PRELIM

 

Aim. 

The idea behind this mission is to practice mission focus and not to be distracted.  The OPFOR is based on mixture of Ethiopian Rebel Forces with some Russian Forces (RF) acting as "Advisors".

The Scenario is designed to challenge decision--making, not only the CO, but the Sect/Tp Commanders as well as the individual crews.   

 

Recommendations.  In constructing your plan the following should be considered:

 

a.            There is really no intelligence worth anything on the current situation - act accordingly.

                             b.                      The RF "Advisors" represent a small sized force - no idea on numbers or equipment.

                             c.                       Remember the 2 minute rule on Direct Fire!

                             d.                      ROE is a key constraint - we do not know who is a friend and who is a rebel within the Government Force so only fire in selfdefence.

                                                      If you fire on a CIV or Gov Militia that is loyal that will  trigger unintended consequences elsewhere.

1) SITUATION:

 

a.         General Situation:

 

You are a mixed DK/SWE Training force (TF JONAS) for the African Union and UN that now finds itself in the middle of a military coup in KATANGA West Africa.  You are located in KATI to the East of the country.  The whole region to your West is in chaos with reports of inter-government fighting, roving militias on all sides of the ethnic divides raping and killing as they go from village to town destroying government infrastructure. 

 

Swedish Oil workers were reported to be held up in the TEXECO Oil facility, but last reports on their current location suggests the group may have spit and at least three of the party are unlocated, possibly at TONKA or GOV RESIDENCE. 

 

In addition, there is a small UN force trapped in their camp in the west by what the UN claims to be a large Rebel Armoured force.  We have previous INTEL that there was a Armoured Unit near that location conducting training with the Russian "Advisors"  The situation is serious and deteriorating rapidly. 

 

While the political dialogue in the UN begins, DK & SWE have ordered you to go and find the oil workers and return them to the safety of KATI.  In addition both governments have agreed that you will investigate the presence of Rebel Forces in the West, report their strength and if necessary prevent their movement east towards KATI.   

   

b.         En Forces:

 

Unknown number of Government forces and rebel civilian militias.  Probably with some T-55/62 and BMP variants.  NOT all Government military forces and Civilian militias are hostile to the Government, UN or the TF.  The safe zone ends once the southern bridge on Hy 53 at KATI is crossed.  The use of IEDs by militia forces has been reported as has the use of AT/AP mines.  Local sources also indicate the Rebel Forces have MANPADS.

2) MISSION:

 

TF JONAS is to FIND and RETURN safely as a priority, SWE oil workers and other Scandinavian citizens unable to return to FARP ANGEL within the safe area IVO KATI.  The TF is then to SECURE the UN CAMP BAGUINEDA and PROTECT the UN Force located at the camp, while conducting an assessment as to the THREAT posed by the Rebel military and Militia forces.

All Kanium games are newbie friendly. I would suggest training on the Leopard 2A5 or the STRV 122; they are both very similar vehicle platforms. Complete all of those training missions, then work at the tank range. If you are able to score 90% in accuracy with an average kill time of 10 seconds or less, you are doing well. 

 

As for what position to take, guys usually are willing to take new players on as gunners IF you aren't comfortable with controlling your own vehicle.

Welcome - dont worry about it, we will take care of you.Best way to learn is by doing it, and dont worry about making any mistakes: you wont make any that everybody else havent made at least once.

 

I have put you as a gunner for @Major duck in A31.

 

So a good advice is to do the Tutorial fro Leopard 2 and maybe a round or two in the firing renage. If you are there a bit before game time, then we will help you set up comms in TS.

OK Great.  As of now my gunnery skills are the pits.  I have TS and use it regularly so that shouldn't be to much of a problem. I also assume "Press to Talk" is most preferred.

Yes - we use press to talk and whisper lists to keep the comms as orderly as we can. Major Duck will help you set it up per above

 

And nobody expects you to be a sniper first time, or second and third for that matter. Just try to not hit any friendlies and the rest will come
