Mission 9 - A Courtesy Call Date: Oct 20 1942 Place: Bab el Qattara
Historic Background: October 20, 1942. In El Alamein, a single question remains in everybody's mind: Why does not Montgomery order the attack yet? Meanwhile, the English general builds up an overwhelming superiority in men and equipment before starting the offensive.
Objectives: In order to disconcert Rommel's troops before the attack, you will be taken across the line of mine fields in Bab el Qattara to the camp of the 21st Panzer Division. There you will await dawn, destroy as many objectives as you can, and then disappear.
Tactical Advice: By dawn, you should be stationed near the camp. Beware of these Panzers. They are engaged and ready to act against you. You will destroy the detection equipment, the weapons store, the command post, and the bunker. Then a vehicle will pick you up from the south. Simple, isn't it?... Good luck!
