Kanium Sunday - A bridge too hard

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So a short status:

 

Overall it looks good and well manned:

 

I expect A3 to be manned and functional as usual via UO, so consider that checked out.

A2 is fully manned so that is checked out too.

B1 is manned and functional, so checked out too.

 

What needs a little more:

B2 needs a PLT sgt

A1 needs a PLT SGT plus one more

 

And finally then I will send the finished scenario to @Mirzayev and @sjr162 later today - EDIT: done and sent

 

There is still room for more players beyond this, including people with little or no MP experience: if you want to try then you are most welcome, but please give us a heads up in advance so we can help you get started the right way.

I'm uncertain if I can make it this week. I'll take B2 PSG, but can't guarantee attendance. I'll let you know beforehand.

OPERATION CONQUEROR

 

Task Organization:

Shaping Operation 4 (SO4) A1: 4x Leopard 2A6

Decisive Operation (DO) A2: 4x Leopard 2A6

Shaping Operation 3 (SO3): A3: 4x Leopard 2A6

Shaping Operation 1 (SO1): B1: 4x Marder 1A3

Shaping Operation 2 (SO2): B2: 4x Marder 1A3

Shaping Operation 5 (SO5): Fires & Effects: P65 (1x FOV90), P1 (6x M1064), P2 (6x M1064), P3&4 (2x Supply Trucks), P5 (MLRS Strike Package), 4x Batteries of 155mm Tube Artillery, 8x CAS Sorties

Sustaining Operation (SUSOP): TF Trains: H65 (1x Marder 1A3), H1 (2x Supply Trucks, 1x Medical Evacuation Vehicle, 1x Armored Recovery Vehicle)

 

I. Situation.

 

A. Terrain. The terrain within our AO favors the defender. A mixture of forests and fields will naturally canalize and force the slowing of tempo of any attacking force. The defender can readily make use of the abundant cover and concealment afforded by the heavy vegetation, and will be able to exploit the open fields to form natural kill zones. A north-south flowing river in vicinity of (IVO) Phase Line (PL) CLAYMORE limits the travel of defending and attacking forces from west to east to bridges located IVO OBJ MARKET in the north, and OBJ GARDEN in the south.

 

B. Weather. The weather favors the defender. Light clouds with a 0% chance of rain, combined with a visual detection range of approximately 3,000 meters will enable the enemy to engage attacking forces at the maximum effective range of his weapon systems. The presence of “good weather” will limit the effectiveness of the potential technological overmatch of our thermal systems at range.

 

C. Enemy. Our enemy is estimated to be at Battalion (+) strength, with approximately three (3) companies located within our AO. Additionally, the enemy is likely to have one (1) platoon of reconnaissance assets, which will operate within the disruption zone from PL BARBIE to PL ARROW. The enemy is conducting a deliberate defense within our AO, and will employ obstacles and prepared battle positions to deny friendly forces the ability to seize terrain IVO OBJ MARKET and OBJ GARDEN. The enemy’s battle zone will be established between PL ARROW and PL CLAYMORE. The enemy is likely keeping approximately one (1) platoon of armor in reserve to reinforce OBJ MARKET or OBJ GARDEN, and to enable a counterattack. The enemy is equipped with ATGMs, and will employ them within the disruption zone and the battle zone to attrite friendly forces. Enemy composition and task/purpose is estimated as the following:

 

i. SO3: Recon Platoon (+).

Task: Disrupt; Purpose: enable the fixing of friendly forces by SO1.

Composition: 6x BRDM-2AT operating as three (3) sections.

 

ii. SO1: 1st Company.

Task: Fix; Purpose: Enable the DO to destroy via a flank attack.

Composition: 6x T-72B1s, 3x BMP-2s; expected to operate as 3x Platoons positioned north of the 265 Northing.

 

iii. DO: 2nd Company.

Task: Destroy enemy forces via a flank attack; Purpose: Prevent enemy forces from advancing WEST of PL BOW.

Composition: 6x T-72B1s, 3x BMP-2s; expected to operate as 3x Platoons positioned south of the 265 Northing.

 

iv. SO2: 3rd Company (+).

Task: Defend OBJ MARKET and OBJ GARDEN; Purpose: Prevent seizure of terrain by friendly forces; retain freedom of maneuver for follow on enemy forces.

