North Central Curristan

Town of Saiatra

10am

The town of Saiatra bustled with the late morning traffic. The traffic was slowly getting more packed due to a van breaking down on the main junction. Motorists nearby wondered what was going on. Suddenly they got their answer.

The van exploded in a huge fireball killing 2 civilians and flipping several cars parked nearby. Simultaneously all over Northern Curristan car bombs exploded killing many more civilians.

A tape arrived at the Curristan National News Headquarters:

*A masked man in front of the camera*

"This is the Curristan Revolutionary Front. We are a splinter group of the World Liberation Front made up of revolutionaries from inside Curristan and the former Top Gear. We wanted to cause panic both in Top Gear and Curristan but the war forced us to concentrate on Curristan. We will cause as much chaos as we can and hopefully ingite another revolution. You will find us to be most cunning in our approach. We have many small arms that we liberated from civil war stockpiles during the panic. Now we will use them on their former owners. The Curristan Government will now either resign or face our wrath. Your choice...."

*Tape ends*

The Curristan President's response:

"This Curristan Revolutionary Front is just another organisation that wants to cause havoc in our country. Lets see what they have got. This will be interesting. I have 3 years of military experience so lets see what this upstart can do."

"Kitex is willing to send in the 2nd Infantry Division to help Curristan defeat these terrorists."

"We will consider your offer as we will be convening an emergecy senate meeting."

All over Northern Curristan, armed insurgents attacked Curristan Military installations. These installations were manned by small numbers of units so orders were given to fall back and destroy any equipment. This was completed and by midday defensive positions had been manned. The Curristan Revolutionary Front had managed to secure a 20 square mile area of territory. Estimates at the moment guessed that around 300 guerilla soldiers had made the surprise attacks, but the CRF had an estimated total strength of around 1000 guerilla soldiers. However the number was inaccurate and only a general estimate.

The Curristan National Army reinforcements were approaching. Battle would soon be joined...

"We are troubled by the emergence of the Curristan Revolutionary Front, and we remember that the nation of Colstream and the former Byzantine Empire worked together to defeat the World Anarchy Front. If Curristan would like, we can send over 5,000 Special Forces to Curristan to help them to overcome the threat."

OOC: Remember the good, ol' times? :wub:

"We feel that smaller numbers of teams will be better. At the moment we do not know their capibilities or tactics so we advise that you wait for the time being. We will keep that offer on the table and get back to you on it."

8pm

Near the village of Vartay

The edge of the western area of the CRF occupied zone

The leading units of the 4th Division, a veteran unit that had been one of the first re-equiped with the pre civil war military equipment approached the outskirts of the village. A lead M1A1 Abrams MBT spotted two CRF rebels attempting to get a heavy machine gun in position. The 120mm gun traversed and pointed at where the rebels were. It paused for a moment, then fired. The shell, an armour piercing round, punched a hole through the wall and exploded. As the smoke cleared, the two rebel soldiers were no longer there and the heavy machine gun in pieces.

Suddenly a mortar shell landed on top of the Abrams and bounced off. The soldiers ran for cover as more landed around them. The Abrams crew was safe, as the mortar shells would just jolt the tank. It would be more of a nuisance rather than a threat. The tanks coaxial 50 caliber machine gun suddenly came into life, spraying the nearby houses with armour piercing rounds and tracer rounds. The tank then moved into the village and the supporting soldiers followed.

The battle for Vartay had begun.

20,000 Soldiers tasked with Homeland Defense were redeployed to the Curristan border with the Taskforce in former Top Gear aiming at the border at that side quickly every possible point of violation would face several fully armed soldiers.

Closing of Curristan Border

While the Imperial Union understands the situation Curristan is in we can not and will not allow problems entering our own borders. As such as of 0:00 on the 18th of October the whole Curristan Border will be guarded and no one will be allowed through.

The insurgency in Curristan severely distresses the Kingdom of Cochin. Until such a time as Curristan Government deems fit to resume, the Kingdom shall withhold delivery of the TROPS reactor power plants ordered by Curristan Government.

We also ask Curristan Government whether we should withdraw our civilian scientists and businessmen currently stationed in Curristan or whether adequate protection would be granted to them.

We can assure the Kingdom of Cochin that your civilian scientists and businessman have already been evacuated southwards to Area 60. There they will be kept safe and out of harms way as the problem is to the north.

Curristan understands the Imperial Unions actions. We will deal with this problem as quickly as possible.

