1st SHAM continues its mission in the Bahamas, providing medical assistance to those in need, as well as supplying food, drinking water, and tentage. The supplies that the ships carried have been distributed, so additional supplies are being flown in from the ROD and the United States. Supplies from the ROD, US, and other countries make their way to Miami International Airport where they are picked up by helicopter and flown either to the ROD ships or directly to the islands when a suitable LZ is available.

Pictured here are 2 Phrogs from HMM-65 – Gargoyles – bringing drinking water to the Ares for future distribution.

The Rugby World Cup begins today! The ROD team is in Japan for the event, but ROD folk are not known for their rugby skills. They are in Pool E and their first match will be tomorrow against Mahishmati.

If the ROD is interested in reestablishing relations with New Canada, we do have a unused Consulate in Victoria you can use. the main embassy in Ottawa is still there and patrolled by the RCMP.

The ROD will consider the reestablishment of diplomatic relations with New Canada. Some support it, while others remain opposed to a formal relationship. Either way the ROD will continue to assist New Canada with rebuilding their military wherever we can.

The Ministry of Defense announced today that it had signed a contract with a company in Karmanaskis to produce defense-related hardware for the ROD Army.

Details are classified, but it appears that the contract is valued in the millions of dollars (Dalmatian Dollars). The ROD Army will be expanding in 2020 and this contract will provide the new units with components and/or major end items for light tactical vehicles, small arms, and/or night vision devices.

The ROD Army will not field any new units until early 2020, but the acquisition and training process is beginning now.

So your working with our small island neighbour rather then New Canada in terms of equipment?

ROD,
You feel from your evaluation of Karmanskias manufacturing & specs, that they offer good value and reliable products, the CoC will evaluate to see about the offering that may come from Karma Manufacturing firms.
We appreciate the conclusions from ROD.
Bi-lateral trade will hope to improve relationship economically for the CoC and Karmanskis. The CoC supplied over 100 tons of steel, composite resin, and special armor elements/material.

The ROD is indeed acquiring gear from Karmanaskis and not New Canada. We need stuff and they can provide it. Beyond that, the Karmanaskis are accommodating and easy to work with. New Canada seems very uncooperative. You are unwilling to speak with KN. You are unwilling to speak with CoC. You demand that KN change their domestic laws and policies to fit your ideals.

Having said that, the ROD is willing to work with New Canad under the right conditions, and we will continue to assist you militarily as much as possible.

Well to be honest, Karmanaskis with all that Cannabis production, has proven to be quite a liability to New Canada as of late, if KN have something else of value that our country could benefit from, then we would reconsider the whole embargo thing.

As for the CofC, they did offer to improve relations to New Canada a couple of week ago which Parliament was looking into, but the incident with their Electronic Warfare aircraft over the East Coast during their training exercise, unfortunately ruined that.

Where not uncooperative, where just...uptight on things, we are gentleman after all we just have a different view on things.

The situation in Syria remains chaotic, even in late 2019 with government troops gaining an upper hand in Damascus and many rural areas of the country. The civil war is still raging though. The Syrian government, supported by Russia, Iran, and others, continues to battle against the Syrian National Coalition. The coalition is made up of various rebel organizations supported by the US, Turkey, and others. The ROD has had a small contingent of special operations troops in the country for several months.

Into this chaos, the Eurasian Empire has been trying to exert its influence over several rebel groups that are not aligned with the Syrian government or the Syrian National Coalition. The Empire has been providing training and equipment to these rebel groups which are now organized into a force called the PAC (Persian-Arab Coalition).

With international attention currently on the Turkish-Syrian border, PAC forces, with Imperial advisors leading them, have been infiltrating north-eastern Syria in preparation for a military operation to seize the valuable gas and oil fields east of the city of Al Hasakah. The PAC force includes 1,500-2,000 infantry with some light armor support in the form of BRDMs and BTRs. SOF units have heard about a very few tanks in the area, but those reports have not been confirmed. PAC forces are believed to be poorly trained with low morale, but thus far they have been unopposed in their movement into Syria.

