13 JUN 2021 Gauntlet-13

In anticipation of future air strikes deeper in Iran, you have been tasked with the destruction of a known Iranian Early Warning radar complex deeper nearby the town of Farrashband.

The complex is protected by at least one known SA-15 Gauntlet SAM.
Furthermore, there is a known fixed SA-6 SAM site 6 nm northwest near the town itself that will need to be suppressed prior to any close-in attack on the primary targets.

Primary target is the Early Warning Radar and two structures in the town that provide air defense coordination to the rest of the Iranian integrated air defense network, an IOC Tower and a command center, waypoints 5,6,7 respectively. HARM prebriefed codes for the EWR, SA-6, and SA-15 will be provided via the kneeboard.

Our E-2 Hawkeye AWACS is airborne and will be tracking any airborne threats. Due to the target's location close proximity (45 nm) to Shiraz International, a MiG-29A fighter response should be expected promptly, if they are not already airborne in the area by the time your strike package arrives.

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