This will be a 4 phase operation.

 

PHASE 1

We will advance into a staging area short of the marketplace. A/1 will move by vehicle along the MSR into the staging area and link up with a FAMa commander. 4/1 will move with the convoy in rotary wing transport and provide QRF for the forces on the ground.

PHASE 2

A/1 push forward and secure OBJ BUFFALO and OBJ HIPPO by force. 4/1 will deploy sniper teams at 10A discretion.

Concurrent, FAMa will set up roadblocks North and south of MSR SERPENT, EAST of ASR CHEVALLE and AST TURTOISE in order to cordon the area.

PHASE 3

Once OBJ BUFFALO and OBJ HIPPO has been secured A/1 will send out a detatchment to secure and set up an HLS at OBJ GIRAFF in order to secure a CASEVAC chain. FAMa will attempt to tighten the cordon.

PHASE 4

Once we have secured objectives we will defend them and aid civilian casualties until reenforced by local forces. Anticipate a lenghty wait as FAMa can be unpredictable on their timings.
