I. PRELIMS

TIME: 0700L 10 November 2020
WEATHER: Clear skies
CURRENT POS: Oulu, Finland
TASK ORG;
10A: Lt Silbot
10B: Sgt Scarle    
11C: Cpl Ainsley

13C: Cpl McPherson

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.

22 hours of fighting the Russian advance, friendly forces are now on the attack. As local forces launch a counter attack, A Coy will attack enemy strategic positions in depth.

     

      

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 conduct sabotage operations in depth. Swedish and finnish 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.    
Strength: Assessed as approximately 1 Marine Infantry Battalions strength although an unknown number of support units are to be expected.
Morale: High.    
Weaponry: Modern Russian equipment, including equipment from the RATNIK program: AK-12s, PKPs, Modernized RPKs, etc. Caliber up to 12.5mm.    
IDF: 60mm mortars.    
Vehicles: The Russians have a large amount of BTR90s, BRDMs, BMPs, and other armored and light vehicles.    
Aircraft: Russian rotary air units support their forces on the ground.    
Mine/IED Threat: LOW.

Phase 3

Once both positions are taken, 1 Plt will continue north towards the MSR.
4/1 and 1/3 will support 1/1 and 1/2 crossing and assault on objectives north of the MSR.

Phase 4

Once the objectives have been taken out, 1 Plt will ambush enemy forces along the MSR.
