  3. Time for our next campaign vote! Option #1 Vietnam Campaign: Operation Lincoln Highway Security - 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 patrols along Highway 19, as well as establishing night time security for air-mobile artillery pieces which were flown into jungle clearings acting as mobile fire support bases. Option #2 Second World War: Battle of Hurtgen Forest Germany - Autumn & Winter of 1944 We will be playing the part of American Infantrymen, who entered Germany in 1944, in the Hurtgen Forest, in an attempt to outflank German forces defending their industrial heartland. American Leaders believed that their forces would be able to march quickly through the forest, and arrive on the open planes of Germany on the far flanks of a Major German Defensive Line. However very quickly it became apparent that the Germans had heavily fortified and mined the forest. The Hurtgen Forest would become a meat grinder, claiming 55,000 Americans, and being the longest running battle that the U.S Army has ever been engaged in, to this day. The Battle was characterized by vast minefields, constant artillery barrages in the dense forest causing tree bursts, patrols through heavy fog, raids between front lines, large hill assaults through barren World War 1-esque battle fields. The dense forest prevented allied Air Support, allowing the Germans to utilize heavy tanks in a defensive posture.

The Vietnamese forces on the eastern island have dug in and are determined to hold onto every inch of ground. They patrol the shores of the island heavily and have a large system of anti aircraft emplacements making a frontal assault from the water or air very difficult. 1st Platoon will infiltrate the island under the cover of darkness and will clear the southern half of the Anti-Aircraft network in preparations for an ariel assault of the airfield next week. a.

We believe that their few remaining armored vehicles have pulled back with their Viet Cong counterparts to a small fortress on the northern tip of the Island, where they are getting supplied by Sea. This Fortress is very heavily garrisoned. In an effort to thin their ranks, we will be conducting an ambush on the VC infantrymen who often travel to the local villages at night to visit with their families and gather food. We will set up an ambush on the northern side of Taboko Village, using nightfall to get into position. The VC often leave their villages and head back to their strong points just before the sun rises. After eliminating any military aged males that exit the village at sunup, 1st Platoon will sweep the village, then call for resupply after the village is secure. From there 1st Platoon will head north and launch an assault on the last Communist Stronghold on the Island. It is believe that a few armored vehicles have retreated and are in the stronghold. It is also believed that the enemy possess light anti-air craft guns, such as twin 51mm DSHK emplacements. a.

  13. WARNING ORDER Operation Comanche III 01 ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ SITUATION TIME APR 14 1972 @ 1900 EST (0600 IGT) WEATHER: 75F (27C); Fog; Overcast; Wind 1kn NNE; Dawn 0600 IGT; Dusk 1800 IGT In the afternoon hours of April 6th 1972, North Vietnamese Forces launched the largest offensive since Tet in 1968. With the help of local guerrilla, NVA Forces simultaneously launched offensive on every major South Vietnamese Installation and Provencal capitals with large amounts of Russian supplied T-34-85's & T-55. NVA Forces have also utilized their small amount of MiG-21s & AN-2 Colt Aircraft. Control of Pulau Island was handed over to South Vietnamese Forces in December 1971. Since then revolutionary sentiment has been growing due to the lack of action by the South Vietnamese Forces. We believe that over the four month period large caches of supplies, armored vehicles, heavy artillery, and Surface to Air Missiles were smuggled onto the island & used during the offensive. Only a single Platoon of ARVN forces managed to evade capture and be evacuated before the Island fell. All others are believed to have been captured and executed; Viet Cong hit squads also managed to execute a vast majority of the civil officials residing in the cities and villages. We have lost complete control of the Island chain. Alpha Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment is to accompany the 4th Battalion, 147th ARVN Marine Regiment and regain control over the island. ARVN Marine Reconnaissance platoon has landed on the southern most tip of Pulau Monyet and begun conducting clandestine reconnaissance of the island. According to their intel, the majority of NVA forces have left the Island to assist with the offensives on the mainland. Control of the Island has been handed over to the NLF, while small contignents of NVA Forces remain to operate and guard the Airfield and Surface to Air Missile installations, which now cover a majority of the island and block the ability to use our fixed wing assets to neutralize Vietnamese Hard points. We are still able to utilize our rotary wing aircraft as long as they operate below 30 Meters from the ground (10 Meters above the Canopy). Since this overlapping system of Surface to Air Missiles has been installed on the Islands, it is believed that two Russian MiG-21's have landed on the Island and intend to operate within the heavy cover of the Surface to Air Missile batteries. a.
