Mission 4 of Operation Scorpion submitted

26 posts in this topic

Greetings all. Version 1 of Mission 4 of Operation Scorpion has been submitted.  

Mission Briefing:

Hanover Germany

Day 3 of the War.

SITUATION:
An hour and a half ago American forces together with BAOR forces fought off a large attack from Soviet Guard armor.   The final wave is expected soon with reinforcements.   American forces are running low on ammunition and must proceed to the west to reload allowing the BAOR forces to defend.   

The enemy knows this.  The enemy also has good data on BAOR positions aside from first platoon to the north. 

Expect a full-on armored fist with the best the enemy has.  Watch your flanks as well.  

MISSION: 
Hold the airfield at all costs.  The only option left is to go nuclear to stop the Soviet armored attack.  If we can hold here we can counter-attack in 2 days when 2nd AD arrives from the US mainland.  If Soviet forces break phase-line gauntlet it's all over. 

COMMS:


"Condor" - Company commander - Cobra

"Sword 6" BAOR force leader- Matsimus

"Granite" - BAOR 1st platoon leader- Falcon BMS God of wind Ghostdog688

"Dagger" - Cobra

"Claymore" - Figmo 92

"Mace"-  Rob Evans

"Griffen" - Cobra

"Bristol" - Cobra

"Rattlesnake" Apache flight section 2 - Dunadan

"Poptop" Apache flight section 1- FalconKPD

"Recoil 1" - Bushido Devil Dog

"Torch" - Tim Sielback

"Hammer" - Cobra

-----------------------------------------------
From the creator:

Welcome to hell.  This is it, as tough as it gets. 

No one likes to retreat but now it's time.  Soviet forces are too plentiful and it's time to use terrain to your defensive advantage.   Fall back and choose defensive position for the armored hammer approaching.
-USE YOUR INFANTRY IN WOODED AREAS!
-APACHES ARE POWERFUL!  USE THEM, RELOAD THEM, USE THEM AGAIN.  There is ammunition on the runway to restock them. Stand-off ranges only!
-Arty is available!  Put down lines of DPICM. 
-You need to re-load your M1A1s.  Locate all your resupply assets and then allow the reloading to complete.  BAOR forces are ready to go but don't send them out to the east.  You'll regret it!   Remember...  DEFEND GAUNTLET! 
-Forget out-flanking the enemy on this one...  that would be like trying to outflank an ocean.  Defend with MULTIPLE LINES!  Soviet doctrine is to overwhelm, break through and then EXPLOIT the break.   

The mission will show an ending message and audio file if the enemy breaches the gauntlet line but for some reason SB Pro will not end the mission if enough of the enemy is killed.  I have consulted the forums and as of this build no one has any explanations.   If the enenmy breaches the gauntlet line you will get a nice audio reminder of the nuclear fire-war to come.  

All my thanks to all my voice-donators for all four missions.  Thank you all.  

Have fun.

He can password it if he wants.

 

Its his work and the last thing you need as a scenario author is people changing stuff and then complaining that it "no longer works" or is "unbalanced", been there, done that.

I'll unpassword it eventually all.  For now I want it a challenge.

I don't think you should put the password out for now. I think you should give a little time till it ages a little. :) The mission is a jawbreaker from the start. I love a mission that keeps you on your toes. Plan well!!! Nice scenario.

Servus,

 

the bloddy job is done.

A not so easy mission. 

If you play the mission, take your time to prepare your mission, especially Arty, Apache waypoints, positions, prepare routes for resupplying at the airport and back again to the battle field.

 

Thanks for the work you put in, was a lot of fun and challenging to play these 4 missions. 

 

cheers

Servus,

 

tried a second time with a better arty fire plan.

This time I lost 1 M1, 1 Chally, 3 Brads, 2 Warriors, 1 HMMWV and the Avenger HMMWV.

 

cheers
