The Memoirs of Lieutenant Colonel Carl T. LaFong

The Marines were in position for the attack and we were going to support their mission by intercepting Kilrathi troop ships as they moved toward Firekka.

Mission Profile:

Hunter and I were ordered to fly a two-point search-and-destroy mission. Our intended targets were Kilrathi troop transports.

Mission Chronology:

1. Three Salthi, one piloted by Drakhai, attacked 15,729 km from Nav 1. Five Salthi attacked 3500 kilometers from the nav point.
2. Two wings of Dralthi found escorting two Dorkir transports 86,616 kilometers from Nav 2.
3. Asteroid field discovered 16,755 kilometers from Nav 2.
4. Two Hhriss attacked in the asteroids when we were 3000 kilometers from Nav 2.

Post-Mission Analysis:

When we found the Dorkir and their escorts, we knew we had to act fast to prevent them from jumping before we had the chance to destroy them. I targeted the group on the right and sent Hunter to attack my target. Then I turned left to attack the second group on my own.

With the Raptors' heavy armor, we could take the Dralthi head-on and didn't have to evade their first rush. It gave us the advantage of inflicting some damage right away with our full guns. We followed with our heat-seekers, image recognition, and Pilum missiles to get the job done fast, then turned on the Dorkir. We attacked each Dorkir together, hitting the after-burners to get close fast and using our full guns from the rear in an aggressive attack at close range.
