Thanks Einstien. I'll drop some friendlies onto the airfield.
Ice, I'm not talking about the instant action mission -- I have no trouble with that one. The mission I'm talking about is under the "mission" menu; it's called "River Raider." I haven't flow it yet this morning, but I did think of a solution last night. I had been telling my wingman to go after air defenses to start -- he's not so good at that, so I'm going to anchor him out at sea, take the first air defense down, then command him to drop GBU's on the first and second bunker. After that, I've got enough bombs to get the job done. Well, that's the theory anyway. :P
Success! And a Bronze Star to boot!
That wingman goes nutty sometimes -- I was able to get him to drop one GBU. After that, when I commanded him to attack, he turned an ran directly away from the target. I thought it was for a line up, so I let him go while I orbited. After seeing that he was 30 miles south of the target, I had to call him back to rejoin. Then I held him on my wing until we were within 8 miles of the target and told him to attack again. His response: "unable". So, I just gave him the old "attack air defenses" and never heard from him again...
Anyway, I put a Blue SAM on my airfield, and, just as EinstienEP said, it became friendly. I was able to complete the mission without rearming, but I tried to rearm anyway upon return and it worked.
