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 -- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haqqani_network#Military_offenses http://www.nation.com.pk/pakistan-news-newspaper-daily-english-online/politics/19-Oct-2011/Operation-Knife-Edge-on-at-border
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.
Simply unpack the OPREv090.MCN_Aliabad.pbo in your ..\<ArmA2 installation>\Missions folder (you may create it first).
