MiGMan's Combat Diary

Aircraft: The briefing suggests the F8-J Crusader. I suggest you stick with the F4-J Phantom II. By staying with one aircraft type you will get used to its' handling characteristics.

Mission Map: I recommend you simplify the flight plan as shown. Make waypoint C "MIGCAP" as well.

Load Ordnance: The mission starts in the air, but near the carrier, so remove the 2 external wing tanks to simulate a realistic fuel load at this point in the mission.

The mission starts earlier than briefed...it's about 5 minutes before sunrise.

  • Activate the link to the E2-C Hawkeye Shift-A
  • Set your AA Radar to RWS (50 miles)
  • Check the map Shift-M to detect incoming bogies

Mission Failure will be adjudged if you let any of the A-6's get splashed, and if you quit before they finish their waypoints.
