RU forces are now on the defensive, their attack having culminated with the destruction of the first echelon. Within our AO, a BTG has moved back to defend the R Wylie iot allow RU forces to reinforce from reserves. 3 (UK) Div are advancing from their hides and will conduct a counter attack into the RU flank iot to secure the Corps LD for Follow on Forces (11 ACR). The R Wylie is key terrain and crossing sites must be secured within the next 2 hours iot to ensure 3 (UK) Div momentum in maintained. b) Enemy Forces. NATO does not have air superiority and intelligence is not real-time. The situation may have changed by the time operation commences. RU BTG (-) T-90/80u/BMP-3/AT5/14 has established defensive positions along river Wylie (see trace). Main Defensive Area (MDA) SILVER with at least 1 x Security Outpost Plt(+) each defending GOLD & AMBER; remainder unlocated, but assessed as ivo GR 4485. Enemy MSR identified – see trace. Dispositions & Strength. 1. Latest intelligence 12 hours old. 2. Obstacles (see trace) 3. Artillery/CAS support from Div Tactical Group (DTG) expected, including a platoon of Air Assault Infantry. 4. Militia force identified defending AMBER 5. Combt Power = ~65%. Enemy Strengths (S)/Weakness (W). (S). T80U fires AT 11 Sniper, w/ engagement range of 8km. Likely tanks battle grouped with mech forces. (S). Expect Div Arty Group MRL and CAS. (S) BTG Mech Inf equipped with RPG 27. (S). Air Asslt likely for flank protection. (W). BTG assessed logistical capacity at 40%. c) FF TASKOG. TF Kanium comprises: 1 x Recon Plt (M2A3) 2 x M1AI Armoured Companies (A&B)with an additional 2 x Mech Plt ( M2A2) from C Coy.

Engr Plt ( MICLIC) 1 x MRLS Bty (inc FOO/TACP & UAV Tp) 1 x AH-64 Flt (on call) Fires. 1 x MRLS Bty direct spt; Div Fires Plan: 5 priority missions, 1 x FASCAM (1920 HE 480 Smoke/480 ICM 4 x tubes x 2 Btys); 5 CAS. 2) MISSION: Seize & Secure OBJs GOLD, SILVER & BRONZE iot enable follow on forces continued advance east. 3) EXECUTION: a) Concept of Operation: Momentum is critical to the success of this operation. Rapidly secure crossing site on R Wylie, attack east with sufficient forces to find & destroy logistical elements, while defeating likely RU forces protecting MSR. Strike into SILVER iot seize crossing points is the ME. B Coy will be released for the strike into SILVER. All obstacles in first instance will be by-passed or rapidly breached. Indirect fires and CAS to be used for depth targeting and preparation for attack. RU AD units to be destroyed early to facilitate CAS spt. Intent. Rapidly secure both crossing points on R Wylie within 2 hours iot enable 3 (UK) Div to continue adv east and secure Corps LD for counter attack. Main Effort . Seize SILVER b) Key Tasks: 1. Seize & Secure GOLD . 2. Seize & Secure SILVER (ME) 3. Seize OBJ BRONZE 4. Destroy RU logistical units. 5. Destroy RU Air Defenses - this will enable attack aviation support . c) End State : 1. GOLD & SILVER secure and bridges operational. 2. RU Logistical and Air Defense units destroyed. 3. TF KANIUM in hasty defence in SILVER, fit for subsequent operations. 4) COORDINATING INSTRUCTIONS: Medical spt and resupply/repair are all organic to A Coy CO and units have 2 Days of Supply (2 DOS) and 6 hours ammunition. B Coy is currently moving from fwd FARP and will be supplied for the strike into SILVER 5) COMMAND AND SIGNALS: a. C2. All forces for the operation will be OPCON Coy CO. b. Signal. No Change.
