Strathyclyde Annual Wargames

Recommended Posts

OOC: this is betweemn My Forces, and The Opposing forces, combined with Rekamgil's Armed Forces.





the 1st Corp of 50,000 Has Mobilised for wargames excersise, and has equiipped themselves and 1,000 Tanks and 200 Artillery pieces with MOUT Laser Training systems. We have also equipped 10 Destroyers and 2 Cruisers with a similar Systems. The Wargames will start 1 day after Rekamgil forces arrive and are outfitted for training. The goal is to simulate the capture of the opposing teams Capital.

In readiness for tomorrow's exercise in Upper Stratyclyde, RPS Able, RPS Amity, RPS Nuralol, and RPS Tseanap are nearing US waters. We have also dispatched 1 Brigade to take part in this training exercise. 1 Brigade contains 3 Rekamgillian Infantry Regiments. These troops bring with them 20 APCs. We have also dispatched the newly constituted Rekamgil Special Service (RSS). This unit will train closely with the world-renowned US ONI squad. In fact, the RSS was created because of the US offer to provide special ops training, so these troops will be very green on the ground we are afraid. We know that the legendary US patience will shine through while they help to train our eager young men and women. The total number of troops deployed to the US amounts to 6000.

The Strathyclyde military has been set up, and is waiting on the RSS Units to be transferred to our compound to begin Training. the rest of the Rekamgil military should link up in the Southern half iof the Training Battlefield, with the OpFor Army, or the Opposing Forces, Consisting of 45,000 Conscript like troopers, and old style Soviet-Era weapons.



The Strathyclyde milityary has set up a simulated blockade type maneveur to keep enemy ships away from Strathyclyde ports, should the enemy attempt to sieze them.

RSS units have arrived in Upper Strathyclyde and have moved to their RV point with US ONI forces.


The DOR navy lies off shore ready to take part in any naval exercises (maneuvers, blockade running, assault landings, offshore bombardement) that the US navy sees fit. DOR naval command transferred to the US Navy. Admiral Renmerb has met with his US counterpart and is ready for instructions.

OOC: I am going to set us up. I am going to say that your army is carrying out the orders given it by your command. You can post what they are, as we are now starting. My forces are 50,000 Experienced Regulars and about 100 ONI Elite Spec Ops. You RSS Will participate with them, and will gain experience on our SpecOps runs. You may control 45,000 OpFor. They are all Simultated Conscripts, and not trained, but I am sure you can make use of them, combined with your own forces. You have Soviet Ers weapons, along with your own equipment. Good Luck, and have fun smile.gif

US Army on Patrol




US Army Units, 10,000 Strong Cross the border, Supported by two Left and Right flanks of 15,000 Each. Each Prong has 130 Tanks, 50 Artillery Pieces and 15 Operation Attack Helos and is attached with 10 Ground Attack, and 10 Air Combat Fighters, of Sea Sparrow and AMI 90 Class. 10,000 regulars guard Rear Positions, while the ONI Special Forces disrupt Communications as best they can, while the Element of Suprise is maintained. Though it won't be long before the Enemy realises its under siege. The Rekamgil forces have already positioned themselves according to thier Commanders plan. OpFor Units have been transferred to Rekamgil command as well.


US Ships hold off the coast, as the Rekamgil Navy just reachess the other side of the engagement border. Us Air Unites Begin Patrols, and Close Air Support. So far, no engagements, save for the 1 Relay Station destroyed by the ONI Spec Teams. the Enemy has not been reached yet. But by noon, the fighting should begin, as our units reach the front lines.

OOC: gotta warn ya: I'm very green with RPing (especially war RPs), so hopefully I'm able to do things correctly, but I think I understand... basically micromanagment of forces etc. In fact this is a perfect scenario because both my "forces" are green as am I... so it's an exercise for them AND me. P.S. do moderators "referee" our efforts?




The DOR navy holds off the engagement border, tracking the enemy navy on its sonar, several large contacts have been made. Around a small cape, out of visual contact, the ships form up in line-ahead formation. Admiral Renmerb, knowing they are being tracked, orders "full-ahead". Out of the distant morning haze, the four Reka ships steam head-long towards the US blockade, single-file. Amd. Renmerb (aboard the REKA flagship RPS Able) begins electronic countermeasures, hoping to mask their approach and confuse the enemy's targetting systems. These vessels hope to approach the enemy fast (given that the vulk of the force has speed on its side), array themselves, broadside, against the enemy bockade, punch a hole through, move into the protected harbour, and lie offshore, prepatory to coastal bombardment of enemy command and control faclities and other targets of opportunity. All hands are at battle stations and the "Crossbow" anti-ship missiles are ready to be fired.


