Capture Oil Rig
Deploying from the aircraft carrier with a special ops team, you are to covertly fly to the indicated oil rig. Your instrumentation will indicate to you when you are to fly below 100ft to avoid radar detection.
You are to fly under the oil rig and hover to enable the troops to deploy. Once deployed, you are to fly to a holding position of your choosing before returning and extracting the team once more from under the rig. On completion of pickup, you are to fly back to the carrier. Remember to stay below 100ft until you have put distance between your aircraft and the rig.
You are to insert a Special Forces team to the target area at LP (Landing Point) Alpha; once deployed, the team with search out and grab their target. On deploying the grab team, you will take off and loiter in the area giving over watch and waiting for the ground team's smoke signal so you can pick them up.
Once you have seen the smoke signal, you are once again to land at LP Alpha, pick up all the personnel and return to base.
Be aware that concurrently to you inserting your team, your wingman will be deploying a second team into LP Bravo.
Intel believes there are heavy defences in the area of the target, including armoured patrol vehicles with MMG and troops with SA.
Over watch/Convoy escort
You are to fly to the first waypoint and escort the convoy of four vehicles, giving over watch. Neutralise any threat to the convoy along their route, ensuring the vehicles arrive at their destination.
Once the convoy is safely in its new town, return to the FOB.
You have received by data link a series of three targets which must be destroyed as a priority.
Fly along the pre-planned route to the nearest village. Identify the marked targets and destroy them. Once the priority targets have been destroyed, you are to engage and neutralise any opportunity targets including reinforcements.
Intel has informed us that there is a HMG in the village and possible MANPADS held in reserve.
In this mission, you are to use all of your skill to approach the enemy-occupied village covertly to carry out a reconnaissance by using the clock ray method, in that you approach the village by use of stealth mindful of small arms ranges. Use your optics to search out the enemy, withdraw and move to your next position. Repeat until you have systematically circled the village.
We have already identified a tank at the check point and this should be ignored by you. You are to concentrate on locating and marking the three enemy positions within the village. The enemy are believed to have one pickup truck with a HMG mounted and two observation posts.
Once you have found a target, mark it using your optical systems and the target details will be passed back by data link.
