19 May 2019 Ship Strike Follow-Up

Post by Shadow » Mon May 13, 2019 5:13 pm

TIME: May 19, 2019, 0900L launch.
WEATHER: CLEAR
LOCATION: Black Sea
Editor's Note: Don't miss WP4 by more than 3 NM. You can cut corners elsewhere to make up time.

MISSION:
Sink dry cargo ship IVANOV as it is loading illegal weapons and explosives.
Two Flights of F/A-18Cs will launch. CAP Flight will fly a high profile course along the coast line outside known threat range
to draw possible fighter response and provide top cover for Strike Flight to egress.
STRIKE Flight will fly NOE to stay undetected until reaching the Ops Area (WP 6) and pop up to sink the IVANOV at the pier.

SITUATION:
Rogue arms dealers are using their last freighter to smuggle arms and explosives to militant radicals. A previous
Strike Mission eliminated their other two cargo ships and tons of illegal arms that their customers are still expecting to be
delivered. The arms dealers have one more dry cargo ship IVANOV currently loading illegal arms in the Port of GELENDZHIK in an
attempt to satisfy some very nasty and unforgiving customers. Sinking it will put the arms dealers out of business,
permanently.

RECOMMENDED STRIKE LOADOUT:
4X AGM-65F
2X AIM-9X Sidewinder
2X AIM-120C AMRAAM
C/L Fuel Tank

RECOMMENDED CAP LOADOUT:
6X AIM-9X Sidewinder
6X AIM-120C AMRAAM
C/L Fuel Tank

TACAN:
NORTH STENNIS, 74X (ICLS 11)
COMMS, 127.5
BRC: 120

SOUTH STENNIS
COMMS, 133.5

4x F/A-18C, Dealer 1 (CAP): 305.00 MHz (This flight will start on Carrier#1 as identified in the player selection screen.)
4x F/A-18C, Dealer 2 (STRIKE): 306.00 MHz (This flight will start on Carrier#2 as identified in the player selection screen.)
2x F/A-18C, CAP XTR (This flight will start on Carrier#1 as identified in the player selection screen.)
2x F-14B, CAP (This flight will start on Carrier#2 as identified in the player selection screen.)
1x E-2D, Darkstar (AWACS): 266.00 MHz - PreSet Button 20
1x KC-130, Texaco (FUEL): 251.00 MHz - PreSet Button 18
TCN: 30X

BULLSEYE: Sochi-Adler Air Port

INTEL:
The IVANOV is currently docked and loading illegal cargo. The ops area (WP 6) is covered by a SA-6 SAM site about 8 NM
inland. The terrain to the coast is hilly and the SAM will likely not be able to detect a NOE aircraft. Possible mobile AAA
threat at the Gelendzhik Port. A hostile fighter response from nearby bases is very likely. Use caution identifying the target
ship as this area has local civilian tanker traffic.

"Don't miss WP4 by more than 3 NM."

Is that CAP WP4 or STRIKE WP4?

Both Strike Flight WP4 and CAP Flight WP4. Wandering into triggers would not help. Thanks for clarifying.
