    In order to surround us from the other side, the Voss occupation forces will take about two days to cross the river from an undefended point.

    This was an aerial photo taken as of a few hours ago. They intend to smoke us out with artillery and even managed to furnish out a few tanks from their storage. Our presence here is important, as it keeps the enemy from crossing Helena river and into the Norwood region.

    Now, for the meat and potatoes of our last mission:

    The cold storage box that we managed to extract from Engineer Oderkon contains what paranormal logistics labels as a Midian- or a Vampire.

    Apparently, her name is Helena Vonchek. A "native" citizen to Ragnyll before the country was even established. As per civil law we must see her as a citizen first, and not a weapon of Voss. It would seem that that the Voss has a protocol in place to not only extract our Ibonyte, but are also looking to engineer demi-human soldiers by finding raw material and screening our citizenry for them.

    As the map looks now, you probably want to go West and up, because that's a lot of tanks to the north.

    Of course you have to find a way across the river first.

    With the new artillery in place, the Eastern most house is simultaneously a better and worse shooting position.

    More targets, more return fire.

    But with those tanks arranged as they are, bringing that arm down the right way could be a hell of a momentum swing.
    >> Concerned citizen 07/17/11(Sun)14:45 No.15613825

    Well, we can easily set up a jump pad on the west end and pick off the ghouls and other undead nasties from the safety of the river. The biggest roadblack there would be that tank to the north and the sniper on the roof.

    If we're feeling particularly ballsy, we can actually set up a jump pad on the roof of the eastern house, which would put us in a position to flank the armor and/or attack the artillery pieces directly. With any luck, we might even be able to hijack them and turn them on the tanks. Probably a good idea to smoke up that area too, since that route has literally zero cover.

    Of course, we'll also have to start taking advantage of our newly discovered support capability. Being able to call down artillery strikes and thin out their armor was a HUGE help near the end of the last mission.
    >> IronCommand !SjkHabNIL2 07/17/11(Sun)16:03 No.15614559

    The reality of calling down support like that is that they may not be available 100 percent of the time. Our air coverage is closer to zero than I would like, as we have yet to retake the Alban airfields to the east before bombing runs are an option to us.

    However as far as land traffic goes, artillery can support us in a timely manner, as well as a good income of troops and supplies. The only problem is the lack of veterans, as they are all fighting the Vosskon advance on Shadow Valley.

    To list the Logistic support units ; they are

    Armored Troop Transport [Norwood Farms] x 2

    1-3 Bitanks Under production.

    If you can guess,
    They're civilian volunteers with outdated equipment, but nonetheless they all went through the Civil Draft as we did and are just as good as soldiers. Getting back Stilemar will be important in making sure that this improves.

    I think it would be prudent to have our artillery active from the start, perhaps behind the Western building.

    We should also use smokescreens to their fullest - to cover ourselves from the tanks and any approaches we might make.

    Additionally, it might be a good idea for us to catapult soldiers from the roof of the western house to the other rooftop, while launching a secondary strike from the broken bridge with the BiTanks or missile crews to keep the tanks busy.

    Once those guys are sufficiently busy, we can send missile crews to the house to flank them.

    How we'll deal with the artillery, I don't quite know... the only thing I can think of is to capture their radio frequencies and direct them to fire at their own lines.
    >> [S3] Pvt. Tavish !pc.EeHifNs 07/17/11(Sun)18:51 No.15616030

    Of course, this would be a highly suicidal maneuver, and it would require us to maintain our utmost aggressive stance.

    >And likely rely on our ability to spawn a lot of guys.

    Additionally, can we get stuff set up before hand? Hell, can we SWIM across the river for a stealth mission?

    Putting it up on a Sunday probably has something to do with it.

    Also, I blitzing the east side via jump pad and spiking/hijacking the guns seems much more viable since we'd be on higher ground, making it tougher for the tanks to fire on us. Of course, we have to heavily smoke the pad and the LZ to keep them from blasting us when we're the most vulnerable.

