Some Marines keeping an eye on things.

Al Rafai  1:15am  1st Recon has spent the day resting (ha) and preparing for the assault through Al Rafai.  The assault is scheduled for 1:35 am with a preparatory bombardment and support from 2 flights of Cobras.  The Fire control team observes as the first rounds start to fall on the doomed town.  The fires in the distance are roadblocks set by the defenders - suspected irregular forces with maybe a mix of regular units that have abandoned their posts.


The effect is immediate


The fire plan had been set to avoid if possible damage to the main mosque.  Godfather watches in silence hoping that explosion was further than it would appear.


He would unfortunately be wrong

The Fedayeen occupying the town however have bigger concerns than the mosque.  Recent students from Syria, Jordan and Saudi Arabia, they have not experienced any of the sheer terror of modern combat.



1st Recon units start moving towards jumping off positions.  Unfortunately trying to drive a bunch of Humvees through even a lightly occupied town with one sniper in CM isn't gonna end up looking at all like what 1st Recon did in Al Gharraf.  Assassin 1 units move into their forward position...…… on foot :D 



By the way if anyone is interested there is a nice site with google map links for the major locations in 1st Recon's drive on Baghdad.  Also a really nice pic of their pimped out Humvees LOL


I've substituted Al Rafai for Ar Rifa- According to Google maps that is it's proper name.  It's eventually gonna be Mahmudiyah in the Triangle of Death for units of the 4th ID when I get around to editing the map for that.  Your map is getting near as much use for me as LLF's Ramadi map :D@George MC

The defenders Command structure starts to suffer.  Communications are bad enough, but with no formal command structure loss of key leaders leaves the units adrift.



Meanwhile Assassin 1 has the frontline seats for the bombardment and Cobra runs.

1st recon plan is for Assassin 1 to occupy a factory complex on the northern outskirts of the town.  The open fields between it and the river will allow the team to cut off the defenders from the North and create confusion.  Meanwhile once Assassin 1 has confirmed they are on the objective Hitman elements will cross the canal and follow the canal road west then occupy the buildings along that route.  This is parallel to the bridge road and one block over.  Hitman 3 is tasked with actually taking control of the bridge itself.  Meanwhile Raptor and the remaining elements of Assassin will frontally assault the thoroughly disrupted defenses and clear the town,  Hitman elements are to maintain a defensive posture along the canal to prevent a friendly fire incident.


The first the insurgents know of 1st recon's plan is the sudden appearance of smoke if front of the northern positions.  They wait for the Americans to appear...… 




Meanwhile Assassin 1 has slipped past them in the dark and headed for their objective in the enemy rear.


The insurgent commander confused by the failure of the enemy to appear sends a team forward across the road.


On hearing they see nothing he races across himself to confirm.

Godfather upon hearing from Assassin 1 orders Hitman across the canal.





The insurgent leader to the north nervous about what is going on around him sends out men to the other two team leaders in his area.  Unfortunately one is dead and the other is in a daze wandering among his men - casualties of the American bombardment.  There is no help.

Assassin 1 is given the order to reveal their presence.  Lt Navarro gives the order to Sgt Nieto to light up some contacts around their position - "time to start this party Sgt."  The bravado hides his concern that his platoon is isolated from the rest of the battalion and the enemy force in the town is estimated at several hundred.







On the opposite end of town Hitman starts eliminating enemy units surging toward the canal road.

The young insurgent leader may have been inexperienced and afraid, but he was brave... or just blindly stupid.  He didn't hesitate to throw his men at the Americans who had appeared behind him.  Against a superior trained force in a good defensive position endowed with night optics his men never stood a chance.





Some survived long enough to return fire, but that lasted only moments.  Some of the insurgents did survive...and would likely end up in Fallujah or Ramadi





Hitman's battle was just beginning
