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.
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.
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.
Search and Destroy
You are to search out and neutralise the enemy in 2 base locations. The base locations have been programmed into your navigation computer and will be indicated to you as way points.
You have an Artillery section allotted to you for your entire mission and fire can be called for via the data link by using the laser target designator. Time of Flight for fire missions will be indicated in the HUD display.
High priority and immediate threat targets can be destroyed using your onboard weapon systems.
Once both targets have been neutralised, return to the carrier.