Overnight, OpFor command toured the frontline positions in his APC, tweaked his defensive positions, and set pre-arranged artillery targets (i.e. areas that seem likely to be attacked have been pre-registered by OpFor artillery). These areas are, especially, points directly in front of both the extreme right and left forward positions. Two roads leading, ominously, straight into enemy territory and straight back into Reka territory, have been blocked off. One squadron of tanks (10 tks per sqd; T-34s) sit near each of the roads in hull-down positions, adequately camouflaged defending these obvious choke points. These positions are also covered by 88mm anti-tank guns. Each squadron commander has standing orders to be ready to move at a moment's notice because these roads (being obvious targets) might be bypassed by the enemy. Most of the rest of the armour is held back from the front, about 1 KM as a counterattcking mobile reserve. Knowing his army is on the defensive, the Reka commander wants to keep flexibility of movement on his side, thus, he holds most of his firpower back of the lightly held frontline, ready to strike HARD whereever the enemy's forces present themselves in strength. The Reka commander has split this moble reserve into four groups arrayed behind and across the front. Each of these 4 counterattack forces contain 9,000 troops. Forward troops (mainly reconnaisance units) will report relative strengths as they come into contact with the enemy. At that time, the Reka commander will concentrate forces as necessary. 8,000 Infantrymen therefore hold the "lightly-held" frontline (the direct frontline defensive depth is approx. 800 metres deep). Behind these 8,000 are the 4 counterattack groups totalling 37,000 troops. The commander had contemplated setting up fixed positions, in hopes of encouraging the US forces to "funnel" into pre-arranged killzones, but decided, instead, for this kind of flexible defence-in-depth (owing to US technological superiority). As long as these relatively green troops follwo orders and move when and where they are told, they should be able to hold up any determined attempt to pierce the line. Attack zones that cannot be covered by fixed machine guns (MMGs) have been mined wth both anti-tank and anti-personnel (OOC: assuming anti-personnel mines are not banned).


First reports mentioned the destruction of a relay station, but this action was not accompanied by a massive bombardement, the commander thus believes that only a small force effected this particular attack (either special forces or a small forward recce party). In any event, 2 companies of infantry have been dispatched to investigate the relay station attack.


Suddenly, on the left flank, tracked vehicles can be heard (and felt) beind a wall of trees across the front.

OOC: So hopefully this is the right idea!?

OOC: Nicely done! smile.gif







Instead of driving home their pressing advantage, the US Forces call in a massive airsoty containing the 30 Air Ground and 30 Air Combat Fighters and begin to pound the Frontlines, with a "shock and Awe" esque style attack. The Troops hunker Down until the air campaign ends. During this time, The Navy is to meet the Enemy ships incoming, closing the gap and using ECCM Systems to confuse thier enemies as well, making it difficult foreither side, unless at close range, to target the enemy.


Special Forces Teams continue to destroy yet another Relay Station, and then are pulling back, and waiting for the AMI 21b Rocket Artillery to hit the two companies reportedly sent to investigate. The two units were picked up on the field by an AMI 90 recon Flight, and several UAV's have been tracking them. Attack Helicopters have been dispatched as well. Tanks move forward to link up with the Troops and Artillery Poistions take up dug in spots and continue to fire as the Air Campaign begins.



OOC: This is happening along the frontline, as my forces have been deployed evenly, and they attacked at the same time. I'll let you Role Play your losses.

Naval Operations:


