Good job on disabling the southern airfield of Tembeland.
The time has come to attempt to strike at one of the airfields, in this operation your primary objective is to utilize the BM-21 grad's you've been given, to launch an artillery strike at the southern airfield.
You'll be moving down past Southern lapangan, and the forested areas south west of the town, to the airfield and resort of Tepi Pantai.
With a foothold secured on the island, we've been tasked to push up along the main road leading to the city of Lapangan and beyond. The purpose of this, is to gain ground close enough to the airports to hit them with our BM-21 Grads.
You will move up to and past the 98th Mechanized, which after heavy fighting against the QRF earlier, ended up losing their ammo truck. If possible lend them your ammo truck until they can get a replacement.
Our initial attack will be on the Besar Airbase and the small town of Bagain.
Besar will allow us to use the enemies own infrastructure to bring in and launch our own air support and we're securing Bagain since it's in an easily defendable location (refer to the below image)
Capt. it has come to our attention through Army intelligence that insurgent forces have acquired the MLRS BM-21 Grad's from unknown suppliers. Our agents have tracked the elements transporting these vehicles to the mountains west of Zargabad. It is of the utmost importance that we destroy these vehicles before the insurgents even have time to do their preliminary testing. You will be inserted in the area with moderate resources with the inclusion of Littlebird, Chinook and Blackhawk helicopters.
After the country wide resurgence of insurgent activity we've been tasked to start making the streets of Zargabad safe again. The PMC's active in town have been withdrawn and are no longer operating in the area. The intel we gathered from them does clearly show that we are dealing with a mad enemy who will not take kindly to hesitation. Therefore we are to show our presence and deny the enemy the comfort of unfettered access the the city and it's population. They terrorise people with their ideology and suppress resistance with extreme malice and violence.

Standard SOP apply, join your team as per usual. Keep an eye on your weight and stamina in preparation.
We are six years into the occupation. It has been a ride for us. A boring one though one might say. Long hours of just standing here, standing there, keep an eye on this, keep an eye on that. We welcomed the occasional firefight but they were over quickly. These fucking yokels can't shoot for shit.
We had an incident north of Ireland 2 days ago, a NATO aircraft was shot at and heavily damaged by an unknown agressor about 40 clicks off the north western coast of Ireland, the aircraft attempted to return back to a NATO base in England, but ultimately the pilot had to eject when he suffered a complete engine shutdown.
The pilot was found by search and rescue 18 hours ago, and the aircraft wreck was secured early on after the incident, but the Black box was nowhere to be found.
We've deployed to Shapur, in response to our Kurdish allies in the area requesting assistance with rooting out one of the last IS strongholds in the area.
The Kurds ended up taking heavy casualties last night, after a failed flanking manouver left 2 of their squads cut off, and any attempt at regrouping with the elements was met with heavy enemy resistance.
