There has been a change of plans since Australia and India are preoccupied in Venezuela fighting Al-Kabab.

Canada alone will take a second shot at the Brown Trousers, this new operation lead by a new Commander who has already Studied the ROD's Treaties, they will make land fall at Maple Leaf Landing rebuild it back up to full status, then launch another counter insurgency operation, in T.zeina and the Kasar areas.

There mission statement is to try to remove these militants from those areas again, however it will be more difficult then before since the locals living in those parts of the capital now fully support and trust the Brown Trousers, plus they have grown much larger than last time, but we will try to convince these people, somehow.

(7.62 are you ready for round 2?)

The CoC military has brought up heavy equipment, even though being in the city usually involves more infantry for a NASTY fight, causalities are high, get personal. So be it.
Brought up several batteries of mortars and artillery, including the M109, D-20, D-30 and M107 175mm guns and M110 8 inch howitzer batteries. Ammo includes HE, smoke, WP, and laser targeted rounds and GPS programed rounds. The hope is that collateral damage will be reduced to save homes, businesses and lives. The placement will be layered to reduce the probability of effective counter-battery fire.
. Also rocket launchers have been brought up are BM-21, Valkyrie, and MLRS and Himars systems. These will be focused more on targets in open terrain and counter-battery. Discussion of chemical rounds was conducted to knock people out including: nitrous oxide, halothane, enflurane, and chloroform. There will be some headaches and people throwing up when they wake up. But otherwise alive and well within hours.

Foxy News with Sugar Sweet reporting, "the CoC military is bring up some big tracked vehicles. I have been told that these are to carry people into close combat situations in a protected vehicle. Here is a picture of one being used."
File Photo: http://www.ghqmodels.com/store/is13.html
" It carries a squad of men that dismount to subdue the rebels, terrorists, the BT and other killers. I have been told that the rebels and terrorists are fighting diligently, fighting hard, killing a lot of people and destroying homes. They are using some unique techniques to fight against the Peace Keepers.The various bands are fighting against each other without regard to life or limb of the people living in the neighborhoods. We will stay on top of this story to keep you informed. This is Miss Sugar Sweet for Foxy News. Have a sweet day today."

How many people are you putting ashore? You have 4 light infantry battalions for security. How many dudes is that? 3,000 or so? Remember that you will need other units to keep those infantrymen and engineers functioning. You will need some kind of command and control apparatus Ė a commander and a staff, plus communications assets to keep you talking to the ships and to each other. You will need supply assets to keep the boys fed and watered and supplied with all the stuff a modern army needs. Each soldier in an arid region will need between 6 and 9 gallons of water per day to operate. You will need food, ammunition, deodorant, toothpaste, batteries of all sizes. Donít forget routine stuff like pencils, paper, and ink cartridges for your printers! Apparently you will need tons of construction equipment and supplies to rebuild as well. And youíll need medical support to keep them healthy. Donít forget about all these guys and remember that the proportion of support guys to combat guys increases as the size of your force increases.

Remember to be proactive with supply and with moving troops. You canít just teleport stuff from Canada, so youíll have to plan ahead to make sure things arrive at the right time.

And how about posting some pics this time?

HEY! It ain't a damned DATE! Leave the deodorant and aftershave in Canada. The bad guys can smell that stuff from down the street. It telegraphs your presence, usually your position. Common sense is a requisite, although, if you applied common sense, you would stay in Canada. Apply MYOB in liberal doses and call me in two weeks.

The Commander of this whole operation and his staff are currently onboard the Silverdart monitoring the progress of the rebuilding effort.


The 3 Infantry Battalions and the 1st Hussars armored recon units are guarding the ports entrance aginest Brown Trouser attacks during the rebuilding process.

The Three large civilian Cargo ships, carry's all the supplies needed for the troops and workers, to complete this first part of the operation.

Once the rebuilding is done we can send in the main force to make the attempt in T.zeina.

(Ill try to post pics as best as i can).

The long range snipers started firing as soon as the first troops hit the ground.
A wall of AAA from several ZU23-2's in the Sebkha area greeted the Chinooks keeping them well clear of the city itself.
However the 23mm rounds only reach out effectively to about 2 1/2 Kms.
Lucky for the K-nuks no heavy weapons or troops had been placed in the old port, giving them an LZ for now. If they can keep it will depend on their actions over the coming days.

In the city the Brown Trousers have consolidated their hold over T. Zeina, Ksar, Elmina, Sebkha and out to the North coast outpost.
They are seen as the local protection force by this populace and generally have their support.
A new local political party has formed called the Mauritan Freedom Party.
These MF's now claims to speak for almost 40% of the city and plan to form the new government of the Country.

Anton Haas Jacobie has just indicated to me that 43 Battery (140mm) was also involved, commanded by Andre Schoonwinkel

Would they have been part of the main 10 Art Bde force or the 4 Art Regt reserve?

Maple Leaf Landing
The rebuilding of the base is well underway, so far the brown trousers have made no attempts of attacking the port again. the rebuilding process will take weeks, a large supply depot will be built just south of the port so it can hold supplies need for a large Canadian army.

Onboard the Siliver Dart, the Canadian Commander is trying to figure out how this new plan of removing the Brown Trousers from the area is going to work, for starters the local population now fully supports the militant group due to the 1st counter insurgency operation ending in disaster, so earning the trust of the locals is out of the question, second its now confirmed the existence of Ballistic missiles in the Brown Trousers inventory in the form of SS-21 Scarabs so those missiles and there launchers will have to be taken out first before we can proceed with the operation. lastly its impossible to take back our holdings near T.zeina since BT took over Sebkha and Elmina areas blocking access to it. the strategists will be hard at work for weeks to come up with the idea how to proceed, once the Landing is rebuilt and troops starts to flow in again.

