Operation Longbow is a large scale dynamic multiplayer mission that allows clients to capture any airfield in the Battle Area,
clients can then spawn in aircraft from their newly captured bases.
Starting at opposite ends of the map, both coalitions are aiming to capture all ten airbases within the Battle Area
located along the Black Sea Coastline while preventing their opponent from doing the same.

The Target Airbases are Kutaisi, Senaki, Kobuleti, Sukhumi, Gudauta, Sochi
Min Vody, Nalchik, Mozdok and Beslan

(Click the links for more info on coalition ground unit positions at the start of each round!)

All ten Target Airbases are NEUTRAL the start of the mission however ground forces from each side

are locked in a stand-off against each other at opposing sides of the airfields.

Click on the links above in red to see the approximate location of each coalitions units.

The victor is the first side to successfully deploy troops on all ten Target Airbases
after eliminating the enemy guarding the position.

Inter asset cooperation is key as airbases can only be captured by the landing of ground troops by a friendly Helicopter.

Each coalition will require transport helicopter pilots standing by to land troops on the target airbases
once the enemy has been cleared. Helicopter pilots will also be required to deploy JTACS, MANPAD Teams and EWR Systems to the front lines!


SRS Server IP -

Simple Radio (SRS) is to be used as the primary mission communications tool while in the server,

however we request that clients also use the 104th Teamspeak server for mission planning and networking purposes.

Any client using a GCI slot MUST be on the 104th Teamspeak server.

TS3 Server IP - ts50.gameservers.com:9132 - Password = phoenix

We have set up a HELP CHANNEL to assist users in the set up of SRS on our Teamspeak server.
The channel is called "Help setting up Simple Radio" and it's channel description

has a step by step guide of how to install and set up SRS for use on the 104th.


The mission features an East vs West set up and is based on a fictional scenario that involves NATO Allies taking on Russia, Iran and China (Taiwan).

USA, UK, Sweden


Strikers: A-10A, A-10C, AJS-37, AV-8B

Helicopters: UH-1H, SA-342 Gazelle

Russian Pact
Russia, Iran, Republic of China (Taiwan)

Fighters: F-5E, Mig-21, Mig-29A, Mig-29S, Mirage 2000, SU-27, SU-33

Strikers: SU-25A, SU-25T

Helicopters: Mi-8, KA-50

Fighter Control Operators

Fighter Control services will be available to clients through the use of LotATC. To sign up to become a 104th Server Fighter Controller you need to post an application HERE

LotATC is now the only tool for Fighter Control, Combined Arms is no longer available on the server.

Airbase Assault Batteries

Each coalition has Assault Batteries for each Target Airbase.
At the start of the round both coalitions have an Assault Battery at EACH airbase! To capture an airbase you must eliminate the enemy Assault Battery and then land friendly troops on the airfield. Once this has been complete the friendly Airbase Assault Battery will move on to the airfield to protect it!

Red Assault Battery
8x T-90, 8x BMP3, 2x SA-15, 4x SA-13, 4x Shilka AAA

Blue Assault Battery
5x M1A1, 6x IFV, 1x Roland ADS, 4x Chaparel, 4x Vulcan AAA

Airbase Defence Upgrades

Once a coalition captures an airfield a heavy transport aircraft will be despatched with an Airbase Defence Upgrade package.
The package will arrive in two stages.
First is the Surface to Air Missile system followed by an Early Warning Radar system brought in on another aircraft after the first has safely landed.

If a coalition looses their first transport aircraft with the SAM package to the enemy a second aircraft will be despatched with another SAM system to try again. In this scenario the EWR system would NOT follow if the second aircraft makes it safely.
A coalition only receives the EWR upgrade if the FIRST transport aircraft makes it safely to the airbase!

Red Airbase Defence Upgrade Package
SA-11 & EWR

Blue Airbase Defence Upgrade Package
Hawk & EWR

Helicopter Operations

Helicopter pilots are the key to a coalitions success in the mission. Transport pilots are required to land friendly troops on to the Target Airbases once the enemy troops have been cleared.

Once the pilot has offloaded his troops the airbase will be secured for his coalition.

FARPS can also be captured along with airbases. See the below pictures for FARP locations and details.
FARPS in YELLOW are capturable by the enemy!
FARPS in BLACK are not capturable.

FARP Kavkaz : 44.15.37N - 42.13.28E : Grid KQ70 - 122.5

Rearming, Loading Troops and Crates

All helicopters spawn on the ground at FARPS not on them. To rearm your helicopter you must fly over and land on the helipad then make your request to the ground crew!

Cargo loading is done through the fantastic CTLD script by Ciribob in the RADIO MENU.

All troops and crates are loaded when at a friendly FARP, loading crates and troops will NOT work at an airbase.
You must consult the map and fly to your nearest FARP to pickup cargo.
Once you have troops on board you can drop them when it is safe to do so at the target airbase and it will be secured for your coalition.


Air to Air Weapon Restrictions

The AIM120C AMRAAM is now available.

Getting Started and Useful Information.

We are running Ciribob's excellent slot blocking script on the server. Available here

This means you cannot spawn at any airbase or FARP that your coalition does not control.

Aircraft at home bases start with the Number 1, eg "1 Tbilisi F-15C A1" aircraft at Capturable bases start with the Number 2, eg "2B Kutaisi F-15C A1".
If your coalition has not captured any bases in the mission you will only be able to spawn at a Home Base and select aircraft starting with 1.

Once your coalition has cleared the enemy troops from a base then captured it you can spawn in at that airbase by selecting the aircraft based there in the aircraft list.

FARP Phoenix activates for the BLUE side when KUTAISI has been captured and secured!

FARP Gali starts as a RED FARP at the start of the mission however RED cannot spawn there until they capture SUKHUMI!

All fixed wing aircraft start with 0% fuel at all capturable bases.
Fixed wing aircraft starting at Home Bases load with 100% fuel.


We do not have a website with a live mission map, clients must use the F-10 map to see what airbases belong to which coalition.

Press F-10 and click on the airbase you want the status of and it will tell you if it is RED, BLUE or NEUTRAL.

You can only spawn on an airbase that belongs to your coalition AND has had the enemy cleared from around it!

While efforts have been made to make the mission balanced it has NOT been the main priority.
No one from the 104th is claiming that this is a fair 50 / 50 fight or a realistic depiction of how a modern air battle would go.

Good stuff!
You guys solved some problems other servers' dynamic missions have or had.
What i like especially:
The "save zone"/airfields that you can not capture. This makes the mission playable even when one side has a big advantage in numbers and enables AWACS/Tankers.

Only one aircraft type on one side (exception with Su25T). This allows the 3rd gen and any other non radar platform to operate without too much trouble. Your setup leaves room for F14 and F/A 18!

Thank you for your time!

This operation looks cool!
But is it possible to switch Mirage 2000-Cs on blue side?
Cuz F-15s are the only air superiority fighters while red has so many options, kinda poor.
