[ADO] Tropica is now a "Combined Operations" map
ArmA2 and ArmA2 Operation Arrowhead needed.

Required addons:

tropica_objets.pbo [included in the release]
brg_africa.pbo : African Foliage 1.20 by Berghoff

Description :

Tropica is a medium size island, 17 km x 13 km, located in the Mozambique channel, East of the Africa coast.
Most of the island is covered with dry savana, but in two large basins, some mangroves and tropical forest are to be found along coastal river beds more or less flooded by brackish water as the fresh water left by huge seasonal rain-pours evaporated.
The underground of Tropica is known to be rich in natural resources, from diamonds to gas and oil.
This island having been discovered by Portuguese sailors, then Spanish kingdom has conquered it, to be ousted by Great Britain and France. The agreement between these last ones leading to France remaining the last owner is unclear.
In the 70' during the decolonization era, North Tropica was ruled by a short lived Democratic People Republic of Tropica with a lot of help from Soviet Union, the only visible remain of that era is the long concrete runway built near Banga as an emergency landing site for Buran soviet shuttle.
The French are still holding an air base : BA96, on "ile du Corsaire".
The population of Tropica is a mix of peoples from different African areas as well as natives and Europeans.
The local government formally elected a 99% is in fact held by CEMTEX and TNT, two major companies looking after Tropica underground resources.
They are more or less blatantly fighting to gain control of all the riches using private militias to do so.

Features

Towns and villages:
* 2 main towns : Tropicaville and Banga
* 5 towns : Palmera, Toba and Bangataba, Ghaho and Djoba
* many hamlets along the few dirt tracks
* a dozen of huts villages in Gha and Djo basins.
