You can read more in our forums here, and also at The Aggressors where there are some neat images and lots of information on the content of this upcoming mod, including the tanks, the weapons, the boonie hats, and the missions.
If you were one of the hundreds of fans to download the Assassinate mission we posted recently you'll know the basic idea already; undertake a new mission, and be automatically scored by the mission at the end, based on your performance. With these missions being coded by Alpha Squad Chavez, you can be sure of two things - this is not going to be a walk in the park, but it is going to be a whole lot of fun.
For full details Alpha Squad already have a SSL website here which explains it all clearly. Basically the missions will be held on the Alpha Squad server and the objectives published on their website. When you have a team assembled and ready to go, simply locate an Alpha Squad Official to supervise and record the mission score, set the time, and that's it. Play the mission at the pre-arranged time, and your score will be added to the leaderboard.
Although many big hitters in the Ghost Recon community will be taking part, I cannot emphasize enough that even inexperienced coop players should give this a try. You will not find a better run, friendlier competiton than one run by Alpha Squad, so if you have any questions at all, hit our forums for help.

This assassination mission is a little different from most missions you will play, because at the end of the mission it will score your stealth performance. This is a neat addition as it means you can try and better your own score next time, or compare scores with other players. You can find our full review here, where I also list my scores if you think you can beat them! Download the file here and extract with winrar.

12 Weeks v4.0
"These Missions were an absolute ball to play and I hope that RightHand has more Missions in store for Us in the Future. The Continuity of the Campaign was a real Plus for Us as We like a Plot that Our Team can at least follow to a Logical Conclusion"

BajaBravo is known for releasing quality Ghost Recon mods, and when he says "it's my intention to make this mod as technically perfect as I can", then you know something special is on the way. Keep checking this forum discussion for updates, or click either of the above images to visit the modders respective websites.
The new maps from Neutron are complete bar a few modifications which takes a little time. El Oso is also working on the last 2 missions of the 8 mission campaign. After some playtesting and bug squashing, the full 100Mb+ package might be available early next month. Suffice to say Frostbite is being worked on, and is shaping up to be the Ghost Recon mod release of the year!
Marines and Games
"As the military embraces electronic games as a training tool, a growing number of soldiers are fighting in a virtual Iraq war even as they remain stateside. For many soldiers, the increasingly realistic simulations often seem like the closest thing to being in combat."
