The Troubles went on for thirty years and around 3500 people died (with another 50 000 wounded). It was a low-low intensity conflict, with most of the people dying in circumstances that has no connection to the kind of warfare PR portrays (we're talking bombings, assassinations, etc.)

Don't get me wrong. It could probably be done in an interesting way! I'm just saying; when portraying a real-life conflict you should, IMO, do it respectfully and realistically. In some cases, like this one, this means it can be hard to combine the scenario with the the kind of action-gameplay we're used to.

EDIT: you guys dont need my life story.

Skirmish map, urban layer, ticket count set to reveal "bomb" once enough tickets lost or intel gained. blufor has to destroy the bomb before they lose all tickets or timer reaches 0 seconds. Good fast paced inf skirmish. British v IRA, IDF v Hammas etc etc.

No content so may not happen.

Convoy map through lush green Irish land.

Brits have to get from A to B variety of routes IRA has to stop them.

Map could be small but offering enough routes for variety but early decision points giving IRA enough time to deploy.

Being a Northern Irish man, I would find the inclusion of the IRA to be interesting. But as the above posts have stated, it would be difficult to depict the conflict between the British Army and IRA that could both adhere to PR and not feel made up.

The IRA generally used terrorist tactics such as IED's, kidnappings and assassinations (and sometimes Mortars). Very rarely did they fire upon the RUC (such as my father, who was shot at in his police car by IRA members using M1 Garands) or The British Army.

On the subject of Ireland - depicting the Irish Army's involvement in stabilizing Liberia would be nice.
