JANXOL Posted January 31, 2020 Share Posted January 31, 2020 Date: 2.02.2020 17:30 UTC Expected mission length: 120+ min (might be over or under) Act 1 - Prelude to a Nightmare Part 4 Very shortly after the Altian offensive started, the high command realized pushing the enemy back will not be as easy as was originally predicted. Launching an attack before all preparations were complete was aimed to take advantage of enemy weakness, but also resulted in disorganization among Altian troops and casualties much higher than anticipated. Still, it had moderate success, which the Altian government managed to brand as victory. Despite having Freedom's support and malfunction of USS Patrick Gallagher's VLS system, the insurgents were forced to retreat from the territories targeted by the initial Altian push. In face of unrelenting assault, The Watcher, commanding enemy Freedom forces, ordered a retreat. Altian army seized several strategic objectives, such as a field airfield, but the insurgents managed to pull back most of their supplies and equipment before the area was taken. Now the Altian offensive is at a halt. The losses were high and success moderate and as such high command made a decision to hold the advance to await reinforcements, resupply and to have time for proper planning. The original goal of pushing against the insurgents before arrival of The Templar and Freedom's troops that will no doubt accompany him is no longer deemed possible to accomplish in time. Additionally, territory that was taken is not fully secure, as insurgents are still conducting guerilla operations across the island. The Altian government must also deal with the aftermath of an incident that happened during the offensive. An Altian aircraft mistakenly fired upon a civilian target, which resulted in loss of life of multiple civilians. The public outrage on the island and abroad is largely fueled by Russian media and diplomats, who immediately jumped on the story, using it best they can in order to demonize both the Altian government and US troops stationed on the island. The insurgents are also attempting to use the incident as part of their propaganda, but the populace cannot be swayed that easily. Coincidentally - or maybe not - a political incident in South-East Asia sparked tensions between Russia and USA and neither country is willing to back down. With the offense on hold the Altian high command once more turns its attention to guerilla warfare that wreaks havoc in areas that should've had no insurgent presence. The Altian clock has advanced and now shows 2 minutes and 30 seconds to midnight... The Assets Player faction: Altian military Player slots: 32 - PLATCO - 4 man command element + BRDM-2UM command vehicle - 3 Infantry Squads - Alpha, Bravo, Charlie - 8-man each (4-man fireteam, 3-man maneuver team + engineer - effectively two 4-man fireteams) - Vortex - Pilot and Co-pilot - Shadow - 2-man sniper recon team (sniper and spotter) - Mi-8 transport helicopters (including a CAS-capable variant) - Various wheeled transport vehicles The mission The insurgents have been conducting guerilla operations across the island to disrupt our operations and supply lines. Recently they started targeting aircraft passing through this region in order to disrupt ours as well as US supplies arriving at a nearby airfield. Among the targeted aircraft was also a helicopter carrying colonel Silas Xenotis. We have lost contact with the aircraft and the crew and the colonel are M.I.A. Assuming they survived the crash, they are probably held prisoner by the insurgents. Your task is to search the area for the missing aircraft, find out the fate of the crew and the colonel and rescue them if possible. Additionally you are expected to neutralize any enemy AA asset you encounter.
