There is a lack of chopper missions for OFP so I thought I'd make one.
This is an Apache mission set on Kolgujev on the West side. The initial objective is to aid some ground units in attacking a heavily defended Russian base. However, after that, a far more interesting storyline unfolds which involves the player in most aspects of OFP chopper combat.
This mission is not easy, especially if you are rusty on chopper combat in OFP. Having tested the mission a lot (at least the first parts), I've worked out how to play it, and so I've written a walkthrough if you get stuck (it does not atm cover the final objectives as I havent tested them thoroughly enough yet). The mission requires patience so it will not appeal to all.
I believe this mission has the potential to be a pretty decent chopper mission, but it's not necessarily quite there yet. There are some weak areas. For instance, the voices are largely computer-generated. Also, I'm not convinced some of the scripting will work as it should on all computers. A couple of the cutscenes in the middle of the mission are rough and will require a bit more work. Its not realistic in all parts, but it should be fun instead.
Although the first objectives have been tested many times, the very last one, where you fight off some Hinds, has only been tested right the way through once (I am very busy with other things atm so I dont have a lot of time to test it), so I would appreciate feedback on it.
If you can think of a different name for the mission (Apache Assault is not a good name) please email me with it and I'll give you a credit in the Readme.
The mission is a relatively large download but it does not need any addons. Resistance is required.
Thanks in advance for any feedback you can give me. I've spent a lot of time on this so I would like the final version to be good, but without feedback I'll probably fail
