Operation: Midas Touch II

by Arnie

David at Nato Command mailed in news of their latest upcoming event:

National Airsoft Tactical Operations is proud to present Operation: Midas Touch II, our 2nd Annual March of Dimes fundraising event. This will be an all day (12+hours) airsoft scenario to be held at Adventure Beach Scenario Paintball in Tabor City, NC (80+ acres). This event will have multiple missions for each team as well as special GPS based missions.

We believe March of Dimes is a very worthy cause and the money raised will help fund research to reduce birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality.

Adventure Beach Scenario Paintball will donate a portion of each field fee, but would like to ask each player to join with us and make a donation as well. For each $5.00 donation to the March of Dimes, you will receive one additional raffle ticket, so you can increase your chances of winning a great prize and join us in supporting a very worthy cause.

We would like to thank our sponsors for their very generous support.

Welcome back to Argentina.

A Swedish based company called XStrata owns the Alumbrera gold mine, located in Argentina on the border of Chile. The Alumbrera mine is one of the largest gold mines in the world. XStrata has contracted Backwater to provide their facilities and gold transports with security. Backwater is a Private Military Contractor (PMC) who employs highly trained and motivated operators mostly made up of ex-special forces. Every gold shipment had been transported by airplane, until a few days ago when one of the transport planes carrying $32,000,000 in gold crashed. The pilot, First Lieutenant Hallow, is believed to have survived the crash, but his location is unknown. All he had to do was make this last flight and then he would be on leave for three weeks. Three days in a hostile wilderness is not what Hallow would consider a good vacation. Backwater has sent a recovery & rescue team to search for Hallow and the gold.

In the Argentina jungle under the shelter of a tree we find First Lieutenant Hallow. While he rests, he hears a loud explosion and gunfire in the distance, hoping that it does not come any closer. He was highly trained and knew that in the event something like this happened he had to scatter and hide the gold. It was worth more than his life. The last trip back to the crash site after hiding the gold he caught the attention of one of the rebel scouts in the area. After a vicious struggle, the scout will never be able to report anything, Hallow silenced him forever. After returning to his concealed makeshift camp, he examines his leg and noticed the dressing on his wound needs changing. While changing his bandage, he hears the sound of gun fire again and then silence. A few moments later he sees an Xstrata helicopter above the tree line gaining altitude. He scrambles to get his radio, hoping to contact the helicopter pilot before his radio dies. “This is First Lieutenant Hallow, ID 76 Tango Alpha. Do you copy?”. Over the static filled radio he hears a voice say “76 Tango Alpha, roger that”. Then the static stops as the final bit of power drained from his radio. He watches as the helicopter hovers just above the treetops for several minutes and then disappears into the horizon. Mumbling to himself “They will come back for me. They won’t leave me here, but why was there an Xstrata transport helicopter here?”.

So now First Lieutenant Hallow has to wait for help to arrive, but in the distance he hears voices. He quietly pulls himself deeper into the brush, praying for help to arrive quickly.

First Lieutenant Hallow was unaware that only a couple miles away, Xstrata had an armored transport truck disabled by an IED. The Backwater security detail onboard was defending it against the local rebels. Every since First Lieutenant Hallow’s plane went missing, Xstrata switched to armored ground transport, but the local rebels were prepared for any vehicles coming through. The Backwater security detail was prepared though because at the end of the day, not one gold brick had been lost. The helicopter that First Lieutenant Hallow had seen was the transport helicopter carrying the Backwater security detail and the precious gold to safety.
