This scenario is a simulation and does not have any political message.

Marines in the Storm_downsized 1.1 by Lusik (modified by Rinix)

February 24th 1991

The last weeks have been damp and cold. It's not exactly  the kind of weather you expected in  the Middle East. We've been here since September and the only thing we have fought with so far is boredom. We have been away from our families, our friends and our lives for too long. Last month on the 17th, the air offensive started. From what we have seen on CNN, Saddam took a heavy pounding. But on the ground it's been quiet.. almost. At the end of last month, Saddam's forces made an attempt to take the Saudi town of Al-Khafji.  Two of our recon units were trapped in the city for a couple of days, but we let the Saudis liberate their homeland a few days after. We lost two LAVs due to friendly fire.

You are part of Task Force Ripper, 2nd Marine Tank Battalion, 2nd Marine division. Our tanks have been mixed up with LAVs (NZLAV) to give you more flexibility. Our long wait has finally come to an end. Two days ago, President Bush rejected the Soviet peace plan and demanded Iraq begin withdrawal from Kuwait by noon Feb. 23 to avoid a ground war. A Iraqi information official branded U.S. position a shameful ultimatum and set one-sixth of Kuwait's 950 oil wells ablaze. Today, it's time to cross the border and liberate the country.

Your mission is to advance through the minefield and reach PL Midway. Once reached, you will prepare a hasty defence and wait for the the rest of the Task Force to advance through the breach. Our ultimate goal is Al Jaber airbase located near Kuwait City.

Iraqi forces have been under relentless attacks since January 17th, and are expected to be severely weakened. According to our S2 data, we are facing XX Corps 14th Infantry Division, which is expected to be reinforced by the nearby 5th Mechanised Division. Their equipment is made of older Russian designs, T-55s and BMP-1. The enemy had several months to prepare for a defence and is expected to fight from well prepared positions. Their artillery was mostly destroyed during the air campaign but in spite of this we are fighting the 3rd largest army in the world, battle-hardened during its recent war with Iran.

Terrain ahead is mostly flat like a pool table and I have nothing more to tell you about it. . February has been rainy and this day is expected to be no different. Furthermore, Iraqi forces set several oil wells on fire which limited visibility to approximately 1000 m. A big advantage of this is that their forces do not have thermal sights and can't see shit in these conditions. The disadvantage is plainly obvious: our aviation assets have very limited chance to support our advice.

We are a understrength C Company named Task Force Ripper, made of the following units:

1 platoon of M-60A3s (TTS)
1 section of LAV-25s (NZLAV)
1x M113 MICLIC
1x M9 Combat Engineering Vehicle (Wisent ARV)
1x M113 Eng
1x M113 Medic
2x Supply Truck

Other friendly units will advance along the front so make sure that you have a positive ID before you open fire.

1x Smoke Screen to cover breaching operation. (Trigger 1)
1x off map artillery battery HE, ICM
1x battery of MLRS with ICM

We may have our Cobras for support but it is rather unlikely that they will be able to fly in these weather conditions.

There are no enemy map updates.
