Operation Vertex, Day 8

MacDill Air Force Base Tampa, U.S.



Background Information
UNITAF success in neutralising Nationalist presence toward the South coast of the Chernarus region has led to UEF forces being stretched thin in the North. Russian-backed ChDKZ forces have noticed this and taken advantage, pushing into the unclaimed Northern territory and seizing land. A UEF Combat Outpost at Devil's Castle- named COP Hades- has been taken by ChDKZ forces and drone footage has revealed AA sites being assembled. Since we cannot afford a hostile presence so close to our Airbase, UNITAF will mobilise a large force to push out East and take several objectives with the intent of pushing ChDKZ forces back into Russian-claimed territory whilst acting as a show of force to prevent further incursions towards UEF land.

Friendly Forces
1x Airborne Infantry Platoon -- 2x Rifle Squads -- 1x Weapons Squad 1x Command Element with FAC and PltSgt 2x FAC MRAP 4x4 1x MEDICAL MRAP 2x A-10-C 1x UH-60 MERT 6x MH-6 on Standby

Supporting Assets
UEF troops will move to hold COP Hades once UNITAF teams move back to Johnston Airbase for ENDEX.

Enemy Forces
ChDKZ are expected to field heavy armour and helicopters alongside a large ground troop presence. Nationalists are dug in around Gvozdno with their usual equipment, but with only a light garrison in comparison to their Southern pockets.


UNITAF will be tasked with securing COP Hades along with the Nationalist town of Gvozdno and the Oil Fields to the North. Heavy enemy reinforcements are expected so this deployment will also act as a show of force to the Russian-backed ChDKZ. Most civilians have evacuated due to sporadic firefights between the Nationalists and ChDKZ but some may remain hidden so wanton collateral destruction is forbidden. Primary Tasking -Secure the military-held objectives East of UEF territory; -Secure COP Hades -Secure the Oil Fields -Secure Gvozdno -Secure the Nationalist FOB at Gvozdno. -Destroy ChDKZ reinforcements pushing toward UEF territory. Secondary Tasking -Secure intelligence on ChDKZ forces and take POWs where possible. -Evacuate any civilians caught in the fighting.


Commander's Intent
The purpose of this mission, is to repel a ChDKZ advance on UEF territory and to deny them the capture of key installations in Nationalist Claim Zone (NCZ). The intent is to do so with maximum impact on ChDKZ forces to deter any future operations against UEF territory. In doing so the minimum damage to buildings and facilities, and while protecting the lives of civilians and EPOWs.
