  1. 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.

We love playing with you all, the arranger and CO loves you even more if you sign up in advance Operation Vodka Rave by TinFoilHate (United Operations) In the wake of the initial Soviet attack, NATO forces have ground them to a near halt, but supply issues plague both sides, and forces are beginning to wear thin on men and equipment. This hasn't entirely stopped the Pact advance, and as fresh Soviet forces probe for weak points, TASK FORCE SIERRA holds one such approach. SITUATION: a) Enemy: Enemy consists of the forward elements of a motor rifle regiment. Enemy armor appears to consist of T-72s, with accompanying BMP-2, BTR-70, and BRDM-2 vehicles. b) Own: Adjacent friendly forces are located to the north and east. We are the only unit to the southern flank. c) Attachments and detachments: TF SIERRA consists of TEAM JULIET, portions of a recce battalion, and COY TEAM HOTEL which composes the rest of the TF, and consists of two times two Leopard 2A4 PLT, with an attached MechInf PLT and an integral supply vehicle. MISSION: Friendly forces are to GUARD the southern approach through the lowlands vic EXTERTAL, delaying the approach of forward elements of the enemy force.

  3. KANIUM SUNDAY 6th OF JAN 1900 GMT - Here We go again … by Nike-Ajax (based on OP TESCO by SwordsmanDK and SnS) Where: Kanium TS : teamspeak3.i3d.net:10077 World Clock 1900 GMT (Same time as always - now adjusted for Winter Time) World clock 1900 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 We will be reducing the Scenarios slightly in size and complexity to match the attendance until further notice Apocalypse_Operation_Caged_Bear Operation Caged Bear by Apocalypse I. Situation. Most don't know his real name, but simply refer to him as THE BEAR (Karhu, in Finish). He remains a feared leader in the region; respected by both subordinates, civilians, and the enemy. 6-hours ago a Human Intelligence source indicated that The Bear has gone missing, potentially as part of an enemy raid by special operations forces operating in the area. Imagery and Electronic Intelligence has determined that his exact whereabouts has been linked to a small grouping of villages to the north (OBJ CAGE), which is surrounded by a mixed company of light infantry, supported by armor (T-72B). Our reconnaissance has identified a series of enemy outposts, each one supported by a platoon of light infantry - all within reach of enemy armor that can quickly reinforce it, if necessary. Additionally, there is a significant unconventional threat in the area. Local enemy insurgents will use the temporary absence of The Bear to their advantage and will attempt to quickly seize power in the area. Signals Intelligence has indicated significant activity, and potentially a massive rally of enemy unconventional forces. B and C Companies are positioned on our flanks. Both Companies are light infantry, postured in defensive positions, keeping a sharp eye on the enemy. Our Company (A) is located at Forward Operating Base Serpent, equipped with 2x platoons of Leopard 2A4 tanks, and one platoon of CV9030 (FI) IFVs, as well as 1x 81mm mortar section to support his operations. II. Mission Conduct a raid to retrieve The Bear within a 2-hour window III. Execution Intent. The purpose of this operation is to retrieve a local special operations commander. It is imperative that this operation be successful, as it may potentially hinder the relationship with local indigenous forces as well as the national-strategic alliance that has been developed over several years. End State. Within TWO HOURS, The Bear is safely returned to FOB Serpent, unharmed and ready to be turned over to local forces. IV Support. One support platoon has been allocated for this mission which includes resupply, medical, and repair vehicles V. Command and Signal A-66 has overall command responsibility for this mission Additional Coordinating Instructions 1. The Bear will spawn once players find his location and approach him with dismounted infantry. 2. Return The Bear to the FOB and the mission will be successful (2 minutes in the FOB will trigger the win criteria) 3. Satellite Imagery indicates that The Bear was last wearing a Brown t-shirt and blue jeans with sport shoes 5) COMMAND AND SIGNALS: Per Kanium SOP
  4. KANIUM SUNDAY 11th OF NOV 1900 GMT - Operation JAALA Bridge by Kingtiger Where: Kanium TS : teamspeak3.i3d.net:10077 World Clock 1900 GMT (Same time as always - now adjusted for Winter Time) World clock 1900 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 JAALA BRIDGE DATE: 2014-10-17 06:47 WEATHER: Raining, wet ground and visual range of about 1500m. 0) INTRO Damned October, this rain never stops making everything soaking wet and mud everywhere. To make it even worse the russians are doing a damn fine job bombing our forces everywhere we show up when the weather improves. Since the war began 2 days ago the sound of guns have hardly stopped a single time. And once they do stop it to mark a new air strike coming in. Not many in the Finnish Defence Forces was supprised when Putin sent his dogs over the borders of Finland and entire Baltics with the excuse that he is defending russian people in the Baltics and at the same time answering the Finnish "provocations" with steel on steel. But it did although take us a bit on the bed, so many supplys vehicles has gone up in smoke in air attacks and we had to scramble into the deep forest of Finland to avoid the air attack and start forming our defence. 