23 AUG 2020 Squadron Training

Post by Hedgehog » Wed Aug 26, 2020 7:00 pm

Following the completion of Operation Tomb Fist, VFA-41 was ordered to conduct training in live fire air-to-ground weapons and in-flight refueling.

Unfortunately, some factions of the Iranian military did not get the memo that this was sanctioned training. Several Iranian warplanes intercepted and attacked the VFA-41 Hornets, which were not loaded for a protracted air battle. Several aircraft were lost on both sides when the dust settled.
