It is November 2015 and you are COUGAR 1, an L-37ZA pilot, who is part of a very small air detachment based at Deir ez-Zor.
Whilst your primary role is training new pilots, the past few weeks has seen increasing rebel activity in the area.
You have just received a phone call from the base commander ordering you to scramble to provide some air cover at a nearby milk processing complex. The factory is owned by a cousin of the base commander, so you best get there as soon as possible!
The guards at the factory have spotted some vehicles and men gathering at a small farm about 500m from their position. It seems highly likely that they are insurgents preparing for a raid on the factory.
