BlackDog has submitted a remake of the true battle that took place in Iraq February 26th, 1991. Desert Storm. The battle was between the 2nd Armored Calvary Regiment, and Iraqi republican guards.
Quote BlackDog : The Battle of 73 Easting was a decisive tank battle fought on 26 February 1991, during the Gulf War, between American-British armored forces and those of the Iraqi Republican Guard. This mission is one of the last armored engagements America has fought. Battlefield 3's mission "Thunder Run" was based off this event.
24292 has submitted heavily story driven singleplayer mission.
Quote 24292 : NATO and CSAT forces have withdrawn from the island completely after a ceasefire that lasted nearly a year. To keep the situation on the islands of Altis and Stratis from degenerating into a bloody civil war between the locals a U.N. Peacekeeping operation has been activated by the U.N. Security Council, the United Nation Mission on Stratis and Altis (UNMISAA).
U.N. troops were reinforced by the private security contractor ION which established a small HQ on Stratis.
UNMISAA has been mostly effective so far in maintaining the fragile balance on both islands since their arrival three months ago, and has been able in fact to lay the foundation for a more stable peace. The future was looking better for the locals every day until the incident at ION HQ.
An explosive loaded car was used to attack the ION HQ on Stratis, one ION employee and three U.N. soldiers were killed in the attack and several soldiers and bystanders were injured. This was a week ago and the attack was not claimed by any group.
The U.N.S.C. decided to end the contract with ION and reinforced the mission with more U.N. troops.
Even though there has not been more hostilities since everyone is still on edge.
Slatts released an updated version of his US Navy Seabee addon on the BI forums.
Quote Slatts : This was another texture sitting in the shadows of Arma WIPs for several months, with some redoing, that can now see the light of day. It's adds a retextured marine to represent a Seabee wearing AOR/NWU type 3.
