1: SITUATION

The time has come.

The invasion fleet is under way, today we will be breaking through the "Atlantic Wall" as the 1st Infantry Division, we are going to do an amphibious landing along the beaches of Normandy, We will be the second wave on Omaha, the division that landed just before us have taken most of the bashing but they have not been able to break though the barbed wire laid along the beach, this is where we come in.

In Operation Neptune there are 5 zones codenamed UTAH, Omaha, Gold, Juno, Sword. We are joined by the British 5th infantry Division fighting on Gold / The Canadian 3rd Infantry Division on Juno / British 3rd Inf Division 6th & airborne division at Sword

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

2: MISSION DETAIL

Strong currents forced many landing craft east of their intended position or caused them to be delayed. For fear of hitting the landing craft, American bombers delayed releasing their loads and, as a result, most of the beach obstacles at Omaha remained undamaged when the men came ashore.

Despite the rough seas, a couple of tanks have made it ashore they will be able to assist in the assault.

We will need to push up the beach and clear out all the bunkers in our sector of Dog Red and also we need to clear the town of Les Moulins and the strongpoint on the hill overlooking the beach.

 

A. ENEMY FORCES

 

Strength:

We know that the beach defences and at Omaha area is manned by the 352nd Division. The 914th and 916th Grenadier Regiments are expected to form the brunt of the defence force with support from 352nd Panzerjaeger Abteilung and some Feld-Ersatz units. Total strength in our area is estimated at around 6000 on the front lines with another 6000 in reserve.

For our specific AOR we're looking at a composite battalion of around 500/1000 from the 352nd Infantry

 

Composition:

The German defensive preparations show there their plan is to stop the invasion at the beaches. Four lines of obstacles are constructed in the intertidal zone. The first, a non-contiguous line with a small gap in the middle of Dog White and a larger gap across the whole of Easy Red, is 250 m (270 yd) out from the highwater line and consists of 200 Belgian Gates with mines lashed to the uprights. 30 meters (33 yd) behind these is a continuous line of logs driven into the sand pointing seaward, every third one capped with an anti-tank mine. Another 30 meters (33 yd) shoreward of this line is a continuous line of 450 ramps sloping towards the shore, also with mines attached and designed to force flat-bottomed landing craft to ride up and either flip or detonate the mine. The final line of obstacles is a continuous line of hedgehogs 150 meters (160 yd) from the shoreline. The area between the shingle bank and the bluffs was both wired and mined, and mines were also scattered on the bluff slopes.

We will be dealing static emplacements with in trenches and tunnels. As well as the MG bunkers that line the cliffs as well as the weaponry of rifles and machine guns, more than 10 light artillery pieces are deployed at these strongpoints.

Air Defense:

For Air defences we are looking at flak batteries. These are expected to be a combination of big flak 38's and smaller flakvierling systems which fire smaller rounds but faster. The Luftwaffe has a limited presence in the area.

 

B. FRIENDLY FORCES

We are landing part of the first wave. The second wave will arrive approximately an hour later with the third wave an hour after that.

 

The British 5th infantry Division fighting on Gold / The Canadian 3rd Infantry Division on Juno / British 3rd Inf Division and the 6th Airborne division at Sword.

 

Essentially, we're on our own.

3. EXECUTION

 

A. Objective Overview

 

Mission Intent:

Our mission tasks are to push up the beach clear the main trenches covering the beach and destroy the pak emplacements located there, then we push in and clear Les Moulins, then we need to clear out WN 68 strongpoint of all contacts.

 

Ground Forces Task:

 

1. Insert into Dog Red via landing craft

 

2. Set up Squad fall back points near where you landed.

 

3. Push up the beach, being careful of the mines and blow up a whole in the barbed wire.

 

4. Eliminate all PAK 40 emplacements in front of the town.

 

5. Move in and clear the town of Les Moulins.

 

6. While town is being cleared we can have a squad clearing WN 66

Operation Albany

MAP: Omaha V2

Mission Date: 16/06/18

OPORD: Albany

Terrain: Rural Countryside, Villages, Normandy "Bocage"

Weather: Clear, Full Moon

Forecast: No Change

Start DTG: 06/06/1944 0130hrs

Starting Location: Off Map Airstrip NW of AOR

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

History:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1: SITUATION

The time has come.

