  1. Thats a cool shot! Just wondering in the real military is it normal to group like that during scouting? I play arma with a realistic sim group and i remember being told to never group up like that during missions.
  2. Well I guess my thread inadvertently helped others to be more open about their storyline without the fear of getting harsh criticism. I think most people who play any CM games long enough would have their own imagined storyline no matter how inaccurate to ridiculous it may sound, it is always good to share our thoughts with each other and provide feedback that aims to add more value to the narrative instead of demoralizing its creators. 😉
  3. Yes, i like that we are finally all sharing our own backstory and adding in more flavor to each other's. For story sake, i think after US have fully withdrawn from Syria after the disaster in my storyline. They decide to help Ukraine to combat Russia as revenge for their hand in the organized uprising of the rebel coalition. This should lead to CMBS with US/Ukraine forces vs Russia forces.
  4. Yeah, I like this idea, I think we're going somewhere with this. I am also throwing my story to my local arma group for some feedback.
  5. The Lost Legion breakout sounds fun and maybe one of the mission will include similar situation. Yeah I thinks US vs Mixed alliance would benefit the story credibility since most people here think the US cannot be defeated even if it's a 20:1 ratio.
  6. ok thanks for your opinion
  7. Thanks for your feedback and pointing out some questions. I'll try to answer most of them. (Let's also pretend Israel does not exist, btw) Israel did help in the initial stages with missiles infrastructure bombardment but once US had establish proper bases throughout Syria they had not much need for Israel's missiles. 1. There is nothing in Assad's army (or the CMSF2 force set) capable of heavily blooding US mechanised main forces in open combat. By themselves no but with years of Russian training and equipment this becomes plausible. Again you have to imagined that the US only had 15,000 men to topple country's government which is not many considering you are fighting in Syria with bigger manpower and on their own turf. FYI: the invasion of Iraq was had a half million in US manpower alone. 15,000 men were part of the first wave and due to lack of public support for this, the US had to limit their troops and instead heavily relied on local rebels groups and support from surrounding allies. 1. How are rebel forces suddenly able to defeat heavy mechanised US units? Or alternatively, restrict US mobility and prevent them from breaking out of the traps they find themselves in. The reason being that the main army was too deep into Syria territory and any links back to friendly bases were now either captured or in disarray, cutting off majority routes for resupply and reorganization. This also splits up part of the army dotting around Syria. 2. What deus ex machina allows RED forces to neutralize US air power? which would otherwise level those newly seized rebel bases, and also allow resupply to the besieged forces. There are several reason why this is possible. US air force could not simply bomb or flatten existing US base as not all of them were taken immediately and they are still friendlies in those bases fighting for their life to get out, since there is no way they would leave their bases to "friendly rebels". Russian air force still control some of the air space i Syria. To avoid possible conflicts with Russia the US were limited to where they could fly in therefore limiting it's ability for ground support. This is every messy and gray situation where every decision would impact either sides heavily. Their goal is to evacuate any remaining troops, regroup and strategize with the new knowledge that they could be facing a united front of Arabs, whereas their initial one was solely based on the support o local militias and only facing the Syrian army. I was largely inspired by the destruction of centre army group during operation Bagration. FWIW I am not doing this mission to spout any Islamic propaganda but to creating a conundrum where the US army is in the perfect political climate whcih would allow severely limited US power in the region and to see how they can react to it.
