With the addition of Sahrani to our island line-up, we're going to be doing another multiplayer co-op campaign. This will be in the same vein of our Isla Duala and Takistan campaigns over recent years. The first mission in the campaign will hopefully be held next week (18 April).
We'll take a brief break for our regular force-on-force event the following week, and continue from there.
Check out this short teaser clip I made for some more background on the story leading up to the start of the campaign:
Update 18 April
Okay, the campaign kicks off tonight (18 April). For the first phase, Force Recon is at the tip of the spear. Coalition forces need to secure an airfield quickly and quietly, so Force Recon operators are deploying by boat to sabotage the defences guarding the Rahmadi airfield.
Next, Force Recon operators move onto the mainland to link up with RACS resistance on the west coast of Sahrani. Once united, the RACS/Marines team moves out into the nearby area to strike several objectives.

Campaign mission #3 preview. The SLA are pushing hard to capture Cayo ahead of allied reinforcements. Time is of the essence, move fast into Cayo and push back the incoming assault. If successful, move ahead and seize the fuel depot just outside Cayo.
CDF armor forces near San Peregrino are prepared to move north along the coast to the munitions depot near Cedras, for rearming. The 6 CDF BMP-2 units will be under direct command of a 4 man special forces team, who will also provide support via thermal imaging optics to detect AT threats under cover of night.
En route to the munitions depot is Estrella, which must be searched and cleared of any caches of AA weapons.
The assault on the Pariaso airfield begins today. Your squad will kick off the attack by moving to Point November, locating two ZSU trucks at the airfield, and destroying them with Javelins. Cruise missiles will then strike two key areas of the airfield, before your group and support units move to capture it.
In close air support are two AH-64, one armed with Hellfire to support against ground threats, and the other armed with Sidewinders to guard the skies.
Along the coast of southen Sahrani is the city of Dolores. This area has holdouts of heavily armed SLA, who have fortified themselves inside the town. Due to continued anti-air threats from the north, the cleanup of Dolores will be handled by infantry and artillery.
Equipped with an M1129 Mortar Carrier Stryker, your infantry group will visually identify and strike enemy strong points within the city. Moving into the city and capturing the three bridges is your overall objective.
I thought the regular tactic for dolores was to try and LGB it with harriers, have many evil shilka's, usually end up lasing the wrong thing, and annihilate half or more of the squad with one ill placed bomb drop? Or was it the approach from the east in 5 tons and get blown up on the road within five minutes by the artillery on the hills, or end up getting cut up in that orchard (I always called it that) by the church trying to suppress the engineers as they cleared the bridge of explosives?
