    April 2, 2025 (Local Time 2315)
    Yuktobanian AWACS Oka Nieba
    Over Central Tara

    It was become a busy and dangerous night aboard the lone A-50 orbiting west of Zabograd. What'd started as another routine mission guiding fighters to protect the airspace around the border had turned into a full combat mission. Of course, through all this Major Ivan Pokryshkin was able to maintain his joyful demeanor. The short, stout and bald controller sat at his console with a calm, confident smile. It was that smile which kept those under him at ease and focused on their jobs. In the meantime the commander aboard, Colonel Andalavich, was busy ensuring that there were plenty of fighters going south to intercept the massive wave of attack and fighter aircraft coming north towards the city and its facilities. Major Pokryshkin called out to the newest interceptors as he always did: sounding more like he was in a musical than in combat.

    Oka Nieba
    <<Attention new aircraft on approach from Tiger, report in to us. What do you have?>>

    April 2, 2025 (Local Time 2315)
    Shogun Flight
    South of Tiger NAFB

    Eyebrows arched at the accented Osean voice, sounding like it was singing. Nonetheless Vixen keyed her mike.

    Shogun 1-1
    <<Roger that Oka Nieba, this is Shogun Flight. Flight our four Thunderhawks armed for bear. Give us a bandit dope>>

    As soon as they'd been contacted the four jets went into loose deuces, one high (22,000 Feet) and one low (17,000 Feet). In his cockpit, Eric started arming his weapons, selecting his AMRAAMs, and worked his radar so he could see far and shoot the first big contacts he locked. The priority was clear: the bombers needed to go down first and they needed to go down fast.

    Serpent Flight
    South of Tiger NAFB


    Sharky had watched enough combat footage from the Circum-Pacific war to know the callsign of the AWACS servicing them.  He raised his eyebrow momentarily, but then filed the tidbit away.  Fanboying was a waste of time.  

    Shamu
    <<Serpent flight of 2 F-14 inbound.  What've you got?>>


    The two F-14s took up position at 12,000 feet, giving the coalition an extra 5000 feet of coverage.

    April 2, 2025 (Local Time: 2315)
    Ostnetvik Lead
    Just Past the Yuke-Verusean Border

    Tonight the Yuke-Verusean border was nothing more than an imaginary line. Verusean jets of almost every kind pressed north in a massive wave of strikes. They had dozens of targets from industrial complexes to components of the region's air defense to airfields to frontline troops to supply and transit routes. The targets for the 16 Tu-22M Backfires heading north were heading for a firing points to strike targets in Zabograd, Yuktobania's major southern port. Each aircraft had a full load of Kh-101 cruise missiles. They'd hit their launch point in roughly fifteen minutes.

    The pilot in the lead Backfire watched as the fires at the bottom of his windscreen. Their SEAD flight, callsign Lamp, had done a good job of smashing the Yuktobanian SAMs and radars in their path. The eight JH-7B Flounders were also accompanied by four EW-configured J-16A Strike Flankers. To a degree they also had help from the two YH-8 jammers with the Backfires. The main concern for "Vengenace Lead" were Yuke fighters or any of their allies. 

    Bitanga Flight, which was made up of three fourships of J-10S Firebirds and supported by "AWACS Reka Garda", was his main line of defense. The jets were among Verusa's best and most widely available. The pilots were also eager and well-trained.

    Reka Garda
    <<Bitanga, Bitanga, this is Reka Garda...bandits to the north. Vector 020, 480 Kilos, Altitude 6100. You are cleared to engage>>

    Bitanga 1-1
    <<Roger that AWACS, Bitanga is committing. Ostnetvik, lower to Altitude 3900 and proceed on Vector 350 to avoid interceptors>>

    Half of the J-10s broke from their stations above and in front of the Tu-22s and pressed towards two flights of YAF Su-35s operating just south of Zabograd. Their KJ-3000 also pointed out the A-50. The Tiger-based Oseans also fell under its watchful eye; Reka Garda advised the J-10s and also called up a flight of eight J-11s on fighter sweep to the east of the brewing fight to prepare to reinforce the J-10s.

    Bitanga Flight split into two, with four jets heading for the Flankers while the others went north to go around the city and bracket Shogun and Serpent. Four came at Serpent from above while the other four went low against Shogun. They went for their PL-12s first, and salvoed two at each jet. The sky filled with electronic warnings and white-colored "spears".

