    So we got together today and played out the mission. We did some last minute planning, and decided that we'd be better off to concentrate on our specific objective, but that sowing confusion with the bunker strike would be a good idea. We wanted to stay away from the port as much as possible, especially given the unknown nature of the air defense at the garrison. Since we had them on retainer, we had the other Blackflag unit, the Red Griffons, tasked with taking out the ship and providing SEAD defence. They had two A-6 units, and the EA-6B, so we figured it would be a good thing to have them handle part of the mission. Cost a bit, but we just couldn't afford to spread ourselves too thin. Hugs went Air to Air, with some guided air to ground. I was tasked with the bunker, and had two GPS glide bombs, in addition to some anti-air and general purpose bombs. Scotch had his A-4 loaded to the brim with rockets and cluster munitions, and his wingbuddy Judge was rolling off the deck with some small anti-air, but several racks of small fuel air explosives. We'd rendezvous with the strike force and ensure the airspace was sanitized as they moved on the Prince's location. We departed, linking up with Copernicus that was in the area near the coast.

    The Griffons were already on target, and had begun an attack run on the enemy ship. They came in low over the city, rushing across the port, towards the enemy ship. At the same time, we overtook the french Frelon and Dauphins as we headed in towards the Capital. I followed the main group, hoping to profit from maximum confusion to make my strike unmolested. The Griffons for their part broke out over the harbour and released their primary mission payload, sending four mk46 Torpedoes at the enemy boat. They then rolled out as the guns began firing on them, jinking to try to minimize locks. No radar was up though, so we felt pretty good about the mission so far. I began picking up speed, and rolled onto the proper target line, and pulled up, setting up the mission plan bomb run. Hugs broke from the helicopter area and also climbed, setting up an air watch, as Judge and Scotch circled lower, ready to roll in if required. I hit the right point, and pickled the big air to ground munitions, and turned away in a descent as they dropped towards the target. It took two turns, but one hit directly on target, and a big 'ring of dust' blasted outward from the bunker area. The other bomb failed and splashed into the river, probably digging down through the muddy riverbed. The helicopters arrived over the area, and landed, as the Commandos raced from them towards the enemy stronghold.

    Can't be sure that was a true KO on the bunker though. How big a bomb was it Baron? Granted it probably buried the entrance but it could have survived with only the one hit.

    We were in contact with the Commandos as they hit the holding point. They called to tell us that they had found the Prince and our informant, and were encountering mild resistance so far. Copernicus had told us they had detected no air activity and moved in closer to support us, keeping an eye on the airbase in particular. Hugs called out that he could see a small convoy of trucks moving from one of the government buildings, and apparently heading towards the museum, and Scotch rolled in, flying down the street line to get a better view, and saw the trucks begin to scatter onto side streets. He got off a cannon snapshot and ripped one of them to pieces, but the others headed down alleys. I turned to enter that area, while Judge remained higher, and closer to the museum area. Then the port exploded. Well, not the entire port, but the ship in it did, as the torpedoes struck home, silencing its anti-air guns immediately as the Griffons broke its spine. An SA-6 system went active, and several SAMs went into the air, but none towards us. The Griffon team was on the ball though, as a HARM was already on the way down, the A-6 launching it making a beeline towards the site. Our commando team was about a minute away from the Super Frelon in the courtyard, when the first enemy truck appeared back on the main road heading towards the museum.

    The SAM site went down, and then the Intruder closed it permanently with a series of Iron bombs dropped into the area. I rolled in, performing a quick strafing run on the main road, but missed the truck. However, the truck was forced off the main road again, disappearing into the sidestreet underneath awnings between buildings. Our commando team rushed across the street into the waiting helicopter, which lifted off the ground and began heading South, as the other two formed up on it. Then one of the A-6s took a hit. A streak of smoke raced out from behind a building near the SAM site, nailing the fuselage. They ejected from their plane moments before the flaming wreck smashed into the ground, their remaining armament detonating in a firecracker chain of high explosives. Hugs turned to investigate, and almost immediately spotted a military helicopter emerging from it's hiding spot. However, it looked identical to the two Dauphins we were escorting, except it had missile tubes on its sides, and Hugs held his fire, just in time to see it launch another missile towards our departing helicopters, nailing a Dauphin, blowing it to pieces.

