D.O.W. 4-7 CAV Phase III of Campaign by Cougar11
 
This will be a two part mission with a save in progress.

This scenario is a simulation and does not have any political message.



Mission Summary :
From HVOC 6: Ok Troop! Alpha troop was reduced quit a bit in the two phases they engaged in. A Greek infantry battalion minus has moved in to the town of St. Joseph to deter the enemy from moving on the town will additional forces could arrive. During the last phase of the enemy attack, they moved in a infantry battalion and a mechanized armor company to the south. They have taken the town and university of Thessonalinki. There are three bridges, a railway station, the airport, and the town and university under their control. Bravo troop with additional mechanized infantry platoons is tasked with moving south clearing out the infantry in the city, securing the airport and railway station, the three bridge locations with blocking positions, and setting up a screen line to the east north east. Bravo troop will move south clearing the university, and then the city proper. I suggest the mechanized forces take on the task of clearing the infantry, and the use of our armor to move in and deal with any armor threats that the IFV’s need help with. This will be a slow and methodical operation, and you can expect losses to infantry and IFV’s. Maintain as much of your forces as possible. If we are not able to clear and hold the southern flank, we will not be able to get the needed supplies from the logistical locations, and the enemy is sure to act on it and attack.

Colebrook has taken on CO again for this mission. Thank you again Colebrook.  ;D

Be ready depending on the CO mission design for a slow methodical clearing operation. This will take time, and with a save in progress for the second half of it, all forces are going to be needed to get to the end of the second part. ???

It has been tested with 5 players and there was no performance issues, but there are a lot of units including infantry on the maps. If you have a slow computer, graphics card, or connection there could be problems with it. Just an FYI.  :'(

I look forward to a different style mission, a successful outcome, and lots of intense fun for all.  8)

All that fine Greek infantry

Too bad we cannot use them to assault the area FIRST, lots of firepower and maneuverability just sitting around drinking tea and eating NATO biscuits.  Cavalry units don't do well in urban areas. 

The good news is that we are finally operating at night, taking advantage of our superior night vision optics.  If there are no civilians in the area...DEATH FROM ARTILLERY!!!

Two hour time limit eh?  Gonna be tough :P

At least we are using a full strength troop instead the shredded remains of A Troop :)

Night? Will this be night time mission?  ???

Other than that I will be looking for this mission with excitement!  Sounds all so great so far. :)

I do hope for my net to be good and for my pc to handle this much of...  units and large map.

The mission in game start time is 1600 UTC -5. For the map and the time frame, it will get start to get dark about 1730 or so, and be black by 1800-1830.

To clarify that the in game start time is 1600 UTC -5, not real life start time. Game server will be up at 2000 GMT.

I am looking forward to this for multiple reasons.
1. The stress and frustration of the individual and higher level unit commanders.
2. To see how well be work on the radio, through the command structure, and together.
3. To see the chaos that will ensue as we move hahahaaha  8)
4. That it has twists and turns, and gives something different from the normal.
5. To see how well SB holds up with the number of units.
6. To see how disciplined people are with their units.
7. Who survives and dies.
8. And just for the fun of it.  ;D

Better at night

American technology allows us to move and fire better over MOST other armies.  Even though SB refuses to implement the M2A3 Bradley, the rest will enjoy superior night vision equipment. 

Now, allow me to fill out the proper request forms for Storms.  The AT-4s should be handed off to training units  8)

I am sorry Red all units were suppose to have STORMS, but I must have added your unit after doing that, which means you were not the only unit with them. I try to make everything perfect, but sometimes one or two things slips through, or maybe with the complexities of making a mission somethings are just missed.

The second part of phase III is postponed one week. I have to work two 12 hour shifts this coming weekend, and cannot make it for any of the missions this weekend.  :'( I am making a replacement mission for both Saturday and Sunday.  ;D I will post them soon, and post for next weeks mission of phase III. Phase IV will be two or three weeks after that due to the change in my schedule.  :'(

Aww. 

Well I'm happy that we may still have some knowledge of coming missions before hand. That is more than welcome. Anyways. :)
