1 Up Mission
Conduct direct action strikes on OBJ 1, OBJ 2 and OBJ 3 to kill/capture HVTs.

1 Up Concept of OPs     
Squadron Commanders intent is to conduct strike on three known OPFOR compounds (OBJ1, OBJ2, OBJ3) in order to kill/capture HVTs BLOWPIPE and MANDRAKE who are thought to be meeting eachother at one of these three areas. Strike operations will be conducted under the cover of darkness to maintain stealth and prevent OPFOR from being forewarned about BLUFOR operations. Each troop will land out of audible range of their designated objective and patrol in. Once all strike elements are in position and have made positive ID on HVTs assault will begin.

Alpha Troop will land at LZ 1 and patrol to FUP 1 before conducting close reconnaissance on OBJ 1 followed by assault.
Bravo Troop will land at LZ 2 and patrol to FUP 2 before conducting close reconnaissance on OBJ 2 followed by assault.
Charlie Troop will land at LZ 3 and patrol to FUP 3 before conducting close reconnaissance on OBJ 3 followed by assault.
