Map: Zargabad
Time: 00:45
Weather: Clear Skies
Host: @Shadisica
DLC Required: None

The US has released a 476 page file declaring that Takistan has been holding a massive oil deposit a secret. They claim that withholding this deposit can be considered a crime against humanity. One week later, US warships had entered Takistani territorial waters.


I Situation

The city of Zargabad sits in a valley that serves as the sole supply route to the entire province of southern Takistan. A mechanized brigade is en route to capture the town and sever this province. A special forces team has been dispatched to soften up the takistani forces before they arrive.

Friendly Forces

  • US Army Special Forces Platoon “NOCTEM”
  • PLT, A, B, C, MAT, HAT, ENG, DMT
  • Mechanized Brigade “OLYMPUS” is expected to arrive at sunrise.
  • Democratic Capitalist Front - A group of local resistance fighters, funded by our government


  • 2x M116A1 GMV - 10 seats: 1x driver, 1x gunner, 8x passenger - no callsign
  • 4x MRZR4 - 6 seats: 1x driver, 5x passenger - no callsign
  • Explosives crate provided

Enemy Forces

  • Takistani Armed Forces
  • Takistani Police Department


  • Yes
  • Many people fled up north towards the capital as soon as the war started, many buildings stand empty these days.

II Mission

We have been unleashed, we are to prepare the town for the mechanized brigade however we see best fit.

III Execution

Commander’s Intent

  • Some recon has been performed already
  • Prioirity targets would be:
    • The Airfield
    • The Air-Defence site
    • The southern checkpoint, as it will be the first point of contact with OLYMPUS
    • The Fuel Depot
    • …

Movement Plan

  • The military base to the north of Zargabad is home to several hundred Takistani forces. It is likely where any QRFs would come from and far too big a target for your unit.
  • After you’ve dealt the damage you can, we reccomend you take cover in the mountains to avoid friendly fire with OLYMPUS’s support fires.

Fire Support

  • If the Air-Defence site and the airfield are disabled, air support can be brought forward from OLYMPUS.
  • OLYMPUS’s fire supports will not be in range to support you for a few more hours.

Optional Tasks

  • Resupply has been smuggled into the city by our contacts with the rebels.

IV Administration / Logistics

  • POWs and civilians are to be treated humanely.


  • A small amount of supply is available at your camp, full supply has been smuggled into the mosque by the rebels.


  • Reinsertions will be on the hour every hour and be adhered to strictly, no deviation is allowed.
  • Reinsertions are the same for all, including vehicles teams.
  • Platoon Commander has a one time reinsertion wild card at his disposal, call this in through HQ.
  • At predesignated times, reinforcements will be sent out of the base in the smallest transport vehicle which can hold reinforcements.
  • Upon insertion to the AO, reinforcements should stick together until regrouping with the main force in the AO.



Ladies and Gentlemen,

Here is my tactical plan for Tuesday’s OP. I suggest all Squad and Fireteam leaders to give it a ponder.

Thank you!

Despite only joining in the last hour of the mission, I had tons of fun. Thanks for the OP @Shadisica! Additionally it seemed like the planning from @Garf made everything go smoothly, awesome work.


Twas great to be finally able to use the Javelin. Even if it’s use as antiair was not planned and not the most realistic.

It was also great fun to rain down hellfire with rhe zu23 from the hill.

Thanks for the op!
