Mission briefing:

This mission is inspired from the Soviet Afghan war, as suggested by Lambert, in which we will be playing as the Soviet army.

Our primary mission is to resupply our airfield to the south of the region.

Normally our helicopters would handle this, however, we’ve seen a sharp increase in anti air weaponry being used by the Mujahideen insurgents.

Therefore a ground convoy will be used instead.


There are two ways to get to the southern base; East and West roads. The West is heavily occupied by Mujahideen forces making that road extremely unsafe. The steep gradient of the northern side will however slow us down more, making the convoy an easy target.

We control the East side, but not uncontested.

A number of our convoys have been ambushed on the way and losses are not uncommon. As this resupply is crucial to maintaining a foothold to the south, an APC will be attached to the convoy.


Likely opposition will be rifled infantry with maybe some light skinned vehicle support such as technicals. As far as we know they do not have possession of medium or heavy tanks.

IEDs should also be expected, having been the most effective thing stopping our convoys thus far.


Artillery support will be available as HE and smoke mortars, as well as one limited battery of Bm21 trucks. Arty will be available within a certain range, and must be called through to HQ.

Long range radios will be standard issue in all vehicles, as well as a couple backpack radios. Personal radios however are limited at the moment  and will not be in use.


Our because of the shape of the land, our radios will only reach so far south, due to the loss of a couple of our radio relays.Somewhere around Mandingara you will be out of range of both the southern and northern bases.

Some known insurgent forces are dug in at an old US base called “Mike 2”, near Machifazar. You may attempt to set up a radio relay tower there to re-establish coms.


There is a known civilian presence in the area. Their disposition towards both parties is extreme distrust and anger. It would be in our best interest to avoid civilian casualties and damage to property as much as possible…but don’t risk your lives for them either.


The mission will be considered a success when you arrive at the airfield with at least all the cargo vehicles. Good luck
