While the enemy is very low on the Air resources, they're doing much better regarding ground resources. While they're not on the offensive, command wants to thin out the ground forces around Oddi and Tepesta.

Falcon1 and Fury1 are tasked to interdict enemy ground units, in their respective kill-boxes at steer-point 4. Our intelligence indicates that in the target area there are multiple tank battalions : the 4th, the 13th, the 14th and the 3rd.

Cowboy1 is 4-ship sweep-escort for the package.

Note that 48nm to the north-east of the target area, at the Vuojarvi highway strip airbase there are 6 active Su-30Ms and the airbase is at 100%;.

GREEN lane is south-west.

There are no known SAM or AAA battalions in the target area.

The package will consist of 2 AI flights and a SWEEP/ESCORT:

  • Cowboy1 SWEEP -- Departs from the 185th @ Gallivare-- Payload is free

  • Falcon1 AI -- Departs from the 185th @ Gallivare -- Payload is free = currently loaded with AGM65Ds

  • Fury1 AI -- Departs from the 185th @ Gallivare -- Payload is free = currently loaded with AGM65Ds


Flight            Task         TO          PP        TOT        IDM    VHF   TACAN    FL       LASER CODES

Cowboy1          SWEEP        02:14        02:22      02:34        1     1     11/74    270       1611-1614
Falcon1           AI          02:15        02:23      02:29        2     2     16/79    240       1621-1624
Fury1             AI          02:16        02:24      02:31        3     3     21/84    220       1631-1634

Further considerations:

  • Falcon1 can be pushed back depending on the available number of pilots

  • Package commander is the first flight in the air.

  • Even if we don't expect enemy air activity, flights are expected to be able to switch roles depending on the circumstances.

  • While not necessary, if one AI flight holds a CAP while the other engages AG, take fuel into account .

Mission success, all flights: 75% units hit for ordnance expended, and no losses to enemy fighters.


Flight Leads in this Sunday's official campaign mission, "Russian Bear 2018 - Mission 10" are requested to post a debrief of their flights actions, including any lessons learned or that should be learned by others.

Fury1 AI
Fury11 mango AA=0 AG=0 RTB
Fury12 Griffin AA=0 AG=2 RTB
Fury13 Floyd AA=0 AG=6! RTB


1 entered when flight was already airborne and the first thing was to cover Falcon A2A while they finnished their ground attack. There were 2 SU30s coming from the north but they turned cold and stayed cold while we monitored them. When Falcon went A2A we commenced our ground attack and when dakota decided to RTB which we did without further events.

75% Ordanance hit rate was achieved across both AI flights so a MS was declared for both.

Flight Role: AI

Smooth INGRES found the targets in 2 lines and sorted 1/3 on one line and 2/4 on the other. We were able to get done in time to set up a CAP north of FURY so they could go heads-down.

Split the flight when #4 had low fuel and everybody landed safely.

Fun mission
