16 MAY 2021 Gauntlet-9

Post by Lion » Mon May 10, 2021 4:43 pm

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.

Today, we are going to hit a supply convoy that has been detected assembling at the Dehong ammo depots. A Tomahawk strike has been scheuled to fire at the depots shortly before your startup time. It is highly likely the convoy will move out once the depots are struck, so usage of ground radar and targeting pod is critical.

The supply convoy's expected destination is Bandar Abbas, which gives your flight approximately 4 to 5 hours to locate the convoy and destroy it. The convoy itself should have at least twenty vehicles in it, so take care not to waste munitions on any other military road traffic in the area. The actual convoy itself is expected to have at least some level of mobile air defence accompanying it, likely a combination of truck-mounted ZU-23s, self-propelled ZSU-23 Shilkas, SA-11 Gadfly TELARs, and SA-15 Tor vehicles.

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