Ones up on a time there where some lost Abrams from the Iraq army. Not anymore.
ISIS in now parading them in full daylight in the only enclave they have left. Now US want them gone and want us to stretch our legs. Buckle up because this is going to be a long strike mission.

2 MISSION

The US high command want us to destroy the capture ABRAMS, and as we then are in the area recapture At Tanf so we can use the base for future missions. When Israel heard we’re planning an operation they to have a request. They want us to destroy an EWR that’s been placed on a mountaintop close to the northern part of Israel. As a side show they also want us to level the Syrian FOB located nearby. We have been authorized to reduce any SA threat in the area to be able to execute our mission the safest way.

EXECUTION

3.1 Commander’s intent

CAP groups to establish security to our other groups. STRIKE groups to destroy the six captured ABRAMS currently parked outside the town of Deir Ec-Zor. SEAD groups to cut a corridor in the Syrian defense for a shorter return home. AH-64 groups to recapture At Tanf. Finally, it’s the A-10s and AJS37s mission to takeout the EWR Syria have placed close to the Israeli border with its nearby FOB.
