what col faulkner means is from HL2. A single renegade yank that wipes out an entire prisson, or even shoots his way out is hollywood. (although prisonbrakes did occure but these where extremly coordinated atack both from outside and inside, I remember a outbreak where 2 mosquittos dropped a bom aigainst a prisson wall and another in the guards mess at lunch time. The resitance where waiting outside to guide the prissoners to safty). Let him use stealth instead. Not with a plane crash but with a bombartment (plane= local problem, bomardment= WTF is the next one gone fall! Its pretty hard scripting but so more entertaining and satisfiyng then: "is that you John Wayne? Bratatatata, Yup I guess its me".
You can also make a partizane group for each side (indipentent, opfor, bluefor) and let them open up the war by fighting umongst themselfs. You know a little bom hier, a hit and run there. Goverment troops not cappeble a handeling them, nazi killing civs as a retaliation for a bomb, us getting bombed by the comunist partizanes, etc, etc. Tell us a story on what happend on the island but please no comedy-rambo storys
