EXECUTION: 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. Endstate: 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.

  5. Just to confirm, you are running the recruit server mods and not full 15th ones right?
  6. Capt D. A. Thomas Headquarters, 15th MEU(SOC) FPO San Diego, CA 92102 Patti- It has begun. Marines have landed on foreign soil and I was there at the beginning. Colonel Penny will be pissed when he sees I was in the first bird but I had to see with my own eyes the situation on the ground. I had to see how the enemy would react to fire, how they maneuvered and how well their command and control structure coordinates in the face of multiple threats coming at them at the same time. I was at a spot I felt crucial to the operation, right at the point of friction where RUC forces were retreating and NRC forces were gaining ground by the minute. We stopped them cold. I was surprised at the relative caution of the NRC commander in tasking his forces as we faced more of a probing attack than a determined one. I know they were not expecting such a strong blocking force but it looked like we got hit by a skirmish line rather that a balled fist looking to smash the final resistance of the RUC forces on the island. That is not to say we didn't have casualties. SgtMaj Masters was hit in an artillery barrage and knocked unconscious for a bit. I was moving through an area looking for him and almost stepped on him before I realized it was him and he was hurt. He was checked out by a corpsman and he is good to go. We sent forces to take an island to our north and blew up a bridge in the south to confuse the hell out of the enemy commander and we have a few more surprises planned. My main focus is keeping the momentum in our favor and keeping the enemy commander guessing. W are being relieved by Kilo Company and all of India will be moving back to Airfield Corium very soon so they can be further tasked elsewhere. I keep thinking of a quote I heard about the invasion of Granada - "We have two companies of Marines running all over the island, and thousands of Army troops are doing nothing. What the hell is going on?", this is what I picture when someone looks back on this operation. Our Marine all over the islands, popping up in unexpected places causing chaos in the enemy formations and plans. We will need to stay vigilant and watch for the enemy commander to do the same as he is confused now but will not stay that way long unless we continue to throw him off his game. I know you won't get this some time yet but I feel it is important for me to put this to paper. If for nothing other than to make sure I never forget it. I am fine and haven't even fired my weapon yet. Tell the kids I miss them and I will call as soon as I get satellite time. I will be writing my parents soon, let them know I am thinking of them. Dave
  7. *****Operational Immediate***** To: Headquarters USMC From: 15th MEU Operations Officer 6APR17- 0700hrs (Local)- At 0300 (local) elements of the Law Enforcement Detachment landed at King's Landing and successfully escorted Geoffery to Dragonstone. 0500 (local), Task Force Alpha secured the towns of Serval and Skelter following amphibious landing. Task Force Bravo moved to blocking positions west of TFA holding bridge following amphibious landing. Task Force Charlie moved to blocking position east of Yolandi following heloborne insert. Task Forces Bravo and Charlie report achieving total surprise on enemy forces. Task Force Alpha reports NRC forces expecting assault with AAA threat high. All Task Forces report high enemy personnel, equipment and material losses with minimal friendly casualties. All objectives met. Casualty reports to follow.

  8. I think Mr Harris is on the right track. I had a similar problem to the point I deleted my arma 3 profiles and rebuilt them thinking it would help (RIP all my money and gear from King of the hill and Wasteland). I finally figured out that when my son was doing homework on my PC he hit the game config button on my Logitech keyboard which disables the windows key. I hit the button and I am good to go now. Well, minus the profiles I was dumb enough to delete.
  9. *****Operational Immediate***** To: Headquarters USMC From: 15th MEU Operations Officer 06APR17- 0145hrs (local), RUS HQ has advised 15th MEU of one (1) battery of 105mm Howitzers (5 guns) attached to 15th MEU HQ for tasking in upcoming operations. This battery has reported to MEU HQ as "UP" and ready to begin support operations immediately. Due to the various objectives of MEU forces, this battery will be supporting each of the task forces as an "on call" fire support asset. The remaining RUS fire support assets are currently supporting the withdrawal of RUS troops to tertiary defensive positions. RUS forces are falling back at all points of the current defense line with heavy casualties. Exact whereabouts of Geoffrey unclear at this time, other than in transit from King's Landing to Storm's End, final destination reported as Dragonstone but no firm sightings as of this time.

  12. Capt D. A. Thomas Headquarters, 15th MEU(SOC) FPO San Diego, CA 92102 Patti- We have been steaming for two days faster than I would have believed possible for a ship this size and we are close to our destination. I will be disembarking soon but I wanted to give you what information I have (that's not classified). No doubt you will hear of these developments before this letter reaches you so this will come as no surprise, the 15th is being tasked with the defense of a friendly government and our troops are ready. I spent last night walking through the hanger deck chatting with some of the troops, a pat on the shoulder here, a casual joke there while India Company was cleaning rifles, loading gear and generally getting ready to disembark the ships for an unknown period of time. The ACE pilots and maintenance crews worked around the ground troops getting the aircraft ready for action. On the Well Deck the AAV crews and LED guys were readying their equipment too. I spoke with Capt Wiggin (LED) and 1stLt Velten (AAV) and made sure their troops were squared away. All of the men are in high spirits but it isn't hard to tell the new guys from the ones that have been through this before. The old hands are quiet and speculative, some withdrawn in their own little world. Most of the new guys are excited and talking bravely about what they are going to do and how easy this is going to be. I know from experience that will end as soon as the first rounds fly. For the most part the older men and women have been giving good solid advice to the new joins, the MEU is ready for whatever we see. I may be out of contact for a while but I will write as often as I can. I spoke with 2ndLt Frey (S1 officer) and made sure the SGLI is all set, you and the kids will be taken care of in the event something happens to me. The Will is set and in the safe deposit box along with the title to the cars and the Bonds we got for our wedding...hard to believe it has been 25 years. I know you hate this part but it is necessary. Love to all, Dave
  13. Warning Order- Operation Rising Cadence

