Default War of Final Resolution

[I'm trying something new and so please let me know if this format of AAR is interesting and if you would like to see more. The idea is to provided a fully dramatized view of the events of the battle. The following discription is of the opening action of a battle that I finished just a while ago. It's may be a little rough. I'm looking for suggustions, what people like to see in an AAR ect. Enough talk. I'll let the Lt. Col. Take it from here]

Lt. Col Hutchins stared out across the Afghan desert. The enemy was out there in large numbers but he didn't know where. His job was to not only find them but encourage them to be elsewhere. Like Hell for instance. Since the terrorist attack in Torino at the Olympic Games that killed over half the athletes from the US team, there was a sense of hatred that moved the American people to demand resolution. It had only been a few weeks since the state department had positively linked the attacks to the Afghan government and some of their pet terrorists. His men had been on alert and now prepared to embark on a war of final resolution.

He could just make out the hills surrounding the valley where he and his staff were set up in the predawn light. The sound of Major Fox's modified Calvary troop preparing to move out caught his attention. The "thump, thump, thump" of the blackhawks from Captain Ruiz's command starting their roaters also came to his ears from his left. And To his right could just make out the distant shouts of Captain Leonard mech infantry organizing and loading up. "I will need to talk to everyone about the element of surprise." he thought. At least Captain Gilmore had gotten his artillery park set up quietly and while he knew where Captain Eubank and his rangers were on the map, he knew they would be impossible to find out in the desert. Hutchins returned to the satellite map and looked over the battle plan again. The area was uneven desert with lots of hills and shallow washes. There were some trees, but they seemed few and far between. The landscape was dominated by two large hills that rose out of the desert like two great fortresses. The larger was located in the center of their operating area and was code named Castle Rock. CR, as they code went, was actually two hills with a saddle between them that dominated the area around it. Just north of CR was "the Hill," which rose like a spire and overlooked the north part of the area. Those hills would need to be controlled. On both flanks the terrain was even and clear. He had plans for those but they would have to wait. He reviewed his plan then gave the order to begin the advance.

With a whine of tension and the "thump thump thump" of the rotors, 2nd Lt. Krotiak increased the throttle and lifted the big war bird into the air. His two gunners were alert and ready. They were headed for Castle Rock and didn't know what they would find there. In the back Captain Ruiz sat with his men, reviewing the objectives of their mission. Krotiak wasn't rich enough to fly the chopper in formation between the low hills, keep an eye out for SAMs, AA guns and MANPADS, and pay attention to Captain Ruiz giving instructions for those that would get out of the helo. Krotiak was mildly surprised, but very happy when they drew no fire and spotted no enemies. As he landed on a clear area towards he base of CR, he watched as the thirteen other choppers landed and discharged their cargo of trained fighters and their deadly equipment. Those Javelin teams were so comfortable with their weapon that it made Ruiz wince as they rushed out of the Blackhawks and secured themselves in the folds of the hill. Once Ruiz had watched his troops secure the hill above and around him, he nodded to Krotiak and jumped out himself. Krotiak throttled up, watching his ground pounding fellows begin their preparations as he turned his bird back towards the protection of Captain Eubank's position.

Major Fox looked out over the advancing column with a sense of pride. He felt confidant that the M1A2 Abrams that were the backbone of his formation could handle anything the Afghans could throw at them. He was still a cautious man. Which is why he ordered the tanks to button up and lay low when a Kiowa chopper was spotted on the east side of The Hill. He was more worried about the element of surprise than any ability of the bird to destroy. It appeared to be armed with rockets, not ATGM, so that was a small grace. But where there were eyes for seeing there would be hands for beating. Sure enough, a moment later his communications man told him that Ruiz had conformation of two platoons of AFVs and APCs moving up the backside of The Hill towards his position. He knew that Ruiz's troops on his left had a good view of the area his troops would be moving through Well, Fox thought, between the four linebacker SP-SAMs that Gilmore had loaned him, Ruiz's Javelins, and his own units, Fox could see a bad day in store for the enemy...

