    (Still) got you a guy who can do both.
    After another long, unintended hiatus, I decided to pull up Recon the other day and see if I still got the moves.

    Not to brag, but it looks like I only got better. Two missions with ≥50% coverage. Looks like my tactical FPS sessions seem to have payed off. Thanks, Tom Clancy!

    This here was from a POW Rescue late last night. Only found two after two

    days of relentless walking and destroying trenches and camp sites (plus one culvert), but the results were splendid nevertheless. Dealt a good blow to their war effort.

    This here was from just now. I’m quite proud. Really more luck than anything.

    But Silent Ops, man. I’ve been trying to get it for a while now. This is a grand moment for me. Hold my hand.
    (I like how my killcard after this was “Clandestine Ops”. How appropriate.)

    So glad to be back.

    Haven’t played recon in over six months. Yesterday I had a pretty good mission, which I’m trying to find the AAR for. I’ll maybe post a story with it later, but I’m heading out to find and defend a firebase, wish me luck!

    My best Combat mission AAR so far.

    My combat AAr


    Cool result, but if you take a look at the previous posts, they usually say HOW was it achieved.
    Because, ya’ know; the whole AAR thing is not about the result but about conduct of a patrol.
    Just saying for ruture notice.
    Stay awesome and URB ON!


    Well, here we go again;
    Another detailed AAR, full of nervous sensor clicking, slow prisoner dragging and with a solid dose of URB at the end.
    Aslo, sorry for double post, but it’s entirely different matter, so I didn’t want to edit that in.

Moncayo tossed a grenade at the bomb, detonating it but got hit by a shrapnel and fell down incapacitated. X. Briggs spotted an enemy nearby and threw one of Namcayo’s grenades at him, killing him instantly. He then tried to stablilise the Sarge with his bandages, but failed three times in a row, so he tried using Sarge’s IV’s. Unfortunately, they were all depleted, despite not being used. With no other choice, he grabbed a Sarge and started moving towards the LZ, hoping to make it in time.
    C3/D3 – 17:00 – Enemy activity around the obesravtion post. Alvarez and Hawke once again managed to avoid detection.
    B3 – 18:35 – X. Briggs carries the bleeding out sargeant to the LZ. Calls for Evac. The anwser is incomprehensible. Spots one enemy on the way. Remains unspotted himself.

    C3 – 21:15 – X. Briggs arrives and boards the helicopter together with Stg. Namcayo. Helicopter takes fire from the tree line. Pilot panics and takes off, before S. Alvarez or U. Hawke can board it. Realising it, Briggs orders the pilot to go back, but is ignored. He also tries to call in another helicopter from the board of the Huey, but receives negative anwser.
    C3 – 21:20 – U Hawke executes a prisoner with his sidearm, grabs his M16 and stands back to back with Cpl. Alvarez. Alvarez kills one VC who rushed across the LZ. More voices are heard from the surrounding jungle. Huey takes more ground fire on it’s way out. X. Briggs demands the pilot to go back for the rest of the squad or call in another evacuation helicopter, but is told that it’s impossible due to increasing enemy presence in the AO.
    D1 – 21:25 – Helicopter leaves the AO.

    Upon returning to base, N.Namcayo received immediate medical attention as well as a purple heart.
    Corporal Alvarez and Private Hawkes are deemed MIA. No rescue mission has been authorized.
    Mission was considered a success, despite heavy losses.

    Later that day, Lieutenant Kacpo, commanding officer of Ranger team in this area, received a memo informing about a double agent in the ranks of ARVN, who relayed all the intel to the Soviet agents in the NVA. Due to this, all 39 of the intelligence data recovered by the Rangers had to be discarded.
    However, before that, Lt. briefed his squad, letting them know about recent actions of the enemy, and where to operate to minimize the enemy contact. After that, proceeded to destroy the rest of the intelligence data.

