THE EAST PRUSSIAN INFANTRY
1. INFANTERIE-DIVISION
08 JUL 2017
OPERATION ORDER 0708-17 (Invasion of Crete)


Time Zone Used Throughout the Order: QUEBEC
(Eastern Standard Time)


TASK ORGANIZATION
Elements from 1.Gruppe and 2. Gruppe of Erste Zug, Erste Kompanie, Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 1

I. SITUATION

a. Area of Interest: The Grecian Island of Crete

b. Area of Operations: Area encompassing grid coordinates 0400-0401, Including the central Farm land, supporting villages, and lakes on the south-center of the island.

     (1) Terrain
  • Observation and Fields of Fire:
    The AO Consists of mostly flat, tree farms with think vegetation and many wooded areas on both flanks. Roadways are easily accessible to both friendly and enemy troops to allow for quick movement of QRF within the AO. Visibility will be incredibly limited <100m in some areas often interupted by trees.  While easy to cover and conceal friendly movement, the enemy can also exploit this advantage. Expect a possible ambush by hostile forces.
  • Avenues of Approach:
    From the insertion point, friendly forces will need to initiate movement directly south through the farmland toward the objective, clearing enemy presence as encountered.  The enemy expects friendly forces to attack from this direction. Plan to encounter established defenses
  • Key and Decisive Terrain:
    Located on a small hilltop, the lighthouse serving as the objective provides a strong point for enemy forces in the area.
  • Obstacles:
    Obstacles will include man-made structures and debris, Narrow roadways, think farmland, and a few lakes will provide obstacles that may impede friendly movement in the area
  • Cover and Concealment:
    Cover available includes rocks, thick trees, as well as any man-made structures and buildings which can be re-purposed. Enemy forces have more established cover and concealment from their defensive positions, which will be encountered.

c. Enemy forces: Enemy forces are mixed contingents of both British and Grecian Armies, along with civilian militia .

  • Recent Activities
    Enemy forces have been mounting a defense of their island home. Civilians have been known to be uncooperative with friendly forces, and trained enemies are in some cases resorting to guerrilla-style warfare.
  • Strength
    We are securing our control of the Grecian island of Crete. The capitol city has fallen, and at this point, we are just mopping up small packs of resistance. The threat comes from guerrilla-style combat which can be difficult to pin-point. We have learned of a few areas where the enemy is still basing its strength.  Upon securing the lighthouse, everything eastward on the island will be under friendly control.

  • Composition/Disposition
    Enemy forces are composed to no-more than conventional land forces, and mostly small-arms. They do not have naval or air support. Enemy soldiers generally operate in small squad sized elements in attempts to easily conceal their movements from us.  Keep in mind the civilian populace. We are becoming an occupation force, and unnecessary civilian casualties will not be tolerated.

II. MISSION
Elements from Erste Zug, Erste Kompanie, Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 1, 1. Infanterie-Division will conduct operations in the central region of the Island of Crete encompassing the regions of grid coordinates 0400-0401 to destroy and disrupt resistance activity.

Tasks: To move southward from the capitol tough the region clearing enemy activity along the way, until reaching the objective of the lighthouse on the central-southern tip of the island. This objective must be secured and the eastern half of the island made safe before pushing any further west. Upon the capture of the objective, the platoon will relocate, rearm, and regroup in the nearby village of Minospol.

Purpose: To destroy enemy moral and solidify our control of the area.

III. EXECUTION

a. Commanders Intent:  Operations are executed and objectives fulfilled in accordance with direction from higher. Soldiers know and complete individual soldier tasks safely, and mission is completed with minimal casualties.

b. Concept of Operations:

The Decisive point will be when the Zug successfully captures the enemy occupied lighthouse on the central-southern tip of the island. Upon completion of the objective the Zug will regroup with friendly forces in the village of Minospol awaiting further instruction

The Operation will begin with the Zug being inserted at 1730 to the south of the City of Heraklion, with equipment and ammunition.  The platoon will be organized and leadership designated.

The Platoon will then proceed, under the leadership of the Zug Fuhrer from the insertion point toward the Objective, clearing the area of enemy presence along the route.

