II. SITUATION

 

Our last operation begins in an attempt to remove and destroy the TALIBAN HQ located in the north of the region. We must first assault the town on RAVANAY then pushing north and continuing an all out assault on KARACHINAR eventually pushing through further north to the confirmed TALIBAN HQ in an attempt to capture any TALIBAN leaders and destroy the compound on our extraction.

 

i. GROUND

  • In General: Takhar is mostly a dry/arid area, mountainous in the central areas of the province. The area has some areas of farming land and has some larger more populated towns along with many villages on the outskirts with little population easy for the Taliban to extort and claim a foothold where the ANP hold less presence. The road network is basic but it improving with the newly elected government promising a public transport network and tarmac roads leading to every village in the area by 2022.
  • In Detail: Northern areas of TAKHAR are mountainous which gives the company an advantage by the use of 4/1 to provide overwatch. RAVANAY is a town in the dead end of a valley. It is small in size which should allow a quick all out assault in order to push north. It is thought that there is not a sizeable TALIBAN force in the town of RAVANAY, this will be used as the CCP and supply point once the town is taken.

 

ii. ENEMY FORCES

  • Known & Suspected En. Positions: Pockets of TALIBAN in the towns being assaulted due to the TALIBAN thinking that the area is a safe haven.
  • Strength: After more surveillance in the area by the US AIR FORCE it is clear the Taliban have potentially up to 5 sections worth of insurgents in the area.
  • Morale: High due to recent successful attacks.
  • Weaponry: AK and Soviet Era weaponry in use. Due to recent attacks on ANA & ANP a small amount of advanced weaponry has been gained. There is reports of Soviet Era static emplacements. Caliber up to 12.7mm and RPG/STRELA Missiles.
  • IDF: 82mm Mortars.
  • Vehicles: Unknown.
  • Aircraft: None known.
  • Air Threat: High Soviet STRELA missiles have been obtained in unknown quantities. JHC to Risk assess.
  • Mine/IED Threat: HIGH - General AOLOW- Areas of interest.

iii. ENEMY INTENT

  • To protect the confirmed TALIBAN HQ at all costs.

iv. FRIENDLY FORCES

  • Remainder of A Coy.
  • JHC & CSMR elements based at FOB EXETER..

v. ROE

III. PROBABLE MISSION

 

To land A COY onto HLS GONDOR and assault the town of RAVANAY to establish a temporary PB in order to conduct resupply and rearm at that location. To continue the assault north onto further towns resulting in an all out assault onto the TALIBAN HQ capturing any TALIBAN leaders still located there and destroy the compound on extraction.

1 FLIGHT should attempt to airlift 2x WOLFHOUNDS and 1x FOXHOUND and 1x RIDGEBACK to the town of RAVANAY once the assault has been completed so that 4/1 are able to be mobile and any casualties can be taken back to RAVANAY for CAS EVAC.
