20 JUN 2021 Gauntlet-14

Post by Lion » Mon Jun 14, 2021 10:23 pm

The strikes you have been flying against ground Early Warning radar sites have helped to lay the groundwork for tonight's mission. You will lead a maximum effort package deep into Iran and strike a suspected chemical weapons research and production facility located near the Iranian town of Shiraz. Hopefully, your previous work will make this mission somewhat easier to pull off.

The carrier battle group will be launching RGM-109 Tomahawks prior to your departure to hit the tarmac and runways at Shiraz International to in an attempt to deny the enemy any remaining forces there.

A four ship flight of UAE F-16s will sweep ahead of your package and suppress any hostile radars emitting in the target area while another four ship of UAE F-16s set up a barrier combat patrol east of the strike route to intercept any response from Bandar Abbas. These flights are orbiting at WP2 - any of the Dealer flights just need to fly within 5 nm of this waypoint to push these flights to their mission area.

Our E-2 Hawkeye and a friendly Saudi E-3 will be airborne over the Gulf and will advise you of any incoming threats.

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

Happy Father's Day to the dads in the squad. Obviously, since it's your day you should get to do whatever you'd like - so suspect attendance won't be an issue. :1grin:
