  1. And finally from the extraction LZ at Son Tay 40 minutes after Callsign Blueboy's deliberate crash landing into the compound … Not even close to @Bud Backer's comic artistry I know, but I hope you like it.
  2. Possibly the Bin Laden thing but that was set in Pakistan and was an SF operation. A lot of my early Afghan stuff was based on actual operations conducted by 3 Commando Brigade during Op HERRICK 5 of which I have direct personal knowledge. Some of those were deliberate night operations with a specific goal, such as the raid on Jugroom Fort and were therefore set at night because the actual operation took place at night. As @Zveroboy1 has said, to get context, you should watch the documentary on which his mission is based. I think this is the first Episode:
  3. I've been three times, once with the British Army and twice with the Australian Army and I'm due out on a plane to Kabul this week. Essentially you are correct, your standard insurgent initiated fire fight would generally be a daytime only activity. Night time was generally reserved for sleeping, IED planting, intimidating locals and IDF attacks.
  4. Sh1t the bed mate … that's an area about four times larger than I would have gone for if I'd made that map. Good luck with that tree placement 😉
  5. Yes they will - banged a couple of large shell craters and a couple of junk Flavour Objects down … thanks for the idea and have a like.
  6. View from the SW Guard Tower as Callsign Blueboy deliberately crash lands into the Son Tay POW Camp Compound:
  7. Son Tay map is finished … Quite a compact map 560m wide x 928m high.
  8. Not an exact match but you get the idea: Compound and road orientation was an issue for this one hence the imperfect match, but good enough for government work as they say.
  9. Historically accurate too …. how many POW's did you count? 😉
  10. Yes - go into the Mission part of the editor and change the time of day. Whether it would mess anything up … I have no idea, try it and see.
