ENEMY FORCES
• SAPA are well trained and very familiar with the region
along the Atropia-Ariana border. They operate
normally in two to three man detachments using various
combinations of machineguns, RPG-7 , and assault
rifles. The movement of these detachments is
controlled and coordinated to provide mutual support
and synchronized action for long periods of time.
• Primary mission is to destabilize local governments
through intimidation. SAPA detachments will conduct
reconnaissance, recruit local males, and conduct
terrorist attacks against soft targets such as local
political leaders, ethnic Atropians, and government
institutions. Have also attacked NATO forces if they
have a perceived advantage.
• Other SAPA Tactics Include:
 IEDs / Mines – designed to kill and intimidate
 Raids – to seize supplies or forcibly recruit locals
 Checkpoints – used to identify ethnic Atropians,
recruit, and extort funds
 Ambushes – conducted to harass or to gain
additional food, weapons, etc.

CAUCASUS REGION
WF GTA
(For Training Purposes Only)
The Caucasus region is bordered on the west by the
Black Sea and on the east by the Caspian Sea. The
north side of the Caucasus Mountains includes a
portion of the large country of Donovia, most of
which is outside the region. The states of Gorgas,
Minaria, and Atropia are in the middle of the region,
on the south side of the Caucasus Mountains.
Atropia has territorial disputes with most of its
neighbors. In the west, Atropia and Minaria have
both claimed the Arzak province since the early
1900s. In the south, extended ethnic-Atropian
families straddle the Atropia-Ariana border. This
region closely identifies itself with Ariana since the
time of the ancient Arianan Empire. In 2003, the
South Atropian People’s Party (SAPP) formed to
represent the people of this region. It was unable to
affect change and gave birth to the South Atropian
People’s Army (SAPA). The rise of Islamic
fundamentalism complicates the challenges faced by
some countries in modernizing their political and
economic systems to compete internationally. The
major threat to international interests is the
curtailment or loss of energy exports from the region.
Further, past wars have created large refugee camps
in Atropia, Gorgas, and Faisalia. Further instability
and fighting still add to the regions civil unrest,
refugee migration, and crime.

• Conduct same sex searches or use alternate
search methods for women
• Request permission from commander before
