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.
