Street Sweepers is the nineteenth and final scenario in the campaign Task Force Thunder. It was preceded by Point Blank. In this mission Task Force Thunder gathers to smack the remnants of Syrian resistance in Hims.
The briefing here is like it is in Shock Force 2, the upgraded version of the original game.
0500 JUNE 30, 2008
US forces are concentrating on the outskirts and downtown areas of Hims to the north and north east. The nearby highway junction is the major highway artery between Hims and Damascus, as well as the primary west to east route from the coast to Hims. OBJ Thor is adjacent to that highway junction. We are to seize and hold OBJ Thor and the surrounding area to cut off any fleeing Syrian forces from the city of Hims and to prevent the approach of reinforcements from the south.
The assault on downtown Hims begins in hours, so time is limited: we have been ordered to complete the mission in the next two hours. This will require the maximum display of force. Stay strong, this is Task Force Thunder's last step in the long journey down Route Lightning.
Capture the marked objectives in order to seal Hims off once and for all.
OBJ Thor has been cleared for destruction if you find it absolutely necessary. The hospital is NOT TO BE DAMAGED, however it must be captured because foreign fighters are using it as a defensive position.
Avoid unnecessary damage to civilian structures.
All of Task Force Thunder is being committed to this mission. The task force is currently flanking the target, and will arrive in waves as marked on your tactical map. The battalion scout platoon and other HQ elements have already set up an OP near the target. You have priority fires from a battery of 155mm howitzers, and a pair of AH-64D Apache Longbows.
The area near OBJ Thor is believed to be only lightly defended by Syrian infantry. The surrounding urban area is known to contain irregular forces from the al-Nour Army (militia), which is based from the mosque at OBJ Thor.
Using maximum speed and violence of action, clear and secure OBJ Thor and the other marked objectives. You know the drill by now. Get the job done, and we can rest.
RULES OF ENGAGEMENT: Restricted. Civilians are present! Use high caution in targeting the following buildings with heavy weapons:
- Any buildings that appear to be residential
- You are cleared to level OBJ Thor, but only if you have to.
- Occupy Objective Thor
- Occupy Hospital
- Occupy Construction Site
- Occupy Museum
- Destroy Enemy Forces
Tips for the scenario
