Phase 2

4/1 and 1/2 will INFIL via the second INFIL point across the river where the water is shallow enough to cross, then set up in the woodline north of OBJ WATERLOO in order to provide support by fire during the platoon assault.
1/1 and 1/3 will INFIL via the bridge at INFIL point one and carry out an assault on OBJ WATERLOO with support from 4/1 and 1/2.

Phase 4

Once OBJ MONEY MONEY is secured, 4/1 and 1/2 will set up an ambush along the MSR utilizing the defilade at the edge of town. 1/1 and 1/3 will establish a stop line south of the ambush location, making sure that the enemy force cannot push through.

Phase 5

1 Plt will regroup by the radio tower and prepare for the next phase in the assault. Additional QBOs will be given prior to the next phase. 

Phase 6

4/1 and 1/3 will head south in force reconnaissance toward OBJ SUPER TROUPER until established contact with the enemy garrison. As soon as they have fixed the enemy in contact, 1/2 and 1/1 will make a flanking maneuver left and assault the enemy from east to west. 

Expect the enemy to have vehicles and fighting positions, speed is key, taking out the enemy forces before they can man their positions.

As soon as the helicopters are overhead 4/1 and 1/1 will launch their assault.

Guidelines

The enemy does not expect us, we will use our sensors and element of surprise to do as much damage as possible on our own initiative. Hit them hard and hit them fast! Resupplies should be called in advance to the utmost extent so that we can minimize reorg times.
