Operation Build-up Whiskey Company have moved back north to rejoin the two companies of the Royal Gurkha Rifles who are deployed on the frontline with the AAF. Significant progress was made in the south and the peninsula has been mostly seized from the AAF, with C Company RGR fighting the remaining pockets of resistance. While a large amount of AAF equipment has been seized their efforts to evacuate the southern peninsula were relatively successful and it is not believed the attacks effectively crippled the Republic of Altis Air Force.
Whiskey Company is to attack the town of Telos (designated as Objective Jasper) and the nearby military base (designated as Objective Citrine). The AAF is using the military base to stage their attacks on the RGR frontline and preventing an attack on the nearby airfield.
To the south, B Company RGR will attack the heavily fortified positions the AAF hold around Anthrakia to draw the AAF from the Objective Citrine.
To the north, once Whiskey Company have made contact, A Company RGR will attack the AAF positions around Kalithea and the bay to the north preventing the AAF from moving to support.
MISSION Whiskey Company are to attack the town of Telos (designated as Objective Jasper).
