II. SITUATION

After the Russian attack on northern Europe, local forces diverted the attacking force towards the east. While the initial defensive operations were successful, parts of the Russian forces managed to break through the lines in Finland. 

As Finnish and Norwegian forces continue to fight the Russians to the north, Swedish and UK forces make an effort to stop the Russian advance on VT7, around Oulu, in order to deny them a supply route to the frontlines.

Local forces will provide air-, artillery and logistical support.

We are paradropping into a shit show, time will be our biggest enemy as we prepare for the Russian elements to push into our area of operations. 

 

  

i. GROUND

In General: OULU is a coastal town surrounded by forrests and coastline. The VT7 main road goes through the town which is divided by a large river. We are facing dramatic weather changes with strong winds and temperatures around 0 degrees. The terrain mostly consists of dense forests, road networks and rough coastlines. To our advantage the river limits the enemy avenue of approach and sets us up with a coordinated line of defense. 

In Detail: We will operate from OULU with support from the main airbase on the southern side of the river. On the ground, we will run defensive- and counter operations. Swedish air force squadrons will fly sorties against identified enemy forces and keep the air clear of enemy aircraft.

       

ii. ENEMY FORCES

 

Known & Suspected En. Positions: The Russians are attacking from the north and will be forced to use the river crossings in order to continue south. They will be channeled during their crossing.
