(Canadian Infantryman):" Oh No Not another Drone Attack shoot those F@%*s out of the sky."

Every infantryman starts firing there Assault rifles and semi-auto shotguns at the swarm of BT drones flying over head before they fly low, the officers fled to there armored vehicles from the attack.

I don't know about this one Mech. One single drone, very little reaction time.
Watch the video again. I think the guy at the mike is about to say " O **** it" but runs out of time.
It is not a swarm attack to guarantee a hit on a strategic target like the oil tanks from the other day. More of a surprise hi value anti personnel strike from left field.

We might need an umpire to call this.

Not sure who you had in mind for an umpire, but here is my input: a drone flying fast at rooftop altitude would leave you no time to react. You're in an urban environment, so you wouldn't even have line of sight until it cleared the building closest to you, and since you are sitting in the street you would see the drone just a split second before it detonated.

Maybe if you are in a clearing or a more defensible area with better line of sight you could engage a drone (hint hint).

Since I'm heckling anyway, let me ask this question of Canada: who are these guys that are attacking into the city? Is this a battalion? Regiment? Brigade? Division? I ask because the size and type of unit will determine to some extent what your command post looks like. I don't know Canadian doctrine, but in the US you would have a main command post, a forward command post, and a rear command post at most levels. Since you only mentioned a single M577 I imagined a lone command post carrier sitting in the street.

The size of the unit stationed in the occupied t.zeina area is

9000 infantry
80 Leapord 2 tanks
100 LAV IIIs
70 M151 MUTTs
and 1 M557

Most of the Command for the whole operation is located in the Maple leaf landing, but Canadian officers are known to drive to the frontlines in M557s as a way of observing the Battlefeild, and as a symbol of there status to the troops.

I get the numbers, but WHO is it? Queen Victoria's Royal Infantry Regiment? Canadian 1st Division? Are you maneuvering companies and battalions against enemy strong points or just throwing 9,000 random grunts into the city?

Maple Leaf Landing.

[quote=" officers are known to drive to the frontlines in M557s as a way of observing the Battlefeild, and as a symbol of there status to the troops.[/quote]

The gate guards see the fast approaching LAV type and command M577.
The LAV is flashing its headlights, sounding it horn to Oh Canada.
This must be important!! The M577 must mean really important......



The barrier is pulled back and the K-nuk smartly salutes as a sign of respect
The LAV is driven to what has been identifed to be the Comms center.
At the same time the M577 accelerates in to the front doors of the large office building where the other M577 always park.







Both contain just over a ton each plus 500lbs of nuts, bolts and washers.
The twin VBIED go off.

There has never been any recorded history of the Brown Trousers using suicide weapons. It is against their nature, the do not do funny vests or ruin good running cars.

This must be Al Kabab.

Maple Leaf Landing
Everyone at the base dived for cover following the two VBIEDS explosions, afterwards the soliders stationed there all grabbed what ever extinguishers they could find to put out the fire from the explosion.

At the docks the Base Commander was doing a check list of supplies when he heard the explosion and saw smoke coming from the front gates, he immediately jumped into his jeep and raced to the scene to find a lot of damaged buildings soliders putting out fires, medics picking up the injured and piles of body bags.

(Base Commander): "What the hell just happened here?"

(Canadian Sergent): "Two IED s went off sir they where in the M557s that came in from the front gate, looks like an AL-Kabab attack sir."

(Base Commander): "But how?"

*** EDIT
Mech how about . The commander jumps in his jeep and is about to rush to the site of the bombing but then remembers that IED often come in pairs and we had that nasty drone Yesterday. So he makes his way to a safe location and gets others to inform him of what just went down.***

The Brown Trousers having captured a LAV after the very first K-nuk adventure into T.Zeina had traded it to Al-Kabab.
The two groups had been at each others throats until the major K-nuk assault last week, after that a common enemy forced them to cooperate.
Al Kabab had been in these parts for a long time so the M577 may have been captured from the CofC backed factions.

The BT command cell knew something was in the planning but not the timing.
Upon conformation of the VBIED attack the BT, knowing the recovery and chaos would be in full swing orders another 8 Katyusha's from the Ksar area in to the port. Severn hit the general area.