    April 2, 2025 (Local Time: 2316)
    Shogun Flight
    Northwest of Zabograd


    The flight was broken as the missiles came in. Each jet went different ways, their pilots constantly looking for everything all at once. The missiles, the bandits, other planes, and each other. Things were rapidly falling into confusion and the Veruseans were likely to play on every second of it. Eric cursed them; they were good. But at the same time he felt a tinge of satisfaction. They were being given an equal enemy and they would best him. He pumped chaff and snaked around the PL-10s' flight path. But at the same time his situational awareness was being degraded pretty bad. Only the A-50 kept them from all falling apart.

    Oka Nieba
    <<Serpent, Shogun, and Wisna be advised; we have multiple bandits inbound. At least 50 bandits in the area. Nearest group is at Heading 190, Angels 22, 250 Miles Out. Be advised...have....jamm...>>

    Inside her jet Vixen frowned; the Veruseans weren't playing around. The radar picture, despite being AESA-powered, was getting fuzzy from just how much the Veruseans were putting out. On instinct she looked towards Ryu, signaled to him she was switching to the X-Y Frequency on the radio and to pass it on.Eric saw Ryu's signal in the green-colored night and passed it on to Mark. He switched to the freq and heard Vixen's voice.

    Vixen
    <<Shogun 1-1 is up>>


    Jukebox
    <<Shogun 1-2 is up>>


    Saber
    <<Shogun 1-3>>


    Tex
    <<Shogun 1-4 is up>>


    Vixen
    <<Okay Shoguns listen up. Engage the nearest bandits, and try to get missiles on those jammers or burn through the jamming. Until we can get them, we're on our own. Stay in support of each other; check the main freq every now and again to see if we get comms back>>

    After making quick acknowledgements, the F-21s split into pairs and moved to counter the bracketing they'd seen before the picture had gotten bad. Eric went high and made a long arc towards the J-10s while Mark weaved back and forth, trying to get a lock on any of the jammers. He clenched his teeth and forced himself to be patient while his radar worked, or tried to work, its way though the electronic chaos. He also threw his eyes around, looking for any signs of the Verusean fighters.

    Saber
    <<Looks like this might be a knife-fight, Tex>>


    Tex
    <<Shit>>

    Eric still wasn't getting much progress at this point; he'd be lucky if he got an AMRAAM shot off at around 100 Miles. In the meantime Ryu and Vixen went to a very loose wall formation, going above the J-10s making their way towards the flight. In his headset, Ryu heard occasional bursts of radio traffic getting through from the Su-35s. The VVS, stil somewhat new to being as reliant on AWACS birds like Osea was, seemed to be treating the A-50 like a GCI station. He guessed that mean they'd be playing similar tactics. Maybe they'd follow the Oseans. He decided to try and switched to the main freq.

    Jukebox
    <<Wisna, this....Shogu...foll...to bandits...>>

    "Dammit." Ryu breathed out. He tried again, but got no solid reply. Very well; it was four F-21s and whatever else could get its head on straight. He waited for a solid shot on the J-10s.

    April 2, 2025 (Local Time: 2317)
    Bitanga Lead
    Southwest of Zabograd

    In his plane, Bitanaga 1-1, Lieutenant Colonel Katic watched as the UN aircraft defending Zabograd were scattered. It wasn't what he wanted but it was a start; without proper command and control they were scattered and unable to properly coordinate. He picked two F-21s and went after them with Bitanga 1-2 in tow. The other two jets in his element went high.

    Bitanga 1-1
    <<Three, Four...see if you can hit that AWACS>>

    Bitanga 1-3
    <<Three copies all>>

    Bitanga 1-4
    <<Four copies it all>>

    Meanwhile his second element went for the Flankers, looking to cut them off from the Osean Thunderhawks. Bitanga 1-1 went for Shogun 1-3 as he was weaving to the right and broke his twoship. Bitanga 1-2, a man known as Captain Hadija, went right as Mark went left and slowed to try and slide behind him while the Colonel made a shot at Eric's side.

    In the meantime The third fourship employed itself to trap Vixen and Jukebox and block Serpent from doing much. Bitanga 3-3 and 3-4, two Senior Lieutenants, split from the wedge formation and dove towards the lead pair of Shogun Flight. Each aircraft fired a snapshot PL-9. They just had to keep the fighters busy until the Tu-22s reached their launch point. To keep Serpent busy, 3-1 and 3-2 launched two more PL-10s each to cover their friends.

    The sky was getting busy...
