Situation

Background Information
Royal Marines stationed at Jackson Depot are to deploy to deal with various objectives in-between the Canadian and British/ German fronts. Intel found by the Canadians suggests a Russian officer may be hiding out on the Eastern peninsula, and an active defensive line to the North-East of Jackson is holding up the coalition advance further into the territory. Not much is known about the officer other than his name- Vasily Sidorov- and his position as Chief Logistics Officer for the Southern region. Capturing him could provide valuable intelligence for future operations and is a priority.

Friendly Forces
Large scout infantry platoon of Royal Marines, supported by a logistics team and several water-borne craft.

Supporting Assets
No friendly forces in the area- most of the planned route is technically behind enemy lines.

Enemy Forces
Mostly scout and patrol infantry scattered in woodland, with supporting IFVs in QRFs and a dug-in defensive line to the North.


Mission

Tasking
With several taskings not suitable for other forces in the area, UNITAF teams must deal with assorted objectives, chief amongst them being the defensive line North-East of Jackson Depot. According to intel found to the East, a Russian officer is hiding out in the AO and is primarily a capture target due to his valuable knowledge of the enemy force. Primary Tasking -Dismantle the Defensive Line North-East of Jackson Depot -Find and capture the Russian officer Vasily Sidorov [OBJ-B] Secondary Tasking -Secure the Light Defences at the river bottleneck [OBJ-A] -Secure the fortified checkpoint ~2km North of the bottleneck [OBJ-C] -Secure intelligence from enemy installations and HUMINT

End-state
Once the defensive line is secured, helicopter or truck-based extract will be available to return the platoon to Jackson Depot.


Execution

Commander's Intent
The intent for this mission is to take out a defensive line that is causing a massive halt in the British advance inland. We are also looking to capture a Russian officer from the Canadian AO.
