Game Play

Iran must strike back. It has several choices. None good. Its best weapon is to close the Strait, cutting off the oil supply and disrupting the world economy in a very short period with relative ease. All it needs to do is sink a few ships and commerce will stop. Depart as number 2 in Lion flight from Bandar Abbas International Airport. Join on Lion Lead and proceed along programmed course in search of shipping. While maintaining loose formation, use your surface radar to find targets. You must type “E” (for enemy) until a target is found on screen. Then, the missile is locked on.  If you have destroyed the ship, it will list and burn. Return to base, land and taxi to parking.