  4. Hallå allihop - hoppas att läget är bra. Eller på dansk: Velkommen og håber at i nyder foråret. Eller på Norsk (Bokmål - ingen snakker nynorsk ... 😁); Hei, gott å se dere Well ... firstly Finland is not Scandinavia. But we love and admire them as our crazy cousins in the North. Swedish is a formal secondary language in Finland and Finnish is a formal secondary language in Sweden. And they have historical close ties, and not just because Finland used to be Swedish. But no matter how we try nobody understands Finnish. We can sorta kinda understand each other - some easier than others - in Denmark, Sweden and Norway. And we also have close ties. For instance Denmark and Sweden have a combined history of warfare against each other exceeding 170 years 😂
  5. Allright Gentlemen We need a few more in the ranks, in both Tanks and MECHINF
  6. First and foremost: My condolences Very sorry to hear it. I wish you and your family the best, in what must be a trying time. We are here for you when you have the time and energy.

We love playing with you all, the arranger and CO loves you even more if you sign up in advance 😁 Operation Mehmed 1' st of June 2023 SB Mission by Nike-Ajax Techical and Scenario info: This is a big scenario. Hence then there are no off map smoke missions and callsigns destroyed is set to disappear after 60 seconds. This is to keep server stable. Map Updates, Map View and Friendly ID is set to ON. 0. Background Following the events in Ukraine and elsewhere, and their consequences, then many nations across the world have taken a hard and long look at their strategic positions. And also their strategic wishes and goals. Right or wrong then this has led some to believe that the West is weak. Whether this is true or not is immaterial and unimportant. Sometimes subjectively perceived weakness is objectively real weakness in Geo-politics, and this is one of them. Following a grinding war in Syria combined with ethnic strife in Shia Majority Iraq, then Iran have slowly evolved their power base in both countries, building on decades of work. And there have been talks of further strategic cooperation and integration between these countries, which the West and Saudi Arabia and their allies have tried and failed to counter and stop. Iranian forces have already trained closely with their Iraqi and Syrian counterparts for a while, as well as posting increasingly strong forces in both nations. While at the same time having Quds force training and building alliances with terrorists organizations like Hezbollah. This not only threatens Saudia Arabia, but also Israel in the West and Turkey in the North, to name some. But the whole region is destabalized. And the situation is made more volatile by the continued fighting with sporadic elements and remnants of ISIS and similar terror organizations as well as with Kurdish forces. The Kurds have a mixed relationship with Iran, having been both foe and allied if not friends with them, during the last 40 years. But are in direct confrontation with Turkey. This whole situation came to a head six months ago, when the three nations of Syria, Iraq and Iran at a joint press conference broadcast across all media, declared that they would join in what was termed the United Islamic Federation. Referendums were held shortly after this, in all three nations, which allthough disputed by international organizations and many other nations at least internally validated the decision. Following this then they immediately started integrating both in military, political and economic ways. And it seems that this was planned for a while, and expected. It was described as a Federation of independent states. But to many other nations it seemed like a de facto, Iranian led super nation, that stood to dominate the Middle east and beyond.Particularly as the Iranian leadership consolidated and expanded their control after the unification. This unsurprisingly created tensions and fears across the middle east as this meant that Israel, Saudi arabia and Turkey now shared borders with UIF. This in turn meant that all the countries surrounding the Super nation increased their military readiness and sought to expand and cement their alliances, with little or nor real effect. Almost two months ago the situation changed drastically when a terrorist bomb took out the entire Assad family. Allthough the Kurds were quickly blamed by the leadership of UIF, then many whispered that it might in fact have been the Iranians removing one of the remaining barriers for total control. Either directly or by proxy through one of the terrorgroups