Kinda of a ARR of my Jagged Alliance Back in Action playthrough with Combat Evolved mod.
So I was given the task of liberating Arulco from a ruthless dictator
woman (nice twist there, right?) and I thought to "myself why not".
Big screens ahead (16800x1050)Meet the team
From my budget of 40,000$ I hired Fox, or I as I call her the ex-nurse-turned-pornstar-turned-action-hero.
You can see why by that picture. At least she's a cheap medic to keep my mercenaries on their feet. She's a good medic and can hide pretty well
and in a few levels I guess she'll be able to actually shoot something from a far.
So this guy is Mr. by the book and Mr. popularity from A.I.M. Well he ain't a bad shot as it is and quite cheap so I supposed that's good.
He's also good at night ops which is good because my first mission is set during the night!The Mission
My first step in this campaign is to liberate a small airport so that a supply line from the outside of Arulco is possible.
The air field has a few buildings that were once used as barracks an hangar, and air strip (obviously) an office building and a store room.The Plan
Since at the start of the game my mercs have little ammo I'll try to scavenge what I can from the three barracks in the southeast working my way to the hangar, neutralizing any opposing forces and move towards the office building near the air strip. That's the plan at least if it survives enemy encounter that remains to be seen.
How it went
Yes the arrows were drawn by me!!
The team finds an opening in the fence near the LZ, neutralizing the first baddie rather quickly. Of note the outfitting of my team.
The team made their way towards the first barrack without any problem and actually found some ammo.
The second barrack was actually a waste of time as nothing of value was found, so the team pushes towards, what I initially thought was a third barrack, the canteen. Expecting trouble, since the troops garrison in the airfield were starving seeing how skinny their were, Fox quickly heals Grunty right under a door arch. Apparently she read somewhere that Arulco was very affected by earthquakes.
Fox hears some noises coming from the door that leads to the hanger, and suspecting enemy activity, the team quickly repositions.
Fox, as a woman should, goes behind the counter in the kitchen and Grunty get's out in order to flank the enemy.
Coming in range the unsuspecting enemy get's greeted by a headshot from Grunty killing him instantly.
After scavenging some more ammo the team prepares to attack the hangar. As Grunty spots an enemy in the alley behind the hangar and proceeds to neutralize
the threat Fox covers him from the doorway of the canteen and it proves to be a good idea, since another enemy comes from the hangar and gets neutralized.
Meanwhile Grunty does his job as well.
Moving towards the entrance of the hangar the last enemy militia tries to charge Grunty with a rusty machete but gets stopped by Fox.
With the hangar cleared the team moves towards the office building without resistance, and neutralizes the single militia inside. Looting some uniforms and a Kevlar vest for Grunty.
The stock room was at first sight badly protected by what it appeared to be just one militia armed with a shotgun. Grunt was to sneak close enough to ensure a kill with headshot to avoid any injures to the Innocent bystander.
But the situation escalated. As Fox moved up towards the truck to provide cover and additional firepower, she spots another militia coming Grunty's way.
Grunty decides to keep carrying the original plan but change the target to the newly met militia. He quickly dispatches him with a few shots from his Silenced HKMP5.
Grunty gets in position to neutralize the shotgun armed militia but unable to land an headshot without compromising the life of the bystander he shoots a few round to the torso of the enemy. And again the situation that seemed under control takes another twist, another militia appears from behind Grunty , right into Fox's range.
With the "shotgunner" neutralized Grunty turns towards the militia behind him just to seeing him offed by Fox. The militia was still able to take a shot a .357 round at Fox, but luckily the shot was astray.
With entrance to the store room cleared at least an enemy still remained unattended. As soon as the team readies to breach the store room, the last militia comes running, no doubt hearing the last shot form his companion.
Unaware of the situation he was getting in to, Grunty and Fox team up to deal with the last of "The Queens" forces.
After finishing that last militia, the team finishes searching the whole sector and spends some hard earned money in some new equipment.
Here's their new look.
And that's that.
Sorry for the wall of screens. Hope you guys like it.
