GROUND Limited high ground with dirt roads with connecting compounds, gives way to fields with trees and shallow ditches lining the boundaries. Roads are limited in the lowlands and connect mud-walled compounds. British operations KUNDUZ region III. SITUATION "The British Armed Forces regretfully announce the death of Afghan National Army commander Umar Az, who was killed in a confrontation between the commander and members of the British armed forces stationed in the area trying to disarm a captured high value target. In the struggle the firearm accidentally discharged and commander Az sustained injuries which resulted in the death of the commander. The British units in the region and accompanying ANA units are now undergoing operation changes to ensure that a situation like this does not reoccur." - 16AA, Battalion HQ After the death of commander Az, the already fragile relationship between 16AA and the ANA, ANP and Civilian population is rendering close to non existent. As such all operations in the area have been temporarily suspended. No direct threats have been made against NATO units in the region by local forces, as such Battalion HQ is currently unwilling to compromise the ROE and expresses extreme caution when identifying and engaging targets. Until relations with the local forces can be re-established and strengthened, Battalion HQ is unwilling to conduct any forward operations, but instead direct the main effort towards rebuilding relationships in controlled areas. ENEMY FORCES STRENGTH: J2 assessed as company strength remaining in our AO MORALE: Reasonable SMALL ARMS: Generally AK type small arms up to 14.5mm of russian manufacture but with soome older western type armaments being displayed HVY WEAPONS: RPG-7 or variants, and 82mm mortars are likely VEHICLES: Civilian vehicles or technicals AIR THREAT: At least 1x FIM-92 Stinger MINE THREAT: LOW in general but assume HIGH IED threat in areas of interest FRIENDLY FORCES A Coy (2 Plt, 3 Plt, Coy HQ) ANA understrength Coy in the region Air assets are available but limited IV.

EXECUTION This will be a 4 phase operation Phase one 1 Plt will move to FOB KEYSTONE and establish full combat readiness. 2 Plt will return to FOB SKUA and assume area responsibility for the sorrounding area. 3 Plt will remain at the main camp as force protection with a QRF element available for both regions.

  13. OPERATION ORDER TO: A COY 2 PARA BN FROM: SILBOT, CAPT, OC A COY 2 PARA SUBJECT: Operation IRON UNIFORM VI 112000ZNOV2018 +++++++++++++++BEGINS+++++++++++++++ I. PRELIMS Time: 0530L Weather: cold and foggy at dusk and dawn; hot and sunny during the day Current pos: FOB SKUA TASK ORG: 0 - CAPT Silbot 10A - Lt MacDonald 10B - Sgt Dahl 41A - A/LCpl Cullen II. GROUND Limited high ground with dirt roads connecting compounds, gives way to fields with trees and shallow ditches lining the boundaries. Roads are limited in the lowlands and connect mud-walled compounds. III. SITUATION After a very successful operation in Chahar Dara, we have begun construction of a new FOB (codename KEYSTONE) within Chahar Dara which will greatly improve our response times to situations within our area of influence. Once we have completed KEYSTONE, 2 platoon will move into FOB SKUA with 3 platoon remaining at Camp FULMAR. We now know the identities of the local Taliban commander, his son, 2 remaining deputies and the smuggler he associates with along with. Unfortunately, it is currently impossible to confirm the INTEL we have on enemy resources and troop movements. However we do now know how resources and fighters are entering the area undetected. In the 3 days since construction of KEYSTONE began, a number of mortar rounds, RPGs and small arms have been fired towards KEYSTONE and Kar Shek. Unfortunately, one of the mortar rounds fired towards Kar Shek fatally wounded the police chief. We also believe that a number of Taliban have disguised themselves within the civilian population as the bodies of a village elder and his son were found near Tabeed. Both are believed to have been executed. The enemy stronghold of Anbar Tappeh along with the village of Gerdan have been a regular source of SIGINIT. Along with limited HUMINT from the ANA and ANP, we believe the enemy have brought large amounts of reinforcements in the form of fighters, weapons, ammunition, explosives and other materiel into the AO. We currently have no INTEL as to the intended destination of these resources. Due to these events, the planned night assaults on Andi and the stronghold of Kamar have been postponed until further notice in order to allocate all required resources for an assault on the suspected enemy HQ of Tal Kar before it can be reinforced. Due to the current air threat, air support is restricted from crossing further north than Tap La. MEDEVACs will need to fly NOE once north of Tap Ka. BN HQ is considering a ROE adjustment in response to the evolving environment. ENEMY FORCES Strength: J2 assessed as Coy Strength remaining in our AO. Morale: Assessed as reasonable Small arms: Generally AK type small arms up to 14.5mm of Russian manufacture but with some older western FN type armaments being displayed. Hvy Weapons: RPG7 or variants and 82mm mortars are likely. Vehicles: Civilian vehicles or technicals Aircraft: Not likely Air Threat: At least 1x FIM-92 Stinger Mine Threat: LOW in general but assume HIGH IED threat in areas of interest. FRIENDLY FORCES A Coy 2 & 3 Plt will be on standby at Camp FULMAR ANA understrength Coy in the AO. Air assets are available. IV. MISSION With environment around us changing regularly, BN HQ has decided the capture of the suspected Taliban HQ of Tal Kar is key to the creation of a buffer zone between ourselves and the enemy. We will therefore liaise with the ANA at their base in Chahar Dara, The ANA will place themselves into a fire support position in the desert hills to the south west of Tal Kar, giving us to cover to assault Tal Kar itself. Troops are to exercise caution when engaging targets. There is a high possibility that the enemy will use human shields in their operations. The relationship and level of trust between ourselves and the civilian population is on a knife edge after deaths of the village elder and his son, the relationship between civilians and the ANA/ANP is not far behind. There is also a possibility that the enemy will have left key intelligence in and around the compounds of Tal Kar. We are not expecting a defending force of more than 2 sections. 2 platoon are currently tasked with security around KEYSTONE. 3 platoon will continue to hold their positions south of Andi. The ANA with continue to hold Kar Shek Ark along with their positions around Tanpeh and south of Andi. V. EXECUTION Orders from Capt Silbot/Lt MacDonald to follow. VI. ROE Card ALPHA. People live and work in this AO and we are not here to disrupt that. I expect sighting reports to be coming to me before anyone starts engaging targets unless there is a clear and immediate threat to life. VII. CSS i. Dress: CEFO, MTP and PPE. ii. Equipment: As per SOP ii. Weapons: As per SOP iv. Ammo: As per SOP v. Meds/CMT: CSMR are to operate as per SOP. IIX. COMMAND AND SIGNAL i.

