During the last patrol, Alpha Company secured western and central Panthera. The patrol revealed a large number of Wagner Group and Russian separatist forces camped in several valleys. Both ground and air elements destroyed a large number of targets, but suffered high casualties and loss of equipment in the brutal fighting.
Due to the loss of vehicles and diminished tactical capabilities, Alpha Company has been tasked with participating in a joint operation with the Turkish 66th Mechanized Brigade to destroy remaining enemy forces in the AO.
NATO Allied Joint Force Command Brunssum has directed 3rdID to link up with the Turkish 66th Mechanized Brigade at Joint Base Arnoldstein. From there, Ground and Air Commanders from Alpha Company and the 66th will divide responsibilities and objectives on the three small islands northwest of Arnoldstein. Turkish Commander COL Koray Erdel has intelligence on Wagner Group positions on each of these islands. Formulate a plan of attack with Turkish forces and clear all enemy forces on the objectives:
OBJ Andropov has a small airport that Wagner Group forces are using to move and stage men and equipment;
OBJ Brezhnev contains several artillery and mortar positions identified by the 66th Mechanized Brigade; and
- OBJ Chernenko has armed personnel garrisoned in Porto Pyano, which are suspected Wagner Group smuggling operatives.
NATO maintains a dockyard with several tactical assault craft available for First Platoon's assaults on the objectives. 3CAB is tasked with recon, CAS, insert/extract, and resupply functions. Air insertion may be needed on one or more of the objectives.
