Name: Roger McAllen

Age: 32

Rank: Corporal

Operational Area: Special commando for acts of sabotage in crisis areas

After years of negotiation the 12 leading military powers agree to halve
the size of their armies and to either demolish or convert bases that
are no longer in use. In spite of initial mistrust the project makes
good progress and after a week numerous bunkers, launch ramps and other
military bases are already prepared for conversion. Key positions are
still under heavy military guard in case of incidents.

However numerous US bases are suddenly lost to the extensive attacks of
an unknown organisation. One of these bases is a launching ramp. Troops
stationed in the vicinity attempt to retake it but fail.

The WOLF-Organisation (Worldwide Organized Liberation Front) claims
responsibility and threatens to attack nearby towns using the long-range
missiles they have in their power if the US Army attempts further
retaliation. The motives of this organization are unclear.

A new attempt at retaliation fails and the WOLF-Organisation carries out
its threat on neighbouring towns, an attack causing 327 deaths and many
more wounded. The situation escalates.. A week later, after
negotiations have broken down, the US government decides to make use of
the NASF (National Antiterrorist Strike Force) in order to weaken the
opponent from within by means of specially targeted acts of sabotage.
And so it begins

After five successful training years with the NASF, Roger McAllen begins
his first mission behind enemy lines. He and his highly specialized
team are only given minimal information before carrying out their task.
Further details are supplied later by radio contact. After a short
briefing the troops are deployed using transport helicopters to an area
about 20 km south of the launching ramp base. Their first objective is
to find and destroy an artillery vehicle in the ruins of the city. The
second objective is to blow up a damn as a distraction whilst they
infiltrate the launch base. Once there, they are to defuse the
missiles, which constitute the basis of the WOLF-Organisation’s threat.

For those having trouble with the controls resetting when a new map is loaded:

I copied the config.cfg file from the valve folder and placed it into the Operation:Black Thunder folder and replaced the already existing .cfg file.

That fixed the problem for me. :)

This is a realism based modification, that gives us all new real world toys. Shotgun even has a damage boost and no alt fire. We basically are a special forces commando. We go through essentially a hydro electric plant in the dam, as well as a underground complex where are target airplane is. We get decent equipment, with attachable silencer to our mp5 which is really my style.

+Realistic looking areas
+Realistic combat, punctuated by some great set pieces.
+Daring chase scene in the end leaves us with a great climax
+Quite long going onto the 40 minute mark

-no puzzles unless you count having to place c4 on vehicles as puzzles
-your team mates die a bit to easy in the beginning part and it was a bit unfair to strip our weapons when we fall into the water
-it ends

One of those mods that dared to be different, and managed to make succeed in being fun & new.
