  16. OPERATION ORDER TO: 1Pl, A COY, 2 PARA BN. FROM: SILBOT, LT, OC 1Pl, A COY, 2 PARA BN. SUBJECT: OPERATION Excalibur I 091900ZAUG20. ++++++++++++++++++BEGINS++++++++++++++++++ I. PRELIMS TIME: 0410L WEATHER: Mostly Cloudy to Partly Cloudy after sun up, no rain CURRENT POS: USS Harry S. Truman, Carrier Strike Group 8 TASK ORG; 0A: Lt Silbot 0B: Sgt Blanthorn 1/1 - IC: Cpl Ainsley, 2IC: A/Lcpl Smith 1/3 - IC: Cpl McPherson, 2IC: LCpl Verrick 4/1 - IC: Cpl Scarle, 2IC: LCpl Cullen II. SITUATION South Ossetian Nationalist Rebels, have seized the northern parts of Georgia and are preparing to initiate operations to push further south to seize the capitol, Tblisi. After appealing to NATO, the UK & US governments have agreed to a joint operation involving US naval aircraft and UK ground forces to point an end to the South Ossetian rebellion. Care needs to be used to avoid encroaching on Russian territory, which borders the country to the north. There are rumors that the Russians are supporting the rebellion materially, and we would not want this operation to escalate into an all-out war. i. GROUND In General: Georgia is a wet/temperate area, mountainous in the northern and South Eastern part of the province with dense forests located throughout the area. The coastline has several larger cities, including the provincial capitol, Tblisi. The central part of the province is where most of the agricultural production occurs, with many villages dotting the area surrounded by working fields. The road network is aging, but modern since it was built during the Soviet Union’s control of the province. In Detail: We will deploy to Airbase Prague which is currently on the edge of Georgian controlled territory. From there, we will run counter insurgency and support operations to assist the Georgians with recapturing lost territory. US Naval aircraft from Carrier Strike Group 8 will fly sorties against identified South Ossetian AA positions. ii. ENEMY FORCES Known & Suspected En. Positions: The South Ossetians have entrenched themselves in the northern mountains of the province and have been working their way down to the coast, capturing villages along the way. Strength: Assessed as potentially 2 Brigades strength across the province. An unknown number of militia and foreign volunteers also support the rebels. Morale: High due to recent successful operations. Weaponry: Mainly Soviet-era weapons stolen from the Georgian Army. More modern Russian-sourced weaponry may be present in the area as well. Caliber up to 12.7mm and RPG/STRELA Missiles. IDF: 82mm Mortars. Vehicles: Unknown quantity of stolen Georgian Army vehicles, including Shilkas, T-72s, BTRs, and BMDs. Lighter vehicles include UAZs and trucks as well as Civilian vehicles adapted with Soviet Era Weaponry. Aircraft: None known. Air Threat: High in the northern part of the province. Rebels have control of Shilkas and other various AA weaponry in entrenched positions. JHC to Risk assess. Mine/IED Threat: LOW - General AO, MEDIUM - Areas of interest. iii. ENEMY INTENT To take control of South Ossetia and declare independence from Georgia. iv. FRIENDLY FORCES A Coy & JHC based at Carrier Strike Group 8 v. ROE CARD BRAVO '424'. III. PROBABLE MISSION Take supplies offloaded in Tblisi Harbour and bring them to Airbase Prague. After completion of the convoy, secure the airbase from immediate AA threat situated at Surami Fortress (Objective Gladius) which is a known enemy stronghold. IV. OWN MAIN EFFORT This operation will be conducted in three (3) phases; i. Phase 1 All sections are to arm up onboard USS Harry S. Truman and await 1 Flight to prepare. 1 Flight will bring the company to Tblisi Harbour via the route below and offload at HLS Scimitar. After arrival, company will load supplies and form a convoy before proceeding to phase 2. ii. Phase 2 Company will travel in a convoy to Airbase Prague via the main MSR. There may be enemy contact along the route so we will need to remain vigilant. The route is outlined below. 1 Flight will provide air cover for the convoy. iii. Phase 3 Company will offload supplies at Airbase Prague, then proceed to assault Objective Gladius at commander’s discretion. Due to air threat surrounding Objective Gladius, 1 Flight will provide ISTAR to locate enemy AA positions in the northern part of the province. V. TIMINGS IC Briefing: 090400ZAUG20 1 Flight Departure from USS Harry S. Truman: 0425L Promptly VI. ORDERS GROUP Time: 0410L Location: Flight Deck of USS Harry S. Truman. VII. CSS Dress: CEFO, MTP & PPE. Equipment: As per SOP at 2IC discretion. Weapons: As per SOP at 2IC discretion. Ammo: As per SOP at 2IC discretion. Reserve will be available at PBs. Meds: CTM and CSMR. POWs / Detainees: Called into 0B, then to be passed over to local enforcement/authorities. VIII. COMMAND AND SIGNAL i. Command: Lt Silbot (10A), Sgt Blanthorn (10B), Cpl Scarle (41C). ii.

