MiG-15 003: Scramble

" You are readying for patrol when a US Navy Photo-recon plane performs a low pass over the airfield. You are required to scramble immediately, and shoot it down.

The Photo-Banshee is overflying at around 400Kts and 4000 ft altitude, but will then climb to 10,000 ft for the getaway. Once you've left the runway, the trick is to get as fast a climb rate as you can, but still maintain acceleration. If you build up speed too quickly, you'll overshoot before you've got to altitude, and you'll come up in front of him.

Fortunately, being the Photo-Banshee he has no guns, but you don't want to be circling around to try and get on his tail, when you already start off on his tail. Once you are behind him and at co-altitude, you'll have no trouble overtaking him with your capability for greater speed, but make sure to use your throttle and airbrake judiciously to prevent an overshoot before you get the chance to pump him full of lead.

You should catch up and kill him before you hit waypoint 1, but there's a sting in the tail, because two Banshees are waiting for their buddy at that point. Not only are they fully armed, they're mad as hell that you shot him down.

If your dogfight with these guys stretches too long, you'll get back-up from two of your own buddies, but you don't want them getting all the glory, do you?

Once these Banshees are downed, you may complete your waypoint path and land at P'Yonggang, or press X and warp through your waypoints as previously detailed. "
