CMSF 2 Daraya Tank Raid

About The Scenario
This is one for the modern ‘Tread heads’ amongst you!

This is a revised version updating the orginal to CMSF2, so you will need the base game CMSF2 to play this. Revised AI Plan using triggers; tweaked map using new CMSF terrain feautures. This is version 2 which has a slightly reduced mission time based on player feedback.

The actual scenario is very loosely based on events in Daraya, a suburb of Damascus where rebels from the Free Syrian Army (FSA) have attempted to create a stronghold near Damascus centre. In August 2012, the Syrian Army defeated the rebel forces and took control of the town. After the failed rebel offensive in late July 2012 ,the Syrian army started a campaign against rebels in the Damascus suburb.

This, the 2nd Battle of Darayya, is the ongoing battle between the Syrian Army and the rebels in the Damascus suburbs of Darayya. In mid-December when the Army intensified their attacks with heavy shelling and Tanks raids into the city.

This scenario depicts an armoured raid, typical of the tactics used by the Syrian Army to seize control of Daraya. You can view the video which shows these raids using footage (often filmed whilst under fire) shot by the rebels ‘Syria – Men versus Tanks in Daraya – The Powerful T-72 Raids’

So your scenario looks like the scenes in the above film I’d suggest modding your game using the following excellent mods:

Longleft Flank’s Shot up Building;
Pete Wenman’s ‘Squalor’ mod;
Pete Wenman’s BlackSea favour objects for CMSF2

Map and Scenario Size
This is a fairly small map although it’s very built up.
Map Size: 720m x 512m

Forces: Syrian Republican Guard armour Vs Syrian rebels (combatants and fighters)

Best Played As
Can be played RT or WEGO. This is best played Blue Vs Red AI or H2H only.

There are two RED AI Plans.

If playing H2H it is recommended the more experienced player takes the RED side.

The scenario is NOT playable as Red VS Blue AI.


Many thanks to Buzz, Erwin and Snake Eye at the BFC forum who played through the early Blue Vs Red versions and provided a lot of feedback. Thanks to Lethaface and Sublime who played this H2H and provided excellent feedback in this regard. Thanks also to Slysniper who took the SF2 version for a spin and provided some useful feedback. Cheers Guys!

  1. Outstanding street fight. I like it a lot. However, I could not keep 70 percet of my forces in the game (Need to try again). Tough mission indeed. Thanks for doing this one.

  2. Aye that’s because the dropbox folder is no longer active. I’d thought it might be up on CMMODS III by now. Worth asking over at the BFC forum as I’ve seen updated versions being used by players.
