Operation Longsword is inspired by the events of the 1983 evacuation of the US Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon.
The player will fly CAP in his F-14A Tomcat off the coast of Lebanon and ensure that the evacuation helicopters get in and out of Lebanon safely.
The mission provides an own AWACS, callsign Wizard who will provide all mission relevant data to the player.
Mission uses a lot of randomizations, so the experience will be different when flying the mission a second, third or even fourth time.
For a better immersion of the set time frame, the mission uses Heatblur's Forrestal carrier.
