- Inter IV (M14s)
- Second Hand Tigers
- Close Encounters
We started, however, with some oldies. In Bees, a small, squad-sized force bourne in future LBs - with an armed LB providing top cover and ST1 acting as recon - under the command of comrade CO Netkev, located and blew up two enemy tanks (with fairly minimal loss of life and valuable Party-issued equipment). Next, we killed each other to death with M14s in a particularly good run of Inter IV, in which the attacking CSAT force (commanded by comrade Peasant) successfully used both long and short-range suppression techniques to pin the defenders in place before delivering some neat executions. Props to the chaps who killed me by firing through a wooden door before clearing my building - great work!
After Altis, we moved to Tanoa - new island, two new missions. First, the platoon - initially just Alpha and Bravo, but later reinforced by Charlie - swept across one of the minor islands in comrade mission maker Costno's Second Hand Tigers. Syndikat rebels were killed and their strongholds destroyed, and it was absolutely perfect apart from the bit with the enemy GMG. Anyway, we won the day, and flushed with this success we carried on with the theme of locating Syndikat outposts, ransacking them for intel, and then blowing up their carefully curated collections of AKs and RPG-7s in comrade mission maker darkChozo's Close Encounters. Only this time it was as HSLD SF types, creeping through the jungle at night in small, independent squads, whilst comrade CO Netkev watched us on TV screens from a remote location. Like a voyeur. I don't want to say #Tigershark, but ...
Glorious stuff, and special thanks to our comrade mission makers. Special thanks also to comrades Blip2, NetKev and Pooter, who have been working to make our new server, K19-IV, fully operational (don't miss the destruction of Alderaan at 7, before the News). Speaking of which, if the potato harvest in your area has been better than in Latvia, the Party would appreciate help financing the revolution.
Finally, a quick note: the policy of running a non-APEX mission at the start of each session will continue. This is to help anyone who's Arma-curious experience the loving embrace of the Party, only without having to shell out for APEX first. Because the Party loves you all. But not you, Zitron.