    Department of the Navy Headquarters United States Marine Corps 15th Marine Expeditionary Realism Unit WARNING ORDER OPERATION RISING CADENCE ORIENTATION: Cordocas is a small island nation off the southern coast of South America. Officially titled the United Kingdom of Cordocas (Reino Unido de Cordocas - RUC), the nation of Cordocas is governed by a constitutional monarchy and is currently ruled by King Rafael Hidalgo. King Hidalgo has no heirs, and he has been known to be a somewhat incompetent ruler. Sensing weakness in the king's rule and noting his lack of a lineage, several top military commanders of the RUC Army organized a coup d'etat to overthrow the king's rule, calling themselves the New Republic of Cordocas (Nueva República de Cordocas - NRC). They seek to violently reform the government into a republic, governed by a military junta rather than a parliament or president. The United States has long held friendly economic ties with the RUC and has provided some military training and arms to help the RUC ensure that international waters near the Drake Passage are kept patrolled and enforced to prevent piracy. Map: Isla Abramia Weather: Day 1 - Morning: Partly cloudy Day 1 - Noon: Clear Day 1 - Evening: Cloudy Day 1 - Midnight: Rain Day 2 - Morning: Light rain, overcast Day 2 - Noon: Partly cloudy Day 2 - Evening: Clear Day 2 - Midnight: Partly cloudy Day 3 - Morning: Light fog, partly cloudy Day 3 - Noon: Clear Day 3 - Evening: Overcast Day 3 - Midnight: Overcast Effects on visibility: BLUFOR and OPFOR will not be affected by any visibility.

To download the image below in high resolution https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3GvlnPW4ofda1JoOE1ZMl9mcUk/view?usp=sharing SITUATION: Five days ago, the United Kingdom of Cordocas (RUC) has been thrown into turmoil as the New Republic of Cordocas (NRC) has initiated a military coup d'etat to wrest control of the nation from the established monarchy. In the past five days the majority of RUC forces been driven back towards the capital city of Yolandi and is currently fighting to prevent the NRC from controlling the south eastern portion of the island of Abramia. The Secretary of Defense has authorized the USMC to mobilize the 15th MEU to rapidly deploy in immediate response to this crisis and, with the express permission of King Hidalgo's court, to conduct combat operations in eastern Cordocas to restore stability to the region and to force the NRC to cease all operations. NRC forces have deployed Silkworm and Exocet anti-ship missile batteries along the coast line and extensive SAM and AAA protects these batteries in Cordocas. Due to the considerable risk these batteries pose to the Navy, the Navy will not be deployed to Abramia. The 15th MEU will only be operating in eastern Cordocas to establish an area of control for follow-on operations by relief forces. ***** NOTE: Both FRIENDLY RUC and ENEMY NRC elements use the same weaponry, vehicles and equipment with no variation in uniform, ensure PID is followed to avoid any blue on blue, or blue on green.

(Note: These are optimistic projections by S-3 of what we hope to accomplish during these Operations. They should not be taken as 100% fact as to what will actually happen.) Civilian Considerations & ROE: Nothing in the ROE will restrict or limit your right to take action in self-defense. Attack only designated OPFOR combatants and military forces. Do not attack civilians unless they commit a hostile act/intent. Treat all civilians and their property with respect and dignity. Do not enter their homes unless you are invited, you suspect suspicious activity, or you are in dire need of self preservation. Treat all prisoners humanely. U.S. forces may detain civilians for their own safety. Spare civilian persons and objects, destruction of civilian property should be avoided. Restrict lethal force to what the mission requires.

  14. Capt D. A. Thomas Headquarters, 15th MEU(SOC) FPO San Diego, CA 92102 Dear Patti and kids- Training with the Mexicans was pretty good, liberty in Acapulco was phenomenal. It was great talking to you and the kids and I have already sent the kids a box with some things I picked up for them...and a little something for you. We have been back on the ships now for a few days and we have plans to stop in San Antonio, Chile and if we do I will call from there. More later when I have more for you. Well, it happened, LtCol Alexander called an all hands muster last night and they pinned on my Captains bars. I thought we were going to get a briefing about what is next in the deployment but he surprised me with my railroad tracks. It was nice and the troops all had very nice things to say about it, which I appreciate very much. It really gets to me sometimes when I think how lucky I am to be surrounded by these guys and girls. They really are more of a family than anything else. Hey baby, I know it has been a few days and I had planned on sending this letter off but we had a few things pop up. We bypassed stopping in Chile and are continuing South at best speed. I don't know much yet but will let you know what I can when I can. Keep in contact with Mrs. Penny and make sure the phone tree is up to date, I have a feeling we are going to be needing it soon. Contact the wives of the Company Commanders and make sure they are in contact with their respective platoon commanders wives so all information can be passed to everyone as soon as it is received. We have been through this before, hell you're an old pro by now. Stay strong for the kids and the younger wives that haven't been through it yet and help them where you can. I'm going to be mostly out of the line of fire so our main worry should be the troops. Remember, morale is key for the troops, remind all the wives, husbands, girlfriends and boyfriends to write uplifting letters as often as possible, it can literally save lives. I have to go, I'm mailing this now. Dave
