Abkhazian forces pushed south of the Inguri River and are now occupying Senaki, Poti, Zugdidi and surrounding areas.  

Three platoons of US special forces, under the callsign TALON, are moving in "light and fast"  just north of Senaki, taking advantage of a weak point in enemy lines.  The goal: to capture a regional high-point on Eki Mountain.  From this vantage point,  TALON will have a commanding view of the enemy positions to the north, west and south.

Boar 21/22 and Boar 27/28 will be providing support for TALON as they gain a foothold on Eki Mountain.  Once in position, TALON will be calling in air and artillery strikes on enemy positions across the valley.

A CIA unit, callsign "PROPHET", will be providing real-time intel to TALON based on enemy radio chatter intercepts and drone recon.

VAPOR 51 & 61 (2xF-117A) will be tasked with taking out the bridges along the Inguri River, taking away the Abkhazians ability to reinforce from the north.  

BONE 71 (B1-B) will be tasked with pummeling the Eki Mountain summit defenses and communications towers just prior to TALON's arrival.  

UZI 41 & 42 (2xAH-64D) out of Kutaisi AB, will work on the armored units along the Forward Edge of Battle Area (FEBA) near Senaki.
