Event details

Map Rosche BLUFOR

The premise of this mission is that a platoon of infantry are needing to retreat from a superior enemy force attacking from the North.

An air element is going to take flight to cover their withdraw. But the catch is that the air units can only see their own markers while the ground units can't seen any markers at all. (If I find a good way to do this ... else no BFT for anyone!)

Air will need to find the infantry, follow them and support their push south. 

TLDR: BLUFOR infantry retreats south while air units provide recon and cover for them.

Info about the mission:

  • The goal is to retreat south(west) towards the airfield, the air units are starting from. The start locations are unknown / hidden.
  • You got 105 minutes after mission start until the last person has to reach the airfield.
  • It's evening and will become dark if the mission runs too long.
  • A free respawn wave will be given after making it halfway.
  • Further respawn have to be negotiated with crossroads.
  • You got 5 minutes after the TP pole is placed down until it is removed. Everybody not thought the pole has to wait until a respawn wave.
