A Suppression of Enemy Air Defense (SEAD) strike is one of the most dangerous types of
combat missions, because you're often flying into the teeth of the enemy's air-defense
network. The best course of action is to reduce speed whenever you enter a SAM's radar
range and then stay out of its firing radius. Next, transition into a hover-hold position,
engage the bob up system, and, finally, fire on the missile battery from extreme range,
preferably from behind a hill or low-lying obstacle. Don't forget that you may be able
to hold off and call in an air or artillery strike to eliminate heavily defended enemy
If you're flying the Comanche and are tasked with a reconnaissance or Battle Damage
Assessment (BDA) mission, remember to modify your gunship by switching to a low-observable
configuration. Removing the stubby wings will reduce your radar profile, making your
aircraft much harder to spot on enemy radar screens.
Try to keep the air-to-ground and air-to-air radar systems switched off until you reach
the primary target. An active radar system will call attention to your whereabouts and
alert nearby SAM batteries to your approximate position, making it much harder for you
to complete your mission.
At night and during inclement weather, make sure to switch on the Pilot Night Vision
System (PNVS). The PNVS will enable you to see enemy targets much more clearly than
might otherwise be the case. It will also amplify other potential hazards, such as
power lines, buildings, and hillsides, making it much easier for you to maintain a
map-of-the-earth flying profile.
