  • Cloak & Diver - March 9th Event Discussion

    I will be available tonight for a briefing regarding resources available and additional background information for the Squad Leader. Leadership appointments will be posted shortly.

    Remember this mission will have no group/command/side channels available. It is important that you have your effects up so you can hear direct channel in game. We will likely use TS channels for groups once we are cleared to use radios in game. We will have to use line of sight for smoke signals, UV strobes, flares and so forth.

      OPORD
      Operation Cloak&Diver

      Mission Command – |TG| B

      Mission:

      Dark times ahead my friends. Due to a cyber attack, command fears that encryption parameters of our communication system might be compromised. As a result we are forced to use old tactics and rely upon our wits to try to dig ourselves out of this situation. Currently we are being deployed as a diving team towards Kavala under the cover of darkness with limited equipment and even less intel.

      Mission is unknown upon arrival. Immediate priority would be to beach as a team and secure a pre-arranged equipment dump at the dock. I am told that details about the objective is also in the dump for us to decode.

      Enemy:

      Kavala is known for their housing of enemy units. We are expected to confront occupation forces as we proceed. Further intel on details of enemy forces in the AO is unavailable.

      Objectives:

      No intel on the ultimate objectives of the mission. We are to receive orders in a coded message on the dock along with our equipments. Immediate objective would be to secure the dock and retrieve the coded message as well as gear up suited for land based infantry combat.

      General Instructions:

      COMMS
      Radio usage is strictly forbidden in the first phases of the operation in order to maintain our surprise factor. Radio encryption parameters are assumed to be stolen and enemy is assumed to be monitoring our frequencies. Thus we will stay radio silent until an agreed upon time, or an event as the mission progresses. This includes GROUP, SIDE, COMMAND, SIDE, GLOBAL channels.

      Because of the radio limitations of this mission we will agree to use other means of communication. Laser pointer, flashlight, time, chemlights, flares, smokes will be used in order to communicate over long distances.

      As a general agreement, we will be observing the following color coordination to signal specific situations:
      • Blue: Special purposes/dependent on the situation
      • Green: Friendly loc
      • Yellow: Request for medic
      • Red: Distress, request reinforcement
      • White: Illumination/Concealment
      • IR: Special purposes/dependent on the situation


      MOVEMENT/ENGAGEMENT

      Stealth is the name of the game. Must stay silent, quiet and stealthy as we progress. Keep full security and always be the first to engage instead of being engaged. Coordinated takedowns and immediate displacement after a loud engagements must be carried out. Listen to your TLs as their job is to keep you moving and alive.

      Special Instructions:

      Silencers – operators without silencers are weapons yellow until ordered otherwise. At some point we will “go loud” but probably not until well into the mission.

      Night Optics – Initial dive into the dock, we will not have NVGs. We are promised NVGs at the equipment dump. The operation will take place during night time.

      UAV – UAV operator will deploy at the airfield. UAV operators must grab a rebreather and deploy to the AO via HALO. They will have no communications because of radio restrictions. UAV operator must stay close to command within DIRECT channel distance.

      Medics - Medics will start at the airfield along with the pilot and the UAV operator. Medics must grab rebreathers and deploy immediately via HALO to the AO.

      Pilot - Pilot is grounded until further notice.

        The weather forcast is in for mission time. We are expecting heavy rains and fog. Visibility will be under 200m. This will make getting around easier but it will make visible signals harder. Expect flares to be most effective because you can launch them toward friendly positions. Go time should be about 2345hrs in game so it will be pitch black. Good thing the pilot is grounded.

        HQ was considering having artillery on standby but there is too much risk in destroying the city for this operation.

        We also have satellite imagery showing a heavy infantry presence in the AO. There are few vehicles expected at GO time and there is an enemy air route above the city.

        If radio silence is called off due to the situation on the ground leaders are advised to use code names for all locations. All location information must be kept from the enemy who is listening in. Command regrets not informing the forces of the exact nature of the mission but it is critical there is no leak prior GO time.

        Good luck.

              Did I hear correctly that Daylight Savings kicked in this week for the US? Now I'm confused by time zones again!

                I'm in same time zone as New York & yes we just put our clocks ahead an hour. We are still going at 1900 Zulu or GMT. That is 2pm EDT (Eastern Daylight-Saving Time). That is also 6 hours and 45 mins from the time of this post.

                  Ok - your post was at 11:15am GMT... +06:45 = 1800 GMT! :) Only asking because I think I missed out on the mission last time daylight savings ticked over.
