Pentagon Confirms Combat Operations In Northern Georgia

As attack jets returned to the flight deck of the USS John C. Stennis, the Pentagon confirmed a strike mission had been ordered on an airfield that had been overrun by Russian commandos.  F/A-18 Hornets of the famed VFA-41 Black Aces squadron carried out the attack, inflicting heavy damage on military vehicles and aircraft at the site.  One Hornet was lost to anti-air fire.  Hit at low altitude, the pilot was unable to eject before his plane crashed.  The pilot has not been identified pending notification of next of kin.  All remaining aircraft recovered safely aboard Stennis, despite heavy fog conditions.  DoD sources used the codename Operation Savior in describing the attack, though it is not yet known if this is an official designation, or if further combat missions are expected.

VFA-41 pilot Specter has accepted assignment to duty as Operations Officer and been promoted to the rank of Lieutenant Junior Grade (LTJG) commensurate with the responsibilities associated with that assignment.  As "Ops Boss," LTJG Specter will be responsible for acquiring and preparing missions, scheduling flights, and assigning pilots to missions.  As one of the newest Black Aces, he has already demonstrated exceptional commitment and dedication to the squadron.

VFA-41 Conducts Recon Mission

DOD sources confirmed that F/A-18C Hornet fighter jets of the famed Black Aces squadron, flying from the aircraft carrier John C. Stennis, were tasked with conducting a reconnaissance flight over an area known to have an abandoned factory, but rumored to have become a source of chemical weapons.  Imagery captured during the flight clearly showed that the factory is indeed in operation.  Armored vehicles parked around the factory are also a troubling detail that will probably warrant further action.  Mission details may be viewed HERE.
