I might be wrong, but I’m guessing that you had in mind 4-6 or more in multiplayer mode? I sometimes play with a buddy, and we’ve had on more than one occasion, 10-12 enemy fighters on the map, in the air at the same time.

Maybe a menu item to remove or reduce the quantity of A/A threats in single player mode?

Again, thanks for a great mission.
I believe with a small number of human players, you should call for AI backup via the menu.

Glad I’m not the only one... I do like the action but even calling in escort/MIGCAP (as suggested above) I still have a hard time carrying enough AA ordnance, dodging SAMs and ultimately expending the limited AG ordnance I’m carrying.

That being said. I found the post in the other (Caucasus mission thread) about adjusting the SetSquadronCapInterval min & max intervals (I’ve adjusted them to be hours instead of minutes) so we’ll give that a try...

The mission grew what what I originally built as a Tomcat playground. I built in all the AI flights so that in single player all roles could be filled out no matter what you do. It is supposed to be hard. I don't imagine Iran (or Russia for Clear Field) rolling out the red carpet welcome so to speak. Yes I get toasted in my own missions, especially if I don't approach a target with the appropriate levels of respect.

I will tweak some numbers for spawn times for the next build and then see what I can do about putting in 'difficulty levels' or something in a later build.

I tried your mission today for the first time and only briefly, but oh wow!
My performance wasn’t great (vr, so my fault) and I’ve no idea how I’m going to get past the
SA 10 sites (im playing SP) but still, oh wow.
I can’t wait to try again, thank you sir this is brilliant

Just keep requesting SEAD support via radio and send wave after wave of your own men at the enemy SAM's, eventually they'll knock them out
