" Scramble and assess the intentions of the two groups of gunboats approaching the East Coast Fleet. If they show hostile intent you are permitted to retaliate.
Be alert for aerial activity and be prepared to support the Mustangs in chasing off Yak-9s.
|MiGMan's Combat Diary||
This mission has something for everyone - anti - ship and air to air.
The biggest challenge is knowing when to switch your focus from the
ships to the aircraft and vice versa.
My wingmen seemed to be handling the air threat quite well so I zoned in on the gunboats - taking pot shots at any Yak or MiG that was in range as I zoomed off a strafing run.
With the virtual cockpit zoomed out ( using the - key ) the sense of speed is exhilarating.
