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.
  • Expect the enemy to utilize grenades when in close combat.
  • Bring this in your kit         ITEM - Zippo        if you want to burn the huts
  • When burning a hut make sure to stand back, and let one person burn the hut, as to avoid friendly fire.





Recon Company, Command and Control North

Recon Team Asp will infiltrate the target box, established a fortified hilltop observation post next to San Bay Airfield. From there Asp will infiltrate the airfield and set up charges on key Anti-Air emplacements. Asp will then return to their fortified position overlooking the airfield, detonate the charges, and call in the rattler's to assist mopping up the air strip. Depending on the situation in the field, Asp will either call for extract from the OP, establish an alternate LZ, or conduct a BDA of the airstrip.
