    This is a thread for only After Action Report. Not meant say you can not put up with some screen shot or video, it just focus on your mission. In the old forum, some folks can not or just don’t want to record their game play, so here is the good place to share your mission. Also, anyone can write some awesome story here too! >o<

    Here I start with some old AAR stuff, Link here.

    A quick, clean BDA mission.
    My team inserted into the AO and quickly moved off the LZ with no hostiles sighted. Checking signals strength, I received a ‘loud and clear’ response. Perfect.

    Putting some more distance between the team and the LZ, I called in a low-altitude pass. Negative response.
    I called in a sitrep, then put in another request for a pass. The request was accepted this time, and with the buzzing of Bird Dog fading into the distance, I was informed that we had an impact crater in sector 5-Charlie with 0 baddies hanging about. We moved out.

    Upon reaching the impact point, we beheld the bloody mess of a wiped out NVA squad. A list of passwords was found on one body. Score!

    Moving to a clearing, I called in an extraction at secondary LZ. Approved, with a wait time of 43 Mikes.
    We settled in.

    As the roar of the extraction huey grew, we heard scattered gunfire coming from the direction of the crater. The NVA must have found their buddies, and they weren’t happy.

    The huey sped past them, moving too fast for the NVA to do any serious damage with small-arms fire, and reached our smoke signal. As we clambered in, the pilot pulled up and soared out of the AO, the finish of a successful mission.

    ————————————————————————————————————
    A real easy mission, with zero combat and over in a couple minutes. I nice reprieve from some of the more stressful missions I’ve done (I’m looking at you, Dead Drop).

    EDIT: Got erased from the topic somehow after editing. Fixed it :/
    EDIT2: Edited again, got deleted again. Put it back.

    Just finished a grueling, 3 day long POW rescue mission, all for one POW :/

    Intel said there would be a det of militia in the AO, but what it didn’t say was that it would be chock-full of enemy assets and that the tree density was through the roof.
    It took me two days for bird dog to finally spit out where the POW cage was (3-Bravo), and then one more to actually find the thing (I ended up finding it with the good ol’ mouse sweep method), and in the meantime I shot plenty of VC and blew up 5 assets.

    Map:

    Results:

    Sorry it’s not more story-ish, I just want to go to sleep…
