ORDER OF CAMPAIGN OPERATIONS:
>Operation Iron Sky
-EDF forces will secure the borders of the Griffin Kingdom by launching an immediate blockade that cuts off the Griffin Kingdom from the rest of the world. No airships, ground forces, planes, cars, boats, ships, or any other means of transportation will be permitted to enter or leave the Griffin Kingdom except by special allowance. EDF Forces will seize control of the skies, ground, and seas by means of overwhelming numbers, firepower, and superior tactics. EDF F.O.Bs and outposts will be built along the newly captured and militarized border of the Kingdom as well.

>Operation Black Out
-EDF Forces in conjunction with the U.E.S.F will be jamming all satellite communications going into or out of the Griffin Kingdom that are not EDF designated. This will be accomplished by means of satellite reprogramming or destroying in low Equis orbit as well as by means of Cyber Warfare. Phone lines, radio towers, or any other ground based means of getting news into or out of the region will be jammed or stopped. EDF Forces are to attempt to seize control of radio towers or communication stations in the Griffin Kingdom to ultimately accomplish this operation.

>Operation Warhammer II
-EDF Ground and Armored Forces will commence their primary assaults on IGA forces all throughout the Kingdom. Designated targets are as follows:
>IGA Bases
>IGA Fortresses
>IGA F.O.Bs
>IGA Outposts
>IGA Heavy Weapon Emplacements
>IGA Ground Forces
>Griffin Infrastructure (Factories, Chemical Plants, Propaganda Stations)
Once all or many of these vital means of resisting have been either destroyed or taken by force the EDF will move to take and liberate Griffin cities, towns, and villages from the IGA's oppressive rule. This operation is the primary part of the Campaign that will take the longest and is estimated to cost the EDF and its allies the most lives. We must fight hard and drive the enemy back to the breaking point on their own playing field. Thanks to Meril's propaganda the IGA and some citizens will fight us hard to the bitter end. Fighting with strength, honor, and determination will result in the EDF obtaining victories for the Greater Good.

>(Sub)-Operation Longshot
-This Sub-Operation will be the long range and constant shelling of enemy forces dug into emplacements or bases that are much to difficult or impossible to take with any reasonable amount of Ground Forces or by use of Special Ops. Enemy locations marked for bombardment will be based off of the following system:
>Fire Mission Designation ECHO (50 MM - 105 MM Shelling)
>Fire Mission Designation DELTA (60 MM - 125 MM Shelling)
>Fire Mission Designation CHARLIE (150 MM - 200 MM Shelling)
>Fire Mission Designation BRAVO (300 MM - 400 MM Shelling)
>Fire Mission Designation ALPHA (400 MM - 900 MM Shelling)
The use of ICBM's, M.O.A.Bs, Arcane Mega-spell Missiles, Sub-Atomic Warheads, and Orbital Weapons are authorized only by General Starlight himself after approval from the Canterlot Council and the Four Princess of Equestria.

>Operation Armageddon
-This will be the final push to destroy anything left of the IGA and the attempt to take Meril the Grey into custody. Use of class "X" ground based weapons have been pre-authorized in accordance with the EDF Codex Article 5, Section 10, paragraph 4. If Meril cannot be taken in by any means then she is to be neutralized by any means necessary outside of nuclear force. All EDF combat branches will take part in this operation as it will involve taking the capital city of Gryphus where her place is. It will be heavily armed, armored, and bristling with weapons of all sorts. It is proposed that if Meril has not used any WMDs at this point in the Campaign to win that she will. All EDF troops will be issued radiation pills and lead-lined armor for this final operation and mission. Brothers and sisters of the EDF! We have made it this far and have come a long way from home and comfort. Steel your hearts and ready yourselves for the maelstrom of battle that is to come. This final fight will be the fiery crucible that tests us all. Fight with all your might and strike down your foes without mercy! Show them the true might of the EDF and the Greater Good!