The driver of the land rover moved up the backside of the castle-like rock with care. Army scouts that were noisy and blundered around didn't get promoted, often because they were dead. His partner, who manned the HMG were following there companion rover to a position where they could over see the American advance. Although he couldn't see them the man knew their tanks were located to the north and were in the process of skirting the south side of the hill in order to surprise the troops the chopper had seen. Between his position and the tanks he could just make out the trio of BTRs that were moving forward, watching the t55s flank. At that point the other rover crested the hill and they followed into the predawn light. They looked out over the valley and then everything went wrong. The radio buzzed to life. The chopper was taking fire from what appeared to be an attack helicopter and a mobile SAM platform. They had taken damage and were losing fuel rapidly. Before the man could consider the implications of losing their eyes in the sky he heard several noises and was horrified to see missile trails speeding from the as yet unseen slope in front of him towards the tanks that were hidden from his view. Again the radio buzzed with reports of surprise and alarm from the tank and BTR commanders, but half of the voices suddenly ceased. The other half continued to panic. Even though he couldn't see the tanks the man could see the fire and smoke coming from their now twisted wrecks. His eyes fell in sorrow. He started when the one of the BTRs exploded below him. The other two tried to maneuver, were also destroyed. Stunned the man realized that before the last one blew the driver and said the word "Abram." before his brain could even process this information, his companion land rover burst into flames with a roar. All of the sudden events had over ridden his body's survival instinct and he moved the rover closer to the edge of the hill. He saw multiple ATGM teams reloading, rifle squads and mmg teams set up all over the frontside of the hill like ants on an anthill. A movement to his left caught his eye and he turned to see a group of men lying in the short brush of the desert. He heard his gunner chamber the first round as the man turned the HMG towards this new threat, but it was too late. The last thing he saw was a soldier aiming a large tube at them and the tube belching fire. His last thought was, "How could they have gotten there so quickly?"

Sadly, I'm not going to be able to finish this battle's ARR becuase I finished it weeks ago and don't remember enough of the details to make it interesting. I could give you the unattractive lists of stats that I generated during the battle, but that is a little monotonous. I'm on to the second battle now and have been keeping better notes and writing the dramatic pieces as I go. Every turn has a "story" of what I consider the exciting/pivital/important part of the action for that turn. I'm currently on turn 8 and so will post the turn stories for those turns here soon. After that, I'll try to post right after the turn is played. For anyone who wants to see my notes on the turns to get the rest of the picture of the battle, I'll try to post those as well. I keep them in a double collumed word document. The file is currently 32 pages long and adds about a page or more per turn. It also takes me about an hour to play a single turn because of the notes. If I was smart I would have saved a copy of the map so all of my hex references would make more sense, but that will be for the next battle. Keep an eye out here in the next day or two (hopefully) to see updates.

S. Dunlap of CTPJ ETB looked at the walls of the ravine that his MRV was speeding down. He had no idea where the enemy was, but they knew that he was headed towards them at a cautiously as they could at high speed. The other forward elements were spread out behind him. “How’d I end up in front?” he wondered. Secretly he knew it was because he felt this mission was important. The enemy was stockpiling biological weapons in this fortified desert and he was determined to make sure that they were never used to hurt his family.

S. Leonard of BTSC AOP looked through his binoculars in all directions. In the North he could see where the southern platoon of AB was positioned. To the South, he couldn’t see the main attack force moving through the ravine, but he could see their destination clearly. He made radioed in for smoke in a few minutes to cover their assault of the suspected mine belt at the neck of the ravine. Further south he could see the forces that would be supporting them moving through the smoke screen. Good. Things were going according to plan. He looked back towards the direction 2nd Lt. Atkins flew off, leaving him on this hill. He was moving into position when he saw Atkins go evasive as he took fire, but at the time he was unable to see the shooter. After conferring with Atkin, Leonard plotted fire on some likely spots. He was going to need to get his ranges figured out, but at least he had incoming mail he could adjust. He settled down, his partner scanning the north, he the south. Where was the enemy?

1st Lt. Thornson of CTAK ABA sat in his Abram and waited. He could se the advance units unloading to being searching for the minefield that was expected. Several units had come under fire, but the enemy hadn’t been spotted yet. His platoon, all good men were currently looking over the area that their troops would be probing. Hopefully, his men would be able to spot and neutralize any threat to the engineers and then they would blast through the gap in the mines. That was the idea anyway. They would just have to see how it went.

