SkullCollector Posted April 22, 2021 Share Posted April 22, 2021 The circumstances notwithstanding, a staggering number of people stayed on to complete the mission. That's the sort of spirit we love to see. Just so, let's carry it forward every week with Frontlines Wednesday. Here you can expect an established chain of command, fully supported by staff and with a fresh twist each time. Mission Length ~2 hours, with a chance to carry on open-ended Leadership Sign-up https://forms.gle/9658WHZkwnpTb8AT6 If you would like to lead, signing up will give us and you a chance to organise plans and manage expectations! Leader picks will be messaged ahead of time for a pre-brief. Every slot is still open and available for join-in-progress. Situation Spoiler Russian airborne forces (VDV) have occupied the island of Malden. We have been deployed as a task force to secure a beachhead for further operations and drive out the invaders. Local resistance has activated, but due to the escalating nature of our operations and destruction of civilian property since, they are flipflopping in their support. We must not let their favour slip away. We have liberated half of Malden, weakening the enemy's foothold and reducing their numbers. Friendly forces British Armed Forces, Combined Arms, Task Force Platoon 1x 3-man HQ (CMD, RTO, UAV) 3x 9-man Rifle Squads 1x 3-man Fire Support Group 2x 3-man Vehicle Crew 2x 2-man Air Crew 1x 2-man Logistics Independent forces Local resistance ("FIA") Enemy forces The Russian VDV is a highly organised, regular force suspected to have access to these assets: Regular infantry Airborne QRF Motorised and mechanised transport Armour Rotary-wing aircraft Fixed-wing aircraft Reconnaissance has identified key locations serving as radio communications facilities to sabotage or capture. Reports of quick-response Forward Operating Bases as well as supply depots around the island are also coming in. Mission Gain a foothold and fortify our position. Capture strategic objectives. Establish favourable relations with the local populace. Execution At CMD’s discretion. Section cohesion is of utmost importance. The enemy outnumbers us greatly and will not hesitate to exploit gaps in our situational awareness. Counter-attacks and a general resistance to our efforts will ask for quick shifts in our tactics. Admin / Logistics Reinforcements are unlimited and directed by CMD. Resupply is CMD’s prerogative. Enemy prisoners of war (POW) are to be treated well and brought to base for questioning. The Logistics team has full discretion as to the fortification of our FOB under CMD's guidance. If no other tasking, default to supply and POW escort. Command / Signal Operations and ground control lie solely with the Platoon Commander. The RTO handles air traffic and can supplement communications. Support unit slots are under Platoon Command's prerogative and can be asked to reconsider their slot, but never forced to give them up in favour of another player. All units must be tasked fairly. Squad leaders are responsible for the operational effectiveness of their teams. DomT and RiverWolf 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
