We will be conducting an AIRBORNE ASSAULT in the south near the town of FERES. The terrain is mostly flat ground, broken by low stone walls, ditches and stands of elephant grass.

III. SITUATION
 

Phase 1

A Company has moved to MTA LEMNOS to conduct refresher training on the AIRBORNE ASSAULT tasking. We will conduct SOP training and a number of drops to practice the drop SOP and rallying on the ground. Number of drops will be determined by speed of getting through each drill.

 

Phase 2

While enemy forces have been halted further north along the PANAGIA Peninsula, an enemy SIGINT / HQ facility has been located at GR 215072 by allied EW assets. Defence assets have been stripped to protect forces now being counter attacked by allied forces and this facility is lacking in AD and is only lightly defended. 

ENEMY FORCES:

Known and Assessed Enemy Positions: As per images below. 
Strength: J2 assessment is that an Inf Platoon has been left to provide local security with perhaps a section strength of signals troops making up the SIGINT station. Warning! Signallers are known to be totally badass operators. There will also be security troops and logistical support in the town to the East.

Morale: Assessed as low due to their main attack faltering. 
Small arms: Standard Russian Small Arms
Hvy Weapons: MGs up to 12mm and RPGs

IDF - Not expected
Vehicles: Soft Skinned vehicles most likely. Armoured assets are far to the north. 
Aircraft: Not likely
Air Threat: Small Arms and RPGs
Mine Threat: LOW. This position has only just been occupied and their engineers are busy to the north. 

FRIENDLY FORCES 
JAG FW and Rotary assets.

IV. OWN MAIN EFFORT

 

This operation will be conducted in four (4) phases;

Once seen to be ready by Tac, we will get some down time until we conduct our drop onto DZ Targa in the dead of night. RVs will be placed for all elements to link up before heading to the Coy RV GR 208 063 bringing all equipment and vehicles along the way that are found from the drop;

  • OOM - As per jump procedure.

     iii. Phase 3

When all elements are within the Coy RV, we will step off towards our assault using the defilade tracks as best we can. A Pl obstacle crossing will take place in rough area of lone building with broken wall on it's West side in GR 211 065 before heading North back into the defilade until FAL GR 2135 0699. Eyes onto Obj Shiny from this position before the push onto the objective. OOM will fluctuate during movement and will be given in QBOs;

  • Pl Tac -  Move with 1/3.
  • 1/1 - Will setup BoF along defilade track towards Obj Shiny.
  • 1/2 - Will act as Reserve but watch Left and Right arcs for En. reinforcement.

Actions On;

     Casualties: To be reported to 0/B and then ditched in the defilade track if practical for Reserve to deal with under 0Bs discretion.

     Reinforcements: Call this in and QBOs will be issued with potential for assistance from FW/ RW assets.

     Detainees: Passed onto 1/0/B as per SOP.

Concurrent activity: 4/1 will be on Supporting duties with IDF & MGs in overwatch. Flt Assets will be hitting predesignated targets as per IMINT.

   iv. Phase 4