Composition: 9x BTR-80s and 3x T-72B1s; positioned on OBJ MARKET and OBJ GARDEN with one (1) platoon of armor in reserve.

 

D. Friendly Forces. There are no adjacent units within our AO. Friendly Forces located to the NORTH and the SOUTH of our AO will remain in blocking positions to the WEST of PL BARBIE.

 

II. Mission. TF SCHMETTERLING conducts an attack to seize OBJ MARKET and OBJ GARDEN to deny Russian Forces the ability to project ground combat power WEST of PL CLAYMORE.

 

A. Purpose. The purpose of this operation is to deny Russian Forces the ability to project ground combat power to the WEST of PL CLAYMORE. We will accomplish this through the execution of an envelopment to seize OBJ MARKET and OBJ GARDEN. This will enable friendly forces to control passage from EAST to WEST across PL CLAYMORE, and will isolate enemy forces located to the WEST of PL CLAYMORE from their higher headquarters.

 

B. Key Tasks.

1. Conduct a penetration of enemy defenses to PL BOW to enable the seizure of OBJ MARKET.

2. Suppress and seize OBJ MARKET to allow friendly forces to exploit the enemy’s support zone.

3. Conduct deliberate resupply operations EAST of PL CLAYMORE to maintain tempo to suppress and seize OBJ GARDEN.

4. Suppress and seize OBJ GARDEN to isolate and defeat enemy forces to the WEST of PL CLAYMORE.

5. Retain control of bridges IVO OBJ MARKET and OBJ GARDEN upon the successful seizure by friendly forces.

6. Effectively shape the TF’s deep fight through the employment of Fires and Effects to enable the seizure and retention of OBJ MARKET, and OBJ GARDEN.

 

C. End State.

 

A. Terrain: Bridges IVO OBJ MARKET and OBJ GARDEN are seized and retained by friendly forces.

 

B. Threat: Enemy forces from PL BARBIE to PL KEN are isolated from their higher headquarters; enemy is unable to reinforce to the WEST of PL CLAYMORE.

 

C. Civil: Minimize collateral damage to civilian property and infrastructure to what is necessary for mission accomplishment.

 

III. Execution.

 

A. Concept of the Operation. We will accomplish the seizure of OBJ MARKET and OBJ GARDEN by conduct an envelopment of the enemy IVO PL CLAYMORE. This operation will be conducted in six (6) phases.

 

I. Phase 1, Movement to Contact, will begin upon crossing the Line of Departure IVO PL BARBIE. During this phase, the TF will defeat enemy reconnaissance assets within the disruption zone to the north of the 26 NORTHING. The TF will destroy enemy defensive positions located to the north of the 26 NORTHING up to PL ARROW. B1 and B2 will dismount IVO PL DISMOUNT, and will clear suspected enemy positions to PL MOUNT. A2 will remain on line with B1 and B2, and will provide support via direct fires. A1 and A3 will defeat enemy defenses from the 265 NORTHING to the 285 NORTHING, with A1 oriented EAST, and A3 oriented EAST and SOUTH. Fires and Effects will suppress enemy defenses in the close fight IVO M1, M2, A1, A2, before shifting assets to the deep fight IVO A3, A4, A5, and A6. This phase will end upon the TF reaching PL ARROW.

 

II. Phase 2, Penetration of PL BOW, will begin upon crossing PL ARROW. During this phase, Fires and Effects will obscure friendly movement to the NORTH of the 26 NORTHING by employing smoke IVO SMOKE 1. Fires and Effects will prioritize the deep fight IVO OBJ MARKET, but will maintain at least 1x Battery and 2x Mortar Sections (4x M1064s) on call for targets of opportunity. A1 and A3 will continue to attack to the east maintaining the previous orientation of direct fires up to PL BOW. A2, B1, and B2 will continue to attack from PL ARROW to PL BOW, and will clear IVO LRP 1 and LRP 2. TF Trains will establish the initial LRP IVO LRP 1. This phase will end with the TF postured on PL BOW.

