Prelude:

22 September 1980, Iraq launched massive air strikes on strategic locations in Iran.
At 1:45 pm local time, 6 Iraqi MiG-23 Floggers bombed an Iranian airbase near Ahvaz.
Half an hour later, Iraqi MiG-23s attacked Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. At the same time the Iraqis also bombed 8 other major airbases in Iran.
However, having learned from the Six-Day War, Iran had built concrete bunkers where most of its combat aircraft were stored, thus the Iraqis succeed mainly in cratering a few Iranian runways, without causing any significant damage to Iran’s Air Force.

Now the Iranian Air Force started preparing for a counterattack which was to be launched the next day..

It is actually text from Wikipedia, from where i made the scenario. Should probably quote source in the scenario description..

Just finished this as Iran with most things working exactly as you'd expect. Not so sure on the scoring, I managed 80 points but it didn't give me a triumph or disaster etc.

The only area where things did seem to go strangely was Iran's own air defences. Some of my raids achieved a reasonable surprise, but the Iraqi aircraft were free to follow me back to base. I don't think the Iranian air defences were intended to be included. The issue was that as my planes were landing, various interceptors were picking them off. I suspect there needs to be an exclusion area, or if not the Iranian SAM sites represented?

Nice set of targets to hit and plenty of ordnance to do so.

Thanks for the review! I have a few issues to work with. Didn't put up and Iranian AD as I was expecting interceptors to follow. Should do something about that

You can get more detail about that on osprey "Combat Aircraft 37 Iranian F-4 Phantom II Units In Combat".

From Tehran Mehrabad 1st TFB only F-4E launched, usually F-14 base was 8th TFB in Isfahan.
Also Bushehr 6th TFB joint the operation with about 40 F-4.

Thanks for the input. Basically what I've done is taken the info from wikipedias page about Kaman 99 and placed Iranian forces accordingly. It may differ from todays placement of squads as this was in 1980.
