This mission is a modern Falklands War 2 conflict simulation, Set in the year 2009, with a reasonably accurate, carefully researched layout and proper unit names for the period (circa 2009).
Units and weapons are rough equivalents based on size, weight and technology, obviously limited by the asset types available in DCS World.
Basic way-points and triggers are used in this version, but no scripts are utilised.
The layout of the Falkland Islands is portrayed using the east coast of Crimea and the Taman Peninsula of Russia, the Kerch Strait therefore plays the role of the Falkland Sound which is the sea divide between the east and west Falklands islands.
The mission utilises the combined arms add-on for control of all available units including two AI flying F-15Cs on the British side and four AI flying Mirages on the Argentine side. These can be fully controlled by players in their cockpits if desired.
*THE MISSION CAN BE USED AS A MULTI PLAYER or SINGLE PLAYER MISSION*
SITUATION IN BRIEF;
ARGENTINA / RED side;
Argentina invades the Falklands Islands and captures RAF Mount Pleasant airbase (Anapa) . It lands troops and hardware in two waves in order to try to capture Stanley port town (Novorossiysk) and then Stanley civilian airfield (Novorossiysk airfield).
Argentina uses some loaned Russian equipment such as the SU-24 (as was a possibility at the time of the scenario).
Argentina also uses converted tanker ships registered under various other countries flags to covertly land a rudimentary FARP setup on the West Island. This is to provide helicopter support as well as landing troops and armour on the east island.
Argentina therefore has 2 x UH-1H and 2 x Gazelle helicopters available at the FARP on the west island.
Attack as the Argentinians and defeat the British, capturing RAF Mount Pleasant (Anapa) and establishing control.
Try to suppress any radar sites left over after the initial attack.
Try to take out any pop-up British radar sites.
Sink British ships.
Destroy any troops or armour.
Use JTAC cars for lasing targets if / where possible.
BRITAIN / BLUE side;
Britain is caught on the back foot and is unprepared for and surprised by the invasion.
Luckily Britain's carrier group HMS Illustrious (USS Tarawa ) with it's embarked Harriers is in the area of the islands and can be utilised in their defence.
Stanley civilian airfield (Novorossiysk airfield) is used as a fallback and interim base for all British forces during the conflict.
Britain also has four newly arrived Interceptors (F-15Cs playing the part of EF-2000 Typhoons) at Mount Pleasant.
Britain has 1 x Mi-8 and 2 x Gazelle helicopters available at a FARP on the east island and 3 x Mi-8 helicopters are available on Stanley airfield.
Defend the Islands as the British to retain / regain sovereignty, If RAF Mt Pleasant is captured by the Argentines, Stanley civilian airfield will then be utilised by the RAF until RAF Mount Pleasant can be recaptured.
Try to take out any pop-up Argentine radar sites.
Sink Argentine ships.
Destroy any troops or armour.
Use JTAC cars and the RAF Reaper drone for lasing targets if / where possible.
