In the many years after the Gulf War, Iraq continues to threaten regional and world peace. Stability and peace in the Gulf are in peril. The U. S. is deeply concernedaction must be taken. Another war is imminent. The famed MiG-29 Fulcrum and the country of Iraq provide the backdrop for a top secret U. S. air strike and form the basis for a special-ops air war like one never attempted beforea daring mission against all odds. The stage is set for war. The MiG-29 Fulcrum is the quintessential foreign fighter of our day. Iraq is the ultimate enemy. A simple twist of fate, a modern-day aerial Trojan Horse, and an unlikely air strike mission turn into an ironic plot of tactical deception in the very act of war. These two pilots are American mercenaries, fighter jocks paid to fight a secret war flying the premiere jet combat fighter in the Iraqi arsenal. Flown with two MiG-29 Fulcrums, the Soviet-made state-of-the-art ultimate enemy fighter painted in Iraqi colors it is the ultimate deception in aerial combat. This is the very story of the Second Gulf War. Sometimes an act of war is not what anyone can believethe very act of war of one nation against another that most would claim is improbable, unbelievable, unimaginable, and even impossible. For this night,they are the enemy.
