The fifth mission in the "Prelude" series. As invasion plans proceed, the US Navy and Allied forces continue to ramp up operations after "The Prelude", "The Initial", "The Resolute", and attack on Kuh-e-Shab Mountain". You're on ready alert. It's 2 AM. Report comes in that a guided missile frigate has become disabled on a reef after pursuing gunboats. Peppered initially by a few ground troops, spotter planes have just arrived and artillery and motorized armed convoys are expected to be called in to attack the disabled ship. With full moon conditions a quick strike is required. All efforts must be made to protect the disabled frigate from mechanized and emplaced artillery .
You are called upon to commit airstrikes upon units seeking to destroy the imperiled ship. Concentrate on the high powered moving convoys enroute to coastal attack positions. Fly way points to target and egress positions. Expect Case 3 recovery. Air threats could be possible against the ship.
