For some time, a rogue African nation has been expanding its sphere of influence on the continent. By uniting tribes and factions within its own borders, and neighbouring countries, it has grown to be a significant point of interest to the international community. Intelligence gathering was heightened when they appeared to unite and ally with several of the regions 'Pirate' factions. At first it was thought that they wished to have control or influence on the nearby shipping lanes, and were to utilise the PIrate vessels as a 'navy' of sorts.
Unfortunately that estimate proved to be innacurate.
The nation and its partners have seized control of a small island ( a former military airfield). They are using this as a base of operations to seize cargo and resources from ships passing through. Selling the goods to allies, which is in turn allowing them to enrich their own forces. Although a risk of destabilising the region, NATO could not authorise direct action.
This situation changed however as 3 days ago, an Oil rig and 3 ships were seized (belonging to NATO member countries), nearby to their base of operations. Intelligence analyst predict that the intent is to sell the oil and use the ships to transport oil and military equipment to partner states, thereby further increasing their own influence.
We cannot risk a powerful state to rise in the region through nefarius means. However despite the somewhat delicate situation, member states are reluctant to become directly involved. Thats where RG comes in.
Due to the rapid nature of the deployment, we can only provide limited equipment.
