The Red Flag exercises introduced in the 1970s brought a new level of realistic training to the American air forces. This early Red Flag features the USAF’s fighter squadrons against highly trained Aggressors in a mission to attack a heavily defended target.

-Welcome to Red Flag.

-Today’s mission consists of an attack on a heavily defended POL storage facility. There are numerous fuel tanks and trucks gathered around. To simulate a chaotic environment, friendly forces have no access to any sensors beyond the ones on their fighters.

-The Aggressor defenses consist of a battalion of SAMs, a company of SPAAGs, and two squadrons of fighters from nearby airfields.

-You are to destroy as many fuel storage facilities as possible. Try to limit casualties, but remember that this is an extremely well-defended target. The Aggressor crews are very skilled.

-Good luck.
