BREAKING NEWS - At 14:45 Local Time, Rhodesian Security Forces have clashed with armed militias of the Rhodesian National Union - Popular Front (RNU-PF), an extreme left wing terrorist organization. Rhodesian Security Forces attacked enemy positions and caught them completely off guard after an Intelligence report warned the Government about an imminent full scale attack on Government personnel and infrastructures.
 
According to official military sources, two cruise missiles hit enemy fortified position, followed by an air strike carried out by the Rhodesian Airforce. 
 
After the airstrikes, at 14:49 the Rhodesian Army put terrorist forces into disarray breaking trought their lines, losing 1,300 men and 108 M41 tanks. Enemy losses are estimated around 1250. 
 
Few minutes later, the Rhodesian African Rifles Division forced the enemy to retreat near the northern border of the Luapula province, in the northern part of the country. After the second attack, over 950 Rhodesian soldiers were laying on the ground along with 78 tanks and 350 enemy militias.
 
State President Ian Smith declared the State of War and assumed full authoritative power over the nation. All reservists have been recalled into service and deployed on the frontline to hold positions and prevent enemy troops from crossing the Kalungwishi river, connecting Lake Mweru and Mweru Wantipa.
 
The battles occured in mostly inhabited areas of the country, and there are no reported civilian casualties. The battles were intense and many wonder if the Rhodesian Security forces will be able to resist a possible counter attack due to the high losses suffered during the first two waves. However, the industrial capacity of the country has been converted for military use.

"Terrorism Stops here! - Rhodesian Army"

RADIO RHODESIA-NYASALAND - Thousands of citizens rushed to the local Rhodesian Army recruitnment offices to enlist and fight against the marxist menace in the Northern province of Luapula. As many as 2000 Rhodesians of all ethnic and cultural background have bounded togheter under the Rhodesian flag to support the Federal Government's struggle against terrorism and all those who threaten the very existance of Rhodesia Nyasaland as a civilized and democratic nation.

State President Ian Smith addressed the people in a televised broadcast, announcing that new allowances will be granted to frontline soldiers who volunteer for scouting missions in the no man's land, where situation at least for now seems to be calm. No further clashes have been reported since the deadly battle occured earlier this afternoon, but the military Intelligence warns that "terrorists might launch a counter attack in the few hours.".

The morale of the troops is high after the recent victories, and footages of combat operations have been broadcasted on Rhodesian TV to encourage the population to support the troops and report any suspicious activity linked with the Rhodesian National Union - Popular Front.

RADIO RHODESIA-NYASALAND -
The Rhodesian Air Force and Missile Command carried out a series of successful air to ground attacks aimed at destroying the enemy's reinforcement and resupply capabilities. As many as 4 Cruise Missiles and 2 air strikes occured today, crippling the enemy's reaction capabilities one day after the bloody battle in the northern part of the Luapula Province.
 
State President Ian Smith said the Rhodesian Army is ready to blow a final strike to RNU-PF militias and put an end, once for all, to their terrorist activities in the northern part of the country. State President also commented on the new trade agreements signed by Rhodesia Nyasaland and its economic partners, stating that such trade agreements helped Rhodesia to sustain military operations, largely financed by the country's money reserve.

DISASTER IN RHODESIA-NYASALAND
15.000 DEAD IN ONE DAY. 2500 CIVILIANS DIED IN  ENEMY COUNTER ATTACK.
THOUSANDS OF REFUGEES MASSED AT THE CONGOLESE BORDER
 
BREAKING NEWS - State President Ian Smith declared the Martial Law after the intense clashes between the Rhodesian Security Forces and RNU-PF militias escalated to "Unprecedented levels" said the Commander in Chief of the Rhodesian Army Fieldmarshall Constantine Chiwenga "At least 9000 Rhodesian soldiers died in the counter attack, enemy casualties are estimated 6000." 
 
