05-Blinding the Bear

In 1 collection by killjoy
Czechoslovakian Spring
5 items
Ustecky Region
March 15th 1987

Fury Troop, 3rd Plt along with Calvary units from Blackhorse Troop, assault the 772nd Recon HQ in the town of Bochov, in an attempt to force the remaining Soviet forces in the region to retreat or surrender.

This is my fith mission in the collection Czechoslovakian Spring, it features a combined arms assault on a fortified town held by Soviet troops.

Feed back whether positive or negative is always helpful. I can't improve unless i know what i'm doing right or wrong with anything. And a rating and a favorite never hurt either ;)

Thanks to Blinkey, Cameron McDonald, and Corporal_Lib for play testing.

NOTE: Gear selection.

A3 version:

Addons required:

East vs West 0.9 []

My mission statement

Mission, addon, and script makers really don't get enough recognition for all their efforts. I've been playing the series since the OFP demo came out, and the custom content which was released almost from day one was amazing, and after making my first proper mission after all these years i finally appreciate the time, effort and utter frustration (especially getting scripts to work) that goes into making a mission let alone an addon or a script.

Although after the constant play testing, making sure everything works as it should and knowing every detail of your mission is enjoyable, at the end of your finished product there's no more real enjoyment or surprises to be had. The more people that play what I've made, the happier i'll be to know that what i can't enjoy anymore has been (hopefully) enjoyed by the many people that have put so much effort into making the community what it is, and has been for the past 15 odd years.

I tried to do as much research as possible before i start, example regarding this mission - looking for information on the 2nd Cavalry Regiment, the Soviet 22nd Guards, the regions and town names of Czechoslovakia, proper radio protocol - which in the end might not be 100% accurate, but i think it makes a more enjoyable and immersive experience.

So please play, rate, criticize and encourage because in the end i want people to enjoy what I've made, and not just get the numbers if you know what i mean.

or put the mission in "x:\Steam\BlackOps\steamapps\common\Arma 3\Missions\" and you can play it.
BTW - very nice mission. Well done as always. Thanks so much

@Lon'qu The mission may be outdated as it wasn't updated as often as the workshop version. Then again, the whole collection is outdated so it might work fine.

I'm havin' the same problem as Viking. Mission doesn't show up in the scenarios list :( Is it poss to manualy install it?

The series isn't complete anyway. Mostly because the main mod East Vs West is no longer supported or updated.
Viking Sep 20, 2016 @ 4:05am 
Oh well, guess i'll never get to finish it :/

@Viking Thanks mate, glad you enjoyed em so far. To be honest i've no idea why it might not work. Keep in mind these missions were released a long time ago, with outdated mods and I haven't really touched them to keep them updated.

I just finished the 4th mission, very well made i must add. You are a talented mission maker.

Hi Killjoy, this is some amazing collection, for a long time I was looking for some cold war missions, and finaly got so frustrated that I've started messing with editor myslef. I've sent you a PM if you dont mind, I'm working on similar campagin for some time now and I have a question or two. Good luck on your future missions!
