Thought I would give this one a go. Nice, quick scenario, ended with an Average score -1200 points.
Good stuff, thanks for sharing.
I just played it, and my tomcats were hammered pretty hard by those Foxhounds. Although launching Phoenixes at around 60nm, the MiGs just laugh at them. I lost 11 Tomcats... but all the ejected pilots were safely rescued (+50 points each)
I eventually killed around 12 of the Foxhounds, plus 3 Flankers and 3 Badgers, but mostly with Sparrows and Sidewinders.
How did you use the Prowler? how close was it to the action?
I had mine patrolling at a safe distance... It is unclear the effective distance for the jamming in the db.
For the attack on the ships, I used the 2nd Orion coordinated with the Intruders. The Orion, at low altitude, launched its 4 harpoon, which triggered the radars of the enemy ships. Them my intruders launched the HARMs and right behind the remaining harpoons. I score 1 ship, one of the DDs I think.
Later, almost at the end when they were in range of my cruise missiles, and seeing how many SAMs they had spent trying to stop my harpoons, I gave a try to an attack with Tomahawks. It worked and the Kresta had dinner with the fish (+3000 points)
Also I used the Tomahawks for land attack to destroy most of the land based radars. I noticed though, that I could not attack the airbases themselves... my guess is that it is a scenario limitation to avoid destroying the soviet aviation and its airbases.
