This mission requires you to remain at low level, is timed, your main targets are a set of power generators, with some SEAD (anti-SAM/AA).

There is an "EMP" field which will kill you if you stray into it, you need to stay low, and be warned, there are some mountains that will protrude over the field, and you may need to judge if the risk of dying is worth a quicker kill on a node.

If you get caught by the patrolling fighters it's game over on the harder levels, so don't bother with multi-AA loadouts if you are playing at Elite level.

Best choice is anything fast, with Radar missiles, if you can get the Mig-25 or F-111 with these missiles, I'd use them, as they will be useful for engaging the SAM sites from outside their range.

Stay low, stay fast, use the Joint Strike Missile on the nodes, and as long as you avoid the enemy fighter patrols, you should finish this mission with at least a few minutes to spare.
