Battlefront Repository Posted January 14, 2012 Share Posted January 14, 2012 NEW Briefing by SLR :April 29th 1978 Sherkhankhel area. Orders for Operation BelugaInsurgents are active in the vicinity of the Sherkhankhel village. In the previous months there have been a number of ambushes nearby at the Kunar river crossing and on Highway 1 in which the Mujahideen have finally succeeded in destroying the bridge and the 2 pillboxes flanking it. However, our engineers have recently been able to erect a temporary replacement bridge (see map). The enemy is well trained and well motivated and they know the ground. Normally in this area they operate at approximately platoon strength, however thanks to A.N.A. infiltration it is a safe bet that they know all about the contents of our particular convoy. Consequently I would predict that we can expect a particularly warm welcoming committee of at least company strength. The local Mujahideens are well equipped with a variety of weapons including AKs, PKs and RPGs acquired from previous raids on our convoys. There is a strong likelihood that owing to the nature of our cargo, they will be fielding extra anti-tank weapons and possibly mortars as well. They want the gold and the cash we are carrying badly.
