228 posts in this topic

RTBed to Folkstone and took off again with bob1724 - went for factories, but had not enough altitude and was jumped by a 109 - he got me good, but I was able to bail out in time.

lol @ being a despawner.

Two 111s and two E4s hit, one of each killed.

Attempt at aerial bombardment for the second 111: Failure :mad:

Landed with half of my bombs and ammo left... shouldn't have chased the 109 down to confirm.

Flew a 111.

8 bombs on factory, all hits.

1 hurri kill with tailgunner, Cerpin

And a successful RTB

My engine block took damage from a 109 before I engaged you bombers, so my engine was ticking then gave out as I was closing. Think you got last hit before it finally seized. Managed to glide back to base, so I'm still in the fight to give Jerry what for :D

3 hits on 111s

killed a 110

Our group (13th with friends - in hurricanes) were patroling SE of Dover, met up with a load of 111's and escorts (AWESOME sight!!).

Got a kill on Kizmet (111) - and some damn 111 took out my engine with its guns (embarrasing) - as I was RTBing I saw a 110 - being not too hurt I took it on and got some shots in on it - no kill though.

RTBed to Folkstone and took off again with bob1724 - went for factories, but had not enough altitude and was jumped by a 109 - he got me good, but I was able to bail out in time.

Kills: 1 x 111

Dead: No lived, and was back at the AF in time for tea!

Sorry Szy- it gave me the credit :) on your hurri.

Wicked cool event!

I got 8 hits on hurris- 2 kills Szy & Apauc. Got killed by the horde on rtb- xhammerx

Hurricane I - RTB (had to leave to eat, but gf decided to cook because I spend my time BOBbing with you guys :) )

2 HE111 Shot down (Hastati and can't remember)

Flew with Hammered 8 ship group, made contact east of Deal at 10 km / 30k feet with 109. Ignored and waited for bombers.

Had one 109 nearly bouncing me after I dropped to 20k feet with only 800 rounds left. Evaded him by Split-S and RTBd

1 109E4 Kill - Teetwo

3 109E4 Damages.

I had to pop out as He111's were entering BC line (had to pick up girlfriend) so only got to lift after drop, raced east and got into a big furball over the sea. Was fun!

Will be going again in 2 hours for the next run!

Got a good engine hit on HE111 but got pilot hit by tail gunner.

Landed using trim but he got the kill.

Main accomplishment is actually getting Blen1 up to 26k ft

Good fun

Seems like the axis were lacking in escort numbers, hopefully that'll get adjusted with the next run.

Also think the bombers need more time to form up, we were still climbing when we hit the channel.

Wildcat's flight: Alcolix, Flipflap, Coopes and I, all in Hurricanes.

Coopes was killed at the very start of the fight (we didn't even see what got him, actually), then Flipflap and I killed Tzsulcha's bomber near Dover, and a bit later we chased Dennisb's 111 and got him too over Canterbury, while Alcolix shot another 111 down a bit N.

Alcolix, Flipflap and I were able to RTB, with almost no fuel left. :)

So the result is: 3 RTB, 1 KIA for 3x111 killed.

Coming in on your bomber group was certainly very impressive. Thought we'd just found 110s so dropped in on them, then noticed the 111s below, then all of a sudden a crap load of 109s came from nowhere and dove in with us :D Awesome stuff.

Oh yeah, allied fighters out numbered axis and most players were told to take E1s or 110s when there was still e4 room, which is why there were only 5 e4s total.

kills: 109 and 110

RTB

AAR: Dived on the enemy formation, blew up a 109 since no 111 was in sight. Then had 4 109s on my 6 and took them all the way down to Ramsgate, where a damaged friendly showed up. 2 109s broke before reaching flak, 109 was shot down by flak and 110 I shot down later.

I found it very hard to do high speed fights in the hurricane as I always killed my stamina almost immediately, losing any options to maneuver.

Should have been more E-4 then that.

It was hectic to get thing fixed and organized, next round will make sure E4's are there..
