KANIUM SUNDAY 17TH OF JUN 1800 GMT - "11th ACR Mission 1 Delay at Bad Hersfeld" BY Sworsmandk 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 Excerpts of the battalion commander's orders for... 1) SITUATION: a) Enemy: In the last two hours we have been under heavy attack from 39th Guards Motor Rifle Division. As expected we are being forced back towards Bad Hersfeld and our minefields have been breached north of Bebra. Enemy units have been hit hard by both air attacks and our rotary assets. It is assesed that some units have been pulled out of actions already and second echelon forces have been deployed. Remaining MRR regiments we believe is at less than 75% combat streght left. Enemy appears to have three Course of Actions (COA) and looks to be focusing on two of them. Main effort (COA-1) from Herlefhausen south-west via Highway 4 and the second effort (COA-2) from Lüderbach and Ringbach south-west Highway 27. Both with main objective being Bad Hersfeld. COA-3 appears to be a probe going west/south-west along Landstrasse 3336. Enemy main effort (COA-1) appears to be along Highway 4 with 120th Guards MRR (motor rifle regiment), 117th Guards MRR, leading the way. Backing them up is the 15th Guards Tank Regiment. Enemy secondary effort (COA-2) is via Highway 27 with what we believe is 11th recon battalion leading and with 172nd Guards MRR following close behind. We have reason to believe that 80th Tank regiment is split between COA-1 and COA-2. The 3rd MTR BTN of the 172nd is reported undergoing refueling and rearming and will not be available to support their attack. Enemy is focusing main rotary effort on COA-1. Units identified 39th Helicoptor Squadron has been in action in that area. Enemy air forces is still a threat so air warning: yellow. b) Own: 3/11th is at war. We have been in the fight for several hours now and have giving ground only when forced to. Lima and Mike Troop have been fighting a delay from Lüderbach since this morning with support from 4th Squadron(Air). They are pressed hard and need to resupply and rearm soon. - India Troop (INVADER)(YOU!)(90% strenght)) is setting up for a delay in the valley north of Bad Hersfeld covering COA-2. - Kilo Troop (KILLER )(90% strenght) is setting up in the valley North-East of Bad Hersfeld covering COA-1. - Lima Troop (LEADHORSE) (60% strenght) is going through Bad Hersfeld and heading for the Squadrons Assembly and resupply area. - Mike Troop (MAULER) (50% strenght) is going through Bad Hersfeld and heading for the Squadrons Assembly and resupply area. It is CO 3/11th (BANDIT) intension to fight a delaying action in COA-1 and COA-2 delaying enemy forces for enough time to secure that Lima and Mike troop get the necessary time to rearm and get reinforcements to the area.

You will have entire 3/11th artillery assets available (2x4 M109s). 4th Squadron(Air) is resupplying and will have a flight ready within 30 minutes to provide support. To our left we have a german Jäger Coy and to the right 1/11th ACR.

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.

ALTHAUSEN is not controlled by the Soviets and we are prohibited by the Germans from entering or conducting FIRES into its location. PENELOPE is occuppied by a Soviet Armoured MR Coy+. CDT will strike and SECURE PENELOPE, but it is wel ldefended. DO NOT become decisively engaged with PENELOPE. 5. General Situation.
