  4. Time for our next campaign vote! (Keep in mind we will do all three campaigns, you are merely choosing the order in which they are conducted) Option #1 Second World War: OSS Raids Norway, France, Italy, North Africa, French Indochina - 1940 - 1943 This Designed to be a mini-campaign that recreates several different commando raids on various Nazi & Japanese installations as well as efforts to supply, train, and work with local resistance fighters in various occupied countries. Though many of these missions were carried out by British Commandos, we will be playing the part of American operatives in the Office of Strategic Services. Option #2 Modern - Mountain Thrust Afghanistan 2006 In 2006, a platoon of British paratroopers relieved a group of American and Canadian Soldiers in Sangin Province Afghanistan, after taking several casualties. The British Paratroopers began conducting normal operations, however very quickly the situational devalued into a three month long siege with very limited support. Essentially left to fend for themselves, this Platoon of British Para's held off numerous Taliban offensives from their fortified hotel in the city center, and eventually managed to launch effective counter offensive operations dealing a killing blow to the Taliban forces in the region just before being relieved by American Forces. We will be operating as British Paratroopers, starting with only the ammo we can load into a few Boxes & what is on our persons, and with only limited mortar support until supplies can be sent in later in the campaign. Option #3 Vietnam Campaign: Operation Lincoln Pleiku 1966 This Designed to be a mini-campaign that recreates the 12 Day Skirmish in Operation Lincoln along the Cambodian Border. The Campaign will consist of the lead up and then culminating into the in the climax of the Operation, when a CH-47 full of 1st Cavalry Division troopers, was shot down & the effort to rescue the wounded survivors of the crash as they held off a significant Vietnamese assault. The Build up to the climax will involve mine clearing patrols along Highway 19 by day, as well as night time ambushes along VC controlled.

WARNING ORDER Operation Crazy Horse 001 Phuoc Tou - South Vietnam ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ SITUATION TIME: September 14th, 1966 @ 1900 EST (0600 ZUL) WEATHER: 112F (44C); Clear; Wind <1kn NNE; Dawn 0600 IGT; Dusk 1800 IGT The 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment has been deployed to Phuoc Toy Province to provide security for friendly airbases operating the area. 1st Cavalry will attempt to route out the guerrilla forces which have been conducting constant rocket/mortar attacks on Nui Dat Airbase. ARVN Forces had originally attempted to pacify the surrounding country side, however their efforts backfired and have turned the local population against the U.S. Backed South Vietnamese Government. We now believe that the communist guerrilla's have near total control of the rural villages, and have already begun to infiltrate the larger cities of Phuoc Toy province launching a massive recruitment campaign for a large scale offensive to come. a.

Any requests for fire support or close air support within 600 Meters of a civilian center must first get authorization from commanding officer. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Maps of the Province: 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. Be sure not to stray too far off the planned & assigned path, due to the high probability of undiscovered minefields. Be sure to stay within 1st Platoon's area of operation, venturing off course into 2nd or 3rd Platoon's AO could result in blue on blue. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ MISSION 1st Platoon, A.
