JOINT SPECIAL OPERATIONS COMMAND 10TH SPECIAL FORCES GROUP “ONE TEAM, ONE MISSION”

OPERATION “ROBIN SAGE” ANNEX “A”

OPFOR EYES ONLY

1


FOREWORD Welcome to the 10th SFG’s Exercise “Robin Sage”, it is the last phase of the Special Forces Qualification Course (SFQC) before 10th SFG Trainees/Candidates receive their "Green Berets". This ArmA II mission is an unconventional warfare (UW) exercise. The Special Forces trainees/candidates are required to apply and exercise the skills taught to them in the Special Forces Qualification Course/School. This mission will be as realistic as possible within the bounds of computer coding and human role playing. The goal of Robin Sage is to have trainees demonstrate:         

Troop leading procedures Mission planning: (Warning Orders (WARNOs), Patrol Orders, Frag Orders (FRAGOs)) Small unit tactics: (Raids, ambushes, recons) Air operations (Drop Zones (DZ), Landing Zones (LZ), message pick-up) Basic field craft: (survival, expedient navigation, etc...) Demolitions Communications Weapons Common skill tasks

As a participating player in this mission you will fall into one of four categories. Each category has been given an Operations Order (OPORD) or Mission Script; in order for this exercise to be successful each player must follow their OPORD or Mission Script. 

Opposing Forces (OPFOR), traditionally are not members of the 10th SFG, and come from other allied units or organizations. As OPFOR they are assigned the task of defending certain objectives, acting as a response force and seeking out or destroying BLUFOR or Guerrilla Forces. They are supplemented by computer AI.

Friendly Forces (BLUFOR) are 10th SFG Personnel, 10th SFG Trainees/Candidates or Pilots. Neither pilots nor 10th SFG Personnel are subject to evaluation and their sole purpose is to provide transportation, role-play or drop supplies to BLUFOR units. SF Students have been given at random, a series of objectives to complete. Such objectives include but are not limited to the training, advising, and assisting of guerrilla forces, the completion of certain objectives in a set amount of time. Some of those objectives will require the entire team to complete; others less. Some objectives have to be completed at the same time; others not.

Civilian players are generally 10th SFG Instructors or other role playing models, and under the Rule of Engagement (ROE) cannot be shot or killed unless performing an act that would disqualify them. Such acts are but not limited to, being a saboteur or otherwise becoming an armed combatant.



Guerillas Forces are determined to liberate their country from oppression. These individuals are 10th SFG Instructors that role-play the indigenous leaders and are supplemented by Computer AI.

As this is an exam, 10th SFG Members are prohibited from discussing the mission events, tactics used, objectives or any information that would jeopardize the mission integrity with 10th SFG Candidates or Trainees that have not participated in the mission. I ask those allied individuals that are participating as OPFOR also to do the same and not discuss the mission outside of those individuals that have participated. Over the last few weeks 10th SFG Candidates have been scored and given points based on how well they did during training. These have been recorded on an Excel Spreadsheet, and the sheet has been sorted by the total points scored by each of the candidates. In Order to pass Candidate School, students must have a minimum score of 1800 with a maximum score of 2400, Robin Sage in one of the few areas where an individual can generate a negative score. Therefore I cannot stress how important it is for the candidates to do their very best, as this mission will in essence sum up all of what they have learned and hopefully been practicing. This exam is designed so that neither party has a clear upper hand; it is what you make of it. This is Robin Sage!

VERY RESPECTFULLY, OPERATOR REDHAWK 10TH SFG/XO

INTRODUCTION Welcome and thank you for participating in Operation Robin Sage. As members of the OPFOR Team you will be playing a vital role in our training process. As stated earlier this is the final exam for our trainees and it is designed to be as realistic as possible within the bounds of computer coding and human role playing. As OPFOR you represent a military force hostile to the United States and recently there has been an increase in guerilla activity within your country. On the island there are various military assets that the 10th SFG trainees will attempt to engage and destroy. To even the playing field you will not know which asset or assets they will be targeting. The mission designer has utilized Kronsky’s Urban Patrol Script to place patrols in some of the countryside, but not all of it can is covered. Additionally, computer AI has been place in and around the various military objectives. Since computer AI does not necessary react well, your group provides that edge of unpredictability.

