This maybe the 10th time I've done this mission with a 50% result each time.


I take off, I follow the flight plan, I bomb the radar, my wingman explodes in full flight as soon as the radar is hit, I launch my rockets on the remaining targets, I take the way back, I receive the message "beeper..." then the message that my wingman is fine and that he is heading north, I land and stop at the parking.

 

Score 50% with 80 to 90% of targets destroyed.


What did I forget to do, what's wrong with this mission?

Any chance you can send me a track or a copy of your mission results? It looks like you are doing everything right. You have to destroy more than 80% of the SAM group. That includes the launchers and the trucks parked. 

 

Cheers,

Indeed the mission is successful if the destruction rate is higher than 80%.
I replayed it last night with 100% destruction and this time the mission is successful.

 

I apologize for the inconvenience.

 

Personally I find that 80% is a bit exaggerated. With an F-18 I would like to, but not with an F-5. Especially considering that the wingman never help on this one. He simply doesn't execute any of my orders but this is probably a ED problem.

I'm glad it worked, think about the early days of the YGBSM squadrons, when they went against SAM's with nothing but bombs and rockets. The way the units are grouped it shouldn't be that hard if you plant your bombs right. 

 

And, nothing to apologize for, if I can help it's all good. This is my first campaign, I'm learning from you guys, the one flying a whole lot. So, it's all good.

I'm not sure if this is your problem or ED's but the wingman is useless on this mission. I have tried every attack command and he won't engage any target.  Then he flies off almost back to base and is shot down by a non existent SAM, (this might be intentional, not sure) or sometime flies off to the north and says he is OK but is still no help attacking the target.

 

Also I think there is a copied over voice over that I get sometimes about, the skies are clear and it's raining migs, but I don't get any migs.  I've checked the trackview and don't see anything.  I know that I heard this line on an earlier mission so I'm guessing it just got copied.

 

And something else I've noticed through all the missions I have played so far, the triggers seem a little tight around waypoints for a plane without any GPS/INS nav.  I know personally I occasionally miss them, it is usually just a voice over so not a huge deal but I thought I would throw that out there.

 

Thank You for the campaign I have been hoping for something like this for the F-5

The wingman should be dumb on this one. Dumber than the usual. I tried to put the waypoints closer to visual reference points that are easy to recognize, like lakes and cities, or clear spots in the forest. I don't want to spoil anything, but the wingman doesn't make it. You can always drop a carrot on the map if you loose your way and get your bearings, I know it's not fair but in RL you would get a bearing or a location from a radar station or from your airborne radar.
