This is the last mission of 'Duke' Mitchell, the father of Pete 'Maverick' Mitchell of Top Gun fame. The mission is another take on the story told by 'Viper' in the movie.
In this mission, you will fly the F-14 over the Persian Gulf in an attempt to protect a diplomatic transport flight departing Iran. However, you cannot cross into Iranian airspace, and Iran isn't about to let the transport go. Can you defend the transport and make it home alive against all odds? Or will little Pete Mitchell grow up without his father, struggling without the knowledge of what happened that tragic day? You will decide.
The mission features random triggers which will adjust difficulty for replay value.
NOTE: This mission has been updated to fix catapult launches. A previous version had an older carrier (Carl Vinson) and pitched some aircraft into the sea. This is now FIXED.
