Tonight's mission will be a re-run of Op Deep Valley. Those pesky MiG-29s need to be taught a lesson!

Take off - 20:00 hrs Alpha.

I was planning to add a few more bandits to this mission, now that it has been proved. Sounds from all the above, as though that might be a bit premature. Wimps!

Haha bring em on.
I suspect they're being sneaky buggers and sneaking through the mountains and valleys though. We've been having problems finding them and they've a nasty habit of popping up all over the place

You credit AI with too much of the I.

They certainly don’t always follow the route set, but they are very bad at getting through valleys at low level.

One problem is that if flying in, say, echelon, the leader will almost invariably wipe off his wing-man by trying to go through too narrow a valley.

thats the genric training mission hes on about Alan.

However in my humble veiw you could add another flight of bandits to deep vally mission as 6 dont seem to be enough, dispit 1 SU 27 getting thru last week. sorry neil we did warn every flight that 1 had got thru.

That explains that. And there was me thinking that the AI really were starting to think for themselves.
