KANIUM SUNDAY 19th of May 1800 GMT - Cutting the Motti 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 Cutting The Motti 29' th of July 2020 SB Mission by Nike-Ajax 0. Background Älkää helvetti kämppikö puukoilla, kun teillä on uudet moottorisahat What if a war didnt start with a plan? What if instead it started with a collection of misunderstandings, mistakes and refusal to admit your mistakes? This seems to be the case in Finland. Finland has always trodden a dangerous path, trying to steer clear of issues that will lead it into another conflict with the big neighbour which they once were part of for over 100 years. Mostly they have been successfull, and after the end to the Continuation war and after they miraculously managed to live up to Stalins impossible demands to evict the German soldiers with a reduced army in the Lappland war, there have been peace. They have come close to war such as in The Note Crisis (Finnish: noottikriisi) in 1961, but have averted it while remaining and maintaining an armed neutrality. Until now. Russia under increasing internal and external pressure; made worse by the decline in oil price, an international embargo and an inability or refusal from the west to accept or even acknowledge the Russians political needs and demands, have experienced an expanding political and economic crisis. This as been aggravated by what Russia sees as a deliberate and constant international attempt to encroach upon Russian interests and support of their enemies. Or just lack of understanding for the Russian choices with regards to fighting their enemies domestic and abroad. And also also by trying to expand NATO into what Russia terms "The near abroad". Finland have wisely mostly stayed out of this and thus have rarely been the subject of Russian anger or ire. However the same cannot be said of the Baltic states including Estonia which Finland have close ties to. In fact a month ago Finnish soldiers were on an exercise in Estonia, when a skirmish erupted on the eastern border between Russian Border guards and the Estonian army. Accounts differ wildly as to how it started, but what is know is that the battle probably unplanned, unscheduled and without any clear goal broke the Estonian defenders. And that the Russian forces followed further into Estonia, for lack of better explanation then much like a Cat would follow a mouse because its in its nature. Or like a kid would follow another kid in a schoolyard after having had a fight which wasnt finished. This however brought them closer to the Finnish contingent, whose CO relying on his standing orders chose to arm his unit while trying to get orders from his HQ. Orders that through confusion and mistakes werent forwarded up the chain of command. The Russian CO in the meantime did much the same and sadly for many of the same reasons with the same lack of results. So like two blinded boxers the units came into contact with each other and then clashed. This quickly escalated as both sides screamed for reinforcements and support, and by the time the respective political and military leaders managed to seperate the forces dozens were dead and hundreds wound including many locals. Then came the blaming game, which resolved nothing. This was made more difficult by NATO and EU going along their own tangents and moving to their own agendas. But as Russia strenghtened their military presence along th Finnish border, then prudence forced Finland to do the same. A week ago someone threw a lit match into the powederkeg, as a bomb blew up a Russian borderpost. Finland denied any and all involvement and denounced it as terrorism and offered to help find the criminals who did it. This however did not ease tensions and two days after that an artillery duel started across the border. This set events into motions as Russian forces crossed the border at several places. The war that wasnt declared or planned is now in motion. I. Situation Time 1100 Local Time Weather Clear sky with no chance of rain, 15 degrees Centigrade and LOS 3000 Km. General. We are at war, allthough it hasnt been formally declared yet. Due to the fact that this war seemed to start as a collection on coincidences and unplanned events, then the enemy - or for that matter ourselves as well - arent fully prepared. The Enemy has thrust a few miles into our territory and in our AO has set up a temporary airport for their rotary wing planes to our North. Their airport isnt big enough to handle fixed wing planes, so it is expected that they will soon thrust South to take the airport we are currently in control of. Or likely primarily also to deny us its use. The terrain is fairly closed, but not as closed as we would have liked. Still it is the estimate of HQ that it just might - combined with the unprepared stance of the ENY - might be possible to do in smaller scale what our great-grandfathers did in the Winter Wra. Namely to hit them while they are enroute to deploy. It is uncertain which route they will follow, so therefore 2 platoons from the Utti Jaeger Regiment (Finnish: Utin Jääkärirykmentti, (UTJR)), have created a number of Observation Posts to our North so we and you hopefully can get real-time Intel on how the ENY deploys and where. Their orders in true Recon fashion is to avoid combat at all costs: their mission is to use their eyes and ears, and not their trigger fingers. Also we have allocated an UAV for your use. But for the same reason that you can get no fixed- or rotary wing support, then you cant push it too far north North as the ENY both enjoy local air superiority AND have formidable AA capabilities to the north. We have plotted our best estimate based on SIGINT and HUMINT, where their coverage ends. 