  1. 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.

  11. From: Hill, Brigadier, CO 16th Air assault Brigade To: 2 Para Bn + Atts Subject: Letter of Commendation DTG: 112300ZFEB19 ++++++++++++++BEGINS++++++++++++++ Letter of Commendation Presented by the Brigade commander of the 16th Air Assault brigade to Acting Lance Corporal Cullen In recognition of outstanding service and heroic actions during Operation Sea Lion II February 10th 2019, Acting Lance Corporal Cullen is presented with the 16th Air Assault Brigade commander's letter of commendation. During Operation Sea Lion II and the battle of 'Hill 88', Acting Lance Corporal Cullen held the entire west of the hillside on his own. On multiple occasions the enemy rushed his position as he with great courage and selflessness repeatedly pushed them back, calling for grenades to be thrown on the other side of the rock he was hunkered behind. Toward the end of the engagement, Cullen was eventually overrun and badly wounded. Without his actions there is no doubt the enemy would have retaken the hill which would have significantly changed the outcome of the operation. Acting Lance Corporal Cullen's actions bring great credit upon himself, 16th Air Assault Brigade and the British Armed Forces. Award presented in country February 11th 2019 Signed Brigadier Hill Regimental Commander +++++++++++++++ENDS+++++++++++++++

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.