The Rhodesian Army failed to repel the counter attack, forcing loyalist troops to retreat to a new frontline where intense fights and enemy air raids are occuring as we speak. The Rhodesian Red Cross said "This is an humanitarian disaster of unprecedented levels". With total disregard for international humanitarian laws and the Geneve conventions, RNU-PF aircrafts and missile batteries hit several settlements behind Rhodesian lines, resulting in the death of at least 2500 civilians. Lootings and violence erupted in the major cities of Rhodesia Nyasaland, where security forces and law enforcements have failed to quell the riots. Local emergency services have been crippled aswell, and their limited resources have been depleted in an attempt to rescue the civilian population.
 
State President Ian Smith who is reported safe in the Presidential bunker, has issued a decree declaring mandatory conscription for all citizens able to carry a rifle. Independent loyalist militias have formed to counter the enemy's advance in a scenario where violence and humanitarian disaster have reached unprecedented levels in South Africa since the nuclear attacks on Pretoria and Bloemfontein. 
 
A huge number of war refugees massed near the Congolese border, hoping to leave the wartorn south african country as soon as possible. "There are no words to describe this.. this is not war.. this is a massacre" said one of the refugees.

Refugees from Rhodesia

 

To: Office of the President; Rhodesia

From: Joseph Kabila; Lionel Bata

Subject: Saving the Refugees

 

My dear friend,

 

We see the civil war escalate in Rhodesia and it sours our hearts greatly to see our brothers kill one another. But we understand this is a battle you must fight for your own family. We tell you, we support you fully and we support what you're doing. We only wish there was another way.. But to the refugees, we will take as many as come to our border. We will grant them work visas and employ them within either our mines or our logging camps. Regardless your family will be ours and we will house them and keep them safe until you are able to take them back. We wish for you to quickly end your civil war.

 

Au revoir my brother.

DEATH TOLL REACHES 35.000

BREAKING NEWS - As the civil war reaches the high point in Rhodesia Nyasaland, sources of the Ministry of Defense and the Office of the State President estimate total casualties to be 35.000, but non-government sources talk about at least 40-45.000 dead since the beginning of the conflict. 
 
Emergency services said civilian casualties raised to 3500 after a series of enemy air strikes and missile barrages hit the towns behind the frontline. The Rhodesian Army managed to repel a number of attacks, but government troops have been forced to tactically retreat to reorganize a new line of defense on the eve of new RNU-PF offensive in an attempt to take the capital city. In the Capital City of Livingstone rioting and looting seems to be unstoppable. Cases of murder, robbery and general violence have been reported all over the country. 
 
A once peaceful country now torn apart by one of the most violent conflicts South Africa has ever seen. Thousands of refugees are flocking to the southern provinces still controlled by government troops while the refugees flux towards Congo is outlining an unprecedented humanitarian tragedy. Food and water are luxury goods in certain areas of the country, infrastructures have been crippled by bombings and air strikes and the Government is struggling to keep the situation under control.

RADIO RHODESIA-NYASALAND - The Rhodesian Army carried a successful counter-attack this morning against RNU-PF militias who were forced to retreat north, securing at least for now the position of the city of Victoria (Lusaka) a strategically important settlement in the very heart of Rhodesia. Supported by the Rhodesian Air Force and the Rhodesian Missile Corps, light infantry troops marched trought enemy fortifications despite heavy losses estimated around 1500 for the Rhodesians and 1100 for RNU-PF.
 
The new victory comes after a round of defeats, forcing Rhodesian troops to retreat to the central district, leaving everything behind in the hands of marxist-leninist terrorists who now seem to be uncapable of sustaining a new offensive anytime soon.
 
War efforts are keeping the economy stable, at least when it comes to money reserves, but goods such as water, food and medicines are a rarity in the most remote and rural areas of the country. The morale is high and State President Ian Smith congratulated with the troops for achieving victory and giving new hopes to all the people of Rhodesia Nyasaland.

DEATH TOLL REACHES 55.000

NO HOPE FOR PEACE IN RHODESIA-NYASALAND
AT LEAST 10.000 CIVILIAN CASUALTIES
 
BREAKING NEWS - With the death toll reaching 55.000, many Rhodesians are starting to believe that there is no hope for peace in the once prosperous and peaceful country. The crisis in Rhodesia has affected everyone's life as intense fighting and air raids are destroying what's left of the country's infrastructures after only one week of war between Rhodesian Security Forces and militias of the Rhodesian National Union - Popular Front.
 