 

III. Phase 3, Seizure of OBJ MARKET, will begin upon the TF being postured on PL BOW. During this phase, TF Trains will establish the second LRP IVO LRP 2. A1 will establish a support by fire position IVO BP A1A oriented on OBJ MARKET sector 3. Fires and Effects will suppress enemy defensive positions IVO OBJ MARKET. A3 will establish a blocking position IVO BP A3A oriented to the SOUTH and WEST to fix any enemy counter-attack during the seizure of OBJ MARKET. Upon successful suppression of OBJ MARKET, A1 and Fires and Effects will CEASE FIRE to enable A2, B1, and B2 to clear and seize OBJ MARKET. Fires and Effects will shift to suppress enemy defenses IVO OBJ GARDEN. A2, B1, and B2 will establish in battle positions IVO PL KEN (BP A2A, BP B1A, and BP B2A) to prevent the enemy reserve from retaking OBJ MARKET. TF Trains will relocate to IVO LRP 3. This phase will end with A2, B1, and B2 established in a hasty defense IVO PL KEN.

 

IV. Phase 4, Reconsolidation and Resupply, will begin with A2, B1, and B2 being established in a hasty defense IVO PL KEN. During this phase, TF Trains will conduct resupply of ammunition via the tailgate method. Priority of Supply (PoS) is A2, A3, A1, B1, and B2. A3 will conduct a withdraw to BP A3B to fix enemy forces IVO the NORTH/SOUTH road running from OBJ GARDEN to OBJ MARKET. Upon the establishment of BP A3B, A1 will conduct a withdraw to BP A1B, oriented on OBJ MARKET to prevent enemy forces from retaking the bridge crossings. This phase will end with A1 established in a hasty defense, and all callsigns reporting an ammo status of GREEN (greater than 90% ammo).

 

V. Phase 5, Seizure of OBJ GARDEN, will begin upon A1 established in a hasty defense, and all TF callsigns reporting an ammo status of GREEN. During this phase, A3 will shift to BP A3C oriented SOUTH to allow for freedom of maneuver for A2. A2 will maneuver to BP A2B and will suppress OBJ GARDEN sectors 2 and 4. Fires and Effects will continue to suppress OBJ GARDEN. B1, and B2 will stage IVO PL ISIS. Upon suppression being achieved, B1, B2, and A3 will conduct an attack to seize OBJ GARDEN. Fires and Effects will fire 1x MLRS strike on OBJ GARDEN upon B1 and B2 crossing PL ISIS. A2 will CEASE FIRE upon A3, B1, and B2 reaching LRP 4. Fires and Effects will cease fire upon B1, B2, or A3 crossing the 22 EASTING. A3, B1, and B2 will conduct an attack to seize on OBJ GARDEN up to PL ANUBIS. This phase will end upon A3, B1, and B2 reaching PL ANUBIS.

 

VI. Phase 6, Defense of OBJ MARKET and OBJ GARDEN, will begin upon friendly forces reaching PL ANUBIS. During this phase, A3, B1, and B2 will establish hasty battle positions oriented to the WEST/NORTH-WEST to prevent enemy counterattacks from seizing OBJ GARDEN. A2 will on order relocate to BP A2C to prevent enemy forces from seizing OBJ GARDEN. A1 will remain oriented on OBJ MARKET to retain control of the bridge crossings. TF Trains will establish IVO LRP 4 to conduct sustainment operation as required. Fires and Effects will fire on targets of opportunity as requested by line platoons. This phase, and operation, will conclude upon the receipt of a change of mission from Higher HQ.

 

IV. Sustainment. LRPs will be established IVO LRP 1 (Phase 2,3), LRP 2 (Phase 3,4) LRP 3 (Phase 4), and LRP 4 (Phase 6). Platoons will request resupply of ammunition from TF Trains upon depletion of ready-racks. Priority of Recovery is Self, Line Platoon, and TF Trains. Tow disabled vehicles to the active LRP for maintenance. Priority of MEDEVAC is Self, TF Trains.

 

V. Command and Signal.

 

A. Command. The succession of command is as follows: H6, H5, A2, B1, B2, A1, A3.

 

B. Signal. KANIUM SOP is in effect for frequencies. Voice is used for TF Command Net; requests for sustainment are conducted via P: free-text, and A: voice via TF Command Net.

And my plan. Which failed. Miserably. 

 

Well played on BLUEFOR and a very good plan and execution.
