Anyone can be a scout!

The ROD would be more than happy to go over unit TO&Es with New Canada and document them to include things like recon units and support units if they think there is room for improvement.

Anyone can be a scout WITH PROPER TRAINING. Without training, he will really screw up.

The army that has been defending for 5 assault landings by the marines.
The army loaded into a Newport LST and two WW2 modified LST, and 20 LCUs and LCM-8. The Miles systems batteries were all exchanged out for training.
8 mile ride around the bend, some of the soldiers were not quite up to it.
The 8 LCUs each had an M1A1 AIM and infantry. The 12 LCMs each carried infantry and a LAV.
4 Scout-sniper teams were inserted, 2 observed one of which was captured. Cat and mouse for the one scout sniper team. AH-1 Cobras providing direct support. Simulated fire-support and simulated air power where controlled by judges.
The 3 LSTs came in after 14 small landing craft had landed. 6 others neutralized.
The assault pushed inland on the one beach about 2 miles by 6pm, the conflict was winding down.

You're right, PG! You can tell I wasn't a 19-series MOS!

New Canada, the ROD will assist with developing and documenting TO&Es. We recommend that we begin with light infantry as the building block for the Army's organization. Start at the squad level and work our way up to battalion/regiment, and then use the light infantry template to develop TO&Es for mech infantry, tanks, artillery, etc.

If you're OK with this we can send COL Eaton and some of his boys from the Infantry School. They're disgruntled at not being in a field unit so they will jump on a plane at a moment's notice. I'll post on the New Canada thread for any TO&E stuff.

Damn CoC! Army defends against attack from the sea....army gets in ships of their own and lands behind the invading marines. That's thinking outside the box! The ROD loves your initiative and deviousness!

We will allow Col Eaton to come to New Canada, but remember the Development and documenting of the TO&E for the Canadian Armed Forces, must stay within the guidelines and regulations set by the CAF.

The ‘Army’ amphibious landing was crazy. The army landed on the closest beach, ‘green’ reducing the time in the LCUs and LCM-8s by 45 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. Great they thought. Had some rocks in a few landing areas, softer sand. Currents seemed to be more challenging. M88 didn’t arrive to help being landed by ‘remaining’ LST, the other two being hit with wireless ATGM and mortars. 15 more Abrams hit the beach, 5 we’re stuck, when tide rose the tankers found that the salt scrub bath isn’t healthy. Needed air intake tubes set up.
Several of the Abrams need cables set up to be pulled from the sand, from the ocean. Great training scenario the expand thinking, the learn from.
The marines re-enforced the center beach. As marines had relationships with sailors, some subtle answers indicated the second beach, ‘blue’. There were more judges and medical personnel on the ‘blue’ beach so when the marine command asked for neutral head counts all indications lead to blue.
.
Clean up will continue all day. Water buffaloes called up to hose out Abrams, LAVs, ambulances, trucks. Skirmishes continued into evening. Will the next day along with recovery. The two ‘destroyed’ LST and the surviving one left along with all landing craft, which was broken up some. Estimate operation for 48 more hours.

The exercise continued this morning as the ROD landed their tanks and howitzers, some getting stuck in the mud with the CoC vehicles. The sticky situation proved to be a valuable training opportunity for the maintenance and support teams of both nations. Recovery operations first, followed by maintenance in an austere environment. The firemarkers even dropped artillery simulators on the maintenance teams and some work was performed at MOPP 4 after a simulated chemical weapon attack.

As the tanks were returned to service they headed straight for the tank range for gunnery along side ATGMs. The infantrymen headed to the small arms ranged for training on personal weapons and crew-served weapons. In the late afternoon the troops transitioned once again, teaming the infantry up with the tanks for training on armor / infantry cooperation. the troops took another shot at the village, but this time supported by tanks.

The training will continue through the night and into tomorrow morning.

Panama Waterway District
The training program set up series of maneuvers on foot beginning the jumps at 0320. All were set up in groups of 18, then parachuted into Ft. Grant, south of the waterway, as a ROD fort, and Ft. Amador, north of the waterway under the care of CoC. They were dropped at 15 minute intervals at each base.
The typically 40 + mile journey ended up being 80-120 mile journey by staying out of sight. Check is on a 6 hour cycle, set on different start time. None are allow to take paved roads, can cross paved roads. They are to walk back roads, trails, woods, etc. A few twisted ankles and other minor medical issues.
Each student is to write in their own journal, reflecting on what has been observed, terrain, concerns, what went well, what could be improved. Each group had specific way points to pick up something.