    Judge executed a break turn to line up with the helicopter, but couldn't get a decent tone, so tried a snapshot with his gun, but missed. Hugs meanwhile, executed a perfect immelman, and didn't miss with his shot, a flurry of shells reaching out to swat the offending helicopter from the sky. However, my RIO spotted another helicopter moving south towards our charge, similar type, staying low. We were out of position, but Scotch was not, pulling his loaded jet around on an intercept line for the next phase. Judge also lined up a pass, just in case Scotch missed. Our helicopters were over a park when several lines of smoke appeared out of a nearby office block, and unlike our previous experiences, these ones arced and curved in towards our helicopters. The remaining A-6 turned in, releasing several Mk500s, nailing the building enough to cause it to collapse in on itself, in a pretty good demonstration of why these guys were air to ground specialists. However, the missiles tracked in and hit both of our helicopters, crippling our Frelon and Dauphin. They both circled back over the park, trailing thick black smoke. The Frelon came down hard, hitting roughly and destroying the landing gear. The Dauphin was not as lucky, slewing sideways as it approached, and hitting hard enough to pitch it into a roll, shearing off it's rotors and catching on fire, hitting several trees and coming to a rest after smashing into a large statue.

    I rushed over the area, and we got a call from the ground, the package was still valid, but they were pinned down in the graveyard (turns out not all green spaces in the city are parks) from an adjacent building. Unfortunately, I couldn't do much about it, since I ended up in a hard turn, pushing out flares as a missile roared out of the building towards me. Scotch meanwhile, didn't miss with his shot, sending the enemy helicopter down in flames. The final A-6 tried to get in again but couldn't turn hard enough and extended outbound instead, heading out over the ocean to turn around and get a better line in. At that moment, a powerful radar source blossomed in the city, setting off all of our RWRs. We were trying to narrow down where the source was coming from, but before we could, several massive rocket trails burst out of the city near the waterfront, heading straight upwards on gouts of flame and smoke. One of them turned over quickly, heading out towards the slow A-6, the others continued climbing, arcing over slowly as they quickly headed out to sea. Hugs began looking for enemy ground vehicles, and got a lock, sending out a ATGM before establishing identification. His hit was followed by a massive secondary, a blast wave rippling through the city and over the ocean. But that was a small consolation as the other A-6 took a near miss hit, and radioed us that they were bugging out of the area. Our jamming bird had spotted the enemy radar signature, but had lost it as the transmitter was shut off. They were jamming heavily when their signal cut abruptly.

    Judge was on track though, and rolled in to get a clear shot on the building causing the commandos trouble. He put two fuel air munitions through the roof, and the overpressure wave gutted the site, sending debris spiralling into the streets and dropping the roof in a few places. The call didn't take long, as the commando unit said it was on the move, heading west towards the center road. Scotch had looked at his mission map again, and figured he'd deal with a target preemptively, and sent two iron bombs plummeting into the Ministry of Defence building north of our teams position. Then Copernicus called, telling us they were evading, and had inbound missile tracks closing on them. They would no longer be able to provide support for the next few minutes while they dealt with their issue. Then the trucks appeared again, heading down center street. The commandos called, telling us to wait until they were in the middle of the park, then take out the rearmost truck and lead truck, and to be careful since they were close to the action in ambush. We all turned back, and Hugs sent his final ATGM into the rear truck, while I put a salvo of rockets into the first one (I also hit the second one, but that's the problem with unguided rockets). Judge saw a towed AA gun hitched to one of the trucks, but furious small arms ripped between the two ground forces, as the French mounted their ambush on the pinned group. We got a call a moment later saying they were mounting the trucks. The leader of the group called us and told us of their new plan, since helicopter support was going to take more than an hour. Everything was pissing us off now, and we weren't any happier with this shift, since the French were going to make a run for the airport, and attempt to commandeer a transport aircraft of some type. Meanwhile, we would be providing support, SEAD, air cover, and basically protecting the entire convoy.

    I switched on my radar, no reason to be blind, and everyone knew we were in the area. Scotch turned and headed toward the drifting smoke of the missile launches, with Judge in tow, aiming to deal with the missile system, whatever it was. Hugs formed up with me, as we scouted the initial road toward the airfield. The plan was to break out to the main road, and then just haul as much ass as possible to get their in the least amount of time. We tried to scan the airfield as well, flying close as we turned back to the convoy. We spotted several white helicopters and a white plane on the ground, as well as some camo covered aircraft, definitely fighters of some type. The fighters were moving towards the end of the airstrip, but we didn't engage. Hugs sent out a message on the open frequency telling them we wouldn't engage if they didn't interfere, however we got no response. Meanwhile, the trucks were ploughing through the graveyard, breaking out onto a side street, heading southeast towards UN drive.

