    243 KB Planes and Mercs XXXVI op again !XQ6W0CNp/o 09/01/10(Wed)17:38 No.11912396  
    I know this is a bit late in getting here, but here goes. As always, this is based on my notes and recollection of the game we played, and the space time continuum may break down occasionally. As to the rules, Steve said he'd be emailing me a pts cost list for aircraft, that he said you can use as a basis to determine airframe pricing. It is not entirely realistic but is good for gameplay from both the Gms view and the players. I hope that helps you guys a bit, I know you really want to know more about the game we play, but I think you have already gotten most of it, based on what I saw at Planes and Mercs forum. I don't even know what goes on behind the screen since Steve does rolls for certain things and we're not always clued in as to what it is. I swear sometimes he just rolls dice randomly to freak us out. Anyway, back to the mission debrief, this is being typed in real-time so sorry for delays. Sometimes real life might interfere as well, I have Top Gun playing in the background. I can repost the mission briefing if you need it as well.

    Our squadron was in charge of the operation, with three other squadrons working with us. Jaeger flight were Air Superiority specialists, with two F-15s and F-14s. Demon flight was a SEAD/ECM flight operating two SU-24s and two Tornadoes, with an additional four QF-4s. We were told they were about the same skill level as our flight. The final flight was Badger, composed of two Falcons a Fitter and a Warthog. They were a relatively inexperienced squadron compared to the rest of us. Our squadron was flying a variety of aircraft. Hugs was back in his Flanker, loaded down with some a/g but mostly air to air. Scotch was flying the F-16 that Hugs had given him, and was set for an a/g mission. I was finally in my F-15 Strike Eagle, and Judge had also upgraded, selling all his other airframes to get a MiG-35, which he loaded to fly wing with Hugs. We sat down at Steve's to do some initial planning, and figured the chief worry would be air defense on the transport planes, so we had to come in and sanitize the airspace over the airfield as fast as possible. We threw around some ideas, until we had a general assault plan ready to go. Then we kicked the tires and lit the fires (sorry, Goose said it about eight minutes ago)

    We took off and began circling the airfield, forming up into our strike group. Badger had been tasked to depart earlier than us, heading in at low altitude as part three of our strike plan. Jaeger and Demon were flying in before us, since we planned to do mop up, helping where needed. The Transports rumbled into the air ahead of us, but after everyone else, we'd be doing convoy protection as they headed towards the airfield. The airdrop would be done from two AN-12s, one C-130 and two C-160s, which were basically sitting ducks. We were told that it would be ideal to leave the runway intact, for extraction, but not necessary should operational circumstances dictate. We were planning to not damage the runway in the assault, but to render it unusable for some time. We had opted to take the tanker support, but had it in reserve, essentially on standby, the distance to target being so close we figured we could risk a lot of fuel and still get the big MRTT into the air to help us if we started to run a bit dry. The air was full of EW, and the French Hawkeye was telling us they were detecting a lot of activity through the clutter, including active air defense radars, some of which were definitely the Chinese S-300 system. They were keeping their distance until we had eliminated those, since they knew what had happened to our own AWAACS flight on our last mission. But we had planned for that, so before Badger got too close, our welcome package popped over the horizon.

    The S-300s lit off, or what we thought were S-300s did, pushing missiles into the air as our surprise came in. We had discussed before hand, that this was an assault, and we might have some element of surprise on our side, but it wouldn't last very long, and priority number one had to be finding and taking out the S-300 systems, they were just too much of a threat to worry about at close range (close being where they could hit us, which is actually pretty far away). Essentially, the plan was to “Go Big or Go Home” so we pulled in a lot of favours to get two RK-55 systems delivered to us through our contacts inside the Russian arms industry and the arms smuggler we had helped in a prior mission. Using this, we sent a barrage of eight heavy cruise missiles at the airfield and island camp, with a primary purpose of forcing BARS to react, reveal and expend their most effective ground to air at an early point in the battle. The secondary purpose would of course be if one of the GLCMs got through and blew a chunk out of their base of operations. As the systems were working hard, Demon made their move, punching their burners and turning in towards the engagement area. A minute later, Jaeger also rolled in, although staying subsonic and noses cold. The QF-4 flight was spread out over a wide area, broadcasting heavy jamming from ECM pods strapped onto them, and linking back to Demon what their radars were seeing. As the S-300s began opening up, Demon called off and marked down their positions, before the SU-24s began delivering their payload. A flurry of SS-N-35s configured in the aecm mode with INS secondary dropped down, roaring off towards the S-300 positions.

