TASK Org:
10A - Lt MacDonald

III. SITUATION
We have now captured the ASR south of Andi, Airport Road, Tanpeh (the ANA's objectives) and our own target compounds of Darya Yu and the ammo/supply cache at Kar Shek Ark. The enemy are now on the back foot, and so we predict they will resort to even more 'dirty warfare'; increasing their use of ambushes, IEDs, IDF systems and technicals.

Our next targets are Chahar Dara, Kar Shek and the known stronghold of Kamar. It is imperative that we capture Chara Dara in the small window before the enemy has a chance to bring more fighters, weapons and resources into the area. Command believes it is CRITICAL that the ANA are seen by the local population in retaking this settlement. Due to the capture of Darya Yu and Kar Shek Ark, the enemy is now restricted to a north approach to Chahar Dara for reinforcements and supplies. This does not, however, remove the possibility of attack from the north-easterly Kamar.

This will be the largest manoeuvre conducted thus far within this campaign, involving 2 platoons of ANA and 1, 2 and 3 platoon of 16AA A Coy.


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: At least 1x FIM-92 Stinger
Mine Threat: LOW in general but assume HIGH IED threat in areas of interest. 

FRIENDLY FORCES 

A Coy 2 & 3 Plt will be on standby at Camp FULMAR
ANA understrength Coy in the AO.
Air assets are available.


IV. MISSION
The main MSR into Chahar Dara is expected to be blocked and/or mined, as such 1platoon 16AA will be conducting an assault from the WEST. Our objective is to secure all compounds up to the MSR; the ANA will be taking the town EAST of MSR. Once secure our secondary objective - battlefield conditions permitting - will be to assault Kar Shek itself with the assistance of ANA forces.

2 platoon will hold Darya Yu and Kar Shek Ark to ensure security of our eastern flank. 3 platoon will dig in south of Andi, Tanpeh and the Airport Road checkpoint. This should prevent any enemy from reinforcing Chahar Dara from the east. The ANA with be stationed to the south of Tabeed prior to the assault.

Due to the sensitivity of this operation and in order to maximise on the element of surprise and current lack of enemy operational freedom, we will be conduct our assault at DAWN. The assault is to commence no later than 0350 Local time. Sunrise will be between 0440 and 0450.

There is at least one MANPAD in the AO: all air assets are restricted from crossing further north than Darya Yu.
