Operation Daesh Dawn, Fallen Resolve

United Task Force
UNITAF Forces Diyala
Lt Gen Chad P. Franks
MacDill Air Force Base Tampa, U.S.



Background Information
After nearly 12 months since UNITAF forces departed Diyala, Iraq, an airborne company from the International Task Force arrives back at FOB Ishaqi for its 6-month rotation. However, not more than 2 hours on the ground, a routine British Army armored patrol is ambushed on the outskirts of Kahn Bani Saad, which is controlled by ISIS. With the loss of 2 Warriors confirmed and a third hanging in the balance, UNITAF's Quick Reaction Force is deployed to safely exfiltrate 12 known survivors who have reached Al Ubaidy and made contact with recon units and to recover Warriors IFVs and 4 crewmen, currently MIA - before ISIS can capture them, as trophies or worse. Landing east of Jarahh Hill due to anti-air threat, once our QRF can secure a route a pair of Wildcats will provide Close Air Support to enable a swift and safe execution of the recovery plan.

Friendly Forces
Airborne QRF Consisting of; 1x Light Infantry Platoon 1x Sniper Forward Reconnaissance Team 2x Wildcat AH1 CAS 1x Merlin HC3 Transport

Supporting Assets
Additional friendly forces are located between FOB Ishaqi and Khan Bani Saad Airfield. Iraqi Forces are based out of Khan Bani Saad Airfield and have multiple installations of which the latest positions have been provided. The civilian population in Al Ubaidy is neither supportive of ISIS nor the Iraqi Government and is mostly indifferent to our presence, however we suspect that there may be supporters of either side living or embedded there.

Enemy Forces
ISIS forces are in control of Kahn Bani Saad and we believe that our surviving force was able to deal with much of the ambushing force. However ISIS forces are expected to move rapidly from KBS towards our survivors. KBS has a significant AA capability and it's approximate threat zone has been marked based on Iraqi intelligence. The enemy are known to use a mix of conventional and asymmetric tactics and we would expect enemy marksmen, indiscriminate use of RPG as well as up to 100-150 fighters supported by a mix of light technical to lightly armoured vehicles to respond within the planned window of this mission. There is a medium-low chance of VBIED, and suicide attacks.


Rescue and recover survivors of a successful ambush on a British mechanised infantry patrol and recover or deny the enemy the use of any remaining equipment. Ensure all survivors are treated and returned to Field Hospitals and that any KIA are returned and not left in enemy hands.

Exfiltrate before nightfall and before our position is overwhelmed or the enemy is able to mount a significant counter-attack.


Commander's Intent
The purpose is to assemble a quick response force to save the lives of friendly troops ambushed and destroy assets to deny them from the enemy