The invasion fleet is under way and in less than 6 hours they will be throwing themselves against this "Atlantic Wall" that Hitler is hiding behind. Luckily when he built his wall he forgot to put roof on it. That's where we come in Eagles.

The 101st will drop behind the Atlantic Wall to disrupt enemy movement behind the beaches and secure vital transport nodes to help the guys on the beaches make a coherent beach head.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

2: MISSION DETAIL

1st platoon, Golf Company, 3rd Battalion 506th PIR, 101st Airborne are assigned to the drop zone behind Omaha Beach.

There are 3 major supply dumps behind the beach that serve the artillery overlooking the beach. These are our primary objectives. We cut the supplies, we limit the artillery that can fire on the approaching boats and we save some of those poor bastards coming up the beach.

Since this is the German 2nd Echelon you can expect convoys and patrols throughout the area. Take as many of these out as possible. I want maximum mayhem on this gents. The more carnage we cause, the more disruption and confusion we spread. It is that simple.

A. ENEMY FORCES

Strength:

We know that the beach defences and local area is manned by the 352nd Division. The 914th and 916th Grenadier Regiments are expected to form the brunt of the defence force with support from 352nd Panzerjaeger Abteilung and some Feld-Ersatz units. Total strength in our area is estimated at around 6000 on the front lines with another 6000 in reserve. For our specific AOR we're looking at a composite battalion of around 500 from various 2nd echelon units and reserves.

Composition:

These guys are a static defence unit so they already lack Panzer and motor transport support. They do however have a lot of artillery, particularly Flak 38 systems which can fire as both conventional artillery and AAA. Armoured vehicles are probably limited to STuG IIIs and Marders from the 352nd but there could be some Panzer IVs kicking around so be on your guard. While most of the infantry is expected not to leave their assigned area, you can expect roaming patrols and counter pushes, especially as time wears on and we lose the element of surprise.

Air Defense:

Air defences are centred around flak batteries protecting major locations. These are expected to be a combination of big flak 38's and smaller flakvierling systems which fire smaller rounds but faster. The Luftwaffe has a limited presence in the area after the pounding they took from the Mighty 8th but you can still expect some German air cover particularly from Bf-110 Night Fighters trying to intercept the drop planes.

B. FRIENDLY FORCES

We are jumping as part of the first wave. The second wave will arrive approximately an hour later with the third wave an hour after that. While it is feasible that we may encounter other sticks, we each have our objectives and any contact will be in passing.

The 422nd Night Fighter Squadron is providing air cover for the operation. While their primary mission is the defence of the drop flights, they can also be called upon to drop some bombs or strafe ground targets with their cannon.

Essentially, we're on our own.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3. EXECUTION

A. Objective Overview

Mission Intent:

Our mission parameters are to eliminate 3 German Supply Depots and disrupt any and all German units we encounter along the way. Targets of Opportunity are to be engaged at all times unless doing so will compromise the main mission.

Ground Forces Task:

1. Insert into the AOR via C-47 para-drop at the designated DZ

2. Set up Platoon CP at the marked location to facilitate supply drops

3. Eliminate supplies and vehicles in Le Bray

4. Eliminate local area 2nd Echelon HQ East of Le Bray

5. Eliminate marked supply dump to the East of the AOR

6. OPTIONAL. If you can, eliminate the forward artillery battery overlooking Omaha beach to the North West of the AOR

Air Corps Task:

Condor - Insert the platoon at the designated DZ. Remember the drop should be as slow as possible above 150m AGL. The drop will not be possible below this altitude and a go around will probably end in failure and death. If possible, get in formation with the other drop flights as this will help increase your chances of survival through the drop run.

Banshee - Protect the drops by maintaining air superiority. CAS to be delivered as requested but only if it does not impede your primary task.

B. Intel Package

AOR Overview:

AOROverview.jpg

Note the Bocage terrain. This will allow us to maintain surprise for longer but will limit our movements as we have to find gaps in the hedges. Roads offer a clear transit route but you can bet the Germans are thinking the same thing.

West Flank Detail:

westflankdetail.jpg

Our first priority should be to secure our designated Rally Point/CP. This is where the USAAF will be dropping our supplies so we need to control this if we want resupply

Objective Detail:

objectiveDetail.jpg

These are our main objectives. Le Bray is a small garrison hub housing resupply convoys for the forward artillery batteries. The local German units are commanded from a purpose built HQ location to the East of Le Bray. Finally a supply dump has been formed East of the HQ to allow faster movement of supplies to the Eastern flank defences. We need to eliminate all supplies and vehicles in these areas. Furthermore, cutting the transport network at these major junctions will stifle any movement of reserves toward the beaches. OBUA will be difficult under night time conditions so remember to use your mortar teams illumination shells to help visibility.

