Description:

An unexpected situation unfolds as Cpt. W. Sobchak and his convoy make their way to Zargabad Airfield.

Features:

- Played as a US-Army mechanized infantry squad
- Weapon selection in Briefing
- AI convoy movement controlled by Unitplay for a realistic feel
- Optional Teamswitch/Advanced Heal
- Custom sounds and music (OST & some scores by myself)
- Simple Battlescreams
- AI support during mission
- A bit of customized AI behaviour
- Destroyed vehicles have custom smoke-model
- 2 Hidden Secondary Tasks
- Player's squad will be reinforced if numbers are low
- Relatively performance friendly (for Zargabad Standards) through spawning & deleting of objects
- Unlimited SaveGame (0-0-0)
- Cinema

Changelog 3.4:

- Full Voiceacting (Voices by Rejenorst & 1 by myself)
- Ace Features implemented (CLU's and Earplugs added, Earplug trigger credit goes to SaOk)
- All tasks are improved and adjusted, Final task has a new twist now.
- AI behaviour is adjusted
- Bugfix: Player will no longer get stuck at Crossroad task
- Bugfix: Cutscene and Mission success will no longer occur if player dies
- Tons of small tweaks and fixes

Known Issues:

- JTD Fire & Smoke Mod will badly effect mission gameplay and is not needed because of custom smoke-template.
- ACE will make last task very difficut but still beatable -> also causes the "stuck AI" bug sometimes. use teamswitch mode!

Credits/Resources:

- Upsmon script by Monsada & Kronsky
- Music: OST of 300, Jarhead, Full Metal Jacket. Additional music produced by myself, all music edited by myself.
- Soundfiles borrowed from COD and... The Taliban
- Airfield Fortification borrowed from "The Battle Of Zargabad" by SaOk

Comments:

I have been working on this mission for about a year now and decided to make it my first release. The filesize of 25mb is due to all the custom music.
Thanks to SaOk, SavedByGrace, Denz and Undeceived over at OFPEC!

Great mission, very well done, no bugs found.

Defend airfield is too easy and too short (i didn't use artillery support), an enemy infantery wave after ?

Thanks.

Thanks guys! I'm very glad to hear that.

I will make the 'Defend Airfield' task longer and more complex for the next update. Voice acting is also on my list.

Great mission with non stop action and great atmosphere, nice music and cutscenes, many tasks.
1 possible bug: task Debrief dont have green square after i finish that objective.
And mission dont have green square in sp scenario menu after we finish it. (commands activatekey, donekey). But that nothing big. Great work, thanks for this mission. :)

Thanks for the nice comments guys! I am really happy people are playing the mission now. And thanks Blondak for adding my profile!

Update with Voice-Acting is in the works. @Tom3kb, there is a small bug in the task you are talking about, good that you brought that up. Will fix that in the update.

Excellent - just played through for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed it. I played with ACE - here are some observations...

1. Team kept getting the old 'stuck' bug - refusing to move. Fortunately I had chosen to enable team-switch so I could get them out of it. I'll play it vanilla next time to see if this is still an issue.

2. No CLU's for the Javelin when playing with ACE - I know that the mission is not made for ACE, so this is merely an obeservation!

3. Excellent atmospheric music throughout.

4. All missions completed as expected for me.

Anyway, I really enjoyed the mission - thank you very much for sharing!

hi, i just played the mission. found a bug though. so when i was ambushed at the warlord's location, i was shot and i was waiting to be revived but it's too late and i die. so i just team switch, but then i got a cutscene with a black hawk flying and the mission ends as a success. :confused:
:31: Seriously. please don't.

Thanks for these reports.

The stuck AI bug is hopefully connected to ACE, I also had it a few times when testing with it. If there's a way to prevent that please let me know! The mission detects ACE in the next update and adds some basic stuff and also those CLU's (totally forgot about that).

@Alvando - that's a new one. Will look into that today! thx

Awesome mission dude! A bit easy overall, maybe, but awesome nonetheless. Superb immersion.
Only thing that seemed a bit wrong at the time is after you cleared the first compounds and get back to the humvee, the team you're supposed to be escorting (bravo, i guess) is left there. They never got back to the MTVR, so i was basically following an empty truck after that.
Good job!

thanks guys!

@BlackMamb, this must have been a glitch. Bravo's units should be moved into the truck after the last compound is clear, using 'moveincargo' since the player can't see it. I will look into that once I get my rig, but should you replay the units should be in the truck (I hope :) thx for the report!

Unfortunately again defend the airport is too easy, do nothing, wait and win.

yes, it can happen. but it's dependant on a few factors and can also turn out to be very challenging. i will continue to make it longer, but I moved to another country and wanted to release the update before, so I preferred to go for balance.

Spoiler


I had complaints about the task being too hard on another forum. Will continue to work on it :)