1) SITUATION: a) Enemy: 138th Motorised Brigade have attacked west last two days but has been stopped east of KOUVOLA (to our SOUTH) by friendly forces and are now prowling a new route westwards. Last known contact was south of LINTUKYMI river at LAMMINKYLÄ where a BMP-2 Platoon was spotted close to the blown bridge along Route 46. We have 138th MotBrig against use who are composed by BMP-2 and T-72B with support of 155mm SPG.Most likely enemy COA is to take the bridges over LINTUKYMI and push on to JAALA to either continue WEST to VIERUMÄKI - LAHTI or go SOUTH along smaller roads to KAUSALA to cut of Road 12 that connects LAHTI and KOUVOLA. For us that means that most likely we have parts of a Battalion Tactical Group (BTG) heading for the bridges over LINTUKYMI, heading towards JAALA. At this time there is no reports of enemy activity in the AO at all except the BMP-2 platoon down south but our S2 expect the enemy to have reached atleast the small river running SOUTH connnecting SONNANJÄRVI and LINTUKYMI with advance guard or recce forces and we can expect Motorised Companys following them close behind. b) Own: Our small combat team is what Bn commander could scratch together this morning after the heavy losses we been taking since the war begun and we are the only combat forces between the enemy and JAALA where the Bn HQ are established right now. Right now our Combat team consist of: 2 x Tank platoons (x4) 2 x CV9030 platoons (x4) 1 x Eng Section (x2) 2x6 155mm Battery firing HE ICM SMOKE (Off map) 2) MISSION: Advance best speed to TOLSKANVUORI area and DESTROY the TWO BRIDGES crossing the river LINTUKYMI at GR798676 IOT delay the enemys advance west. Thereafter withdraw back to JAALA for new tasking. (Move to EXFIL area). 3) EXECUTION: Intent: Get to the bridges, even if it means fighting our way through light opposition. Blow up the bridges. Pull back to Jaala. If situation allows, give the russians a bloody nose before pulling back. End state: Our combat team exfiled to EXFIL area, bridges blown and own forces 75% strenght and ready for further tasking after stocking up ammo and fuel at Jaala. 4) SERVICE SUPPORT Due to heavy air attacks by the Russian air force we do not have any logistics with us more then a recovery vehicle and a ambulance. We are fully combat loaded and that will have to do until we get back to Jaala and can restock from logistics unit there. 5) COMMAND AND SIGNALS: Per Kanium SOP: A66 = CO A65 = XO P1 = FO A1-A2 = tank platoons A3-A4 = Mech platoons A5 = CSS platoon E1 = Engineers 6) ANNEX Mobility: Bridges with limitations have been marked on map with MLC. Bridges with no restriction have nothing marked on them. 7) GAME DETAILS To detonate the bridge you first need to have ENG E1 in the grey area marked "EngArea" around the bridge for 15mins. (Simulating the bridge in peacetime was prepared for demolition so only demolitions and connectors have to be placed) and then hit trigger 1 = "Blow the bridges" to blow it up.

Conditions: Mid-day, autumn, light rain - poor visibility. Forces (new OOB): Leopard Co+ (not in full strenght) 2 x Command vehicles (1 x TNK, 1 x CV90/30FI) 2 x Tank platoon (Leopard 2A4) 2 x PzJaeger Platoon (CV90/30FI) 2 x Biber, 2 x WISENT AEV, 2 x Fuchs ENG 1 x Batt. 2S1 (6 Tubes) + FO Reserve: 1 x Tank platoon 1 x PzJaeger Platoon NOTES: -EYE has found a suitable river crossing spot for you if the bridges are destroyed or mined. The spot is marked on your map! If you need to cross the river with the pioneers, use TRIGGER 2 to lay smoke screen to cover the crossing! -Remember to report when you have reached the objectives (TRIGGER 4 and 5) and TF CO can coordinate his attack accordingly! Mission score is based on enemy casualties and objectives taken Mech TF CO's orders to you: 1. SITUATION ENEMY: Enemy 63rd Mech Rifle Regiment is attacking south-west via the Highway 6. Its forward units are already in battle with our InfBn107. The Bn should be able to hold out for one more day - but then a breakthrough is possible. The regiment has covered its left flank with quite strong detachment (we believe around 2 companies of Mech Infantry + possible tank detachments, possible guarding the whole Division's flank!). The detachment has already conducted recon by fire against our Jäger Bn 101 suffering minor casualties. FRIENDLY: Jäger Bn has moved in to block the enemy flank guard units from advancing further west. 1. MechTF has moved to the area and has suffered casualtied from enemy air attacks. 1st Co+ (ELVIS - you!) has reached R15 (Ref Point 15) and is ready to attack north. Armoured Recce platoon (EYE) is already in the objective area giving out info on the enemy. MISSION: 1st MechTF attacks north towards Highway 6 and destroys enemy flank guard units. Attack must begin ASAP. After defeating the flank guards the TF will attack the Regiments flank to release the pressure on InfBn107 and to allow further counter-attacks by other friendly forces. Commander's mission to subordinates (in the area): 1st Co (ELVIS): Attack to R19 - secure the area and be prepared to continue north towards R31. Destroy any resistance you run into - enemy is believed to have ~platoon size "doorbell" force in the village. After reaching R19 Mech Inf-Platoon (ARROW) will move in and hold the area while you continue the attack.

