The ominous sounds of the Apache and Osprey greet you right at the beginning of this map, and a couple of grunts are dropped nearby seconds after you've picked up a weapon. Making your way quickly down a narrow ledge (shooting grunts), you reach a rocket-launching cannon half-way down. Safely behind a shield, you have plenty of time to lay waste to the two craft (satisfyingly, although it can be a while before you're used to the aiming-ahead that's required).
So, what puts this map first? Well, for a start, the scenery is great. A lot of effort has gone into getting it look as natural as possible. The paths of the two craft look nicely random and smooth and the cannon is well set up and good fun (even though it wasn't a requirement).
There isn't much to complain about here. It is possible to fall completely off the map, but since it doesn't happen unless you try, I won't complain.
Overall, this is a great little mission well worthy of the first TWHL Gold Cup!
