   Last operations in R6 Vegas 1

   Basically just a wider "corridor" from usual linear shooters.

   MG position, gunners are not that hard to take out if you have weapon with optics.

   "You know, let's not wear helmets and even protection for eyes, but take those masks that will make breathing harder for no reasons. It will make us look more badass!"

 

s4J2ISW.jpg

   One of reasons to not jump into turrets in last mission

 

ypGdId3.jpg

   And this is second reason - big numbers of bad guys.

 

SxXIJcf.jpg

   Suppressive fire against me left those holes.

 

j48ixZb.jpg

 

ovlXrB8.jpg

   Rare situation when both team mates are down. Not a best point of breach was probably a reason.

 

r10n41K.jpg

   Not that easy to see small parts of enemies in between those pellets, boxes and shelves

 

i85dy6W.jpg

 

NPPN4sZ.jpg

   Secret facility inside of dam.

 

GyCZSb4.jpg

 

Wq8AQ1n.jpg

   Blind fire isn't that effective in this game as spread is really bad and becomes far worse each next shot, but sometimes it is not bad method. But when blind firing you hands are exposed and can be hit.

 

xxkwYqT.jpg

 

hPKkJOt.jpg

 

sMQ2adH.jpg

   AI can't see through those types of glass, apperently.

 

VJ40w2U.jpg

 

XzoBVte.jpg

   Ambush preped by mercs. Flanked through obvious flanking route.

 

ikRCHS2.jpg

   Umm.. why Elbrus launcher on MAZ chassis is US, again?

 

Dji2HOx.jpg

 

4nuUT7p.jpg

   Defending our "hacker" from waves of bad guys. This section was annoying to play and it was not obvious where you should be and what button to press to trigger scripted scene, as main bad guy is trying to escape (there are scripted events if you fail to do what level makers want you to do).

 

dEboKbZ.jpg

   They look like ninjas, but their AI is standart.

 

ZYg7547.jpg

   "Main" villian.

 

cT13jnb.jpg

   For "Spec Ops" those enemies are not so sharp.

   "I'm gona tell you my scripted dialogue at you!"

 

VdRTHzl.jpg

   No you don't!

 

Pw8u6VV.jpg

   Fuck!

 

8J3hlIc.jpg

   Can this uninteresting character shut up? I want to play the game.

 

ngybj7E.jpg

   Is there any skip button?

 

IuxxCCB.jpg

   Can you die faster, lady?

 

2hVItxn.jpg    Does this sequence even supposed to have end?

 

BkoIfpL.jpg

   One of teammates have this on him, kek.

 

mbB6ztm.jpg

 

cUkfRtz.jpg

   Another one? Also, those things for some reason don't have any clearance between road and hull bottom.

 

mIIEDZX.jpg

 

I0vGc6E.jpg

   Missile is starting to take off

 

dxO8zj8.jpg

   But we fixed explosive on it... Of course fuel didn't exploded at all, so we are fine.

 

n9Jnnq2.jpg

   Kek, that vehicle have all proportions changed to make it work for cover-based shooter.

 

jGArvsx.jpg

   But this is not the end. We have a traitor who took our helicopter

   Will do review of Vegas together with Vegas 2, as they are both very similar.

YBEJJSC.jpg

   In Vegas 2 you have some customization options

 

Spoiler

   Graphics are better (a bit) and image looks crisp

   Heavy armor on this enemy. You can wear same thing after reaching proper levels. Yes, there are levels in this game and unlocks.

   After unlocking several camos i decided to put all of them on character, kek

 

GHZlTRI.jpg

   Hideous!

 

ABWp8Po.jpg

   Levels have more details

 

DBjeIkb.jpg

 

gaGNkMl.jpg

   AI behiavors were not changed much, if at all.

 

p8imNaO.jpg

   All tha equipment is just visuals and don't affect gameplay enough to be noticeable

 

SNHAt0q.jpg

 

bPzCRor.jpg

 

DxUmFJC.jpg

 

JtiFKh1.jpg

   Game still allow you to choose between 2-3 points/angles to breach rooms.

 

i10dUog.jpg

   The only thing this camo does is making character model looks like pile of whatever tactical shit you put on him.

 

jCqnDlU.jpg

 

IsMAEkb.jpg

   Level makers continue to use "artstyle" shift in their maps. Makes those operation harder to remember which one was which, but during game those shifts makes interesting to just progress through levels and see where you get next.

 

OAFoggK.jpg

 

QZLfvcS.jpg

 

n8s0SZA.jpg

   I don't remember if this is start of new level or just continuation of previous one, haha.

 

7qMrosI.jpg

   Flashbang effect. If those bad guys used frags, it would have been way harder.

 

ysRhcNg.jpg

   Strange MG mounting system.

 

e72zYPE.jpg

 

OaD0DYE.jpg

   Pretty sure ballistic mask are just 100% cosmetics even for player. They also don't used to note any kind of more dangerous enemies that average or anybody important.

 

aEVqCQi.jpg

 

aL3g7bR.jpg

   "Officer" looking bad guys have no differences from other mooks.

 

dFrp6JR.jpg

   Friendly AI managed to get stuck. He got out of this place only after i crossed some script trigger way futher.

 

6V3TrM7.jpg

   What you will see most of times in Vegas 2.

 

vht0fF3.jpg

 

afrivCv.jpg

   This became another escort sequence, thank god only for ~150 meters of this level.

 

LYyc5tP.jpg

 

IRMhwc4.jpg

   CQB kills are also awarded with additonal exp when you will special bar for CQB combat.

 

wQidIHD.jpg

   Um... this is not a good time to stand in weird positions.

 

nYmgbvo.jpg

 

qG9nVHS.jpg

   Decided to stop tourchiring my eyes and put something plausible on my model.

 

bzSGfXy.jpg

   Game awards you for every fart in direction of enemies. Killed from long range? Get more exp. Killed from close range? Get more exp. Killed from behind or through cover? Exp.

   Attachments are not displayed on models until you pick them up.

 

uY3qnhu.jpg

   Ropes are still deathtraps for mercs.

 

F8BJ87y.jpg

 

5Xt7aTK.jpg

   Smoke at this range is not that useless to cover enemies. But you still can spray and get kills through cover for additional exp.

 

QbfVx6p.jpg

   Gasmask is given to you in this level, but you can't equip it in other missions if you don't unlock it. Also it replaces helmets, although they are purely cosmetic.

 

RQqTTM8.jpg

 

nmUZN7n.jpg

   Each level bad guys have different gear with different camo. Feels like a fashion show, lel.

   Interesting behavior of enemy AI. 1 cover and 2 enemies that want to use it results in special behavior with unique set of animation. 1st is acting as usual, second one is stepping out of cover and shoot few burst and gets back. Your teammates are doing this often, but enemies - not so much.

   Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and Vegas 2 review.

   I’m reviewing both of R6 Vegas tactical shooters at once, as they are very similar.

 Tom-Clancys-Rainbow-Six-Vegas-1-2-Game-For-Xbox-360_detail.jpg

   Vegas was released in 2006 on PC, PS, Xbox, powered by Unreal 3. It received high praises from game journalists and sold 1.7 million copies by April of 2007.

   Vegas 2 was published in spring of 2008 on same platforms and on same engine. And it (as first part) received very positive reception.

   R6 Vegas (1 and 2) are hybrid 1st/3rd person cover-based shooters with elements of tactics and squad command. Both games take place during same event – attack on Las Vegas by unknown group of mercenaries led by some generic bad guys/girls. You are tasked with kicking doors and shooting mercs in the face while yelling basic order at 2 pet team members. And.. that’s about it.

 

   Visuals

   First Vegas had very “blured” visuals, which was very much usual for console peasant shooters. Despite your screen being covered in Vaseline, after 1st training mission game start to show you flashy casinos and other places with expensive decoration like VIP restaurants and similar. Second game follows generally similar visual style. Both of them try pretty hard to keep player entertained by showing new and different places during missions with a lot of attention put into details and looks of each map. Each casino or hotel/penthouse/etc have unique style, and even some environmental story telling elements.

   Games technically were mediocre, especially Vegas 2 compared to Crysis that was released a year earlier. Crysis had destructible buildings and vegetation, a lot of interactivity of the environment, on top of that top notch graphics and big levels that allowed higher level of player freedom than most of shooters of that time. Vegas and Vegas 2 had cramped indoor levels that were nothing special (on a gameplay side) with almost no interactivity with anything on the level (except doors and windows).  

   Speaking about visuals, Vegas 2 introduced customization features (camo, gear) that you unlock by playing the game.

   Overall, games look rather mediocre with exception of art style of some of places that you visit during Singleplayer story and a lot of details that breathes a bit of life into levels.

 

 

   Gameplay

   Both Vegas and Vegas 2 have exactly same gameplay and gameplay mechanics (with exception of gear customization of Vegas 2). It is 1st person shooter with high damage enemy fire that forces you into cover. When in cover game switch to 3rd person camera, allowing you to observe bad guys around corners and shoot when you have a chance. Almost all firefights are CQB, guns are rather accurate and have ability to be modified with some simple mods like sights or suppressors. Enemies die quickly (thanks to high damage of your fire) and stick to cover (mostly). Player’s health is regenerating after sitting in cover for some time.

