Game Play

Interdiction of traffic and materiel from the  more populous northern regions must be maintained until US forces have completed their mission and depart. You will fly as number 2 in Hammer flight from Al Dhafra Air Base in the UAE. Join on Hammer Lead and proceed along programmed course to the target area. Use your surface radar and map to orient yourself. Your target is the bridge. Once you have dropped your ordnance, return to base, land and taxi to parking. You have sufficient fuel aboard to conduct the strike so no tanker will be available.

Expect SAM activity, both radar and IRR, and use your chaff and flares accordingly. Also, be ready for fighter defense. There have been several types stationed with in patrol range of your target: F7M, F5EM, F4D and E, MiG29. You must keep one eye on your ground attack and the other in the sky.
