On late 5 November the 3rd Battalion of the Parachute Regiment dropped at El Gamil Airfield, clearing the area and establishing a secure base for incoming support aircraft and reinforcements. At first light on the 6 November Commandos of Nos 42 and 40 Commando Royal Marines stormed the beaches, using landing craft of WW2 vintage. Salvos from the battlegroup standing offshore opened fire, giving good covering fire for the landings and causing considerable damage to the Egyptian batteries and gun emplacements. The town of Port Said sustained great damage and was seen to be alight.
Meeting stiff resistance as they moved inland, No. 45 Commando assaulted by helicopter and upon landing, moved inland. Several helicopters were hit from shore batteries and casualties were sustained. Friendly fire from British carrier borne aircraft caused heavy casualties to 45 Commando and HQ. Street fighting and house clearing was the order of the day. Again, stiff opposition came from well entrenched sniper positions which caused a number of casualties.
3rd Battalion of British Para you are a NCO para whos team is inserted paradrop in and fight your way to secure hostile airfield and destroy all enemy forces
As a Marine Commandos at first break as part of the beach head by landing craft you must fight way up beach with artillery support from naval guns destroy artillery positions and hostiles and move inland into damaged town
As a Commandos carry out helicopter borne attack under heavy shore battery fire land on outskirts of city and push forward into the city secure city through hellish street fighting and enemy sniping..I think I will also try to have this mission also with the player taking the role of the helicopter pilot I think it would be quite scary flying into heavy artillery position zones
I have also been thinking of using the historical scenario with modern troops kinda like the scenario unfolding nowadays but would this take away from the original idea?