that Iranian Quds force have trained. Regardless of the truth of the matter, then the consequence was that UIF forces struck and struck hard and fast against the Kurds. Intially Turkey for many reasons including historic, welcomed this. However as UIF forces struck ever further north and west Turkey was increasingly worried, and started to make hasty preparations to repel UIF forces if needed. This eventually meant that UIF and Turkish forces came into close contact. And with mutual distrust, tensions running high and a lot of weapon systems in close proximity, then all it took was a spark. And the spark came two weeks ago, when UIF fighters got too close to the Turkish border. And were shot down. The UIF claimed they were attacked on UIF territory whereas Turkey claims UIF had passed into Turkish airspace. With the last decades history in the region, then the border is somewhat fluid in places. So its not entirely clear who is right. What is clear though, is that this has escalated from a border dispute to what is increasingly looking like a full scale conventional war, as neither side wanted - or could - back down. So there has been constant and escalating skirmishes, artillery duels and limited air battles ever since. NATO and the rest of the world is dragging their feet, and while making suggestions and urging talks then in effect they have done nothing. Russia and China and their spheres of influence are on the fence, and have not taken sides yet. Turkey has talked about invoking Article 5 of the NATO charter, but has not done so yet. There are also resistance internally in NATO for different reasons and EU is totally paralyzed and are thus also on the fence. But the Turks have put their military and police on full military readiness. Yesterday a strong UIF battlegroup pushed North. It has been decided that Turkey must strike back ... A line has been drawn in the sand. And the UIF foolishly chose to cross it. I. Situation Time 0530 Local Time, sunrise at 05:33 and sunset at 19:50 Weather Clear sky with no chance of rain, 35 degrees Centigrade and LOS 3000 Km. Wind direction SW at 3 m/s General. We are at war, although it has not been formally declared yet, and no politicians will utter the words. UIF force has thrust a few miles into our territory and in our AO has set up a temporary HQ to the south. It is expected that they will soon thrust further North to expand and consolidate their position. And either create either a better position from which to negotiate or worse still: to push further North as first part of general offensive. The terrain is extremely difficult for both sides, but our hands are tied. This is where the battle must be fought as it is militarily and politically unacceptable to let UIF forces push further north. Due to the remoteness and difficult terrain, then we have not been able to assemble all the forces we would. So we will have to fight with what we have. Among other assets we have allocated an UAV for your use and allocated significant support assets including an artillery brigade, a MLRS battery and 4 strike planes. With these assets, then it is hoped that you will be able to hit the ENY while he is out of formation and unable to bring his forces to bear with full weight. In short we are hoping that you will be able to create the conditions for a counterattack and Defeat the enemy in Detail. From the size and composition of the Enemy then we expect that he will use four columns routes his attack, with a possible additional fifth column. We are politically and militarily still building up, so we need the Enemy to get a bloody nose and show our potential allies and helpers that we are viable and that they can bet on us not to fold before they might help us. Allthough we are rapidly reactivating older equipment and reservists, then the challenge is that neither side can bring their full forces to bear due to the terrain. So we need to be smart and flexible. We expect the ENY to have far less flexibility in their Command and Control structure, which means that we hope to be better able to adapt to the difficult terrain conditions. Our Taskforce Yeniçeri - Janissary, as part of an ADHOC Battlegroup, have been tasked with this mission. You will be outnumbered but not outfought. We have a difficult tasking in that our options are very much open, and the HQ needs us to exploit any mistakes the ENY makes and use all opportunities and has the correct timing and cooperation to execute the counter attack. And do this while remaining combat effective for the next battle, as UIF is already moving reinforcements