After Action Report: Changing History: Battle for the Olympus Pass
Curtis Szmania gets into the boots of an infantryman, crews a tank, and flies a fighter plane to change history in the Battle for the Olympus Pass in the Forgotten Hope 2 mod for Battlefield 2.
Using Forgotten Hope 2 mod for Battlefield 2, I will be changing history today reversing the battle for Olympus Pass. The battle occurred from 14-16 April 1941 and was a German victory. I will be playing as the New Zealanders in the scenario offered in the mod called “Mount Olympus.” There are a total of 32 players on this map, 16 Allies and 16 Axis. I will be playing singleplayer attempting to retain or capture the flags on the map. There is a point system; each side has a number of points, the first to “0” loses. The more flags held, the faster your enemy’s points will dissipate. As an infantryman, tank commander, and a pilot let’s see how I changed history. Enjoy!