3am

Near the village of Vartay

The edge of the western area of the CRF occupied zone

The battle for the village had been going on for some time. C130H Hercules Transport Aircraft of the Curristan Air Force had began dropping supplies south of the village to sustain the soldiers fighting the CRF soldiers attempting to hold the village. A Curristan soldier had been killed and several injured. 12 deadrebel soldiers were accounted for and many still hiding in the rubble. The 4th Division's M119 105mm Howitzers were pounding the area and preventing any reinforcements or supplies getting in through the northern end of the village.

The Strategic Reconnaissance Agency of the RCDF shall convey all relevant satellite imagery to Curristan. Also we offer to deploy some of our S-RECO , Surveillance and Reconnaissance UAVs with its control teams so that you may use its tactical reconnaissance capabilities. The S-RECOs are reasonably stealthy platforms with optical, radar and thermal reconnaissance capabilities. They can also track radio coordinates and are efficient electronic intelligence platforms.

If Curristan so wishes we could send you 2 S-RECOs very soon.

We thank you for your help. The S-RECO teams are welcome to come to Curristan. Their contribution will be very valuable.

A Halob with 2 S-RECOS are on its way to Curristan. The aircraft has call sign HB2941 and the S-RECOs have call signs SR1272 and SR2154. We are also sending a Telemetry truck, 4 Control Consoles and 10 RCAF personnel who would control the UAV and convey the tactical intelligence to your forces. The delegation is led by an RCAF Major, Maj. VJ Bishnoi, who is an expert in tactical intelligence gathering. He has been ordered to offer full cooperation to your forces. The personnel and equipments would be under Curristan Command for the duration of their service.

On arriving at Curristan the team would await transportation. The S-RECOs and the Telemetry truck would have to be based at an air field with hangar facilities along with 6 RCAF personnel. Remaining 4 personnel including Maj. Bishnoi would wait for transportation to wherever Curristan Military would want them to bring their intelligence equipments. One console would be based at the hangar itself along with the Telemetry truck, while the other 3 consoles would be handled by a technician each thus giving 3 intelligence output stations that may be accessed by the Curristan Military.

7am

Near the village of Vartay

The edge of the western area of the CRF occupied zone

The CRF fighters had been pushed through the village square after heavy fighting. The 4th Division's infantry had managed to secure a hold on the village while its M2 Bradley APCs had moved around the flanks and had surrounded the remaining CRF fighters in the northern areas of the village.

Private Luke Jackson looked through the telescopic sight of his M24 Sniper Weapon System (SWS). He could see that two CRF fighters were attempting to escape through the cordon around the village but were pinned down by heavy fire. One stood up. Private Jackson aimed at the rebel soldiers head. He turned and looked in Private Jacksons general direction, but could obviously not see him in his hiding place.

Private Jackson pulled the trigger. The crack of the barrel was drowned out by the constant fire, so the fighter would not know what hit him. The bullet went through the CRF soldiers left temple. He fell backwards and disappeared from sight. The now dead fighters mate woke up to the fact that he was on his own. He ran out of where he had been hidden and was immediately hit by machine gun fire. "That guy was a fool." Private Jackson thought to himself.

11am

The battle for the village had raged for 27 hours. The village was now in Curristan hands and mopping up operations were now underway. Some fighters had slipped the cordon and were now heading northeast to regroup with the main force.

The team was loaded onto a C130J Super Hercules Transport Aircraft that had been sent specially for them. They would be flown to a temporary airfield before being sent in a special convoy to the Curristan Military Headquaters at Camp Kingston.

On arriving at Camp Kingston the soldiers immediately set out deploying the Telemetry trucks which would communicate with the MILSATs of RCDF to communicate with the S-RECOs. Some soldiers set about assembling the S-RECOs which had been palletized for the journey. Meanwhile Maj. Bishnoi and 3 technicians set about to the Curristan Military Headquarters with the consoles.

Getting the UAVs ready the soldiers at the base launched it. Being an RCAF unit it was launched by a take off run rather than as rocket launched as for the RCA and RCN variants.

Reaching the Headquarters the consoles were activated and communications set up with the MILCOM network of the Royal Cochin Defense Forces. First off the net were the satellite reconnaissance of the area requested by Curristan. Next came the reconnaissance feed from the S-RECO currently in air. The S-RECOs could be remotely controlled by the operators at HQ and could be tasked specifically Curristan Military to gain specific intelligence. The electronic warfare suites in the S-RECO was already sorting out the various electromagnetic frequencies in its neighborhood to track, isolate and sort enemy groupings.

The intelligence that was being given would be directed for future operations. The CRF had been completely contained in the 20 square mile territory it had taken. Now the Curristan Military would make sure they stayed there before opening its first major offensive.
