Operation Orion


In late September 2023 a separatist uprising began in Tbilisi, Georgia. Georgian military command and government officials were taken completely by surprise and after three days of fighting in the city the Georgian army managed to push the Russian backed rebels northward into The Caucasus Mountains. The push by the Georgian army came only after sustaining many losses to the well armed and seemingly well trained group. At this point, Russian military forces started assisting the rebels directly, accusing Georgian forces of attacking South Ossetia.

Following Russian shelling of targets inside Georgia, a NATO task force was set up to assist the Georgian army with suppressing the uprising and deterring any Russian advance into Georgia’s sovereign territory. Initially, the assistance was to take the form of providing vital battlefield intelligence to aid Georgian commanders on the ground. But on October 13th the situation escalated.

On the morning Friday, October 13th, what is believed to be a Russian 9M3M81 type missile, fired from a BUK surface to air missile system inside South Ossetia; shot down a NATO Boeing P-8 Poseidon plane which was involved in an ISR role in the region. All crew members are believed to have been killed in the initial explosion. NATO leaders held an emergency meeting and placed Task Force 023 on standby for direct action.
