Mission Briefing: Mostar
blackhawk on a routine mission was shot down by a small rebel faction of Croats
using a shoulder fired surface to air missle .
The bad news is that both pilots and the rest of the
crew are dead. The really bad news is that there is classified material
on the downed blackhawk that must be destroyed
before it falls in the wrong hands. If discovered, the information on that
chopper could escalate tensions in the region to levels surpassing those in
To insure its destruction, your
team's mission is to hold the crash site long enough to uplink GPS coordinates
for an air strike. Due to lasting tension in the region and the apparent
destruction of the homing beacon on the blackhawk, intel is sketchy as to
exactly where the chopper has actually gone down. We do have initial reports
from the other blackhawk pilots in the squadron who
were accompanying the downed chopper
that indicate four different possible locations. Once on the ground you should
be able to use the smoke
billowing from the downed chopper to locate it. Depending on the circumstances, you will be inserted
either by blackhawk or by taking zodiacs going down the Neretva river.
to recent intel, enemy positions have been constantly changing. Roving patrols
can come from almost anywhere, even the local Mosque .
From what we have gathered, they don't know at
this point that there is sensitive material on board the downed bird. Your
presence there might alert them to that fact however, so if you're detected you
might face heavy resistance. You must hold the crash site for 40 seconds to
uplink GPS coordinates to the fast movers. Once you've held it your exit vector
will arrive in about 4 minutes. Be forewarned, however, if the chopper is downed
in the river as one report indicates, extract will be on bridge as we most
likely can't get low enough for a river extract. It would be too risky for your
crew and the exit bird's. If this is the case, it
might be beneficial to have members of your squad secure and protect this bridge
while the others upload the GPS coordinates.
have at least 50% of your squad at the extract in order to leave. Those that
might be left behind know the risks and should be able to make it to a safe zone
directly north along the river in Jablanica. However due to recent media flak, the higher-ups don't want
more than 50% of the survivors left behind. The flight crew have strict
instructions to not leave unless you have at least half of your men with you. If
there are stragglers, go help them.
