    “Persian Gauntlet” Turn 10
    With Greater Tunb now occupied and under the control of the 31st MEU, there is little time to lick the wounds suffered. With an Iranian response almost certain, the focus now is to buildup a FOB on the island, and secure the neighboring island of Lesser Tunb. Complicating the equation is the discovery that FORECON teams Alpha & Bravo were captured alive and are being held on Lesser Tunb. A rescue op will need to precede any assault on the island...

    “Persian Gauntlet” Turn 9
    Awash in a green glow under the pre-dawn twilight,  the well deck of the LHD USS Wasp is slowly exposed as the massive stern ramp lowers into the swells. The relative calm is soon interrupted by the loud sound of the massive Landing Craft Air Cushion coming to life. One after another in procession, the LCACs exit the stern of the boat and sail toward land, their sea spray clouds fading away into the distance. D-Day has arrived...

    “Persian Gauntlet” Turn 8
    Abu Musa and the Tunb Islands are 3 of the most strategic pieces of land within the Persian Gulf. A fact Iran was well aware of when they unlawfully seized them back in 1971. Now, their significance is once again thrust into the limelight, as COMPHIBRON11 initiates a bold plan to mount an amphibious assault on the islands.  If executed well, the plan will result in a FOB along the Western shipping lanes into the Strait, from where the Marines can begin to envelop the Strait in a pincer maneuver.

    This morning's ISR photo pass on the Tunb Islands has revealed increased activity by Iranian forces over the past 24 hours, consistent with defensive reinforcement of the islands by SHORAD and ASM batteries. Mine laying activity also appears to be originating from these islands.  Air strikes have been ordered.

  • Floundog Presents:<br>“NVG Checkride” Floundog Presents:
    “NVG Checkride”
    Separatists in the remote mountainous industrial hamlet of Cheyenadova have succeeded in manufacturing a new bio-weapon that can kill on contact and be dispersed via airborne attack.  Intelligence indicates deployment is imminent, so under the cover of darkness, in adverse weather, the Black Knights will sortie their AV-8B Harriers from a nearby allied airbase to destroy the threat before it can be used against the host nation's facilities.

    “Persian Gauntlet” Turn 6
    With the Theater Entry operation underway, additional strikes are needed to secure some breathing room for the Wasp ESG to maneuver into the SoH. Small Ports on Larak and Qeshm Islands used by the IRGCN as bases for their Patrol and Fast Attack Boats will be targeted.  These islands lie under the Bandar Abbas SAM umbrella, so a low altitude night strike is on tap.  CASE III recoveries are in effect.

Air operations within the Strike group swing into high gear as rotary and fixed wing assets move to secure USS Bainbridge and MEDEVAC casualties, while MH-53 launch from the USS Ponce to initiate Airborne Mine Countermeasures.
