Situation

Background Information
UK FORCES HAVE ALMOST COMPLETED THEIR TOUR WITH THE UN AND WILL BE SOON HANDING OVER OPERATIONS TO ANOTHER FORCE AND WITHDRAWING FROM ANGOLA. GREAT PROGRESS HAS BEEN MADE BY THE UK FORCES IN SECURING THE CHONGO REGION AND BRINGING STABILITY TO THE REGION. AS PART OF THE PLAN FOR PROVIDING CONTINUITY TO THE STABILISATION PROCESS UN MILITARY COMMANDERS WANT TO EVALUATE WHETHER THE CHONGO CIVIL DEFENCE FORCE (CCDF) CAN BE EASILY TRANSFORMED INTO A LOCAL FIGHTING FORCE. FOR THIS REASON, FOUR OF THE MEMBERS OF THE CCDF WITH THE HIGHEST POTENTIAL FOR LEADERSHIP HAVE BEEN CHOSEN TO JOIN UN FORCES ON A PATROL OF THE WESTERN REGION WHERE UN FORCES HAVE NOT YET BEEN ACTIVE. THE MAIN OBJECTIVE WILL BE TO SECURE THE THREE MOBILE TELEPHONE TOWERS IN THE REGION SO THAT UN ENGINEERS CAN BEGIN REPARINING THEM ASAP AND TO PROVIDE HUMANITARIAN AID TO THE POPULATION THERE. THERE ARE NO INDICATIONS OF ANY ENEMY PRESENCE IN THE REGION, AND THEREFORE IT IS UNLIKELY THAT WE WILL ENCOUNTER ANY RESISTANCE.

Friendly Forces
1 X SQUAD SIZED GROUP OF BRITISH ARMY FORCES WITH SUPPORT FROM CCDF MEMBERS

Supporting Assets
UN SUPPORTING ASSETS ARE AVAILABLE FOR ADMINISTRATIVE AND LOGISTICAL SUPPORT. 1 X BRITISH ARMY HELICOPTER AVAILABLE FOR TRANSPORT AND LOGISTICS.

Enemy Forces
THE INDEPENDENT LIBERATION FRONT HAS BEEN DISBANDED AS A FIGHTING FORCE. THERE MAY BE VERY SPORADIC CONTACT WITH EX-MEMBERS, BUT IT IS UNLIKELY THAT THEY WILL BE WEARING MILITARY CLOTHING OR CARRYING WEAPONS OPENLY. IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT, IN THIS PART OF THE COUNTRY, MANY PEOPLE CARRY WEAPONS WHICH ARE LEFT OVER FROM THE CIVIL WAR OF 1975-2002. IT IS NOT UNCOMMON TO FIND A GOAT HERDER OR TRAVELLING MERCHANT ARMED WITH AN AUTOMATIC RIFLE. [u]THIS DOES NOT MAKE THEM OUR ENEMY.[/u] WE ARE HERE TO PREVENT CONFLICT, NOT CREATE IT. USE CAUTION AND SOUND JUDGEMENT WHEN ATTEMPTING TO DISARM ANYONE. WE SHOULD ONLY DO THIS IF WE HAVE REASON TO BELIEVE THAT ALLOWING THEM TO BE ARMED POSES A DANGER TO US OR OTHER CIVILIANS.


Mission

Tasking
OUR FORCE IS TASKED WITH THE FOLLOWING: SECURE THE TOWNS OF AKOMO, BATAKI, KABOMBI AND MIBA. SECURE TELECOMMUNICATIONS TOWERS 1 TO 3. PROVIDE HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE TO ANYONE NEEDING IT. AS PER STANDING ORDERS, IN ALL LOCATIONS: A) ASSESS THE LEVEL OF THREAT IN THE AREA; B) ASSESS THE NEEDS OF THE GENERAL POPULATION AND PROVIDE SUPPORT WHERE POSSIBLE; C) GATHER HUMINT FROM CONVERSATIONS WITH THE GENERAL POPULATION TO IMPROVE OUR INTELLIGENCE SITUATION; AND D) GAUGE THE SUPPORT FOR UN OPERATIONS IN THE AREA. REPORT ALL INFORMATION AND INTELLIGENCE THROUGH THE CHAIN OF COMMAND.

End-state
THE END-STATE WILL BE REACHED ONCE ALL THREE TOWERS ARE SECURE AND THE TOWN OF MIBA IS REACHED.

Tasks and Sequencing
PLEASE NOTE THIS MISSION IS ONE IN WHICH WE HAVE GREAT RESPONSIBILITIES IN EVALUATING AND EDUCATING OUR FELLOW CCDF SOLDIERS. FOR THAT REASON, IT IS EXPECTED THAT ALL DEPLOYED SOLDIERS FOLLOW STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURES AT ALL TIMES.

AS POSSIBLE. AT THE SAME TIME, THIS IS A LIVE OPERATION, BE ALERT AND AWARE OF POTENTIAL RISKS. TEACH OUR FRIENDS RISK EVALUATION AND MITIGATION OF RISKS WHEN AND WHERE APPLICABLE. THIS INCLUDES SOCIAL RELATIONS AND DE-ESCALATION TECHNIQUES. OSCAR, WITH CCDF SOLDIERS INTEGRATED IN THE FIRETEAMS, WILL BE INSERTED BY AIR WITH ASSISTANCE FROM XRAY.
