The US does not assume it will be held innocent of the raid and needs to find the current locations of assets that can be used against its fleet. The mission starts with the drone in flight over the Gulf. Your programmed route will take you over all the harbor and port facilities in the area of Bandar Abbas, Iran. The area is heavily defended. The mission is to determine locations and numbers of Iranian Navy ships and speedboats in the event that Iran reacts to Israeli raids by striking at shipping through the Strait of Hormuz.

Use the Photo Recce Mod keys to look around. You can take pictures with the Prt Scr button if you wish. You are looking for Kilo Class submarines, Ghadir mini subs, missile boats, speedboats and mine layers. When you know what ships are present and where they are, proceed on course to the isolated strip at Khasab in Oman to land. Taxi to parking. You are in the metal building at the south end of the parking ramp. Say hello to the goat.
