View Full Version : TF Stalker 1st raid from COP Dagger - a BP Tale

05-10-2020, 04:04 AM
This is my first try at a spec ops mission. Frankly I am thoroughly embarassed to even try as I have no idea of the comms patterns, call signs, unit behaviors or frankly anything at all when it comes to the tier 1 community...but they look so bad ***.... so bear with me. Any feedback on how to do this better would be greatly appreciated and will be incorporated for future missions. Few crib notes, primary rationale for gear selection was to allow for easier identification of personnel..period. Stalker 1 is pattern 1 in Character, Stalker 2 is pattern 2 etc. Likewise selections of helmet and NVG follows the same concept. Weapons selection is based on 2 weapon limit of game so Stalker 1-4 carry suppressed M4A1 short barrels, 30 rounds clips, MAWL-DA and EXPS3 sight while Stalker 5 has a G28. Unfortunately photo mode removes NVG for some bizarre reason buried in the illogical code of BP so it is what it is. I should have adjusted time of day in photo mode towards the end of mission as doing this is a slow process, but oh well. Next time.

Mission Intel suggests there is data in the port facility office in neighboring Dipwadistan that would help identify terrorist shipping facilitators.
Objective: Secure port shipping building, acquire data storage facilites, computers files etc and return to base.
Insertion will be 1:30 hours
Time on target should be 30 minutes or less to avoid periodic check in. Critical to take out long range radio operator and base power to isolate target.
Additional target - Port commander is a known terrorist facilitator. Terminate with extreme prejudice.
Command will have a drone overhead prior to assault. Call sign Eagle Eye

Stalker 1: Okay team, plan is simple. 3,4 and 5 take position at south warehouse building avoiding opposition if possible, eliminate as necessary. 1 and 2 will head for a boat to be left by operative and insert on North side near the generator. We will set explosive charges and then move on the port shipping facility. 5 you'll scan for the port shipping officer and the RTO. Upon establishing ourselves in the facility when 5 confirms targets we will initiate take down. 5 eliminate priority targets, 2 will detonate the charges on generator. 3 and 4 to then move on shipping office eliminating opposition as they move. Once shipping office is secure, we call in mother hen, grab the golden egg and get the hell out of dodge. Questions?

Awesome dude. It's amazing how you make it feel and look like you have multiple operators and support staff (chopper pilot, eagle eye support, etc.). Well done. There must be some software or something you can use to turn your material into a comic book style... your content is perfect for that.

While someone like Bone Frog might have some great tips for how the comms roll, it seemed cool to me.

One thing I think would enhance the story is a pic at the beginning (maybe as part of the op briefing paragraph) with an arial shot off the target. It would provide some context for the rest of the op and provide more awareness of what you're going into.

LOL at Whathefukistan! Love it!... I need to switch my game audio to Russian next time and run with this... "Boys we're in Whathefukistan now!"

I've waited long enough and BP only seems to be getting worse with time. Welcome to COP Eyrie in Argentina. Home to TF Condor and launching pad for Spec Ops missions into Bolivia as part of Operation Kingslayer.
