Game Play

Even a small force can pin down the final elements departing the beachhead. Troops and armor are moving eastward in increasing mass and speed. The Marines call in close air support. Join on Denver Lead for the flight to the beach via programmed route. Select the T-72 tanks and destroy them. Use your wingman also. Find the Iranian troops behind the rubble wall and knock out their position. Then return to the Makin Island to land and park.

Land as before, slowing with air brakes and landing gear. When approaching the deck increase the thrust vector but do not select full downward thrust or the ship will sail away beneath you.
