There has been an ongoing military conflict in Cambodia for a while now, due to a political crisis. A new president was recently elected, but there was a remarkable amount of opposition. The situation escalated quickly and resulted in an armed conflict between the government forces and a private army of the opposing party, who calls themselves the Cambodian Free Army (CFA) or in some cases the Cambodian-Vietnamese Free Army (CVFA) due to the growing Vietnamese support. The current president gained his influence due to support from his allies, including USA. The elected government now claims that there was a lot of political pressure from USA and that USA's government is responsible for the ongoing conflicts. Not to break important relations, USA was forced to provide military support. An American force, callsign Leatherback, has since been fighting the CVFA deep in the jungles of Prei Khmaoch Luong.
Leatherback Red made it half way to their destination, but had to retreat and regroup for another push up the river. With Mekong's help, they finally made it to the crossing. Leatherback Red is now at full strength again and eager to proceed on their journey.
The boat journey isn't over yet. As the river is getting narrower, the dangers are closing in. With Leatherback Red pushing up the river and Blue through the terrain, we're hoping to force the rebel fighters away from the south. Leatherback Red is to proceed up the river until they reach an important bridge crossing, which must be secured before the assault on their fortress in the evening.

Respawn är begränsad, och endast möjlig under fem minuter varje gång ett mål är avklarat, men också i början av scenariot i fall respawn är nödvändig på grund av tekniska eller grenadiära problem.
