So as any epic plan goes, have to write about if it worked or not.
Well, it did in theory work, and process, but over all, not enough people.
AO was down, all cp's were Allied. I formulated a plan to para drop on this town, in the center of three converging points;
The AB to the west
The City cp, to the east
A Cp to the south
The plan was this;
Plane, above 5km , coast in from a grid and half to two grids out. I wanted the para drop to be 1km above city elevation, only SMG/LMG's on mission.
Target: All converge onto City CP first, then Hefty and his two would go to the AB, as me and jkg went to Aarshot-Diest to take that from them.
Reason: To get an AB team camping, while the divergence of taking the Aarshot-Diest CP would capture thier spawnable, and creat a ruckus. The AB would fall, and make it easier to take the remaining 2 cp's. One in the north, one in the south. Typical "Chestbuster" move.
The para drop was done from a high altittude to give time for the para's to turn and drive themselves into position, so that they could have time to manipulate and land saftely on the targeted area. No excuses! The FF is a parachute regiment, and should be able to hit thier mark. We also jumped high so we would gain the upper hand in not setting off EWS on our arrival, rather, we capped the city cp THEN it went off. timming was perfect on this, as we were unresisted in our landing, gathering, and then ei showed up very slowly at first. What hurt us was there wasn't enough people on to make this a great jump, but, I will attribute these facts for the record;
1.) more than a grid out north, climbing high to 5km then cutting the engines to drift into the grid where we were to jump kept us hidden from allied air
2.) the jump at 1km above city elevation, kept us from triggering off EWS
3.) complete suprise, no resitance from ground forces until near the end of the cap
4.) the converging and gathering right away; as soon as boots were on the ground and meters green, we were all in the cp in almost 50 seconds of hitting the ground
5.) everything was explained clearly, everyone had a job, and it was important!
Bad points on this mission:
1.) not enough people in on the mission.
