02 MAY 2021 Gauntlet-7

Intelligence has identified a large Iranian build-up of arms and supplies taking place. We are going to disrupt this operation by interdicting supplies, destroying key bridges, attacking ammo warehousing facilities, and disabling airfields that are responsible for the majority of the airlifting.


For today's mission we are going to hit the support facilities at the airfield proximate to Lar. The primary targets are the fuel storage tanks and ammunition depots. Cause as much damage to the target as possible, but be sure to confine your weapons release to the area of the target airfield to avoid civilian casualties.

Secondary targets of opportunity are any airfield buildings, parked aircraft, or military vehicles at the airport.

Because defenses at Lar 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 Emirati territory.
