+++++++++++++BEGINS+++++++++++++

Sit EF
Coy sized element of the AAF, operating in the area SW of MOLOS. They have barricaded MOLOS after our push on the Airfield. AAF toops are usually armed with Soviet era weaponry of a similar capability to our own. They are also using Soviet style AT and MANPAD launchers. Air defences consisting of both static and mobile guns are believed to be in the area. The troops in the area are motorised and make use of troop transport trucks. There will be little to no enemy air threat due to the air defence system of our carrier. Enemy morale is believed to be high despite our recent attack on the airfield. The intent of the enemy is to occupy the town of MOLOS, and to defend surrounding area against incursions.
Latest intel also indicate that the Coy operation around MOLOS are being replaced and therefor it is believed that only a section sized force is active inside MOLOS
