[TRANSFERRED FROM THE REPOSITORY : US MARINE MODULE REQUIRED]
Syrian military forces have been reacting to the shaping actions of the US amphibious elements in an un-coordinated manner. Finding their strategic intelligence and communications infrastructure destroyed or compromised, the Syrian military must rely on decentralized execution at the tactical level, which quickly degenerates into un-coordinated defensive operations conducted by local commanders, based upon their skill and level of commitment. Despite this, the universal call to defend Syria and Islam inspires most to fight hard against the overwhelming US firepower and operational tempo. In one regard, the in-ability of the Syrian high command to mass and control their forces, especially the armored Republican Guards units, provided a level of protection against the US war machine by default, causing US forces to have to physically locate the decentralized Syrian forces along the coast, hidden in rough terrain and urban areas. Throughout the MarFor AO, the Syrian military has been able to create local strong points and hide small counterattack forces in order to attrite the impending landing force. The Syrian high command is hopeful that its out-of-contact commanders could seize opportunities and inflict high casualties in order to set the conditions for a counter-assault. Syrian reserve infantry forces have been established in blocking and ambush positions in the vicinity of HAMIDIYAH and BLZ White 2, as the outer layer of the Syrian defensive plan. After the successful insert and operations of the recon teams, BLT 2/6 is prepared to conduct an amphibious assault across BLZ White 2, by both surface means and vertical envelopment. The main effort of Golf Co will land on the beach cleared by the recon teams and push due east. 3rd Plt, Golf Co, is landing 2 kilometers to the north on BLZ White 4 and will be assaulting a separate objective. 2nd Plt, Fox Co will conduct a helo-borne insert just to the north of BLZ White 2, and will attack south in order to support the surface assault by Golf Co (-)(REIN). 2nd Plt’s lead element should arrive in the area shortly after Golf Co lands hits the beach. Echo Co is the MEU reserve. This is a slightly modified version of the scenario from the stock campaign that allows for H2H play. Original Scenario Design by Imperial Grunt.
