E3: Just Cause: 12 screens and 1 trailer

E3: Just Cause: 12 screens and 1 trailer

Eidos unveils Just Cause, action game created by the sweden studio Avalanche. We don't know much about it, except that it will be about political affair in paradisiac landscapes. And also about guns. We'll see more soon.

Just Cause vous place dans la peau d'un agent de la CIA chargé de renverser une république bananière, viciée par la corruption, la drogue et la contrebande de maracas. Clairement, on aura pas trop de nos deux mains pour venir à bout de la raclure communiste, et Eidos nous promet un gameplay riche et varié. Ma foi, si Just Cause est aussi intéressant à jouer qu'il est joli, ça me donnerait presque envie de me raser la tête et de crier "Sir ! Yes Sir!" tout en sirotant une piñacolada fraîche que m'aurait servie une danseuse exotique, confortablement allongé sur les rives d'une plage de sable fin. Pas moins.

I saw a show about this a while back on TV. When I saw this i decided to look into it some more.

1989 - 1990

The invasion of Panama, known as Operation JUST CAUSE, was an unusually delicate, violent, and complex operation. Its key objectives were the capture of Manuel Noriega and the establishment of a democratic government. America applied overwhelming combat power during the invasion, seeking to minimize loss of life and destruction of property,. and to speed the transition to friendly relations. The U.S. had bases located there, and U.S. troops had a long-standing relationship with the Panama Defense Forces (PDF). American SOF personnel, having been based in Panama3 were acutely aware of the delicate nature of the mission and were instrumental in achieving U.S. objectives.

During Operation JUST CAUSE, the special operations component of Joint Task Force South (the overall invasion force) was the Joint Special Operations Task Force (JSOTF). The JSOTF; commanded by Major General Wayne A. Downing, was organized into smaller task forces: TF RED (the Army's 75th Ranger Regiment), TF BLACK (Army Special Forces), and TF WHITE (SEALs and Special Boat Unit assets). These task forces were supported by Psychological Operations and Civil Affairs units, Army Special Operations helicopters, and USAF air commando units.

The JSOTF's principal H-Hour missions were the capture of Noriega and the destruction of the PDF's ability to fight. As it turned out, the U.S. forces did not know Noriega's location at H-Hour; accordingly, the JSOTF focused on the H-Hour missions against the PDF, the attack on the Comandancia (the PDF's headquarters in Panama City) and the rescue of an American citizen from the adjoining prison (the Carcel Modelo) were the responsibility of a joint task force that included Special Forces ground elements, SOF helicopters and AC-130 gunships, and TF GATOR [M-113 armored personnel carriers and soldiers from the 4th Battalion, 6th Infantry (Mechanized)1. Because of indications that H-Hour had been compromised, the attack on the Comandancia began 15 minutes early, at 0045 on 20 December 1989.