    Absolute excellent AAR.
    Your contributions are exceptional.
    I had a very good read for sure. Thanks for writing this.


    So well made it feels like an actual army AAR. Good stuff man.


    I may not have the most detailed description, but I think this is worthy of more than a discord upload.

    Dead Drop Done Right


    This is my first attempt of an AAR for Mud and Blood: Recon, though I’ve played it for quite some time. Although I don’t think it’ll be up to par for some of the AAR I’ve seen so far, I think it’s an interesting one none the less. I didn’t write down every detail that happened, but I’ve put in everything that I’ve acquired through notes.

    Operation Northern Force
    Objective: Hunter/Killer-kill 5 enemies
    Heat: 10%

    Enemy Force: ???
    QRF Forces: ???
    QRF Redcon: ???
    Devises: ???
    Radio Signal: ???
    Weather: ???

    Additional notes: Intel had to be scrapped prior to this Operation due to a breach in security. Squad is going in blind.

    Designation: Alpha one two
    Sgt. W. Sergey – Squad Leader (M16, Flack Jacket, Mk2 Grenade, Field Dressing, Smoke)
    Cpl. I. Sanchez – Radio Operator (M16, Smoke, Field Dressing, Ground Movement Sensor, PRC-77 Radio)
    Cpl. B. Peter – Medic (Stoner LMG, Field Dressing x2, Morphine, IV)
    Pvt. J. Adams – Demolitions (Model 77E, Flak Jacket, Mk2 Grenade, C4, Camera)


    C3 0800: Alpha one two dismounts at LZ. Some garbage is spotted directly North near the LZ. A full perimeter is set up South of C3 in some bushes.

    C3 0830: 1 hostile is spotted heading towards the LZ, directly West of Alpha one two. Sight is soon lost. Cpl. Sanchez calls in Bird Dog to scope the area.

    C3 0900: Bird Dog reports a patrol trail at A3, with 0 hostiles nearby. Alpha one two proceeds to head North to locate the trail.

    C3 1100: Alpha one two investigates the pile of garbage located North of C3, but finds no Intel. After confirming no Intel in the garbage, Alpha one two comes under fire by 2 hostile contacts South of their location. Contacts are neutralized and no injuries are sustained.

    B3 1730: While slowly advancing towards A3, Cpl. Peter spots a pressure mine that Sgt. Sergey just walked over. Alpha one two carefully moves West away from the mine while setting up another perimeter in some trees.

    B3 1815: Multiple voices are heard near Alpha one two’s position, presumable coming from the North. Positioned is held until Alpha one two has eyes on hostiles.

    B3 1900: 4 hostile sappers (Dac Cong) are spotted checking up on the previous located trap. Alpha one two engages and neutralizes all four contacts while taking no injuries. 1 frag expended. Mission objective is achieved. Alpha one two continues towards reported trail.

    A3 2200: While sweeping the Eastern part of A3, voices are heard near Alpha one two. A tight perimeter is set up in some dense forest.

    A3 2315: A patrol is spotted North East and North West of Alpha one two, danger close. Patrol is engaged, and 4 contacts are neutralized. 1 frag expended. Forces appear to be NVA troops. Voices can still heard nearby. Alpha one two holds position.

    A3 2400: 4 more NVA troops are spotted advancing on Alpha one two’s position from the South, South West, and East. Contacts are neutralized. No injuries sustained. Alpha one two decides to wait till daylight to continue the search for the trail.

    A3 0700: More voices can be heard near Alpha one two’s position. Alpha one two holds position.

    A3 0715: A large group of militia are spotted all around Alpha one two’s position, estimated to be section sized. Alpha one two is forced to engage. 4 contacts are neutralized. 2 frags expended.

    A3 0745: 3 other contacts are neutralized by Alpha one two. Pvt. Adams was killed by a shotgunner at close range. Alpha one two is abandoning the trail. Proceeding South towards LZ for Evac. Sgt. Sergey is carrying Pvt. Adams.

