Scheduled for Sunday the 14th August

Description:

1. SITUATION

Situation Time: 06:00 hrs

Lighting: No Moon, Rolling Clouds, expected Thunderstorm at 1st light, (First light around 06:15 hrs)

Weather: Clear visibility at start, Fog expected during thunderstorms

After Zulu Alpha’s first encounter with the PRPM, concerns are growing about their strength, operational procedures and their drug trafficking and black market dealings in arms and explosives. We need to perform a balancing act in order to prevent further destabilizing the country and in order to do this we need to determine the full strength of the PRPM.

From what we have gathered from observations of their combat actions, the PRPM are not as organised as the Tanoan Army but are experts at guerrilla and jungle warfare. Therefore our best course of action is to avoid engaging them in the jungle.

Due to recent PRPM offensive in Georgetown and in other parts of the main Tanoan island and due to their losses against us, the Tanoan Army has pulled their forces back to main population centers and strategic assets, particularly the Blue Pearl industrial port,the Tanoan Airport, La Rochelle and George Town and away from the more dense jungles of the interior of the island.

The Tanoan Army has reaffirmed their desire for the secret ceasefire that was had in our last operation and does not want to risk accidental engagements with US forces such as in the last operation and has therefore asked that we avoid operating near their forces. Command also desires this ceasefire as the further weakening of the Tanoan Army contradicts our campaign objectives and command desires a shifting of focus onto the PRPM and as such also has ordered that we avoid operating near the Tanoan Army.

Theatre

In accordance with our new priorities our objectives are now to maintain the balance the power of the major factions of Tanoa and to this end, Zulu Alpha has been tasked with the interdiction of PRPM drug trafficking and Arms trading.

The PRPM are currently manufacturing drugs and exporting it from the former local Tanoan Sugar Company complex at Tanouka. The cocaine fields there are fully grown and are ready to be harvested. Due to this urgency and the night time advantage given to us by the early morning, command has decided that the timing is appropriate for the action to occur immediately.

    A. Enemy Forces:

    The sophistication of weapons employed by the PRPM are not fully understood yet and according to certain sources, may be equipped with advanced man portable air defense systems from black market arms imports and the possible capturing of Tanoan Army supplies.

    The PRPM now dominates the plains at the center of the main Tanoan island, including the town of Tanouka. They are beginning to also expand their military actions to the South East parts of the main island, filling the power vacuum left by the Tanoan Army.

    The 3rd Mechanized Company which was stationed North of Harcourt’s Bridge was redeployed to the Blue Pearl Industrial port as their holding of the North side of the bridge against us was no longer of strategic relevance and the tactical position in that part of the island was untenable. This opening has now enabled a land based ingress for Zulu Alpha into the main Tanoan island.

    The bulk of the PRPM are currently made up of untrained recruits and very little is known about their defensive doctrines and what tactics they might employ to defend their assets. The best equipped and trained of the PRPM, knowns as the PRPM veterans, are located at and around key assets such as the Tanoan Sugar Company, Tanouka and other high value assets. The PRPM veterans are ideologically driven and are therefore highly motivated. The ability of the PRPM forces in the objective are to call on reinforcements is unknown, but expected.

    The head of black market operations for the PRPM, Ashneel Nazil might currently be in one villages in and around the AO, however we do not know how to identify him, other than him being a person of high standing among the PRPM forces. His elimination is to be considered an optional objective if such a suspect is identified.

    B. Friendly Forces: 

    Friendly forces are stationed at FOB Crusade.

    1) Equipment: Standard NATO equipment at start.

    2) Surveillance: None

    3) Ground Vehicles: 4x Armed Prowler, 4x unarmed Prowler, 3x HEMMT (Ammo, Repair, Fuel)

    4) Fixed Wing: None

    5) Rotary Wing: 1 x V-44 Vehicle Transport, 1x V-22 Infantry transport, 1x UH-80, 2x MH6-M

    6) Naval: 3x Assault Boats

    C. Civilian Presence: Present within the Town and Black Market, uncertain if civilians within the black market would pick up weapons to help defend the Black market. Standard ROE should be followed

     

    2. Mission

    1.  Primary: Destroy Trucks used to export drugs stationed at the Sugar company before any export can commence
    2. Secondary: Locate Arms Cache within the black market and destroy it
    3. Optional: Locate and kill Ashneel Nazil

    3. Execution

    1. Avoid operating in the areas marked as being under Tanoan Army control and stay away from their forces.
    2. Due to the likely advanced nature of PRPM air defenses and due to the fact that operations on the Tanoan main island are still to be kept clandestine, air assets are not allowed to operate over the main island.