   Almost all singeplayer you will have 2 friendly AI soldiers under your command and you can give simple orders to them, exact selection of orders depend on their combat mode (stealth or “loud”). When you order them to get to a door, you get more choices to how to breach it (group of orders also depend on combat mode). You can breach door in 5 ways, (2 loud with explosive, 2 “sneaky” with smoke or flashbang and 1 “normal” – just open door and get it). On top of that sometimes you can order (and use yourself) ropes and breach windows, but that is rather rare.

   All action happens in linear levels with few small arena-like parts. Sometimes you can breech room from 2 ways, but those “flanking” entrances are not far from main entry point, so levels are rather cramped even when you technically have options.

   Almost all combat between R6 and mercs is attrition type, sometimes you have to defend something from wave(s) of attacking mercenaries.

   All this sounds basic and rather uninteresting and in concept it is. But what saves it is how exactly all this implemented, so called “main/short gameplay loop”. Shooting is rather enjoyable in this game and fights have a momentum behind them – loud firefights with “chunky”-sounding weapons against enemies in close proximity with high damage weapons that can finish you in several quick hits even when you are in cover gives gameplay an oomph that it needs to elevate above “generic cover based shooter”. Don’t expect something more conceptually interesting than breaching rooms and shooting everybody inside, though.

   Ow, room breaching… It feels more like it there because of Rainbow Six in the name, not because it is really useful. I could complete this game without problem with just 1 option to breach a room – open and fire. Don’t remember any situation when I really needed to throw a grenade inside or a flashbang instead of just opening door and pressing LMB.

   Cover use is also rather simple – press button, when near corner you can blindfire or if you press aim button your character leans out of it. Nothing special here either, other than a fact that character leans out of cover long enough to catch deadly amount of lead if enemy is aiming at corner and not too far, before you can fire. Everybody in Vegas 1 and 2 move rather slow and all movements feels heavier than in something like Ghost Recon Future Soldier, so player usually should be more deliberate with his actions.

   Few sections of Vegas 1 and 2 feel like somebody had a certain idea/direction for them, which made those moments to be more interesting. For example, in Vegas 1 in first mission there is a part of level where you take out enemy and grab his shotgun and in next 3-4 rooms all enemies have pump action shotgun exactly like one you picked up. This creates interesting gameplay of waiting for enemy to reload next round and aim before enemy can lean out of cover to fire next shot, and you are trying to do that against 2-3 bad guys in the same time. But those moments are rare.

   Guns in both games feel mostly the same, at least compared to weapons of the same class. Shotguns and sniper rifles feel different enough, but i used them just few times as SMGs and ARs are better for Vegas levels.

   So overall Vegas game are rather simple in concept, but execution of some of game mechanics makes it more enjoyable than what you can expect from yet another console cover based shooty-shooty game. But this is not an 9.5/10 gameplay that some of game journals gave to Vegas 1 and 2, for sure.

 

   Plot

   It exist for sure, as there are even characters who talk boring stuff to make you understand that they are bad.

   I can’t say who is done what exactly and why (maybe except last bad guy in Vegas 2), I don’t even remember names of generic McMilitary guy that you control.

   During whole game you are not sure if you are really defeating bad guys, there is no feel of progression through story for most of the game (except probably the last level), all levels in my head are mixed together into a flashy gambling machine-looking blob. If I look at screenshots of most of levels from Vegas 1 or 2 I wouldn’t be able to tell from which part of the game it is.

   Enemies, friendlies, AI

   Teammates are not terrible but can get stuck in some rare places, enemies usually do what they are supposed. Interesting note that your teammates have environment awareness system similar to SWAT 3’s – they understand “rooms” and chokepoints like doors and keep them in sight (mostly), but thanks to regenerating health and ability to revive downed colleagues, save checkpoints and much more scripted enemy location and spawns this system is have much less impact.

   Enemies on the other hand have problems with doors. Those problems are purely tactical, they are easy to funnel into chokepoints and gun down in groups. When under fire they switch to blind fire. They do what you expect from competent AI to do, but they lack something. I don’t really feel threatened by most of them (except shield guys), don’t feel need to move around as much as in FEAR. Mercs usually are sitting in cover and don’t move somewhere else, which makes firefight to be more predictable and a bit less interesting. At times bad guys can take good cover (that is more thanks to layout of place) so you can execute good flanking, but it is again rare and not really necessary. Mercs have generally 3 type of troops that you can notice - usual mooks, shield troopers and snipers. 2nd and 3rd are rare to encounter.

   Conclusion

   Solid shooter for its time, but rather basic and lacking in everything else other than shooting somebody in the face. I have no idea why this game got such high scores (5/5, 9.5/10 and similar), game have dumb basic plot, uninteresting characters, basic repetitive mission design and no depth to its small selection of mechanics.

   Rainbow Six Vegas and Vegas 2 are pop-corn action summer blockbusters about “special forces dudes” doing military-looking things, most of which you forget after some short amount of time and only few of them will remain for a bit longer. It have fun short gameplay loop, so recommend it to play in short playsessions.

   First mission in USSR campaign. It is kind of tutorial/sandbox for player to play around with game mechanics (infantry, armored car, tank, AT cannons and similar). I will show some of failed attempts as well, to show how easy and quickly you can fail in Behind Enemy Lines. Also, there are few textures on the ground that are not properly rendered (old game + notebook videocard made many years after game received it last update).

   Our mission - capture village defended by Nazis troops. Entrance to it is well protected with 3 AT guns and light tank. Next to it - a hill with 2 more AT guns and minefield.

   Troops that were given to take this village. T-34, Armored car and 2 soldiers (one with PPSh and second one with AT rifle).

   Each soldier have inventory and game tracks everything in it down to amount and type of ammunition.

   AT grenades against any thin-skinned vehicle is 1 shot kill. AT grenades are usually heavy and you can throw them for 15-19 meters at most, IIRC.

   In direct control mode i killed this enemy with burst from PPSh. German soldier didn't saw my trooper because of high grass where he is located.

   And looks like some of bullets flyed to close to other group of Nazis, or they heard explosion and shot, so they are now rolling with a tank support. Time to run.

   Second one noticed this and now moving to search for my riflemen.

   Next mission is where actual USSR campaign starts. From this point all troops and their equipment will be carried to next mission, so if i loose anybody, it will be for rest of campaign. At least saving is allowed. :D @N-L-M if you want to play this game, from this point it is better to avoid my playthrough, as it will be a bit "spoilery".

 

onMEu9Q.jpg

   Tank convoy was bombed by Germans and only 2 tankers survived with just pistols in their hands. Our task was to punch through Germans and capture village with a train station that was used as logistical hub by invaders. Now this task needs to be done with just few badly equipped survivors - Taras Kurennoy (selected) and Ivan Prokhorov, both armed with TT pistols.

   After halftrack was destroyed, both of my survivors were placed in thick bushes nearby to ambush Germans.

   Crossfire and frequen movement inside of foliage did help us a lot. Doing several shots and relocating allowed to take out about 6 or 7 enemy soldiers.

 

LQs1Hj4.jpg

   Ivan had just few rounds left before we run out of Nazis, lol. Some of Soviet troops had steel breastplates that i took to increase chances to survive this fight.

 

zkz1F1C.jpg

   I decided to take some time and thoroughly look into what enemies and dead comrades had. Now this strange mix of Soviet and German equipment should be good enough to try to push to survivors of sabotage team. Ivan have just few spare rounds for PPSh, thats why i also took bolt action rifle with again just 10 additional rounds and even save pistol. Taras have much more, but he will be slower because of the weight. Now we can move.

   My tankers aren't very good with  guns so after we opened fire that enemy infantry men managed to jump into cover and een shot a helmet from Taras.

   Now this guy is trying to find a better cover to have clear line of fire on us (visible on the right).

 

DHHSQ41.jpg

   Few shots with a rifle managed to stop this German soldier.

 

zf4M33U.jpg

   Next target - a light tank. Problem is both of my tankers don't have AT grenades and i used molotov already agaisnt half-track. 

 

bSnrDPg.jpg

   I decided to immobilize this AFV with frag grenades and finish with AT rifle. First grenade didn't do much, but second one took out tracks on one side.

   2 shots from AT rifle managed to penetrate that tin can.

   A crew member on fire appeared in front of us, was quickly finished with burst from PPSh. LT now is on fire.

   Sadly we will not be able to use it or take its MG for infantry use.

 

ICMHoP0.jpg

   Now we are pushing forward.

 

bKBQb50.jpg

   A motorbike had arrived next to us. We took it out, but i decided to reload and try to save that bike, because it had an MG that i can detach from it and use.

 

FVPGsaj.jpg

   Enemies inside of those ruins are getting reinforcements. We should speed up and in the same time now we will have a problem as pushing right through center will be hard task.

 

ejR6eP9.jpg

   After reloading we managed to take out LT without destroying it so coaxial MG was taken from it and put into use against "bikers".

 

BnyIUEH.jpg

   At this point i only need ammunition from that bike.

 

eKPgGoa.jpg

   We took it out during firefight with just arrived German soldier.

