Mission 4 - Interception Course

Callsign: Fighter 808
Aircraft: Mig-29 Fulcrum
Weapon loadout: Heat Seeking Missile x36, Flares x2
Maintain formation and wait until your squadron intercepts the large group of rogue aircraft. After a few moments, your formation will be broken by enemy ambush. This is the perfect time to try OFF mode to familiarize yourself with the system. Take out the enemy targets, starting with the enemy fighters and any nearby bombers/tankers. Your squadron will do a good job bagging the bandits and shooting down the larger aircraft so don't hesitate to take out as many as you can as well.
Dog fight OFF
After getting rid of the last target, you'll need to refuel your plane. Wait for the signal and turn on the assisted approach if you need. After passing through the green circle at the end of the assisted approach, you need to manually connect your plane's fuel nozzle to the tanker. You need to increase your speed gradually and carefully attach your plane's nozzle to the other end of the tanker's fuel transfer cable.
After refueling, enemy bogeys will appear from behind. Engage and destroy them to protect your retreating allies. The enemies will be flying near the mountains so it will be a bit treacherous. They'll also tend to use flares regularly, making it harder to hit them with missiles. You need to get close and shoot them down with your cannon. Shoot down all targets to complete the mission.
