Operation Barbarossa

Situation

We have the enemy on the backfoot! After successfully capturing the 2 main staging points and the nuclear power plant which we fought so hard to capture. Unfortunately the 1st Marine Division had no luck in capturing the islands closer to the mainland and sustained heavy casualties that they were forced to retreat back to  Vulsk Island and reorganize for a future mission onto that island or the mainland itself. 

 

After extracting back to Utes Forward Air Station from the Nuclear power plant the USMC sent specialists into the area to maintain the viability and stability of the plant. Unfortunately due to the damage of Tower 3 sustained by D-207 forces we have had to shut down that station in order not to cause a meltdown and effectively starved the SW portion of the mainland of power and infrastructure which inter have aligned themselves with the Pro-Russian forces in that sector.
