Operation Icepick
24th of March 2020
SB Mission by Nike-Ajax
I. Situation
0630 Local Time - dawn is just breaking
Clear Skies with no chance of rain, 10 degrees Centigrade and LOS 3500 Km
In light of an direct attack on one of our allies in NATO, Article 5 of the NATO Charter has been evoked. And following that then NATO is now formally at war. As the spearhead in this Area of Operations, than a Spanish Battlegroup has been assembled and deployed in theater. Our Taskforce - Taskforce Tigre - is part of this Battlegroup, and have been assembled to clear the Enemy to our North. We are on our allied Nation´s soil, but all their citizens have either been evacuated, killed in battle with the invaders or have been killed by the invaders since.

The word from our Allied in light of this is, to quote: "Show no restraint and use maximum effort"
We have local air superiority, but are limited to strike planes.
Enemy Forces.
The Enemy Land Forces have roughly a 2 Companies of combat power defending the area, with at least one full tank company (Leopard 2A4) and one company of mechanized infantry (BMP-2´s). These are augmented with dismounted ENY infantry, that are expected to have access to MILANs and M72A4´s and possibly BGM-71 TOWs.
As the ENY have had a limited time to prepare, then we do not expect major Obstacles or minefields, but confidence about that is low - if encountered, then bypass. Regardless of this and given the intel then we do expect them to be entrenched and in a combat stance.
From SIGINT we know that the ENY have access to Artillery in substantial but unknow amounts.
Friendly Forces.
We have other NATO Forces to our EAST and WEST that will push forward and support our attack. So do NOT cross the Taskforce boundaries reference Map trace, to avoid risk of Friendly Fire - this includes the UAV.
Our Taskforce consists of 3 x tank platoons of Leopardo 2E as well as 2 x mechanized infantry platoon of Pizarro, along with a tactical reserve of 1 PLT of VRCC/Centauros and a 1 PLT of BMR-600/Pandur with ERCWS (12,7 HMG).
We have also been augmented with a UAV from Golf Company, 3 x 6 tubes of 155mm howitzers and 6 x 120 mm mortars from Fox Company with its own supply truck (with the howitzers being further back, so off-map), as well as support assets from Hotel Company (repair, supply and medical).
Our dismounted infantry from A COY is equipped with light machine guns (MG3s) and Anti-Tank teams ( 2 x Spike MR & 2 x AT-4). Each MECHINF platoon in A COY thus has 4x LMG teams and 2x Anti-Tank teams plus a medicteam, and are all considered Elite.
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 Tigre attacks to destroy enemy defenders between PL HAMMER and PL ANVIL to expand the NATO controlled area head and allow friendly forces to continue offensive operations further North.
III. Execution
Concept of the Operation
Alpha Company and with 2 PLT´s from Bravo Company in tactical reserve, will continue to expand our Area of Control and clear Enemy armor, mechanized units and infantry from and around OBJ OMEGA; this will create a defence in depth for our forces and enable the remaining forces to follow up and expand our zones of control.
The Taskforce will attack from the SOUTH and towards NORTHWEST, setting an attack by fire from PL HAMMER, and use own assets to clear OBJ OMEGA.