1st Lt. Burr of CTEO AEA had been searching the desert when he got a frantic call from 2nd Lt. Lester. C. Martinez and his group of engineers had come under small arms fire from three platoons worth of troops NW of his position. After the initial shook had worn off, Martinez had spotted the enemy and was requesting additional firepower. Several APCs were in the process of sweeping the entrenched infantry with HMG fire when Burr sighted the troops and ordered his gunner to open fire. They put a spread of 120mm and HMG rounds into the trenches and were pleased when they had the first confirmed kill of the engagement. Burr congratulated his crew and then ordered them into the smoke that was hiding the six platoons of engineers and pioneers from the enemy’s weapons. He knew that they were going to need some heavy support if they were going to get through this.

1st Lt. Mathis of CTEN AEA looked out over the large depression that that lay before him. They had just come through the ravine that seemed to shield them from enemy eyes and now looked out over this large pit that they would need to skirt in order to reach the first check point. As division’s M1132 ESV pulled up near him, he noticed the difference between its bulldozer blade and the mine plow that his Abram sported. It was their job to clear the anticipated obstacles as quickly as possible and make a hole for the rest of the battalion to pour through. However, there wasn’t any work for them to do yet. The analysis boys had predicted mines at the entrance of the ravine they had just passed through, but there had been none. Now Mathis and his partner were riding point, on the look out for enemy forces both above ground and in it. Suddenly the noise of small caliber shells bouncing off of armor sounded to his left. The ESV was taking fire. Looking to their sensors, his crew was able to find it. A SPAA gun to the north west. They weren’t moving very fast so he lined up the barrel and let fly. The first shell missed, but the second found the mark. Satisfied, he smiled, but inwardly he was still worried. Where were those mines?!

S. Willis CTAL ABD pulled through the ravine at near 20 mph, moving his Abram up to support the units that had broken out into the wide depression code named the PIT. As he came close to level with the lead ENG Abrams, the one on his left belched fire and Willis’ staff told him that there were several SPAA ZSU-23-V4s spotted to the NW. It as he prepared to offer assistance, the radio announced that two Zeus were down but that there was one still tracking. Willis lined up and let fly. He grinned in satisfaction when it the confirmations of a kill came in.

2nd Lt. Damato’s of BHAH B radio buzzed in his warbird. The southern flank needed help uprooting some entrenched infantry that was impeding their progress. He angled south and began moving at high speed through the system of ravines that should hide him from eyes with AA guns. He drew fire once as he crossed a large, shallow depression where he could see friendly APCs moving across at high speed, but it was wide to his left. He nosed down and moved closer to the western wall, masking his Blackhawk from fire in that direction. Following the depression further south, he popped over the lip, and could see the southern flank. The airman on one of the 7.62 miniguns cried out as he heard the passage of shells, but none hit. All of the sudden, a sharp wind came up and hit the side of the warbird hard, Damato fought the stick but he was blown westward. He could see the burst of fire from a location about couple of KM out and the trenches that he was supposed to help clear a mere 200m ahead of him. Although he couldn’t see the shells flying in his direction, he knew they were there. Finally gaining control of the chopper, he wiggled the bird, allowing his gunners to give the infantry in the trenches two long burst, as well as avoiding incoming AA fire. He called in the position of the SPAA gun and was pleased to see it explode a few second later, the victim of an excellent Abram gunner. Focusing, he fired his rockets and 30mm chain gun at the infantry in the trench, hoping that they would be too busy ducking to fire back with small arms. He heard a gunner call in fire from 11 o’clock, but couldn’t see anything yet. The next few minutes, if they lasted that long, would be interesting.

C. Shockley of CTEN AEB was at the lowest of lows, literally, he was in the bottom of the PIT. Leading the advance he was moving his engineer Abram as carefully as he could across the desert, looking for mines. He was so focused on his task that when it was sounded that they had found a patch of mines, he let out a breath of relieve. Not something associated with finding a mindfield. He called it in and soon his CO, Lt. Mathis was to his left. The trouble started when the engineers began moving up. When the first platoon unloaded behind him, his radio came to life with fire reports. It looks like the enemy infantry had been found, but not seen yet. While he and his men began the task of removing the mines, he heard shots to his rear as the Abrams of 1st Lt. Pucket opened up on tarkets located to the NW. Down in the depression, Shockley couldn’t see anything. He and his crew just focused on the task at hand, clearing the mine field for the invasion.

