Operations Deny Flight and Deliberate Force


Where: Airspaces of Bosnia and Serbia

When:
  • Day 1: Jul. 19th, 2019 from 1745z to 2315z
  • Day 2: Jul. 20th, 2019 from 1745z to 2330z
  • Day 3: Jul. 21st, 2019 from 1745z to 2300z

Teams:
  1. NATO
  2. Republika Srpska

NATO Bases: LIPA (fighters, bombers); LIPR (AWACS, tankers)
Republika Srpska Bases: Established by TL in Serbia

What: NATO through Operation Deny Flight is the enforcement of a United Nations No-Fly Zone over Bosnia and Herzegovina. The UN and NATO later expanded the mission of Deny Flight to include with Operation Deliberate Force providing close air support for UN troops in Bosnia and carrying out coercive airstrikes against targets in Bosnia.

ROE: NATO forces must track and ID all airborne assets and issue orders to land or exit NFZ. If assets don't comply, declare hostility, commit attack or ignore orders, NATO is cleared to engage.

BANNED WEAPONS: AGM-154A, AGM-158, GBU-54




Some history:
In October 1992, at the beginning of the Bosnian War, the United Nations Security Council passed Resolution 781. This resolution prohibited unauthorized military flights in Bosnian airspace. Following the resolution, NATO began Operation Sky Monitor during which NATO forces monitored violations of the no-fly zone, without taking any military action against violators. By April 1993, NATO forces had documented more than 500 violations of the no-fly zone. In response to these "blatant" violations of Bosnian air space, and implicitly of resolution 781, the UN Security Council issued Resolution 816, prohibiting all flights in Bosnian air space, except for those expressly authorized by the UN Flight Coordination Center and authorizing UN member states to "take all necessary measures ... to ensure compliance" with the NFZ restrictions.

In response to this resolution, NATO commenced Operation Deny Flight on 12 April 1993. Initially, Deny Flight was intended only to enforce the no-fly zone; however several NATO members, including the United States, were eager to find ways to end the war and improve the situation of civilians, and hoped that military action could do so. These officials were eager to expand US air operations through Deny Flight, hoping that an aggressive no-fly zone and possible airstrikes would end the conflict more quickly.


NATO Briefing

DAY 1 (Deny Flight):
NATO will operate AWACS and tankers (if available) from LIPR and monitor the airspace of Bosnia, Serbia and surroundings while fighter jets tasked to patrol and enforce NFZ will take-off from LIPA. Guided by the Sentry controller, air fighters will intercept and engage whenever necessary any non-complying aircraft which poses itself as a threat.

Day 2 (Deliberate Force):
As the NFZ enforcement continues, the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR) ground operations reports that the Army of Republika Srpska had threatened and attacked UN-designated "safe areas" in Bosnia and Herzegovina with several hostile acts against civilians, hence NATO's decision to launch Operation Deliberate Force.
ODF has the aim to undermine the Serbian Army by conducting airstrikes on enemy posts in coordination with UNPROFOR JTACs and NATO AWACS controllers.

Day 3:
After intense combat, Republika Srpska has been greatly weakened. With superior air and ground forces, NATO air campaign continues with the aim to put pressure on the state to reach an agreement in order to terminate the war.

REMARKS:
- OPRF Rules are in effect.
- This event will include MP automat aircrafts flying for Republika Srpska. In case there is a small to none presence of aforementioned assets, actual pilots will have to act as OPFOR, thus needing to input a different callsign from the one they normally use.
- Unless NATO finds a tanker pilot, use of AI tankers is highly recommended. Although refueling MUST HAPPEN OUTSIDE enemy territory over the Adriatic Sea.
- If an overall minor presence of both pilots and assets happens, we will agree on a "game pause" that will postpone the remainder of the day to the following until we conclude.
- The event should allow both NATO members and TL to be eligible for rank promotion.

Do we have permission to establish a NFZ also for commercial traffic?

No, because all ops will be on private OPRF server and I doubt Leto would create commercial AI planes for that purpose which is pointless. And anyhow that kind of traffic would be deviated to other routes knowing there's a conflict happening.

There will be no shooting at commercial traffic. Its one of the OPRF rules.

There is a chance I cannot join on the 20th, the other dates should be fine.

DEBRIEFING DAY 1:



It has been a long and intense night of air combat with casualties on both sides but NATO has gained an advantage over Serbia with estimated 30+ downed jets. This has forced the enemy to give up some territory and losing partial domain of the skies. Intel reports show that Republika Srpska Air Force is now compromised and under a reorganization status that could last 12 or more hours.
This means that NATO has to take advantage of such situation to conduct more air interdiction and respond on the ground with airstrikes to support UN and Bosnian ground troops which (alongside with civilians) have been targeted by Serbian bombers. UNPROFOR JTACs will coordinate with AWACS to provide NATO jets with coordinates of designed positions and assets to attack. In addition, it has been reported that Serbians have seized a number of SAM batteries and placed them around Bosnia in order to defend the territory from NATO incursions.
Operation Deliberate Force is about to start so get ready and execute!

REMARKS:
- Slovenian airspace has been declared SAFE for AAR and NATO has been given the authorization to do so.
- Like yesterday, LIPR can be used as FOB for rearming, repairing and refueling, but NOT for respawning.

DEBRIEFING DAY 2:



After a never-ending and exhausting night over Bosnia, NATO has once again proved its superiority. The NFZ showed its effectiveness with 15+ downed enemy jets, forcing Serbians to limit their sorties to the strictly necessary with the main aim to avoid further losses. Furthermore, the airstrikes have greatly supported both UN and Bosnian ground troops which now have a significant advantage.
ODF is at a crucial point, with almost no presence of A/A opposition, NATO plans to continue airstrikes over Bosnia to clear more enemy posts and convoys still in the country, keeping an eye out for remaining SAM batteries which could pose a threat to mission execution. The ultimate objective is to force a cease-fire which will lead to negotiate the peace terms for an independent and free Bosnia.
The conflict is almost over, hold on tight and commit to one last fight.

REMARKS:
- In addition to Slovenia, Croatian airspace has been declared SAFE for AAR and NATO has been given the authorization to do so.
- In addition, the Croatian government has cleared NATO jets to operate from LDSP for fueling, rearming and repairing their jets (NO respawn).