   Next phase - trying to get to trapped comrades by circling around, outside of ruins.

   Another bike went for the remains of bombed convoy, i ordered Ivan to grab a MG from BT and finish those guys, as they can interfere and hit us in the back.

   Taras meanwhile is trying to get to saboteur team survivors.

 

A7BnqdX.jpg

   Just 1 comrade left and he is fucked if we don't do something very soon. I guess Germans whant him alive. I didn't managed to find any entrance from behind and on top of that Taras and Ivan had no AT grenades or any explosive powerful enough to make one. I need to make sure that the German troops will switch their attention to my ex-tankers.

 

GlQOOgj.jpg

   So i decided to go into town with hipfiring DT MG at Nazis from behind. Not all of those dead bodies are from us, there are plenty of Soviet soldiers bodies around those ruins. Taras is in the bushes near entrance and Ivan is firing from LT location, putting Nazis into crossfire. But entering this place for Ivan will be deadly endevour - a group of enemy infantry is located on the right side of it, in cover.

 

RwY0NGm.jpg

   Reinforcement that tried to rush inside was ambushed by Taras, now we need to make a move or German reinforcement will arrive and force us to rush again. Taras will run to Ivan, but in such way that tank will pay attention and for at least some time drop suppressing last survivor.

 

xU2XXnz.jpg

   I didn't had any more ammo for AT (nor it will be able to reliably take out tank without risking tank firing back). I decided to use grenades to de-track it and use a moment to just sprint away.

 

y1G7cl2.jpg

   Well placed frag (thanks to direct control) killed whole group of shooters on our right flank, now we can try to ditract a tank and join with last survivor. 

 

Odq5wUv.jpg

   Killed last German soldier by cheeki frag. Also wanted to distract a tank.

 

Xsu73Dm.jpg

   While i was looting corpses for more frags, one of them managed to de-track Panzer. Now it is time to get in there, we are loosing time. Taras will sprint inside, using slow-ish turret rotation of a tank to avoid direct fire and ruins for some cover (although not reliable).

 

ZHQUveJ.jpg

   Ivan found himself right in the middle of big group of German reinforcement. We need to speed up and get out from this place.

 

Spoiler

 

oeuggyT.jpg

   HE shell from a tank missed us and by miracle hit a wall behind, making a breach. While loader was shoveling a new shot into gun breach both Taras and our new team member make a run for a hole in the wall to foilage outside of ruins complex. 

 

UZvVxAQ.jpg

   Ivan just few minutes after killing big group of Nazis by long burst from MG now is hiding in the bushes while i'm trying to figure out how to help to Taras and our new friend to get to extraction (which is not far from Ivan, on the other side of river). On the map it is visible that Taras path to extraction is obstructed by AFV and running our whole complex from other side is not an option, thanks to pictured group of enemy troops.

 

157kQa3.jpg

   Here is that extraction.

 

ovLNa2I.jpg

   And how i can deal with that group of troops? I waited for a bit until main group of German infantry moved inside of ruins and if you look at half-track you can see that it doesn't have a crew inside...

 

xgV88PY.jpg

   So Ivan just jumped in and drive away from main group of troops, to make a space...

 

rqUtp7P.jpg

   ... for MG fire that will keep Nazi invaders away from my new armored vic by killing them before they get into grenade range. If they do, Ivan is as good as dead in this open top death trap.

   Quick reaction and high RoF of MG managed to clear area right next to vehicle, but troops from ruins are ruishing back. I have just 146 round left for MG and i need to punch through enemy AFV to my comrades, so enemies should be taken out with miniman use of MG rounds.

 

wlDSFsd.jpg

   Some of survivors of Ivan's massacre are trying to run away.

 

of17sL0.jpg

 

bAOTYnw.jpg

   This will be awkward fight - both my and enemy vehicles are bullet resistant, so MG fire is useless. Will try to take out MG gunner first and bait driver to get into MG gunner position after that.

 

eLkAvH5.jpg

   Gunner is out.

 

aWdyJFx.jpg

   He decided to drive somewhere, so i had to ram him and stop vehicle to make driver to jump into gunner position, where he found his death.

 

qFxndG0.jpg

   That was close - Ivan's helmet was on the ground after that firefight.

 

QtgKpRS.jpg

   Now we have 2 AFVs, haha. Although there is still a tank inside of those ruins. Sadly, i was too slow and instead of 2 SF team members that i could potentially save i managed to get to them only with 1 left alive.

 

lehekuw.jpg

   Making sure we will not have Nazis on our tail.

4OIObeA.jpg

   Both vehicles drowned, we can now get out of this place, but things are just getting started as survivor of saboteur team tells us his mission that must be completed and it appears that only this group of 3 soldiers are left to do it...

   3rd mission for USSR (2nd if we don't count "tutorial"). Ilya (survivor of sabotage team) told about mission that they were on before getting caught by Nazi. Germans captured fully-loaded Katyusha MRLS and they are planning to move it to Germany. A small group of soldiers decided to try to take Katyusha, as it was not that far and probably will be useful to complete tanker's task.

SuOu5VZ.jpg

   Sadly we were just a bit late as train with MRLS just left station. Now we need to find a way to catch up.

 

Spoiler

0w8RqHx.jpg

 

BHNIUpo.jpg

   Only 3 soldiers, but overal they are equipped with all basic gear we will need + steel breastplates and helmets for additional protection (with exception of Ilya, his helmet is somewhere in previous mission, laying on the ground)

 

OkEkZKL.jpg

   Eastern side of this area is full of German troops and AFVs.

 

QvuLLfz.jpg

   Roadblocks with MG nest on N-E side.

 

IydCxTo.jpg

   Northen side of train station also have few AFVs parked.

 

j7DKmbr.jpg

   Light tank will be a problem for us, we don't have anything long range that can penetrate armor of that LT, only AT grenades with 15-18 meters throw distance.

 

bkwuwEA.jpg

   N-W part of trainstation have that MG emplacement.

 

WJss7UT.jpg

   Entrance to train station and warehouses is on Western side and lightly defended.

 

qPmsZoV.jpg

   Almost forgot - saboteurs had their contact working on train station, he lives in this house on Eastern side of village.

 

   Action starts:

HaxNXFL.jpg

   I decided to infiltrate this base through train entrance on N-W part of this map. This guard will take a throwing knife in his back few moments later.

 

Spoiler

OVnM7yU.jpg

 

m9vtzNv.jpg

   Fuel truck appeared, i'm waiting when it will pass, but some of German troops were already alerted.

 

c6XLpJ8.jpg

   Waited until this suspicuis Nazi walks away from base entrance and road.

 

wKguXK6.jpg

   ... i think Taras have enough gear.

 

kK6UveR.jpg

   Gates are opening for this car, so i will take it and use to block gates and leave them open (just in case).

 

00M8u4x.jpg

   Driver is finished, rest of team moved closer to entrance.

 

qU1MFYx.jpg

   Parked here so gates will remain open. You can see that truck cabin have damage from MG burst that took out one of 2 soldiers inside.

 

ectkPb8.jpg

   Preparing to breach those gates.

 

9L7JXnj.jpg

   Well, i overcooked this grenade, wanted to take out both guard with airbursting frag grenade.

 

qYl6r2H.jpg

   I took out visible guard with direct control mode and moved Taras to position closer, to find LOS on German soldier behind gates. He already sended one hand grenade and now throws a second one.

 

vHttO7T.jpg

   Taras moved from that tree just in it, heh. My second frag will take out that Nazi.

 

IqV8fCW.jpg

   We are moving inside of train station. From this point we can move in 2 directions easily - North and Southern part of train station and warehouses.

 

6PMIjht.jpg

   Ivan and Ilya are moved to Southern part to clear areas near train, we might need it to chase Katyusha. This is where enemies are getting seriously angry.

 

8wg8Q5l.jpg

   Enemies are moving towards us and i'm currently thinking of how to take them out better. This small sandlot in front of us will be good place to catch Germans, as they don't know where exactly we are. Also, you can see breastplates on soldiers in this pic. Both have MGs, BTW.

 

uxYXFCB.jpg

   Now very loud part of operation starts. Catching first Nazis with crossfire ambush.

 

Spoiler

8ldzES5.jpg

 

gG2FvSp.jpg

   Second one killed by Ilya point blank.

 

7eGqEvn.jpg

   Second group is more serious and now they know where we are. Ivan got his helmet shot out and a German trooper with MG is standing in the middle of open area and waiting for Ivan to get flushed out of cover. Breastplates decrease damage of pistol caliber weapons, but MG is deadly.

 

wVOrSEx.jpg

   Saboteur is distracting that hip-firing Nazi Rambo while Ivan is trying to get away.

 

6cFQAs3.jpg

   Ilya is pretty good with MGs (i think those yellow dots near weapon means how skilled soldier with that gun and Ilya have 2 instead of Ivan's 1, Ilya's fire is noticeably more accurate from MG) and he managed to take out that German Rambo. But few of Nazis left from that group of troops.

 

lKuudIF.jpg

 

bHFuoNJ.jpg

   One of that tried to flank Ivan from right.