The Operation will conclude with the Zug securing the lighthouse and surrounding defensive positions and regrouping in Minospol

c. Tasks to Subordinate Units and Staff:

(General) Ensure all soldiers are properly equipped for extended time in the field. Double check Weapons, Grenades, and Ammunition

  • Medical Personnel - Attached medical personnel will provide on-site care to soldiers of 1.Zug. Ensure medical personnel are properly equiped with enough supplies to sustain prolonged conflict in the field without resupply
  • Demolitions Expert - A rifleman in each Gruppe of 1. Zug will be designated as the Explosives expert, and should be equiped, in addition to their standard load as a rifleman, with enough explosives to destroy enemy weapons emplacements
  • Grenadier - A rifleman in each Gruppe 1. Zug will be designated as the grenadier, and should be equiped, in addition to their standard load asa rifleman, with enough grenades to operate effectively as the grenadier on behalf of their Gruppe
  • Staff personnel -  Any Unit Staff personnel attached to the 1. Zug for the operation on Crete should provide proper documentation and administration for the unit, prior to the start of their Operation. Attendance should be taken and recorded.

IV. SUSTAINMENT

a. Logistics and Resupply: 
Resupply on ammunition and expendable equipment will be provided on request from the Zug Fuhrer by friendly logistics forces using supply trucks. Consider the roads available and the terrain, which may impede the speed at which 1. Zug can be resupplied.  Consider also the security of the area which requires resupply.   Soldiers should assume that re-supply is unavailable, and should be prepared for prolonged combat without resupply

b. Support:
Limited support will be provided by adjacent friendly forces.  Air Support will be available in the form of JU-87, and can be utilized sparingly by the Zug Fuhrer per the mission needs.  Consider Indirect Fire support unavailable for this operation

V. COMMAND AND SIGNAL

a. Command

(1) Location of the Commander:
For the duration of the operation beginning at 1730, the commander will be on post, coordinating mission efforts with friendly forces. The Zug Fuhrer, in the grade of Leutnant will lead the Zug on the ground.

b. Signal:
The Zug Fuhrer should be equipped with a Radio to communicate with command, and support elements. Members of 1.Zug will not have radio equipment, and will have to rely on vocal guidance from their first line-leadership in order to accomplish the mission.

I. SITUATION

a. Area of Interest: The Grecian Island of Crete

b. Area of Operations: Area encompassing grid coordinates 0501-0502, Including the central Flat-lands surrounding the capitol City of Heraklion, The Maleme Airfield, and the Villiage of Chania.

     (1) Terrain
  • Observation and Fields of Fire:
    The AO Consists of mostly flat, farm land with sparsely spread wooded areas on the northern and southern flanks. Roadways are accessible to both friendly and enemy troops to allow for quick movement of QRF within the AO. Visibility within this terrain is wide and in excess of 100m.  This will slow movement, as friendly forces need to be considerate of how visible they will be to potential enemy forces in the area. Fields of fire will be wide and should provide a security concern.
  • Avenues of Approach:
    The Maleme Airfield, and defenses surrounding the northern approach of Heraklion are decisive pieces of terrain crucial for the Grecian defense of crete, and will be well defended with limited avenues of approach. Erste Group will best use the terrain available to exploit weaknesses in these defenses. 
  • Key and Decisive Terrain:
    The Flatlands surrounding Heraklion are the last piece of terrain which must be secured before the assault on the city itself. The Airfield of Maleme must be secured to allow for easier resupply of friendly troops, and for reinforcement before the assault on the capitol is to begin. These areas must be successfully secured in order to advance our mission on Crete. 
  • Obstacles:
    Obstacles will include man-made structures and debris.
  • Cover and Concealment:
    Cover is limited to large trees and rocks, as well as any man-made structures and buildings which can be re-purposed. Enemy forces have more established cover and concealment from their defensive positions, which will be encountered.

c. Enemy forces: Enemy forces are mixed contingents of both British and Grecian Armies.

  • Recent Activities
    Enemy forces have been mounting a defense of their island home. Civilians have been known to be uncooperative with friendly forces, and trained enemies are in some cases resorting to guerrilla-style warfare.  The Grecian forces are mounting a desperate defense in last attempts to keep friendly forces out of the capitol city.
  • Strength
    Enemy strength on the island of Crete is fading.  They still maintain control of the large population and economic centers on the island. There are a large number of friendly forces on Crete, but capture of the Maleme Airfield will allow for reinforcement of friendly territory.

