This SP & MP mission require ACE + ACRE (and maybe ACRL lite) for playing with more realism and it's made for squad of 7 players. In single mission all players are playable but only the sergeant and corporal have the ability to liberate the hostage so they must not die. You start near the U.S Marine corps base in Afganistan and you are in road patrol (defusing mines is your first objective) to make sure that the road is safe for the support convoy (fuel and ammo for the base). If the first objective is completed you will have fuel for your ground vehicles, if not, you will scavenge from cars and tanking the fuel from jarrycan to fill your vehicles... all resources are limited like in real life so try not to lose your HMMWs.
This mission is very realistic and all enemies are well prepared four your coming and they are not stupid. So try to use your head and brains instead of John Rambo heroics bcs it will get you killed. You have respawn in your base near the hospital and you have limited "lives" (5 lives a.k.a heavy wounds and it will make you back to hospital so try not to get killed. Penalty for that is 300 seconds). ArmA2 is combat simulator not some kid arcade game so plan your missions wisely. After each mission is completed you will get new one and this mission have 5 mission in it and all of this are realistic live combat situations. Try to use your technology advantage over the enemy: long range sniper rifles, kestrel, rangefinder binoculars and hunting monitor for scouting (in base you have huntirs rounds).
You have also for you disposal medic evacuation chopper (it will get you back to base to hospital or for ammo etc.) and ability to call it if you have long range radio and smoke grenade in your gear. Also you will have radio calls for dangerous situation code name "Broken Arrow" to get precision airstrikes, artillery fire or transport via U.S marine helicopter all over the map (watch for enemy AA units or it will shoot you down). U.S Marine corps base is fully functional and you will have there everything you need for every mission, again choose your gear wisely. Tested and play it couple of times. Without "Broken Arrow" it will be your longest day but probably your best sniper day. Hint: after every sniper shoot change your position if you are not well protected by surrounding buildings (enemy will spot you and then goes the trouble). Have fun and enjoy in your longest day.