  7. KANIUM FRIDAY 29TH OF DEC 1700 UTC "OPERATION LION" BY Swordsmandk also known as "Kanium New Years special (Long scenario 4-6 hours)" Where: Kanium TS : teamspeak3.i3d.net:10077 Early start 1700 UTC Everybody is welcome Long scen about 3-6 hours (Early starting time) Merry Christmas & a Happy new year Backstorie: 24/12 1979 Soviet troops invaded Afghanistan July 1980 A number of countries including the USA boycotted the summer Olympics held in Moscow in protest at the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. Other countries including Great Britain participated under the Olympic flag rather than their national flag 13/12 1980 Martial law was declared to crush the Solidarity movement June 1982 During a summit in Geneva Reagan proposed Strategic Arms Reduction Talks Two days after Leonid Brezhnev's death, on 12 November 1982, Andropov was elected General Secretary of the CPSU, the first former head of the KGB to become General Secretary. His appointment was received in the West with apprehension, in view of his roles in the KGB and in Hungary. Andropov attempted to improve the economy by raising management effectiveness without changing the principles of socialist economy. In contrast to Brezhnev's policy of avoiding conflicts and dismissals, he began to fight violations of party, state and labour discipline, which led to significant personnel changes. In foreign policy, the war continued in Afghanistan. Andropov's rule was also marked by deterioration of relations with the United States. U.S. plans to deploy Pershing missiles in Western Europe in response to the Soviet SS-20 missiles were contentious. On 8 March 1983, during Andropov's reign as General Secretary, U.S. President Ronald Reagan labeled the Soviet Union an "evil empire". The same month, on 23 March, Reagan announced the Strategic Defense Initiative. Reagan claimed this research program into ballistic missile defense would be "consistent with our obligations under the ABM Treaty". However, Andropov was dismissive of this claim, and said that "It is time they stopped searching for the best ways of unleashing nuclear war. Engaging in this is not just irresponsible. It is insane". Meanwhile, Soviet-U.S. arms control talks on intermediate-range nuclear weapons in Europe were suspended by the Soviet Union in November 1983 and by the end of the year, the Soviets had broken off all arms control negotiations. Cold War tensions were exacerbated by Soviet fighters downing a civilian jet liner, Korean Air Flight KAL-007, which carried 269 passengers and crew, including a congressman from Georgia, Larry McDonald. KAL 007 had strayed over the Soviet Union on 1 September 1983 on its way from Anchorage, Alaska. In February 1983, Andropov suffered total renal failure. In August 1983, he entered the Central Clinical Hospital in western Moscow on a permanent basis. In late January 1984 Andropov's health deteriorated sharply and due to growing toxicity in his blood, he had periods of failing consciousness. He died on 9 February 1984 at 16:50 in his hospital room at age 69. Few of the top Soviet leaders, not even all the Politburo members, learned of his death on that day. In a move that astounded the west, then Konstantin Chernenko, who was appointed to be the next General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, was toppled in a bloodless coup by Communist hardliners backed by the military, and led by Minister of Defence of the Soviet Union Dmitriy Ustinov. Ustinov has become acting General Secretary, thus coalescing all power in one person. The Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact has since tightened in all reform efforts, and has in fact gone back to the Hardline Brezhnev stance. Soviet defence expenditures and exercise cycles have been sharply increased, leading to widespread fear in the West and NATO. NATO protests have not been heard in the east, where military forces have increased their readiness. It is now August 1984, and the tensions are higher than ever with massive Soviet exercise’s along the eastern and northern fronts of NATO. The new American movie “Red Dawn” that have just premiered, paints a controversial and scary picture of a USA invaded by the Soviet Union but mirrors big and growing fears of a very real possibility of an impending Soviet attack. The fact of the matter is that the soviet forces outnumber NATO forces in every aspect. Moreover then Peace movements, some of which are infiltrated by Traitors – what Lenin called Useful Idiots - and others which are just fronts for KGB and GRU, hinder every move that NATO tries to make in addressing the inequality. This includes Nuclear Weapons where Soviet Weapons somehow is not to be as big a problem as NATO´s. Protests and rallies have increased in both number and scope in the west as Left-wing groups; in cooperation with anti-nuclear groups actively seek to restrict both NATO and USA. USA under the leadership of Ronald Reagan, a long-time advocate of rollback, has taken a more aggressive approach to dealings with the Soviets and