The enemy is moving an illegal shipment of cargo on a train from one underground location to another storage facility deep inside a mountainside. The train will be exposed for a limited time before it goes back underground into the mountain. You must get to the train and stop it before that happens. All with voiced instructions from your flight leader and base command.
They will have mobile AAA and Sam's along the train tracks for the length of it's run, so it's mostly low and fast while looking for the train along the tracks. Your primary mission is to focus only on the engines to stop the train. That way, when you leave the target location, they can not move the train cars latter. After the engines are destroyed, the cars and their cargo will be destroyed in a second attack as part of your second mission. So your first mission is to just stop the train and destroy all engines with rockets, then get out!
You'll then land on the Stennis carrier group and change planes for your new mission. Assisted by a harrier group and three other Hornets to eliminate any ground threats, your new airship will be loaded with cluster bombs to incinerate the train cars. The mission now is to destroy the entire train.
The initial challenge for you, will be destroying SAM radars with your cannon, going head to head with Mig 29's in an air battle consisting of a couple dozen blue and red coalition aircraft, and getting the train to stop so you can destroy the engines, then getting onto the carrier, all under a time and fuel limit. As usual, plenty of sounds and some surprises. This is more of an intermediate challenge and the default script can be optionally made more complicated in the Radio Coms Menu. So once you get the default challenge mastered, you can up the anti.