    The E-2 began telling us that they had several distinct airborne targets now, heading towards our inbounds. Aerial classification put them as J-8s, attempting to intercept the missile storm heading towards their base of operations. Jaeger's F-14s went hot, and sent a single AIM-54 at each target as they entered range, four in total. Further ahead, our RK-55 salvo was causing havoc, the three identified S-300 launchers having fired off their full loads, taking out four of our inbound missiles. Another one dissapeared, probably due to the airborne interceptors getting a lucky shot, although they could see the F-14s now, and were turning towards them. Hugs and Judge pushed ahead, leaving me with Scotch and the transports (which for their part, were firewalling their engines.) Demon called out that they now had multiple BUK radars going active, their seemed to be a fair amount of SA-11 equivalents in the target area, but again, while not in the briefing, not unexpected either. The Tornadoes began closing with the SU-24s as they let loose their last kh-35s, two in total. The QF-4s began to reposition, closing on the engagement area. Our E-2 began to head in as well, and as each turn passed we bagn to get more information, not the least of which there were now six planes orbiting the target area, apparently forming up with planes as they rolled off the target airfield. We decided that it was time to put a stop to that, and I dropped my two MBDA Apache missiles, letting them begin their flight toward the airfield.

    Yeah, those cruise missiles they sent in first directly at the airbase? They're under attack from the S-300 and fighters in the air. The two runway denial systems Op just launched will most likely sneak in under the chaos caused by the initial swamp attack.

    So far this plan seems to be pretty strong, although I'm concerned about munitions, depending on target density, op and crew might run out of ordnance.

    Just send out one of the cruise missiles early, have it stay low and fly around. Once everything is going up at its bros it sneaks in from behind and craters the center of the runway with a supersonic target run. Doubt any AA would have a chance with the covert approach and everything they had heading the other way.

    Cruise missiles don't really have a loiter function... And it would have to loiter at a distance equal to Baron's probable launch point, to not get picked off by that Sam defence. Sometimes kicking down the front door and unloading a shotgun is as subtle as a plan needs to be.

    Whatnow? I don't know what I'm talking about, but I believe neither do you.

    Besides it would not need to loiter but be able to take a designated route instead of a straight line. And I really really think they do that since the 80s.
    >> Anonymous 09/01/10(Wed)20:18 No.11914278
    True enough, but it puts a bigger range on the missile, one it might not have, or puts the launching aircraft out of position relative to the rest of the group. And there is no guarantee on timings. I just can't see sneaking a missile in, without tipping them off to what was happening.

    They were ground launched. Are you kidding about range? And the timing can be precisely planned as this is a phase of the strike before any enemy contact. The only variable is wind.
    >> Anonymous 09/01/10(Wed)20:26 No.11914392
    Some of them were ground launched, not all of them. And range is a big issue, short of ship based missiles, or subsonic TLAMs, most cruise missiles top out at 200km or so. You would need to stay undetected relative the enemy missile site, so probably 150 mile radius, and fly the circumference of that. I just can't see a multi-vector attack going well, its overly complicated, no matter how efficient it is, you are not going to knock out that runway before some planes get in the air, and you have a higher risk of failure.

