I was the Opfor platoon leader for the playthrough of this mission and it went phenomenally well. Opfor only took a single casualty and it was due to one of the BMP gunners getting an itchy trigger finger and friendly firing Sir Mills. I did my best to keep things going well and I think I did a good job, but I also have to commend the squad leaders and vehicles commanders for their roles. They all followed orders well, but still took the initiative when they needed to. Good squad and vehicle leadership were essential to our success. My overall concept of keeping everyone close enough to support each other when they got into contact was executed quite well by the platoon and whenever the enemy showed itself we had multiple soldiers and vehicles engaging and destroying the contact within seconds. At the end of the mission we killed the last enemy in town as he was hiding in a barn and claimed the town of Staroye for Mother Russia.
We did lose the T-72 to an insanely lucky (or skillful) AT4 shot from 400m that managed to penetrate the front of the tank somehow and we also lost one of the BMPs to a TOW missile, but the crews of both AFVs managed to dismount safely. We did get lucky that the Bradley missed our BMPs early on in the mission and we were also lucky that it decided to rush right into the bulk of our forces and get blown up. Still, this playthrough of Badger Blues was some of the best Arma that I have played at UO in a long time.
I put together an Imgur album that I think gives a decent blow-by-blow of how the mission went for Opfor. Here is the link.
I'd love to hear some feedback from the other players in the mission as I was never really on the frontline and played the whole thing through my radio. I would also like any videos or screenshots of the mission to be shared too. So please, post below!
