Default Gazelle mission

Hi, I am replaying the Red Flag campaign. I first completed it about 18 months ago.

Now on 2.5.5 release version.

The Gazelle mission, sorry forgot the number, but it's the escort Hogs into battle.

The Fencer intercept goes ok. Then vectored onto the Gazelles.

As before, the Gazelles are hellish to shoot down. But I noticed they don't shoot as accurately as last time. Nevertheless, I couldn't hit any of them. I fired three Magicks and missed each time. Number 4 magick "hung"? I couldn't get it to fire and couldn't jettison it either. Don't know if it's s bug or a pretty realistic error.

Anyway, after buzzing around the Gazelles for 10 minutes, the Hogs finish off the tanks. Previously, I recall that they would fly south and engage the Gazelles. This time I got a radio (F10) message to call Winchester and the mission would be a success. This call comes from the Hogs when initiated? So I called that in and flew back to Nellis. At truck stop the Hogs suddenly attacked the three remaining Gazelles, finished them off with Sidewinders (must lock better than the Magicks?). I then got the all clear to RTB and mission report from Hog lead.

The lateness of the Hogs attacking the remaining Gazelles seemed to mess up the last part of the mission.

On approach, I couldn't get "App" to activate. The PCA panel was locked in AA mode?

Just my twopenneth, there were some radio overlap problems also, with my flight (on channel eight, flight) overtalking others on ch2, package (red)?
