Mission 2 – Training Day
Lt. Colin Munro
Callsign: Polaris 4
Aircraft: Eurofighter Typhoon
Weapon loadout: Heat Seeking Missile x100, Flares x12
After taking off, join the other polaris unit and stick close to them until your first task. For your first task, you need to engage and attack the AWACs then Polaris 1. After getting cleared for the current training segment, you'll then need to use your missiles. Engage and shoot down the targets. Make sure that you release the missiles once the reticule turns red. After clearing this segment, fly to the next training area.
In this segment, you'll learn the basic defensive manuevers. Make sure to learn them by heart as you'll need them in the upcoming missions. First training is flare deployment. Evade three missiles using flares to clear this lesson.
Next, you'll need to evade the missiles using evasive manuevers. Just make a sharp turn by braking hard and pitching in any direction. Kick the afterburners as you exit the turn to prevent your plane from stalling and to recover.
Once done with those two, fly to the dogfighting area. Put all the offensive and defensive manuevers you've learned moments ago and take out the assigned targets. After getting evaluated, fly to the next training area. A civilian aircraft will enter the area and you'll be asked to do a visual inspection. Approach the aircraft and watch the scene.
After the explosion, your plane will be stalled. Pitch up and hit the afterburners to recover from the freefall. Finally, you'll need to land your plane. You can turn on the assistance if you want. Slowly approach the landing field then lower the landing gear when you're prompted to do so. Carefully descend and reduce speed. Once your tires touches the ground, hit the brakes hard to stop the plane. If the angle of your landing is way off, fine tune your direction using the yaw buttons (RB/LB).
