Operation: Ulysses was a mission conducted in the Magellan Straits in 2021. Artemis Global Security received a support contract from the US forces as the result of the successful Operation: Backfire. Artemis dispatched Reaper Flight to provide close air support for the Navy's USS James Lawrence carrier strike group, preparing to counter-attack Las Trinidad's last stand after their ground offensive details were secured by a Ghost Recon Team.
Operation Backfire dealt a crippling blow to Las Trinidad, and now a US Navy strike group has arrived to support Brazil's counter-attack. Las Trinidad is launching a last-ditch defense on the US Navy strike group in hopes of regaining the upper hand.
Colonel Bruce: I see you still have issues obeying direct orders, Captain; let me remind you that I'm in charge of all Artemis Global Security assets here, and unless I'm mistaken you're flying a plane that is Artemis company property. The US commanders were pleased with your performance during the operation and they've requested more air support for future operations. Your squadron will be temporarily assigned to fly close escort for the US carrier group. Make sure you stay close to their ships. A US Navy officer will brief you on your assignment. Enjoy your flight.
Adam Bowden: Here's the situation, Captain; after we captured Las Trinidad's battle plans at their field headquarters, the enemy halted their ground offensive just like we hoped. But our reconnaissance satellites have detected a large enemy fleet leaving Las Trinidad waters and moving south; we've been tracking them ever since, and the James Lawrence battle group is moving to intercept. Artemis has assigned you and your wingmen to provide additional air support for the coming battle. We requested assistance from their naval units as well, but we were told that no ships were available. You and your pilots are going to be assigned to fleet protection during the offensive: I want your flight to maintain a combat air patrol in the vicinity of the James Lawrence battle group until further notice. Are there any questions? No? Then report to your planes, gentlemen, and good luck.
Artemis' Reaper Flight protected the USS James Lawrence carrier strike group from Las Trinidad naval fleet. Shortly after the fight, Artemis launched a sneak attack with their small battle group in an attempt to regain control over the Brazil 'market'. Reaper Flight were ordered to retreat, but they have no choice but to defect and protect the USS James Lawrence carrier strike group from Artemis' powerful flagship Myrmidon's attacks. After the Myrmidon's destruction, Crenshaw and his wingmen left Artemis and rejoined the H.A.W.X. squadron.