 

XsILJNI.jpg

   Second rushed to ruins right next to Ivan and now i don't want to risk him in CQB when enemy is already aiming at him. Our SF soldier will get him instead.

 

J2t94Uh.jpg

   Done. Few enemies left in warehouses futher away, we will deal with them after refreshing our supplies of ammo, grenades and meds.

 

Bb9qCa6.jpg

   Apparentlyour shenenigans with 2 MG ambushes made Germans very angry and tank was called to deal with my troops near entrance to train station.

 

Spoiler

hLKhOsZ.jpg

   Shoveling ammunition in pockets as fast as we can and running away.

 

WqICmlI.jpg

   Heh, that was useful to have gates always open, managed to get away from compromised positions right into vegetation to hide and wait.

 

3LMcZD9.jpg

   That tank crew had enough of me using those ruins as good cover and just smashed through them.

 

FZ8Uajd.jpg

   On Northen flank i decided to move Taras a bit futher and prepare him to catch any reinforcements with grenades, if it comes to them.

 

9Q1zAWO.jpg

   Meantime i'm moving Ivan between bushes and trees just enough to trigger this tank to investigate place. I want him to drive away from base, i don't have good AT weapons to deal with it now.

 

upXvQwS.jpg

 

87027H8.jpg

 

9Rkz7RJ.jpg

   Thanks to vision based on LOS he can't see Ivan behind trees and bushes between us + prone soldiers are harder to see.

 

fjZDtY6.jpg

   Tank drove though that warehouse when searched for us. I spotted 2 boxes near fuel tanks and moved Ivan to them and that German guy decided to interupt me. I hope LT will not drive back before i can get what was inside of those boxes (after checking them they had mines, AT grenades and some other small stuff).

 

gVJ1WWc.jpg

   After Taras took 2 AT grenades from boxes i moved him back. Now he is approching light tank from his blindspot. Bushes next to a door are probable the only place i can get to without getting killed with MG and close enough to throw a grenade.

 

xSPOMS8.jpg

 

AiazmFm.jpg

 

mGEsxW2.jpg

   And back to Taras. S-W corner of base is clear and now we can start to clear N-W corner.

 

55Q9Avm.jpg

   That was very risky but incredible grenade. Took out soldier on the right with PPSh.

 

dmpYgEr.jpg

   In few moments this place will be crawling with Nazis.

 

nyqpLgC.jpg

   Which is good for frags, haha.

 

Dgxx3hF.jpg

 

0Tolecw.jpg

   Team re-joined for equipment managment.

 

9WhRuxs.jpg

   Grenades probably look very OP on my pics, but this is because i don't show how much of them i wasted to get one inside with proper timing on fuze to catch enemy.

 

fJ2AFxF.jpg

 

hexQyiN.jpg

   Still, landing a good one is very satisfying.

 

8LMxFlN.jpg

   Now, Northen part of train station. This one have a small catch - i need to take out armored car crew while they are outside of their vehicle so i can capture it and use instead of risking damaging it.

 

Spoiler

 

FkQRPXl.jpg

   Frag is inside of ruins and just a moment before it explodes i took out a German outside in case he survives and start to cause problems.

 

5lSVWFX.jpg

   Grenade took out rest of patrol, haha.

 

EHr6C23.jpg

   Main train station building, full of nazi invaders.

 

05jkKWi.jpg

   Those small grenades takes up less space than German one.

 

5pgeJs4.jpg

   Crew is still not alerted enough to jump into their armored vic.

 

ORIVN0t.jpg

   Well, i fucked up and now Taras is in trouble.

 

4Ip5XvZ.jpg

   Ow wait, no longer in trouble. Now Germans have problems, but not for long - we have not exactly a lot of fuel left. Crew of that vehicle was taken out by airbursting hand grenade above gunner's position. Just a fraction of second on a fuze would turned this vehicle into a pillbox, as frags can take out wheels if they explode close enough.

 

TsavZFr.jpg

   Using armored car with exosed gunner against this house full of Germans would have been a bad idea, so sneaky frags is my choice.

 

G3TtGBr.jpg

 

LepQt6z.jpg

   Breaking windows to make a way for room-clearing present.

 

IjKmzxi.jpg

 

TNgx3qb.jpg

   Back to car, now i need to figure out how to use it with maximum effect before it runs out of fuel.

 

 

74oZeZt.jpg

   Solution was simple - drive it like a maniac right into enemies. It is not as dumb as it sounds, taking out MG gunner first leaves that half-track alone for long enough for us to take out gunner and driver or to destroy it.

 

Spoiler

n5vugjf.jpg

   I tried to stay outside of MG arc and managed to kill gunner and now driver jumped into gunner's place to be machinegunned as well by our vehicle.

 

azvbmHo.jpg

   Dealing with patrol that rushed to help troops.

 

po0WqLc.jpg

   Few moments later -we are in half-track full of fuel and with enough MG ammo to clear rest of village.

 

qeE9kft.jpg

   Now we have some breathing time. I'm preparing this vehicle for futher action, at this point it will clearing last troops before meeting with our contact and jumping onto train to chase Katusha.

 

eR8pX9i.jpg

   So there were a lot of AT and anti-infantry mines in warehouses...

 

27pa9Lu.jpg

 

ysHOD1g.jpg

   Just in case.

 

pLj31Ta.jpg

   Clearing village from patrols

   Now finishing move - take out this vehicle and mow down remaining troops with our mobile open top pillbox.

 

Ib95JfE.jpg

 

u0AJBzV.jpg

 

YzgykTx.jpg

   Just in case smashed this bike, as sometimes those bastards use it to call for help.

 

sCu5JYe.jpg

   Leaving some mines here as well.

 

NokKHog.jpg

   Now we can meet with our contact. We will have few minutes to load up into train and sneak out.

 

cG3VKYn.jpg

   God damnit, i put mines on several roads but reinforcements came from only road that i didn't covered with mines.

 

mM2ozRW.jpg

   Rushing to a train to get inside and hide. Our contact was authorized by Germans to drive their trains, so we will be safe inside.

 

j547jB5.jpg

   Enemies probably heard our vehicle but can't find it, heh.

 

DoNz5Js.jpg

   Done! Next we will try to get our hands on Katyusha MRLS.

   4th mission. We reached a train depo where a train with Katusha stopped for a night. This is our chance to sneak and grab it.

3g8gUoo.jpg

   As soon as we entered this compound we were spotted by MG nest. Well, so much for steathy intrusion.

 

Spoiler

LYPHnCC.jpg

   We jumped into bushes behind big pile of logs but patroling enemy that was alarmed by shots rushed into our direction, we took him out.

 

6LEk4Wv.jpg

   Ivan is going to sneak to MG nest and clear it with a frag.

 

ufFM4lV.jpg

   For a moment things are silent, so i have time to look around.

 

h4BdWKn.jpg

   Main entrance is well defended.

 

BofWVZk.jpg

   More MG nests near main entrance

 

vxcH6VB.jpg

   After getting idea of what is near us, started to clear this depo.

 

DlAg02R.jpg

   Ivan clearing houses as well. Direct control helps a lot in those situations.

 

m9ye49E.jpg

   Katusha is all the way in the back and it is not attached to any locomotive.

 

OMou5Ln.jpg

   Some of patroling Nazis are trying to find us, only to find burst from PPSh.

 

f3bZU03.jpg

   Things got much worse - reinforcement arrived, and a serious one.

 

s208Z2S.jpg

 

RykpZFG.jpg

   One of vehicles driver was a moron, driving into this house. Less cover for us to use. A lot of German infantry is lurking aorund now, searching for intruders.

 

suBrZrs.jpg

   Now i'm trying to chew through that group of Nazis, using their own MG nest.

 

6WXbgKT.jpg

 

tLV6kJi.jpg

   Didn't reloaded in time and Germans managed to rush to MG nest and threw frag inside + finished with fire over sandbags after closing in. I need to do this attack a bit differently.

 

KrlrlJZ.jpg

   Preparing for my second attempt to gun down that infantry reinforcement that came inside of half-track.

 

Spoiler

f7qjDD6.jpg

   Now all 3 soldiers are positioned in line to fight with Nazi troops. Jumped to MG and announced our position. Risky move, AFVs can try to drive here. I hope those warehouses in front of us will give us some protection and force vehicle to drive around.

 

X961Sme.jpg

   This time gunfight looks much better for me, my soldiers are covering each other reload pretty well and all of them have LMGs for maximum damage output.

 

DJ2CSbC.jpg

 

Jggvocr.jpg

   In direct mode i took out a bike near that 8x8 AFV and it was triggered by my impudence.

 

1ypEvrp.jpg

   AFV didn't pushed forward. Things are semi-safe here, heh.

   And MG tower is also now clear, had to use plenty of rounds from SMG to get him.

   Now we are going to wreck this place!

 

PzGTG7b.jpg

 

zYQ2zG5.jpg

   Entrance on the east is almost clear. Only scattered infantry remains inside of this base.

 

zAqCaN4.jpg

   Driving like a madman in open top vehicle can be dangerous, crew inside still can be damaged by pieces of buildings and structures that you are driving through.

