About The Scenario This is one for the modern ‘Tread heads’ amongst you! This is a revised version updating the orginal to CMSF2, so you will need the base game CMSF2 to play this. Revised AI Plan using triggers; tweaked map using new CMSF terrain features and updated OOB for both Syrian Army and Rebels. This is SF2 version 2 which has a slightly reduced mission time based on player feedback. The actual scenario is very loosely based on events in Daraya, a suburb of Damascus where rebels from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have attempted to create a stronghold near Damascus centre. In August 2012, the Syrian Army defeated the rebel forces and took control of the town. After the failed rebel offensive in late July 2012 ,the Syrian army started a campaign against rebels in the Damascus suburb. This, the 2nd Battle of Darayya, is the ongoing battle between the Syrian Army and the rebels in the Damascus suburbs of Darayya. In mid-December when the Army intensified their attacks with heavy shelling and Tanks raids into the city. This scenario depicts an armoured raid, typical of the tactics used by the Syrian Army to seize control of Daraya. You can view the video which shows these raids using footage (often filmed whilst under fire) shot by the rebels Syria - Men versus Tanks in Daraya - The Powerful T-72 Raids So your scenario looks like the scenes in the above film I’d suggest modding your game using the following excellent mods links are to CMODS: Longleft Flank’s Shot up Building; Pete Wenman’s ‘Squalor’ mod; Pete Wenman’s BlackSea favour objects for CMSF2 Map and Scenario Size This is a fairly small map although it’s very built up. Map Size: 720m x 512m Forces: Syrian Republican Guard armour Vs Syrian rebels (combatants and fighters) Best Played As Can be played RT or WEGO. This is best played Blue Vs Red AI or H2H only. There are two RED AI Plans. If playing H2H it is recommended the more experienced player takes the RED side. The scenario is NOT playable as Red VS Blue AI.

Thanks to Lethaface and Sublime who played this H2H and provided excellent feedback in this regard. Thanks also to Slysniper who took the SF2 version for a spin and provided some useful feedback.

The scenario Coup D'etat has been uploaded and is available at the Scenario Depot III. Link below. http://www.thefewgoodmen.com/tsd3/cm-shock-force-2-2/cm-shock-force-2-scenarios/coup-detat/ rocketman created a very cool PDF map and reference document available at the below link. https://www.dropbox.com/s/n8weqdobt7pidc8/Coup d Etat Reference and Map Document.pdf?dl=0 Enjoy the scenario and if there are any questions feel free to ask here or send me a PM. Have a safe taxi ride. And, as @Sgt.Squareheadsaid, don't get in the red taxis. The player leads a small under equipped rebel force in an early morning (0400hrs) coup attempt to overthrow the governing regime. It is set in the fictional third world country of Abbudin and takes place in heavy urban terrain. The scenario is Red vs Red AI only, heavy urban terrain, all modules required, variable end time (extra hour, 45 minutes for 200VPs). The scenario provides in game intelligence to help guide the decision-making process along with a modified military grid system and an intelligence code. The player can use IEDs, VBIEDs, assassinations, bribery, mercenary units, radio propaganda, extra scenario time and foreign assistance. As the Coup d’etat progresses the player must decide which methods to use and when. All the methods have advantages and disadvantages. Some methods cost Victory Points (VPs). Four VPs for each mercenary, 25 VPs per IED explosion, 50 VPs per VBIED explosion, 100VPs to bribe a regime commander to withdraw his unit, 200 VPs to fight until 0800hrs etc. After 0600 hours the player can choose to use a USMC amphibious force. This force includes the USS Wasp, USS Ticonderoga and USS Oak Hill. This overt outside military intervention will trigger a backlash in the streets of the city………
Ok. So steep learning curve. I am well versed in urban combat however not in the mechanics of it in this game. I suppress I smoke and assualt. My guys get hammered once inside every time. I tried using the hunt command but they keep stopping in the roads. You veterans at this how do you best utilize the game commands to get positive results. If there is any resources on this please link. Again I have the tactics of it down but the way I am employing them ingame doesn't seem to be having positive results. thanks in advance.
The main problem seems to be when I move forward to the next building(s) I get ambushed by a couple of enemy soldiers while my squat is in the open running for cover. Before any supporting units have time to respond I already have lost 1-2 soldiers. The "ambushes" are fast and almost always I kill the shooters fast but the first couple of seconds already cost me a soldier or two. This happens almost every time crossing a street ext. (read:all the time) so after even a small town fight I could lose easily 50-75% of my infantry. (I rarely lose my tanks) I almost always have eyes on the buildings the enemy opens fire from but I rarely manage to spot them before they open fire to my exposed units. So how do I advance in a city without getting ambushed this often while advancing? My current ideas and tactics: - I try to have a another unit always covering when I move a unit from a building to a building. (for example IFV and its infantry squat working together) - Have MBT or IFV over looking the city ready to fire on hostile buildings. (and also fire controllers for arty ext.) - Move slow and conservatively My first post here, so hello to everybody.
