Scheduled for Sunday 31 May 2020
Situation Time: 16 March 2020 at 09:00.
Lighting: Moring, daytime.
Weather: 8°C, partly cloudy with light wind.
Zulu Company, Alpha Platoon is stationed at a small NATO Airfield. The unit is being deployed early in the morning with WARNORD Cold Response 2020 Phase 5 from OPORD.
The primary purpose of Phase 5 is to “support the invasion of allied troops on an airfield with combined arms”. The exercise is designed to train co-operations with friendly units in a combined arms scenario. Each group will attack and secure their own objectives marked as BLOCK A, B and C. Reinforcements from friendly units in the area can be called in if a unit is overrun during the attack.
Zulu Company, Alpha Platoon is tasked with securing BLOCK A in the southwestern corner of the Russian Airbase. The airbase is well secured with anti-air weapon systems. The anti-air weapon systems will need to be destroyed before any CAS air support can be called in. Besides the plethora of air, anti-air and ground vehicles stationed at the airbase the objective BLOCK A is speculated to host most of the Russian Special Forces, the Spetsnaz and a high ranking Major General.
Zulu-Alpha was chosen to lead the attack on the airbase, and all friendly forces will move in and continue with their objectives once ZA breaks cover. The weather conditions are neutral during this objective with daylight and low hanging clouds.
The northern region of Chernarus consists of mainly lush forests with snow-covered meadows in-between. The AO is relatively flat with dense forests surrounding the area. High peaks surround the airbase, but overall the area does not provide good cover except in the woods or inside the airbase.
A. Enemy Forces:
The Russian Ground Forces can be expected to patrol the base with teams located north, south, east and west of the station. Russian Spetnaz teams occupy the southwestern corner of the base; no reinforcements are expected. The outer perimeter is patrolled, and a high concrete wall surrounds the base.
B. Friendly Forces:
Zulu Company, Alpha Platoon is stationed at the Cold Response 2020 NATO Airfield. The British and German forces will be inserting and operating in different areas. The British Royal Army will assault BLOCK C and the German Bundeswehr BLOCK B. The friendly forces will initiate their attack on the airbase after Zulu-Alpha.

5. Author’s Notes:
I want to thank everyone for playing my mini-campaign and all the excellent feedback, this is my final phase of Cold Response 2020 and concludes my take on the military games held in Norway, although the actual Cold Response 2020 was cancelled shortly after the arrival of all the troops due to the risk of Cov-19. I hope you all enjoyed playing the missions as much as I enjoyed making them for you, and I look forward to exploring new ideas for future missions.
