Iraq/Syria border - 2 days ago extremest militants pushed into and captured the major border settlement of Zargadad. Poorly trained government defenders fled the city on first sight of the approaching forces leaving both a major airfield and several armoured vehicles intact. Militants are setting up and using there newly acquired hardware and territory as a major supply route for arms and materials both into Iraq and Syria. With friendly Iraq and Kurdish ground forces some distance away, the decision has been made for a small special forces unit to infiltrate into the area and recapture the city before local troops move in to hold the territory once more.
RG Taskforce Task
SACEUR and the regional US commander has authorised RG to undertake the mission. The captured airfield is heavily defended with both MANPAD and tracked AA defence as well as armoured vehicles. the USAF are coordinating with a M198 howitzer artillery position some 14 miles to the south to provide a surgical strike against the airfield before the RGTF moves in.
Once captured, RG are to use any equipment left at the airfield to secure the city and dig in. This city is a prized possession and they are unlikely to give it up easy. Expect all manor of gorilla tactics to be used in the cities defence. Once lost we can expect almost certain counter attack from militant forces.
Extremist militant forces using a mix of Russian and Nato weapons. They have captured both heavy armoured vehicles and AA. They will be well dug in, are battle hardened and have extensive experience in guerilla tactics.
RGTF have the following available
Coyote and Jackal vehicles
The airfield is known to house both fixed wing and rotary airframes. A priority will be to capture these in tact for area operations.
