The Great Raid
30th January, 1945, Philippines
The Japanese military is being forced back on all fronts, and it is finally time for General Macarthur to keep his promise, and return to the Philippines. Operation Musketeer has been executed, and American forces have made good ground after the initial invasion. However, we are presented with a problem. Between us and Cabanatuan City is a prison camp, with an unknown amount of allied personnel inside. High command fears that the Japanese will execute the prisoners if we get too close. Therefore they must be rescued before this can happen, this will be your tasking. The camp itself is believed to be large, however actual intelligence on it's layout it none existent. So it is recommended that you perform recon before attempting anything. To the east is the region's main airfield, and it is believed to be housing multiple "Zero" fighters. In addition, if you are to face any QRFs they will most likely originate from there. "Bloody Ridge" is believed to hold a small artillery encampment. It may be worth your time to attempt to disable these guns before your assault on the prison, for obvious reasons. The enemy's strength in the region should be relatively minor, consisting mainly of light infantry in and around villages and fortifications. However you should expect some patrols in and around the jungle, especially on the paths. There will be stronger forces moving south through the region however. They will be heading for the front lines, and may pass you as you carry out your orders. These forces will most likely contain some armoured elements, so it is recommended that you steer clear where possible. Due to the sensitive nature of this assignment, it is recommended that you make every effort to keep your presence a secret, for as long you deem possible.
