    Castle Breach

    1: Mission Summary:

    War Eagles is part of the operation to secure the terrain south of the city of Roveniemi in order to allow Coalition forces to secure the major logistical hub in Northern Finland. This week War Eagles will Air Assault into the southern portion of the AO to establish a FOB on the Southern Airstrip for all forces future operations. This will include clearing out the local towns and areas of Finnish forces to ensure the future FOB is secured for operations. War Eagles will identify a Patrol Base location and FARP location for 3CAB during this mission.


    2: Enemy Situation (Area of Interest):

    Pori BDE: The Pori BDE has had multiple months to develop defenses within the AO. This area is templated to be heavily fortified all throughout the region and the Pori BDE has been distributed all throughout the AO. Currently the Pori BDE has two organic CV9030 Mechanized BN’s, one attached 24A Tank BN, and one PATGB 360 Motorized BN as their main forces. Additionally they have one Artillery BN (two Batteries of Mobile Howitzers, one Battery of towed Howitzer, and one Battery of Rocket Artillery), one Recon SQDN (three Troops of BRDM-2’s and one Troop of AT BRDM-2’s), one ADA BN (two Batteries of LVKV-90s, one Battery of ZSU-23-4s, one Battery of AA TMs, and one Battery of Towed SAMs), and one SQDN of Air Attack Helicopters (One Troop of Recon, Two Troops of Attack, one Troop of Transport, and one Troop of sUAS). This BDE has extensively been trained by NATO forces in the past on western tactics, so expect their forces to act closer to passive reconnaissance, move and strike tactics and precision fires.


    21st Pori Recon SQDN: Currently all of their assets are dispersed across the maneuver BN’s. But they are currently in charge of all information gathered of Coalition forces as they move into the AO. They are located somewhere in the woodline north of Cimice.


    1st Satakunta Jaegers: Currently this BN is tasked with holding the city of Susice from Coalition forces. Due to the importance of the city to the region, the city has not been heavily fortified and is generally held by forces setting up ambush sites around the area.


    95th Satakunta Jaegers: Currently this BN is tasked with holding the river line near the town of Cepice. They have deployed one Company south to hold the Airstrip with the task of delaying enemy forces as long as possible.


    4th Karelia BN: Currently this BN is tasked with holding the major Airfield north of Kvilda. They have deployed extensive defensive obstacles in their region and are considered the main effort of the AO for the enemy. We anticipate they have utilized the tree cover to avoid detection as much as possible. 


    3rd Pori BN: Currently this BN is considered the reserve of the BDE. Their are tasked to provide combat support in any avenue of approach coalition forces make the most ground in. They have done a great job staying dispersed and have been seen training QRF drills in the AO. Expect them to arrive to any location they are needed within 15 minutes of being called.


    The 8th ADA BN and Pori Artillery BN have split their forces up among the maneuver BN’s. That is where we template their current BN’s are at.


    13th Air Attack SQDN: Currently they are supporting all maneuver BN’s from the north east Airfield near the BDE HQ. We anticipate their response time is roughly 5-10 minutes of being called into the fight.

    3: Enemy situation (Area of Operation):

    95th Satakunta Jaeger BN: This BN has two CV9030 Companies, one PATGB 360 Company, one Reconnaissance Troop, one Mobile Howitzer Battery, one ADA Battery, and one Air Attack Troop in their task organization. They have split their Artillery and ADA Batteries among the maneuver Troops. The Recon Troop is currently acting as the BN Reserve.


    B/ 21st Recon TRP: Currently this Troop is acting as the BN Reserve and has assumed control of the AT Platoon and two Maneuver BN’s. We anticipate their trigger to support will be the presence of enemy forces in Cernic, but that is not confirmed. We believe they are currently headquartered in Hradesice.


    A/ 95th Satakunta Jaegers: Currently this Company is tasked with the defense of the town of Vikonice and Cernic. They are deploying more and more obstacles around the towns for improved defenses. We believe they are currently headquartered in the town of Cernic.


    B/ 95th Satakunta Jaegers: This Company is tasked with delaying coalition forces along the major river running east to west in the AO. They have reinforced both sides of the river and have done a good job avoiding detection up to this point. We believe they are currently headquartered in Rabi.


    95th Satakunta Jaeger BN: This BN has two CV9030 Companies, one PATGB 360 Company, one Reconnaissance Troop, one Mobile Howitzer Battery, one ADA Battery, and one Air Attack Troop in their task organization. They have split their Artillery and ADA Batteries among the maneuver Troops. The Recon Troop is currently acting as the BN Reserve.


    B/ 21st Recon TRP: Currently this Troop is acting as the BN Reserve and has assumed control of the AT Platoon and two Maneuver BN’s. We anticipate their trigger to support will be the presence of enemy forces in Cernic, but that is not confirmed. We believe they are currently headquartered in Hradesice.


