25 APR 2021 Gauntlet-6

Post by Lion » Fri Apr 23, 2021 10:59 am

In an attempt to solidify their hold on the Gulf region, punish their neighbors for support of the US during the Gulf War, and to assert themselves as the pre-dominant oil supplier in the region, Iran has begun attacking oil platforms and shipping vessels trapped in the Gulf, especially oil tankers.

Our current role is to intercept as many of these strikes as we can, in addition to trying to eliminate the Iranians' ability to launch them in the first place.

The carrier strike group will switch its attention from enforcing the Iraqi no-fly zone in order to better respond to Iranian oil field and shipping attacks.

Iranian attack aircraft and helicopters are rampaging through the Gulf attacking anything not flying an Iranian flag. Obviously, this course of action can not be allowed to continue. Currently there are several neutral or friendly vessels transiting the Gulf that must be protected.

The primary target of today's strike is the Iranian airbase at Bandar Lengeh. This field is responsible for roughly half of the strike aircraft sorties that have been launched at the oil fields in the Gulf. To help eliminate the threat against the oil fields, your are to shut this field down. Principle targets are the fuel storage and ammunition depots.

Because defenses at Bandar Lengeh are expected to be significant, your flight is being assigned both SEAD and escort assets.

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