forwards. If it turns out that the chance shows it self, then you are free to use your own initiative to push further SOUTH as long as it doesnt endanger your other tasks. From INTEL, then it appears that the Enemy have no prepared defences in the South or elsewhere in this AO but from HUMINT and SIGINT, then its expected that they have a light screening force in place to hold off any attack from the North. You are cleared to use all weapons at your disposal with extreme prejudice in all of the AO, including FIRES in the Urban areas. And you have the full weight of the BTN artillery at your call. Terrain and Ground The terrain in our AO is VERY difficult and challenging. Consequently it will shape both our and the ENY´s movement and options. Thus creating both opportunities, problems and hazards for both sides. It is mountainous, including impassable (by vehicles at least) rockfields. Be careful when passing them as this means a risk of detracking Callsigns as well as damaging suspension. Furthermore there are several ravines and gullies which in effect will work as anti-tank ditches spread out over the AO. Added to which is scattered forested areas. Finally there is a deep and wide valley going from NW to SE, which will likely de facto trap any callsigns venturing into it. A careful MAP RECCE is advised. Enemy Forces. The Enemy to our overall front is a Battalion sized(+) combined UIF Force. From Intel, both HUMINT and SIGINT then this seems to be at least the following: 1) One Light motorized Irregular COY made up of Hezbollah fighters under UIF command. Expected to be riding technicals with an assortment of heavy weapons, including RCL, HMG and ATGMs. Estimated strength around 5 PLts in groups of 3 callsigns. 2) One reinforced RECON COY, with estimated around 4 PLTs Scorpion light tanks, and around 2 PLTs BMP-1s. 3) One MECHINF COY, estimated around 4 PLTs BMP-2s of 4 callsigns 4) One MECHINF COY, Estimated around 4 PLTs BTR-80s of 4 callsigns 5) One Tank COY with Chieftain Mk. 5s, estimated at around 4 PLTs of 4 callsigns. 6) One Tank COY with updated T-72s, estimated to be equivalent to T-72B1 m. 1985 level. Confidence about which is HIGH Added to this there is a light screening force around the ENY HQ and STRONG ENY AA units spread out around the area surrounding the ENY HQ. This likely also includes around 2 PLTs of T72s Finally an unknown number of ex-Iraqi T-55 Minebreaching tanks with plows have been seen in the AO. Confidence is HIGH There have been rumours that the UIF is trying to get a handful of Ex-Iraqi M1A1´s into the AO by rail. But we have NO firm Intel on that at this stage. Confidence about which is LOW to MEDIUM. Enemy COA From our INTEL sources and from what we have seen lately, the UIF will form these into Mixed COYs, and expected to attack in four columns. Confidence about that is MEDIUM to HIGH. BUT with rumours of a fifth column unsubstantiated but persistent. Confidence about which is LOW to MEDIUM. We expect the ENY to be experienced and their ammunition the best they can get. The Enemy is on the offence and have constructed no defences nor we do not expect any ENY Obstacles or minefields in your AO, attack vector and direction, confidence about that is HIGH. But we do however expect them to be aggressive and in a combat stance. From history of the ENY, then it is expected that they will stop and fall back if hit hard enough. Thus opening the way for our Counter attack. HQ have promised that other operations will deny the ENY of any further reinforcements from the SOUTH and EAST beyond what is described above. Confidence about that is HIGH. From SIGINT and knowing their SOP, then we know that the ENY have access to Artillery in substantial but unknown amounts. This might include a battery of BM-21s Friendly Forces. We have limited local air superiority, and therefore have 4 strike planes but no rotary wing support. This is primarily due to strong local Air defence around the ENY HQ to the Southeast. But also because Command is afraid of escalating the confrontation too fast. We have NO other friendly forces in our immediate vicinity, with the next line of defence - IF we fail and fall - further North West, and in weak positions. Our Taskforce Yeniçeri - Janissary consists of 4 x tank platoons of Leopard 2A4 as well as 4x mechanized infantry platoon of M113G3 with OWS, 1 HEAVY RECON PLT divided in 2 sections of 3 callsigns each of Leopard 1A5. We also have a tactical reserve of 2 PLT of M60 SABRA (Looks like M60A3(TTS)), 1 PLT of M113 TOW and 1 PLT of M113G3 with OWS. We also have 3 x 6 Tubes of 155mm SP