Thought as just one mission in a series of High Command missions building on the Arma 2 campaign "Harvest Red", this one replicates the assault on Chernogorsk, seen through Sgt. Cooper's eyes in the original campaign. Now you get a shot at commanding part of the task force recently landed on the beaches of Chernarus and take the city. Razor team did figure in my mission originally, but I decided to cut it and add a generic SF team, Fishbone, in the assault. This is both because it would seem odd if Razor Team got killed, and also because I have tried, to the best of my knowledge, to recreate a mission as close to reality as possible while still keeping playability and fun in focus.
Extract the .pbo file(s) to your ArmA2 Operation Arrowhead\Missions folder.
The mission is tested extensively with the following mods, and they should really enhance the experience. Personally I never play without these:
JSRS sound mod: http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?104514-J-S-R-S-1-4-2
Extremely realistic sounds.
WarFX Blastcore: http://forums.bistudio.com/showthread.php?111985-WarFX-Blastcore
Improved smoke, dust and explosions.
Binkowskis Marines: http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=14608 and http://www.armaholic.com/page.php?id=14613
Better looking marines.
Better and more realistic field-of-view and nicer user interface.
Beautiful sun and lightning effects.
Mods are of course a matter of personal taste, and it is also completely up to you which ones to use. I believe that the mission is actually easier with ACE, as realistic armor penetration favours your Abrams and increases their survivablity. This is more realistic, and I personally believe you'll get an overall better experience with ACE and the above mods. This is how the mission was envisaged to be played.
Things to do:
Complete and streamline the briefing.
Maybe add some markers in the briefing.
Add voices instead of text only in-game messages (will probably never get it done).
