A spectacular high speed intruder intercept mission
for the Mirage F1CZ-206 requiring split second timing and precision
navigation using the TACAN (Tactical Air Navigation) system or alternate
standard navigation plan.
This mission uses AI aircraft flying in very close formation
and intercepted over the uncharted waters of the South Atlantic
Ocean 120nm off the coast of Cape Town.
You will take part in a joint military intercept mission
and see a SAAF squadron of AI Mirage F1's fly through the intruders at 40
degrees to your flight path whilst you dive through the formation from the
rear. The intruders will immediately split their formation once they see
your support group and
you are required to chase the leader and escort him to the nearest air force
base where after, depending on your remaining fuel, you may have to execute
an ILS approach to your diversion destination FACT (Cape Town International
Airport) in controlled airspace under ATC guidance.
Split second timing and precision navigation are required
in order to locate the intruder formation and perform the intercept whilst
avoiding collision with your support aircraft coming in from the flank.
(Please note: The support aircraft are not AI planes and
the original F1CZ-206 aircraft are used. You should not experience any
significant frame rate loss as the intercept takes place over the open sea.
Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
if you experience any difficulty with these.
AI aircraft specifically for this mission by Bjorn
Formation will split immediately after the first wave of
the Mirage support squadron flies through the intruders from the flank
Can be flown using TACAN or standard navigation
