Cold War Crisis

This is the remake version of the OFP campaign "1985 - Cold War Crisis".


Cold War Crisis was the first of the OFP series, developed by BI and published by Codemasters in 2001.

The story is set in 1985 on a group of three islands - Kolgujev, Malden and Everon. The Soviet Union is in turmoil after Mikhail Gorbachev is designated General Secretary of the Communist Party. Not everyone is willing to accept his leadership, including General Ivan Vasilii Guba, leader of a well-equipped army based on Kolgujev. Guba attacks nearby Everon, an independant republic, sparking an international flashpoint. The NATO base on Malden is alerted and the plot progresses from there.

The player begins in the role of Private David Armstrong, fresh from training on Malden and under the supervision of his commanding officer Sergeant Arnold Berghoff. As the missions progress, depending on the player's performance, Armstrong is promoted and can command a squad of his own.

There are other characters which the player controls at various points through the story:

Robert Hammer, a novice tank driver
Sam Nichols, a helicopter pilot
James Gastovski, a retired special forces operative who is persuaded to join the conflict and settle an old score...

I second what @Deckelsmouk sugest..

That mission would have been nice with Arma3 graphics.

Hi, I have a small suggestion that might be useful for vehicle accuracy. Have you seen the 3CB factions? They have the old jeeps and trucks from the timeframe and most of their content is RHS based too. Also it would be nice to see the DHI uniform pack added as now it has enough gear to make this very accurate and it would barely add any dependencies. I know you're working on the resistance campaign right now(which I'm loving right now) but it would be nice to see gear more accurate to the timeframe. Besides that I love everything about your campaings. It really feels like I'm playing back in OFP with the advantages of Arma 3. Love your content keep up the good work! :steamhappy:

nice remake of the original campaign. one thing i noticed tho, don't the hands of the spec ops look broken when holding the mp5s in 1st person? it not anything game breaking, its just really weird to look at

Has anyone ever considered remaking this mission?

It is probably one of THE best OFP missions ever made.

I might have few suggestions for both CWC campaign and future Resistance release and their patches.

1. Please can you give RHS vehicles like tanks their original stored equipment and crew weapons?

2. Can you add more variety of vehicles for example M2A2 IFV's for US Army in campaign missions for US, and for Soviets some BTR-80's, more variety of T-72B's (both Model 1984 and 1985, especially more 1985), some T-80U's? For both CWC and Resistance.

3. Maybe some more ambient activity, like soldiers doing stuff around, some more vehicles variety, random helicopter flying here and there. Simply to give more variety and life.

4. Maybe some more variety in weapons choice before missions?

Besides that, fantastic work, I am constantly replaying CWC campaign remake by you, and can't wait to play some Resistance! Keep the fantastic work!
