In honour of those brave men who near 68 years ago performed one of the greatest combined operations assaults to help bring an end to the German occupation of Europe. Tactical Gamer, Rusty In Places and Tour of Teamrespawn are proud to announce a month long celebration of the 1944 Normandy Landings.
The actual landings took place on 6th June 1944 which was then followed by over 30 days of fighting to liberate France. Initially starting just after midnight with an airborne assault of 24,000 men from Britain, America, Canada and France, then the more famous amphibious landings plus armoured battles staged in order to divert the enemy from the real assault.
To help re-enact some of these battles, we are joining forces for a month and coop gaming with vintage weapons using the I44 mod for Arma2. With custom missions provided by TG and Tour to provide a unique experience and help strengthen our communities that would make General’s Eisenhower and Montgomery proud.
Agenda for June 2012
- Sunday 3rd June – Airborne Insertion
Sunday 10th June – Armour battle or Beach landing
Sunday 24th June – Le Battle – a huge combined ops battle for up to 60 slots (or more)
All events will be starting on the dot by 1900 GMT (2000 BST / 1500 EST) with roll call and muster starting an hour before.
All events staged on a password protected TG supplied server.
In game comms will be used during the mission, so communities may use their own TS3 channels.
Only the I44 mod is required. TG has created a custom yml to assist with configuring your game. If you have Six Updater installed then click on the following link to launch SU & create a new preset with the allowed mods.
Missions are to be confirmed, more info will be released closer to each event.
