Scenario 2 Turns 14-15

[SIZE=4]Turn 14[/SIZE]
The RE8 from 16 Sqn (Counter 2) has one hex left to recon, but a navigation error sends them further into Hun land than they wanted. Little do they know, a German flight has just launched from Phalempin and is heading towards them.

To the south of Lens, 43 Sqn (Counter 6) spots the remaining planes of Jasta 11. Intending to drive them off,

Scenario 2, Turns 12 and 13

[SIZE=4]Turn 13[/SIZE]
The furball over Cite de Rollencourt broke up with planes scattering only hundreds of feet above the ground.

Jasta 11 (counter B) suffered the loss of 3 Fokker D.VIIs as Schmeling (counter G) couldn't pull out of his low attitude spin and crashed into the ground. German troops found him dead. Knapp’s plane fell from the sky on fire, crashing into a barn, starting a fire. Goetz’s plane crashed into a stand of trees, and German troops found him hanging

Scenario 2[/SIZE]


The air was chilly and still. A light drizzle had fallen most of the day and a low fog had kept planes grounded. So many hands of Hearts had been played, that when the call for the pilots came, the complaints were half-hearted at best. As the planes were rolled out and fueled, the spotty cloud and still wind promised an evening of good flying. As two RE8s took off in succession, the aerodromes in the Arras sector

End of Scenario 1

by diceslinger on 05-03-2013 at 14:11
After the dogfight between Jasta B and 19 Sqn, both flights failed their wind up check and called it a day. Since those two were the last fighters on the board that could attack, I called the game allowing the artillery spotting missions in progress to count as complete.

The scenario result was a crushing defeat to the Central Powers as the British side had 43 Victory Points to the German’s -14 Victory Points. The biggest factor was all of the photo recon missions that were able

Turn 14-24

[SIZE=3]Turn 14[/SIZE]

Albers, who narrowly escaped 6 pursuing Spads from 19 Sqn after boldly shooting down a British observation balloon, finally recovers from his spinning flight. Albers pulled up, just above the ground, clipping the newly emerging spring buds off of a stand of trees. Wasting no time, he turned his machine towards the trenches and the sanctuary of the German lines. He had no altitude however, and the Tommies in the trenches watched his entire spin to the ground.
