The Ponce has received an urgent request for help from an oil tanker that is under attack by a swarm of Iranian missile boats. You are the closest capable weapon. Depart the Ponce immediately and proceed on programmed course to the north. Target and destroy all the speedboats. They can defend themselves so maneuver at all times. Return to the Ponce and land. If you have full up vector and airbrakes deployed, you cannot catch the ship so tap down vector two or three times and don’t go full up until just before touch down. B for Brakes. CTRL-I for engine off.
