- UKA Central Command Background
It appears as though the UKA is officially at a state of war. We have gave the Nigerians the benefit of the doubt by merely deploying air defense systems to protect our allies but it seems as though they are preparing to deploy ground forces. So be it. The UKA has warned the Nigerians once again. They shall cease operations immediately or see their country will be completely destroyed. They have received a fair warning. The UKA shall work with regional allies such as Algeria, Libya, and Morocco to defend their sovereignty and prevent the enemy from gaining a single inch of North African land.
Arabian air assets and air defense systems have arrived in North Africa allowing us to ensure that our bases will not be harassed. The United States has also been generous enough to sell us new Warden-B Air Defense Systems and Aegis Ashore Batteries which shall be deployed to North Africa to help stop the invasion. The UKA Army is also deploying to the region while the ALRRF responds to the border infraction supported by the Algerian Armed Forces, one of the largest armies and once the 2nd strongest on the continent. As for the UKA navy, they shall focus on securing North African waters as our large fleet of supercruisers and submarine hunters scours the waters for any signs of movement.
While the initial operation to eliminate the Nigerian navy did not go as planned, it forced a Nigerian withdrawal and ended with our strategic needs being met, the protection of key North African bases and a large scale deployment to said bases. As our 12 Warden-B batteries arrive to the North African front, the enemy will be outclassed in the realm of missile defense and offense. We too posses a large number of ballistic missiles that are more advanced and effective than theirs.
So begins Operation Baibar's Bow.
Air Defense Systems
The UKA has already deployed several air defense systems to North Africa following a successful delivery. Our order from the USA has arrived and shall compliment the forces we have on the ground. The deployments are as follows: Algeria
The UKA has already deployed the following air defense systems to Algeria:
- 3 THAAD Batteries
- 7 Patriot Batteries
- 1 Sharanga Battery
These air defense systems are mostly located at the remaining Algerian air bases, mostly located around the northern parts of the country, protecting the dense urban population centers and air bases. The UKA will assist the Algerians in rebuilding the Annaba/El Mellah Air Base and the Oum El Bouaghi Airbase. Each will receive its own Warden-B System to provide coalition forces with additional cover.
All in all, Algeria shall receive 8 of the 12 Warden-B batteries purchased from the United States which would most definitely prevent the enemy's missile strikes from threatenining our cities. THe Warden-B is a modern system which far surpasses the S-400 or THAAD. Utilizing the AN/MPQ-500 Quantum Radar, it will be able to detect any enemy aircraft in teh vicinity as well as missiles and shall target them using its 4 types of Ancile missiles as well as its laser defense systems, intercepting incoming missiles and dispatching aircraft with ease. With a total horizontal range of 2,050 km and vertical range of 1000 km, the Warden-B shall deal significant damage to the Nigerian's technologically inferior aircraft and missiles.
The Warden-B batteries will also be used together with Algeria's two S-400 batteries, its 8 S-300s, as well as the Algerian's Chinese made HQ-9 SAM and German made Skyshield SHORAD to secure the airspace from any and all invaders who attempt to undermine Algerian sovereignty.
To further improve our chances of eliminating every enemy aircraft and missiles, the Algerian mobile air defense systems shall also be on high alert. Systems such as the Tor SAM, ZSU-23-4 Shilka, S-125-Neva, Pantsir S-1, and S-125 shall be used to accompany ground troops to provide an additional layer of air cover. Algeria will not fall. Libya
Operations in Libya were less than ideal as most of their air assets were destroyed before we even arrived. The UKA therefore sees fit to utilize Egyptian and Algerian air bases to ensure air superiority over Libyan airbases in the north before they are rebuilt to accommodate coalition aircraft and air defense systems. 80 F-35s that were destined for Libya shall land in Egyptian airbases and will protect the airspace over Libya as we rebuild and establish the planned air defense network comprising of:
- 2 THAAD Batteries
- 5 Patriot Batteries
- 1 Sharanga Air Defense Battery
- 1 Warden-B Air Defense Battery
If securing Libyan airspace is successful, ground troops will be able to move through Libya in preparation for a Nigerian attack. Morocco
GIven the lack of a land border between Nigeria and Morocco, the Moroccans shall only recieve 1 additional Warden-B Battery to compliment their air defense network with the THAADs destined for Mauritania being redirected to protect Moroccan cities along the coast. Given its importance geographically, the UKA shall deploy 5 of the newly acquired Aegis Ashore Batteries to Morocco, deploying them such that the entire Moroccan coast including the Western Sahara receive adequate protection from Nigerian naval assets.
