Tuvanaka Island, Tanoa, Horizon Islands, South Pacific Ocean. 7th March 2022.

The Horizon Islands, a group of small islands located in the South Pacific Ocean, are currently facing political turmoil due to external exploitation and power struggles. The islands sit on a large copper deposit, which has attracted foreign investment and industry for years. As a result of this exploitation, a well-funded and well-organized opposition group called the FPA (Free Peoples Army) has emerged, opposing the NATO-backed HIDF (Horizon Island Defence Force) and multiple affiliate criminal groups.

The FPA operates locally from Sosovu and Yasa, two small islands that are part of the Horizon Islands archipelago. They have been engaging in illegal activities such as the piracy of local fishermen and racketeering in Georgetown. There are suspicions that the local Gendarmerie may be complicit in their actions. Recently, the FPA has escalated their attacks and targeted international shipping in the wider region and HIDF forces on the mainland.

With 2 Para & Pathfinder Platoon having been engaged in continued fighting on the mainland, follow-up forces have arrived at the islands to offer further support. In the continued fighting and mass grounds gained by FPA forces, multiple HIDF commanders have split from the governmental line, proclaiming islands surrounding Tanoa to have split. With this, 45 Commando with attached 653 Sqn from 3 AAC, offering local support due to the believed Mechinsed capability of the focus on the Tuvanaka Island. During the night, 2 & 3 Platoon secured a crossing for 1 Platoon to allow them to push through and begin the push through the island.


B Company, 45 Commando has been tasked with conducting an attack on Tuvanaka island in an effort to engage and destroy local HIDF split-off forces.
