Historical Missions - Panama
Relive historical missions modeled after actual events in the thick jungles of Central America, the first combat test of the Apache.
0800 Hours: Collect jungle survival gear, perform flight check on Apache and report to Hsitorical Simulator for further details
Mission Briefing: You are participating in a joint-force military operation, code-named Operation Just Cause. Goal is to remove General Manuel Noriega (head of the Panamanian Defense Force) from power.
Mission Objective: Employ "nap-of-the-earth" flight and test the Apache's combat capabilities. Eliminate Noriega's forces at all costs.
Historical Missions - Iraq
Fly the Mother of All Battles, precisely recreated through historical missions in the parched deserts of Iraq and Kuwait.
0200 Hours: Collect desert survival gear and report to Historical Simulator
Mission Briefing: You, in your Apache, launch the first strike of Operation Desert Storm and accompany seven gunships into Iraqi airspace. Engage and destroy critical radar installations, command posts, generators and antennae.
At 0249, Allied aircraft will pass undetected through this blind corridor and conduct heavy air strikes against Baghdad.
Mission Objective: Use infrared imaging and laser designators to lock onto targets and eliminate Iraqi communication points with Hellfire missiles.
The AH-64D Longbow enters service in 1997. Fly two near-future campaigns, from the first strike through conclusion of hostilities.
This scenario is based upon de-classified information from Jane's intelligence sources and is set among thousands of kilometers of actual satellite-generated terrain.
0900 Hours: Report to Campaign Building for unit assignment and tour of duty instructions.
Mission Briefing: Russian leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky has initiated expansion efforts into the Baltics. Disputes over ownership of military bases in the former republics have facilitated scattered conflicts over the last month. Hostilities are particulary intense in Ukraine, where Russian forces have initiated brute force against local military units.
Mission Objective: Assist Ukrainian Army as needed. High-risk tasks may include scout missions, pilot pickups, POW rescue efforts, and attacks on radar installations and incoming tank columns.
Straight from today's headlines, take the Longbow to war in the world's latest flash point.
1100 Hours: Depart for staging area in South Korea.
Mission Briefing: Tensions between North and South Korea have erupted in disputes along the de-militarized zone between the two countries. Last week, a damaged North Korean submarine - presumably reconnaissance - ran aground in South Korea. A captured survivor revealed detailed North Korean plans for a full-scale invasion against South Korea. Both the U.S. and South Korean presidents have authorized U.S. support.
Mission Objective: Hunt down artillery spotters and protect U.S. ground units. Utilize mountain and jungle terrain in your approach to minimize exposure.
