Doomsday Commander - Chapter 310
Chapter 310 Road to Death
The F14 fighter jet and the F15 are both leaders among the third-generation aircraft, but the F14 is a carrier-based aircraft.
One of its biggest features is that its wings can be folded, which can save deck space to the greatest extent.
In terms of all aspects of fighter aircraft performance, the F14 is the king among them.
In terms of weapons, a 20 mm caliber Gatling cannon may not be of much use when facing an armored group, but the eight missiles carried on the aircraft are definitely deadly weapons.
Moreover, the aircraft’s built-in jamming radar can even interfere with the flight trajectory of enemy missiles.
Normally, the main combat skills of F14 are anti-aircraft, which is relatively rare when facing ground troops completely.
Originally, most of the missiles it carried were air-to-air missiles, such as Sidewinder and Sparrow missiles.
However, this kind of missile can be adjusted. For this mission, they carried air-to-surface missiles.
Starting from the sea not far away, in less than two minutes, we had already reached the sky above Didui Island.
This is the ring road, and the armored group on Didicui Island is crossing here and speeding straight towards the villa area.
The arrival of the F14 battle group did not even attract the attention of the armored forces.
The sky at night is pitch black, but over the battle area in the villa area ahead, there are still a large number of flares rising from time to time.
Flying in this flickering environment, this group of F14s look like ghosts.
On the first fighter plane, the pilot looked at the light spots gradually appearing in front of the radar screen.
Each point of light represents a car.
The pilot picked up the walkie-talkie and broadcast the current position to the mothership.
“Dongdong Yao is calling the command center. Dongdong Yao is calling the command center. I am already close to the target position. I expect to make contact in sixty seconds. Please give instructions.”
Soon, a reply came from the aircraft carrier.
“All units, please note that your first formation from Dongdong Yao to Dongdong 5 will not carry out the first wave of strike missions, but will hover like a lighthouse over the target area. There is still an air force on Didui Island. You must ensure that the first wave of strikes is carried out. The attack proceeds smoothly, and after the first wave of attacks, the second formation will exchange tasks with you, and so on.”
“After thirty seconds, execute the attack!”
The aircraft carrier command issued an order, and the carrier-based aircraft began to disperse.
The five F14s broke away from the large force and began to turn around, and performed a lighthouse-style hover over the combat area.
The so-called lighthouse hovering means that the aircraft flies around a fixed target.
This kind of action can be used for offense or warning. Generally suitable aircraft are some old-fashioned fighter jets, gunships and other types of aircraft.
Third-generation aircraft like the F14, because they are too fast, have to make larger circles for this kind of circling, and because they carry missiles, there are not many such circlings anymore, and they are basically done with Come patrol and watch.
Their mission now is to be vigilant.
The air force on Didui Island suffered heavy losses, but it was not completely wiped out. There was no telling whether they might come again, so for the sake of battlefield safety, vigilance must be taken.
Five fighter jets made lighthouse hovers, turning this area into a restricted area. It was impossible for the air force on Didui Island to intervene.
The thirty fighter jets behind, as well as the seven Apaches that followed, were all put into the strike group.
The reporter from Didui Island TV was not only following and filming the large troops attacking the villa area, but also a drone was filming the march of the armored troops.
In this situation, they are not worried about leaks, because in their opinion, there are almost no secrets from both sides at this moment, and everyone’s strength is displayed there.
So the task of following the armored troops was also going on at the same time. Picture-in-picture technology was also used on the TV to set up a small screen to film the marching of the armored troops.
The people on Didui Island looked at two pictures almost at the same time.
The frontal battle in the villa area has begun. Facing the fierce concentrated firepower of the Light Chaser Army, their troops are moving forward to attack one after another.
This kind of real war scene is very different from watching TV series.
The scene on TV of machine guns roaring and enemies falling to the ground on a large scale is almost impossible to appear in actual combat.
When the opponent has sufficient firepower, charging headlong is something that a fool would do. Everyone needs to move forward in a roundabout way, find bunkers, and then attack the enemy while preserving themselves as much as possible.
If it is in a complex environment, so-called precise shooting is rare.
The people on the opposite side are humans instead of zombies. They are more flexible and know better about seizing opportunities. It is not allowed to show up on the battlefield rashly. Under normal circumstances, they are suppressed by fire.
Raise your gun and shoot in the general direction to suppress, creating opportunities for snipers and rocket launchers behind you. That is what ordinary soldiers should do.
A field battle, street battle, etc. may last for several days or even more than ten days.
The Light Chasing Army took advantage of the location and began defensive operations, while the Didicui Island came overwhelmingly and began to attack based on their numerical advantage.
However, when the battle just started, the scene did not look intense.
The soldiers on Didicui Island also advanced in a roundabout way, moving slowly and not charging recklessly.