(The details of the battle are attached in a word document. More on deployment, planning and everything that happened not mentioned in the dramatization).

Turn’s Story
1st Lt. Burr’s ears were still ringing. He and C. Lindsey were moving out to make sure that the path was clear for the infantry coming behind when his tank had rounded the spar of a hill and the mother of all “CLANG”s hit the tank. They had lost two machine guns, but the otherwise everyone was fine. They beat a hasty retreat back behind the hill and he had radioed 2nd Lt. McGraw of CTRA SCA to have a look at the area where the shot come from. McGraw and his partner where preparing to go over the hill soon to take a look, but until then. Burr’s ears still hurt. As near as they could make out, it was a heavy AFV that had hit them, but with everything ringing and slightly disoriented, they didn’t get the guy’s license plate.

What needs to be done

SFlank needs move and suppress tribal (or visa versa) and prepar to join Breach via ravine.

Breach needs to contine artillery on slopes west and nw of engineers. Also, move up additional eng assests. (ESVS)

CTRA SCA position to view possible t-62s. at ~(67,160)

(Another note, the reason I take the kinds of notes I do is because i never know when I'm going to get back to this game. It's the only way I can pick it up after days of work and make sure I'm not missing something. Although that's prone to happen as well. Yes there is the replay button, but I need reminders as to what happened, why and how I'm going to proceed.)

Turn’s Story

Lt. Burr watched as the Strykers moved past his position. His ears were still ringing from the shell they had taken. With the concussion damage to the loader and the state of the crew, reaction time was done, so he held their fire, forcing himself to delegate to Lindsey. The Strykers were carrying the infantry into the safety of the ravine located to the south of the PIT. The problem was that the ravine wasn’t as safe as they first thought. The first men to unload (so the APC could come back for the others) came under fire from more small arms. Lindsey successfully spotted the offending troops a mere 100m from Burr’s tank. The second APC into the ravine poped smoke to cover the men unloading. The third platoon took fire from a MMG pit to the west. Lindsey opened up on it, but was unable to destroy it. Burr called in smoke and Heavy artillery on it’s position and Lt. McGee of AOPB obliged, calling back the confirmation. At about that time Burr received a call from Corporal Willis is CTRA BDC saying that the MMG pit was neutralized. Glancing over at the smoking pit, Burr listened as Willis reported, “The first missile detonated near by, but the second tow took it out.” Burr replied, “Corporal, it’s not good to shoot at crows with a cannon, but this time, I think I’ll let it go.” “Thank you, Sir,” Willis responded, “In such cases I believe in Rule 37 ‘There is no overkill. Only ‘Open fire!’ and ‘Time to reload!’” Burr smiled and called McGree back to cancel the heavy guns.

Still plugging away at this.

Turn’s Story
2nd. Lt. McGee of AOPB heard the radio buzz again and again. It appears that someone was taking pretty serious pot shots at the Attack birds. After listening for a moment and scanning the horizon west of him, he got on the horn himself. “Major Fox”, he said “I’ve got eyes on the MANPADs. They are entrenched West North West of my position about 1.5 klicks.” The reply came back. “Confirmed 2nd Lt.. Forcast calls for light to heavy showers. Arrange it would you.” McGee targeted the troops with a weapon that he didn’t have and make the appropriate calculations. Next he called 2nd Lt. Coolidge of CTMS MRA 120, 1st. Lt. Miller of AOMB A 105(3), and 1st. Lt. Philllips of Divisions 81mm Mortar and told them where to target. He then asked S. Bell of Disions 120mm Mortar and told him to adjust a little SW of his current plotting. Then he put radioed 2nd Lt. Fowler of AOMB B 105(3) and asked for a smoke screen to be put right on top of those shoulder launchers. He radioed Major Fox again. “Light to heavy showers arranged and expected.” He then gave him the ETA of Steel Rain. “Good work, Lt.” Fox replied. McGree sat back with satisfaction. Almost exactly 1.5 Klicks north of him, Fox’s driver stopped the Abram on the east side of the pit. Fox could see the smoke from the Strela launchers in the distance. He intended to watch this show personally. Before and beneath him, almost a full two companies of troops and equipment prepared to charge right into the face of the enemy. The mine belt had been breached and 1st Lt. Mathis prepared to lead the charge into the first of the enemy’s camps. They would charge after the first storm front of Steel rain fell. It seamed almost quiet with anticipation. Fox sighted his weapons and ordered all men on full alert.

