The main focus of operations will be Tropica Island, currently in the hands of several groups, including Chedaki insurgent and criminal groups as well as the usual Islamic groups.
The northern half of the island is occupied by troops loyal to the Molatian government, and while the government maintains bases in the south, that area is administered by national liberation fronts and by transnational criminal organizations, including Takistani Army regulars, Takistani militia, Chedaki and African rebel troops.
The area has been used by Chedaki criminal elements as a source for drugs and slaves, and as a base for customers for arms, munitions and cash they ship in exchange for drugs.
The deployment is also meant to bolster the presence of NATO forces in the area and will work closely with those forces. Chernarusian forces are expected to conduct counter pirate operations, as well as disrupt, degrade and destroy rebel operations in the region.
The ground forces will be based at an undisclosed location, while the naval task force will rotate in and out of their Green Sea naval bases.
Naval Forces deployment:
4 Flower Class corvettes
2 Patrol Boat Tenders
Naval forces will be split into two task groups, with one at Green Sea naval bases, with the other in current operations.
Chernarus Naval Forces Deployment
30 Naval Infantry
30 Naval special forces
4 Assault Ships
2 Ship borne command centers
2 MI-17 helicopters
20 Command/Intel/Support personnel
10 Naval personnel
Probable Enemy Forces
300 Molation Army regulars w/ 30 BRDMs and 30 technicals (100 deployed in the southeast)
150 African Rebels w/15 technicals
100 Takistan Army regulars w/ 30 technicals
100 Chedaki rebels w/ 30 technicals
Chernarus naval forces can expect limited help from the US Navy in the form of air strikes, and some help from US Army Delta, SEAL, British SAS and CIA Tier 1 operators.

Something of a meme with the Kerbal Space Programme online community about living thru some very very bad spacecraft design and piloting issues. C.F. "unplanned rapid disassembly", especially at impact or altitude.|

Unmanned probes have twice suffered unplanned rapid disassembly on contact with the surface of the second moon, minmas. Planning a 3rd to be followed by the manned mission.
Docking is a bitch. Get MechJeb addon.
Grinding out science contracts, getting out to the really good stuff.

Putting together a launchable modular gantry is going to be the real trick.
