General Aziz is the Supreme Commander of the Iraqi Army in Conflict: Desert Storm.

BiographyEdit

General Aziz is introduced as the Supreme Commander of the Iraqi Army at the beginning of Mission 14. While the Iraqi Army is in full retreat, General Aziz is unwilling to surrender and end the war so John Bradley, Paul Foley, Mick Connors and David Jones are sent to kill him. They locate him inside of an old 13th century Crusader fort 50 miles north of Baghdad that General Aziz has made into his base with his heavily fortified command bunker in the middle.

The squad infiltrates the fort through the sewers, kills the infantry inside and destroys the tanks and SAM emplacements protecting the base. Without the SAM emplacements, the fort is left defenseless and the squad calls in an air strike on General Aziz's bunker. With air raid sirens wailing, General Aziz emerges from his bunker to make a run for it, only to be shot dead by the squad as he tries to flee. Moments later, his bunker is destroyed by a Stealth Fighter armed with G-28 "Bunker Buster" bombs.

With General Aziz dead and unable to rally the Iraqi Army for a counterattack, the Iraqi Army surrenders unconditionally, ending the war.

TriviaEdit

  • Although he is only formally introduced in the final two levels of the game, General Aziz is effectively the main boss of Conflict: Desert Storm due to his role as the Supreme Commander of the Iraqi Army.
  • If a player positions themselves in front of the entrance to the bunker before calling in the air strike, or at least before the doors open, they can open fire and kill General Aziz before can leave the bunker or react at all.
  • General Aziz himself proves to be effectively defenseless once the air strike forces him to expose himself. Aside from two bodyguards, he has no protection and no weapon and can easily be shot to death once the bunker doors open and his guards are killed.
  • After General Aziz is killed, the mission objective surrounding him is completed though the air strike continues. As a result, the player doesn't actually have to stay around to watch the air strike destroy General Aziz's bunker as they have already completed their mission objective and can simply head for extraction.
