Grinnelli’s F-22A mod is required. It’s available for download at: https://fsoutlet.com/f22/
You have a choice of flying the F-15C or Grinnelli’s F-22A on this air-to-air mission. You and your wingman can start hot on the ramp at Al Minhad AFB / Sharjab Intl / Khasab or in the air northeast of Sharjab at 35,000 feet.
At mission start 2 AI F-22s will scramble from Al Minhad towards Iran. After the initial scramble you must fly subsequent intercept missions yourself. As friendly aircraft enter Iranian airspace Iranian Mig-29s will scramble from Bandar Abbas to intercept. Iranian SU-25Ts will also begin SEAD operations against blue SAM sites.
You can fly intercept missions by selecting: Radio menu > Contact AWACS Darkstar 5-1 > request “bogey dope”
Once Iranian fighter aircraft are detected in the Bandar Abbas area, Command Center will activate and you can select: Radio Menu > Other > Command Center > Assign Task. You will be assigned an intercept mission and get a constantly updated BRA position report as you fly towards the target aircraft.
You can also pick other intercept tasks by selecting: Radio Menu > Other > Command Center > Mission Intercept Tasks > Join Planned Tasks
Look at currently planned tasks: Radio Menu > Other > Command Center > Mission Intercept Tasks > Task Reports > Report Planned Tasks
If you require assistance from other intercept aircraft: Radio Menu > Other > Request Intercept to scramble F-22s or F15s from Al Minhad (MIN) or Sharjab (SHA).
Escort missions available:
There are also 3 blue SEAD missions planned. Pick a SEAD mission and provide additional escort protection across the Persian Gulf to Iranian SAM sites. Radio Menu > Other > Air Tasking Request > Execute SEAD attack. Rendezvous with the SEAD package over Al Minhad AFB between 6000 and 7000 feet and escort to their targets and back.
