Please join our Mission Design & Discussion thread in our forums.

Operation Ronin mainbrief

Chemical Weapons Plants have been discovered in several towns along the Southern caucasus mountain range. U.S. Special Operations Command is requesting coordinated strikes on 3 target areas. Intel indicates that the Chemical Plants are interconnected with a communications tower in the area.

**Both the plant, and the coms tower need to be destroyed within 15 seconds of each other to avoid emergency backup systems from coming online ** - this must be a coordinated strike with your wingman.

Each target at each target area is marked with its own WP in your nav systems. Targets are as follows:

Target Area 1
WP 1 & 2
Target Area 2
WP 3 & 4
Target Area 3
WP 5 & 6

WP 7 is landing

WP 8 (for those that have it) is for a Navigation Fix.

** Loitering in the target areas could also cause emergency backup defense systems to come online **
** Mission ends after Blue destroys all 6 targets OR 3 hours after first target is destroyed.
** Check F10 coms menu for active target areas.

Get In – Hit’em hard – Get out!

Currently limited to Viggens, Mirages, Fishbeds, Frogfoots.

The Capture of Echo Bay

SITREP:
The SJW separatists, statists, and communists have taken over Echo Bay!

RED TASKING:

We must hold onto Echo Bay at all costs! Our safe spaces are heavily fortified, but we may need to use CTLD to build more!
If we can sneak past their defense, and blow up their FUEL TANKS @ their FARP we can stop them before they start!

SMOKE RULES:
RED = OWNED BY RED
BLUE = OWNED BY BLUE
ORANGE = CONTESTED (BLUE & RED ARE IN THE ZONE)
GREEN = EMPTY - READY FOR CAPTURE.

BLUE TASKING:

The SJW separatists, statists, and communists having lost the 2016 election to MAGA DJT - having conspired to create as much havoc between now and the end of time as possible, these losers and hypocrites have overcome their aversion to weapons and have joined forces with other tyrants and despots of the world with their funny little hats and have massed Russian equipment in and around Echo Bay.

Instead of allowing these miscreants to use and control this area we've decided to nuke the place.

The Alpha Males are back and..

Hmm? What? What’s that you say? We should not nuke the place? Conventional weapons will do? But..

You sure?

Perhaps your right..

1. Your task then is to blow the hell out of the place! Knock out every OIL DERRICK, FUEL TANK, OUTPOST, HANGAR, WATER TOWER. Anything and everything that could be used as a 'safe space' for leftist garbage. It's time to take out the trash!

2. Move our forces into the zones marked with smoke to take over these vital areas.

3. MAGA.

SMOKE RULES:
RED = OWNED BY RED
BLUE = OWNED BY BLUE
ORANGE = CONTESTED (BLUE & RED ARE IN THE ZONE)
GREEN = EMPTY - READY FOR CAPTURE.

Discuss The Vegas Extraction or our other missions in our forums. 

 

SITREP:
The negotiations had been ongoing for the last week. Our diplomats and their's along with various security forces were all cooped up in the various hotels and convention centers along the Vegas strip. We are not sure what happened or who fired first.. but our diplomats have called in support. When they tried to leave however they found each of the buildings were surrounded.

We thought they would do this. And we've planned accordingly. Our guys can't just walk out, but neither can theirs.

We need Huey pilots with nerves of steel and the skill to get into tight spaces while under fire.

RED/BLUE TASKING is the same:
HELO's are to fly to the Vegas Strip and extract troops from the colored smoke, and return them to your FARP.

Each group retrieved grants additional ground forces.

CAS Flight - Eliminate enemy resistance along the Vegas strip. Watch friendly fire!! We have troops in the area!!

CAP Flight - Kill everyone that is not you.

 

SITREP: 
Bomber Escort:

U.S. Fighters are to escort 3 bomber groups to Tonopah. 

Each bomber group is led by a special "Black OPS AWACS" containing specialized and supar sekrat bobbles and widgets which when combined together, and mixed with a bit of F99th mojo - creates a jamming field which disables all russian radar systems in the area.

Use your F10 Coms menu to activate each bomber group at Nellis.

RED TASKING:
1. STOP INCOMING BOMBERS AND THEIR ESCORTS! - KILL ALL 3 BOMBERS AND YOU WIN.
2. STOP INCOMING ENEMY CAS ATTACKING GROOM, PAHUTE AND BEATTY.
3. IF BLUE GETS AT LEAST 1 BOMBER HOME, AND THE THREE AIR BASES ABOVE, THEY CAN STILL WIN!

BLUE TASKING:
1. ESCORT THE BOMBER GROUPS TO TONOPAH.
2. THE AWACS IS A SPECIAL A/C THAT IS DISABLING ALL OF THE SAM SITES WHILE IN THE ZONE. IF THIS A/C IS NOT PRESENT IN THE ZONE, OR IS SHOT DOWN WHILE IN THE ZONE, THE SAMS WILL COME ONLINE. ALL OF THEM.
3. ONCE RADAR SYSTEMS GO DOWN - RUSSIAN MIG-21'S WILL BE LAUNCHED TO INTERCEPT. STAY ON THE ALERT!
4. CAS A/C CAN TAKE GROOM (WP1), PAHUTE (WP2) AND BEATTY (WP3) BY DESTROYING THEIR GROUND FORCES AND GIVING A FORWARD FOOTHOLD FOR AIRCRAFT TO REARM/REPAIR.
5. IF BLUE GETS AT LEAST 1 BOMBER HOME, AND THE THREE AIR BASES ABOVE, THEY CAN STILL WIN!

AWACS = 305AM

Discuss Pahrump Hump or our other missions in our forums. 

 

Pilots – Welcome to Nevada, are you ready to hump it over to Pahrump?


SITUATION 

Enemy forces are moving to capture Pahrump to establish staging grounds for a full assault on Vegas. Pahrump is currently defended by a small squad of IFVs and Abrams that are pulling security on our Command Outpost (CP), but they need reinforcements. The CP is located near city center and includes a navigational beacon operating on 325 MHz, modulating AM. Hopefully you like the ode to Full Metal Jacket when tuned in.

The enemy is expected to arrive in Pahrump within the next hour. Therefore, time is critical in bolstering city defenses.
