My hat is off to you. The counter-measures mission is as tough as they come. I immediately ask the tower for direct approach clearance, then go to the bag-o-tricks. I've tried the all the techniques covered in the briefing and still get whacked every time. If they weren't using guns, it would be easier, but it's always the bullets that get me.
Just tried this one, got it on the first try, but it is tricky...
Since fuel isn't important here I slammed it to full power and went full speed ahead with a nose down attitude.
When I came up on the airfield I declare a "Teardrop approach" and I had 900 knots Indicated AirSpeed as I slam the power to idle and deploy speed brakes.
A quick sweeping turn towards the designated runway bleeds me down past 500 knots and down to 260.
I deploy the gear and 240 knots and dow a touchdown at roughly 200 knots...
Definitly calls for some speedy moves that one, not something you see in the "real world" of TAW.
