SEC of Leopard 2A6 (2) and a 1 SEC of Marder 1A3 (2) B Coy Dismounted infantry equipped with 2 x Anti-Tank teams (SPIKE MR) (Odds callsigns) and 2 x LMG Teams (Even callsigns). Each MECHINF platoon in B COY thus has 2x Anti-Tank teams and 2 x LMG Teams, the rest being issued with AT-4s and rifle grenades plus a medic team, and are all considered Elite. A team of Friendly SOF under direct control of TF HQ (so not on map), will execute Capture/Kill when OBJ Griffin is Cleared enough to safely execute their mission. FIRES; 4 x 6 Tubes of 155mm SP howitzers, no FASCAM available, 1 x 6 x 120 mm SP mortars with their own supply trucks (with the howitzers being further back, so off-map, 8 CAS strike missions on call. (As usual: ALL ARTILLERY IS UNDER THE CONTROL OF CO AND FO: so do not touch the ARTY controls if you not one of these two). LOGISTICS: Repair Sect, 2 x Supply and 1 x MED Sect. NO Engr, as there are expected no major obstacles in vector of attack. So BYPASS any ENY obstacles. Rules of Engagement. NOTHING IN THESE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT LIMITS YOUR RIGHT TO TAKE APPROPIATE ACTION TO DEFEND YOURSELF AND YOUR UNIT. A. You have the right to use force to proactively engage any and all ENY targets of opportunity. B. You are cleared to fire first on all hostile targets or targets with deemed hostile intent, including armed civilians. C. The force should be used under the circumstances and proportional to the threat. D. We are NOT at war. Destruction of civilian property has been cleared by the local authorities ONLY if CO deems that there is a CLEAR military value and goal in said destruction, including FIRES in urban areas. E. All Laws of War are to be observed. II. Mission: TF PEACEMAKER is to DESTROY ENY between PL PEACE and PL HARMONY as needed iot SEIZE OBJ GRIFFIN & HOLD OBJ for at least Thirty (30) Minutes, IOT facilitate the Capture/kill of ENY HVT. III. Execution Concept of the Operation: Taskforce PEACEMAKER with 2 SECs TAC RESERVE, ATTACK from NORTHEAST to SOUTHWEST; conducting an attack by fire from PL PEACE towards PL HARMONY, and then ASSAULT to SEIZE OBJ GRIFFIN. Once SECURE, PREPARE HASTY Defence to HOLD Objective until SOF forces confirm Capture/kill: expected duration 30 minutes. This will DEFEAT the ENY and PREVENT further ENY offensive operations, achieving our immediate political goal. Commanders Intent Purpose - The purpose of this operation is to DESTROY the ENY forces in OBJ GRIFFIN, then OCCUPY, thus allowing FRIENDLY SOF forces to execute Capture/kill mission on ENY HVT. Key Tasks 1. Attack from PL PEACE towards PL HARMONY to DESTROY the ENY. 2. Seize and Clear OBJ GRIFFIN. 3. Conduct HASTY DEFENSE ITO DEFEAT ENY Counter Attacks 4. Once Friendly SOF have exectued Capture/kill mission, then execute a HASTY RETREAT to original Deployment Area End State: Friendly. FF postured in or IVO Original Deployment Area; consolidated and prepared and able to continue operations towards the SOUTH. Enemy. ENY DESTROYED between PL PEACE and PL HARMONY, unable to support Enemy forces EAST of the Hills. Terrain. All tactically commanding terrain features SECURED and CLEAR of ENY. Civilian. As little disruption to civilian life and property as possible, without disrupting your military goals and the security of your command. Fires Concept. 4 x 6 Tubes of self-propelled 155 mm howitzers that will directly support this operations, from outside of the AO (offmap) and 1 x Six (6) 120 mm self-propelled Mortars for use in AO, with integral ammo supply trucks. There are 8 priority missions ready for tasking. 1 x 6 x Tubes of 120mm organic fires under TF CO control (P1), with organic supply vehicles (P2). 4 x 6 x Tubes of 155 mm off-map fires under TF CO control. 8 CAS sorties were awarded during this targeting cycle of the ATO under TF CO control. Aviation Nil IV. Sustainment Supply TF will carry forward 2 x resupply vehicles, P-1and P-2 have 2 x supply vehicle allocated to them specifically (P31 and P34). No resupply possible beyond that . Maintenance TF will carry forward 1x combat repair team (CRT) Medical TF will carry forward 1x foward aid station (FAS) V.

