Assassin 7 Posted February 20 Share Posted February 20 "Red Tide 1986" This is a West German Leopard 2A4 company team tasked with conducting a hasty defense in sector of a Soviet style motorized rifle battalion (T-72 and BMP-1). Size: large Length: 50 minutes Responsibility level: lowest required: company highest allowed: company Multiplayer capability: co-operative: yes head to head: yes Created by: Edward Williams Date created: 05 SEP 07 Date modified: 17 MAR 11 "Red Tide 1986" (Defend FTX 17-2-E1202) 1) Situation: Weather is clear, visibilty is about 2500 meters. Ground condition is extremely dry from the lack of rain in these summer months. Expect dust levels to be high causing obscuration. This should give us an advantage over the enemy when we utilize our thermal sights and will allow us to easier detect the enemy's advance. Enemy Forces: Intelligence estimates Soviet Guards forces on the advance towards Frankfurt. They are relentlessly driving forward in an attempt to overwealm our defenses and shatter the 1st Armored Division's line of defense. Enemy forces in our area appear to be composed of one full strength T-72 tank battalion reinforced by a BMP-1 motorized rifle company. Friendly Forces: Your forces consist of 1./143.Panzer.Btl made up of three Leopard 2A4 MBT platoons, a Marder 1A3 IFV platoon, a M113/FO and supporting elements. Two recon platoons of Spahpanzer Luchs (ASLAV-25s) from the division Aufk battalion are screening the battalion's forward positions. ***Be adivised, our units are currently at about 40% ammo/fuel capacity so they should be resupplied as the situation permits.*** 2) Mission: 1./143.Panzer.Btl will conduct a hasty defense in sector to prevent further advance of soviet forces towards the west. 3) Execution: We will assume a hasty defense of the sector southwest of Fulda. The defense should be in depth and flexible so that we can fall back if necissary and draw the enemy forces into engagement areas of our choosing. It is vital that we repel the enemy advance or Frankfurt will be threatened. Scheme of Maneuver: The team will take up positions of the company commanders choosing in an attempt to deny the enemy passage through our lines. Care should be taken to coordinate movement with the cavalry platoons located to our front in order to ensure maximum cooperation and remove any possibility of fratricide. Concept of Fires: 1./143.Panzer.Btl will have at its disposal HE, smoke and ICM provided by three batteries of M109 SP Howitzers. The FOs will accompany our CO and coordinate fires in the M113/FO. Four pre-plotted priority targets are available for use and referencing. Priority of fires are H Co (HHC) and then A Co (1.Kompanie). Engineer support: None. 4) Service and Support: Supply: Fuel and ammo will be on hand to provide resupply if needed and will be coordinated by the XO. . . . Designer's notes: *Do not move east of FEBA, north or sourth of the boundary lines, or off the west edge of the map or your unit will be destoyed. This represents either leaving the battlespace or, in the case of the FEBA, destroyed by enemy units. *You must prevent the enemy from breaking through to the west for 60 minutes. The enemy will break through if they move west of the dashed line labeled "ENY breakthrough zone". If the enemy breaks through then the mission will end immediately in a defeat. *This scenario has a condensed OPFOR arrival time format. An actual soviet style attack will develop first with the combat reconnaissance patrol/forward patrol (CRP/FP), followed by the forward security element (FSE) at +20 minutes, then the AGMB will arive at +60 minutes. To remove most of the time spent waiting, the OPFOR attack has been condensed into 1/4 time scale. Created by: Volcano Man 0 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
