[SP/@] DIH_Operacao Mar Verde - Operation Green Sea (RWO)

Recommended Posts

Hi gents,

I'm back with another controversial mission release, based on real facts.

This time we go back in the 70's, during the Portugese african wars known as liberation wars, or oversea wars (depends on the point of view).


RWO - DIH Operation Mar Verde


By CimaleX DIH Guerra do Ultramar and Mig 15 addons

Made with ArmA II v1.62 and @CBA, ACE_SM as optional

Based on real facts happened during the Portugese "Guerra do Ultramar"

Required AddOns:

DIH_Africa (Guerra do Ultramar mod), @CBA, Mig15 addon, @ACEX_SM (optional)

The story:

November 1970, equatorial Africa: Portugal commenced Operacao Mar Verde or Operation Green Sea on 22 November 1970.

This seaborne invasion of Conakry, conducted under cover of darkness, sought to overthrow Toure', a staunch PAIGC ally, to capture the leader of the PAIGC, Amilcar Cabral, and to cut off supply lines to PAIGC insurgents.

Guinea very actively supported the nationalist forces attempting to end Portuguese colonial rule in adjacent Guinea-Bissau, from their first appearance in the early 1960s until their ultimate success.

The only significant nationalist organization, the African Party for the Independence of Guinea-Bissau and the Cape Verde Islands (Partido Africano da Independencia da Guine' e do Cabo-Verde—PAIGC), had maintained its headquarters in Conakry and its rear area bases in Guinea close to the border with the Portuguese colony.

The leader and major force of the PAIGC until 1972 was Amilcar Cabral.

Cabral's residence in Conakry was close to that of President Toure', and the two leaders espoused a similar ideology on domestic and international affairs.

Portugese Guinea HQ (General-Governor Spinola) dediced to launch an articulated and hazardous plan against Conakry, the goal is to infiltrate during night into guinean/PAIGC controlled territory in the capital of Guinea Conakry, several squads of portugese marines and commandos of five men each, onboard some Zodiac/Zebro rafts.

Portugese task is to infiltrate the city and strike the main guinean armed forces infrastructures with the aim of destroy as much equipment as possible, especially the guinean/PAIGC naval assets (Komar and PT-6 patrol boats) vehicles and light APCs (held inside a Hangar close the piers) the headquarters of the Guinea Conakry army (Camp Samory) and the Republican Guard.

Other important target during the mission is to find and assassinate or capture the leader of the PAIGC, Amilcar Cabral and Guinea president Sekou Toure', that might be in the presidential compound, while a secondary but relevant target is the hangar at the airport, where we suspect some Mig-17s are held and kept airworthy with the support of cuban/soviet advisors.

This is a great, but difficult mission. It can be recommended to other players, and I will not spoil the whole story, but point out the single design oversight I found: Auto-destruction of enemy assets is very dangerous to the player. I would have preferred a box of satchels stashed neatly close by.

Sounds great. I'll be testing it this weekend. I'll report back later. BTW any chance that a COOP version could be made?
