The Battle of Zargabad


Fighting between the Takistan Army and UN peacekeepers have broken out in Zargabad. US/GB reinforcements are facing heavy resistance before reaching the city from the south. Only Echo13 arrives in time.

  • Played as British Infantry Squad
  • Overview/Briefing/Gear Choose
  • Full voice-acting/custom battleshouting/ambient sounds (total over 300 voicefiles)
  • Cutscenes
  • Basic infantry action on streets of heavily destroyed Zargabad (offensive, defensive tasks)
  • Friendly AI groups fighting with players
  • Many sides involved (US, British, Czech, German, UN, Takistan Army, Takistan Militian, PMC, Criminals)
  • Indoor fighting (some)
  • Ambient Life/Effects
  • Perfomance Friendly Methods

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

    Changes from SP:
  • Minefield creating system removed
  • Player group have battlecrying disabled
  • Medicpacks removed
  • Re-spawning from moving marker added
  • Mines added to ammotruck and ammocrate at hill
  • More AT-weapons at the hill
  • Intro/Outro dosent work in MP mode (still mission starts with a cutscene)

  • Known issues:
  • Radiochat isnt displayed as text when I first time tried (on second try worked fine)
  • Task status changes doesnt always display in middle of the screen (worked fine also in second try)
  • Spawning was made for SP, I expect clients seeing some spawning from nowhere (I will improve it)
  • Not sure if clients can see flies/crows

  • Notes:
    This is my first attempt to make a COOP version of this single player mission. It worked fine when I tested it alone in the server, but expect massive flaws when played with multiple players. Report freely bugs in this mission thread or at OFPEC:

    Future plans (if mission gets in playable state):
    More enemies (longer battles)

  • Many other changes/tweaks/fixes

  • Beta 4.0

  • Many other fixes and tweaks

  • Beta 3.0

  • Clients that come late to server, should receive now correct task data
  • Much other changes for clients
  • Other tweaks/changes

  • Beta 2.0
