Mission Briefing - 99 Luftballon

The political situation in Grand Brexitia has gone from bad to worse.  In large areas of the nation the public services have all but ceased to operate.  The populace has blamed the USA and EC for their economic and political woes, the old government has fallen, frightening scenes of mob violence and murder in the streets of Grand Brexitia have been splashed across the TV screens across the world.  The footage of the US Embassy burning has brought the woes of GB to the US TV audience.  The acting GB Prime Minister, Breta Offoute, has with immediate effect withdrawn Grand Brexitia from NATO and ordered the US to remove all it’s personal from the country.  While negotiations on the timetable on the US exit from Grand Brexitia has bogged down in incriminations and rhetoric the people took it into their own hands and invaded the US Airbases.
The roadblock

Following an escalation of violence at the Mildewhall Airbase where three US servicemen and fifteen protesters were killed NATO HQ in Virginia has ordered that Mildewhall Airbase be evacuated and dismantled.    With the runways covered in protester's tents the US Army has decided to truck out it sensitive equipment.  The routes these trucks will take are secret.

US Commander – Convoy MH-032
You, Staff Sergeant Hardy Harr, will escort one M977 HEMTT loaded with a cargo of Hellfire missiles from the Mildewhall Airbase to Portswich.  You have been given two HUMVEES (which have been in storage since the first Gulf War), one HEMTT, one G-Wagon, four drivers, five air force military police, one pilot (possibly due to a clerical error), two US government agents and one Brexitia policeman.  Your heavy weapons do not have ammunition.

Unfortunately, there has been a leak.  While driving down a country road you have driven into a protest.  The government agent and the Brexitia policeman have approached the crowd to negotiate passage.

The convoy has been stopped by a crowd, the crowd seems to be armed with shotguns and pistols.  The crowd is chanting, “Badgers are people too!” and “Trees are people too!”  Confused the policeman and the government agent have exited the G-Wagon and gone to talk to the crowd.

Opposition only:
Brexitia Republican Army
You are a high-ranking SAS deserter, Mike Krotch known as “Itchy” to your mates, who left the SAS with his buddies during the “month of tumult”, taking your weapons with you.  You joined the Brexitia Republican Army, hoping to see the end to the Royals who seemed to have taken over the country with their puppet Prime Minister Breta Offoute.  A month ago your crew managed to steal an Apache helicopter.  Your commander has asked you to procure ammunition for the helicopter.  Putting out feelers you managed to get info from an informer in the Mildewhall Air Base.  He has given you the route of a truck carrying a cargo of Hellfire missile.  Your man in a local green group, “Badgers Are People Too” has riled the environmentalists to stage a protest at a construction site along the route the US Army truck will take.  He has organized the BAPT to make a road block across the road with their cars.  And has convinced them that unless they are armed the badgers and trees will all be destroyed.

You are a group of SAS (well 3 of you is a group!) with a few “Home Guard” wannabees (from a Russian airsoft enactment group).  Your plan was to steal a truck at the construction site, but after finding the distributor caps were missing you sent a group of wannabees off to steal a truck to drive behind the US convoy to trap them in an avenue of trees.  So far, they have not returned, and you suspect they stopped at the local pub down the lane.

To replace the truck you have commandeered a front-end loader.  You also have a 4x4 BMW and car to escape in.  If you lose the “Home Guard” you probably think that would be a bonus on top of stealing the Hellfires.
