    Alright 29th! It's that time of the month again!

    We're hosting yet another public operation and we're delivering a personal invitation to you guys once again.

    Operation Details:

    > Operation Circuit Breaker

    Background
    Forward In Arms (FIA) is a nascent insurrectionist faction intent on restoring CSAT rule to Altis through the destruction of the current AAF Government. This faction has been highly successful in eroding the both the military and government infrastructures, securing government supplies and equipment, and rallying civilians to their cause through extortion, racketeering, ransom, and bribery.Should the FIA succeed, it would represent yet another massive destabilization of NATO hegemony in the mediterranean region. Despite successful combat operations in and around Agios Dionysios, FIA continues to mount major combat operations in Altis. At 0200 hours last night, FIA sleeper cells on the Molos archipelago seized control of the Molos Airfield and all assets therein, executing all AAF members within the base. Further, a shipping container leaving Altis was secretly carrying a large force of FIA members. This impromptu amphibious assault has left all towns up to Sofia under FIA control.

    The 242nd Nightstalkers is an infantry focused realism unit that focuses on serious fun. We believe that the experience that ArmA 3 provides: a serious, challenging, teamwork based environment is in of itself the most enjoyable way to play a PC game.

    Our previous operation saw numbers over 40 players in stable, cooperative environment, and we are certain that this one will see even more. There is no discrimination between groups and players.

    CO55 - Operation Direct Current

    Background
    Forward In Arms (FIA) is a nascent insurrectionist faction intent on restoring CSAT rule to Altis through the destruction of the current AAF Government. This faction has been highly successful in eroding the both the military and government infrastructures, securing government supplies and equipment, and rallying civilians to their cause through extortion, racketeering, ransom, and bribery.Should the FIA succeed, it would represent yet another massive destabilization of NATO hegemony in the mediterranean region. Despite successful combat operations for the past few months by NATO forces, FIA continues to mount major combat operations in Altis against AAF government forces.

    Despite significant efforts over the past few months, FIA forces remain in firm control over the Oreocastro Mountains. Multiple AAF infantry, motorized attacks with the aim of dislodging the FIA forces have all launched to no avail. To complicate matters further, FIA units have compromised several wind turbines in the area. These wind turbines are responsible for providing power to the Oreocastro area and have not been sabotaged. However, the fact that a major part of the Altis power grid is in enemy hands cannot be ignored. In the event of a major offensive, FIA could easily afford to cut power to major airfields in order to disrupt our operations.

    CSAT Officers who have gone turncoat after the events of Operation Circuit Breaker have marked a number of points of interest and have confirmed that CSAT will be arming the FIA directly in order to provide a counterweight to NATO operations.

    Situation - Enemy
    Company plus sized command occupies occupies Oreocastro mountains in a highly complex patrol rotation. These rotations are seemingly random and have now allowed us to directly determine where guards and defenses will be posted at any given time. It is believed that hostile forces attempting to project the appearance of a larger force than is actually present. However,

    ESTIMATIONS
    x3 - x4 Rifle Platoon
    x1 Command Element
    x6-x12 AAF and CSAT motorized Vehicles
    x3-x4 AAF Mechanized Vehicles
    No fewer than 2 Tanks
    x1 Mortar weapon
    x2 CSAT Anti-Aircraft Emplacement
    x4 Manpad squad

    Situation - Friendly
    Nato Motorized Platoon with attached mechanized, armored and helicopter assets totaling 35 infantry soldiers organized into three squads and one headquarters; three AMV-7 IFVs and One Merkava MK IV Urban Warfare tank.

    x4 Rifle Squad each with x1 Titan Missile Launcher, x1 Marksman Weapon and x1 Medium Machinegun
    x1 Weapons Team with x2 Medium Machinegun, x1 Grenade CSW, x1 Titan Missile Launcher
    x2 Merkava MK IV Urban Warfare Tank
    x4 AMV-7 Patria
    AMV

    Infantry
    x4 Rifle Squad (Variable)
    x1 Weapons Team (Variable)
    x1 HQ Section (Variable)

    Mission
    242nd Nightstalkers are tasked with the liberation of the Oreocastro Mountains including Oreocastro Proper, and Oreocastro castle. Company sized force will depart from Forward Base Tanto to secure power plants and powerline objectives at Rasalhague, Steiner and Liao. Investigation of special areas marked out by CSAT turncoats at Objective Marik and seizure of Oreocastro Castle and Oreocastro proper at Objectives Kurita and Davion.

