Back Story:

2010: The government of Belarus announced its intentions to move away from its close ties to Russia and declared its commitment to Europe. Following this announcement a Military coups takes place, predominantly in the towns of Polishkovo and Rypovno. Suspected Russian government supporters infiltrate the country’s border and take up residence in the battle torn town of Rypovno.

2014: The community at Rypovno, having been left to their own devices for nearly 4 years, start to build a wall around the perimeter of the village to shield them them from outside interference. All government organisations that try to intervene within the town are met with hostility.
2015: The Belarus Government Forces (BGF) aggressively push into the town area to gain control of the area and are again met with fierce resistance, resulting in firefights between the Rypovno locals and the Belarus Government Forces (BGF). The BGF exerts over-caution and pulls out of the area to prevent further blood shed.
BGF reports claim that Rypovno residents were well equipped and fought like well trained soldiers.
2016: Multiple,covert surveillance operations have taken place within the town of Rypovno and it’s surrounding areas, and it is now believed that the residents of Rypovno are hardline Russian Separatists calling themselves the Sem’ya Brat’yev (SB (Family of Brothers)). It is unclear what their motives are by occupying the town, and it is unclear just who their alliances lay toward. At the moment, intelligence suggests that they are assisting, in some way, either with weapons storage or weapons manufacturing, on behalf of anti western organisations. With the town being so close to the Russian border it is common for vehicles to be seen convoying into Russia.
The Russian government appears to be washing their hands of the incidents so far and refuse to comment other than to say “it is not our problem”.
2016: The Belarus Government ask nearby European nations, as well as NATO,  for assistance and while most have declined help, the United Kingdom, with the help of the United States, have agreed to form the Praetorian Coalition Force (PCF), to assist.
2017: With tensions rising and sporadic firefights breaking out in the region between locals and the BGF, it has expertes believe the BGF to be the catalyst for violence in the area. With this information the Belarus Prime Minister has requested the assistance of the PCF. Belaruse Government Ministers believe the better trained soldiers of the PCF will, be better equipped to deal with the violence that is taking place. It is also hoped that this show of force will quell any further violence in the area, although defence experts have warned that the introduction of foreign troops to the area could create an Iraq war style type of sectarian villence against the PCF. With intelligence to hand, top level commanders within the PCF announced that they will deploy a company size force, of approximately 40 men to take over control and policing of Rypovno and its surrounding areas. The PCF are to deploy in a peaceful posture and determine just why the SB are occupying the town of Rypovno. 

June 2017: Task Force Noble (TFN) of the PCF deploy to Rypovno in an attempt to police the town as part of a wider security operation across the Eastern border of Belarus. During TF Noble’s deployment, weapons and Improved Explosive Devices (IED), as well as manufacturing facilities were found. Following this the Task Force came under deliberate and coordinated attack. The Task Force sustained severe casualties as, what seems to be the whole populace of Rypovno, took up arms against them. The Russian government have condemned the operation issuing a statement from the president stating that “yet again, Western forces have shown to be trigger happy and hungry for death. We will not stand by and allow innocent Russians to be killed”. It is unclear at this time if any civilians were killed during the fighting, and Russian ministers have refused to elaborate further on the Russian presidents statement.

October 2017: Following heavy fighting in the town of Rypovno, small pockets of violence erupted in multiple locations along the Belarus and Russian border. Reports flow thick and fast of fighters flooding over the border into Belarus from Russia indicating Russian assistance, which is heavily denied by Russian the government. Very quickly BGF troops in the border town of Longmoor are overrun by the SB insurgency and are forced to withdraw. TFN are re-deployed to the region to try and regain control and bring back security to the town but are quickly faced with what is believed to be a small number of SB forces with an extremely well organised supply chain. Receiving sporadic Indirect Fire (IDF), small arms fire, and rocket attacks throughout their deployment, the coalitions elite task force eventually took the fight to the enemy and launched a deliberate and sustained assault into the town to try and clear out any remaining insurgents.

March 2018:  Octobers operation into Longmoor stirred up a hornets nest causing hundreds of insurgent fighters to flood to the region. In addition to this, leaked pictures of potential prisoner abuse in October 2017 has caused sever back lash against Western forces in the area. As Coalition troops try to bring peace and stability to Longmoor and the surrounding areas the insurgency launches a major offensive against them. Capturing two coalition troops, one later rescued and one later exchanged, it was very clear that the SB insurgency had increased their efforts to remove coalition troops from the region. What follows is sustained and heavy engagement causing coalition troops to abandon key positions while sustaining heavy casualties. The SB claim a victory in the region, while coalition troops lick their wounds. During the infamous Task Force Noble’s withdrawal, reports of Russian troops involved in combat operations emerge.

June 2018: Following reports of Russian involvement Coalition commanders authorise covert troop movements into the Bramley Ammunition Facility (an old ammunition facility straddling the Belarus and Russian border from the days of the Soviet Union). This is the closest that Western forces have been deployed to Russian troops and Coalition troops tread very carefully. During the deployment Coalition troops come under fire from local insurgents in the area, backed up by Russian Special Forces. What ensues is a heavy engagement with all sides taking casualties. Coalition forces, believed to be those of the renowned Task Force Noble, manage to extract from the area with evidence showing Russian involvement, and while the Russian government remains relatively silent on the issue, claiming that their troops were defending themselves from within their own legally defined territory, security experts have theorised that there could be rogue elements within the Russian government pulling the strings.

September 2018: Coalition troops prepare for operations into the now insurgent controlled town of Longmoor….