howitzers, which have a full range of rounds including Two (2) FASCAM missions (self-destruct 30 mins) and 2 x 6 x 120 mm SP mortars (with the howitzers being further back, so off-map), as well as support assets from HQ Company (2 x (repair, 2 x supply and medical)). We have no Air Beyond the 4 strikeplanes due to heavy presence of ENY AA and AAA in AO, EXCEPT that we DO have an UAV (P-8). But do not push the UAV too far South it will surely be shot down (Reference Map trace) Our dismounted infantry from B and D COY is equipped with 2 x Anti-Tank teams (SPIKE MR) (Odds callsigns). Each MECHINF platoon in B COY thus has 2x Anti-Tank teams, the rest being issued with 2 x AT-4s and riflegrenades plus a medicteam, and are all considered Elite. 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 at war. Destruction of civilian property has been cleared by the local authorities if CO deems that there is a military value and goal in said destruction, including FIRES in urban areas. E. All Laws of War are to be observed. II. Mission Taskforce Yeniçeri/Janissary is to repulse ENY attacks from South. And then to go on the offence and destroy enemy defenders between PL Öldürmek/Alpha and PL Yikmak/Bravo, and if possible to Destroy ENY HQ to the Southeast. III. Execution Concept of the Operation: Taskforce Yeniçeri/Janissary with 4 PLTs in tactical reserve, will attack from the North and towards SOUTH, setting an attack by fire from PL Öldürmek/Alpha towards PL Yikmak/Bravo, and try to catch and isolate the ENY while they are out of formation and position. They have 2 FASCAM missions to assist in this goal along with limited Obstacles inclduing one (1) Minefield. They will also use own assets to defend FRIENDLY HQ and SP 1 from the Enemy. This will open the area for further offensive operations, disrupt the Enemys defences in the area and achieve our overall political goals in this stage, including blunting further ENY Offensive actions in the short run. Do not risk the integrity of your command by attacking the Enemy forward HQ the SOUTH UNLESS the TF CO is positive enough that this can achieved successfully and without compromising the integrity of his command. However you are encouraged to use initiative and ingenuity in executing the goals. Commanders Intent Purpose - The purpose of this operation is to attack, and then clear the Enemy forces and defeat their will to fight in this AO, while defending OWN HQ and Supply Point. Key Tasks 1. Defend Friendly HQ and SP 1 and repulse ENY Attacks 2. Attack from vicinity PL Öldürmek/Alpha towards PL Yikmak/Bravo destroying the ENY as you go. 3. If possible and sensible exploit any opportunities including attacking the ENY HQ to the South. End State Friendly Friendly forces postured on or in vicinity of PL Yikmak/Bravo; consolidated and prepared and able to continue operations towards the SOUTH and EAST. Enemy Enemy forces defeated or destroyed between PL Öldürmek/Alpha and PL Yikmak/Bravo, unable to support Enemy forces in the Southern part of the AO. Terrain All tactically commanding terrain features in friendly hands and cleared of enemy forces. Civilian Not relevant as all LOCAL inhabitants are evacuated Fires We have 3 x 6 Tubes of self-propelled 155 mm howitzers that will directly support this operations, from outside of the AO (offmap) and 2 x Six (6) 120 mm self-propelled Mortars for use. We also have 1 MLRS Strike on standby (No reloads). Finally we have an UAV (P-8), to assist with target identification and possibly BDA. 2 x 6 x Tubes of 120mm organic fires under TF CO control (P-1 and P-2) 3 x 6 x Tubes of 155 mm off-map fires under TF CO control, including 2 x FASCAM 1 x MLRS Strike Package (2 x 3 MLRS BM-21, P51 and P54), no reloads There are 12 Priority fire missions allocated. The following are our stores of Ammunition allocated for this mission: For the Self-propelled howitzers, and Per tube: 60 HE (Total 1080) NO Smoke 12 ICM (Total 216) For the SP MTR: Full load HE SprGr78 and SMK NbGr88 For the MLRS (BM-21): Full Load 9M521, NO reloads 12 CAS sorties were awarded during this targeting cycle of the ATO, with 4 strike planes. Be careful about using them in the SE of the AO due to strong anti-air capability near the ENY HQ. Aviation Nil, beyond strikeplanes on call. IV. Sustainment Supply TF will carry forward 2 x resupply vehicles. There are 1 Supply vehicle at SP1. No resupply possible beyond that. Maintenance TF will carry forward 2 x combat repair team (CRT), There are 1 x M88A1 MRV at SP1. Medical TF will carry forward 2 x foward aid station (FAS), There are 1 Medical vehicle at SP1 V.

