Could you be a Faction Commander?

May 29, 2013 sliabh Game NewsRionegro EscalationUnit information

You are the commander of 2 platoon sized units which are organised into 9 sections. In 30 minutes a three vehicle convoy with vital supplies will arrive for you to escort down the road through your AO.

Area of Operations

Area of Operations

There is an enemy position to the north. This is the base of operations for 30-40 soldiers, though the numbers there will depend on how many are out on patrol or operations at any time. There is an enemy held sanger alongside the road which will have to be cleared to allow the vehicles safe passage. You have a sniper team hidden opposite the sanger, and they have observed 10-15 enemy troops in position there.

There is a village in the west. The last patrol you sent there was nearly wiped out by unknown forces. It is unclear whether these were the enemy or members of the village militia.

You have three sections available for immediate action at your base. Another 2 sections have just returned from patrol and need time to eat and rearm before going back out. One of your unit commanders is in the far side of hill 113 with two more sections. The forest and hill have disrupted radio comms however and you have lost radio contact with them.

The convoy is due here shortly, and you have 90 minutes to get it to the end of the road. What do you do?

      Sorry for the split post
      My Most Probable course of action (MPCOA)
      I leave one section on stand too at HQ, while two returning sections recoup, Send two remaining sections out as a patrol with ammo and comms to link up with lost two sections North of hilltop 113
      Their Mission:
      To move NW to FUP at rear to Sanger at (x) Hour and Assault to and destroy all enemy at Sanger with fire support/assistance of Sniper team. Once OPFOR captured/destroyed move Platoon Plus North of Sangar to Point (X) and form a protective screen for Vehicles.
      Once objective is complete, send sniper team to area south of Village to gather Intel, assuming adequate forces available, form up remaining forces and sangar and send fighting patrols to capture or kill unknown combatants
      Course of action (COA) to be determined as events unfold.

      in meantime, I send one section as a standing patrol to observe Right flank from Point 113 E/ SE
