As always open to all










a.Time: 081400ZNOV2018
b.Terrain: Wooded and hilly with steep ridge lines interspersed with small hamlets.  Armd manoeuver is good in the centre of the AO, but is susceptible to direct FIRES from hull down positions from the east.  Major water obstacles west and centre along 05 northing.  South of AO, rolling hills give way to wooded areas ideal for ambush and water obstacles to east ensure manoeuver channeled.  Good LOC north-south and east-west offer rapid movement  B2221  major LOC for area running east.
c.Weather: Clear Skies 5% probability of participation.  Visibility 3400km >.  No impact on sensor capabilities.
d.Vital Ground. Town of MACIUICIA (OBJ ODIN) controls movement south. 
e.Key Terrain. B2221 major LOC east offering raid means for Russian reinforcement.  Village of EZAICIAI key cross roads of LOC from north to east and south.
f.General Situation  JEF is poised to Attack EAST of KLAIPEDA, with the intent of  penetrating the Russian MDA ITO allow FoF to EXPLOIT and PENETRATE Russian Depth.  This is a limited operation designed to push Russian forces S and E opening up NATO resupply from the port of KLAIPEDA as well as strategically threatening Russian forces S of KLAIPEDA and making a show of force in the direction of Kaliningrad.  
g.Situation Enemy Forces:
1.Russian forces have transited to HASTY DEFENCE and are currently re-organising and re-equipping.  It is likely there is only a limited obstacle belt protecting defensive positions.  
2.Disposition/Composition: Russian force is mixed due to operational losses and logistic issues. Likely comprise of a BTN(-) sized mechanized force, BMP-2/3, BTR-80 and T-72/80 as well as limited number of dismounted infantry including ATGM teams. 
h.Situation Friendly Forces. 
1.JEFCOM intent is to STRIKE & DESTROY RUSSIAN forces within boundaries in order that FoF can PENETRATE Russian DEPTH.  TF-32 is deployed on LD VALKYRIE and is poised to Attack. NATO AIRCOM are confident they can temporarily attain LOCAL Air superiority and NATO MLRS Btys will support TF-32 Attack.  To the west, elements of the Nordic Battlegroup and Danish Division, and to the east, the Combined Ad Hoc battlegroup of Baltic States and NATO forces will also Attack to FIX Russian forces within their respective AOs and limit reinforcement.  
2.Most civilians if not all in AO have left, thus it is highly likely that any civilians encountered may be Russian supported insurgents. ROE Card 6A is extant and civilians can be engaged if threat to life is identified.

A Readers/players readlist


This Campaign relies heavily on a narrative, and probably more than is the norm. For those who want to experience everything in the proper and correct order, then this is the structure:


1. Prologue

2. Background Scenario 1

3. Orders Scenario 1

4. Scenario Session

5. Intermission 1 with AAR

6. Background Scenario 2

3. Orders Scenario 2

4. Scenario Session

5. Intermission 2 with AAR



It will be finished with an Epilogue 


I strongly recommend all to read the PDF - as any internetpage generally is a poor medium for textediting.


I hope you will find this as fun as I and we had making it.

Looks danish - the man to ask would seem to be dpabrams 


Also I have made some slight adjustments in manning. We still have seats in all weapon platform platforms

I am somewhat confused on the 2A5A1DK? This unit is also listed as a LEO 2A5DK2 elsewhere in the pdf and pictured as this unit

Thank you very much for the game yesterday. Was very interesting!!

Sorry I could not stay for the debriefing, had to wake up very early and it was getting late.


Really good leadership and comms.


Thanks to DBoy to allow us to ride in some of his vehicles when we had ours in repair.


My only comments about yesterday was that it was probably a little bit too ambitious to cover all this terrain with the  small number of units we had and securing not only one but 3 objectives. Watching the AAR, you can see we had a lot of enemies in our rearguard because we had not the time or resources  to secure the zone. This could have been a little bit dangerous if the enemy would have exploited it properly.

The Cv-9035/DK is an awesome vehicle but takes ages to reload and the tempo of this operation specially on the last part of it did not allow for much reloading so in some case we were facing the enemy very low on ready ammo.


Said this I had great time and I am looking for the next one of this fantastic campaign.
