Map: @lingor_a3Conflict Overview:
Lingor, an island populated predominantly by Hispanics, located in the Caribbean Windward Islands, was the subject of a coup and civil war approximately 4 years ago. The British-aligned government was quickly overthrown by General Ramon Elvira, who proceeded to align himself with Cuba and the Soviet Union. The small military received significant portions of communist aid, worrying the nearby island nations. After pleas from British banks who had invested large sums in the island, Margaret Thatcher maneuvered for intervention. American diplomatic objections were overcome by an invitation of American units to support the invasion. Recent Events:
The British task force has arrived off the east coast of Lingor, poised to strike. Overnight, a British unit seized a small airstrip, used by local drug runners. The main invasion force is now ready to land. Hostile forces have multiple gun batteries overlooking waterways, slowing potential force deployment and diminishing their logistical capacity.
Furthermore, command hopes the war can be ended quickly by striking at, and occupying the islands largest city; Maruko. Important targets in the harbour, the presidential palace, and the airport. While the airport and harbour should improve our logistical situation, seizing the presidential palace may allow us to capture important government officials, or General Elvira himself. Objectives:
1. Seize the batteries overlooking the waterways.
2. Seize the Maruko Harbour.
3. Seize the Maruko Presidential Palace.
4. Seize the Maruko International Airport.Situation OPFOR:
