    WEST ENGELL REPUBLIC
    COMBINED ARMED FORCES

    PLANNING PROPOSALS
    FOR BOURGOGNE MISSION

    TO DOMAIN ALLIES

    BEAUTANCUS - CLARENTHIA - FIRST REPUBLIC

    The Combined Armed Forces of the West Engell Republic are committed to not only accomplishing Domain initiatives, but facilitating them to ease the load for our Thaumantic Allies. We were not the tip of the spear for the ongoing Burgundian conflict, and we cannot at this time apply frontline efforts, yet we can contribute to the larger mission of placing conventional forces on the continent with the equipment and sustained training direction they need.


    We envision that merchant marines and chartered civilian transport vessels can apply heavy military hardware, while privately chartered aircraft can focus ground troops at jump off points in the First Republic where they can be assigned to military aerial transport schemes or rapid maritime sprints.

    It is imperative that the leadership and command of this unnamed operation set clear rules of engagement and mission parameters for rear arriving standard military units. We predict that local national opposing forces will present themselves at first as uniformed combatants, and very soon after if not already so: partisans and irregulars indistinguishable from civilians. This will present our conventional forces with dynamic threat levels unconventional to static line symmetrical warfare we have trained for against larger powers and their identifiable patterns.

    We advise that on a company level that French speaking soldiers are identified or brought to sufficient ability to act as temporary interpreters, that ground troops are given translation booklets constructed to give troops the ability to gather basic information from the local population. Eventually each company should be assigned an official proficient interpreter where necessary to achieve no loss in critical translation. We can assume from data that much of the region is at least familiar with Engellsh, but we must be capable of speaking to local leaders as they are found, elected, or installed in their native tongue.

    Lists of persons of interest should be compiled for our troops and mercenaries to find and capture if necessary. Our combined intelligence groups must also begin identifying potential local collaborators willing to work towards order by our definition. We must expect moles, saboteurs, and all manner of agents from around the world working against our interests. Legal frameworks and guidelines should be provided among Domain groups to ensure agencies are operating to and not beyond what is permitted by higher authorities.

    Finally we are proposing that the “Domain Battle Platform” is fully employed by land and air vehicles with satellite link to prevent blue on green accidents between Combined Domain Forces. This platform should be installed in every motor vehicle, with as much albeit rushed training for truck commanders and intelligence units so that they may draft battle plans on the move and maintain a third medium of communication beyond convention radio signals and runners. The DBF will give us organizational and ultimately tactical superiority over regular or irregular forces if deployed and utilized correctly. For that reason we are forward deploying contractors to brief unfamiliar troops and command groups with the basic outline of DBF usage.

    Concerning the Rules of Engagement on the ground with contested Neustrian populations and property. As more and more troops from the Engellachian Frontier reach the Continent we cannot guarantee controlled discipline of our historically underfunded, unruly armed forces. After Engellkind's Civil War and in our World's War, the Engellachian Army and partisan forces developed an unfortunate tradition of green-on-green violence, with the only outlet being illicit engagement with the inhabitants they are stationed with. We therefore predict an out break of "libertine liberation" as an inevitably if clear rules are not set by Dominion Authorities.

    To that end, we also insist that our Cussian partners leverage their contacts in the Kadiki Union to nip the problem of unset borders and partisan violence in the bud before it blossoms into conflagration. We have orders on high from Dictator Heydendahl to follow your guidance, but should we find no agreement between Cussian and Kadiki, we are now preparing to engage the People's Republic partisan force in a propaganda and dynamic fourth-generation conflict that blurs the lines of uniform and precedence that Beautancus and Kadikistan provide this rump state.

    DESIRES to CONFER WITH DOMAIN ALLIES


    The West Engell Combined Armed Forces wish to petition Domain allies to alter Operation Domain of Democracy or O-DoD orders that assign peacekeeping duties to Treatyfolk assets in Ouistreham cantonment currently being developed.

    General Kentigern Hayes, who was among the first on the ground in combat on the night of the invasion, advises that the Engellachian Expedition can continue to present superb Domain presence in Ouistreham by honing developed local national contacts, maintaining and re-opening arteries from port, and improving a right seat left seat training relationship with city police and guard. Pulling out from these sprouting relationships and replacing CAF assets with alternative actors would objectively damage HUMINT relations on the ground, jeopardizing built-up trust and potentially turning some to arms with the insurgency.

    We are currently surveying sites for troop and equipment relay points to and from the front. The CAF is acutely aware of the current state of Domain Allies cramped together in the historic city, and can assure that most if not all Engellachian troops will proceed with primary elements while the 1st Revolutionary Army Division remains in place to continue what they have started across several warfare disciplines.

    Our forces do fall under command of Domain leadership, chiefly the Cussian command staff leading O-DoD. So while we will continue to develop our multifaceted urban operation, General Hayes has been ordered to prepare for significant troop movement and to await orders from Domain Allies to apply the CAF to future missions beyond the city.

    Northern Constituent Republics,
    Engellexian Republic


    It would be inexcusably unseemly to commit these orders and personal impressions to paper or digital encryption without first proffering an acknowledgement of the high regard in which the Engellachian forces engaged in Operation: Domain of Democracy are now held by their Cussian comrades, and by myself personally. There is, and can never again be any doubting the respect the fighting men of Westernesse's most Northern Kindred have earned with their aggressive prosecution of operational objectives as well as their ferocity and tenacity in the face of determined opposition by the foe.

    The necessity of convening a war council to best coordinate the next phases of operations in Western and Central Burgundy is apparent, but the vital necessity of denying the foe any opportunity to seize the initiative in this contest outweigh all other present concerns.

    The arrival of those elements of the 1st, Thaumantic, Fleet of the Navy of the Confederated Republic assigned to the theater, in conjunction with the commitment of substantial peacekeeping forces by our Treatyfolk kindred offer an exponential multiplication of both raw fire power and tactical flexibility that all Domain Armed Forces currently engaging the foe should and are henceforth ordered to make best use of.

    With rapid resupply now possible throughout most of Ouistreham, appropriately robust communications devices - squad and command level radios and integrated/slaved smartslates - are already and will continue to be disseminated amongst the Engellachian component of Domain forces in this theater.

    Materiel recovery and distribution quotas have been recalculated upon analysis and review of Engellachian Ground Forces operational effectiveness and combat performance in Ouistreham, with a projected increase of 87.524% in volume/projected increase in potential combat effectiveness of 115.89%.

    General Hayes recommendations are approved, with my compliments. There is to be no delay in commencing probing actions against those positions (designated in attachment L15), with all expectation of the presence significant concentrations of enemy forces. Furthermore,
    General Hayes is advised that the 6th Marine Aircraft Wing
    "Marauders" and 15th Marine Aircraft Wing "Reavers" have been designated and are currently being concentrated to act as primary fire support and aerial reconnaissance for the Engellachian sectors of operations in this phase of ODoD.

    With my regards, for the sake of Liberty and the future of Civilization, and all assurances that Welmonton shares the opinion of those Cussian forces in Burgundy - regarding General Hayes most of all.

    General Kentigern Hayes
    Combined Armed Forces of the West Engell Republic
    Vesper, Engellachia

    Dear Generals Preston and Hayes,

    The Commonwealth Defense Forces of the Treaty Lands, operating within full cooperation of the United Thaumantic Operational Command in order to best serve the interests of the Domain in the liberation of the peoples of Bourgogne, wishes to commend in no uncertain terms the incredible contributions of the Combined Armed Forces of the West Engell Republic. The foundations they have laid here are critical to a successful restoration of the country.


    The Treaty Lands unequivocally agrees with General Preston that the need of a war council to best coordinate the next phases of the war and ensuring a quick and expedient conclusion is a necessity. Until such a time, the Treatyfolk intend to maintain the ground liberated by the Domain and ensure the support of Domain Forces in their entirety. Of a particular note, the current orders of deployment alleviate certain political pressures on the Government of Treaty Lands, enabling our country to commit more resources and prove to be a more effective ally in our campaign.

    Our campaign will focus on repairing and revitalizing the infrastructure of Ouistreham to not only improve the quality of life of those already liberated; but to further the needs of Domain Forces to further enhance our ability to conduct war. Should it be deemed most necessary, we are of course willing to work jointly with the Combined Forces of the West Engell Republic in order to repair social norms and rebuild a sense of normalcy.

