  • Operation Paul Bunyan

    Anyone want to help me make a mission based on this event?
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Paul_Bunyan

    -Forces
    Operation Paul Bunyan was carried out on August 21 at 7 AM, just three days after the killings. A convoy of 23 American and South Korean vehicles (‘Task Force Vierra’, named for Lieutenant Colonel Victor S. Vierra, commander of the United States Army Support Group) drove into the JSA without any warning to the North Koreans, who only had one observation post manned at that early hour. In the vehicles were two eight-man teams of military engineers (from the 2nd Engineer Battalion, 2nd Infantry Division) equipped with chain-saws to cut down the tree. These teams were accompanied by two 30-man security platoons from the Joint Security Force, who were armed with pistols and axe handles. The 2nd Platoon would secure the northern entrance to the JSA via the “Bridge of No Return”, while the 3rd Platoon would secure the southern edge of the area.
    Concurrently, a team from B Company, commanded by CPT Walter Seifried, had activated the detonation systems for the charges on Freedom Bridge and had the 165mm main gun of the M728 Combat Engineer Vehicle aimed mid-span to ensure that the bridge would fall should the order be given for its destruction. Also B Company, supporting E Company (Bridge), commanded by CPT Williams, were building M4T6 rafts on the Imjin River should the situation require emergency evacuation by that route.
    In addition, a 64-man ROK special forces company accompanied them, armed with clubs and trained in Tae Kwon Do, supposedly without firearms. However, once they parked their trucks near the Bridge of No Return, they started throwing out the sandbags that lined the truck bottoms, and handing out M-16 rifles and M-79 grenade launchers that had been concealed below.[1]

    HAHA my favorite part
    Several of the special forces men also had Claymore mines strapped to their chests with the firing mechanism in their hands, and were shouting at the North Koreans to cross the bridge.[10][11]

    I don't think it would be doable: the operation was completed without any firefight AND we would need to have hundreds of AI soldiers running around, not to mention B52 bombers, and escorts, and gunships, and combat heloes and a lot of other things.
    And it would end up with the server dead and angry people leaving, and lots of complaining and...

        Yeah I was going to "change" history a little bit. Less peeps and a firefight ;)

        Probably would make it a small quick mission.

        Someone sent this to me, I'm pretty sure it happened as there are pictures of the event.

          Yeah, had read and heard about this a few times, WTF seems to be the most appropriate response to hearing about it for the first time.

            I think you should make this into a short TVT and construct the "Bridge of No Return".

              Yeah, change history a bit on this, to create a fight. Just mention that the mission is "based off" true events. I can help you out with this Igor.

                My **** is bigger than yours scenarios don't always work, because of the need for the emotional backdrop to make it what it was.
                But I must admit, that is a very WTF situation...

                  I'm sure we can find someone in the TG community who is packing enough... uh.. in the lower quarters to make this mission work.
