Calendar Mission: Paradrop Panic


Mission Planner

Event details

So this will be something different and very chaotic.  You can and will be separated from your squad, so you should work closely with those around you.  You have been warned!




You are the Horizon Island Defence Force, but today you are on the offensive.  Your rather cocky general has sent you on a suicide mission, to paradrop directly on to the nearby island of Tembelan's main military airfield, with no asset support. The death toll will be many, but we have a large force to use so he believes victory is certain and does not care about the cost.

Enemy forces consist of standard 80s-90s armed forces wielding AKs etc.  They have armour up to and including MBTs, and air up to Fixed Wing.  They are also known to use mines to shore up defences around their bases, hence this air-based assault.

You will paradrop via TP pole at either marker of your choice.  They will be approx 800m in the air. Weather will be early morning with rain. 

It is recommended if you have a backpack that you keep it on when you exit the arsenal such that it is restored properly on respawn. A box of parachutes can be provided at the pole if requested.

Your objectives are as follows:

  • Find and disable anti-air positions
  • Find and disable artillery positions
  • Disable enemy assets
  • Clear the airfield of enemy presence

You have 1 hour from first drop to complete these.



This mission will be heavily restricted, but provide plenty of respawns.  Think of it as a silly challenge.

No actual C-130? You disappoint me.

Thought about it or a heli, but figured in the end that with how often people will die that the 10+ minute wait after respawn to get into the action wouldn't be worth it sorry.

Whatever it is I hope it is quiet and also stopped when requested.  I.e quickly as with no radios again you are relying on local to communicate.  Do take care of others playing please.

just to be clear do we have to put timers on everything or can we use touch off as well?

Pretty sure ACE disables touch off as an option, so you won't be able to set it down and detonate it that way.
