Platoon MortarSituation-Outline:Operation Start:
00:00 08/06/1980Current Weather:
After a communist coup unseated Iceland's democratically elected leader. It was revealed that the USSR had been feeding the rebels weapons, equipment and vehicles in the hopes this would be successful and they could wrestle Iceland away from the control of NATO. NATO Forces have moved in to intervene and bring freedom to the strategically located Island once more while Soviet resupply vehicles and troops destined to garrison the island are enroute to secure the communist hold on the island.Recent Events:
HMS Invincible was the nearest to respond to the situation and has moved into position to assault the island. However, stormy weather has limited air support and due to the rapidly approaching Soviet reinforcements, it was decided to go ahead with the invasion regardless of the risks.
1st "TWC" Platoon is to hit Fox Blue with 2nd Platoon hitting Fox Green at the same time in order to disable a known Naval Battery before the storm abides and it can target HMS Invincible. An AA stronghold at the nearby Military airfield has also been identified to be destroyed in order to allow air support and troop movement once the storm abates. Lastly, Communist forces have holed up in the Capital of Thirsk after defeating the small garrison there and need to be cleared out.Intelligence:
This coup has been backed by the Soviet's and been in the making for a while, expect trained rebels who have been well equipped and apparently well led.
A NATO Counter-attack was expected and enemy forces have entrenched where possible in order to hold out until Soviet reinforcements arrive.
Intelligence suggests a QRF in force is hidden to the East, ready to respond in force to any attempt to hold either the Airfield or the Capital.
Finally we can expect the bay entrance to be guarded. These defences would need to be destroyed before any movement along the bay is possible.Objectives:
DESTROY Naval Batteries (Priority)
DESTROY AA Positions at the overun Military Base.
