Operation Ronin mainbrief

Chemical Weapons Plants have been discovered in several towns along the Southern caucasus mountain range. U.S. Special Operations Command is requesting coordinated strikes on 3 target areas. Intel indicates that the Chemical Plants are interconnected with a communications tower in the area.

**Both the plant, and the coms tower need to be destroyed within 15 seconds of each other to avoid emergency backup systems from coming online ** - this must be a coordinated strike with your wingman.

Each target at each target area is marked with its own WP in your nav systems. Targets are as follows:

Target Area 1
WP 1 & 2
Target Area 2
WP 3 & 4
Target Area 3
WP 5 & 6

WP 7 is landing

WP 8 (for those that have it) is for a Navigation Fix.

** Loitering in the target areas could also cause emergency backup defense systems to come online **
** Mission ends after Blue destroys all 6 targets OR 3 hours after first target is destroyed.
** Check F10 coms menu for active target areas.

Get In – Hit’em hard – Get out!

Currently limited to Viggens, Mirages, Fishbeds, Frogfoots.
