Su33 Carrier Ops
(This mission was submitted elsewhere but I felt it to be bad forum manners to refresh that thread every time I updated the mission. Thus the new thread here.)
The outstanding new PFM flight model for the Su33 and the associated shipboard friction improvements made a need for a place to practice the new features. This began as just a Carrier (the Admiral Kruznetsov) and an IL-78m Tanker orbiting to the north. I have since added more stuff. You can either play the mission single player or host it for as a small co-op with up to 11 clients. If you just want to play around the boat and tanker, the bad guys to the north will patrol and bomb without harassing your flight. Should you wish to kill something, fly north as directed by AWACS and the fight will be on. The 2 Mi-8s can either play around the boats or slingload supplies back to the group.
Dusk Carrier and refueling ops.
5 Su33 slots at Batumi (Hot start on ramp, 50% fuel): WPT 1 = Carrier, WPT 2 = Tanker.
4 Su33 slots on the Kruznetsov (at launch, 40% fuel): WPT 1 = Tanker.
1 Mi8 slot on the Kruznetsov: (Hot start near bow. ENSURE NO LANDING TRAFFIC.)
1 Mi8 slot at Batumi (Cold start).
Two adversary flights of F-15s and A-10s will launch from Sukhumi and patrol west. Once they are down (killed or landed) two more will launch (F-16s and A-10s).
A few enemy vehicles are on the main road NW of Gali (Red Bullseye).
Mi8s can find cargo for the boats at Batumi (middle ramp).
Ammo -> Pyotr Velikiy
Container -> Neustrahimy
Bombs -> Admiral Krusnetsov
Be respectful of landing zones and the launch ramp when considering where to release the cargo.
