Migs in the Desert – Target Locked-On AAR

Somewhere in the middle-east two fictional nations are at war fighting over an oil rich stretch of desert. While tanks roll across the desert below and the battle rages in the skies two Mig 19s are on an intercept mission..

This game pitted two Mig 19s armed with guns and rocket pods against two A4 Skyhawks armed with guns and Sidewinder missiles.

One of the Skyhawks managed to get an early radar lock on one of the Migs and promptly fired both of its Sidewinder missiles. One missed bun one hit home causing 4 points of damage.

The Mig with only 1 damage point remaining failed its morale check and withdrew from the battle leaving his wing-man to face the two Skyhawks alone.

In a last ditch effort to take out the A4s the remaining Mig  fired a hail of rockets at one of the A4sbut due to the inaccuracy of the un0guided rockets only caused minor damage. The other A4 over shot the Mig but carried out a series of manoeuvres bringing the lone Mig into the arc of fire of its gun and unleashed a hail of 20mm bullets scoring a lucky critical hit on the Mig causing it to explode mid-air.
