The MiG detonates with a fireball, but...

The IRLF pilot evades the Sidewinder with a good maneuver and use of flares, but my Sparrow is not so easily defeated. The MiG detonates with a fireball, but my TEWS is singing a lock-on tune. The SAM has locked me.

I go for the water and look to the coast-there should be a missile in flight if the battery is capable of launching. I go for the water and look to the coast-there should be a missile in flight if the battery is capable of launching.“One, engaged defensive SA-6.”“I see him, one, he’s on the road to the airbase. Uh… they’re moving, in convoy. They can’t deploy missiles. If we stay out of range of that ZSU we ought to be okay.”
I call Troy to rejoin and we head for home. So. The radar crew attempted to distract us with their lock-on. And it nearly worked-if I had not been focused on protecting Troy, I would have opened myself up to the shot. But in focusing on the kill I left myself open to the SAM. It can set up for action quickly.We must leave the area… now.I call Troy to rejoin and we head for home.

Sukhumi is so close to Sochi. As we line up in the pattern for landing the Cube radar continues to paint us, only losing contact when the mountains intervene. This is intolerable — the Cube must be broken — as the HAWK was before it.