  8. Seem there was a lot of replies since I last checked. Thanks for all of your supportive comments. The story is this, whether or not it will ever get made is a differwnt matter. But i need to get this off my chest. Backstory: US backed by Turkey send troops into Syria to topple the Assad regime witht the objective of placing a US puppet government. While doing with the support of the Kudish army and other freedom fighters to help maintain territories they have liberated along the way and to keep the peace. After finally reaching Aleppo and fighting a huge and bloody battle with the main core of Assad army. The US won a pyrrhic victory but suffered heavy losses in armor and men. Before the US could even begin to reorganize its army with much needed reinforcement. Several rebel groups stage a well orgamized coup againts the US army to grabbed key milatary bases over Syria. Overnight, several places fell under rebel control. In the confusion and fear, high command dropped support for any rebels including the PKK and blamed them for the coup. This angered them and after a US mortar misfire killed one of their soildier. The PKK soon joined the rebel coalition. Pockets of resistance throughout Syria grew into strongholds, eventually cutting off any supply route from Turkey. Any US equipments that were meant to protect the US army were now seized or used againts them instead. An all out war raged againts the US. A full evacuation order of the US army was issued but it was too little too late. As the combined arms of almost every rebel group in the middle east including some from Iraq fell upon Aleppo, the US army collapsed only addording a few companies to evacuate. Seem there was a lot of replies since I last checked. Thanks for all of your supportive comments. The story is this, whether or not it will ever get made into a full campaign isa different matter. But i need to get this off my chest, and yes it definitely needs polishing. Backstory: US backed by Turkey send troops into Syria to topple the Assad regime with the objective of placing a US puppet government. While doing so with the support of the Kurdish army and other freedom fighters to help maintain territories they have liberated along the way and to keep the peace. After finally reaching Aleppo and fighting a huge and bloody battle with the main core of Assad's army. The US won a pyrrhic victory but suffered heavy losses in and men and material. Before the US could even begin to reorganize its army with much needed reinforcement. Several rebel groups staged a well organized coup against the US army to grabbed key military bases over Syria. Overnight, several places fall under rebel control. In the confusion and fear, high command dropped political and military support for any rebels including the YPG and blamed them for the coup. This angered them and after a US mortar misfire killed one of their soldier. The YPG soon joined the rebel coalition. Pockets of resistance throughout Syria grew into strongholds, eventually cutting off any supply route from Turkey and surrounding friendly areas. Any US equipment that were meant to protect the US army were now seized and used against them instead. In the ensuing power vacuum after the fall of the Syrian government, an all out war raged against the US by rebels with a single goal of seizing Damascus. This sudden up rise caught the US by complete surprise, they have underestimated the underground Russian influence over rebel groups. Turns out the Syrian army were not the only ones with Russian support. A full evacuation order of the US army was issued but it was too little too late. As the combined arms of almost every rebel group in the middle east including some from Iraq fell upon Aleppo with Russian backing. This lead to the collapse of the US army in Syria under the weight of the unfathomnable alliances forged between these radical groups. The US army were only able to evacuate roughly 1000 men out of 15,000 that were assigned to this operation only a year ago. Soon Syria was swallowed whole into a second civil war within the last two decade. The country would never again recover to its once exemplary state of a modern Islamic country.
  9. The advice Comabtintman gave is useful as stated before and I'll be using his advice as pointers when I am designing the campaign. I am just saying its not necessary to pull up a " Do you know who you are talking to? " attitude that's all. He wasn't invalidating any of his advice just stating that he may be suggesting things which are more into mission designing and not backstory/plot which was what I was looking for. 😄
  10. To be fair, he has some points, I don't think we need to pull ranks here. I choose not to believe there is an elitist culture in this forum. I think everyone can express their opinion regardless of who they are talking to. 😅 Cheers.
  11. Thanks for the kind words of support. I won't take any offence but yes I am focusing more on the story for now. Guess playing CM games and looking at campaign and reading historical similarity books pique my interests to create my own narrative using CM platform with my fascination with the Syria war. I can empathize with Combatintman, I think he is just detail oriented. Since most of groghead love realism in our games, my story would definitely benefit from it. FYI: I have most of the story plots in my head.Just a tip but It'll end with the destruction of the US army in Syria.I know it sounds ridiculous but I have worked out the correct geopolitical situation that could make this plausible.
  12. The core unit for the whole campaign would be the light armored Recon Battalion. However the first few mission will be at company level since they had to open and clear the way for the main battalion to come through. I chose the the roads of Rajo cause geographically it's the gateway to many other provinces and is also has the shortest route to Aleppo which is where my campaign will end. The first battle is fairly easy since you're commanding company size and you only need to clear out the towns and secure the roads. You're fighting against the Assad's Syrian army. However later in the story you'll also be fighting against rebels who will be attacking you from places you have conquered. Also since in real life t US had just pulled out from Syria, I feel that this would align with my story with their second intervention few years down the road.
  13. Yes, I am well aware of the gravity of this task and I most certainly do not expect amyone to spent their precious time on making a camapign for me. This is just an idea that I thought up and wanted to put it down and paper and get some feedback. My idea was more towards the narative/plot more than the ability to be able to play it in CMSF 2. It'll be awesome if I can turn this into a short story novel. My roadmap right now is to get the whole story down first, then taking my time to create each of this scenario if I have the time but of course I am always open if anyone wants to chip in as well.
  14. Wow thanks for the long post. A lot of interesting info here. I was looking more of a real life AAR of battles/ mission happened during the current war around Turkey SYRIA border, could be a briefing too. I'll also take a look at the other campaign as well.
  15. Thanks for the suggestion really appreciate it. I am somewhat new to all this, do u know where I can find more authentic source to build up my campaign?
