I will fly an A-10, unless there is an F-18 slot vacant.

Longer term, I am adding to this mission to include 2 separate F-18 tasks: the current one, but launched from Batumi; and a LL airfield attack, from the carrier (until such time as we get a carrier that can take more than 4 aircraft, without them tripping over each other. The airfield attack is to take out the Mig-21s before they get airborne.

I will also make the number of A-10s targets variable according to the number of A-10s flying on the sortie.

sorry about that hog,
i lost mutley shortly after take off so had to take out all 6 on my own.
i also had no teamspeak and couldnt transmit on srs either although i could hear everybody loud and clear.
the phoenix seems to be very unreliable bvr all of a sudden (still works in acm mode though).
i took out the 1st 4 migs then i was winchester and had to VERY QUICKLY rtb for rearm and refuel.
by the time i was topped up the mig29s had taken off and were 120 miles away!.
full scramble as fast as possible and i just couldnt take them out bvr. i shot at them to get them off the a10s as much as anything else and then got close enough (sub 10 miles) to send them phoenix in acm mode.
sorry if they took any a10s out i just couldnt cover that much ground alone fast enough

Not a problem John, Boar flight only got harassed by the Mig-29's after most of our targets were destroyed, we all bugged out and safely RTB'd, as far as I can see, out of the 5 A-10 that took off, one didn't return, I don't know if he was shot down or had to leave because of a technical issue.

A good night for all. Once the F-18s had taken out the Tunguskas (in very short time!), the A-10s were able to fill our boots! Thanks to our gallant F-18 and F-14 comrades.

We left just 4 tanks one ZSU, and 2 Iglas alive, out of a total of well over 50 ground targets. One only one A-10 lost, and that was due to his going gun-to-gun at low-level against a tank situated less than half a mile from the last ZSU!

I just wish I could stop my game from crashing the moment my tyres touch the runway.

I landed behind you and you formed a very symbolic crucifix standing on the runway
