  • [INFO] Bear Mission Series

    Inspired by Sectors Natural Selection series and what I perceive is the mantra behind it - "Keep it simple, stupid" - I have so far made two single-objective missions called "CO27 Little Bear Part One" and "CO27 Little Bear Part Two". Both of them are played as a Russian rifle platoon consisting of:
    • Commanding Officer
    • Platoon 2ic
    • Platoon Medic
    • 3 squads
      Squad Leader
      Squad 2ic/Team Leader
      Anti Tank specialist (RPG7-PGO7)
      Assistant Anti Tank
      Machine gunner
      Grenadier
      Medic
      Rifleman/AT (RPG-18)
      Rifleman
    • Limited supplies of ammo and no extra medical supplies
    • 2xKAMAZ 5350 and 3xUAZ 469 (one armed with DShKM)


    I intend them to be played with a minimum of 10 people, but to provide a challenge at any number of players as a seeder. I am very interested in how they play out balance-wise; to many/few enemies, to skilled/dumb. How does the different kits play out and any adjustments and/or bugs. Each mission has an end trigger and also triggers to notify when an objective has been completed.

    I am off to a full week of field exercises and won't be home until Saturday/Sunday, so if the missions are played, please put comments into this thread.

        Don't mention it. I want to play these sorts of missions so why not make them? :)

        My main worry is I made the enemy to easy. I put the skill level rather low to reflect the insurgents moving in and providing poor training to their new recruits.
        Numbers is somewhat spot on as far as the amount of fire I
        received when I ran gung ho through the towns single man.

                        This evening, we played three of the four episodes of this mission. It was a great run and in my opinion, filled with the amazing teamwork we aspire for on official events. There was a point during our run through the second part, that we had all 27 slots filled and poor Biggs couldn't join. That was temporary as he got in eventually. Easy to prepare for, reasonable space to maneuver in. No time consuming travel involved, or minimal at worst. Maybe add a second 50? Those things only have 50 rounds per mag and I don't remember what they spawned with.

                        Thanks for those missions JB. Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

                        Not so much a Criticism, but a suggestion? What is everyone complaint about any mission? Not enough encounters. But, I know balance is a difficult medium to achieve. I'll play any little Bear mission you make! =)

                          Re: Litte Bear Mission Series

                          I have just submitted the entire updated series worth noting is additional AI, a thrid KAMAZ truck to ease transport of the squads, small fixes to the kits and the end triggers. I also removed the ammo crate since the platoon from my side (and POV) is kitted out with what they need and if it cuts 5 minutes off the waiting period at each start it won't be coming back.

                          My intent is to keep the focus on the infantry, so the sole purpose of the 50cal is just to provide a front security of the convoy moving out and for "actual" use, if you catch my drift.

                          Also, the next series are already under way. "COXX Air Bear Part 1" should be up by tonight!
