Execution

Commander's Intent
THE PURPOSE OF THIS MISSION IS PRIMARILY TO GATHER INTELLIGENCE CONCERNING FORCE SIZE AND COMPOSITION IN THE AO. ONLY IF SUCCESS CAN BE SUFFICIENTLY GUARANTEED WILL WE ATTEMPT TO NEUTRALISE THE CAMPS.

Tasks and Sequencing
BE ADVISED THAT THIS IS AN OFFENSIVE RECON MISSION. OUR CHANCES OF SUCCESS ARE DIRECTLY LINKED WITH OUR CAPABILITY OF MAINTAINING STEALTH AT ALL TIMES, AND USING ALL OUR SENSES TO DETECT POTENTIAL DANGER. CASUALTIES, FATALITIES AND MISSION FAILURE CAN BE EXPECTED SHOULD WE FAIL TO DO SO. VIKING WILL INSERT AT LZ VULTURE (PRIMARY), OR LZ EAGLE (SECONDARY) IF PRIMARY LZ IS UNTENABLE, WITH ASSISTANCE FROM SKYLARK. FROM LZ VULTURE, VIKING WILL MAKE ITS WAY TO RECON AREA VICTOR AND SET UP AT OP THOR (ALTERNATIVE OP ODIN). IF NECESSARY, THE ELEMENT WILL MOVE TO LOCATE CAMPS. WHEN LOCATED, AN ASSESSMENT WILL BE MADE CONCERNING FORCE STRENGTHS AND CAPABILITIES, AND WHETHER VIKING CAN SUCCESSFULLY DESTROY THE CAMP WITHOUT THREATENING OUR OPERATIONS. FROM RECON AREA VICTOR, VIKING WILL RENDEZVOUS AT RV ZEUS, FROM WHICH THE CALLSIGN WILL MOVE TO RECON AREA CHARLIE AND OP TYR. SAME INTENTION AND GOALS AS WITH RECON AREA VICTOR. AFTER THE SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF THIS OBJECTIVE, THERE ARE THREE POTENTIAL SCENARIOS: SCENARIO 1: SHOULD RECON BE COMPLETED WITH SIGNIFICANT TIME TO SPARE AND WITHOUT HAVING BEEN SUFFICIENTLY COMPROMISED, VIKING WILL CONTINUE TO RV ARTEMIS, WITH THE INTENT OF MOVING TOWARDS EITHER LUMPHAT OR NUOC BUN FOR FURTHER RECON. SCENARIO 2: SHOULD WE HAVE SOME TIME TO SPARE, VIKING WILL IGNORE THE TWO NORTHERN TOWNS AND RENDEZVOUS AT RV ATHENA. FROM RV ATHENA VIKING WILL MOVE TO OP MAGNI TO OBSERVE AND RECON A SMALL RIVERSIDE HAMLET TO ITS EAST. FROM THERE WE WILL MOVE TO LZ FOX FOR EXFIL. SCENARIO 3: SHOULD WE HAVE NO SPARE TIME, OR IN THE CASE OF BEING SUFFICIENTLY COMPROMISED, WE WILL RENDEZVOUS AT RV ATHENA AND MOVE DIRECTLY TO LZ FOX FOR EXFIL. DUE TO THE NATURE OF OUR OPERATION, SKYLARK WILL AVOID VIKING'S AREA OF OPERATIONS UNLESS OTHERWISE REQUIRED. THEY WILL BE TASKED TO ASSIST OTHER FRIENDLY UNITS IN THE REGION UNTIL EXFIL OR PRAIRIE FIRE SITUATIONS.
