  7. WARNING ORDER Operation Medina 003 South Vietnam - I Corps - The Hai Lang Forest - October 1967 ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ SITUATION OPERATION TIME: 1900 EST IN-GAME TIME: 0230 IGT ORGANIZATION: 1. REGION: Hai Lang Forest, I Corps, South Vietnam 2. WEATHER: Clear Skies; 97F ; Wind <1kn NNE; Dawn 0415 IGT; Dusk 1900 IGT 3. TERRAIN: Jungle, Rice Paddies, Rural During last weekends operation we took a prisoner. Our South Korean attache extracted some vital intelligence. We know believe that the entire PAVN Battalion has regrouped and is preparing an immediate assault on our Company's Headquarters. This intel has been corroborated and seems to be confirmed as the locals have fled the villages in proximity to the camp. We lack the manpower & firepower to fend off the force coming our way. The Company Commander has called for immediate assistance from Battalion. The nearest friendly forces are approximately 2 hours out. Our Platoon which is the most undermanned, has been given the task of acting as a tripwire for the company headquarters. The CO has ordered our platoon to move into the enemy's axis of advance & set up an ambush. Our mission is to delay the enemy column for as long as possible, setting up ambushes in the jungle and retreating back to the camp. If we can buy enough time, QRF may just make it to Camp Striker in-time. We will be alone in the jungle without any flank security, so speed and stealth will be essential. Double down on claymores, e-tools, and flares. This will be a night-time operation, however; there should be limited visibility with the moonlight. Once we have run out of jungle, and have fallen back to the camp, make sure to radio ahead of time to avoid blue on blue. 1st Platoon will then fold into the company's defenses & prepare to hold the perimeter. a. Enemy Disposition PAVN Forces have gone to ground in the area, in the wake of our arrival Battalion Sized Element (300-400 Men) Possess Rocket Artillery tubes Possess Light Anti-Aircraft guns scattered across the countryside b. Friendly Disposition Alpha Company, 1/7th Cavalry Division c. 1960s - Rules of Engagement On order from your commander, enemy military and paramilitary forces are declared hostile and may be attacked subject to the following instructions: Positive Identification (PID) is required prior to engagement. PID is a reasonable certainty that the proposed target is a legitimate military target. If no PID, contact your next highest commander for decision. Do not engage anyone who has surrendered, or is unarmed or wounded. Any requests for fire support or close air support within 600 Meters of a civilian center must first get authorization from commanding officer. Require authorization & PID, before High Explosives are cleared within 200 meters of a village. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Maps of the Province: *How to Zoom in: Open spoiler> Right click on photo > Open image in new tab > Congrats, you can now zoom in.

  10. WARNING ORDER Operation Medina 001 South Vietnam - I Corps - The Hai Lang Forest - October 1967 ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ SITUATION OPERATION TIME: 1900 EST IN-GAME TIME: 0500 IGT ORGANIZATION: 1. REGION: Hai Lang Forest, I Corps, South Vietnam 2. WEATHER: Clear Skies; 97F ; Wind <1kn NNE; Dawn 0415 IGT; Dusk 1900 IGT 3. TERRAIN: Jungle, Rice Paddies, Rural The 1st Cavalry Division has been redeployed into I Corps, the northern sector of South Vietnam. Over the last year, the 3rd Marines & ARVN units have ceded the majority of territory in I Corps, to the PAVN. Due to lack of manpower, several key areas have fallen into enemy hands & have begun to fester with reinforcements from the North. The 1st Cavalry Division has been deployed to the area, in an attempt to recapture the Hai Lang Forest, which has been over run by PAVN Regulars. Our intelligence suggests that the 379th Battalion have established a sprawling base camp, and have been using the forest to hide & transport large stashes of arms and munitions, to the units further south & west of them. 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry has been deployed to the Hai Lang Forest. Alpha Company has landed and begun establishing Camp Striker, on the northern end of the forest. After landing and beginning construction, the company has yet to make direct contact with the enemy; however, Camp Striker has been the target of several Rocket attacks. Intelligence & manpower is limited. While patrols in the immediate vicinity have uncovered nothing but abandoned camps & villages, we know that must be ammunition dumps in the vicinity allowing for the constant resupply & redeployment of PAVN Rocket Artillery tubes. The strikes have been coming from the west, this is all that we know. The enemy possesses great mobility & have hidden the tubes back in the depths of the forest by the time our air assets drop their ordinance on their last known position. Our objective will be to sortie outside of the Camp and sweep several nearby villages & the surrounding area in an attempt to locate 1). the PAVN Ammo dumps supplying the rockets, 2). The Rocket Tubes themselves or 3). any PAVN forces operating in the area. a.
