MiG-15 010: Close Air Support

" The North Korean forces have a large convoy of tanks and trucks heading towards the bridge at Kumch'on. Your mission is to provide top cover and prevent any attempts by the enemy to bomb the bridge or attack the convoy.

Your flight of four takes off from Sinmak and flies uneventfully south to Kumch'on bridge. Make sure you get to around 10,000ft to conserve fuel and don't waste any time getting there. Time is of the essence: A few seconds here or there can make the difference between whether or not the bridge is still standing when you arrive. Just before the bridge, you'll spot the convoy off to your right, but your attention will probably be grabbed by the flight of six F-51 Mustang bombers heading for the bridge and subsequently the convoy.

You shouldn't have too much trouble taking out the F-51's, four of them are configured as Bombers, so they will stay in formation and be sitting ducks - just throttle back, get on their six and watch them rip apart. However, two of them are configured as fighters and will peel off and dogfight you, but providing you watch your speed, it shouldn't take too much effort on your part to destroy them.

Flushed with success, you'll then continue your waypoint path back to the airfield, but will be jumped by two fearless Sabre Jet pilots who will try and run rings round you. Let's hope you've been conserving fuel, and have enough left to take on these killer jets.

Once the two Sabres have been downed, you may press X repeatedly to end the mission, or continue through your waypoints to land at Sinmak as previously described. "
