Event created by 1SG C.Brock
In the wake of last week’s amphibious assault on Camarra Island, S-2 has utilized captured intel to track enemy movements and activities. All of it indicates a retreat and reconsolidation of enemy forces in the southeastern AO. ISIS commander Kazem El Sakka reportedly fled Camarra as 3CAB began clearing the final objective. Intelligence analysts think they have pinpointed El Sakka’s new base at Lukasa Castle.
Third Infantry Division must counter and defeat this threat in order to secure NTC and set conditions for a decisive mission against OPFOR in the region. Kazem El Sakka has been designated a High Value Target by S-2.
Alpha Company “War Eagles” is ordered to clear the airstrip and large bridge crossing left from STX Week 1. Once First Platoon has crossed onto the southeastern island, conduct the penetration of enemy defenses and assault strongpoints and the HQ at Lukasa Castle. Kill/capture HVT Kazam El Sakka and destroy ISIS command elements. Secure the area against enemy counterattack until relieved by Turkish Army forces.
Week 3 of Exercise Shattered Rock will test each element’s mastery of Combined Arms Operations, Ground-to-Air Communications, Penetration, and Battle Drill 8. Conduct the Initial Breach of a Mined Wire Obstacle.
OBJ Ants Nest - Tamera airstrip, held by ISIS to smuggle materiel into the AO. First Platoon partially cleared this objective two weeks ago, but it has undoubtedly been reinforced by OPFOR.
OBJ Beehive - Long bridge crossing that controls movement to and from the southeastern AO.
OBJ Cat Scratch - Village of Boona, an enemy strongpoint that restricts further movement into the island.
OBJ Dog Bite - Town of Solon, a suspected ISIS VBIED factory.
OBJ Elephant Tusk - Village of Imaka, a suspected ISIS barracks.
OBJ Fox Den - Lukasa Castle, the suspected location of the ISIS HQ and HVT Kazam El Sakka.
3CAB “Falcons” is ordered to support scouting and recon of the initial two objectives in conjunction with Fifth Squad “Wizards”. Facilitate the bridge crossing and movement onto the southeast island. Support further penetration to Lukasa Castle. Falcons will provide reinsert, resupply, and medevac as requested. Viper will also provide CAS and target interdiction prior to and during the assaults on all objectives.
Coordinated movements and fires of mounted, dismounted, mortar, and air assets will maximize combat power and ensure timely completion of all assigned tasks.
Rules of Engagement: Military-age male with weapon, desert camo uniform, and combat kit. Suicide bombers are likely; warning shots are authorized. Civilian elders and property owners may be armed, but have been instructed via radio and satellite TV to remain indoors during the exercise. Do not enter any civilian houses unless there are confirmed hostiles inside.
