MECH BG Attack

2x TNK PLT, 2x MECH PLT, 2x RECCE SEC + 1x TNK PLT in reserve
Mission will end when when A66 or OPFOR thinks its time to end.
Finland has been attacked again by Russia in a move that is expected to be a broader move to secure the Russian northern Flank, in preparation of a move to attack NATO. Finnish forces have inflicted heavy losses upon the enemy and Finland has fully activated their Wartime military ressources and forces. They are however under considerable presure from Russian and Byelorussian forces.
United States has therefore after dialogue with the beleaguered Finns chosen to assist as a precursor to initiating a full REFORGER style rearming operation of Europe. For now their forces are limited but locally strong.
a) Enemy:
RUSSIAN ARM and MECH BAT (-) with TNK support has attacked town of TIRWA and NISSILANTIE and taken control of the surrounding area. They have been seen preparing defensive positions, but from INTEL then it is doubtful if they have had time to construct major obstacles and minefields.
ENY is expected to begin probing further NORTH at any moment. Expect ENY recon movement.
Units sighted match that of a second tier Mech BTN with T72+, BMP1+ and other tracked and wheeled vehicles including BRDMs. It is suspected they have been assigned extra ATGM teams, as well as a considerable amount of artillery.
Moreover INTEL fears that the Russian army is bringing up more modern forces and reinforcements as we speak from the south, while they solidify their defences oriented to the north.
However due to local Air Superiority, we do NOT expect neither fixed nor rotary wing ENY airplanes.
 b) Own:
You are part of a US Mech BTN (-) BG that has been tasked with counter attack in this sector. We have been hit hard and do not have the forces we would have wished at our disposal.
Road 24 is being secured by the remainder of our BG to our west, to our east the ENY seems to be fixed further south and Finnish forces have established a defensive line.
It is CO BTN intent to launch a counter attack before ENY gets a firm foothold and is able to bring in even more reinforcements. We have 1 PLT of 1A2 SEP TNK (A3)  in reserves but to be used only if neccesary.
You have been assigned 2 x Batt of 6 x tubes 155 mm howitzers with HE and SMOKE rounds, due to logistic challenges no other ordnance available.
Mech INF is armed with Javelin.
Each section of RECON has one sniper team and one FO team. 
 c) Attachments and detachments:
 - 2x TNK PLT
 - 2x MECH PLT
 - 1x CSS PLT
 - 1 x TNK PLT (In reserve)
It is CMDR intent to attack  SOUTH from Bridge 1 (B1) along R1337 towards Bridge 4 (B4) and secure TIRWA and NISSILANTIE. Intel indicates no HVY ENY force are north of PL NOVEMBER yet. However expect ENY resistance to consolidate and stiffen immediately as you move South from PL NOVEMBER.
Stay within your marked boundaries as anything outisde will be targeted by OWN artillery, MLRS as well as fixed-wing and rotary airplanes.
  1) Attack along R1337 and;
  2) Take OBJ GOLD
  3) Take OBJ SILVER

I can do CO in principle...but seeing that terrain, this mission will need to have MechInf in the main effort.

So I'm reluctant to vacate one of the few MechInf posts. 


Thank you for the good offer, which I will respectfully take you up on:


I have slightly reshuffled so all Mechinf platoons are manned. 


We still need at least one person to man RECON R2, but aside from that it should be functional now
