Please help to provide more examples of interesting generic objectives. Post the examples and state the "action required" and if possible, the "benefit" such as "obtain info/intel" or "disable communications", etc. If you find a suitable reference image (either Arma 3 or real-life) then provide that too, along with it's clickable thumb-nail image. (I have not done this fully yet for the items below.)

Objectives can also be gathered from other games, especially RTS games, which have many basic objectives.
Sample Demolition Objects:
- destroy disabled vehicle (or data or gear) (eg: crashed helicopter/jet, over-turned tank on truck/train)
- radar antennae - disable comm's
- destroy/disable communications tower - disable comm's (perhaps make it more difficult to destroy due to defenses, so provide secondary option to disable by destroying control panel)
- radar dish - disable comm's
- destroy power generator - disable power for lights/equipment
- artillery radar - disable radar
- destroy tall metal bunker structure - disable lookouts
- destroy Anti-air Tunguska - disable AA defense
- destroy x3-6 AI/player controlled non-movable BM-21 Grad/MLRS trucks, which are periodically firing overhead - disable rocket threats
- destroy tank/container on over-turned truck carrying a tank/container - prevent enemy stealing military secrets
- destroy fuel depot: LPG fuel tanks, fuel barrels - reduce enemy vehicle resources
- destroy vehicle depot: x8-12 tanks/APCs/trucks - reduce enemy vehicle resources
- destroy ammo/ordnance depot: x8 missile crates/hangar/factory - reduce enemy vehicle/weapon resources
- destroying a building or military structure - destroy HQ/military info
Sample Task-based Objectives:
- prisoner extraction - prevent enemy obtaining intel or causing torment
- extract VIP - prevent enemy obtaining intel or causing torment
- escort cargo via PMC units - prevent enemy obtaining cargo
- computer data copying/downloading and computer destruction - obtain intel or next objective location
- obtain computer disc/flash drive for info - obtain intel or next objective location
- disarm huge Arma nuclear bomb device (bomb could be in a large shed/hangar, in a building, on a truck) - prevent explosion, prevent collateral damage
- infiltrating a heavily defended compound (plus maybe destroy internal static weapons/ammo/etc) - provide access point & reduce enemy resources and defenses
- unlock gate (physically or electronically) - provide access point
- breach wall or door/gate - provide access point
Lists will be extended as new ideas are gathered.
