Mission overview

" The carrier Enterprise is anchored in the Tonkin Gulf. From this carrier the US Navy has been bombing crucial military sites in North Vietnam. It is time we sank the Enterprise. This target will not be easily destroyed, but well worth the effort. "

Background

" At the outbreak of hostilities, the United States had a total of 16 attack carriers and 10 carriers that had been converted for anti-submarine warfare. On August 7, Congress passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, giving the President the authority to commit American forces to war against North Vietnam. This was the beginning of a gradual escalation of hostilities that would continue for almost ten years. "

- Strangely the carrier was sailing without escorts, or tankers, destroyers or any other support ships!

There were a few Combat Air Patrols but I left these to my wingmen as a pummelled the Enterprise with my unlimited supply of rockets.
