Ants in your pants
Blue Liberation Front (BLF)
4 Cold @Gelendzhik
2 Cold, 2 Warm @ Novorossiiysk
4 Air @ Krymsk
2 Cold @Krymsk
Red Democratic Republic (RDR)
1 Cold Ka-50
A hot summer night along the coast. Normal patrols...
A civilian ship runs aground mysteriously.
Within a short time a base appears, illuminated for construction, most of the activity being underground.
With little warning the night sky above the base is filled with smoke and red fireballs. Suddenly troops come pouring out of the bunker and head off into the night.
Realization dawned on the Blue Liberation Force - this is the start of a major invasion! It seems that the Red Democratic Rebublic obtained new technology and with it they are rapidly spreading, advancing their forces towards Gelendzhik, Novorossiysk and Krymsk.
The good news is that there are no real air defense threats.

This mission pushes the limits of unit counts. If you experience a loss of cockpit sounds let us know - this version should be OK.
Designer notes - each Red base fields about two columns. When a new base is activated an illumination flare marks the spot.
Red flares fire for a few minutes before each bunker releases its troops. Green flares fire for a couple of minutes afterwards.
If the Red base is destroyed then it cannot release troops. Destroying these bases has a significant impact on the red army's ability to spread.
To destroy a base, the Road Outpost, Bunker and Shilka must all be destroyed.
This must be done quickly, before the base releases its troops. Pilot coordination is the key.
Red win: Capture the three air bases - Gelendzhik, Novorossiysk, and Krymsk.
Blue win: Prevent all three Blue bases from being captured. Or, if the ants cannot advance due to losses the Blue will win.
'Ants' will take 3-4 hours to complete, without intervention.

Exit now or you will be terminated.
The Red Ka-50 does not have FARP support - no reload or rearm capability exists.
(This mission is up against hard limits on the number of units. There is no room to support the Red Ka-50s.)
Use aircraft nose numbers for Own ID. Default Net ID is 11.
The Red Ants are advancing from the bottom on the coast to the top at Krymsk airbase.
The Red Ants expand out and every new hive fires off an illumination flare. Red signal flares go until the hive releases its armies.
The Red Ant armies expand northward to target Glendzhik and Novorossiysk first, then to Krymsk.
Kill a hive in the red signal flare stage and it will not be able to release its armies - which would be a significant blow to the RDR advance.
Once a hive releases its armies it will fire green flares - don't bother anymore with it. Find the units that just left that base and kill them all!

Novorossiysk about to be captured
Ninja There is this pesky Red Ka-50 that keeps blowing up the Novo base while I'm trying to test the beta... LOL
