Mission 35 - Overview
Fallujah: Operation al-Fajr (Dawn), Part 3

Our special thanks for the Marines and associates who helped us in preparing this mission, and to those still serving in Operation Iragi Freedom. It was a pleasure working (and playing) with you. We hope that this simulation is a faithful document of your actions, and a helpful learning tool for the future.

Fallujah, Iraq. November 8, 2004: In a final push to regain control of the violent Sunni city, more than 10,000 Marines, Army soldiers and Iraqi troops assault Fallujah. In this, Kuma's second al-Fajr mission, we follow the path of Marines of the 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment as they push their way into the neighborhood of Jolan, facing a hornets nest of enemy fire, prepared positions and booby traps. The Marines' job: investigate each and every structure for signs of the enemy in a deadly game of "whack a mole."

In the end, it was a stunning victory with an historically low casualty rate. In today's Kuma mission we'll look at the tactics employed by insurgent forces and the steps the Mariness took to defeat them. As Kuma Military Advisor Dan Snyder notes in the tactical section, it was a "cordon and knock REAL hard."

This mission features a drive through Fallujah in a continuation from al-Fajr, Part 2. You have a machine gun mounted on your vehicle but you will quickly learn that a numerous and determined enemy will take away that advantage. The mission illustrates the difficulties faced by the troops in Iraq who have to negotiate the dangerous roadways where ambushes have become a daily occurance.

Release Date: January 31, 2005
