OperationsEdit

Fao Fortress is featured as the first map in Oil of Empires in Operations. The attackers are the British Empire making a beach landing, while the defenders are the Ottoman Empire trying to prevent the attackers from reaching the fortress.

Sector 1Edit

British forces commence their attack by landing at the beach west of the fortress.

Sector 2Edit

Ottoman forces retreat east as the British make their way through a village surrounded by marshland.

Sector 3Edit

British forces advance to the fortress itself with the objective of capturing both the outer and inner courtyard, which would result in them taking over the beach and securing a landing point for more reinforcements before heading to the Suez Canal.