The UKA has already positioned 200 SM-1 within striking distance of Nigerian bases in Niger. While the 200 missiles destined for Libya and 200 missiles destined for Mauritania did not land and turned back, it can be assumed that the 200 missiles destined for Mauritania returned to the closest port, that in Algeria. With 400 SM-1 missiles pointing southwards, the UKA will avenge the Algerian bases. The SM-1, or Saroukh al Mutaharik-1 (Highly Mobile Missile-1), was designed to counter most modern air defense systems by being as the name implies, highly mobile. Using thrust vectoring, lightweight skirts, reflective coating, and a low infrared signature, the missile is able to confuse enemy air defense systems and as a result, it is quite difficult to intercept. A single missile would be difficult for the enemy to intercept, let alone a salvo of 360 missiles fired from southern Algeria. The first salvo of 180 missiles shall be fired at the Nigerian airbase in Arlit simultaneously with another salvo of 180 fired at Chirfa AFB. Six Nihaya-1 ICBMs shall also be fired from the UKA targeting Chirfa AFB (2), Arlit AB (2), and Dange Shuni AFB(2), demonstrating its MIRV capabilities. This will eliminate all Nigerian bases in Niger, significantly degrade their aerial capabilities near the theatre, and hinder their advance in Algeria and any future advances on Libya.
The UKA shall also deploy an additional 400 missiles to the theater, to be shipped to Algeria where they will be used to strike enemy positions and crush their advance. In the mean time, the remaining 40 missiles shall be used tactically to hinder the enemy's advance. If the first missile barrage does not destroy Arlit AFB, a second barrage featuring 60 hypersonic SS-88 missiles will be launched in addition to another salvo of 200 SM-1s to overwhelm the enemy. Given the open terrain of the Sahara desert, this will be quite deadly, particularly when used in tandem with the UKA's HD Surveillance Satellite to observe enemy movements and analyze their military doctrine and tactics.
In addition to the systems currently in place, the UKA shall therefore deploy
- 400 SM-1 Highly mobile missile (TELs deployed such that it is within 800 km of Arlit AFB)
- 100 SS-88 Hypersonic Missile(Deployed to Tamanraset as it is within 400 km of Arlit)
- 30 Adhur Aljahim (Deployed to Ouargla as it is well within the 2000 km range)
- 40 DF-3 (Deployed to Algiers)
Aircraft Deployments Morocco
The UKA's supercruiser group has finally arrived in Morocco. It is able of engaging anything the Nigerians can throw at it allowing coalition air force assets to act with impunity in the region. Given the lack of a fixed aerial Nigerian presence, 25 F-35s in Morocco can act against any enemy ships in Arab coastal waters within range, firing long range LRASMs as well as the supersonic carrier destroyer, the SS-2A to eliminate any and all ships. The remaining 22 F-35s will join the fight for air superiority over Algeria aided by Moroccan ELINT/ESM. The aircraft destined for Mauritania that were rerouted will land in Moroccan airbases as they are the closest friendly area. The additional 60 F-35s, 20 6th generation Neurofighters, and 10 HAL Vajras will assist the coalition's airforce with aerial operations over Algeria, neutralizing enemy aircraft and establishing air superiority over OUR airspace, with help from local radar systems, ELINT, intelligence, and satellites. These aircraft will be reinforced by 3 Boeing E-3 AEW&C aircraft to assist us with ongoing operations. Algeria
The UKA has deployed 80 F-35s to Algeria and the aircraft that did not land in Libya will be redirected to Algeria as well bringing the total to 110 F-35s, 100 F-15s, and 5 EA-18G Growlers. Working in coordination with the aircraft in Morocco, the UKA Air Force will eliminate any and all hostiles in Algerian skies, shooting them down and preventing the enemy from advancing on the ground. The F-35s will ensure air superiority and our strength in numbers will serve to eliminate the enemy's presence in the country. Algerian airbases are still functional and the nation is still well within range. The F-15s will take on a secondary role of assisting F-35s in aerial combat but their original role will be to target enemies on the ground when possible, using advanced guided munitions. Algeria's sophisticated network of OTH Radars and its air defense systems covering most of the country will enable us to transform Algerian airspace into a veritable bloodbath for Nigeria.