Enemy countermeasures have scrambled sonar contacts; Adm. Renmerb is forced to make visual contacts, which he does from his bridge onboard RPS Able. Quickly they approach the enemy blockade and the three ships in the back of the line swing out and face the enemy at close-range (all four ships are Reka ships: Cruisers RPS Nuralol and RPS Tseanap and Destroyers RPS Able and RPS Amity). Renmerb orders all ships to concentrate fire on one particular enemy cruiser holding a part of the blockade. Renmerb hopes to sink or cripple this vessel suffiently and quickly enough to allow his small strike force to pass through the bloackade and fire "down the line" through the enemy ships. If this break through is effected, his ships will steam full-ahead to the sheltered harbour objective beyond. All ships open fire simultaeuosly on the enemy cruiser, whilst the enemy's other ships begin to return fire. Enemy countermeasures block Reka targetting systems and so tactical officers are forced to manually plot each solution. This they do furiously and methodically, but obviously this requires more time than would an unscrambled attack. This massive concentration of effort, Renmerb believes, is necessary given the relatively fast nature of his force, but considering, more importantly, his inferiorty of numbers. Simply put, he must strike hard and strike fast if he intends to break through and move to the enemy's rear... his force will not survive long in a slugging match with this enemy in possession of superior number and technology. Reprts begin coming in of direct missile hits on the enemy cruiser; meanwhile gun crews man the fore and aft 54 cal guns trying to suppress other nearby enemy ship whose return fire is quickly zeroing the Reka navy. The enemy cruiser MUST be sunk or crippled quickly or Renmerb will have no chioce but to withdraw.

USS Redoubt Simulated sunk!





The USS Redoubt, a main heavby Cruiser fell under heavy simulated attacks, and lit her deck fires to simulate a scuttle. The Enemy fleet is open to move through the lines, however 5 Ground/Sea Attack Helicopters with Exocet Anti Ship missles will surely stop the small force, and is en route. The Rest of the Fleet is continuing to harrow the enemy as best they can, whilst the war on land is a blitzkrieg in favor of Friendly forces, with massive losses on OpFor's side, thanks to the massive air campaign form both Aircraft and Helicopters. Still under this cover, the Troops and Tanks add to the Fray, and begin to Engage thenemy on all Fronts. The 10,000 Reserve are kept to Guard the Rear Areas, and to serve as reserve forces should they be needed. An extra 20 Tanks are called from the resves and sent to the Front Flank. Air and Artillery continues.

All across the front, an enemy aerial bombardement commences. Of course, frontline bombardement was expected and so the OpFor troops hunkered down in their prepared slit trenches and fox holes. The very wide frontage obliges US Air forces (only 30 planes devoted to direct ground support) to lay down only a very dispersed fire plan. However, the enemy's artillery fire is much more disruptive. Casualties are inflicted and the exercise umpires begin sending "KIA" and "Wounded" OpFor troops off the field. But these numbers are relatively small given that these troops had prepared cover positions in advance. Once the presence of enemy artillery positions began to be reported, the Reka commander ordered Reka artillery all across the front to open a furious counterbarrage meant to suppress enemy artillery crews manning their guns and to hopefully inflict "splash" damage to any enemy troops or tanks in their forward rally areas. So far, the Reka commander's plan was working well; his main attack force - held 1KM behind the line currently under attack - was essentially unaffected and still awaited order to move forward. Such a move will be ordered once an enemy concentration (or two or three or four concentrations, given that the commander has organized his counter attack force in four groups) is positively identified. Of the 8,000 troops manning the frontline, 1,200 become casualties. 2,000 move rearward to find better defensive positions once their own positions become overwhelmed with enemy firepower. These troops also report enemy locations and, importantly, artillery locations. This leaves 4,800 manning the immediate frontline, and 2,000 in an intermediate (but not entirely prepared) defensive position.


Ground-to-Air SAM missiles begin attempting to target enemy aircraft, but these SAM sites were among the first attacked by enemy planes... SAM efforts make a dent in enemy air forces, but cannot deal with the bulk of those planes.


The Reka commander decides that no clear concentration of enemy effort has yet presented itself and, so, displaying impressive patience, orders his main counterattack force to hold their positions. For their part, battalion and company commanders in the main force tour the troops (who are anxious to get into the fight) and remind them of their duty to WAIT for orders to move... "The General is still assessing the enemy's plan of attack; we WILL wait for his order". Some troops are on edge, knowing their comrades at the front are under attack, but they are reminded, "THAT is their JOB! They are to absorb the initial attack and report the enemy positions. If we attack now, before those positions have been accurately ascertained, we will be wasting their efforts! Let your comrades do their job upfront. We WILL hold until we know exactly where we must attack"