>Operation Sundown
-EDF Forces have destroyed the IGA and any hostiles in the region. We will now focus on helping to maintain order in the Kingdom while it is rebuilt. Equitarian efforts and relief groups/organizations will be let into the Kingdom to assist in the rebuilding of the Griffin Kingdom.

NOTE: ((If at any point during this Campaign I find anyone to be cheating, being OP, treating others with disrespect, or being a nuisance overall to the community and its fellow members I will have the violator removed from the Campaign for the rest of its duration and, if need be, banned from the community itself.

IMPORTANT BACKSTORY INFORMATION

The cause of the second largest war on Equis involving multiple Countries, Kingdoms, and Empires was due to the greed and lust for power from one individual. This individual was a female Griffin by the official name of Merli the Grey. Close to one year ago (in canon time) she had usurped the old Griffin King and taken his throne by force, thereby proclaiming herself as the new ruler of the Griffin Kingdom and all its territories. For the first few months in her rule of power all was well in the Kingdom and not much had changed...but it began to once she became greedy for more riches, influence, and territory. In taking the throne from the old King and Royal family before her she had also made quite a few enemies throughout the land. It was for these reasons that she became more ruthless and determined to rule her Kingdom with an iron talon.

However, there was a problem with this. With her Kingdom being a part of the Equis World Council as well as the EDF she could not act freely and use the military as she wished to. So for these reasons on March the 15th of 2016 she broke the Griffin Kingdom off from the Equis World Council and removed it as the 5th Chapter of the EDF. She did however, keep all of the EDF tech and weapons up to that point in time that was granted. With her Kingdom now broken off from the prying and judging eyes of the world community she could now rule as she pleased. From the ashes of the EDF came a new military for the Griffin Kingdom known as the Imperial Griffin Army or IGA. This military force would be very powerful and formidable as it wielded most of the tech and weapons the EDF had used up to this point. She swept through her country killing off or imprisoning those that had openly opposed her before. New Royal Decrees were issued that made it illegal to speak out against the crown or resist the ruling of her new military Generals and Commanders. Within a period of 4 months the Kingdom was completely subjugated and silenced by her. Those that rose up to fight back were quickly killed and all resistance was met with a swift crushing iron boot. To maintain the money and trade for her country she made farmers grow drugs on their farms and in some cases she even sold off citizens she did not particularly like on the Black Market. This, in conjunction with her selling off some EDF tech and other things got her more of the money she wanted. She was pleased for a season but again came the feeling that it was not enough. She wanted not just the Griffin Kingdom to rule....she wanted the world.

To rule the world you first must have a strong Kingdom or "home base." This much Merle knew and so she set about fortifying and building up the military infrastructure of the Griffin Kingdom. New outposts and F.O.Bs were built on or into mountains and valleys and other defenses like flak guns and artillery point defenses were constructed as well. These as well as massive shielding arrays and missile defenses were built using slave labor and the labor of the military. Finally, after 3 months of constant building most of what she was looking to put in place was built. An outright assault on Equis would be stupid as she knew that the Equestrian 1st Chapter of the EDF led by General Starlight would rally the other nations and Empires to bring a swift end to that. She would need to test her power first. Merli began this by sending military forces to test and threaten the borders of other neighboring countries like Yackyackistan and the Crystal Empire. Next she tried farther targets like the Lunar Changeling Empire. All of these military "drills" caught the attention of the world and brought tensions high.

In the months her Imperial Griffin Army had been out of the EDF she noticed that her tech was not as much on par with the updated and more powerful weapons and tech of the world EDF. E-Tech as well as key scientists working for those in the EDF were surpassing her own and she did not like this.....not one bit. She would have her top tactical advisers come up with a strike plan on how to get a hold of new E-Tech and EDF blueprints for her own Kingdom, but this would take some time and serious planning. Meanwhile, General Starlight was growing more and more wary of the Griffins and Merli with each day that passed. He had heard rumors that there were terrible things going on in the Griffin Kingdom for some of his more "exotic" sources and that they were planning for something big. This did not sit well with him and so in order to see for himself he planned and launched a very covert Recon Operation known only as Spyglass. This recon operation confirmed his worst fears. The IGA were extorting, abusing, and killing civilians in villages and cities that did not comply with Merli's commands and rulings. The IGA had also built many bases, outposts, and heavy gun defenses around the northern and eastern region of the Kingdom as well. This information was directly relayed to Princess Luna, who was overseeing the operation, and from there sent to Starlight and the Canterlot Council. Their ruling was that this was indeed bad but that it did not constitute military action against them.

