31 OCT 2021 Gauntlet-29

This entire offensive's forward momentum, like any landing, is totally dependent on its supply lines, and currently there is a group of freighters passing back and forth from Bandar Abbas to Abu Dhabi. While Saudi and U.A.E. military forces combat the Iranians on the land, our goal will be to sever the Iranian supply line, then to attack the force directly.

Now that we have hammered their shipping and nearly severed the supply line between Iran and its invasion forces, it is time to attack their army directly.

For tonight's mission, we are going to attack a group of Iranian infantry fighting vehicles moving up the U.A.E. coastline towards Dubai. If it were not for your previous efforts in attacking Iranian supplies, this would be a group of Iranian main battle tanks instead. The approximate position of the force we are looking for is between Abu Dhabi International airport and Al Maktoum International airport (waypoint 2 and 3). Once you arrive at this area, you should search that area for the vehicles you should hit. If they are not in the immediate vicinity, they will be just a bit north or south along the coastline, on the main national highway.
Taking this unit out will weaken the Iranian thrust northward, maybe even causing it to stumble and pause.

Before you arrive on target, a package of Saudi F-15C Eagles will make a sweep through the area to help thin out any fighter cover that might be in place.

Our E-2 Hawkeye will be airborne over Qatar and will advise you of any incoming threats.

Tankers are airborne, but they will be limited to operating within protected airspace over Qatari territory.

Surface Threats:
Probable ZSU-23-4 Shilka accompanying enemy targets.
Probable S-60, ZU-23 AA sites distributed among map-marked hostile territory.
Probable SA-18 MANPAD sites distributed among map-marked hostile territory.

Air Threats:
Possible F-14A fighters on air interdiction missions.
Probable MiG-21 fighters on patrol.
Probable AH-1W Cobra attack helicopters escorting enemy targets.
