    F-16
    COMBAT PILOT

    I'm primed for action as my F-16 leaves the runway. This time my mission is to destroy a battalion of tanks. Suddenly, threat warning - interceptors closing fast! I quickly select dogfight mode and aim a Sidewinder. We both fire at the same time - chaff and a high-g turn out manoeuvres his missile. A loud explosion tells me he is not so lucky.

    Flying fast and low, I turn my F-16 towards my target. Time to switch on the ground radar and arm the laser-guided Mavericks. I fire six missiles in quick succession. Lantirn automatically locking on to each tank. With flak bursting around me I dive for cover and head for home. Approaching base, I contact the tower and request a talkdown for my night landing.