    Scotch rolled through a barrel roll, getting a good line on a ground target he had spotted, releasing a single cluster bomb in the area, and the massive secondary indicated he had hit something of importance. He checked, and had gotten a glimpse of the target, looked like a truck with four huge tubes on the bed, before being converted to scrap metal. Judge and him reversed course, looking for more of them, as our convoy peeled out onto the main road. I was turning when I spotted an armed convoy racing towards the still smoking bunker on the Island, closer inspection from Judge revealed that it was apparently an army force from the northern garrison heading towards our own convoy. They weren't gaining, but a quick conference made us determine that we definitely needed to deal with it, since if there was any delay on the road to the airstrip our guys would be trapped between forces on two sides. Problem was there was nothing we had that could take out the bridge, and Scotch was busy with Judge, meaning it was up to me to take them out with dumb bombs. However, as I turned, I noted something on the map, and placed my target marker, and pushed the throttles forward to the stops.

    I dropped, and I didn't really need to aim, since the target was fairly large. The fuel depot was just off to the side of the road, and I raced out over the port, passing over the sinking hulk of the destroyer in the bay, as a massive explosion lit up my rear view mirror. The military convoy took a fairly large hit from the blast, and as I circled back I realized that I hadn't destroyed everything, but they weren't going to be organized and heading anywhere for some time. Meanwhile Judge sent another two small bombs down into the city, hitting what he claimed looked like a radar system being erected. Scotch was circling, when several small hits peppered his aircraft. He jinked, and dropped, not being able to spot the firer. I didn't see it either, and neither did Judge or Hugs. We did get a call from our Etenard tanking squadron, telling us that they had lost contact with Copernicus, and were heading to the AWACS last known position. We told them to proceed with caution, since we didn't know if there was an enemy aircraft out there. Hugs was keeping a close eye on the departing aircraft, but the two F-16s and lone F-15 turned South, heading away from us, and without their radars on. A large C-130 also rumbled off the airstrip, turning away in the same direction the AirScan fighters went.

    On a more serious note, losing your main EC and comms support can't be a good thing. Hope its just a hardware malfunction/jamming because having a bogey(s) in the air at this time isn't good especially since you guys are busy babysitting the convoy and can't get into a protracted firefight without leaving it unprotected.

    The convoy continued rushing towards the airfield, when Hugs and I were both hit from the side by a tracking radar. We both turned north, and immediately pulled four contacts off our scopes. The targets were closing quickly, approaching quite low, but we still got locks, with Hugs sending off two AAMs followed closely by my own two AMRAAMs. Our radar warnings went crazy as the track went to lock guidance, forcing Hugs and I to begin hard turns as we unloaded more countermeasures. My RIO called out that we had a missile inbound, but it roared past us, apparently having lost guidance. Hugs meanwhile evaded successfully, but the missile was still tracking, as it detonated inside a cloud of chaff with a flash. We continued our turns, but our rwrs still screamed at us that we were being locked up, so we both pushed hard, heading south. Our convoy called and told us they were encountering resistance from near the edge of the airfield, and they couldn't advance past it. Scotch abandoned his search and headed towards their position, and the rising smoke from the marked target. I made another hard turn as Hugs did the same, trying to avoid the missiles racing in towards us. I made it through, but Hugs took a hit, suffering critical damage, but not losing any systems, except large chunks of his airframe.

    Hugs turned towards the airfield, hoping to put down his aircraft, when the enemy aircraft lined, up in his rear sixty, executing a high yoyo to line up and not overshoot (they were closing with a mach advantage) Two more missiles erupted from under the fighters wings, heading towards Hugs. I couldn't help, since I had two forming up on my tail, as I tried to build some airspeed. My rio was shouting that they were fishbeds, smoky engines, and I unloaded, building more speed so I could continue to manoeuvre. As long as I could keep the energy up, I could outfight one of them hopefully. Hugs took another hit, which sheared off most of his tail, reducing his manoeuvre capability to that of a lawn dart, but his plane held together. And then Judge roared in behind, sending two Archers straight up the tailpipe of the MiG, shredding the black painted jet in a blast of dark smoke and flaming debris. Scotch screamed past, a flurry of rockets pounding into the enemy position. He turned, heading back towards the developing air fight, as he waited for the Commandos to report on his strike. Hugs for his part dropped his landing gear and smashed into the airstrip, his plane spewing smoke as he careened down the runway.

    I executed a barrel roll and turn, which the MiGs couldn't follow, breaking off to pursue Judge who was trying to angle back into a firing arc. I pulled hard, and failed my break turn, losing precious energy, as Judge entered a split s, getting off a blazing close shot, and hitting one of the MiGs, causing it to catch fire as it raced past. The other fired it's cannon at Judge, who took two hits and lost his internal cannon system in the bargain. However, I had completed my turn, and let loose both my sidewinders, which true to my luck, chased after the MiG before detonating in two glorious misses. The French called up saying they were making their way onto the airfield, and Scotch acknowledged before beginning his chase of the MiG in his Skyhawk. I launched a further two sidewinders at the now fleeing MiG, as both Judge and Scotch fired their cannons. One of my sidewinders hit, crippling the aircraft, with Scotch and Judge finishing off the fishbed with cannon shells. There was no chute.

