    Notes:
    I intended to create this campaign with the thought in mind, that the player is only a small part in a big fighting force. The mission design is on purpose. There is no teamswitch available live with it. There is no weapons choice in the briefing, since you are not in command. You start with what you're given and you end up with whatever you can scrounge. The campaign is infantry based it is not intended to be realistic, it should be fun to play. So you are not a superhuman special force soldier, you are a simple machinegunner in a mechanized Infantry division. I tried to recreate the feeling of a huge conflict where the player is just a single soldier doing his part in the ongoing war. This campaign has a plot which evolves. Intro and outros are an important part of this campaign.
    The campaign is quite easy and not to challenging, forces are mostly balanced.

    Progress on the campaign was extremely slow due to RL issues and my destracted nature when it comes to ArmA. The modding community is hyperactive. Even playing 24/7 you can't check out everything which has been created for this game.