This post will serve as a brief knowledge base, dealing with the most frequently asked questions and (hopefully) providing the sought-after answers. Q. What times do you play during the week/weekend? A. We play exclusively on Sundays at 1900 Zulu (GMT+1) and 2000 Zulu during the Winter (GMT). Q. Can I still join if I can't make these days or times? A. Unfortunately, no. We require all potential candidates to commit to attending on this day, at the time shown above. We realise this may seem like a big commitment, but our hope is that those candidates who do choose to apply will be eager enough that they will want to attend on Sundays, at a minimum Q. I don't own Arm3 or its expansion Arma3 Apex, can I still play with 16AA? A. The 16 Air Assault Brigade uses Arma 3 exclusively. Please note that before you apply to join the 16AA, you must have purchased the base Arma 3 game. Q. Which versions of TeamSpeak 3 and ACRE do you run? A. The versions change more often than this thread, but the compatible versions are supplied through our Arma3Sync FTP. Q. How do you work to achieve a MilSim atmosphere within the game? A. The 16 Air Assault Brigade prides itself on its accurate and realistic training methods employed in conjunction with a well-disciplined and professional atmosphere that is observed at all times during operations. As a community, we work together to ensure that our gaming experience is as close as we can get to the real thing, by adhering to strict communications procedures; utilizing a fully realized Ranking System, based on the British Army; providing detailed and well thought out campaigns and missions, built in-house; employing higher command to oversee section movement and taskings and methodically plan and execute operation orders. In addition, we host regular training sessions that focus on all manners of drills and tactics that enable us, as a community, to accomplish our objectives... and have fun whilst doing it. Q. What sort of assets do you use within Arma 3? A. As the 16AA is based on real airborne infantry brigade, we predominantly use helicopters to get from A to B. A full list of our air assets can be found on the 16AA Wiki. The sort of equipment we use in-game depends on the mission or campaign that we are playing; however, the 16AA predominantly uses British equipment. For land travel, we use a variety of transport vehicles. The 16AA at present do not employ dedicated crew roles for the use of Armoured Fighting Vehicles such as the FV510 Warrior. Q. I've been with other communities before and played mostly as a Sniper or within a 'Recon' capacity. Does the 16AA have a need for this sort of role? A. The 16 Air Assault Brigade as a community tries to focus on infantry section cohesion and the necessary tactics and drills that accompany that role. Our mission styles are mainly cantered around Quick Reaction Force style gameplay with rapid airmobile assaults, or peacekeeping patrols and COIN (Counter Insurgency) Operations. Specialist roles such as Marksmen, GPMG Gunners, and Heavy Anti-Tank Gunners are used as and when needed, and predominantly carried out by members of A Coy Fire Support Group. Q. Can I join even if I'm with another Arma Community? A. Unfortunately, No. The 16 Air Assault Brigade requires a high level of dedication from its members, paying strict attention to Sunday operations at the prescribed times. Not only this, but we want our members to be committed to the community in all aspects. It is this principle that sets the 16AA apart from other ArmA3 Communities and is the reason we are able to continue operating, as we have since 2004. Support roles in the 16AA Q. I wish to join a support arm. How can I go about this? A. no applications to join a supporting arm will be considered until you have spent a minimum of 1 month on the ground as part of an infantry section. Your first action upon deciding that you would like to join a supporting arm is to speak to your I/C and the I/C of the supporting arm in question. Depending on staffing levels and your own ability you may or may not be accepted, or you may be placed on a waiting list.

  26. Our modpack has been updated; please update now. We've gone back to our normal mod pack. This post details the changes we've made to that normal pack. The following changes have been made: Added: @ace_rhs_compat - compatibility for RHS and ACE Previously this used to live in @rhs*. They've been moved out to allow us to use the same keys for @rhs* as the general public. You should now be able to join public servers with our versions of RHS and ACE. Updated: @16aa, with a large number of changes, including: Many 16AA weapons now use RHS sounds. Thanks to Rabbit for doing a lot of the work on this. Blank firing adaptors for SA80s are now real attachments and may be attached to any weapon (it is unwise to try to fire live ammunition while using one). Thanks to Tasner for supplying the UI picture and to Rabbit for his initial attempt at separating the BFA from our L85A2. Our SA80s now support "magazine wells" which means that many community-made magazines are compatible with them and appear in-game. This means that blank magazines can be loaded into any SA80 and appear correctly. Our Javelins now move at a much more realistic speed, thanks to Ben and MD who did most of the work. @16aa_public @16aa_thirdparty Project OPFOR ACE optional mods @ace, including: new medical system our multi-bang flashbang code (so our L107A1 will have 6 bangs again) @acex @acre2 @cba_a3 @cup_terrains_core @cup_terrains_maps @rhsafrf @rhsusaf Removed: @rhsgref - was unused Size of update: 500MB if you already had the "normal pack" downloaded. The eagle-eyed among you may notice that @16aa has not had any changes in relation to the new ACE medical system. There will probably be a small update later in the week to fix that. NB: our experimental repository, sync2.16aa.net has been taken offline. We'll probably move permanently to something like it soon. Use sync.16aa.net instead.
