We see the British go to work.

We see the British go to work. As I crest the top of a hill at the Initial Point and bring up the CCIP reticle, I see Strela and Igla missiles rise from the waterfront and the target, along with 23mm tracer from three Shilka vehicles. There is a convoy on the road coming up from Sukhumi airbase. One can guess what it carries. I make a mental note for targeting after the attack run. Guarded with Igla, I will have to do this fast.

Unlike Russian aircraft, the Thunderbolt II has ability to set ripple modes and timing. I set for a six-bomb paired drop at ten ms between pairs, and wish that our Su-25 were so facile. Meanwhile, the British are unleashing the deadly ALARM. It plows into Strela vehicles-our intelligence did not tell us of this, that ALARM can target IR launchers!

Suddenly, my ALR-69 receiver falls silent. Thanks to the British, the way is clear. Col. Martin falls into trail behind me. I’m in the pipe. It is my show, now. I will make it count.

As my pipper approaches the target, I am at 380 feet altitude and I squeeze. As my pipper approaches the target, I am at 380 feet altitude and I squeeze.
All six PB-250 pop loose and the A-10 jolts as it claws for the sky. All six PB-250 pop loose and the A-10 jolts as it claws for the sky.
The blast is sudden, and lights the sky. The blast is sudden, and lights the sky. If I had been lower, or slower, I might have been caught in it!
“One, that’s both factory buildings, repeat, scratch them both.” “One, that’s both factory buildings, repeat, scratch them both.”
I wheel in and target Rockeyes on the convoy of trucks. I am not done. I will show Col. Martin how the Rodina trains its pilots. “Colt 11, in hot on the convoy.”
“Colt 11, in hot on the convoy.” I wheel in and target Rockeyes on the convoy of trucks. The British have been at work here with 20mm cannon, though-most of the enemy lie burning. I pop Rockeyes in a easy dive, and pull up, looking in my rear view.
...the bombs had no effect! The BTR-70 still spits fire at Col. Martin! The canisters spray submunitions, it is most satisfying. But the bombs had no effect! The BTR-70 still spits fire at Col. Martin!
“Colt 11, in hot on the convoy.” I reef into a hard left and line up again, as a Tornado flashes down perpendicularly in a strafing run. A GAZ-66 truck explodes as I center the TVM display on a hot target.“Colt 11, Rifle!”The Maverick flies straight and true, blasting the unfortunate BTR into dust.
I set up for a run on the Ivanov class transport at the docks... I set up for a run on the Ivanov class transport at the docks…
...and expend my remaining Maverick, leaving it in flames. …and expend my remaining Maverick, leaving it in flames.

“Colt 11 off to the northeast. Colt 12, rejoin.”

“Colt 11 off to the northeast. Colt 12, rejoin.”
