A LOMAC Mission Report: Turn Their HAWKs Into Scrap! Page 4

“Two, running in. Going SEAD.”“Vasily, IP.”

“Two, running in. Going SEAD.”

I must draw the Turkish fire. I pop over a mountain and skim over a cliff, the deep blue of the Black Sea below me. The Turk has a clear line of sight. I’m picking up three different radars. One intermittently locks me. I ensure I’m in Zemlya-YPC mode, for Kh-29MP firing.

 

My Kh-25 will take the most threatening automatically, and I designate. My Kh-25 will take the most threatening automatically, and I designate.
It’s picked up a target in the cluster of radars ahead and I fire. It’s picked up a target in the cluster of radars ahead and I fire.
Activating my Sorbtsiya jammer system, I roll over and pull for the deck with full burner on. Activating my Sorbtsiya jammer system, I roll over and pull for the deck with full burner on.I switch to bombs, and see the “b” indicator on my control panel adjacent to the HUD flip into its tiny window. On the HUD, I have my CCIP reticle, which will allow me to put bombs on target. I breathe out to relax, reminding myself that the CCIP in the Su-25 and Su-27 tends to pitch short.
I must put the pipper beyond target before I squeeze. I must put the pipper beyond target before I squeeze.
Oh no! Somehow, my missile locked the EWR radar instead of the HAWK! Oh no! Somehow, my missile locked the EWR radar instead of the HAWK!
“One, you’ve hit the EWR system!” “One, you’ve hit the EWR system!”It’s active and I’m committed! I swallow the lump in my throat and concentrate. I’m too low for the HAWK to hit me, I hope.
The Turkish operators are waiting for me to get within no-escape distance... The Turkish operators are waiting for me to get within no-escape distance, and high enough for a SAM kill. It is me they concentrate on, though Vasily is popping up and down over the hills surrounding their base to try to draw a shot.Suddenly, a solid tone from my Beryoza radar-warning system!