 

0i4g7Px.jpg

 

AEWc0Xs.jpg

   Now almost everythig is clear except few soldiers next to a train depo.

 

GxRjVpA.jpg

   Now it is time to work as a train driver!

 

uAGrJXg.jpg

   Not going to show this train/railroad puzzle, but i can say that you will need to work with some switch to get on a right track.

   And we are out of this depo, with MRLS!

   5th and last mission in Soviet campaign. We reached a train station that is used by Germans as one of main logistics bases, a group of tanks is currently being unloaded. Here we can get 2 mission completed - demolish arrived armor that tankes were tasked with and then destroy Katusha to avoid Germans using it, which was a mission for recon unit.

8BWlgSa.jpg

   Well, as before railroad texutres are glitching. Here is our train, problem is that Katusha is facing the wrong way.

 

Spoiler

4Q5FAwW.jpg

   Nearby aux. train station and warehouses area could be used to park our train and face MRLS in direction of main base.

   MG guard post on crossroads of railways, this thing is blocking our way to the north.

 

   Action phase.

fHI3sfm.jpg

   Plan was simple - make some space around train to avoid Germans running around it and then clear auxilary logistics base, move train there and launch all MRLS rockets at main facility, clear survivors with bullets and grenades. Here i'm taking out some patrols near our train. Taras is equipped as a "saboteur", so he will be our sneaky-sneaky comrade.

 

Spoiler

fq6XrGs.jpg

   Ivan and Ilya are overwathing areas near train with their MGs. We can send Taras to make a path inside of warehouses compound.

 

oKkvCei.jpg

   Smoking is bad for your health!

 

LjyWIfb.jpg

   After getting to fences i started to throw frags over it and fire from SMG to draw attention of gates guards and try to suck them out of their base into cover-less area.

 

dAL77NY.jpg

   Several guards were killed in such way, it is not exactly easy if you don't move your soldier fast enough to ambush position.

 

apmWE85.jpg

   After gates became unguarded i started to slowly deal with several soldiers that were overwathing entrance from inside of base. Those nazis are an obsticle. I was totally expecting enemies at some point just to mass rush Taras position, thats why both MG gunners are now covering him from the rear.

 

RRWCcW8.jpg

   Trying to crawl inside. Risky, not much good cover and Taras is in grenade range of those base guards.

 

VlAitnt.jpg

   Some of them are trying to get a LOS on us, we need to prevent that.

 

OVOP6fC.jpg

   A big of explosion should help us with creating havoc. Few moments later i spotted something on a minimap.

 

AnfKYLU.jpg

   A German train stopped right next to ours!

 

X2xoeAx.jpg

   A group of soldiers got out of it. Now we will need to fight our way through to our own train!

 

NwSOSlH.jpg

   Meanwhile both MG gunners rushed inside to probably the only place with some level of cover from MG guard towers, fighting with soldiers near crates with ammunition.

 

Ey7MM2W.jpg

   Several Nazi troopers rushed to base, but Taras was overwatching entrance and got several of tem before they saw him. I looked again at the map and...

 

P9pMbVV.jpg

   what the fuck? I was just GTA'ed - those assholes stole my train with MRLS and brought it to their main base!

 

   Where are my save files? Oh, let's try this one, will ambush that train before GTA 5 will happen.

bXwEOz6.jpg

   A car with 3 MG on it is being pushed by locomotive in front of it, i'm using AT grenade to demolish it.

 

Spoiler

BedF7vk.jpg

 

rxNZVPr.jpg

   2 MG with 100 round belts should be capable dealing with enemies on that side, i hope Germans on the other side of train will not be quick enough to exploit reload time of our MGs.

 

wIpgUM2.jpg

   While Ivan is firing MG i also thrown frags over train cars. This ambush went very well.

 

uLkta5f.jpg

   I spotted that the end of last train car is relatively close to MG nest and tried to use it to throw a frag grenade to enemies. I can't get close enough to take out all of them, range was just few meters short. Damn, now i need to find a way to get a frag behind sandbags.

 

bzumM7O.jpg

   Well timed dislocation from that corner, haha.

 

yiuC78O.jpg

   As attention of enemies is drawn to train, i think one of soldiers now can sneak to them from other side.

 

WO67dLx.jpg

   Done! Now back to secondary logistics station.

 

hzUSEhw.jpg

   Whole group of saboteurs is rushing in, clearing buildings with grenades.

 

G7zEl8G.jpg

   My MGs managed to outshoot this German trooper, almost whole southern part of base is clear.

 

VUaXBd3.jpg

   Last enemy - that guy found pretty good spot to overwath both open area next to entrance and rear of his building. Thanks to armor vest and MG Ivan took him out without too much problem, i wasted probably 3-4 frags to get this nazi invader.

 

JIbjaox.jpg

   While we have a moment to breathe i'm trying to access what we have in ammunition crates around us. Some usefull stuff here.

 

4xCm1Mi.jpg

   Our small moment is over - German troops are trying to assault my small group partizans.

 

ki6CyR0.jpg

   Now we need to find a way to take out enemy MG tower on N-W side of this facility, but a path to it inside of base os overwatched by troops that took positions inside of building near the train and some German troopers are spread inside of warehouses and around them. I need to find a path outside of base, but Northen path is closed (overwatched by 2 MGs).

 

Xan9Ufv.jpg

   Well, answer was simple - grab a track, near wich a German driver got his head smacked by PPSh buttstock, drive it next to a fence.

 

qNwtIaD.jpg

   And blow it up!

 

Hk65jRO.jpg

   Now we have a way outside. BTW, note that you can tell your soldier to take a firing position behind  engine block, that landed few moments ago.

 

3abRslV.jpg

   Ivan is sneaking next to guards house.

 

jfai6d7.jpg

   Ilya used a demolution charge to make sure that this train is not going to drive back and bring more troops inside of that railway carriage.

 

LzFjNeE.jpg

   Ivan took out enemy MG gunner by burst into his back.

 

vFLpsaQ.jpg

   Now - guard's building.

 

qDOOAZo.jpg

   Hand grenades made those guys mad and now they are rushing our positions. Taras and Ilya are ready to meet them.

 

WHpwTzE.jpg

   And that is why you don't bunch up in front of soldiers with MG and SMG.

 

p5b1MsP.jpg

   Used that moment to push Ivan futher and take out MG nest at the entrance. Now only few Germans left inside of that base.

 

fMsiSqQ.jpg

   And now Ivan is going to lock this entrance for enemies. At least for some short amount of time, as there are just 150 rounds for that thing in addition to 100 round belt that is currently this guy is loading.

 

s6wDMYc.jpg

   Sneaky demo charge room clearing action.

   Germans didn't liked that somebody took their warehouses and decided to attack. I was pretty lucky with taking out MG gunner and taking over it.

 

Spoiler

SMICSnU.jpg

   Not much ammunition is left after this group rushed in, without knowing that their MG is already in our hands.

 

2Qtmf67.jpg

   Now we need to relocate a train with Katusha, and do it quickly before enemies will get some new ideas, i spotted several active AFVs and a tank in their main base.

 

HDDUoAP.jpg

 

zQaG9M3.jpg

   Now MRLS is facing in right direction... hehe.

   One enemy tried to sneak, but was cut with MG burst. We need to fire quickly.

   Next out is out!

   That light tank gor schwacked

   If i will manage to kill a crew of that tank without destroying a tank, it would be very helpfull to finish this mission.

   Thank god, rocket hit warehouse near it, while taking out crew. Perfect!

   Katyusha is empty, no ammunition for it to be found. Time to leave and finish clearing enemy base, and i have an idea how to do it quicker.

 

Spoiler

g2ilteP.jpg

   Central areas of enemy train station are just completely moon-surfaced.

 

I2XDlzH.jpg

   Our trio is now again, on foot and against overwhelming odds - enemies still have 4-5 MG guard towers and 1-2 AFVs active inside of base. Mission is still not finished - we need to take out several tanks that managed to survive not very accurate barrage from MRLS.

 

m3M33Bv.jpg

   MG gunners took out enemy in guard tower and finishing rest of entrance guards was easy task. I picked this place for infiltration because it is close to that tank, crew of which was blown up by Katyusha.

 

QXi0JQp.jpg

   Tank is intact (storage building saved it from rockets), it is also armed and fueled. Excellent!

 

cJvAklm.jpg

   No more chew-chew for that train.

 

ez6gPXE.jpg

   Demolution block is usefull, again!

   At this point this is just complete destruction and utter havoc.

   MG guard towers are easy to deal with, when you have 75 mm HE shell.

   That MG gunner decided to get the fuck out from his tower, haha.

 

wcc5suw.jpg

   Too late, coaxial MG made a short work out of him.

 

0hTPEuX.jpg

   Taking out few remaining Wehrmacht tanks.

 

SkceHvb.jpg

 

NgaoSDz.jpg

   A bit of demolution explosive and that is all - mission is done. Only 1 thing is left to do - take out Katusha so Germans can't use it and disappear.

 

X8AboUT.jpg

   Decided to make a smal detour to enemy train and make sure it is dead as well.

 

07lLj9Q.jpg

   Wet cloths, cows, wooden houses and Panzer 4.

