There is a group of like minded people from all over the world...We are called "Dogs of War".

we are a virtual unit that tries for greater immersion and realism within the confines of the simulation. We play regularly and meet daily in a TeamSpeak channel.

There is a difference between the 2 days.

The Saturday is called T.A.N.K.S. and is open to everyone

The Sunday is a day for the Virtual Unit called Dogs of War and is open to their members. A higher level of proficiency is required to play on the Sunday.

Border Relations part III "Once more, into the Breach!" by Rhyfel
Part 3 : of a 3 part campaign
Completed Part 1 :http://dogsofwarvu.com/forum/index.php?topic=184.0
CompletedPart 2 :http://dogsofwarvu.com/forum/index.php?topic=203.0



Mission Summary / Description (from the designer):
"The final installment of the Border Relations Scenarios on the updated Fort Benning Map. Part 3 is not for the faint of heart. The scenario involves a combined arms breach of a complex, enemy obstacle along canalizing terrain. I designed this scenario based upon the breaching tenets (IFOMs) and fundamentals (SOSRA). You will need MICLIC and AVLB experience to complete. Recommend a minimum of three players. Scenario will take 90-120 min. You must conduct a combined arms breach with a MICLIC so advanced SB skill is recommended.." Rhyfel

Map



Excerpts of the battalion commander's orders for...BLUEFOR

GENERAL SITUATION: Gordonian Forces were repelled in their attempts to seize OBJ Ant and OBJ Lions in 3-67 AR's area of operations (AO). Delta company's success on OBJ Lions made the Gordonian Forces positions on OBJ Bull and further south untenable. Gordonian forces were seen maneuvering to the north from 770 210 in Battalion strength. Signal intercepts and movement indicate Gordonian forces withdrawing to the north to BP4. 3/115th BN is seizing key terrain (K1-K3) in order to envelop OBJ Lions from the north.


Task Organization
1/1/C M1A2SEP
1/2/C M1A2SEP x2 Plow
1/3/C M1A2SEP
1/3/A M2A2 ODS
1/5/C XO and Company Trains
1/1/E Tactical Mobility Section (Bridging)
1/2/E Tactical Mobility Section (MICLIC)


Area of Operations: Your area of operations is Axis hammer to PL Florida in the south. In the west, PL Mississippi, and in the east (LOA) PL Georgia. To the north, once you breach K2 or K3, PL Alabama.


Area of Interest: Enemy has no CAS. Enemy retains x2 2S1s at Company level, x6 2S1s at the BN level and a battery of BM-21s with ICM at the BDE level. Trigger to launch indirect is a NATO attack eastward from the international border (PL Alabama). Due to 3-67 ARs attack to the east to prevent BP4 reinforcement, BM-21 with ICM are most likely not employed into our AO. The enemy retains x2 sorties of Mi-24 Hinds at the 115th BTG level, trigger to launch is the breaching of tactical protective obstacles on K2 or K3. The enemy company defending OBJ Manning retains one tank platoon in reserve, last seen vicinity grid 188 945. Trigger to launch is the penetration of obstacles along PL Alabama.


Mission: Attack to seize OBJ Manning in order to allow follow on forces to maneuver east of phase line Georgia.


Sequel: defeat enemy CATK on OBJ Manning.

FST 1:
Task: Obscure enemy observation of breach site
Purpose: in order to provide mobility of breaching assets
Method: 155mm Smoke
Effects: 10 min obscuration at Point of Penetration (PoP)

FST 2:
Task: Suppress enemy on OBJ Manning
Purpose: in order to prevent effective fires on breaching assets
Method: 155mm HE, ICM
Effects: no direct fire on breaching element

FST 3:
Task: Disrupt enemy reserve force along Axis Dagger
Purpose: in order to allow the decisive operation to destroy the CATK
Method: 155mm FASCAM 400 x 400m with 40 min timer
Effects: enemy is unable to seize OBJ Manning


Priority Intelligence Requirements:
1. Is the enemy defending west of PL Alabama? Indicator: BMP2s in vicinity of K1.
2. Will the enemy envelop OBJ Manning from the north? Indicator: mechanized platoon or more traveling west through NAI 301. Battalion Scouts Observing.
3. Is the enemy counter attacking along Axis Dagger? Indicator: Company size mechanized element moving east to west through NAI 303. Charlie Company Observing


Enemy:
Enemy has up to 6 COAs