Mauritaniadom
In the western zone
Approaching Riach area from the south a brigade is deployed with support elements attached: logistics, medical, weather & meteorological group, artillery, police & security, Intel, etc. 143 Battalion (Rambo) with armor and Mech Infantry is on the Southern Hwy moving along the road and to the west of the Southern Hwy to primarily act a flank protection. Snipers are out and posted along with drones airborne. Pushing up just to the east of the Southern Hwy is 148 Battalion (Rock) with 3 companies of Mechanized Infantry riding in Centurion APCs , each has attached 5 Merkavas for direct support, including the commander and XO are allocated to a company each that are the spear/vanguard of the push. The third company is the close reserve with a platoon of 4 Merkavas. Engineers are attached along with M728 with 165mm demo gun for each company for working through the houses....
. Laser designation teams are ready along with mortars, howitzers, guns and rockets. Grids are laid out to the city block, to the house, in some cases to the side of the house. Counter battery is set up to 6 levels with multiple batteries at each level.
The first two companies advanced in the heavy Centurion APCs with observers looking out for any resistance. Snipers and observers looking for anyone carrying a weapon will be shot. Leaflets have been dropped that last 2 days to inform the citizens and any people in the resistance that carrying a weapon can be dangerous to their well being.
As three men were walking across a street in the neighborhood on the edge of the home development, two were carrying AK-47s. A shot rang out, Bamn, in the left temple, the body dropped a second later after being hit by a .338. Another shot range out hitting the other man carrying an AK in the right check from a .308 round. The third man was on the ground with wetness running down his legs. He rolled into a ditch that served also for some human and animal waste, crawling away.
. In the opening WP smoke rounds were hitting 200 yards west of the the Southern Hwy, making a line due north. Merkava IV and Pumas advanced quickly, turning in 10 blocks north into the area of Riach. From the west an similar battalion of was moving in along the same axis heading west to meet up with the other cutoff battalion. Red-Yellow panels were on all the vehicles roof and front hull. Each had 3 companies of infantry that deployed taking the buildings to the north before any resistance could be set up. A few people did run for and a few did grap weapons, all were shot dying at the scene. One Commonwealth soldier and 4 others were injured. Engineers came to set up razor wire to the north of these homes and buildings for a border. When fire from a house across a street happened the targeting observer put the laser on the building with 3 120mm rounds fired from a mortar. All impacted on the house inside destroying the house. There was not any more firing from that location. M548 came in behind the Pumas carrying barricades for road set up, sandbags. They were set up fairly quickly, smoke was released to obscure any resistance that might impede the road block and security points. Taking 3 hours to set up properly, wish some more work to be completed during the evening.
. From the west, south of the cutoff line another company came in entering the city just south of the 10 block line. Cobras and OH-1s flying overhead keeping an eye out along with the drones. So far there have not been any SAMs fired, even though some small arms has been directed at the helicopters. When it becomes known where the fire comes from a laser targets the building and a minute later the building is rubble.
In the evening from questioning this action was a surprise movement with overwhelming force. Many that are in the resistance regardless of group affiliation have been surprised. Some of the locals come in for food and medical treatment have let us know where the resistance, guerrillas are living.
. Assault teams approach those houses with a few minutes of discussion. If the person does not surrender, nonlethal action is usually taken with smoke grenades and teargas. If that does not work, it becomes more serious. Some come running out with hands in the air with clothes on fire. The are instructed to lay down and roll, as they are covered blankets and zip-tied. Some have been instructed to roll over take their shirts and pants off. A few have run out of the house with weapons firing, one as he was coughing from smoke.... they were dropped with multiple entry points and exit points.

Guyana
South America
The CoC has been able to secure 7 C-nuks from Al Kabab in Brazil. One was in severe medical condition with surgery on a DDH north of Guyana. 6 others are secure being cared for, to be sent to the DDH soon. Information has been transmitted to Canadian Military HQ Atlantic informing them of the 7 soldiers, condition and location of each. Cpl Hotch might be flown to Ft. Sherman for recovery and further medical attention. The 6 remaining soldiers are expected to be transferred to a ship, perhaps the DDH. awaiting coordination with the Canadian Military for transfer.

Why is earning the trust of the locals out of the question? It will be really really hard to do, but I think you put unnecessary constraints on your operation. Put a public relations guy, a civil affairs guy, and a PSYOPS guy on your staff ad come up with a plan to make BT look bad and make Canada look good. Of course you can't destroy the city and try to be their friends at the same time, but you should try to think outside the box.

Well the reason why its out of the question is due to the fact that in the previous operation to remove the militants out of T.zeina we did render most of that area unlivable after the Winnipeg Grenadiers spent days lobbing Grenades and PIAT rounds though the windows of houses and buildings in order to quickly flush out hidden BT militants inside, that forced the population to flee from that area and move to Kasar for safety, plus the M109s from the Royal Artillery Regiment of Canada, did preform counter battery operations to get rid of those annoying homemade Rocket Launchers in said Kasar area. so yea trying to form public relations with these locals after what happened last time, is next to impossible, more likely they will shoot any public relations official on site rather then talk.

Don't send public relations guys into town, have them on your staff to develop talking points and a narrative that will convince the public that all the destruction is BT's fault. Figure out how to make the public think that you were defensing yourself and that BT is stealing from them and workinf with criminals and terrorists and embezzling
Do some old school Mission Impossible stuff! You need to hire a political campaign director to run your campaign.
