You are tasked with destroying assets in both the 292nd Tank Battalion and the 13th AAA towed battalion in order to help in the final capture of Sayda.
Be aware that a reinforcement of SA-8 has been seen in the NE heading south. There have also been some losses to other flights from SA-6 and Sa-17s in the east so stay feet wet as much as possible.

Fairly quiet start, Idiot Sabre was shot down because he fixated on getting a solid cross for the Maverick instead of getting out of dodge.
Fisty and Echion did a good job with their mavericks.
Mango and Vosene LOA
No fences were harmed during this sortie.

First in the air we headed to the target at FL280. When we got to the target area we could see the enemy in Sadya were being pummelled by artillery. We advised the other flights and gave them new targets north of the city. These were conveniently located on a patch of desert and easy to find.
We then settled down for our CAP, one heading east as the other headed west, thus keeping a wary eye on the enemy territory at all times. It was very quiet for the most part and the strike flights were allowed to attack without worry.
However, soon after Fist 3 had finished their attack and the remaining two aircraft joined us to bolster our CAP presence, the skies started to get busy. First up were SU-24 bombers, followed by SU-22 and MiG 23MLs. Between us we took care of them all.
After Utopic's flight were finished we held back to cover their six. The sneaky enemy decided to come in side on and Utopic had to engage the MiG 23's as described by Utopic above.
The landings were nicely co-ordinated and we all came in to land one after the other. A nice flight.

Gipsy51: "Utopic" AA=0 AG=6 RTB
Gipsy52: "Aim" AA=0 AG=5 RTB
Gipsy53: "Zipgun" AA=1 AG=5 RTB
When cleared in, we started the AG attack, we had both stationary and moving targets. We started to engage, but needed multiple passes due to needing to lase.
When finished the attack, we went south planning to RTB. I noticed some contacts, I didn't really expect it, but declared them anyway. They were hostile, I called it on U6, with the intention to monitor.
Unfortunately they kept getting close to us, so we had to engage.
We sorted and fired, but I had no idea that a pair of F15 had just gotten between us and the bandits.
The AA engagement turned a bit messy, with Zipgun taking one out and the F15 taking out the other.
After the engagement, we RTBed with nothing out of the ordinary.