  3. Allright so we are almost there: I am only online briefly, and then I am off again. Tonight the major issue is that we are on the light side of manning. And given that Assassin is doing OPFOR and hosting, then he can NOT be the CO. So someone needs to step up or it will be settled tonight, which is less than perfect.
  4. Quick update in status: First and foremost something have come up so I can t host. I am working to find a solution right now. Secondly that means we need another guy for OPFOR as well as to host Thirdly and on the assumption that I find a solution, then we need a CO
  5. OK, fair enough and point taken, I will bite: Given that this was intended to be a too all intents and purposes - and for lack of better terminology - a cavalry attack where nothing needs to be cleared by INF or held, and hence the choice of the M3A2 CFV: What then would be the correct wording of the PLTs ? 😊
  6. Well the "Cavalry Men" sounded somewhat antiquated. 🤣 The Choice of the M3A2 CFV is deliberate in this scenario as it is indeed to be a cavalry style mission. They have more ammo for the auto cannon as well as extra TOWs

  8. KANIUM SUNDAY 23rd of June 1800 GMT - OP STRIKEBACK by Nike-Ajax Where: Kanium TS : teamspeak3.i3d.net:10077 World Clock 1800 GMT (Same time as always - now adjusted for European Summer Time: click the time below for your local time) World clock 1800 GMT IMPORTANT NOTICE: This SB session may be recorded with video and sound and uploaded, including to a public youtube channel. Everybody is Welcome: you don't have to belong to Kanium. We love playing with you all, the arranger and CO loves you even more if you sign up in advance Operation Strikeback 7´th of October 2019 SB Mission by Nike-Ajax 0. Background Following years of tensions and proxy wars in the region, combined with support of Terrorists groups from both sides, things have come to a head now. Our opponent - as no one and neiher side officially wants to declare war - have been pressured by their failing economy as well as internal pressure. USA have reluctantly been dragged into this conflict. This is mostly due to the presence of oil and thus even though both USA and EU have tried to become self-reliant on oil since 1973, then they are far from this goal. And ois supply are thsu a strategic goal of the highest order. EU and others have tried diplomacy and talks with little or no effect and success. And diplomacy being what it is, then for better or worse, they are reluctant to support other solutions even though their own does not work. We are thus forced into a number of bad choices and poor options. Of which the politicians have now decided a a short sharp stab is the least bad. So a punitive expedition almost reminiscent of days gone by. This means that this is a POLITICAL as much as a military mission, and thus that everything we do will be measured and weighed. By our opponents and friends as well as UN. I. Situation Time: 0700 Local Time Weather: Ligthly clouded with no chance of rain, 26 degrees Centigrade, no wind and LOS 3500 Meters General We are a TF STRIKEBACK, so a Broadsword being tasked to do the job of a scalpel, but we have our orders, so we make do. We are NOT officially at war, and our mission today is officially considered a "Policing action". A rather hollow and UN-desriptive term which in reality means a punitive expedition against oru NON-enemies. We have been quietly if not clandestinely been landed at our opponents shore in limited numbers and with a narrow focus on our mission. Leading up to this, our opponent have been struck with surgical but limited air attacks, which means that we have Air Superiority locally and that the enemy cant reinforce. More relevantly perhaps, then we have hit the Opponents Oil pipelines, not only hurting their pride and economy. But also forcing them into using Oil Takers to move their primary moneymaker: Their oil. Our goal is therefore to strike and destroy a concentration of the Opponents Tanker trucks. This will serve to hurt not only their military but equally their oil based economy. We have been given the best equipment and ammunition available in theater, but that is about the only advantages we have. Even though the opponent cant reinforce, then they already have strong forces in theater, most ominously perhaps a large number of ATGM´s including the opponents copies of the Milan and