Operation Volcano (Afghan Patrol)

By Andrews



Recently returned from the sands of Helmand, 42 Commando Royal Marines are one of three elite battalion-sized units which make up the global punch of 3 Commando Brigade. Based in Bickleigh, just outside Plymouth, 42 Commando – pronounced Four-Two, not Forty-Two – had been tasked with the crucial security mission in the Nad-e Ali district of Helmand.

After years of bloody civil war, Hazar-Kot Valley is on the verge of Peace. 

The opposition leaders and NATO-backed President Jaffar Mahami have agreed to a meeting in downtown Hazar-Kot Market. 1st Rifles is tasked with escorting and protecting Mahami to, from, and during the meet. Furthermore, Mahami plans to meet with his constituents at the UN Refugee Camp and convince them that Hazar-Kot Valley is still a safe place to live. 

Many civilians have gathered along the border seeking a way out of the country. 42 Commando will also escort and protect Mahami to, during his stay, and from the camp. 

After the misson is completed return Mahami to Camp Churchill. 42 Commando will operate from FOB Churchill and will have all its normal assets. Air support from the airwing (Talon) is limited, as a show of heavy force may spook the opposition leaders. 2 Littlebird's and a Chinook are standing by to provide CAS.
