Hook Presents: “Kosovo in Konflikt” – FRY’D Part II

The Knights go full REDFOR (Never go full REDFOR…) in this weeks conclusion to the two part FRY’D series. See things from a different perspective as you fly for the bad guys over the skies of Koshare, in the final days of the Kosovo conflict. FRY pilots will support ground forces in a last ditch effort to hang on to Koshare, while avoiding NATO air superiority.

INTRODUCTION
It’s May, 1999. The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia strains against the steady pressure of NATO backed incursion into Kosovo. As the NATO air bombing campaign comes to a close, FRY forces lash out in a desperate attempt to hang on to crucial territory in spite of growing KLA insurgency, backed by the mighty of the US Military. This Monday BKS Pilots will participate in the final stages of the battle of Koshare. While FRY pilots were able to preserve the crucial SA-6 and SA-3 sites last week, as well as destroy key KLA artillery, FRY forces in Koshare are still out gunned and struggle to hang on to the city. CAS, airborne reconnaissance and destruction of KLA armor will be the order of the day.

KLA forces appear to be preparing for a combined armor and infantry offensive to cross the river dividing the city. A significant amount of FRY forces remain engaged in heavy fighting on the south side of the river, and are in need of immediate CAS. Pilots will attempt to hold off KLA advances from the west and east sides of the city, while FRY forces attempt to reorganize. FRY forces must control the bridge crossing the river, and the hospital south of that same bridge (currently a causality collection point) for as long as possible. Worst case, FRY forces will need cover for a retreat across the river, followed by destruction of the bridge and of course the hospital (we are FRY after all…)

Pilots may choose from any of the listed available airframes, but remember once that air frame is gone it cannot be used again. L-39ZAs, C-101CCs, MiG 21s & 29s will focus on destruction of light assets. SA-342s will take on KLA armor, and MI-8s will provide troop transport and air assault support.

PRIMARY OBJECTIVE: SUPPORT FRY GROUND FORCES IN THEIR EFFORT TO KEEP CONTROL OF KOSHARE.

 

BRIEFING & AIR TASKING

REDFOR (L-39ZA, C-101CC, SA342, MI-8, MIG 21, MIG 29)

  • CAS. Migs will provide ground attack. L-39ZA and C-101CC will provide light attack, recon and AFAC duties, as well as spot for arty. 
  • Locations: Koshare FARP, local airfields. 
  • Armament: Pilot’s discretion. Be prepared to fly CAS in fixed wing. Rotary wing should be prepared for light attack, recon, and troop transport duties.
  • GCI will be available to all airborne assets.
  • LIMITED RESPAWN BASED ON SLOTS AVAILABLE FOR EACH AIRFRAME!

Threats:

REDFOR: NATO has general air superiority. All fixed wing assets operate under close GCI control, due to the value of each asset. Rotary wing flights generally remain undetected. KLA and Albanian ground forces have MANPADs, AAA, small arms, and armored vehicles of various types. Use extreme caution, preservation of air assets is our highest priority.
