We moved with the LAV to east of the airbase and waited for the reported to arrive by helicopter. Our sniper shot him when he was on his way to the aircraft. I immediately neutralized the Abrams with a Javelin hit. Our sniper suffered return fire, had fatal wounds and later died. We pulled back and got ready to fight. The Americans attacked with infantry, hammers and Strykers. Our SMAW gunner destroyed the attacking Stryker and the LAV (manned only by a gunner) managed to fend off the infantry and the Hummers. However, a fast Hummer SOV managed to take out two of us.
The LAV fire destroyed the radar, leaving only the A-10 targets. We didn't have a shot from that angle due to the protection of the hangars so we had to maneuver. I moved down to wake up a fallen comrade using epinephrine, and once he was up, we moved the LAV back on the over-watching hill to the north east of the base. Once the tip of the A10 noses was visible, the LAV gun opened fire using high-explosive rounds and destroyed the two aircraft. The extraction from the airbase went smoothly
and the mission was completed after so many attempts :)
Few issues were observed. However none had impact on the mission flow.
1. Only the leader saw the message "we were detected! Let's finish this fast".
2. We got the confirmation message and the objective completed green check-box about the reported being killed long after we actually shot him.
3. On a previous attempt, we believe the reporter got killed not from our fire, when he was on the way to the airplane. Maybe the chopper's back rotor indeed...
We moved forward to episode 9 - Ira Iovis which played smoothly up to the extraction part. The chopper didn't land, just kept buzzing the LZ back and forth.
A side question - where can we find translation for your mission names? It's Latin, right?
Thanks again for your work, these are some great missions.
