Tutorial 5: Combined Gun and Rocket Attack
By using a combination of guns and rockets, you'll be able to hit targets further away—before they can get ready to attack you.
You'll attack the same group of soft and hard targets that, in the last exercise, you hit with the gun only. This time, use rockets for the soft targets (infantry) and use the gun on hard targets (BMPs, bunkers, and SAMs). Putting a couple of rockets near these hard targets may suppress them enough to let you get within gun range before they fire a shot.
Follow the attack plan as shown on the map, switching back and forth between guns and rockets as the targets require. By using this technique and the jammers, you should receive fewer enemy hits than you did using the gun alone.
Once all of the targets are destroyed, set the INS for the base and return home.