    B3 1030: Alpha one two comes under fire by Regional Garrison skirmishers South of their position while proceeding towards Evac. 5 contacts neutralized. No injures sustained.

    B3 1315: Alpha one two engages 2 Regional forces spotted inside the LZ. All contacts neutralized. No injuries sustained.

    C3 1400: Alpha one two reaches the LZ. A perimeter is set up North of the LZ inside some trees. Cpl. Sanchez calls for an immediate Evac, but is denied due to the area being too hot.

    C3 1445: Some voices can be heard around Alpha one two’s position coming from the North, North East, and West. Alpha one two holds position.

    C3 1500: Cpl. Sanchez contacts Command again to request for an immediate Evac, but fails to get a connection. Alpha one two engages Militia advancing on their position. Neutralized 1 contact. 2 other contacts retreated and their current positions are unknown. Radio battery is at 47%. Ammo running low.

    C3 1600: Cpl. Sanchez continues to call for Evac, but is either denied or fails to make contact. More voices can now be heard all around Alpha one two’s position, but are currently unseen.

    C3 1815: Cpl. Sanchez successfully calls for an Evac at the LZ. More hostiles are engaged. Position is being swarmed. 4 hostiles neutralized. Hostiles appear to be a mix of Militia and Regional forces. Shouting can be heard all around Alpha one two’s position. Estimated strength of hostile forces; Platoon. Ammo running dangerously low.

    C3 1900: Evac finally arrives with the door gunners immediately opening up. Alpha one two makes a break for the helicopter. Cpl. Sanchez and Cpl. Peter cover Sgt. Sergey as he carries Pvt. Adams to the helicopter. Engagement ranges are as close as 15 feet. All squad members are successfully loaded in and accounted for. 2 contacts are neutralized.

    C3 1915: Evac proceeds to head South West to leave the AO. Helicopter is under heavy small arms fire from multiple positions. The door gunners continue to open fire at anything they see, but fail to inflict any casualties.

    E1 1945: Evac successfully leaves the AO. Helicopter has taken moderate damage.

    Mission Results:
    Mission success
    26 hostiles observed, 35 neutralized
    No medals awarded
    1 KIA

    Squad Results:
    Sgt. W. Sergey – Squad Leader (15 inflicted casualties)
    Cpl. I. Sanchez – Radio Operator (8 inflicted casualties)
    Cpl. B. Peter – Medic (7 inflicted casualties)
    Pvt. J. Adams – Demolitions KIA (5 inflicted casualties)

    Closing Notes:
    After Operation Northern Force, 1st Lieutenant Jerico was reported by Lieutenant Colonel I. Wilson for causing Alpha one two to take unnecessary casualties. Lieutenant Jerico is now being reviewed by High Command and is likely to lose any chance he has acquired to be redeployed again in his next tour as of January 24th, 1969, though future operations may redeem him.


    Good stuff man.
    40+ contacts on 10% heat? That’s rough.
    I’ve never had such encounter.

    That’s a very well done AAR.
    Keep it up.


    The beauty of this is that it reads and sounds exactly like many real life AAR I’ve read from Rangers working on the trail when researching about Recon. That is probably the most rewarding feeling I get from this game and its community. Recon is not perfect but it nails the operational details and the mechanics of patrolling behind enemy lines in a very unique way. It creates emergent experiences that can be recounted as if you were there never two patrols are the same. Thank you for this AAR and thanks for being crazy enough to take the time to learn and playing Recon.

    Soldiers should be able to earn more than one of each medal. They can IRL, and in this case, each of my soldiers had all the medals already and I couldn’t award these to anyone. Wasn’t able to grab much intel either because it was too hot. :/

    Both of these were hunter/killer missions, and in each one I found a tree or two in a field without any others and positioned my guys there. Didn’t have to use air support or a grenade to draw them in, as these were insertions with high enough heat to get a few early kills and attract the QRF.
