Afghanistan - Nangarhar Province

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

 

SITUATION

OPERATION TIME: 1900 EST

 

IN-GAME TIME: 0520 IGT

 

ORGANIZATION:

1. REGION: Pachir Wa Agam District, Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan

2. WEATHER: Clear, 45F (7C); Wind 5kn NNE; Dawn 0555 IGT; Dusk 1830 IGT

3. TERRAIN: Mountainous 

 

October 7th, 2001, the first airstrikes from the United States meet their marks in Afghanistan following the September 11th attacks. In order to suppress the Taliban rule and influence, these airstrikes primarily targeted training camps and anti-air defenses in the region.  Two weeks prior, several CIA Special Activities Division officers covertly inserted into the country and established a liaison team, paving the way for the incoming American military forces.  These CIA officers would buy the support of the Northern Alliance, securing a secretive US foothold within the country.

On October 18th, ODA Teams 555 and 595, along with Air Force Combat Controllers were airlifted via Chinook from an airbase in Uzbekistan across the Hindu Kush mountain range into Afghanistan to link up with the CIA and Northern Alliance fighters. In the weeks following, the ODAs, fighting along side their Northern Alliance counterparts, captured several key cities from the Taliban, establishing a stronger foothold in the region. US Conventional forces, as well as more special operations forces began pouring into the country and supporting the invasion effort, expediting the downfall of the Taliban.

It's imperative that we continue the squelch the Taliban's influence as the months go on. 1st Platoon's objectives will be to locate and destroy three Taliban/Al-Qaeda training camps within the Dara-I-Pech Valley, kill or capture a known Taliban group commander (Mullah Abdul Zahir), and secure any intelligence within the camps.

Many special operations teams stood out as the tip of the spear in the war effort against the Taliban. Along with ODAs 555 and 595, the 1st SFOD-D, otherwise known as Delta Force or the Unit, embedded within the Northern Alliance ranks in an effort to pursue the man responsible for 9/11, Osama Bin Laden. Their work revolved around the coordination of airstrikes, reconnaissance, and hunting down other key Taliban and Al-Qaeda leaders. Here are several reference photos depicting these teams in-country:

Notes from Commander:

  • All requests for Close Air Support/Medevac/Resupply/Insertion are to go to Mako 1-6 on FREQ 60.0. Mako 1-6 will contact Rattler 1-6 on FREQ 50.0 to request an asset to assist 1st Platoon as necessary. Once the asset is in the area of Operation for Mako 1-6, Infantry can contact the bird via CAS Net FREQ 45.0 to guide in the bird/direct close air support.
  • If an infantry element is in threat of being overrun and requires immediate assistance, they may declare a "Tactical Emergency" to Mako 1-6, who will then have Rattler 1-6 redirect all available air assets to Mako 1-6's Area of Operation to prevent the unit from being overrun
