Command cannot have this so Draggin's are tasked to eleminate the threat. Unfortuately, we've discovered this new Red base is protected by a SA-6. The 225th will be joining in the efforts by eleminating the SA-6. The issue is the Draggins will only have a few minutes of play time to get in, hit the targets and get out because Red has some other SAM systems we haven't ID'd yet. We will have JTAC in the hills above that will call when the area is safe to hit, so be ready! Don't forget to RSVP! Draggin_0527_T0505_JO_Kneeboard.zip

    Suspected terrorists have taken an oil rig in-between the island of Sir Abu Nuayr and Siri Island. Seal team Bravo has been tasked with clearing it and taking he station back. The terrorists are believed to have Iranian warships that were decommissioned in the area and those need to be sunk. We know that oil rig had 3 high profile UAE diplomats getting a tour at the time and it is possible they were kidnapped. Draggin flight are the closet US assets in the area so they will be providing air support for the Gunrunners as they insert the Seal team.
