Join Reality Gaming as we embark on 4 weeks on dedicated story driven gameplay within our 4th official deployment, Death Valley.
D4 will see you take on the role of a soldier within the RG Task Force, deployed to Takistan on behalf of NATO.
Using our customised addon pack and exclusive RG content, we are embarking on a journey that will test your skill and resolve. This is what we have been training for these many months. Good Luck and come home safe.
Deaths, Revives and supplies and logged during these events. Veteran mode and 1st Person are enabled. This is hardcore milsim.
In the autumn of 2012 RG Forces were deployed to Takistan in order to locate the source of the enemy incursions into Afghanistan. At the time southern Takistan was undergoing many of the same problems that Afghanistan was facing, namely weak central and local political control with towns either run or largely influenced by a strong Taliban presence. Using the hesitancy of the weak Takistan government to allow what would be perceived as a foreign invasion, the Taliban were able to use the national border as a defensive screen to conduct operations of a large scale. This came to an end when it was discovered that chemical weaponry was being stockpiled. The taskforce were given permission to eradicate these weapons. The mission was successful, and shortly after RG were redeployed to another location.
In the year that followed the Taliban influence reduced. Hurt by the attacks in the local vicinity, and with the route into Afghanistan being compromised, most of the leaders relocated away. This resulted in the area being able to form a strong local government. With a mix of an increase in the national armed forces being deployed to the area alongside international aid money paying for a local militia, stability was swiftly restored to the area. Life was still brutal, but order and civilisation began to take hold in the area.
This all changed two months ago. The Taliban were back, and had a point to prove against the local forces. Four times in the space of 2 weeks there we explosive attacks on government buildings. The first two occurred within a matter of hours, as Police Stations in Chaman and Sakhe were partially destroyed. The third explosion was much larger, and targeted on one of the militia camps based in Jilavur, resulting in 18 casualties including the deaths of three South Africans and an Australian. The final attack, critically, came against a small hospital in Rasman, the heart of the local government. This resulted in the call for international assistance.
And that, soldier, is why we are back.