To ensure victory, the UKA will also deploy additional aerial assets. 30 prototype Ghurab
helicopters shall be deployed for the CAS role, operating in a similar fashion to a highly precise tank killing strike fighter.
The Ghurabs will also be joined by a Saab 340 AEW+C aircraft and a Saab 2000 AEW&C aircraft to ensure full battlefield control and to optimize operations. Additionally, 10 DRDO AURA autonomous stealth fighters will be used to engage the enemy, accompanying 10 additional 6th generation Neurofighter aircraft. Using our advanced BMS, we will be able to coordinate the defense of Algeria and halt the enemy advance one way or another.
Forces on the Ground Arab League Rapid Response Force
The ALRRF shall immediately deploy to southern Algeria to assist the Algerian Army with the defense of the nation. They are well equipped and have experience fighting in the area. Given the large size of the Algerian Army, the Algerians are well equipped and supplied with excellent logistics, after all, they are fighting a defensive war against an enemy in an area where the enemy is outnumbered in the skies and the ground troops are protected by our state-of-the-art air defense systems. All 8,000 men from the Sfax division shall be deployed to this front.
The ALRRF has access to local power grids and shall therefore be able to tap in to recharge any electronic systems as well as shut down the flow of power to restrict the enemy from recharging their systems. The large Sahara desert will prove very difficult for the enemy to cross as apart from the border town of Ghezzlan, they will have to travel hundreds of kilometers to reach the nearest city. To our knowledge, the Nigerians do not posses mobile charging systems as the UKA does. Lacking effective supply and the home advantage, the arriving Nigerian armies will have to travel hundreds of kilometers through the desert, wasting fuel and electricity without a means to resupply as supply lines will be targeted by missile, artillery, and air strikes.
The UKA however will not experience these issues as our airforce has arrived to the scene and our army currently operates the Enigma II APC which can be fitted with a mobile power bank to help recharge exoskeleton Units on the fly, learning from our mistakes in the Palestinian War of Liberation. The ALRRF shall therefore leverage its advantage in urban warfare while providing the Algerian Army assistance and augmenting their firepower. This will stall the Nigerian advance until the bulk of the UKA task force arrives.
All in all, the ALRRF shall deploy:
Algerian Armed Forces
The Algerian Armed Forces were once among the most powerful armies in Africa, veterans of several wars against both conventional armies and fighting as both the guerrillas and the counter-insurgents. In the sand war, the newly independent Algerians held off a Moroccan advance using less advanced technology. During the Algerian civil war, the Algerian armed forces were able to destroy the terrorists and restore order. While the Nigerians were under-supplied and lost swathes of land to Boko Haram, the Algerian army remained disciplined and well organized, so much so that neighboring countries such as Niger once sent their airmen and army-men to be trained by Algeria.
Unfortunately, the nation's army has lagged in terms of technological advancement, that is until the UKA began its resupply of the nation. While the program was terminated as part of the Arab-Nigerian peace treaty, the UKA managed to provide Algeria with hundreds of modern EDIC Saladin Tanks as well as hundreds of APCs, IFVs, and Missile systems that are battle tested in Palestine and relatively on par with their Nigerian counterparts yet better adapted and tested in desert conditions. The UKA High Command has full confidence in the capabilities of the Algerian Armed Forces to at the very least hold the line.
