Operation Red Inferno 003

Rosche, West Germany - 2021









1. REGION: Rosche, West Germany

2. WEATHER: Clear Skies; 50F ; Wind <1kn NNE; Dawn 0735 IGT; Dusk 1835 IGT

3. TERRAIN: Farmland, Spruce Forests

Following the failed rescue attempt of the UH-60 aircrew, 1st Platoon fled to the town of Nestau while being pursued by Soviet motorized and mechanized forces. 1st Platoon has successfully evaded Soviet forces for the time being, though it's only a matter of time before reinforcements swell into the AO and continue their search for our forces. 1st Platoon has been instructed to hold and defend the town of Nestau until friendly reinforcements arrive and secure the AO. 

Mako 6 has coordinated a resupply operation to support 1st Platoon while they attempt to hold Nestau. Rattler elements will be responsible for airdropping the resupply before daybreak and then provide close air support until 1st Platoon can be extracted by friendly forces. This operation doubles as both a coordinated rescue effort, as well as a major overarching offensive into Soviet territory by our friendly forces in the south of the AO.
