II. SITUATION

After completing the initial phase of the company’s intent, the company is now deployed to patrol bases around the region. With the extended reach, all platoons will now commence ISR operations and build the intelligence package for the task force. The enemy efforts have been unsuccessful in interfering with our mission and are expected to be less intense and organized. This is in line with the overall plan for phase two. 

   

I GROUND

In General: Asadabad is mostly a dry area, with some agricultural green zones along Kunar river,surrounded by the many mountain ranges rising above the province. The area has some larger more populated towns along with many smaller villages on the outskirts with little population easy for the Taliban to extort and claim a foothold. The road network is decent due to the many smugglers using the province as a safe haven to transport drugs, weapons and people.    

   

In Detail: We are deploying to the capital of Kunar province, Asadabad and will be setting up in camps north west of the town by the Pech river. Our main base will be FOB BUDD located close to a larger populated town, in order to assist all friendly forces in the province. The maneuver elements of the company will be located at PB Ashworth and PB Leakey on the mountains surrounding FOB Budd, in order to close the gap between coalition troops and locals.    

   

II ENEMY FORCES

Known & Suspected En. Positions: Intelligence suggests there are multiple insurgency headquarters and training facilities in the province, but no exact location has been established. Intelligence suggests an enemy hideout in the western part of 1 platoons sector.    

Strength: J2 assesses up to thousands across the province, of which several hundred are expected to be in our AO.
Morale: Moderate
Weaponry: AK and Soviet Era weaponry in use. Depending on the contents being smuggled across the border, more advanced weapons are to be expected. US naval special warfare confirms that they have encountered Soviet era static emplacements during operations in the area. Caliber up to 12.7mm and RPG/STRELA Missiles.     IDF: Mortars, unknown number and kind.    
Vehicles: Mainly Civilian vehicles adapted with Soviet Era Weaponry.    
Aircraft: None.    
Air Threat: Moderate. Soviet STRELA missiles have been reported.
Mine/IED Threat: MODERATE - General AO, HIGH - Areas of interest.

III. MISSION

1UP: Conduct ISR operations within platoon sectors in order to build an intelligence package of the region with actionable target data.

 

Conduct night time reconnaisance by force, in order to disrupt taliban operations. 

Continue deliberate actions in the previous taskings and secure the terrain.    

IV. EXECUTION

This will be a three(3) phase operation. 

     

INTENT

Both troops will conduct night time operations independently, disrupting taliban operations by hitting critical positions. We will respond aggressively to the recent fighting with taliban forces, they have been the instigator since we arrived and we are now changing the playing field by bringing the fight to them, on our terms. 

 

     

PHASE I

At 1945 Troop Alpha will give orders for the continued operation in DORAN.
Troop Bravo will plan a patrol in the town of KARIFT.

Both operations are expected to be carried out from 2000.
 

TOCC will be active from 1945.

     

PHASE II

At H-hr (2000) Troop Alpha and Troop Bravo will initiate their operations.


 

Troop Alpha will approach DORAN from the north and gain enough intelligence to conduct a possible assault/intradiction on the village of DORAN.

Troop Bravo will conduct a reassurance patrol in KARIFT, where they will gather HUMINT and bask in the glory from restoring the water supply in the region.

 

Actions on contact are to destroy tangible enemy targets as well as to cripple enemy morale. No civilian casualties, avoid damaging structures and personal property. 

     

PHASE III

As soon as each troop has completed their operation they will head back to their PB for a much needed reorg and resupply.

Be prepared to act on actionable intel.

     

Actions on contact, fight through.

     

GUIDELINES

Take the time to build intelligence about the target and target area, as soon as the "attack" is initiated speed and aggression is required.

Do not under any circumstances damage the water treatment facility.

While this is an assault, you are still required to PID your targets. Civilian casualties will result in mission failure.