TOW missiles. As our goal is to strike and then exfiltrate and not to hold any Object or area, our equipment reflects this. We go in fast, hard and with violence of action it is hoped we will overcome the advantage eth Opponent holds. Terrain: Mixture of closed and open, with channelling and blocking terrain features, making it defensible, paticularly with the number of Opponents ATGM teams. Obstacles: NO Minefields, prepared defences or entrechments. Current Situation. The Enemy is on the DEFENCE with superior numbers, but we have the better equipment and to some degree the element of tactical surprise and they have not had the time to entrench. Our Taskforce (TF) STRIKEBACK, have been tasked with this mission, allthough fewer then we are better in eqipment, ordnance and training. We are on our Opponents soil, and must expect a fair number of civilians in the AO - and the international community and our own country is watching. Therefore, you are tasked to avoid civilian casualties unless it DIRECTLY and CLEARLY endanger your command or overall goals. FIRES in the Urban areas are only authorised by TF COMD, and is FORBIDDEN under ANY circumstances in the indicated Artillery NO Fire Zone (reference Map trace). Enemy Forces Strength: ENY Combined Bn(+). Equipment: At least three (3) full combined and reinforced Companies with M60A3, Chieftain Mk. 5, BMP-2´s, locally produced AFV´s (Represented by M113AS4´s) and ATGM Teams including the equivalent of TOWs and Milan´s and with additional support and recon troops (From INTEL likely Scorpions and Technicals). Likely also a screening forces SE of the Enemy HQ with M60s and otherwise same composition as above, estimated as at least COY+ strength, and deployed in a defensive posture. Quality: likely experienced conscripts and their ammunition the best they can get for their older platforms. MDA: ENY only in HASTY DEFENSE in Main Defensive Areas (MDA), no constructed defences, entrenchments and major obstacles identified or likely, confidence about which is HIGH. Reinforcement: NOT expected from the North nor West as their lines of communication are cut for now. Confidence HIGH. ENY CoA: Likely will initially probe towards our Assault Point with RECON assets and try to hit us with INDIRECT fire missions, but once past that, then they will likely try to lure our forces into an attritional fight where their numerical advantage and number of ATGM teams, and use of terrain, will make up for their relative weakness in equipment. ENY have access to Artillery in substantial numbers, exact units deployed for this operation unknown. Friendly Forces (FF). Local AIR SUPERIORITY achieved temporarily. Flanks. FF SOUTH and EAST to SECURE Flanks, but not to Spt Attack in any way. TF STRIKEBACK: TF in ASSAULT POINT ALHPA consists of 3 x tank platoons of M1A2(SEP) as well as 2 x Cavalry platoon of M3A2 (ODS), there are no reinforcement and no help beyond that. B Coy Dismounted Cavalry troops equipped with 4 x Anti-Tank teams (FGM-148 Javelin). Each Cavalry platoon in B COY thus has 4x Anti-Tank teams but no medic team or LMG, and are all considered Elite. FIRES; 4 x 6 Tubes of 155mm SP howitzers, no FASCAM available (with the howitzers being further back, so off-map) 8 CAS strike missions on call. (As usual: ALL ARTILLERY IS UNDER THE CONTROL OF CO AND FO: So do NOT touch the ARTY controls if you not one of these two). LOGISTICS: In TF STRIKEBACK: Repair Sect, 2 x Supply and 1 x MED Sect.

Mission: TF STRIKEBACK is to ATTACK and CONDUCT EXPLOITATION, DESTROYING the ENY between PL ONE and PL TWO as situation demands and by COs judgment, to facilitate ability to DESTROY ENY fuel truck concentration at OBJ OMEGA, IOT disrupt their future operations and achieve political goals. III. Execution Concept of the Operation: Taskforce STRIKEBACK, ATTACK from SOUTHEAST to NORTHWEST; conducting an attack by fire from PL ONE towards PL TWO, and then ASSAULT to DESTROY ENY fuel trucks. Once achieved, CONDUCT HASTY Retreat to ASSAULT POINT ALPHA. This will DISRUPT the ENY and achieve our immediate political goal.

  9. I understand perfectly: I was lucky my wife was tired and didnt wake up during debriefing. Or she would have flayed me
  10. Alright - we are now functional in all PLTs. @chrisreb I have put you as PLT LDR A2, in the hope that you will make it. It would be nice with one or two more people in MECHINF ☺️
