This mission is open to: OCB MEMBERS AND INVITED GUESTS
British Military Intelligence Officer Captain Shaun Hoopert was operating in Zargabad Afghanistan for the purpose of providing information on the reformation of the Taliban following the transition of responsibility for security from ISAF forces to the Afghan National Army (ANA). The ANA have been ineffective in their mission to prevent the Taliban from re-establishing themselves in the region. Capt Hoopert has failed to contact his HQ for three days, after which the Taliban announced they had captured an infidel spy and they were demanding $50 Million for his safe return within one week. If their demand is not met, they have stated his public execution will be recorded and posted on the internet for all to see.
TOPO: Zargabad is an arid region with small villages, tracks and roads. The terrain is mostly flat.
EN: The enemy are Taliban insurgents, they are experienced and fearless fighters that do not fear death. They consider themselves to be engaged in a holy war, a mission from god so they are fanatical. They are equipped with small arms, light AT weapons and some vehicles. Their numbers are unknown, but during ISAF operations prior to the handover to the ANA, the ISAF experienced regular heavy fighting in this region. This could indicate the enemy numbers are large and their local support well established.
FR: Our SF recon element consists of 12 members, working in two teams of six. There is a small security detail at our makeshift FOB, but there are no other friendlies in the area.
CIV: There are civilians in the area that are either hostile or indifferent to friendly forces. We are not expected to be in the area, so avoid contact with all civilians. If they detect our troops they may alert the enemy.
INTEL: Capt Hoopert's location is not known. There is a small enemy factory in the area from which we may be able to gather information to locate the hostage. This factory is where the leadership of the enemy is located.
To locate and rescue Capt Hoopert and return him to safely to our FOB.
Our SF recon team will deploy via HELO into a central area away from the built up area. The team will patrol on foot to the factory, locate any intel that can ID the hostage location. Once intel has been received, the SF team will be tasked from there to find Capt Hoopert.
After insertion, SF team to separate into two teams of six. Patrol to location of factory and await further orders.
This is a SF Mission. The locals, including the enemy do not know we are in the area. ALL TEAM MEMBERS ARE TO USE SILENCED WEAPONS ONLY. ENEMY ARE TO BE TAKEN OUT QUIETLY. IF WE HAVE SEEN ENEMY BUT ARE STILL UNDETECTED, INDICATE CONTACT TO TEAM AND COORDINATE SWIFT AND SILENT PROSECUTION OF TARGETS. IF SEEN BY THE ENEMY, DO NOT WAIT BEFORE FIRING - TAKE THEM OUT BEFORE THEY GET ROUNDS OFF.
ADMIN & LOG:
The team will have two minutes to gear up - you will start with everything you need to carry out the task. Do not, I say again DO NOT USE ANYTHING OTHER THAN A SILENCED WEAPON. If the enemy kicks off, due to the suspected high number of fighters, we are going to be in a world of shit.
