Armed Recon Interdiction Strike
DATE: May 12th, 1972
Weather: Cloud Cover
Aircraft: F-4J Phantom II
Mission Map: Set Waypoints A, B, E to one altitude somewhere between 16 and 25,000 ft. Having too many different altitudes in a flight plan only unnecessarily complicates matters. The actual patrol sector is very short, about 3 miles. This mission profile is actually a point-to-point interdiction. At waypoint F set alt to 3,000 feet (below the cloud cover).
Load Ordnance: Load Rocket Pods and Snakeye's. You shouldn't need the external fuel tanks.
