From: Washington D.C.
I'm pretty consistently getting "Average" to "Minor victory." Some of it is luck (e.g. I might get more functional aircraft on one session versus another). I've never gotten a "Major Victory" or "Triumph." Like I said, this is intended to be challenging to me.
With any of the ground defenses (laser or otherwise), the big thing to do is mess with the WRA. What are you targeting? How much to shoot? How far away? Shooting closer in tends to improve your Pk, so that can compensate for shooting fewer missiles (e.g. 1 per v. 2 per). It also has the down side of minimizing your opportunities to re-engage and if you come in too close then your Pk is adversely effected by a bad crossing angle. I've got my set of decisions pretty nailed down, but other people might arrive at different ones. I'm always curious to hear what other people come up with that works.
The images are just Google Earth images of the airbase and the AEGIS Ashore sites, as well as a lot of the insignia for the units involved. It's kinda of big, though.
I like your idea of score keeping, I have been thinking about that a lot. Killing enemy units helps accomplish the mission, so giving points seems weird. I do like losing points for losing your own units, and either starting with points or getting points for successfully accomplishing something, which maybe is to destroy a particular enemy unit - like sa-10 or something.
Thank you, it's something I've been harping about for some time. I figured I'd put an example of it out there. I try to keep the victory conditions for scenarios more complex than just a tally of my losses versus the enemy's losses. That renders the score into basically just a weighted exchange ratio, and I'm not sure that's really interesting except in very small scenarios (basically few-on-few sorts of things). Instead, I try to make them reflective of a higher level commander's guidance, and the kinds of things they might be looking for. Obviously if they've committed the forces then they're willing to risk some of it, but don't lose too much of it either.
