Offesivie Operations
« on: 14 Nov 2005, 23:58:19 »
Hi, my question today has to do with all the different aspects of offensive operations.

1) Can some one simply help me with a list of all the different themes you could have in an "offensive Operation".

Thanks,
NightJay0044

Offensive action can have only one theme: to destroy the armed forces of the enemy by seizing the initiative.

D'you know, if I didn't know better I'd sometimes think that there were people on this forum who hadn't read their von Clausewitz.    ::)  ;D

Perhaps if you clarify exactly what you mean by "theme" .....

This might end up getting moved to Mission Ideas but we'll see how it goes.

What I could mean by "theme" is:

Is okay, maybe a list of all the different types of operatoins that you could have. Such as:

-An Assualt on an enemy town.
-A helicopter attack on an enemy convoy.

Also if you know any great sites the you would recomment that lists all this information that I'm talking about that would be appreciated. Thanks. hope this helps.

Bloody hell that's practically an infinite list.   Right, mission ideas it is.   Keep it related to OFP, everybody.

  • SAD - Search and Destroy

A unit (usually a platoon or greater) is inserted on or near a target, and attempts to destroy vehicles, munitions, and personnel in the target area. This is usually followed by defensive preparations to hold the area against a counter-attack. The unit can be inserted by slicks, vehicle, APCs, aircraft, or by foot to attack the target.

  • SAR/CSAR - Search and Rescure/ Combat SAR

A unit is deployed to an area to recover a downed aircraft, or find a lost unit, etc.

  • COMPAR/CP - Combat Patrol (abreviations may vary depending on military schooling)

A unit (usually a platoon) enters a defined Area of Operations (AO) and actively patrols, searching for and attempting to destroy any Opposing Forces (OPFOR) in the area.

  • ALPHA BRAVO - Ambush to you

Any unit or team finds an area of much cover (versus concealment), plans fields of fire, lays APERS (antipersonell) or claymores along a well-used route of the OPFOR. When the OPFOR enters the target area, the ambush is executed, then the unit exits the area as fast as possible.

hell, i think if could combine a few of the above ideas into one mission where the player has to divide up his squad and direct each detail to acomplish a task, you can make a damn good mission
CRIMSON REIGN COMMING..... eventually :/