    In addition to fulfilling our primary mission, the Treaty Lands will continue to deploy forces to the front lines to aid those engaged with the enemy. While our own resources are limited, we will follow the discretion of the united command and conduct ourselves appropriately.

    Together, then, we can assure victory.

    Signed,

    General Alistair J. Haywoode
    Commonwealth Defense Forces

    BURCOM -
    Naval Support Facility Revsec,
    Northern Constituent Republics,
    Engellexian Republic


    TO: General Kentigern Hayes, CO 1C3/CAF; General Alistair J. Haywoode, 44ExCom/CDF; General Cornelius Bridger, 3MTEC/NMC
    CC: General Lawrence Colleton, UTOC/L4N @ Hammer Bay; 1st Combined Combat Corps Command; 44th Army Expeditionary Command; 3rd Naval Marine Corps Thaumantic Expeditionary Command


    It is the assessment of BURCOM ACTUAL that the case presented by this snarl of communications between BURCOM, CDF and CAF in this case further underline the driving necessity for immediate implementation of a uniform and unified command, control and communications network and systems between and common to
    all elements, formations and units of the Armed Forces of the League of Four Nations in theater at present, regardless of their national origin or present national governmental policy.

    The concerns of bureaucrats - whether they be focused on penance and recompense, civility and humane conduct of our forces as the obviously superior bearers of the tradition of True Civilization, or the ultimate and unmistakably successful resolution of this conflict - are being disregarded in this instance per direct order from the Great Bureaucrat himself, DEFSEC Albrecht.

    The maximum achievable combat efficacy of the League Forces engaged in the Joint-Intervention in W. Burgundy is in largely and in part dependent upon the immediate and successful implementation of this system.
    The honor, image and Joint-Destiny of our Race is being decided in these days, and we will not fail in the exercise of our duties and obligations to that Destiny for lack of a few radios.

    The 39th Marine Rifles, NMC, have and will continue to serve as the "communications nexus" for all forces present in W. Burgundy, with immediate coordination available between the 39th and all air and heavy/long-range support assets currently tasked to ODoD. Those forces of the CAF equipped for and tasked with similar and/or identical operational objectives and roles will be joining the 39th to expand and fortify the Domain's communications, electronic warfare & electronic countermeasures capabilities and systems and information-flow capabilities in-theater.

    General Haywoode and those forces included in the preliminary/immediate contribution of our Treatyfolk kindred to the cause of ODoD have been designated as "most suitable" for maintaining the ground liberated by the Domain previously engaged in combat operations in-theater; ensuring optimized logistical and materiel support of Domain Forces in-theater; repairing and revitalizing the infrastructure of Ouistreham to not only improve the quality of life of those already liberated but to ensure its compatibility with the rest of the Domain.

    It is important that those worthy of remaining in the West Burgundy - by whatever name that itself may bear - are able to see and appreciate the benefits of Thaumantic Civilization, especially in comparison to the relatively outdated opportunities they previously enjoyed.

    General Hayes and those most tenacious and valiant fighting men of the Engellachian CAF have, through their conduct in those operations responsible for the liberation of Ouistreham, proven themselves to be among, if not the finest light infantry and irregular fighters in the world. It is the opinion of BURCOM @Revsec and UTOC @Hammer Bay that the Engellachian unit assetd forming the spearhead of Domain Forces in UDoD will be best utilized as they are currently engaged - mercilessly harrying the foe and ever driving forward the cause of Engellkin Liberty at its very vanguard.

    As previously noted, suitable communications equipment and materiel resupply has been allotted to the 1C3, with the expectation that the already inestimable combat effectiveness of General Hayes forces will be redoubled.

    Command of those ground forces of the Armed Forces of the Confederated Republic currently engaged in combat operations in W. Burgundy has been officially awarded to General C. Bridger, architect of Operation: Underdark. Generals Bridger and Hayes have shown a propensity for working well together, and will continue to do so.

    Ouistreham might be firmly in our hands now gentleman, but there remains much work left to do before anyone can rest on their laurels - or rest easily over the security afforded to the newest citizens of the Domain in former-Neustria.