 

iPkQaU5.jpg

   MRLS is out.

   And enemy train full of ammunition is now a smoking pile of burning pieces. Mission is finished!

   And here is British campaign. We are playing as british infiltrators team that is hunting for "Fau-3" guidance system.

Spoiler

dvIogHO.jpg

   David is tasked with taking care of small island near us so main team can get to their incertion area.

 

Tx554KQ.jpg

   Main problem for our small ruber floating thingy is this boat.

 

li9rnSL.jpg

   Our main objective - take out 2 coastal defence guns

 

EN7tOsh.jpg

   There is a serious defences covering beach.

 

nQ4PVqH.jpg

 

me5C3x0.jpg

   Action is starting. Well, after David will get to this island.

 

Spoiler

REC1XMY.jpg

   Suppressed pistol will help us to sneak around for some time.

 

Pcik6jn.jpg

 

qtFwVZD.jpg

   Taking out lights operator

 

doNsedY.jpg

   David decided to take out an island full of germans with just few spare rounds for his pistol and a knife...

 

rwUfGrL.jpg

   My frag that took out a patrol outside of the house triggered an "ALYARM!!!" and now everybody inside of the house are rushing to their positions.

 

woEcByF.jpg

   

Syx1tD1.jpg

   Damn, boat is active. That will be hard to survive that...

 

   Fast, to the save files!

uJvfHpT.jpg

   This time i decided to go straight for enemies in the house instead of that operator on the right.

 

Spoiler

XVs6C3g.jpg

   Heh, looks like SMG fire took out boat crew and only gunners for AA AC are left here.

 

vq7KwZY.jpg

   Taking out Germans between David and the torpedo boat.

 

eaNUN81.jpg

 

D7HSVMS.jpg

   Our target - this position.

 

Smj7RT0.jpg

   Hehehe.

 

cPwTiMh.jpg

 

XywPQpx.jpg

   Position was fully destroyed a moment later, securing landing position for rest of infiltrator group.

 

RrLHEJb.jpg

   Went back to island to grab this AA 20 mm flak autocannon. One of secondary task was to take out this lighthouse, but 20 mm is not enough for that, as i found out.

 

nYvRuOD.jpg

   At least i can reach cannon crew from my position, thanks to a range of that 20 mm flak cannon.

 

6lJMgxB.jpg

   Main team is landed, consisting of sniper and MG gunner.

 

fOC7WBU.jpg

   Grabbed MP-44/STG-44 and now swimming to main land.

 

JbLCZKl.jpg

   Our quite pistol is going to work here as well.

 

qjhfC2u.jpg

   Near David this build-up compound starts. Big caliber HE rounds are visible here, could be useful.

 

ICE7QrE.jpg

   Patrol was dealt with quickly.

 

rDeCpJ2.jpg

   Second team is sneaking to 2nd cannon.

 

TfSswR9.jpg

   Left flank is now clear for a... flanking move.

 

EAtdO2A.jpg

   David is sneaking to this guard house, we need to clear it to be able to take out rear guards of the caostal defence cannon.

 

3bYJLbw.jpg

   Second team started to work - frags into MG nests.

 

3iCB782.jpg

   That frag was very lucky, haha.

 

UDPWlcw.jpg

   After about 1-2 minutes of sporadic gunfire we took out most of enemies near 2nd gun. 

 

4gw1Ia5.jpg

   David started action on his flank, sneaky-sneaky stuff is over.

 

Spoiler

D5R5maT.jpg

   Guard house and Guard tower near it responded with hail of bullets into bushes everywhere. THey don't know where our british commando is, but can't get out of foilage and staying inside is also danger. I move him into place where he is not as likely to be hit as in other bushes - behind this small tent.

 

AG3KOWt.jpg

   Few moments later German troops decided to assault and get into close combat, but good shooting skills and a frag took out attackers. Now we have small moment to do something - attackers are dead and guards inside of building that were overwatching are now reloading. This is our chance!

 

aAFvWut.jpg

   Rushing forward, one bullet managed to find David but he is Ok enough.

 

XRjfUMn.jpg

   House clearing with grenades. Both guards (one with MG) were taken out and this place is almost clear. Only MG gunner in the tower left.

 

0gdTzzw.jpg

   Was running inside of the house near windows through which this soldier had eyes on David, forced him to get to reloading and used this moment.

 

sTh9Mt6.jpg

   Second team took out cannon crew, just few enemies left nearby.

 

6R8xRAl.jpg

 

ef3jzvA.jpg

 

wVStX1Y.jpg

   Cannon is in our hands, currently preparing it for usage.

 

hKnSkS0.jpg

   Reinforcements arrived.

 

idxMzmg.jpg

   203 mm cannon rampage!

 

Spoiler

TSPctzg.jpg

   HAHAHAHA

 

dollnfB.jpg

   Thats what i call bunker-busting.

 

3SACXlq.jpg

   Lighthouse is smashed into pieces.

 

DyraxO1.jpg

   Used last rounds on that thing, but now enemies have no armored vehicles in the area. This patrol car was concerning me, was close to David (thats why i didn't moved him deeper into German base and left inside of cleared guard house).

 

kX0Gf1K.jpg

   Demolution charge is up, time to get out. This 203 mm monster did its job.

 

VxyrH6b.jpg

 

ijVVKW1.jpg

   Now - trench fighting and buner clearing.

 

LMvC0Gx.jpg

   Set fuel tnaks on fire, just to be a bigger dick to nazis. 

 

zim7Esq.jpg

   Enemies are randomly jumping on us from several directions, so Hovard is covering Robert, who is preparing to clear a bunker.

 

8U1murs.jpg

   Nice way to learn internal layout of those bunkers. Nobody was in this one, but i know that others have bad guys in them.

 

Ol435Vg.jpg

   Slowly moving through trenches. You can see on the map a group of soldiers moving through beaches to attack us from southern side and several red triangles (MGs).

 

WiH6wy5.jpg

   Waiting if those Germans are going to commit for their attack or decided to sit on overwatch.

 

2UD7bVU.jpg

   Enemies decided to stay near MGs, so we are pushing them.

 

PNwY0zZ.jpg

   After frag took out MG enemy infantry became angry and now pushing us. Robert and Hovard rushed to damaged bunker that was very likely to be clear inside and use it as a cover against enemies pushing from 2 direction.

 

MbhYQJc.jpg

   Soldier on the right was suppressed by MG and frag finished him.

 

AEpAu6H.jpg

   To prevent too much pressure put on my second team David was tasked with making some noise with MG in guard tower next to guard house.

 

Lomlwvp.jpg

   Took out MG gunner, tower next to him looks like a good point to get to.

 

CBJfsxA.jpg

   Counterattack got wacked by a frag.

 

9gLz5U7.jpg

   One of enemies managed to get behind, but i was quicker with panic full-auto fire, heh.

 

UXJ0VeW.jpg

   We made enough of noise, 2nd team don't have enemies around. Time to relocate and make sure that quad MG/AC gun is not going to be a problem when we will get to 1st cannon.

 

v3AYbMp.jpg

   Perfect throw!

 

qcFOafF.jpg

   Hey guys, don't be so mad near a row of 203 mm HE shells.

 

nremVie.jpg

   Ok, i can do that as well. Tried to throw it to place that is far enough from HE shells. Was very nervous if that will trigger those big ass HE shots

 

8qzPrA1.jpg

   Clearing last enemies between 2 bunkers that are still under control of Germans.

 

c8muBLX.jpg

 

Um8CFOw.jpg

   Now bunkers - trying to take out MG gunner with demolution charge. Can't use 1st 203 mm cannon as this bunker is overwatching entrance to a cannon section of fortifications.

 

M4grIiD.jpg

   Damn, after 2 attempts this bastard is still alive.

 

4dcTqFi.jpg

   Managed to sneak a small frag

 

JSeQqIO.jpg

   Last MG gunner is still there and i can't sneak a frag into place where it can splash his nazi ass.

 

BgSNCLZ.jpg

   Frags from outside don't work and i don't want to risk to run to this slit from outside. 

 

eojoqer.jpg

   Using knowledge of layout of first bunker i knew how it was inside, but didn't knew where exactly enemy is. Risked when rushed Robert inside, but lucky for me MG gunner didn't had LOS on the entrance.

 

LK1ZN4K.jpg

   Now to the cannon!

 

XN2E3gW.jpg

   Leave only destruction and ruins behind! HAHAHA!

 

3Klf35e.jpg

   Cannon is done, only last task is left to complete - get out, futher to our main mission.

 

KiwfGgK.jpg

   Second operation in UK campaign. This time we need to meet with French Resistance agent who have information where Germans conducted tests of their new "Fau-3" missile.

EnfuuRf.jpg

   Our small group of commandos reached a village where agend should meet us.

 

Spoiler

VH0k9Ud.jpg

   This is a house where we should meet with agent. It is located on our side of the river, which should make things easier.

 

074nTAs.jpg

   Train station nearby.

 

HGApPQw.jpg

   Futherst bridge is well defended by 2 AFVs and patrols.

 

JYf32ZG.jpg

   Looking around the map saw this little bugger on the corner of this village. Hmmm.

