Operation HELO Havoc


This mission was designed primarily for practice and fun with the attack helicopters available in ARMA 3 so there are
no formal assigned tasks. That being said, if you choose to test your skills and engage the three OPFOR bases you will
have your hands full! At Stratis Air Base you will find a large supply of KA-60 and AH-9 helos to practice with. For
your amusement there are also GMG and HMG Hunters parked near the spawn point should you wish to play with them. At the
southern end of Stratis Air Base there are five gunboats parked at the piers that can be used to engage the OPFOR
gunboats patrolling in the waters around Stratis Air Base. There's also a supply of quads parked near the spawn point
so you can move around the base more quickly to access the helos, vehicles, and gunboats. If you find yourself in need
of more assets there is a secondary BLUFOR base at Camp Maxwell with additional choppers and vehicles. To be honest,
there are times when I simply grab a quad for the fun of it and use it to jump the little hills that are near the tower
and hangars. If it gets wrecked, no harm, no foul! One additional asset available to you is a Virtual Ammo Box (VAS
version 0.9 using the scripts written by Tonic) that is positioned near the spawn point. Indulge yourselves with a
deluxe loadout!

If you want to run some assault missions, here is a short list of things you can try to do:
  1. Grab a HELO and destroy the OPFOR IFRIT HMG convoy leaving Camp Rogain. It is enroute to Stratis Air Base and it
    WILL damage your assets if you don't take it out!
  2. Grab a HELO, HMG/GMG, or gunboat and destroy the aggressive OPFOR gunboats that are patrolling the waters near
    Stratis Air Base. They WILL cause damage to your choppers if you ignore them.
  3. Grab a HELO and destroy all OPFOR assets at Air Station Mike. There are numerous armed IFRITS on patrol and others
    positioned to defend the base from all sides. Good luck with this task!
  4. Grab a HELO and clean out the OPFOR assets in the Kamino area. A large number of armed IFRITS and gunboats make this
    a tough target. There are also numerous trigger happy ground troops in the Kamino Bay area that can take you down.

Keep in mind that the OPFOR defenses are quite aggressive and you will no doubt discover that their kill zones overlap
so you can end up with heavy damage very quickly. If you simply want to practice your chopper flying skills I would
suggest operating around the northern end of Stratis Air Base which is fairly well defended by BLUFOR HMG Hunters that are on patrol there.

Knock yourselves out and have fun!
