KANIUM SUNDAY 27TH OF MAY 1800 GMT - "OPERATION JANUS" BY SNS Where: Kanium TS : teamspeak3.i3d.net:10077 World Clock 1800 GMT(Same time as always) World clock 1800 UTC IMPORTANT NOTICE: This SB session may be recorded w. video and sound and uploaded, including to a public youtube channel Everybody is Welcome you don't have to belong to kanium TF 3-78 TOC somewhere near STEINFURT – really early!! “Gentlemen please sit down” Lt Col Sweet looked tired. A coffee in one hand and a cigarette in the other he seemed to fall into his rather rickety folding camping chair. Huddled in his large combat jacket, and non-regulation fleece, he took a sip of coffee and slowly looked around the crowded audience. In the dim light of the tent, the low hum of the Bn TOC at work carried on in the background. “OK, listen up, this IS important. I have just got off a call with the Bde COM – I know it may not look like it right now, but apparently, we are winning. NATO air forces have turned the tide in the north. The Brits, Germans, Belgians and Dutch Corps managed to HOLD the Poles and Soviet 3rd SHOCK Army at the Dutch Border, with a little help from our REFORGER units that managed to get there in time – they made a difference. The French have also gave a good account of themselves, but being French did not stray too far from their own borders. Still………… So, the good news gentlemen is the Soviets are on the defensive, which means we get to ATTACK. Now I will let the staff brief you in a minute, but I wanted to give you my thoughts first, before you all get mired into the detail. I have a very simple mission. Go find the enemy, destroy him quickly to facilitate the CORPS flank attack into the Soviets rear areas. That is the good news. The bad news is I need to do this within the next 6 hours. 5 US Div RESERVE is the lead element of the Corps attack and is already mobilised and on their way here. We can expect to see their forward elements in the next 4 hours. And, the Enemy gets a vote. Our Soviet friends have only just moved into Hasty Defence and I do not want them to be too settled. We gave them a bloody nose, but as you all know they stopped themselves, they still have a lot of combat power. This will not be easy. But be clear, we MUST DESTROY the enemy force to our East and open a path for 5 Div to rapidly exploit. Now listen to the Staff, read the FRAGO and leave questions until the end. Lt Col Sweet stopped and let out a long breath. He looked at each of the TF Commanders in turn and wondered who would still be there for the AAR? Excerpts of the battalion commander's orders for TF 3-78... 1) SITUATION: a) Enemy: 1. Terrain: See Bn Trace. 2. Weather. Temp -6. vis out to 3000m, 50% chance of snow/sleet. 3. Vital Ground.
