Having graduated Frontal Aviation's Fighter Pilot Academy with honours, you are ready to take control of a MiG in an operational theatre.
The first couple of days have you scheduled for short training hops. Take note of the local landmarks. There are a few lakes and prominent coastal features which will help orient you.

Good luck! Make us proud ! Nah-zdarohvya !

Mission 02

Location : Bagerovo AB near Kerch
Training - Air to Ground
Time : 0600
Briefing
Day 1 of your training.
Takeoff from runway 05 and
Fly to the range, attack the trucks with rockets and bombs

With object labels on you can see the targets from miles away, which is a good thing. It's entirely up to you whether you leave labels on or off. I tend to turn them off if things are going well, and flick them on if I've lost track of things... which happens a lot!
As the sim models it, which apparently is close to real world conditions, vehicle size ground targets are incredibly difficult to see from a fast moving jet.
Here's a trick which helps maintain immersion in the sim - tell your wingman to attack the ground targets with "Backslash - F1 - F1 - F5".
Then just fly towards the smoke and flames!

By the way that's my wingman doing the immaculate strafing run, not me !

Now I can see them !
