TO: A Coy
FROM: Emmet, Maj, CO
SUBJECT: WARNO - OP HERACLES XI
CLASSIFICATION: NATO/OTAN SECRET
A Coy have secured compounds in Y6J along the edge of the DARA Y KUNDUZ West of TAPPEH KA.
A Coy has encountered fierce resistance west of target area from prepared and camouflaged positions mounting heavy weapons and associated IED screen.
J2 assess that drop off in SA attacks and I-COM chatter indicates that enemy forces are preparing to withdraw and evacuate casualties.
Enemy AA capabilities assessed to include at least one mobile ZU-23 AAA and at least one SA-16/18 MANPAD.
A Coy will advance to contact across DARA Y KUNDUZ river and clear through TAPPEH KA in order to maintain pressure on the enemy and force a collapse thus preventing future use of TAPPEH KA as a staging ground for attacks against TNA and UKF.
OWN MAIN EFFORT
My own main effort will be to advance East across the bridge, then turn North to clear through the town in order to clear it of remaining enemy forces, arms and materiel. Once Tappeh Ka is clear, I will withdraw overland North and East via Y9H21 and Y7B9 to FOB Churchill.