  9. @Grenny and @Mirzayev Update From S2: From available sources including SIGINT and LRRP units, then this is our best estimate of the ENY arrayed against us in the AO: 1) Remains of a ENY RECON COY: Estimated at 1 - 2 PLTs of BMP 1 and BRDM 2. 2) Two (2) TNK COY, with one forward and one back, both estimated at 3- 4 PLTs of T72B1, and formed in PLTs of 3 callsigns. 3) One (1) dispersed ENY INF COY, estimated at 3-4 PLTs of INF. 4) Remains of one (1) ENY MECHINF COY, dispersed across the AO, estimated at 2-3 PLT of BMP-2. 5) Remains of one (1) ENY MECHINF COY, dispersed across the AO, estimated at around 2 PLT of BTR-80. 6) One HQ COY including artillery, CSS, support and some ATGMs. ATGMs from experience is likely AT-4/AT-5. It seems that many of these area arrayed in hasty defences, part from the ones readying to attack. Confidence is MEDIUM to HIGH

NOTE: Red no go zone are penalty zone so avoid! 1.Situation a)Enemy: Enemy is attacking west from Poizten and Kreutzen after they have seized Fassberg Airfield to our EAST. Witzendorf has been taken but fighting in the city continues. Latest recon flight indicate a decimated regiment with heavy losses in their drive towards west. Markings identified them as 48th Guard Tank Regiment and their independent tank battalion. S2 estimate they are putting the OMG BTN foward to attempt one last breakthrough at Tetendorf. Enemy Air warning yellow. b)Own: The 33rd Panzer Brigade has been forced back but in good order. We are still holding important. Soltau is still ours and in Munster fighting has been heavy. As predicited the ENY main advance was along COA-2 (Witzendorf area). The 331st Pz BTN(mixed) is now West of River Böhme and has succeded in delaying ENY forces for several hours and is soon ready for a counterattack. Engineers efforts West of River Böhme is finished and minefield is completed. Your BTN has been reorganized into one battlegroup due to losses. North BG Meinholz (tank hvy) is holding the line. Our small reserve is heading to CSS units for repairs and rearm and is estimated ready in 30 minutes. 334 BTN will counter attack from SOLTAU north and secure northern flank and hopefully cut of ENY reinforcement. BDE is about to begin with the counter attack but it is vital we destroy still the last ENY attempt at breaking out. You have 2x BTY M109 for tasking and 2x M106(Sect) for smoke missions. M109 is for HE and very limited ICM only. BDE is expecting a BTY of MARS rocket launchers to support your BTN. 2) MISSION: You (CO BG Meinholz) will: 1. DEFEAT ENY attack from Tetendorf. 2. ATTACK Tetendorf and retake bridge crossings in that area (BA1-3). 3. SECONDARY OBJ: Continue to attack WEST if possible and retake RONINS HILLS. 4. TERTIERY OBJ: Provide support to 333BTN in their effeort to retake KINGTIGERS FORREST 3) EXECUTION: By CO´s Orders 5) COMMAND AND SIGNALS: Per Kanium SOP Blue Ammo: Main 45% DM33 APFSDS-T (1987), KE 17% DM33 APFSDS-T (1984), KE 8% M57 HE (1980s), KE 18% DM12A1 HEAT-T (1979), HEAT 12% DM12 HEAT-T (1981), HEAT Missile 100% MILAN 2 (1984) ALSO, and per agreement, so SOP from now on: Here is a TEST scenario for the coming Sunday, download, install and verify that it will run.
