Following 3rd Infantry Division’s penetration of ISIS defenses and capture of Lukasa Castle, S-2 has exploited a veritable treasure trove of enemy intelligence. DNA and other evidence confirmed that ISIS Commander Kazem El Sakka was killed in his HQ last Sunday. His cellphones, laptops, and radios, however, provided detailed plans of OPFOR operations. S-2 has discovered that his senior lieutenant, Mohamed Yasin, has succeeded him as ISIS regional commander.
In addition, global ISIS affiliates have used revenues from human trafficking and oil production to fund a contract with Syrian PMC Hafez Security Company (HSC) to bolster OPFOR numbers in the southern AO. Led by retired Syrian Defence Forces COL Abdel Mustafa, HSC provided El Sakka manifests for multiple airlifts of armored vehicles (BMP-2, BTR-60), ammunition, and 150x armed security contractors. The PMC force was given orders to capture Kinsella city and secure approaches to the northern AO. In a text message, El Sakka admitted that remaining ISIS forces would attack NTC as soon as all HSC contractors were on the ground.
S-2 does not have reliable intel on COL Mustafa’s or Mohamed Yasin’s location(s). Given the possibility that they are in the southern AO, S-2 has designated both of them High Value Targets. NATO Intelligence Fusion Centre is assisting S-2 with additional intel exploitation to pinpoint Mustafa.
Alpha Company “War Eagles” is ordered to conduct an airborne drop onto DZ Barmaid. Together and in conjunction with Air, Reconnaissance, and Forward Observer assets, Infantry will close with and destroy enemy forces, capture Kinsella International Airport, Kinsella, and Djolan, and thereby prevent OPFOR attack(s) on NTC. Kill/capture HVT COL Abdel Mustafa and ISIS commander Mohamed Yasin. Secure the area of operations for hand-over to Turkish Army forces.
Week 4 of Exercise Shattered Rock will test each element’s mastery of Combined Arms Operations, Airborne Operations, Movement to Contact, Exfiltration, and Battle Drill 2. Conduct a Platoon Assault.
OBJ Jägermeister - Kinsella International Airport, southern AO aviation hub and base of operations for Hafez Security Company’s force. The airport has 2x large hangars, a heliport, ATC, and light defensive positions around the perimeter.
OBJ Goldschläger - City of Kinsella, the regional urban center. The large city has a number of multistory buildings as well as a likely ISIS HQ on the southwest edge of town. The surrounding areas host abandoned military bases that may be utilized by ISIS and/or HSC.
- OBJ Rumple Minze - Village of Djolan, a river crossing linking the northern and southern areas of operations. The Turkish Army has established a blocking position on the north bank of the river. Sweep and clear the objective to eliminate remaining enemy forces.
3CAB “Falcons” is ordered to insert airborne elements at DZ Barmaid via static-line jump from 2x C-130. Support scouting and recon of the initial objectives in conjunction with Fifth Squad “Wizards”. Provide CAS and target interdiction in conjunction with Platoon FO “Foxtrot”. Exfil ground forces to NTC for ENDEX.
Coordinated movements and fires of 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 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.
