  • Behind Enemy Lines (ArmA)

    I have a love/hate relationship with this game... so many good qualities in this game, but also so many shortcomings...


    I played this mission last night on our SimHQ server, I was the only one on... so the rest were AI... It went perfect last night with no deaths, no stupid screw ups and a mission complete. So I said, "hell, I'm going to play that mission again and do an AAR on it"... well I did, as luck would have it, not all went as planned... still a very fun small unit mission. Great Job to the mission designer, who I believe was NIXER, for a short and sweet, small unit SF mission.


    Mission: Behind Enemy Lines
    Designer: Nixer

    Task: Take your 5 man SF unit behind enemy lines into a small town, Kill the officer in charge and then destroy a "police car" that is carrying sensitive documents about friendly positions and operations. Then reach your extraction point.


    We move out from the insertion point in a wedge formation, I order the team in danger mode, and to hold fire:


    As we get closer to the objective town, I order the team to go prone and move up to a line formation, I also give them a fire at will command due to the fact that my left side is reporting contacts danger close:


    After taking out a couple of near by patrols with our silenced weapons, I scan the area of operation with my binos and come up with a plan of action:




    I then order my men up, and in column formation as we sprint across the danger zone to the nearest building:


    We stack up against the walls as we move from cover to cover, clearing as we go:


    We come to the corner wall, in the corner of the town. I scan our flanks for targets, all clear, we prepare to move into the town:


    I scan the main road for enemy patrols or positions:


    A enemy patrol comes up behind us, the rear man is taken out, I get wounded even thou I'm the furtherest away from the enemy:


    I heal myself a little, we are after all SF troops, and then engage the rest of the enemy patrol:


    So I lost a man already, and have another injured. Who I order to heal self:


    We then see the enemy camp, the smoke billows from the fire and we see the tents, a couple of grenades over the wall take care of the enemies in the small camp, including the officer in charge:


    As we then form back up and move around the next corner, another enemy squad is spotted and we engage:






    A couple of enemy troops try to flank our left, but my men are on it with there lazer guns:


    We think it's clear, and begin moving to the second objective, A enemy surprises me at my 2 O'clock, I don't have time to pull the weapon sight to my eye, I just let loose of about 10 rounds, and the enemy soldier falls:


    My number 2 man wasn't so lucky, he goes down, now I've lost 2:


    I set up the demo charges on the police vehicle while my team covers me, I then fall back and order my men to do the same. One fails to listen or comply to orders to "fall back into formation", or even "move here"... after a number of tries, and a complete lack of compliance from my soldier (he must not be happy with me losing 2 men already,lol) anyway... I blow it, the objective must and is completed. But the blast throws the defiant soldier against a stone wall and he is instantly killed:


    So now I lost three, I order my last soldier to fall in and we sprint out of the town towards the extraction, he quickly complies (probably saw what happened to number 3,lol):


    We continue to run towards extraction zone:


    We arrive at the extraction and load the Blackhawk, Mission Complete:


    The end...

    Fantastic small size mission, alot of action, easy for a full MP team, but as you can see working with the AI has issues. lol

    Nice AAR Magnum. I've never really spent the time with the AI to be halfway proficient with them, but I guess it beats staring at an empty server ;)

    btw, is that the plant colour mod (autumn?) you have going there?

        I haven't downloaded it yet, but thought about it. Adds a nice touch to the scenery, I'll have to give it a shot.

            Sorry to veer even further off topic, but I figured I'd throw up the link for the mod:

                        Any chance of a download link for this? I can't seem to find one anywhere.

                          This topic made me re-install ArmA and patch it up again to play it :P

                          Thought to put my ArmA screenshots of the destroy convoy mission because I planned it so awsomely. :)

                          Keep it up man, love these!