    It should again be reiterated that Generals Bridger, Hayes and Haywoode shall make themselves available for consultation on overall strategy in-theater at the most immediate possible convenience. Generals Bridger and Hayes are at the front, overseeing a critical phase of engagements with and interdiction of the foe's forces - as they are mid-redeployment in the wake of the Battle of Ouistreham, and as such BURCOM can and will grant allowance as and where needed in this case.


    Hail Liberty, Hail the League of Four Nations and Hail the Thaumantic Domain!

    Please isolate and review this broadcast:

    http://www.europe-game.eu/index.php?threads/radio-socialist-gallia.13743/

    Applied efforts from Domain communications warfare experts can easily utilize interdiction technology to determine the signal location and wavelengths of “Radio Socialist Gallia”. We strongly recommend this mission to quickly identify fountains of in-country resistance, or the possibility of pipelines of money, technology, and propaganda efforts by covert state actors likewise alien to the place of battle.

    If Radio Socialist Gallia’s broadcast location can be found, we recommend investing a Thaumantic Civil Service detail to monitor and potentially infiltrate, sabotage, or recruit periphery ground actors who may truly believe in their cause of resistance. In-country actors may be vulnerable to in-fighting as was most common prior to the arrival of Domain Allies; if we can rekindle these conflicts between Burgundian insurgent groups, we can break apart the brittle union forming against us in the “BPR”.

    In the case of RSG being the mouthpiece of an alien state actor, immediate destruction and replacement is our recommendation, though it may be within the operational capability of our allies to capture these radio operators to interrogate or use as collateral against their place of origin.

    Finally we stress that it is imperative that we do not permit any coherent united ideological front to foment and form east beyond the battlefront. We must furthermore consider operations to undermine organization and alliance of nation states farther east who may consider propping up the Pilau Rebellion to resist our liberation effort.

    To Whom it May Concern,

    "Radio Socialist Gallia" has been detected and is currently under the investigation of the Commonwealth Defense Forces. Undoubtedly, the effort of the Domain's forces combined will have no difficulty discovering the source of the broadcast.

    Pending the order from General Preston, I agree with the assessment of the Combined Armed Forces of the West Engell Republic that it is far more valuable - at present - to infiltrate RSG in order to discover a wider network of those sympathetic to its cause. The potential to gain valuable information from RSG's operations could prove critical to successfully eliminating covert enemy operations resisting the liberation of Bourgogne.

    In further agreement, should the source be determined to be that of a different state then it must be destroyed immediately and assessments made as to any sort of counter offensive. Should the operators of the station be captured, this could prove of value however the Treaty Lands do not feel particularly moved that their capture is essential.

    At any rate, the radio does not seem to have any sort of compromising information on Domain activities, which leads us to - for now - operate under a weak assumption that the radio is not propped up, in any significant matter, by a competitor power.

    Undoubtedly, further investigation is needed.

    Signed,

    Recommended course of action approved. Suggest asset selected for this infiltration be classed as fully capable of terminating the sites effective operation, with extreme prejudice, per compartmentalization of the organization in question. If there is no intel of particular value or note, it may prove to be more effective to force the backers to consider alternatives - wherein they might be a bit sloppier.

    The Thaumantic Alignment Committee in Vesper has directed our forces to communicate their intent to set parameters for the Engellachian advance:

    “Going forward the public frame of Operation Domain of Democracy will be that of a mission to uphold and protect Neustrian Independence. The Combined Armed Forces should continue to take orders and directives from Domain allies, but we must re-iterate our strategic preference to focus on Neustrian territories and populations.

    It is entirely necessary to neuter East Burgundian militants as effectively as we can, and further leave a scarring memory for the continent and wider world of what our alliance is capable of in minimal time frames. We are therefore not asking or reaching out for peace talks independently at this time, but will publicly express a willingness for dialogue for optical reasons.

    Without serious mobilization and deployment from our First Republic Allies the Thaumantic Alignment Committee does not believe a prolonged or wider war would serve to strengthen the gains we have and will make in near terms. Again, publicly this government will hold the line and engage foreign detractors at the source at every possible juncture, but internally we must begin setting private parameters to achieve and maintain victory.”

