CWR2 ITA DLC mission pack
August 1985. It'S a hot summer of thirty years ago, when at the height of Operation Flashpoint, NATO H.Q. calls most of the member countries to intervene.
Eilte in Lower Saxony W.G. has been attacked by troops of the Warsaw Pact, West Germany asked the allied countries a prompt response to the aggression against its territory, in accordance with Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty.
After many hesitations and uncertainties, finally the Italian government decides to intervene, AMF for northern Europe is activated (Allied Mobile Force) and the single battalion of Alpine troops destined to the unit is increased with a unit of Bersaglieri mechanised infantry, a paratroopers unit plus a mixed support battalion (helicopters, armored and logistic transports), called ITALFOR.
Initially ITALFOR is sent in the north of Germany, on the border with Denmark, in order to help defending the northern German borders by soviets strikes, but immediately after a few days it moves to Nogova, where in the meantime a new crisis broke out, related to what is happening in the Malden islands.
The units of the Italian armed forces involved are the only ones with experience of missions abroad (Lebanon 1982-84) and among the best trained, the Alpine unit is also addressed to reinforce NATO in Northern Europe in case of soviet attack.
The NATO high command in Brussels along with the commanders of the units already in the Malden islands have decided to send only a mixed Italian light unit to fight for Everon, while the rest of the contingent (called ItalFor) will be used as a reserve force to 'extinguish fires of war' in the neighbouring islands, Poseidon and Drachefles, and the most important Nogova.
After years of quiet, that followed the civil war of 1982, (the rebellion carried out by former SAS operative Victor Troska) the side closest to the Soviets has reared its head, galvanised by the initial success of renegade General Guba.
Those nostalgic Nogovians allowed some airborne VDV units of the Red Army to take possession of the areas north of Nogova, under the guise of protecting the Russian-speaking population from reprisals.
This has created further concern over NATO high command, since the Soviets have armed and equipped the NLA (Nogovian Liberation Army), a terrorist movement banished from the island, but supported by the pro-communist nogovian faction.
NATO has asked the commander of Italfor 'Gen. Franco Angioni' to use much of the contingent in the stabilization of Nogova, applying the same strategies and tactics of maintaining the peace used in the mission in Lebanon; but in case of hostile actions by opponents, to use the force with decision!
Some units of VDV paratroopers have already landed and settled in the area north of Lipany, and east of Davle, occupying the only strategic bridge connecting the East with the West part of the island.
