Strongly suggested, if possible, that you arrive 30 - 45 mins prior for briefings, comms checks, making sure everyone has the right version of SB, etc. so we can start at H hour.

 

If you turn up part way through we will "pause" and you can join.

 

Of course, the later we start the longer it will go for.

Key:

 

Red  = Must fill

 

Blue = Should fill

 

Black = Nice to fill

 

If you all pick Black slots, people will be re-assigned to ensure that Red or a Blue ones are filled and then we'll worry about the Black ones. If you are brand spanking new then happy for you to occupy a junior call sign - but the units all need some people in them otherwise it will be unfair on the OC positions, the two "19s".

 

Lastly a note on callsigns. "19" is One Niner, not Nineteen. :)

Done. :)

 

Thanks for starting the ball rolling.

 

I think I'll do the CO / Co-ord for this.

 

Of course if someone else really wants to do it - all theirs, but experience suggests people rarely want to fill command appointments in these things.

 

We'll still need 2 OCs (to run the two sub units) but I'll help those two come up with a plan.

12A, please.

 

Connaugh

 

Con,

 

Not sure if you want Tank or ASLAV?

 

I either case both of those are blue (2nd priority) and I need to fill the Red slots first. Do you have a preferred Red slot?

 

Once all the Red slots fill, I can see if I can put you in a "12A".

Team,

 

Getting lots of nominations for Platoon Commander's :)

 

Not too many want to be Company commanders. :(

 

We need V19 and T19 filled otherwise we'll have no artillery and a bunch of Platoon Commanders wandering around like decapitated chickens.

 

My offer to CO was to Co-ord the V19 and T19's plans - I'm not devising and executing a plan for a scenario I've built. :)

Keep the posts coming.

 

Need:

 

1 x OC for the Cav.

 

2 x Fires guys (or perhaps one managing both).

 

2 x Mech Platoon commanders.

D u k e, Mirzayev,

 

Do you want a "planning" scenario file?

 

This would only be good for doing a recon with. It would let Blue look at the ground (but would not have any OPFOR units) so you could plot routes and work out times to locations, get an understanding of your unit capabilities, etc.

 

You should not make a plan file based on this as it is not the scenario file we will use on the night.
