    Who: Task Force x1

    What: Attack by fire the FOB at the land bridge

    Where: IVO FOB land bridge

    Why: Deny the enemy the use of this FOB as a staging area for attacks to the Northern battle area.



    Commander's Intent:

    It is my intent to use two task forces to attack and clear enemy forces from the peninsula housing FOB Medvodovo, the airfield and sea port via amphibious landing at the northern tip of the area.  It is also my intent to use one armored platoon to attack the FOB on the land bridge from a distance along with ACE CAS aircraft to render the FOB at the land bridge ineffective for use as a staging area for attacks into the northern battle area.  Lastly, I intend to use the LED platoon to clear possible insurgent activity and unexploded ordinance from our rear while sowing good will with the indigenous people.

    Enemy Key Strength:

    The enemy forces in the land bridge FOB are preparing to attack into the northern battle area, while strong forces in the area of FOB Medvodovo continue to mobilize for counter attacks.

    Enemy Key Weakness:

    The enemy is in known positions with limited freedom of movement. 

    Exploitation Plan:

    BLUFOR will attack and destroy enemy forces through fire and close combat.


    At the completion of this mission, BLUFOR will have successfully captured all enemy territory IVO Medvodovo to include the city, airfield and sea port, successfully thwarted the threat of counter attack from the land bridge and assisted the local populace.


    Scheme of maneuver:

    Task Force LED -

    Task force LED will spawn at OP Claro [049,087], move by convoy to Pepinal and conduct operations.

    Task Force Titan-

    Task force Titan will spawn at a staging area move to attack by fire positions and engage enemy forces at the land bridge.

    Task Force 1-

    Task force 1 will spawn at a staging area load on Gator and land amphibiously on the north western part of the peninsula attacking south to the airfield.

    Task Force 2-

    Task force 2 will spawn at a staging area load on Gator and land amphibiously on the North Eastern part of the peninsula attacking south into the city.

    Fire Support Plan:

    RUC 105mm artillery will be available every twenty (20) minutes to provide x5 HE or smoke.  Contact Zeus to request this support.
