Previously in the Campaign
- Episode 1 (1stMIP deployed to Kamino base on Stratis island. A training session was conducted on assault rifles and grenade launchers followed by live combat training against OpFor in a modified firing range. The team also responded to an OpFor invasion attempt of Stratis Air Base. Threat eliminated but MIPs suffered casualties. HQ has orders to increase the small unit training sessions to minimize the casualties in future operations.

    Wow! I just watched the video from Episode 1! It was great seeing all of those names and hearing the familiar voices! Hopefully I might get to join you guys some day! Good ole TG 1st MIP teamwork and action! Great campaign concept to usher in A3 to TG too! I can't play too much right now, but I am happy to help with mission development!

    Great to hear from you Loyal. We`ll be needing your coding magic during the campaign, just like PC Gamer said we need "...brain-hurting expressions of realism like Loyalguard’s functioning Chernarus Electrical Grid."

    Also great to see Hablos joning us in this episode. Welcome aboard mate.

    To share what`s in my mind, I am updating the announcement from time to time. Check it out.

    Michael, check out http://www.youtube.com/user/Armaidiot (Very useful How To Guides for mission building).

    SPOILER ALERT: I'm the one who crashed the Comanche. Truth be told, I crashed about a dozen times yesterday in single player trying to test the limits of that machine. Rocks and trees are not my friends.

    Cause of the crash(es)? Pilot error. Every. Single. Time.

    There, that was easy. Now we just have to collect that sensitive materiel from the crash site...
