Domcho released in the BI forums a remake from OFP/ArmA Cold War Assault of his The Great Escape mission.
Quote Domcho : Hello everyone. It has been a while since I made any missions but recently I came back to mission editing and decided to recreate a mission that me and a friend of mine made back in Operation Flashpoint Resistance (ArmA Cold War Assault). The mission is called "The Great Escape". It's made both for singleplayer where you play alone with no friendly AI and for multiplayer where you can play with AIs or with friends. You start at the village of Cancon with nothing but a handgun. All your friends are dead, no ammo's left behind. You must head Northwest to the US base near the airfield where's the only place that has a flying vehicle - a Mi-24 Hind stolen by the Americans. The whole island is held by the US and the FIA who are working together against the USSR. All Soviet forces withdrew from Malden and what was left behind was either killed or captured except you. Your ultimate objective is to grab the Hind and fly to Kolgujev however before making your retreat home you must go through 5 villages controlled either by the US or by the FIA and destroy everything you find there as an act of vengeance against your foes which slaughtered your comrades in Cancon (and not only) while you were away. If you skip 1 single village you will not be able to complete the mission.
At first our plan was to ignore the villages and put patrolling squads all over the island but since Malden has no trees and forests like Everon and Kolgujev, it will be kind of impossible to hide once you encounter hostiles. That's why you are forced to go through the villages situated on the road leading to the US base near the airfield. If you are wondering "How am I gonna now if the village is cleared and there aren't any soldiers hiding in the buildings/tents/bushes?" - Well once you kill the last enemy in the village you'll get a hint and a task update.
There is only 1 huge difference that's not important that much for the mission and gameplay. In Operation Flashpoint Resistance/ArmA Cold War Assault this mission was created on the AEC island created by PMC Snake which consists of the 3 original islands (Malden, Everon, Kolgujev) on 1 place where you can go from one island to the other. Unfortunately no such addon exists for ArmA 2 at least not to my knowledge.

AST|Raptor has submitted, using our Public FTP, a cooperative mission where 10 BAF Paratroopers search and destroy an AAA position in a nearby village.
Quote AST|Raptor : Ground and air units of Esbekistan attacked NATO coalition forces in Clafghan without any warning or prior provocation. US and German forces are trying to stop the surprising invasion in the North, but they lack of air support and heavy weapons. French and British Armed Forces prepare a counter attack and consequently the invasion of Esbekistan.
2 Para as current Air Assault Task Force will land in enemy territory and cut off the supply lines.
Kommiekat released in the BI forums a new campaign inspired by events that could and may have happened by the C.I.A.
Quote Kommiekat : A proxy war is a conflict where third parties fight on the behalf of more powerful parties.
Proxy wars have also been fought alongside full-scale conflicts. It is almost impossible to have a pure proxy war, as the groups fighting for a certain nation usually have their own interests, which can diverge from those of their patron.
Typically proxy wars function best during cold wars, as they become a necessity in conducting armed conflict between at least two belligerents while continuing cold warfare.."

Antifiriz released in our forums a simple, medium length, covert ops mission for OPFOR side.
Quote Antifiriz : South Zagoria is in turmoil. Tension is growing higher and higher every minute, Russian units are stationed at the border, while the ChDKZ getting hit hard both by USMC, CDF and NAPA. A three-sided war going on in the northern area, and ethnic Russian population is getting terrorised by NAPA. A peacekeeping operation was considered, the area was a matchbox, and today, an explosion in Red Square ignited it.
Quote CimaleX : November 1970, equatorial Africa: Portugal commenced Operacao Mar Verde or Operation Green Sea on 22 November 1970.
This seaborne invasion of Conakry, conducted under cover of darkness, sought to overthrow Toure', a staunch PAIGC ally, to capture the leader of the PAIGC, Amilcar Cabral, and to cut off supply lines to PAIGC insurgents.
Guinea very actively supported the nationalist forces attempting to end Portuguese colonial rule in adjacent Guinea-Bissau, from their first appearance in the early 1960s until their ultimate success.
The only significant nationalist organization, the African Party for the Independence of Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands (Partido Africano da Independencia da Guine' e do Cabo-Verde—PAIGC), had maintained its headquarters in Conakry and its rear area bases in Guinea close to the border with the Portuguese colony.
The leader and major force of the PAIGC until 1972 was Amilcar Cabral.
Cabral's residence in Conakry was close to that of President Toure', and the two leaders espoused a similar ideology on domestic and international affairs.
Portugese Guinea HQ (General-Governor Spinola) dediced to launch an articulated and hazardous plan against Conakry, the goal is to infiltrate during night into guinean/PAIGC controlled territory in the capital of Guinea Conakry, several squads of portugese marines and commandos of five men each, onboard some Zodiac/Zebro rafts.
Portugese task is to infiltrate the city and strike the main guinean armed forces infrastructures with the aim of destroy as much equipment as possible, especially the guinean/PAIGC naval assets (Komar and PT-6 patrol boats) vehicles and light APCs (held inside a Hangar close the piers) the headquarters of the Guinea Conakry army (Camp Samory) and the Republican Guard.
Other important target during the mission is to find and assassinate or capture the leader of the PAIGC, Amilcar Cabral and Guinea president Sekou Toure', that might be in the presidential compound, while a secondary but relevant target is the hangar at the airport, where we suspect some Mig-17s are held and kept airworthy with the support of cuban/soviet advisors.
