Back on the HMCS Nabob
(CF4F pilot after hearing the news): "D'OH I accidentally shot down a Super Puma helicopter mistaking it for a MI-24 Hind D how was that possible?".

(Squadron leader): "Why did the UIN not warn us they where present? Danm it we !@#$ up the whole thing."

Mech. I think this would be on your Sqdn leaders plate.
The CF4 pilot clearly said he could not identify the heli, "he was not sure".
S/L gave the order to shoot down an unknown target. Not saying that will not happen but it can be a block to future promotion in some units.

Im more worried about the severe political implications as a result of this accidental case of friendly fire. As Canada is trying to be a force for peace but lately we keep running into cases of just plain bad luck.

The Nabob has sent out there Sea king helicopters on a search and rescue mission to recover the crew and passengers of the crashed UIN helicopter in Mauritania's Capital.

The Canadian army troops that where deployed in Sengel has now crossed the border into the county, they will try to rendezvous with the CofC forces in the capital.

The supercarrier HMCS Canada will arrive near the navy squadron in two days tops under full speed, her fighters have been performing round the clock protection to ensure the ships safety.

Mauritania
The CoC task force, known as Task Force Mary, is at least 1 day if not 2 days from entering the capital. As most of the population is along or near the coast, the Canadian forces will probably run into a more difficult path with more prolonged en devour with resistance. The CoC forces will have some issues. Expect to have some fighting in the town and/or villages we enter and pass through. Hence the Ratels and the few Rooikats. 2 dozen Rooikats are being send from Nigeria-dom. Expect those tomorrow, will need to evaluate the vehicles for any service issues.
. The drones have detected some armed men east of Nouakchott in villages and towns. Moving out as the sun is getting higher in the sky and very hot. Hoping that the resistance will 'melt away'.
. Predator C drone detected a group of pick-ups, the 2nd and 4th are gun trucks with HMG, the 3rd had a recoiless rifle. Authorization took 8 minutes to clear to fire on the weaponized pick-ups. The Predator carries two hellfire missiles, the first was fired and hit the 2nd pick up, destroying it and killing the 4 occupants. The other missile was fired at the lead vehicle, just missing the truck, a splinter from the Hellfire missile that flew into his throat severing wind pipe and artery. He lasted seconds..... The Predator continued to reconnoiter. Task Force Mary was still 15 miles away from the targets.

Former Mauritaniadom.
Air Yer bouti has suspended all flights to and from the capital. The last flight out this morning a boeing 727 combi was full, extra people instead of cargo with over 220 counted on arrival in Yer Bouti City. Small arms damage to the aircraft was also noticed.

Five or six factions are fighting for control within the city, the airport area is hotly contested and very hostile to all outsiders. All the different factions seem to have pockets of support around the country but they are over a wide area with no one group in control.
It is very much a patchwork of rival interests. None have the edge with equipment, all have access to older MBT ‘s and small arms aplenty.
With their local support and no big formations to hit from the air, if you want to make a difference you will need to put boots on the ground or back/support one of factions.

From what is know of the groups :
1. Rebels (anti everyone)
2. Al-Kabab
3. CofC supporters
4. Yer Bouti supporters *
5. Whirling Spindizzy’s (National interest only)
6. TBD **Uncontested**

Yer Bouti is offering medical aid/food (selectively)

*Some are calling them the "martyrs du pantalon en velours côtelé brun" to others they are the "Martyrs of the brown corduroy trousers".[



One group attacking another group, it's a mess out there.

If anyone wishes to claim apart of the capital city or countryside please feel free.
You will need.
A few figures, a bit of old card or pink foam etc.
A knife, a glue stick and a $1 bottle of Michaels Tan paint.
That way if no one ever meets the photos can look the same.



After that you can go wild or keep it simple.
I'm going to take a bit of real estate (need them for YB city anyway)
"Martyrs of the brown corduroy trousers" are going to set up to defend their neighborhood in the capital.

The Canadian army has claimed a chunk of Nouakchott's main sea port to which they named it, Maple Leaf landing, with it Canada will be able to ferry more troops and supplies into Mauritania.


The RCN navy squadron is already steaming to Nouakchott right now in order to commence Ship to shore bombardment on rebel held areas of the city, they will have a firing solution on those area within a day at least.

Very nice Mech, let's call that last group in the city uncontested.
Be careful with your armour this is an urban setting, a city of about a one million people. The tanks will need lots of support or they will get taken out!
Baby steps, do not try and fight the whole city by yourself until you know what you are walking into..

Before you commence ship to shore bombardment on rebel held areas remember that innocent folks live there too. Just because they are rebel controlled will not mean they are all rebels!
You will need good intel and recce (or maybe not).
If you fire into another area they might fire back.
If you fire on the Martyrs of the brown corduroy trousers area, they will fire back (do they have anti ship weapons?).

Good start, play safe people will need access to a port.

We had already done photo recon from the Nabobs CF4F Wildcats the day before, judging from the photos it looks like a ghost town down there, so we assume that this Naval Bombardment would not be a problem to do. after the bombardment has ended, our ground troops will move in with Leopard 2 tanks at the front as mobile cover, eventually once the first round of supplies comes in from Canada, will get some flamethrower tanks brought in, there perfect in this close quarters environment.

Also i got word from the supercarrier HMCS Canada there almost here, that will give us some air superiority over the city.

Unobserved naval gunfire and flame throwers? That's one way to do it, but you might want to think again if you want to be perceived as a "Force for Peace".

Former Mauritaniadom.
The city is in total panic, large crowds are trying to get in to any embassy, UIN building, school or hospital.
Several thousand are trying to gain access to the Canadian held area of the port for safety.
Yer Bouti may have as many as 10-15,000 nationals in the city but not all are in the MOTBCT (Martyrs of the brown corduroy trousers) neighborhood. They are city wide at the moment, it is not safe or possible to try to cross the city.
The same is for CofC, UK, EU, US and many other nationals.

Yer Bouti will hold Canada responsible for the safety of civilians.

(Captain): "(sigh), All ships hold your fire until our ships guns is back in operation".