    Shit, well ain't this just the place to be. As i see the only way we can assault is through the west side where we will have the time to set up and while the tanks take the long way around to get to us. The only problem are those artillery formations, We have to take those out before we go anywhere unless we want to bathe in a rain of fire.
    >> IronCommand !SjkHabNIL2 07/17/11(Sun)21:45 No.15618063

    In that case, why not send 2 Hr teams on the roof to make quick work of the artillery , they are definitely in a prime spot for it.

    If you time this along with your attack to the west, you can either kite enemy armor away, from the factory or pincer the center.

    Dont forget that Bitanks can JUMP.
    >> [S3] Pvt. Tavish !pc.EeHifNs 07/17/11(Sun)22:27 No.15618432

    Can they jump across the river?

    And since we have engineers, can we, well, knock down a building to make a makeshift bridge?

    >> [M]Sgt.Iceval !!lIURwBKIw5c 07/17/11(Sun)22:35 No.15618491
    Hmm alright here is what i suggest, We set the Heavy teams and have them fire then give them some smoke cover so the tanks don't gun them down, The rest of yall hit the west side harder than the fist of an angry god. The plan is to lure the tank column into the ally way and have our bit tanks cross the river and flank when they get all nice and cramped in that side road. If the plan works we can deal with one tank on time while they are packed like sardines. Pull this off and I'll see if I can't requisition some real meat for sacks of shit. I guess that leave me to deal with our new recruit from the ice box.
    >> [S3] Pvt. Tavish !pc.EeHifNs 07/17/11(Sun)22:41 No.15618538

    Sure, it can work.

    Also, do you think it's possible for an Hr team to ride a jumping BiTank over the bridge?

    Or two S's to ride a BiTank across the river to the artillery pieces to steal 'em?

    We could reasonably mostly ignore the east side for at least the initial push to the west. Remember, there's a tank on the west, it would be nice if it exploded immediately.

    I think there's something to be said for leaving a small group, maybe an S, an A, or an Hr, or some combination, behind, to shoot across the river and make it harder for the enemy to get a clear shot at the attacking team without getting shot at in return.
    >> Anonymous 07/17/11(Sun)23:24 No.15618899

    how long could we safely ignore those enemy arties? I assume they can fire anywhere on the map

    well assuming we could deploy our own arty at phase one, we could shell the enemy artillery position at the beginning, not sure if it will be enough to destroy them though

    we could definitely destroy that one tank north(and probably the one close behind it) with one of our tanks and an Hr squad at phase one

    About Artillery:
    " As for the Artillery crew, they say that one turn is needed to c fire, and a another turn to reload and possibly recalibrate to [visible coordinates] so try to plan their targets one turn ahead. I am told they only have 3 volleys left per cannon "
    >> [S]Steiner !!QxtsrZs7+PX 07/17/11(Sun)23:36 No.15619009
    Infantry along the west is sparse. I think moving across the west and the up and around behind the artillery and tanks is our best bet. Ideally we should only take a few units over to the west. First we should eliminate the snipers on the roofs so as not to get picked off or pinned.

    If we can coordinate some artillery on the enemy tanks and artillery on the northeast side as we move out it could cause enough confusion to keep them occupied while we get around them.

    Smokescreens would be ideal, but if we move in deep night we may have a better chance.

    Hammering the Voss tanks and Artillery early seems to be a safe bet. If they want to fire on us and blast out holdout then they're going to do it eventually. We mine as well hit them as soon as we can and disrupt them. Hit them hard and fast.

