Note: I'm not making any claim of authenticity for weapons employment/performance, tactics or doctrine. Indeed, NATO doctrine discourages the use of laser guided weapons in an target area covered by enemy SAMs because of the medium altitude requirement for weapons' launch. In this scenario, I launched my LGBs from an altitude of 12,000 m.
|The two laser guided bombs impact and sunk the landing craft Ondatra. The clean impact of the weapons was a great relief because the vessel was moving at a speed of 5 kt. Not a single missile is fired from the Russian warships.|
|The two F/A-18 Super Hornets are now RTB, somewhat under pressure from incoming Russian fighters (red and yellow icons). The SAM battery at Senaki airbase has started launching Patriot missiles (blue icons with an "M").|
|One lone Su-27 temporarily escapes the onslaught but eventually a Patriot missile catches up with it. Both F-15s are winchester are returning to base.|
This fake war will carry on in one form or another. Stay tuned.
