AZER2000.TXT for Longbow 2 AZER2000 campaign (c)1997 Origin Systems Inc. 12/23/97 1. Description AZER2000 is a replacement campaign for the Fallen Crescent campaign included in Longbow 2. The original campaign has American forces challenging Iranian military forces in the Azerbahjian region of the Middle East. AZER2000 is the same campaign, but with a challenging twist. The authentic Iranian Order of Battle, which was faithfully represented in Longbow 2, has been replaced with front line, modern CIS equipment. Armor, SAMS, and helicopters are now state-of-the art, and their doctrine and performance has been changed to reflect this. The already challenging Fallen Crescent campaign now has a added level of difficulty. Easy recon missions now become desperate searches for wily, powerful foes. Helicopter ambushes are no longer opportunities for easy kills. Even normal CAS missions have the added challenge of the surprise SAM vehicle mixed in with the tanks. Not for novice pilots, AZER2000 will challenge the best of the Longbow 2 pilots, and make cooperative play a necessity for success. Good luck! You're going to need it. 2. Installation Installing AZER2000 is easy. Run the self extracting file AZER2000.EXE in your Longbow 2 directory (usually c:\janes\longbow2). Then, run the batch file INSTAZER.BAT.
