Due to the rapid nature of this mission little intelligence has been gained. All we know is there is a supply and vehicle convoy consisting of around 8 vehicles moving from Rosche up to Neumuhle @ 2000 IGT. We suspect Neumuhle to be lightly defended, however, the town of Borg is known to have a heavy enemy presence.
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.
Given the covert nature of this operation, ISR and CAS capabilities will be available but limited. 1st Platoon may opt to carry and deploy a quadcopter-style drone with them to better establish their situational awareness prior to attack.
1st Platoon, 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment *SOF*
1st Platoon's primary objective is to into no mans land, via whichever method the platoon commander see's fit and move into the village of Neumuhle, eliminating the strong point. Destruction of vehicles, equipment and men. This will be a time critical objective.
1st Platoon's secondary objective is to move into and assault the village of Borg. Then take up positions in Borg in preparation to ambush an enemy supply convoy moving from Rosche at 2000IGT down the MSR through Katzien. Eliminate the convoy and clear the area.
1st Platoon's third objective is to repel any possible counter attack from forces moving from Rosche and fall back to Neumuhle and form a friendly strong point with support from other friendly forces.
It is imperavative that convoy DOES NOT reach Neumuhle or leave the town of Borg.
71st Assault Helicopter Company
Rattlers primary objective is to provide CTR (Close target recon) & CAS during 1st Platoon's assault.
Rattlers secondary objective is to rain fire down on the towns of Katzien and Stutensen (East of Katzien) and eliminate any vehicles and enemy forces.
Rattlers will also need to be prepared to extract 1st Platoon if needed.
Due to the intense nature of this current push, Rattlers are able to request any air frame they require.
DO NOT ENTER THE NO FLY ZONES. YOU WILL BE SHOT DOWN.
*If desired, Rattler units may opt to augment alongside Mako elements as infantry.
