I am doing this just as I would if I were back in a NATO planning cell.

Remember that there is a full Kelt reinforced division with a special forces company attached, along with a strong Kelt task force. Commanders are Major General Mhari Sinclair and Vice Admiral Slaine Aoibhell.

The EU Brigade under Margit Guderian and the Kelt Knight's Templar Division have a joint headquarters right next to the Merriden Inn. The owner has his inn back and is making a ton of money.

How would the Alpha Site commander know those specific names? The report of the battle can't have gone up the chain that fast. And Dal Riada is just an ordinary grunt who commands an infantry platoon. He's not special forces. Why would he be called out?

 for the sake of convenience so that we could use actual names. Plus the battle info is being constantly relayed back to HQ, they'd be getting updates possibly every ten to fifteen minutes...hopefully  :sam10

One more time. I'm a combat vet. The rest of you aren't. Been there, done that, got the major scars on the hip and leg. From what I was reading it wasn't that short, and it was intense. After intense combat you need to resupply, get some hot food, hot drink and rest up. It exhausts you. Mentally and physically. Tired soldiers make stupid decisions. Tired commanders make really stupid decisions. Been there. Seen it. It sucks.

While true in reality Robert, we can't in practicality sit around and wait for teams, or do random time jumps here and there to let things catch up. Or even create new teams to fill the gaps; we just gotta run with what we have. Doesn't make a lot of sense for realism, I know.

Battlefield:

 4 hours time jump. Someone needs to go wake Ben up. There will be a lull, a quietness as it will appear for the time being the Forerunners have withdrawn. As later we'll find out they have a reason for doing so. "Can you hear that?" the sound of silence :D

Has one of those  :lol :fp :yes:

Mel, Brigid wasn't reading Ben's mind, I was just following what you had in quotes and color and it looked like he was talking about cars.

 nope wasn't assuming she was :P you missed his last sentence where he mentioned his dad, and Brigid did mention about his use of 'cheese and kisses' so he gave her a rather lengthy reply which I thought she may have hit on :D no probs tho.

OK. how do we handle this at the battlefield? There is a difference between administrative control and operational control. Administrative control is still back with the EU/NATO brigade; operational control should be with the Kelt division.

I was thinking that some of the EU/NATO nations aren't as well equipped and trained for winter/mountain warfare as they could be, so the lack has to be made up, which will take time.

I'm thinking the terrain the Forerunners are moving through is very rough, unsuitable for vehicles. The troops would have to rappel in by helicopter or be transported there by vehicle as far as they can go and then walk the rest of the way in.

I would like to see the locals with some EU/NATO support make and end run and head for the Forerunner rear areas, disrupt logistics and command and control.

Another thing is that some of the EU/NATO countries have 'hollow armies'. The Poles, the Romanians, the Bulgarians, etc. They have the force structure but don't have the manpower to man the units properly. A battalion will be the size of company, and so on. In order to throw a force together they have to combine units that have never trained or worked together, etc.