    Hugs joined with the two F-15s of Jaeger, and Judge slipped in as well. The F-14s turned back, hanging around a point, waiting for a choice target as the shorter ranged aircraft continued closing. The J-8s didn't do well, three of them fell to the AIM-54s, never having seen the missiles, the final one failed to hit. Not that it mattered, an AMRAAM from an F-15 finished it off. The large force of aircraft over the airfield turned towards us, composed of eight distinct targets. Demon turned off the attack, pulling out so that Jaeger could do their job, and Badger arrived at their staging point. There were no S-300s operational at this point, apparently having fallen victim to the hurt demon had laid on them. Scotch and I began to make checks for our run, pulling away from the Transports as the F-14s moved back towards us to continue the escort. A large airborne search radar wen active near the airfield, and was quickly identified as a chinese AN-12 Awaacs aircraft, we still didn't have idents on the aircraft heading at Jaeger Hugs and Judge, but there was definitely some ill intent there, so Hugs decided that was good enough, and punched on his radar, and Judge did the same thing. In quick succession, they launched, with Hugs firing two AA-12s at two enemy aircraft, and Judge releasing an AA-10 each at two targets. The F-15s would be in range next turn, hopefully taking care of stragglers that survived the first shot. The enemy formation for their part, broke, as they detected the active missiles heading towards them.
    >> op again !XQ6W0CNp/o 09/01/10(Wed)20:50 No.11914693
    Scotch and I began to accelerate on our new heading, we were scheduled to do a low pass of the enemy camp. Demon flight reformed, and began making a beeline towards the airfield at high speed and low altitude, with Badger's two F-16s following. The transports were closing, only a few turns out now, but the airspace was far from sanitized, although Demon had killed off most SAMs, or at least forced them to shut down, which is almost as good. Hugs scored a kill, then a second, with Judge chalking up a third kill on his initial missile strike, his final missile veering wide. The speed contributed to the kills, since the missiles had crippled two of the enemy (the other had been wiped from existence) but the target speed had ripped them apart when becoming crippled. But with no real warning, one of Jaeger's F-15s erupted in flames and molten metal, torn to pieces by a missile strike. Both Hugs and Judge began evading, as their threat receivers began to light up as the enemy turned on their radars, and the four J-11s revealed themselves. The other F-15 gave back just as well, performing a barrel roll and firing off its AMRAAMS in a long ripple fire, sending an unknown target to hell and first crippling and then destroying a J-11. It was now three on three, both sides beginning hard manoeuvring as they closed to knife fighting range at nearly mach 4.

    The 2 Apaches will deliver 10 warheads each and crater the runway all over. That is harder to fix than a single big crater.

    Demon was now proceeding on target, as was myself and Judge, hugging the ground at high speed. My strike had apparently gotten through, since there were no aircraft coming off the airfield, either that or everything of value was already in the air. As we rushed in, Jaeger's F-14s fired off at the enemy AWAACS, which was turning to depart the area. The transports crossed over the beachhead, but were under no missile fire yet, as they approached the airfield from the south. Demon flight rushed over the airfield, telling us there was a burning transport plane on the runway, and a massive fire raging from one of the hangars on the side of the field, as well as several aircraft still on the ground. Demon roared over, dropping their final bomb load, and in such a target rich environment they didn't have difficulty scoring ground kills. But as they passed over, one of the Tornados took a missile, seriously damaging it, while one SU-24 was ripped from the sky by another. Concentrated ground fire damaged the other SU-24, and it turned outbound, heading towards the relative safety of the ocean. Still, the raid had been successful, destroying a significant amount of equipment on the ground. For our part, we pulled over the enemy camp, dropping delayed cluster munitions in a mach+ pass, heading north and out of the engagement zone. There was some limited ground fire, but nothing as serious as what had hit demon over the airfield. Meanwhile, the air battle continued to rage as both sides struggled to get a target lock on each other, turning and rolling in a vicious furball.

    Judge was entering into an immelmann, and Judge pulled a break turn, bleeding speed to increase their chances of hits. Their opponents had lined up on Jaeger's remaining F-15, but Judge slipped in behind, and Hugs was angled for a crossing shot. Hugs missed with his Archer, but Judge did not, tagging one of the J-11s in the rear quarter, but the tough bird shrugged it off, suffering only superficial damage. The F-15 evaded the two missiles launched at it, performing a hard barrel roll and turn. The third J-11 had rolled, attacking Hugs, but missing on a head on shot. I was turning with Scotch, heading back towards the camp when the E-2 said they were tracking two aircraft, fast moving climbing off the airfield, and vectoring towards the outbound Demon aircraft. Jaeger's F-14s hit the enemy AWAACS, but not knocking it out. Scotch vectored off my wing, heading towards it, since the F-14s were now heading to the furball to help out the remaining F-15. I hit my afterburner, so that I would arrive over the airfield just before the transports arrived, planning on dumping all my iron in a quick run, then climbing slightly to go armour hunting. The ZSU-23 radars that popped on were not a surprise, at this point I expected them. I roared across the airfield just as Scotch lit up the enemy AWAACs with a sidewinder, causing it to fall out of the sky dragging a trail of smoke behind it.

    I crossed the airfield, releasing cluster munitions over the tarmac, as the enemy AA opened fire, just in time to reveal their positions to Badger's F-16s, who dealt with one of them quickly, blowing it to pieces with a Maverick. One of them called that an aircraft had taken off just behind me, and was climbing quickly. I wasn't too worried, since my speed meant I was outpacing a departing aircraft quickly. The F-16s turned and got a lock on the aircraft chasing Demon's survivors, but one couldn't get a lock, and the other's missile missed. Hugs was now flying at low speed in his dogfight, but he was able to bring his nose around enough to get a shot of cannon off at a passing J-11, but not enough to cripple it. Judge was out of position, dumping chaff and flares, with a J-11 on his tail, and the Jaeger F-15 was involved in a scissors fight with the final one. The hard charging F-14s roared in, dropping one of the J-11s with AIM-7s, but expending their entire ranged armament to do it. It did give Judge a respite though, and he turned to aid Hugs while Jaeger dealt with the other Chinese Flanker. Demon called out in a panic, having just lost the a Tornado to a missile strike from the pursuing aircraft. And then the aircraft on my six launched.

    I jinked, climbing into a hard roll, and one of the missiles veered wide. The other got in close enough and detonated, tearing into the airframe, and my WSO shouted that we'd just lost all external systems. Since it was a waste to haul it all around, I dumped what remained of my air to ground and rolled again, just in time to see Scotch nailing the aircraft on my tail with his last sidewinder. The aircraft began smoking, which turned dark quickly, and the ejection seat fired just as the smoke turned into a burst of flame from the failing engine. Scotch couldn't get a visual id on the aircraft, but he told me it was a delta, as I turned out to see if I could help out Demon flight. I got a tone off my radar, and sent out two AIM-120s towards them, as Badger added to the fire, and Scotch rolled back to try and get another hit on the airfield. Hugs finally scored a solid hit with an archer, and his target tore itself to pieces. Jaeger for their part, took down the enemy J-11, but were out of armaments, and turned to head back to base. The transport planes rumbled over the airfield, and Scotch nailed a ZSU that was still transmitting with another well placed maverick. The paratroopers began deploying, dropping quickly onto the now burning airfield tarmac.

    My AIM-120s flew true, and knocked one of the pursuing aircraft out of the sky, the other, realizing it wouldn't have the speed to catch the fleeing aircraft, turned back towards land, and me. Another aircraft made it off the airfield, departing off a taxiway, but Hugs and Judge were already on it, blasting the transport to pieces, causing it to come crashing back down into the city where it disappeared into a fireball. Badger began their close support mission, which for the most part went well, except for the SU-17 pilot missing his target and bombing part of the city instead of hangar. I launched my final two sidewinders at the closing aircraft, and it responded with missile fire as well. It didn't turn out well for either of us. My missile hit, but didn't do much of anything, but the second certainly did, seriously crippling it and causing an engine failure. The missiles coming in towards me had an easy time, I had no ECM, chaff, flares, due to the previous hit. The very first hit destroyed my aircraft, and my brand new eagle disintegrated around me ejecting.

    Most of the rest of the mission went as planned, Badger took a loss as the A-10 took a ridiculous amount of ground fire and was torn to pieces by two hand launched sams and an autocannon hit. The other three, Hugs, Judge and Scotch kept an eye on Badger, but out of range of ground fire, and then flew back to land safely. All in all, we destroyed a lot of equipment, and absolutely slaughtered the BARS force on the ground, but we took some hard hits as well. As to our plan for the runway, as planned, one hour after deployment, are submunitions detonated, and the runway was free for use for our recovery teams. We did not prevent the escape of some of the BARS personnel from the camp, who departed in two AN-26 aircraft, but for the most part, we fulfilled the mission objectives. As much as dying sucked, I am making a new pilot to join up although I suspect my first aircraft is going to suck compared with how good the F-18 was.

