Oh crap, the existing staff is crap. The XO must not be good either.
Bring entire new staff out, needing new S-1,2,3,4,5,6. Wow.
Bringing new radio operators, the entire support unit?

A town in Newfoundland, Canada



The origin of Dildo's name is uncertain. As early as 1711, it was being used for a tiny offshore island there, but the island's connection with any kind of ** CENSORED ** toy is uncertain at best. At the time, “dildo” was a word used for any cylindrical object, from nautical pins to test tubes.

Ontario Canada.
In a overgrown Abandoned hanger near Hamlton Ontario's international airport, a bunch of teens on dirt bikes found a couple of small odd looking aircraft in various stages of decay.

Most where the size of model aircraft with the numbers "RQ-20" and "RQ-11" written on them. then they came across a huge aircraft with the number "MQ-9" they have never seen these types of planes before, curious they took one of the "RQ-11" planes back home to tinker with it, turns out it runs on some sort of remote control and the components look military grade, eventually they got it rebuilt and working under one of their RC aircraft controllers and took it to a open field near a local school to fly it.
This caught the attention of some locals kids thinking that is a cool plane, and a off duty officer from the NCAF who questioned the teens on where they found this plane? As it bears the marking of the old RCAF, they told them about the abandoned hanger, and the officer realized what they are. UAV's he had heard story's of these things being used to gather intel in more precise detail better then any manned recon aircraft, the NCAF then visited the hanger to recover these long lost UAVs, serviced the smaller UAVs and quickly shipped them out to our forces in Egypt as soon as possible.

Well Chris these UAVs where sitting unused and forgotten about in that Old hanger for years, now they are being quickly serviced and sent out by cargo plane to catch up with the reinforcements sent to Egypt on Friday. Hopefully they will provide the edge we need against the EE in the Suez Can-al as it’s not looking good right now.

The NC and ROD military have advanced from Jordan, crossing the Sinai, crossing the Suez waterway, into Egypt proper.. fast moving series of engagements.
How many CH-47 Chinooks do you have? Thought I had a few. All you squadrons....

Only 3 squadrons in my division is using CH-47 Chinooks though they where used to get the 1st infantry Brigade over the can-al after we unfortunately destroyed the highway 50 bridge days earlier, so it was a slow engagement something that the ROD is greatly disappointed at us now.

On Friday we plan to march back to the city of Suez to try to make a second attempt to remove the Imperial marines there, however their use of Asymmetrical Warfare gave us problems the first time around, I have yet to figure out how to best this kind of warfare, which eludes me.

The Imperial Marines are fighting as units: squads, teams, platoons, companies, etc. Those people are not of the local area, so they should not be able to melt into the population. Getting into urban fighting is a tough way to go. Ask the Germans that were in Stalingrad.
. Are you able to isolate the city of Suez? If you remember fighting in Nouakchott, Mauritania? In our zone, used the AH-1 Cobras to help observe and destroy the embedded soldiers, secured a perimeter of several blocks with strong units on the intersections to eliminate any resupply or retreating units. Advanced into house by house with strong fire support... slow, painful, destructive.
. Can you bypass with a large security force setting up a ring around, them move forward? Counting on help from the locals?

Unfortunately no we did not isolate the city of Suez we only took the western end of the city and setup fixed positions to secure it originally, the locals who lived their has since fled thanks to the shelling done by the imperials, our helicopters are only just transports, we had no gunships in the area, then in the morning we staged a massed infantry wave attack to try to clear the buildings out, we suffered, heavy losses and that left us short handed, then after a day, we abandoned the city to help clear out the wreckage of the bridge until we got our reinforcements on Friday, then will make a second attempt on the city.

And Yes I do Remember the Mess that was the Mauritaina campaign, I was fighting the brown trouser after they attacked my Armoured column, I assumed that those guys where uneducated to conduct conventional warfare tactics. I was wrong.

The shelling that caused all of the damage was Canadian. A "saturation bombardment" if you recall. You need to stop worrying about the irregular warfare and start learning to fight a modern war. You're trying to fight World War 1 in 2020 and your troops are dying by the truck load.

Yea I got a little carried away with the artillery strike, that will not happen this time.

Currently reading FM 7-8 for details on squad tactics.

Mech,
I forget about the BT, those cheeky lil’ bas-tards. Hitler thought warfare was a bit like entering a dark room, you know where the furniture is, but you are not sure. Her also did not want a two front war. So he attacked Russia any way thinking the rotten structure would collapse.

Highway 50, Egypt.

NCAF Soldiers onboard the M35 trucks examines their new RQ-11 UAVs trying to figuring out how these things work, theres no instruction manual to go by as a reference, but they will have plenty of time to figure out before they reach Badr City tonight to confront the Imperials 215th Armor division as part of the RODs "Operation Mongoose", and we just got word that those Imperial Marines we fought in Suez City days earlier, had withdrawn to the west to link up with the rest of the Imperial forces, this could pose a problem for us.

Fortunately we got fresh reinforcements, to replenish our heavy losses, the officers are rushing through the FM 7-8 manual in order to develop better tactics that we can use aginest the Imperials.

With news of the loss of the Halifax Frigate HMCS Fredricton in the Suez war. The New Canadian government has pulled funding from the NCAFs own Spec Ops program to which it had been delayed for awhile, in order to replace the old Halifax frigate. Any suggestions for a New Frigate class for the Fredricton would be Appreciated.

You're not going to find a silver bullet for defeating anyone in the FM 7-8. That is the manual for US infantry squads and platoons. You need to read that manual because it can be your foundation. Learn the basics first and master one level before you move up to the next level. Your division in Egypt has big issues because they have no foundation. Squads don't even know how to fight, so how can you fight platoons, companies, battalions, etc?