  25. OPERATION ORDER TO: A COY 2 PARA BN FROM: SILBOT, CAPT, A COY OC SUBJECT: Operation Iron Uniform V 042000ZNOV18 ++++++++++++++BEGINS++++++++++++++++ I. SITUATION It has been a week since the joint operation to retake Chahar Dara which resulted in 14 ANA wounded and 10 ANA casualties, 6 from enemy fire and 4 from a blue on blue incident. The 16AA suffered 3 KIA and a downed Apache attack helicopter. The enemy is believed to have suffered heavily in the attack with an estimated 50+ KIA plus a large amount of weapons, resources and vehicles. A number of ammo and supply cache were also found in Chahar Dara along with 6 mines all of which have been removed by engineers. There is also a high possibility that the unknown sniper who has been harrying us has been heavily wounded. Since the liberation of Chahar Dara, the ANA have retaken the police station at Kar Shek and life has mostly returned to normal within our area of control. The ANA have repositioned a number of their outposts along with two new MSR checkpoint to the north of Chahar Dara. The ANP have also begun patrols around Chahar Dara along with the surrounding areas to the south and east. The strategic situation of the area is fragile but stable. We have gained a large foothold with the liberation of Chahar Dara and Kar Shek, as such we can now dictate the time and location of engagements. From our current positions our next targets are Andi, the enemy stronghold of Kamar and the possible enemy HQ in Tal Kar. SIGINIT and HUMINT suggest that Tal Kar has been abandoned and the majority of fighters have left Kamar to the area surrounding Anbar Tappeh. With limited air support and all 3 platoons of the company spread across a 4 mile frontline, our options are limited. With limited numbers, weapons and resources it is unknown what the enemy’s next move will be. It is highly likely that they are awaiting resupply and reinforcements from neighbouring Districts and/or Provinces. II. GROUND Limited high ground with dirt roads connecting compounds, gives way to fields with trees and shallow ditches lining the boundaries. Roads are limited in the low lands and connect mud walled compounds. Key: DARK BLUE areas are controlled by the 16AA. GREEN areas mark the places controlled by the ANA and their FLOT. LIGHT BLUE marks out the location of the potential new FOB. ORANGE marks the location of the humanitarian organisation with whom we will work to distribute supplies. YELLOW areas are ANA vehicle checkpoints. Some of these are manned. RED areas are those in which the enemy is suspected to still operate. III. ENEMY FORCES Believed to be a understrength company of infantry with small arms and RPGs. MEDIUM possibility of technicals. HIGH possibility of IEDs. MEDIUM possibility of snipers. NO air assets. MEDIUM possibility anti-air units. Reports from ANA troops state that the village of Tal Kar contains the current EN HQ with the villages of Kamar and Anbar Tappeh being of importance to them. IV. FRIENDLY FORCES We have friendly forces in the form of an understrength company of ANA troops. These troops are considered LOW in quality. 2 and 3 platoon will be on 24 hour standby at Camp Fulmar. We have air support available. V. PROBABLE OWN MISSION Train and assist the ANA in combatting the Taliban in Kunduz Province, deny the enemy movement and operational freedom. Educate ANA on prevention of civilian casualties and blue on blue situations. VI. IN DETAIL With our replacement apache still in transport and the enemy’s lack of resources and fighters forcing them into heavier use of guerrilla warfare, BN HQ is unwilling to leave any part of our frontlines without ANA and 16AA units. As such we will be meeting with village elders within Chahar Dara, contacting a possible CI to establish the identities of enemy commanders, assisting the ANA at an NGO organised food and water distribution. Secondary objectives are to assist the ANA with manning two MSR checkpoints north of Chahar Dara and clear a compound just north of Chahar Dara as a locale for a new FOB to reduce our response times to situations within the area. 2 platoon along with ANA will continue to hold Kar Shek Ark while 3 platoon and ANA conduct and assault on Andi. Any vehicles going north or coming from the north of Chahar Dara and to be searched and approached with caution, any suspicious activity is to be reported to command. VII. CSS i. Dress: CEFO, MTP and PPE. ii. Equipment: SOP iii. Weapons. SOP iv. Meds/CMT: As per SOP. v. POW & Detainees: Report to 10A. IIX. COMMAND AND SIGNAL i.