Daytime launches have been rare but this is worth the effort.

This is my Brown trousers command cell, it is normally less than five. They tend to operate from underground tunnels but can use the shanty town or tented part of the city. Transport is by Land Rover, Limey cabs or on foot with a donkey.
Support cells (comms, logistics, advisors, planing and security etc) are nearby but connect in a very open lattice work structure with little face to face.

Maple Leaf Landing
(Canadian Base Commander): (slams his fist on the table) "Danm it!! Now we have to deal with both AL-Kabab and the Brown Trousers at the same time?!?, How could this have happened???, for now on EVERY VEHICLE will have to be inspected outside the gates BEFORE they come in to ANYONE of our Bases and outposts. it looks like we have to accelerate our plans, it seem that these 2 militant groups have joined forces some how? deal with the BT in the Ksar area first, then will try to take out Al-Kabab.

T.Zeina area Canadian Block
The Canadian army forces there will plan out a offensive on the Ksar area, there objective is the main radio station that BT is using to coordinate there attacks, then to find the BT groups leader and kill him.

The purpose of an M577 COMMAND POST VEHICLE is to serve as a COMMAND POST, not as a status vehicle for officers on parade. They are normally co-located with several other M577s serving ops, intelligence and commo sections, and perhaps the arty liaison track. The occupants may include staff sections, ie. assistant staff officers, NCOs, and enlisted personnel. The PRIMARY officers - commander, xo, operations - use their tanks, M2s, M113s, or HUMVEEs, to get around the battlefield. They MAY even WALK, but they need their M577s at the TOC to maintain communications and coordinate the battle. The TOC is usually in a location that can be more easily secured and concealed and not positioned so directly in the battle, regardless of the way the Canadians currently use "there" M577s. With all those Canadian troops and vehicles in that poor little town, there can't be any parking for Brown trouser technicals. Not a hotel room left in town for a terrorist. Bet the Canadians didn't think to bring the porta-potties, either. "Hey! That ain't a landmine, but you don't wanna step in it."

With all the officers showing "there" status, snipers must be having a field day...

Canadian Occupied T.Zeina
In preperation for the eventual siege of the Ksar area, M109s from the Royal Regiment of Canadian Arttilery began counter battery operations against the Brown Trousers rocket launcher positions. The Regiments spotters had to go on the rooftops to track where the rocket launchers are based on where the rockets came from. once that operation is done, infantry from the Queens own rifles and Winnipeg Grenadiers, supported by Armored vehicles from the Sherbrooke Fusiliers and Fort Gray Horse will make there way into the area to flush out the remaining Brown Trousers from the area.

Thanks Gator, just bits I have, not much in truth but I hope to use them all on the Yer Bouti City soon. Must get back to the real Army in a bit. Just killing time waiting for the list.

K-nuk Occupied half of T.Zeina.

The K-nuks now hold over 50% of the area just 1000 homes (3,000 rooms) to go to take all of T.Zeina, There may be more tunnels too.

The K-nuk 109's prove to be more battle ready and competent than the rest of the force.
In short order they completely take out.
2 Schools, 1 place of worship, 4 of the main crossroads in Ksar (making them unusable).
2 groves of fig trees, 1 cemetery and 6 areas of open dirt and sand.

The firing of two single Katyusha's this morning from the still BT occupied half of T.Zeina was deemed too close for comfort by the M109 battery commander and conformation was sort , saving the K-nuk forward position 50 meters away.

The first roadside IED went off today on the route from the Northern beach outpost to the T.Zeina foothold. The LAV 3 was very lucky in it's position on the road at the time, just clipping the outer edge of a mechanical tip switch. It lost the two front right wheels (crew shaken but not stirred). The hull was penetrated damaging the engine but saving the driver.

Mech, How many ships are at the single pier in the port and how far off shore are your battleships?

From the Brown Trousers field book of naughtiness, page107.
For a good camera at 100 metres (330 ft) above sea level, the horizon is at a distance of 36 kilometres (22 mi).
