TO: A COY 2 PARA BN
FROM: MACDONALD, LT, 1PLT
SUBJECT: Operation Velvet 231900ZSEP18
A splinter group of the Altis Armed Forces have taken over KAVALA with the backing of a unknown source. They have now declared KAVALA as FIA territory. KAVALA police have surrounded the town and attempted to retake it without success. While large majority of the civilian population have fled to camps in the nearby towns set up by the Altis Government and guarded by AAF, there is still a number of civilians within KAVALA. The AAF have resorted to the use of Artillery and MLRS systems in an attempt to demoralise the FIA and as such around a dozen FIA have already surrendered to AAF forces.
Tight streets and urban environment within KAVALA. Hilly areas give way to agricultural land interspersed with small villages and towns outside KAVALA.
III. ENEMY FORCES
Believed to be no more than 2 platoons of infantry with limited ammo and technicals. LOW possibility of IEDs. HIGH possibility of snipers. NO air assets. LOW possibility anti-air units.
IV. FRIENDLY FORCES
We have friendly forces of Kavala police and elements of the Altis Armed Forces, both are considered low quality troops, we have no information on the location or activity of the IDF that the AAF have been using. We have air support available.
V. PROBABLE OWN MISSION
Conduct assault on Kavala, remove enemy forces and return control to the Kavala police and Altis government.
VI. IN DETAIL
We will approach from the south of Kavala and push through the streets, clearing houses as we go, once the hospital to the east of Kavala has been secured, we will move towards the dockyard in the west of the town, it is believed that the command structure is hold out in one these buildings and once removed or captured that the remaining forces will surrender or flee by land and boats.
Civilians are known to still be in the area and a large amount of the city has taken heavy damage from government artillery.
