Last week, Alpha Company met the Russian 1st Guards Tank Army face to face in Sentsy, smashing through its line and subsequently flanking the 2nd Battalion of the 27th Separate Guards Motorized Rifle Brigade. These actions have substantially diminished enemy combat power in the area and mark a turning point in the war.
In addition, First Platoon rescued Canadian Forces LT Jean-Claude Roy and a previously unknown Lithuanian POW before the Russians could evacuate them. After being mauled by enemy armor, the Canadian 2nd Mech has regrouped and established positions controlling the roads north and northwest of the FOB, thereby securing the northwestern AO.
Soldiers captured several EPWs and located intel indicating planned movements of enemy forces northeast of FOB Murphy.
First Platoon "Widowmakers" is ordered to sweep and clear the forest northeast of FOB Murphy and patrol OBJ Kvass (sawmill) and OBJ Putinka (Dubionki). Locate and destroy enemy positions and search for additional intel on Russian forces and movements in the area.
If possible, speak with local civilians, who are known to be predominately ethnic Lithuanians in the objective area. Some individuals may be willing to share information on force movements. With Russian Forces beaten back at Krasnye Seltsy, enemy follow on forces can be expected to seek alternate routes towards Beketov.
3CAB "Falcons" is ordered to support Canadian security operations on the west flank by destroying any Russian artillery sites remaining north of Krasnye Seltsy. From there, Falcons will support First Platoon on the push east to the eastern north-south highway.
