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 With 4 days remaining in our rotation of Operation Resolute Support, we would normally be preparing our gear and equipment ready to hand over Camp Fulmar, FOB Skua, FOB Keystone and Outpost Nevis. However with the disappearance of Pte Toonen all installations are on high alert. Due to the speed in which it was constructed, FOB Keystone lacked critical protection and defences which would have prevented many elements of the Taliban attack. According to ANA intel, the 3 most likely places Pte Toonen will have been taken to are as follows: The village of Pradesh is located north west of the now demolished Tal Kar and is considered in the friendly area of influence. The enemy stronghold of Kamar is junction used by the enemy to access Andi along with the areas surrounding Chahar Dara and Kar Shek, it is possible he has been taken here ready to be moved elsewhere when possible. There is a cave to the north of Kar Shek that is used regularly by traffickers as a storage location. It is believed that the traffickers pay the ANP to ignore it. It is possible but unlikely that Pte Toonen is located behind our lines within a Taliban cell, however every possibility is being considered. After an agreement between BN HQ and the ANA, the ANA have agreed to conduct an assault on Andi during the early hours of the morning in order to pull any fighters or resources away from our search and rescue operations. 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.

MISSION We are to conduct a search and rescue operation at dawn to locate and extract Pte Toonen who was captured during the previous Taliban assault on the newly created FOB Keystone. Pte Toonen is believed to be in Pradesh, Kamar or a cave system north of Kar Shek. Whilst we conduct this operation, the ANA will conduct a dawn assault on Andi with the objective of capturing and securing both Andi and Kamar. Both are considered enemy strongholds. After completing our search and rescue operation and A Coy is secure back at FOB Keystone, we will prep for extraction and hand over of all installations to the incoming UN troops and US army rangers.

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.

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.

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.

  17. 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.

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. III. SITUATION We have now captured the ASR south of Andi, Airport Road, Tanpeh (the ANA's objectives) and our own target compounds of Darya Yu and the ammo/supply cache at Kar Shek Ark. The enemy are now on the back foot, and so we predict they will resort to even more 'dirty warfare'; increasing their use of ambushes, IEDs, IDF systems and technicals. Our next targets are Chahar Dara, Kar Shek and the known stronghold of Kamar. It is imperative that we capture Chara Dara in the small window before the enemy has a chance to bring more fighters, weapons and resources into the area. Command believes it is CRITICAL that the ANA are seen by the local population in retaking this settlement. Due to the capture of Darya Yu and Kar Shek Ark, the enemy is now restricted to a north approach to Chahar Dara for reinforcements and supplies. This does not, however, remove the possibility of attack from the north-easterly Kamar. This will be the largest manoeuvre conducted thus far within this campaign, involving 2 platoons of ANA and 1, 2 and 3 platoon of 16AA A Coy.

Our objective is to secure all compounds up to the MSR; the ANA will be taking the town EAST of MSR. Once secure our secondary objective - battlefield conditions permitting - will be to assault Kar Shek itself with the assistance of ANA forces. 2 platoon will hold Darya Yu and Kar Shek Ark to ensure security of our eastern flank. 3 platoon will dig in south of Andi, Tanpeh and the Airport Road checkpoint. This should prevent any enemy from reinforcing Chahar Dara from the east. The ANA with be stationed to the south of Tabeed prior to the assault. Due to the sensitivity of this operation and in order to maximise on the element of surprise and current lack of enemy operational freedom, we will be conduct our assault at DAWN. The assault is to commence no later than 0350 Local time. Sunrise will be between 0440 and 0450. There is at least one MANPAD in the AO: all air assets are restricted from crossing further north than Darya Yu. V. EXECUTION Orders from Capt Silbot/Lt MacDonald to follow. VI. ROE Card ALPHA.