The two companies sent across to investigate the relay station incident approached the area cautiously. A Company on the right, however, got a little jumpy and moved forward without the benefit of cover. This company was detected by what appeared to be an AMI 90 recon flight, immediately thereafter, a rocket attack began falling amongst these troops, who (being inexperienced) broke and scattered towards the rear, having lost all officers and most NCOs in the rocket attack. Elements of B company (the other company sent to investigate) broke formation and attempted to halt A company's withdrawal. Unfortunately this gave B company's position away to the AMI 90 which was making a second pass before its own withdrawal. Enemy attack helicopters then appeared to begin attacking the position. B company could not believe its bad luck, having been caught in the open like this. The B Company commander ordered that his troops (now amalgamated with the remainder of A company) moved to the treed area and take cover...: "GET OUT OF SIGHT, GET DOWN!" he yelled. The commander called up his radio operator and intended to report that a quite strong attack appeared likely here... As he dialed in, the radio operator, along with the radio, was put out of commission by a helicopter strike. With few options left, the commander dispatched two runners back to battalion HQ to report the situation on this part of the front (each was to take a different route in case one was killed). He then order B company to hold the position at all costs. These troops, now relatively safely ensconced in the trees, waited for the enemy's attack. Would this be the spot for a major attack?


Twenty-five minutes later, at Battalion HQ, a runner from B coy appeared. "What the hell is going on out there?"


"Sir, A coy has been dispersed; helicopters have attacked the position; and we are virtually helpless" He gathered himself, "B Coy commander has ordered that B coy hold the position in the trees. B Coy commander is unsure if this is the point of main attack because no enemy infantry or armour showed itself. Nevertheless, B Coy commander suggests sending at lest one of the four counterattack forces to this part of the front." The Battalion Commander listened carefully, and then reported the situation to the overall Reka commander.


The Reka commander, not entirely sure if a main attack was coming in this area and not wanteing to committ to an area that might only be a feint attack, hesitated momentarily. Then he picked up the phone and called the battalion HQ... "Order the right counter attack force, Rayleigh Infantry Regiment with 5th Armoured Battalion in support, over to B company area. Stop all attempts at breakthrough."


So, finally, the Reka commander had ordered one of his four counterattack forces to move up to the Relay station area. He hopes, if this isn't the main attack, that he himself can punch through in this area... assuming his force can halt the enemy all across the front.


total casualties:

1,200 - frontline

500 - rear areas

A Company - 90 (out of 100)

B Company - 30 (Out of 100)


OOC: whew!

US Forces continue the Artillery barrage, amidst the counter battery fire. A Futher 10 Planes were sent in to hunt down and find the enemy's artillery. With the Anti Air practically gone, the Air Superiority was handed to US Forces, and they began to hit not only B Company, but also to attack the re enforcements from the right flank, that it was recieving, attempting to bog them down. AMI 9i0 flights step up, and a further 30 ONI Special forces move into enemy lines, though reports of 5 ONI Troops being ambushed and killed are unsubstantiated, and are being checked with the War Umpires. If this is true, this will be among the 150 Troops killed so far, with the rest taken out by simulated artillery strikes. A small 2,000 man force, equipped with 30 Tanks and 5 Support Artillery pieces probes the Left flank, hoping to draw out more of thenemy's re enforce ments, having gotten one of four to deploy. The US Commander realises he needs to force the Reka Commander to play all his cards downb, to see how the battle will play out.


The Naval battle is nearly over, after the Aircraft with Exocet missles have delivered thier payloads, and the US Naval contin gent begins to move into a position to bombard a small costal inlet, where a few depots of arms and weapons are stored.

RPS Nuralol under simulated attack


Having smashed and sunk the USS Redoubt, Adm. Renmerb had accomplished the first part of his plan. All four Reka ships steamed head-long into the breach thus created. Unfortunately, while attacking the Redoubt, all four ships had been under heavy fire. The destroyer RPS Amity sustained a direct hit in the fore-deck (25 sailors were "killed" while 40 were "wounded"). Immediately thereafter a second EXOCET missile blasted a hole in the port side. Umpires informed her captain that she had now taken on a severe list, and was required to cut speed by 1/4. Four US ships broke formation and began pursuing the cruiser RPS Nuralol (whose subsequent pursuit is pictured above). Her evasive action took her off course and US ships began pusuing her out to sea. Meanwhile, RPS Amity, having started to take on water, began listing heavily to port. Her captain, seeing that all hope was lost, radioed Adm. Renmerb to inform him that this ship was "lost". He was ordered to ensure the lives of as a many sailors as possible. RPS Amity signalled its surrender shortly thereafter, hoping the umpires would allow the safe "evacuation" of all remaining hands and invited the pursuing US ships to come alongside and take on surrendering sailors. This was allowed and the upires declared 75% hands safly evacuated... RPS Amity, however, did not fall into enemy hands. Umpires informed the US ships that her list was irreversible and that she had capsized and sunk. Those ships pursuing RPS Nuralol broke off the attack and returned to the battle zone. Nuralol remained safely at sea.


