Sorry people it seems that Gold Beach and Pegasus Bridge are crashing to desktop. So you will NOT see those 2 maps in the rotation.

[size=14][color=red]Operation Overlord, Status Report[/color][/size]

[color=gray]The latest intel on the status of Operation Overlord has just come in off the telegraph. Overlord is scheduled for the morning high tide on June 5th. The latest radar reports indicate that the weather will most likely will be a violent storm, bringing with it six to eight foot swells and heavy rains. Chances are that the operation will need to be delayed. Stand down but be ready to go at a moments notice. Below is a photo of the overcast beach and Sea Wall that some of you will be tasked with scaling.[/color]

[size=14][color=red]Operation Overlord, Status Report[/color][/size]

[color=gray]Operation Overlord has just been officially postponed until the morning tide on June 6. The weather is too harsh to allow the channel crossing any earlier. June 6th will be the last window of opportunity this month to capitalize on an early morning high tide as well as a full moon. Intel reports indicate that the defenses are very solid on the beaches, with large strecthes of open killing fields. Here is a photo of Utah Beach. Note the barbed wire and anti-vehicle obstacles.[/color]
