19:00 GMT

Situation-

Time: 06:07

Weather: Rain

CSAT and NATO have been at a standoff over the Chenarus territory after Blufor forces invaded to subdue insurgents. CSAT is in control of the north east airfield but NATO is spread out over the rest of the territory

 

Brief-

CSAT high command have decided to launch an assault to liberate the province using heavy weapons. Due to the nature of these they have been driven in from the North west as they are too heavy to airlift. Because of this NATO intelligence knows we are coming.

 

Mission-

20181203194728_1.jpg

1-1 will be in command of one of CSATs most modern MBTs to hold off any armour that is thrown back at us. It is imperative that this "ANVIL" call sign maintains watch for enemy vehicles as there is a high presence of NATO in the area. We are to move south through the province, set up an FOB at Lapatino and push the front line down to Pustoshka. FOB materials consist of refuel/repair containers located at AAC Airfield. It is inevitable NATO will retaliate so be aware enemy armour may move towards 1-1 from the South East.

1. HISTORY

In September 1991, severe fighting broke out in Mogadishu, which continued in the following months and spread throughout the country, with over 20,000 people killed or injured by the end of the year. These wars led to the destruction of Somalia's agriculture, which in turn led to starvation in large parts of the country. The international community began to send food supplies to halt the starvation, but vast amounts of food were hijacked and brought to local clan leaders, who routinely exchanged it with other countries for weapons. An estimated 80 percent of the food was stolen. These factors led to even more starvation, from which an estimated 300,000 people died and another 1.5 million people suffered between 1991 and 1992. In July 1992, after a ceasefire between the opposing clan factions, the U.N. sent 50 military observers to watch the food's distribution.

In August 1992, U.S. President Bush announced that U.S. military transports would support the multinational U.N. relief effort in Somalia. Operation Provide Relief dispatched Ten C-130's and 400 people Kenya, airlifting aid to Somalia's remote areas. The C-130s delivered 48,000 tons of food and medical supplies in six months to international humanitarian organizations trying to help Somalia's more than three million starving people. When this proved inadequate to stop the massive death and displacement of the Somali people (500,000 dead and 1.5 million refugees or displaced), the U.S launched a major coalition operation to assist and protect humanitarian activities in December 1992. This operation, called Operation Restore Hope, saw the U.S. assuming the unified command in accordance with resolution 794. The U.S Marine Corps landed the 15th Marine Expeditionary Unit in Mogadishu which secured nearly one-third of the city, the port, and airport facilities within two weeks, with the intent to facilitate airlifted humanitarian supplies.

At the Conference on National Reconciliation in Somalia, held on 15 March 1993, in Ethiopia, all fifteen Somali parties agreed to the terms set out to restore peace and democracy. Yet, by May it became clear that, although a signatory to the March Agreement, Mohammed Farrah Aidid's faction would not cooperate in the Agreement's implementation. Aidid ordered SNA militia to attack a Pakistani force on 5 June 1993. The result was 24 dead, and 57 wounded Pakistani troops, as well as 1 wounded Italian and 3 wounded American soldiers. On 6 June 1993, the U.N. Security Council passed resolution 837, for the arrest and prosecution of the persons responsible for the death and wounding of the peacekeepers. On 12 June, U.S. troops started attacking targets in Mogadishu in hopes of finding Aidid, a campaign which lasted until 16 June.

On 8 August 1993, Aidid's militia detonated a remote controlled bomb against a U.S. military vehicle, killing four soldiers. Two weeks later another bomb injured seven more. In response, U.S. President Clinton approved the proposal to deploy a special task force composed of 400 U.S. Army Rangers and Delta Force operators. This unit, named Task Force Ranger, deployed to Somalia on 22 August. The force consisted of:

  • B Company, 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment
  • C Squadron, 1st Special Forces Operational Detachment-Delta (1st SFOD-D)
  • A deployment package of 16 helicopters and personnel from the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment (160th SOAR), which included MH-60 Black Hawks and AH/MH-6 Little Birds.
  • Navy SEALs from the Naval Special Warfare Development Group (DEVGRU)

On 21 September, Task Force Ranger captured Aidid's financier, Osman Ali Atto.

On Sunday 3 October 1993, Task Force Ranger attempted to capture Aidid's foreign minister Omar Salad Elmi and his top political advisor, Mohamed Hassan Awale. The plan was that Delta operators would assault the Olympic Hotel and secure the targets inside the building while four Ranger chalks would fast rope deploy to create a four-corner defensive perimeter around the building. Meanwhile a column of nine HMMWVs and three five-ton trucks would arrive at the building to take the entire assault team and their prisoners back to base. The entire operation was estimated to take no longer than 30 minutes.

The ground-extraction convoy was supposed to reach the captive targets a few minutes after the operation's beginning. However, it ran into delays. Somali citizens and local militia formed barricades along Mogadishu's streets with rocks, wreckage, rubbish and burning tires, blocking the convoy from reaching the Rangers and their captives. Further complications included Ranger Chalk 4 being inserted a full city block off target and more importantly Delta assaulting the wrong building initially.

At 15:42, the MH-6 assault Little Birds carrying the Delta operators hit the target, the wave of dust becoming so bad that one was forced to go around again and land out of position.

At about 16:20, one of the Black Hawk helicopters, callsign Super 61, was shot down by an RPG. Both pilots were killed in the resulting crash and two of the crew chiefs were severely wounded. SSG Daniel Busch and SGT Jim Smith, both Delta snipers, survived the crash and began defending the site.