The two remaining Reka ships, although closing on their objective, were now hopelessly outgunned and subjected to heavy and concentrated fire. After RPS Able received a direct hit to her superstructure, umpires informed Renmerb that he and his bridge staff were out of action. The captain of RPS Tseanap was informed that he was now in command. Seeing no option, Tseanap's captain signalled the strike force's surrender to the US navy, whose overwheling firepower, and ability to pick off the Reka ships one by one, had won the day. RPS Nuralol signalled that she was steaming away from the combat area and was ruled to have survived and escaped.


Simulated Casualties:

RPS Able: 46 killed (inc. Adm. Renmerb), 78 wounded

RPS Amity: 78 killed, 102 wounded

RPS Nuralol: 22 killed, 31 wounded

RPS Tseanap: 9 killed, 28 wounded

ONI forces were discovered among the forward lines and were engaged heavily. This small force, although technically and tactically superior to the green OpFor troops, were badly outnumbered, raked with gunfire and artillery concentrations brought down on-call by artillery forward observation officers (FOOs). The small ONI force was therefore pinned down, however it also managed to engage and pindown a much larger OpFor force. Still the group pinned down (numbering around 200) was part of the forward troops, not the main counterattack force.


A medium sized attack developed on the enemy's left flank, supported by armour. This time, artillery concentration were brought down on the pre-registered locales, which had been set the night before by the Reka commander. An attack of this type played right into the Reka defensive system. Waiting 25 minutes to see if the artillery concentration would dissuade this attack, the Reka commander decided that the main effort was not coming from this flank. He did not commit any more of his counter attack force to this obvious ruse. The forward troops holding this area were order to hold the position, to NOT advance and to bring up the anti-tank 88mm guns. Any armour that could be targetting was fired upon; in the heat of it all, some 88s were turned on groups of soldiers who were, quite obviously, made casualties. This front appeared to be holding.


Unfortunately, the complete air superiority began to hamper command and control. But still, the amount of aircraft engaged was not enough to turn the tide of this battle.


Reports began coming in from the right flank, where B coy had been bogged down and sustained further casualties from air and artillery attacks. Still, however, the Rayleigh Infantry Regiment with 5th Armoured Battalion (the right counter attack force) began reporting that they too were being attacked by aircraft; but that the number of aircraft engaged was not overwhelming. Seeing that the enemy's left flank attack was being forestalled by the pre-arranged artillery, all remaining artillery was ordered to "stonk" the enemies rear areas and frontlines, in front of the beleaguered B company and the quickly advancing counterattack force, for a 25 minute period. Two of the three remaining counterattack forces were ordered into position on the right flank. All the while, these forces were being raked by enemy aircraft, which could now observe this massive movement of men and material to the right flank. Neverthless, casualties on the ground remained tolerable. Within 30 minutes, the forward units of all three counterattack forces had arrived at the start line, while the remainder of these units moved up behind. The artillery "stonk" continued aggressively and all OpFor forces on the right flank were ordered forward toward their own artillery barrage. The barrage lifted suddenly and the leading elements of this OpFor (tanks and infantry) poured into enemy lines. The artillery was now ordered to fire indiscriminantly into the enemy's rear areas hoping to slow the arrival of reinforcements.


The Reka commander hoped that he would be able to turn the US right flank, and this was it, this was his gamble. He had thrown 3/4 of his offensive force into the right... an area seemingly defended mainly by aircraft because only a few troops and less that a dozen tanks had been seen before this major armoured counterattack.


The commander sat at his HQ, waiting for reports to come in.


Casualties as the attack went in:

B Coy - ordered to retire completely by the umpires

A Coy - ditto

forward defensive troops: 800 out of 4200 at the front

intermediately located defensive troops: 300 out of 2000

1st counterattack force: 1200 (out of 9250) (200 of these from A&B coys)

2nd counterattack force: 100 (out of 9250)

3rd counterattack force: 100 (out of 9250)

4th counterattack force: 100 (out of 9250)


Total troops left engaged:

3,400 manning front lines

1,700 manning intermediate defence lines

26,350 Counterattack force committed to the right-side attack

9,150 Counterattack force held in readiness

Faltering, the Riught Flank nearly collapsed. The US Commander had not expected such a bold maneuver. He called for Aerial Naval Support and the 10 Attack Helicopters and 10 VTOL Sea Sparrows Joined the Fray, and he ordered that, plus another 20 form the Ground attack Air craft, currently engaged in attackinfg command relay spots, to hammer the advancing enemy.


