Default The Hornets' Nest - F/A-18C campaign

The Hornets' Nest is a nine missions single player campaign for the F/A-18C over the Caucasus. This is a fictional campaign where you will have to conduct varied missions from A/A to A/G.

In just a few weeks, a group of insurgents has taken control of almost all the Georgian territory. Their claim is that oil resources should benefit to everyone.
However, this argument is considered by many countries as a pretext to take control on these resources.

Last week the insurgents captured the capital city and the regular government had to hide at Batumi which is the last major city that is still under the government control.
However, the insurgents are only 50 miles north of Batumi and may capture it in a day or two.
As a last resort, USA have sent the USS Stennis in the Black Sea to help the regular army protecting Batumi and to provide support to regain control on Georgia.
Only air support is planned and ground operations are let to the regular army.

The remaining resources of the Georgian army are small most of them have been captured by insurgents including MBTs, SAMs and aircrafts.
Insurgents have been able to use ground vehicles but air opposition is not expected yet.

A few important notes:

- The missions are balanced to be flyable with the currently limited capabilities of the Hornet (as per june 2019) so the missions may seem more easy in a few months.
- You should fly the assigned flight plan and you should follow your leader or the AWACS instructions because the missions use triggers. But you can change the payload and livrery.
- Sometimes you are leading the package, sometimes you are not.
- You are supposed to use the regular comm menu and sometimes the F10 menu.
- There is no voice-over for now.
- I hope you will have as much fun flying this campaign as I had making it.

The current up-to-date version is 1.11 (06/16/2019).

Suggestions are welcome of course.

Hi Bovsam,
Looking forward to flying your campaign. I too have created missions as you can read about in the thread above; The Prelude which also links you to a CASE III Qualification mission.



Sincerely,
Skyspin

just finished Mission 1.
Awesome and lots of fun/anxiety with target acquisition, AA refuel, and a trap.

One suggestion, the rescue helicopter is hovering on the left side of the ship right off the bow.
If you bolter, you have to nose over to avoid running right into him.

Hey, thanks!

Making the rescue helicopter go along with the carrier was not easy and I admit that it is still not so good. I will put that on the TODO list.

hi bovsan,

Well... I tried the first mission four times... On the first two, got acquainted with your style and the mission objective. On the third had to exit due to RL. On the fourth I did perfect, destroyed the HQ (not all cars, but both barracks and several adjacent tgts. Got all 4 mortars and rtb safely. Score 37 and results 0 (yep, ZERO).

On the fourth, after all that, the campaign said it was a failure and had no honor or whatsoever and ended.

I am sorry, but some trigger went bad on that...

I didn't like it... Sorry. Thanks for the effort anyway.

All the best,

Sydy

Hey Sydy,

Do you have some Tacview records or track files so that I can try to understand and to fix what went wrong?

Regards.

Hi Bovsam,

In fact I do have the Tacview file for the mission I flew.

I hope you discover what happened.

Good luck and all the best,

Sydy

I had the same thing happen. Maybe the trigger should be NO EVENT instead of ON DESTROY? **Edit: I just tested it using NO EVENT on the triggers and it worked for me now FYI.

Thanks for these missions!
