HSOTFJR as directed by EASFC-DH:

The following orders are to be completed and there MUST be a report by: 11:59 HRS MST, Wednesday the 19th, 2014.
1) Patrol for two hours from ICAO: LFTH in one of the following strike fighters: F-15E, EF2000, M2000-5, F-14b, F-16CJ, F-22, or the BAE GR9. Do not engage with the A-10, as it will be highly vulnerable under fighting conditions.
2) Seeking callsign “Sleb”, and will fly under OCA regulations.
3) Strike once target is sighted and completely destroy the enemy.
4) Return to LFTH in Toulon.
Location: Toulon, France, 43.1300° N, 5.9200° E.
It’s a straightforward mission that has been undertaken by several HSOTF pilots, one of which reported sighting the enemy aircraft but was unable to get a lock. It is preferred, as under OCA, that you strike the enemy while he is on the ground, and not in the air. He is predicted to be flying in a 100 NM radius around LFTH, and if you don’t ever see him, then you are under direct orders to return after two hours exactly and land at the designated air base in Toulon.
When you have completed the mission, target destroyed or not, you will file a direct report stating the happenings of the mission time, and the status of the enemy. Send the report to this email address and it will be filed under EASFC for the HSOTF extension.

–EASFC-DH, Air Chief Marshall
