Russia has invaded Finland. NATO forces must repulse the attack
before it advances into Norway and Sweden.

Our attacks against tank battalions close to the city of Balgda
were less successful than expected, so we will re-attack today.

AWACS support is available.



The picture shows the current situation. It seems the Russian air force
concentrates multiple flights in one package, so be careful when making contact.

Stud1 and Viper1 are a 4-ship AI flights.
Mission success is given for 50% hit of munition fired per flight,
PS is given for 25% hit of munition fired per flight.

Avenger1 is a 4-ship TARCAP flight.
Mission success is given for no losses to Stud or Viper flight by A2A,
PS is given for 2 planes loss max.

Ingressed as fragged, in box formation, with lead element going AG on the target column. However, Element picked up a Mig29S group inbound from the southeast and 30 miles off lead's nose, so he called off the attack, just after #2 got 2 bombs off. These had the desired effect on the column, taking out 4 tanks. Element pressed on the incoming migs and got both, but #3 broke MAR in the engagement and took one up the pipe. At this point, Viper had committed on a gorilla group coming in from the East, so Stud turned to support and engaged multiple targets on Viper's 6. During this engagement, #2 was forced defensive and broke his remaining 2 bombs. But the immediate area was cleared and Stud pressed onto their target for a short time. #1 got 4 bombs off in 1 pass, killing 8 vehicles, followed up by #4, who dropped 1 bomb to finish off the column, then expended his remaining bombs on alternate targets in the kill box. Following this, another gorilla came up from the southeast, so we engaged those, then being Bingo weapons, we scrammed home, with #2 providing cover with his remaining 2 slammers.

Overall a mission success, but lessons learnt, particularly for #1 on pre-mission planning and comms during the flight.

1.Two
2.Lead, you're on fire.
3.I'm bingo fuel.
4.I'll take the fat one.... :/

We planned to stay 30nm from target and orbit until Stud would have
finished their attack runs. The incoming groups from the north east
let us regroup and communicate our availibility to Stud flight.
The engagement draw us far to the north east towards the MiG base
and we turned cold to go for a direct attack run on the main target.
The cloud cover didn't allow the use of the TGP, so we had to
drop by radar. Stud was winchester that time and we turned to
cover them on the way back to base.
