At last....!!!!...fourteen missions into the campaign and we get to do a Carrier takeoff...break out the Carrier Ops checklist and go for it.
Given that the total flight time is only 10 minutes, don't take external tanks but do take a full internal fuel load. Take Mk-82 Snakeyes, Rocket Pods or Mk-84 Slicks.
At waypoint B turn on your AG Radar and search for the target. Break out the Air-to-Ground: Strafing checklists as you have a nice juicy convoy to attack!
