Clearing the Way, 2021 (Abandoned Scenario)

Post by BeirutDude »

I abandoned this scenario as unworkable...


This scenario started about two months ago as a sandbox, created when talking on the forums about a hypothetical PRC-USN/JMSDF War and possibilities surrounding the PRC IRBMs/ASBMS. One thought I had was could the USAF use its stealth aircraft to take out those missiles early in a war (or prior to in a first strike). This was my attempt to find out. This is only one part of what would be a larger operation, but a vital part. Your mission is to fly deep into the PRC and take out the DF-26 ASBMs.

After folks tell me how they've done I'll tell you how I did! [&:] [&:]

BTW in my opinion the PRC air defenses could be understated in this scenario.

OK i took the challenge[:)]

Spoilers ahead!!

I send my Spirits south, as I didn´t think it would be possible to navigate them through the gap between China and Russia.
After refueling just south of Taiwan, I penetrated west of Hainan and killed a few long range low frequency radar, as they are capable of detecting me.

After that it was pretty easy to reach launch range of the DF-26 targets.
My only problem was the insane airdefence around the target launchers, so I only managed to kill a few launchers.

I will try again tomorrow.

Nice one Beirutdude[:)]

I've spit them up and few in NOTE, that worked well. The one time I flew in high in a group I got butchered.

Worth taking out the ADA with one or two Spirit load outs if you can.

Anybody else try it? Worth posting?

Hi BeirutDude.
Noticed that the USAF side's awareness is set at "Autoside and Unit ID"

Yes, the S-400 are very effective to knock down my JASSM. I took a well planned route for JASSM, S-400 sites didn't detect them until 11nm away, but then they knocked out 43 JASSM, I only achieved one hit.

Hit save and will continue tomorrow, see if I can pull out safely

****************************
continue from yesterday's save. Pull out process had some drama. It was already a dawn time, 2x J-11D got into less than 80nm range with B-2s. Due to their AESA Radar, the RWR on B-2 didn't pick up the signal until 90nm away, so I have to change the flight to NOE for a while.
Brought everyone back to home safely, ending score at 0

I made the breach at the coast between Hong Kong and Haikou. Followed the route through Guiyang --> Chongqing --> Tian'Shui (the area between Xi'An and Lanzhou)

I noticed that at 30N 102E, there is a reference point mark left there with "SAM Bn S-400" so I avoided Chengdu area. But in RL Chengdu area should be one of the heavily defended zone. There are several nuclear weapons research/manufacturing facilities in Mianyang.

That was just from the previous sandbox play. If I submitted this, and likely wouldn't I would clear that. Takes a Lua script to do so.

I had similar results with only one hit in one play through. Had another were all fur B-1As were shot down.

I played this several weeks, maybe a month ago. I was able to destroy 3 of the 4 ASBM sites with the 4th damaged about 50%. As others have mentioned, I entered Chinese airspace in the south, flew north with the B-1's spread out individually and more or less weaving around radars, SAM's and air bases. Exited the same way. Almost lost the AWACS as it got a little too close to the Chinese coast early in the scenario. No US losses.

Nice, quick scenario that needs some micro management.

Thanks! I might clean it up a bit and submit it. I figure with the low number of aircraft micromanaging as the way to go.

I am confused. I checked the map at 40 N. 106 E. and nothing is there. I cannot find the PLA rocket force DF Dash 26 brigade. I have even put a reference point out that spot in the picture below. Do I have to locate these when I’m actually making an attack? Are they hidden?
Thanks

Tom, I'm confused myself. To be honest I'm sorry to have wasted your time as I abandoned this scenario as unworkable. I'm not sure why the DF-26s could have disappeared (Database change????).

No problem. It looked interesting as I'm working my way through the level 1 scenarios. If you ever get it working again, please let me know.
