Post Operation Report
Please find below a detailed operational report of Phase One – Operation 'Rynet';
Brief Overview; Phase One of Operational 'Rynet' consists of the rapid deployment of members of the Aerist Militia to the Kepulauan Islands. There are two infiltration points one of which is the STOL strip to the East of the main island and the second is the abandoned village of 'Keeper's Point' to the south of the smaller island.
Three Aetferian landed on the STOL strip and unloaded two platoons from the commando segment of the Aerist Militia. Following their deployment they hike inland towards the Narco encampments ambushed a convoy that was taking processed coca to their makeshift dock at Smuggler's Haven. The two platoons successfully eliminated both of the hostile APCs and several technicals. Following this they made haste into the jungle until their reached a reasonable view point overlooking the Narco encampment. From which they called in an air-strike that was undertaken by four Garfugol Light Attack Planes. The result of which took out much of the remaining narcos allowing the commandos to effectively clear out the remainder of the town and free the natives whom had been held prisoner for the past few months.
Keeper's Corner; 100 soldiers of the Aerist Militia's Light Infantry element landed successfully with no hindrance. They then moved northwards towards the town of Canaveral, during their journey they made contact with a small patrol of Ocian Mafia who were quickly put down. With the element of surprise lifted the unit made haste towards the town where they were met with overbearing resistance. As the criminal elements made their stand using their 'human produce' as shields, suicide bombers and booby traps. A decision was made by the Captain on the ground to call in urgent air-support. Due to the Garfugol flight already being utilised, the three Aetferian made a pass over Canaveral and dropped several barrels full of various explosives into the main hostile positions.
This enabled the Light Infantry to push hard into the enemy units and begin a sweep of the area to eliminate all remaining criminals. Those that were found following the initial battle were held until later in the day where they were all hung en mass. The intelligence officer attached to the unit stated that following the operation around 130 of the hostages that had been taken by the criminals were still alive albeit in differing states of physical/mental health. Whilst up to 80 had died during the battle, we are currently working with the hostages to help identify their nationalities and send them back to their respective home countries.
Following the hostilities of the previous day the pirate elements of Port Pulau had fortified their positions and blockaded the harbour with their motley crew of attack boats. Aerial photography taken following the SOE intelligence gathering operation had identified a Liquid Gas Petroleum vessel that had been hijacked. Hence in an effort to reduce any combat dead resulting from urban warfare, the Garfugol flight was ordered to fire one guided missile into the hijacked vessel. The result of which caused a major explosion which practically leveled the entire settlement and incinerated all the pirates whom had barricaded themselves within it. The Aerist commandos now reinforced by Light Infantry made a quick sweep of the area and found few hostiles still alive.
We can say that this Operation has been completed to a successful outcome with only 12 Martyrs and 24 wounded. Whilst those that opposed us have been effectively wipe out from the face of Micras. Due to the inherent devastation of Port Pulau engineering contractors from Port Impregnable and Lighthouse have been shipped in to begin the demolition of unsafe structures and the rebuilding of the town so that it can act as the administrative town for the islands.
It is expected that we will be able to begin shipping Tier 3 families to the island within the next few days. Whilst Tier 2 families will be expected to arrive within the next couple of months once sufficient levels of infrastructure and housing become available.
If the house should require any further detailed information I will of course be honoured to provide it.
