I can supply boots on the ground for B. With Broderick, he's got (as mentioned previously in chat) 4 16-man troops which are then split into 3 patrols of 4 men. I guess maybe 2 troops could be deployed in response to this, in which Robert could then join up with the team that Brody would be leading?

Could be a CIA/ MI6 liason or spook?

Would it be a hacker for the OPFOR or US/ UK/ AUS, etc?

Oh, that would be interesting.

Definitely could be, especially with the cartel wanting more power. What's a better way than cyberwarfare?

working on thinking of a character that would either be one of the rescuers or maybe one who is on the cruiseliner  :D  Anyone have suggestions or ideas?

Could do with some of the current team positions being filled?

Maybe already on the cruiseliner, could be a civilian/ spy or something as we need more of them and seeing as they are after HVTs, a spy or someone in politics could be a potential target.

Could happen at Fort Bragg, could happen at Hereford or the SF training center in Australia, tbh, could be anywhere we'd like it to be.

We could make it so that two JT Ops are going on at the same time at different locations, as we've now got a large influx of new characters coming in.

Alright, I can't think of anything witty to say. But I was going to start this thread so that the new arrivals to our board can jump on in if they have not been deployed on the Op already.

It's going to be happening at Fort Bragg.

Anyone got ideas?

I'm going to be throwing the Germans in on this one, haha!

Probably should throw up a sign-up for that.

Maybe it doesn't have to be in the same location, as the troops could be re-routed for the second phase later on?

Sounds like a good idea to me ! They'd take them hostage covering the fact that it's only  key people they are after - thus making the SF play chess with a winning opponent sort of situation

So, general consensus seems to be the cruiseliner  :CH

I guess what's next is deciding how big this cruiseliner is exactly - how long the journey's going to be and whatnot. Being it a one month/ two month/ etc. cruise would mean that the vessel's going to be pretty huge and the OPFOR going to be numerous.

Of course, the OPFOR could have blended in initially with the crew and such, meaning nothing seemed out of the ordinary for a couple of weeks as they did their recon of the passengers. Maybe they've taken the whole ship hostage just for a couple of VIP/ HVTs?
