This mission has Air to Air and Anti-Surface (naval) elements.

Your plane selection should be, if possible, something with AA-Missiles and either free fall bombs or rockets. If you are playing at "Elite" level you may want to choose a multi-role plane with Free Fall Bombs.

The start of the mission requires you to protect a US Fleet against incoming threats. You won't even be fired upon, so you just need to make sure you do everything as fast as possible and get rid of the enemy units before they can hurt the US Fleet.

The 2nd part of the mission you will need to destroy a large Surface fleet, made up of Destroyers, Cruisers and a Carrier.

After the transition to the anti-surface part of the mission, you will be attacked by a handful of enemy planes. Make sure you kill these first as quickly as possible, as it triggers the checkpoint for this part of the mission.

Use your wingmen on the enemy ship's escorts (they will not get killed, and can kill a ship reasonably fast), and try to pick off the edge of the enemy fleet.

Once you have whittled down the enemy fleet, bomb the enemy carrier. If you have Free Fall bombs, this may take 3 or 4 passes.

If you took rockets, you may be able to shoot from the carrier from outside it's SAM/AA range but it may take longer.

If you took neither, you will need to make your attack with basic missiles.