PRELIMS Time: 1000L Weather: Hot and Sunny Current Pos: FOB Skua TASK Org: 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 low lands and connect mud walled compounds. III. SITUATION After securing the checkpoint by Al Ka the enemy took us by surprise, using a tunnel network that came out behind our lines. The entrance was discovered to the south west of FOB SKUA, on the western river bank. The enemy collapsed this end of the network when they began to be overrun, so we have no information on other possible exits - keep your eyes peeled for suddenly appearing Taliban. Due to low enemy morale as well as reduced operational abilities and supplies the ANA want our assistance conducting a counter-offensive operation to the east of Chahar Dara. ENEMY FORCES: INTSUM 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: Small Arms and RPGs Mine Threat: LOW in general but assume HIGH IED threat in areas of interest. FRIENDLY FORCES A Coy 2 & 3 Plt's will be on standby at Camp FULMAR ANA understrength Coy in the AO. Standby for update on Air assets available to us. IV. MISSION We will once again be conducting an operation through ANA lines, with the objective of capturing the strategic compounds of Darya Yu and Kar Shek Ark. The ANA will be conducting a simultaneous operation to capture Andi and Tanpeh; allowing us to act as flank protection against QRFs from the high-activity areas WEST. Once taken, these compounds will allow us to establish checkpoints on the eastern MSR (Airport Road) and the tracks currently used to resupply Chahar Dara from the east. V.

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. III. SITUATION In the 3 days it has taken us to construct FOB SKUA, the ANA have both secured and then lost the compound of AL KA. It was cleared to establish a checkpoint along the MSR, and lost due to assault by enemy infantry from NORTH down the MSR and hills to the WEST. A QRF of ANA from Naqel successfully extracted their wounded under suppression from small arms and sniper fire. AL KA is now under enemy control. Intercepted enemy ICOMM chatter has discovered an increase in traffic through Chahar Dara and Kar Shek, as well as talk of an unknown IDF system. The dirt road connecting the ANA outposts to their main base is now patrolled twice a day to prevent IED placement and is considered secure by command. ENEMY FORCES: INTSUM Strength: J2 assessed as Coy Strength Remaining in our AO.

  21. OPERATION ORDER TO: A COY 2 PARA BN FROM: MACDONALD, LT, 1PLT SUBJECT: Operation Iron Uniform 1 101900ZOCT07 ++++++++++++++BEGINS++++++++++++++++ I. SITUATION 16AA has been rotated from their station on Altis and replaced with US Marine Corp units after the fragile situation with the Altis government. We will now assist with Operation Resolute Support. We will be deployed to an existing base - previously constructed and operated by the US - now renamed Camp Fulmar. We will be training and assisting local ANA forces in their battle to deny the Taliban movement and operational freedom. 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. III. ENEMY FORCES INTSUM 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 on the roads Aircraft: Not likely Air Threat: Small Arms and RPGs Mine Threat: LOW in general but assume HIGH IED threat in areas of interest. Reports from ANA troops state that the village of Tal Kar is their current HQ with the villages of Kamar and Anbar Tappeh being of importance to them. They are known to be in control of police HQ in Kar Shek. IV. FRIENDLY FORCES We have friendly forces in the form of 2 platoons of ANA troops, these troops are considered LOW in quality. 2nd and 3rd platoon of the 16AA 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; denying the enemy movement and operational freedom. Educate the ANA on prevention of civilian casualties and blue-on-blue situations. Where appropriate we will also assist the ANA in retaking the police HQ at Kar Shek. VI. IN DETAIL We are tasked with securing a compound near to a local ANA base in order to set up FOB SKUA. We will then make contact with the local ANA commander and assist them in retrieving the bodies from a recent IED attack and return them to the ANA. After initial brief A Coy will be taking 3 vehicles and driving through TAL GOZAR heading EAST and crossing the ford into TAPPEH KA. OOM will be 1/1, 1/3, 4/1. Make sure you're maintaining a good spacing but safety catches on and lots of smiles for the locals. They've just had the USMC through here so let's try and apply a little British charm and get ourselves started on a good footing. The local ANA base will be just up the road from our FOB and they have set up a series of compounds to the WEST to give themselves a defensive line facing N which is where the majority of the hostile activity has been coming from. This means that while we will be required to provide our own security we are not directly on the front line. Once we have taken stock of our new home from home myself, 1/3 and 4/1 will push N to the ANA base to meet our local liaison and see where we can assist. While we are doing that 1/1 you are to put out a fireteam strength patrol in TAPPEH KA to get a feel for the local area and what the local CIVPOP are like. Once we have input from local liaison we will reassess our priority tasking. VII. ROE Card ALPHA. People live and work in this AO and we are not here to disrupt that.
