RAF Mission 9
Mountain ViewYour ground forces artillery positions on the slopes of Mount Kent have come under attack from four Pucara aircraft.
Destroy the four attackers before they can deliver their bombs onto the troops dug in on the Mountainside, then return to your new base at the San Carlos bridgehead. Destroy all four Pucaras.
The biggest danger facing you on this mission will be disorientation - the weather has closed in on the mountain and you will need to keep in the narrow gap between the ground and the cloudbase if you are to get on the tall of a Pucara.

My diaryJust when I was getting close to giving up on this campaign the skies cleared and it was on for young and old.
The mission starts you at low level heading towards the Pucaras. It's impossible to convey the sense of speed in a still image, but look at the ground texture in the centre right image. Now imagine that ground flying past at breakneck speed.
The ground textures developed for this package are very effective, it's just a shame I couldn't see more of them (the fog).
These images were taken in Microsoft Combat Flight Sim 2 on my Hercules 3D Prophet III Titanium 500 video card with full screen anti-aliasing enabled.
