Following the successful separatist movement of ethnic Russians on the island of Altis and a referendum which resulted in the annexation of Altis to Russia, the Russian Federation has landed the 67th Guards Motorized Rifle Battalion on the island. International observers have condemned both the tactics used and Russian involvement and the dubious results of the referendum, thus giving weight to making this an illegal invasion.
A NATO task force led by the USS Liberty and Khe Sanh has successfully landed the USMC 2nd Tank Battalion (Iron Horse) onto the Southern Peninsula of Altis in a surprise landing, however they advance has been halted on the land bridge to the rest of Altis, which has been heavily mined and obstructed and to make matters worse is under regular bombardment by Russian multiple-rocket artillery (BM-21).
A substantial air defence umbrella has been set up by the Russians at the centre of which, is an SA-20 system guarding the Russian Artillery.
Command has ordered Zulu-Alpha to find and destroy the Russian BM-21 battery delaying 2nd Battalion’s advance and destroying the SA-20 system hindering air cover.
A. Enemy Forces:
An artillery battery belonging to the 67th Guards Motorized Rifle Battalion of 4 to 6 BM-21’s is believed to be operating in your mission AO, West of the minefield, around the mountain of Agios Panagiotis. They’re SOP has them operating a mix of both well concealed and mobile launchers.
EW aircraft has determined that the SA-20 system is operational in the same area, along with 2 to 3 Tunguskas providing closer range air defence mix with the SA-20. An SA-20 battery has a single Radar, that when disabled will also disable the several launchers slaved to it. Trailer trucks will also be nearby, however, they are not important to destroy.
The enemy is not expecting an attack in that area, so only rear guard infantry is deployed to support and protect the air defence and artillery, however, they are on high alert and will likely patrol the entire area. Enemy infantry is equipped with small arms, Iglas and only a few of them will have NVGs.
B. Friendly Forces:
The 2nd Tank Battalion has a tank platoon and several mechanized sections overwatching the mined land bridge. Their engineering team, callsign Sledge, is attempting to clear the minefield and barricades and have set up a bunker nearby that they can take cover in whenever enemy rounds fall near them. They are in direct radio communication with Dragon’0 and 4, so will be able to be warned without delay when enemy rounds are incoming and when it’s clear to resume their work.
The USS Liberty – information with the USS Khe Sanh – is where Zulu-Alpha is stationed, along with a Kighthawk and 2 Speed boats available for use. The Liberty’s gun and cruise missiles are also at Zulu-Alpha’s disposal. The USS Freedom is several KM further out at sea, where an F/A-181 (callsign Reaper) is tasked with providing CAS for Zulu-Alpha
