Today's mission we will be engaging a group of transports that are supplying a front line base in preparation for a strike on our forces.
German units have been building up for some time now and we are certain that a strike is imminent. Rather than using a counter-offensive we shall strike them first. The transports have been coming in on a regular basis and we are certain that with your advanced Mig 29 you will have no problem taking them out.
You will have the element of surprise for this attack---come through the valleys in the mountains and take out the transports as well as any escorts they will have with them.
We suspect that the ground attack could come at any time---we will keep you posted on an any further orders for the day.
"New World Order"
The year is 1977.
World War II did not end in a total victory for the Allies.
NATO never existed.
Germany was able to hold Russia at bay...but only just barely---The Allies were turned back at Normandy and only later once Russia became a dominant force in the East did the West make an alliance with Germany.
Tensions in the Eastern Block countries are at an all time high as satellite nations are torn between supporting their Russian liberators or joining the new factions in the West.
America does not want a full scale war with Russia---so it has refused to engage in Europe--however, it has been supplying arms and equipment to Germany which is locked in several proxy wars in the East.
These are perilous times---due to the nature of the ongoing conflict, fighter technology has been at an accelerated pace.
The MIG 29 advanced fighter/bomber is entering service after only one year of tests. You will be taking the jet into battle for the first time against inferior and older American aircraft. We are hoping this jet can turn the Germans back---and the ground offensive will follow them back to Berlin where we can finish them once and for all.
