Operation Peacemaker

6´th of July 2021 
SB Mission by Nike-Ajax 
  
0. Background

For some time now tensions and disputes have been rising in Eastern Europe, fueled by a number of reasons including the perceived lack of understanding for the position and challenges faced internally and externally by the nations on Europe and NATOs Eastern flank. This has lead to internal dissention in the southeastern area, which combined with perceived threats from the East has led them to increase the expenditure on their armed forces. 

 

Specifically then one of the countries bought a reinforced Armored/mechanized Battalion´s worth of used but fully serviceable vehicles from Turkey. This includes a number of upgraded M60´s, AIFVs ((represented by M113AS4)), MILAN ATGMs and at least 20 Leopard 2A4´s.

 

In a very disturbing turn of events that no one saw coming, then the reinforced Battalion which received the  equipment, have risen against what they termed "national interests" and against "The EU dictatorship". 

The Local government have tried to contain them with little luck but have managed to establish a heavy belt of obstacles and mines, forcing the Rebels to slow down and try to consolidate in the AO. 

 

EU have taken a more political role, or in others word have not done much of anything.

 

The local Government at this time turned to Germany for help at to stop any further disruption and  chaos, in the context of EU and Bilateral agreements.

 

Our government has reluctantly agreed but at this time we have a very limited force in the AO.

 

It has been decided by the politicians - against the advice of the military - that the time to strike is now as the rebels are mostly contained in one area, even though we are outnumbered.
The reason for this is not merely that we have the rebels isolated, but much more importantly that Intel have conclusively stated that the Rebel Commander is present at the forward Eny HQ. 

 

Thus our primary mission is a Kill/Capture of the ENY commander.

 

Its is expected that the localized rebellion, will fall apart if the ENY Commander is taken out of the equation.


I. Situation 
 
Time: 
0600 Local Time 
  
Weather: 
Lightly clouded with no chance of rain, 23 degrees Centigrade and LOS 3600 Meters

 

General
 
No war have been declared. Our strategic objective is to SECURE and HOLD OBJ GRIFFIN for at least 30 minutes, to enable a SOF Detachment from KSK Kommando Spezialkräfte standing by and under Direct Control of the TF HQ to either capture or kill him.  

 

The Rebels have surged a limited distance into our AO, then taken up HASTY DEFENSE having lost momentum and initiative. It is likely they are expecting a COUNTER ATTACK. 
 
Terrain: 
Dangerous mixture of closed and open, with channeling and blocking terrain features particularly to the West and South-west with a combination of a hilly and forested terrain. Friendly Air and ARTY have DESTROYED all the bridges and mined the access points to the West from where the Rebels attacked, thus they can not reinforce except with what is in the AO now which in any case is almost everything they have. 
 
Obstacles:  
The Local government has put a strong belt of minefields (Reference Maptrace) and obstacles to the South-west, to channel, block and delay the Rebels. This minefield has now been reinforced by way of FASCAM (No timer on them as these are older generation FASCAM). THESE AREAS ARE PROHIBITED to all our forces on pain of DEATH. 
 
This leaves a number of passes and areas where we - hopefully - can channel the enemy into our Engagement areas, while the SOF Detachment find and Inert the Rebel Commander.  
 
Current Situation.  
The Rebels have pushed into the AO, and now quite literally have their backs against the wall. This means that they have occupied the better positions with superior numbers, however they have not had time to entrench. Our Taskforce (TF) PEACEMAKER, as an independent QRF, have been tasked with this mission. You will be outnumbered but not outfought, But dont underestimate the Enemy. 

 

We are on Friendly soil, and must thus expect a fair number of civilians in the AO - and the international community is watching. Therefore, you are tasked to avoid civilian casualties to the degree that it does not endanger your command or overall goals. 
 
FIRES in the Urban areas are only authorised by TF COMD, and then only if absolutely necessary.


Enemy Forces
 
Strength: 
ENY Combined Bn(+). 
 
Equipment: 
At least two (2) full combined and reinforced Companies with M60A3, AIFV (With M113AS4 used as substitute) and with additional support and recon troops (From INTEL likely VEC-M1). Likely also screening forces around OBJ GRIFFIN as well as the likely presence of ENY ATGM, which can include MILANs, confidence about last HIGH. 
The ENY have another two full companies in reserve which they will likely push forward in a COUNTERATTACK when we have taken OBJ GRIFFIN. Confidence about that is HIGH.
 
Quality: 
likely experienced conscripts and their ammunition the best the Turkish that sold the the vehicles can get. 
 
