This format can be used for all kind of military simulations. You can build your own set of orders following the steps one by one. Its up to you to make it as detailed as possible. A welcome help for writing orders or briefings for games.
The airport at Diyarbarkir was attacked this morning. 4 rockets were fired at the airport. Some landed near the VIP lounge. So far there are no reports about injuries. Authorities blame the PKK for this latest act of violence.
Belgium newspaper La Dernière Heure reports a suspect who got away during the attack on Zaventem has been caught. Another Najim Laachraoui is still on the run. Another 7 suspects have been arrested by the police, one of them was seen on a security camera together with the terrorists on the airport.

The link is interesting. I will have a look, some of my direct colleagues are registered there to. I hope writing in English isnt a problem for you because that is the main language on this server. Dutch is very hard to read for 99% of the visitors ;-)
For you the OOB and TO & E sections on the forum are probably the most interesting ones. We can use more detailed input on vehicles and tanks!
Today the Dutch army announced that it will recommission a new tank unit. The unit will field 100 soldiers in two platoons strong and brought under the command of the German 1st panzerdivision. The Leopard 2A6 tanks are to be leased from the German army surplus stocks. Good news after abandoning the last two batallions last year.
For the standard batallion and higher echelons, yes. But down to group level we use the Veitono and other standards. For example , an order for a guard detachment. Its 7 letters stand for an item which is important in the making of an order, making it easy to work with and its also impossible to forget anything. This is what it means:
V= Vijand or enemy. Who, what, where? EI= Eigen troepen/ own forces T=Terrein/ terrain/ whats the weather like, what are the possibilities, whats causing problems? O= Opstelling /position N = Neveneenheden/ neighboring units O = Opstelling commander/ position Commander.
