Afghan War Diary: India Echo Delta

This mission is based on a real event that can be found in the Afghan
War Diary. The real report can be found here.

You are the leader of Task Force Bayonet which is sent on a patrol through Sakhe. The patrol is meant to be a show of force ordered because of increased insurgent activity in the area. One Apache helicopter is on standby should you require close air support. A small Chernarussion UN detachment is also on standby at the US base in Takistan.

  • Inspired by an actual report of an IED ambush in Afghanistan in 2006
  • Playable in SP with ARMA2: Operation Arrowhead standalone
  • Fast paced with lots of action
  • No required addons!

  • Installation:
    Extract the .pbo file(s) to your ArmA 2 Operation Arrowhead\Missions folder.

    Known issues:
    Once in awhile the player might be killed by IED explosion.
    Sometimes the Chinook sent for extraction doesn't like to land until the player tells the group to board the chopper.

    This mission will work with either ARMA2: Operation Arrowhead standalone or Combined Operations, but will NOT work with ARMA2 vanilla.
    This is my first mission and as such I welcome any comments/suggestions/constructive criticism to help improve this mission
    and all future missions I will make.

  • Less enemies: this makes it feel a lot less like the classic "one man against the entire red army" and feels more realistic
  • UN is inserted via M113 instead of Mi8: the Mi8 refused to land sometimes which was really frustrating
  • Changed middle HMMWV to armored with M2: adds the option of another M2 to use and keeps the mission closer to the actual report
  • Added radio triggers for support instead of everything happening automatically: this adds some replay value because the player can complete the mission without utilizing any support at all or the player can utilize all support if he wishes to.
  • Changed/added some sideChat to go along with new radio triggers

  • Credits & thanks:
    This mission uses tcp's IED/Suicide Bomber script.