    General Preston, General Hayes,

    In response to the concerns raised by the Engellachian TAC, it has been relayed to myself through Palmerton that the Commonwealth concurs with the West Engell Republic.


    The outrage the world had at the intervention of the Domain in the war that the eastern militants launched against Neustria was certainly not shared at the initial invasion by communist forces of Neustria. While there will always remain criticsm and aggression toward Domain activities, it is nevertheless a critical component to the war efforts that our intents be made clear and that our mission has an objective end.

    We can debate the importance of public perception, I am sure. However, it brings no benefit for the Neustrians nor the powers of Gallo-Germanic to see the Thaumantic Domain as nothing more than belligerent invaders who are seeking to spread our culture across the globe.

    Normalizing the Republic of Neustria as a free, independent country and phrasing Domain activities as a pursuit of that coutnry’s freedom, in the opinion of the Treatyfolk, is a necessity in order to continue an effective war.

    Signed,
    General Alistair J. Haywoode

    I think it would be beyond the point of argument that BURCOM is not, or has not long been frustrated with the situation we have all been placed in as a result of the actions undertaken by the First Republic.

    The First Republic has not been in the streets with us, bleeding and fighting, it has not raised a mighty shout to the world in proclamation of the essential rightness of this struggle against anarchy and barbarism.

    The Confederated Republic has, however, and it is here. It is no secret to any involved that Welmonton has taken a leading role in the formation of the League, or in its leadership. As fighting men, we can each of us understand why.

    I will likewise note that the often Pelasgically labyrinthine nature of the politics of the First Republic leave something to be desired, neither have they openly abandoned us. We each know the truth of the conspiracy growing against us - and know that it was in truth already growing. Do not despair that the Domain will have some striking power in reserve for when we need it most - which is not the present.

    Politicians get cold feet, and are scared to lose things they assume they might one day have. Like peace and an understanding of equality and fairness with the Fictional Order of the Old World. We are not those halfhearted men.

    The Confederated Republic concurs that the stabilization of a free and Domain aligned West Burgundian Republic is the primary goal of ODoD. We should none of us forget that this campaign was undertaken as a result of the aggression against the former Neustria, by their former Burgundian countrymen. If the successful liberation and long term survival of a West Burgundian Republic is to be ensured, any and all direct and immediate threats must be prosecuted unto their utter annihilation. We are not Fictionals, to conduct affairs in half measures.

    Now is not the time for disunity. The very purpose of the Thaumantic Alignment Committees is to discuss these matters, and to seek a means for their resolution - not as a means of leverage or hastily terminating the greatest achievement of our Civilization. And for what would we do so, in any case?

    The First Republic will come around. You have the word of BURCOM, and the Confederated Republic. Or is it that the word of the Confederated Republic no longer means something to its kindred? We are not descended from meek and easily cowed men, and nor are we such ourselves. Remember this, honored comrades, for the promise of the future the Domain can only build together.

    We speak on behalf of all fellow Thaumanticans to extend deep condolences to our Treatyfolk kindred who, beside Engellachian and Cussian rear detachments, experienced indiscriminate and engulfing firebombing in Ouistreham. The thousands dead will be remembered at the top of the Thaumantic eternally, their names etched in stone on monuments, written into books and circulated through all libraries, and lodged online for future generations to reference digitally.

    Our Burgundian enemies have stooped to the precedent set by Serazine brutality dished out to the Occitan. Total war is once again in effect on the Gallo-Germanian continent, and we as Thaumanticans must engage our foes duly upon the Thaumantican Horizon with unrelenting courage. We will continue to hail our allies and kindred from the First Republic to join this pivotal conflict for our League and the Thaumantic legacy as a whole.

    The CAF shall commit to nipping at the heels of the Burgundian retreat made possible by not only our efforts, but mainly Cussian prowess in all spheres of military command. We believe that Domain allies must double down on its advance into the Burgundian heartland without refrain, exacting justice due to the BPR cowards who dare not meet us squarely on the field of battle to settle this conflict once and for all.

