With the collapse of the Soviet Union and the increasing ineptness of the Russian Federation to protect the ethnic Russian minorities in the newly independent Chernarussian Republic the Russians, together with the remnants of the KSČLR (Communist Party of the Chernarussian Peoples Republic) formed the ČDKZ (Chernarussian Movement of the Red Star, colloquially known as Čedaki). They have demanded independence for the region of South Zagoria, Chernogora, Trans-Bumaya and the Belozersk region and armed themselves with left over equipment from the Red Armies troops in Chernarussia.
With NATO opening up to Chernarussia it has decided to offer aid in fighting the Chedaki. The initial commitment of military advisors and equipment soon proved to be of little help against the well armed and well trained Chedaki. To save face in the New World after the collapse of the USSR NATO has commited increasingly more ressources to the Green Sea region and has recently deployed American, British and German ground forces to the immediate coastal areas. Initially intended to only be a show of force, the CDFs dire state has led the NATO Command to take a more active part in the developing Chernarussian War.
The Precedent for this intervention was laid down during Operation STENWICK, when British NATO forces pushed back the troops of the ČDKZ from the Tulga area, which prompted a further retreat to Pass Oreshka and Dolina. The British losses during this operation remain controversial in the United Kingdom and the public opinion is divided between further intervention or deescalation and retreat. Generally speaking however, it doesn't seem like the Chernarussian War will be resolved peacefully any time soon.Recent Events
Loosing large strips of land in the south-east which furthermore were inhabited by ethnic russians, the ČDKZ is out for revenge. This has come in the form of a large armoured push south of the prominent airfield. While it is not confirmed were these tanks have come from a likely supplier are crime lords in the Russian North-Zagoria region. While President Yeltsin denies such claims, it is clear that the Russian government exercises effectivly no control over these regions and it's Red Army warehouses.
This armoured push not only paralysed the CDF forces in this area it also makes the airfield operational for the ČDKZ. Possesing only insufficient air-defences in South Zagoria, the CDF is faced with both enemy superiority in the air and enemy tank forces on the ground. While their own tanks are beeing scrambled with haste, the CDF has called on NATO to bail them out. NATO has recognised, that the momentum this offensive posseses could cut off the coastal supply routes from the east, thus threatening to cut off all of South Zagoria. As such a counterattack against both the airfield and the armoured force by the newly formed 'Taskforce Jacob' has been authorised. We are the airborne element of this Taskforce, conducting the attack on the airfield.Objectives
- PRIOTITY: Destroy or disable any enemy helicopters at the airfield.
- PRIORITY: Clear the central facilities of the airfield.
- PRIORITY: Destroy any repair facilities in the north-west of the airfield.
- Await the report from the armoured element 'Bufallo', whether or not to evacuate the airfield.Situation ČDKZ
