Operation Sackville

Climate
Op Start: 04:30 - 24th of February '91
Current Weather: Dry
Future Weather: Dry

Geographical Overview
Map: @twc_al_jahra
Relief: Mostly flat, with very gradual elevation differences

Base Grid: 545 933

Conflict Overview
Iraqi forces have invaded and annexed Kuwait for a myriad of political reasons under rulership of Saddam Hussein. During the hostile takeover, British forces attempted to extract diplomatic personnel and most secret information from their embassy to no avail. Determined to redeem themselves on the international stage as a major player, Margaret Thatcher dramatically increased British contribution to Desert Shield as a direct response to the embarrassment.

7th Armoured Division "Desert Rats" have been deployed in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia since D-Day of Desert Shield. As part of that deployment the 16th/5th Queens Royal Lancers Medium Reconnaissance 'A' Squadron have been placed in fighting state and supplemented with extra manpower & equipment for war establishment. 

Following poor reception to economic sanctions placed upon Iraq and repeated Iraqi military excursions into Saudi oil fields, Desert Shield has turned to combat phase Desert Storm.

Recent Events
After an extensive month and a half of coalition aerial bombardment, high command have deemed it an appropriate time to involve ground forces and liberate Kuwait. US forces are meant to spearhead the attack into the south of Kuwait from Saudi Arabia with British forces spread throughout assisting. 

However, wanting to redeem their capability as a force, British high command has tasked 7th Armoured Division among others with spearheading an attack into the west of Kuwait. The desire is to envelop the remaining Iraqi forces, and prevent their retreat back into Iraqi soil. 

16th/5th Queens Royal Lancers Medium Reconnaissance 'A' Squadron who have been for the previous 10 days providing artillery corrections and engaging Iraqi observation points, are to be attached to the main assault with four objectives tasked to them. To maintain momentum rolling logistics are to be used, which means at dawn the initial objective is expected to be taken with what supply we currently have. Conducting full resupply would hamper the overall mission execution time, and potentially allow for Iraqi resistance to harden or at worse, escape.

1Up
Battalion has specified an operational area of conduct for our squadron, with some key enemy positions along the route. There are several Iraqi elements in reserve, so there's a strong possibility of counter-attack. Aerial bombardment of the forward observation would be caught on radar, and give up the element of surprise. Battalion hopes to maintain the element of surprise up until the assault on the enemy front-line. 

Objectives
Objective 1: Destroy enemy forward observation posts before they can alert their forces of the assault
Objective 2: Penetrate and clear enemy front line
Objective 3: Penetrate and clear enemy secondary line
Objective 4: Destroy enemy artillery emplacement and forward command post