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. In short we are hoping that you will be able to create one or two Mottis and Defeat the enemy in Detail. From the size and composition of the Enemy then we expect that he will use two routes at most for his attack on the Airport, with an additional portion of his forces set aside for reinforcements/QRF. For those of you too young to remember the lessons of the Winter War, then Motti is Finnish military slang for a totally encircled enemy unit. The tactic of encircling it is called motitus, literally meaning the formation of an isolated block or "motti", but in effect meaning an entrapment or envelopment. The word means "mug" in many Finnish dialects; an alternate translation refers to a cubic meter of firewood, a relatively small area in which an encircled enemy could be "cut down" like trees. 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 old equipment and reservists, then the simple math is that the enemy is bigger, stronger and has far more ressources than us. So we need to be smart and flexible. We expect the ENY to have far less flexibility in their Command and Control structure, which is another reason the Motti tactic hopefully will work. Like our forefathers we need to know when to hit, when to fall back and when to shift positions. Remember the words of the great American General Patton: “No dumb bastard ever won a war by going out and dying for his country. He won it by making some other dumb bastard die for his country.” Our Taskforce SISU, 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. But our primary task is to deny the ENY the use of the airport to the South, and inflict the maximum damage possible to him in the process. All this while remaing combat effective for the next battle. If it turns out that the chance shows it self, then you are free to use your own initiative to push further north as long as it doesnt endanger your other tasks. From INTEL, then it appears that the Enemy have no prepared defences in the north 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 South, as well as a COY(+) sized QRF to support where needed. Taskforce SISU have been assembled to defend OBJ PUUKO and destroy the Enemy to our North. We on our Finnish soil, however the situation is dire. Thus 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. Enemy Forces. The Enemy to our overall front is a Battalion sized(+) combined Russian Force. From Intel, then this seems to be at least two full combined and reinforced Companies with T72B1, BMP-2, BTR-80 and with additional support and recon troops, and with further reinforcements or QRF - estimated to be at least another combined and reinforced COY of MECHINF and TNKS. Added to which is a light screening force around the ENY forward HQ/Airbase and ENY AA units spread out in the northern AO. 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. We expect the ENY to reinforce from the North (Reference Maptrace), when you hit them. We have no ETA on the ENY reinforcements/QRF from the North but from our observations would expect that they are in a 15 minute alertpattern, so you have some time before they arrive. Confidence about that is MEDIUM. In line with the previous including their OOB, then we expect them to use two routes and moving by road until they get closer to our airport, which is their obvious OBJ, before they switch into a Combat stance and formation. This is in part due to the terrain which has a number of lakes, swamps and waterways. HQ have promised that other opearations will deny the ENY of any further reinforcements from the North beyond what is described above. Confindence 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. Friendly Forces. We have no local air superiority, and therefore we have no strike planes nor rotary wing support. This is primarily due to strong local Air defence, but also stronger ENY airforces than ours in this AO. We have NO other friendly forces in our immediate vicinity, with the next line of defence - IF we fail and fall - further West. Our Taskforce consists of 3 x tank platoons of Leopard 2A6 as well as 2 x mechanized infantry platoon of CV90/30-FI, along with a tactical reserve of 1 PLT of Leopard 2A6 and a 1 PLT of CV90/30-FI. We also have 4 x 6 Tubes of 155mm SP howitzers, which have a full range of rounds including Four (4) FASCAM missions (self-destruct 30 mins) and 2 x 6 x 120 mm SP mortars with their own supply trucks (with the howitzers being further back, so off-map), as well as support assets from HQ Company (repair, 2 x supply and medical). We have no Air due to heavy presence of ENY AA and AAA in AO, but we do have an UAV (P-4). But do not push the UAV too far north or it will surely be shot down (Reference Map trace) Our dismounted infantry from B 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 4 x M72A4 and riflegrenades plus a medicteam, and are all considered Elite. Our engineers have readied charges to give you four (4) Abatis to be placed by your command. 