Bandar Abbas has been taken but the Iranian forces are not sitting idle.
Advanced USMC units have been instructed to setup a blocking position approximately 45nm NE of Abbas on the main road from Kernan. Barely a platoon strength tank unit and some supporting IFVs.
Drones have picked up movement headed their way and strike command has ordered CAS aircraft airborne.
WAYPOINT 3 - Approximate target area. Fly to this waypoint and search for inbound enemy armored units.
No tanker support - no need since the flight distance is short.
