30 MAY 2021 Gauntlet-11

Post by Lion » Wed May 26, 2021 1:25 pm

In anticipation of possible future air strikes deeper in Iran, you have been tasked with the destruction of a known Iranian Early Warning radar complex near the coastal village of Bandar-e Tahari.

The complex is protected by at least one known SA-15 Gauntlet SAM and a battery of S-60 AAA guns.
Furthermore, there is a known fixed SA-2 SAM site southeast at Nay Band that will need to be suppressed prior to attack on the primary target.
There is another SA-2 SAM site 25 nm north of the primary target protecting another EWR station, however that should not be a factor unless mission aircraft stray too far north.

Our E-2 Hawkeye will be airborne and will advise you of any incoming threats. Iran is not expecting strikes on their air defense network so far west out here and only have a token deployment of MiG-29s to Shiraz International. The strike should be complete before any interceptors can engage your flight.

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