  3. OPORD OPERATION LYNX III TO: A COY, 2 PARA BN. FROM: SILBOT, LT, OC 2 PLT, A COY, 2 PARA BN. SUBJECT: OPERATION LYNX III 052000ZAPR20 ++++++++++++++++++BEGINS++++++++++++++++++ I. PRELIMS TIME: 0900L 08 November 2020 WEATHER: Clear skies, foggy, chance of rain and snow CURRENT POS: Oulu, Finland TASK ORG; 20A: Lt Silbot 20B: Sgt Scarle 21C: Cpl Ainsley 22C: Cpl Joyce 23C: Cpl McPherson 42A: Cpl Cullen 44A: A/LCpl Tasner II. SITUATION After the Russian attack on northern Europe, local forces diverted the attacking force towards the east. While the initial defensive operations were successful, parts of the Russian forces managed to break through the lines in Finland. As Finnish and Norwegian forces continue to fight the Russians to the north, Swedish and UK forces make an effort to stop the Russian advance on VT7, around Oulu, in order to deny them a supply route to the frontlines. Local forces will provide air-, artillery and logistical support. We are paradropping into a shit show, time will be our biggest enemy as we prepare for the Russian elements to push into our area of operations. i. GROUND In General: OULU is a coastal town surrounded by forrests and coastline. The VT7 main road goes through the town which is divided by a large river. We are facing dramatic weather changes with strong winds and temperatures around 0 degrees. The terrain mostly consists of dense forests, road networks and rough coastlines. To our advantage the river limits the enemy avenue of approach and sets us up with a coordinated line of defense. In Detail: We will operate from OULU with support from the main airbase on the southern side of the river. On the ground, we will run defensive- and counter operations. Swedish air force squadrons will fly sorties against identified enemy forces and keep the air clear of enemy aircraft. ii. ENEMY FORCES Known & Suspected En. Positions: The Russians are attacking from the north and will be forced to use the river crossings in order to continue south. They will be channeled during their crossing. Strength: Assessed as approximately 1 Marine Infantry Battlegroup strength although an unknown number of support units are to be expected. Morale: High. Weaponry: Modern Russian equipment, including equipment from the RATNIK program: AK-12s, PKPs, Modernized RPKs, etc. Caliber up to 12.5mm. IDF: No known capability in country. Vehicles: The Russians have a large amount of BTR90s, BRDMs, BMPs, and other armored and light vehicles. Aircraft: Russian rotary air units support their forces on the ground. Mine/IED Threat: LOW. iii. ENEMY INTENT To open supply lines to enable an assault on HELSINKI. iv. FRIENDLY FORCES A Coy 213th Fighter squadron based at the main Airbase 41st Armoured Bn based on the southern bank 92nd Artillery Bn 1. Ilmatorjuntapatteri based in KEMPELE 20th Amphibious Bn expected to reach OULU in 24 hours As well as smaller units in supporting roles III. MISSION Conduct delaying operations between line 201 and 206 in order to break the enemy advance and deny him use of VT7. IV. OWN MAIN EFFORT This will be a 4 phase operation! Phase 1 2 Plt will paradrop in vicinity of RP8 and regroup the platoon on the ground Phase 2 Once 2 Plt has regrouped, 2/2 will advance to the southern end of line 201 while 1/2 and 1/3 set up around RP2. 4/2 will find positions on RP14 in order to support 2 Plt as they regroup towards line 206. Phase 3 2/2 will place mines on VT7 and head back to RP26 from where they can ambush the enemy. 2/1 and 2/3 will ambush the enemy at line 201 and then regroup at RP22 with support from 4/2. Phase 4 All elements of A Coy will make an effort to delay the enemy advance with high ambition. All to be prepared to defend line 42. VI. ORDERS GROUP Time: 2015GMT Location: RP8 VII.

SITUATION After Russian forces crossed the borders of Georgia, Ukraine and Belarus they have come to a halt facing NATO forces in a military and political standoff. While the conflict is currently on hold along the eastern border, satellite images indicate additional troop movement to the north, pointing to an imminent attack at the northern borders. As Finnish, Swedish and Norwegian forces scramble to allocate troops towards the border, A company is tasked to perform sabotage operations in order to delay the Russian advance. Local forces will provide air-, artillery and logistical support. We are very much at war, our actions will inevitably decide the outcome of our future, time to step up and get the job done! i. GROUND In General: RIKSGRÄNSEN stretches along the northern borders of Norway, Sweden, Finland and Russia and makes up over 500km of borders. We are facing a harsh environment with temperatures reaching -45 degrees celsius, heavy snowfall and strong winds. The terrain mostly consists of mountain ranges, dense forests and few road networks, all covered in deep snow. To our advantage the terrain is channelizing and the enemy is forced to use hard ground to advance inland. In Detail: We will operate from F21 Airbase which is located in the town of LULEÅ in Sweden. From there, we will run air assault and support operations to assist the Scandinavian forces with sabotage operations. Swedish and Norwegian air force squadrons will fly sorties against identified enemy forces and keep the air clear of enemy aircraft. ii. ENEMY FORCES Known & Suspected En. Positions: The Russians are going to deploy along the coast and will be forced to make their landing at specific locations in order to avoid the ice covered sea. They will be vulnerable during their landing and during the initial advance inland. Strength: Assessed as approximately 1 Marine Infantry Brigade strength although an unknown number of support units are to be expected. Morale: High. Weaponry: Modern Russian equipment, including equipment from the RATNIK program: AK-12s, PKPs, Modernized RPKs, etc. Caliber up to 12.5mm. IDF: No capability in country, but has long range cruise missiles at their disposal. Vehicles: The Russians have a large amount of BTR90s, BRDMs, BMPs, and other armored and light vehicles. Aircraft: Russian rotary air units can become active in the AO. Mine/IED Threat: LOW. iii. ENEMY INTENT To take control of RIKSGRÄNSEN and advance further into scandinavia. iv. FRIENDLY FORCES A Coy based at F21 Airbase 213th Fighter squadron based at F21 Airbase 191st Armoured Bn based at I19 Reg 41st Armoured Bn based at I19 Reg 92nd Artillery Bn based at A9 Reg Nord Bde based in Bardufoss Lapin Jääkärti bn based in finnish Lappland 1. Ilmatorjuntapatteri based in finnish Lappland As well as smaller units in supporting roles III. MISSION Hold RIKSGRÄNSEN for at least 4 hours in order to delay the enemy advance and open up for a counter attack. IV. OWN MAIN EFFORT This will be a 3 phase operation! Phase 1 We will join the company lines and assume defensive positions in our platoon area between HÖÖPAKKA and KANGAS. 3 Plt will be on our right, east of KANGAS. 2 Plt will be on our left, South west of HÖÖPAKKA Phase 2 1 Plt will hold the line and destroy any advancing enemy forces. 1/1 will be on the left, 1/2 in the center, 1/3 on the right. 4/1 will act as a dynamic support, enforcing the lines where it is needed, main focus is AT. Phase 3 Once the main enemy effort has been repelled and local forces have arrived in concentration, we will support a friendly counter attack. Guidelines The enemy assault will likely come in waves, take the opportunity to rearm and evacuate casualties when we aren’t directly in contact. Utilize VJ to provide support where applicable. Local forces can and will be in the area, positively id all your targets. VI. ORDERS GROUP Time: 2010GMT Location: KANGAS DEPOT VII. CSS Dress: CEFO, Winter uniforms & PPE.
