Operation Enduring Freedom - Campaign

Finally completed a full campaign with 12 playable missions in one. Should give us plenty to do for at least 8 weeks.

Operation Enduring Freedom

In response to the attacks on September 11 2001 US & UK forces began a joint crusade on terror in Afghanistan.

The Takistan province is located 200Km West of Kabul where allied forces have set up Bagram Air Base.

Operating out of this base the Infantry have 11 tasks to secure the province and clear out the terror threat.

AAC forces have 1 task however will be working closely with infantry in providing CAS, Aerial insert, Resupply, Mine-sweeping or artillery support.

Many of these missions will continue after the initial objective has been completed either from gathering intel or from events in mission.

You are free to choose what assets are taken, Bagram is fully equipped however the missions do come with recommended ways of tackling them.

IMPORTANT- The Squad leader has control over what tasks are selected as many of these missions overlap. From the SQL Mission room all you have to do is walk into the 'bays' marked on the map & CTab. Once you walk in a message will appear in the top right saying if it is activated.

There are also time modifiers that you can trigger repeatedly if you so wish to play at a different time.

Note, ONLY the Squad Leaders position will trigger any of these so you dont have to worry about people trying to mess it up.

Vehicles are marked also on the map and are parked in class order. Important vehicles to note are the;

  • MHQ- Humvee located on its own on the side of SQL mission room
  • Foxtrot Target Vehicle- This is the truck that NEEDS to arrive at Foxtrot objective
  • Golf Supplies- This is the 3 containers that are to be delivered to Golf Objective

Mission 19/01/19

You know the drill gents. No set mission for today, but I'm sure we'll find something to spend the evening on.

If you have an op you'd like to replay, please let us know.

Also, @PARKER fixed his Rise of Liberation missions. As far as I know, @slayer also has an untested Saturday Op lying around.

Captive Tigris Redux

MAP: Malden 2035

MISSION DTG: 12/01/19 1900hrs (GMT)

OPORD: Captive Tigris

WEATHER: Light fog and cloud

FORECAST: Slowly Clearing

START DTG: 28/05/2008 0400 Local 

START LOCATION: Alongside USS Freedom, South of Moray Island, Off the West coast of Malden

======================================================================================= 

1: Mission Overview 

10 days ago, 47th Brigade of the Takistani Army declared it's independence from it's parent nation and seized control of the island of Malden where the unit was garrisoned. The brigade commander, Colonel Aziz, issued a formal public statement claiming that his unit has been completely betrayed by his country as the Takistan/US peace talks regarding the Cold War draw to a conclusion. Aziz went on to state that he and his men would defend their new country with their lives if necessary but hopes that the international community would come to recognise their independence. This is a huge problem for the Takistani administration since the 47th is one of the premier Takistani infantry formations, recently augmented with a flight of Mi-24D helicopters, several T-72 tanks and a platoon of ZSU-23-4 "Shilka" air defence platforms. Perhaps more embarrassing for the Takistanis is the fact that the 47th have recently taken command of the first shipment of the next generation ZSU-35 "Tigris" air defence tanks and a squadron of brand new MiG-29SM fighters.

The UN have responded with diplomatic sanctions and deployed a humanitarian force from the Republic of Chernarus. Aziz was welcoming of the UN personnel and opened his borders with no questions asked stating that "We are not barbarians, we genuinely want a fresh start away from the US backed puppet government that has polluted our beloved Takistan". In keeping with this ethos, Aziz has raised at least 2 companies of militia from the local populace.

3 days ago Aziz broadcast another public statement claiming that the Chernarussians were using their position with the UN to spy on his organisation and demanded that the UN leave the country. This was met with international condemnation with NATO declaring that if Aziz was not open and honest about his coup then they would seek permission for military intervention. Aziz retaliated by attacking the UN compound in Chapoi and taking a number of hostages. The UN have declared this a state of emergency and have given NATO a mandate to liberate the island and free the UN prisoners if Aziz does not back down.

The USS Freedom Carrier Group with elements of the 22nd Marine Expeditionary Unit have made full speed to Malden and are now within strike range.

The deadline for the release of the prisoners passed 2 hours ago.

======================================================================================= 

2: Specific Mission Parameters 

MARSOC Raider Team 16 will deploy ahead of the main USMC assault to eliminate a concentration of air defences overlooking the main invasion path. If not eliminated this position will decimate the USMC landing force and make air operations almost impossible.

