Im doing the vmfa 212 campaign in ODS and have just flown a really cool mission into central baghdad to blow up a nuclear research facility. having completed the mission i was awarded the MOH. I was just wondering if this is a random occurence or whas it becuase i hit a nuclear target. There were no enemy CAPs about and i simple ingressed dropped 2 2000lbers on target and egressed. got shot at by a few zpus but that was about it. Any idea why i got the MOH?

 

cheers

Its based on target point value. You score a lot of points you get the medal.

Lucky you.

 

I had a nightmare of a mission when doing some armed recce an obscene distance from base and in weather that was positively horrible for this kind of mission.

 

After a terrible start, things got sorted and an Iraqi convoy was blown to bits. Was awarded the Silver Star for my efforts.

 

Bad news was that my wingman, who i sent home after he was winchester, was shot down by a Mig.
