WARNING ORDER TASK FORCE RG
ISSUE DATE: 08/12/2014
ISSUING STATION: NATO - Supreme HQ Allied Powers Europe (SHAPE)
ISSUING OFFICIAL: General Philip Breedlove - Supreme Allied Command Europe (SACEUR)
COMMANDING OFFICER: Maj.Wulfyn
SITUATION - (Follow on from 'The Ten Thousand')
Russian forces continue to make inroads into Romania and are now approaching within 50km of Bucharest. Their armoured and mechanised spearhead followed by infantry has so far smashed any defecnce Romanian and NATO troops can muster. Their coastal expansion, however, has not gone so well for them. QRF NATO forces have managed to reinforce and hold all coastal deep water ports leaving the entire Russian advance working off a single deep water port. This port is now supplying the entire Russian advance.
RG Taskforce Task
The RGTF has been given the covert op task of infiltrating into the Russian zone of control and capturing the port area. NATO forced are aggressively engaging Russian forces at the front pinning them in combat and preventing them from falling back to the port area, while an American carrier fleet has taken up position to protect sea lanes.
Under the cover of darkness the RG Task Force has slipped into an unused airfield in south east Romainia close to the Russian bridgehead. It's mission is to take and hold the port of Berezino and therefore cut off supplies from the advancing Russian colums. A fully operational artillery encampment has been identified and SACEUR has requested RGTF spec-ops quietly infiltrate and disable or destroy the artillery pieces before they can be brought to bear.
Enemy forces are mainly comprised of small groups of Russian army but they have been training up local pro-Russian militias to bolster their ranks and they are well dug in. Satellite and UAV surveillance has noted several units of light armour in the area but it appears the only dedicated AA has been moved to guard the artillery encampment. Although no other AA has been detected, man portable air defence systems remain a threat in hostile areas.
The enemy artillery encampment is thought to be somewhere to the south of Berezino town. AWACS and UAV confirm all heavy armour and Russian fixed wing air assets have been moved to the front line and should not be expected in our AO.
Heavy fighting in the area between local groups should work in our favour and you may only find limited response to skirmishes in the Berezino surrounding area, however the suspected mechanised platoon size garrison at Gorka will undoubtedly respond once the port area comes under sustained attack.
Gambler has deployed in force but has limited support. Ground equipment consists of the following:
2x HEMTT transports
2x AMV-7 Marshall
4x AW159 Wildcat Transport
4x MH-9 Hummingbird
2x AH-9 Pawnee
All RGTF units are present at the airfield.

ROE: Weapons Tight
An absolute priority for the mission is no civilian causalities as each civilian casualty will further bolster Russian propaganda. As we will be attacking at first light and as there is a 9pm-9am curfew in force there should be no civilians on the streets, however, confirm PID enemy before engaging. non hostile civilians are not to be engaged, destruction of civilian infrastructure is to be minimised at every opportunity.
COMMAND AND CONTROL
Highroller will be in direct control of the RG Task Force area defence and exfiltration.