The mission has 3 parameters:

  • Locate and eliminate any and all air defences and artillery positions in the region of La Pessagne either with own weapons or directed airstrike
  • Locate and extract UN prisoners believed to be held within one of the camps around La Pessagne
  • Assist the landings by out flanking the beach defences at Lolisse and directing airstrikes against critical targets

Carrier Air Wing 11 and 22nd MEU ACE will provide logistic, medical and fire support to the operation. By squadron those tasks are:

  • VF-101 "Grim Reapers" - Combat Air Patrol to counter the MiG-29 threat. If required can deploy GBUs to support MARSOC 16 as directed by HQ
  • VMA-231 "Ace of Spades" - SEAD and CAS as directed by 16MARSOC
  • VAQ-141 "Shadowhawks" - Electronic Attack Support to the SEAD effort
  • HMLA-369 "Gunfighters" - Tactical Logistics and Recon Support
  • HMH-466 ""Wolfpack" - Heavy Logistics Support

======================================================================================= 

3: Intelligence 

The island has become a fortress with major troop concentrations on most coastal bluffs. The main airstrip is also the home of a small squadron of Su-25 attack planes and the MiG-29 squadron previously issued to the 47th. We have no intel on whether these are operational or not:

20170707133554_1.jpg

16MARSOC AOR. Note there are 5 camps in total including the Forward Battery, Fire Control Post, Main Battery, Flank Protection and the A2 Echelon. A nearby reserve camp will more than likely respond to any incursion so expect OPFOR reinforcement from the East:

20170707133612_1.jpg

Initial insertion will be by Mk V SOC into the Vigny Ravine. Strike Fighters from VMA-231 will also be operating to destroy OPFOR radar facilities giving us the chance to sneak in undetected. This ingress will bring 16MARSOC into strike distance of the Fire Control Post so this should be hit first to prevent a close range counter attack:

20170707133623_1.jpg

The Fire Control Post consists of a prefabricated military camp with local housing assumed to be used as billeting:

20170707133034_1.jpg

The Forward Battery is a small encampment to the North East of the Fire Control Post. This base is largely purpose built around an old clifftop chapel. Photo recon appears to show the presence of an established ZSU-23 network and a battery of artillery, possibly Grad or Scud systems:

20170707132920_1.jpg

The Main Central Battery appears to be using an old disused coastal defence fortification outside the town of La Pessagne itself. The town is the biggest settlement in the region so we expect the town to be the main OPFOR billet:

20170707133239_1.jpg

The Southern Flank is protected by what appears to be a small Patrol Base located in an old goat farm. Note what appears to be vehicle sized cam netting:

20170707133310_1.jpg

A2 Echelon appears to have an operational HLS with what looks like a QRF Mi-24. We expect this location to contain a decent sized supply cache that would be a decent target of opportunity:

20170707133357_1.jpg

The coastal defences at Lolisse appear to focus around an old abandoned military base from the 1985 Guba Insurrection. If you get a chance, re-locate to this front and help the boys on the beach out. Your primary task must be completed first:

20170707133436_1.jpg

======================================================================================= 

4: Coordination 

Platoon Radio Net: 50.1 

Air Net: 50.2

AAC Net: 50.3

Squad radio net as directed by COC. 

======================================================================================= 

5: Logistics 

16 MARSOC:

  • 16 MARSOC has no organic supply chain. All logistics needs are to be passed through HMLA-369 or HMH-466

VF-101 "Grim Reapers":

  • 4x F-14D Tomcat

VMA-231:

  • 4x AV-8b II Harrier Plus

VAQ-141 "Shadowhawks":

  • 2x E/A-18G Growler

HMLA-369 "Gunfighters":

  • 3x UH-1Y Venom

HMH-466 ""Wolfpack":

  • 1x CH-53 Sea Stallion

======================================================================================= 

Notes:

While the mission uses conventional "Raven" re-insertion, players will respawn in a hangar on the Northern Island. The MHQs will auto activate at mission start allowing players to teleport from the respawn point to the carrier for reinsertion. MHQ-1 is the USS Freedom Aircraft Carrier. MHQ_2 is the USS Liberty Destroyer.

1-1 Alpha and 1-2 Alpha are the designated boat crews with each SOC carrying a whole squad. PLTHQ element is aboard the 1-1 SOC. Given our usual attendance this will put everyone on board one boat. There should be sufficient diversion to allow you to land safely but you should man the weapon stations just in case.
