    Default Scenario 10 - THE PROTOTYPE - 12th Dec 1917 - by Marechallannes

    Over the Trenches - Mission 10 - The Prototype




    Due to the achievements of your squadron, the Headquarter decided to test a prototype under „front-conditions“. You are the lucky one to test it in a sector near the front, without aerial activities the last two weeks.

    You are not allowed to go for a fight, but there are no direct orders what to do when an enemy plane attacks - as far as you could remember. So it was no question that you engage a lone enemy plane, spotted over no-man’s land.


    Who is the attacker:

    You

    Your flight consists of:

    Your plane - starting 2 rulers away from no-man’s-land/enemy plane - over your side

    Enemy planes:

    1 scout/two-seater over no-man’s land

    After turn 3 another scout/two-seater coming from the enemy side - 2 rulers away - heading directly for your position

    Both planes accept the fight and try to shoot your plane down

    Playing area:

    One or two game mats with no-man’s-land in the middle

    Winning conditions:

    Damage the first encountered plane with 75 % of his hit points or shoot him down and return to base.


    Special rules:

    a) Use a Sopwith Snipe as Bulldog pilot / use a Fokker D.VII/ UFAG C.1 as Eagle pilot

    or

    any Entente/Central Power late war scout/two-seater/prototype model/scratch build for this mission. (something that fits in your opinion)

    b) After turn 3 before you plan the maneuvers for turn 4:

    Roll a 1d6:

    1. Nothing happens *
    2. Gun Jam **
    3. Engine damage
    4. Engine damage
    5. Engine damage
    6. Smoke damage***


    * roll again after turn 6 (if you roll 1 again - everything is ok)
    ** after the three maneuvers of jam you got only a “B”-firing MG because something is wrong with the amunition inlet / if you had only a “B”-firing MG from the beginning – everything is ok
    *** three maneuvers later, your plane gets an automatic fire damage

    All damages a cumulative to other special damages! Engine and fire damages are handled as normal.

    Deadline 31th August

    A Spy reported, that the Austrians tested a prototype at the Isonzo Front, too...

    A very interesting mission Sven. I may even pit my prototype Dolphin against a prototype enemy aircraft.

    I read the damage preprogrammed system you had prepared for the prototype, Sven, and I'm sure it's gonna be a hairy/deadly mission:seroius:
    I thought we would have a nice evening patrol in a factory new machine...

    I am about to fly this mission, but I am rather limited on my choice of aircraft as I do not have many in my collection. What do people recommend if I have only the Famous Aces and a Rumpler in my collection?

    Sean,

    1. Play with cards only (you should have a Snipe or D.VII there),
    2. Print cards from file section.
    Maneuver cards...hmmm... I'm sure you can find them in the file section too.