The ROD believes that a brigade-sized unit could destroy the PAC forces in Syria and eliminate the threat of the oil fields falling into the hands of an Imperial proxy, but time is short. PAC forces will be ready to move within a few days. The ROD has less than 200 special operations troops in Syria (Army and DIS), and there is also an ROD Air Force Special Operations Squadron in the country consisting of helicopters and irregular prop-driven aircraft.

New Canada Will send the Canadian Airborne Regiment to assist the ROD paratroopers in defending the Oil feilds from the PAC and the Eurasian Empire. the entire Regiment will depart on Monday.

The Airborne Regiments attached Tactical Advisor, believes that the PAC attacks will be random and light when the Airborne regiment drops.

The Tactical Advisor also say to not trust any Special Operations forces that are in the area as they are considered a illegal unit according to the New Canadian Warfare Standards.

It’s starting to get dark as the large, blacked out planes approach the abandoned airfield. The twelve C-130s started in the ROD and they flew all this way to Saudi Arabia under radio silence. The airfield, just north of Riyadh, hasn’t been used for several years, so the runway lights are no longer operational. Instead, personnel on the ground have positioned burn barrels at key locations along the runway and portable generators power additional lights on the ground and in the hangars. As the transports approach, they turn on their landing lights and make relatively smooth landings (relative for the condition of the runway), and the birds taxi toward a group of hangars.

Once the aircraft come to a stop, the paratroopers of the ROD 15th Infantry Battalion disembark and stretch their legs. Commanders huddle in one of the hangars and await the arrival of the New Canadian Parachute Regiment.

The aircraft will be refueled and the troops will have several hours to prepare for the upcoming drop. In the hangars, supply personnel continue to build pallets of ammunition, food, water, and other supplies to be dropped to the troops on subsequent flights. Later tonight, once a current intelligence update is provided to the airborne force, they will climb back into their transports for the flight into Syria. Saudi Arabia, being not too keen on the idea of Eurasian Empire influence in the middle east, has agreed to let the ROD and New Canadian troops use this facility, so long as its kept quiet. Syria, on the other hand, has no knowledge of the mission.

The plan is fairly simple: the two airborne battalions will drop into eastern Syria near the town of Al Hawl and march 4 miles to a ridgeline that intersects the main east-west highway in the area. This is the highway that the PAC forces are using to move into Syria. The troops will occupy the ridgeline and block the PAC movement. They will use whatever force is necessary to stop the PAC movement.

The challenge for this mission will be command and control. The ROD and New Canadian battalion commanders do not answer to a single unified commander. The two battalions will have to collaborate and cooperate. This is clearly a violation of one of the principles of war: Unity of Command. Unfortunately, as is so often the case, politicians have committed troops to an operation under less than ideal circumstances. The politicians set policy and the troops execute.

The 6 RCAF CC-17 Globemasters Carrying the Canadian Airborne Regiment has arrived at the Abandoned airfield in Riyadh Saudi Arabia, to link up with the ROD Paratroopers in the hanger, Onboard the Globemasters a lot of back and fourth chatter from the crew asking about what the regiment is going to expect when they get to Syria, all under radio silence something that is nerve wracking for them.

After the Globemasters have landed at the Airfield the Regiment disembarks from the planes stretching their legs, some of the soldiers began to shove one another to get off the plane quickly, once out of the plane they prepared camp at the nearest hanger, the Globemasters radio operator writes a written progress report to be sent to the Airborne's Regimental Commander in CFB Petawawa, once camp is setup, the Airborne Regiments Officers meet with the ROD Commanders in their hanger to go over the details.

The Canadian airborne regiment should know EXACTLY what to expect when it gets to Riyadh, or it shouldn't be going there. It is not a mystery, as NATO members have been operating from there since before they were BORN! What do you do for planning? watch a little "Survivor," pass around a doobie, buy a downtown bus schedule and call it a night? Facilities, logistics, the tactical situation, initial positions should all be KNOWN. Your initial deployment, defensive posture, initial defense lan, and contingencies already formulated and briefed, so ALL of your troops should be confident.

Looks like another attempt to reduce the Canadian population and MOD payroll. Once again, the New Canadian national strategy... what's the name of the OPERATION PLAN, nickname Operation Blunder V?
