Operation Scylla and Charybdis

Recommended Posts


6/9/2018 9pm CST




Syndikate forces driven from Tanoa have decided to take residence in Isla Duala and have begun a massive piracy operation in the area.


Alongside this growing problem a Boko Haram cell is also operating in the area, attacking NATO FOB's, kidnapping locals, extorting business's and general terrorist activity.


This has created a refugee problem since people have lost their homes and possesions. IDAP has stepped in to take care of these and setup a camp east of Kinsella in the south.


They also have problems with raids. Supplies have been stolen IDAP workers injured and property damaged. However NATO has offered little support so we may be called upon to offer assistance.

Finally RACS, the formal Army of Saharani has been conducting massive military drills in the waters to North. Obviously the Dualan government is concerned of an impending attack.

The two nations have come to blows over sovereignty of the island many times and RACS has recently received a major budget increase as well as the defacto president of Saharani being ousted in a coup.

Due to this NATO sent in a peacekeeping force consisting of Hellenic Mechanized Infantry and UK/US advisory staff to assist in keeping the area stable and deter RACS from launching any sort of offensive on the small island nation.

It is by no means a fully fledged fighting force as they are operating under Dualan command. The are operating out of Fort Boko to the East of Bolabongo.20180518184828_1.thumb.jpg.561d2ac6f242f7a14f771c970c3b8c9c.jpg

Needless to say tensions are running high. Be aware of your surroundings, keep the current status quo, and DO NOT INVOLVE YOURSELF IN ONGOING CONFLICTS.


Anti Piracy and COIN operations in Isla Duala. Support NATO forces.

ObjectivesNATO is unimpressed with our performance. Therefore we are going to be doing humanitarian work with NATO advisors present.

Meanwhile a RRF consisting of the MK V SOV and 2 RHIB's will be shadowing to intercept any pirates. The supplies will be going to an IDAP group. We will use this opportunity to take out as many pirates as possible with a hammer blow, they will be stuck in the natural bay. Leave none alive, we must regain NATO favor. DO NOT CROSS INTO EXCLUSION ZONES UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES

@sparkstable Being between Scylla and Charybdis is an idiom deriving from Greek mythology, meaning "having to choose between two evils". Several other idioms, such as "on the horns of a dilemma", "between the devil and the deep blue sea", and "between a rock and a hard place" express similar meanings.

Every time I hear of Scylla and Charybdis I think of the Duck Tails episode where they do the Odysseus story.  Don't even remember if those two are in the episode... but Circe and the Siren are.  All the same... that's what I think of.

Delta was not in my squad, so it wasn't my responsibility to see he went down. Had his battle buddy performed immediate life saving procedures...
