Operation Allied Force


Where: Airspaces of Serbia and Kosovo

When:
  • Day 1: Jul. 26th, 2019 from 1745z to 2300z
  • Day 2: Jul. 27th, 2019 from 1745z to 2230z
  • Day 3: Jul. 29th, 2019 from 1745z to 2200z

Teams:
  1. NATO
  2. Yugoslavia

NATO Base: LIBV (fighters, bombers), LGPZ (AWACS), LIBD (tankers).
Yugoslavia Bases: LY90 (Kosovo), LY88 (Serbia).

What: The bloodshed, ethnic cleansing of thousands of Albanians in Kosovo by Serbs driving them into neighboring countries, and the potential of it to destabilize the region provoked intervention by international organizations and agencies, such as the United Nations, NATO, and INGOs. NATO countries attempted to gain authorization from the United Nations Security Council for military action, but were opposed by China and Russia that indicated they would veto such a proposal. NATO launched a campaign without UN authorization, which it described as a humanitarian intervention.

On 23 March 1999 at 21:30 UTC, US Amb. to UN Richard Holbrooke returned to Brussels and announced that peace talks had failed and formally handed the matter to NATO for military action. Hours before the announcement, Yugoslavia announced on national television it had declared a state of emergency, citing an imminent threat of war and began a huge mobilization of troops and resources.

On 23 March 1999 at 22:17 UTC, the Secretary General of NATO, Javier Solana, announced he had directed the Supreme Allied Commander Europe (SACEUR), US Army General Wesley Clark, to "initiate air operations in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia." On 24 March at 19:00 UTC, NATO started its bombing campaign against Yugoslavia.

ROE: NATO forces must penetrate and clear Kosovo from Serbian air defenses and key military targets, destroying also enemy airbases to gain control of the region.
Every MiG present in the area is to be considered hostile. Once Kosovo has been stabilized, further action has to be done in Serbia to undermine its military and thus forcing them to call ceasefire.

BANNED WEAPONS: AGM-158, GBU-54


Day 1:
NATO jets are tasked to conduct SEAD missions over Kosovo alongside with counter-air operations including airfield bombing. Once the area has been cleared from air defense batteries, proper A/G ops against military targets can be executed.

Day 2: Airstrikes and DCA missions over Kosovo continue till Serbian forces surrender.

Day 3: Yugoslavia is heavily undermined. With a handful of aircrafts remaining and no more SAMs left, destroying the remaining targets over Serbia should lead NATO to a clear victory and put an end to the conflict.

More to come.

Day 3 is probably cancelled. Jmav16 can you confirm (and remove it from calendar)?

If you check the above dates I've already changed it, I can update the calendar as well.

DEBRIEFING DAY 1:



It has been an overall solid first day of combat for NATO which has carried out even that expected tasks. Apart from getting rid of a number of SAMs in Kosovo and severely compromising Yugoslavian AF, a raid has been conducted on the main airbase in the region, forcing Serbian forces to abandon it alongside with many fighters and restart its counter-offensive deeper from Serbia, allowing NATO to achieve a stronger presence in Kosovo.
With this advantage and a handful of SAMs left, it's now time to continue the campaign by targeting Serbian outposts still posing a threat to both local ground forces and civilians in particular. If we achieve this objective, Serbs will be forced to flee the region back to Yugoslavia, possibly bringing destruction to any village they encounter and hammering the population. For this reason, any convoy traveling north is to be considered hostile and can be engaged.
If yesterday was intensive, today will be just as much filled with action.

DEBRIEFING DAY 2:



Another successful day for NATO with the liberation and stabilization of Kosovo.
The region has been cleared completely from enemy SAM sites and key targets have been destroyed, forcing Serbians back in a Yugoslavia at the point of break. The air force has been massively undermined as well, with several jets destroyed and an OCA mission being carried out over the enemy base in the final part of the fight.
With a massive and confusional withdrawal of troops, Serbians have negotiated a 48-hour-long ceasefire with NATO representatives which is presently under effect in order to "prevent any possible hostile acts against the population" and to "evaluate a possible agreement on a peace treaty in the near future".
Some intel reports although have brought to light that the ceasefire might be used instead as a re-organizational period for Serbia in order to respond with fire to NATO as soon as the 48hrs expire.
With that in mind, Alliance planners have kept their jets ready to respond at any signal of combat-intended movements. Fortunately, no anti-aircraft missiles have been left intact for use in Kosovo and Serbia has run out of them with no supplies being able or intending to fulfill their need in the near future.

UPDATE (JUL. 28): Apparently, Serbia's tentative of retaliation has been anticipated by a convoy led by a group of soldiers non-complying with the ceasefire who have forced a block at the border with Kosovo also by killing 2 guards and 1 civilian in the process in a pointless attempt to seize the near village of Kosutica. NATO leaders have declared the act in opposition to the agreed pact and are going to resume operations over Serbia as soon as possible.

With hopefully the last offensive in the country, NATO aims by launching airstrikes at further critical targets to compromise Serbian capabilities to sustain the war for a longer period, hence forcing its leaders in the situation to finally surrender and conclude a conflict which has lasted way too long to be acceptable.

One last sortie and we will be able to put an end to this bloody war, so get ready once more and let's make it count.
