Operation Black Thunder

INSCOM just got confirmation that a UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter delivering supplies to the locals, was shot down by an RPG. Satellites confirm that there are 2 pilots that are alive down there.

Your team is being tasked as the first wave to go in and secure the pilots. Once you have secured their location proceed to the extraction point where a helicopter will exfiltrate your team and the pilots.

You're going in and getting out hot so be prepared. Civilians are out there as well, so make sure to check your targets.

Operation Black Thunder is a go, good luck gentlemen we're counting you.

  • Dynamic Battles
  • Helicopter Insertion and Extraction
  • 6 Weapons to choose from in the Gear menu at the Briefing.
  • Custom Music
  • Downtown Zargabad.
  • AH-64D Helicopter over watch

Extract the .pbo file(s) to your ArmA2 Operation Arrowhead\Missions folder to play in singleplayer.
Extract the .pbo file to your ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead\MissionsMP folder to play in multiplayer co-op.

Known issues:
Apaches fly a bit too low.
