OPERATION: RED HEAT



SEPTEMBER 25, 2013

Operation Red Heat was launched today in support of NATO forces against Communist Russian separatists in the Kola Peninsula. News as it happens will be posted here.


BACKGROUND

The United Nations Security Council is debating a resolution to assist the Russians to reunite and NATO is discussing security in case the situation escalates. Washington is expressing concern also so COMNAVPAC has ordered the USS Ronald Reagan Carrier Group to the Barents Sea to reassure our NATO partners. The orders are to present a high profile and hopefully a calming effect over this Russian internal conflict. The VFA-41 Black Aces have been ordered to fly to Kirkenes Air Base, Norway and land. There will be a short ceremony by local officials and then you are clear to RTB. Take care to not stray into Russian air space. The Stalinists of the new Russian region, Maskirovka Oblast of Russia (MOOR) are beating the war drum but everyone understands it is just sabre rattling to impress the Russian Republic politicians and possibly other world leaders. The carrier group will stay on station in international waters and be careful to not aggravate the situation. Have a pleasant flight.


MISSION OBJECTIVES

1. Launch from the carrier and land at Kirkenes for local ceremony to welcome us to the area.


Package:
4xF/A-18E (Foxtrot)

Supporting flights:
2xF/A-18E (Carrier CAP)( Skate)

DEBRIEF

Dragon, ShoGunny, Lion, Arson attending

Lead: Dragon - trapped
#2: Shogunny - trapped
#3: Lion - trapped
#4: Arson - trapped

Notes: Flight launched and headed towards Kirkenes Air Base in hopes of enjoying the short ceremony and getting the cellphone numbers of a few of the local "hotties" in hopes of getting laid on a future visit.

However, while ingressing, one of our warships was hit by cruise missiles and heavily damaged. The origin of the missiles was not determined, but our flight received orders to abort its original mission and to CAP over the carrier until ordered to RTB.

All aircraft recovered safely and the mission was considered a success.

MISSION 3

USS Ronald Reagan - Barents Sea
VFA-41 Black Aces

LOCAL TIME: 1300
WEATHER: Cloudy

ROE: Yellow and Hold

BACKGROUND

Radar has indentified a A-50U Mainstay inbound from the Murmansk area. As its mission is probably to gather intelligence on the carrier group, command has ordered a flight of FA-18s to intercept it. Your orders are to prevent the A-50U from engressing within 100 nm of the carrier group and force it to return to the mainland. If it will not turn back you are cleared to engage and fire. If the Mainstay trys to divert around you to another path to the carrier group you are clear to engage and fire. IF it is nessessary to use weapons, attempt to only damage the Mainstay with guns and force it to return to the mainland. Unnecessary loss of life will only aggravate this situration. Do not stray into Russian air space. RTB when the area is clear.


MISSION OBJECTIVES

1. Launch from the carrier and intercept the A-50U Mainstay. Force it to return to the mainland.

MISSION 4

USS Ronald Reagan - Barents Sea
VFA-41 Black Aces

LOCAL TIME: 0800
WEATHER: Clear

ROE: Yellow and Safe

BACKGROUND

The VFA-41 Black Aces are ordered to escort an E-2C to gather intel on the MOOR carrier group. The carrier group is currently 200 nm south-east of our position. The E-2C will take off with the flight and ingress at Angels 30, 250 Kts following the same flight path as Foxtrot. The MOOR carrier will likely launch fighters as a defensive cover. The E-2C Hawkeye will orbit at a safe distance until it is determined to be safe for the Hawkeye to continue the mission. Do not fire upon the Russian fighters unless fired upon first.


MISSION OBJECTIVES

1. Launch from the carrier with the Hawkeye (Hotel) and escort for intel gathering flight.


Package:
6xF/A-18E (Escort)(Foxtrot)
1xE-2C Hawkeye (Hotel)

Supporting flights:

DEBRIEF

Dragon, Madrus, Arson, Ticman, Hedgehog, ShoGunny attending

1 - Dragon: trapped.
2 - Madrus: trapped.
3 - Arson: 2x Su-27, 1x Su-33, trapped.
4 - Ticman: 3x Su-33, crashed on recovery.
5 - Hedgehog: landed at divert field (Kutskova)
6 - ShoGunny: trapped.

Notes:
Dragon & Madrus collided in flight. Both planes damaged and both recovered safely. Hedgehog was re-assigned as Flight lead.

AWACS reported hostile aircraft inbound. Flight Leader sent Arson & Ticman to investigate. Bandits launched a-a missiles, Arson & Ticman engaged and shot them down.

ShoGunny, Arson, & Ticman were ordered RTB due to low fuel. FL continued escort until fuel low, and was diverted to Kutskova due to crash on deck/fouled deck.

Mission failed. Flight did not complete escort of E-2C Hawkeye. Overall, flight would have needed much more fuel to complete the escort, which was well over 2 hours. (No tanker available.)

Not enough flares for this unlucky Flanker.

