New York (Oct. 4, 2004) – Kuma\War, the revolutionary online game that blends real world news coverage with interactive game technology to re-create authentic military missions, has released its newest mission “Dai Chopan: The Taliban Trap.” Set in the terrorist enclave of Dai Chopan, Afghanistan on June 9, 2004, the mission re-creates an actual battle pitting U.S. Marines against Taliban fighters, whose murderous spree endangered the lives of Afghan citizens, police officers, and UN and aid workers, and delayed Afghanistan’s first democratic election.
In “Dai Chopan: The Taliban Trap” players join US Marine Forces from the 22nd Expeditionary Unit (MEU) as they try to put an end to the Taliban’s violent attacks in the Zabul province of Afghanistan. As part of Operation Mountain Viper, the Marines launch a surprise attack against the Taliban, but the assault does not go as planned. Along the convoy route to the insurgent’s hideout, 100 Taliban ambush the unsuspecting Marines. Your mission will be to repel the assault, flip the ambush, and as the Marines succeeded in doing that day, rid the region of terrorist forces.
In addition to the mission re-creation and chronology of the actual event, a high quality video news show featuring Kuma’s military advisor Major General Thomas L. Wilkerson (ret.) discusses offensive operations in terrorist havens like Dai Chopan. Extensive intel is also provided in the form of satellite imagery, real world maps, photos and extensive news reporting of the event.