Coded broadcast... Thule, Greenland
Prepare for Operation: Plan A, execute.
Task Force East, call up your reserves. Task Force West is preparing, build up in the region. The ships that went on northern Atlantic Naval Wargames have returned to Nuuk Naval Base. 4 SSGN (SOC) have entered harbor, 2 have departed. Air transports landed further east in Greenland.
. One question for your leadership, why are there 3-island nations that c......... break in transmission.....

Off coast of Canada and Greenlanddom
The picket line of LCS ships all have their active radars on, sailing at 6 knots. 3 Perry Class Frigates have augmented the Canadian Border area. All civilian ships in the are have been instructed to sail to the south inside Canadian waters or inside Greenlanddom waters. Two Tico and 2 DDG have joined about 1/2 way between Greenlanddom and Canada, all remaining back at least 20 40 miles.
---- underwater systems/assets are on patrol ----

Icelanddom
Aircraft have been landing off and on most of the day. Many dropping off soldiers and equipment. Fighters and attack planes have been landing periodically, Some conducting air attack operations, mostly anti-ship training operations and ASW.
Discussion at dinner, by a few navy CinC NCOs, there are a bunch of subs in the North Atlantic. Nuc and Diesel attack subs, SSGNs, guessing about 25-30. What do you see?
Anti-air Chief, seems like thousands of planes, probably in the hundreds.
.
Army brigade commander at base outside Reykjavík, deploy to the west coast. The logistics trucks are loaded, move them out with escort and soldiers. Are the vehicles load on transports Colonel? They are and moving with a few support platoons and fuel trucks.

The US Ambassador to the Commonwealth of Chrisdom met with the Sec. of State of CoC, to discussion of the concern in Canada. "Canada is building up their military alert and moving assets to the east coast. Plan to close the ports and borders. They have asked from help from ROD, even to send ship to the east coast to defend against your apparent attack or invasion. What can you do to reduce the tension in Canada? The Canadians are going nuts, absolutely bonkers."
The Sec of State replied, "Ambassador, we are only conducting a training operation. It is extensive, it is large. Very large training exercise. We did not communicate with Canada, we do not have diplomatic relations with them. The CoC uses ROD or you, the US to communicate. As I understand it, ROD may have some information, nothing specific. Does that help?"
US Amb, "that helps, it does seem really large, heck even larger than our training exercises. How involved is the exercise?
Sec.State: "very large, army, navy, air force, coast guard, special assets, Foreign Legion, Reserves, guard units and national military units from around the Commonwealth."
Amb: "that does put the scale and some of the scope on the exercise. Where is the focus of the training to take place?
Sec.State: Certainly, various States of the Commonwealth, supporting the efforts, Balzac, Camastan, Icelanddom, Greenlanddom mostly."
Amb: That is obvious, at least from our intel of the scope of the operation. What is the intent, what are the training areas, any engagement areas? Or is it only logistics, looks much larger and robust than just Command and Logistics training exercise?
Sec.State: We are pressing different branches, different elements within the military. Mr. Ambassador, I hope that helps.
Amb: It does provide color commentary, but how far to the east will this go, will it be in the US, we are concerned, too? Will any of the exercise take place in Canada or its territory?
Sec.State: No, neither country will have its territory violated in any way. We have had Coast Guard and smaller patrol ships, LCS I think is what they are called, nearer to Canada. You know that the space between Canada and Greenlanddom gets narrow up north. Those ships have been directing ships, planes to stay out of the area, international waters have had ships and planes in the area. We have encouraged them to steer clear.
Amb: That does not explain and lay open the engagement zone, I did hear you. You do know Canada is nervous. I just hope they do not take any pre-emptive strike. What can we do to prevent that dreadful action?
Sec.State: What idea do you have? What or how would you inform them?
Amb: Ummmm, could I offer to have some observers from the US, 'sneak in' a few Canadian observers to the operation. Could you handle 100 observers, perhaps some from NATO, too, since you are using some European countries. Some English, French, German, Italian, Finland, Norway, Sweden.
Sec.State: Go propose that to the Canadians. Let me know. We have a couple of days to make that happen.
