First battery FROG-7 of the First Brigade SSM belonging to 4 Aljamel Army Corps. The commander Kamel Al-Khalid has carefully examined the report of the official scorer had happened, everything seemed as it had planned discourse. The report left on the table of his assistant and walked towards the windows of ACRV 1V14. Since she saw two hundred and fifty yards away at 9P114 vehicle crews clearing the area and leaving the vehicle ready to fire their missiles 9M21F [Frog-7]
The crews raised the flames of anti shields windshield and quickly retreated while they were firmly in place by bolts and hydraulic jacks lifted the rails of the missile firing position. The radio crackled and the officer picked up the message. "Lord, battery willing and prepared to fire." Kamel browsing the map with the target, the airport of the city of Nador. A civilian airport would surely be used to display aircraft and helicopters in the country at this time were invading hours ago. The high command had been clear, it was necessary to neutralize the equipment that might be in that airport. The armament was prepared for this task:
- The first missile equipped with a warhead of high explosive are directed against the control tower to try to put it out of operation.
- The second, also armed with a head of high explosive, are directed against the hangar to the east of the base.
- The third and fourth, armed with a head of fragmentation, full of submissions attack the parking lot east of the base.
- The fifth and sixth, armed with another head full of submissions, attack the parking lot west of the base.
- "Yes sir", "Fire", addressing the micro.
The Frog-7 were fired in rapid sequence while the other pushed to 1200 meters per second and is activated rotary engines. After the launch, the crew rushed to get into their cars, preparing to move and abandon the position, the crew also did 1V14
same. The missiles, guided by their inertial systems, quickly consumed all its fuel and began to describe its ballistic trajectory default. The high speed was closer to the white, early warning radars Kathasia sounded the alarm, but there was a unit of defense that could intercept incoming missiles. White moved quickly and systems
phone did the rest, but these were not infallible, three missiles were diverted nearly half a mile from its target by going to impact with farmland and proximity to the airport, while the remaining three followed the directions provided. Fragmentation heads opened a designated height and hundreds of bomblets dispersed quickly, however, the only missile with high explosive head reached the hangar and burst against the side of the deck, the blast and the blast blew sections metal and steel and three aircraft that were just below the point of impact were destroyed immediately. Meanwhile, the bomblets of the two remaining missiles impacted against the shelf full of helicopters, explosions, like a deadly rain blew through the air to four heavy helicopters parked on the apron, causing dreadful fire. Another eight medium helicopters suffered considerable damage but fortunately, none of them exploded.
After finishing the attack, and when the occupants of the base is realized that there would be a new attack, rushed out with fire and support vehicles to try to quell the damage caused and to clean the entire area.
Within minutes, the base commander received a disturbing report, had lost half of attack helicopters, two thirds of the heavy transport helicopters and eight of the twelve medium transport helicopters were damaged in one or other considerations. At a stroke, the enemy had left the base with more than half of the devices unusable or unavailable.
I planning SSM attack over a airport, for them, I use a battery of SSM Frog-7, selected the subsequence targets:
9K52 Luna-M [Frog-7] use Inertial guidance, and HE warhead vs Large/Small target has .40/.10 (Naval Sitrep #24, page 24) roll 14/22
- Control Tower (Small): No Hit
- Hangar (Large): Hit 75DP/120DP Critical: 75/45=1.6(1)=6+2=8
the hangar has 6 attack helicopters inside. (6)3? destroyed
9K52 Luna-M [Frog-7] use Inertial guidance, and FRAG warhead vs Large/Small pattern has .10+50/.10+20 (Naval Sitrep #30, page 14)
- 4 Parking Zone (Large).
I assume first roll for Inertial guidance hit(.40): roll 88/63/17/30 (2 hits)
Second roll for hits in parking aircraft (6 Medium and 12 Small Helos), estimate large pattern for SSM missile (.60). roll (88,76,33,50,58,32,9,64,91,44,66,26,24,55,71,78,67,43)
Assume aircraft in open 5DP 4 Medium helo hits (D6+2)(5,5,3,5) 4 destroyed 6 Small helo hits (D6/2+1)(4,2,2,3,2,3) 6 damaged
