During last week’s patrol, Alpha Company recovered a treasure trove of enemy intelligence. Soldiers captured multiple cellphones and laptops from Russian separatists and Wagner Group PMCs. One phone had the entire ORBAT for the separatist 3rd Regiment (Russian Patriotic Union Forces), in addition to contact information for most of the regiment’s senior leaders.
The NATO Intelligence Fusion Centre has begun obtaining and exploiting enemy signals intelligence thanks to our finds. S-2 now has real-time transcripts of virtually all enemy communications in the Area of Operations, including radio, cellphone, and cyber communications. As a result, we have identified separatist command facilities on the islands of Pihlajakari and Montaja, as well as a communications post and radar site on the mainland.
In addition, 3rd Regiment commander Colonel Vaikšnoras is preparing to exfiltrate Prime Minister Šimonytė from Maksniemi County. As a result of our patrols and checkpoints, the separatists are planning to fly the PM out from Montaja Island via helicopter.
Alpha Company “War Eagles” is tasked with destroying the separatist communications post at Objective Avienos. First Platoon “Widowmakers” must destroy these facilities to diminish enemy command and control capabilities, and to prevent separatists and Wagner Group from coordinating counter-attacks or expedited movement of the PM.
First Platoon is then tasked with destroying the enemy radar site at Objective Boyarskaya. This is critical to prevent detection of our forces in the air or on sea as we move to the next objectives.
Once these positions are secured, First Platoon is ordered to move to the docks at Karsikko. Using assault boats dropped by 3CAB, the platoon is to separate into 2 sections and assault the enemy camp, AA site, and supply depot on Pihlajarki (Objective Chrain) and the 3rd Regimental HQ and heliport on Montaka (Objective Doktorskaya). Rescue Prime Minister Šimonytė and kill/capture Colonel Vaikšnoras.
