Mega Fortress (PC)
At the mission start get into the air as fast as you can. Put your wheel brakes on while throttling up to 100% or get caught in the hangar doors. When the doors are open release the brakes and take off quickly following normal procedure. Mountains surround the base so head north once off the ground keeping a steady climb rate. Go to offensive weapons station and switch in attack radar. Decrease range to 5-10 km. Select the red batwing-shaped enemy fighter and while lock is established set the bomb control panel to 'unlatch' and 'auto'. Select an AIM-120 and launch. If this doesn't remove the enemy repeat the process until he's shot down. Shut off attack radar and switch to camera. General Elliot commands you to head west so maintain a steady climb rate over the mountains. Select time compression (warp 5) to reach the next screen. Evade friendly radar contact and simulate a crash in the ocean. Set time compression to normal (warp 1) and turn attack radar off. At the pilot station set your TAC to less than 380 feet but don't turn it on. Set throttle to 70% and go through the normal identification process when contacted by Seattle. When Elliot tells you to put on the show go into a steep dive until the analog altimeter or flight level shows -59. Air control asks if you're losing control and when you altimeter reads between 10500 and11500 switch on the TAC. Level off at around 500 feet to evade the radar. Change heading until you receive a confirmation that you've evaded radar contact. Elliot orders you to head west. Leave the TAC on but stay in camera mode on the EVS and do not switch the radar on. If you get this right you go to the next screen where you refuel. Switch the TAC off and gain altitude. Go to the offensive weapons station and use the camera mode to lock on to the KC 130 refuelling tanker. Go to the pilot station and click on 'C' in the air refuel panel. The tanker refuses so switch on attack radar and try again. You can now refuel. Switch to autopilot set throttle to 100% and go through the in-flight refuelling procedure. Set the EVS back to camera mode. You now have a full load of fuel and can go on to Kamchatka to blow up the Kavaznya radar. Remember not to use the default weapon load - remove all weapons and use a mix of AGM-136 AGM-88A AGM-84E and AGM-130s. Don't go straight for the laser but for laser radar and save some long-range missiles for it.