    A/ 95th Satakunta Jaegers: Currently this Company is tasked with the defense of the town of Vikonice and Cernic. They are deploying more and more obstacles around the towns for improved defenses. We believe they are currently headquartered in the town of Cernic.


    B/ 95th Satakunta Jaegers: This Company is tasked with delaying coalition forces along the major river running east to west in the AO. They have reinforced both sides of the river and have done a good job avoiding detection up to this point. We believe they are currently headquartered in Rabi.


    C/ 4th Karelia BN: This Company is tasked with the disruption of coalition forces near the town of Modrava and Filipova Hut. They have built light defenses in the area and are focusing on conducting ambush tactics in the AO to attrite the coalition forces. We believe they are headquartered in the town of Cimice.


    B/13th Air Attack Troop: This Troop is tasked to support the 95th Satakunta Jaegers in their delay operations in the AO. They are organized to allow Attack helicopters, reconnaissance assets, and transportation assets. We believe they are headquartered in the north east airfield and rely of radio communications to deploy forces.


    The BN has also been supplemented with one Battery of Self Propelled Howitzers and radars and one Battery of Self Propelled ADA assets with some AA teams and sUAS. They are task organized under the maneuver troops in support of their operations.

    4: Friendly Situation (Area of Interest):

    Skaraborg Regiment: The Swedish forces are tasked with securing the City of Susice from the Finnish. They will conduct the attack on the city this week to secure it from the Finnish and to open avenues of approach on the west side of the AO.


    2BCT/ 3rd ID: The American forces are tasked to build combat power to attack the city of Kvilda. We anticipate they will secure the town with little to no resistance and will prepare for the main assault on the major Airfield in the south west.


    1-2 IN: Currently the US forces are tasked to secure the small towns and airstrip south of the major river to establish capabilities for operations in the AO. Once secured they will consolidate combat power to defend the area from a potential counter attack and to assist with the assault on the major airfield in the south east.

    5: Company Mission:

    War Eagles will Air Assault to LZ King and LZ Queen to attack to secure OBJ Lance, Mace, Crossbow, and Ballista NLT 16 JUN IOT establish operations in the AO for future operations. OBJ Lance is an Airfield that must be secured first to allow 3CAB to establish a FARP and transport supplies for a patrol base, OBJ Mace is a town that provides avenues of approach to the region, OBJ Crossbow and Ballista are major access points into the AO that must be secured to clear the area.

    6: Tasks to Subordinate Units:
    A) Widowmakers:

    Secure the Airfield at OBJ Lance before taking any other OBJ’s. Once secured, identify a patrol base location (not on the Airfield) and FARP location (on the Airfield) for follow on operations.
    Attack to secure OBJ Crossbow, Mace, and Ballista.


    B) Griffins:

    Conduct an Area reconnaissance for enemy presence in LZ King
    Conduct an Area Reconnaissance of all OBJ’s to identify enemy BP’s prior to Widowmakers attacks.
    Provide a screenline north and East of OBJ Ballista prior to Widowmakers attack


    C) 3CAB:

    Provide Air Assault capabilities for Griffins to LZ Queen and Widowmakers to LZ King.
    Transport necessary equipment to the new FARP and Patrol Base locations at OBJ Lance once they are identified.
    BPT provide CCA to Widowmakers and Griffins as they attack to secure all OBJ’s..
     
    7: Additional Resources:
    A) Artillery/ Mortars:

    Currently Coalition forces have a Battery of Paladins in support of Company operations for this week. They have already allocated a total of 4 fire missions in support of the operation. Additional requests will be on a case by case scenario. Additionally, 3CAB will inform Company Leadership of wheels down at LZ Queen and King by 1 minute to allow planned suppression missions to be fired on the LZ’s.


    B) Detection Assets:

    There is currently no Counterfire radars available in the AO at this time.
    There is currently no Air detection radars available in the AO at this time.


    C) Air to Surface Assets:

    There is currently no Air assets available in the AO at this time.


    8: Rules of Engagement

    Enemy uniformed personnel are free to engage within the assigned AO. Any engagements outside of the Company AO must be approved by Company leadership. No indirect fires (IDF, Aerial, and Mk19) within 250 meters of any building unless confirmed there is no civilian presence or approval from Company leadership.


    Civilian allegiance is split on the island. Some favor the Finnish Militaries recent actions while others condemn it. If you interact with civilians, attempt to obtain knowledge of town allegiances in the AO, this will allow us to identify which areas will be friendly or hostile to Coalition forces. 


    Due to limitations of supply into the region, Hellfires on drones have been limited. Only 4 hellfires are authorized for this mission.
    Due to Finnish operational level Air Defense Assets in the region, all military aircraft will be held to 1500 meters AGL or less. If they break that altitude they can be at risk of engagements from operational level Air Defense.
