Daesh has been gaining in strength in the region in a very worrying manner. It is thought an unknown benefactor is providing unheard of military resources and command infrastructure guidance. The Stennis fleet has been brought into the area complete with a contingent of F18C Hornets to contain this threat.
Unbelievably Intel have picked up today that two submarines are being procured for Daesh. Who knows what for? They are currently in harbour, in a known location 50 miles away, but will be submerged within the hour. Although not in accordance with protocol, given the time factor, you have been tasked with leaving immediately to intercept and destroy both submarines. Your single F18C is armed with 4 Mark 83s, Aim7M, Aim120 and Aim9X.
It is understood Daesh are being trained to take part in the use of the subs in a camp deep in land. Military satellites are currently looking for its location. Time is of the essence.
It is early evening and unusually for the region there is some rain in the air. Your Hornet, call sign "Ford", is hooked into Cat 2 and awaiting clearance. Razor, in Cat 1, is ahead in the flight schedule and is about to leave for Khasab. You watch Razor anxiously as you are keen to commence and execute your mission before the evening light fails.
