JANXOL Posted March 26, 2020 Share Posted March 26, 2020 Date: 29.03.2020 17:30 UTC Expected mission length: 120+ min (might be over or under) Act 2 - Might of the Bear Part 5 The operation of Altian special forces was successful, striking at several strategic targets beyond enemy lines. The loss of those installations will hamper the Russian operations quite significantly. In fact, as days pass, there is virtually no movement of the frontline, the Russian offensive halted, and Altian troops utilizing this time to the best of their ability to prepare defense in depth. However, due to recent loss of equipment after having to destroy the supplies stolen by the insurgents, the Altian army is also in a worse shape than anticipated. In an attempt to compensate for the shortages some older equipment makes its way back into active service. Additionally, some of the equipment purchased shortly before the invasion, which was yet to undergo evaluation before a full delivery contract is signed, such as armored vehicles bought from South Africa, is sent in to the frontline units for "field tests". With the destruction of Russian installations and Altian loss of equipment it seems that there is only one party in this conflict prepared to push onwards - the insurgents and their Freedom allies. It is clear that Templar's forces are preparing to move, having received reinforcements amidst the chaos of Russian invasion. In addition to usual guerilla operations, the insurgent are more and more often found probing Altian outposts, scouting for ample place and time to strike. There is no doubt that at least some of guerilla forces on the island are commanded by the "Phantom", an almost legendary Freedom commander and unprecedented master of infiltration. Through diligence of Altian intelligence operatives an interesting piece of information is revealed. Altian special forces attacked five out of six targets assigned to them. However, Russian radio chatter mentioned and attack on another target, one that wasn't even designated for the operation. A Gatekeeper HQ and - more importantly - its server uplink was attacked. As revealed by our operatives, some of the sensitive data was downloaded by the attackers before the server connection was severed. With pieces of the puzzle falling into place several things are becoming clear: Phantom and his forces were operating on Russian territory at the same time as Altian special forces and they attempted to download classified data from Gatekeeper's network. It is unknown what they were after or whether they got it, but the situation itself is worrying. Additionally it presents a question of whether Phantom knew about Altian operation to use it as diversion, or whether it was pure coincidence. This could mean that there is a Freedom spy in Altian high command. The Assets Player faction: Altian armed forces Player slots: 33 - PLATCO - 4 man command element + BRDM-2UM command vehicle - 3 Infantry Squads - Alpha, Bravo, Charlie - 8-man each - Vortex - 2-man helicopter pilot team (pilot and co-pilot) - Deimos - 3-man vehicle crew - to operate Badger and Rooikat (note that as this is equipment for evaluation, it's availability is extremely limited - you will not get replacements) - Mi-8 helicopters -1xBadger -1xRooikat -Various wheeled support vehicles The mission It seems the Russians were so impressed with our spec-ops that they decided to try a similar thing. Under cover of the night and SEAD mission an airborne detachment infiltrated our territory. However, their intel wasn't entirely accurate and they didn't manage to hit their intended targets. Now the sun is rising and they're still in Syrta, as well as occupying a nearby radar installation, which they will presumably attempt to destroy. Insurgent forces are also present in the area. We have an opportunity to destroy the enemy airborne force before they can evacuate, but be wary of insurgents and Freedom. This will most likely be a three-way engagement. More information will be provided soon.
