OP Restrepo Complete with KOP
This is my recreation of the Outpost in the Korengal Valley known as Restrepo I have also added the KORENGAL OUTPOST (KOP) as well.
I have placed this to the best of my ability. The placement is not perfect however due to the limitations of the maps terrain.
Restrepo is a 2010 documentary film about the Afghanistan war, directed by American journalist Sebastian Junger and British/American photojournalist Tim Hetherington.
The film explores the year that Junger and Hetherington spent in Afghanistan on assignment for Vanity Fair Magazine ,embedded with the Second Platoon, B Company, 2nd Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment (airborne), 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team of the U.S. Army in the Korengal Valley.
The 2nd Platoon is depicted defending an Observation Post (OP) named OP Restrepo, for PFC Juan Sebastián Restrepo, a Colombian-born naturalized U.S. citizen platoon medic who was killed earlier in the campaign.
This OP came to existence and got its name through a mans loss of life.
I just figured that this should be added in let us not forget that.
I hope that by making it for people in the game that it can live on and always be remembered.
Remember those who fought there and died there as well as the man who went there to bring back the footage for all to see what they went through and to Remember Restrepo.
Tim Hetherington was killed shortly after making this documentary Film while he was in Libya.For those who havent seen this film ,I encourage you to watch it.

Make your own mission contents = FOB%20Restrepo.Torabora folder form to put in the editor
This folder is for you to build your very own mission on Torabora using the FOB and KOP you can make your own Operation Rockslide.
1.) You'll need to be carefully when entering bunkers to get to the gun positions as sometimes it will glitch and knock you out.
2.) The Chinook ride is somewhat glitchy just change your view to the inside of the chinook and its not so bad. I don't know if this can be helped,I used Unitcapture/Unitplay to record the flight.
3.)Last but not least upon arrival to the OP you will need to watch when the Chinook is hovering it will hover first over the OP then get into position wait for the back tire to sit
almost over the bunker and lower it wont touch however. You'll have a short window of opportunity to exit unharmed after about 10seconds of hover over the bunker the Chinook will leave back to the KOP.
4.)Sometimes after leaving back to the KOP the Engine of the Chinook stays on and is barely audible from the OP but you can hear it still on at times.
1.)The placement is not perfect however due to the limitations of the maps terrain.
2.)the KOP is not where it really should be, in real life the KOP was going to be placed in WANAT but the locals and area taliban didnt like that as a result the Battle of Wanat took place.
Restrepo cannot be seen from the KOP Sorry as the terrain sets too high at the backside of the OP and the bastions are not visible from the KOP.
Maybe if I were to place bastions on the backside of the OP and then use a View Distance fix you could see a bastion or two but for now no.
You cannot see the KOP from the OP either even with optics,again maybe a view distance fix might allow it however the City of Wanat is very visible but the KOP sits near it so the Roofs block the Visibility of the KOP for the most part from the OP.
Sorry some things just cant be done. I recreate things within the limitations as thats all I can do for now.
3.) FOB Restrepo You start at the Korengal Outpost. The Chinook will start its Engines and then you can enter and once all are aboard you use the radio to select fly to OP.
FOB Restrepo evening You start at the OP Restrepo.
You will see a campfire with tires surrounding and a soldier sitting on a tire with a guitar walk toward the campfire and the soldier will play the Guitar.
The song "Never Forget where I'm From" from the film will play,shortly after the song starts you will see towards the gully a red flare launched in Remembrance of Juan Sebastion Restrepo.