Back to the fray!

Turns Story
Corporal Shockley or CTEN AEB watched as men and AFVs swarmed around his position. He was right at the edge of the PIT looking across the desert towards ALPHA, the first cluster of suspected arms caches. His IR let him see though the smoke that was billowing. He could see the MANPADs, unable to get a lock on the two birds hovering 50m behind him because they were too close. He could see the RPG team that had supprised one of the MECH squad franticly scrabbling, not sure whether to go or stay and fight. The LMG team that had taken out Platoon BA’s sniper and chopped the MMG team back was due east of him on the hill. He heard the chatter as McGee of AOPB replotted the steel rain that would advance with them. The noise of gunfire was load despite the thick armor. This was it! He was in the middle of driving wedge that would split this Afghan dessert fortress and he was proud to be there. He heard Lt. Burr of CTEO AEA call out that the Southern Flank engineers were evacuated to the south side of the PIT. There was still a platoon of Bradleys from CTRA there to support Burr’s damanged tank and CTEO AEB. They had eyes on the Clanker that Rattled Burr’s ride. Shockley smiled as he remember taking the shot that impacted on the Afghan tanker. It didn’t take it out, but the crew had to be as rattled at Burr’s was. Peering out of the scope, Shockley kept his eyes peeled and his ear open to any command from Fox and told his driver to move forward.

Played two turns since I last posted.

1st Lt. Walker of MCPD MRA was more than a little uptight. It began when the artillery barrage dumped on them blew one of the tracks off their ride. S. Kingsley of MCPD TA was not happy either. He and his gunner were trying to ascertain the damage. All the while Walker could hear the sounds of battle around him: the Abrams of CTAK firing in support of the troops on the other side of the PIT, the radio buzzed with constant commands from Major Fox, whose tank was parked a mere 200m NE of them, and the swearing of the men as they tried to come to terms with their damaged ride. Just then Kingsley shouted back, “I’ve got a S. Perez of one of Divisional MECH ENG platoons here. Says that he’d be happy to give you a ride. He’s been playing ferry this whole time and would love to take combat troops.” Walked didn’t need to think twice. “Alright squad, let’s move!” They bailed out under fire from Afghan units to the NW. His men kept to cover and moved fast, making poor targets for the enemy. He heard small arms fire and saw a couple of misses with what could have been medium caliber AGLs, but didn’t stop to see. His men dove into the back of the M1126 Styker even as they heard rounds bouncing off of the armor. There wasn’t as much room in here as in their M113A3 Slat, but as Perez gunned the engine and they moved out, Walker could tell this think could move. He used the radio in the Stryker to tell the rest of his platoon to follow Perez into the PIT. As they left they could hear Kingsley’s gunner open up on the units that were firing on them. The enemy was so well dug in, Walker doubted it would do anything, but hey, Kingsley’s man might get lucky. As they descended into the PIT with the rest of the Platoon close behind them, Walker thought about what awaited them when they would stop.

1st Lt. Perez of BHAH A looked over the smoke covered battleground. They had made significant progress in the last few minutes. The divisional MECH troops had moved through the softened Afghan troops with little difficulty. While new troops would pop out of the smoke, they were dealt with in good order from CTAL and CTAK units, as well as Perez and Damato in their Blackhawk attack choppers. Even McGraw and Turner in the Apaches were able to make good use of their 30mms. The only danger at this point was enemy artillery. Those ground troops better keep moving or they were going to get hit. Perez heard his co-pilot inform him that units of MC were moving up to begin the final push. He rechecked his ammo loads and prepared to support anybody that needed it.
