Operation Bald Eagle has been devised to liberate the local population of a militarized Taliban occupation in the region. The AO for this operation forms a vital artery of the local operation. The aptly named “Smugglers Pass” is used by the local militias to smuggle weapons, narcotics and soldiers throughout the surrounding territories. By cutting this vital supply line, we expect to drastically reduce their effectiveness in the area. To accomplish this, we are going to establish a new forward observation post at a strategic village, code-name Mullet.

“Welcome back to the grind soldiers. After a month back home I trust you are refreshed and excited to be back in this dust bowl for your next rotation. Well, I have some bad news for you. The militias have returned to hiding in their caves, so we’re stuck playing security to a bunch of goat herders and hemp farmers. There is the odd IED, mortar or sniper, but the guerrilla’s know we have them with their tails between their legs, and direct confrontation hasn’t happened in weeks.
So, on to the briefing…. *ahem* http://zulu-alpha.co.za/forums/topic/operation-welcome-home/
As a result of community input, we are going to be starting games at 20h00, form up at 19h00, which is half an hour earlier than we always did in the past. This is because we want to avoid late nights and 30 minutes can help a lot in with that.
For those that don’t keep up with us on our Slack or have played with us recently, we are closed for the holiday and will be open again on the 17th of January 2017 (a Tuesday).
Thanks to everyone in the community who helped out and also everyone who stayed with the community over the year and to all the new players.
We wish you a merry Christmas (or happy holidays) and a happy new year!

Recently there has been increased hostility and military activity in Russia following a deteriorating political situation between Russia and NATO. Some time last week Russian regular forces broke the cease-fire in the Crimean peninsula, and proceeded to move deeper into Ukrainian territory despite the NATO agreements in place. NATO, bound by a recent security accord, has no choice but to assist Ukraine in the invasion of her sovereign territories.
Zulu-Alpha was stationed in a military base near Pisky, providing training to Ukrainian drafts on behalf of NATO, while the bulk of the Ukrainian military forces are engaged in the Crimean Peninsula. While providing training, ZA only has access to basic weaponry and vehicles.
NATO intelligence has identified forces mobilizing through the Southern peninsula of Belarus (NE border of Ukraine). An advance element has crossed into Ukraine along the P56 (Main Road) and set up an outpost on the P56, near the Chernobyl exclusion zone. Significant enemy AAA defenses have been identified on the border, preventing the use of any air assets.
ZA, being the only capable NATO force in the immediate area, is tasked with the identification and destruction of this outpost at all cost. Thereafter, the main road is to be mined. This setback and defense will hopefully hold the main Russian assault force back long enough for a NATO blocking force to move into position between it and Kiev.