Refugees have been relocated outside the Capital City of Livingstone where a humanitarian aid camp has been set up by the authorities to welcome the displaced and the injured, but medicines, water and food are still hard to find. The road network has been severely compromised and communication between the Northern-Eastern provinces and the South are almost non-existant. There is no way for Federal troops to reach the population inside RNU-PF occupied areas, and many are wondering if the United Nations will soon take a decision regarding the humanitarian tragedy occuring in Rhodesia Nyasaland.
 
The Rhodesian Red Cross estimates civilian casualties around 10.000, but efforts to count the bodies are halted by the lack of personnel and equipments to effectively bury the dead. Eyewitnesses have reported mass graves with hundreds of bodies being piled up after RNU-PF strikes hit a neighorhood in Victoria (Lusaka), way behind the main frontline.

Legion

 

The 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Regimental RCTs, the traditional tip of the spear for most Legion campaigns to date, receive orders to prepare for an immediate deployment to Rhodesia. The 5001st Air Transport Group is given orders to undergo an immediate check of all 24 of its C-5B aircraft to ensure the airframes are on point for their routine maintenance schedules prior to playing their part in this effort. The 88th Air Strike Command is given similar orders and likewise prepares its aircraft for combat support duties. The 501st Airborne Battalion is given orders to ready itself for an immediate airdrop to secure and hold what will become Legion's Forward Combat Base within the region. The Combat Engineers of the CEG Group are given orders to prepare for their role along with the men of an entire Legion Civil Action Team. No effort from Legion goes to war without the work of a Legion Supplies, Support, and Services Battalion and of course one is assigned to this rattle trap affair.

 

The Rules of Engagement for the time being are  still being discussed. For now, all those found to armed and refuse to disarm will be shot.

Military Dispatch from the Empire of Tianxia:

 

In light of the absolute humanitarian disaster, the Empire has announced the deployment of a warfighting mission to impose peace settlements on Rhodesia, in compliance with the UN right to protect and the Jia Doctrine.  Our forces are not here to facilitate the negotiation of a peace.  Our forces are here to fight and kill the enemy.  As we speak Imperial Forces are beginning to turn the rebel forces back and destroy their strongholds.

 

Let rebel and government know this alike.  Killing deaths on this scale is unacceptable.  If you fight us head on you will die.  Nor will you hide from us, you will not blend away to fight another day.  You will be see.  You will be ended.

 

-Yuan Jia, Emperor of Tianxia

Minutes after the announcements the first bombs began to fall as Tianxia B-9 strategic bombers flying at high altitudes dropped hundreds of small diameter bombs at rebel radio positions, command posts, and other areas which had been emitting signals intelligence to the Empire's global electronic surveillance network.  

 

Thousands of nano drones would be deployed outwards in a grid across the Northern landscape as large flying A-47 combat drones were given missions to begin hunter killer campaigns against the militant leadership.  At data fusion centers across the Empire the swarms of flying eyes coupled with the Empire vacuuming signals intelligence and communications would be used to prioritize targets and cycle them to the ever enduring presence of the drone forces in country.  

 

Following the lightening air raid, four hundred marine special operators from the Zanzibar base would be over the targets air dropping into rebel territory and around rebel strong holds.  Tianxia would maintain 4 B-11 bombers fully outfitted with arsenals of small diameter bombs circling the rebel controlled areas.  Marine rapid assault teams would merely scout the outer perimeter of rebel controlled camps using remote sensors to signal the four bombers to deliver lethal ordinance onto the targets rapidly degrading the rebel forces ability to deploy any organized resistance.  

 

Of course this was just the first wave as the Diego Garcia and Arabian Armies already were coming en-route in the air with two airborne brigades.  15, 000 Tianxia troops in two armored divisions would depart the Imperial Sphere of Influence entering the Northeast of Rhodesia driving straight across towards the conflict zone.  Behind them two military police brigades moved quickly. Their orders were to keep moving, and engage any opposing force till they took the enemy capital.  Genocide would end here.

PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF RHODESIA NYASALAND DECLARES INDEPENDENCE
RNU-PF MILITIAS GIVE TIANXIAN SOLDIERS A HARD TIME IN " THE VIETNAM OF AFRICA"
 
RADIO RHODESIA-NYASALAND - RNU-PF militias have been forced to retreat to the unforgiving jungles as Tianxian troops crossed the north-eastern border of the country in an attempt to quickly bring the conflict to an end. After the initial setback, rebels have reinforced their positions in the most wild and dangerous environments of the South African country forcing Tianxian troops to chase them.
 
The unforgiving jungles pave the way for a long and stagnating conflict, forcing Tianxian troops to recalculate their times. Marxist-Leninist militias have set up temporary camps and headquarters in the unhabitated forests of the country, while Rhodesian Security Forces are desperately holding their position in the southern border between the self-proclaimed RNU-PF's People's Republic of Rhodesian Nyasaland and Ian Smith's Federal Republic of Rhodesia Nyasaland.
 
Intense fights occured tonight between Federal and Rebel troops, resulting in the death of at least 10.000 fighters on both sides. State President Ian Smith warned expeditionary forces to not underestimate the advantage of rebel fighters who tactically exploit Rhodesia Nyasaland's jungles to counter powerful and technologically advanced weapons. 
 
Radio Rhodesia Nyasaland interviewed Corporal James McAllen of the 3rd Light Company of the 1st African Rifles Division.

hqdefault.jpg
Corporal McAllen poses for a picture in the thick Jungles of Rhodesia

 
HOST: Corporal McAllen, do you think Tianxian soldiers will be able to force RNU-PF militias on their knees in a matter of days?
 
CORPORAL MCALLEN: While RNU-PF militias have no chances against the Tianxian military in open fields, the jungle offers them a huge tactical advantage where only Rhodesian Security Forces have the means and the knowledge to fight, due to our knowledge of the territory and the extremely variable dynamics and weather in the thick jungles of Rhodesia. Underestimating such aspects and factors of the war is a mistake. The same mistake occured in Vietnam where the technologically advanced United States Army suffered heavy losses against the less equipped and less trained Vietcong militias who exploited the geography of the battlefields. Rhodesia Nyasaland is the Vietnam of Africa and any foreign force should never underestimate the difficulty to conduct a war in such wild and hostile environments.
 
HOST: But the Rhodesian Army successfully dealt a number of attacks against RNU-PF militias, forcing them to retreat several times.
 
CORPORAL MCALLEN: Yes, however our light companies are trained to fight in such wild environments. Most of my men were Wildlife Guards who spent years, if not decades, to preserve the wilderness of Rhodesia Nyasaland and their experience is extremely useful against RNU-PF militias who can count on the same experience and advantage on the field.
 
HOST: So you are saying that this war will not be a short war and that technology does not make the difference if fights occur in the aforementioned environments
 
CORPORAL MCALLEN: Exactly. Underestimating RNU-PF's knowledge of the jungles and guerrilla tactics is a mistake, they will give Tianxian troops a hard time, no matter how technologically advanced the military of Tianxia is. You can't move tanks and APCs in the Jungle, you can't conduct any bombing effort if you can't see what lays under the thick vegetation, or under the ground for example. 

HOST: Thank you Corporal McAllen.

CORPORAL MCALLEN:
Thank you, goodbye.

OOC:  Problem with the Vietnam analogy is my armies are Vietnamese and the experience levels are inverted. ;)

 

IC:

 

Tianxia's soldiers were no stranger to the jungle environments, with mandatory tours in the dense unforgiving jungles of South East Asia, and battle hardened in wars against Africa and South America, the Imperial NCO and officer corps had more experience fighting wars than the Africans in the jungle environment. Their civil war had been going on for a few months of fighting.  The People's Liberation had been in a state of jungle warfare for half the past 20 years, its soldiers training against much larger guerrilla armies and much more disciplined in fire fights.

