Hook Presents: “Kosovo in Konflikt” – FRY’D Part III

In the finale to the three part FRY’D Series, BKS will see the perspective of the losing side. FRY forces can no longer hold on to Koshare, so a desperate evacuation has been ordered. BKS pilots must work against the clock to buy retreating FRY forces enough time to make a clean break from the ruined city.

INTRODUCTION
It’s May, 1999. The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia strains against the steady pressure of NATO backed incursion into Kosovo. As the NATO air bombing campaign comes to a close, FRY forces lash out in a desperate attempt to hang on to crucial territory in spite of growing KLA insurgency, backed by the mighty of the US Military. This Monday BKS Pilots will participate in the final stages of the battle of Koshare. Last week FRY pilots coordinated to destroy key KLA armor positions, and halt KLA supply columns, however the short handed and outgunned FRY Air Force can no longer shore up the losing battle in the streets of Koshare. Command has ordered a retreat, and FRY pilots are to support KLA forces as they fully abandon their positions in the city.  

KLA forces are mounting a combined armor and infantry offensive to seize the southern side of the city, at which time they will most likely attempt to cross the river dividing the city. A significant amount of FRY forces remain engaged in heavy fighting on the south side of the river, and are in need of immediate CAS. Pilots will attempt to hold off KLA advances from the west and east sides of the city, while FRY forces attempt to reorganize and begin retreat to the northern side of Koshare. FRY forces must control the bridge crossing the river during the retreat, and the hospital south of that same bridge (currently a causality collection point) until FRY forces have egressed, or for as long as possible. Worst case, FRY forces will need cover for a retreat across the river, followed by destruction of the bridge and of course the hospital (we are FRY after all…)

Pilots may choose from any of the listed available airframes, but remember once that air frame is gone it cannot be used again. L-39ZAs, C-101CCs, MiG 21s & 29s will focus on direct support of FRY helicopters during air assault activity. SA-342s will take on KLA armor, and MI-8s will provide troop transport to assist in the retreat and air assault support. Rotary will pilots must be prepared to insert and extract troops from HOT LZs. 

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: SUPPORT FRY GROUND FORCES IN THEIR EFFORT TO KEEP CONTROL OF KOSHARE.

 

BRIEFING & AIR TASKING

REDFOR (L-39ZA, C-101CC, SA342, MI-8, MIG 21, MIG 29)

  • TWO MI-8s REQUIRED. NO OTHER ROLE RESTRICTIONS.
  • CAS. Migs will provide ground attack. L-39ZA and C-101CC will provide light attack, recon and AFAC duties, as well as spot for arty. 
  • Locations: Koshare FARP, local airfields. 
  • Armament: Pilot’s discretion. Be prepared to fly CAS in fixed wing. Rotary wing should be prepared for light attack, recon, and troop transport duties.
  • GCI will be available to all airborne assets.
  • LIMITED RESPAWN BASED ON SLOTS AVAILABLE FOR EACH AIRFRAME!

Threats:

REDFOR: NATO has general air superiority. All fixed wing assets operate under close GCI control, due to the value of each asset. Rotary wing flights generally remain undetected. KLA and Albanian ground forces have MANPADs, AAA, small arms, and armored vehicles of various types. Use extreme caution, preservation of air assets is our highest priority.
