Op. Razor's Edge

Alex / HeadUp

Inspired by the real-life Operation Knife Edge that took place in mid-October of 2011, involving Special Forces from the US and Afghan National Army working together to clear the remote border province of Paktika of a training camp used by the Haqqani network, one of the most dangerous militant groups to threaten NATO and the Afghan Government --

Many of the names have been changed, but they're all very close to what I've been able to research about the op. The campaign gives players control of a fire team from Tier One AFO Bourbon, with orders to rendezvous with the ANA's 3rd Brigade, 213th Corps in Hadiz after inserting in the ridge to the south via MH-6J. After clearing two villages in the AO, AFO Bourbon must talk to the inhabitants with the help of your newly-embedded translator from the ANA in order to determine the location of a Haaquni network training camp, which is occupied by a substantial number of Haaquni, Taliban, and Chechen extremists. There will also be a series of bonus objectives, such as rescuing a soldier from the BAF who is being held hostage, and locating a deep-cover operative who will join your squad once found. Similar to Croc Hunt, the battlefield will have more going on than just what your team is up to-- this is an Afghan-led operation, with squads from 3rd Bn. hunting the AO for Haaquni strongholds.

  • New mission for the excellent Aliabad region
  • Insanely detailed briefing with background on the region and OPFOR
  • Lots of dialogue (although sadly no voice acting for now)
  • Choose your loadout during the briefing or on-board the insertion chopper
  • Utilizes simple house lighting script by TPW for extra beautiful color and detail
  • You are part of a larger operation and will have to check fire for civvies, friendlies and non-hostile militias
  • Call in CAS support, make use of allied ANA armor and ground troops
  • New objectives and map markers added while in-mission

  • Installation:
    Simply unpack the OPREv090.MCN_Aliabad.pbo in your ..\<ArmA2 installation>\Missions folder (you may create it first).
