Command LIVE is a very ambitious project. Its aim is to recreate highly accurate scenarios from real-world situations and events, as they happen. WarfareSims has teamed up with the best editors and modders from the community, to create short, engaging scenarios that re-create real life events. Where geopolitical instability calls for military power to come into play, the Command LIVE project calls for players.
The fall of Omar al-Bashir has taken a region that was unstable and made it even more so. To shore up what had become an important client state, China embarks on the largest and longest foreign deployment it has ever conducted. Waves of barely disguised aircraft and troops pour into the country. Across the border, France does the same to its own former colony, Chad.
Dozens of warplanes have been stuffed into barely adequate airbases scattered across barren wilderness. These range from Cold War hand-me-downs to the newest versions of powerful fighters with advanced radars. Nuclear aircraft carriers and submarines prowl the waters to the east. Large ground forces face each other down.