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 SISU is to destroy enemy defenders between PL YKSI and PL KAKSI, and to defend OBJ PUUKO. And to prepare to repulse ENY Counterattacks/QRF from North. III. Execution Concept of the Operation: Taskforce SISU with 2 PLTs in tactical reserve, will attack from the SOUTH and towards NORTH, setting an attack by fire from PL YKSI towards PL KAKSI, and try to catch and isolate the ENY while they are out of formation and position. They have 4 FASCAM missions to assist in this goal. They will also use own assets to defend OBJ PUUKO from the Enemy, including the sizeable Artillery assets at its command. 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. Do not risk the integrity of your command by attacking the Enemy forward HQ and temporary airbase to the North 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 OBJ PUUKO. Key Tasks 1. Attack from vicinity PL YKSI towards OBJ KAKSI destroying the ENY as you go. 2. Defend OBJ PUUKO and repulsing ENY QRF. 3. If possible and sensible exploit any opportunities including attacking the ENY HQ and forward Airbase to the North. End State Friendly Friendly forces postured on or in vicinity of PL KAKSI; consolidated and prepared and able to continue operations towards the SOUTH. Enemy Enemy forces defeated or destroyed between PL YKSI and PL KAKSI, unable to support Enemy forces in the Southern part of the AO.

KANIUM SUNDAY 5th OF May 1800 GMT - Righteous Retribution 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. IMPORTANT NOTICE II: No political BS thank you. Without breaking immersion, then this is a work of fiction... 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 Righteous Retribution 1'st of June 2020 SB Mission by Nike-Ajax 0. Background Since 1979 an undeclared and studiously ignored state of strife if not war has existed between the Shia muslims led informally by Iran and the Sunni muslims led by Saudi Arabia. The war between Iran and Iraq was in many ways a part of this conflict, but it neither stopped with the end of that war nor died with Saddam Hussein. Rather it has accelerated and found new ways of expressing itself, including using the oilprice as a way to hurt the other part. No one has wanted to acknowledge this new Cold War. But that is of little consolation to the peoples of Yemen, Syria and other places where the two parties have clashed. Nor does anyone really want to focus on the fact that Syria de facto is nothing more than a puppet for the regime in Teheran. Worse - for the opposing side - is the fact that Iraq is a country with a majority of Shia muslims, that for decades was ruled or oppressed by a minority Sunni moslem group under the leadership of Saddam Hussein. With his departure then Iraq have in the last year inevitably moved closer and closer to Iran and 3 months ago, chose to take the full step and together with Syria pronounce the creation of the Greater Islamic Republic which is an amalgation of the three countries. Which have created a very strong country that are far stronger and more populous than any of its neighbours, with even Israel threatened by its combined armies. This unsurprisingly have sent shockwaves not just through the middle east specifically, but the world in general. Saudi Arabia feeling that their very existence is in dire danger, have tried to solidify both their armed forces as well as their alliances. Saudi Arabia however is still faced with the problems that have challenged them for decades: their population is far smaller than the GIR and their army much weaker and smaller. A month ago a wave of terrorists attack rocked the nation of Kuwait culminating in the shocking murder of the ruling Emir of Kuwait along with most of his family: this crime together with the others threw Kuwait into chaos. Kuwait has for many years been the most democratic, religiously accepting and open Arab nation in the Gulf Region and these events were therefore doubly shocking. Several terrorist organizations claimed rsponsibility, without any proof being put forward. Into this chaos stepped the diplomats of the GIR. Information and opinions differ on what happened next, but the results were clear: no matter if Kuwait was being pressured, threatened, bribed or enticed then the outcome was not in any dispute: 14 days ago Kuwait formally joined the GIR, to the great surprise not only of the world but also to many of its Sunni-majority