  Player's News: Close Combat 2: Operation Just Cause
Posted on Sun Dec 24, 2006 6:57 am by webmaster
Close Combat 2 A Bridge too Far Nembo writes..... "Ok well, I've been working on this mod for about six months, having started researching the fighting in the later part of the summer of 06'. Since I wanted to finish this mod for the anniversary of the Invasion I am releasing the mod in a early beta version. All that realy neads to be finished are the operations, campaigns, some of the vehicle graphics, the help file, and two maps. Hopefully by December 21st of 07' all will be done."

The American Ivasion of Panama began on December 20, 1989, at 0100 local time. The operation involved nearly 30,000 U.S. troops and over 300 aircraft —including the AC-130 aerial gunship, OA-37B observation and attack aircraft, and the F-117A stealth aircraft and AH-64 Apache helicopter which were both used for the first time in combat. These were deployed against the 3,000 members of the Panama Defense Force (PDF).

The operation began with an assault of strategic installations such as the civilian Tocumen International Airport in Panama City, a PDF garrison and airfield at Rio Hato, where Noriega also maintained a residence, and other military command centers throughout the country. The attack on the central headquarters of the PDF (referred to as La Comandancia) touched off several fires, one of which destroyed most of the adjoining and heavily populated El Chorrillo neighborhood in downtown Panama City. During the firefight at the Comandancia, the PDF downed one AH-6 Little Bird helicopter, and disabled or destroyed severl armored vehicles. The Panamanian Defense Force was overwhelmed by the larger U.S. forces.

Military operations continued for several days, mainly against paramilitary units of Noriega loyalists called "Batallones de la Dignidad". With the collapse of the Panamanian Defense Force, looting and other forms of vandalism quickly ensued in most urban areas, but despite the widespread lawlessness, the main focus of the American forces continued to be Noriega's capture and extradition. Noriega remained at large for several days, but realizing he had few options in the face of a massive manhunt, with a one million dollar reward for his capture, he obtained refuge in the Vatican diplomatic mission in Panama City. The American military's psychological pressure on him and diplomatic pressure on the Vatican mission, however, was relentless, including the playing of loud rock-and-roll music day and night in a densely populated area. As a result, Noriega finally surrendered to the U.S. military in January ,1990. He was immediately put on a military transport plane and extradited to the United States. By mid-January, American combat forces had begun to withdraw.


Nembo écrit… « Ok bon, J’ai travaillé sur ce Mod près de six mois, en commençant vers la fin de l’été 2006 par rechercher les combats. Depuis j’ai tout engagé pour finir ce Mod avant la date anniversaire de l’invasion. Voilà donc que je met en ligne le Mod en version Bêta. Ce qu’il reste à finir sont les opérations, campagnes, quelques graphiques de véhicules, le fichier d’aide et deux cartes. J’espère que pour le 27 Décembre 2007 tout serra terminé."

L’invasion américaine de Panama commence le 20 Décembre 1989 à 01.00Hrs heures locale. L’opération verra près de 30.000 hommes U.S. et plus de 300 avions- incluant le AC-130, OA-37B observation et attaque, F-117A et le AH-64 Hélicoptère Apache qui furent utilisés pour la première fois lors de combat.. Cela contre 3.000 membres des forces de défense de Panama.(PDF).

L’opération commence par un assaut des installations stratégiques civils comme l’Aéroport international de Panama « Tocumen », une garnison PDF et l’aéroport de Rio Hato , où Noriega a une résidence, ainsi que d’autres centre de commandement militaire dans le pays. L’attaque du quartier général PDF ( ou La Comandancia) touché par de nombreux tirs, qui fit de nombreux mort dans la population du voisinage d’El Chorrillo dans le bas de la ville de Panama. Pendant le bombardement de la Comandancia, le PDF toucha un petit hélicoptère AH-6, et endommagea et détruisit nombreux blindés. La force de défense Panamienne fût submergés par les forces U.S.

Les opérations militaires continueront pendant de nombreux jours, principalement contre des unités paramilitaires loyales à Noriega appelés"Batallones de la Dignidad". Avec la chute des forces de défense Panamienne, de nombreux pillages et vandalisme se sont rapidement installés dans la plupart des secteurs urbains, mais en dépit de l'anarchie répandue, le principal objectif américain continuait d’être la capture et l’extradition de Noriega. Noriega résista plusieurs jours, mais réalisant qu’il n’avait que peu d'options face à un assaut massif, avec un million de récompense du dollar pour sa capture, il obtenait le refuge dans une mission diplomatique du Vatican à Panama. La pression psychologique des militaires américains sur lui et la pression diplomatique sur la mission de Vatican, était implacable, y compris la diffusion de Rock jour et nuit dans un secteur très peuplé. En conséquence, Noriega s'est finalement rendu aux militaires des États-Unis en janvier 1990. Il a été immédiatement mis dans un avion militaire de transport et extradé aux Etats-Unis.
A la mi-janvier, la force de combat américaine commença à se retirer.
