JANXOL Posted February 27, 2020 Share Posted February 27, 2020 Date: 1.03.2020 17:30 UTC Expected mission length: 120+ min (might be over or under) Ending of Act 1: Spoiler "Today, at 00:01 local time, The Archipelago of Altis came under a rapid and violent attack by the armed forces of the Russian Federation. We will not stand for this unprovoked act of violence. We will not yield and we will defend our soil, our citizens and our resources with any means available to us. Our enemies, regardless of coming from abroad or within, will learn that people of Altis are people who are no strangers to hardships, for we have tamed this land, no strangers to fear, for we have courage unlike any you have seen... And no strangers to violence, for we have endured more than you ever will. " - Altian Prime Minister transmitting from the government bunker The enemy used underhanded tactics in order to get an advantage in the opening phase of the invasion. They have landed on our soil before the official start of the hostilities in order to paralyze our defense network and communications. A group of Altian soldiers supported by the Americans ventured out to destroy enemy equipment used to facilitate the cyber-attack. They fought in darkness, going up against an unknown threat and with no communications. Their courage is admirable and their heroic efforts will not be forgotten. For their actions they will all be awarded medal of honor. They have accomplished their mission and the enemy equipment was finally shut down about 15 minutes after midnight. While the invasion has already begun, the enemy did not have free reign they had hoped for and we managed to organize defenses sooner thatn they anticipated. The situation is still under assesment, but it seems that the Russian forces, supported in several instances by Gatekeeper, made landfall in several areas of the Islands. Stratis has fallen two hours after midnight, the island's garrison was hit hard during the intial suprise attack. Situation on Malden seems stable, though there is a strong Russian presence on the island. It seems Malden is a secondary objective for them. On Altis situation is not looking good, but we managed to contain the initial assault - for now at least. We must do what we can before they can bring in supplies and heavy equipment. Apparently Freedom and Insurgent forces were also a thorn in their side, as we have learned that Templar's forces repelled the landing of Russian forces in the northern part of the island. There is still fighting in the east, but the msot concering are the Russian forces that landed int he southern side of the island, both eastern and western sections. Additionally Kavala was assaulted by an airborne force during the first 15 minutes of the war and they managed to secure a foothold in the city. We must act fast to push them away, as they are separated from the main (southern) force. Our NATO allies are of course supporting us. While this means that USA and Russia are now in a state of war, it seems that fighting is limited to the Altis archipelago, for now at least. Some call it a proxy war, others are just glad the nukes continue to collect dust in the silos. We are at war now and the altian doomsday clock has hit midnight. But this is Altis and we have always prevailed. We will always prevail. Spoiler "People of Altis. You grief now and I grief with you. Once again, they try to take your liberty from you. As they always have and, as I am afraid, as they will continue to do. But fear not, for they are neither better nor than your own government what exploits you and limits your freedom. And I assure you, people of Altis, that these foreign opressors are just as much an enemy to me, to us, as those who opress you from within. You, people of Altis, are ones who can withstand a lot. But you can do much more than that. You can stand against it, stand for what you truly desire, for your freedom. Join us, and you shall be Free..." - message broadcasted by The Templar two hours after invasion Act 2 - Might of the Bear Part 1 As the sun rises on the first day of war, the fighting that started in the night continues, maybe even gets fiercer. The Russian invasion was well prepared, well coordinated and well executed, but it is clear they counted on the Altian communications and radars being disabled for longer than they were. Regardless, while NATO-Altian forces managed to restore communications and organize themselves in record speed, the Russians had no intention of stopping the offensive. They gained a foothold on the island and they decided to use the momentum they have gained to its maximum potential. While not all Russian landings succeeded, the forces that landed in the south of the island made terrifying progress in just 3 hours. The frontline is still not stable and situation changes by the minute. With several reports of insurgent and Freedom forces engaging the Russians and the northern invasion being repelled by Templar's forces, it seems that this is going to be a three-way war for the island. One of the less successful landings happened in Kavala. A Russian airborne force landed in the city and secured a foothold on the island. It was their intention to extend south and push towards the south-western invasion force, but they failed to break through. Now they are contained to the urban area, but as long as they hold this area they remain a threat. They are encircled and - hopefully - tired, having fought through the night. They have received air-dropped supplies under cover of the night and the Altian command suspects they intend to hold the foothold until they receive more reinforcements through air or sea. It is imperative that the city is retaken before the enemy has a chance to dig in and before the imminent arrival of their reinforcements.
