OPLAN 5028 / CONPLAN 5028
The fact of the existance of OPLAN 5028 is very poorly attested, and the very few attestations of such a plan are in connection with OPLAN 1003. This suggests that some indicia of "OPLAN 5028" may simply be a typographic error, a mistake for OPLAN 5027.
The fact of the existence of PACOM CONPLAN 5028-96 is well established, although the details of this CONPLAN are entirely un-attested in the open literature.
OPLAN 5028 MTW West [Major Theater War - West] is the North East Asis plan that starts with MTW East (OPLAN 1003) in progress. The primary differences between OPLAN 5027 and OPLAN 5028 is the forces available. Since many stateside units are dual tasked for both contingencies, OPLAN 5027 and OPLAN 5028 have some differences in the forces available.
