Malmö in the southernmost province of Scania, is Sweden's third largest city by population after Stockholm and Gothenburg, and is one of the largest cities in Scandinavia. It has the largest European tunnel-bridge which links Malmo with Copenhagen over Øresund straights.
Unexpected landing of the 336th guards separate naval infantry brigade (336 гв. обрмп (USSR)) under Kristianstand, coordinated together with maritime relocation of 4th airborne division (4 PD (Poland)) landing next to Trelleborg have given the soviet side necessary operative advantages to capture Malmo unopposed. With Malmo captured, the soviets control the E-20 motorway and the Oresund bridge, negating easy transfer of supplies and de-facto having Copenhagen. The soviet side is definitely looking to use the westwards position of Malmo docks to resupply the Baltic fleet in future operations.
The Danish forces stationed in Lund were cut off from Malmo in one night, and recon elements were ordered to withdraw to not waste them without necessity. In such manner, the 1st Jutland Brigade is concentrated in Lund and is ready to assault the city along the E-22 motorway. To help the effort, 17 Panzergrenadiers Brigade is on its way. It has already crossed Oresund channel at Helsingborg using the E-47 tunnel.
Therefore, the 336th guards brigade is forced to defend the docks from a coordinated assault from two brigades awaiting the polish reinforcements from southern Malmo.
Objectives of both sides are currently the following:
WARPACT must hold the Malme docks, and, if possible, the indicated logistical centers.
-4 Pułk Desantowy (Airborne regiment) (4PD) with support from 7 Pułk Lotnictwa Myśliwsko-Bombowego (Fighter-bomber regiment) (7PLMB).
-336гв. обрмп (Naval brigade) (336) with support from 3 тб.вЭ ВМФ (3ATS) (assault transport helicopter squadron)
NATO must try to block the polish forces in the city, as well as capture the docks.
-1St Jutland Brigade (1JutBr)
