Dismount Scouts, send dismounts forward to wood/trees at grid 9735, 9425, orient west, hold.

Vehicles not to proceed any further west along rail tracks than wood feature.

Vehicles if possible move over bridge at grid: 9745, 9480, in concert with troop movements.

Vehicles go firm facing open area north west of main objective, provide flank security to 4E & 5E.

If not possible to cross bridge, secure edge of railyard as above, secure open area north east of “Dankersen” and north west of “Berenbusch” prepare contingency “Defecation/Oscillation”

I should mention this should be read in conjunction with the scenario open

Perhaps only a minor issue but any chance of telling us where line INDIAN is and OBJ DRABERT too?

They are existing graphics in the scenario.

Line "Indian" is where we can expect first contacts.

OBJ "Drabert" is our mission goal approx. one click over the canal.

I'll try and up load an image and/or plan at some point.

(It took all of yesterday evening to write this up.)

CO (M1A1) = Hedgehog

XO (M3A2) = Gibsonm

FO (FIST-V) = Zipuli (Not sure this is wise..... :smile: )

2/E (6x M3A2) = Duke (Ldr) Mouse (Sgt) (Note to CO: Pointman)

3/E (6x M3A2) = Katie (Ldr) Tactical Bat (Sgt)

4/E (4x M1A1 w/plows) = Tacom (Ldr) Abaddon (Sgt) Emi (Wing man)

5/E (4x M1A1) = Falli, Dr. Thodt, Ricopico, Eisenschwein (I'll let you guys sort out who goes where.)

7/E (CSS) =

I think I've persuaded a Mech Inf mate of mine to turn up for this.

He may just stick with me or perhaps he can grab one of the two vehicle Bradley patrols currently remaining?


The more the merrier! :)

We have a tank, four Brads with a mission (Or "Wing Brads" as per scouting, above) or the CSS element.

Platoon Organization

A Section

1. Tacom

2. Emi

B Section


4. Abadddon

Rehearsals: Each tank will conduct individual rehearsals prior to the operation. Points to be trained: plows, breaching, FCS (Leo driver anybody?)

Always have a retreat plot to the CSS area, identified with a circle.

as per the commander orders, here follows our pre-planned positions for each phase.

1. At phase line INDIAN we will assume overwatch positions at COYOTE. Be ready to move on order on wedge left formation.

2. Once at objective Drabert, A will take positions at ZORRO while B proceeds to TEJON. Prepare concealed positions using the buildings as cover. Overwatch your respective fields of fire while remaining covered from the east.

3. If 5E advance to the position to the north, B will move to position LOBO,hide and cover the field to their front. Pay special attention to blue on blue situations, specially in case of a hasty retreat by 5E.
