JEDCJT Posted September 25, 2011 Report Share Posted September 25, 2011 OOC: Talked to Shadow about it, he agreed. This will be a closed thread between the two of us. Shadow would like to do some RP in this. IC: [b]PRIVATE[/b] [i]The Pentagono building, outskirts of Nadrink[/i] Supreme Executor Julius Thrawn remained silent as he surveyed the large flat screen in front of him. Noverian Defense Forces personnel were working at their posts. "What is the plan, sir?" Thrawn didn't reply at Executor Pallaeon's inquiry for several moments, his red eyes scanning over the screen, the machinery whirring silently inside his mind. He then raised a finger and pointed it at the screen. "What do you see?" Pallaeon raised an eyebrow as he looked at the screen. On it was a very detailed map of Southern California and Baja California, both of which were currently a part of the Holy American Empire. "I see southern California and Baja. Why--" "That's the plan." Pallaeon blinked several times before realization dawned upon him at last. "So you're going to--" "Yes." Thrawn's concise reply cut off Pallaeon's reply and confirmed his unspoken question. Turning to his friend, Thrawn's red eyes seemed to bore through him as he spoke next, "Undertake appropriate preparations for this operation. All precautionary measures are to be implemented, immediately. [b]Operation INITIATIVE[/b] is launched. Relay this to the Directorate of Defense." Pallaeon nodded. "Yes sir." === The orders were passed down the Noverian High Command to three branches of the Noverian Defense Forces. The 20th through 22nd Divisions were dispatched from mainland Noveria to reinforce the vast Midwest Protectorate. At the same time, the 30th, 32nd, and 35th Divisions, along with two hundred Juggernaut II Main Battle tanks and one hundred Titan tanks, were sent into the Autonomous Regions of California, Nevada, and Arizona from mainland Noveria and the Midwest Protectorate. They were to be sent into Holy American California (comprising of Southern California and Baja California). The 51st, 52nd and 53rd Divisions were to serve as supporting units that could be called in just in case. A total of 30,000 troops from the 30th, 32nd, and 35th Divisions would be deployed for Operation INITIATIVE, to be organized into the Noverian Peacekeeping Force (NPF). The 30th would enter southern California from Arizona, utilizing Routes 8, 10, and 40 as nodes of entry. They were to secure the cities of San Bernardino, Riverside, and El Cajon as a precursor to the securing of Los Angeles and San Diego. In turn, the 32nd and 35th were to enter from central California and southern Nevada, utilizing Fresno and Las Vegas as jumping points. From Fresno, the troops were to use Route 5 to travel to Bakersfield, and on to Los Angeles, Palmdale, and Riverside. From Las Vegas, the troops were to go through Route 15 and link up with the 30th in attaining their objectives to secure San Bernardino. In case the 30th Division encountered resistance - which was not expected, but it was still better to be prepared - the 53rd Division would be called in for support. The same went for the 51st and 52nd Divisions for the 32nd and 35th Divisions. But for now, they would remain at their initial positions for now. The 51st Division was to be airdropped into San Diego and Los Angeles, as well as Tijuana and the rest of Baja California, with the interests of securing strategic locations. To provide aerial support, the 25th Assault Squadron and 41st Assault Squadron, accompanied by AWACs and EWACs, were to escort the C-130 transports and to shadow the land troops. UAVs were to be employed for reconnissance purposes, to provide the troops with situational awareness. The 30th Assault Squadron was to be placed into supporting roles, to be called in at a moment's notice if necessary. A CSG was dispatched from Drogheda (San Francisco) toward Los Angeles, San Diego, and Tijuana. Submarines, for particularly, would be positioned off the coasts of Los Angeles, San Diego, and Tijuana. A total of 60,000 troops (counting the 30,000 troops from the 51st through 53rd Divisions) were to be involved. Operation INITIATIVE was set to begin. === [b]CLASSIFIED/VISIBLE THROUGH SATELLITES[/b] Upon receiving orders from their commanders, the 30th, 32nd, and 35th Divisions went into action. They had orders not to fire unless fired upon, and to provide humanitarian assistance to the population of cities they encountered. The seeming implosion of the Holy American Empire, mired in civil war, had necessiated that the Corporate Republic undertake the necessary measures to ensure the security and stability of the HAE's Californian regions. As according to plan, the 30th Division rumbled across the border, entering Holy American California from three points: Yuma (Route 8), Blythe (Route 10), and Needles (Route 40). Through Route 40, the troops were to secure the town of Barstow; through Route 10, they were to take over Palm Springs, with the objective being San Bernardino. Through Route 8, the 30th Division was to secure Mexicali and El Centro, with the objective being El Cajon and San Diego. At the same time, 35th Division would enter through the border town of Roach and head through Route 15, where it was to link up with the 30th Division at Barstow. Further north, the 32nd Division would enter from three points: Delano and Lost Hills (Route 5), and Inyokern (Route 14 and 395). The troops would utilize Route 5 to get to the objective of Bakersfield, Route 395 to secure Johannesberg and Route 14 to secure Mojave. Once Bakersfield was occupied, the troops was to continue on to Santa Clarita; once Johannesberg and Mojave were occupied, the troops were to continue on to Hesperia and link up with the 30th and 32nd at San Bernardino. This was the plan. Up in the air, fighters and interceptors of the 25th Assault Squadron and 41st Assault Squadron, along with AWACs and EWACs, lifted up into the air, where they would enter HAE airspace, with the intent of providing protective cover. As with the troops on the ground, the pilots received orders not to fire unless fired upon. C-130 transport aircrafts carrying paratroopers of the 51st Division flew ahead, under fighter protection, toward San Diego, Los Angeles, and Tijuana. The paratroopers had their orders as well: they were to secure the Californian Channel Islands (San Catalina, Santa Barbara, Santa Cruz, San Miguel, Santa Rosa, San Nicolas, and San Clemente). The same went for strategic locations near and inside San Diego, Los Angeles, and Tijuana. Operation INITIATIVE was well-underway. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