An MH-6, callsign Star 41, landed nearby and the copilot left the helicopter and carried Busch to the safety of the Helo. SSG Busch later died of his injuries, being shot four times while defending the crash site. A CSAR team were able to fast rope down to Super 61's crash site despite an RPG hit that crippled their helicopter, Super 68. Despite the damage, Super 68 did make it back to base. The CSAR team found both the pilots dead and two wounded inside the crashed helicopter. Under intense fire, the team moved the wounded men to a nearby collection point, where they built a makeshift shelter using armor plates salvaged from Super 61's wreckage.

There was confusion between the ground convoy and the assault team. The assault team and the ground convoy waited for 20 minutes to receive their orders to move out. Both units were under the mistaken impression that they were to be first contacted by the other. During the wait, a second Black Hawk helicopter, callsign Super 64, was shot down by an RPG at around 16:40.

Most of the assault team went to the first crash site for a rescue operation. Upon reaching the site, about 90 Rangers and Delta Force operators found themselves under heavy fire. Despite air support, the assault team was effectively trapped for the night. At the second crash site, two Delta snipers, were inserted by Black Hawk Super 62. They inflicted heavy casualties on the approaching Somali mob. Super 62 had kept up support for MSG Gordon and SFC Shughart, but an RPG struck her. Despite the damage, Super 62 managed to go to the New Port and safety. When Gordon was eventually killed, Shughart picked up Gordon's CAR-15 and gave it to Super 64pilot CW3 Michael Durant. Shughart went back around the chopper's nose and held off the mob for about 10 more minutes before he was killed. The Somalis then overran the crash site and killed all but Durant. He was nearly beaten to death, but was saved when members of Aidid's militia came to take him prisoner.For their actions, MSG Gordon and SFC Shughart were posthumously awarded the medal of honour, the first awarded since the Vietnam.

A relief convoy with elements from the 10th Mountain Division, accompanied by Malaysian and Pakistani U.N. forces, arrived at the first crash site at around 02:00. No contingency planning or coordination with U.N. forces had been arranged prior to the operation; consequently, the recovery of the surrounded American troops was significantly complicated and delayed. When the convoy finally pushed into the city, it consisted of more than 100 U.N. vehicles including Malaysian forces' German made Condor APC's, four Pakistani tanks, American HMMWVs and several five-ton flatbed trucks. This two-mile-long column was supported by several other Black Hawks and Cobra assault helicopters stationed with the 10th Mountain Division. Meanwhile, Task Force Ranger's "Little Birds" continued their defense of Super 61's downed crew and rescuers.

The battle was over by 06:30 on Monday, 4 October. U.S. forces were finally evacuated to the U.N. base by the armored convoy. While leaving the crash site, a group of Rangers and Delta operators realized that there was no room left in the vehicles for them and were forced to depart the city on foot to a rendezvous point on National Street. This has been commonly referred to as the "Mogadishu Mile". U.S. forces suffered one casualty during the mile, hit by a bullet in the back.

In all, 18 U.S. soldiers were killed in action during the battle and another 73 were wounded in action.The Malaysian forces lost one soldier and had seven injured, while the Pakistanis suffered two injured. Somali casualties were heavy, with estimates on fatalities ranging from 315 to over 2,000 combatants. The Somali casualties were a mixture of militiamen and local civilians. Somali civilians suffered heavy casualties due to the dense urban character of that portion of Mogadishu.

NOTE:

This is an historical recreation. The equipment, mission flow, scenery and time of day are all designed to be as close to life as possible. That is where the manipulation of the mission ends. Everything else is down to our own performance in the field. If we do better than TF Ranger then great. If we get our asses handed to us then we have lessons to learn. The mission is not designed for us to fail nor is it designed to force historical events. It simply puts us in the boots of TF Ranger to see how well we do.

Stay on your toes, pay attention to the intel coming from C2 and we should be fine.

Patrol Of OP Pride Rock

Patrol Of OP Pride Rock

MAP: Takistan

Terrain:  Mountains, open ground, Desert

Weather: Clear

Forecast: Clear

Mission locations are based on real places but not events.

Brief

You are young solider's In the US Marines, you have been posted at COP Michigan. COP Michigan holds a vital supply route to stop the Takistani insurgents from being able to keep a foot hold deeper in to the country. This FOB  is sounded by hills so the enemy can shoot in to the compound It is advised to never be out in the open and move through the tunnels. Below is a representation of the real life area so you can get a feel of what they had to go through.

13227749_1786761734878553_8128723669875028039_o.jpg

The Starting area will look like this ^

Objectives

  • A team or two will cover a squad of marines that are going up to OP Pride rock to relieve the other soldiers on duty, once a team of 1-1 have reached the top they will then cover the marines while they their way back down to COP Michigan, Same would go for the rest of 1-1 they will need to cover the both squads that need to come down.
  • Once Every one is sorted we will need to regroup in or outside of COP Michigan mount up and we need to make our way down to where IDAP forces are giving aid to the local populous, on the way we need to keep an eye out for any combatants, and especially keep keen eyes open for IEDS as that is there weapon of choice.
  • Once we reach IDAP forces one team will hold down the Area of operation, while the other go though each building in the immediate area to just clear the area, the reason why we have to do this is because the insurgents threaten the locals to store insurgent weapons and things of that nature in there homes.
  • You can speak to the locals to find out if they have seen any insurgent presence lately.
  • Depending on that information we will continue the patrol in the surrounding villages.

AAC Objectives
