OFFENSIVE DIVISIONS OF THE ARMY




OFFENSIVE DIVISIONS

MANNER SECTOR - 58 DIVISION (TASK FORCE 1)

58 Division (TFI) are now 3 KM north of Adampan town. The area is heavily fortified with tiger bunkers and progress has been slow. The capture of Alankulam is a stepping stone to the main sea tiger base at V. Progress on this sector is expected to be slow until 61 Division fully ramps up west of Vavuniya.

MADHU SECTOR - 57 DIVISION

The 57 division is playing a critical role spearheading the Manner sector advance deep into enemy terratory. 57 division is expected to advance towards Thunukkai and Mallavi strategic objectives. At present the troops attached to the 57 Division have surrounded Periyamadhu and are active 2 KM north of Periyamadhu

WELI-OYA - 59 DIVISION

Troops from the 59 Division are spearheading the attack into the Wanni. The Wanni battle front has now reached a critical point, troops are now 10 kilometres from Kumulamunai (just south of Nayaru Lagoon). A major tiger count-attack should be expected from this sector to stall the troops from reaching Kumulamunai. The capture of Kumulamunai will put all strategic based of the LTTE in Mullathivu under Arty range...the tigers will try the best to prevent this.

Troops are now operating just 21 Kilometres South of Mullaitivu and just nine to ten kilometres South of Kumulamunai located at the edge of the Nayaru lagoon.


JAFFNA (MUHUMALAI) -53 DIVISION
JAFFNA (NAGAR KOVIL) - 55 DIVISION

NEW OFFENSIVE DIVISIONS CURRENTLY BEING INDUCTED...

VAVUNIYA WEST - 61 DIVISION

61 Division will be deployed in a holding (defensive) role in Mannar and Vavuniya. 61 Division will be active in clearing operations and be in a defensive role to secure areas captured by 58 and TFII divisions.



VAVUNIYA WEST - TASK FORCE II


TFII will be deployed in Vavuniya west in Mundumurippu. From this location TFII will be able to protect the flank of 58 Division. TFII will be a major headache for the Tigers as they will directly threaten the A9. The attached map show the strategic points that TFII will target. Mallavi/Mankulam/Puliyakulam will all be under threat once TFII is fully operational.

GZL,

Dude, your call sign is too long. Therefore, I abbreviated it. Now to the real point, you say that "From this location TFII will be able to protect the flank of 58 Division." I am under the impression that 57 is the one adjacent to TFII and 58 is further to the west of 57. Also 57 currently is covering a vast region in Vanni. Can you please clarify why and how we can utilize TF II to flank 58 than 57?

Thanks

Sam

Sam -

TFII will protect the flank of both 57 and 58 division. We expect TFII to make inroads into the Wanni parallel to the A9 very quickly. As such, TFII will block any enemy movements from East of A9 to the West (or visa versa). However, you are correct 57 too will benefit from the induction of TFII. However, attention will change from 57 which is currently north of Periyamadhu to TFII very soon.
