Welcome to my 8th mission and my first mission for a fixed wing aircraft.

Operation Rescue under fire is loosely based on the Spanish movie "Rescue under fire" and lets you participate in what the AV-8B N/A was designed for - night attack.

The story:
A Humvee of an armoured patrol struck a mine near the Omani town of Hansi. A medevac CH-47 was dispatched to the site, but it rolled over due to hitting soft ground upon landing. Thankfully this did not cause any further casualties.
Problem is, we are not supposed to be in Oman, so central command decided to retrieve the helicopter. Insurgents are threatening the crash site and the troops on location are in urgent need of close air support.

Involves night flying, night attack based on IR pointer target designation, adherance to ROE, avoidance of collateral damage, night/dawn midair refueling. Persian Gulf map is required.

Transport capacities are on their way, but will not reach the site before afternoon.
The situation is getting tense, as a drone detected local insurgents gathering nearby our units.

Your task will be to provide close air support. You can check in with GREYHOUND, as soon as you are in Oman. They have a sniper team LYNX dispatched in the mountains, they can provide target information and paint potential targets using IR. Follow the radio instructions and use your F10 comms menu to communicate with GREYHOUND and LYNX.

Rules of engagement are tight - you are required to have positive ID on your targets. Do not, I repeat DO NOT inflict collateral damage.
Before engaging vehicles, perform a show-of-force low pass.

Your armament will comprise two ZUNI pods and four Mk 20 Rockeyes. Use them wisely!
Good luck!

Night flying and aerial refuelling skills are mandatory.

Mission contains 24 custom voice overs. Enemy threat is randomized and also dependent on your performance. This ensures flying the mission a second or third time will not be identical.