The Algerian Armed Forces also employ the advantage that is fighting for your nation against people who can clearly be distinguished from the rest of the population. The Nigerians are clearly invaders and each and every Algerian has been through mandatory military duty, can fire a gun, and is willing to die for their country. It appears that the Nigerians have forgotten that Algeria is no small nation and is very capable of defending itself regardless of the enemy's advance and shall call on these armed reservists if needed.
In the initial stages of this war, the following shall be deployed to engage Nigerian troops:
250,000 Men shall be deployed with all able bodied men along the Algerian border being drafted as part of a "Home Defense Organization". They shall not be drafted to fight away from their homes but rather to take up arms against any invaders and protect their families from harm. They will fight harder when they are close to their families and their lives are at stake.
APCs and IFVs
- 150 EDIC Saladin Main Battle Tanks
- 400 T-90SA MBTs
- 200 EDIC Enigma IFV
- 100 BMP-3 IFV
- 760 BMP-2 IFV
- 200 EDIC Enigma APC
- 800 TPz Fuchs APC
- 200 BMPT Terminator 2 Tank Support Combat Vehicle
- 50 PLZ-45
- 100 2S3 Akatsyia
- 30 Jobaria MLRS
- 48 BM--14-16 MLRS
- 30 ASH-1 Towed Howitzer
- 150 D-30 Towed Howitzer
- 1,500 Nimr 4x4 HMMV
- 200 Al-Masmak MRAP
- 60 Pantsir S-1
- 35 2K12 Kub
- 40 9K33 Osa
- 25 9K35 Strela-10
- 40 Buk M-2
- 200 ZSU-23-4
- 30 HAL Rukh Attack Helicopter
- 30 Mi-24MKIII Super Hind
- 100 Mil Mi-8 Utility Helicopter
- 30 Su-30
- 20 Su-20
- 20 Mig-29
- 3 Gulfstream G550 ISR Aircraft
- 3 IL-78 Aerial Refueling Aircraft
UKA Armed Forces
- 6 Sindhurastra Class Submarines
- 2 Kilo Class 636M submarines
- 8 Chataan Class ASW Corvettes
- 3 Shivalik-B Frigate
- 3 Project 20382 "Tigr" corvette
The UKA Armed Forces are a formidable force. What was once a poorly disciplined and equipped army has become highly trained and experienced in desert and urban warfare alike. Their large arsenal of exoskeletons and other technologically advanced pieces of equipment allow them to dominate the battlefield and defeat conventional armies larger than them, thanks to the force multipliers associated with highly mobile, resilient, and highly connected ground forces.
The UKA is currently in the process of deploying its armed forces to assist Algerian troops in eliminating any and all Nigerian presence in the country. While the UKA already has 2,000 army members in the country already, we hope to scale up our involvement to include an additional 80,000 men to combat the Nigerian menace. The 80,000 men shall be deployed using the UKA's large number of LCUs, oil tankers, and other ships capable of transporting our troops and equipment. Aircraft shall be used when necessary and shall be escorted through dangerous airspace.
The troops shipped to Algeria shall dock at Tunisian and Algerian ports, under the cover of our air defense systems that have already been put in place. All necessary logistics systems will also be shipped and steady supply lines shall be established. It is clear that the Coalition's Navy dominates the Mediterranean and it would be suicide for the Nigerians to attempt to intercept our ships even more so oil tankers near European waters within range of our air defense systems and naval batteries. What is possible however is for a Nigerian submarine to attempt to pass undetected and attack our supply lines. This will not be tolerated. Both Morocco and Algeria posses Anti-Submarine aircraft and ships that shall protect the Strait of Gibraltar, preventing any naval incursions and securing our supply lines. Algerian submarines shall patrol the waters searching for the enemy. They will be assisted with UKA Naval assets located off the Coast of Morocco.
The troops present in Algeria will assist Algerian troops in holding off the enemy invasion until the bulk of our troops arrive. The UKA's aircraft shall secure Algerian airspace and to a lesser extent Libyan airspace to slow down the attack. Arabian Air Defense assets recently delivered to Algeria shall protect Algerian airspace and down any incoming missiles or aircraft.
