  5. WARNING ORDER Operation Enduring Freedom 005 Afghanistan - Nuristan Province - Kamdesh - 2009 ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ SITUATION OPERATION TIME: 1900 EST IN-GAME TIME: 0400 IGT ORGANIZATION: 1. REGION: Kamdesh, Afghanistan 2. WEATHER: Clear Skies; 38F ; Wind <1kn NNE; Dawn 0415 IGT; Dusk 1900 IGT 3. TERRAIN: Mountains, Arid In 2006, a US supply convoy was ambushed and destroyed on an isolated MSR running through Kamdesh, an incredibly remote area just miles from the Pakistani border. Allied Commanders identified the location and established a outlying Combat Outpost and named it after the dead commander of the convoy, Lt Keating. COP Keating was positioned in a gorge, next to a small village, river, and surrounded on all four sides by four imposing mountains, running at a 60 degree angle up from the walls of Keating. Every soldier to lay eyes on COP Keating, immediately knew that serving there would be a death sentence. For three years frustrated commanders lobbied for the COP to be abandoned due to its compromising location. Ground resupply was completely impossible due to the loss of control of Nuristan province. Due to the altitude & height of the surrounding mountains, resupply birds could only reach Keating by flying at night through the valleys to avoid anti-aircraft fire from the insurgents who controlled the passes. Due to ground fire, bad weather in the mountain passes, Often resupply flights were turned back, and Keating was left to fend for itself undermanned, exposed, and ill-equipped for days on end. By 2008, it was decided that Keating would be abandoned on October 10th, 2009. By October, Alpha Company, 3rd Battalion, 71st Cavalry Regiment, who manned Keating, were bled dry from periodic attacks and lack of resupply. They had packed the majority of the Camps supplies into large shipping containers, as they were slated to leave Keating in a week. On October 2nd, Keating's commander and a platoon of the garrison were flown to a rural town in the area to give parting advice to the Afghan elders that had worked with the coalition forces in the area, leaving Keating further undermanned. Now down to two under strength platoons and their HQ element, within the walls of Keating, American soldiers had to rely on the platoon of ANA fighters to man half of the defenses. On October 3rd, one week before US troops were to be pulled out of Keating, a battalion of Taliban fighters surrounded the camp, and launched one final massive assault in an attempt to destroy the coalition garrison at Keating. Within 45 minutes of the fighting, Taliban forces had breached the wire of Keating and set fire to the Camp. The Afghan garrison fled the camp, and the remaining American soldiers fell back to the aid station, and the mess hall preparing to make their final stand. American forces held their positions against Taliban assaults on their structures and managed to launch a series of counter attacks with only a dozen combat effective men. They managed to repel the Taliban and hold for the 7 hours that it took air support to arrive at Keating (Another 6 until QRF and Medevac finally reached the camp). Eight were killed, with another forty wounded, COP Keating a.

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. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Maps of the Province: Gun Truck I Gun Truck II Mortar Pit Photos of Keating 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. Expect the enemy to utilize grenades when in close combat. ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ MISSION 1st Platoon, A.

TERRAIN: Hills, Rural Countryside ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 1. SITUATION: Logar Province, Afghanistan, 2007. The Taliban/AQ have been waging low-intensity warfare against the Afghan government and its ISAF partners. Government establishments, as well as civilian centers have been the main victims of the insurgency in recent months and ISAF forces have also been regularly engaged by insurgent forces. Recently developed sources have discovered that the Taliban may be using the regional production of Opium/Cannabis to fund their insurgency operations. In order to quell the insurgency, ISAF forces must begin investigating the production of narcotics in the region and determine their legality. To do so, ISAF forces will need to establish stronger presence in these drug-producing regions. 1st Platoon's objective is to establish a foothold in the region by rebuilding two combat outposts in the Nefer River Valley, conducting a presence patrol through the valley and clearing a known IED-ridden compound, and meeting with a local village leader to discuss his village's production of narcotics. a. 2000s - 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.