believes that détente is misguided and peaceful coexistence. NATO as well as USA have raised their military alert levels in response to a much more belligerent Soviet, and increases in Soviet military activity. However despite effort then the balance of power is still very much in favor of the Warsaw Pact. In the last weeks numerous sources have confirmed that Warsaw Pact forces are conducting wide-scale exercises and signal traffic has reached a fever-pitch. As a consequence of this NATO has recalled reserves and placed their forces on full military alert. The same has been done in the Neutral Countries in Europe. It would seem that this has not been sufficient to deter what everybody in the west has feared for decades: Yesterday Warsaw Pact forces attacked at several places, primarily and initially against West Germany. NATO has evoked Article V, and thus is now formally at War. World War 3 has started, and the hammer has already struck hard. North of Regensburg in Southern Germany, a German unit PZG BTN 104 (Mixed), has been deployed. Its mission is similar to many of the others along the long front: fight a delaying battle and hold the attackers as long as possible to enable reinforcements to arrive and consolidate. A full Reforger operation is starting up, but time is critical. And so is not getting tied up in a static defense, every man and vehicle counts, because the battle will not be over anytime soon. The units to the north and south are under heavy attack and are forced back, and the BG is thus forced to defend on three sides as they fight their way back. Initial Briefing (Final will arrive no later then saturday 23rd of DEC) SITUATION Enemy 1. Panzer Grenadier Division (DDR) is attacking our BDE. We have identified armor formations with T72 and T55 tanks along with a variety of mixed BMP and BTR. These units is consistent with a reinforced PzG Division. Enemy units is heavily supported by the division and will have mine clearence and bridging capability. Friendly Our Panzer BTN (Mixed) task is flanksecurity and delay if needed, along Route Yellow, against what has been identified as an ENY Panzer Grenadier Regiment(mixed) with Armor support from their Division. If they can push us towards River Weber then BDE Southern flank will be at risk. Our BTN is split into 2 BG (Tiger and Lion) with our BG delaying along route Yellow and our sister BG along route purple to our South East. Rest of BTN will be held as reserve and supply units will be ready to support against ENY main effort. We have been given additional support from BDE that will aide us along the route until we have reached Oldsdorff. Attachments and Detachments - 1x PLT of HVY Recon along with 1 Section of Luchs has been assigned to each BG. - 1x BTY of M109 with logistic support (You are not allowed to be more than 10km behind you BTN lead units should the need for fire across the BDE arise.) - 1x Biber Section (on Trigger) - Logistic/Aid support from BDE. These are called AidSt.1-3 and will be able to repair or replace any damage within 5 minutes in the zone. (You can only repair when the repair vehicles are both in the zone and BDE will withdraw them as the ENY approaches) Commander’s Evaluation MISSION BG Tiger is to provide flank security along route Yellow and Delay ENY forces advancing along the DOA Yellow. Preserve your combat strenght and DO NOT allow yourself to be tied down in battle. BPT cross to West side of Weber should ENY brake through BDE.

Kanium Cmb Tm was stationed in LAnsdowne and have managed to delay the eny, but with cost of multiple issues in the vehicles. Currently NATO are deploying two(2) Div IVO TORONTO that will be combat ready in the theatre within 2 days, so KANIUM still need to hold the line. Nato have succeeded in destroying the bridges crossing GANANOQUE and thereby denying Eny to transfer further tanks. The NATO BG, wherein KANIUM apply, have planned to stop eny in EA BLUE, and then push the eny back to the RIVER GANANOQUE. South Kanium is a digged in a national guard infantery force without mobility capabilities blocking eny advance with heavy improvisional and unregistred obstacles, so no movement allowed there. c) Attachments and detachments: Standard KANIUM 2) MISSION: KANIUM shall stop eny advance in EA BLUE and OO advance and clear the area upto RIVER GANANOQUE iot set conditions for NATO's further advance and liberation of GRAYLAND. 3) EXECUTION: Intent: Upto commander a) Concept of Operation: i) Maneuver: ii) Fires: iii) Additional assets: Minefields, fortifications available b) Tasks to Maneuver units: c) Tasks to Combat Support Units: Minefields, d) COORDINATING INSTRUCTIONS: 5) COMMAND AND SIGNALS: PLAY RULES. 1. Movement east of line 11 not allowed until after 60 minutes play - to allow RED to launch the attack. 2. Red to be played by 2-3 players.

Though Repair facility in Kingston base (SW the map) is available if you rotate units there. So either rotate or divide observe/fire tasks within platoons. Sorry to add this complication, but sure it will be handled someway..
