Default Operation Wax Wings

THIS MISSION SHOULD NOT BE LEFT RUNNING ON A SERVER; THE SERVER SHOULD LAUNCH PAUSED. ALL PILOTS SHOULD ENTER THE SERVER AND STAND BY AT THE BRIEFING SCREEN. WHEN ALL PILOTS ARE PRESENT, UNPAUSE THE SERVER AND ENTER THE COCKPIT. CAP TASKING WILL SCALE TO THE NUMBER OF F-15 PILOTS PRESENT
0 pilots = no A-A tasking, 1-2 pilots = light A-A tasking, 3-4 pilots = heavy opposition.


2 skilled striker pilots may be able to successfully complete this mission, but 3-4 strikers are recommended.

This mission supports up to = 6xA-10C, 4xF-15C, 4xF/A-18C, 4xKA-50, 2XSu-25A, 2xSu-25T, 4xUH-1H, 2xMi-8MTV2, 2xSA-342M, 2xM-2000C, 4xAV-8B

BRIEFING:
Over the past several weeks, ISIS forces have been conducting widespread raids on Syrian military bases in the Aleppo region.
Thoughout the course of these raids, ISIS have captured a massive stockpile of weapons and ammunition, as well as armored vehicles and several Syrian jet aircraft. Though satellite images show most of these aircraft to be very old and not in operational condition, witnesses report seeing MiG-21, MiG-23, and L-39 aircraft being flown on short training and pattern flights out of al-Jarrah airfield near Aleppo. Intelligence sources indicate new ISIS pilots are reportedly being trained by former Iraqi Air Force officers.

While ISIS has not yet taken any offensive actions,the President has authorized a preemptive strike on al-Jarrah airfield in light of the danger ISIS-flown fighter jets could pose to coalition forces in the region.

The Syrian government, its military stretched thin battling with rebel forces and ISIS insurgents, has attempted to reopen dipolomatic relations with the US. As a gesture of good faith, they have allowed the exclusive short-term use of Hamah Military Airport for this operation.

Our AWACS and its escort, along with your planes, are presently being checked and refueled from the trip from Turkey. As soon as they are airborne, your flight will take off and strike the ISIS airfield. Due to the mountainous terrain surrounding our airfield, ground RADAR is largely obstructed below 10,000 feet. For this reason, our AWACS flight and its escorts have priority takeoff.

An Apache flight and its FAC are currently inbound from a successful engagement with ground forces to the North.
Predator flights LITTLEBIRD (Hamah/SOCHI region) and WHISPER (al-Jarrah/MAYKOP region) will provide overwatch throughout this operation.

COMMS:
DARKSTAR (AWACS) : 251.000 MHz


TASKING:
SWINE (A-10C)
FROG (Su-25T )
WOLF (AV-8B)
CHEVY (M-2000C)

ISIS forces have recently raided several Syrian installations, seizing military vehicles and equipment.
We received word this morning that their most recent target was a supply depot containing spare aircraft parts and ordnance.
Destroy the enemy anti-air systems surrounding al-Jarrah airfield and disable any fighter aircraft that appear to be operational.

WP1- Depart 15,000 ft.
WP2 - Fence in 15,000 ft.
WP3 - Destroy ISIS jets and anti-air defenses
WP4 - Egress, 15,000 ft.
WP5 - Approach

COLT (F-15C)

Enemy forces appear to have restored a handful of jets to some semblance of working condition. Their recent supply depot raid may mean that more jets have made ready. Provide escort for SWINE flight, and TARCAP over Al-Jarrah airfield.

WP1 - Escort SWINE flight, 15,000 ft
WP2 - Begin TARCAP 15,000 ft.
WP3 - Continue TARCAP while SWINE engages targets 15,000 ft
WP4 - Egress, 15,000 ft
WP5 - Approach

SHARK 1 (KA-50)
PEDRO 1 (UH-1H)
SHOOTER 1 (SA-342M)

Your flight is tasked with maintaining readiness in the event that enemy forces attack our airfield. There is ongoing combat in the region between ISIS forces and the Syrian government, so maintaining a strong perimeter guard is vital. Logistics center (for CTLD) is located near the West Apron.

WP1 - Western perimeter
WP2 - Southern perimeter
WP3 - Eastern perimeter
WP4 - Northeastern perimeter
WP5 - Northwestern perimeter

SHARK 2 (KA-50)
SHOOTER 2 (SA-342M)
PEDRO 2 (UH-1H)

Launch from the nearby coalition FARP to the Northwest of the target area and assist SWINE and FROG flights with dismantling enemy air defenses, troops, and vehicles. Logistics located at FARP Dallas, as well as a FOB near the AO (check your kneeboard for additional information)

WP1 - Loiter near target area, wait for SAM sites to be destroyed
WP2 - Target area, destroy ISIS vehicles and equipment.
WP3 - Return to base



THREAT:

ISIS forces have seized Syrian military assets of an unknown quantity and nature. They have been known to employ SA-18 Igla MANPADS, ZU-23 emplacements, and ZSU-23 Shilkas. Additional missile defense systems may have been seized.

We are expecting heavy resistance near al-Jarrah (MAYKOP-KHANSKAYA) from any operational enemy aircraft as well as ISIS ground units.

L-39, MiG-21, and MiG-23 aircraft may be armed and operational.

INTEL:


THE AO

We also have some images captured from our reconnaissance drone's TGP of the target area. These images were captured approximately two hours prior to your projected arrival in the AO.

This mission uses MiST, CSAR, and CTLD; thanks to Ciribob, Speed and Grimes for their efforts!

This op has been carried over from 1.2 and, hopefully, finally fully debugged for 1.5.

It was created before the Mirage/Gazelle/etc. were available so these modules are not present, but editing Shark 1&2 to an M or L model and editing Eagles to Mirages is an option of desired. Be sure to keep the original flights or triggers will break.
You can add any additional airframes desired as long as players occupy trigger flights (Eagles for CAP tasking, Shark 1 for gunship tasking, Hogs or Frogs for CAS tasking)

Please leave a post if something doesn’t appear to work as intended!