 

iXGUu3j.jpg

   Area to the left from us is destroyed part of this small town full of German patrols.

 

   Action phase.

nZxD9Ao.jpg

   Suppressed pistol still helps with patrols.

 

Spoiler

auzC9fV.jpg

   Didn't noticed that thing near our starting position. Crew is outside and if it have fuel, it will be very useful.

 

Tepxs1i.jpg

   David is tasked with some sneaking. At close range this pistol is 1 shot kill, but at range it loses damage potential (on top of higher chances to miss)

 

DatAvua.jpg

   Wow, that was very lucky to get whole crew so quick!

 

518QddA.jpg

   Between position of our new 8x8 armored car and building Germans have this fortificaltion.

 

tG18fG1.jpg

   Road accident, heh.

 

wLrKj3V.jpg

   Now let's get in!

 

4AGNeaI.jpg

   WIth this SdKfz-232 i cleared area around us. Not exactly stealty agend-type shit, but still fun.

 

cWxFtGE.jpg

   Preparing to meet some enemy armor.

 

UNJLcl2.jpg

   Effective but kind of risky way to deal with those guns is to drive to them on full speed and opening fire at last moment, they will not have time to depress them to the horizontal level.

 

qyrTHdH.jpg

   Now i can use it. Looking at the map i'm starting to think that agent was busted - place is crawling with nazis.

 

IeJmw5R.jpg

 

Z6U5eB3.jpg

 

aelQ3zO.jpg

 

zkfSd6g.jpg

   Also ruined this train station, preparing to clear it as well.

 

Pq8UCTG.jpg

 

eZddboh.jpg

   Almost whole area around house is clear, few bad guys are left to deal.

 

x4ulXJ6.jpg

   Now back to houses near agent's house.

 

fHFN6FD.jpg

   German reinforcement arrived, but i have 20 mm autocannon to deal with some light armor vehicles. Not exactly best penetration on that AC, but it works.

 

gEH4Kgu.jpg

 

mOdPJU0.jpg

   Great, now i set house on fire, haha.

 

   Phase 2.

UpsKxO3.jpg

   I was lucky that house was made out of stone and roof didn't catch on fire. Killed troopers inside who prepared an ambush. Looks like our contact from Resistance was captured.

 

Spoiler

RZEoWJl.jpg

   Agent is in this building of administraton of a town.

 

zid2pBN.jpg

   I rushed through a bridge and made a sharp left turn, away from central square.

 

9bLo2Go.jpg

   A group of enemies saw our AFV and rushed us with support of armored car, but i took care of them.

 

S7Pcay3.jpg

 

JN8U6hi.jpg

   Took part of a house with it, haha.

 

oIeN44u.jpg

   My plan now is to grab German rocket launcher and take out as much enemies as possible. Our armored 8x8 is rushing forward, around central square.

 

DF1naNc.jpg

   Area cleared...

 

cIcGmDT.jpg

   HahaHAHAHAHA!

 

b6XtdHz.jpg

   Ughhh, before using Nebelwerfer i need to clear houses around launcher.

 

eOLtm8T.jpg

 

Tiiw80k.jpg

   Time to play around.

 

brHyKAl.jpg

   Light tank is no longer a problem.

 

ZDQCF49.jpg

 

7qG8LUC.jpg

   Several enemy soldiers tried to assault our position, but thanks to my armored car they are not that big of a problem.

 

4FKpxB1.jpg

   They tried to take agent away, but we cought them.

 

2WxXY3t.jpg

 

88Ql0iu.jpg

   Equipping our new fighter.

   One of objectives was completed with Nebelwerfer.

   House clearing with a demo charge

 

L0nUE3Q.jpg

 

uvvvJEo.jpg

   Germans brought more reinforcements, with light tank support. It is only MG-armed, so we can exploit that.

   Last enemy is finished, except arrived motorbike on other side of the river.

   3rd op in UK campaign. Our small commando team arrived to place where new "Fau-3" missile hit the gorund after test launch.

kidYz1v.jpg

   This place is just a swamp with lots of grass with several houses on the left flank.

 

Spoiler

xQUHXLx.jpg

 

1hrdlig.jpg

   Missile itself and guard around it.

U3XflcB.jpg

   Marked route on the right.

 

ywpUGy7.jpg

   So let's start this operation. David is ahead with his suppressed pistol.

 

Spoiler

OZTO5e0.jpg

   Decided to go loud to attract some of patrols closer to take them out.

 

rZV673O.jpg

   Nobody came, so David is tasked to move on the left flank. Path from our boat to crash site is under watch of several camouflaged snipers, it is better to flank them.

 

os5SYFR.jpg

   Pushed to the walls and cought a patrol.

 

LnuHkvm.jpg

   Plenty of germans, but grenades and MP-44 is enough to deal with them.

 

GveD7Tr.jpg

 

sTAROEy.jpg

 

ttRO54a.jpg

   That barn have enemies deep inside, will be hard to get it with grenades from the entrance without exposing my trooper.

 

jW0n2Nd.jpg

   That cheeky little window allowed to clear that barn.

 

a8w6oMs.jpg

   Enemy reinforcements are moving through the same road as rest of my team is.

 

Spoiler

kKVJQPU.jpg

   Not sure if i should attack, too many of them and no cover whatsoever

 

WMIEOou.jpg

   WIll try to breech this formation with flanking distraction attack by David. 

 

b8pwMoa.jpg

   AT grenade was hard to get to target, but was worth it.

 

hYonDoh.jpg

   Squad of Germans are now searching for my soldier. Suppressed pistol and foilage should help somewhat with taking care of enemies.

 

DVtaZHU.jpg

   Um... this is bad...

 

pWd8RlG.jpg

   This is really bad!

 

MGI4GWO.jpg

   David was splashed, but managed to get a frag into a spot where it took out all enemies in the turret.

 

raLiXVC.jpg

   Now we can crack this group without too much of a problem, once vehicles are immobilized.

 

ePeqUK3.jpg

   Tried to get into position to lob a grenade into gunner position, that pesky nazi suppressed us.

 

2QAvIUk.jpg

   Molotov should work just fine, heh.

 

kjrcKol.jpg

   Haha, Molotov works really well!

 

KIJsXwO.jpg

   

etOtW9X.jpg

   Haha.

 

d6g3WZQ.jpg

   Now grass is on fire. I didn't showed my 2 attempts to burn this place down by playing with matches (can be found in enemy soldiers inventory) and failing to find a good place that will allow fire to spread out.

 

ptPyFWx.jpg

   Well, this fire from Molotov and blown up 8x8 AFV is doing that instead, hahaha.

 

e8cJ64t.jpg

 

v3LZji3.jpg

   David got to missile parts and found out that guidance system was already taken. We need to get out to this place.

 

6VjgLyu.jpg

   Clearing island with some fire.

 

2D1jk7i.jpg

   Kind of afraid to stick around here until fire is active.

 

WJG10A4.jpg

   MG fire managed to get a sniper. 73 shots 1 kill.

   Yes, you can grab chickens in this game and throw them.

   4th mission. We learned that Germans pulled guidance system from"Fau-3" and now we need to incercept convoy with guidance system, and we have less than 16 minutes to prepare an ambush.

rRTL0w8.jpg

   Dog from previous operation helped us to get through swamps and found owner, killed by Nazis.

 

Spoiler

   We can blow up those rocks to block main path of the convoy.

   No time to look around, we need to advance. David is doing his patrol-clearing work.

   There is a lot of enemies inside of that house according to marks on the map.

   Random patrol, may be a problem.

   A bit of Molotov should have chance to get those bad guys out of cover, we need to clear place for an actual ambush.

   That is dangerous vehicle, 20 mm flak gun can do some good damage against soft targets. Will take it out with a frag.

 

c28Zc38.jpg

   Vehicle after a frag grenade got all its crew killed and it smacked into a wall.

   Now i'm clearing village to a degree that will allow to get ambush working. But we have little time left.

   20 mm autocannon is usefull to take out soft targets, i want to leave Panther without cover so i can move around to take it out.

   That was close!

   Germans are chasing Robert, he is almost out of stamina and there are no good positions on other side of the road to hold against enemiy push.

   Infantry is searching for us in burned part of this French village

 

n7z3Mfd.jpg

   Panther is moving back to cargo truck.

 

6hKTOE8.jpg

   It was damaged and disabled by 20 mm shells, which make things easier for me. I was specifically aiming at it and fired few rounds to damage it enough.

 

VMJVsAY.jpg

   Clearing areas with grenades. Explosions triggered another push by enemy soldiers, but this compund in easier to defend at least.

 

3ijX2xM.jpg

   Perfect moment to take it out!

 

gISL1DW.jpg

   After this shot Hovards will run away and we will try to suck in some of German infantry.

   Last mission in UK campaign. End of it was bugged for me, but at that point mission was basically complete anyway.

5ZQ9Cbp.jpg

   This time we need to arrange our extraction. Big field nearby should work, but Germans have a base nearby.

 

Spoiler

etpi4w0.jpg

   Checkpoint at exit from this valley were my team is.

 

1DSwcya.jpg

   Hmm, interesting things are placed here.