and christian minority citizens. Some of the Kuwaiti units refused to acknowledge the political decision and made their way south to Saudiarabia, as they saw this as a putsch. From Israel over Saudiarabia and to Oman and more, this rang any and all alarm bells not already rung. And countries outside the middleeast and the Gulf were alarmed as well. USA, supported by Saudiarabia among others, called for immediate investigations into the Kuwait situation as well as a strong and robust boycot and trade embargo. As this was blocked in the UN by China and Russia, then an American and Saudi led coalition chose to implement this unilaterally last week. The GIR declared this to be unlawful and Casus Belli and somewhat surprisingly gave the opposing coalition 72 hours to rescind it, which didnt happen. To the very great surprise of most of the world the morning after the dealine ran out the GIR went on the offense. They chose limited but ultimately achievable goals, of which the biggest issue was the closing of the Strait of Hormuz, and perhaps the biggest PR move was the taking of the town of Khafji in the North of Saudiarabia after a short but fierce battle. And then the GIR hunkered down and formally sought diplmatic solutions, including a wish to reopen the Strait of Hormuz, making the coalitions position even more difficult. In the meantime Intel indicates that the town of Khafji have been emptied. The fate of the Saudi inhabitants are unknown, but Intel seems dire. The formal and official position of the Coalition is that this is not a war about religion. But rather a move against aggression and a belligerent nation with Imperial ambitions. I. Situation Time 0545 Local Time - just before dawn. Weather Clear sky with no chance of rain, 35 degrees Centigrade and LOS 3600 Km and no chance of precipitation. General. We are at de facto at war, but the enemy has us at a disadvantage. Firstly we do not have an UN resolution to back us up, but far more troubling than this, then we have nowhere near the forces in general and in the AO in particular that we used to win over an inferior enemy in 1991 and again in 2003. We are trying to build up, but the blocking of the strait of Hormuz with a combination of mines, Anti-shipping missiles and the use of directfire weapons and airplanes of the GIR, have for now meant that our progress with regards to build-up is slow. Combined with this the Iran are using all their political assets to block any action in the international political bodies including the UN and EU. Iran has formally allied and integrated with the Shia dominated Iraq, and the undeclared war that has been going on between the Sunni led by Saudi arabia vs. the Shia led by Iran since 1979, has just gone hot. In a replay of Desert Storm then the war so far has mostly been in the form of a Sitzkrieg, but a week ago Iran crossed the Saudi border and after a short but furious engagement took the city of Khafji, where they dug in. Saudiarabia has formally asked all their allies to help, including USA. We need a political victory as much if not more than we need a military one. Not only to send a message to GIR but also to bolster our Coalition and send a message to the international community. Therefore it has been decided that the Coalition will retake the town of Khafji: a move that will signal not only our resolve, and ability to strike back but also if successfull bring memories of Desert Storm and it is hoped help solidify international support for the Coalition and against the GIR. Our Taskforce Vengeance, as part of the Saudi/US/Kuwaiti Battlegroup Nemesis, have been tasked with this mission. Our forces are limited as we need to hold back potential attacks elsewhere, but its the opinion of HQ that our superior training, weapons and leadership will act as a substantial force multiplier. We have been tasked with first seizing OBJ RETRIBUTION to our East, and then defend it against Enemy counterattacks expected to come from the North and South. The Enemy have strong defences and sizeable forces to the South, but from HUMINT and SIGINT, then its expected that their orders are to hold off any attack from the South at all costs. In line with this then another Taskforce (TF PAYBACK) will make a feint towards them to force them to remain in place. Do NOT however push too far south as this is expected to run a risk of them all turning north and joining in the expected Counterattacks. Our best estimate is that you should try and stay North of Northing 13, and not seek engagement towards the South. The GIR outnumber us by a considerable margin. But on a positive side, then we are up against second rate equipment. But they are manned by veterans, their ordnance are modern and their weapons have already killed a number of Coalition soldiers, so do NOT underestimate them. Taskforce Vengeance have been assembled to seize OBJ RETRIBUTION and destroy the Enemy to our East. We expect some of the units in the rear of the enemies defenceline to our south will turn North and together with Reinforcements from