US/Iran are at war.  The US and allies have seized most facilities on the coast and are meeting heavy resistance as Iranian assets have pulled back and reinforced themselves.

Iran is moving a substantial amount of armor South toward Qeshm Island, where we are based.  We believe that the armor force will be substantial, likely 5-6 companies of T-72 tanks. They are preceded by BMP-3's which are operating as forward scouts, and are moving quickly through key valleys and passes.  

US armor assets are limited, but have been deployed North of the Island as a blocking force.    

Mission goals:

Stop all enemy armor from arriving at a position where it can fire at US armor or create a position that can be used to threaten Qeshm Island.

Our counterattack plan:   

1 - Deploy US Mortar teams as forward as possible, to slow down or stop the recon element  (UH).  

2 - Deploy 342M helicopters to attack, and eliminate the recon element once the mortar teams stop them (OH).

3 - Attack the main armor formation (AH), and reduce their numbers substantially in case they do manage to reach engagement range of US armor assets.  

What to expect in terms of planning:

1 - An AMR (Air mission request) will be provided, and will contain key locations.

2 - Intel.  Maps, and likely routes of the Iranian forces.

3 - Location of all friendly assets, and target locations of mortar team deployments.

A thorough briefing document will NOT be provided.  If you want one, the team will have to work together to create this.

I will reach out to platoon leaders to ascertain flight leads.