This would all change however when Merli's top General would launch a daring offensive to take blueprints from an E-Tech facility in the Zebra Empire. This offensive was know as the Black Dagger among the IGA Commanders and it was to be carried out by a Griffin Company "Blitz Force." What the IGA was not planning for in this mission was the accidental passing of a Zebra EDF convoy by the facility to drop off supplies. A large fire fight ensued and despite the IGA managing to jam communications coming from or going to the E-Tech facility they did not plan on their being external EDF forces. The Zebra EDF 4th Chapter General was told of the assault and he immediately sent a transmission to EDF HQ in Equestria. This transmission was received and an immediate counter offensive was launched to stop the Griffins from getting away with valuable EDF tech and blueprints. The EDF Ground Forces 122nd Company under the command of Supreme Commander Cloud were sent to the region where they fought and defended the facility from all IGA forces. In the fray two Griffins were taken as prisoner and the rest were killed. This terrible and botched mission would become known as the "Zebratanican Firestarting" as it would kick off the second largest war on Equis. This was the match thrown into the tinder box and now the cat was out of the bag. Merli was planning for war and had no good intent for Equis. In accordance with the EDF 1st Chapter Codex the measures known as Alpha-Ceta 115 would be enacted. This called for the immediate blockading of the Griffin Kingdom by all means. The aerial borders would be blocked off by massive airship fleets while ground forces moved in and sealed off the sectors all around the Kingdom. The EDF Royal Navy would also be launching a sea-based naval blockade that would seal off all ships from leaving the Frigid Gulf. From here the Equis World Council would call for the stepping down of Merli the Grey from power to be judged for her crimes against Equis and the Greater Good of All. She would, much to no one's surprise, refuse and thus the Gryphus Campaign began.

This conflict will not be easy and there will be a great call for many lives to be sacrificed. Through hard work, commitment, vigilance, and determination the forces of the EDF and its allies will prevail against the evil Queen of Gryphus that is Merli the Grey. Long live the EDF and the Greater Good!

Non Role Play Post

Hello and good day awesome members of the community! I have two quick announcements to make that I would like for you to pay attention to as they pertain to the community. I'm not feeling like making a long and drawn out post so it shouldn't take you too long to read this. So, without further adieu lets get to it!

For my first announcements I am sad to say that my summer is coming to an end. I know that many of you that are in school or college may already be back but for me I only have one week left before I start my senior year of college. These next two semesters are going to demand a lot of time and energy from me so I'm not sure how active I will be able to be but just know that I'm going to try my hardest to keep things fun here for as long as I can. We also probably won't be finishing up the Gryphus Campaign this summer but we are about 3/4ths of the way done with it so it really shouldn't take too much longer to finish.

For my second announcement I would like for all my Ground Forces people to pay attention. This post here will serve as a rally post for a mission that is going to be taking place tomorrow. If you would like for your OC to be allowed to join this mission then you need to comment the following information down in the comments.

Name:
Rank:
Branch:
Weapons Class: >https://plus.google.com/u/0/101118469171988621599/posts/ASGmGopq6Ua<

Once you have done this I will be sure to review your comment and give it a +1 if you have done everything correctly. If there is an issue I'll let you know so that it can be resolved.

Thank you for taking the time to read and understand this post. If you have read it completely then you now know what is going on in the community. Should you have any questions, comments, or concerns then feel free to private message me on here. As always, stay awesome my friends and have a wonderful rest of the day!

