Default Re: Egyptian-Libyan war miniseries (1977)

And the third one...

Egyptian-Libyan War of 1977 - Part 3 - The Camp*
*
Date: July 23, 1977*
*
Battle Location: deserts near Al-Jaghbub, close to border with Egypt, Libya*
*
Battle Type: Egyptian commando raid vs. Rebels/Libya defence*
*
*
When Libyan brigades to the north were decimated a day before and Egyptian divisions poured into Libya and chased for Tobruk, Arab states - as mentinoed previously - pushed Sadat for a ceasefire and halting the advance. Sadat finally agreed, but there was one more thing to do.

Several hunded kilometres to the south of Sollum lies the oasis town of Al-Jaghbub. This oasis is probably more widely known under Italian name Giarabub, as it was a stage of siege and fierce engagement during World War 2. Since Italians saw the strategic potential of this place and carried out raids towards Sudan, Al-Jaghbub was as well communicated with the rest of Libya as it remained small and lowly populated. Knowing this, Kaddafi's military set up a number of training camps in the area. Within those camps various rebel groups were trained, for instance those that seeked control of Auzou strip in northern Chad. Also - according to Egyptian intelligence - a number people conducting terrorist acts against Egypt came out of Al-Jaghbub.

On July 23, when combat was dying down in the north, Egyptian commando force was deployed via helicopters and raided Al-Jaghbub camp, in result leading to its destruction. Commanos destoyed or captured a significant number of weapons and other light equipment. The raid further diminished Libyan capabilities of striking not only its eastern neighbour, but also all others.

You are a commander of two Egyptian commando heloborne assault companies and a weapons company. Cairo believes it is more than enough to crush Al-Jaghbub training camp. Intelligence believes that number of rebels oscillates around two hundred randomly armed people. They are not expected to put stiff resistance, but expect the camp to have fortified defensive positions. Choose your LZ and take it. Be careful: we are coming in fast and have element of surprise, but the longer you wait with dropping your force, the greater chance it is for them to man their AA weapons should they have any.
