The SAVAF fighter Squadron are still lazing around on the Retreat. But it is just as well.

Intel has been received of an uprising on the island of Marie Louise in the Seychelles. It would appear that the local inhabitants are being terrorised by rogue Pirates who are making their lives very uncomfortable.

The Seychelles Authorities have appealed to the SAVAF to assist in chasing off the Pirates.


Fly to Marie Louise and perform scare tactics on the pirates.


Scramble from the SAVAF Retreat (ZASR) and route hdg 060*, FL 420, M1.4 to Marie Louise (FSMA).
Perform an ops decent at 30NM from the island to 1000ASL.
Fly two low level runs over the airfield, where the Pirates are suspected of being holed up. Carry out any actions required to remove the Pirates from the Island.
When complete, pitch up to FL410 and route hdg 214*, M1.4 to overfly Farquhar island (FSFA).
Finally route 277* to recover to the Retreat (ZASR).
This will probably be the last sortie to be completed before the SAVAF return home.