the North will counterattack and try to drive us out of Khafji. Do not let them be successfull. It is the estimate of HQ that our forces are strong enough to punch through them initially, however we need to use care in how we use our ammo as we need to be able to fend off the expected ENY counterattacks We on our Saudi soil, however the Saudis are beyond enraged not just by the invasion, but also by the rumours of the fate of the inhabitants of Khafji and perhaps also by the political implications that they lost this town again to an attacker. The words from his Royal Highness were: "We expect you to make Khafji a mausoleum to the memory of our dead people. Leave no one alive and show no restraint beyond what your humanity dictates your" Thus you are cleared to use all weapons at your disposal with extreme prejudice in all of the AO, including FIRES in the Urban areas. Enemy Forces. The Enemy to our overall front is a Battalion sized(+) combined GIR Force. From Intel, then this seems to be at least two full Companies of T72B1, a propable Company of Chieftain Mk. V´s and a full company of BMP-2, with additional support and recon troops including Light Scorpion tanks, and likely further reinforcements - estimated to be at least another COY of MECHINF and possibly a Company of mixed GIR Armor that can be used in the Enemys Counterattack. The Enemy is on the defence and have constructed heavy defences to the South oriented South and Southwest, however we do not expect any Obstacles or minefields in your attack vector and direction, confidence about that is HIGH. But we do however expect them to be aggressive and in a combat stance, and some of them possibly dug in. We expect the ENY to reinforce from the North (Reference Maptrace). From when your attack strikes, then our estimated ETA on the ENY reinforcements/QRF from the North are approximately 60 minutes minutes from when they are alerted. Confidence about that is MEDIUM. We also expect them to reorient the northernmost positioned forces in the defence to the South towards you. But from INTEL would expect their SOP would be to wait for their QRF before making their move towards North. We thus anticipate a coordinated ENY counter attack from the North and South within the time frame described above. HQ have promised that other opearations will deny the ENY of any further reinforcements from the North beyond what is described above. Confindence about that is HIGH. The remaining ENY Forces to the South are planned to be attacked in a followup Operation. From SIGINT, then we know that the ENY have access to Artillery in substantial but unknown amounts. Friendly Forces. We have temporary local and limited air superiority, but are limited to 3 strike planes. This is primarily due to strong local Air defence, as the Saudis have already lost some Helicopters in the area, and we given the force correlation are unwilling to risk more at this time. We have forces to our SOUTH (Taskforce Payback) that will push forward and North and support our attack. But as this is ONLY a Feint, then they will NOT support you directly in your attack nor are they expected to attrit the ENY, but rather only seek to fix the ENY defenders in place so they will not counterattack you in full force. Our Taskforce consists of 3 x tank platoons of M1A2(SEP) Abrams as well as 2 x mechanized infantry platoon of M2A2 (ODS) Bradleys, along with a tactical reserve of 1 PLT of M1A2 (SEP) and a 1 PLT of M2A2 (ODS). We also have 4 x 6 Tubes of 155mm SP howitzers, which have a full range of rounds (except FASCAM), One (1) MLRS Strike package and 6 x 120 mm SP mortars with its own supply truck (with the howitzers being further back, so off-map), as well as support assets from HQ Company (repair, 2 x supply and medical). Our dismounted infantry from B COY is equipped with 4 x Anti-Tank teams (FGM-148 Javelin). Each MECHINF platoon in A COY thus has 4x Anti-Tank teams, the rest being issued with 3 x AT4 and riflegrenades plus a medicteam, and are all considered Elite. Rules of Engagement.

Execution Concept of the Operation: Taskforce Vengeance with 2 PLTs in tactical reserve and supported by a feint attack from the South executed by TF Payback (Reference Maptrace), will attack from the WEST and towards EAST, setting an attack by fire from PL NEMESIS towards PL VENDETTA, while trying to avoid pulling ENY forces from the South into combat if possible. Having done this they will use own assets to clear OBJ RETRIBUTION of the Enemy, and then quickly transition into a defensive posture oriented North and South to Hold the OBJ. 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. Do not risk the integrity of your command by attacking the main Enemy defenceline to the South UNLESS the TF CO is positive that this can achieved successfully and without compromising the integrity of his command.

We love playing with you all, the arranger and CO loves you even more if you sign up in advance 11th ACR Mission 1 Delay at Bad Hersfeld V. 2 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.