 

UukESZn.jpg

   Reinforcements arrived very early. Note bugged road textures, same problem managed to prevent me from doing last thing on this mission, lol.

 

npdsbr6.jpg

   Time to get out, this is becoming crazy.

 

ZNUoAha.jpg   A lot of enemies arrived, they are probably searchig for our team.

 

6J7o7o2.jpg

   Ambushed several enemies while they were sweeping this valley. But enemies overwhelmed us, so... to the save files!

 

Spoiler

B38LYz1.jpg

   I decided to clear checkpoint before reinforcements arrive.

 

BvFZPVY.jpg

 

72O7N6y.jpg

   Well, at first map was looking like easy deal, not anymore.

 

HSDml6B.jpg

 

BtpxXc7.jpg

   Missed by a meter, but fire should manage to do at least some damage to crew or infantry near.

 

O2rcYx8.jpg

   Well, that was unexpected. Robert got almost killed by burst from 20 mm flak.

 

yZHZgAW.jpg

   After a bit of healing by Robert, nearby German patrol arrived back to checkpoint.

 

Ow9Xq4I.jpg    He is going to be finished in a moment, together with enemy on the edge of the map.

 

hnuK2Ve.jpg

   Tank decided to park just in front of main entrance to this small base. Our task is to give a signal to evac plane and we need a fuel for that (several fires arranged in T-shape).

 

Spoiler

bfe9fwJ.jpg

   Team is moved away from road in probably the only semi-safe place where we also have good cover. I'm planning to take out tank and try to lure more enemies to general area of main entrance, which should allow me to attack this compound from different angle.

 

iSluQ4L.jpg

   Found a good angle on that tank and AT rocket launcher that i saved from previous operations was very helpful.

 

Ms7NrmB.jpg

   MG guard tower was shredding those bushes pretty well, but Hovards left them just after AT rocket connected with Panzer 4 side armor.

 

xIPHSII.jpg

   Was expecting big rush from Germans, so prepared team to meet them. They didn't rushed us, surprisingly.

 

8YI9nXM.jpg

   But the were searching around area from which i made a shot with RL.

 

Y4mQ7W4.jpg

   This time Robert with trophy MG is on point.

 

aKZnSg2.jpg

   2 AFVs are now moving through this area. I decided to wait and see where they are moving.

 

1IDodu7.jpg

   First one passed us without getting involved.

 

CWBnh9S.jpg

   Halftrack went to another checkpoint.

 

juRIMMd.jpg

   Well timed frag into MG tower - hard to do but once there it is very effective.

 

01OP8jF.jpg

   I wan to punch a hole in the fence, this motorbike will be used for that. Will try to slam it into fence and if it will not work - blow it up.

 

2r3inwR.jpg

   Managed to build up enough speed to punch through that wire fence.

 

J1FEQYd.jpg

 

YbqznnG.jpg

   Clearing rest of enemy base.

FbVfIm3.jpg

   Entrance to guard tower is not a bad window for bullets to come in, haha.

 

h05lOs1.jpg

   Last guard of that base.

 

xsoHG6B.jpg

   So now i decided that having a half-track is not a bad idea to move some cargo to field nearby quicker. Time for those guys to donate one such half-track!

 

Spoiler

xGtGgaU.jpg

   After i cleared all dismounts with frags, this thing decided to go berserk and rampage through base. Robert is inside of guard tower near breach in the fence, waiting for that thing. I'm not sure if he should stay in there as this AFV demolished one such guard tower.

 

g2exG4I.jpg

   Was a bit lucky - enemy tried to use MG against us, but Robert had higher ground.

 

ND7QxjA.jpg

   Searching boxes in this base.

   And what we needed - some fuel for fire signals.

   Those bad guys can be a problem for lanind/taking off evac plane. It will be better to take them out, but i'm not sure how exactly do that - too many armored targets that have pretty serious weaponry.

   At first decided to clear area around armored vehicles to be able to choose angles of attack.

   After some moving around and checking things, i found cheeky spot to deliver AT grenade.

   Looks like fire from first vehicle spread to 8x8 AFV. Hovards pulled bazooka out and ready to meet LT.

   This armored group is finished.

 

OR4WKo2.jpg    And here is a bugged part - textures that were supposed to hint where to put firewood did not rendered, so i had hard time to "guess" where they were.

   What you do at this point is just placing firewood, use some fuel to make them light up faster and use matches to start fire. If you do all 5 correctly, place should land on this field and pick this commando team and mission ends. Let's count this mission as done, heh.

   And we finally reached US campaign!

   First mission - we are paradropped to enemy territory, but somethign went wrong and unit was scattered. Now we need to reunite with our soldiers and leave this place, as Germans have plenty of troops here. Our task is to assemble a squad (4-5 soldiers) before leaving LZ area.

   My soldier have no proper gun to fight. That is unexpected.

   At least we have knifes.

   2 other paratroopers were gunned down by half-track and now that thing is dispatching a search team, they probably spotted me.

   One nazi was found by a knife. Now we need to sit tight and don't trigger that group of enemy soldiers.

   2nd soldier under my command, he on the other side of the road from unit commander.

 

vAmaWVG.jpg

   Search team is moving back to half-track, time to fill our pockets.

 

KkU2pJl.jpg

   Second soldier is used to draw attention of enemies.

   Germans were pushed out of the field

   Number of AA guns is located in this territory, they could be a big problem for infantry.

   After fire was over search team moved to burned up field. They are now closer to 2nd paratrooper.

   When several nazis walked back to the road, i couldn't miss this opportunity

 

fQ5HbgL.jpg

   We kind of cleared areas next to us, now we have a moment to breathe and look around.

   Preparing for futher combat.

   A lot of troops is located around river.

   Plenty of defensive guns and even 88 mm cannon to deal with. 8x8 AFV should help me with this task.

 

iYBXTt0.jpg

   I decided to flank this big group of troops near bridge and cross river in other place. My troops will get to 8x8 AFV and will try to capture it.

   Other paratroopers were less lucky with landing area.

 

gEeWeJu.jpg

   John Lee Perkins (kek) is going to take out crew of that armored gun carrier.

 

l89lrIi.jpg

   Heh, we spotted paratrooper in a bunker. Now we have a proper AFV crew, haha.

   Waiting this convoy to pass, don't want to waste ammunition in gun carrier on those things.

   Enemy armor is rolling through our landing zone.

   Clearing area from AA emplacements

   And enemy patrols as well.

 

IWOel7P.jpg

   LT tried to attack us, but our gun carrier have 50 mm cannon, while LT - only MGs. Still, it could take out wheels on our 8x8 wheeled tin can.

 

AuA0JxN.jpg

   -1 light tank and infantry around it will be gone, soon.

 

QJRlIvU.jpg

   Now i need to deal with tanks near bridge. Those things can be a serious problem if enemies will decide to use them against us. Better to put them out of action when we are ready to deal with serious armor.

 

ElH8XWA.jpg

   I can't penetrate their armor, bu HE shells can take their tracks out, which we already done with first tank.

 

QMS756p.jpg

 

4FKjQ5d.jpg

   New soldier landed near us!

 

SNJjBMK.jpg

   Lucky for us he had bazooka. I wanted to leave German tanks immobilized, but now i can take out one that is near us and still can try to sneak a shot at my armored wheeled death trap.

 

ys5oaZE.jpg

   Now our new squadmate is fighting through search team to get to immobile enemy medium armor.

 

CO8etnb.jpg

   More reinforcements, they are moving to bridge.

 

jIKf4Pd.jpg

   Perfect moment for flanking shot!

 

RJCiMxF.jpg   Weird thing is that light tank is still active.

 

OM8fhDQ.jpg

   Not anymore!

psffeoy.jpg

   I'm not going to try to finish second one. Too many enemies are near it.

 

Gb8LRH0.jpg

   One of Germans had this steel breastplate, now it is mine. We are becoming rather well equipped group of fellas.

 

Spoiler

76ZDCdh.jpg

   Search team that was dispatched to find RPG gunner was dealt with.

 

U1xSMRy.jpg

   Uh, ok, i reconsidered fate of this tank.

 

IN1XBTX.jpg

   Another LT. Hmm, now i want to try something risky. Tank to the right from John is damaged, but turrets looks like it is in working condition. I let this LT to pass by and then order Perkins to jump into that Panzer 2.

 

mMYFDCo.jpg

   Well, this tank have turret stuck. At least gun is working.

 

4TrMu9P.jpg

   Haha, that was lucky moment.

 

EJ7OS3n.jpg

   We have enough troops to get out. Time to leave this place, too many enemies.

 

Spoiler

C2WYmPE.jpg

   But before running away, i need to clear path. My Puma ran out of main gun ammo, so we need to use something else to punch through.

 

3J65M95.jpg

   Something like this 88 mm cannon, hehehe.

   After few more shots against individual target we leave this gun and make sure nobody can use it after us.

 

Hx8p3l2.jpg

   Same with 4 barrel flak gun

 

rrmUZoI.jpg

   5th paratrooper on our way, he is blocked inside of that house. Puma have more than enough MG ammo to clear this area, if we use it properly.

 

McuYUrw.jpg

   ... like driving it like a mad.

   And we are done!
