Enfilade Ambush

by
maturin


Description:
This missions features a textbook L-shaped ambush on a large scale. Engagements like this are a pain to set up while trying to control AI, so this mission places everyone in readiness in advance. The mission is balanced so that twenty ordinary troops can take on eighty enemies, without any crutches like explosives or better weapons.

It is set during the beginning of the Chernarussian Civil War in the 90s (as is another mission coming out soon), and I have some fun writing a but of imaginary history into the briefing. This is the first mission I have ever completed and released, so I hope people like it. Come to think of it, this mission was over a year in the making and was re-created twice. It should be a very short, intense experience of the sort you don't often see in this game.

There is a version played from the CDF perspective. Can you fight your way out of the killzone? I threw this together tonight and haven't playtested it extensively, meaning that it may be too hard. It's also easy to abuse if you know where the ambush is, but people may want to play around with the scenario.


Included versions:
embush.chernarus.pbo (The original mission)
hsubme.chernarus.pbo (The same mission from the CDF perspective)


Installation:
Extract the .pbo file(s) to your ArmA2 Operation Arrowhead\Missions folder.


Notes:
Made with Combined Operations. No Operation Arrowhead content is used, so the mission may work in Arma 2.

No Addons Required, but the weapons handling of ACE and the reduced accuracy of ZEUS AI makes the engagement play out a bit better.


Changelog:
v1.1
  • CDF perspective version added



  • - Arma 2

    Ok, thanks!

    OP updated with another version of the same mission, played from a different perspective. Could this new .pbo be added as an additional download to the same mission page?

    Thanks for updated, but without the explanation, the download page does not specify which .pbo does what.

    Please add something along these lines:

    Included Files:
    embush.chernarus.pbo (The original mission)
    hsubme.chernarus.pbo (The same mission from the CDF perspective)
