12 JUN 2021 Rat Hunt

Post by Hedgehog » Sat Jun 12, 2021 2:31 pm

A flight of two Black Aces Hornets was tasked with locating and neutralizing anti-air defenses at a military compound deep in the desert of some country. Brief included special forces on the ground to launch flares to indicate the target was 'hot' and an HVT was present for extraction.

The flight ingressed NOE, remaining below 500 ft. to avoid EWR detection. An SA-10 site was encountered on the way in. 2x HARMs were launched with no effect. A manpad launch from the site damaged Dealer 1-2.

Approaching the target area revealed heavy AAA from the compound as well as an SA-6 site nearby. The SA-6 was successfully serviced with HARMs. No smoke or flares observed. Dealer 1-2 was shot down by AAA as he rolled in to drop GBU-12s. Dealer 1-1 extended to set-up to deliver bombs when a radio message was received that the HVT was escaping by helicopter. Dealer 1-1 switched to A-A but never spotted the helo, and was subsequently also shot down by AAA when he got within 1nm of the compound looking for it.