All in all, the UKA shall therefore deploy the following to the Algerian front lines with anything not being operated by the UKA being loaned to the Algerian Armed Forces:
APCs and IFVs
- 50 EDIC Saladin MKII
- 400 Leopard 3A1
- 200 M22 Main Battle Tank
- 600 EDIC Saladin (400 Loaned)
- 1300 M1A2v3 (Loaned to Algeria)
- 25 Dhvaja Drone Control Vehicles with 1000 Dhvaja Drones
- 600 Enigma APC
- 200 M50 APC
- 1000 M113 APC (Loaned to Algeria)
- 100 Enigma IFV
- 500 M2A2 Bradley IFV
- 75 Midfa-70 Self Propelled Artillery
- 200 Bijalee-II Self Propelled Artillery
- 100 Bijalee-I Self Propelled Artillery (Loaned to Algeria)
- 600 M109A7 Self Propelled Artillery
- 100 122 mm Howitzer
- 100 Jobaria MLRS (50 Loaned to Algeria)
- 50 M270 MLRS
- 50 Astros II MLRS (Loaned to Algeria)
- 400 Nimr 4x4
- 1200 Al Masmak APC/MRAP
- 1000 Humvee
- 200 AN/TWQ-1 Avenger
- 40 MIM-23 Hawk
- 20 Umbheki C-RAM
- 30 Ghurab VTOL HelicopteCAS Fighter
- 30 AH-64D Attack Helicopter
- 10 AH-64E Attack Helicopter
- 40 CH-47F Utility Helicopter
- 10 Super Puma ASW Helicopter
- 15 DRDO Rustom Predator Drones
- 150 AAI Hamama Suicidal SEAD Drones
- 400 SM-1 Highly mobile missile (TELs deployed such that it is within 800 km of Arlit AFB)
- 100 SS-88 Hypersonic Missile(Deployed to Tamanraset as it is within 400 km of Arlit)
- 30 Adhur Aljahim (Deployed to Ouargla as it is well within the 2000 km range)
- 40 DF-3 (Deployed to Algiers)
Arab League Coalition
- 20,000 ALDUIN Exoskeleton
- 4,500 ALDUIN Power Armor
- 30,000 TALOS Exoskeleton
While the UKA makes up the bulk of the Coalition in Algeria, the rest of the Arab League is expected to contribute. Egypt in particular shall be responsible for the fortification of Libya. Egypt currently operates 80 Su-57 Andhakas, capable of rivalling or surpassing the enemy's domestically made 5th gen fighters as well as 34 F22s and 48 F-35s.
In order to secure Libyan Airspace, we urge Egypt to deploy 42 Su-57s, 16 F22s, and 20 F-35s to eliminate the Nigerian threat over Libya.
Furthermore, the Egyptian Army boasts modernized T-90s that have been upgraded to meet the needs of the Indian armed forces. Egyptian support in protecting the Southern Libyan border would be instrumental in ensuring the survival of North Africa. Boasting an army size of 500,000, we hope that you can spare a task force of 80,000 to reinforce Libyan positions along the border and establish a defensive perimeter. Of the 20 S-400 Launchers possessed by Egypt, we believe 4 in addition to an S300 Battery would suffice to give our fighters in the air the advantage and force a Nigerian Aerial withdrawal.
All in all, the following troops should be deployed by Egypt:
Egypt will also be able to test its X-IAR project, a quadped infantry assisting robot that can carry cargo for soldiers.
- 80,000 troops
- 300 T90 Bhishma
- 400 M1A2 Abrams
- 1200 Enigma APC
- 200 Enigma IFV
- 600 HMMWV
- 400 Fahd 4x4 APC
- 150 Fahd Minelayer
- 200 BAE Caiman MRAP
- 20 M270 Rocket Artillery
- 200 M109 Self Propelled Howitzer
- 20 Apache Helicopter
- 50 KA52 Attack Helicopter
- 40 Kazan Ansat Utility Aircraft
- 10 Teledyne Scarab UAV
- 42 Su-57 Andhaka
- 10 HAL Tejas
- 34 F22
- 20 F-35
By working with the Libyan Armed Forces, Egypt will be able to secure the south and prevent any Nigerian incursions on Arab soil, something that would naturally cause more Arab nations to suffer the same fate. The first domino must be stopped before the others fall.