    Addendum - Additional Deployment

    The DEPARTMENT of DEFENSE
    of the
    OFFICE for the ADMINISTRATION of GOVERNMENT
    of the
    CONFEDERATED REPUBLIC of BEAUTANCUS
    CALLS TO ORDER
    the Mobilization of The Following Units:



    The Confederated Republic of Beautancus
    musters the following units
    to the righteous cause of Burgundian Liberty, to serve under the overall command of Joint-Armed Forces BURCOM;

    the Air Force 28th Airborne Infantry Legion "Grayguards" - (including 6 cohorts @ 5500 combat personnel apiece - total of 33,000 combat personnel; joining the 3 cohorts already present in-theater; *Airborne Legions are typically composed of 7-9 cohorts + an artillery maniple, command, intelligence, support & transportation maniples, as opposed to the 10 cohorts Tiburan legions typically featured)

    the Air Force 14th Combat Aviation Brigade "Ten Thousand Thunders," - (including 48 attack helicopters, 48 medium lift transport/utility helicopters, 12 heavy transport and utility helicopters, 8 medium command helicopters, 6 electronic warfare helicopters, 18 UAVs + 1 Command Company, + 1 Aviation Support Battalion - which itself includes 12 armed/12 unarmed light helicopters)

    the 5th Army Infantry Division "The Horned Lord's Own" - (Infantry) Brigade Combat Teams Decimus & Rhymer, (Armored) Brigade Combat Team Buckhorn + Combat Aviation/Transport, Combat Engineer, HQ, Intel/Info Control, Law Enforcement, Logistics (Support and Sustainment), Recon and Heavy Fire Support Regiments

    the 9th Army Heavy Armored Brigade "Gatecrashers" - (126 MBTs, 132 assault tanks, 84 AFVs/IFVs, 66 SPGs/mlrs/mortar carriers, 52 light scout/transport vehicles, + variable command/logistics/sustainment & support formations)

    2nd Marine Expeditionary Force (II MEF) - (*In this case, honestly, it will just be easier to look at the wiki page for the US formation of the same name. There are of course minor differences, but close enough to get an idea what we're looking at here.)

    BURCOM -
    Naval Support Facility Revsec,
    Northern Constituent Republics,
    Engellexian Republic


    TO: General Kentigern Hayes, CO 1C3/E-CAF; General Alistair J. Haywoode, CO 44ExCom/CDF


    I would first like to echo those remarks shared by General Hayes, in offering my personal condolences as well as those of the Armed Forces of the Confederared Republic, to General Haywoode and the Armed Forces of the Commonwealth of Clarenthia, for those servicemen and women of the Treatyfolk injured, maimed or altogether snuffed out by the barbarous firebombing of Ouistreham by forces loyal to Pillau.


    The men and women of the Cussian and Engellachian contingents involved in the execution of ODoD have come to these foreign lands with expectations of belligerence given and received, of being scorched by the fires of war - in part stoked by their own hands. This is not so in the case of the largest portion of the Clarenthian contribution to ODoD, and for North Burgundian forces to have focused such wanton malice upon the Treatyfolk is a crime altogether inexcusable in the eyes of BURCOM.

    Likewise, the inexcusable nature of this crime demands justice and retribution of a reciprocal degree, therefore and in short - BURCOM is in full agreement with the other portion of General Hayes assessments regarding the immediate expansion and intensification of combat operations against any and all North Burgundian forces (those loyal to, or acting in support of the now illegitimate and criminal regime in Pillau) currently present within the original territorial boundaries of West Burgundy (formerly Neustria).

    Furthermore, it is the belief of the Cussian DoD and BURCOM that in order to achieve any semblance of a peace that will last in the wake of the present conflict, the aforementioned North Burgundian forces should, must and will be defeated in detail and utterly annihilated before it is possible for them to effect any largescale withdrawal from the theater.

    The enemy forces engaged outside of Ouistreham at present have on several occassions demonstrated a complete disregard for the accepted international conventions and customs governing or informing the lawful execution of combat operations. Naturally, the defense of soldiers simply following orders might be pursued by some - without holding the first bit of water. They, as every free person in uniform around the world, are responsible for determining the essential morality of the orders they have been and were given, which they have been more than happy to carry out. There - again - must, and will be repercussions for this unmistakably savage and uncivilized conduct.

