Yes we are still active!

Had a few people ask if our unit was still active.   The answer is yes!   


Most of our activity happens not so much here on our main site, but on our discord server which is where we chat, post stuff and plan our missions.

We have already run several missions this year on different game environments such as Vietnam (Unsung), as well as some vanilla missions on various maps.  See our #events channel in discord for information on the latest events, where you can also RSVP for them.

Operation Deadly Spring

Posted by Valour - 08 Sep 2019 11:40 PM



Operation Deadly Spring was conducted on 4 Sept.   This mission saw the final demise of the Brotherhood of jihad, with their financier, their funds and their remaining troops and equipment destroyed.


The mission provided challenges with sometimes unreliable transport and heavy contact with the enemy around several key areas.   The final task was difficult however with support it was achieved.


A secret trap door was finally located revealing intelligence on enemy communications.  The radio equipment was located in a tunnel system near the river to the east.


There were some issues with organisation and the use of enemy uniforms by OCB members which wasn't helpful to the mission.

The main task, clearance of mines and IED was completed with most devices located and destroyed or disarmed.   Some heavy contact towards the end of the route provided a good challenge.


Laurance was actually given the task of providing air support, and he did so without killing any friendlies!   Nice work.  :P


Contacts to the east near Anbar Tappeh were fierce around the IED factory, but we prevailed.    Well done to all.

Australians in Vietnam

Posted by Valour - 19 Aug 2019 03:23 PM



Australian Troops are deployed in Vietnam at the 1st Australian Task Force base at Nui Dat in the Phuoc Tuy Province.

They are engaged in a counter insurgency against the Viet Cong. The Australians have resources sufficient for the task, but it's not an easy fight.

The village of Long Tan isn't far away, and the rubber plantation is also nearby. There is some sketchy intel that a large enemy formation is moving towards the task force base. Your platoon will have to investigate.

You will be fighting against Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army units. The tasks are challenging so this mission is best played by larger groups. It can be played with smaller groups or even single player with the assistance of recruited AI troops.


It's now been released on Steam Workshop.


Operation CULPAM

There were some initial issues with task force radio (as usual), but it was great to see that mods were not an issue and everyone had them ready to go.


Feedback following the mission was good.  Video of the operation will be posted shortly.
