US army forces are defending a small island outpost in Georgia guarding a bridge-head near the FLOT. They are in contact with hostile groups of light armored units west of their position, across a river. Two flights of 2 x F/A-18C (Colt 1, Colt 2) are tasked to fly to Army outpost and provide CAS as directed by AFAC Pointer. Fly lead for Colt 1 flight, launching from USS Stennis off Georgia coast. Form up with Colt 2 at WP 1. Fly to IP at WP2 and beware of SAMs along your route. At WP2 JTAC Pointer on the bridge will make visual contact and direct your attack.