    Consequently, those formations currently engaged in Operation: Blackout - which has itself proven to be a tactical success (despite & in spite of the Ouistreham Inferno) - have been ordered to continue their advance into the enemy's now disintegrating defensive lines.

    Those elements of the 1st Fleet's Combat Aviation Wings that had previously been selected to serve as secondary CAS for Operation Blackout have now been retasked and immediately scrambled to interdict the enemy's forces still in place, or attempting to retreat from their former defensive perimeter.

    The efforts of the Cussian Air Force and Navy, and the contributions of our Clarenthian and Engellachian Domain-partners in overseeing what is now reckoned to have been the largest military airlift in modern history are now and will continue to pay dividends in the coming hours and days. The II MEF, Horned Lord's Own, Grayguards and 10,000 Thunders are now, as noted in this afternoon's bulletin, present in-theater.

    In order to maximize the overall impact of their deployment, these formations will soon conduct a number of operations focusing on strategically vital sites in other portions of the territory of West Burgundy, removed from the immediate vicinity of Ouistreham.

    It becomes clear now that the enemy has believed it possible to pen our forces in that city entirely, or to cause the Domain to lose focus on the wider geographic scale of this conflict for the intensity of their resistance. Whether stemming from poor intelligence regarding the disposition and numbers of those forces arrayed against them in ODoD, or as a result of promises received and only partially (or not at all) upheld by unspoken foreign partners, Pillau has in this case - as with so many others - been gravely mistaken.

    As per recent communication with my direct and overall superiors in Welmonton, it is the duty and obligation of BURCOM and all those forces subordinated to this Command to make clear the cost of such gross miscalculations for Pillau, with prejudice and immediately.

    As a final matter, and as you may have seen for yourselves in the news today, that insane bitch Trumm intends to test the resolve of the League's forces, by willfully disregarding and violating TEZ Engelsea. This is an obvious and entirely unnecessary provocation, further and enormously complicating matters on the ground in-theater, apparently placing us on something of a time table. DoD is formulating the most appropriate response to this provocation, and has assured me that guidance on how to respond to this brinkmanship is immediately forthcoming.

    Once received, appropriate rules of engagement and standing orders will be immediately disseminated to all senior commands in-theater (with an obvious emphasis on Admiral Speier and 1st Fleet).

    Otherwise and in closing, gentlemen, you have my personal assurance that the enemy has only just begun to learn how much fight we have in us. Nothing can prepare them for what will soon land on their heads, just as nothing will stop us from achieving an undeniably total victory in this conflict, undertaken in Defense of the League and for the Liberation of the West Burgundian people.

    I thank you for the diligent and loyal service you and those forces under your commands have already rendered in the course of the Burgundian Conflict thus far, you and they alike are and shall long remain a true inspiration to the people of the Domain. In return, I can but offer my solemn vow that those formations of the Jointed-Armed Forces of the Confederared Republic under my command will ever endeavor to match the intensity with which their fellow Thaumanticans have dedicated themselves to ODoD.

    Though the enemy, and so much of the rest of the world aside consistently fail to appreciate our resolve in this conflict, I have not and never shall. Together, and for the sake of the vision of a better world and more enlightened, liberated humanity that we all share, total victory in this conflict will be achieved.

    Attn. BURCOM :: Proposed CAF Adjustment

    The First Revolutionary Infantry Division reports that it can no longer sustain an effective attack posture following its engagement with Burgundian Militants.
    CAF is proposing the division of detachment of combat and combat support units belonging to 1RID. Those detachments that are still mission capable would be attached to deployed Cussian elements and command schemes.

    The 11th ID will continue security of southern AO Packer in accordance with Operation Scatterbrain, or the establishment of security elements and infrastructure of the southern region of Neustia. Securing the Southern AO remains a central campaign objective for the CAF, where we continue recommending a focus on securing or creating logistics points for these and future operations.

    The 1st Thaumantican Guard Division, our experimental modern combat team, is preparing for deployment and will commence staging between Dulwich and Londinjou to continue its training and preparation for later deployment to the continent as BURCOM solidifies more entry points to the battle space.
