Think this one is ready for Playtest. It is a force degradation mission so points are awarded for destroying Ukrainian assets and lost for loosing Russian forces (the Russian Air force is having some numbers issues so loosing aircraft hurts in the long run). So if that is not your thing, thanks for your consideration...

The Time Is: 1 June, 2021, 09:00 Zulu/12:00 Kiev Time
Playable as Russia Only
2 Days, 6 Hours Duration
Built under C:MO v1.02 – Build 1147.23
Database: DB3000 v488
Background: In March of 2021 Russian forces began to build up along the Ukrainian-Russian Border and in the Crimea. In late April Russian President Putin announced the Spring exercises were over and Russian forces were pulling back from the border areas, but it was just a Maskirovka. In fact, “Little Green Men” were infiltrated into the Donbass and Luhansk Oblasts and key Russian forces never returned to barracks. The plan was to seize the Ukraine up to the Dnieper River in a rapid assault but first, taking a page out of the Desert Storm air campaign, two days would be allotted to the destruction of the Ukrainian Navy, Air Force and Integrated Air Defense System (IADS) by the Russian Air Force and Navy.
Mission: Your mission is to destroy the Ukrainian ability to resist a ground invasion by destroying their Air and Sea defenses.
You have six hours to ready your fighter/multirole/attack aircraft and attack helicopters. Bombers, with 20-hour ready times, I have loaded with likely load outs (including nukes).
I do not set the WRA for the human player. What I think it should be set to you might not. Thus, it is up to you to tweak it as you see fit. The WRA settings for the A/I have been adjusted.
Action should begin around 20-21:00 local time. Sunset in Donetsk is 20:20 local time 17:20 UTC.
NATO will not intervene in this scenario; the Ukraine is on its own.
You may use nukes at your discretion. In my personal opinion they are not necessary, but they are available. If nukes are your thing, have fun.
Scoring: 0 points = Disaster and 12,000 a Triumph.

I was Navy, but Assigned TAD to the 24th MAU Hq in Beirut. By far the finest period of my service!