 

Equipped with remote sensing technologies and overhead on demand aerial reconnaissance, soldiers were marching troops into jungles with maximum knowledge of the terrain, using overhead sensors to map what was coming down.  IR sensors and synthetic radar aperture systems penetrated the dense jungle.  Acoustic boomerang systems homed in on positions of snipers, allowing directed fire from Imperial Marksmen to ensure maximum lethality, while Imperial soldiers with access to body armor and advanced combat medicines would not be so easily attrited.

 

The precision air campaign was equally intense.  Free from civilian areas, Imperial troops could call upon aircraft without worry of deconfliction with civilian casualties.  Having tracked targets into thick jungles where their mobility and speed of transit was impaired, the PLAAF would pound the targets with 2000 lbs JDAMs, rather than the 500 lbs SDB, maximizing damage.  

 

Imperial forces with the equipment to continue to maneuver after such devastating attacks would swarm into the areas, using their sensor suites to sweep for life completing the attacks on the guerrilla leadership.

 

Overhead electronic aircraft would continue to vacuum up signals, using it to prioritize drone strikes on key leadership personnel, locate villages with possible insurgent sympathies, and strike at supply depots.  Enemy radio signals, e-mails, twitter messages, cell phone calls etc would be altered by Tianxia cyber command injecting false intelligence, laying ambushes, and injecting uncertainty in the ability of units to coordinate.  The purpose was simple deny the enemy access to any sort of ability to coordinate between rebel groups, deny the enemy the ability to move at night due to the persistence of air power, and deny the enemy maneuver due to the persistence of information superiority to instantly identify the source of an ambush and establish overwhelming fire superiority onto the target near instantaneously, reversing the ambush for the guerrillas.  

 

Villages would be occupied by Imperial garrisons, in a strategic hamlet campaign controlling entry and exit points, denying the insurgents access to food, water, and the ability to coordinate messages with civilian 'runners'.  Strict curfews would be imposed, and those whom did not follow them would be relocated out of country for temporary detention.  In short this would impose further paralysis and strain on the ability to fight any campaign by the geurillas, further squeezing them into pockets twiddling their thumbs while awaiting death from above..  

 

Far from a fair fight, the Imperial Army's anti-geurilla dissuasion strategy would be on full display.  Military resistance however determined would and always would be futile.

 

OOC:  You're like the 8th person whose tried jungle guerrilla warfare against me.  Your analogy is wrong (as is your analysis of Vietnam tactics), query me if you want the details why... also its a pet peeve of mine, cause people really need to study this.  Needless to say the past 40 years of warfare in sensor awareness and precision of fire have drastically altered the balance of how wars are fought, and the past 10 in Iraq and Afghanistan have made the Vietcong type campaign pretty much untenable.

OOC: The thing is very simple: as i've said before the war follows IG evolution, that's why i discouraged any "foreign military rp other than peacekeepers", because whoever it is, it follows IG evolution, the same goes for me. My post was a suggestion, don't engage too much in war roleplays because if IG i don't win or any of my allies does, nobody in this RP wins. Rebels have AK47 and Federal Troops have FNFAL and cold war fighter jets and tanks, but what makes the difference is the IG war - which is what really shaped the RP in this thread.

Support aircraft along with combat helicopters will start to arrive at the nearby airfield within the next day or so. The 17th Air Controller Squadron, 23rd Air Base Wing will be air traffic control for all aircraft coming in and out of, what is now named Air Base Lusaka.

 

The Paraguayan Agency for International Development (PAID) Regional Director, Mr. Felippe Villena, has requested Paraguayan Peacekeepers for security at a nearby refugee camp along with equipment to move food, sanitized water, and tents to the area. He also requests foreign assistance in terms of medical personnel and supplies be sent to Camp Hope immediately. There are an estimated 1,500 refugees at this one camp.

RADIO RHODESIA-NYASALAND -
Nearly 2,000 Rhodesians fled the war-ravaged Central district today. They were able to leave safely thanks to the help of Paraguayan aid workers and a rare temporary cease-fire agreement between government and marxist-leninist rebel forces. 
After reports of starvation and disease in the northern provinces triggered national outcry, rebels and the Federal government decided that the residents of central and northern provinces near the frontline should be able to leave before fighting resumes.
 
