Ran this one a few times, managed to finally nail the RORSAT on the second orbit past the coast. The satellite pass predictor isn't ideal for ASAT work, and I tried running it once in the scenario editor with the orbit display, which was probably too easy. Maybe put in reference points for the predicted orbit track and have them off by a few nm? That would be enough to require some careful position adjustment from the player.
Another thing worth noting is that the autoattack logic has no idea how to deal with an ASAT and will try to maneuver for a tail-chase course, even when the satellite is head-on. I ended up using manual launch and course corrections, which is more fun and challenging and probably the intended method, but it might be good to explain that in the side briefing.
Overall, great fun and possibly the only scenario I've seen that shows off the ASM-135.
Yes, this is definitely a "manual attack" only scenario. I will add that to the briefing. I will also add a RP indicating where the IP should be for the F-15 because in FL (fictional life not real life) Buns was told by the controllers where she had to be for teh intercept
