The Cold War Turns Hot:
A sinister cold war plot has been uncovered by German secret
agents. During the cold war years, hardliners recruited westerners to join hate
groups. They trained them in tank tactics, engineering and surface to air
missiles in the east. They were sent back to the west with smuggled tank parts,
equipment and SAMs to secret locations near airbase, hiding out and assembling
them in places like old barns. The hardliner's goal was to use this group as the
head of the spear against our air bases here and make it easier for their main
invasion. This group, now known as the German Protection Union, has a bold, new
leader. The secret agents discovered this nest and had a small skirmish and had
to retreat wounded. With nowhere to go, the group is planning an all out suicide
terrorist attack. With US aircraft stretched thin in other conflicts they see
this as their time to become terrorist superstars. Well...not if it's up to you!
It's the year 2008 and the G8 summit is to be held in Japan. The
A-10 is based out of Yakota Airbase Japan and is to fly security homeland
defense as a show of presence around Tokyo bay area. All is normal in the flight
while making medium altitude loops around the bay with only a few advertising
blimps floating around. The A-10 is called to action amid reports of a missile
launch. Can you uncover the terrorist plot that surrounds Japan?
