1. Our first objective is to intercept an enemy motorised platoon on its way towards the front line in the south west. Intel has gained the route that the convoy will be traveling. We will have limited time from when we get out of the plane to set up the ambush, so act fast and get in position. Expect URAL trucks and light APC.
2. The French position in the south west is under constantly artillery fire, making it almost impossible for them to break through the Soviet line. We are to move to the city of Rabisha, capture the town and the artillery position. This will give the French an advantage at the Soviet line to the south.
3. As the last objective we are to move to the Soviet town of Gramada. The city is important to the NATO forces and will be our last objective before holding our advance. The Soviet forces have set up a small airfield to the west of town. Capture the town and the airfield, this will limit the Soviet’s ability to keep their helicopters and CAS planes in the air.