MISSION DESIGNER’S INTENT The role of OPFOR in this mission is to provide a more realistic reaction by enemy forces thru utilizing a mixture of human players and AI. Secondly, to raise the stakes so trainees at the end of their training feel that they indeed earned their right to wear the 10th SFG Tag. The OPFOR commander can decide which of the listed military assets they care to defend. They may defend all, some or none of the military assets or may elect to remain as a reactionary response force, allowing the AI to defend the military assets and only respond once they are engaged. Please remember some role-playing is required by the OPFOR side. For example, in real life the enemy would not know on which day or hour they would be attacked. So once the mission starts do not actively seek them out; we request OPFOR to wait 10 minutes before any OPFOR unit moves out from its initial starting point. If BLUFOR units parachute into OPFOR’s immediate or visual area then of course OPFOR may destroy or pursue them. BLUFOR like OPFOR needs a place to start the mission from and instructors need a place to watch and listen to the exercise unfold. Therefore do not pursue the enemy past the black border line or shaded area. One last item is the OPFOR Commander may receive some inputs or directions from 10th SFG Instructors via Team Speak Channel Commander. Please comply with them as only so much can be replicated in this game.

TIME AND WEATHER The in game mission/exercise time will start in the late evening and the weather will range from cloudy to stormy. Moon Phase: New Moon

OPFOR MILITARY ASSETS/EQUIPMENT All countries have valuable military assets that help that country defend itself or prosecute warfare; the OPFOR government of the Democratic People's Republic of Podagorsk is no different. Across the face of the country side of Podagorsk there are numerous Military Assets and targets. How you defend them is up to you, remember some role-playing is required by the OPFOR side. Please don’t go immediately to an objective and hide to ambush them, in real life the enemy would not know on which day or hour they would be attacked. The following is what your nation considers to be vital to their Military Strategy: Grid Location

These military assets have been assigned a number of AI Guards to protect the objective, but this is the minimum one would expect to find during a time of international tension. In the event BLUFOR destroys one of your country’s valuable military assets, you will be notified via your “Side Chat” of which assets was destroyed by a trigger. This is to simulate the passing of information across your military communications network. Your OPFOR commander may react to it as he/she feels fit.

OPFOR STARTING/RESPAWN LOCATIONS The bulk of your team will start at the large military reservation located on the southeastern end of Podagorsk. This installation will be your re-spawn location in the event your team cannot revive each other. Your aviation assets will located at the island’s one and only airport located on the southern end of the map, make note this is an island with a small straight therefore a boat will be provided at the island’s north dock and Zirnitra docks. Your pilots will start out at this location with their aviation assets, but will re-spawn at the large military reservation. There is no vehicle or equipment re-spawn/re-spawn point for this mission. Please use your vehicle and other equipment wise as what you are issue with is all you will have for the mission duration.

OPFOR AMMO STORAGE/CACHE LOCATIONS Ammunition, and other small arms beyond what OPFOR are initially equipped with, are located at the various military bases throughout Podagorsk. Please note that these weapon storage areas (Ammo Crates), vehicles and aircraft are subject to dispose as BLUFOR/Guerrilla Forces see fit if found. If OPFOR finds a BLUFOR or Guerrilla Weapons Cache, vehicle, or aircraft during your patrol, OPFOR units may dispose of it as you see fit. Grid Location

Some vehicles, tanks, artillery, and aircraft belonging to SLP forces will be locked and unusable to either side, as some of these may be targets or merely window dressing.

OPFOR’s PRESENT SITUATION Democratic People's Republic of Podagorsk and the Republic of Chernarus have been at odds with each other since the break-up of the former Soviet Union. This is mostly due to a border dispute between the two countries. With Chernarus’ current state of political unrest, the Podagorsk’s political leaders chose to invade Chernarus feeling there was no better opportunity to increase its country size and resolve the issue once and for all. Their reasoning was with the current civil war between the western backed democratic government and the pro-communist rebels, Chernarus would be unable to respond. Unfortunately they were wrong, and Chernarus mounted a limited response by bombing Podagorsk largest military airfield three weeks ago. Damage was limited, but the Podagorsk government was surprised. Concern is mounting in the political and military structure of Podagorsk with the Chernarussian government recent request for western help and the recent appearance of a United States Expeditionary Strike Group off the coast of Chernarus. The Podagorsk’ government has entered into negotiations with Chernarus and the United Nations, and the military is gearing up to defend itself.

TERRAIN MAP MAP- Podagorsk

The above map is to give you an idea of the size of land mass involved. An 8.5 megabyte PNG graphic showing the island in great detail will be provided to allow the OPFOR to plan their actions prior to mission start. Unfortunately, I have not been able to convert it into any other format