MISSION PRIORITY: Tier 3

MISSION LOCATION: Western Griffin Kingdom

AREA OF OPERATION: Town of Little Creek

INTEL: The town of Little Creek was a bright and booming place in the Griffin Kingdom before the war started. Trade with Equestria as well as the crystal empire meant the town was always well supplied. There were many great diners, restaurants, and cafes to eat at and spend time with family and friends as well as a number of shops both big and small in the area.

Following the start of the war tourism has dropped to zero and rarely does anyone outside of the local area visit. The spirits of the townsfolk fell as the temperature in the region did. However, hope was not lost and the trying times brought the little town closer together. The town later on in the war sided with the GRA which would prove to be its demise.

The IGA began their assault and siege on the town after a full company of GRA rebels moved in and fortified the town and protected the locals. Everyone inside the town was given one day to evacuate before everyone remaining would be considered "traitors of the crown" and executed. Most of the old, sick, and young were evacuated on the first day but not everyone could be. There were not many local towns close by and a trek across the land in times of war was a highly dangerous ordeal. Most of the townsfolk decided to stay in their homes with their families. In the early morning of July 31st in the year of 2018 the once quiet town was besieged by IGA forces. The GRA was able to hold out against dozens of hostile government soldiers while locals assisted in fighting, treating the wounded, or helping in any way they could.

Seeing this enraged the IGA Major overseeing the assault. Seeing as a ground force assault on the town was not working, Major Blackbeak ordered that a "Manticore" mobile artillery unit be brought in. This artillery unit was loaded with specialized white phosphorus gas missiles that were to be used in order to preserve the vital strategic buildings of the town. A singular, (at the time) experimental "Black Harvest" missile was also loaded in with the other white phosphorus missiles.

In the early morning hours of the second day of the siege on Little Creek 20 missiles loaded with volatile chemicals were launched at the town. Within 30 minutes of the first volley of white phosphorous missiles half the town defenders died burning, choking, and agonizing deaths. The killing blow was the launch of the "Black Harvest" gas missile that impacted near the town center. The highly volatile black gas spread throughout the town and killed the rest of its occupants in terrible and unspeakable ways that need not be listed on an official EDF report. Video of the entire incident has been recorded by spy satellite in what has come to be known as "The Massacre at Little Creek."

BRIEFING: One week after the terrible events that unfolded in the town of Little Creek an EDF X-4 "Viper" advanced recon aircraft was shot down by a S.A.M site at an IGA outpost. The pilot has been now presumed K.I.A after not responding to any communications made. Backup communication attempts have been made to secure the data on board the aircraft but all have failed. It is now key that the black box on board the aircraft is recovered before the IGA destroy it. This black box holds valuable intel on IGA nuclear launch site locations as well as chemical manufacturing labs. EDF Ground Forces are to reach the town and recover the black box from the aircraft at all costs.

EDF Ground Forces Platoon 13 will be deployed from EDF tier 5 outpost "Recker" at 07:00 hours via 3 APCs and two Humvees.

Convoy 1 will travel due south west down highway GK-67 for 15 miles before making a left to get onto the road that leads to the town of Little Creek.

Convoy is to stop 1.2 miles out from the town to allow a drone to be deployed to search the area for any hostiles that could be waiting to ambush the convoy or its soldiers.

Hostiles will be marked if they are present. If no hostile force is present convoy is to proceed with caution into the town.

The X-4 "Viper" pilot stated his aircraft was about to crash into a building before http://C.O.Ms was lost. All buildings are to be searched until the aircraft and (presumed) deceased pilot is found.

Pilot's tags and ECHO device are to be recovered in addition to the black box.

IGA forces are presumed to be in the town or nearby. Lethal force is authorized and the aircraft black box is to be recovered at all costs.

Once the BB has been recovered platoon 13 is to meet back up with convoy 1 and RTB.

The Massacre at Little Creek

CODEX ENTRY: 073018

The following information has been classified until recent events. Any level 2 or higher EDF personnel are authorized to view this information at their own digression. Proceed with caution.
