CWR2 ITA - Desert Strike

by

Description:
First mission of ITA DLC troops after the Malden island crisis.

Operation Shapur Mansu Thunder:
In response of alleged increasing cross-border activities by our national oil company, the Takistani autorithies closed definitively the border at the end of November 1985, then since the first days of December, troops movements supported by APCs and light tanks were observed close the area.
The night of 5th December Shapur e-Dalanper border guards informed ANA HQ of large units of TA (Takistani Army)' 191st Division (17th mechanised Rgt.) moving towards the border station and the oil rig site 10 miles inside Shapur territory in the Shapur Mansu area, the border guards were ordered to abandon their position and do not open fire to the Takistani troops.
The following days were characterised by intense but fruitless diplomatic actions between the british government and Takmir, Takistani authorities declare that now thanks to the Takistani military presence the disputed area is clear of illegal and potentially terrorist activities, but during a NATO summit both british prime minister Mrs M.Tatcher and his italian colleague wants the Takistani out of the Shapur corridor soon, and mobilised two elite units of their respective armies (2Para and the Folgore Bde), among these are elements of 187th Para Rgt (mechanised) and 9th Paracommando Rgt from the italians, while british have deployed the entire 2-Para Rgt with full support units and air assets.
The mission is rather articulated, Italian troops lead by player have to launch a dawn surprise attack against the Takistani troops that occupy the oil rig in the Tegger Mansu area and push out the entire Takistani military presence from the Shapur corridor.
The disparity in forces is more than evident, Takistani troops are equipped with state of the art weapons and vehicles, they have the best of everything supplied recently by the soviets that want to keep them as reliable allies, while italian troops are equipped and armed with 1970s era weapons and equipment.
The Takistani are rather well trained but are less disciplined and organised, they lack of battle experience, in fact they have been involved only in minor clashes and border accidents with minor countries and guerrillas, where they performed in a 'not particularly brilliant' manner.
Instead italian soldiers deployed here are well trained ay high NATO standards and forged to war during the last months, italian soldiers fight well always against a stronger and well armed enemy, if they are well motivated disciplined and trained by top officers and NCOs.