Although the Light Chasing Army is landing, it is too dangerous to charge rashly. They are still waiting for the armored forces to come over, and infantry and tanks are fighting together. So the sound of gunshots kept ringing on the screen, but the progress of the battle did not speed up at all. For a long time, the large troops of Didicui Island were gathering mushrooms at the edge of the villa area.
This lack of progress made the people on Didicui Island anxious and blistered at the corners of their mouths.
They all hope that the armored troops will arrive as soon as possible, launch an attack together with the infantry, and kill the Light Chasers as soon as possible.
So many people have adjusted the main screen to the armored unit. Even if they don’t adjust, they are still paying attention to it all the time.
Just when they were watching the armored forces with all their attention, something unexpected happened.
What they saw was the perspective of the TV station’s drone, looking down from a high altitude and watching the progress of the long steel dragon.
And suddenly, a flash of fire flashed across the TV screen!
That was a missile, with flames on its tail, falling from the sky at an extremely fast speed!
The first tank in front of the army immediately suffered a devastating blow!
A ball of fire shot up into the sky with the explosion. The rising flame seemed to make the people in front of the TV screen feel the temperature as if they were watching a 3D movie.
This sudden change made many people in front of the TV instinctively lean back and stare in shock!
But their astonishment will soon turn into shock and collapse!
Swish swish swish~~!
Missiles fell from the sky one after another and began to bombard the armored clusters on the ground indiscriminately.
Whether it is a tank or an armored vehicle, it is completely powerless to resist such an attack by an air-to-surface missile.
A tank was hit by a big explosion. On the armored vehicle behind it, the shooter of the anti-aircraft machine gun barely got out of the skylight, trying to set up the machine gun to shoot at the enemies in the sky.
But he soon despaired.
Because what arrived was not a helicopter, but a fighter jet!
And they are not the kind of old-fashioned fighter jets that drop bombs at all. Their speed is simply ridiculous. When you see it, it has already flown far away.
That kind of speed of about Mach 2.4 per hour is simply not something that weapons like anti-aircraft machine guns can deal with.
They are far in the sky. Once a missile comes down, it will immediately destroy a tank. Without the protection of the surface-to-air missile vehicle, they are completely targets.
The soldier desperately pulled the trigger, and the bullets shot into the sky in vain and powerlessly, not even touching a hair on the fighter plane.
A missile fell from the sky and destroyed the armored vehicle.
Facing the sudden blow, the armored troops were completely stunned.
They were unable to effectively fight back against the enemy. They could only turn around in a panic and try to return to the original route.
Because the front had become a sea of fire, and many destroyed vehicles were parked on the road, blocking the path of the chariots behind.
So they could only turn back, trying to re-enter the interior of the island, and use the terrain to avoid enemy aircraft attacks.
At this time, something desperate happened again.
Seven Apache helicopter gunships appeared at the rear of the armored force and launched missiles from a distance as soon as they appeared.
Hellfire’s missiles are designed to attack ground armored targets. Under precise laser guidance, they fire one at a time, without exception.
In terms of lethality and efficiency against ground armored targets alone, the Apache is still above the F14.
The helicopters were hovering at a high altitude, beyond the range of anti-aircraft machine guns, but their missiles could easily attack the enemy.
The tanks and combat vehicles on Didicui Island are not equipped with missiles, which is their fatal flaw. It is a gap that cannot be bridged.
The destruction of the tanks in the rear was not the most fatal thing. The most fatal thing was that they blocked the way to retreat.
At this moment, this armored unit was unable to move forward or retreat. It became a turtle in a jar on the Ring Island Expressway and in the area near the beach.
Even though they have more than a thousand combat units, these dozens of fighter planes are a dimensionality reduction blow that they cannot resist.
Missiles fell from the sky one after another, and **** of fire bloomed in the dark night. The armored clusters with nowhere to escape even fled to the beach and the sea.
But no matter where they fled, they could not escape the incoming missile. This kind of unequal battle completely caused the armored group on Didui Island to collapse.
The soldiers began to escape from the tank and ran away on their own feet. After all, in their opinion, the fighter jets of the Light Chasing Army would not waste a precious missile for a small shrimp like themselves.
And this is also true. Fighters simply ignored the fleeing soldiers. They just caught the tanks and armored vehicles and beat them.
Seeing this situation, more and more soldiers began to abandon their vehicles and flee, and soon a torrent of defeated soldiers formed.
And those armored vehicles and tanks that were regarded as life-saving straws and attack vanguards in the villa area were discarded everywhere like garbage, becoming the targets of the Light Chasing Army.
However, the Light-Chasing Army did not attack the unmanned vehicles, but instead stared at the manned vehicles and pursued them fiercely.
Continuous explosions continued one after another, and the flames of war lit up half the sky.
The thick smoke of gunpowder enveloped the earth, and a road more than ten kilometers long became a veritable road of death!
