Waves of Struggle on Palaks Bay is the first mission of the Elesia province story arc in Airforce Delta Storm.
There are many ships in the water (Fifteen total), but you have to destroy only six of them. If you don't destroy them within a certain amount of time though, they will converge into a fleet and you will fail the mission. As with previous missions that involved destroying enemy ships, you should also be careful taking out the ships here as they fire bullets and missiles at you almost nonstop. There are six planes in the air, but you have to shoot only two of them down. The mission is completed once all targets are destroyed/shot down.
- Destroy/Shoot down all targets before the target ships converge into a fleet.
The reward for this mission is 80,000 credits plus a variable amount depending on the number of enemies taken out and, in the case of the planes, how they were taken out. Oil SOS is unlocked. The F/A-18E Super Hornet and the F-20 Tigershark are also unlocked for 370,000 credits and 300,000 credits respectively.
Establishing a viable bridgehead is absolutely vital for our plans to seize the Elesia (erroneously written as 'Elcia' in-game) province from the enemy. In order to accomplish this, you are being dispatched to attack and destroy the United Forces patrol ships in Palaks Bay. Join forces with the Allied Forces 12th Division currently invading the bay to accomplish your mission. Over and out.
Delta Leader: (When mission is selected on the map) Our mission this time is to attack and annihilate the enemy fleet in Palaks Bay. Sink the enemy ships before they can form up. Hope you're ready for a good fight, people.
Delta 2?: (When the target ships get closer together after approximately 4 minutes and 12 seconds into the mission) The enemy fleet is about to converge! (When the enemy fleet converges after approximately 6 minutes and 1 second into the mission) Enemy fleet converged.
[mission fails if enemy fleet converges]
[mission is completed once all targets are destroyed/shot down]
