It has two main settlements, Strelka in the east and Kamenyy in the north. 

Russian airborne forces have taken the strategically vital island of UTES in an AIR ASSAULT at probably company strength. They have begun digging in while waiting for their heavy equipment to arrive by ship which is en-route now. 

2 x IL-76 airframes landed there 6 hours after the assault and delivered probably 2 but possibly 3 ZSU23-4 AAA systems. 

Turkish Air Forces scrambled and provided a CAP to prevent further air reinforcement, turning back a half dozen further transport aircraft and their escorts in the process. 

The Navy has now established CAP over the island and has begun preparatory bombardment using NGS and air attack.

1. Likely section strength on the high ground overwatching our landing beach.
