Iron Eagle - How it Should Have Ended

Recommended Posts

Have you ever watched "Iron Eagle" and thought it was ridiculous? You know, the idea that a pair of American F-16 could invade the airspace of a reasonably-equipped middle eastern country and survive after bombing multiple targets and fighting a squadron of opposing fighters.


Anyway, this is your chance to rewrite the ending to the movie.


You will fly the Mirage 2000C, leading a pair of less-experienced pilots on a training mission when the American intruders are "picked up on radar." What happens next depends on your skills.


Good luck!

Just for the sake of accuracy:


The F-16s weren't American (even if the actors were). They were Israeli.


And the OPFOR were also Israeli. Not Mirages 2000C but the "far cousin" F-21 Kfir, called Mig-23...

"The natural function of the wing is to soar upwards and carry that which is heavy up to the place where dwells the race of gods.

More than any other thing that pertains to the body it partakes of the nature of the divine." — Plato, Phaedrus.

Yes. That is understood. For this mission, I used American F-16s, as the movie suggests, and the Mirage was chosen because it is somewhat close to the Kfir. The movie even suggests the nation has purchased French weapons systems.


Regardless of the necessary differences, the mission is quite a bit of fun. Those F-16s are not easy to kill with just IR missiles and guns!
