Briefing and Mission Launch: 1930hrs (Sydney time)
Operation Kestrel Shield focuses on the area around the USMC Hill 950 forward observation post. Radio intercepts and human intelligence indicate a build up of VC and possibly NVA forces in the region to the East of Hill 950. ASOR have been tasked with occupying and securing Hill 950 while USMC take a well-earned R&R break.
Hill 950 is the northernmost allied position in the Khe Sanh region, and holds a commanding view over the surrounding area. It is of enormous strategic value and if lost to the North Vietnamese would give them an ideal artillery and anti-air position within range of the Khe Sanh airfield. As such, it is critical we hold this site at all costs.
– Primarily Viet Cong infantry with some NVA support/leadership elements
– Limited heavy weapons
– Unconventional warfare tactics
– Possibility of artillery or armour closer to the DMZ to the North
– ASOR 1SQN
Civilians will largely be confined to population centres. Their loyalty is unclear.
Khe Sanh – mountainous jungle areas.
Secure and fortify the Hill 950 Observation Post. Conduct security patrols in the immediate region. Disrupt VC supply lines and dominate the area.
The mission will occur in SIX phases:
Phase One – Briefing and Preparation/Shake-Out
Phase Two – Insertion onto Hill 950 via XRAY
Phase Three – Primary Objective: Fortify Hill 950 using available equipment and supplies. Set up THUMPER callsign if available
Phase Four – Conduct a patrol in force to the East, investigating intel regarding VC activity
Phase Five – Secondary Objective: Cordon and search a suspected VC sympathiser village to the West of Hill 950
Phase Six – Return to Hill 950. Ensure the security of Hill 950
Phase Seven – Debrief
