Hi guys.
There is a little bit news about planing missions.
First mission is gonna be tank battle for Kurozveki. Most of players became a member of tank crew.


Second one:  blue side defending village, red side has to capture it. More infantry mission, but tanks and guns present.


If you new on our server please read this:
Features of our server:
Realism. We strive to create an atmosphere of actual combat during the WW2, so the imposed restrictions:
- no player position indication on the map.
- one life, no respawn.
- realistic communication between the players: no chat, you can hear only players near you or use radio
- death reports, 3rd person view etc disabled
Fair play and respect for all the players.
- The use of bugs, cheats, trainers, codes in any form is prohibited
- insults, flame, trolling not allowed
- Ban for intentional TeamKills
Discipline, organization.
- All players will be divided into groups, which will manage the commanders.
- Participants should follow the instructions of the group commander.

First you should enter TS-server Flashpoint.ru:9988 (password 2010) and choose subchanel PVP_Tushino, "красные" for red side or "синие" for blue side. Ask password for the game and enter ARMA2.ru server. The upper slot is usually for side commander (KC), he arrange all side players for slots and choose group commanders (KO). When everybody ready, admin start the mission.

You'll see the map and have few minutes for reading. All players have to read this "brieafing" (situation, win/loose conditions etc)!
After that mission will load, and you'll got new information (intelligence data)! Read it and press "M" for put your map away. TS-plugin now turned on (TS channel switch automatically) and you'll hear only voises near you. Chat turned off.
Before the military action both sides has time for making decisions (usually 5..10 min, you see countdown on the left screen side). For this time all soldiers can't move far away, can't use/take/drop weapons, shooting is useless! Commanders (KCs and KOs) can move, they have this time for brieafing: tactics discussion, get instruction, set radio channels etc.

Only after brieafing the main active part of mission is begin. Now you can shoot, drive, die etc. Usually from this point private soldiers don't have map anymore (like in real life), so they shouldn't lose the group leader (KO), follow all his instructions.
For communication between groups we use radio (usually only 1 for group), it opens by pressing "O". If you open radio you can turn it on/off and change your channel (from 1 to 6) by mouse clicking. You can left (minimize) radio interface by press "Esc". If the radio is turned on, you can press and hold keyboard button with number (from 1 to 6) for transmission on respective channels.
Inside the group you just communicating by voise. Don't forget - enemy can hear you. Press "TAB" for change volume level (whisper/normal/loud).

All our missions usually has time limit (30..90 min), you can see time left by pressing "M". If any player died, no one get any reports about it, no matter friend him or foe. After death you go to spectator mode and TS-plugin automatically send you back to TS-channel you been before. Dead players can spectate combat, awaiting for the next mission.

All groups and players are welcome.

Looks like I wont be there after all .

Meeting up with a group of old friends for the night. 

Playing on this server is really great, and I would urge any of you who has an interest in Iron front to give this event a go. Last time they got the timings wrong so not many people turned up, but the people that did still had fun!

I've played a few games with them, their missions are great, the Team Speak system is brilliant, and following orders without a map is a unique experience.

Play it!

Thanks for advertising sent to 6PDP/Veterani group. I found yeastrday Your information. As Veterani.pl leader and 6PDP mission maker I tried to find in short time few members of other Polish IronFront funs to join this mission to start cooperate wider in future. Due to holidays most of our people are far of own computers now, so we will be little outnamberd today.



We made Kursk coop battle on ARMA2 with I44 mod before and we are very interesting to join any good made history projects especialy so epic tank battles like KURSK.

We prepeared close history made STASZÓW and LISÓW events (2nd after KURSK biggest tank battle with 1st IS-2 and King Tiger meeting on Polish soil as Poland Liberation mission series):




and we want to advertise You to play it together on our 100 slot server too. Problem is we have no ACRE similar radio system in IronFornt implemented. We want Your help to do it and play together in real sound enviroment conditions.  

As history realy battlefiled allies with commanders speaking in russian language too we want to join Red Army group in this mision. :-)     
Till now we have only 7 memebers on today mission list (3 tank crew).

Ready to duty:

1. PolshFactor
2. Novee 
3. Zeus
4. Krzek
5. As
6. GadgeTTo
7. Agrypa

PolishFactor, hi!
Im very glad to hear this and we wait you on our game today!

About our missions I should say unfortuanatelly they not always very historical accurate. It depends on mission autor.
We have nothing against historical accuracy  but sometimes new idea, good side balance, new intresting locations etc more important for us.

