Biggest lesson maybe was that the CM's could really use an escort
That is a very good point. AAW, ECM and SEAD escorts to help them in.
Timing and routing of your TLAM strike is also critical. First punch a hole in his EW; find a thin spot in the radar coverage and then knock out anything that can see the route - watch for AWACS. Take a really good look at the terrain, TLAMS cruise at 200ft AGL so drive them behind ridgelines and other terrain, although that is tricky here as there isn't much. Night attacks are better than day as a TLAM flies so slow and low, ground units can see them.
When the attack goes in - jamming, jamming, jamming - and SEAD escort. Put an AAW attack in at mid altitude and coming from a totally different direction to draw off his CAPs - make it loud, obvious and powerful, but don't kill too much too early, or replacements will launch and may go for your TLAMs. Hopefully all you will need to deal with along the axis of the TLAM attack are Ftrs on intercept and SAMs - so a smaller AAW/SEAD escort running in at lower altitude and hanging back a bit - don't give away the game with the escort.
TLAM attacks are fun to plan and can be quite complex. Enjoy.