Other Arab nations may also join the coalition but however Egypt and the UKA are the only two real military players regionally that are able to intervene on this scale. Symbolic contributions of aircraft, logistics, and intelligence are expected from the other members of the Arab League.
The UKA posesses a large number of man portabe drones known as the DB-1 mini an the DB-1 mini rotor which have direct uplinks to our BMS. By using these infrantry drones, we will be able to have complete control over the battlefield on the ground, while larger assets such as the DRDO Rustom Predator Drone provides us with intelligence from higher up. The K-1 Surveilance satellite shall also relay HD troop movements to HQ which will transfer the data to the BMS on the field allowing us to know where to strike effectively as the enemy is invading through the desert with minimal air cover. C&C aircraft and vehicle deployed will use this information to relay it to fighters, artillery, and squads that will in turn neutralize enemy positions. Intelligence from Algeria, particularly from its highly developed radar systems and Algerian intellignece will also be used to contribute to the war effort.
Strategy Defense of Tamanraset, The Algerian South
Tamanrasset is the southern capital of Algeria. As the largest city in the region, it is of strategic importance and is likely heavily defended. While one would question the wisdom of not placing air defense systems near the border of a hostile nation BEFORE they invaded, it must be safe to assume that the bulk of the Algerian defense force is currently stationed nearby.
The strategy in Tamanrasset is simple, use our superior numbers with regards to aircraft as well as using our new Warden-B air defense system to regain air superiority over Algeria, using the airbase in Um al Bouaghi that was damaged but still very much functional. In the mean time, we will use distance to our advantage. The enemy must travel hundreds of kilometers to engage our troops which will create issues with the enemy's supply as large amounts of fuel, rations, and water will need to be transported through the dunes of the desert where many trucks would get stuck. The enemy may try to build makeshift roads which would slow their advance and allow them to become targets of our air strikes, artillery strikes, and rocket barrages.
The empty Sahara can also be used to our advantage as the enemy will not be able to hide among civilian populations. The Jobaria-72 with its large range is the most powerful Rocket Launcher in the world. One Jobaria-72 launcher is capable of firing a salvo of 240 122 mm rockets at a rate of 4 rounds per second, enveloping an area as large as 5 km2 in deadly fire and destruction. The enemy will approach Tamanrasset from the south or southeast as there is no other path towards the city which is when the Jobaria-72 will launch its large salvo at enemy positions, decimating them where they stand and utilizing its superior range to strike before it is struck.
Whenever the enemy erects a road, it will be destroyed by an artillery strike. When an enemy aircraft enters Algeria, it will be hunted down and destroyed, using "safe zones" established by our air defense systems to our advantage to send enemy aircraft into the meat grinder. 6th generation aircraft such as the Neurofighter and drone operated aircraft such as the AURA will be used in more difficult engagements.
In the city itself, every able bodied man will be defending their home from the intruders. It will be a true bloodbath for any invading Nigerians. Our proximity to power supply will also allow for our troops to remain powered while the enemy suffers from attrition. While the enemy will likely deploy their Tizona exoskeletons, Project ALDUIN will make its first appearance to significantly outclass them. A single ALDUIN Power Armor Unit is able to carry and throw cars with ease while the standard ALDUIN Power Armor allows for automatic targeting, encrypted communication, projectile detection and dodge system, a brain-computer interface, and full integration with BMS systems. The enemy will lose every urban engagement as the force multipliers granted by this beautiful work of art are massive. Power concerns are also mitigated by Solar panels which can allow the unit to charge during times of low use in case something happens to the power supply in the city.
Troops will fortify the city to stall any and all advances while a smaller detachment will deploy to meet the Nigerians in battle, using our ranged weapons as well as SHORAD systems to mitigate damage from enemy air assets until air superiority is restored.
