by Leto on Nov 05, 2018 at 10:35 PM}
This is an account of the OPFOR side of things from this event.

OPFOR Team: Rudolf (OPFOR33), Pinto (OPFOR77), Leto (OPFOR42)

BLUFOR Team: Legoboy, 5H1N0B1, J-Mav16, Kokos34, Raider1, Richard, MAVERICK, Talons, Tridson, venom.

Let me know if I forgot some. Also know that for a couple of hours late US evenings Pinto and Leto was flying BLUFOR.

As most of you noticed, the OPFOR team was helped by AI aircraft/ships/SAMs/trucks/depots. So It was to a large effect OPRFs first coop event.

Another new technology was fielded during event: A ground based intercept control, currently linked only to those who flew mig21. Basically a ground based AWACS.

BLUFOR Base: ENBO
OPFOR Base: ENTC

The event lasted 2 days at 3/4 Nov. 2018 on OPRF mpserver.

Some notable OPFOR events: (notice that most of the time there was fighters in the air plus what happened in these events)
  • Missile frigate close to ENBO
  • Push from fighters on ENBO
  • Intel gathering ship cloaked as rescue ship at same location as the sunk missile-frigate.
  • SAM systems put up at ENTC
  • Logistics problems, fighters fly with reduced ammo.
  • Another SAM and a depot up at ENTC
  • 3 frigates some 250 NM SW of ENBO, protected by patroling fighters, just outside Norwegian airspace.
  • The opfor carrier that has been the base for the ship patrol fighters, is withdrawing. From now on all opfor fighters will take-off from ENTC.
  • A convoy of trucks full of spetnatz heading from ENTC to ENBO
  • ENTC light protected, no sam, but a couple of depots
  • During the blufor bombing raids the fighters were kept in hangars.
  • Some fighters hit while getting ready on ENTC runway.
  • Yet another SAM active at ENTC
  • BLufor team get GCI support for their mig21 fighters.
  • 2 depots up at ENTC with a SAM. ANother SAM south of ENTC, and fighters in the sky as always.
  • A fleet of 2 missile-frigates and 1 frigate is stationed SW of ENBO some hundreds NM out. Protected with patroling fighters.
  • BLUFOR awacs get shot down by one of our fighters.
  • A ship has arrived near ENTC, and a depot with supplies has been built. ANd fighter being fueled up on runway.
  • Fighter push on ENBO
  • 3 trucks with special forces heading for ENBO.
  • 2 depots up at ENTC with fighters getting fueled on runway.

Approx stats for OPFOR loses: 8 ships sunk, 4 trucks destroyed, 7+ SAMs destroyed, around 50+ fighters splashed, around 10 depots destroyed.

I had lots of fun.

I will leave it to others to tell the BLUFOR story. Here is some images:

This was my first big event, it was a blast! Didn't get a lot of kills and I flew only at nighttime, so I didn't see a thing, but I enjoyed every second of it. Looking forward to the next event
