MiG-15 012: Capture

" Moscow has been clamouring for an intact Sabre and you've just been handed one on a plate.

Separated from your wingman, you stumble on a lone Sabre, and discover that he is flying top cover to protect his downed buddy. A convoy of our own vehicles is in the vicinity, and the downed jet looks intact. This could be exactly what Moscow needs.

Naturally, you've radioed the situation to your base, so all you have to do is shoot down the patrolling Sabre Jet, and then stay on top cover until reinforcements arrive.

You start in the air alone heading south, with the patrol Sabre ahead of you. Beyond him is the downed Sabre, and a convoy of vehicles heading towards it.

You're on the flying Sabre's tail, but he spots you straight away, and circles around to meet you, and since he's an ace, you're going to have some fun trying to take him down.

However, you shouldn't waste any time, because within five minutes, two F-80 Shooting Stars called up from Kimpo will arrive, and that'll make three of them onto you if you haven't already downed the Sabre Ace. What is more, they may split up and make an attempt to strafe the convoy, or even bomb their own aircraft to prevent it being captured.

Fortunately, even if you can't get all three aircraft single-handed, at least if you can stay alive for about ten minutes, there will be four MiGs arriving to relieve you, and then you can head for home.

On the way back, two F-84e Thunderjets bounce you, and you have no back-up, so you'll have to take them out on your own. This shouldn't be too difficult, having just had some practice duelling with an Ace Sabre pilot.

Once the Thunderjets are downed, you may press X repeatedly to end the mission, or continue through your waypoints to land at Sinmak as previously described.

Well done Comrade, Moscow will be proud of you, and there's bound to be a cabinet-full of Medals for you now that this tour of duty is over! "
