After learning from all the great missions out there, I am glad to announce the start of my very own series of anti-taliban themed missions called Operation Iron Fist. I am making them in series like what USRanger did for his "Bloodhound" series simply because producing an entire campaign with the scope and quality that I have in mind is nearly impossible for me at my stage due to my RL time committment. I hope you guys enjoy my missions.
WARNING! : Please don't play my missions if you have a less than 3ghz computer. It WILL bring your computer to its knees due to the immense number of units on the map. There is no way I can create the realism I am after using dynamically spawned enemies or friendlies and I really hate to see another frustrated player (which will of course give me low ratings) because their machine is not good enough to play these missions with good enough FPS.
I NEVER use my players as beta testers. All my releases are thoroughly beta tested and final.
Operation Iron Fist - Part 1 : FOB Alamo

In the Operation Iron Fist series of missions, you will be playing a lowly, often forgotten, grunt (AT soldier) in a 50 men USMC platoon assigned to Aiktalik. In the first mission, "Operation Iron Fist - FOB Alamo", the FOB comes under heavy attack from the taliban insurgents seeking to rid US presence. It is a dawn assault that took everyone by surprise. As a mere grunt in this chaos, what will you do to make a difference? Or will you simply hide and let the conflict sort itself out OR even go AWOL? You choose... I am making my missions non-linear in style. This means that there would not be any series of "tasks" to follow through in order to complete the mission. You need to try to understand the situation and then do whatever you want to do or you deem fit to do for the situation. You literally decide your own task, your own mission, your own destiny within the bigger picture that is happening around you. In fact, the mission could play out very differently each time you replay it or everytime you use a new AI mod. In fact, you might run into different people and different "tasking" everytime you restart. Like in all wars, your only job as a soldier is to live to see another day... The purpose of my missions is to allow players to experience the cruelty and harsh realities of war and not to glorify war and make heroes. You will experience panic, helplessness and chaos.. the reality of war.
Featuring 5 Possible Endings, including the possibility of going AWOL!
Required addons for Operation Iron Fist - FOB Alamo:
- BlackOps and desert mercs
- Desert USMC Units
- Extra Units and Vehicles
- ACE, ACEX, CBA, ACEX_PLA (featuring PLA as part of coalition force... yeah, I know I know... screw RL. )
Featuring the voice acting talent of:
USRanger709 (maker of Operation Jackal's Hunt) as Officer in Command (OC)
Tonci as Razor Team Leader, Miles.
Beagle23 as Fire Team Leader
My Wife, Precious, as Captain Yang, liaison officer of the PLA
Archamedes (in the SAS Black Ops campaign) and myself as various marines
YOURSELF as the main character using "bardosy's Chesty Puller style" main character dialogues.
Also featuring custom music remixed from some of Hans Zimmer's classics and battle sounds to create the most immersive environment possible.
:: Effects & Voice Volume 100% & Music Volume 50% (Some sounds are extremely bassy, bewarned)
:: Visual Distance 800m (yes, you don't need very long VD in this mission and you won't want to due to the huge number of AIs)
:: Friendly Accuracy 1.0, Enemy Accuracy 0.5 (those jihadists are just not that well trained and this setting gives the best balance for this mission)
The mission is extremely heavy even for my system, especially the beginning when a lot of animations need to be loaded, so I would advise a restart the moment the mission starts so that you can play with all animations already loaded into your ram without stuttering.

Operation Iron Fist - Part 2 : Chaos In The City
TAGS: Grunt Combat, Quesh-Kibrul, Urban Combat
Coming Not-So-Soon In A Month Or Slightly More.....
After the defeat at the Alamo, US troops pulled back and garrisoned the nearby capital city. After your experience and survival at the Alamo, you have been field promoted to Fire Team Leader (after your fire team leader died). Life as garrison in the city was dry and boring with the daily dose of IED disposal and playing nanny to the delta force. One day, during a routine, boring, patrol, you received orders that taliban suicide bombers has threatened to bomb the city's market square as a retribution to the city for housing the Americans. You are ordered to capture or kill these infiltrated suicide bombers before they can pull their trick off... but there's one problem... there's like a hundred civilians around you everywhere and these people are so used to gun fire they don't even bother to run or take cover in a fire fight! Can you still do your job without the collateral damage that the suicide bomb would have caused anyways?