  • Composition/Disposition
    Enemy forces are composed to no-more than conventional land forces, and mostly small-arms. They do not have naval or air support. Enemy soldiers generally operate in small squad sized elements in attempts to easily conceal their movements from us.  We expect greater numbers and equipment defending Maleme Airfield and a few key defensive positions guarding the northern approach to Heraklion.

II. MISSION
Elements from Erste Zug, Erste Kompanie, Infanterie-Regiment Nr. 1, 1. Infanterie-Division will conduct operations in the central flat lands of the Island of Crete encompassing the regions of grid coordinates 0501-0502 to destroy and disrupt enemy troops and assets in the region

The Platoon will then proceed, under the leadership of the Zug Fuhrer from Fort Repentance to the first Objective, The Maleme Airfield

The Operation will conclude with the Zug securing the final objective, or defensive positions on the Northern outskirts of Heraklion

c. Tasks to Subordinate Units and Staff:

(General) Ensure all soldiers are properly equipped for extended time in the field. Double check Weapons, Grenades, and Ammunition

  • Medical Personnel - Attached medical personnel will provide on-site care to soldiers of 1.Zug. Ensure medical personnel are properly equiped with enough supplies to sustain prolonged conflict in the field without resupply

    Fort Repentance and Fort Ironmask have limited avenues of approach and attack from the ground. These will Likely be well defended.
  • Key and Decisive Terrain:
    The central highlands and forts protect the main population centers of crete, and offer the next largest challenge in the mission of Crete. Securing these areas, will provide security and allow for an easier flow of supplies to friendly forces on the northern half of the island. Occupation of the central highlands will also provide a strong-hold point for launching the inevitable assault into the capitol
  • Obstacles:
    Obstacles will include steep terrain and vegetation. In some areas, visibility will be limited to less than 50m.
  • Cover and Concealment:
    Cover is limited to large trees and rocks surrounding the AO. Enemy forces have more established cover and concealment from their defensive positions, which will be encountered.

c. Enemy forces: Enemy forces are mixed contingents of both British and Grecian Armies.

Information & Application / The East Prussian Infantry (Overview)

Wilkommen!
The East Prussian Infantry was formed in December 2010 for the purpose of accurately representing historic military structure and tactics to the best of our ability within the gaming universe, while maintaining a social-community style atmosphere. Our unit and family has grown over the years, and we've had the opportunity to educate many not only on game-play, but on the tactics and structure of a military unit of the era. We've found that recreating historical structure in a video-game attracts a more mature crowd, and makes game-play a little more challenging. From our humble beginnings as a Prussian line-company practicing Napoleonic-era battle doctrine to subject-matter experts on German small-unit infantry practices on the field during WWII, The East Prussian Infantry is a one-of-a-kind, organized, professional group of historians reenactors, and gamers using 21st century gaming as a way to entertain and educate. Onward, to victory!  Für das Vaterland!

A Long, Proud History
Originally established as a Prussian Infantry regiment set in the Napoleonic-era, for over 6 years, the East Prussian Infantry served as a professional line-unit well-versed in historically accurate battle doctrine, capable of fielding mass formations of soldiers, each fully understanding his or her duty and role.  What the East Prussian Infantry was able to achieve took much teamwork and enthusiasm from the many who participated over the years. In 2017, the East Prussian Infantry sought a new challenge, and decided to bring the world of historical structure, tactics, discipline, and professionalism into the gaming universe of ARMA III.


The EPI - 2012



Expectations

Whether as a recruit, or a full-fledged soldier, our members are expected to do the following:

✠ Learn and follow the Code of Conduct

✠ Learn, and become proficient in basic Tactics and Skills

✠ Be relatively active, attend training when possible, and alert your squad leader if you are unable to participate or are taking an extended leave.

✠ Display humility, respect, and motivation.

Those who can do these four things will find themselves a good match for the EPI, and will be prime candidates for promotion should they be proficient and willing to take on leadership roles.
Code of Conduct

As general guidelines, members are to practice the following points:
a more detailed outline of our code of conduct can be found Here!

1. Be respectful to everyone. This includes your comrades in the 1st, members of other regiments, public players, admins, officers, non-commissioned officers, and people on the forums.

2. Conduct yourself in a professional and mature manner. This means that cursing, glitching, trolling, flaming, and name calling or other forms of fighting are not allowed. This is especially important when we are in events or on a public server.

