Patrol Operations 3


Patrol Operations is a dynamic, random mission series that is great for both mass public play and clan tactical gaming.
Missions are randomly dynamic, with enemy force strength scaled to match the number of players connected so as to challenge players appropriately.

      - Defending positions including occupation of static defenses and nearby buildings
      - Randomly Patrolling Areas increasing likelihood off flanking attacks
  • HUD

      - Active 3D Hud showing Squad Details
      - Assigned Colours also linked into ShackTac's HUD (ST_HUD Not Required)
      - 3D Hud use linked to the requirement of AR equipment such as Tactical Goggles and Pilot Helmets

      - Create Supply boxes for infantry at supply points and airlift them to the front-line or load them on the back of trucks
      - Vehicle Towing by Large Trucks and CRVs
