"Operation Raccoon Hunt" Lone Wolf is a secret mission for John Rundal in Airforce Delta Strike. A derivative of this mission, called Far Behind, is played from Ken Thomas and Ruth Valentine's point of view.
The area next to Delta Squadron has the fighter squad that's closest to their targets (tornado generators). While all other Delta pilots make a detour through there to deal with the tornado generators, John Rundal heads to this area to deal with the fighter squad in an effort to improve his score. The dialogue in the Intercept mission before Twister changes if John is being played as. Enemies in this mission are Jian-Ji 8 "Finback A"s, Jian-Ji 8IIM "Finback B"s, Jian-Ji 7 MGs, Francine Davout, Jake Emerson, both piloting MiG-31BM "Foxhound"s, and an A-50 "Mainstay". After some fighting, Ken Thomas and Ruth Valentine eventually show up and everyone bugs out.
A big dogfight with many planes. At the start of the mission, you have no allies to cover you or draw fire away from you so you'd better do your best to dodge the enemy planes' missiles as they do a lot of damage. Francine and Jake in their Foxhounds are also fairly threatening. As mentioned in the trivia, you can shoot down either or both of them and that causes the rest of the planes to withdraw earlier than normal. Depending on how you play the mission, Ken and Ruth will eventually appear and, as mentioned, the planes will withdraw. A few planes will linger and you can shoot them down if you want, but you'll have to eventually leave the battlefield before the time runs out to avoid failing the mission.
|Jian-Ji 8 "Finback A"||2||D||12,000|
|Jian-Ji 8IIM "Finback B"||2||C||12,000|
The reward for this mission is 60,000 credits plus a variable amount depending on the number of enemies shot down as well as the type of weapon used. The ability to go on to Phase 5 with the missions Iceberg and Doll Master is unlocked. John's F-106A Delta Dart is also unlocked for 105,000 credits. Completing this mission also contributes to unlocking Far Behind which also requires John's game completion medal to be earned and Twister to be played with either Ruth or Ken.
