MODUS OPERANDI

Post by vinni » 07 Mar 2016, 14:36

We will be operating quite differently than what we are used to this year.
Basically, we're scrapping the idea of companies on the battlefield. We'll still use something of the sorts to get the administration done, but at game start it'll be one big pool of platoons.

This big pool of platoons will be assigned to Task Force Commanders (TFCs) depending on missions. If a mission near the enemy base requires 5 Inf platoons, 2 Mech platoons and a Shadows platoon, they will be assigned to the respective TFC. Smaller missions will then be staffed accordingly with the correct number of forces.
This will allow us to be more dynamic on the battlefield without risking under- or over-manning certain missions by letting ourselves getting stuck in a rigid structure of companies over platoons. As an added bonus, each task force will be a joint operation of mech, infantry, and shadows when needed, without any communication gaps going through the company and battalion hierarchy.

Furthermore, our enemy does not expect this.
Sun Tzu wrote:If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
And so on and yada yada.
Basically, if NAF doesn't know our structure, they'll be having a harder time adapting to it. Maintain OPSEC and let's keep it that way.

These Task Forces will be colour coded, any colour is possible except for blue or red (obviously) although we probably won't go with Task Force Pink any time soon.

This allows the callsigns to be adapted to the TF colour designation.

By example:
Two task forces, TF Black and TF Orange are operating close to each other.
TF Black and Orange commanders would respectively be callsigns BLACK 0 and ORANGE 0.
Their first platoon's callsigns would be BLACK 1 and ORANGE 1, and so on.

Which platoon is first platoon, which one ssecond, etc, is the decision of the TFC. In the organisation chart the platoons will be sorted alphabetically, this is their fixed designation. Any number given to the platoon will be temporary for the time they are a member of that specific TF for that specific mission.
