21 JUN 2020 TOMB FIST M19

Post by Lion » Tue Jun 16, 2020 12:07 am

TIME: JUNE 21, 2020, 0524L / 0124Z STARTUP
WEATHER: Moderate dust at 2000 ft

W 10 kts surface, 14 knot gusts
S 4 kts 6600 ft
E 7 kts 26000 ft
29.49 inhg


SITUATION:
With the thorough degradation of Red Iranian airfields and air defenses on the island fortresses, Qeshm Island, and Bandar Abbas, NAVCENT is initiating the next phase of Operation Tomb Fist.

All combat squadrons deployed in theater, as well as long range assets based in Europe and at home will commence strikes on a multitude of high value infrastructure and military targets in southern Iran, including power plants, bridges, Iranian military facilities, and naval bases.


MISSION:
VFA-41 flights will launch on an escort mission.

A flight of four (4) B-52 strategic bombers have been tasked to strike Rajaei Port. VFA-41 will provide air cover for this package and ensure no enemy fighter gets close enough to threaten the bombers.

Due to degradation of airborne and land based early warning radars, Iran has changed tactics and are now maintaining around the clock combat air patrols, as opposed to scrambling interceptors at the moment of detection from missions past.

'Red' Iran has in recent weeks been reinforced with aging Su-27 Flankers, and still has an abundant supply of F-5 Tigers.

All mission aircraft have had their waypoints synced up with the COLT flight - WP1 at 0156Z will ensure prompt form-up with the B-52s.
COLT estimated time on target for Rajaei Port is 0240Z.
Mission complete criteria is survival of Colt flight to target area and safe return to UAE airspace. Colt flight landing destination is Al Dhafra airbase, but escort is not needed once inside friendly SAM coverage zones.

Note: UAE airports and airbases along the northwestern coastline are available for expedited land-based refuelling if necessary.