    Objective MARIK - Investigate Intelligence
    Objective RASALHAGUE - Preserve and Secure Powerplant Objective
    Objective STEINER - Preserve and Secure Powerplant Objective
    Objective LIAO - Preserve and Secure Powerplant Objective
    Objective KURITA - Secure Oreocastro Castle, preserve structure integrity.
    Objective DAVION - Secure Oreocastro Proper, preserve town integrity.

    Objective Kurita represents a significant cultural Icon. For obvious reasons, high command is hesitant to drop a JDAM on top of a 1000 year old castle. This objective must be secured, not leveled.

    Execution
    Nightstalkers Elements will move mounted beyond phase-line nova before dismounting due to ATGM threat. Dispersion should be and bases of fire should be established prior to making contact with objective MARIK. Dispersion to secure objectives RASALHAGUE, STEINER and LIAO is up to Company Command. However, maximum force application will be required to secure KURITA and DAVION objectives. Mission will conclude when all assets have returned to base.

    Hello again 29th ID! The 242nd Nightstalkers is at it again with Mission IV of our very successful public campaign.
    Rundown is the same as it's been: hop in at 1930 EST on May 16th, mission starts at 2000; we run Task-force Arrowhead Radio. Since these past few missions have been such a curb stomp, including Direct Current, I've decided to up the ante on difficulty. Expect a real fight this time!

    Arc Flash Campaign Mission IV - Operation Toaster Fire

    Forward In Arms (FIA) is a nascent insurrectionist faction intent on restoring CSAT rule to Altis through the destruction of the current AAF Government. This faction has been highly successful in eroding the both the military and government infrastructures, securing government supplies and equipment, and rallying civilians to their cause through extortion, racketeering, ransom, and bribery.Should the FIA succeed, it would represent yet another massive destabilization of NATO hegemony in the Mediterranean region. Pressure from the 242nd Nightstalkers has put the FIA military force on the run as CSAT struggles to make resupply operations. FIA Forces are finally contained within the capital city at Kavala, and the Provisional Government in Pyrgos continues to prepare to reinstate itself following Kavala.

    Last night, a FIA sleeper cell assisted a large force of FIA commandos and regulars in seizing the missile base on Drimea Island. The island was the site of a number of defensive missile systems including: 3 THAAD Block 3 ABM installations, x1 AGM-270 “Artemis IV” anti ship missile battery, x1 GGM-340 “Peacemaker” heavy missile complex, and a fully functional Iron Beam laser point defense complex. Using their sleeper cell, FIA Forces were able to instigate a full system blackout for approximately 30 seconds which allowed their artillery forces shells, helicopters and missile systems to penetrate the area, disorient defenders, and make way for the commando raid.

    This missile installation represents a critical failure on the part of the AAF to defend their own assets. However, this threat cannot be allowed to persist. The 242nd Nightstalkers are tasked with retaking Drimea Island from the AAF forces and restoring the missile system, or denying it to enemy forces.

    We hope to see you there!

    Longtime no see, 29th!

    Tomorrow at 1900 EST, the 242nd is going to be running a rather relaxed public mission on our server. This is a persistent mission that we've had some runs with, and is currently in a stable position. Unlike the Arc Flash missions, this mission uses optimized, procedural AI generation to ensure the best possible experience while limiting load to all clients. This is a very fun game, and we hope to see you there! We've tried to maintain a high standard for our missions before, and the same standards will apply, but with some more relaxed and fun gameplay. Players will be allowed to JIP, Drop in and out. 29th ID has shown preference to organizing it's own squads and melds well with 242's orbat. If you maintain this preference then we can accommodate you as always. We hope to see you guys tomorrow!

    This Weekend, Saturday November the 11th, the 242nd Nightstalkers will be hosting a public operation at 1930 EST.
    This operation will shadow our standard operations in complexity, rulesets, and difficulty, but will use a very accessible modpack to allow others to join in on the fun. Expect many roles to be fulfilled, from infantrymen and medics, to tank crewmen and combat pilots. The enemy will be a well-equipped, aggressive foe capable of dynamically employing artillery and airpower to support their ground teams, and hold their objectives against the NATO advance. Our past few operations saw a strong player count, and we hope to see increased counts for these sessions. This campaign has been a long time in the running, attending persons will join a hard-fought battle spanning over half a dozen missions. Those who choose to continue to attend the sessions will see the effects of their actions reflected in future missions, success, or failure.
