Just finished playing the 'as an eagle' mission from the fantastic FDF mod. ( Top work guys ).
Anyway, what a chore I had. Every approach I tried on the rebel base resulted in a masacre. I used every strategy I could think of, machine gunner on the flanks with my team coming in at 90 or 180 degress. AT team seperate to take out the armour. Different patterns of fire, grenade volly. Everything resulted in my team being butchered.
Finally in a fresh attempt I got slightly lost and stumbled over a crest in wedge formation to find the camp about 50m right in front of me. I dropped to the ground and gave a panicked 'open fire'.
After a few minutes the last russian got off one lucky shot that caused my only casualty.
So, boy, did all my plans look stupid.
Anyway I've read enough stories of great blunders and undeserved victories in real life to know that sometimes 'thems the breaks'! Just wondered if any of you guys also felt that sometimes the harder you try in OFP the worse it gets or if you'd also had the day saved by sheer dumb luck?
