The Mountains of Allah: Operation Scepter

The Mountains of Allah: Operation Scepter is a CMBS Campaign depicting a hypothetical incursion into Chechnya by Russian military forces to find and locate a Islamic Warlord named Abukhan Zakayen and his militant forces that have been launching attacks into the Russian homeland. In the campaign you are in command of elements of 58th Army stationed in the North Caucasus District. Your force consists of:

1 Bn 20th Guards Motor Rifle Brigade (Core Unit)
2 Bn 20th Guards Motor Rifle Brigade (Core Unit)
22nd Spetsnaz Brigade (Core Unit)
1 Bn 108th Guards AA SLT Regiment (Airborne VDV) (Core Unit)
2 Bn 108th Guards AA SLT Regiment (Airborne VDV) (Core Unit)

Other Units Featured During the Campaign:

19th Motor Rifle Brigade
33rd Mountain Recon Brigade

The Enemy Forces:

The Wolves of Islam: Commander Abukhan Zakayen
The Lecha (Falcon) Brigade
The Makkahl (Black Kite) Brigade
The Azyru (Eagle) Brigade

The campaign consists of 9 battles and features offensive, defensive and special operations missions. It takes place in January 2017 and features the excellent Winter Modification Mod designed by the WMT for CMRT but that works seemlessly in CMBS. I have included my own additional modifications of winter effects for all vehicles and troops in the campaign for immersiveness.

The Chechens are featured using Blimy’s excellent Seperatists Mod under the Ukranian Digital Cammo slot to give them a militant feel. I added some winter effects to them also for immersiveness.

The maps are all my creations with the exception of two heavily modified quick battle maps. Some are based on actual places and some are fictional.

The actions depicted here are all hypothetical, though they are based on some real world data.

In Chechen society many names and titles are based on their respect for nature and its wildlife. Thats why I used actual Chechen Muslim names for the miltary formations used in this campaign.

Be sure to read the Designer Notes at the Campaign beginning to understand the background that leads to the conflict. Its a bit lengthy but has some interesting real world data that leads into the storyline.

The Eagle and the Bear

The Eagle and the Bear is a narrative hypothetical campaign of a clash between NATO and Russian forces in the small Baltic country of Latvia. It is a campaign of modern war set in a “could happen” situation where you command a U.S. Combat Brigade through a 7 day struggle for control of the Baltics.

It is designed to be played from the blue side only. Some scenarios are large so it may be slow load times on some systems.

It features 11 scenarios, 9 which are playable based on the outcomes of specific battles. I’ve tried to include a fair number of combat situations from small infantry engagements, airlift operations, urban battles as well as large sprawling armor engagements.

You take the role of Colonel Mack Barnes, commanding officer of the 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team and your mission is to successfully take the brigade as well as other NATO forces through 7 days of modern combat. Below is a list of the scenarios and the campaign path:

Battle 1- Never Cry Wolf
(Win- The Water Dogs
(Lose- Campaign Over)

Battle 2- The Water Dogs
(Win- The Crossroads of Naudaskalns
(Lose- Campaign Over)

Battle 3- Crossroads at Naudaskalns
(Win- FOB Lancer
(Lose- Campaign Over)

Battle 4- FOB Lancer
(Win – Hill 289.7)
(Lose- The Bear at the Gates)

Battle 5- Hill 289.7
(Win- Operation Hammer)
(Lose- The Siege of Balvi)

Battle 6- The Bear at the Gates
(Win- Operation Hammer)
(Lose- Campaign Over)

Battle 7- The Siege of Balvi
(Win – Operation Eagle Strike
(Lose- Campaign Over)

Battle 8- Operation Hammer

(Lose- Campaign Over)

Battle 9- Operation Eagle Strike

Battle 10 – Turning the Tide

Here is a list of the combatants involved:

NATO:

Latvian 1st Infantry Brigade
Latvian 2nd Infantry Brigade
Polish 2nd Mechanized Battalion
Polish 1st Tank Battalion
Polish 6th Airborne Brigade
1st Stryker Combat Brigade Team
1st Calvary Regiment
3rd Armored Combat Brigade Team (Core Unit)

Soviet 20th Guards Army:

9th Guards Motor Rifle Brigade
5th Guards Motor rifle Brigade
27th Guards Motor Rifle Brigade
16th Spetsnaz Brigade
56th Airborne Brigade
100th Reconnaissance Brigade
6th Guards Tank Brigade
4th Guards Tank Brigade
1st Tank Brigade

(Special Note: Due to game limitations the Latvian forces were taken from the stock Ukrainian forces with standard camouflage. The Polish forces are Ukrainian forces with digital camouflage to distinguish them differently.

The Latvian military primarily uses western equipment so they have been equipped with humvee’s mostly. However I used MT-LBM’s as their APC’s. The Poles have the KTO-Wolverine APC which I used BTR-4E’s to simulate these as well as the PT-91 Twardy MBT which is simulated by the BM-Bulat MBT.)

There are a number of personalities besides Col. Barnes that you will meet as the campaign unfolds. Each will play a part.

As with my previous campaign I have included modtags and the needed files. However I do highly recommend Kieme’s outstanding CMBS mods to get the full immersion.

I am looking for a few playtesters to check it out and help me weed out any bugs I may have overlooked. If you are interested let me know and I will send you a dropbox link to the campaign to try out.

ScenarioHQ note: the below download is the latest one from original source, however it includes only the .cam actual campaign file and none of the extra mod files (sounds/graphics).
