_____________________________________________________________________________________________________ STARTEX (COMBAT): Upon startex dog platoon will prepare for enemy assault on RV-Bronze by holding defensive positions around the town. DOG 1 is to defend HP-1, DOG 2 HP-2 and DOG 3 HP-3. Meanwhile LIMA 4 is to prepare resupply of RV-Bronze and future platoon resupplies from their FOB in the north. Friendly artillery firing from our northern FOB will suppress the enemy in our vicinity temporarily to give us time to prepare for further attack. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ PHASE 1: Once RV-Bronze has been successfully secured and DOG platoon has been resupplied, the platoon will assault compounds along its movement plan accordingly. Compound C5 may require assault from two squads. The Platoon will then hold before PL1. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ PHASE 2: When cleared to pass PL1 Dog Platoon will continue along it's three movement paths to each squad's designated compounds. Compound C6 may also require support from an additional squad. The platoon will then hold before PL2 and resupply if required at RV Silver. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ PHASE 3: When cleared to pass PL2 Dog Platoon will continue along it's three movement paths to each squad's designated compounds. Compound C10 and C11 may also require support from an additional squad. Compound C13 and C14 will be assaulted by two squads due to its size and complexity before DOG platoon assaults the final stronghold of C15. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ NOTES: - The terrain is extremely CQC with a lot of urban compounds and thick foliage so preparations should be made accordingly. - Specific callsigns have not been assigned to movement paths as it will be to commander discretion depending on situation. - LIMA 4 may be required to destroy walls to create entrances to certain compounds using explosives. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________