Major Target of Opportunity:

TOODetail.jpg

If you can manage it, there is a major TOO to the North West of Le Bray. This artillery battery could cause untold damage to the beach assault. If we can kill it we can help those boys in the 1st get to shore.

Notes:

This mission features the realism features discussed by myself and Luke over the course of creating this campaign. To that end you will find the following changes to our usual setup:

  • First and foremost we're airborne "WE'RE MEANT TO BE SURROUNDED!". This means that supplies can be hard to come by. Do not shy away from the idea of stealing weapons from the enemy if needed. Historically the airborne divisions trained on captured German weapons for this exact eventuality.
  • Squad Leaders and Fire Team Leaders are the only people with radios. There are no personal radios issued. Stick to your team and pay attention to your NCOs.
  • AT weapons are poor at best. This is true to life. Remember your tank hunting tactics and outflank the target, engaging it from the rear or sides. A frontal hit has little chance of penetrating the armour. You also have explosives at your disposal to bait and ambush vehicles. If all else fails, find and liberate an AT Gun. Also remember that it is easier to get the crew to dismount than it is to make the tank blow up. A tank with no crew is just as useless as one that is burning. Don't get hung up on complete destruction.
  • As airborne we carry slightly different weapons. To that end the grenadier carries the Browning Automatic Rifle as light suppression fire support for his team.
  • Each team also contains an M1919 .30cal LMG. This is tripod mounted and the AG/AR buddy team must set up at each halt. Once set up however it offers a great boost to team firepower.
  • No GPS. If you struggle with map reading, now is the time to get help. Map tools and compass have been provided to assist with navigation but this doesn't mean anything if you don't know how to use them.
  • No NVGs. The weather has been set up to make this easier but you will still have to deal with low light conditions, especially in buildings and towns. Remember mortars carry illum and fire creates light.

Operation: Sugar Rush

Terrain: Tanoa

Weather: Thunder

Forecast: Clear

Time: 08:45

Situation

NATO & US forces have liberated half of the Tanoa archipelago pushing CSAT forces down to the south eastern island.

Fearing being cornered, CSAT is launching a dangerous assault at an attempt to take the NATO forces unaware by striking at the heart of the island to recapture a strong point (The sugar factory).

Heavily outnumbered and outgunned The remnants of the CSAT presence in this island chain are required to make the best use out of there remaining assets to succeed.

Enemy Forces

  • US Naval vessels are parked off the western shore and pose a massive AA threat to our air units.
  • NATO ground forces have set up all along the front and locked down most fortified positions meaning reinforcements aren't too far away from anywhere on the front.
  • Air bases in the blue zone are occupied by AAA and USAF fighters and helicopters are on standby and will most likely be harassing our air units throughout the op.

Mission

1 - 1 will begin down in the South East at HQ Mercury from which AAC will be airlifting using multiple Y - 32 aircraft to carry the infantry in vehicles to the LZ along the dotted line to avoid AAA. Upon arrival at the LZ infantry will either be para dropped in their vehicles or they will be landed dependant on the situation. The infantry's main objective is to recapture the Sugar Mill but however will need to clear the town of Tanouka to avoid being encircled.

Once captured the mission is complete however if time permits there is a Tertiary objective to capture an enemy FOB nearby to the main airfield.

AAC will begin, once 1 - 1 has been dropped off, by destroying any reinforcements sent to Tanouka during 1-1's assault. While doing this enemy fighters will be dispatched and AAC must also maintain air superiority at all costs.

It is recommended that aircraft steer well clear of the US naval forces to avoid a hail of fire coming up at them as all ships will be heavily armed to protect the USS Freedom.

20180524214342_1.jpg

Area Report

Both objectives for 1-1 will be close together so expect compacted enemy groups.

Movement from the LZ to Tanouka offers plenty of cover until you are within afew hundred meters of town which it then becomes open.

From the Mill to FOB Diesel is a long stretch of road with low amounts of cover however it is unlikely enemies will have fortified this open space.

Reports show that to the north there is a mechanised Squad, to the West a Motorised detachment and to the south an armoured detachment.
