November 12th 2016

0500hrs – Power across the entire UK is disrupted; emergency investigation shows that all of the UK’s power grid has been victim to a state sponsored cyber attack. The UK has gone dark, other than any civil or military installations that have their own power source.

0516hrs – All the major mobile networks and Wifi are zeroed across the UK.

0530hrs – Hundreds of unidentified ships land on the East coast of Anglia.

0537hrs – More unidentified ships land on the West coast of Liverpool. Southport and Blackpool.

0600hrs – All UK and US air support is tangled up in immediate dogfights when scrambled and AA missile systems set up on the ground have made a web of death around many of the airfields. The fog of war is making it very difficult to mobilise the UK military and street-to-street firefights are now commonplace across most major cities. The armed Police have been utterly overwhelmed and are unable to retaliate in any sizeable number.

0700hrs – Paratroopers and helicopters have touched down after being launched from fleets off the North coast of Scotland. Agents have also stunned the British Navy with a virus that has corrupted their software and made the hardware reboot on a loop.

0710hrs – The UK has been paralysed in just over 2hrs with over 100,000 unknown troops landed and more are landing with every minute. Europe is unreachable, falling victim to strategic missile attacks on major military installations. At this time the UK has no idea if a ground war has begun.

0727hrs — It is rumoured that the troops appearing across the UK have been seen with Russian flags.

0750hrs – The UK Military finally gets over the initial shock and begins organising itself though its Bowman communications and Skynet 5 is not operational at this time. It is officially announced that the UK has been invaded by Russia.

Our story takes us to Epping Forest and a small staging area of 2 units of British troops and civilians that have managed to get armed from the Enfield Armory. The British troops have acquired a number of AA weapons and have set up a staging area. For a time the Russians ignored this area as a number of tanks and armoured attack vehicles have started to put up very strong resistance on the M25 and M11. The anti-air operation of this staging area has become vital to the success of the Armour battles taking place on the main roads and have already knocked out a dozen Russian aircraft.

1200hrs – The military unit operators have split into 2 call sign groups, Alpha and Bravo. As most of them don’t know each other they have opted to simple call signs. The third unit is made up of civilians, all of which have had some kind of military service and taken the call sign Delta. They are taking it in turns to be responsible for manning the AA equipment, perimeter security and manning the communications. The guys know if they can keep this threat operational for 24hrs, the rest of the UK forces around them may have a chance to break out.


The UK forces continued to fire their AA weapons regularly and on target for the full 24 hours, however, both sides became aware of each others’ FOBs and both have relocated them. However, unknown to both sides, both have managed to get resupplies with men and equipment. The Russian command is now aware that the force he is fighting against is a mixture of serving and ex soldiers who are fighting and operating in a very unconventional manner. Now the Russians have a better idea of their enemy, the fighting will become more organic and less rigid. The UK commander has also reached the same conclusion and for now will continue doing what they are doing very well. As long as the Milans can get supplied, he will keep firing them.


The Russians have set up a large Staging Area and begun to mass equipment and men, using the motorways to move supplies around quickly. They must hold out for another 24 hours. The main landings have already begun and the fight on the M25 has come to an end with the Russians overwhelming the old hardware fielded by the UK forces. Yet, this whole operation still balances on a knife-edge. The success of the UK annex by the Russian Federation (RF) doesn’t just hinge on the landings, but the Government buildings must also be taken and London must fall.

With a similar initial attack across Europe, their response is still one of shock and preparation for their own invasions, and so far has not been one of action outside of their own countries. Europe was not part of the RF plan at this stage and the UK stands alone.

Russian troops will operate from a major FOB and it will be out of game the whole Milsim
2 units of Gorka VDV (Call sign Vulture and Eagle)
1 large unit of EMR conscript (Heron)

UK troops will operate from a number of small CPs in the field for the full 24 hours.
