OPERATION TEAM YANKEE

This mission is open to: OCB MEMBERS AND INVITED GUESTS

 

 


 

 


Situation:

 

US Forces have decided to move into the Russian province of Ruha and set up a base area for further operations into Russian territory. Their base is not yet established as they have only just moved into the area. There are scout patrols that have moved south from the northern area of the province that are performing recon tasks on possible FOB locations.

 

The CIA are also involved and they appear to have been operating covertly for some time. Local Comrades have reported the US presence to Comrade PUTIN, and as a result the CIA, in direct contravention of their charter, executed our local commissar, his wife and two children. We have captured these capitalist scum and will have our revenge!

 

They are uninvited, and we will push them back out of our territory!

 

 

 

TOPO: Green fields, light to medium forested areas, sealed roads, railway line and mainly level terrain.

 

EN: US conventional light infantry are operating in the northern part of the area. SF patrols have been observed patrolling the central part of the region. They are also posting troops to protect critical infrastructure like railway lines and bridges.

 

FR: OCB 3rd Russian Rifle Platoon has been sent to remove these imperialist invaders. We do not need heavy support, we are Russians!

 

CIV: Civilians have fled due to the CIA execution of local leaders.

 

INTEL: Other than that we know the US forces have started to invade Russian territory, little is known about their force capability. They have been moving supplies into the southern part of the territory with plans to establish a large base there.

 

MISSION:

  • Eliminate all US forces, including vehicles and supplies. Drive them off our soil.

EXECUTION:

 

OCB 3rd Russian Rifle Platoon is normally posted to this region, it is our area and we know it well. We will conduct patrols north of our logistics base and patrol to contact.

 

DETAILED TASKINGS:

 

We are moving as one infantry section. Detailed tasks will be given as our patrol commences and according to the situation.

 

ADMIN & LOG:

 

The team will have as much time as they require to gear up.

 

COMMAND & SIGNALS:

 

Commanders (to be nominated at mission briefing time) will take command of their respective sections and do whatever they think is required to complete mission objectives keeping in mind the instructions.

 

VITAL INFORMATION:

  • REVIVE IS ENABLED
  • RESPAWN HAS BEEN ADDED DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE MISSION - LIMITED

Mod Requirements:

  • Download the attached .html file (IN THE CALENDAR EVENT POST)
  • Open your steam Arma 3 game launcher
  • Go to Mods
  • DRAG this file ONTO your MODS section in your steam launcher
  • This will load the mods needed, and or prompt you to download the mods needed.

Thanks to Howie for this neat trick!


Zeus Tutorial - Achilles Mod

Posted by Valour - 22 Jun 2018 11:29 AM

Many of your have not had much exposure to using Zeus in game.   This tutorial shows you how to use Zeus with the Achilles mod.   This has been created in the interests of inspiring more of you to consider running tactical missions.

 


ALiVE CTAB Tutorial

Posted by Valour - 22 Jun 2018 10:36 AM

I've had a few questions about how this ALiVE stuff works.  Here is a tutorial for those who are commanding the missions on how to use the Combat Support Tablet (CTAB).  Anyone can run the mission using this equipment.  Some functions (Admin functions) will not be available unless you are logged into game admin.

 

One thing I forgot to mention: After creating a task, or auto assigning tasks for your side, there will be a delay before the task pops up. It takes time, sometimes a few minutes, for the mod to generate the tasks.  So if you create a task and nothing is happening, don't panic, it IS working, it just needs some time to work.

To give you some idea of what ALiVE mod does, when you go to our ALiVE ORBAT page, click on TALON in the Recent Operations Section or click here. It will show you a map of all movements by individual player during the previous or current session.   Then all the stats also appear on that page to the right.  It's an impressive system.

 

Session dates have been added to the calendar.  RSVP for those dates if you want to participate.   IF there is a number of players online, but no date has been planned, you may enter and engage in operations.  One of those players MUST BE AN OCB ADMIN.

 

List of Admins:

 

Valour

Tromac

CraftyJoe

Ozone

Admins - instructions for using the mission will be detailed shortly.


NCO Course - Content List

Posted by Valour - 14 Jun 2018 10:33 AM

For those that are required (Current NCO) or those who wish to attend to be further trained and eligible for promotion, here is a brief snapshot of the course sessions and the lessons for each session:

 

ncolessons.png

 

Planning and running this course is a considerable undertaking, with content being written and lesson plans being developed for instructors to deliver this training, so those attending are required to take the training seriously and be willing to step up to demonstrate they have taken on board the content through assessment tasks to confirm basic skills.

 

In our operational missions, be they standard tac mission or MSO session, NCO's will be expected to step up and take command of their troops utilising the skills learned in training.   After the course no one is expected to be awesome at leading a section, but with practice members will become effective section commanders.  There is an expectation that NCO will not only have the responsibility of leading their sections, but some administration tasks following operations.   You want to hold the rank, expect to do some work to support your section.

 

The lessons will follow a formal format, so when training is being conducted, game face on, no mucking around, listen and learn.  We will still have fun though.

 

The training is not designed to be difficult, but it will challenge you at times and require you to step up and take command of your section in some stressful situations.   You'll need to think of not just your section, but the overall situation you are in, and the battlespace as a whole as it relates to your mission task.

 

We are lifting our overall standards, and expecting a greater level of professionalism and operational competence, this course will support that aim.  I encourage all members to nominate themselves for this course when it starts.   Session one will be starting this month.  Sessions can be repeated for those that miss out on initial dates, so everyone will get a run whether you can make it the first time or not.

 

*This course is open to OCB members only
