    Scorpion OPS: "POISON ARROW"

    These missions chronicle the activities of SCORPION.

    The Developing Situation

    SCORPION COMMAND:This is what I have for you

    "NSA's super-computing directive NIMROD recently flagged suspicious audio communications near Kunduz, Afghanistan. Voice Translation and Analysis of a cellular call raised several alarms requiring investigation.

    The participants of the cellular call can be heard discussing, in English, several topics of conversation concerning transportation of an object referred to simply as 'tools'. A voice in the background of the call can be heard saying 'Triggered Arc Regulator' which are highly specialized electo-mechanical devices. Voice matching has identified a local militia leader named Abu al-Bari as the person speaking on the receiving end of the call.

    Subsequent research and review of defense contractor manufacturing records report a recent incident in which a TAR was misplaced and has not yet been recovered, this incident is now being treated as a theft.

    39 hours after the intercepted communications, the positive identification of Abu-al-bari, and the discovery of the stolen TAR, the situation now has the President and DOD's full attention and we've been ordered to investigate and intercept.

    Triggered Arc Regulators have two specific functions, the first is used in the ignition of very large rocket motors and the second is used to start the detonation sequence of fission-based nuclear weapons."

    ************************************************** **********************************************

    Area of Operation: Kunduz has waxed and waned under extremist control since the late 90's and it's concentration of militia-controlled regions makes it one of the most dangerous places in Afghanistan. From west to east, half of the region is an elevated plateau which holds various compounds and strongholds containing Abu al-Bari's militia. Most of the civilians were chased out over two years ago so assume all armed individuals are hostile.

    Execution: Scorpion element will move out from camp and strike the Plateau from the North East. Surveillance shows heavy fortifications surrounding the area so a focused, non-separated approach is suggested to punch through enemy lines. The ground around Kunduz is uneven providing many different areas of cover simply by navigating through the gullies and valleys on the plateau.

    Mission Specific Details and Tools

    OPENING AND CLOSING DOORS - Use LEFT CNTL + SPACE BAR to open ANY and ALL doors. There is a bug on Kunduz that freezes doors in place, but the ACE mechanic of using control and space bar overrides this caveat.

    BREACHING COMPOUNDS AND THE TACTICAL LADDER - The compound walls of Kunduz can be breached by using breaching charges. Tactical Ladders can also be deployed to climb over compound walls. NOTE: Do NOT use Satchel charges or large demolition charges for this task. You will likely kill yourself and many people around you if you're not careful with the bombs.

    ADVICE FOR SQUAD LEADS - Wet teams consist of two three man fireteams. This is done deliberately to maximize the use of cover while breaking and breaching a compound. Use the Senior Operators to manage their own three man fireteam and stick together and operate the squad as one.

    GEAR AND REARM - There are no arsenals or additional weapons to choose from, however there are a lot of additional tools at your disposal including generous amounts of ammo, equipment and explosives found in each team's Offroad Vehicle.

    VEHICLES - The Offroads should be well protected by the teams and not used for recon in any manner. The enemy in the AO is known for their use of RPGs and other explosives so keep that in mind. Trucks are to be used for field rearm, transport from point to point behind FRIENDLY lines and re-enforcement ferry to the front. The Repair Offroad vehicle has an extended inventory and accelerates medical and repair efforts to those in its 5m range.

    MEDICS - (ACE BASIC WOUNDS) Medics are recommended to operate independently of the squads and to remain with the command element. CCPs should be established and advertised to nearby wet teams and medics should organize rescue efforts with the team members of wounded operators, only Medics can use Epinephrine and can heal injured players more efficiently when in range of the repair Offroad. The carry option is accessed through the ACE Health Menu.

    A NOTE ON THE TECHNICAL OPERATOR - Tech Ops play several roles in SCORPION including command assistance, repair, engineering, demolitions, tactical surveillance and mission-asset protection.

    THE SHARPSHOOTER - The Sharpshooter has an adjustable scope so make sure you have an understanding of the optics in ACE.
