Operation Falcon is a joint US-UK deployment seeking to disrupt the supply of drugs originating from the PKL province.
The region is dominated by a vicious narcoterroism cell, the ‘Khmaoch Cartel’. There are allegations within the international community that the USSR is arming the cartel in return for funds that are being used to fuel the arms race.
The NATO alliance has condemmed these alleged activities and has requested that the USSR cease trading with these cartels with immediate effect. The USSR continues to deny their involvement.
In early 1980, wary of increasing USSR influence in the region, the UK and US annouced the deployment of military forces to the region.
The ‘Reaper Crew’ platoon, a coalition rifle platoon has been deployed to the region under the guise of ‘peacekeeping’.
