[Sun] 22 May 2016 (Bar-B-Q & Beers)

Post by AJAX » Sun May 22, 2016 10:35 pm

NEARLY 40 Comrades joined us today for a splendid time in the Armaverse.
We assaulted a really unfreindly town.
Then had a battle over some beers and there where no beers!!!
Got to fly around for a bit and clean up the mess left by an attack heli.
Abruptly ended the enemies hilltop bar-b-q.
We tried our best to survive in Frini, and made it!!!
Then we ended the day with the bar-b-q that we raided earlier. Yum!

Before I forget it, I just wanted to flag that I thought the selection of terrain in Beer Run was really awesome. Possibly because it was combined with .556 weapons, I felt like this was one of the few adversarial missions where you can see the enemy - exchange fire - and not be certain of an outcome every time. This happened in two contexts for me during the mission: first, when engaging an enemy FT that was across the 'death bowl' from us, but at a similar elevation; and later when we were in the dense brush of the bowl itself, fighting at almost point-blank range. Really nice work.

few cool shots of the platoon dusting off in little birdies http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/f ... =689640712 http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/? ... =689640756

Cloudline is always a nice reversal of weekend warriors.
Beer run went tragically buggy, but was a tense firefight, and I can only echo fer's comments. (I will not apologise having the indfor sniper team blown into little pieces with a 250lb bomb.)
overrun . MAT got eaten by a strider. was not pretty.

Good to see some new faces, really good to see those new faces stepping up to leadership slots and all in all, a good session.

PS, I thought the armour workshop went pretty well. Any comments, thoughts, opinions and questions would be very welcome.

Didn't I write Cloudline before someone wrote Weekend Warriors? Also, we never used to be as good at the assault! Must be made harder ...

Yes fer, you did make your mission first then the other was made because of it.
