We expect Rustovokian ground forces to attempt an ambush along the road. The royal limousine will not stop driving forward on the road for any reason and will not react in any way to being attacked. You must scout ahead to locate and destroy the enemy units lying in wait before the limousine drives too close.
The airspace along the road is heavily defended by Rustovokian anti-aircraft units. The SAM umbrellas will be visible on your map and if you stray into any of these areas you will come under immediate attack by enemy missiles.
You can sneak below the radar detection by flying at approximately eight feet. Your wingman can fly through the SAM umbrellas without triggering the SAM launchers, but he will be too busy yelling about you shooting a missile to help in any other way.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
