You could start the recon birds in the air - but it might be best to have the QRF on the ground, since it's easier on comms / planning (for the SLs and their squads).

I'm an old-timer from the OFP days (I even mourned the Red Hammer campaign) and I'm looking forward finally playing this in proper coop. I should be available most weekdays.
Roman ... this is Eagle ... how did you locate us? ;)

You did. IIRC we took no losses before the beginning of our ill-fated lift.

Re: Christmas Challenge 2015

First, what's the deadline? January 2nd (UK) Second, where is the Aziz character model? Aziz is not a specific model - he's an idea. Use your imagination ;) Avoiding any manual scripting at all may be impossible for Yours Truly (it does limit some of the fun for me), but I'll do my best. Resist the...

Re: fa3_c69_chain_lightning

... so the CO would have to strike the moment a camp is spotted, and keep a contingent troops on hand for when the next one is found. That's pretty much what I had in mind when I termed the infantry 'QRF'- each time a camp is found, a squad would be sent off. The CO might even pause the recon until...

Re: fa3_c69_chain_lightning

Like Uprising , I wanted to think about this mission for a few days before posting, because whilst I struggled with it - I liked the ambition. Because where this mission could really shine is as the basis for a JO. :coolbert: In the context of a main session mission, my concern with Chain Lightning ...

Re: fa3_c52_uprising

I struggled with this one, and having thought about it for a few days, for me it's about 'credibility'. Although crate-worship is definitely not something the Party would encourage, the concept of a mission where our equipment/fire-power increases over time is something different (and not unwelcome)...

What this mission demonstrates is that if you are going to write a sequential, multi-objective mission, make object #1 something that the platoon could reasonably be expected to accomplish with zero casualties if 'done right'.

Re: [Sun] 06 Dec 2015 (...BEEPBEEPBEEPBEEP...)

I want to point out that around 15 seconds after Alpha's helo hit the power lines, I experienced a real life power-cut at home (which is why comrade Ferrard Carson had to assume command mid-way through the mission). Coincidence? You decide ...
