I started a campaign for the first time in years. I've hardly actually played this game for a while.
My first mission was, I thought, an easy one. Recon a FARP - in out, no problems. Came across a tank column on the way, so took them out. Then recon'd the FARP, and immediately got lit up by what I think must have been manpads, as there was no armour showing up. I managed to limp home with a damaged stabiliser, no Hud or working MFDs, and only navigating using the map.
Got to my home FARP, and just about to land when enemy helos showed up and took me out
Lesson learned, the hard way. I feel like my situational awareness isn't great. But it was fun.
