A chance discovery by a unit operating in northern Chernarus uncovered an extensive logistics train leading south. Further investigation uncovered the signs of a major ChDkZ (Communist Insurgent) activity in the Black forest region. A mechanized CDF (Chernarussian Defense Force) unit was tasked to check the area; it ran into considerable trouble and was destroyed. Analysts have been scrambling for more information. Current beliefs is that the ChdkZ are amassing a unit of Russian produced T-72 MBTs (main battle tanks) in preperation for a major strike. The current location of the tanks are unknown, and to complicate matters a ZSU-23-4 SHILKA SPAAG (Self-propelled anti-aircraft weapon) has been spotted by a UAV before it was shot down.
At the behest of CDF high command. LIMA team, designated taskforce INFAMOUS, has been inserted into the region to find and neutralize the threat. Our only links is a halted convoy of fuel trucks, the remains of the ambushed CDF mechanized infantry squad, and our crashed UAV.
Find and seize the insurgent camp somewhere within the Black Forest. If the camp cannot be held, the tanks must be sabotaged. Track down and destroy a ZSU-23-4 SHILKA SPAAG. To prevent the tanks from becoming operational, a parked convoy of URAL-375D fuel trucks must captured and destroyed. HQ will take no chances in this operation; deploy all available weapons to prevent their escape.
1. Find and Seize an Insurgent camp.
2. Destroy enemy AA assets in the black forest.
3. Destroy the parked convoy of URAL fuel trucks.
The enemy is a hidden ChDkZ armoured group consisting of no less than three armored vehicles and guarded by infantry irregulars. One of the few SHILKA SPAAG's remaining to the insurgents has been spotted patrolling the Black Forest region. Its current location is unknown. The exact number of enemy forces is uncertain. Our own analysts claim that there can be no more than a platoon sized element, some forty soldiers, in the region. By contrast our CDF liaison has put forth estimates ranging from eighty to full company strength.
Though the enemy has a fair amount of armor at his disposal. SIGINT combined with a study of the ChDkZ traffic patterns has revealed an interesting fact. The tanks are unlikely to be fully operational. It is imperative that the camp is located before the tanks are loaded and mobile.
1. A mechanized CDF unit was caught in an ambush. As far as we know there were no survivors.
2. INTEL gathered in previous missions suggest that enemy reinforcements may come in from northern Chernarus.
> TERRAIN AND WEATHER
Its early morning right before dawn. Expect full daylight in 30 minutes. Local weather reports caution that the weather will be wet, cold, and with a cloudy overhang. How come we can never go anywhere nice?
> TROOPS AVAILABLE
A ten man strong strike team of specialist LIMA operatives have driven from the Three Valleys region to conduct the mission. Local CDF forces have been told to avoid the district, focusing solely on the protection of the major southern towns. Given the unknown quantity and threat of the enemies AA capabilities, HQ has decided not to make any air assets available.
A weapons crate and a pair of Landrovers provide additional equipment and mobility for this mission.
There are no pressing time limitations, save finding the enemy camp before the tanks are made operational. Given the poor expected weather, and lack of supplies, this can take as much as three to six hours for the insurgents.
> CIVILIAN CONSIDERATIONS
The Black Forest region is sparsely populated. This is a covert operation. Avoid Gorka and Guglovo to the north and south of the Area of Operations. There are no special civilian considerations.
HQ reminds us that the ROE does not permit us to engage unarmed personnel.
