It’s a misty summers afternoon on the Stennis. The visibility at low level is not good and there is a 15-knot wind from the south. You, Ford, have just dropped into the cockpit of your Hornet f18C. You are about to carry out your Weapons Deployment Practice Sortie.
This one sortie will test your ability to deploy various weapons in various ways , the operation of the radio, the execution of JTAC protocols and the entry of coordinates for target locations both whilst on the ground and flying, You will need to navigate in poor visibility caused by low level mist using Tacan, Runway headings and ( in the case of the carrier only) ICSL. This whilst landing both at a land base ( for rearming and refuelling) and returning to the carrier. Oh, and there will be a cross wind at the air base, and you never no there could be an airborne interception !