MDA: 
ENY only in HASTY DEFENSE in Main Defensive Areas (MDA), no constructed defences, entrenchments and major obstacles identified or likely  - aside from the known minefields in the South-west of your AO (Reference Maptrace), confidence about which is HIGH.    

 

Reinforcement: NOT expected from the North, South or East as their lines of communication are cut for now. They DO have reinforcements to the West Reference Maptrace and per previous. Confidence HIGH. 
 
ENY CoA: 
Likely will not continue their attack, but rather try to lure our forces into an attritional fight where their numerical advantage, and use of terrain, will make up for their weakness in equipment.  ENY have access to Artillery in substantial numbers, exact units deployed for this operation unknown. 


Friendly Forces (FF). 
 
Local AIR SUPERIORITY achieved. 
 
Flanks.  
FF North and East to SECURE Flanks, but not to Spt Attack.  
 
TF PEACEMAKER:  
TF consists of 3 x tank platoons of Leopard 2A6 as well as 2 x mechanized infantry platoon of Marder 1A3 (PLTs of 4), along with a tactical reserve of 1 SEC of Leopard 2A6 (2) and a 1 SEC of Marder 1A3 (2)
 
B Coy Dismounted infantry equipped with 2 x Anti-Tank teams (SPIKE MR) (Odds callsigns) and 2 x LMG Teams (Even callsigns). Each MECHINF platoon in B COY thus has 2x Anti-Tank teams and 2 x LMG Teams, the rest being issued with AT-4s and rifle grenades plus a medic team, and are all considered Elite.   

 

A team of Friendly SOF under direct control of TF HQ (so not on map), will execute Capture/Kill when OBJ Griffin is Cleared enough to safely execute their mission. 
 
FIRES;  
4 x 6 Tubes of 155mm SP howitzers, no FASCAM available,   
1 x 6 x 120 mm SP mortars with their own supply trucks (with the howitzers being further back, so off-map,  
8 CAS strike missions on call. 

 

(As usual: ALL ARTILLERY IS UNDER THE CONTROL OF CO AND FO: so do not touch the ARTY controls if you not one of these two). 
 
LOGISTICS: 
Repair Sect, 2 x Supply and 1 x MED Sect. 
 
NO Engr, as there are expected no major obstacles in vector of attack.  So BYPASS any ENY obstacles.

 

Rules of Engagement. NOTHING IN THESE RULES OF ENGAGEMENT LIMITS YOUR RIGHT TO TAKE APPROPIATE ACTION TO DEFEND YOURSELF AND YOUR UNIT.
 
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 NOT at war. Destruction of civilian property has been cleared by the local authorities ONLY if CO deems that there is a CLEAR military value and goal in said destruction, including FIRES in urban areas.
E. All Laws of War are to be observed. 

 
II. Mission:  

 

TF PEACEMAKER is to DESTROY ENY between PL PEACE and PL HARMONY as needed iot SEIZE OBJ GRIFFIN & HOLD OBJ for at least Thirty (30) Minutes, IOT facilitate the Capture/kill of ENY HVT.   

 

III. Execution  
 
Concept of the Operation:
Taskforce PEACEMAKER with 2 SECs TAC RESERVE, ATTACK from NORTHEAST to SOUTHWEST; conducting an attack by fire from PL PEACE towards PL HARMONY, and then ASSAULT to SEIZE OBJ GRIFFIN.  Once SECURE, PREPARE HASTY Defence to HOLD Objective until SOF forces confirm Capture/kill: expected duration 30 minutes. This will DEFEAT the ENY and PREVENT further ENY offensive operations, achieving our immediate political goal. 
 
Commanders Intent  
 
Purpose - The purpose of this operation is to DESTROY the ENY forces in OBJ GRIFFIN, then OCCUPY, thus allowing FRIENDLY SOF forces to execute Capture/kill mission on ENY HVT.   
 
Key Tasks 
         1. Attack from PL PEACE towards PL HARMONY to DESTROY the ENY. 
         2. Seize and Clear OBJ GRIFFIN. 
         3. Conduct HASTY DEFENSE ITO DEFEAT ENY Counter Attacks 
         4. Once Friendly SOF have exectued Capture/kill mission, then execute a HASTY RETREAT to original Deployment Area

 
End State:  
Friendly.  FF postured in or IVO Original Deployment Area; consolidated and prepared and able to continue operations towards the SOUTH. 
Enemy.   ENY DESTROYED between PL PEACE and PL HARMONY, unable to support Enemy forces EAST of the Hills. 
Terrain.   All tactically commanding terrain features SECURED and CLEAR of ENY.

I am struggling to get my new controller to work the Leopard properly. If I can get it working I will try and get in.
