27 JUN 2021 Gauntlet-15

Post by Lion » Thu Jun 24, 2021 9:20 pm

We are currently one of the most effective offensive units in the area, and the Iranians know this. If they feel their operations are threatened enough, we can expect the Iranians to make a play at knocking our carrier out of this conflict.

To that end, the operations has tasked additional combat air patrols around the carrier group to provide a barrier against any incoming threats, as well as additional escorts for our airborne E-2s and KC-135MPRS tankers.

Our E-2 Hawkeye and Saudi's E-3A will be airborne and will advise you of any incoming threats.
A KC-135MPRS is airborne north of the carrier group, in the center of all our BARCAP tracks.

Four missions have been scheduled for your squadron today. Separate Barrier Combat Air Patrol (BARCAP) tracks have been set up 85 miles north of the carrier group and 50 miles east of the group. These must have at least two airframes each assigned to it ensure acceptable mission coverage. Additionally, the RSAF E-3A and KC-135MPRS tanker have also slots open for airframes to protect them.

Marks are on the F10 map for the F-14s to set up as waypoints where-ever they get assigned to.

Expected threats today are Iranian Su-25 bombers, Su-24M bombers from the north and east, and possible fast attack missile boats from the east attempting to launch anti-ship cruise missiles.

Remain on-station unless winchester until 1745 local.
