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.