    If this was a sitcom, this'd be the part where the laughtrack kicks in.

    ...and this'd be the part where "on a very special and serious episode of planes and mercs, Baron dies and we talk in soothing but serious tones to explain mortality and the capricious senselessness of death to the younger member of our viewing audience." And the who thing is probably dedicated to an old producer of ex-frequent guest star of the show who died of cancer of an overabundance of cocaine in his sinuses.

    One point of interest is whether you could ask Steve whether heaven and hell exist in this setting, because if they do, Baron's going to fry for the great cruise ship debacle, and the GM, acting as the closest thing to a cruel and capricious god for the characters, is in an unique position to answer.

    ... which makes me wonder how I'd feel if I passed away and thus found out the name of god is Steve.

    Sorry that the report is so jumbled, I was trying to make it so that it would be easy to follow, but a lot of stuff happened during the mission. I don't really think that I did the air battle justice, since it lasted several turns, and was very intense, as they tried to get locks on planes just as maneuverable, or very nearly so, as theirs, and ones flown quite competently. Our opening salvo was also glossed over, but the number of markers tossed down was pretty frightening, when we saw all those SAM sites go hot.

    F-16 is the new F-5. Sexy as hell. But its air superiority seriously limited by age. Ideal for export.

    Not yet, but within the next few decades. Most air threats in the current environment are still going to top out at 4th to 4.5 generation, which it's still able to stand up to in a dogfight. You're right about being ideal for export, though--more than 20 countries fly the things.

    Reasons I love Planes and Mercs
    1. Awesome Jet Fighters
    2. Callsigns (Names are not important, everyone is known by their callsign)
    3. Combat that is lethal. You hit, you've probably killed something.
    4. Mortality, there are no second chances, you either live or die, and it is final. (So many RPGs don't do this)
    5. Interesting missions. I thought an Air Combat game would be boring, but this is roughly the sixteenth outing, and I have been entertained by all of them.
    6. "It's almost real" which I mean, as I look stuff up, I find that the p&m crew are flying out of real places, against real adversaries. There is make believe in it obviously, but there's hints of truth as well.
    7. Scotch.

    I just got sent an email I think you might find fitting:

    After every flight, Qantas Airlines pilots fill out a form called a gripe
    sheet, which conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the
    aircraft during the flight that need repair/correction. The mechanics
    read and correct the problem, and then respond in writing on the lower half of the form what actionwas taken. Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humour..

    (P = The problem logged by the pilot.)
    (S = The solution and action taken by the engineers.)

    P: Left inside main tyre almost needs replacement.
    S: Almost replaced left inside main tyre.

    P: Test flight OK, except auto-land very rough.
    S: Auto-land not installed on this aircraft.

    P: Something loose in cockpit.
    S: Something tightened in cockpit.

    P: Dead bugs on windshield.
    S: Live bugs on backorder.

    P: Autopilot in altitude-hold mode produces a 200 feet per minute descent.
    S: Cannot reproduce problem on ground.

    P: Evidence of leak on right main landing gear.
    S: Evidence removed.

    P: DME volume unbelievably loud.
    S: DME volume set to more believable level.

    P: Friction locks cause throttle levers to stick.
    S: That's what they're there for.

    P: IFF inoperative.
    S: IFF always inoperative in OFF mode.

    P: Suspected crack in windshield.
    S: Suspect you're right.

    P: Number 3 engine missing.
    S: Engine found on right wing after brief search.

    P: Aircraft handles funny.
    S: Aircraft warned to straighten up, fly right, and be serious.

    P: Target radar hums.
    S: Reprogrammed target radar with lyrics.

    P: Mouse in cockpit.
    S: Cat installed.

    P: Noise coming from under instrument panel. Sounds like a midget pounding on something with a hammer.
    S: Took hammer away from midget.
