Situation

Background Information

Molatian forces have begun an assault into Afrene territory. We are waiting on an official political update in regards to war declaration, but with NATO forces being assaulted at Numbo a retaliation is necessary.

Following the Militariga Molatia [MM, Mike-Mike, the official Molatian armed forces] attack on Numbo, NATO HQ has authorised a covert strike against hostile military assets on Taris Island. Taris Island is one of the main military infrastructure and support areas for the whole of Molatia. Friendly AAC forces are meanwhile attempting to hold the MM assault in Numbo and are buying time for UNITAF's attack.
Several key installations and targets have been identified and marked and are to be engaged at the ground CO's discretion.

Mission

Tasking

UNITAF is directed to conduct a night time attack on key MM targets around Taris Island. Maintaining stealth for as long as possible will allow the task force to take defenders by surprise and destroy vital equipment and supplies before any significant enemy response is brought to bear. Key targets as follows;

Primary Tasking

  1. MM Kalimbo - The main installation on Taris Island, Kalimbo military base is currently being used as a secure storage site for a vast number of armoured vehicles and a handful of their crews. Dismantling this base and the assets within will strike a huge blow to Molatian forces and prevent the assets from being used against AAC forces.
  2. Taris Supply Depot - A large military supply depot, TSD houses weaponry, munitions, rations and various other military cargo.
  3. Taris Military Communications Hub - A well-fortified comm hub, intel suggests this installation may house state secrets of which NATO are keen on uncovering.

Secondary Tasking

  1. FOB Tarisol - A local garrison mostly concerned with keeping the small civilian presence on Taris Island in check, dismantling the FOB may help destablise the area.
  2. Downed Scout Helo - One of our scout helicopters was off-course and was shot down over Taris Island. We have marked the location of the crash site accurate to 100m. Recovering the flight recorder and any living crew are a long shot but divert the resources if possible.
  3. Camp Mongoose - A small ammo dump and garrison overlooking the river mouth, dismantling this camp may aid any future assaults upriver.

Rules of Engagement

Enemy Forces

Militariga Molatia forces are spread thin across the northern side of the archipelago due to their assault on Afrene. As a result Taris Island has reduced garrisons. FOB Bastion is a well-defended fort island with Anti-Air capabilities- avoid this area until we can more effectively engage it. The area surrounding it as marked on the map is the estimated effective range of Bastion's AA weaponry.

Maintain stealth for as long as possible to avoid QRFs being brought to bear on you. If you are discovered you may attempt to disengage and relocate to recover stealth, MM forces may assume that one of Afrene's insurgent forces was behind the attack and send a less effective QRF. During Broken Sun we discovered that MM forces may use search helicopters to find your positions.

MM forces are currently under-equipped for night warfare; very few regular soldiers and guards have night vision equipment (around 1 in 10), however specialist forces with effective equipment may be sent as QRFs should your force be spotted. The north side of Isla Hazena has military installations which will give away your position and intent, it is recommended you avoid this area.

 

Civillian Population

Civilian presence on Taris Island has been noted, and whilst most of the civilians on the island work for the Molatian military in some capacity, HQ stresses that unarmed civilian targets must not be engaged or harassed. Collateral damage in civilian areas must also be avoided.
