STANDARD CTB REPO
INQUISITORS takes place in the fictional area of VT5. For the purposes of this mission, it is somewhere in Eastern Europe. NATO troops are in open conflict with insurgent separatists in the region. 24 hours ago, an Osprey (on a return flight from inserting Special Forces troops) was shot down by insurgent forces approximately 100km’s from BLUFOR positions. A distress beacon was activated by the pilot following the crash. Intel has ascertained that the pilot has been picked up by insurgent forces and taken to a nearby facility. We, as USMC Force Recon, have been tasked with the location and extraction of the pilot “RAMIREZ”. Civilians are active in the area and casualties should be kept to a minimum. AI A-10A “THUNDERBIRD” is on station to assist, pending AA.

OPERATION LONG OCTOBER
MISSION ONE - EARLY APR 2015, 8PM QLD TIME
News Report Excerpt - September 14th, 2015.
[...]There are believed to be hundreds of foreigners—from Syria, Afghanistan and other middle-eastern areas—engaged in Isla Duala as private soldiers or jihadists. It is unclear whether they are taking active roles in the fighting between Molatia and Boko Haram, as several reports say, or providing training and technical support for foreign-bought weapons, as the Dualan government claims. Soviet-made armoured vehicles have been sighted in and around the key cities on the island.
News Report - September 20th, 2015.
NDJAMENA, Chad — Deep in the Sahara, late at night, a Reaper drone silently tracked a six-vehicle convoy crossing the desert into Niger from Libya. Minutes later, French attack planes and helicopter gunships swooped down on the convoy of Qaeda-backed fighters, turning the militant caravan into smoldering wreckage.

Mission One (WIP)
- Enemy Forces
Ground troops and wheeled or tracked vehicles of ex-Soviet decent belonging to or sympathizing with Boko Haram and potentially Al Qaeda. Unlikely to make contact with Al Qaeda militia. Possibility for encountering armed civilians. Reports suggest mercenaries are active in the area.
- Composition, Strength
Intel suggests that there are approx. 200 men in immediate area. Believed that approx 100 of those are armed. Most civilians have fled the area, or have taken up arms. Mainly centered around buildings, cross roads, fuel depots, airfields, military camps.
- Enemy Capabilities
Anti-aircraft launchers, anti-tank launchers, small arms, long-range rifles. Use of armed technicals with machine guns. Dug-in machine guns. Enemy may be able to rapidly deploy with use of wheeled or tracked vehicles. Mortars and IEDs are expected.
- Enemy Limitations
Believed that enemy has access to mainly ex-Soviet bloc vehicles and weaponry. Enemy is believed to have access to only short-range communications. Poorly trained soldiers.
- Enemy Most Likely Course of Action
Enemy will likely set up road blocks and prepare ambushes, as well as strengthen tactical points of interest. Enemy will likely fortify airfield and nearby town(s).
- Friendly Forces
Afrenian (Pro-France Government) troops are present, however mostly dissipated and unlikely to assist.
- Nearby Units
French and American combined fleet off coast of Duala. French and American attack, logistic, transport vehicles and helicopters at disposal.
Logistical support will be available via helicopter(s). Attack aircraft are available. MEDEVAC is available. Units, if dead, will respawn at Castle Base.
BLUFOR – France, United States, Afrenian Government
OPFOR – Molatia, Mercenaries
INDFOR - Boko Haram, Al Qaeda, Mercenaries
CIV – Local Civilians
Perform reconnaissance at airfield, and attack/secure if possible.
Early October, 2015 (In-game time) – April 2015 (real time).
Fictional Republic of Duala (just off coast of North Africa).
To provide support for embattled post-colonial Dualan (Afrenian) government. Assist in global counter-insurgency. Assist in conflict against Boko Haram and Al Qaeda.
- Concept of Operation
The mission should take approximately two hours. We, as French soldiers, will spawn with no gear. Gearing up will take place at base, while commander informs team leaders of mission execution flow. Team-wide briefing will take place, followed by movement to identified waypoints. The river will be crossed into enemy territory, and we will move with stealth and speed to an overwatch position on the airfield to perform reconnaissance. If the airfield is deemed possible to assault, we will do so. If it is too heavily guarded, we will neutralise any enemy assets possible, and conduct seek and destroy operations against the enemy. Once enemy operations have been severly hampered or disabled, either team will return to base or fortify position at the airfield.
1. Cross into enemy territory (across river).
2. Perform reconnaissance on airfield.
3. Assault airfield if possible / Seek and destroy enemy assets so as to disable airfield.
4. Destroy any enemy anti-aircraft capability.
5. Fortify airfield / Return to Castle Base
