The mission is rated a success. Of the 8 aircraft involved in the strike we lost only the one CAP F-15C. All of my wingmen put their ordnance on the runway, although it was pretty much overkill since they put it all in the same spot! It would be nice if I could load different ordnance on wingmen and assign them different DPMIs much like you could in Jane’s F-15. The most important part however, is that Taetan was put out of business with most of their main runway either destroyed or damaged.
With a variety of targets and mission types and the ability to control what types of missions you can be fragged for, Falcon 4 remains among the most incredible simulations ever to be produced. With a dedicated (some say rabid!) community dedicated to continuously improving and upgrading Falcon 4 this simulation still has a very bright future indeed.
