Following a successful initial raid on an SA-2 Guideline battery defending Kibrit Air Base, VFA-34 has been fragged to destroy five MIG-27 aircraft in hardened shelters at the southeast end of the airfield (located at waypoint 2). While there is no SAM threat, you will encounter heavy radar-guided anti-aircraft fire (57mm and 100mm) over the target. Further complicating the strike, a pair of Russian MIG-23 Floggers recently landed at the air base. You will likely encounter them during your approach, so marshal your wingman appropriately. You will be carrying four GBU-16, 1000lb laser guided bombs to be used on the hardened shelters at waypoint 2, along with an AN/AAQ-28 LITENING targeting pod. It is recommended that you attack from medium altitude (15,000 feet or higher). This should provide adequate run-in for an accurate GBU delivery and minimize your exposure to the AAA threat over the target. Once your weapons are expended, proceed back to the USS George Washington.
