Operation VASBYT
By: [TWC] Sarge


Force-Outline:
Era: WW2
Forcetype: Armoured
Vehicles: 2 x Crusader Mk. III, 3 x Sherman III, 6 x Valentine Mk. II
Attachment: Matilda Tank

Situation-Outline:
Operation Start: 05:40, 27 October 1942
Current Weather: Clear
Future Weather: Clear
Map: El Alamein

Conflict Overview:
British Morale is at an all time low after numerous recent Axis victories in North Africa however the Second Battle of El Alamein is shaping up to be a turning point in the war for North Africa and the possible end of effective Axis power in the region.

Recent Events:
General Claude Auchinleck has been sacked as Commander-in-Chief Middle East Command and replaced by Montgomery to lead the Eight Army. Rommel has sent his Afrika Korps in an attack to try push the Allies out of El Alamein but has so far been repulsed through ferocious fighting and the attack has stalled. Intelligence reports the Panzer Armee is low on fuel and the time is ripe for a breakthrough.

TWC Platoon of the 2nd Armoured Brigade is to spearhead this breakthrough with new Sherman Tanks from the US and their faithful Valentine Mk 2's. The broad objectives are to breakthrough the weakened German positions under Artillery fire and to eliminate any and all remaining armor in the area. Due to the low fuel reserves Rommel is focused on fortifications as he cannot hope to manuever to engage enemy armour in the open. Expect Armoured reserves to counterattack wherever possible and for defensive German positions to be heavily fortified.

Important Note:
The attack is to begin at 06:00 with British Artillery beginning the barrage earlier. The Platoon is to move under the cover of this rolling barrage. Wait for the smoke to start before beginning the attack. There is a small depression at the marked FUP where the platoon can wait for the commencement of the attack in cover.

Objectives:
1. Breakthrough German Fortifications.
2. Hold the breach to allow friendly units to fill the gap.

Eliminate Enemy Armour to the North of the South Africans.
Destroy German Positions and Supply Caches in Patrol Outpost Greenock.
Destroy the German Staging area to the east of Miteinya Ridge.
Cut off the Italian Supply Lines by hitting their strongpoint at Point Juliet.
