From: Arnhem (holland) yes a bridge to far...
Jamming is one of the mysteries of the game, but I can tell you that more is ALWAYS better and the closer you'll get to your target, the better the results will be (until you get shot down of course). For maximum effect, switch your Growlers to the short range jamming load-out (five jammers) and keep at least two of them close to your strike AC (I generally keep them about five miles in front of the strike package) and you'll see much better SEAD results. With this load-out you'll be able to approach SAM sites to at least within 30 miles without problems. Also fire your AARGM's in large salvo's (I generally go for 3-4 missiles per target in this scenario and attack up to five targets at the same time) as the SAM density in this scenario is extremely high. It may sound paradoxically, but you'll probably get better results if you reconnoiter the SAM sites with a Growler supported F-35 first and then attack the SAM sites an masse (and I mean 30-40+ weapons) with the A model of the JSOW instead (again closely supported by jammers). As the radar cross section of the JSOW is smaller then the AARGM's radar cross section and its a subsonic glide bomb (so much more difficult to detect on infra red systems), its more difficult to detect and engage. Also because it has a cluster warhead, one hit does a lot of damage to the target whereas you need multiple AARGM missile hits to take out a target.
If you'll use these tactics, you'll even beat the air defenses in Black tiger V easily.
