Message begins:

The tempo of combat operations have decreased in the last week.

Chernarus Defense Forces and Naval Forces have engaged in four separate operations against rebel forces in four regions.

1) An element from 2nd Bn, Chernarus 10th Separate Tank Brigade was sent to northern Hellanmaa Friday morning to recover three intelligence agents being held captive by rebel forces.  The task force was unable to find the agents, and was forced to retreat when the commander was killed. It was later discovered that the agents were never there.

2) Saturday morning, a battlegroup from 3rd Bn Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was sent to Wallbeck in east Werferlingen to clear the town of rebel forces which recently had taken over.  The battle group encountered rebel armor north of Schwanefeld. One enemy BTR-80A has slipped by a cordon setup north of town and destroyed a repair vehicle and a T-72 tank. A relieving tank from Bartleslebel, along with a reinforcing motorized rifle platoon defeated the APC.  The operation to retake Wallbeck was abandoned when the battlegroup commander was killed.

3) Sunday morning, a private special forces group was sent to a location in northern Altis to locate and eliminate rebel commander Ivan Plantanov, and his assistant Danijela Ristic. The mission was a failure when the commander was killed.

4) Sunday evening a task group from 1st Bn Chernarus 17th Separate Light Rifle Brigade was sent to Khuzhadon in Beketov to oversee an evacuation of civilians. A number of complications arose during the operation including expending a large amount of allocated high explosive artillery ammunition, used to destroy rebel patrols along with Treshka River.  A rebel patrol also discovered the trucks to be used in evacuating the civilians and fired on them. Many of the civilians abandoned the truck. The site commander arrived and held the position until the trucks left. Losses were very heavy with 4th, 5th and 6th squads being nearly wiped out.

The tempo of combat operations have decreased substantially, mainly in the area of special operations in the last week.

Chernarus Defense Forces and Naval Forces have engaged in five separate operations against rebel forces in four regions.

1) On Saturday morning in Gunkizli, a battlegroup from 3rd Bn, Chernarus 13th Separate Mountain Motorized Rifle Brigade was sent to clear the town of Goztepe of rebel forces. Casualties were extremely light, but the operation was only partially successful. Only one of three intelligence operatives were recovered, the other two were found dead, presumably from friendly fire.

2) Sunday afternoon in Altis, a task force from 1st Bn Chernarus 43rd Motorized Rifle Brigade was tasked with clearing the town of Alikompos of rebel forces. Losses were extremely heavy with 3rd squad being wiped out in an RPG ambush during the retreat and 2rd squad losing six. Command squad lost two. A repair truck was lost by the same patrol which destroyed 2nd squad. The repair truck did manage to repair a tank which had a damaged turret before it was lost.

3) A Chernarus private special operations contractor group was destroyed Tuesday night in Beketov by enemy action.

4) A task force from 2nd Bn, Chenarus 2nd Separate Naval Infantry Brigade was ordered to take the bridge at 20570,10586, in order to secure it for civilian use Wednesday night. Naval artillery took an early hand in the battle, destroying three rebel technicals and a AA shore gun, but attacks by four T-34/85 tanks and two BRDM scout cars proved too much for the task force.  Mission failed.

5) A battlegroup from 2nd Bn, Chernarus 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade successfully cleared the town Pogorevka of rebel troops Thursday night. Losses were heavy with 2nd squad being nearly wiped out, and command squad losing three to friendly ground interdiction aircraft fire.  The retreat was complicated by attacking rebel infantry which trapped 2nd squad in a position west of town.  Command squad moved to rescue, but ultimately failed, retrieving only two surviving effectives from 2nd squad. 3rd and 4th squad suffered zero losses.

From Chernarus Coastal Operations Group, Dec, 2019





From the Chernarus Coastal Operations Group, Chernarusian Defense Ministry:


The 1st Bn, Chernarus 2nd Separate Naval Infantry Brigade will be withdrawn from operations in northeastern Chernarus.

The brigade has been involved in amphibious operations there since 2017, but now priorities have changed.

The 1st Bn is to be deployed in Virolahti, where the units, in conjunction with the Chernarus Naval Forces ChMSL frigate Sword, the command ship Vesna, and the artillery corvette Marshal Klimenti Voroshilov, will conduct combat operations similar to the ones they have been conducting in northeastern Chernarus since 2017. Its mission remains unchanged: to counter rebel moves and criminal activities in the region.

Combat operations in northeastern Chernarus will be taken over by the Chernarus Defense Forces (CDF) 4th Separate Light Rifle Brigade, near where it has been deployed in Mogilevka in support of combat operations by both naval infantry and army formations, also since 2017.
