  • ADF Presence Patrol AAR...

    Situation:

    Yesterday we received word that a small town outside of As Samawah, has a small insurgency presence setting up shop. There hope is to use this small town for recruitment, supply, and execution of terrorist activity to-wards US forces and there allies, current stationed in and near As Samawah.

    The United States has asked for Australian assistance due to heavy operations by US forces in the surrounding areas of the Baghdad Green Zone, that have tied up most of there resources.

    At Approx. 0900 hours on May 25th, 2007, a squad size element from the ADF (Australian Defense Force), with a Bushmaster IMV as transport and support will leave the forward operations base near As Samawah, move to the small unnamed town, and show a use of force presence.

    ADF members are reminded that civilian casualties must be kept at a extreme minimum, only fire when fired upon, or when deadly force is authorized to prevent the lost of civilian and/or ADF lives.

    Once the area is cleared of any insurgents meet with the town elder and get a sit rep on his level of cooperation, and report back to base camp.

    You will have a Bushmaster IMV providing overwatch cover, and the Americans have provided a QRF (Quick Reactionary Force), along with two gunships as a last resort. It will take them anywhere from 45 mins to an hour to arrive if needed.

    Mission Execution:

    Bravo 4-3 loads up on the Bushmaster IMV, they move out to-wards the objective town:


    As the Bushmaster moves up within the towns perimeter, the two assigned machine gunners go on high alert looking for any signs of trouble:


    Once the Bushmaster vehicle arrives on the outskirts of town, Bravo 4-3 dismounts for ground operations:


    The squad leader of Bravo 4-3 orders his men on high alert, changes the formation to a column formation for easy movement through the streets and town:


    As Bravo 4-3 moves into the first street, first contact is immediate, one lone man walking across the street, he looks at the patrol, and the expression is not one of invitation:


    Soon Bravo 4-3 spots a group of men, are these the insurgents, will these be the ones that blow up a bomb as the patrol walks by, or pulls out an AK-47 from the shadows of the building to murder the patrol:


    Bravo 4-3 checks high and low, always on alert. Is there spider holes or ambush points waiting for them, is there snipers and RPG gunners hiding up on the rooftop, waiting for the chance to kill, Are these the insurgents they were sent to look for:


    A man walks out of a nearby building, completely ignores orders to stop and to move away from Bravo 4-3, do they shoot? is this the danger? Is this a suicide bomber strapped with a suicide vest of explosives, hoping to get close enough to do the most damage? No, he keeps walking by, totally ignoring Bravo 4-3:


    What about him, it's 90 plus degrees in the desert, and he wears a think coat, is he hiding anything within that coat, is that threat enough for retaliation, what if he reaches inside the coat as the patrol walks by:


    Suddenly, without warning 3 armed men run out from behind a building, they fire a volley of rounds at Bravo 4-3, luckily they always seem to fire on automatic, so do miss alot more then they hit.

    Bravo 4-3 without hesitation swings to the area of gunfire, spots the targets, and determines a threat, and returns lawful fire:


    Bravo 4-3 is a highly trained, and well disciplined unit, they tactically use bounding overwatch to engage and destroy the threats. One more insurgent jumps out of a building to the left flank, proper discipline and tactics quickly give Bravo 4-3 the upper hand. The enemy gun fire stops with the last man taking a bullet in the upper torso from the squad leader of Bravo 4-3. The squad then continues to move and clear the rest of the alleyway and market place:


    Bravo 4-3 checks each dead insurgent for papers, identification, or clues to find where and who is sponsoring this particular cell:


    NOT CLEAR, a volley of enemy fire comes from the rear location, Bravo 4-3 swings around just in time to engage one more insurgent, the area is then officially declared clear. Bravo 4-3 meets with the town elder, who says the insurgents were outsiders, and not from this small village, Bravo 4-3 then thanks the elder and moves out to the extraction point:


    The Bravo 4-3 squad leader does his head count and weapons check, as his men are ordered to load back up into the Bushmaster:


    Bravo 4-3 with the help and assistance of the Bushmaster team have managed to clear out the small town of insurgents, gather a little intel on the situation, and maybe, just maybe, make a couple of friends from the locals in the town.

    4 insurgents have lost there lives for there cause, Bravo 4-3 is just happy that none of there team members, or any civilians for that matter, have meet the same fate... but who knows what tomorrows patrol will bring:



    Conclusion:

    What did you expect, not every AAR has to be action packed and full of explosions and gunfire. (lol)

    This small AAR was done in tribute to all the men and women of all the Allies on the War on Terror. It was made to show you what a squad of men, (and women) do every single day for months, sometimes years on in. Not all of the patrols end the way this one did.

    Imagine doing this mission over and over, with mixed results, losing comrades and friends, never knowing if the next IED or insurgency/terrorist bullet has your name on it. This is the life of a soldier in the War on Terrorism.

    For that, I give each and everyone of you soldiers a heart felt thank you and salute. I also like to thank the ADF, sure we here in the US always hear about our strongest ally, England, (and a thank them too), but I have a deep love and respect for the Australian nation who have been a dedicated ally to the United States since the world wars. But they don't seem to get the credit they deserve from the press, people, or in the books we read. So a special thank you to all the Australians.

    Awesome AAR. I have immediate family members over in harms way every day. Thank you for this little glimpse for those that don't know. Even if it is still a video game, it gives a decent depiction of what goes on in their minds as they try to do their jobs. Thanks. + REP!

    In the pursuit of... something.
