FOB PRICE

8B3D658611C3954BDD3AAA13DC305BE36B613187

 

Story:

In March 2008 czech contingent with my father  went to Afghanistan to help other states here in the most dangerous part of the world to fight against Taliban fighters. For the time spent at FOB Price My dad took some photos that I would like to share with you.

 

History:

The base used to be occupied by both British and Danish troops; however, on 22 July 2013 the Danes left, having used FOB/MOB Price since 2007, so now the base is used by mainly the British under Operation Herrick (OP H).

Despite the drawdown of British troops this base has been expanded by 21 Engineer Regiment during November 2012.

 

Description:

As you can see from the title will be a FOB Price southeast of Gereshk. I will draw from photos in 2008 that got out of Afghanistan. I hope that next year i will make a map around the Gereshk town and paste there FOB Price like static base. I built some buildings in Gereshk like hospital, police station and few afghan ouposts along the main road. In FOB Price will be about 800 metres long runway with two ramps for C17 and C130.

 

Know issue:

Red containers will be repaint its just basic layout of them for me.

 

Pictures from A3 and from reality:

The only thing is: will there be enough flat space on a map to put it there?

Plus, will you just release the FOB like that, or will you also add ambient life with soldiers around and animations?

Will you also add custom pictures (for board for examples) or not?

1. I really dont know beacuse i still dont begin to make a map around Gereshk town.

2. Good question, i will release FOB Price on Armaholic.com, no there will not be any life or animations it just base without life like my all templates.

3. Yeah there are many pictures like Guardtent, flags, speed limit, oneway sign etc.

You know to be honest I couldn't tell you.  Our main was on the Marine side of Bastion (Leatherneck), but we'd rotate platoons to a SF compound with in Price for a few weeks at a time.  

I remember it being referred to as Camp Price.  I'd say FOB though.  Looked just like those photo's you put up, same time I was there 09'.

Hi. For a long time some little work on FOB Price. The canteen is remake inspirated from Rasman Joint Use Airfield from Marshall300. The bunker is remake too from Camp Fortress from Ei8ght.  :)

Question--what is the intended usage of this?

 

I already know I'll spawn it in the VR world and take some of the watchtowers to use on Takistan. But is there a specific map this entire base is supposed to be situated in?

Seeing all this work, all I can say is, "I love you", lol. I use to do stuff like this in Armed Assault and ArmA 2. Building stuff like this is a lot of fun. I especially am a fan of your attention to details. Not plopped down things randomly for the sake of it, plus filling empty spaces with objects to make things appear more alive. Nice to see others out there who enjoy making stuff like this as well. Awesome!
