In a Blitzkrieg scenario, IDF forces supported by US forces are pushing north into Syria's territory from the ground, while also securing the town of Sur via an amphibious assault (753rd Amphibian Assault Battalion) hours ago, and are now attempting a pincer movement with the goal to separate the Syrian forces south of Sur from their main force to the north.
To avoid being cut-off, Syrian forces currently engaged at the FLOT are attempting to perform a tactical retreat to the North, being supported by the 1st Syrian Air Defense Battalion - consisting of SA-2 and short range weapons, currently forbidding IDF / NATO aircraft to properly provide Close Air Support and Air Interdiction feet dry to the north of the FLOT.

Acting as Package 745, they will be comprised of two 4-ship flights - Bulldog 5 (SEAD) and Plasma 5 (DEAD).
Lancer 4 - 4 ship - F-15C IAF - Patrolling 25-30 nm West of Sur, feet wet - will be providing DCA / Air-to-Air support.