Our 400 SM-1 systems shall destroy Arlit and Chifa air bases (see missile strikes section for more details) to degrade Nigeria's capabilities of waging war while our AAI Hamama SEAD Drones ram themselves into enemy air defense systems as part of SEAD Operations while the enemy is busy intercepting missiles, or rather attempting to. 5 DRDO AURA 5th gen Stealth Fighters will take on the dangerous role of firing SIA-47 HARM packages on enemy air defenses while the initial barrage is occurring.
With hundreds of coalition aircraft operating in the theatre, all integrated via our BMS and ELINT systems, air superiority would be quickly achieved.
If air superiority is achieved, then the coalition will be able to move even further south without fearing over-extension. Note that this does not mean the coalition will stand idly as Nigeria invades the rest of the country. We have the advantage of numbers and shall use that to prevent any and all advances.
If the enemy concentrates their forces, then they will be easy targets to eliminate using missile barrages. If they spread themselves out, they will be spread thin and can be eliminated by using our strength in numbers. Logistically, it should be nigh impossible for the Nigerians to successfully invade without stretching their resources very thin.
Air Defenses in Tamanrasset (Um el Bouagi Airbase)
North African Air Defense Systems Range (Ancile-B), Algerian air defenses already deployed, Libyan ADS to be deployed
SS-88 Launchers and Range
SM-1 Range (located around Tamanrasset)
Gibraltar and Morocco
- Green: Highly fortified areas where Nigerian logistics do not allow for a full scale attack. This area is highly fortified and manned with every able bodied man armed and ready
- Red: At a distance of 200 km from the border, we expect most of the fighting to be around this area. With the protective air cover from the neighboring base as well as artillery support from nearby positions, we expect the Nigerians to be stuck here for a long time
- Blue: Once the bulk of the UKA's troops arrive, there shall be a major southwards push to push the Nigerians further away into the desert and eventually recapture the border crossing
After refueling in Morocco and regaining its strength, the UKA's 3rd supercruiser fleet largely outclasses Nigeria's navy. We shall use this to our advantage.
The UKA is currently shipping troops and equipment to North African cities and as such, uses trade routes in the Mediterranean. The UKA's AA frigates can provide the necessary cover to protect our troops to add an extra layer of defense to our air defense network on the coast. The rest of the fleet shall protect Gibraltar with UKA ASW assets and submarine assets patrolling the waters for enemy submarines. given the size of the strait, it is unlikely for the enemy to successful infiltrate the Mediterranean.
Offensively, 2 of the UKA's Sindhurastra shall harass enemy fleets off the coast of Mauritania, firing torpedoes and withdrawing soon after in several hit and run attacks.
Egypt shall be responsible for the defense of Libya. As we have yet to detect any large troop movements, the Egyptians will leverage their proximity to Libya to protect its airspace as it establishes an air defense network in the area as well as a ground presence near the border. It would be stupid for Egypt to engage the Nigerians alone, therefore, they shall remain a distance away from the border, able to intercept enemy forces should they cross the border.
Air force bases in Libya shall be rebuilt and refurbished to house Egyptian aircraft and should air superiority be established, air raids against Chirfa airbase will take place.
While the battle for air superiority will likely be decided by Egypt's Su-57s and F22s vs the Nigerian Lavi, fighters from the UKA operating in Algeria will also assist the Egyptians on this front if needed.
We also request that Egypt launch a 50 missile strong Karitha Missile Salvo at Chirfa Airbase to degrade Nigerian aerial capabilities. This will be launcehd at the same time as the other missiles in Algeria.
tl;dr: Deploying the ALRRF to the front lines along with 250,000 Algerian soldiers equipped with decent equipment obtained from the last time this happened. This will be reinforced by more troops from the UKA and the airbases that were destroyed that are still accessible will be rebuilt and used. Air defense systems have arrived in Algeria including the newly purchased Warden-B which will serve to establish air superiority when used with our other aircraft. Also missile strikes. Loads of missile strikes
