Ended patrol some time ago: http://mpserver15.flightgear.org/modules/fgtracker/?FUNCT=FLIGHT&FLIGHTID=6710674



Encountered an OPFOR aircraft half way who was flying towards KXTA at low alt pretending to use a "shortcut" to KSFO while he was always changing route pretending to have AP issues. After some time I've warned and followed him, he crashed onto a mountain.

I'd like to propose some more NOTAM/patrol areas so we don't always go in the same places:

- NORAD Cheyenne Mountain Complex, Colorado Springs, CO.
(Class C airspace) SFC to 20,000' - indefinite
REASON: National Security

- Alaskan airspace, AK.
indefinite
REASON: National Security

- Merritt Island-Cape Canaveral AFS, FL.
Permanent Prohibited Airspace - indefinite
REASON: NASA-US military operations

- Baltic States (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania).
airspace interdiction - indefinite
REASON: NATO air-policing mission to guard Baltics' airspace

I've just finished my patrol around Nevada.



Encountered an OPFOR aircraft with filled flightplan which later had system failures and landed at 1L1. After landing there too a "faster" troll spawned there and started shooting at me while on ground and typing nonsense things.
After that I've returned back at Nellis and performed a few basic military approach maneuvers.

Patrols updated.

In light of our realism discussion, remember to treat these realistically. Just because there is and OPFOR callsign in the vicinity of restricted airspace doesn't give you the right to interrogate or intercept.

Patrol ended a few minutes ago, and went bad.



At first nothing to report, no planes in range and calm all around then an OPFOR target (MiG-21) popped up on my radar flying towards me, after clarifying intentions and flight plan he got closer and shot a missile which let me without 1 engine and essential controls so I crashed some miles away from Atlanta, NV not far from the Utah border.
The I got back with an F-15D from Creech AFB to attack the OPFOR22 but it was gone.
By the time I was about to reach KXTA I typed "Skies are not safe yet", one second later OPFOR22 spawned again at KINS and I turned back over there and shoot 2 AIM-120s which hit it at 0.3m. He fired an AIM-54 but it hit terrain.
While I was about to start landing procedure at Creech he spawned again this time at KTNX, so I diverted full throttle towards him, shoot 2 missiles which missed target, he also fired back without success. Low on fuel, I kept dodging missiles while tempting to reach as soon as possible Tonopah Test Range to refuel and get back in the fight but some meters before reaching the runway a missile hit me at 3.5m and I crashed next to the runway.

Not a good way to start the year at all.

Here are the logs:

- https://fgtracker.ml/modules/fgtracker/?FUNCT=FLIGHT&FLIGHTID=6854035

Next time I'll be more aggressive regarding this cases.
