Conflict Overview: In Summer 2020 the Russian Federation took advantage of the chaos caused by the COVID 19 pandemic and began a campaign to regain control of ex Warsaw Pact countries which were lost during the collapse of the Soviet Union. Once these countries fell, the Russian Military turned their eyes on the Mediterranean countries with the long term objective of surrounding Turkey and gaining control of the Eastern Mediterranean.
In December 2020, the Greek Island of Altis was taken to gain a foothold in the area and provide a staging base for further campaigns in the area. NATO was initially taken by surprise by the sudden aggression of Russia but is now getting organised and preparing a counter attack across multiple fronts. The UK sent a task force to take back Altis and the surrounding islands with the overall objective of pushing the enemy back out of the Mediterranean.

Recent Events: 3 weeks ago,TWC platoon was tasked with raiding several strong points which would be problematic for the Armoured forces when they advance as well as securing a military base which contained a large proportion of the engineer forces on the island and a logistics base which contains the majority of ammunition and other supplies for RAFoA.
TWC was successful on all counts despite heavier than expected resistance at the Logistics Base and command has now tasked TWC Armoured Troop to execute a push to the main airfield. The second main aim of this push is to destroy all armoured vehicles encountered to allow the Infantry to begin mopping up remaining forces.
