Sitrep: Puzeh-E Yshan, Baghlan Province, Afganistan, Mai 2010: A squad from Gebirgsjägerbataillon 231 “Reichenhall” is to move to a compound at the near town and to support the extraction of hostages in an ongoing rescue mission.
Our player character is Hauptfeldwebel Altman, a member of the Kommando Spezialkräfte and veteran of several tours of duty in Jugoslavia and Afganistan. On this mission he is attached to the patrol as a special forces combat corpsman.
For the first mission I choose Target no. 12 “Enemy Tanks”, a target situated far inside the Libyan desert near Murzuq. It is a dispersed vehicle target that needs 8 hits to destroy and gives one -1 victory points, if not completely taken out. The range calls for a -3 wight point and +3 stress value for each aircrew. First I spend 5 special option points for tanker priority. This will cancel the wight penalty and allow all the aircraft to carry full armament.
With little time to paint small aircraft I have obtained a copy of the DVG solo-game HORNET LEADER Carrier Air Operation. I like campaigns and allways are on the lookout for managable campaigning systems. This game looks promising.
