OPERATION: CROW’S NEST

FULL MISSION PROFILE

Situation:

As part of a larger joint military operation to push al-Qaeda militants out of a mountainous region in Afghanistan, coalition forces must secure key high observation points.  The attainment of these positions is essential to guide air assets to their proper targets.

Your special operations team has been assigned an observation point code named “Crow’s Nest”, which is currently controlled by an enemy force of about 8 fighters.  You will insert at a time when the enemy forces have consistently been observed taking  a short break to change guards.  It is essential that you take control of that position at all cost.

Objective:

Prior to the change of guard your team will HALO in to a small area just below the observation point. Upon radio confirmation that the enemy forces are linking up to switch over, you will rapidly ascend to the point and take them out.  Because the element of surprise is the only advantage (they will have the high ground), it is essential that your team make the ascent as fast as possible.  Once the point is taken, radio HQ for further orders.

Notes:

Hurry up because when things go bad – they go bad fast.

Push yourself with everything you have on the ascent.

In a walking lunge, keep your chest up, your hands off your thighs, and go all the way down until your knee touches the ground.  Do not bang your knee on the ground.
