Mission Four of Steel Winter - an ongoing Singleplayer missions project for A-10C's and A-10A's
Steel Winter is a series of interconnected single player missions for A-10A and A-10C pilots. This mission was built in Ver 1.5.4 release using the mission editor only, no additional scripting. No mods are required although Starway's Caucasus Textures 2.0 will give you much nicer Winter Scenery.
Since we arrived at Mozdok we have beaten back every attack by "The General" and have inflicted severe damage to his land and air forces.
It would now seem that he has had enough! Last night a large convoy of his vehicles was spotted leaving Nalchik airbase and another vehicle convoy is, at this very moment, departing from Beslan. Scramble to your A-10's that are armed and fueled, and standby for an in-cockpit briefing. "C" models are now equipped with our new found TGP's so use them to locate and takeout any air defenses in the convoys first.
Here's our chance to keep the General from relocating these men and this equipment to another area and continuing to terrorize the population. With a Predator drone to keep an eye on the two convoys, you must destroy every vehicle to complete today's mission. Begin by attacking the Beslan convoy as it is closer, then locate and attack the Nalchik convoy. Beware of the few remaining enemy fighter aircraft. You will have 3 wingmen and one AI F-15C to provide top cover for your attacks.

* Eric "Air" Hahn
* Glenn "Apache600" Lilley
* Sam "Hook" Johnson
** Do Not use my voiceover files in any other missions created for DCS. It's not fair to the hard work of the actors and to the hours I have spent to coordinate with the actors and to produce these voice files.
* Sorry but only the A-10A mission has been tested. If anyone finds any bugs in the A-10C version, please report them in the topic url given below.
In the .zip file I've provided two versions, one for A-10A and one for the A-10C. In each version you will fly with three AI wingmen and one AI F-15C to provide top cover for your attacks. At some point in the mission the F-15, callsign Pontiac, will become available for use with the F-10 menu.

Filename for A-10C mission: SteelWinterSingleC-4.miz
Choose your own settings to customize the difficulty for your skill level, although I have locked "Fog of War" on the F10 Map setting, and civil traffic at "low".
I hope you find this entertaining. This set of interconnected missions is being built out of love for the A-10A which we fly often in our group and, of course, I didn't want to leave out the A-10C's. I'll be posting more missions in this series as they are completed and tested.