We love playing with you all, the arranger and CO loves you even more if you sign up in advance Apocalypse_The_East_Wind_20350807 The East Wind Day 1: 07 AUG 2035 Story: ArmA III SB Mission by Apocalypse I. Situation General. NATO forces begin their invasion of Altis with initial landings in the Northeast by 2nd Battalion, 7th Brigade, 111th Infantry Division. 2nd Battalion will land a combat team with tanks and infantry, supported by attack aviation, UAS, and direct-support artillery. Meanwhile, elements of 7th Brigade and the 21st Brigade are both offshore with 6th Fleet, preparing for additional landings in eastern and southern Altis against Altis Armed Forces (AAF). Enemy Forces. The Canton Protocol Strategic Alliance Treaty (CSAT) has roughly a Battalion of combat power defending the area, with at least two tank companies (T-100 "Varsuk", T-72B Export), one company of motorized infantry (MSE-3 "Marid" - a 6-wheeled vehicle with a 12.7mm machine gun), and one Company of Mechanized Infantry (BTR-Ks - a tracked vehicle similar to the BMP-2), supported by 152mm artillery (2S9 Sochor) and protected by ZSU-39 "Tigris" (with SAM capability). Dismounted infantry organized as 2x LMG and 2x Anti-Tank teams per platoon and are equipped with light machine guns and RPG-32s - a light guided missile that is both limited in range (1500m) and penetration (much like an updated M47 Dragon) Friendly Forces. Our Combat Team consists of 2x tank platoons as well as 1x mechanized infantry platoon; our Rhino MGS platoon is currently undergoing repairs from the invasion, but will arrive in roughly 30 minutes. We have been augmented with 1x attack helicopter and a UAV from Golf Company, 2x 155mm guns from Fox Company, as well as support assets from Hotel Company (repair/rearm, and medical). Our dismount infantry is equipped with light machine guns (M-60A4 w/ optics) and Anti-Tank missiles (Spike). Each platoon has 4x LMG teams and 4x Anti-Tank teams. II. Mission 2nd Battalion, 7th Brigade Combat Team, 111th Infantry Division attacks to destroy CSAT forces between PL NEPTUNE and PL SATURN to destabilize the CSAT-AAF alliance and enable future NATO landings across Altis. III. Execution Echo Company will clear CSAT armor and mechanized infantry from the towns of Molos and Sofia; This will create a sizeable security area surrounding Molos and enable the 2nd Battalion to continue to generate combat power. Additionally, this will enable NATO landings at Chalkeia and Poliakko that will quickly open simultaneous fronts on Altis. Commanders Intent Purpose - The purpose of this operation is to destroy the CSAT and defeat their will to fight on Altis, breaking their alliance with the Altis Armed Forces. Key Tasks 1. Clear Molos 2. Clear Sofia End State Friendly Friendly forces postured on PL SATURN; consolodated and prepared to continue operations to the south, in support of future landings Enemy Enemy forces defeated or destroyed between PL NEPTUNE and SATURN; unable to continue supporting AAF defenses on Altis. Terrain Molos and Sofia are cleared of enemy forces. Civilian Minimal collateral damage to inflicted on civilian infrastructure Risk Risk to force is extremely high - we are fighting on a narrow front, against CSAT regular forces. The correlation of forces between NATO and CSAT also creates a risk; we are fighting against three times our number of CSAT armor. We will mitigate this risky by applying a combination of UAS, attack aviation, and artillery in support of ground maneuver - the CSAT/AAF alliance is highly political. Although CSAT openly supports the alliance, they also have low tolerance for the deaths of their own in support of Altis, and may quickly evacuate the island if brought under enough pressure. Fires Fox Company has four self-propelled guns that will directly support this operations. IV. Sustainment H CO (2nd BN) will support all logistical requirements and provide the following attachments: Medical 1x Ambulance Truck Repair 1x IFV-6C ARV Supply 1x Ammunition Truck V. Command And Signal E-66 has overall mission command of this operation Designer Notes This mission follows the story of the NATO invasion of the island-nation of Altis in the game ArmA III, and is based on the Tanks DLC Showcase Scenario ("Tank Destroyers").