3. Follow Orders. It is paramount for the survival of the regiment that all orders given by our Offiziere and Unteroffizieren are followed to the letter and without question or argument. There is a time and place to discuss tactics and whether or not certain orders should be given or not. Directly after the order is given is not one of those times. This also applies to the Rules laid out by admins on their servers. We respect the right of admins to run their servers.

4. Do not retaliate. Regardless of the situation, if something is done to you (ie Teamkill, insult, etc) you are not to retaliate! Instead, you are to inform an officer or admin and report the problem. Anyone found retaliating will be dealt with in the same manner as the original offender.







RANK STRUCTURE
of the German rifle company



Schutzen


Unteroffiziere


Offiziere




-No Rank Insignia-




Rekrut (RKT):
Upon enlisting in the EPI, new members will be granted the title of Rekrut, until successful completion of the Schutze Basic Training Course. This basic course will provide the new member with a basic understanding of the gameplay Mechanics of ARMA, as well as the role of the rifleman in the rifle squad. New Rekruts will also be given instruction on the structure of the infantry platoon, and basic tactics.





Obergefreiter (OGFR) / Stabsgefreiter (SGFR):
An Obergefreiter or StabsGefreiter is  a Gefreiter who has chosen to pursue a path of leadership within the EPI. These are successful graduates of the Team leaders course (TLC)and show an understanding of how to take care of not only themselves, but others on the field.  They are reliable and can be called on by the Unteroffizer to lead a detachment from the squad. They know how formations are to be applied and when to use them. They understand the operation as well as how to coordinate and communicate. In the event that the Unteroffizier has been killed, an Obergefreiter is able to jump into action and assume command of the squad without any loss of momentum.

The StabsGefreiter title is assigned to a soldier of the same pay-grade who has been assigned to an administrative duty within the EPI. Many times this involves maintenence of personnel records, ensuring communication lines are flowing, and assisting in new Rekrut in-processing. 







Leutnant (LT):
The Leutnant is the lowest commissioned officer within the german army, and serve as platoon leaders. They are ultimately responsible to their company commander for their platoon, administratively. They process awards and promotions for soldiers within their platoon. Ultimately,  they assume command of their platoon within the field, through the use of their Feldwebel and Unteroffizieren.



Schutze (SHZ):
Graduation of the Basic Schutze course comes with a promotion to Schutze, the basic rifleman and lowest official rank in the EPI. Schutzen are expected to follow our code of conduct and carry out the orders of superiors. They act as professional representatives of the EPI. They work to expand their knowledge and ability in game, tactically and technically.




Unteroffizier (UFFZ):
Unteroffiziere are the Squad leaders within the rifle platoon. These sergeants are responsible for effectively maneuvering using formations and employing the assets of their squad to close and destroy the enemy in order to accomplish the mission, while coordinating with their Platoon's Feldwebel and peer squad leaders. They can communicate orders both with their squad and can coordinate movement and attacks with the other rifle squads. Unteroffiziere are responsible for maintaining discipline and combat effectiveness of their squad. They resolve issues on the squad level and are proficient in both giving and receiving orders. They are expected to interact with the members of their squad and make sure that all are fully functional. Unteroffiziere are the true leaders of the EPI



 
Oberleutnant (OLT):

An Oberleutnant is a seasoned Leutnant who can either fill the billet as a platoon leader, or has been selected to serve as the Executive Officer (XO) of the Company.  The executive officer's duties are mostly administrative, coordinating training for the company, and maintaining a high level of readiness. The Stabsgefreiteren within the company work as clerks with the executive officer  In the field, an Oberleutnant serves as an assistant to the commander, and steps in to lead the company in his absence. 




Oberschutze (OSHZ):
Oberschutzen are experienced soldiers. Members who have proven that they understand the role of the rifleman on the field, and can use this effectively. They understand the formations used, and can efficiently maneuver and communicate as an effective member of the squad.







Feldwebel (FW):
The Feldwebel is the senior-most NCO in the Platoon, responsible to the Platoon Leader (Leutnant), and a coordinator on the field. The Feldwebel uses his subbordinate squads to fufill orders and successfully accomplish the mission. He resolves issues in the platoon, which cannot be handled by the Unteroffizeren. He acts as a communication link between the officers and the enlisted personnel. He ensures that his platoon maintains a high level of readiness, and assists in maintaining accountability. He recommends awards and promotions to the Leutnant for members of the platoon.