Mission "Deathtrap" is just a tank mission on Kurozveki location, but if we have good imagination we'll feel ourselfs like on "Kurskim Łuku" 
Btw, I like you video! 

Concerning using radio&sounds sistem you should speak with our server admin and lider of our project Greez. He has account on this forum too.
Playing together is a great idea. Im sure most of our guys ready to be guests on your server if your games type close to HardMode games type. Anyway I suppose we can use arma2.ru server (up to 70 slots) for events. Do you have a good ping with it?

small technical information: only for first mission slots will be hided!
It will looks like:
1. Side commander
2. soldier
3. soldier
4. soldier
... 
All this made for one reason - "fog of war" - one side will not know how many tanks, guns etc have opposing side.
Side commanders will have a list of real slots accordance, and will arrange players for slots.

We like history mission with real units and commanders names, with 1:10 scale due to best ready scenarios has been written by real life only. We want to educate young polish people about true of WW2 history. We want to prevent real  heros names and their unvelivable brave actions to be forgoten. We understand simply fact that there are many limitation in IronFornt erngine so we have to broke some hitory facts to save balance of game too. As You saw in our Kursk we false used T34/85 which was not present on real battlefiled at this time. Due to IF44 armor and penetration mistakes sending only T34/76 agaist Tigers and Panthers is very bad idea... So we used not existed better tank to save balance and gave any chance to longer play. :-) 

Just as You said  Most important for any good playing is a balance, and interesting scenario created by genius mission maker. I am sure we will have all today :-) 

As Veterans and true history lovers we always prefer close reality hard level of playing. To do it on our server too we will need ACRE ARMA2 similar system working in this game. I hope Your admin will help us to resolve tragic IronFornt communication sound system problem for ever and will give us chance to play more often together on our sever too. We can gave all players up to 200 slots with 300 Mbps banwith. Our ping to Your server is 62 so this should be enough to play.  Of course we will all test today personally. 

We will join You 19.20 Warasow/Berlin time to do a test of IronFront ACRE similar sound system to start without any problem ourl game.  

See You brather!

Hi guys!

My oppinion last event went very well! German side won tank battle and holded village. Two KT been hited in engine, but we found maintenance truck and repair our tanks. There was about 20x20 players.
Next mission was not "Local engagement" due to technical problem (turns out we had it only for 35 slots). So we played mission "Hammer" - blue side hold defend on the height, red side prepare tank attack on it.
German "special forces"  meet Russians long before frontline, so for defenders on the height mission turns into the loooong waiting. And at the end, when defenders lost watchfulness, last Polish partizan Zeus came and kill all of them! 
Red side won!
Thanks for all participants!
Special thank for PolishFactor and all Polish friends! Look forward to our next games together!

My opinion this was GG too! Little technical problems for my teamates but battle had many epic moments. We stay to the end and use Is-2 with damaged turret in SU8/85 shoot style making a hell  around king Tiger in time of repairing hiding deep in forest. Then we tried to kill Tiger I  but game ended....

An our 6PDP/Veteran one of the best scout was sent to end 2nd mission with success.  It started with big looses in first hill... Good hided german sniper made most of my team dead. He was killed finally by Beba from T34/76. As a joke ZEUS took this sniper weapon and kill thier commander with few soldier during kind of breafing and fhished their last tiger wth PZSHK he tool from earlier killed soldier. Changing nearly 100% cloose failure into spectacular win in such epic style was best end we
expected.  

This game was our 1st kind of training. We will join You with pleasure in any battle but with more our soldiers. 

Once more big thanks for epic moments You gave us and our ZEUS tactics glory!

I was this KingTiger gunner . Our driver got a truck, but you burn it and kill him. But our commander got second truck, we repair tank and hopfully retreat to the village!
anyway, your hiding technic was good

Our elevation gun system and turret movement was complitely destroyed so we have to use different elevation of terrain to aim...

I gave him personaly my respect for this action. Especially that the same sniper weapon which made us so many died soldiers was used to do the same. :-) Thats all ZEUS. He always looking for a style....

All depent on people holidays plans. You know Mayorka and Ibiza is now closer most of my soldiers hearts then dark room with computer... :-)  

Are You ARMA2 with Invasion44 funs mod too? Most of Veterans and cloase friendly groups (70 persons) prefer to use ARMA2 due to mod open structure of this game. We are using IF44 mainly to made history Poland Liberation scenarios due to unique our country maps...
