A division of the Egyptian Army ground forces is in desperate need of ammo and medical equipment while fighting against Islamist extremists on the Sinai Peninsula. Your objective is to fly an Egypt Air Force Lockheed Martin C130H right into the brink of the war zone to deliver these highly anticipated supplies.
In the year of 2011, a war between Islamist militants and Egyptian Security Forces broke out during the Egyptian Crisis (which saw the overthrow of longtime Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak during the Egyptian Revolution of 2011). These militants saw their opportunity to gain the Sinai territory while the government was consumed in chaos. Although they never gained full control of the land, the fighting still continues to this day. A recent failed attempt to assassinate the Interior & Defense Ministers (Magdi-Abdel-Ghaffar and Sedki Sobhy) was carried out at El Arish International Airport in December of 2017, resulting in the death of one officer (as well as the injuries of two others). Despite the close proximity to Israel, additional fighting has recently broken out just twenty miles south of the Gaza Strip. You and your aircraft have been called upon to transport much-needed ammo and medical supplies to Egyptian Army troops positioned at El Gora Airport (Egypt controlled), which is just thirteen miles off the southern tip of the Gaza Strip. Fail to deliver these crucial supplies and this operation could very well be a bust. On behalf of the Egyptian Army and Air Force, we are counting on you soldier.
