Platoon Inspection

Ready for Action
Every week the detachment faces its enemies in battle in various circumstances. In this monthly series you will be introduced to a short summary of one of the up to four battles LDDK has faced during last month. Gear up and prepare to dive in battle!

On 31 November 2014 at 2100hrs, Local Defence Detachment Kyllikki, positioned at the airbase of wintry Thirsk, faced the immediate threat of getting surrounded by the enemy and had to make its way to an extraction point nearby in Ykspihlaja. The Reconnaissance Patrol took point, and without hesitation the detachment was on the move.

Shortly after leaving the airbase, the spearhead of the detachment made contact with the enemy. It took only a few minutes before the enemy had to deal with full force of LDDK, when the main battle tank Leopard 2A4 engaged in battle.

Soon after the battle had started, commanding officer ylil Psykoisi gave an order to continue the attack through the enemy lines. Half of the detachment remained still and kept the enemy engaged in battle, while the second half of LDDK forces flanked the opposing forces’ defensive positions.

The extraction point in Ykspihlaja was reached, but not without casualties. The enemy performed a counter-attack with two T-72 tanks, and the remaining members of LDDK had to fight the enemy to the last man.

LDDK's New Order of Battle
Following the adaption of ACE 2, LDD Kyllikki has refined its order of battle to better support the needs of modern warfare.

The newly-reformed detachment comprises four units. The HQ and Support Squad, the Recon Team, the Jaeger Squad with the Heavy Weapons Team and the Mechanized Jaeger Squad reinforced by the Armored Squad are the backbone of the LDDK platoon.

The new HQ and Support Squad provides the detachment with the lifeblood of combat – munitions, medical supplies and repair services – and will lead the elements in the heat of battle. The unit is under personal direction of the platoon commander, ylil Psykoisi.

The Reconnaissance Team consists of highly trained LDDK veterans and is led by kers Sahuri. Providing the platoon with much needed intelligence, the team is also capable of hampering enemy supply lines with surgical precision and providing sniper fire where it is needed most.

The 1st Unit consists of two elements: the Jaeger Squad and the Heavy Weapons Team. The two combine to create a unit that can accomplish any task required and can clear out enemy presence from an entire town if need be. Led by vänr Sami, the unit will destroy all enemy objects in its way, whether infantry or armored.

The 2nd Unit is the mailed fist of the detachment. The Mechanized Jaeger Squad is supported by the Armored Squad with the platoon's heaviest equipment and can really pack a punch. You will find the 2nd Unit, led by ylik Raunhofer, in the thick of the battle cutting through enemy lines like a hot knife through butter.
