ARVN and US overall operation.
Saigon is on the verge of collapsing. If the CIA have any chance of getting the US military to ‘get their hands dirty’ they need to find proof and evidence that the North has mobilized and is a serious threat to US interests in South Vietnam. At this time the CIA have claimed the PAVN has mobilized from 176000 troops to over 300000 and are being equipped by soviet and Chinese weapons dealers. They have not provided any evidence at this time.
Black Ops – Leave no man behind.
To find and destroy 5 rebel camps, gather intel and any evidence they find and get it to an extraction point.
Possible via air or riverboat.
Its believed the camps are being used to train and equip a new kind of soldier in the form of a massive civilian army. Highly trained, organized and can blend into the rest of the population. More evidence of this also needs to be found.
ARVN are in direct control by their Commanding Officer (Co)
US Green Beret are in support and will be operating as a single unit under the Co. Both Co have a job to do.
Both this units are tasked with the preporations and ecacutions of these ‘training camps’ Any Intel found MUST be handed over to the CIA Recon team.
CIA Recon. A small team of Recon specialists have been deployed to observe and get photographic evidence and gather intel packages to send back to CIA HQ.
The Australian SAS have been in-country for years now observing and gathering most of the intelligence the CIA have presented. They are looking for high value targets ‘HVT’ to kill. They are also looking for evidence of Tunnel systems they believe are being dug out and used to move troops.
PAVN and VC trainees
PAVN command have been tasked with recruiting, training and deploying 200000 new troops by the end of 1964. At this time theuy have of 1000 training camps dotted all over the country and in neighboring Loas and Cambodia.
Hanoi is now looking for a swift end to the conflict and the removal of foreign military interests throughput Vietnam.
After a conflict in the Tonkin Gulf proved a US involvement was now clearly established and they were operating across the demarcation line, the order to ramp up has been a welcome one.
PAVN will be operation as a large single unit and have a make shift ‘camp’ that MUST be set up for 30 minutes at a time before it can be moved. Whilst its set up it may come under contact from ARVN. At this time there is NO proof that the US are involved in the operation.
When the 30 minutes is up they must move the camp and re-establish it. They cannot ever return to the same camp place twice, so must be cleaver and precise in their planning. Every time a camp is completed and it finishes its 30 minutes, another 300 soldiers have completed their training.
The PAVN will be given three matching camp setups, but only one of them will be the actual camp set up. The other two will be decoys. This should improve the chances of getting re-established.
There will be more a more in depth mission brief on the day for each side and additional objectives if needed.
Sunday will be written depending on the outcome of the Saturday.
We need to get started promptly Saturday at 10am, as we MUST be finished no later than 4pm. Then its tools down and social.
Sunday will start at 10am and finished no later than 1pm.