    If we can suppress the snipers and infantry from out side then we should be able to send over a small team or two to swing around. Spreading out may see us cut off if we get sloppy but ideally we can mop up easily. This way we can keep pressure on them from the holdout while the infiltration unit(s) clean out the streets to the west and move north.

    we have 3 arty pieces so we could order them to fire at the enemy arty at phase one

    also at phase one we could take out the closest north tank

    dealing with the snipers at phase one would need a perfectly positioned infantry unit(S, Hr, M) or we could just pop smoke to block their LOS

    all's left is that tank blocking west

    also, I noticed that ghouls are not very active during daytime

    well worst case scenario of enemy arty being able to hit anywhere on the map, we might have to maintain a constant smoke screen over our units or we risk being shelled every other phase (they could also take out our own artillery if IC places them on-map)

    and looking at the average phase per game(estimate of about 6), and the fact that arties need a phase to reload, I say we should use them early to maximize their use

    Increasing your elevation improves your range. 1 level = +1 to range.

    Firing beyond your range reduces your roll. 1 extra hex = -1 (Let's say with an increased elevation, my range is 6. If I want to hit someone at a range of 7, instead of hitting on 7 or less, I would hit on a 6 or less).

    There may be bonuses on firing at closer range (far below your maximum range), as well as getting shot at from lower elevations (as in you are on top of a building while getting shot at from the street below). The exact rules on these need to be confirmed, however.

    Damn, missed the planning meeting... I'm just gonna go ahead and suggest some shit anyhow.

    Since we're already sending out our vampire to run around and place charges across the river, how about having her sabotage the artillery pieces? Either straight up demo charge them, or if it's too risky, place smoke bombs around them to cause confusion and obscure their LOS?

    >> Anonymous 07/18/11(Mon)07:59 No.15622200

    why don't we just ask her to kill all opposition in the town while were at it?

    jokes aside, IC would probably limit the amount of things she will do

    don't remember any answers yet regarding the engineers though if I would hazard a guess, they should be able to repair vehicles and bridges would take multiple phases to fix, setting up jump pads would make better sense

    Doesn't hurt to ask what the limits are, though. Also, what are the chances she could turn one of our number (obviously a volunteer) into a vampire? It would be a great sacrifice, but it would make a tremendous asset.

    Probably. That whole "summoning ancient gods" thing doesn't sound like an ability any of us is likely to get. But it's likely that Voss have at least one vampire on their side, otherwise where would all the ghouls come from? And THAT vampire would probably not be averse to summoning Cthulhuoid monstrocities if shit hit the fan.

    so far, this is what the planning came up with

    ---will need at least a couple of Ms(smoke) and Hrs(anti-tank)
    ---main advance is west ward to swing north, one or both of our tanks will wait at the eastern crossing
    ---set up smoke screen to block the other side of the river
    ---draw enemy tanks west then our tank/s cross river on the east
    ---counterbattery the enemy arty with ours, intercept their radio and give false orders, or drop smoke on them with smoke shells

    if we could dictate the starting positions of at least the Hrs and tanks then we could do alot of damage by phase one

    we need to take out the enemy tank west at phase one, probably the enemy arty as well

    enemy knight on the SW corner might be controlling the ghouls there, probably need to take it out before crossing

    intel update

    -- green is the ideal smoke line (basically screening the whole north side) we could either deploy smoke directly on the line or just pop em near our positions and let the wind do the work

    --targets of particular concern are circled, its a good idea to take them out ASAP, preferably at phase 1

    --some prime starting positions for [Hr] squads are also indicated(not sure if we're allowed to choose where we start)

    --tanks are placed near their last known position(not sure if they will be moved at mission start)

    --swimming across the river is not recommended, 1 engineer squad could set up 4 jump pads if needed at phase 1 though I imagine they would have to resupply at an FP after that

    --people should start crossing over by phase 2, west should've been cleared by then(ghouls won't be much of a threat once nearby non ghoul units are taken care of)

    --explosive traps on the areas marked with red Xs, unverified, but it won't hurt to note anyway

    Using your shield makes anyone attacking you from the direction of it's facing take a -2 to their attack. So say your being attacked by a gun with a rating of 4. They'd have to roll under 2 to hit you.
