Switch to nightvision then take off. Approach the objective area and stay within the jammers' effective range to avoid getting hit by SAMs. However, you can't stop the flaks and AA guns from targeting you. The jammers will keep moving so move along with them to stay in their protective range. Otherwise, all enemy fire will be drawn towards you. Continue destroying the power plants. Take note that destroying the power plants will also disable the surrounding AA defenses.
This time enemy fighters will attack one of your EW planes. You must select your Wingman and order it to attack the target once its in range.
After rescuing the EW plane, continue taking out ground targets. You can control the trajectory of your secondary weapon so use it to take out targets that are outside the jammer range. After destroying the last power station, head back to the base as fast as you can. Enemy forces will start attacking it and you'll need to defend it for a set time. Just keep warding off the enemy ground forces. Your rocket pods should be able to take them out as long as you aim for the center of their formations. After getting rid of the advancing enemy units, wait for a few seconds and the allied reinforcements will appear. Select your targets and order your Wingman to attack them. After taking out the last enemy fighters, land of the airfield to complete the mission.