The US force allowed themselves to be Pushed back, and instead of a straight horizontal line, it was now a partial 'T' formation. US Command orders that 200 Tanks, and 20 Artillery as well as 10,000 Troops, from the Reserves to for a reverse inverted Wedge, and to take Position and and connect with the right flank, and slowly advance, under the cover of 90% of the Air Force coverage all on the right flank, as well as a massive artillery barrage. TRhis was accomplished thanks to the new Sattelite systems recently installed.


The new formations are working well, and the allied forces now number at 25,000 Troops, over 400 Tanks, and 100 Artillery Pieces. Supported by over 25 Aircraft and 20 Attack Helicopters. ONI Special Forces have deployed to the Area as well, engaging the enemy with Special Anti Tank Javelin Missles.

Seeing that the time for games had passed, The US Command ordered a massive artillery assault and Air Campaign to hammer the enemy on the remaining two fronts, and ordered the Remaining two Flanks to press forward, seeing that most of the Attention is at the Right Flank. the enemy, over stretched and committed to one side, will lose one flank, and have the other surrounded, and will be consumed by the right, enabling the US Forces to route the enemy, securing a marginal, if not costly victory.

OOC: OUCH! laugh.gif


IC: Seeing that hope was fading, the Reka Commander realized he had finally been bested. He took heart in the fact that his entire force was green, and that they had entered the battle without any air power and with completely outdated weaponry. He had hoped to take US forces by surprise, turn their right flank and tear up the enemy's rear area. The US force's overwhelming technological and aerial superiority had won the day; along with, he was willing to admit, his own lack of experience and that of his troops.


After the umpires declared that all OpFor resistence was fading, and that local US commaders were extracting lower level surrenders, they declared a marginal US victory. The supreme Reka commader jumped in an APC and drove through the lines where his troops were emerging from their dugouts and positions to shake hands and to move forward to greet and congratulate their former "enemies". Smiles and handshakes, along with animated discussions recounting everyone's good time, coud be seen amongst and between all sides. The commander reached his US counterpart's HQ, disembarked and strode in to congratulate him on his victory. The commander's adjutant reported later that he heard the Reka officer comment "Boy, I'm glad you guys are on OUR side!"


Out came the champagne and all the troops were ordered to square away their equipment and prepare to move out to Stockholm for three days furlough before shipping back home.


All four Reka ships formed up and made a ceremonial entrance into Stockholm harbour, accompanied by several ships of the US navy.


Everyone seemed to agree, the first joint exercise between these two allies had been an excellent learning experience. These exercises were a resounding success!

Rekamgil forces are on US soil by the invitation of that most illustrious government. Although the DOR has no objection to Akiiryan military observers taking part, we must leave the final decision to the government of Upper Strathyclyde. We appreciate your government's interest in our exercises and look forward to further, and continually improving, relations with your nation.


Warm Regards,

Nayr Aquilini

Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs

Unfortunately, the wargames are over, however you may take our Training data and raw information, and you may take that to study, in hopes of better understanding of how each side fought. We4 hope this is satisfactory.





We welcome the contenders to our great capital of Stockholm, and have granted a free hotel room for each soldier, as well as free chips to our largest casino's, should thier officers clear it that they may gamble. We are glad to see improvement in your ranks, and we feel that in no time, that your military will be tip top.


RSS Units have increased in both performance and command. We have included schematics for new modular body armor and night vision to increase recce capabilities, as well as deep strike performance, as was seen in the beginning of the wargames with ONI.


Once again, very well thought out. Several tactics, including a well played shrewd tactic, went well with your forces being technologically inferior. You seem to have a very firm sense of Command. More so than us. We were simply lucky to have air and heavy artillery units. Technology is our strong suite. We hope you enjoyed this exercise, and we hope to invite more nations next year!

DOR Military HQ Statement:


This military wholeheartedly thanks US forces and, especially, the US commander and government for all their assistance. All of our soldiers also extend their thanks for the training and excellent hospitality shown by Upper Strathyclyde. Our engineers are particularly thankful for the schematics your government has forwarded to help equip our troops with body armour and night vision.


Thank you again, and we look forward to next year's exercises!
