This is a work in progress campaign for the Hornet on the Persian Gulf Map using the Super Carrier. Inspired by recent events and the Tanker Wars, Oil In The Water tells the story of an escalating conflict between the US and Iran that is sparked by Iran's attack of two oil tankers with Silkworm missiles as they transit the Strait of Hormuz.
Recent events with Iran in the Persian Gulf got me inspired to make a few missions for the Hornet and also to read up on the Tanker Wars period of the Iran-Iraq war in 1987-1988. The result turned into a 16-mission campaign, with the first half roughly based on the Tanker Wars but with a modern twist. From there, the story will escalate beyond the 1988 conflict. My campaign is set in 2012, so the Hornet will have all its toys to play with.
**Requires the F/A-18C Hornet, Persian Gulf Map, and Super Carrier Module**
The plan is to release a 16-mission single-player campaign, along with 2-player co-op variants of every mission, and 4-player co-op variants of at least most missions. Each mission is fully robo-voiced.
This is a work in progress and I'm releasing it in chunks as I complete and play test them. This is the first thing I've ever published for DCS, and by far the most ambitious mission creation I've ever done, so I'm learning a lot as I go. Let me know if you encounter any issues.
-Missions 1 through 3, both single-player and 2-player co-op versions.
Major update and re-work. Now includes Single Player and 2-Player Co-Op Missions 1 through 7, an actual DCS campaign, and an update to use the Super Carrier Module.
