De Breif Session in attendance Sir Jonathan Brockenhurst Head of SI7
De Breif by Captain Bruce Al Mightee 3 squadron SASR & commander of Task Force Black.
Gentlemen you requested that myself & some of my boys from 3 squadron SASR team up with Task Force Black to coordinate an assault to retake the city of Khartoum.
I Breifed TFB on our main objective, the way i saw it we had to force Fyid & his A.R.S.E. into a bottleneck, leave them with little option but to surrender or back out of Khartoum.
It was not going to be easy i wanted an end as well as a new beginning for the people of khartoum.
no longer would they have to live under the iron fist of the current regime!
TFB's Primary objectives were to take the Cobra's Head off!
to gain control of :
The Water purifiaction Plant.
This was to be done effecting a shock & awe technique, to strike hard & fast to obtain a fast & firm grip on the city once this was established we could methodically break FYID & His Elite down piece by piece.
Bravo 1-1, delta 2-2, Echo3-3, Foxtrot 4-4, Golf 5-5 & Hotel 6-6 were to spreahead the assault on our primary objectives.
A hard fought battle ensued as we entered the city, we were an unwelcome site & resistance as we expected was high.
during the course of several hours we had sucessfully achieved this pinnacle position and slowly we were beginning to loosen their grip on the city.
We had taken their mosque so no sanctury could be sought, the church was a little harder to take as was their military HQ.
Fyids Men were forced east of the city & rallied on their strengths our base line was now secure & solid across the west of the city & we had it locked down tight gentlemen.
Their stronghold was the Defence corps & governemt Row, from here they threw everything they had at us including some impressive mortar strikes, the erraticness & misuse of this artillary actually caused us collateral damage and almost lost us the city's money & gold & Stingers at one point.
our taking of the treasury left us finding an empty facility, the king & the General had obviously seen thier fate & cleared out the funds little was left but worthless bonds etc. we secured the treasury & continued on task.
Zero Alpha's QRF team got intel of a location of stinger missiles being set, it appeared that if the general could not take city he would take it down! & use his Surface to air missiles on select targets in Khartoum.
Members of 3 Squadron took the advantage of the dusk to sneak in & take out the sites & retrieve the stingers.
Bravo 1-1 joined the party by finding the location of the secret bunker of the General & upon taking this key objective they found the loot! & managed to obtain Crates of Gold & Cases upon cases of cash!
We had now removed their air defence capability, obtained their funds and pushed further into the city.
All was going to plan & we were getting our own way. I do have to say i told you so Sir! but the idea of bringing a member of the royal family into Khartoum as ambassador was a bad idea & it turned into exactly that as Hubba Bubba brother of the King, fearful for his brother made his own attempt to locate & reason with his brother BOB Ittin Chuffa, giveing his protective force the slip he venturted out across khartoum & was Grabbed by the A.R.S.E. His location unknown we now had to send a team to locate & retrive a body, unsure of its whereabouts & state of mortality.
the darkness came & went & as the sun rose Task force black took advantage of every oppertunity they could to gain ground & deal a cruel blow to the moral of Fyids Army. leaving them now retreating to the Kings residence The A.R.S.E. had been penetrated. A body has been discovered & we are awaiting to hear if it is that of KING BOB,
Reports are that the general fled Khartoum Helped by members of ther International Revolutionary Council (I.R.C) Hubba Bubba was retrieved from his captors as they clung desperatly to any leverage they had but with the king pressumed dead & their leader Gone, it was not long before we broke them! with nowhere to run Surrender was their only option.
The City is now ready to be handed back to the Chuffa Family, i would not state that the city is safe as there are still memebrs of Fyids loyalists out there! & the General Himself is still at large though rumours are he has fled to morocco under the IRC's orders.
But TFB were Awesome sir! truly Awesome!
My suggestion is that we stay here until you send in troops to protect these people while Khartoum re establshes itself