MISSION 5


USS Ronald Reagan - Barents Sea
VFA-41 Black Aces

LOCAL TIME: 0700
WEATHER: Clear

ROE: Yellow and Tight

BACKGROUND

A flight of F/A-18 Hornets are tasked to fly a patrol along the Russian coast in international waters. The MOOR carrier group has moved in port but intel reports indicate above normal radio traffic and chatter. Command advises caution and staying alert for unprovoked aggression. Your flight is cleared to engage any hostiles if you or our ships are fired upon. Your load out will include SEAD and anti-ship capability. The USS Reagan carrier group will be moving to a position farther off the coast. This move should take the carrier group out of range of land based missiles and provide more warning time for other threats. Intelligence does not yet know the extent of the MOOR naval capability or the location of all their ships. A KC-135 tanker will be available on your waypath near WP5. Stay alert and do not stray into Russian air space. RTB safely.

MISSION 6

USS Ronald Reagan - Barents Sea
VFA-41 Black Aces

LOCAL TIME: 1700
WEATHER: Cloudy- Incoming storm

ROE: Yellow and Tight

BACKGROUND

COMNAVPAC has ordered a strike on the MOOR carrier group now believed to be responsible for the previous attacks against our ships. The success of this strike will not be determined only by damage inflicted to the enemys ships but more by demonstating our willingness and ability to launch a strike against their carrier group. The first priority is no loss of friendly aircraft, second priority is critical damage to enemy ships. The mission is outlined as follows:

1. The STRIKE flight (Alpha, Group A) will ingress NOE from WP#3 to within weapon launch range, then climb rapidly to optimal weapons release altitude to launch weapons, then hit the deck and egress.
STRIKE flight should concentrate the attack on the nearest target to give the weapons the best chance of penetrating the enemies defenses.

2. CAP/SEAD flight (Bravo, Group B) will ingress at angels 25 and arrive at WP#3 two minutes before STRIKE reaches its respective WP#3.
CAP/SEAD will ingress to launch HARMS then stand off near WP#5 at angels 15 to cover the STRIKE flights egress in case enemy fighters launch and pursue.

3. Both flights will meet near WP#5 and RTB.

A KC-135 tanker will be available on your egress waypath midway between WP5 and WP6. AWACS (X-Ray One) will launch with the flight and be onstation by 1715. The MOOR carrier group is presently 200 nm south-east of our present position and consists of 5 or 6 ships. Good luck and RTB safely.

MISSION OBJECTIVES

1. Two flights launch and coordinate their respective ingress to deliver a HARM SEAD and HARPOON STRIKE on a ship in the MOOR carrier group.

Package:
3xF/A-18E (STRIKE)(Alpha)
3xF/A-18E (CAP/SEAD)(Bravo)

MISSION 8

USS Ronald Reagan - Barents Sea
VFA-41 Black Aces

LOCAL TIME: 0600
WEATHER: Cloudy

ROE: Yellow and Tight

BACKGROUND

Radar detected two large aircraft taking off from Kilpyavr Air Base about an hour ago. The flight headed north out to sea and were joined by several fighter aircraft. The flight has now turned toward our carrier group. Radar signatures identify the aircraft as Russian Tu-22M Backfires and Mig-29s as escorts. The Backfires may be armed with long range anti-ship missiles and can not be allowed within 150 nm of the carrier. Intercept the incoming flight at WP#4 and turn them away. You are clear to launch weapons only if fired upon. You are clear to use guns to damage the Backfires if they refuse to turn away and close within 150 nm of the carrier. When AWACS declares the ops area is clear, you are ordered to RTB. A KC-135 Air Tanker will be available near WP#5.


MISSION OBJECTIVES

1. Launch and intercept the inbound Backfires.

DEBRIEF

Dragon, Madrus, Hedgehog, ShoGunny, Arson, Ticman attending

Lead: Dragon - 2x MiG-29, crashed (sim failure)
#2: Madrus - 1x MiG-29, shot down by MiG-29
#3: Hedgehog - 1x MiG-29, trapped
#4: ShoGunny - trapped
#5: Arson - trapped
#6: Ticman - trapped

Notes: Flight launched and flew up through foul weather before forming up and flying to the intercept point. The MiG-29s were orbiting just beyond the engagement zone. However, one of the MiGs fired on #3. Lead called weapons hot and after a short air-to-air engagement followed which resulted in four MiGs being splashed. #2 was hit and punched out.

The Tu-22s turned away and were never a factor.

Remaining aircraft were ordered to RTB.

MISSION 9

USS Ronald Reagan - Barents Sea
VFA-41 Black Aces

LOCAL TIME: 0345
WEATHER: Stormy
ROE: Red and Free

BACKGROUND

The TU-22M Backfires that are threatening the Reagan carrier group are based at Kilpyavr Air Base. COMNAVPAC has ordered a surprise strike to destroy them. The base is protected by a SA-10B Flap Lid radar SAM site that will have to be taken down. The Russian coast is protected by a network of SA-11 and IHawk SAMs. It will be possible to fly at NOE and pass through the coastal SAMs without being detected.
