Operation Steppenwolf is a dynamic multiplayer mission that scales with the number and type of participant client aircraft. For that reason it can also be played in single player. Both sides are flyable. Mission goal is the complete elimination of enemy armored vehicles.

Russian forces are pitted against a coalition of US and French forces. Blue forces are holed in near the western seashore of Georgia, and are under attack from all sides by Russian armored divisions. The primary locations of these attacks are near Senaki, Kutaisi and Gali. Both sides rely heavily both on helicopter forces and airpower. Blue has their Carrier Battle Group near the Turkish border, and Red’s carrier is near Gudauta. All airfields within the theater of operation are active, and both sides will launch fighters and bombers from their airfields throughout the mission. All players should monitor airfields for enemy activity. Ground attack aircraft should closely coordinate with fighter protection.
Because of the condensed nature of the theater, this mission is particularly suited for helicopter operations. Helicopters are tasked with troop transport, sling-loading and CSAR.