Federal troops have resorted to blockades of rebel-held areas in an effort to flush out fighters, keeping food and supplies from entering. Famished men, women and children carried their belongings out of Victoria this morning "We are going to Camp Hope, Livingstone" said one of the refugees.
 
Some of the elderly and sick were carried by Rhodesian Red Cross workers on stretchers. Men were lined up and searched by Federal Security Forces. "We didn't see a piece of bread for days," said one woman. "We were eating leaves and grass." A government official at the scene, said the evacuated civilians were taken to temporary camp outside Victoria (Lusaka).

With the UN Mandate for peacekeeping operations granted it was time to move. Two divisions belonging to the Seventh Army would take up positions throughout the Federal Republic. While this area was generally considered peaceful the forces had to make sure that no rebel elements could rise up. The by now legendary First Division meanwhile would be deployed at the frontline with the People's Republic where they were to reinforce Tianxian forces on their assault. The division had become one of the most battle-hardened units within the Thracians and had a record for combat in all kinds of environment, including jungles.
 
The much more immediate concern was the humanitarian disaster that had developed. This would see a coordinate operation by Apollo's Hand and the Hellenic Air Force. Protected by the Seventh Army Apollo's Hand set up more advanced camps inside Rhodesia and just on the border while the Hellenic Air Force used its significant tactical airlifting force to drop much needed food, medical supplies and other key resources over harder to reach regions. Apollo's Hand would also set up camps on the frontline which moved with the Hellenic Forces to quickly bring aid to the innocents behind enemy lines that needed it. For once the Athenian tools of war served as tools for humanitarianism.

 

Additionally permission was granted to all relevant forces to cross the Athenian protectorate.

The 1st Airborne Division was deployed to Rhodesia along with two F-35 squadrons as part of the United Nations peacekeeping force after receiving clearance from the Athenian Federation.  After setting up, operations were begun with the distribution of humanitarian supplies and the establishment of refugee camps as well as providing medical care and security in the Commonwealth area of operations.  At the same time, assets were made available to Tianxian or Athenian forces conducting operations directly against the rebels in the North if needed.

The 501st Airborne Battalion would lead the way for Legion troops in an airdrop codenamed Operation Missile Command. A full Airstrike Regiment would be deployed to the dropzone well in advance along with ELINT vehicles to sniff out possible radar and other sources of fire control emissions. Once the 501st is in place and a landing zone is secure, the lead elements of the 1st Legion Regimental Combat, or "Les Enfants Perdue" as the 1st is known, will rapidly follow. A last minute adjustment to the Orbat of Legion's Relief Forces will include an Special Investigations team to assist in sniffing out the root causes of the rebellion to determine if the current government is complicit in acts against the native populations.

The First Battalion, Royal Marine Commandos would begin landing in Beira city before moving across the Athenian protectorate in a convoy of armoured vehicles comprised of CV90's and assorted trucks. Helicopters from the LPD would ferry the Force Recon Company to the front line to the town of Chipata, several miles behind the battle lines.

 

There, they would establish a small FOB for the Marines for future operations in Peacekeeping and provide support to UN forces and Government forces in the area.

 

An engineering Battalion would be flown into Rhodesia by several transport aircraft. The Engineer Battalion would disembark at Air Base Lusaka and re-join the Marine forces in order to provide support for the base, humanitarian efforts and battlefield maintenance.

After establishing a base of operations, the Marines would begin peacekeeping operations along the eastern most front line settlements, in some places, using the engineers to construct field defences in the most vulnerable locations. Following standard RoE, they would only open fire, if fired on.

LPDs entering the Indian Ocean from Denmark would be buzzed by low flying patrol aircraft.  

 

Entrance into the Indian Ocean by hostile navies is restricted.  Turn back immediately or you will be sunk per long standing Tianxia Military Orders.

OOC Better timelapse and assume my forces landed on the other side of Africa and marched across the continent.

The Norse warships would turn around, confused and offended at being referred to as a "hostile navy", when they are operating under UN mandate and land at Walvis Bay in Nambia.