Hauptmann (HPT):
The Hauptmann is the commander of the rifle company, and assumes command on the field. He is ultimately responsible for everything the company does or fails to do to his battalion commander, and makes command decisions on behalf of the company. He uses his executive officer and platoon leaders to ensure training is coordinated and the soldiers are fully functioning and capable. He coordinates with outside support on the field and issues orders to his platoon leaders to most efficiently close and destroy the enemy.





Gefreiter (GFR):
Gefreiteren in the EPI compose the bulk of the force. These soldiers are experts in their craft, fall seamlessly into the organization and are the ideal rifleman. They understand individual soldier tasks, and look out for one another. They represent the EPI on and off the field. At this point in their military career, Gefreiteren are free to begin earning certifications on other weaponry, and learn how to expand their knowledge beyond that of the rifle. Medics, Radio operators, and Machine Gunners are just a few examples of necessary assets during battle, and Gefreiteren are the reliable soldiers who take the initiative to learn and fill these roles.  These soldiers demonstrate the utmost level of professionalism, and provide guidance for new members










Hauptfeldwebel (HFW):
The senior-most NCO in a company, responsible for coordinating the movement and use of the rifle platoons within the company. He maintains discipline within the company, and acts as the right-hand man and a communication link between the enlisted men of the company and the Hauptmann.








OUR ORGANIZATION



Our Unit
There are many opportunities within the East Prussian Infantry to provide members with an understanding of military history of the era, in a social, mature atmosphere. Here you will find some basic information on our unit regarding our event times, and references to our manuals, not only from WWII, but those that have been compiled from the Napoleonic-Era / American Civil War, which have been written and adapted for use in-game over many years.  We invite you to participate with us, and feel free to ask questions!

UNDERSTANDING THE STRUCTURE OF THE RIFLE COMPANY

Organization of the Company

The Company is the smallest unit to complete itself, and should be able to field at least 40 men rank-and-file. For this purpose, given an average attendance rate of 50-66% for any given event, at least 80 active members should be maintained on paper. The unit is ran at the company-level by the Hauptmann (Captain) and HauptFeldwebel (1st Sergeant).

Each company is divided into platoons, termed "Zug." Ideally, each Zug should be able to field 20 soldiers rank and file, in addition to one Officer (a LT or OLT) who is designated the Platoon Leader, a ranking Feldwebel, who is designated the Platoon Sergeant. Each Platoon should consist of at least 2, 10 man rifle squads called a "Gruppe", each of which are led by an Unteroffizier

Thus, the minimum strength Company comprised of two Zug shall include:
1 Hauptmann - Company Commander
1 Oberleutnant - Company Executive Officer
1 Hauptfeldwebel - Company 1st Sergeant
2 Leutnants - Each overseeing a Zug
2 Feldwebels - Each assigned to a Zug
4 Unteroffiziere - Min. 2 in each Zug assigned as squad leaders
4-8 Obergefreiteren/Stabsgefreiteren - 2~4 in each Zug, NCOs capable of serving as team/detachment leaders and File closers
4 MG Schutzen - Min. 1 per squad, who is responsible for the MG assigned to each squad
32+ Schutzen - 16+ in each Zug

Also included may be:
 Medics, Radio Operators, Anti-Tank soldiers


Thus, a full strength Company on paper shall be comprised of no less than 44-52 men in total. The Company's field strength will generally be only 50-66% of its strength on paper for any given event, accounting for average attendance. Should the Company maintain a high level of activity and attendance, the number of men required to maintain a full strength Company on paper may be lower than prescribed above.

Mark your calendar for Saturday July 11, 2015!

At 8pm EDT/EST, we'll be participating in a Throwback Mount & Musket Linebattle event with other members of the Prussian Army and Hardcore Linebattle.


Mount&Musket was the Warband Modification that served as a precursor to the Mount&Blade: Napoleonic Wars expansion.  Our regiment was very active in the Mount&Musket community prior to the release of NW, so this will be a lot of fun for our older veterans. However, for those of you who haven't played MM, you're going to get to experience what a linebattle was like in the early days. A good many of us are quite excited for this event!  Invite your friends and the reservists. Everyone will want to participate!

It's a free download, and is installed in the same way as every other Warband Modification.  If you do not already have this mod installed, I would encourage you to make an effort to download it, so that you can participate on the 11th!  Download links can be found here:
