Operation Atavist ~The Story So Far~
As the political situation in the eastern european country of Vasaria worsens, the local government has requested NATO intervention. Rebels have seized large portions of the country and the NATO friendly government seems on the verge of collapse. The UN Security Council has been unable to do more than to demand hostilities in Vesaria to cease. Russian and China have both blocked a proposal to send in a NATO peace keeping force, claiming it as a would destabilize the situation more than it already is.
The Vasaria Freedom Party(VFP) is an enigma, its origins and funding are a not clear. Its xenophobic and nationalistic propaganda are extreme, yet also at odds with the multinational make up of its armed fighters. A mixture of captured government equipment and modern military tech of Russian, Chinese, North Korean and Iranian origin are unexplained. Only the North Korean government has made any statements of support for the rebel movement. Western intelligence agencies claim this rebel movement is being funded by multiple terrorist organizations and foreign Intelligence agencies. The VFP's speed, organization and ruthlessness have been surprising. No photos or video of the groups leader exist, even the leaders true name is unknown. Reports of Russian military "advisers" have not been confirmed on the ground, and have been denied by the Russia's ambassador to the U.N. What has been confirmed are multiple mass killings and other atrocities that are U.S. and British Intelligence say they confirm through satellite intelligence.
With NATO unable to assist directly with lethal aid, the government is begging the international community for help. While western nations seek peace talks, there has been no response from the rebels. The situation seems to be getting worse. Western intelligence agencies deny supplying lethal aid to the government, stating only humanitarian aid has been approved by all western governments. Reports of western PMC's such as the 25th ARAIG in Vasaria's Capital only seem to make the situation more complex. A PMC unit as large and as well equipped as the 25th could greatly improve the government's situation on the ground. The Vasarian Defense Minister Jan Kubek denied the 25th ARAIG had been hired by his government. Maj. Brown and 1st Lt. Jones of the 25th ARAIG command team have been photographed coming and going from the defense ministry. A convoy containing the bulk of the 25th ARAIG has allegedly been spotted moving north from the capital east towards the Vasarian province of Bystrica.
Bystrica, last of the eastern provinces not in rebel hands, was seized last month in a lightning campaign by the Charlovi Battalion. The unit was a loyal government formation, which marched out of barracks last month to join the rebellion. In recent years the Charlovi Battalion was deployed to the middle east in a combat role with NATO. This was part of a NATO training and review program. The program was to train and evaluate Vasaria and its military, for NATO membership. It is alleged that the Charlovi Battalion was ordered to Barracks, after refusing to act against local rebels. Soon after the Charlovi Battalion seized a local radio station, broadcast accusations of crimes and atrocities by the Vasarian Government. When the rogue unit seized Bystrica, government units fled after reports of the units efficiency and brutality.
What is this?
Operation Atavist for Arma3 will be a on going single life(realism),elite(first person only), TvT event. The Charlie Company of the 29th Infantry Division is working with the 25th ARAIG to create this regular event. An event which is story driven, with goals, rewards and consequences. Units will take turns on OpFor and Bluefor for 3 month rotation. The rotation will give enough time for units to take part in complex multi-mission operations. While at the same time taking turns as liberating forces and brutal forces of repression. Charlie Company of the 29th ID will start as a brutal rebel force,the Charlovi Battalion, while the 25th ARAIG begins Operation Atavist as a PMC hired to free lands seized by the Charlovi Battalion. While Units will be playing "baddies" on Opfor and "heros" on Bluefor, scenarios will be designed to create a balanced fight where units can put their training to test. 29th Members wish your Battalion mates good luck for their first outing in Operation Atavist. Arma3 thrives on events like these, now lets see what happens when the 29th teams up with the 25th ARAIG.