    The French called us, telling us that they had commandeered a helicopter, and were preparing to depart the airfield. I climbed high with judge, our Radars pounding the air, looking for more targets. Scotch went back over the west edge, continuing his hunt, and daring any anti-air in the area to take a pot-shot at him. The french lifted off, flying out over the water in UN Hind, heading towards the carrier. We turned to follow, when a lone F-16 raced out of a hangar on the airfield, trailing a thick plume of smoke behind it, followed by jeeps. It turned onto a taxiway and began a take off roll, just as our radios crackled, and Hugs moved the F-16 off the runway, telling us that he'd already been shot down once today, and wasn't in the mood for a second time. He told us the aircraft was pretty damaged, and he had warning lights everywhere, but he was heading back to base. We decided to follow him, and headed back to the carrier. The Scotch asked him how he planned to get a US air force plane down on a carrier. We didn't know, but Steve rolled all of our landings, (all of us making it down safely), then had Hugs land the F-16 by crashing it into a net or something. It was that or eject near the carrier and get picked up, and the net was slightly less risky then an ejection.

    After the game, we determined the F-16 could be salvaged, and Hugs was in ok condition. The helicopter landed after we had returned, and the Prince was escorted to the medtechs. We learned that without that bargaining chip, the Liberian government had no strong position anymore, and the war would likely be over within a few days, most likely from a surrender notice pulled. Our informant was entered into debriefing, and told us that he'd had no warning that another group was operating in the area for the government, but that AirScan had formally rescinded their contract, citing unacceptable losses. Scotch actually made good money on the mission, and decided to buy the F-16 off Hugs, which Hugs was fine with. Steve told us that Hugs had found the F-16 in maintenance, AirScan had deemed the airframe unsafe to fly, but he risked it anyway since he was in a tight spot. He figured he'd probably crash into the Atlantic and be picked up by the Hind, but he made it back to the carrier surprisingly. We also found out that the MiGs were J-7s, and the Dauphins were WZ-9s.

    Probably not. Volcanic ash is very, very fine glass particles. Enough of it to visibly coat a plane like that would utterly destroy the turbines.

    Holy shit, where did Liberia get an HQ-15 from? That's even worse than a normal S-300. The S-300 PMU-1 is produced in license by the chinese as the HQ-10. The HQ-15 is an upgrade with ~200 km range instead of 150km.

    Range: 195 km (121mile)
    Max speed: 2,000m/s (4,470 mph)
    Lenght: 7.5 m (25 ft)
    Diameter: 500mm
    Weight: 1,800 kg (3,970 lb)
    Warhead weight: 150 kg (330 lb)

    And that radar array is comparable to the ones used on a fucking AEGIS cruiser.

    Yeah, I enjoyed that bit as well. Come in with a lot of energy on unsuspecting aircraft.

    If you think the S-300 is bad, check out the S-400. Also, the system requires 5 minutes setup time, and take down time is two minutes, meaning you can shoot and scoot with a SAM system.

    Going to bed just after reading about Hugs hitting the runway and not knowing if he survived and then kept away from the computer till now really is hard on a guy.

    The fact that he stole an F16, instead of hooking up with the French, is pretty damn awesome but almost par for the course with these guys. Oh and its probably an A model...wasn't that what they shot down the other day?

    I am frowning very hard at you right now. Are you feeling ashamed yet? You should!

    No kidding! The moment I read about the falcon starting to roll out, my heart sank a little as I thought this was it for the convoy. Then it turns out to be Hugs, and the Liberians are shouting "nigga stole my 15 million dollar state-of-art killing machine"... I don't laugh aloud at internet stuff often, but that had me howling.

    Let's say there's ac razy mass-murdering doctor. The number o fvictims doesn't matter, but it's high. He was working on a cure for lung cancer before being caught; if he's sent to jail he won't be able to complete his work, though less talented doctors will pcik it upa nd take longer to finish it. If oyu let him off completely free (except being watched so he can't kill again), he'll finish his work and save mililons of lives. If you don't, others will finish his work, but slower, and millions of lives will still be saved, but anyone whose lung cancer is too far along will die without his immediate help. You can't let him finish his work and then send him to jail because his lawyer is too clever; it's either free-but-finish-your-job or I-hope-you-enjoy-capital-punishment.

    You may not remember me, but I'm the guy bitching about being stuck wiht Illusion for disguise/escape in MnM while the GM said I should only have one power or array (because Morph is OP even though eh said it was allowed).

    I found out that the character he aws comparing mine to (in terms of 'smooth' vesrus 'rough' constrcution, that was more powerful) was HIS.
