In this mission you will assume the role of CO 2nd Battalion, 1st Regiment, First Special Service Force tasked with neutralizing the defences of Port Cros comprising mostly of four forts constructed between the middle ages and the Napoleonic era.
The map reflects the real ground but the forces involved are not exactly those used on the day so the 15-inch guns of HMS Ramillies which finally induced the Germans to surrender are not in this scenario. You will have to achieve your mission much more quickly than the original attackers but rest assured that you have more than enough time to complete this mission.
